Opinion by Jennifer Bassett:
As we draw near to an election that will impact our nation for decades, we really need to focus on what really matters. The liberals out there keep saying the emails don’t matter and their contents don’t matter. Well it all matters. The emails, contents some of which were classified, some of which were marked highly classified, were illegally sent on unprotected servers. That put our nation and our lives at risk. It has been discovered that more than five other countries hacked in to the servers. But what matters most is the fact that Hillary knew what she was doing was illegal and attempted to hide it. Then she also lied under oath about turning over all her emails. This is a proven fact. The FBI has said there are numerous new emails sent from her personally in the Weiner/Aberdin emails. Why would anyone want someone leading our nation who under oath lied and knowingly put us at risk.
Then there is her Clinton Foundation…boy is it ever correctly named….the Clinton’s profit greatly from it. Hillary lies again each time she claims that over 50% goes to charity works….nope according to tax return documents only 6% goes to charity. The largest expenditures go for travel and fund raising events….and payroll. Then there’s the illegal pay for play plans where if you’re like Morocco and give 12 million dollars you get preferred treatments. Even their ‘blame everything happening on Russia’ friend after donating millions got 20% of our uranium stockpile.
Even her new best friend Obama this week while supposedly campaigning for Hillary, couldn’t talk about her much…he mentioned himself 207 times. He couldn’t promote her either. The last eight years of his policies haven’t done America any good. After eight years if his agenda most Americans are still barely making by or are worse off. And even more of us will be worse off this coming year trying to pay for useless health insurance. Why would we want more of that. Obama’s policies and agendas are what most of hers are based on.
Now I want to talk about our security. She said at the last debate that she wants to ” keep an eye ” on ISIS…..hmmmm….I think we need to do more than watch them. We’ve been watching them….watching them terrorize the world and bring death and destruction to many countries. Hillary wants to let them free flow into our country.
She also wants to open our borders up which will take our economy down even further. There are not enough jobs for the people we have now . Our welfare/Medicaid system is strained now giving benefits to the numerous illegals already here.
Our factories and jobs are leaving our country at an alarming rate because of bad trade deals and practices. We import more goods than other countries buy from us which needs to stop. Foreign countries economies are growing at a record pace while ours has basically fallen apart. When was the last time you could find more made in America products in stores than imported goods? Even a lot of our food is imported while the American farmers near extinction. We have been sold out to foreign governments. Just this year a law was enacted that food suppliers no longer have to label country of origin on our food. This to me holds our health in jeopardy. Foreign countries do not have follow the same guidelines as far as safe handling and labeling of food that our FDA has set to protect our food supply. One example being the shrimp that is imported are grown in polluted water and after harvesting are injected with fillers to make them appear larger. Who know what’s in the fillers ….they don’t have to disclose it in the labeling because the food is handled according to their countries standards. We need to return back to American grown foods. America needs to require any food allowed to be imported be grown and processed according to our health standards.
Now let me discuss the Supreme Court judges who the newly elected president will be nominating. The new president will have in their hands the task of naming numerous appointees to the Supreme Court. That alone will shape our nation for years to come even after the new president’s term/terms end. We need fair judges that will uphold our constitutional rights instead of taking them away or limiting them. Late term abortion is only a form of murder in my opinion. If a woman who is pregnant is killed the person responsible is charged with two homicide. So does it make sense to legalize killing a viable baby? It seems more and more my rights as a Christian are being taken away by the courts who are trying to limit my religious beliefs and how I choose to express them just because it offends someone. Well it offends me not to be able to have my freedom of religion. These are just some of the issues to be decided on soon, as is our right to own and bear firearms.
So when you go to vote…I feel we should consider these facts and vote Donald Trump because he wants to protect our security, our children, our economy and our constitution. He is the only logical choice to make our country strong and great once again.
