Each of us have unique gifts that most people hone over their lifetimes. Intellect is something that can be acquired, so even for folks who might start out with a lower IQ they can acquire deeper knowledge & understanding by simply exerting some time and energy to learn. That said, it is clear that their remains a portion of society that finishes in the “ smarts department” about where they started out. My observation is that some folks are intellectually lazy, and quite content to let others tell them what they should think. This has to be the segment the Media hopes is listening.
The allegations about Trump go back 10-15 years or so, which places most of these reported transgressions in the 2000—2005 time line. Legislation and social behavior evolved over the 70’s and 80’s continuing until the present that made , at least from a legal and employment vantage point very risky to do the things that Trump is alleged to have done, and certainly admitted to saying in the now infamous audio. Any woman who was verbally or physically accosted by Mr. Trump had every opportunity to come forward and report his transgressions. They had the law on their side, and larger majorities of society that would have been empathetic to what happened to them. I personally fired male employees for nothing more than making sexually suggestive remarks to female colleagues. By the 80’s the EEOC and the possible civil costs in settling sexual harassment lawsuits made prevention a top priority. Last but certainly not least is the timing of these women who have come forward. One must ask why they waited so long and if they are being manipulated and pushed to perhaps embellish in some instances.
The Media, and certainly Trumps opponents are hoping that the immediate and certain revulsion most woman have when hearing Trumps very words are justification alone to not cast a ballot for him. I simply believe that portion of the electorate is nowhere near as large as some would have you believe.
Women have a moral compass , they also have judgment, they instinctively know that Hillary is a criminal at heart, she has long lost any claim to even basic human decency. When you skim money intended to assist Haitian children……when you lie repeatedly under oath, when you casually sacrifice America’s national security interest for either your personal convenience and or money grubbing self -interests, when your greatest achievement after 30 years in the public eye is getting a couple of Post Office’s re-named , it isn’t so hard to envision many women voters out there who recognize the vital interest of a Nation is at stake. These women voters recognize Hillary’s well documented character flaws , they also recognize her poor judgment as more troubling than anything Trump has said or done.. It isn’t lost on women the horrific treatment of the women who her husband has accosted ( some say actually raped) and the vicious attacks she herself directed at these women, as if her husband had no role in the matter. Hillary promotes herself as a champion of women’s issues when women of intellectual substance see right through her self- serving and false proclamations. Besides her daughter and mother, the only woman Hillary has ever cared about is Hillary.
I remain optimistic that my fellow sister citizens are more focused on our safety as a nation, and how Hillary has worsened that , our economic growth is non –existent and her open admission that she will raise taxes and spending will only worsen that , our dangerous Immigration nightmare must be addressed, terrorism must be vigorously fought, and the staggering debt that jeopardizes our children & grandchildren’s very future must be addressed. Knowing the types of people she will appoint to the U.S Supreme Court alone is reason enough to never cast a ballot for her November 8th.
Trump may be a very poor example for how a man should behave , but he has built successful businesses, he had finished projects on time and often under budget, and he certainly isn’t concerned about political correctness, a social poison that hinders any tangible progress on so many fronts. He will cut taxes, he will address the runaway immigration problem, and he will make some progress on numerous other vital fronts because he is someone who knows how to get things done.
Flawed , yes indeed Trump is, but no one who loves this country and cares about salvaging it can deny Trump is a superior choice, warts and all.
