I’m in a uniformed service and the President is my Commander in Chief. The best reference I have to Trump’s management style is the Apprentice, and I’ve wildly disagreed with his decisions there. I’ve found him erratic, impatient, unfair, biased, rude, and prone to snap judgments.
If he can so thoroughly disappoint me when handling extraordinarily trivial matters then it is hard for me to stomach the notion of him in charge of my country and being my boss. It is a situation that I’ve never wanted to find myself in.
Maybe it is all bluster and show. Maybe Trump as an actual boss and not a TV boss does things entirely differently. In that case I don’t feel like I can trust his public persona at all and I don’t know how the people could be sure of who they are electing. I would prefer a candidate who I can reasonably assume acts similarly publicly and privately.
That doesn’t mean I want Hillary in office, either. But I do feel I could trust her to be Hillary. She has an established persona, views, and track record that make her behavior more predictable. I don’t agree with all of her views, but I don’t expect her to be radical and dangerous, whereas I have no real idea what Trump will do and the possibilities frighten me.
It is quite possible I will not vote in this election. I just don’t know.
