Why I Want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain : A Comprehensive Argument for Donald J. Trump

As a precursor, I’d like to point out that you can tell this is a special occasion because the Video Editor is writing an article. I rarely write articles. This is special.

This election isn’t about who we want to be president, it’s about what path we want our country to go down for the next 45-50 years. If you don’t understand why one presidential term could have such a lasting impact on the country, don’t feel bad; you’re the majority. The next president will have the opportunity to appoint as many as four Supreme Court justices. Clinton will obviously appoint liberal/progressive justices thus giving the majority of the court to the left. Now this is obviously only a problem for conservatives. It’s okay to be liberal and I understand why liberals would want the court to have a left leaning, however, Republicans and conservatives that claim “Never Trump” should think twice because we’re not just picking our commander and chief for the next four years, we’re also selecting the Supreme Court for the next 45-50 years.

This election isn’t about who we want to be president, it’s about what path we want our country to go down for the next 45-50 years.

Okay, so I’ve already explained why every right-winger should vote for Trump. But why should the average middle-ground person vote for Trump?

Trump has made this election about something that no other presidential race has ever seen. This race has become about rising up against the establishment; it’s why Bernie had so much traction and it’s why Trump does too. Clinton has tried to latch onto this anti-establishment train hopelessly. She claims that “Nothing can be more against the establishment than the first woman president”. Well X chromosome or not, she’s a career politician who has spent the last 35+ years of her life in politics. She is literally the establishment. She could easily be playing off her experience and resume… but Trump and Bernie have already made the election about fighting people like her, and she didn’t have the courage to say anything that she thinks her supporters will disagree with.

But what if you don’t mind the establishment? Well that’s okay. It’s not for me personally because I believe that it’s a corrupt system that needs to die, but everyone’s entitled to their opinion. So you like Clinton because she has the experience that she claims will make her a good president? It’s obvious that she has had a lot of time in different positions and gained experience, but what has she actually done with her time in office? She voted to send troops into Iraq (look where that got us) and then she also supported pulling out the troops in Iraq (creating a power gap quickly filled in by a very willing independent group, ISIS.) While serving as Secretary of State (the position that is responsible for all foreign affairs) Clinton just watched while a group of Islamic militants viciously attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans died at the hands of the Islamic militants. Prior to the attack, there were multiple requests for “an increase in security due to violence occurring outside the compound”… all of which Clinton denied. Also while in her position as Secretary of State, Clinton accepted a donation of $25 million from Saudi Arabia, a $1 million donation from the United Arab Emirates, and $5 million each from Qatar and Oman. These donations were made out to The Clinton Foundation (a “charity” organization criticized for giving very small portions of their income to the actual cause and large portions of the income to corporate staff and their affairs). These donations were made through the foundation and not directly to her campaign because it is illegal for a candidate to accept contributions from foreign entities for the fear of “owing” these countries favors in office. By going through her foundation they added a middleman to her campaign thus avoiding the laws preventing it. The Clinton Foundation is an entire discussion on its own right and if you’d like to learn more about its dark past, I would recommend that you watch the mini-documentary “Clinton Cash.”

Beyond the corruption of her political career, she has also been constantly lying since she first got into the spotlight. Currently, Hillary claims to be the advocate for women. She stands with the victims of rape and says that we need to do more to make sure they are helped. However, when her husband was in office, there were 17 documented accounts of Bill raping and sexually assaulting women. Now everyone’s heard of Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers, but what happened to the others. Hillary Clinton allegedly paid private investigators to dig up dirt on the victims and discredit them publicly. The victims also have claimed that they received threats from people paid for by Clinton. Clinton constantly contradicts herself and lies about things that don’t even matter. These are signs of a pathological liar.

She lied about her arrival in Bosnia, claiming that she was under heavy sniper fire, and that they were running to shelter, whereas the video footage showed her exiting the plane into a crowd of supporters, and shaking the hands of young girls. She had nothing to gain from that, she just lied for the sake of lying. It’s the same kind of lie that discredited news anchor Brian Williams. The difference is that Williams lost his job for what he lied about, Clinton is so politically powerful that she’s immune to such criticisms.

Donald J. Trump and Bernie Sanders have two things in common: They are both anti establishment, and they both speak from their hearts. I may not have agreed with Bernie’s Policy, and you might have, but at least he was a decent human being. Hillary is such a corrupt politician that we don’t even know who she really is. She will do anything for power and money. Donald J Trump may be a loud mouthed flaming ball of a wildcard, but at least he’s transparent with what he’s thinking. Trump is the bomb that will demolish the politically correct mindset. But if you look past his extremely rough exterior he is a great businessman who wants nothing more than to save his country from its dark and dismal future.

Donald J. Trump is the only candidate capable of demolishing other countries ideas of a weak America, and Trump is the only candidate that can set this country back on the right track.

Some people argue that Trump hasn’t been a successful businessman because he has had failures in his past. I personally believe that this way of thinking is quite moronic. Think about all of the great people of literally any given field… now tell me they didn’t have failures. Michael Jordan once said “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” So is Michael Jordan not a good basketball player because he has missed 9000 shots? I don’t think so either.

People claim that Trump is the next Hitler, and that he’s going to be an anti-minority dictator, and in all honesty, I don’t understand that argument at all. See, Trump can say whatever he wants, but that doesn’t mean that everything he says is possible. A lot of what Trump says is said to bring attention to bigger issues and to rally a specific demographic. If Trump were to go out and say “I want to increase the protection of the southernmost border of the United States” no one would bat an eye, but if he screams “I’M GOING TO BUILD A WALL, AND MAKE MEXICO PAY FOR IT” everyone and their mothers freak out. It brings an amount of attention that is unheard of in politics, and it gets people thinking about the issues. Trump has told New York Times that he doesn’t plan on building a physical wall between us and Mexico, so I’m sorry if you thought he would, but it goes to show that he is trying to stir up the pot. And for the sake of discussion, let’s say that he GENUINELY wants to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. In the United States we have this lovely thing called checks and balances. This means that if the president wants to do something, it has to get past a system of approval by the Supreme Court (which consists of very educated people who would all know that this is unconstitutional). So it’s actually impossible for him to become this dictator that everyone fears he will be. Hitler rose to power because once he was in office nothing was stopping him. In the US we could literally elect Adolph Hitler and virtually nothing bad would happen (nothing good would happen either but it’s just an example). It’s part of what makes the country so great.

Obviously, by now, you have seen the video of Trump’s “locker room banter.” I feel that if this argument didn’t acknowledge this, it would be a weak argument. I’m not going to try to defend the vile things that he said. It was wrong and he shouldn’t have said it. However, there are some points that need to be considered. People claim that they don’t want “a bad influence” as commander and chief. When did this become an issue? Kennedy was a sex addict, Nixon was a paranoid maniac, Bill Clinton was a sexual predator, and Obama was a college pothead. This idea that the president is supposed to be this perfect person is outrageous. The election is not for the position of your new best friend, it is about selecting the next leader of the free world. We need to stop worshiping this job position and acknowledge that the presidents are just people too. Secondly, we all knew who Donald Trump was before this election. He has been in the limelight since the late 90’s. He was living the life of a playboy/billionaire/TV show host. I personally didn’t find the footage to be surprising at all considering the latter.

In conclusion, I support Trump because he is obviously the best choice out of the present options. I’m sorry to break it to you third partiers, but a vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson is just a pointless statement. Donald J. Trump is the only candidate capable of demolishing other countries ideas of a weak America, and Trump is the only candidate that can set this country back on the right track. We do NOT need a corrupt politician in charge of our fine country. We need a proven leader who cares about America.

Get out to vote on November 8th. Get your friends and family to vote as well. Let’s make America great again.
