A Historic Vote

Leave a comment

Bernie Sanders said on Face The Nation Sunday, September 25, 2016, ‘2016 is “not the time for a protest vote.”‘

Far too much is at stake come the November 2016 presidential election. The elected individual will be charged with navigating the United States’ troubled waters on national and on international fronts. An entertainer play-acting for TV coverage will not suffice. The Commander-in-Chief must be familiar with global networks, display strength, be ready to make decisive moves when necessary, keep our nation safe by guiding the military, and offer support to states without dictating.

It is said that all politics is local. My sentiments are that not all cases are subject to local rule–referencing the civil unrest facing America today. Civil unrest has required that President Obama step in and try to quail volatile situations. He has walked the edge this year. Can either candidate do this? It’s a gamble; nevertheless, we have seen both in action. Let that be your guide.
