One of the main reasons [in my opinion] we have two of the most disliked candidates (among young voters) ever this election is due to young people believing everything they read on social media and also them failing to get educated outside of social media. Trump is bad, there is no doubt about it. The only true option Republicans have right now, however, is to try to make their opponent as disliked as Trump. This is through fallacious stories, fallacious investigations that have repeatedly turned up zero wrongdoing, and their attempts to discredit somebody who has been in the public eye for a quarter of a century any way they can.
If you look at Hillary’s track record she has way more hits than misses. It’s not even close. The hit column in both importance and sheer volume easily trumps the miss column. Yes, she is part of the establishment. That doesn’t mean her side of it is the broken side. Was she on the side that obstructed a POTUS for the last 8 years? No! Was she on the side that openly disrespected a POTUS for 8 years? NO! Remember a time when disrespecting the POTUS got you thrown out of country music? Those days are obviously over when we’re talking about the first African-American POTUS.
So please, outside of emails/private servers (proven no wrong-doing, the previous two Republican Secretaries of State also did the same), Benghazi (proven no wrong doing… also was the fault of Republicans slashing the security budget for embassies, which Clinton warned against), and a slight case of pneumonia (FDR served with, and was elected with, polio and was wheelchair bound. One of the best leaders we have ever had the honor of having) give me some factual, researched claim as to why Hillary is so bad. I am truly curious, because who has been able to fulfill this request yet? I will wait.
Regardless, on to the 3rd party candidates. We’ve been hearing a lot more about Mr. Gary Johnson lately. The man was saying he should have been a part of the debates. What happened? He was given some prime-time television air time. What did he do with it? He proved to us that his foreign policy knowledge, or lack thereof, goes a lot farther than just Aleppo. I get it, under pressure it might be hard to think up a name off the top of your head, but you’d think you’d eventually come up with something. If you cannot handle yourself under the pressure of a casual interview, how do you expect to handle the pressure of being the leader of the United States of America?
Rather than hash out the multiple reasons as to why Jill Stein and Gary Johnson would be awful wastes of your vote, I’ll link an article here so that you can read what the Washington Post had to say about it. Either way, both of these candidates are ill-prepared to lead and are both looking so good because nobody has bothered to take a closer look at who they are and what they really represent. I’ve already spoke in length about Gary Johnson, and his policies here and here, so I won’t rehash that. I’ll just leave you with this. Outside of marijuana and abortion, what kind of politician is Gary Johnson?
