Well here we are, at the threshold of another presidential election with two flawed candidates to choose from, neither of whom are particularly attractive to me.

On one hand, a brash, outspoken, totally politically incorrect businessman who spent a lifetime using the business system and entrepreneurial skills to enrich himself, with no record of public service.

On the other hand, a career politician who spent a lifetime using the political system and political skills to enrich herself, with a long record of public service.

Both records, which are well-documented elsewhere, can be described as dubious and sketchy, at best.

But, Clinton’s public service record is filled with smoke and mirrors, parsing of half-truths, political speak of the highest degree, mysterious deaths, and failures, such as Benghazi.

History is filled with examples of people who were suddenly thrust into a position of responsibility and accountability, with no previous experience, and rose to the occasion and performed admirably. Will this happen with Trump? I don’t know, but it can be possible.

What is probable, is that Clinton, if elected, will resort to her public business as usual, and continue to perform as she has in the past.

In this case, the devil that we know, will be worse than the one we don’t know.

For this reason, I ask you to consider your vote carefully. I will vote for Trump.
