the election! we're seeing it everywhere. and if you're anything like me, you seek out information daily on the happenings of DC. and as far as politics go, this past year has been the most stressful, anxious, angry, and ecstatic that i've ever endured!
as far as my political stance/choice.. mr. trump has my vote! not ashamed and never will be. i voted for him in the primaries for the gop candidate and i happily voted for him again to be our next potus!
the republican party started off with 17 presidential candidates. seventeen! and i will admit, i thought donald trump was a freakin' joke when he chose to run. i really think my mouth dropped open. but the more he talked, the more i listened. and he came out on top of everyone. because america believed in him and voted for him.
he's not perfect. we're not electing him to be pope. and we as a nation sure as hell aren't perfect either. but i believe with everything i've got, he can help us more than just about anyone right now. and no, i don't think he's the "lesser of two evils". i think he's the freakin' guy who will get shit done. not being a politician is probably his biggest asset (i mean, i guess he is now, but you know what i mean).
my blog isn't a political blog, so i'm not going to rattle off pages and pages of reasons why i think he's best.
but what i will say is this: i'm a lover of the united states constitution, the u.s. supreme court and other federal courts make up the judicial branch which dissects laws to make sure they don't violate the said constitution, the president appoints those judges. and with vacancies approaching (up to 4!) in that court, we need a president who will appoint justices who truly pledge their allegiance to the united states of america.
so here i am, in utah - salt lake city, supporting my candidate at the mike pence (vp) rally! i went alone and i made some buddies while in line.
you guys, i loved it! the best atmosphere, the best people, just the best. there were about 1,300 people inside the place we were at. about another 1,000 didn't make it inside. and about half of all those people were women. and this was just the vice-presidential candidate speaking on behalf of the presidential candidate!
and if you don't think the media has any negative influence, the local news reported that there were "hundreds" of people there. and focused mainly on the back of the line (which was around the freakin' corner!) and the 2 protesters out front. keep up the good work, utah news. not.
anyways. stop bitching, go vote and go trump!
