Election 2016 is about "Normal" vs. "Abnormal"

I'll just keep saying it and hoping that a few Republicans, or like me independents who aren't thrilled by Hillary Clinton, realize and accept that the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States would represent a collossal disaster of political ignorance and misguided voting. It's not just about policies - though The Donald's are certainly ripe for criticism. This is about integrity, dignity, and respect. And Donald Trump is just an incredibly crass, immature, ignorant, unsophisticated, vindictive, bigoted, horrible, awful person.

The recent national conventions of both the Democratic and Republican parties offered glaringly disparate portraits of their nominees and their visions for America. It wasn't just about liberal vs conservative or Democrat vs Republican; it was, as political writer Ezra Klein so adroitly explains, about a normal person/platform and an abnormal one.

Please don't vote for that .... uh, .... person.
