If you know me in any significant capacity, you know I’m voting for Trump. But in an election when the right is so at odds about one another, I was interested in how other young conservatives would be voting. More specifically, I was interested in what more hardline conservatives had to say, because quite frankly their opinions carry more weight to me than your average Paul Ryan republican (no offense, sorry, but it’s true). So I looked no further than the women of the Ted Cruz campaign; many of whom have already been featured on my blog because they’re so perfect.
Trump is a big-government guy, and I’m a limited government kind of girl. I’m supposed to put my faith in one individual to fix all the problems of this country, just as he has said time and time again, when it’s not meant to be that way. I do not feel like Trump accurately portrays my values and principles as a conservative, and maybe that’s because he’s not a politician. He hasn’t had much practice in debating, let alone being in the public eye as a politician. He’s not polished or as quick as others are. And that may be a good thing.
I have not yet been able to decide if I will be voting for Trump or not. One minute I say I am, and the next minute I change my mind. My absentee ballot will get to me any day now and when it does that is when I will make my decision. I have to decide whether I will go with what I believe to be the wild card. I don’t know what to expect from him, which may be a good thing. With Hillary I know what we will get: another four to eight years of Obama, which I really don’t want. But with Trump, if I do choose to vote for him, at least I will be able to hold on to the hope that because he isn’t a part of the establishment or even a politician, that he can be guided by and learn from true conservatives. I can have hope that he will make decisions, particularly in terms of Supreme Court nominations and ISIS, that real conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee would make if they were President.
I’m supporting trump first and foremost because he is the Republican Nominee. I’m supporting Trump because he isn’t afraid to say or do what is best for America. He doesn’t owe anyone anything and will always stand up for what’s right even if people disagree. Trump will keep the government out of my life, get rid of unnecessary regulations that hurt the private sector, make sure all classes can thrive on their means and provide a stronger country for my family. I’m voting for Trump because America cannot afford another Clinton presidency. Hillary Clinton is the worst candidate ever to run for president and I’m not just going to vote for her because she’s a “woman”. The bureaucratic establishment in DC that is Hillary Clinton is detached from the American people. Trump is the only one to bring it back. American needs to think about America again.
Ever since I went to the voting booth with my father for the Bush v Kerry election at the age of 4 years old, I have been very excited to vote in my first presidential election. I can honestly say that it was never a thought of mine that I would not be able to support my party’s nominee. If people such as Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, even “low energy” Jeb Bush were the nominees, it would have been an easy decision for who to vote for. Unfortunately, this 2016 election has been one for the books and for some disastrous reason, Donald Trump was named the GOP’s nominee for President of the United States. I absolutely think that Trump does not represent my party in the way I would have hoped. I truly believe Donald Trump is pushing the GOP back further and further every speech he gives.
If Trump wins the election, it will be the end of the Republican party people spent years and years building up and making stronger. People from all different communities have never felt more alienated by one party’s candidate before. I do not believe Trump is the hateful bigot, racist, and sexist man the media makes him seem like. I do, however, think he is an extremely ignorant man who constantly makes crude and off color comments. I absolutely do not want the President of the country that I love and have great pride in to make statements such as, “Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.” Even if that was just “locker room talk,” it’s inexcusable and just plain disgusting. I will not be able to put my support behind Donald J. Trump and will just have to leave the decision up to the will of the people to decide who they want our Commander in Chief to be for the next 4 years and pray the damage done by either candidate is not undoable.
I am a twenty year old, female college student voting for Donald J. Trump. This isn’t an oxymoron. I study English. It is a rather liberal department of my college. Over the past two years of my undergraduate career, I have wasted too much time debating with social justice warriors over the rights of gays, blacks, Satanists, women, chickens, cows, corn, UFO’s and plants. Meanwhile our national debt is approaching $20 trillion, millions of illegal aliens are not paying taxes, and ISIS is becoming a global hegemony. Social issues have become the biggest distraction to our nations true concerns. I am not a bigot. I absolutely believe that everyone deserves an equal opportunity and equal rights. At this point I do not really care about the minor details of the majority of social issues. I would rather the liberals win those small battles, so that we can finally confront and win the true war our nation has at hand. Trump gets this, Hillary doesn’t. And if we are being brutally honest, Jill Stein, Gary Johnson and whomever else American dreamers are planning on writing in are hopeless candidates.
