There are only a few days left before the long national nightmare of the 2016 presidential election is over. This campaign has been unlike anyone I have ever covered, not only because of the venom between the candidates, but the venom between and within each party. I have friends who won’t talk to me because I refused to be never trump. And for the most part, the level of the political dialog has been below the sewer. Here’s something I haven’t said since I reached puberty, but thanks to this political campaign I am sick and tired of hearing about sex.
Despite the tenor of the campaign, on November 8th I will be going to my voting location and casting my ballot as I have every year since my 18th birthday. On the line for President, I will be casting my vote for Donald Trump and I urge you to do the same. My vote is not a result of Trump’s party affiliation but because I truly believe he is the best candidate to shape the future of America.
Below are ten of the reasons why I feel strongly about about voting for Donald Trump and why I urge you to vote for Donald Trump as well.
1) Supreme Court: At least one and possibly up to three or four Supreme Court justices will be replaced during the next four years. Trump has provided a list of judges that he will select from. All of them are judges who will used the Constitution as their guide rather than trying to legislate from the bench. Since 1970 the average time a judge sits on our nation’s highest court is 26 years. That’s 26 years for a liberal court to lock in Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders (like Illegal Immigration) as well as any unconstitutional orders that Hillary Clinton would come up with. Say goodbye to the Second Amendment — Clinton already said she will use executive orders to limit gun ownership. As for the First Amendment protections, with a liberal court Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the poor would have lost their religious freedom, and the IRS would have been justified to target tea party groups.
2) Obamacare: It’s an easy choice. Trump wants to eliminate Obamacare and substitute free market solutions. Clinton wants single-payer. Single-payer healthcare is wrong for so many reasons, the biggest of which is that healthcare becomes a commodity and even more than in Obamacare the government controls what medical procedures are possible. The VA is a single payer system and we’ve seen what has happened to the VA in recent years — like the systems in Canada and other single-payer programs there are horrible waits to receive treatment (that’s why those who can afford come to the U.S. for treatment). The bottom line about single-payer is the conflict in goals. The government wants to manage costs, the patients want to get healthy…
