Only Candidate Qualified…

Dear Editor,
In the race for President, there is only one candidate that is qualified for this critical job.
As a conservative editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal noted, Hillary Clinton’s election is all that can save us from the “reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed and psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House.”
Trump and his supporters claim that he was ”brilliant” when it was revealed he undoubtedly paid no federal income tax for the past 18 years. What does that make those of us who paid our taxes to support our schools, our infrastructure, our troops and our veterans (whom Trump claims to support)?
While Idaho GOP voters did not support Trump in the 2016 primary, some may tune in to his fear-mongering now. But we are reminded of the 1964 election. Then, as in our current one, similar misinformation was spread that ”the election may be rigged,” and there were efforts to restrict voter turnout.
Lyndon Johnson countered by exploiting Barry Goldwater’s lack of experience and his dangerous instability. The result: Johnson won an overwhelming victory—winning 44 states, including Idaho.
