I'm only twenty-five, so, I haven't been voting long. I remember Obama's first term is the first time I ever voted. I wasn't too much into politics at that time seeing as it wasn't a complete interest of mine. I was still young and didn't have too much faith that my vote mattered since everyone was so thrilled and perplexed by Obama being the "First black President," blah blah blah.
I'm a firm Republican and for that I won't apologize for.
My beliefs are solely mine and I have a right to that as an individual, as a woman and most importantly, as an American citizen.
My family (one both sides, mother and father) left Cuba because of political reasons. My great great grandparents immigrated to Cuba from the Canary Islands in search of prosperity. My great great grandfather built a sugarcane empire at that time which was passed on to my great grandfather. Sweat, hard work and lots of tears from my grandmother and her family when the Castro reign took over wiping out everything they built and slaved for, for so many years, gone in an instant. My great grand parents died in this country with hopes of being able to go back to visit. They were robbed from what they had worked for and built by Castro. I couldn't stand by and see that happen to us Americas if Hillary Clinton won presidency.
This past election, I could not vote for Hillary Clinton, it would have been an injustice for everything my great grandparents, grandparents and parents have endured over the years.
They came to this country only with the clothes they had on and with hard work and dedication they built a life of comfort. I cannot give that away.
I don't believe in the Democratic party. I am solely Republican. There is no such thing as a free hand out. Everyone has to work hard for what they want it's simple, it cannot be given because you are an American and it's your right. No. That's wrong. The Americans who have what they have worked and strived for it at some point. It had to start somewhere.
I was puzzled and quite frankly dismayed at the controversy I saw on my own Facebook. Everyone was arguing and bickering at one another for having there own firm beliefs. People were deleting and blocking one another, it was pure chaos.
I am proud to be an American today, I am glad we will no longer suffer in this country. Eight years of misery lasted entirely too long. False promises and those same people who voted not once but twice for Obama who's promises weren't delivered wanted to vote again for Hillary? Four more years of no deliverance? And with a crocked record, come on you guys, where is your common sense, where is your intelligence...
My response to everyone on my personal Facebook this morning:
"Okay, so I rarely talk politics because like Religion it's a very easy subject to offend someone.
Seriously y'all, I haven't even wanted to look at my Facebook because everyone is creating UNNECESSARY animosity between one another due to their political beliefs. I voted Trump and my reasons why are my OWN personal reasons and if you don't like it, then stop reading now or just get over it because yesterday was Election Day and today is a new day, just like tomorrow will be a new day. I think it's so stupid that people are literally getting their feelings hurt about Clinton not winning. I'm HAPPY, GLAD, ELATED she DIDN'T win and that this country (ignorant people) didn't make her the next president. If Obama didn't do anything for you (I'm speaking to the Democrats) in eight years do you really think Clinton will...? Let's get real here, don't be ignorant or stupid and let's not even talk about how dirty and corrupt she is with the 39,000 emails or the Clinton Fund that went straight to their (Clinton's, yes plural, because their daughter Chelsea is responsible too) pockets.
Enough rant, your vote is your vote. My vote is my vote. RESPECT it. We (Republicans) didn't like when Obama won two terms, we would have gotten over it if he did his job right, so get over Trump winning and just hold him accountable to deliver what he said he was going to do for us Americans.
If you read this fully and completely and are still level headed, I respect you and I hope you have a great day."
God Bless America and may God bless Donald J. Trump.
We are ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
That is how it was intended and that is how it shall be, anyone who has a problem or an issue shouldn't call themselves an American and should live this country like all the Celebrities want to do. Little do they know this country is what gave them an opportunity to become a celebrity.
