Downright Inspiring.
- POSTED ON: Oct 13, 2016


The author of the article below states exactly what I was thinking all throughout the recent 2nd Presidential debate.  I, also,  found Hillary's conduct to be inspiring.

Forget This “Hillary Is Unlikable” Stuff.
Hillary Is Downright Inspiring.

                     By L.V. Anderson, Oct 12, 2016 in Slate

Expectations for this election have become so warped that the primary conclusions media commentators took away from the second debate were that it had been an ugly, uninspiring affair and that Trump didn’t lose.

Let’s set aside the absurdity that a man who brought up his own tax scandal unbidden, who threatened to jail his opponent, who betrayed his absolute ignorance of the nuances of the war in Syria, and whose best zinger amounted to recalling that Abraham Lincoln’s nickname was “Honest Abe” somehow fought to a draw with his opponent. Trump was as ugly and uninspiring as usual.

But here’s what people haven’t been saying in the days since the debate:
Hillary was inspiring as all get out.

Yes, I’m familiar with all the arguments against Hillary as inspirer-in-chief. She’s part of the establishment. She’s laden with potential conflicts of interest. Her judgment during the whole email thing was poor. She seems, to many observers, wooden and robotic. Fine.

The fact remains that Hillary stood onstage and calmly and persuasively made the case for her candidacy while her looming, lurching, lunatic opponent attempted to humiliate her in front of the entire world. If Hillary can do that, then the rest of us can do whatever we put our minds to.

Put yourself in Hillary’s shoes for a moment. You’re 68 years old. You have spent decades—decades—in the public eye, absorbing criticism from every possible angle.

Your opponent is an impulsive, amoral ignoramus with a long history of humiliating women. He has made it his strategy during this debate to dredge up what are probably the darkest moments of your personal life—your husband’s affairs and alleged sexual assaults—as evidence of your failures as a wife and as a woman. He has brought three of these women to sit in the front row during the debate in an attempt to throw you off guard and cow you into submission. He literally tells you to your face that he will imprison you if he wins the election.

What would you do?
If I were Hillary, I would blubber incomprehensibly through my rage-tears for the duration of the debate, if I lasted onstage that long.

What did Hillary do?
She stood tall and looked comfortable. She listened carefully ...

Enough is Enough

“It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity.

If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.

If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity.”

The above is a recent quote by Conservative Political Commentator, Republican leader, and media personality, Glen Beck.  It also expresses my own personal feelings about Donald Trump and the 2016 election.

Most Democrats are, of course, anti-Trump and a great many of them are pro-Hillary.  However, at this point, at least one-quarter of the top elected Republicans will not endorse Trump for president, and more of them appear to be leaving his camp every day.

I’ve finally reached my Breaking Point.  Enough is Enough.   Although DietHobby is not intended to be a political platform, I find today that achieving success with my personal weight-loss maintenance requires me to express my thoughts on this subject.

Here is my bottom line.  I do not see how any woman, or especially any woman (or man) who is a Christian believer, could ever cast a vote for such an immoral, indecent, undignified man.   I am saddened and embarrassed to have Republican friends and family members who continue to openly support him, and I must admit that this does make me think less of them.  I find that I really feel I need to say this, and since those family members seldom if ever read the posts I make here at DietHobby,  I doubt that my statements here will offend them. 

  I have posted a few public articles on my personal “Phyllis Collins” Facebook pages showing some of my most outstanding objections to Trump, so I won’t attempt to duplicate that information here.  I feel very strongly about my objections to Trump, and I agree with those political experts who say that those people who fail to vote or who vote for a third party candidate are actually helping get Trump elected.  Therefore I will be voting for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election, and I urge all of my friends, family, and acquaintances to do the same. 

Thank you Carly Simon for your song in the video below.
