A choice between two flawed candidates

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out, according to English politician Thomas B. Macaulay. Both of our presidential candidates have serious character flaws that make them morally unfit to be President. One demeans citizens, especially women, and one is a chronic liar. Both seem to have a public persona, while saying and doing something else in private. The American people deserve better. We are now faced with a troubling dilemma as we vote. Who do we trust? Who do we believe? Are they capable of leading our nation during this difficult time? I will be doing some soul searching and a lot of praying. May God help us all!
