I have been so quiet about this subject, as I didn't know what to say or if I should say anything at all. I decided that I would write about my thoughts and feelings about all of this.
This has been a wild election, with both parties accusing each other of things. It really has reminded me of circus clowns. Each contender trying to out do the other one. There has been some really horrible things that have been said and some really funny things. It really makes you wonder what is going through their heads, while acting like this. As a person, I know that I don't want a leader that makes fun of others, and make things look like a circus.
Both candidates have done things that they shouldn't be proud of, that the American people and the world shouldn't be proud of. Things disappearing off of a server and emails deleted, is a disgrace. How Benghazi was handled was a disgrace, lives were lost, that didn't need to be lost. It makes me wonder what kind of president Mrs. Clinton would have been due to all of these things, along with the fact that she wanted to take guns away. That is not a wise move at all, as the bad people will just keep continuing to get guns and working on destroying people, while the good people are left defenseless to fend for themselves. I know Mr. Trump is not a saint, but at least he wants to protect our constitution, which is really important to me.
The election results were very close for a while, then Trump won by a lot. There were states that changed the way they normally vote and went with Trump. I was glad that Trump won as I wanted to be able to keep my rights. Now don't get me wrong, having a woman president would have been awesome, and I have always wanted to be a woman president. Who knows maybe one day I will become one. Mrs. Clinton paved the way for girls to want to achieve their dreams, and she empowered woman to reach for their goals. I just don't think that she would have been the right woman president. I do know when the right one runs, I will definitely get out there and support her.
The things that made me sad was all of the riots that broke out the next day because of the election results. That was just plain childish and there wasn't a reason for it. It is time that people grow up and stop acting like babies. Yes I understand they were upset about the results, but so were a lot of other people and they didn't act out in riots. They were adults about things and moved on with life. There were no reasons for universities to cancel class and exams just because students were upset and to offer grief counseling. What the hell is that all about? There are many people who are trying to better themselves to get a degree, that have families, along with other responsibilities, and they don't get all of these perks. They don't show up to class and take that test, they fail. They have something happen in their lives, they don't get free grief counseling. They have to learn to deal with things and move on.
Let's stop babying the younger generation and babying others. Make them aware of consequences for their actions, make them grow up and face reality, stop sugar coating everything. By doing this, we are making a generation that is helpless. I know that I don't want a helpless person trying to lead this country or be in another position of power. I want someone who is a go getter, and who knows how to handle the everyday things that life throws at them, without them having a complete meltdown, acting like a spoiled little baby.
