THOMAS SOWELL: GRIM CHOICES……….

I am very disgusted/revolted with the choices that we have this year, especially when we had a chance to nominate, then elect, a real constitutional (Reaganite) conservative, Ted Cruz. 

Trump is a disaster.

Trump will visit the site of his planned 300 million pound (US$542 million; 432 million euro) golf development, where he wants to create the "best golf course in the world" on the 800-acre site at the nearby Menie Estate.

The very fact that we are left with such desperate options is not only a rebuke to the professional politicians, but also a painful revelation about the voting public.

Immediately after electing a president with virtually no track record, on the basis of rhetoric and symbolism, and seeing disaster after disaster during his administration, many are now prepared to do the same thing all over again.

More than two centuries ago, Thomas Jefferson said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” If so, can people who cannot be bothered to look up from their electronic devices expect to remain a free people?

Grim Choices

We must frankly face the fact that the front runners in both political parties represent a new low, at a time of domestic polarization and unprecedented nuclear dangers internationally. This year’s general election will offer a choice between a thoroughly corrupt liar and an utterly irresponsible egomaniac.

The Republican establishment, whose serial betrayals of their supporters created the setting for a Donald Trump to arise, must now decide how best to deal with the apparent inevitability of his candidacy.

  1. I agree the choices are bad.

    But the biggest issue we face is Islam. Look to Western Europe to see what awaits those willing to ignore the Islamic cult.

    I personally believe Trump’s appeal stems from directly addressing the Islam issue. Virtually every other politician ignores or whitewashes Islam.

    The long term (1,400 year Islam) problem is all too easy to miss. Ask the once peaceful Hindu/Buddhist people of Afghanistan and Pakistan if you can find any.

    That’s what awaits all who ignore the clearly obvious reality of Islam’s cult.

    1. The problem is, how do we trust a guy that comes down on all sides of any single issue, will do as he says. People are projecting onto him all of their own hopes/desires, thinking he’s speaking for them, when in fact as his history shows, he is a self aggrandizer, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Who knows, he might do something good, but fact remains, only he really knows, the rest (his followers) are only hoping. I simply do not trust the guy.

  2. Lying Ted….. No.
    Trump was the first to name the enemy, which is politically correct, which feeds islam. If they wanted to win they only had to speak out. Instead, they were another one like the other one. Hillary can win, and then 680,000 muslims are going to pour in to YOUR city, and if you speak out YOU could be arrested. I would rather vote for Hitler than the obolite, Hillary.

    Instead, knowing every American wants to keep their life, decline the liberal experiment that made detroit, and the no go zone Dearborne MI, will vote for the only guy calling it a spade. So which candidate will keep them out?
    See the gays suing the baker? Be nice to have Trump get involved and go after the liberals doing that one. The dykes declined to ask muslim bakers for fear of harm.
    I am sick of open season on Christians…..

    1. All you have is lib-Trump’s word, which you cand never pin down, he keeps changing it to suit whatever crowd he’s speaking to. Untrustworthy.He’s tacking left for the Sanders crowd…bad.
