I voted for Trump.
I would like to thank you for this amazing article. I have some liberal friends who have started leaning toward this “extremist-y” side of things. One even saying how the Democrats are better than Republicans because the Democrats are the party of tolerant progressives and the Republicans are a bunch of rich uncultured white people who only care about money. But of course that’s not automatically true, cause you can’t blanket statement people like that. Personally I don’t identify as a Republican, I don’t like to consider myself to be affiliated with any political party, but I do consider myself a conservative.
I especially like the line about protesting against democracy. I’ve often considered why people are protesting the presidency and thought “Isn’t this how democracy is supposed to work? You’re not gonna win every time. Plus you’ve got another shot in four years.” To clarify, I don’t mind protests. I think it’s a useful tool, and even necessary in some cases.
I’ve never really talked much about the protests for women’s rights that happened recently where some people were wearing vaginas on their heads. Every time people started talking about it I wouldn’t join the conversation because I didn’t understand what the fuss was about, and I didn’t want to make a scene considering I’m one of the only conservatives in the music department at my university. But it did somehow come up while I was at church, and my friend agreed with me. She said “Yeah, I don’t know what they’re protesting to be honest. Personally I’ve never felt like I was oppressed in any way.” I do acknowledge that some people do feel oppressed and I don’t discredit what they feel is real to them. If they feel oppressed then they feel oppressed, even if I may not know what it is.
Anyways, again, great article. I can’t thank you enough for expressing your opinion. More people need to see this. I don’t agree with everything in the article, but the main points I do. Keep being you man.
