Clinton's actions speak louder than Trump's words
How many times we have heard that actions speak louder than words? The term is a well-known cultural phrase and platitude that gives higher importance to action over talk.
I am not defending Donald Trump for his words; I am simply stating the obvious. Donald Trump has been in the public eye almost all of his life. He has made many embarrassing statements in his time in the public arena. There is nothing new here, either in the original Access Hollywood video or the apologetic video he recorded last night.
The same argument can be made for the Hillary speech dump. Trump will have to live with everything that has been disclosed (good, bad, and ugly), just as Clinton has had to do.
Donald Trump said, "I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I'm not." Honestly, we all knew who Donald Trump was before he entered the race.
Macho male locker room talk is not illegal or criminal. Trump is known to be an occasionally boorish man in private. Hillary and her husband have been unindicted criminals for forty years. Locker room talk, as much as it is distasteful, doesn't kill people.
I agree that actions speak louder than words. It has been reported that Hillary got the rapist of a 12-year-old girl off and then gloated about it. So here's the difference: Donald Trump has said awful things, but Hillary has done awful things. I think what is more important in this election are jobs, the economy, national security, illegal immigration and open borders, the last of which Mrs. Clinton willingly advocates.
Let me disillusion some people. Trump is not Jesus Christ. He is not a flawless man. He is a wheeler-dealer turned politician. People of this land have a choice of a sort: Hillary or Trump. Some say it is no choice. Well, they can complain all they want to, but nothing will change. Once again, it is decision time. We do well to recognize that short-sighted people with short memories are prone to make terrible choices, even when they have the best of intentions.
The foremost topic on the mind of American voters is how to make America safe again. Some believe that the Democrats can indeed be the answer. Unfortunately, their answer most likely will be disastrous.
Faced with a ruthless enemy bent on your destruction, you either stand and fight or cut and run hoping that the enemy will not pursue you to your grave. For the past 8 years, the policies of Obama and Clinton have been one failure after another. The list of failures for this loser team is indeed long and glaring.

Only Hillary Clinton, only Hillary Clinton, only Hillary Clinton over and over again. Perhaps Trump can use some of these talking points on the next debate.
Folks, this election is not about Donald Trump. This election is not about his debate performances or even what he says. This election is about the future of America. It is about the survival of America. Mrs. Clinton has made a career out of corruption and crime and has been breaking the law since her work on the Watergate committee. Everyone knows that.
American voters will have a choice to make in November – between change and the status quo.
