Hillary Strikes Debate Night Blow

Monday night was a horror show for many Republicans across the country, myself included. To see Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as the two candidates on the debate stage was a living nightmare for me. With that said of the two people on the stage, it was clear that Hillary Clinton was the more qualified; both on policy and temperament to be President of the United States of America.

 

Clinton VS Trump

Hillary had Trump on the ropes from the “opening bell”. With Trump backpedaling on defense and with the spotlight shining on only two candidates, Mr. Trump was not able to debate in his typical “smoke and mirror” style. When pressed for specific policy answers by moderator Lester Holt or by Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump seldom had an answer deeper than “because we will”.

Hillary hammered Trump on his “birther history” and deftly tied that into his and his family’s history of racism through their discriminatory rental history. Mr. Trump has to set the record straight, why does he think President Obama wasn’t born in this country? Why did he and his father not rent to African-Americans in the 1970s?

The debate showed us what we have all feared to be true. Trump simply does not have the temperament to be POTUS. His eye-rolls, sarcasm, and body language were anything but presidential. You can say a lot of things about Mrs. Clinton (such as the fact that she is dead wrong on the Iran deal and ending stop and frisk), but she keeps proving that she has presidential temperament.

As someone who works for a small business, it was appalling to me to hear Trump say that it was okay not to pay a contractor if you are not satisfied with their work. Small businesses depend on progress and final payments to pay their bills and feed their employees’ families. Is Mr. Trump saying that a contract is not binding? We need an answer to this question.

“The Donald” lied again regarding his support of the War in Iraq. Thanks to Howard Stern’s interviewing prowess, we have recordings of Mr. Trump on the record stating his support for the war which he now says he was against. Will he answer why he continues to lie about this?

Trump also never responded to Hillary’s claims that his tax plan will add $5 trillion to the national debt. He needs to answer this question, if not we must assume that this assertion is true.

The bottom line is this is the Worst. Election. Ever. Hillary is a very flawed candidate, but is someone that I would trust with the nuclear codes much more than Mr. Trump. To me this is the deciding factor when faced with two terribly flawed candidates. As a party, we must work to heal from the Trump disaster and focus on common sense economic reform and keeping our country safe. #NeverTrump #GOPWithHer

 

I’m A Republican Advocate Named After Ronald Reagan – #ImWithHer Anyway

#GOPWithHer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By: Veronica Brown

 

I’ve been a Republican my whole life-and by whole life, I mean whole life; my sister and I are even named after Ronald Reagan (Ver-RON-ica and Reganne – get it?).

 

I was that kid who in first grade proudly slapped a Dole ‘96 bumper sticker on her pencil case. I actively engaged in political debates with my liberal hippie teachers throughout middle school and high school in Seattle, and for college I picked the most politically active school in the country (Raise High, GW!) to continue fighting for the fundamental beliefs I hold so dear. Needless to say, I’ve been a warrior for conservative values every step of the way.

 

I’ve been waiting for this election for the past eight years. Like most conservatives, I believe Barack Obama’s presidency has been a disaster for our country. A failed healthcare system, an economy that hasn’t recovered as well as it should have, and continued overreach through executive orders have set America on a course for failure. I couldn’t wait to take our country back and elect a Republican who would advance conservative ideals and put us on the right track.

 

But instead, this year I’m voting for Hillary Clinton.

 

This decision did not happen overnight. I’ve grappled with my options for months, losing sleep over what to do. Countless conversations with friends (conservative and liberal) going back and forth, weighing third party candidates, and even considering sitting this one out – finally led me to the decision to put allegiances aside and vote for a woman I’ve despised for years.

 

Donald Trump’s rhetoric has gone too far. His comments, particularly about women and minorities, are pure hatred. When has it ever been okay for a public figure to say such things?

 

We, the party of Lincoln and Reagan, cannot let this tyrant of a man win. He has taken away any hope we have as a party to move our country forward. His childish tactics, brash words, and lack of knowledge and policy plans are setting us up for catastrophe, both as a country and as leaders of the free world.

 

I fundamentally disagree with almost everything Hillary stands for. You won’t see me cheering for policies like free college, raising the minimum wage or universal healthcare. But my reasoning is simple: I’m voting for her because it’s the only sure-fire way to vote against Trump.

 

It’s time for us to put party politics aside and choose reason over rhetoric, experience over ignorance and love over hate.

 

This year #ImWithHer.

What is There Left To Say? Compare and Contrast

Last night, our worst nightmare came true. Donald Trump is not only the Republican nominee, but he delivered a frightening, divisive speech that was completely divorced from the reality in this country right now.

We’ll be spending the next few days watching Reagan speeches and recovering. Next up, the misery of watching Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech.

In the meantime, enjoy:

Reagan:

“Trust me” government asks that we concentrate our hopes and dreams on one man; that we trust him to do what’s best for us. My view of government places trust not in one person or one party, but in those values that transcend persons and parties. The trust is where it belongs–in the people. The responsibility to live up to that trust is where it belongs, in their elected leaders. That kind of relationship, between the people and their elected leaders, is a special kind of compact.

Trump:

“I alone can fix this.”

How far we have fallen.

You are not alone
