US presidential election voters get to play King Solomon

After watching the three election debates (see videos below) and reading way too much news and analysis in this election cycle (voting date Nov 8, 2016) about the two main candidates (Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump), I think the voters get to play King Solomon.

I am not religious but in this Presidential election, Americans get to play the role of the King in Judgment of Solomon. The mothers are the two candidates. One of these “mothers” is ready and willing to destroy the foundation of US democracy by refusing to say whether she’ll accept election results. Quoting CNN,

Donald Trump on Wednesday refused to say he would accept the result of the presidential election if he loses to Hillary Clinton, raising the possibility of an extraordinary departure from principles that have underpinned American democracy for more than two centuries.

“I will look at it at the time,” Trump said when asked during the final presidential debate whether he would concede if he loses on November 8, following his claims that the election is “rigged” against him.

He added: “I will keep you in suspense.”

The comments at the Las Vegas showdown marked a stunning moment that has never been seen in the weeks before a modern presidential election. The stance threatens to cast doubt on one of the fundamental principles of American politics — the peaceful, undisputed transfer of power from one president to a successor who is recognized as legitimate after winning an election.
