Anyone who knows me knows I prefer to stay silent about my views on American government and politics. I really dislike politics in general because of the division it causes. Unfortunately, where there are people there are politics.
I’ve stayed silent too long.
This election is not a popularity contest. It should not matter if we have always been Democratic or Republican. At this point, what does matter is what these candidates stand for.
If you are a woman voting for Hillary Clinton because she’s a woman, please wake up. Is she a woman with your values? Do you really want her representing you as a woman?
Let’s face it, she has been under criminal investigation by the FBI for basically selling us out as a country. She’s behind the scenes making friends with countries she doesn’t need to be friends with, for no apparent reason except money. I don’t believe Hillary Clinton has America in her best interest. It sounds like her wallet may be more important to her than our country.
Now I realize the same could be said about Donald Trump and his wallet, but he’s not the one whose been being investigated.
If one of us had done what she has done, we would either be in prison or fired from our jobs, at a minimum. We wouldn’t be allowed to greet at a department store, if we had a criminal record or were under investigation.
We are allowing a woman who is in question with the FBI to run for the office of, and potentially become, the next President of our beloved country. The fact that they ever felt the need to investigate her is crazy. Even crazier, she somehow gets away with it. This goes against everything we believe as Americans, and should be against the law. Where is the justice in this? We have no choice but to stand up.
Would Donald Trump be my first choice if there were other options? Perhaps not. But in the situation we find ourselves, he’s the only option. Honestly voting independent in this election is basically choosing to throw your vote out. Do I believe he’s the answer to all of our problems? No. But I do believe Donald Trump has been surrounded by some wise counsel, a few people who will speak truth when needed. I don’t believe this of the other candidate.
We have to get out and vote. If you haven’t voted yet, please do. Not voting is a copout. Most people who aren’t voting are saying they don’t want to be responsible if later on they end up hating the person they voted for. What’s funny about that is, if you don’t vote, you’ll still be responsible. One way or the other, we all have responsibility in this.
We are being called to action this very minute.
If freedom is of any value, we must not let a person whose suspicious to the FBI be put in office to make major decisions for our country. This will affect our children and theirs, if we do. As with any other choice we make, there will be consequences. In this case, the consequences will not be good.
I’m not trying to stir the pot or upset everyone here. I just can’t stay silent. This is not how we roll as Americans. Again, this isn’t about popularity or being Democrat or Republican. This is about ONE NATION…UNDER GOD…UNDIVIDED…with FREEDOM… and JUSTICE… for ALL.
