Charlottesville

What happened in Charlottesville is truly disgusting, disgraceful, and appalling. Trump’s response to what happened was too little, too late, and wildly disingenuous. He does not care about the people of this country. Anyone who pretended that racism and anti semitism was a thing of the past in this country has hopefully had their eyes opened.

Separation

All laws in this country have to be written WITHOUT the influence of religious beliefs. Religious beliefs have no bearing on the laws in this country, because we have a clear separation of church and state, or at least we are supposed to. We are NOT a theocracy. Your religious beliefs don’t support same sex marriage or abortion? Who cares, because your own religious beliefs don’t matter when it comes to written law. Your personal beliefs, have no bearing on the laws in this nation. Laws are to be written without the influence of any religious doctrine in the United States of America. So your own personal beliefs, and the personal, religious beliefs of your congresspeople and senators and PRESIDENT, have NO BEARING on the laws of this country. Laws are to be written without such influences.

WE HAVE A SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE FOR A REASON.

Fear

Donald Trump’s new press secretary just held a press conference that was filled with lies, deceit, anger, rage, stupidity, and nonsense. He didn’t take any questions, and looked like he was brimming with hatred. Trump spent most of his speech at the CIA talking about himself and the size of his crowds yesterday at the Inauguration. That was truly a disaster of epic proportion. People should be afraid of this new administration, it’s already off to a terrible start. 

2008

I think Barack Obama was a good President, and I think he is a good person as well. Was he a perfect President? No. Did he makes mistakes? Of course. Did I agree with all of the decisions he made as President? Absolutely not. But I am able to see the bigger picture, and understand his impact on history, and culture, and celebrate his many accomplishments, whilst still acknowledging his failures as well.

Working on President Obama’s 2008 campaign saved me during a very dark time in my life. College was hard for me. I struggled a lot meeting people and making friends. I found out about a group of students on campus who supported Obama before he even announced his candidacy in February 2007. And I joined them. During college, I suffered from crippling loneliness, anxiety, and depression, and dealt with daily panic attacks for months. His campaign, and the friends I made whilst working on it, SAVED me. They gave me purpose, they gave me drive, and they gave me friendship. My time working for his campaign gave me a reason to keep going, and something to believe in. It gave me hope. And he HAS changed the landscape and trajectory of American history, whether people like to acknowledge that fact or not.

I am grateful. Eternally grateful. And I will never forget that, or apologize for it. Thank you, President Obama. For everything.

Just Keep Watching

Watch the people Trump puts into power before and during his Presidency. Look at people like Pence and Bannon. Look at what we have done as a country. This many people should not live in fear that their rights will be taken away by the President. Greatest country in the world my ass.
