Every Vote Counts!

I haven't written for a while because I needed a rest and time to think about the last two weeks of election news. It really is amazing that with all that is out there, negative, about Trump that he hasn't yet fallen totally in the polls. His constituency seems to feed on the negativity and rally around him. That only makes it more important to bring over as many of the undecided voters to really vote for Clinton, especially if they want to guarantee that Trump loses the election. I just don't get it! Is it because people are naive to not realize that life can really change with a Trump administration? I hear people saying, it can never happen, referring to Woman’s Rights being taken away, or the laws for Gay Rights being changed. What about the Supreme Court? They laugh, and say, “It won't happen,” or, “He doesn't mean what he says,” Trump’s hard core supporters feed on his negativity and racist remarks. Then you have what I call the “Country Cub Supporters,” comprised of people, young and old, who are just blinded by his so-called success and totally worried about their own personal monies, as though, if Hillary Clinton were elected there would be a “Money Truck” sent to their individual homes to collect it. They haven't done so badly under Obama, although constantly complaining about everything he has done or even not done. Being a Republican as an answer doesn't cut it when you are talking about Donald Trump. As stated by almost every newspaper throughout the US, he is a clear endangerment to our country if elected President. Their advice, even without supporting Clinton, is not to vote for Trump!
I am not going to try to make you like Hillary Clinton, but like-ability and endangerment are as far away from each other as you could possibly be. You might say you don't like someone, but are not really afraid of them or their ideas. Even if you agree with those who feel she has lied, which has not been proven correct, it is not the same as being unstable and unhinged, an uninformed bully placing his innate values on self serving initiatives only to get support from the lowest of the low. He brought them out from under, and you, the followers, like sheep, are going to be guilty if he wins.

I did something, yesterday, on Rosh Hashanah that I felt was important to me and my family. I took our son who is mentally challenged to get his voter's registration card. He is 48 years old this Thanksgiving and it will be the first time he will be voting in a Presidential Election, or any election. After seeing Donald Trump making fun of a reporter’s disability I felt the need for our son to speak out. His vote against Trump will be one more nail in the coffin for all that he has done to hurt those with disabilities. I hope that other people will do the same. It was really a great feeling seeing him sign his name to the application. Every vote will count!
