I’m sorry, Robert, but you’re flat wrong.

Hi Michael. I appreciate you taking the time to respond. It’s always interesting to hear opposing viewpoints. Obviously we disagree about some aspects of Hillary Clinton’s political record and primarily her potential as a president. I hope you are right and in ten years we look back and shudder with gratitude. On the other hand, if Trump is elected, I hope I’m right and we realize four years from now that not much has changed — other than a few Trump jokes added to the vernacular.

If I’m wrong about how the government works, you’ll want to take that up with the United States House of Representatives. Per their website: “Among other powers, the legislative branch makes all laws, declares war, regulates interstate and foreign commerce and controls taxing and spending policies” (http://www.house.gov/content/learn/branches_of_government/ accessed 13 Sep 2016). It’s not like politicians can’t be wrong — in fact, most of the time the opposite is true. Judging by what you’ve written in response to my article I think if anyone could get them to rewrite their description, you could.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply. Even if we disagree, I genuinely appreciate your thoughts.
