Americans must get solidly behind Clinton

By Justin Breese

Americans unquestionably cannot allow the scandal-ridden, divisive, Donald Trump to become leader of our beloved Country.

So what are the alternatives? Vote for a third-party candidate? Stay home and don't vote at all? No! These alternatives only help hand Trump the presidency.

Too Trump's delight, some Democrats - for not very persuasive reasons - haven't yet supported Hillary Clinton. Perhaps they are paying attention to the meaningless conservative-hype that viciously attacks Clinton and exaggerates her shortcomings.

Sure, Clinton has some shortcomings, as do many prospective candidates ... Trump for example. The difference is that Clinton admits her shortcoming and corrects them. And, Clinton's sincere love of America and its citizens far outweigh any shortcomings, and Trump's mindless rhetoric.

Americans must get solidly behind Clinton and ensure that she becomes America's President. Otherwise all hope of a vibrant future for America will be lost ... perhaps forever.

[When you can replace each statement of a candidate's name with the opposing candidate and have the statement ring true, it's not very convincing.]
