So, the Democrats have worked really hard to get Trump into the Republican campaign so that Mrs. Clinton would look good in comparison, as I talked about in a couple of previous blogs:
When you read the news, with Trump's not-so-palatable financial dealings getting plastered all over everything, think about the fact that it was mostly crossover voting in the primaries which pushed him so far ahead so fast, and made the clown look legitimate in the first place. This news is not so new at all.
Look at yourself in the mirror.
Were you fooled?
Did you campaign for someone better?
Are you involved at all?
Freedom has its costs: http://joel-for-president.blogspot.jp/2016/03/absolute-freedom-and-campaign-promises.html
Are you willing to pay the price?
That's okay. As has been said before, "the office" has a tendency to "make the man". Or woman, as the case may be. Maybe Trump or whichever of the two Democratic candidates remaining standing will "grow into the office".
I don't think the number of Americans who choose evil over good on a daily basis has come close enough to the halfway point to destroy the Great Experiment in freedom (not democracy!) just yet. (I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Not yet. I was really frustrated and depressed that day. Thinking about FBAR still gets me pretty negative pretty fast, though. The Feds used to keep their hands out of other countries' taxes.)
Don't forget, democracy is a red herring. We are ultimately free. We get what we choose, in the end. No government ever lasted long that contradicted too far the will of the people it tried to govern, but that is also a side issue.
The experiment was not an experiment in democracy. It was in whether we could stand to be governed by a government that recognized our freedom and tried to help us to be free.
Which is basically saying the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Your faith remains alive in your heart, as long as you keep believing.
It's going to be a difficult four years. Keep the faith.
