@LOU Montana --"This trumped up and over played email scandal is the
best REPUBLICANS can come up with than I will gladly take it."The email scandal is pathetic conduct. She sent and received classified
information over a private server which could have been, and most likely was,
hacked... this according to James Comey of the FBI.There's
more... she and her husband created a charity foundation in order to rake in
millions by making promises to contributors... while a government employee and
head of the State Department. Anyone else doing it would be thrown in the
slammer.This country has had enough of the Clintons. They need to
retire someplace and get out of our lives.
I applaud Ms. McKay for publicly voicing her opinion, even when doing so may not
be popular or when it goes against what is socially acceptable. She has
obviously listened to the candidates and made an impartial and informed choice.
Ms. McKay presented a balanced argument for why she has decided to vote for
Hillary Clinton. It is interesting to note that her detractors on this comment
forum have mostly presented reasons why they loathe Hillary Clinton. Few to
none have listed reasons to support their candidate of choice. A serious
investigation of the candidates is what is required of voters in this election.
Thank you again to Ms. McKay for your thoughtful comments.
I think the author is far to intelligent to have any sincere belief in much of
what she asks us to believe about Ms. Clinton.People who spend much
of their career employed by or beholden to a political party feel obligated to
support the party's candidate. The author can check off her
satisfaction of that obligation for this election cycle.
It looked like to me that she was handcuffed with her arms behind her back as
they was putting her in the van the handcuffs dropped to the ground then she
fell into the van as they pulled her in. They took her to her daughters house
that was once a hospital than the look a like (Alisha Barnwell) of Hillary,

Take yesterday, for example. Hillary hastily left an event and nearly collapsed
while getting into her vehicle. The immediate story was that she got dizzy from
being overheated and dehydrated, but that she had recovered quickly. She
appeared briefly and told everyone she was feeling fine. This didn't add
up. Upon further investigation, it was announced that she has pneumonia and will
require days of rest.So she wasn't feeling fine.This is a small example, when compared with things like Benghazi and her
insecure email server. But it fits her pattern.Why must her story
always change as new facts come to light?
The writer has captured her positions and opinion quite well. People should
write down their reasons for supporting a particular candidate. Maybe putting
something down in writing will reveal something about yourself that you've
been hiding. Also, would you be willing to share that opinion with others and
defend it two years from now when either of these candidates have a presidential
record to reflect on?
I am amazed at how people think Hillary is even close to doing things that Trump
has done over and over: making nasty comments about anyone in this country and
other countries who disagree with him (not to mention the many illicit affairs
he almost proudly admits to). He seems to check any form of respect for others
at the dooe and just spouts whatever comes into his head with no internal
filter. Trump is one of the most narcissistic individuals ever to run for
president. He is like a 5-year-old on the playground yelling because someone
took back their own ball.What he doesn't seem to realize is
that the president is not the CEO throwing orders around and expecting everyone
to say "Yes sir". There are 2 other branches of the federal government
he would have to deal with. Good luck with that. I think the only
reason he got involved in this campaign was to be able to check it off his
I am amazed at the lies and rumors with which Republicans paint Hillary. Such
stories get perpetuated without any fact checking. It is this kind of
politicking that has me very disenchanted with the Republican party.
Her comment about the deplorable Trump supporters was less caustic than their
daily attacks on everyone that does not fit their narrow 1950's mold.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. America made the
mistake of voting for Bill Clinton after they knew of his lies, his affairs, his
contempt for law by lying under oath. There is no evidence that Hillary is any
different. There is nothing noble about anyone, man or woman, who lies to get
gain. If Hillary is too sick to remember the facts about her email server, she
is too ill to serve in any position. Those who would willing vote for a
politician who puts herself first and the people last (re: her resent statement
calling Americans a "basket of deplorables") are rejecting their duty
support the millions of Americas who died to give us the opportunity to vote for
someone who will honor his oath of office. If women are so short-sighted that
they would vote for a candidate because of her sex, then men should do the same
and vote for a man because of his sex. See, that makes absolutely no sense. We
don't vote for sex in America or because of it anymore than we would make
the mistake of voting because of race. Fool me once . . .
"Above all, Hillary Clinton is a survivor. She has been linked to
scandal."She has not just been 'linked' to scandal,
she is the perpetrator of almost all of it. That is like saying Al Capone was
linked to organized crime.She certainly is a survivor. With a
willing press who refuses to hold her accountable and the political connections
to absolve her from any legal consequences for her misdeeds, she has managed to
avoid the penalties that just about any other citizen would receive under the
same circumstances.She chose well to be a Democrat. The GOP would
never have put up with this nonsense from one of its own.
I was a Bernie voter, not because I didn't respect Clinton, but because I
knew the Republicans would be gunning for her with every permutation of
sophistry, libel, slander, misdirection, pandering, and exploiting people's
ignorance. I knew that because that's what they've been doing to her,
and her husband, and now her daughter, forever.Their outright lies,
their distortions, and their exaggerations have broken all records these last
few months.Meanwhile, Hillary as proven time and again that she is
one of the most serious, dedicated, and durable candidates. Today, for example,
she makes a public appearance knowing she has pneumonia. How many 20-year-olds
could have stood in the heat and sunlight, wearing a bullet-proof vest under a
long-sleeved pants suit, while full of antibiotics, for almost two hours?She's not only capable, she's one tough old bird! She's
got my vote, easily.
She's not for me, my friends and family. She's ethically unfit and
evidence shows today that she's physically unfit for the role of Commander
and Chief. Trump/Pence 2016!
@rdahlI could be wrong, but wasn't the first item on your list
Watergate? Wasn't that when President Nixon's team broke into
Democratic offices in the Watergate hotel in Washington DC? Don't blame
Mrs. Clinton for that one.
"He is childish and resorts to name-calling. He is opinionated, and will not
curb his tongue. He sees himself as the sole possessor of knowledge, and feels
he alone can fix things."I found this to be very funny. Trump
resorts to name calling, per the author, yet in the exact same sentence, she
calls him names. As for Hillary's 'brushes' with
scandal, I think that is trying to white wash an orange tiger. She has had more
full blown investigations than any person ever. She is a proven liar and
frankly totally untrustworthy. I do not say to vote for Trump, but
I will say I will never vote for a Clinton. I would rather have one of the Marx
Brothers in office than another Clinton.Any time I consider the
choice we have this year for President, I simply want to vomit.
Rdahl, Trump's lies, his bigotry, enslaving people to build his wealth,
cheating subcontractors, playboy morals, love for Putin, hate speeches, draft
dodging, flipflopping on issues, tax evasion and his inability to keep
confidential information confident. He is the man's man of all the wrong
warm, delightful, funny, spontaneous? Ask those that have worked for Hillary and
I do not think those descriptors come to their mind. Survivor is right, and
heaven help whoever might interfere with her getting what she wants.Hillary has had a lot of time in the political arena, but during that time
what did she accomplish? As senator she was instrumental in naming a post
office. She also supported the war in Iraq. As first lady in the white house
she fired everybody in the travel department and put her friends in the
positions. As Secretary of State, she ran for cover under sniper fire and
violated security regulations regarding secret communications.Voting
for an unqualified person to be President just to see a "glass ceiling"
broken, is irresponsible voting. If the author feel a need to vote for someone
just because she is a woman, vote for Jill Stein.The allure of
electing the first woman president is likely how many black voters felt about
Obama in 2008. By 2012, many of those disillusioned voters realized that
imagination and reality are not the same.
If you count her 40 years of lies, deceit, bad ethics, pay-for-play, etc as good
accomplishments, you are just as delusional as she is. She is the most corrupt
person to ever have been nominated for president. That would be the real history
maker, electing a known criminal.
Watergate 1974Whitewater 1978-1998Travelgate 1993Chinagate
1996Senate Campaign Donations 2000Clinton Foundation 2001-2016Wikileaks 2010Benghazi 2012Haiti Mining 2012Private emails
2015. The list goes on about her accomplishments. Fired for bad
ethics. Lies every time she speaks. Great woman to have in the presidency. Guess
people want to make history by electing the most corrupt woman they could find.
I don't care how qualified she is - I will never vote for a Clinton or a
Bush. These families have held us in their collective grip for more than 25
years. We are not Europeans. I would also say that I do not
believe for one moment she is what she says she is - because it changes all the
time to meet her need. She wants to be President for her - not the rest of us.
Besides, if you like Trump it turns out you have a 25% chance of being
"Deplorable." She is really on her side and her side alone. The rest
of us can jump in the lake and she would not blink an eye. Oh and I
am not a Trump supporter. Nope, say it how you want but HRC is a
self centered Baby Boomer and we have had enough of those folks to last another
I don't care for Trump but you lost me at "tithe payer".
That's like saying he doesn't like vanilla ice cream and using that as
Nicely put. Thank you.
Great letter! Everything you said is true. Hillary has learned to survive in the
ugly world of male politics. She has repeatedly out gunned them with facts. This
trumped up and over played email scandal is the best REPUBLICANS can come up
with than I will gladly take it. There are far worse people on the Republican
side (Dennis Hastert for example). We need Hillary not Trump.
