Last week I was having lunch with an old friend of 57 years and during the conversation I asked him “Why are you voting for Trump?” just to see his thought process as compared to mine. He passed along the following statement that’s been circulating on social media and who’s author is unknown. I thought it was worth sharing.

“I’m not voting for Trump. I’m voting for the 1st amendment and freedom of speech.

I’m voting for the 2nd amendment and my right to defend my life and my family.

I’m voting for the next Supreme Court Justices to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I’m voting for the continued growth of my 401k retirement and the stock market.

I’m voting for a return of our troops from foreign lands and an end to America’s involvement in foreign conflicts.

I’m voting for the Electoral College and the republic we live in.

I’m voting for the police to be respected and to ensure law and order.

I’m voting for the continued appointment of Federal Judges who respect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I’m voting for our jobs to remain in America and not be outsourced again to China, Mexico and other foreign countries.

I’m voting for secure borders and legal immigration.

I’m voting for the military and veterans who fought for this country to give us our freedoms.

I’m voting for the unborn babies that have a right to live.

I’m voting for continued progress towards peace in the Middle East.

I’m voting to fight against human/child trafficking.

I’m voting for freedom of religion.

I’m voting for the American Flag that is disrespected by many.

I’m voting for the right to openly speak my mind and not be censored.

I’m not just voting for one person. I’m voting for the future of my country.

I’m voting for my children and grandchildren to ensure their freedoms and their future.”

What are you voting for?
