Response letter to fear of Trump appeared in 8/4/16 Swarthmorean

To the Editor:

I’m also afraid, but my fear is that Hillary Clinton will be elected President.

Hillary Clinton showed a stunning lack of judgment with her use of her private e-mail server. Will her judgment become better if she becomes President? T

he DNC also showed a stunning lack of judgment by deciding in advance to back Hillary Clinton and not give Bernie Sanders an equal shot during the primary season. Hillary Clinton managed to accomplish almost nothing while Secretary of State and Senator. Can we count on her to do as much while President?

For most of 2004, I was part of ACT (America Coming Together), which was an organization based on preying on voters’ fear of George W. Bush. This fear campaign did not result in the election of a President Kerry.

Since neither Donald nor Hillary have shown any indications that they would make even an adequate President, my vote must be for either Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate (johnsonweld.com) or Green Party candidate Jill Stein (jill2016.com). Gary Johnson has had a Town Hall on CNN and Jill Stein has been interviewed on Democracy Now. Both will be on the ballot in Pennsylvania, along with other alternative party candidates.
