I want to summarize this crazy election year. Hillary Clinton is a great person who should be president. Donald Trump is one of the best marketing experts in global history; the guy is a genius.
There is a difference between being a bride and a wife. A bride is a woman who does an outstanding job of putting on a wedding or getting someone/everyone to marry her. A bride looks good in a fancy dress and is stunningly graceful on her wedding day. A wife is a lady built to be part of a healthy union until death does them part. Wife material is built for the long haul rather than one day.
Some of the best brides don’t stay married long; the relationship was based on the big day only. She just wanted to be princess for the weekend. Some of the best marriages involved good husbands and wives who went to the courthouse.
It’s not about Clinton and Trump; it’s about us. Bride Trump sold himself to the Republican base better than all of those people on the primary stage. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and maybe Marco Rubio would have been good presidents/”wives” but they couldn’t get to the chapel pass Trump.
Democrat rock stars (the Obamas, Bill Clinton, Al Gore) shouldn’t have to beg and cajole Black people to the polls. Oh, if Blacks alone would vote in the South and Midwest, this election would be over. Hell, Al Gore never should have had a hard time with George Bush after the wonderful state of the union created by Bill Clinton.
If Black America doesn’t think it’s important to protect Obama’s legacy by electing a brilliant proven leader like Hillary Clinton, we deserve to go back to the future with Mr. Trump and those who want their country stolen from the Indians back.
Yesterday, I learned the saying “you can’t teach what you don’t know…you can’t lead where you won’t go.” Hearing the childhood story of Hillary Clinton’s mom broke my heart; they left her alone in an apartment for weeks. Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney use to say soldiers don’t get medals..they get scars.
Hillary can teach what she knows because she has scars…she knows the plight of working people much better than Mr. Trump. We shouldn’t hate on Trump for never being poor but he is ill-suited to govern. House Speaker Tom Foley use to say “any jackass can kick down a barn but it takes a carpenter to build one.”
After this election is over, both parties will consider their futures. The two billion dollars spent being ugly could have done some much good. The GOP knows they must court minorities while pulling back from the far right. The Democrats know the Bernie Sanders socialist segment is growing. At the end of the day, Black should conduct our lives in a manner that doesn’t directly involve who the local, state and federal leaders are because they are busy being brides rather than wives.
