Hillary Clinton Lost To Donald Trump: Here’s Why

If conservatives believed in the marketplace of ideas, wouldn't they want everyone to vote?

If you think Trump was elected because of racism, bigotry, prejudice, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc., you’re living in an alternate reality. While some of these things certainly exist, it’s on a smaller scale than Democrats believe, and it wasn’t enough to swing the election. The real reason Donald Trump won is because Hillary Clinton lost.

Most everyone can agree that Donald Trump was not the ideal Republican candidate. The man is deeply flawed. But, so is Hillary Clinton. But, so are we. No one is good, not one. Whether Clinton or Trump is the better person is debatable, but in the end, what matters, is that Hillary Clinton, as a candidate, is the more deeply flawed.

How? Let me list some of the reasons:

  • Trump wants to build a wall. Whether practical or not, the message is that he will work to keep illegal immigrants out, and deport the illegal immigrants that are here. Democrat’s refusal to distinguish between legal and illegal hurt them.
  • Trump wants to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the country. He wants to make sure they’re properly vetted. When 99% of terrorist attacks are caused by Muslims, this is common sense; Ismlorealism if you will. When a candidate refuses to acknowledge terror attacks for what they are, it shows a lack of concern for American lives and security.
  • Trumps wants to make American great again. Once upon a time, American was looked up to in the world. Now we’re frowned upon. It’s time to reverse that. Many people want a President that likes this country, instead of one who appears to not like it. They want a President to look out for the citizens of this country, after all, the position is President of the United States, not President of the United Nations.

These issues were a big deal, but should not have been. The insistence of Democrats that they have to have it all or have it all, probably helped drive voter turn-out against Hillary. Here are more reasons people didn’t vote for Hillary:

This isn’t a discussion of right or wrong. It’s simply a list of reasons Hillary lost to Donald Trump. There are more. I could go on. This is enough for now.

In Good Conscience, Christian, Vote Republican

​"I can’t, in good conscience, vote for either candidate." As a Christian, and an American, I have a problem with this idea, because while neither candidate is desirable, one IS better than the other. That’s not to say, you shouldn’t vote for a third party candidate because that’s the party you identify with, and you truly like that candidate, but if you’re voting for what’s in the best interest of the U.S., it’s not the way to go. Personally, I identify closest with the Constitution Party, but lets face it, they probably won’t garner enough votes to even show up in the final results.

Because the candidate I want to win, doesn’t stand a chance, my next question is what’s best for the country. The answer to that is simple, #NoMoreDemocrats. So I vote for the candidate that has the best chance of beating the Democrat, and in just about every case, that’s a Republican. The bottom line is no matter how bad the character of a candidate is, it’s the policies that that candidate will bring.

The winner of the election is going to be a Republican or Democrat. No other candidate stands a chance. It will be one of the two. So, the realistic choices for President, from a Christian standpoint, are the Democrat whose policies suck, or the Republican whose policies suck a lot less. If you look at it that way, the choice should be easy. So, in good conscience, I have to vote for the Republican.

Democrat Double Standards: Comey and Weiner

I’ve always believed to be a Democrat, is to be devoted to double standards. It showed itself in two separate articles today.

The first, FBI Obtains Warrant for Newly Discovered Emails in Clinton Probe — as Reid Accuses Comey of Hatch Act Violation – NBC News, discusses Harry Reid’s comments in which he “scolded Comey for potentially breaking the law.” My question here is, where is the concern over whether Hillary broke the law? For the sake of argument, I’ll say that there currently isn’t any proof that she broke the law, but there is a mountain of evidence: evidence stated by Comey himself during the press conference when he said that no prosecutor in his right mind would go after Hillary, Wikileaks Podesta emails, and Project Veritas Action videos as a start. Where is the concern there? There isn’t any.

The second, A Scandal Too Far? Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton, and a Test of Loyalty – NYTimes.com, discusses the relationship between Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Huma Abedin, and Anthony Weiner. What caught my attention was this statment:

The Clintons have never publicly criticized Mr. Weiner.

Yet they’re all over Trump. What this tells me is that the Clintons really don’t care about women or sexual misconduct; they only care about power. They only care about Trump’s supposed indiscretions because he’s in their way of returning to the White House.

No More Democrats

No More Democrats

Note: I now have a Facebook page for No More Democrats.

First, let me be clear. I am neither Republican nor Democrat. I have issues with both parties. If there’s a party I find myself mostly closely aligned with, it’s the Constitution Party, but the reality is that no one from that party stands a chance of being elected, so I need to vote smartly. I need to vote against Democrats.

I don’t understand why people vote for Democrats, especially Christians. It’s a party built around non-Christian principles, and at times has been specifically anti-Christian. It bills itself as the party of compassion, but in reality, many of it’s policies hurt people and families. And they don’t care!

So here are just a few reasons why people should vote against Democrats at every level of government:

  1. Democrats Boo God at Convention
  2. Supporter (Democrat) Omits ‘Under God’ From Pledge While Introducing Hillary Clinton
  3. Democrat sees air conditioners as a threat equal to ISIS
  4. Democrats defend Planned Parenthood despite illegally profiting from the selling of aborted baby parts
  5. DNC Wikileaks hack reveals CNN in bed with Democrats.
  6. Pro-gun Democrats silenced as party veers left on Second Amendment
  7. Democrat Congressional Candidate Thinks 9/11 Was ‘One of the Greatest Events in Human History
  8. Liberal EPA admits breaking the law
  9. Road to urban despair paved by Democrats
  10. Democrats and Satanists agree that abortion is good
  11. The Illegal Immigration Problem Is A Democrat Problem « Reflection On Plumb

Let’s see #NoMoreDemocrats in office.

Corruption Is Why Trump Needs To Jail Clinton

Apparently, Trump’s comment about Hillary being put in jail if he becomes President ruffled a few feathers. I, for one, cheered. Why? Let me put this into a little context.

We’re not talking about jailing the opposition like Hitler or Stalin, or even Putin from some of the stories I’ve heard. We’re talking about the jailing of criminals, or in this case a specific criminal. I know, she hasn’t been convicted of anything, so it’s wrong to call her a criminal. And as a Christian, I’m not taking that lightly, but I also believe there’s nothing wrong with a label that fits, because let’s face it, some labels that fit.

The thing is, Trump shouldn’t have had to bring it up. If the FBI would have done their job, and pursued charges, would she still be the Democratic nominee? Well, probably, because the DNC had worked to rig the system in her favor. Quite frankly, she should probably be in jail now.

But Hillary’s just part of the problem. The fact is, charges weren’t pursued. Why? Her husband Bill, pays a short notice visit to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and a short time later… she’s off the hook. Because, according to a grinning Hillary Clinton, it was “a mistake.” 30,000 deleted emails were a mistake? Petty Officer 1st Class Kristian Saucier deleted one photo and is currently facing a possible 30 years in prison. How much do you want to bet, the “mistake” explanation won’t work for Saucier. That’s the Clinton Privilege.

While I hate conspiracy theories, this is a situation, where again, the label appears to fit the circumstances. There are multiple people involved, or at least it has the appearance of multiple people and they’re all Democrats, or hold Democrat sympathies (or the appearance of Democrat sympathies):

  • Hillary Clinton (Democrat Party Candidate): who appears to have broken the law
  • Bill Clinton (Former President): who appears to have influenced Loretta Lynch in a “unplanned” meeting
  • Loretta Lynch (Attorney General): who appears to have been influenced by Bill Clinton (was it Bill’s way with women?)
  • James Comey (FBI Director): who appears to have been influenced by Attorney General Loretta Lynch to not recommend charges, because, you know, she didn’t intentionally break the law.
  • The guy who set up the server: took the Fifth so as not to incriminate himself.

It’s got corruption written all over it. And people wonder why no one trusts the political class, er, government. Allowing Hillary to become President won’t fix this. She’s part of the problem! Trump’s right that a special prosecutor needs to be appointed to tackle this problem.
