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. Like the vast majority of the media, politicos and the country as a whole, I truly believed that Hillary Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States. Boy were we wrong. The results haven’t fully sunk … Continue reading Yes, It Really Happened: Trump Triumphs & Clinton Concedes
This election cycle stinks. There are two choices and they are both corrupt, seem to be filled with hate, and have deplorable lifestyles that do not represent myself, nor America. But, still, my favorite day of the year is election day. This is because election day is the day where every American over the age of 18 is allowed to go to the polls and … Continue reading Why I am Voting My Conscience this November
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
“I’m conservative, but I’m not a nut about it.” –President George H.W. Bush I don’t know about you, but I constantly have to remind myself that not everyone loves politics as much as I do. People have better things to do. They have more important things to worry about; things that, frankly, the current two candidates haven’t been addressing. They don’t watch 3 hours of … Continue reading Let’s Never Do This Again
This election cycle has been anything but conventional. Long time political strategists have been confounded with seismic voting shifts changing the very landscape of traditional patterns. There are several factors causing such a shift. For one, a new and less institutionalized group of young millennials will participate in the process for the first time. This block of voters are less beholden to the two party system … Continue reading Could a Third Party Candidate Block the Path to 270?
It wasn’t by choice or his own revelation, but you’ve probably heard the story that recently circulated about President George H.W. Bush. At a “private” event for his charitable foundation, 41 was taking photos in a meet-and-greet line. One his foundation members snapped a picture and posted it with a caption that rocked the news cycle: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!” The … Continue reading Is George H.W. Bush the Flood Gatekeeper?
Let’s call it like we see it: this has been an awful, no-good, terrible week for Hillary Clinton and her campaign. Everything that could have gone wrong has done so. First of all, Mr. Trump found a little bit of discipline; actually, Kellyanne Conway found it for him. Second, the issue of Hillary’s health has flared up in a big way. Third, a tightening of … Continue reading Can Trump Win?
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. The person doing the correcting can calmly and kindly explain the right … Continue reading Condescending Conservatism: The Trump Method
