An acquaintance who said, “I voted Red!” was immediately bashed for sharing her opinion. The individual said, “Nobody cares. A vote is private. JUST VOTE ????“
Here’s my response:
As for the individual, in case you haven’t noticed, the United States Constitution, specifically our First Amendment, recognizes, empowers, and protects the right of everyone in our nation to choose to make public their vote by any and every means at their disposal.
She is exercising her Constitutional rights. With all due respect, your attempt to get her to stop exercising her Constitutional rights is prime example of what’s wrong with the Democrat Party today: It’s ok for others to have opinions, but only so long as their opinions match yours.
On June 3, 2014, Senate Democrats took the first steps to rewrite the First Amendment. They claimed, “the foundations of democracy are threatened.”
It wasn’t just one of them. Fully Forty-Three Senate Democrats sponsored the amendment! That was nearly all of them, if not actually all of them.
This is the party you’re supporting, a party that routinely steps on YOUR Constitutional rights and freedoms every time it suites their pathetic craving to remain in control. The idea that we are “a government of the people, by the people, for the people” (A. Lincoln) is abhorrent to them. They have no respect for differences of opinion, precisely evidenced by Pelosi hushing a junior senator who “dared” to clap at President Trump’s State of the Union Address — as members of Congress and Supreme Court Justices have always done.
It’s rather sickening to watch people blinding voting Democrat like they’ve always done without realizing, understanding, or accepting the Democrat party of today is a vast departure from where it was just fifty years ago. I’d have voted for John F. Kennedy in a heartbeat. Any of today’s Democrats, however, engage in detestable, if not reprehensible practices.
We’ve always been a great nation. Now we have liberals chanting, “America was never great!” in the streets, despite the fact that most economic records have been absolutely shattered over the last nearly two years.
Democrats holding resolutely to their ideals cannot for the life of them figure out why. The rest of us are celebrating the rebirth of our great nation under non-idealistic policies that actually work.
And that’s a GOOD thing.
See you at the polls.
By the way, I’m voting RED. Why? Because I’m a Republican? No. Because I’ve studied business for 35 years and have three degrees, two masters in the field, so I know WHY our economy is doing so well.
I’m watching one news clip after another as shown in Death of a Nation as countless liberal news persons, celebrities, and others absolutely lost their minds.
Democrats may very well take the House this time around. They may take the Senate. But if they do it’s because people voted. And if they don’t, it will be for precisely the same reason: people voted. Before you vote, however, I simply encourage you to vote for what works, rather than some failed ideal. Vote reality.
And have a nice day. 🙂
