Hillary's Daisy Girl Ad


  Hillary Clinton keeps running an ad talking about how unstable that Donald Trump is and that he can't be trusted with the nuclear codes. Lyndon Johnson successfully branded Barry Goldwater as unstable with his famous commercial of a little girl picking the petals off of a daisy while a mans voice was counting down in the background. The girl looks up as she is being obliterated by a nuclear explosion. The country would not be in the terrible shape that it is now if Goldwater had been elected. His national defense policy was much like Reagan's. Peace through strength. The Dem's tried to paint Reagan as unstable but it didn't work in his case. Like Reagan, Goldwater would not have led us into a nuclear war. He would not have led us into the quagmire of Vietnam. Finally there would have been no War on Poverty. The benefit of a Goldwater win would have been no counterculture movement and no rise of the radical left. No Barack Obama and no Hillary Clinton. If Trump does get elected, and tries to use our nuclear weapons, there is a good chance they wont work. We can thank every president from George H.W. Bush to the clown that is president now. The testing of nuclear weapons ended in 1992. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that our nuclear forces are in terrible shape. If Hillary Clinton is elected the deterioration of our nuclear forces will continue in the face of a rising nuclear threat from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, and the possible nuclear proliferation to Islamic terrorist groups. Trump may be unstable but I will take my chances. I know that the continued weakening of our nuclear forces in the face of such threats endangers the lives of my children and grandchildren. I will take the chance that Trump will begin the long process of strengthening our national defenses. That may not make us great again but it will make us stronger and safer.
