Trump's Missed Opportunities

Trump's Missed Opportunities

The much anticipated first debate between Donald John Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sept. 26, 2016 didn’t release any fireworks and bombs, though Trump missed many opportunities his inexperience as a politician highlighted.

Why not release his tax returns when she comes clean on the emails and the Clinton Foundation's slipping and dipping?

Why does she get to claim the high road on race when it was the Clinton’s "three strikes and you’re out" which put over 100,000 men of color in jail subjecting them to lives minus societal meaning — which she now wants to rush in and fix?

Moderator Lester Holt asked some no win questions when national defense, Obamacare, immigration, and other issues of security involving terrorism need airing.

Why don’t they have a microphone that can be cut off when their time runs out?

The liberal verbiage was the same old recycled politics, without a clue as to how to pay for things, other than the erroneous notion that the rich who already pay 47 percent of the federal taxes will have to be squeezed more.

Where is the responsibility of all citizens to pay their fair share?

Both candidates fall head over heels in love with social feel good programs which have no constitutional basis, e.g. child care. Though things may sound good and morally appealing, if they have no constitutional basis they should not be done by the federal government.

Solutions to our dilemmas include requiring all federal programs have a constitutional connect; reviewed every 2-3 years to assess their effectiveness before they can be renewed, and also be designed to be self-sustaining after three years, so that federal funding isn’t expected forever.

Each candidate needs to define what three programs can be cut, diminished, or contracted out to decrease the federal debt.

We need some real data on the impact of immigration, refugee expansion, and other programs which take away resources from our schools, healthcare, and other citizen needs.

Albert Einstein’s words that if you keep doing the same thing you’ve always done and expect a different result rang true in the first debates.

The question is, Was anyone listening?

In swimming, if one is drowning, often the rescuer stands the risk of also going down while trying to save the victim. Will we continue to let the nation drown in debt or own up to our own culpability, making needed changes which recognize that we can’t give everything to everybody.

This spoils children and will ruin the nation.
