I was going to wait till the day before the election to post this, but I can't wait that long, I feel that much more than my personal dislike of the Dumpster is at stake. I'll go on hating the man, but hopefully not as president. At stake is democracy itself, and your future. This is a man who is acting more like the dictator of a small, insignificant Central American country than the possible leader of the most powerful nation on the planet. Think about it (and that's a problem for Trumpers!), do you want a vindictive, thin-skinned, angry dude who is concerned about perceived personal slights, and is uninformed about the state of the world, making decisions based on how he can personally benefit, instead of the good of the country? 

 

The media is almost totally responsible for the rise of this man, so, in a way, Trump was right, the media's coverage is slanted, but not in the way he thinks. It's slanted towards 'how can we get the highest rating and rake in the bucks?' They are not calling him on obvious lies, and overreact when Trump plays then like a marionette and says that 'They're against me!", so the media gets defensive and goes out of their way to prove him wrong, hence the intense coverage of Clinton, when they, if they had any guts, should be holding Trump's feet to the fire, and pointing out his obvious and plentiful lies. But, they're afraid of him, so they let stuff go. 

 

Can you imagine if Hillary did or said just one of the controversial, unbelievably-ignorant, and racist things that he's said and done over the last year plus? The media has had a year long orgasm over this man, and we've had to watch. I know there's nothing new in what I'm saying, and I know I'm sounding like a broken record, but now the day of reckoning is almost upon us, and if you want to stop this disaster with ferret hair from being able to take his vindictive, dangerously-uniformed dog and pony show to Washington, VOTE, and vote for sanity, vote Clinton! There ARE no excuses, no 'my vote doesn't matter!', because it does. Your future's on the ballot, my future's on the ballot, and America's future is on the ballot. Win or, hopefully, lose, he's already done irreparable, incalculable harm to our system of government, all to feed his immense and unquenchable ego--VOTE!
