I realize that most of the polls have Hillary ahead by a few points, the polls in the battleground states are very close, and it is difficult for any Republican to win the Electoral College because the Democrats have a solid advantage with California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and other large states.
But given all that, I find it difficult to believe that a person as corrupt as Hillary will be president of the United States. We have had elections where there are clear differences in the policies of the candidates, such as Mondale vs. Reagan and Nixon vs. McGovern, but we have never had a candidate who everyone admits is corrupt and lies like Hillary.
The main recommendation for Hillary seems to be that the FBI's Director Comey does not believe that there is "clear evidence" of criminal intent to violate the statutes dealing with classified information. It is undisputed that she acted with extreme negligence by using a private unsecured email server and that there is evidence of criminal intent, although not clear enough for Comey. We still have no reasonable credible, innocent explanation why she used a private email server that endangered our national security.
The only reasonable explanation is that she used the private server to hide the pay-for-play scheme in the Clinton Foundation.
Hillary's entire public service career reeks of corruption and lies, starting with her representation of a 41-year-old man who raped a 12-year-old girl and then cackling about how she got the charges reduced by attacking the credibility of the 12-year-old victim while she knew the rapist was guilty. This is important because she has always held herself out as fighting for women and children, yet her conduct shows her hypocrisy. Just as she attacked the 12-year-old girl, she attacked the female victims of Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct.
We have the selling of a pardon to Marc Rich, Whitewater, Travelgate, FBI files on Republicans, lying about Benghazi, attacking the families of the victims of Benghazi, appeasement of Iran on the nuclear deal, and the general mess in the Middle East.
She is still under investigation for the pay-for-play in the Clinton Foundation. For example, WikiLeaks released emails that show that the Clintons paid for Chelsea's wedding with funds from the Clinton Foundation:
Doug Band, formerly a top aide to President Bill Clinton, griped about the former first daughter's spending in a Jan. 4, 2012, email released by WikiLeaks.
The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents…," Band wrote to John Podesta, now Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman.
Not even her supporters point to any achievement by Hillary. She has run a savage attack to personally destroy Donald Trump because she has nothing to offer.
Trump has advocated a populist agenda of reducing tax rates, securing the border, enforcing our immigration laws, rescinding the Iran appeasement deal, repealing Obamacare, renegotiating our trade deals, and defeating radical Muslim terrorists. He has had to fight the MSM, much of the conservative media, and many Republicans. Yet he is virtually tied with Hillary, who has the full support of the MSM, all Democrats, and some Republicans.
In summary, there is no reason to vote for Hillary. In plain language, she is a liar, incompetent, and corrupt. I cannot believe that a majority of American voters in the crucial states will vote to elect her.
Trump is far superior and will make an excellent president.
