I wasn’t always into politics. I never thought my voice would be heard, especially in California. It’s not that I was afraid to speak up or that I shied away from confrontation it’s just that California is an overwhelmingly blue state. I’m surrounded by the 1% and most of them are liberals. Working in the entertainment industry you were either a liberal or you didn’t work so I never discussed politics. I barely discussed religion. It’s not because I was embarrassed of my political or religious beliefs but it’s because I wanted to continue working. I remember being on set and having to read my Bible off in the distance so no one could see what I was reading.
As the mainstream media continues to cover the sexual assault in Hollywood I can verify from personal experience that it is extremely common, accepted, and overlooked. Having been a victim in the industry myself I left after several years of hard work and dedication to my art. I started to pull my head out of my Hollywood bubble and see the world around me. I started to have a vast thirst for knowledge. I wanted to educate myself of matters such as how we can make this world a better place. I wanted to learn what my purpose for life was.
When I saw Donald Trump walk down the escalator of Trump Towers to announce he was running for President I knew in that moment what my life’s purpose was. It was almost like God was speaking to me at that very moment. I started campaigning and would campaign for him unofficially like so many others for the next 15 months. Facebook was the major platform for my campaigning where I would debate and try to prove my point. I would try and get people to listen but most didn’t think he had a chance to win. However, I knew like so many others of my #MAGA family that Donald Trump was going to be the 45th President of the United States. I lost friends and family members and I don’t regret that because my vote for Donald Trump was a selfless vote for the United States of America.
President Trump is not perfect, in fact when he makes a mistake it’s okay because he is not God. I don’t portray him to be God. But I portray him to be a human. A human with a heart that so many of you don’t see or don’t want to see. I followed Trump’s career for many years as did many of you. Rappers rapped about him, Democrats hung out with him and accepted his donations and he was a friend to many minorities. He was never called a racist and he never once behaved or did anything in a racist manner prior to running for president.
Donald Trump aligns with my Christian values and my political beliefs. I am pro-life however, I understand that it is a woman’s body and she can do what she wants with her body. I don’t understand why democrats shame republicans for their beliefs. Planned Parenthood receives enough donations to pay for amazing services and requested abortions. I don’t believe they should take the extra 4% from taxpayers to cover services such as abortions. I don’t want to defund planned parenthood but I don’t think my money should pay for services that are against my beliefs. That is why I voted for Donald Trump.
I want the United States of America to continue to have freedom of religion. I don’t need the Government to pray like I pray. I don’t need the government to lecture other Americans on my Christian faith but what I do need is my freedom to be a Christian. This freedom is freedom that is being lost in other parts of the world. This is not a freedom I will let slip away from America. That is why I voted for Donald Trump
Donald Trump is going to build the wall. I welcome immigration but for the same reason I lock my doors at night is the same reason I want a wall.. We need a better vetting process for who is immigrating into our country. There is nothing wrong with enforcing the immigration laws we have in place and protecting the safety of everyone. If you are for open borders then why don’t you take an immigrant family to live with you, no questions asked. Or how about a refugee, no questions asked? Would you do that? Because you can, you can sponsor a family/refugee and they can move in with you. You will fill out some forms, pay some fees, move them here and you will be financially and legally responsible for them for 10 years. You don’t need a law or open borders to do this. If this is something you want to do please do so. I encourage you! But just because this is something you want to do, don’t force me to let a stranger into my home. I’m not comfortable with that. The same way I wouldn’t be comfortable going into a hotel room with Harvey Weinstein. That is why I voted for Donald Trump.
We segregated in the 1960’s there is not one law today that promotes racial division or segregation of any kind so please stop saying that America is racist, that I’m racist, or that my children are racist….they are toddlers. Being called a white supremacist was something you rarely heard. Now, I’m being called one several times a day. I have never done anything racist in my life but you are judging me for my vote. You are judging me by the color of my skin. Doesn’t that make you racist? Republicans want to fix places like Detroit. Trump campaigned on it! I support fixing our inner cities. That is why I voted for Donald Trump.
I owned a corporation for over 15 years and I can tell you every year doing taxes, personal and business, was a nightmare. I applied for an extension every year. If you want to read about his tax reform I recommend informing yourself before bashing a program you know nothing about. I’m excited to simplify the tax code and make the government smaller. I know a lot of people are complaining about the corporate tax being lowered, this is a good thing for some many reasons but for the smaller corporations this is huge. If you have never owned a business then you won’t understand all the taxes that are paid. The licenses, the paperwork, the payroll, and the costs are massive and more times than not you can’t stay in business because you can’t afford to stay in business. Entrepreneurship is the heart of America. And I voted to keep it alive. That is why I voted for Donald Trump.
I believe in opening the state lines for healthcare. This will drive the costs down of insurance premiums. I want healthcare reform. I believe it is unconstitutional to make Americans pay for insurance or fine us if we don’t. Premiums are going up 200%, deductibles are through the galaxy and the cost of medicine alone is astronomically high. Oh, and when Obama said if you like your doctor you can keep him, he lied! That is why I voted for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has a no-nonsense attitude and it’s refreshing.. He’s not a politician and I love that! I am for the laws of the USA. I am for enforcing the laws not encouraging the criminals. He wants to rid the Earth of ISIS and so do I. He is tired of the people bending the rules and so am I. No one is above the law, not even Donald Trump. Trump is not a sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or the bigot people say he is. He wasn’t the perfect candidate, but he was the right candidate for the Republican party.
Did he say some reprehensible things that can’t be excused? Yes. Have you ever said something reprehensible? Believe it or not Trump wants to put America first and so do I. I am proud of my country. I am proud of my flag and you should be too. I don’t want to have to be politically correct anymore and I’m not sorry if you are offended. Why do you get to blame me for your feelings? Can’t you control them? I control mine. When someone is racist towards me I brush it off. When someone is sexist towards me I brush it off. When a liberal threatens to kill me and my family, I say nothing back. I will never understand how a liberal can call me all these things when I haven’t done any of them but they have. I often wonder maybe it’s because they are deflecting from their true feelings of themselves and other people.
We need to stop shaming and labeling someone just because they don’t understand or don’t like something. When did we become a country that had to like everything?!?! Maybe I don’t like people with green hair because I don’t like the color green. So what! Must you try to shame me and label me to make yourself feel better about your green hair? If you want your hair green it shouldn’t matter my opinion of your hair. You should be secure enough in your decisions to not need my approval. You should be secure enough not to shame me into approval. You don’t need to go into your “safe space” you will be ok. You are loved. You are accepted. You don’t need my approval or anyone else’s.
That is why I will vote for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
