Have you been following the election?
But seriously, have you really been following this. To catch you up, here are a few Trump quotes that may swing you onto the blue side.
Trump said this to the opposing lawyer during a court case when she asked for a medical break to pump breast milk for her three month old daughter.
He has now admitted that this was wrong and Obama is an American.
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”
How? Just how, can a candidate running for President say an incredably sexist comment like this? Would it make more of an impact if this was about african-americans or gay people? Oh wait, he’s done that too.
“I think the guy is lazy, and it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.”
Trump was talking about one of his employees that works at a casino.
America is “going to hell” because the NFL defended an openly gay player.
Trump referring to the NFL fining a player that was criticising Michael Sam, football player for the Rams, for being gay.
“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
Need I say more?
….hold on, there is A LOT more….
“The point is, you can never be too greedy.”
Except when you are $16.4 trillion in debt.
“I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down”
You know, 7/11, the convenience store in America where you buy red bull and Gatorade.
“The only card she [Hillary Clinton] has is the woman’s card. She’s got nothing else to offer and frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card, and the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her.”
Oh right, the many, many, years experience in politics and the numerous things she has done for American citizens doesn’t mean anything. How about the fact she knows it’s called 9/11 and not 7/11?
Let’s put aside Trump’s “successful businesses” and “savvy networking” skills. He blatantly has offended women, gays, muslims and African-Americans.
How can we let someone like this get so close to becoming the president of our country?
The latest poll (17 hours ago) has Hilary Clinton leading by only 2 points, 2 POINTS PEOPLE! (Washington Post-ABC News poll) .The poll’s margin of error is 4.5 percent, meaning the two candidates are virtually tied.
8 Million Americans living abroad.
As a whole we would be considered the 13th largest state in America.
But only 12% vote during overseas presidential elections.
We can actually make a difference.
In the 2000 election, if the overseas votes hadn’t been delayed, Al Gore would have won the state of Florida. George W. Bush was only in the lead by 537-vote and due to the delayed ballots which didn’t arrive by the 26 November deadline, he won (America’s Overseas Voters: How They Could Decide the US Presidency in 2016, University of Oxford)
And in the 2012 election, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. That adds up to Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which are the states Trump is baiting for. I will tax any Ford cars that are sent to Mexico by 35%! American companies should only be in America.
C’mon people will he really? The man who accused Barack Obama of not being an American citizen (and then had to admit he lied about it). With a wave of his hand he will magically double the tax. His so-called promises that will help the rich become richer are going to make him win, he’s making sense to a lot of Republicans out there. But we must not let him.

And if this isn’t enough to get you to vote online, let me give you ONE more reason to not vote for Trump:
Watch this video, you will be excruciatingly amazed at the absolute ridiculously sexist and vulgar references he made about women, even worse than the quotes above:
And just to add a cherry on top, here a 3 very good reasons why Hilary is the best candidate:
In her early days she was named one of the 100 most powerful lawyers. Followed by 40 years in public service, 8 years as first lady, 5 years as US Senator of New York, and besides the other 112 reasons, she is now serving as US Secretary of State.
She gets shit done and helps America.
- She championed the Global Health Initiative, which has helped lower infant and maternal mortality rates, improved medical facilities and reduced the spread of HIV.
- As first lady of Arkansas, she helped start Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families.
- When Bill Clinton became president, Hillary was on the front lines working to ensure the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was the first bill he signed into law.
- As U.S. senator from New York, she fought for paid leave.
- Hillary helped expand FMLA to wounded soldiers and their families
- She has also been a champion for women’s health, equal pay and domestic violence. She fought for women’s right before it was cool “human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.” But at the same time, she knows child care, equal pay, and paid leave are fundamental economic issues—not just “women’s issues.”
3. She believes our government should work for everyone, not just the people who are fortunate enough to be wealthy. She has said, “It’s outrageous that multi-millionaires and billionaires are allowed to play by a different set of rules than hardworking families, especially when it comes to paying their fair share of taxes.”
She wants to restore basic fairness to our tax code, close corporate and Wall Street tax loopholes and invest in America, simplify and cut taxes for small businesses so they can hire and grow, provide tax relief to working families from the rising costs they face and pay for ambitious investments in a fiscally responsible way.

Haven’t you had enough of this insane candidate when we have a perfectly acceptable one standing right in front of us?
What really scares me is the Trump doesn’t even care about being shamed, which means when issues like abortion or paid family leave arise while he is present, he simply just won’t care and will do what he wants. He doesn’t care about our country or the people in it.
“I wrote something today that was very salient, very important, probably not politically correct. But. I. Don’t. Care.” – Trump
