For the sake of all women, I hope you made the right choice.
For the sake of our military, I hope you made the right choice.
For the sake of all races, all of the disabled, and the LGBTQ community, I hope you made the right choice.
For the sake of America, I really hope you made the right choice.
Donald Trump was elected president for 2016, leaving around half of America devastated and afraid.
We didn't expect much, with both candidates being less than America deserves, we really had to choose the lesser of two evils. With that, America was left divided on who that was and why. Who would make the better president? Who would further this country to be even more great than we ALREADY are.
Make America Great Again, my ass.
In my opinion, the obvious choice for me was Hillary. Poor Bernie, he really should have had a chance.
As a woman and someone who wants peace for this country, Trump has always scared me. In a country that is still striving for equality throughout, I believe that Trump was not the solution.
With being a woman, Trump has made me scared for my rights, and the rights of a future daughter. When he said that he would make abortion illegal with punishment to all woman, it blew my mind. I couldn't believe there was a man arrogant enough to tell me or any woman that she would be punished for choosing not to have a baby. You would think a man running for president of all people would understand over-population, women's' rights, or how many children are affected by abusive or negligent parents.
I've also seen him as a bully. A man who feels it's ok to mock the disabled. A man who believes we should build a wall to "protect" the country. A man who thinks he can treat women with disrespect and that is ok. He has been so focused on "crooked Hillary" that he has put more effort into attempting to incarcerate her, than his own election. We've campaigned with Obama against bullies, yet we elected one right into office.
Trump has some how been able to get quite the following during his campaign. As there are plenty of sane, great minded people who have their reasoning for choosing Trump, there is a great deal of close minded, hostile and arrogant followers. You know who I mean by this, the ones from a small town who think racism and bullying are still "cool." Look at a group of Trump supporters. How many of them are not well educated? How many of them still live in their home town with their parents? This is a good one, the ones who say democrats want everything for free, yet they were handed everything by their parents through high school and even after. How was that free, brand new car?
I could go on even more of rant and go into details but I won't. Trump is our president. America, you have made your choice.
Don't you dare say one bad thing about his decisions if you voted for him. You cannot take this back. Good or bad, he's with us for the next four years.
For the sake of our country, I hope he does well. I hope he moves past the racism, sexism, and bullying and actually makes good choices for America. This is it, I hope you're all right.
