Between Barack and a Hard Place

As the upcoming elections draw nigh, only one week away,  I am resigned to the fact that I have no one to vote for (unless I write in a candidate-say, my D. H.  I myself respectfully decline to run at this time...).

There is no way I will vote for the incumbent. Except for partially funding the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system that has prevented hundreds of casualties from hundreds of missiles launched from Gaza--funding it with conditions, however--our president has shown a disdain for Israel and her leaders such as has not been seen before by an American president.  His lack of protection for the Embassy personnel in Benghazi  when desperately requested before the September 11th attack which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, as well as his lame, ineffectual and embarrassing essentially non-response after the attack--saying that it was caused by a spontaneous protest against a "vile, disgusting video" condemning Mohammad, apologizing--again--to the world, especially to Islamist terrorists, indicate his frightening weakness in foreign policy, and his proclivity towards appeasing terrorists and condoning terrorism. This is not what I want to see in an American president.

And on the other side of the aisle, we have a candidate who purportedly supports Israel, but is mum on moving the U. S. Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, and not a word about releasing Jonathan Pollard from prison--from either candidate.  In addition, the Republican candidate has stated so many falsehoods-as has the Democratic candidate as well, too numerous to repeat on this blog (it's late, and I'm tired. Just take yourself to Fact Check to see the lists), and he has changed his tune so often during his campaign that your guess is as good as mine as to what he actually will do if he gets into office, whether it regards repealing Roe v. Wade (which I am against) or privatizing Social Security (likewise).

As far as I am concerned, we don't have a viable candidate for president on either side of the aisle.

So in the end, I am voting for Israel.  Because a vote for Israel--that is, a president who supports Israel in all ways, among them: declaring Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel, declaring a one-state solution: Israel, the only Jewish State, with Jordan as Palestine--which it is, and always has been; condemning terrorism in all its forms, including those hundreds of missile attacks from Gaza--and backing those words up with deeds--is a vote for freedom and truth, and what the United States of America has stood for for 236 years.

May the best man win...
