EARLY ON, IN THIS ELECTION YEAR, I started voicing my opinion of the various candidates running for President of the U.S. I have voiced my opinion of Bernie and Hillary, neither good. I have voiced opinions of some of the Republican candidates, but they started dropping out so fast i gave up on that. Now, we are left with Trump and probably Hillary. Neither if which I like. As the saying goes, when you vote for the lesser of two evils, you are still voting for evil. So, which evil would be the best for the country. As my wife and I were talking the other day, there will other candidates on the ballot for president. The problem is, no one much has heard of them and the race will be between Trump and probably Hillary. So, I will probably voter for Trump. I think he is not a good person. He is a profane bully. But, he is a business man and will try to pass laws that will favor businesses in America and keep a lot of them from going out of the country. He will protect the 2nd amendment, which Hillary has said she will not. He will be for a stronger military. He will not have a good relationship with the media, I think, and he will step on a lot of toes. And mostly he won't care. He will probably have the opportunity to chose some new Supreme Court justices and they will be better suited to what the country needs. So, yes, even though I don't like Trump, I think he will be better than Hillary.
On another note, there have been three amber alerts this week. OK, there probably has been more than three, but three that I am aware of. The first one was earlier this week when a 11 year old Navajo girl was abducted as she walked home from the bus stop after school. Her body was found south of The Shiprock, physically abused and then murdered. Her younger brother, abducted at the same time, was let go and he identified the killer, who is now in custody. The second one was a 4 year old boy who was abducted from school by his non custodial mother. He was found later in the day at a motel in Albuquerque and is now back with his father and his mother is now in custody. The third one is a brother and sister abducted in Utah by their non custodial parents. They were located in a motel in Gallup New Mexico and are OK.
The purpose of this post is this, will the new president and any new congress members seek to change laws that will be favorable to families and what is needed to strengthen the family, or will they continue to erode the laws that allows this kind of behavior to continue. Yes, there have always been predators. yes, there will always be, until the millennium, but it seems to me that the powers that be are only fostering these things by the laws they pass, and the way they cater to a minority, who seem to squeak until they are heard, far above the voice of reason. So, pay attention who you vote for, not just for president, but for all national as well as local candidates.
AND THAT'S THE VIEW FROM THE DITCH BANK
