Yes, It Really Happened: Trump Triumphs & Clinton Concedes

I’ve spent the last several days trying to take everything in. To say I was shocked at the election results on Tuesday night would be a gross understatement.

I’m a 22-Year-Old Female Republican Voting for Evan McMullin

I’ve been against Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency from day one. In fact, I haven’t like the Donald for years. Before the billionaire businessman formally launched his campaign June 16, 2015, I was a vocal opponent. Of the 17 candidates who ran for the Republican nomination, I would’ve proudly supported at least 8-10 of them. But Trump’s vile rhetoric, personal attacks, and lack of … Continue reading I’m a 22-Year-Old Female Republican Voting for Evan McMullin

Condescending Conservatism: The Trump Method

Do me a favor. Think of a time when you were wrong about something and someone was trying to explain to you why you were wrong. There are several different ways that people can go about correcting someone so that they’ll learn from a mistake. In this situation, one of two things can happen.

What Being #NeverTrump Has Taught Me About the GOP

I’ve always supported the Republican. In 2008, I was only 14-years-old, but I supported McCain-Palin because they upholded conservative values. When I turned 18-years-old as primary season of the 2012 election kicked off, I was excited to give my first vote to Mitt Romney. Throughout off-year elections, I’ve consistently supported Republicans. As 2016 dawned, I was a fan of Rand Paul, Scott Walker, and Marco Rubio. I openly … Continue reading What Being #NeverTrump Has Taught Me About the GOP

From skewed thinking that all black men are threats to people who claim all muslims love ISIS, … Continue reading My Heart Aches for Our Nation
