I’m voting for America

I'm voting for the second amendment, for the police and law and order, for the military and veterans who fought and died for this country, for the American flag, for fair trade deals that protect American workers, for American manufacturing and cherished words “made in America.”

I’m voting for the right to speak my opinion without being censored or harassed, for secure borders, for the next U.S. Supreme Court justice, for the right to praise God, for every unborn soul the Democrats want to murder even up to the day before they are born, and for freedom and the American Dream.  

I'm not just voting for one person, I'm voting for the future of my country. I'm voting Trump.

The Wuhan virus exposed the United States’ dangerous dependence on China for pharmaceuticals, including 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of active ingredients needed to produce drugs. Biden loves China, Trump wants “made in the USA.”

I resent being called racist because I am White, or say, “All Lives Matter” or “Blue Lives Matter.” We voted a Black man into office twice, and now Oprah, loved by many Whites, says you are racist if White.  Today, everyone who is not liberal, including conservative persons of color, are labeled racist. Enough of this insane “everybody’s a racist” stuff. Before Obama, race relations were progressing, and then the “great uniter” started calling police stupid and thug Trayvon Martin the son he never had.

Anyone consider that negativity toward people of color is from attitudes and behaviors, and not skin color? Name one Black who was killed by a cop who wasn’t committing a crime. I have never had any racism toward anyone for the color of their skin, but I hate people like Sharpton and Jackson, who use racism to enrich themselves and tear this country apart. Democrats use it for votes. Many people of color, and guilt-driven Whites, need to change their attitude, and we will all get along better.  

As an American, I don’t like police condemnation or the anthem kneel. I despise violent protests and rampant criminal behavior. I think most Americans agree, and it is sad that some just vote their hate for Trump instead of the good of the country. This election isn’t about Trump, it is about our country.

Why would you vote for someone who has been in government for 47 years and not fixed anything, but now claims he knows what to do while not being able to put two sentences together? Why would you vote for a party who wants our borders wide open and everyone coming in getting free medical care? You OK with paying for that and destroying Medicare? The “Green New Deal” will raise taxes on everyone. Are you OK with no more hamburgers because cows fart and gasoline prices doubling for something so many scientists dispute?  

Biden and Bernie, both, admitted your taxes are going up. Oh, they say, only on the rich, but the rich have the loop holes and the middle class will pay as they always have. Biden says he will reverse Trump’s tax cuts, which increases everyone’s taxes. Want your taxes to go up, vote for Biden. Want another tax cut, vote for Trump.

Just because you’re Democrat doesn’t mean you have to vote Democrat. Once the Democratic Party was for working people — not anymore. They are about hate if you don’t agree with them.  

If you just want to live your life with government out of it as much as possible, vote Trump and Republicans. Want more regulations, higher taxes and more criminal riots and destruction? Vote Democrat.
