I'm sorry for the gap in articles. I've been sidetracked by real life. Also WUWT seems tame compared to the soap opera that is taking place in the US election.
The Trump Conspiracy Theorists
In case you missed it, this from twitter. First of all, Donald Trump Jr, who gets his soundbites from the uber-conspiracy blog Prison Planet:
The Clinton campaign didn't comment on that as far as I know, but it did notice how Donald Trump himself gets his sound bites from another uber-conspiracist, Alex Jones:
Where does Trump get his talking points from? Often this alt-right conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones. (Watch all the way to the end.) pic.twitter.com/87zLGAbvyG— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 16, 2016
That's when he's not being an "unwitting" dupe of Vladimir Putin:
The connections between Trump and Russia are real...and they're cause for concern. pic.twitter.com/ZaP9KdFFyC— The Briefing (@TheBriefing2016) October 15, 2016
Vote early, vote often
Yeah - that's an old joke and I'm not serious, except about the "vote" part.
I expect most readers here are repelled by Donald Trump and his supporters. I also expect a few readers here aren't big fans of Hillary Clinton despite her being the most experienced, most prepared and best candidate for decades (at least). However if you think that a protest vote will do some good, please don't be naive. Read this article by Charles M. Blow, which he directed at young voters but applies equally well no matter your age. It's called "The Folly of the Protest Vote".
Think about it. Do you want Trump as President? Can you imagine the global chaos he could cause? Do you want Putin running the USA by proxy? Do you really want to have the "leader of the free world" a man with absolutely no government experience (apart from getting his accountant to prepare his tax returns)? Do you want Trump, who is not stable, knows nothing of government in America, nothing of foreign affairs let alone government and foreign affairs, interacting with leaders of hostile and (currently) friendly nations?
If Americans elect Donald J. Trump as US President, it will have ramifications throughout the world for a very long time. While I can't vote, I can urge those of you in the USA to do so.
Yes, I know it's not my place to tell Americans how to vote. On the other hand, the choice of US President affects the world way beyond US borders and for a very long time.
Remember Brexit. Remember Tony Abbott. Remember Al Gore.
