Suppose for a moment that either Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson or our beloved first president of the United States, George Washington, were opposing Donald Trump in the current presidential campaign.

I can only wonder at the depths of the slanderous labels and verbal distortions that Trump would create to discredit their character. His recent barrage of offensive and groundless remarks against President Obama as the “founder of ISIS” is off the scale of reason and historical fact.

Those who support this type of flawed candidate might want to remember that winning isn’t everything – it is how you win that is everything.
