Our readers’ narrative, published the beginning of most months, is called “Talk Back.” This piece, though, is an exception.

I am confused by those who think Hillary is worthy of becoming our next President. Sixty-eight percent of the public thinks she is dishonest.
The United States is at a crossroads and the looming election is the most important of any that I have known in my lifetime. One candidate offends and one candidate is a corrupt liar. Trump offers a stronger military, national security, negotiated Trade Agreements that favor American workers, secured borders, extreme vetting of immigrants, lower taxes for individuals and business, and higher paying jobs. Clinton offers higher taxes, bigger government, infrastructure jobs paid for by the “1-percenters”, single payer healthcare (read Medicare), and open borders with more illegal aliens and terrorist-embedded refugees. These two platforms are very different and represent a crossroads between being a stronger America or a weaker America.
It’s true that Trump has made some inflammatory remarks that have offended certain people, but he has recognized his mistake, owned up to it and has regretted making those remarks. On the other hand Hillary has been avoiding the press…maybe because she wants to dodge questions about being investigated by the FBI, testifying before Congress about Benghazi, testifying under oath regarding possible perjury over the lies she told about her personal email server where American secrets were hacked. Did we forget that it was Hillary who got the “3am phone call” that let Americans die in Benghazi?
It was Hillary as the Secretary of State who told Syria’s Assad to step aside and now Syria is in a civil war. It was Hillary who offered Russia a reset button that embolden them to invade Crimea and establish air-bases in Iran. Hillary promoted and peddled the Iran Nuclear Agreement and Hillary steered millions of dollars from unfriendly nations to the Clinton Foundation. Has Hillary owned up to her misdeeds or corrected her ways and apologized to the American people? She is being promoted by ABC, CBS, or NBC that she is much more qualified and has more experience than other candidate ever. Experience of lies, deceit, corruption, and failure?
Hillary is a polished politician and a world class liar who has made some very bad decisions, and take a look at her fellow Democrats. Virginia’s Governor Terry Mcauliffe is thumbing his nose at the Supreme Court ruling and will be allowing convicted felons the right to vote. The Democratic National Convention (DNC) leaders were shown to be the real bigots, anti-Semites, and anti-gay crusaders when Wikipedia released hacked DNC emails that revealed their racist conspiracy to keep Bernie Sanders away from the nomination. The DNC had one American flag on stage for the convention. Crime rates are the highest in cities led by Democratic mayors. And Hillary’s campaign slogan is “I’m with her”, doesn’t that sound sexist and discriminatory? The liberal media is digging as hard as they can to find anything on Trump that will hang him all the while ignoring Hillary’s lifetime of lies, deceit, and corruption.
OK, so Donald has made some off-colored remarks and even offended a gold star mother. But has the media even mentioned that Hillary lied to four gold star mothers about the Benghazi attack? She even claimed that they are the liars. Donald would have been hung. She has told big lies and has made some really bad decisions that allowed Americans to die and American secrets to be leaked. Hillary will welcome terrorist-embedded Syrian refugees and criminal illegal aliens with our tax dollars. They will get jobs and free housing, education, and healthcare while American veterans die in line waiting for healthcare. I am confused as to why any American could possibly think that Hillary would be a good President. Actions are much louder than words.
