Lately, I've been thinking about the upcoming presidential election for America. I hardly ever post this kind of stuff on my art accounts, but I feel like I should, since it's very important and not something to be ignored.
I found out that in several interviews with college students (people my age) across the country, they were saying they'd vote for Hillary, and when asked why, they said "Because she's a woman". Or rather a democratic woman, because Sarah Palin was running for vice-presidency, but news stations slammed her for her ideals. I listen to that and think, "Really? Is this really what determines such a significant vote? Just a 'fad'? First they vote for Obama because he's "the first black president', and now they want to vote for Hillary because she's a woman?" I can't help but feel kind of sad. Is that what a lot of people my age think? Or rather, it's that they don't think at all? I don't want people to vote if they're only voting to make a "first" or to be in the "group". I want people to vote because they actually think it through. Because they actually know what's going on.
America is losing it's freedoms and greatness, and the government has become much too large and controlling. It's a far cry from the first president, George Washington, refusing any pay for being president and not even wanting to be president, to how much money the politicians and president makes today. Did you know that when America was first formed, there were many people that wanted George Washington to be a king instead of a president? He refused, because that's what they had fought to get away from.
Instead of looking at the R and the D, instead of voting for progressive people that want to continue to take away the freedoms of Americans, I instead look at the libertarians and those who uphold the values of the Constitution. There's two men that come to mind: First is Rand Paul, who is already running for presidency. Second is Dr. Ben Carson, who has not yet announced that he's running, but if he is, I will vote for him. If you're curious about them they both have facebook pages that you can check out and read some of the things they say. Also, if you have the internet space to watch this, here is a youtube video of a speech Dr. Ben Carson made at Obama's National Prayer Breakfast: [link]. And here is Rand Paul's presidential bid speech: [link] (Also a youtube video)
Both have libertarian values. (In case you're not sure on the meaning of libertarian, here's a good definition from wikipedia: Libertarianism (Latin: liber, "free") is a political philosophy that upholds liberty as its principal objective. Libertarians seek to maximize autonomy and freedom of choice, emphasizing political freedom, voluntary association and the primacy of individual judgement.)
Voting for a president is very important, and not something to be taken lightly. I hope more people my age will vote for someone because they truly believe in and agree with what that person is saying, not because it's a fad or for another mindless reason.

More than anything, please keep this in mind: Do not focus and talk about the people who you don't want to see as president, instead, focus and talk about the people you DO want to see as president. What you think about, you bring about, but your feelings also play a part. So, make sure to be positive, as much as you can! Be positive, be grateful, and voice the things you like, not the things you don't like and things that make you negative.
Some people might think that doesn't make a difference.
It makes all the difference in the world.
