To the People who Voted for Donald Trump

Let me start by saying that I try not to judge people based on their political views. As long as you respect mine, I will respect yours, no matter how different. We are all allowed to have our differing opinions when it comes to politics, however in the case of Donald Trump- to me- it is not a political issue- it’s a moral issue. A moral issue that I can’t seem to understand. Before I launch into this post, usual disclaimer: I will not tolerate hate on my page so put it elsewhere. I will not have an online argument with you and I will not put up with bullying from anybody. If you can’t respect that, you may find yourself banned from my page. Everything I say in this post is not meant to be hateful. I am simply trying to understand how people can continue to support him, because I cannot wrap my head around it no matter how hard I try. So this post is for those of you who continue to defend him.

Trump’s campaign ran on the slogan “Make America Great Again.” Please explain to me how straining many of our foreign relations making America great again? How is becoming the laughing stock of the world making America great again? How is cutting funding to education making America great again? How is increasing the cost of college education making America great again? How is taking rights away from rape victims making America great again? How is giving rapists more rights than their victims making America great again? How is banning people from war torn countries from entering making America great again? How is calling Muslims terrorists making America great again? How is defunding the National Park Forests making America great again? How is destroying the EPA making America great again? How is ignoring climate change making America great again? How is taking away the Clean Water Act making America great again? How is the increase in hate crimes since his inauguration making America great again?

You blame people on Government assistance programs for the increasing debt in America, but you don’t seem to have a problem with millions of dollars of our taxes going towards Trump’s golf games. You said ensuring everyone in this country had healthcare would ruin this country, but you seem to be fine with Trump giving huge tax cuts to the top 1% while the middle class picks up the slack. We have a president who hides behind a Twitter page, degrades women and mental disabled, and pushes another world leader back so he can stand in the front, but you still have the audacity to say he is what’s best for this country. He was the first president since Nixon (who was the first) to fire the Director of the FBI, but you still want to offer him your support. Flint has lead in their water, schizophrenics can buy assault weapons again, the Secretary of Education has never attended a public school, and the head of the EPA is against environmental protection, but you still have the nerve to tell me that I’m “just being a snowflake?”

You can call me a snowflake or a libtard or weak or whiney; whatever you would like. To me, those words mean I care. I care about others. I have compassion and empathy, especially to those who need it the most. I care about people without healthcare. I care about people who can’t afford food. I care about people who can’t afford to seek a higher education. I care about people who are working at minimum wage, and are barely able to live off their wages. I would much rather be a snowflake than a selfish block of ice.
