Trump doesn’t represent the Republic ideal – and he never has

To The Daily Sun,

If Messrs Earle, Ewing, and Boutin are truly committed to not having Hillary Clinton elected in November, and truly want to have Republican ideals in place, then I encourage them to vote for the ticket of Gary Johnson and William Weld. Both men were successful Republican governors and would not only protect your Second Amendment rights, but would work to reduce taxation, American military involvement overseas, and move towards a balanced budget.

They are honorable men, and represent much of what was the Republican ideal pre-Reagan. They are also on the ballot in all 50 states and are so very close to hitting the threshold to be in the presidential and vice presidential debates.

Donald Trump does not represent the Republican ideal whatsoever, and never has. His lies and dishonesty are easily on par with Hillary's, with the exception that he's never done anything for anyone other than himself, so there is nothing to be said about him in regards to public service.

He is beholden to banks across the globe to the tune of close to $1 billion, including Chinese banks. His involvement with the Russians has now been clearly exposed. He has made a mockery of not just this process, but threatens to make a mockery of our nation. This is not a man worthy of our votes.

He denigrates every other aspect of America that is not white, male, and Christian. And while Messrs Earle, Ewing, and Boutin are certainly within that demographic, I'd hope that they would move beyond party politics and personal bias and do what is right for America. And that is not Donald Trump.

Clinton Foundation is the stuff of Third World dictatorships

To The Daily Sun,

The cream of the Clinton Foundation corruption seems to be rising to the top of this presidential election cycle and it looks like Hillary was using the State Department as her own "pay to play" scheme.

The Associated Press recently reported that more than half of the private individuals she met while serving as Secretary of State were donors to the Clinton Foundation. This was after she gave President Obama an ethics agreement stating that there would be a "wall" between the foundation and her duties as the nation's top diplomat. Many news agencies are calling for the complete shutdown of the Clinton Foundation, especially since she is running for the office of president, perhaps the highest office in the world.

These are stunning revelations because foreign governments and major corporations should not be allowed to buy access to government interests simply because they donated large sums of money to a person in power. This is the stuff of Third World countries and dictatorships. The United States of America certainly deserves better than a person who will sell out the interests of their country for their own personal gain. That is the true definition of greed and selfishness.
