in response to reader comment: Confession of Partial Assent & Partial Dissent

Hi, Dajjal

Your comment about Trump as a "stalking horse" hit sadly close to home. I supported McCain and Romney, wasting money that would have been better spent on my family; but they were stalking horses indeed. Because of that experience, I have given no money to the Trump campaign.

I plan to vote for Trump, and not "throw away my vote", as you plan. I live in Oregon which, though it is unlikely at the moment, may have a sporting chance of going for the Republican in November. Oregon hasn't gone Republican since 1984, so it's worth an effort. Nationally, it doesn't look good right now for The Donald (He has to win Pennsylvania, which is Daniel Pipes' baileywick).

A Hillary Clinton presidency will be a complete disaster -- worse, I believe than Obama's. With her in power, I expect the Middle East to literally fly apart at the seams. That will set the stage for a TRULY scary US President to be elected in 2020. Forget about fears concerning Supreme Court justices: By 2028, there will likely be no more US Supreme Court.
