Kimo's world #134-Blog #1802
Editors note;
This blog appeared as a guest column in the 06-15-16 edition of the Kauai Garden Island News;
"We can do better than hate"
Everything is about hate, from the election to local talk story

The election season for President starts 2 years before the general election.  Football season eventually draws to an end after the Superbowl with a 5 month,16 game, plus playoff demanding schedule. Baseball season eventually ends after the world series and a grueling 6 months of 132 games and playoffs---however the presidential election seems to never end.


Right now it's not about what the candidates can do for you, it's about the hatred that one party, their candidate and it's voters have towards the other party. The hatred has reached viral and pandemic proportions separating family and friends.  This is not making America great again, but rather making America hate and lose it's fate again.



Nobody I know is saying I love Hillary because she will do this and that, or I love "The Donald" because of this. People are saying Hillary is a crook and a liar, Trump is a racist,xenophobe, homophobe and narcissist. I reckon narcissist  really doesn't count, after-all what politician isn't narcissistic? Sadly both candidates used the horrific shootings in Orlando minutes after the tragedy to benefit their own run for president.


These two candidates are not only battling each other but have torn families and friendships apart. These two candidates have destroyed America before either has even taken office.

It's been tough being a Trump supporter in a predominately Democratic state with most my friends and family siding Democrat. I no longer believe as strong  in "The Donald," at one point I actually  liked Hillary. At this point I believe both of these candidates are a cancer that can not be healed with radiation, "Kimo-therapy" (sic) or 4 years in the white-house.


Everything about this election is about hate, from  local talk story to national politics. It's time to debate the issues and stop the back and forth child's play of name calling. All this is getting really ugly and hard to take no matter what side your on--- and there's still 5 more excruciating  months of this game they call election politics.


The good news is that The NFL football season starts in September, and it will be much  easier to change the channel. In the meantime the show must go on. However I am a realist and with all said; one candidate still out Trumps(sic) the other---some say the best of the two evils.



P.S.
A must see video for both Conservatives and Liberals
 on Bill Maher's opinion of Radical Islam---and yes he said "Radical Islam" unlike most libs.
Ironically he sounds a lot like his nemesis Donald J. Trump!
