This is my abreviated 'take' on recent US elections as i replied to blogger TomDorr.
TomDorr I agree Hillary was the wrong choice by the left wing electorate and it wasn't because of those bloody emails. She and Bill just had to many questions hanging over their heads as a couple and i know the lefties will tell us that Bill wasn't running for the presidency she was, but the fact remains they as a family had accumulated a lot of baggage.
The real problem with Hillary was Hillary, she showed very bad judgement in advocating destroying Libya and the brutal murder of Gaddafi. She was vengeful towards both Snowdwen and Assange, both who were risking their lives and freedom to warn the world of an America that was becoming daily more sinister. She was no doubt a hard line warmonger, that certainly is why Russia may have so dead set against her being elected, it was in the own self defense. The continued smoozing with Wall Street and the banksters and topping it off by offering them the ability to carry on if she was elected , if you were to read between the lines. Looking back i find it quite amazing she managed 25% of the electorate and out did Drumpf by 2 million votes.
Having said all that Donald Drumpf is absolutely the most despicable character to every be elected president and that's saying something considering the rogues gallery of racists , crooks and mass murderers that have lived in your White House. Truth is Drumpf received less votes than Hillary and barely 25% of the electorate, hardly a triumpth of democracy and certainly not a mandate to carry out some of the most radical decisions and programs in Americas history.
