Can Trump Win?

First of all, vote like your life depended on it -- because it does.

Let Colonel Schlichter put some information to you.

[The so-called #NeverTrump/#ProHillaryButLyingAbout it group] have not been persuaded, and they can do what they feel they must – I respect most of them and expect to join them for a big group hug starting Wednesday because we have many battles to fight regardless of the outcome. But I don’t need to hear from the ones who feel compelled to lecture those of us reluctantly voting for Trump, the posers who spit out words like "honor" and "courage" at people who are willing to do the hard and unpleasant thing necessary to save this country while they sit back, comfortable and smug. You can choose not to help defeat Hillary Clinton – or even actively assist her – but do'’t ever confuse holding to your principles with holding some sort of moral high ground over those of us who tried to stop her.

And she must be stopped. Everything Clinton comes in contact with is fouled and corrupted, and we cannot allow our country to fall into her wretched harpy claws. She turned a charity into a criminal racket. If her corrupt pal Obama was not going to pardon them – and he's totally going to pardon them – she would have turned a dozen of her aides into convicted felons. She’s even poisoned the already mortally ill press, compelling it to shed the objectivity it at least used to try to pretend it possessed and become her docile cheerleader. In doing so, we normals have been mobilized to detest the corrupt media as never before. Her legacy is a slime that smears everything she touches.


Win or lose, Clinton – who will likewise be pardoned by Faily McWorsethancarter – is going to go on to live a comfortable life, enjoying her tens of millions of graft proceeds, screaming incoherently at her staff, and numbing the pain of her rejection by her father and husband (and, hopefully, America) with tumbler after tumbler of chilled, soothing Crown Royal – oh, how it takes the pain away! But in her wake, as the Clintons always have, she'll leave a trail of smoldering debris and ruined lives not seen since the last time Godzilla wandered through Tokyo.

He then goes into specifics, but you'll have to pay the people who pay Schlicter with a (free) click.

So can Trump win? I don't think so. I thought to win, we'd need one big Black Swan event, which could have taken several forms:

1. A really killer Wikileak leak. No really killer ones lately. Wikileak is demolishing the media but the media isn't on the ballot.

2. Hillary "nearly stumbles" again, as the media claimed when the nation saw her buckle and have what sure looked like a seizure or a major neurological episode. This should never have been forgotten -- but the public tends to forget things rapidly, when the media isn't reminding them. And the media stopped talking about Hillary's health within 48 hours. We needed another episode to remind people.

3. A major piece of bad economic news. We've gotten plenty of bad economic news, but nothing big enough to break through to the public.

4. Another terrorist attack. No, I'm not hoping for this (as I'm not hoping for a bad economy, either); I'm just saying, the media does not want to talk about terrorism, because hillary doesn't want to talk about it, and the only way we would talk about it is after a terrorist incident.

5. That the polls are just wrong and missing millions of voters.

I have hoped for the last possibility enough times and seen those hopes dashed an equal number of times that I'm not very big on 5.

But I guess that's all we're left with now.

If this were the year 5 would finally come through for us, then this would be that year.

But 5 is pretty slim hope.

On the plus side -- and bear in mind, almost all polls look pretty bad for us right now -- one poll does put Trump within striking distance of Hillary in Pennsylvania, which would not necessarily win the election for Trump (he could still lose must-wins like Florida and North Carolina), but it sure would get him close to winning.

I don't know -- I have a very negative feeling about tomorrow.

But vote. Make your voice heard.

Might be your last time you're actually allowed to do so.

There is a nobility in the fight, even if the fight is lost. Even if all of your one-time allies desert you to join the enemy's army-- especially should that be the case.
