With the FBI reopening the Hillary Clinton email investigation only ten days before the election and 13 million votes already being cast, or votes from six percent of the eligible voting population already being cast, it’s time to end early voting unless it is by necessity or an extreme condition.

The Clinton campaign has been holding rallies strategically located near polling places and influencing attendees to vote after the rally, actually giving them directions to the polling places where they can vote early. On polling day that type of behavior is at the very least partly illegal. Trump is correct. The election is being rigged.

If this isn’t the clearest reason to end early voting, I don’t know what is.

I feel quite certain that the Hillary Clinton campaign, with the Wikileaks revelations of how Bernie Sanders was treated by the DNC, with the clearly paid-off media via campaign advertising dollars, and with the recent protestations of women suddenly coming out of the woodwork all at the same time bemoaning Donald Trump, is probably the dirtiest campaign in my lifetime.

What do you think?

It’s amazing what some in the country will do to maintain the status quo.

If you boil all of the campaign issues down, Hillary is really just a hater of men. She has a position at least partially against everything and anything involving masculinity and supports unequivocally anything involving femininity and who can blame her after seeing what former President Bill Clinton did to her publicly. If you examine almost each and every issue there is some element of gender politics to it.

Unfortunately for her and unfortunately for the country, that’s not what the country needs.

To a certain extent I believe much of the discussion coming from the democrats on the subject of gun control has more to do with taxing particular gun sales rather than curtailing them. Gun sales at gun shows and over the internet already require a background check unless between two private parties who meet up and personally sell a gun to one another in the same state and that is not even legal in some states. Criminals won’t abide by those laws anyway. They never do.

But imagine if you purchased a shotgun for your son or daughter who was coming of hunting age and you had to pay another $100.00 or more to facilitate the transaction? That would generate a lot of tax revenue, wouldn’t it?

There already is an excise tax on fully manufactured guns which gun makers have to pay to the tune of something like $100.00 per gun, so gun sales are a money maker for the government. Perhaps now that they have a taste of that kind of revenue, on a $400 gun that’s a tax of 25 percent, they want more. And that doesn’t even include the sales tax or the cost of the background check that the seller runs on you.

There is of course the fact that many democrats, those in urban areas who vote democrat, shoot each other. Alot. So guns diminish the numbers of democrats. But I’ve stated that before. And that sounds like a problem with democrats and not guns.

Clearly Trump won the last and final presidential debate.

 

 

First of all when we consider the entire election process in America we must understand that the election is not just the actual practice of voting and tabulating the votes.

There are other processes involved as well.

For example, the media have been fawning over The Clintons for decades. I could give reasons for that phenomenon but there is nothing like scandal to get the media tongue wagging in this age of tabloid journalism and of course The Clintons have been at the center of many major scandals.

The media have been catering to the Clintons with such media properties as “Madame Secretary” and the first five minutes favoring Hillary at the beginning of every evening news broadcast on a major network for at least since this election season began. Years before Clinton decided to run for president she has been receiving favorable media attention, not to say that she shouldn’t be receiving favorable media attention, she is after all a former First Lady.

There is also the treatment of Trump by The GOP as well and he has been treated like an outcast from the very beginning, required to publicly take special oaths and swear to boyscout style impromptu allegiances. Clearly it is not just The Democratic Party which has institutionalized some of its candidates.

So, when Donald Trump states the election is rigged, perhaps there is no question about the actual tabulation of votes, though many believe there are questionable practices there as well, at the very least there is significantly favorable treatment of one candidate, Hillary Clinton, by the media over the other, Donald Trump during the campaign season when there are significant questions about the integrity of the candidate that is receiving all of the favorable attention.

So, yes the election IS rigged.

Because the election isn’t just about the tabulation of votes, it is the entire process I’ve described, media fairness and more and from my perspective the entire process has treated Donal Trump unfairly. Yes, the election is rigged because the entire process has been rigged.

I not so sure it is the first time, though.
