In an Emotional “Hot-Button-Hitting” Presidential Race, How Much Weight Does Policy Carry?

This American presidential election, is like going down a river’s rapid. Emotions is all over the place.

Like take Hillary.

I have long noted all the talk about Hillary, on the issue that she is “Not Inspirational” & today on twitter & I just saw pictures of a group of Hillary supporter holding singes saying Hillary “Inspire” them.

Still the question perplexed me, so I went to research Google on “Hillary & Inspiration” and articles came up, some articles are about how the younger people are not inspired by Hillary seeing her as like an elder women relatives & other touched on misogamy, namely, men who feel alienated from Hillary, because Hillary is running for President, a position of power & so often, being more about men.

After reading a few articles on Hillary on the subject of “Inspiration” I went for coffee & thought about the subject for quite a while, & I asked myself, does Hillary inspire me? & if she does, what does Hillary inspire in me?

Quite surprisingly, the answer came quite quickly for me & the answer is that “Yes, Hillary Inspires Me & makes me think of the emotion Love”. I mean, there it is all over, like 100s of pictures, of Hillary hugging children, older people, younger people and like these is so many pictures out there, of Hillary, doing something, that shows love.

Realizing that answer came easily, but I am a guy in my 50s & many say I quite together & cutting-edge, but saying Hillary “Inspire Love” does not come easy & when speaking of love, love carries with it, “Great Responsibility” like, because there is no other emotion more powerful than “Love” & so how one taps into this highly powerful emotion “Love” is critical.

Apart from emotions, about this American Presidential election, there is also intellectual considerations and policy & these policies, often grows out of emotions, of what issues, the Presidential candidates cares about.

And here, anyone who has been following the news, will see a host of “Policy Announcement” from Hillary, from tech to economy to national security, and other, like education, human rights, there have been many from Hillary.

Bernie & Trump, both like Hillary, have also invested greatly in emotions, in this Presidential race.

However, un-like Hillary’s love, Bernie & Trump have “Inspired Anger & Hate” in many towards this and that, that is at the target of their animosity and seen as enemy. For example, to Bernie, the enemy and target of hate is Wall Street & to Trump, it is minority and anything against White being back in total control of America.

But for Bernie & Trump, for some reasons, there is not much from them, on policy announcement, mostly, just statement, of what is wrong, but not much, when it comes to solutions. Bernie basically says, fix Wall Street & Politics and Trump basically says, get rid of immigrants. But apart from those general statements, not much else.

& so since emotions, is playing a key role in this American Presidential election, I just want to “Identify” some characteristics of “Love, Anger & Hate” for my followers:

Anger: Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.

Hate: Hatred is a deep and emotional extreme dislike. It can be directed against individuals, groups, entities, objects, behaviors or ideas. Hatred is often associated with feelings of anger, disgust and a disposition towards hostility) Love:

Love: Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love my mother”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment. It can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection—”the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another” It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.

There mostly “Three Emotions” Americans placing in this Presidential election, again “Love, Anger & Hate” so choose what u invest well
