Well it has been a while since I have posted anything to this blog.
Let me rectify that right now.
Some thoughts to catch us all up for the last month or so (I was sick for almost a whole month while working, only took 1 day off and got back in the saddle again).
I think Bernie Sanders COULD win the nomination (still not likely due to super delegates, but anyway…) yes, Bernie Sanders COULD win the nomination AND I think Bernie COULD win the Presidency even though the GOP will have a field day with his “Socialism” thing.
I still think he could win and being that we are in the season of “primaries” NOW is the time for PURITY TESTS. Having said THAT, I will vote for Hillary Clinton IF she wins the nomination even if there is party elite meddling. Why? 2 words … Supreme Court!
Do I think Hillary is basically an Eisenhower type Republican (at best) in Democratic clothing? YES! YES! YES I do! But if the only thing she can do for ME (and the nation) is to get at least 1 or possibly more US Supreme Court Justices to replace at least 1 or more Republican placed Justices… I’ll call it a win. Anything else above and beyond that will be icing on the cake.
Bill Clinton … corporatist, Obama también! But … say what you will, they both gave us 4 US Supreme Court Justices that have voted on some things that could have an effect on my every day life (and yours too!), We’ll go into THAT in another post some day.
My prediction (back to the elections) is … Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump
Some would argue that Hillary is more electable, but we’ll see. She does have some baggage and COULD motivate people on the other side of the aisle to come out just to vote against her. Then again, some might do the same for Bernie re his “socialism”.
I just think that Hillary draws more negatives than Bernie does. But that’s my opinion.
I like this election cycle because at least the “status quo” has been put on notice that we the people (on both sides of the aisle have had enough! We’re angry and we’re not gonna take it anymore!) This is why both “The Donald” and “Feel the Bern” are so popular right now.
Watch Hillary and the Super Delegates thing … this thing ain’t over, the Democratic Party Establishment obviously likes Hillary more than Bernie (that could be another post in and of itself) I think they will have the super delegates going in Hillary’s favor over Bernie, but hey, reality is stranger than fiction … we’ll see.
I’ll vote for whoever the Democratic candidate is, because come on, the GOP has gone wayyyyy off the deep end, they look … sigh … like they are (I’m sorry to say it this way) BAT SHIT CRAZY. If the GOP had an Eisenhower type Republican to vote for against Hillary, I could possibly vote for that candidate, but they’ll never get my vote the way they are going. Then we haven’t even gotten into the possible Gridlock if a President Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton DOES win … do they at least get a majority Democratic Senate to work with? If not, buckle up, this is going to be a bumpy ride!
