"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

 The drama of the U.S. Presidential election Is positively breath-taking. New characters keep being introduced and  the screenplay is fast and ever changing. Republicans are in vast disarray and Democrats  are off and running with a head start

 Hillary should withold response  to Twitter Trumpery. Name-calling is obviously less than sharp repartee. Juvenile drivel would shrivel in the drought and drive the  fool to further excess and condemnation.   

Former Governor of Massachusetts and former Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in a lengthy media interview has indicated implacable opposition to his party's current candidate, making serious accusations of racism, mysogonism, bigotry and complete lack of character.

Desperate current Republican leaders demand that he clean up his act. How preposterous! As if a person at the age of seventy, without wisdom or discipline, is capable of change. He has publicly declared there will be no change. He will continue to "Telll it like it is"

Zero,zilch,nil,nada, none whatsoever. The man is  incapable of recognizing the need, let alone effecting the change. 

Shakespeare could not have visualized such havoc. Midsummer Night's Dream might be closest to this real life drama.

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts quoting the Republican candidate,states
"you can't make this stuff up".

Senior Senator Susan Collins of Maine , Republican, has stated she will vote for Hillary Clinton.
The dangerous, disgraceful bellicose billionaire has earned no respect from that source. 

Another respected Republican Senator has stated "one day of Trump would  be worse than four years of President Hillary Clinton " He will vote Democrat candidate Clinton  for president .

The chorus of disgust grows with the realisation only one way can absolutely keep the worst candidate ever out of the seat of power is to ensure it is won by the Democratic candidate.  

Almost universal pandering to Independent Senator Bernie Sanders is a sight to behold. 

Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, he plays  the same  notes on his flute over and over and over again with,it seems, resolute intent of leading his followers deep into the mountain perhaps never to be seen again. 

I have tried to stay detached from the contest. 

This last week the allure was irresistible.

The last two houses that sold on my street were on the market for less than a week, had a bidding war, sold over asking and sold for $1.2 million+.... It is crazy that a 3000 sq ft house that is 20 years old is worth more than 4 times what it cost new.
