This observer has already commented upon the rock and hard place America finds herself; that for all intents and purposes and being left helpless against the leftists' machinations and imaginations, it will be really, REALLY hard for America to recover to the place she once held as a nation of a people who were free to anything they wanted without involving the rest of the world, but got caught up with others who claim to be American: but the deeds tell a different narrative. The Clinton consortium is of that ilk.
Watching the Clinton foray into American politics unfold from decades ago, the presentation was as fascinating as the media could make it; but the undercurrent theme was dangerous fro the outset. Allowing this type of 'democratic' (in name only) process unfold under the Clintons during the nineties was a hard thing to philosophically endure, since it has been a contention from a lot farther back in history that America is specifically a republic, in spite of the democratic overtones.
Communistic inclinations such as the current Democratic candidate's promotions indicate is easier to introduce in a 'democratic' environment than in a truly republic one, because the power money that seeks the fortunes to be stolen from the taxpayer largesse can induce the poor to give them that very power much quicker than in a representative format. But even as that is so, the institutionalist republican mindset that has Congress playing the Clinton game, there will be no winners. And the taxpayer still picks up the tab; that is until they can no longer print the money.

Everyone has one sort or another opinion of Trump. No one can pin him down, however, because he is unique. But one thing he is not; no matter how badly he is portrayed, he is not a usual suspect politically, like the Clintons are. And make no mistake, if Ms Rodham is given the nod, Mr. Clinton will get his third term, bringing American much further along in its current globalist path to the annihilation of a free America, Clinton's Alinskyism notwithstanding.

Put it in this context, as we remember her slogan about being stronger together, this means whatever freedom Americans have left, this will be required to be surrendered to fit the paradigm of a continuing Clinton administration. So sorry, this elector does not abide with that irrational notion at all; and from all observations, Trump does not show any willingness to take my freedom away.
