I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

There is A Difference: Trump/Hillary

We've heard his schtick and we've heard her policy issues.

We've heard the conspiracy theories about her and we've heard WHAT HE's SAID on video.

We know what she's done for children in this country we know what he's advocated against protestors at his rallies (again on tape).

We seen her try to discuss issues at debates and we've seen him try to reduce EVERY debate to a playground game of 'playing the dozens".

She has struggled to, and kept, her family together through good and bad times, he has recycled marriages of infidelity 3 times.

We've seen her fight for issues against powerful political parties and politicians and we have seen where he has fought and belittled the little man the contractor, the journalist, the protestor, the home owner.

We've seen her condemned for obtaining some wealth and success and we've seen him lauded for legally filing bankruptcies, avoiding taxes, eminent domain, billion dollar business loses and stiffing small businesses, exporting his manufacturing overseas... and firing people.

We have seen her explain and debate what she stands for and we have seen him ridicule and bully everyone who questions him.

imageWe have seen her endure ridiculous conspiracy theories and cross examinations on her own and we have seen him employ experts and yes men to validate and ensure the success of everything he did.

We've seen someone who has risen from a middle class family through 30 years of public service and someone who was born to wealth and started as a multimillionaire and NO public service.

To say neither is perfect is not saying they are the same, to say one is flawed is not saying they are evil. To advocate doing nothing because you can't decide is shameful and dangerous.
