Should I fear for the United States or fear for the world? Hilary Rodam Clinton is probably likely to become the next President of the world’s most powerful nation. She brings with her all the ugly baggage of a career politician. Such is the stuff that the voters despise, but the voters of the United States have to choose between the fire and the frying pan, an unsavoury unhealthy choice.
There always seems to be corruption with these career politicians. They acquire great wealth, somehow, and use their influence for patronage, usually to the advantage of their offspring. Career politicians see subtly choices and make decisions which ordinary people cannot follow; perhaps we are too stupid, or more likely too principled. Mr Trump calls Mrs Clinton “crooked” which is a pots and kettles insult. The rest of the world looks on fearful of the future.
I have always argued that people get the politicians they deserve, but in the case of the United States the rest of the world will get a leader that it does not deserve.
