Put that silliness together with the seriousness of what happened in Paris this weekend and I’m hoping that will end this flirtation some voters are having with two men who in no way are qualified to be President of the United States. I have more respect for the voters in Iowa than to ever have thought they would actually vote for Trump or Carson. But now, in the aftermath of Paris, to carry on this flirtation with them is an insult to the rest of the world which will count on the U.S. for leadership as the battle against terrorists ramps up.
These bastards who killed and wounded hundreds in Paris – and have committed similar atrocities around the world, including this country – need to be stopped. I wish I knew how, but that’s why other people who are smarter than I am militarily exist. And let me tell you something, those people are not Donald Trump or Ben Carson, whose meandering answers to all questions is just silly and unresponsive and shows his lack of understanding of what being an elected local official is, let alone the President of the United States.
Trump, who may well be the best negotiator who ever walked this Earth as he claims, doesn’t get that that is not what qualifies anyone to be President. And negotiating with the local officials in Florida to get your multi-gazillion dollar and room mansion accepted as a club does not qualify you either. These terrorists aren’t looking to negotiate. They just want to kill. And Trump saying he’ll blow them to smithereens by first blowing up the oil fields they now control is folly. That is not a strategy, that’s a sound bite.
The “fun” is over. If this attack in Paris doesn’t wake up the voters who say they support these two men then I don’t know what will. Personally, I have confidence in the voters. Now is when Trump and Carson’s numbers will, in my estimation, start to go down. Hyperbole is not an effective weapon against terrorists. They really don’t care about rhetoric, or haven’t we noticed? These people believe – in what I don’t understand -- but they believe in it 1000 percent.
These people do not follow modern day logic, reason or morals. They kill. This isn’t about religion – what religion preaches killing and rape? These people rape. They kill and rape. They kill and rape children. No religion teaches that. These are extremist who want to end Western life as it exists.
The day before the Paris attack every normal thinking person in the world wondered: will it happen where I live The day after, that no longer is the question. The question is when.
Time to get serious about the next commander in chief.
