Sad Times for the American Voter

No matter who wins the election, there will be little joy.

Both Clinton and Trump would enter the White House under dark clouds, they would be the most unpopular president-elects in history.

Talking Points believes most Americans simply want the tawdry campaign to end.  It's that terrible for the country.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that more women are emerging to hammer Trump.

Piling on is now an American sport.

And like the NFL games, the news media has set up programs where so-called experts sit around for hours offering gross speculation about things they could not possibly know anything about.

In America today, all accusations are convictions.

Therefore both Trump and Clinton, who have extremely controversial resumes, will be battered without mercy right up to Election Day.

WikiLeaks's apparently has thousands of emails left to drop on Clinton.

Expect a torrent of personal accusations against Trump.

The result: a diminished country.

We the people do not deserve this, but there is little we can do about it.

Clinton and Trump won the nominations, that is our system.  Both have dubious histories but voters did not seem to care.

People ask me all the time, where are the inspirational leaders like the Roosevelts and Ronald Reagan?

The answer to the question is that most decent people don't want to be torn apart by Internet guttersnipes and a press that celebrates scandal, condoning contrived or even dishonest attacks.

Thus, many good leaders simply sit it out.

By the way there are no journalistic standards anymore, as the WikiLeak hackers have demonstrated.

The cold truth is our political system has devolved into a chaotic circus where candidates with the most money usually win.

Summing up, with no privacy in the country anymore with little restraint in the media with millions of Americans more interested in texting and social media than actually experiencing life, we have now come to a point in history that would give solace to Nero.

The next president of the United States will either be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

As Cronkite once said, that's the way it is.

And that's the memo.
