Worry about war
There are just four short weeks before the election. Many facts have been presented as to why Donald Trump represents not just an unqualified person to become president but, in fact, a dangerous option. Trump is often touted as a successful businessman who will use his skills to fix our government. The foundation of this notion is the belief that government is just another business, and that Trump’s skills will be just what the doctor ordered. In fact, government is not just a business. Although Trump is known for his “you’re fired” expression, and in his business organization can single-handedly fire or hire personnel, it does not work that way in government, where it is very difficult, if not impossible in some circumstances, to fire anyone or use this threat to get your way.
The secret of success in dealing with our own government and with foreign governments is, clearly, possessing diplomatic and negotiating skills. We simply do not get Congress or foreign countries to agree with our proposals by threatening to fire them if they don’t. Now we have two unpopular presidential candidates. The question is, which one has the personality and experience to work with Congress and the rest of the world?
Think hard on this question, for we are as close to war as we can get and we certainly should not risk electing a dangerous, emotionally unstable person like Trump. Our children and grandchildren are going to live with the potential threat of nuclear war.
Forget all the other arguments for or against selecting your candidate. Do you really want Donald Trump’s hand on the nuclear button, knowing his personality? Think people, think.
