Shame and Deception - Our Presidential candidates are not so presidential in conduct

Shame and Deception – our political candidates have reached a new low - without exception, all are guilty of these acts.

Looking at the current events and how our world has changed and evolved around politics and religion, I don’t know if there is a point of reversing what and who we have become. I mean, there is something profoundly wrong with America as it stands today, divided, fragmented and changing in so many bitter ways.

All those running for the office of President threaten to make it worse. They have, collectively, managed to increase the hate and fear inside America towards epic and gigantic proportions. They have accomplished nothing but spread hate, lies and religious blasphemy as well as creating deliberate delays of political pandering within their own parties. Every threat they deliver makes it worse for the rest of us to bear such intolerance and hate.

All candidates have been revulsive and tempestuous in character and nature. Each of them have taken the low moral road to sell their souls and name to the public and beg them to casts votes for them. It is indeed, repulsive and un-characteristic of any nobility in name or character.

All are seeking to be accepted by the moderates of society and the extremists of race baiting and religious persecutions. They have no appeal to those who still believe in equality for men under our Constitution. This relationship of dividing ideologies has divided our nation.

This fighting and bickering will get nothing done for the good of America except to destroy it from within. Each and every one of them are solely responsible for the hate, fear and biases they are spreading and making assertions that their action would make America great again.

None have experienced or delivered any real achievements – none with no exceptions. Every one of them have engaged in theology instead of patriotism and basic American ideologies rooted in our communities and homes.

None have expressed specific concerns on creating hope for peace, jobs and unity amongst the people instead of war, hate and fear. America has to push back and find better candidates. Even the least of the evil is the worst for the job. If we are to have a chance to avoid war, hatred and discrimination, we need to find another candidate not on the stage today.

They all deflect the blame and accept none of it for themselves. They have delayed their plans in fear that it would be unpopular or unrealistic under the current climate or political wishes of the country. In other words, every one of them are cowardice in their roles and presentations.

Those who do speak, spoke without the political knowledge how to do such things – they are shooting off the hip and hoping that the spraying of words will hit someone or something strong enough to take hold. Unfortunately, the only thing spewed so far is hate and distrust of government and those who work for it. 

Each are pandering to who they believe to be their favorite audience whether rich or poor, they prefer the rich to raise the money they need to endure the campaign financial stressors. They have yet to appeal to the average citizen, the military veterans and the students who know more than they lead us to believe as they study the left and the right for better ideas or imperfections.

Their speeches give me visions of allusions to radicals and not the average person. None are promoting or developing trust in each other as a nation but rather chose to divide us all based on race and religion. Each candidate has dug deep into their bags of tricks and their words are codes for different meanings.

Whatever it is they say, it has an exactly backwards meaning. None can be trusted and none will rule the country with any soundness or justice for the people and offer sound leadership. It looks like they are imitating each other but use different words.
