About five-plus years ago, Blaine Young was elected to the position of county commissioner and, shortly after, that to president of the commissioners. As most of us already know, shortly after his election he began to do a number of things in his position that may be considered unethical and immoral. At the next election, for county executive, Young lost the race based on his questionable activities while in office.
The reason that Young and his group were elected in the first place is that Frederick residents were fed up with the Democratic leadership in our country, state and county, and determined that Republican leadership would make everything better. Well, it didn’t, and we’re getting ready to do it again, but this time on a much larger scale with the possible election of Donald Trump as our president.
Trump is trying to do the same thing that Young did, and that is to convince us that he is the only person who can fix the problems that the current administration has caused, or at least those that he claims it has caused. The trouble now is that the Republican National Committee realizes there is a definite possibility Trump may win the GOP nomination and then the RNC will be forced, by law, to back him in the general election.
Everybody, including most GOP elected officials, knows that Trump is not qualified to be our president, based on his education, knowledge, experience, temperament and intelligence. So why is he in line to be the next Republican nominee to run for president of the USA? Frankly, like Young, Trump is only in it to build his brand and to make more money for himself. I hope readers consider this before they place their vote in the fall.
