Why I’ve Decided to Vote for Trump

Those of you who know me and follow my political commentary know that I am a reluctant Trump supporter who adamantly opposes his nomination by the Republican Party in 2016 and for sometime afterward considered myself a political orphan. There is much about President Trumps personality, character, and leadership that are still very difficult for me but there are also many concrete areas of governance I have supported. For a time I considered myself a Never Trumper and might have continued that way were it not for the fact that I don't particular like putting myself into a box like saying "never." I am to the right of Trump on how he has handled COVID but I’ve been grateful that he was restrained in the exercise of federal power And allowed federalism to work — even when it worked poorly — it takes commitment to divided powers to do that.

I could write an entire blog post about what I have liked and haven’t liked about Trump’s administration, but it wouldn’t be that unusual. There has been no president in my lifetime that I have been in agreement with on every area of policy, leadership, or style. So these details wouldn’t be a major factor in shifting my choice about whether or not to vote for Trump this November. (I didn’t vote for him in the last election, the first time I wasn't completely loyal to the Republican Party.) Nothing material has changed about Trump, you could say that one his strengths is that he is who he is with no pretense.

What has changed? Why have I finally chosen to vote for President Trump despite all of my previous objections and his continued weaknesses as a leader? Well, in case you’ve been asleep these last six months, it shouldn’t surprise you that some verily unprecedented events have put our American future in serious peril. 

The way mostly Democrat leadership and the leftist media have leveraged COVID politically and the widespread propaganda that is on full display if you done your homework at all should in and of itself be enough to create great alarm about what Democrats are up too, but it is only the tip of iceberg when you look at the way years of leftist ideologies are coming together to produce the extreme civil unrest and chilling cancel culture and censorship we are seeing across the US before our eyes.

BLM, the organization, is a Neo-Marxist movement — the movement is not about black lives... pure and simple it’s a Marxist cultural revolution that exploits racial and socioeconomic divisions to foment chaos, violence, and terror for political ends; the aim is the destruction of the American Republic. This makes the BLM organization VERY different than the true sentiment that “black lives matter!”

The Democrat party and leftist media — who act as their propaganda machine — are the establishment power that has embraced the Marxist strategy to use the politics of identity, cancel culture, and mob rule for their own power and gain. This is not acceptable to me!!! If not complicit — and I’m not sure his mental state makes him capable of being complicit — Joe Biden is certainly trapped and used by the radicals who dominate his party and the leftist establishment in academia, Hollywood, and the media.

So, to answer all of those who would say “I can't believe you would vote for Trump." Well folks listen up! I'm not just voting for Trump. I'm voting for the second Amendment. I'm voting for the next supreme court justice. I'm voting for the electoral college, and the Republic we live in. I'm voting for the Police, and law and order. I'm voting for the military, and the veterans who fought for and died for this Country. I'm voting for the Flag and what it stands for. I'm voting for the right to speak my opinion and not be censored. I’m voting for secure borders. I’m voting for the right to praise my God without fear. I’m voting for every unborn soul extinguished by unfettered access to abortion. I’m voting for freedom and the American Dream. I’m voting for good and against the evil designs of Marxist movements. I'm not just voting for one person, I'm voting for the future of my Country! What are you voting for?
