Midnight Reflection on the Presidential Election of 2016

Here it is 1:30 a.m., and I am upstairs on this desktop computer taking a break from getting rid of most of my books (I’m that age now) so that the Goodwill-type of organization that is going to pick up the big box outside of my front door, tomorrow by 7 a.m., will be totally full and not simply 1/8th of the way full, as it is presently.

In the midst of this “delightful” chore, of course my mind runs to Donald Trump.  I still get cold sweats when I think that he possibly could be our president.  How did this disaster to our nation ever happen?  Have you ever observed a more superficial and erratic person in your life?  I haven’t.  When I contrast him with our Founding Fathers, especially with Thomas Jefferson, I am simply horrified.  If Trump becomes president, instead of the world’s population being humbled and inspired that America exists as a beacon of democratic hope for all (as Jefferson envisioned), America will become despised by the rest of the world because they will know that the majority of Americans chose Donald Trump to represent us.  He is the antithesis of everything that President Obama has dreamed of, and accomplished for, our nation.

America is on the brink of choosing one of two very different worldviews for America’s future.  This unfolding choice is as dramatic as a Greek tragedy, and I have no doubt that God is watching us.  As a commentator said, this morning, if Donald Trump wins and becomes president, his model for winning will filter down to our states and local elections for years to come.  This election will finally determine the trajectory for America that has been building to this crescendo for 40 years.

Please do not waste your votes on Johnson or Stein.  Please vote for Hillary Clinton.  Georgia just might make the difference in this election.  Let us not forget that. Trust me.  Hillary Clinton is a woman of substance, of purpose, emotionally mature, intellectually gifted, a born leader, and committed to making the lives of others better.  That is what is within her spirit and within her soul.  All the negatives about her have been stereotypical images projected onto her by others, and now our young adults have preconceived negative opinions of her because of the shallow thought patterns of too many Americans.  We must see truth, elect this lady, and be glad that she is healthy enough to see us through the next four years mainly because her worldview for America is the antithesis of that of Donald Trump.

One Response to Midnight Reflection on the Presidential Election of 2016

    In my view, both candidates are very dangerous, but in different ways, and with Trump’s worst danger being more short term. I may vote for Clinton on the grounds that Trump’s danger includes increased risk of nuclear war, which is a VERY big downside risk.
    How did we get here? The fundamental problem is bad ideas, which have been spreading and growing throughout Western civilization since Immanuel Kant started the process by saving the altruist morality from reason. These bad ideas have led to misguided statist policies which have had a variety of bad consequences, making people dissatisfied and leaving us with the short-term prospect of even more statism. More fundamentally, they have confused most people on a fundamental level, leading to all sorts of mistakes.
    Ayn Rand has provided better ideas which, once they are understood and accepted widely enough, will fix this. The question is, will this be in time to save this civilization, or will there be another Dark Age, with the fix having to wait for a rebuilding of civilization?
