Dark skies ahead… Normally I don’t make political posts. I usually sit back and see how everything turns out and silently cast my vote for the lesser of the two evils. But this time it’s different. The presumptive nominees of the Democrats and Republicans are not the ideal in my opinion.
Granted Clinton is a relatively safe choice, we know she will be most similar to Obama so we shouldn’t have any surprises. But the con side of that is just that: nothing much will change. I know everyone is saying she’s a woman and it could be a historical moment if she were elected President. Whoop-tee-doo! So she’s a woman. And? I don’t think it really makes a difference in the performance of the office. Yes it is historical but I never thought it would make any difference if the elected president was a woman or man, black or white, or whatever. As long as they can do the job and do it well, who cares if the president is a gay person with yellow skin from Hawaii?
Trump, on the other hand is dangerous. He wants to get rid of terrorism and finally make America great again. First of all America is already great. It has a few downfalls, but it’s still great. He wants to end terrorism but I don’t think it’ll be as easy as just being angry and sending all our troops and closing our borders and building a wall. Terrorism is horrible and the radicalized people out there need to go. But thinking that he’s going to be able to fight an idea is not going to be done in 4 or 8 years. It has to be an effort made by the whole, not just one man with an idea. Trump scares me. Sometimes he manages to make me laugh but I’m really rolling my eyes at him much more these days.
So what’s a voter to do? In the past I admit I’ve voted democrat. I’m not saying I don’t have republican tendencies but it just seems that the democrats had more of the same ideas. I know I would definitely not choose republican only because I don’t believe in everything Trump stands for. On the other hand, I’m not really a Clinton fan either. Her methods are not exactly great and well, she’s still a politician and everything seems to run at snail speed around these guys.
I’ve heard it enough and I’m sure you have too: “I’m voting for Trump because I can’t stand Hillary.” Or vice versa. Well don’t vote for another candidate just because you don’t like the other one. Just don’t vote! I think I’ve become less enthusiastic of “America’s vote” because of TV shows such as American Idol or Dancing With The Stars. I know it’s a horrible comparison but honestly these people need to make better choices.
Are you having conflicts choosing who to vote for?
