Trump Is Only Hope
Can you accept the status quo for 4 or 8 more years? Or vote for the crazy guy who says he'll fix it?

The Fresno Bee Editorial Board listened to Donald Trump's speech at Selland Arena and decided he's unfit to be President. "It’s difficult to imagine a presidential nominee giving a more rambling, disjointed, egocentric, fact-free speech than likely Republican standard-bearer Donald Trump served up Friday morning at his rally in Fresno."
You can read the full editorial below. The problem for Valley farmers is that Trump is their only hope. If California water policy isn't solved soon there will be no future for farming in this Valley. Ask yourself how long you can go on with current policy.
Donald Trump may or may not become a good or great President. But, we do know this: he's the only one who says he'll fix the problem. What needs to be done? The Endangered Species Act needs to be amended. All Democrats including our current U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, and the probable next Senator Kamala Harris say it's untouchable. If it isn't fixed the West Side is doomed. The disastrous San Joaquin River Restoration program needs to be fixed. There are ways to do it, but nothing gets done with our Senators or current administration.
There is little hope of fixing either of these with Bernie or Hillary. What's a farmer to do? Vote for what the Bee calls the sane candidates who will do nothing to solve our problem? Can you accept the status quo for 4 or 8 more years? Or vote for the crazy guy who says he'll fix it? What choice do we have?
