Twenty years ago, I was in severe pain. I needed a major operation. So I went to see two different surgeons.
The first guy was old (about the age I am now), boring, and told me exactly what he planned to do. He told me I’d have to actually have 2 operations six months apart.
The other surgeon had me first talk to a very attractive intern and then told me he could do the surgery in one go, probably laparoscopically, and I’d recover faster. He was younger, better looking, and more charismatic than the first surgeon.
I knew my regular doctor didn’t particularly like the second surgeon, but I figured it was just a personality thing. So I went with the second guy.
The second surgeon never intended to do the surgery laparoscopically. He never called and talked to my regular doctor, like I’d asked and he’d promised. (I found out about 2 minutes before they sedated me.) In the middle of the surgery, he decided he knew better than my regular doctor, and changed the procedure. When I complained after the surgery, he told me I should kiss the ground he walked on.
Six days after I left the hospital, I developed peritonitis. I nearly died and had to endure another four or five surgeries during the next week. Six months later, I had to have another surgery to complete the job. I stopped breathing and had to be revived.
My health wasn’t great before, but that one bad decision shattered it. I’m doing better now, but it has taken me twenty years of hard work.
Trump reminds me a lot of that second surgeon. Hillary reminds me more of the first one. (Who, by the way, hasn’t had any major complications with his surgeries.)
If you vote for Trump, you are making a decision that is going to affect your life, not just for the next 4-8 years, but possibly for the next several decades.
