Washington Post: Mr. Trump’s election would be a major threat to the economy

Original post made by Hamp, Menlo Park: Belle Haven, on Nov 6, 2016

"Mr. Trump’s election would be a major new source of instability here and abroad, compared with which the Brexit vote would look like a hiccup. Suddenly, a man with a deep-seated hostility to, and incomprehension of, markets would be at the helm of the world’s preeminent market economy."

Major recession and national security are the preeminent reasons to vote for Clinton.

Another really strong reason.

New York times; Thin Line Splits Donald Trump’s Politics and Businesses

When Donald J. Trump was building casinos in Atlantic City in the 1990s, he spoke of his dream of bringing jobs and development to the hard-luck community. In the end, after all the bankruptcies, layoffs and stiffed contractors, it was Mr. Trump who walked away with tens of millions of dollars in management fees and huge tax deductions that may have helped him avoid paying personal income taxes for nearly two decades.


Imagine having a president who owes hundreds of millions of dollars to foreign banks and other foreign entities that he doesn’t tell us about,” Mrs. Clinton said at a rally in Pittsburgh on Friday. “Ask yourself: So if he’s sitting across the table negotiating with people from those countries, is he going to put his own financial interests ahead of America’s interests?”

At the same rally, one of Mrs. Clinton’s supporters, Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, put it even more bluntly: “There’s going to come a time, if Donald Trump, God help us, was president, where a Putin or an Assad would say to him, ‘Donald, if you do this, I’ll give you $20 billion,’”

What would a money rubbing narcissistic who already took Russian only do?

Washington post. New York times. Here's the wall Street Journal- Clinton up by 4

Web Link

But here's the kicker - Trump too lame to run a gotv program, Clinton runs a solid effort. Result?

"In one significant finding, the poll found that Mrs. Clinton leads by 12 percentage points among people who say they have already voted, likely a sign that Mrs. Clinton’s drive to get her supporters to vote early is paying off. Some 51% of early voters support Mrs. Clinton; 39% support Mr. Trump."

President Clinton.

They had to cheat to win, via the press.

When we as a country have lost an independent press, We have lost our democracy as a whole.

When you control the press you are no different than any other dictatorship in the world,

Look around every successful dictatorship needs to control 2 things, the press and the military.
