I'm not going to write about Donald Trump today
Lost in the Cinemax porn movie which is the Donald Trump campaign is the fact that Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent, has a plan. Not to "make America great again", but to make America greater.
And, despite what Mark "Dick" Halperin says, it's pretty easy to find: hillaryclinton.com/issues. I mean it's right there. You don't have to dig through the website 10 levels down the tree. Unlike Trump, Mrs. Clinton is running an issues-based campaign. And that gets lost in the media maelstrom which revolves over what crazy thing whacky Donald is going to say next. And while I'm more than glad that Trump is lighting his own funeral pyre, citizens are being done a disservice.
For example, here are just some tidbits from her healthcare proposals:
And college affordability, a major issue for Millennials?
Really, the list goes on. No, really, it goes on.
While Republicans appeal to people's fear, Democrats appeal to the better angels of our nature. Democrats offer actual prescriptions for the problems the country faces. If you can't make the basic effort to educate yourselves on what these proposals are, but instead focus on fripperies, then you are abdicating your role as a sovereign citizen in a republic. And that's just fine with the GOP.
Of course Hillary Clinton is now the National Salvation candidate. But she's more than that. She's an experienced public servant with a vision which will continue to perfect the union. That's what matters.
Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
