To The Daily Sun,
It occurred to me to ask my wife if she thought we were among the "basket of deplorables" that Clinton said makes up 50 percent of Trump's supporters. "No," she assured me. Perhaps we are part of the other half that is "frustrated by hard times and merit(s) sympathy" according to Hillary. I think maybe we belong to a third group — a group that is simply paying attention.
When the DNC chair was forced to resign in disgrace after being caught red-handed trying to tilt the election in Hillary's favor, thereby depriving Bernie Sanders supporters of their rights, Hillary named her honorary chairwoman of her campaign instead of admonishing such blatantly corrupt behavior. We also recall that months ago, when asked if her server was "wiped," she responded by asking "... with a cloth or something?" Come to find out that even when using sophisticated file shredding technology it can be difficult to eliminate every trace of those yoga lessons and other interesting tidbits.
For example, we now know that if you are an executive with the Clinton Foundation and want to get diplomatic State Department passports under the table, you could just send an email to Madame Secretary's top aide, Huma Abedin. That's among a number of emails that we're pretty sure they hoped would never see the light of day.
Surely Anne and I aren't perfect, but considering all the smoking guns, perhaps we aren't quite so racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise deplorable as Hillary suggested. However, we surely are frustrated as are millions of honest, law-abiding Americans who have grave concerns with the prospect of electing such a blatantly unethical individual as Hillary Clinton to the most powerful job on earth.
With rising world dangers, a bankrupt treasury, a crumbling military, a disintegrating infrastructure, and an abysmal K-12 educational system that has left a generation of young Americans largely unqualified to meet tomorrow's challenges, it seems crystal clear to us that a brand new direction is long overdue.
