I'm not scared of THEM....the terrorists that have large swaths of Europe cowering tonight, and who want to see the same happen here. No, I'm scared of US.
I admit it....my talent as a political prognosticator has (so far) failed miserably. I said months ago the voters will have their little fling with Donald Trump, and then move on to a serious candidate. And I also said there is no way Hillary Clinton will still be a contender come Democratic convention time next summer. So far I'm 0 for 2.
I do like the way The Donald speaks his mind and doesn't worry about what is politically expedient. And I like the way he is self-funding his campaign, and doesn't have to sell his soul to the highest (campaign contribution) bidder. Other than that, WTH is wrong with that guy? He says the most screwball things, and the voters stand solidly behind him and just lap it up! I don't get it.
And it looks like Hillary has already won the Democratic nomination before the first primary. She has more skeletons in her closet than a Halloween haunted house! I don't get her, either.
I can look at all the candidates from both parties and see bits and pieces from each that I like, but not enough to make any one of them an attractive over-all candidate. Still, The Donald and The Hillary seem firmly entrenched as front runners, and might be the two candidates to face each other this time next year vying to be the leader of the Free World. *gulp*
AND THAT JUST SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME!
