With the election only a month away, I have studied the issues and prayed about my vote. I then realized there is only one way that is right for me and my family. As a Christian, I feel I have a responsibility to vote and let my voice be heard.
First, I would like to address the words Trump said on the leaked tape. I do not condone his words about women nor think they are acceptable in any way. As a mother and grandmother of girls, his words disgust me. However, I cannot condone Bill Clinton’s actions against women or Hillary’s attempts to ruin these women’s lives. She states she is an advocate for women and children but her actions decimate her words. When she laughed about getting the child rapist out of jail, I could not imagine the horror the 12 year old girl and her family felt.
I admit I do not find the characters of our choices admirable. Both candidates have said and done disgusting and appalling things in the course of their campaigns. This election is not about characters but so much more—our way of life. Sexism and racism are running rampant in our country today and the government is fueling the fire with groups like Black Lives Matter creating havoc around the country. Police have been ostracized and treated like the enemy from our president on down through the ranks of elected officials across the country. I agree Black Lives do matter but so do Blue Lives and everyone’s lives.
Our media is not reporting the new. It has taken it upon itself to monitor what we see and hear. There is no such thing as true objective reporting anymore. Our media lies to us, our president lies to us, and Hillary lies to us and then lies about her lies to cover them up. Who can we trust for the news anymore?
Now I want to tell you why I am voting for Trump based on the issues we are facing today.
First, our Economic Stability is at risk. Hillary has promised so many things that sound good-too good. I have always heard that is something sounds too good to be true it usually is. Sure Trump did not pay taxes but he used a legal loophole—the same loophole Hillary Clinton did. Trump is a business man that knows how to run a business. If a worker did not do a satisfactory job, he wasn’t paid. Trump did not accumulate his wealth by selling favors to rich influential friends. He worked and built real estate.
The second issue I would like to address is our National Security. I, for one, do not want open borders. That is not to say I do not want immigrants coming to my country. Many have come here to make a better life for their families and have followed legal channels to become citizens. They were able to assimilate into our culture and have managed to make a good life here. I am talking about the illegals who have come here and committed crimes against our citizens. Many have been deported once and sometimes more than once. I am talking about Muslims that come over here and refuse to assimilate into our culture insisting America cater to their culture. Our Constitution is our law of the land—not Sharia law. I find it very offensive that schools have kicked God out but are teaching Islam. Our country was founded and established on Judeo-Christian values and should remain Judeo-Christian. Our Constitution affords citizens with the second amendment—the right to carry guns. Hillary wants to take guns from citizens. She says that will make us safer. Friends, if we give up our guns do you think criminals will give up theirs? No, they will always find ways to get them. The only objective this will accomplish will be to leave us defenseless. Criminals do not care about laws. Simply put, that is why they are called CRIMINALS. Trump wants to protect Americans. He wants to do what is right for this country.
Third, I would like to talk about Pro-Life. I believe that God is the creator of life and no one has the right to play God and decide that a child’s life is not important. Murder is murder whether it is in the womb or not. Hillary believes that a child does not have constitutional rights even minutes before it is born. If she believes that, what is stopping her from declaring that senior citizens don’t have constitutional rights either.
Finally, I would like to discuss the Supreme Court. Whoever is elected will appoint 5 justices. These people will have influence ever after the president leaves office. Hillary did not say she wanted a supreme court that would uphold the constitution. Rather, she said she wanted a supreme court that would further the liberal agenda on same sex marriage and abortion. She has already said that “Christians will have to change their beliefs on these issues in order to follow the laws and policies.” Is that who we want in the White House? Not me. I will not abandon my faith because the government tries to tell me that it interferes with the law. My God is the ruler of my life and He will always be the ruler of my life.
Friends, I urge you to do your own research and vote your conscience. I am not telling you who to vote for. But do not let the liberal media influence your vote. Remember, all it takes for evil to spread is for good men to do nothing. I urge you to do your part to stop this spread of evil. As a Christian, don’t stay home on election. We have a duty and must not neglect it.
