Is This Really Happening?

One of the things I have noticed recently is that the Clinton campaign is using all the technology available to it, and why not? I would think the Trump campaign is too.  As I have been studying this political cycle I have noticed a difference between the two camps. The democrats will cheat, and the republicans will play by the rules, maybe thinking the democrats will too. If that is the case, it’s naive of the republicans. Not that they should cheat too, but expect it and be ready to counter it. The thing is, how?

Do you try and expose your opponent’s cheating? Nowadays so much can be done electronically. How do you prove it, especially when the media is a big supporter of the Clinton campaign and will help them any way they can. This year there has been a lot of attention to Hillary’s time as secretary of state and how she handled her emails. It was on her own server, and her cell phone was unsecured. So it was outside of the government's jurisdiction.

During the DNC in Philadelphia, there were reports of hacks on the DNCs systems and leaks of embarrassing emails by democrat officials, resulting in the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the DNC chair post. And still there is talk of whether the Russians had anything to do with it. The thought being that they wanted Trump to win instead of Hillary.

Now there is a story of Trump’s campaign manager working for an undisclosed foreign lobbying interest. Pick your story:

As bad as Hillary is, can Trump have things look any worse? Can it be said he’s trying to throw the election for Hillary? I wonder. And we’ve still got about 80 days to go. This is the strangest election ever.
