Don’t be a sheep — reject both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

This photo combo of file images shows U.S. presidential candidates Donald Trump, left, and Hillary Clinton. Income inequality has been a rallying cry of the 2016 election, with more Americans turning fearful and angry about a shrinking middle class. Trump has pledged to restore prosperity by ripping up trade deals and using tariffs to return manufacturing jobs from overseas. Clinton has backed a debt-free college option and higher minimum wages to help the middle class.

I could not agree more with the “In 2016 election, character matters more than policies, politics” letter from Steve Sainsbury on June 16.

Finally, someone with his head screwed on straight. Not one of the sheep that blindly follows the impossible choices we have been given to vote for in this upcoming election.

I am of the same opinion that we are being forced to pick between a narcissistic joke and a woman with a criminal past who may soon be under indictment — a proven liar, who has an immoral and lying husband, but still convinced that we are so stupid we will vote for her anyway.

Am I and Mr. Sainsbury the only ones who notice this? Is any one of you out there tired of the no-choice policy?

Raise your hand! Don’t just join the line to hell!

Speak up! Vote independent. Vote a write in. Just don’t settle for the sad and impossible candidates the Democrats and Republicans offer. You are so much better than that! You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig!
