Only Americans can make the choice. Whatever comments are made here in the UK, about Trump or Clinton, we have no right to say how the American People should Vote.
It is without doubt, one of the most fascinating yet worrying Presidential Elections I have followed since I started watching American Elections and Politics, when President Johnson who was then Vice President took over the Office of President from President Kennedy on the fateful day November 22, 1963 as though any of us old enough could forget what happened. As it has been said many a time, that’s when America lost its innocence.
I watched and supported Bobby Kennedy when he ran for President and then he too was Assassinated. I had always wanted to be in America when the campaigning was under way, and indeed I was in America when Richard Nixon was running for the Office of President in 1972. I did not support Nixon but a relative I was staying with was potty about Nixon and had me helping out in one of the campaign branches. I hated it I was all for George McGovern.
Now America has to choose again, and what a choice there is you have Hillary Clinton and if she wins she becomes the First Woman President of the United States. Or, you can choose Donald Trump I guess he could be called a Politician now, but he is a Businessman.
I am not going to make any comments about either one of them. The American People have their own views as to whom they believe would be the better President. All that matters is that whoever wins keeps ALL the Promises they have made to the People. As here in this Country, there are desparate People in America crying out for help they have been let down so badly in the last eight years.
In all the years I have been following the Elections and the choice of President, I have never witnessed such an incompetent, ineffectual President as Obama. I just don’t know why he was elected to a second term but that was the choice of the majority. On TV here we have seen documentaries of small Towns in America, large Cities absolutely left to rot – make no mistake we have big problems here, but it is shocking to see the dreadful absolutely dreadful hardships, the desperation of the people, not just “Rednecks” as the Clintons call them. Blue collar and white collar – personally I hate all these terms that are used to describe people.
How America votes and who they choose matters to us in the UK, having a Strong President having a Strong America is so terribly important not just to America but to the UK to the rest of the World. I was born 1949 and I have never known America not to be the strong Nation we all look to, for the last Eight Years that cannot be said, for me it is so sad to see that America has lost its strength because of such an ineffectual President, I personally will be pleased to see the back of Obama, he has ruined so much of America, oh yes all his rich friends White and Black have remained rich but what about the ordinary hardworking or out of work people White and Black? I apologise if I have caused any offence, it is not intended. This is my personal opinion.
Only when the Voters go into the Booths to Vote only then will the truth be told as to who will win Clinton or Tump. I believe there are so many people who are too afraid to say Trump when asked, the booths will prove the truth.
I feel sorry for America, they deserve far more honest decent Candidates, but this is the choice for them Clinton/Trump. Right at this time I should be in San Francisco and I was so looking forward to watching the campaigning and perhaps picking up some campaign Buttons or even a Campaign Hat. Unfortunately, I found out these items are not allowed to be sold abroad? I am so disappointed that due to ongoing health problems, my Doctor regarded me as “not fit enough” to go to San Francisco, next year is on though.
I wish all of those that go to Vote “Good Luck”, and please God no violence whatever the decision is. My very Best wishes for the future.
