A Case Against Donald Trump

Updated on May 31, 2016

Donald Trump IS NOT WORTH the sacrifice of a nation!

This is not part of the #NEVERTRUMP movement or any group with primary objective to prevent Mr. Trump from becoming president. It is a plea to consider what the nation will be like and how the world will see the United States under a Trump’s administration. If comments made by Heads of State across the world are any indication, the United States might become an isolated country and its citizens no longer welcome.

Which nominee will be the next president of the United States is anyone's guess. Granted the Republicans want Donald Trump and the Democrats are cheering for Hillary Clinton but what makes this presidential election cycle so different, so unique is that for the first time in a very long time the country is not only divided among party lines but the electorate are also widely divided in their understanding of what's good for the country and which candidate is best to carry it out; also to complicate matter is the politics Think Tank's reluctance to fully embrace either candidate to occupy the Oval Office in January 2017.

Truth be told, it's somewhat unsettling to visualize the country, the world even to have to deal with a Trump's administration. It was entertaining to watch Donald Trump knock all his rivals out of the race but it is no longer funny to contemplate the possibility he might become the next President of the United States. What's most demoralizing is the fact that some Republican voters and most GOP Leaders who have repeatedly claimed to love the country have now aligned behind a candidate they all have unanimously declared publicly to be incompetent and unfit to become president. Today, those same individuals offer up a list of "illogical rationale" to support Donald Trump; the most frequently cited is that Mr. Trump is better than Hillary Clinton.

Seriously? Seriously!

Unless one is completely delusional, there is absolutely no area of comparison between Donald and Hillary; to hate, do dislike, to resent and even to find her despicable in your eyes does not in any way affect her qualifications. Mrs. Clinton is probably the only presidential candidate in modern time with such a long list of credentials; she is the most qualified candidate who has vied for the Oval Office in a long time.

On the international stage, she is recognized across the world for her work as Secretary of State; she's met with virtually most Heads of State; on the national stage, Mrs. Clinton is no stranger to policies which have impacted various sectors of the country.

But most importantly, Mrs. Clinton is level headed. Anyone who claims to love the country, anyone who claims to be patriotic cannot justify flipping the country [like a piece of real estate (pun intended)] by handing it to a very unsettling individual.

This is NOT a joke! Any GOP leader with a slight grain of love and patriotism for the country cannot possibly come up with any justification to help Donald Trump win in the general elections.

I am highly concerned because the actions of the Republicans will not affect just the Republicans; a Donald Trump's administration will affect the Democrats, the Independents, and everyone in between; this is the last thing the world would want to deal with.

Patriotism is not just a word to throw around; it's not a cover to hide under. Patriotism requires making incredibly difficult choices, taking unconventional positions for the sake of the country, for the sake of future generations, for the sake of the world.

The country is at a crossroad where party affiliation must not be factored in. You don't need to be a Democrat; you don't have to like Hillary but for the sake of your children and your children's children, for the sake of the country, I urge you NOT to err on the side of the unknown. There are damages, tragedies, devastations one can never recover from; the Donald Trump's prospect as the next president of the United States is one such instance.

To run the country is not an act; it cannot be scripted. It was fun to watch him during the primaries; it was entertaining, outrageous, hilarious and ridiculous at times. It is not just about the United States; it is not just about you; it is about the future. No logical individual can justify handing the fate of the nation, of the world even in the hands of Donald Trump.

Donald Trump IS NOT WORTH the sacrifice of a nation!

      Credentials are not accomplishments nor are they even qualifications for the presidency. Hillary has failed at being a senator, and the sec of state. She failed in 2008 to even get the democratic nomination, and senator Obama had even less qualifications than her.

      He cooked his own goose when he continued to degrade the people we put in office. If he says those in charge are losers, that means we who voted for them are losers, too.

      Only Trump, the savior, can save us from ourselves. Yeah, that's delusional.

      He's in it for himself, and the ones who helped him get out of trouble, imo.

      Adelson is on his team now. That should tell you someting, speaking of patriotism. That guy regretted serving in our military, wished it was another country's!

      Go away Dumpy. Back to your gold-plated toilet seats. Crooked as they come Hillary has NOTHING on you. Read David K Johnson, 21 questions for Trump. He's written about him for 27 yrs.

      Donald is far from being an Honest Abe.

      Trump was always a "JOKE Candidate" but we as Democrats still must "GET OUT the Vote" ~ Many "Watch-Dogs" have come to the OBVIOUS Conclusion that Up to 85% of what he says is UNTRUE ~ NOT Good and of course EXPECTED by now ~ Moreover, here are some Hardcore FACTs even most Republicans are UNAWARE of :

      ** Carl Icahn's Company was recently DOWNGRADED to "JUNK Status" on May 17, 2016 ~ Carl Icahn of course is the "DONALD's" Main Point Negotiator for "BIG Winning DEALz for AMERICA" ~ He ran his OWN Company into the DIRT just one step away from BANKRUPTCY, just imagine what he would do for AMERICA?

      ** The "DONALD" promises to "DEFAULT" on the United States DEBT ~ A Reckless & Illegal ACT which would make any TERRORIST attack on this country to date seem like Childs-Play

      ** The "DONALD" has plans to LOWER Wages for ALL Americans ~ Yup, this imbecile actually said American Worker's WAGES are too HIGH

      ** Trump has plans to "PROLIFERATE" or "INCREASE" the number of Nuclear Warheadz GLOBALLY, ARMING More Foreign Nations

      The LIST of RECKLESS Actions suggested by this Moron is way to Lengthy to articulate here ~ But these are just a few reasons WHY They will NEVER hand over the KEYs to OUR White HOuse to this Mentally Delusional Individual ~
