Ten reasons I may vote Trump/Republican this November

By Thomas J. Maly

Republican1. I have wonderful neighbors.  They are welcome in my home almost anytime.  However, I have this quaint notion that they should knock and not just come in without permission.  Seems to me our country should expect no less.  A precondition for meaningful immigration reform is a secure border for our country.  I may vote Trump/Republican.

2.  I like the idea that “sheepdogs, i.e. police, will respond when the “wolves” in the world attack we sheep. I may vote Trump/Republican.

3. It causes me great anguish as I see reports of so many being  killed by gunfire in our cities, especially the tragedy of children being caught in the crossfire.  I may vote/Trump/Republican.

4. It warms my heart when unemployment is at 3.5%,  there is record low unemployment for virtually all minority groups, and fewer numbers of folks on food stamps.  I may vote Trump/Republican

5.  After several presidents who promised and then did not move the American embassy to Jerusalem, I respect a president who promised to do so, kept his word, and moved it.  I may vote Trump/Republican.

6.  I am pleased that the USA no longer depends upon OPEC and their ilk for a good part of our energy needs.  I may vote Trump/Republican.

7. Seems to me the notion of having judges who have their decisions guided by the Constitution rather than current sociological trends is a great one.  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness works for me.  I may vote Trump/Republican.

8.  It has been refreshing to see a president who negotiates his way in the world emphasizing that trade not only be free but fair and that all pay their way in world bodies. I may vote Trump/Republican.

9. I am decidedly against politicos who bully Catholic nuns.  I may vote Trump/Republicans.

10. I have saved the most important reason for the last.  The ending of human life in the womb is the moral pandemic of our time – the slavery issue of our time/generation.  Abortion must be made unthinkable and illegal.  I may vote Trump/Republican.

Considering everything, there are a number of other reasons I could cite for voting Trump/Republican. This is my story – I’m sticking to it!

Blessings to all who read this.

    I concur.

    it should be a Trump/Republican blowout, but alas unlikely.

    Our constitutional republic is in peril.

    Tom, so many well-reasoned, logical points! The only problem is that the Left cannot process reasoning and logic… they only understand emotionally-charged outbursts and rage.
