Trump. Trouble

Trump. Trouble

I am right in the middle of the political spectrum (which I believe is a reasonable place to reside).  However, after watching Trump for the last 12 months …I think it is clear to the voting public that this guy would be a train wreck for our Nation.  His lack of depth cannot be learned despite what he says.  Truthfully …it could be learned …but this guy won’t learn it because he is not willing to grow beyond “experiencing” things.  Learning is hard work.  He has demonstrated over the last 12 months that he is not willing to invest in the hard grinding work necessary with respect to “learning” in areas that he has demonstrated a level of ignorance.  His lack of depth of Global Security issues, relationships etc, is only eclipsed by his ignorance of creating inclusion amongst the American people as well as the International Community.  I am a security and strategy nut …and would like to help any of our candidates especially when it comes to integrating and synchronizing the four instruments of power — but efforting for Trump would be a waste of time.  It is clear he does not listen to anybody and, when it comes to National & Global Security, he has no clue what he is talking about.  To be fair …Sanders is also a Train Wreck and Clinton’s “reset” button with Russia is clear past performance that she should not be the Commander in Chief either.  I am urging everybody to consider Kasich — he is moderate Republican with some Blue Dog Dem qualities.  He is a teambuilder, reasonable, and has balanced the Federal Budgt while working with the opposite party.  My vote is to give this guy a shot …because the other four candidates, to me, are unacceptable.

    Kasich IS the best choice. I hope those who are supporting the other two Republican candidates wake up soon.

    Well put sir . We definitely need someone, who respects blue collar values, and recognizes hard work. I agree.
