Everybody loves a circus and a brief escape from reality, but selecting the person to lead this nation for four years isn’t an escape from reality; it’s deadly serious. It’s a process that brave men and women have given their lives to preserve. It’s a process that every American has a moral obligation to respect and a duty to support.
While voters might enjoy seeing Donald Trump playing the clown on a political platform, he is doing a monumental disservice to America’s process of orderly transfer of power. Worse, voters are giving him the venue to marginalize the electoral process. However disenchanted we have become with political correctness, we do our nation a disservice by encouraging that marginalization.
The choice voters must make is which candidate will control our future, which is the best and the brightest, which can manage all the challenges, which one has the moral character?
It isn’t a carnival. It’s the bedrock of our democracy. The clowns belong in the circus.
