These are based on my own personal observations and opinions.
Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton’s Motivation: Doesn’t hate the U.S., but really doesn’t give a damn about it one way or the other. The core drive here for Hillary Clinton is personal acquisition of wealth by any corrupt means and cost, to acquire political power to keep a corrupt, crony government system alive long enough so that she and Bill can trade and/or sell political secrets, political deals, political favors, manipulations, blackmails, etc., to enable themselves to keep getting “rich, rich, rich” on the back of anyone they can. Hillary Clinton is obsessed with money, prestige, and political power, and no one or no thing will stand in her way – I think she would even encourage war if that will help her become richer. Not a healthy direction for our country, the United States.
In addition, I think President Obama should be worried about a Hillary Clinton Presidency because I think that if she had to, Hillary Clinton would redo or undo everything Obama did if it meant saving her crony government financial-gaining gravy train and connections.
Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s Motivation: Already very rich, and earned every penny of it in the private sector. The drive here for Mr. Trump is a personal sincerity and love of the United States of America, an opportunity to fix a badly, broken government system and get rid of government waste, work towards healing a failing national economy, wanting a WIN-WIN situation for all Americans, defend and secure our Constitution, including our Bill of Rights, a desire to protect America, and help create opportunities for greatness in all Americans through reductions in taxes and regulations. Mr. Trump is not the perfect presidential candidate, and is perhaps too much of a mixed-economy type, but under the current context and situation of our country and the world, he is at least focused in the right direction towards more freedom, security, and prosperity in America for all Americans. It is a starting point. As Ayn Rand held, context is everything.
It’s quite simple, really. Major damage to our country has already been done by the Obama Administration. At this point, the only choice left is between Trump or Clinton. It is a choice between a sincere builder who loves America and wants to repair the damage, or a crony politician who could care less about anything except her obsession with wealth and power.
