I know I will piss off some folks, and some may even go so far as to unfriend me on Facebook, but I am going to step into this national fray, utilize my First Amendment rights, then step right back out.
Hillary Clinton is cancer.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer they have two basic options; treat it with dangerous chemicals and radiation, or do nothing. If they o nothing they are going to die, yet if they poison their body with chemicals and radiation to eradicate the cancer they may still die, but they have a fighting chance to survive.
I have heard all the rhetoric about Donald Trump regarding his lack of political experience, the fact his company went bankrupt before he became a billionaire, his open microphone fiasco with Billy Bush, to all his alleged sexual assaults that have come forth in the past two weeks, right before the election.
Before anyone starts yelling and screaming let me point out that men do boast when among other men and in private conversation. I have heard the very same thing among women, and when I mentioned something about it they told me I “was just one of the girls.” Yeah, that helped my ego on many levels.
As far as saying alleged sexual assaults, sexual assault is a crime and as a crime nobody is guilty until proven so by admission or court of law. Before anyone goes on to say I do not know how hard it is for women to come forth when they have been sexually assaulted should understand I have worked with, dated, and been friends with many women who have been assaulted. I also know men who have been sexually assaulted by women. Think how hard it is for men to come forward in that instance.
People will claim the sexual assault claims are only a part of the campaign to smear Trump. That may or may not be so, but it is up to the courts to decide that and not those of us who do not have first hand knowledge.
Next, we can look at Hillary. People will say she has been scrutinized and vetted more than any woman in history because of the many investigations but she has not been charged nor convicted of anything. This is true, but why does it seem she is always involved in situations where she is investigated?
I am going to introduce you to something called proximity.
The legal definition of proximity is the Gestalt principle of organization holding that objects or events that are near to one another are perceived as belonging together as a unit.
Hillary had a private email server that she used for federal business, this is not in dispute. The fact she used a private email server for State Department communications is also illegal, that is not in dispute (per FBI Director, James Comey). That she lied about deleting emails in violation of federal law (36 C.F.R. § 1222.24 and 36 C.F.R. § 1236.22(b)) is also not in dispute according to the FBI. Her not being indicted for the illegal activities shocked the nation.
To enforce the illegality of her actions Comey ended his speech by saying, “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.
Benghazi, Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, Chinagate, her Cattle Futures Miracle, Lootergate, the Norman Hsu incident, and more recently the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Family Foundation, and now the emails leaked by Wikileaks.
The possible scandals surrounding the Clinton Foundations are still coming forward, but I find it interesting that the Clinton camp has not refuted the emails that have been leaked that show malfeasance among her staff, the DNC, and herself. Nor have they refuted the emails that show collusion between the Clinton campaign and the Correct the Record SuperPAC and the Priorities USA Action SuperPAC, which violates federal election laws.
Now back to proximity.
Hillary has proximity to all of these events, actions, and organizations, and under the legal definition of proximity it would appear she has had her hand, either directly or indirectly, in each of these scandals. Just because she has not been indicted or found guilty in accordance to law does not mean she is not involved. Even the old mobsters were able to beat racketeering and murder charges easily, but ended up falling due to tax law.
Donald Trump also has proximity.
Yes, he did say those vile things on a hot mic, yes there is a current lawsuit against him by Katie Johnson for rape, yes his organization has been involved in thousands of suits, but he has not been criminally charged with anything, much like Hillary. The difference is he also has not been investigated for illegal activity other than discrimination in the 1970s.
He has had proximity to thousands of young women of which only a handful have come forward with claims of inappropriate behavior or sexual assault. Yes he has had proximity to many lawsuits, both as a plaintiff and as a defendant, but when you look at his business and the legalities of real estate and contracts it is amazing there have not been more.
There is also the proximity of these women coming forward after he invited the accusers of Bill Clinton to the debate and the proximity of the election.
Yes, Trump is a misogynist, yes he is crass, yes he speaks before he thinks, and yes, he is a hard pill to swallow.
Now back to my original statement; Hillary Clinton is cancer.
We know the destruction Hillary has caused already over the years being involved directly and indirectly in politics. She has been caught in many lies in her official capacities. Just like cancer she eats away at what it means to be a free America. Her camp has already revealed what they think about “needy Latinos,” Catholics, Southerners, and Bernie Sanders supporters, thus further alienating people.
Trump, as stated earlier, is a hard pill to swallow, much like the chemotherapy of cancer treatment. It makes you sick, but it is a better path to take than letting cancer run wild and eventually destroying you.
Ok, it is dark now, I am tired and hungry, and I feel it is time for me to back out now. I have said my piece, I am going to vote for Trump against the wishes of many of my good friends, but we must vote our conscious whether those around us agree to our decision or not. It is, after all, my decision.
Before any third party folks say there is another choice, I am sorry but I have not been impressed with Gary Johnson or Jill Stein. Hell, Johnson has demonstrated on several occasions he ahs no clue about foreign relations or even name a foreign leader.
Anyway, I’m off now. You can flame if you want but it is not going to change a thing with me, and contretemps will do nothing but unbosom your sophistic reasoning.
