As a Union member, I have voted both ways in the past,....based on who it was and what they had to say. My wife's grandfather, (Pete Peterson) was captured along with McCain. hearing the things that Trump has said about McCain and the military just don't sit well with me. Hillary being a career liar, (politician) doesn't sit good with me either.

A surprising article from the New Yorker Magazine. This magazine has always been
a left wing apologizer so this article is even more amazing. Don’t pass it up.

The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote extensively
about Obama even before he was nominated.

"Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald Trump?"

By Roy Kaplan

The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and
media establishment.

Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to
annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the
Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only." They knew there wasn't a
dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few
cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.

Ben Carson was not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton machine would
pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz (justifiably so) would
have been tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The
Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails
at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides -
lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few
things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an [islamo-]Marxist in
2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)

Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans
control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen
them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same
voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why?

Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last
six years of Republican failures.

No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems
or reps] would have slashed federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut
burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless
federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban
Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the
Department of Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less
of a risk-taker.) No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's
major problems will be solved by Rodham as she is simply the third verse of
Obama’s waning swan song.

Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:

· Anyone named Bush

· Anyone named Clinton

· Anyone who's held political office

· Political correctness

· Illegal immigration

· Massive unemployment

· Theft of Social Security

· Our out of control federal spending

· Our National Debt that exceeds our GDP (Can you say Greece?)

· Phony "official" unemployment and inflation figures

· Welfare waste and fraud

· Money being spent on Illegal immigrants

· People faking disabilities to go on the dole

· Russia and China laughing at us

· Iran taking us to the cleaners

· VA waiting lists

· TSA airport groping

· ObamaCare

· The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes

· Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine

· Michelle Obama's vacations

· Michelle Obama's food police

· Barack Obama's golf

· Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures

· Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America

· Valerie Jarrett

· " Holiday trees"

· Hollywood hypocrites

· Liars in the media

· Cop killers while Black Lives Matter

· Gun confiscation threats

· Spoiled rotten athletes who have no idea how good they have it

· Stagnant wages

· Boys in girls' bathrooms

· Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place the Civil War in the
correct century... and that's just the short list.

Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and
that few Republicans have the courage to address these issues. They know that
Trump is their way of saying, "Screw you, Hillary Rodham and all the Do Nothing
Republicans!" The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump
supporters, the more supporters he gains. (The only pundits who seem to
understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and
Republican John LeBoutillier.)

But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a new
engine installed by experts - and Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely
manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned. Trump is also not a
mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage. He
won't hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire
someone who lives and breathes cars.

"How dare they revolt!" the "elites" are bellowing. Well, the citizens are
daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. "But Trump will hand
the election to Clinton !" That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to
believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved "Maverick" McCain down GOP
throats in 2008 - knowing he would lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and
Rodham wins, she would be nothing more than a caretaker, not working to restore
America 's greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively
in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps
survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can survive both - and there is
little evidence that Hillary Rodham understands that. The United States cannot
forever continue on the path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its
debt.

Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is
that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and
clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky
and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at
war with radical Islamists; and we cannot continue trying to spend our way out
of debt.

Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan. But
unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are
irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands.
One jihadist poisoning a city's water supply could kill tens of thousands. One
electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill
tens of millions. Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don't
care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of
property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs
running the Council on American-Islamic Relations. While Attorney General
Loretta Lynch's greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most
Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a
crazed [Islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives
and who is fool enough to think that 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.

The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because
they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will upset their
taxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to veto legislation that
spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too
much.

You can be certain that if Hillary wins in November 2016 … [her] cabinet
positions will be filled with the same people we've seen before. The washed-up
has-beens of the Clinton and Obama administrations will be back in charge. The
hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots. And American will
continue her continuing decline as other great democracies in history.

If the establishment wins, America loses.
