But this election year has made us especially leery of expressing any views that go against the LOUD and sometimes obnoxious majority opinions in our immediate community. I voted for Trump. Yep, I voted for him in 2016 and I enthusiastically look forward to doing so again in 2020. Don’t tell anyone!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been among different groups of friends, whether it’s in our neighborhood, church, school or family, finding myself awkwardly nodding along to everyone else’s comments in wholehearted support of Trump’s opponent. I’m not sure when it became taboo to support the President of the United States, but alas, here we stand.
Between you and me (and the thousands of strangers reading this), I don’t think Trump is a womanizer. I don’t think he is a racist. I don’t think he’s a bigot. I don’t think building a wall is crushing dreams of hopeful American citizens. All of these lies have been spun and already decided by the mainstream media, of which the narrative I do not subscribe to. Quite the contrary: I actually think Trump is one of the first presidents in decades that truly stands for our Constitution. He isn’t afraid to stand up for the rights of Americans. He isn’t afraid to champion freedom. He isn’t wary of giving a voice to the hundreds of thousands of voiceless unborn babies that lose their lives every year.
