USexit!

soul

Much as I dislike Hillary Clinton, and disagree with her on almost everything, I cannot begin to appreciate losing a race for the presidency.

In 1979 I lost a race for the Los Angeles City Council. The pain of losing a political campaign is indescribable. All those people voting against you. All those people judging you. All those voters thinking you are unworthy.

While I have no use for Hillary, her pain in losing this election must be excruciating.

For that, I am sorry.

But she sold her soul to the Devil, and for that she deserved to lose.

  1. The Democratic Party had a winner with Bernie who resonated with disenfranchised people across the country. They chose to cheat him out of the nomination and attempt to force an establishment candidate down our throats in what was clearly an anti-establishment environment.

    Not all election runners up feel pain or judgment or a sense of unworthiness. I ran for the Democratic nomination for town council in my hometown twice, both times against a party machine, and while I didn’t win, I did a lot better than anyone thought I would–well enough to turn the tide against a bad redevelopment project. I never felt the crushing pain you describe because I made a genuine difference, gave a town that usually has uncontested elections a genuine choice, and was proud of the many votes I did receive.

  3. Killary was evil and got her comuppence. You’re very gracious in her defeat but I am a little less concerned about her feelings and more sensitive to those of all the good and decent people she and Bill murdered (who knows the number but it was way more than 50) for their vulgar and ruthless lust for power. May they now rest in peace that karma came to bite that evil witch in the butt. The world has been saved from global catastrophe and a third world war. That worst political whore in US history needs to go to jail for her high crimes and treason, and Trump has got just the right amount of ego and guts to make it happen. He needs to simply stand back and let the FBI do their job. (Unlike Obama who persistently interfered.) But he should delay indictment until after 20th January so Obama has no chance to grant her an (unjust) and unconditional pardon. Trump has numerous character flaws, how well we all know, and I never supported him (as you know), but he’s probably the only one in town with the guts and energy to take on the corrupt status quo. I wish him luck in jailing a few more asses while he’s about it. I am not disappointed he won, in fact, I’m probably secretly glad. The world would have taken a dark turn for the worse if Killary had won. The US now needs to extricate itself from its nefarious, secretive meddling in the affairs of other countries, stop bombing them back to the stone age, stop slaughtering innocent people by the hundreds of millions, stop supporting and funding terrorists, stop fomenting proxy wars for greedy profits, and clean up its own damn backyard. Spend money on reinvigorating jobs for Americans instead of body bags for innocent Muslims who just want to live in peace with their own families – in their own countries. Trump is many things but nobody ever accused him of murder. (His psycopathic, animal slaughtering sons are quite a different matter.) Trump is no Clinton. Many people will not like that he won, but he was the lesser of two evils. Be grateful for small mercies. Let’s hope the American people can learn from their mistakes and pick some better quality candidates at the next election.

  4. hillary, is a compromised person. I am not sorry for her, she did what it took to become the first woman president, and that was the problem. I don’t like trump one bit and I didn’t vote for him. But his campaign was fueled by the trust and respect of his supporters, they stood by him in the face of every possible opposition from the establishment, from both sides the left and the right. Compare that to hillary’s campaign centered around telling the voters that they had no other choice but to vote for her because she was the lesser of the two evils! Let this be a lesson for established political parties not to count on duplicity and to respect voters.

    • She considered herself “the lesser of two evils”? That’s the pot calling the kettle black. One thing Killary is known for is her disingenuous habit of accusing her opponents of all the skulduggery she herself commits!

      • I agree with you. I disliked Hillary for a long time based on what I saw of her during Clinton presidency. But what renewed and strengthened my feeling was her response to some animal rights activists’ questioning her about the issues of animal welfare. I think I saw the clip and her first reaction was a look disbelief on her face. It was almost like she could not believe, even detested, that she was being asked to speak to the issues of welfare. When she finally gained her composure, her response was short and offered nothing. She said something like you should ask trump this question. Really, hillary, and you want my vote?

  5. Yet a truly evil person just won the presidency. One who has a history of ripping hard-working people off, going bankrupt four times, who does not believe in global warming, who does not care about the environment, who molests women, who profusely and profoundly lies, and these are the top of the iceberg. Bernie would have held a prominent post with Hillary. I cannot fathom how you could ever support Trump who will soon have access to nuclear war.

    • There is not that much of a difference between hillary and turmp. hillary would not have done any better for global warming or for animal welfare. In case you haven’t noticed during the last eight years, under 0bama, environmentalists and animal rights activists lost more ground than during bush’s presidency. Furthermore, when it comes to lying, hillary lied just as much if not worse. Her lies were far worse because she was in a position that her lies and her conduct jeopardized the security of this nation.

    • You are living in a world of soundbites and propaganda. If you had studied the real Trump to get past the spin and the extreme exaggeration of his short-comings, you would understand none of those labels. There is nothing evil about Trump, it exists only, in your distorted perception.

    • Trump will lead this country in a way that will bring about healing. Millions & millions of Americans were sick & tired of having an Elitist Liberal agenda shoved down our throats, while suffering the consequences of that one-sided Agenda. It was a battle of Good vs. Evil, and Goodness won. Time to embrace that, & move on.

      • Trump has just declared war on the environment, democracy, everyone in the U.S. who is not extremely wealthy, on racial/ethnic equality. He is in fact “shoving an elitist agenda” down everyone’s throats. He is a liar and a swindler.

      • Ha ha, healing while taking away health care from the most needy and vulnerable. The only things he’ll heal are the pockets of the wealthy. Trump is an opportunistic liar. He’s filled the top positions around him with wealthy white men from the very organizations he promised to fight against in his campaign.
