I’ve tried to not really voice my opinion on the current political divide going on in my country. It’s just my opinion after all. It only matters to me and I don’t want my feelings to anger other people. Having said all that, this is my journal and I can say what I want in MY JOURNAl. So here it goes.
I was born in 1981. There have been 6 presidents since I have been born (Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Obama, and now Donald Trump). I remember my parents being worried about some of the past presidents because of supposed policies to be made that would effect their jobs, health care, etc. My parents need not have worried. They did not get laid off or lose anything substantial. Infact, from president to president our lives did not change much at all.
I’m not terribly big on Donald Trump, but to be perfectly honest and really put my thoughts out there… I despise Hillary Clinton. I would love to break the gender barrier and elect the first woman president in the United States, but the thing is, She’s the wrong woman for the job. She sides with big corporations and her puppet strings are being pulled by Monsanto (a company I loathe as it is damaging our natural resources). She’s shady as fuck and I do believe she’d sell out her country for some big bucks. Politically she changes her tune to pander to feminist and minorities. She’s out of touch with a large group of Americans. I truly believe there is a trail of dead bodies in her political wake. This woman has blood on her hands.
Donald Trump now, yeah he’s something else. I like his stance on illegal immigrants. You wanna live in this country? That’s great. DO IT THE LEGAL WAY just like every one else. Yes my ancestors were immigrants too, but they got their citizenship by sticking to the rules!!! I have a driver’s license, a social security card, everything so that my government tracks me and knows what car I drive, where I live, and what I spend my money on. Whatever. That’s the price you pay for living on the grid and being a part of society.
The short and skinny is that Donald Trump, no matter how much you hate him, won the damn election. Be fair. Give him his 4 years. He starts pulling stuff – we can always impeach him (although when we impeached Bill Clinton and it didn’t do squat). Woman will still have rights!!! We can still get jobs. We can still vote. We can still buy guns if we please. We can take self defense classes. Whatever. The oyster is ours for the taking! Donald Trump really isn’t going to change our every day lives.
So give him a freaking chance. Stop whining.
