Day 56 – My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than just against Trump.
Truth matters.
I am breaking form today a little in light of tonight’s debate. Anyone who’s paid any attention to anything I’ve said here and elsewhere know that the thing that is making me froth at the mouth is the demise of truth and honesty.
I watch a lot of talking heads TV. The two big questions EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM – both sides (yes, I watch Fox) – is asking are:
Should moderators fact check?
Which Donald Trump will show up? (I’m not addressing this one here because I can’t do it and be positive, which is my rule.)
The fact that we can’t count on our political leaders to simply NOT LIE is criminal. People don’t trust government for a good reason. I started this blog (and believe me, it’s practically a second job), in part, because I was dismayed by the lies, half-truths and obfuscations. As those who have followed this also know, I started it because I felt Hillary was (almost) as much a part of the problem as anyone else. I agree with anyone and everyone that she could/should be more forthcoming and not always retreat to vagueness and obfuscation. I am holding her feet to the fire too.
BUT – She is not “Lyin’ Hillary.”
In fact, she is the most honest politician in this race – and I’m going back to the primaries – 20 people who thought they deserved to be our leader.
If you do nothing else, PLEASE, please, please, please read the attached articles so you know, from objective sources, where the candidates stand. If this is the only one of my posts where you read the attachments, that’s okay (a little dismaying, but I can live with it).
