A Message for 2016 Voters (Educated or Not)

OK let me start of by saying this:

If you are going to vote for Gary Johnson or some other minority nominee you are utterly wasting your vote. Every vote that you take away from trump will allow Hillary to take the presidency easier. I’ve tried talking with some people about this and they always use the same couple of responses for their reasons such as:

1) is trump the end

2) trump is a racist or misogynistic or something other hater phobia thing

3) trump is completely out of his mind and unfit

Okay so let’s just say this in response:

1 and 3) Just because it’s someone you hate doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen. If that was the case any minority (blacks or LBGT’s or anything you can think of that’s been repressed) wouldn’t of had any legal uprisings and societal agreeance. You need to be a critical thinker and see all sides and all the facts before you make a judgement call. If you want to go off what you see in highlight reels from biased corporations or people then you aren’t doing your job as an active voter. You need to get unbiased facts (and any other such data required) to then make your decision. Don’t just ignore the little guys or the opposite side because you don’t want to hear the truth. It’s your job as an American voter to take heed to everything and make an unbiased decision to help better our country.

 

2) Trump in my mind isn’t sexist or homophobic or islamophobic or whatever you might throw at him. I’ve read and listened to his full debates and speeches (yes even though they are over an hour long each usually) and I can undoubtedly say he has had some moments that have been over exaggerated as “racist and …” but that shouldn’t mean anything to a critical thinker. If you don’t even know what you’re calling him don’t say it or blast it on social media. If you look at his political and religious beliefs then you know what kind of person he is. It’s that simple.

SIDE NOTE: I’LL BE PUTTING IN A LIST TO SHOW YOU GUYS THE COMPARISON OF TRUMP, HILLARY, AND JOHNSON.

 

Most of the people who talk to me are extremely opposing of my views and they can do that all they please. I remain a critical thinker and use that knowledge to the best of my ability. I hope they read this and see all sides instead of biased reportings on the internet.
