The LuLac Edition #3338, November 3rd, 2016
Very true. I don’t believe that most people who support Trump are racists, homophobes and everything else. But a few things here to highlight.
1. Demonize. Don’t complain about you being demonized when your party and in particular your nominee has done nothing but demonize Hillary Clinton for thirty years. “Criminal”, “killer”, “weak”, “napping”, “worst Secretary of State in our history” and my personal favorite, “she has done nothing!” are words and phrases that your nominee has used. Don’t get your feelings hurt when your support and you are called out for that. If I can be called “unpatriotic”, “a baby killer”, “a socialist”, “biased” and “a Dummycrat” and not get my feelings hurt, you should too. Like my candidate, I don’t whine and just go on with my work. There is a lot to be said for how a supporter sometimes mirrors the candidate.
2. I don’t know what to believe about Donald Trump. There are so many inconstancies that I have no idea whether he is a racist at heart. See he can look into Hillary Clinton’s heart and call her “evil” but I can’t do that to him because I don’t know!
But I do know this. Donald Trump’s campaign has appealed to the worst in our character. His very presence has eliminated the better angels of all of us. The problem is the degree of fanaticism goes from 0 to 60 in a second.
So Trump supporters for the most part have to take a little responsibility for their support. And when they are called on it, act like a grown up.
Melania Trump was in Berwyn, Pennsylvania today at one of her first campaign stops. She referenced how bullying was a major issue in America and how we should be kind to each other and more civil.
Did she see her husband’s statements the last 15 months?
I see a major issue in this election with Poll Watchers. In order to be a Poll Watcher one must have papers certifying that. Trump supporters just can’t show up. Look for the less informed Trump supporters (who by the way were told by Trump that they indeed could show up) to make a fuss on Election Day.
Then they’ll say it was rigged.
Then they’ll blame Hillary.
Businessman and former Army officer Otto Voit released his first ad Wednesday.
The ad emphasizes Voit's military service--a former Army officer and Desert Storm veteran--and his strong ties to Penn State. It goes on to highlight several of his key initiatives, including ending lifetime pensions for politicians and the outrageous fees that the Treasury Department currently pays.
The ad is a part of Voit's statewide digital campaign and will also air in target markets across the state.
