Content highlights

1. Hillary’s economic policy

    1. Fail to identify the cause of the current debt and thus unable to reverse the trend.

    2. Fail to identify the cause of the outflow of U.S. jobs and thus unable to reverse the trend.

    3. Continues the policy of Obama Administration, which proves WRONG.

    4. Will result in the pitfalls of many European countries struggling in quagmire of debt and welfare.

2. Hillary’s national security plan

  1. Nebulous ties with Mideast donors and “pay to play” practice compromised our national security.

  2. Democrat’s traditional political correctness prevents her from addressing the radical Islam honestly.

  3. Her prior records of destabilizing Mideast and creating refugee crisis showed a constant miscalculation.

3. Impact to Supreme court and 2nd amendment

  1. Democrats are generally more “progressive”, and tend to modify constitution to advance their political agenda.


4. Credibility and Risk Issues.

  1. The risk of a Hillary presidency is policy-based. The threat is certain. Threat of a Trump presidency is temperament based, has been hyped, and is most probably untrue.

  2. Hillary is a proven corrupted career politician, whose misconducts in PUBLIC OFFICE, amounting to crime, have been covered by the mainstream liberal media. Donald Trump’s unpolished remarks AS A BUSINESSMAN, however, were always scrutinized, exaggerated or even falsified. The media is corrupted!


Dear Fellow Americans,

We are a group of Chinese Americans. We love this country, and we are deeply troubled by what we’ve seen in this election. As such, we decide to write this open letter to share a few of our thoughts with you.

Our nation has come to a critical moment. The November 8th selection is so important that it is time for every one of us to put down our partisan differences and reexamine our rationale for our choices. This small flyer is intended to inspire a thoughtful reflection, and I hope you will, for the sake of our country, spend a few minutes finishing reading it.

First of all, I want to caution everyone that feelings can be deceptive, and basing our choices primarily on feelings is dangerous, because politicians are all great rhetoricians artful at manipulating people’s feelings and perceptions. So we MUST stay cool and focus on the real political agendas of each candidate and understand their implications to us, our children and our grandchildren.


Is Hillary’s economic plan going to work?

First, let’s talk about the debt.

The national debt increased from roughly 9 to 20 trillion during Obama administration’s 8 years, and this increase, which is roughly 11 trillion, is more than the debt accumulated during all the preceding 43 presidents combined. We Americans need to understand how it was created.  Some might cite the 2008 financial crisis as the culprit. However, U.S. was officially out of recession by June 2009, but debt continued to skyrocket through that time till now. What on earth happened to this country?

With no major wars fought and nor major infrastructures built during this period, the only possible cause is the dramatically expanded social security programs, which encourage the laziness of quite a few and penalize hardworking middle class, and the wasteful expenditures of this Democrat administration, which can be suggested by the outrageous cost of Obama Care website.

The hallmark of American spirit is limited government built on the ideal of “check and balance”, and faith in the market and entrepreneurship of American people. Now, under the Democrat’s ideals, almost twice as many people are on food stamps as were when Obama took office, and more people are simply sitting at home living on social security. According to US Department of Labor, American work force participation was at record low at 62.4% in September 2015. Ironically, as more people are no longer seeking employment, the unemployment rate goes down. This decreased unemployment rate has been cited as one accomplishment by the Democrat. Also going down, as one can easily understand, is the productivity of U.S. as a nation. If this trend continues without due changes, the debt issue will simply get worse, and our national productivity and national competitiveness will keep declining, and we are doomed to the pitfalls of many European countries like France, Greece and Spain.


Therefore, it is a time for America to make a change in its direction. Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton’s economic plan is just a continuation of the one we had in the last eight years, or it may even get worse as she aggressively attempts her free college plans. Her economic agenda will only pull America further off its due track and put us deep in debt and tax burden.


Second, let’s talk about jobs.

Creating jobs is certainly government’s responsibility, but there are different approaches to it. Hillary Clinton’s plan is centered around government driven investments in clean energy and high technology. But history have always shown that government driven investment is inefficient and incapable of sustaining long-term jobs. If you have doubts about this claim, just think about the nightmarish bureaucracy of VA and the 500 million spent on training 4 or 5 Syrian rebels. If taxpayers’ money is spent this way to “create” jobs, you have to think twice.

On the other hand, the unfair trade deal US has with foreign countries are indeed hurting American jobs. For example, many of the Chinese goods enter the US market free of custom tariffs, but a US manufactured Cadillac CTS has to pay about 30% non-tariff fees, thus hurting its competitiveness in Chinese market. A sense-making businessman can easily identify this problem, and he knows that jobs cannot be created in sufficient numbers without addressing the unfair trade deals. That’s exactly what Donald Trump wants to do and Hillary Clinton, however, mocked Trump’s trade deal renegotiation plan as “isolationism”.



Is Hillary’s plan going to make America safer?

The threat of Radical Islam

We need to talk about ISIS. ISIS is a pressing threat, but just a tiny tip of the gigantic iceberg of radical Islamists around the world who can turn into terrorists and launch strike from within at any time. The mass killing in Orlando of Florida and San Bernardino of California and the recent NYC bombing all testify to this pattern.

If we don’t want to see in home the chaos in today’s Paris, Brussel and Nice, we MUST face and address the rise of radical Islam honestly, and we must act NOW. Hillary Clinton’s policy on radical Islam is extremely dangerous to our nation because, due to her nebulous ties with middle east donors, she even doesn’t want to mention radical Islam. Unwillingness to call enemy by its name reflects the Democrat’s long standing tradition of beautifying radical Islam, pandering to particular voter groups and catering to their middle-east foundation donors.

Under Hillary’s plan, the United States is going to take in hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees while intelligence officials publicly admit we cannot verify their backgrounds. While we sympathize with those refugees, playing moral saints and admitting them at the risk of Americans’ safety and security is naïve and irresponsible. In this context, having Hillary as commander in chief is extremely dangerous.

In regards to humanitarian treatment of those refugees, Donald Trump did offer a more sense-making plan: to establish inside Syria a safe zone or sanctuary and settle these refugees there. This way, the refugees won’t have to experience the challenge of assimilating into the western countries. Statistics how a large portion of Muslim refugees failed to assimilate into local culture and in many cases, they simply got radicalized after feeling the frustration of estrangement from the mainstream society.

Faced with dramatically increased terrorist attack from inside, Germans have shown their disapproval of Angela Merkel’s refugee policy in the recent election, and we Americans cannot wait till that day to awake.



Supreme court and 2nd Amendment

Supreme court is the ultimate safeguard of our constitution, and constitution is the ultimate safeguard of our freedom and prosperity. With the death of the conservative judge Antonin Scalia, the Democrats are eager to replace with a liberal judge. If that indeed takes place, the constitution will be peril because Democrats, as they call themselves progressive party, are eager to institutionalize their ideological agenda into laws. For example, the Obama administration issued executive orders demanding all public schools in the United States to allow transgenders to use restroom as they wish. Only if Donald Trump is elected will the supreme court again restore its conservative majority, which will help safeguard the integrity of our constitution.

So we have enough reasons to fear that the 2nd Amendment will be endangered if Hillary becomes president. Donald Trump, by contrast, is a strong defender of the constitution and protect American’s right to defend. So if we want to live free, we cannot elect a president who stands the possibility of depriving our rights to defend ourselves.


Whose presidency poses a bigger threat?

It’s generally accepted that neither is nearly a good choice, but many feel Hillary Clinton has the better experience and temperament, while Donald Trump doesn’t seem to have the temperament required to be president.

Whereas election of either one poses challenges of some types to our country, there are fundamental differences between the two scenarios.

First of all, the threat of a Hillary presidency is mainly policy-based, which means, even if she executes her plan faithful and diligently, she will still bring great trouble to this nation because her policy is not right. The eight years of Obama administration has seen many setbacks in key measures our economy. The following graphs show the Obama administration in red.

We simply cannot repeat the mistakes of many Europeans countries who are stuck in the quagmire welfare and terrorism.

On the other hand, the threat of a Donald Trump presidency is mainly temperament-based. Donald Trump did exhibit bluntness rarely seen in conventional politicians. But he has been a businessman and an entertainment personality for many years. He is fighting the corrupted and incompetent political establishment alone. He has very strong feelings about that fight. All these factors made him outspoken and sometimes provocative. But we’ve seen he has showed change since the beginning of his campaign, especially during the first debate, where he even didn’t unleash any personal attacks against Hillary Clinton.

Second, Hillary Clinton is a proven corrupted career politician with very bad track records, some of which amount to crime. The threat of a Hillary presidency is just certain. Hillary Clinton recklessly mishandled classified information and has caused material damage to our national security, and she mishandled the Benghazi crisis, which led to the tragic death of the American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the first US ambassador to be killed on duty since 1979. When she was Secretary of State, her Clinton foundation also received massive amount of money from many special interests groups, and middle east countries, some of which are sponsors of terrorism. More importantly, Hillary Clinton lied time from time over her fault. She has lost the credibility to be president of this country.

Sadly, a career politician as corrupted as Hillary is well protected by the mainstream media like CNN, New York Times and so on. Those media would rather grill on the legal tax avoidance of Donald Trump, a businessman who created tens of thousands of jobs and pay millions of dollars of tax, than probe into many of the dangerous behaviors of Hillary, who, as Secretary of State, directly handled many issues related to our national security. What an joke of those liberal media!

On the other hand, the threat of a Trump presidency is presumptive, and to a large extent has been exaggerated by the much biased media. For example, the vast majority of media covered Trump’s calling Mr. Universe “Miss Piggy”, but none of them cared about why FBI director James Comey didn’t recommend prosecution for Hillary Clinton’s misconduct. The mainstream media even portrayed Mr. Trump as an irascible person who will readily press the nuke button once provoked. However, even the whimsical and capricious North Korea dictator King Jong-un didn’t do that, why do we fear that a successful businessman like Trump will do that?


Conclusion

United States of America has been led off its due course for a long time. Laws are replaced by political correctness and constitution is at peril. History tells us that a disaster always strikes hardest when people are not aware of it. Ask yourself, are you aware of all those potential risks we discussed above? Shall we take immediate address to Spread this message, and tell your friends that our country is now at a historic cross road, and everyone should think carefully before casting their votes.
