Everyone knows that this presidential election is ending soon on November 8th. This election could very well be the most important election of our lifetimes.
Our country is now almost at the point of no return. We have seen the last 8 years of the Obama presidency make our country almost unrecognizable to what it used to be. We used to be the greatest country ever created, one that was of the people by the people and for the people. Obama promised us change, and he brought it. The change he brought was not a good change, it was a change that sought to destroy the fundamentals that made this country truly great. We are at a time when racial divisions are greater than the past 20 years, crippling debt is promising to destroy our children’s future, our values and moral foundations have become dilapidated, and patriotism is hard to find.
I am composing this message because I think that it is our job to turn this country around and one of those ways is to vote for what we know is right. I am not taking an unbiased stance in this message. I am voting for Donald Trump for president and I am encouraging you to do the same. I am not pretending that he is the perfect candidate, we all know that. We are all aware of the foolish things he has said and there is no defense for what he has said. However, if you compare Trump to Hillary, the difference could not be greater. If you look at the bad things that everyone credits to Trump, you will find nothing but words. What I find refreshing about Trump is that he truly believes America is a great place and he does not apologize for it. To many people on the left including Hillary, America is country whose wrongs outweighs its rights. If you look at the bad things Hillary has done, you will find corruption, treason, lies, and plenty of people who have paid the ultimate price. This election has so much counting on it and I know that the American people have what it takes to right the wrongs of our past.
Finally, I am writing this message to inspire patriotism in all of you. We all have different things we care about in life, but I think that care for our fellow man and our God given rights are something we all share in common. We are at a time when there seems to be a shortage of good hearted people. I think this could not be further from the truth because I see ordinary Americans do great things every day. I know that if we keep our faith in God and work with each other, we can make the United States the best that it has ever been. However, I know that this road is tough and is one that most people would rather not take. Doing the right thing is often riddled with hardships and I am aware of that. I think that if we have the right mindset, we are capable of accomplishing any goal that we have. In a quote by Thomas Paine, he said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” This is my hope, that we can deal with the struggles of today to leave a better future for our children, and we can do this by carefully voting in this election.
I would like to end this message with a quote by Martin Treptow. Martin was a US soldier who died in France in World War One. When his body was recovered, they found his journal and in that journal was a pledge that he wrote himself. The pledge said, “America must win this war. Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.” While we may not be fighting a war, I like to adopt this pledge as my pledge to do what must be done. I encourage you all to keep fighting the good fight and know that we can achieve this goal. Thank you for taking the time to read this, please share this with everyone you know.
