The Clinton-Trump Debates The Most Significant Since Lincoln-Douglas Senate Debates In Illinois In 1858!

Presidential debates have occurred since 1976, and also, originally took place in 1960, but no debate has mattered as much as the one coming up on Monday between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

No more significant debate has occurred since Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas had model debates for the Senate race in Illinois in 1858.

Hillary Clinton is super qualified to be President, while Donald Trump is totally unqualified, and were he to win, American democracy and constitutional order would be endangered.

Donald Trump is a Fascist demagogue, who has no credentials, and has the diplomatic, military, intelligence, and economic experts up in arms over the threat he presents.

Much of the Republican Establishment, including the two living former Republican Presidents, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, and much of the conservative media and intellectual class, are deplored by his candidacy.

Trump has insulted, degraded, ridiculed, belittled, and shown a lack of respect toward women, African Americans, Mexicans, Muslims, and the disabled, and has worked to divide Americans, and gained the backing of racists, nativists, misogynists, xenophobes, and all kinds of white supremacists who also are anti semites.

He has praised dictators, including Kim Jong Un of North Korea and Vladimir Putin of Russia, and talks loosely about using the nuclear button.

The man is a clear and present danger who must be prevented from winning the Presidency, and we must all root on Hillary Clinton to score a win over this demagogue on Monday night!

    I just can’t bring myself to agree on this one, Professor.
    They were real oratorical debates back then. Both Lincoln and Douglas had a real grasp of the issues of the day.
    Trump only has a made up grasp of any issue.
    And I can’t think of a comparable situation where either of those candidates would put reality stars in the front row to goad an opponent like the Clinton campaign did with Cuban , only to be “trumped” by The Donald threatening to seat Gennifer Flowers next to him. Oh, the scandal it would have caused.
    It would be like Lincoln inviting Henry Beecher , only to have Douglas seat Elizabeth Tilton next to him.

    Although my sense of history is off. The Beecher-Tilton scandal didn’t happen until 1870. I guess my sense of reality matches The Donald’s for accuracy at times..

    Paul, you are so funny! šŸ™‚

    I mean in the effect on the nation that this debate represents, not comparing Clinton to Lincoln or Trump to Douglas!
