We don't need a 'nice' president

Now is the time for all courageous Americans to come to the aid of our country.

We are living during a few months of crucial American history, and we have at least two more opportunities to save America. We as Americans have awakened, and we are angry.

Trump represents the anger of patriotism. If we wanted a "nice guy" for president, we probably would be voting for Huckabee, but we need a Teddy Roosevelt, Truman, Patton, Kissinger, Baker, Gingrich, Reagan or Donald Trump. We don't need a Carter, Junior Bush, Obama, Sanders or Hillary, and we don't need a self-consumptive society.

And let us never forget the misguidance of Cheney, Colin Powell and now Ben Rhodes.

Vote for Hillary if you like industry staying abroad, illegal immigration, social welfare being taken advantage of, living in an unsafe world with ISIS, believing we can "buy" respect and bravery with $150 billion and believing that leaving our warriors in Benghazi to perish was the right thing to do.

Let us heed the lessons of history, as Franklin D. Roosevelt maintained, that "continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit."
