Election 2016

Today the blog is, more or less, dedicated to election 2016. In North Carolina (it might be like this everywhere) we can vote early so today is my day. I'm kind of ashamed by this, but I'm making it right so I'm coming clean. I am 45 years old and I will be casting my vote for the first time ever. I have been registered since I was very young and just never followed through. In my whole lifetime I don't think there has ever been a vote more important than this one.

Every since I first realized that Trump really was running I have been waiting for an AHA GOTCHA moment where he says this was all a joke. When he and Hillary were the last 2 standing is when I finally accepted this as a truth. This man has made a mockery of our country and our government and people are eating it up. I have been a Hillary supporter for years, but I have also been questioning her ethics of late. Every since Benghazi I don't know how to feel. What I do know is that Donald Trump is a narcissist, a misogynist, and a racist. I cannot sit back this time and wait to see what happens. If he gets the White House, and that thought truly terrifies me, it will not be because I didn't let my voice be heard.

Hillary has been a public servant her whole life. She has the brains, tact, and know how to run our country. Another point I always make, that people giggle at, is no matter what you think of Hillary, she has already run our country one time for 2 terms. While Bill was playing slap and tickle Hillary was pulling all the political strings behind the scenes. Throughout my adult life I have always seen Bill Clinton as the best president. In my adult life, he is the only president that didn't start a war. My family and I were thriving during his presidency and it all went to shit with Baby Bush trying to finish the war his Daddy started. All this is to say, Hillary has what it takes to lead our country our other choice is a bigoted jerk who is splitting our country apart rather than trying to unify it.

Many people think I'm delusional, but I have been saying for over a year I think he is the Anti-Christ. The way people blindly follow this man that is saying and doing all these horrible things is unfathomable to me. It's like Hitler all over again, but with 'Nukes. I am back in church and this is one of the things that pushed me back. I LOVE my church and always had intentions on going back, but I'd be lying if I said this wasn't one of the main motivators. Being on my knees in church praying for our country and the salvation of me and mine has been giving me solace. I'm so scared for us all. My Mother and I are voting today and I'll take pictures afterward. WE ARE WITH HER.
