Whatever gripes you have about the government, you can't blame Trump

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I can't wait for this election to be over. We are being subjected to the nastiest assault on our personal self respect that I have ever seen. People are suffering from stress anxiety just from watching the nightly news. The belligerent back and forth brings out the absolute worst in a great many of those on the left who will stop at nothing to destroy anyone on their "enemy list." They poison the political process to the point that many Americans live in fear of anything and everything.

So today we have the results of a recent survey (yes, another survey) from Chapman University at the Wilkinson College of Art, Humanities and Social Sciences. America's Top Fears 2016. A random country wide poll of over 1,500 people, were asked 79 questions about what kinds of things they personally worried about the most. You may be shocked to learn that fully 10 percent of Americans truly fear a zombie apocalypse.

The survey was broken down into 11 so-called Domains of Fear. These included crime, economics, environment, government, illness and death, immigration, personal phobias, and such. Twenty percent said they were "afraid or very afraid" of crime, becoming a victim of a crime, illegal immigration, or serious illness. Thirty percent said their worst fears were of world war, nuclear attack, drunk drivers and pollution. Forty percent worried about terrorists, terrorism, money and finance, the Affordable Healthcare Act, and government restrictions on guns and ammunition. But the number one thing that we most worry about at 60 percent is corrupt government officials.

So this is where we are just two weeks away from the climax of this grotesque exercise in democracy. For better or for worse, we are presented with two damaged candidates. The Clintons' trail of dirt, lies, underhanded corruption and stink have followed them around for 30 years and woe to anyone who gets in their way.

Whatever gripes that you might have with the government, you can not blame any of it on Donald Trump. He has never held any public office. He has built a mega billion-dollar enterprise legally and honestly, providing good jobs to many thousands of people and he has a vision of bringing prosperity back to America. With Hillary we can be 100 percent certain to have more dirt, corruption and stink.

So what are you most afraid of? At this time in our history, we have only one good choice to invest in our future and he is Donald Trump.
