When I was growing up, I was raised that politics wasn’t a public discussion. You didn’t make it a point to tell everyone who you were voting for and why every chance you got. You didn’t have a political discussion with a person– then turn around and make yet another very public announcement about your stand (and theirs). It would have stayed between the two. Even if you disagree.
I still hold onto much of this. I’m not sure I’ve ever publicly proclaimed my stand on who I was voting for. I’m not even sure I’ve ever discussed it after the elections. Not that I don’t have my own opinions, which I may share privately but I don’t debate them– nor do I make them public,
So, without divulging to much I wanted to share my thoughts– on both major candidates.
- Candidate who has bankrupt several businesses but is in a real possible place to run our entire country’s budget and finances.
- Candidate who has already pretty much been in office, it will be all the same again.
- Candidate who blatantly says prejudice things all the time, running a country already in divide– add to that the stand on various topics (ex. rape)
- Candidate who is actively under investigation for criminal activity while running for office, who will have access to much more information.
