Dear Editor:  

My Express-Star paper has come out with an editorial with the “decision to support Democrat Hilary Clinton for president.” (spelling theirs) They site that “Trump’s multiple shortcomings make him a poor candidate for president.” (headline.)

We have no “good” candidate for president; after all, both are human with inherent faults. Both have multiple shortcomings. So, perhaps the better choice is to vote on issues. The goal of propaganda (name calling, negative campaigning, etc. ) is to get voters to support his/her cause based on emotions instead of reasonably thinking through issues and making an informed decision. 

Donald Trump said, “Let me be clear----I am pro-life,” adding, “I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me.”

Hillary Clinton says, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” later adding she believed this to be true even on the unborn child’s due date. 

Donald Trump says he will appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court; Hillary said she will appoint justices who support Roe v. Wade. 

(These quotes come from Karen Cross, July 28, 2016, who is the politician director for the National Right to Life Committee.)

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America (July 4, 1776) states the “…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.----That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,----That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles…” (Bolding is from me.)

God help us. You have a choice in November. Two very imperfect candidates…one big decision.
