I am not sure Gary North agrees with me on this but you really want the most hated, ineffectual person in power, when all the choices are aggressive interventionists.
When it comes to Trump versus Clinton. Hillary is far and away the winner. Who really wants the masses all jazzed up over tariffs, US boots on the ground in the Middle East, attacks on Libya, etc., the way Tump would get a significant portion of the masses?
There is no doubt Hillary (and her staff) would do terrible things, but they can't come close to what a "great leader" can do.
Dr. North makes my case for Hillary:
[C]harisma-challenged..., the woman may be indicted by the justice department for her unguarded emails. Maybe she won’t go to prison, but she will spend her Presidency dealing with subpoenas and legal responses. What kind of agenda is this?...
[I]f she is elected, will she face a united and implacable Republican-dominated Congress? Will she get any piece of partisan legislation through this Congress in the first two years? Any President who comes up empty handed in the first two years is finished for the next two.
I want to make clear. I am not endorsing Hillary, She would do terrible things as president, but I fear the "great leader" more.
