What strikes me about this post is that the author seems to be unconcerned with the apparent and undeniable dangers of a Trump presidency.
While I’m not going to contest the author’s argument against the Obama administration’s handling of the fight against ISIL, at the very least, the administration hasn’t damaged anything. They’ve exercised restraint, something that has been lacking in US foreign policy for decades. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this seems to have been a kind of lynchpin in the author’s decision to vote for Trump.
I’m curious to hear more about the author’s situation with healthcare. What is the marketplace like in Virginia?
And to say nothing of the fact that the author seems unwilling to combat Trump’s rhetoric when it comes to the disabled, people of color, and women.
I’m very glad I read this post — a nice departure from all the noise about pandering to “rural white voters” from the past week.
