I am afraid of Republicans. Or more specifically, I am afraid of Republicans with power.
I am disillusioned with our government. Not only our existing elected and appointed officials, but the whole of it… the “democratic,” capitalistic system itself.
I am dreading November. I don’t want to feel like I did 4 years ago, getting my hopes up, thinking there’s no way in hell we would have to deal with 4 more years, and then watching the results while banging my head against the wall.
I disagree that a president or vice president of our nation should be “relatable.” These are the leaders of our nations. I would prefer a highly educated, well-spoken leader, despite how many houses he/she has or how “elitist” he is considered. I feel we’ve had a “good ol’ boy” in office for far too long.
I feel that church and state is not as separate as it once was, and that is a very scary thing.
I am insulted that, as a woman, I am expected by the the McCain camp to automatically change my vote for another woman, even though her platform could not be more fundamentally opposite than Hillary’s.
I am shocked and angry when I hear a woman say, “She’s just like me, and she’ll fight for my issues.”
