Today, I unhooked from the Matrix. It is disorienting, but I needed to take the red pill.
Before I get into the meat of this piece, I’ll admit I hesitate to say I “support” Trump. During the primaries, he was not my top choice (far from it). However, in the end there were only two real choices, both deeply-flawed. Yes, something like Trump’s disrespectful and demeaning comments about women to Billy Bush could (should?) have been a disqualifier, but I would consider the same about Clinton’s “up to and including partial birth abortion” abortion stance. In the end, I voted for the one who I felt would be best for the country, would best follow the constitution, and who would most faithfully executed the nation’s laws.
