This article is for the largest voting bloc in our nation; millennials. This election will shape your future. You will continue to live in a free country or choose the dark, fascist world of Donald John Trump. You have the power to prevent his reelection. Your vote, or your choice to remain at home playing with your i-Phone will make the difference on November 3rd.
Trump’s cult is composed of older, white men and women. They are not loyal and patriotic Americans, but they will go to the polls on election day. Trump’s supporters share Trump’s goals of moving our nation backwards when racism was rampant, gays were shunned and beaten to death, Jews and men and women who practice any faith other than Christianity were called “heathens,” and women knew their place; to serve men.
It doesn’t matter to the Trump cult that he is a self-admitted sexual predator, a failed businessman, and has never told the truth once. They are not concerned that Trump is not a Christian or that he rejects the principles and ideals of our founding fathers. They ignore the fact that Trump does not serve them; he is the president of the super-rich and is not interested in the needs or wishes of the majority. I hope these issues are important to you.
I want all millennials and other younger voters to understand that Trump’s policies are directly opposed to your beliefs. He uses anger, hatred, and violence to control his cult. Money is his only interest; his god. If you are not pure white, wealthy, or a supporter of white supremacy you are of no use to him. If you are a young woman, he is hell-bent on removing your right to control your own mental and physical health. If you are a member of the LGBTQ community, he will take away your right to marry the person you love.
If you choose not to vote in November, you are accepting another four years of Trump’s illegitimate presidency. It’s your choice and the only thing you are risking is your entire future.
Save America; vote for Democrats and Independents who are younger, more diverse, and please support every woman running for office on November 3rd. Our government should represent today’s America, and the majority are not old, male, and white.
