Hillary's nomination. Her personal and historical achievement distracts from larger issues.
Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination to the Democratic Party, and made herstory as the first female presidential candidate for a major political party. This is a major moment in American history. As a father of four daughters, I am happy that they get to see a woman have an opportunity to be elected to the highest office in the country. And that should be celebrated. As someone who was in San Diego protesting NAFTA, the celebration does not overshadow the dark history that Hillary carved to get to this place. And Hillary's controversial ascendancy has damaged other significant female political and historical figures. The evidence of election fraud in the primaries that propelled Hillary to this moment appears greater than any previous election. And that is all I am saying about that, at this moment.
I do not support Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump. The media's coverage of the primaries inspired me to turn off the mainstream news months ago. It's easy to do, and stay informed in this age of connected technology, and real-time access to other people's experiences. Incase your wondering, I do plan to continue participating in this election, and ongoing political engagements. As for the presidential election, I was advised by my mom's long-time best friend read the party platforms, and had a personal "duh!?!" moment. Go to the source. The platform says much about what could take place over the next four to eight years. More so than the lives of the candidates themselves. Th platforms give a roadmap to hold our elected officials accountable to. So, I have downloaded the platforms of the Democratic, Republican, Green, and Libertarian parties, and encourage you to do so, as well. There will be additional posts form my take on what I learn before the elections.
