Final Debate

Supreme Court: Hillary is our only choice for keeping LGBT rights. She is our only chance to reign in gun violence and get some control. She is also the only chance women have to a right to choose what to do with their own bodies.

Immigration: She is our only chance for a taco truck on every corner. (This is a joke but I miss living in a state that has Mexicans who make really great food.) Honestly she is our chance to have comprehensive immigration reform and not mass hysteria and deportations.

Economy: She is a chance for the middle class to strive; he wants the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer and the middle class to be left out all together. One thing I find interesting is that NAFTA was signed on December 17, 1992 by George HW Bush. It happened to go into effect under Clinton, after a bipartisan Senate had ratified it. 

Fitness to Be President: She is fit, he is horrifyingly unfit. He cannot even take responsibility and constantly says “But she did it first.” He is childish. When he can’t defend himself he comes up with something totally off topic. He is a dark and devisive vision of America. The Clinton Foundation is a true charitable organization; the Trump Foundation has no proof of any charitable contributions.

Foreign Hot Spots: She would make me feel safe, whereas he scares the daylights out of me. She is intelligent, but he is an idiot. He obviously doesn’t understand Aleppo; she at least understands what’s going on there.

National Debt: You can’t run a country like a business, especially a bankrupt Trump business. She has a plan, he has rhetoric.

A few more observations: he didn’t answer a single question, she answered a few, maybe even most. Chris Wallace was not as tough as he should have been about getting the answers to his questions. Clinton had on a very nice outfit and the cream color looked good on her. The last two outfits were not especially flattering. I think in the end, this debate went to Hillary Clinton like the other two debates. She won best on her speech about women; he did the worse when asked if he will accept the results of the election.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    Did you notice the colour choices she made for the debates were Red, White and Blue. Not in that order, but just noticed, I am sure there was something subliminal in her choice. Can not wait for this nightmare to be over. Go Hillary

      I did notice that and apparently it was on purpose. Also the white was because of the women’s suffrage movement. The suffragettes often would wear white, which is why she’s worn it at important parts of the campaign.
