The past eight years have been difficult for many Americans that have suffered in the worst economic recession in years. But the policies that the Obama administration has employed has brought the unemployment rate down from 10% in 2008 to 5% in 2016.
The stock market has risen from 7000 to 18000 during the same period. These indicators would suggest that the Country has grown in a positive manner and might continue to grow and expand with a continuation of like policies. To change the direction of our country and return to trickle down economics would be a mistake and create a negative change in momentum.
Just comparing the information that appears on the two candidates web sites should provide some information to help make an informed decision on what their respective positions are on various subjects. However the leadership styles of the candidates have become the determining factor for many Americans this election cycle. Trump sounds like a third world dictator and like his role model Putin. Clintons campaign has been about working together in the form of a democracy. Trump has vowed to put his rival in prison if elected like a dictator and that only he can fix America. In a Trump administration we would not need Congress or the Judicial System as he would decide what, who, why and how American tax dollars would be spent.
When a real estate magnet states that he knows more about ISIS then American Generals facing them every day, or that the way to eliminate our enemies is to carpet bomb their country, confiscate their natural resources, randomly target their families with air strikes and virtually occupy their country; there is a problem with that candidate and strategy.
Hence, the editorial board of The Providence American has chosen to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.
