The staff here feels this article nailed the essential difference between the Presidential candidates. Everything else is minor in comparison.
One Presidential candidate has a deep seated desire to serve the public before herself. The other is the opposite. He has a fundamental characteristic which causes him to always and only put himself and his interests before those of of anyone else let alone the public interest.
That difference should be the driving force behind selection of public servants. The first criteria they are judged upon is their fundamental desire to serve the public. We can’t move on to other important decision making criteria in this election because we don’t have two candidates who meet this hurdle equally.
People who believe they have a legal duty to put self-interest before the public interest don’t belong in public service.
As a bonus, this article summed up the tax return issue perfectly as well.
Besides, these are personal tax returns we are talking about. There is no such thing as a “fiduciary duty” as a businessman to oneself. That, as we’ve said before, is called greed.
