I’m going to come right out and say it. I’m voting for Joe Biden in November. I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 and I’m not voting for him now.
Having said that, I see a number of people online who are proclaiming Biden to be the next president. To those people, I say those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Most people who voted for Hillary Clinton never thought that Trump even had a chance, yet here we are. The worst thing is, it could happen again and I’ll tell you why.
Trump supporters are essentially a cult and he’s their mandarin messiah. In simpler terms…
It doesn’t matter that he supports white supremacy.
It doesn’t matter that he only paid $750 on his taxes.
It doesn’t matter that he allowed COVID-19 to take the lives of over 228,000 Americans as of the time of this posting.
Trump could attend a cross burning while catapulting COVID-infected Mexican babies over the border and none of it would matter.
As long as he sows fear among those who think anyone different than them *cough*not white*cough* is a threat to their way of life, they will still vote for him.
Historically, old white folks have been a massive voting bloc. From what I’ve seen, they’ll have no reservations about putting him back in office for another four years.
Are you sad because your candidate wasn’t nominated? Tough shit. Get over it. I would have preferred Mayor Pete but you don’t see me crying about it. I know what we have to do to take our country back and it’s not sitting out the vote because Bernie didn’t win the nomination.
So don’t think your vote doesn’t count. Don’t vote for a third party, not this year. The stakes are too high. Since he won before without winning the popular vote, this election needs to be an overwhelming landslide so the outcome is not in question.
So you can either vote for Joe Biden or you can continue to watch your rights being taken away.
The choice is yours.
