My Political Thoughts.
I’m not a political person, I’m just a person who is interested in politics, not the other way around. In the great state of New York where I reside, I’m a registered Democrat. That’s okay, I suppose. But my current viewpoints have changed.
I must admit I first got interested in politics, especially the bid for the presidential election when the Obama and Biden ticket came in 2008. I was only a freshman in high school. It’s been eight years since then, and I’m done with both high school and college.
Somehow, I’m not sure when but my current stance changed. I’ve became a Republican over the years. I’m still registered Democrat, but that is to say, somehow my stances on the current issues facing our country have evolved, as I have gotten older and learned more about the future of America and I’ve become aligned with the party I once disgusted, to being one of them. Hey, if you can’t beat them, join them, right?
I’ve never been one to relinquish or study politics. I try to keep out of that stuff, because nothing good ever comes out of it. Different people have different thoughts on how the issues should and could be solved. That’s okay.
I first got interested in Donald Trump when he first announced his bid for the presidential. For some reason, I like many, thought this was a joke. Based on his experience, his past, and how he’s been treated, we all didn’t think he was serious. However, I watched every rally, every debate, and was astounded on his stance.
A lot of people think that just because I support Donald Trump that I support the demonization of woman, vulgar language, racism, bigotry, etc. But using that logic, then I suppose supporters of Hillary Clinton support lying, mishandling of confidential information, having a private and public persona, getting paid to do certain acts, etc. The list goes on.
This election was never about politics, it was about personality. We don’t choose party official leaders because of issues. Who really knows their candidate as much as they should? We choose the candidate that we best feel will put the country in the right direction.
With that being said, I am a closeted trump supporter. I guess that makes me a hypocrite, because I should be able to confide in others who I am voting for, and I must admit, I felt ashamed telling anyone for a long time I supported the now current president elect. The media, supporters of Hillary, and my friends all made fun of me. They told me that my views were stupid.
I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m excited at the outcome, and how the race came out.
Some people say that Hillary deserved to win. To those people I say that America is a beautiful country and no job is too deserving for a person. Every one is qualified and has a fair shot at any job.
I am a trump supporter.
I guess now I know how closeted gay people feel when they tell the world they are coming out.
That’s all. Tune in next time…
