Just Rambling….. or maybe not.

I think this will just be a rambling post, since I don’t really know what to talk about.

There is one question I’ve have on my mind, that I’ve been meaning to ask but have always decided not to because I don’t really want to talk about the Presidential Elections. Though I think I’m just going to do it now since it’s almost time for the elections.

Is anyone else tired of hearing about the Race for President?

I know I am.

I really wish they were over.

I am really tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Neither one is perfect and neither one in my opinion is worthy, at this point, of being President of the United States. I’m sorry if that upsets any of their supporters but that how I feel.

Really that could be said to be the truth. I mean in a perfect world all the scandals they have had would have derailed their campaigns.

I mean how could anybody have a private server that could have been hacked by anybody, and deleted thousands of emails an expect anybody to vote for you as President.

If the FBI investigation had finished during the primaries an the FBI director cam out and called Clinton a lair, I’d bet anyone that Bernie Sanders would have been the Democratic Candidate.

I mean how could a President of the United States believe that someone who could have possibly put classified information at risk on a private server, is the right person to be President?

Now I’m not saying Trump is the right person either. Though maybe he’s what the country needs right now. I mean we had a President who apologized to nearly everyone and also seemed to try and appease everyone. A hint from history, appeasement doesn’t not work. Not to mention he made us seem weak in cases by saying one thing and not following through with it. (Or has everyone forgotten the whole line in the sand). Maybe the country needs a person who will follow through with what they say and show that the United States won’t back down.

Now conspiracy theorists out there may believe that means the Elections are rigged. An they have the right to think that under the First Amendment.  Now I’m not a big believer in conspiracy theory’s, though I will admit that there are times when I think that maybe things are rigged.

I mean how could an Attorney General whose department is investigating someone for a crime not know that the one thing you should be seen doing is talking to the husband of that person. (I mean isn’t that like the first thing you do when you know someone that is being investigated?)

I’ll give both the AG and Bill Clinton the benefit of the doubt that it was an accident that they met that day. Even if it was an accident one of them should have known they shouldn’t have been near each other an one should have changed their plans.

I know that’s what I would have done if I had been in either one of their shoes.

I mean meeting an then one of them changing their plans sounds a lot better then they met and neither changed their plans, or at least to me it does.

Look at that I started this off as just a rambling piece and then got into talking about the elections.

Anyway like I said I’m just tired of hearing about the elections.

Oh also, I’m getting tired about hearing everyone, including the President, talking about how a persons vote is wasted if they don’t vote for Clinton or Trump.

I mean talk about trying to influence an election, or to take away a persons right to choose by basically telling them who to vote for, Anyway that’s a matter for another day.

Why are Donald Trump and Ben Carson leading?

The reason Donald Trump and Ben Carson are leading the polls for Republican presidential candidate is simple, they are not politicians and that is what the voters want right now. If you look at all the candidates for President, both Democrat and Republican, there are only three people running for their party’s nomination who have never held office before. Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Carly Florina. surprisingly they are all running for the Republican nomination.

All the other candidates running have all held other offices, wether it be a Governor or United States Senator, they are rehearsed on reading from preplanned speeches and on how to tell voters what they want to hear to get them elected.

The one thing, or at least in my opinion, that attracts the voters to Donald Trump isn’t because of The Apprentice, or that he acts more like he’s an entertainer. It’s because  or the most part, he doesn’t seem to be reading from a written speech. He seems, again at least to me,  like he is actually talking to the people rather than read a speech then take questions and never really get to the point. Trump also seems to be passionate about the issues that most Americans cared about. I mean most of the issues Trump has been talking about have been problems for years and many people wanted things done about, and he is actually talking about doing something about those problems. Unlike a politician who says that they will do something and then it’s like four years later and nothing has been done about it.

I don’t know a lot about Carson but the principal of how he isn’t a politician still applies, and that is why people like him, as well as Trump, and why they are doing so well in the poll.

Thats why I believe the age of the Politician, or at least the politician who reads from a preplanned speech, is over.
