Having made calls and canvassed for Hillary Clinton, author Anita M. Harris is saddened, confused and shocked by Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump. Here is Clinton’s concession speech, which Harris finds eloquent and inspirational.
In this independent commentary, author Steven Cushing draws parallels between 1933 Germany and the present, and lays out similarities between presidential candidate Donald Trump and Hitler, Caligulia, Mussolini, Whitey Bulger and others. He asks those considering voting for Trump: Would you entrust Bernie Madoff with the password to your bank account? Would you entrust Bill Clinton with the keys to your daughter’s bedroom? Do you really want to entrust the likes of Donald Trump with the keys to the nation’s nuclear codes? He then urges voters to, “in Trump’s words, let ‘common sense’ prevail, and as Ted Cruz said at the Republican convention, vote your conscience.”
