Many comments on Trump's speech are about other comments. So is this one.
Opposing Hillary, as I do, doesn't mean you need to defend Trump. Reading his speech I was most reminded of the speeches of Hitler. The man is a demagogue.Our nation with him at the helm would be a nightmare police state.
Whereas Clinton would just be the nightmare we know. The institutional insanity we're familiar with. Increasing income inequality and more wars. Unfortunately, her neocon continuation of Bush's policies might actually escalate into a nuclear war with Russia. At a minimum she'd jump start the cold war and attack Syria and Iran, while cementing economic inequality in place.
Which nightmare is worse? Does it matter? Certainly Clinton will be more able to get Congress to go along with her wars and policies to funnel more wealth upward. They are, after all, Republican policies. Trump will face hostile Dems and have only the halfhearted support of establishment Republicans.
So I think Clinton would be the more effective evil. That makes the demagogue the lesser evil.
But still evil.
They're trying to shoe-horn us into this bi-polar choice between police state domination and military/business domination, to choose which suit we want our masters to wear.
I'm not voting for that.
