I have been giving some thought to the vagaries of the election. A conversation with young Horatius yesterday had me thinking a clarified my thoughts (I will withhold further elaboration at this point since you Dear Reader, in your mind will substitute a different verb than clarification in this sentence)
As you are well aware, I voted for the strangely coiffed blowhard.
It wasn't an easy choice, but there you go. He is the best of a bad lot.
But truth be told, Trump is my best choice because of his crudeness and lack of sophistication. He will probably attempt stupid things that will arouse the ire of all "right thinking" folk. When that happens, all of the checks and balances of our pretty-damn-fine system will kick in and stop the stupid. Life is good.
Hillary, on the other hand, is a smart, sneaky, two faced bitch who will like her husband before her, would play the system for everything it is worth and put together a package of "legislation" that would gut the system further for the sake of her friends. We probably wouldn't even notice it until about 2025, after she left office. Then we would realize, for the second time, just how badly the Clintons had fucked us.
