November 8th. Election Day. A day that I look forward to every year. My little patriotic heart bursts with excitement because today, I get to have my hand in something that many people across the world do not. I have the honor and privilege of casting my vote to elect the President of the United States of America.
Today, I voted.
Today, I voted for America.
I'm a Christian, 2nd Amendment supporting, Republican, pro-life female who voted for Donald Trump.
By things that I have seen on my Facebook feed throughout the past few months, I know that the statement above will offend people. However, while I'm being frank, I don't care. We have become a country that is afraid to stand up for what we believe in and own their beliefs. Some people don't agree with me on anything, and THAT IS OKAY. Welcome to America where we are all entitled to believe in and support whatever we want. This is why voting rocks. By voting in the election, WE have the opportunity to vote for candidates who believe in and support the same things!
With that being said, Donald Trump was not my first pick for POTUS. Honestly, he was never my pick for POTUS. That is until it came down to two and I chose the someone that will support our military, fight for religious freedom, defend our constitutional rights, and support pro-life movements.
Hillary Clinton does not support the issues important to me. It is literally as simple as that.
Today, I voted for Donald Trump. Not because he represented my party. Not because he was the "lesser of two evils." I voted for Trump because he will support my issues and is the best candidate to represent me in the White House.
Something that is most important to me this election cycle is the fact that the next president will be responsible for selecting a slew of Supreme Court Justices. That is arguably THE MOST important part of this election. Regardless of how I feel about Trump, it is crucial for him to be in the White House because of the need for Republican blood in the Court. Republicans currently have control of the House and Senate. That's why this election is so crucial. If we lose that, Hillary is elected, and she chooses the justices, there is no hope for a Republican agenda, and the issues close to our hearts will be ignored.
The way our government works is like a big strategic game, and with this election, we need to play it well.
The election results will be monumental regardless of who wins. I know I speak for all Americans when I say that I hope the next President of the United States takes their job seriously and is ready to serve with the best of their ability when they take office and swear to, "faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
"I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life." -Ronald Reagan
