What made you vote for him?
Donald Trump ran a campaign and won the presidential election with two of his top 10 promises being to repeal Obamacare (Also known as the ACA or Affordable Care Act) and ban Muslims from entering the country. We all heard these promises repeatedly, along with many others, and also saw some of his unfavorable responses to debate questions along with statements made to various journalists. Many of us understood that there was absolutely no way we should ever let this man become president, yet there were those who, despite these promises and the fact that they would definitely adversely affect them, STILL voted this man into the White House.
Isn’t he simply doing what he said he would?
Now that the man has taken office and is keeping to his campaign promises, people are shocked and appalled. How can you be angry at someone for doing exactly what they said they were going to do if you helped give them the power to do it? Are people really that dim? Where people simply voting for him because of their racist hatred toward former President Obama of which Hilary was collateral damage? Was it because they felt a woman wouldn’t be effective as a president? Was it the emails in which time and time again Hilary was cleared of wrongdoing? Was it because they just hated Hilary more because of her heinous acts or the belief that her presidency would mirror Obama’s? If none of these things are true, then the only other viable explanation is they were, to put it bluntly, ignorant, uninformed, and blind to the facts. Let’s refresh our memories briefly.
Regretting your decision now, aren’t you?
With that said, it definitely explains why so many are realizing just how detrimental their racial, religious, and gender biases have been. I personally feel that they deserve every single bit of regret that they are experiencing. You VOTED to have yourself and loved ones banned from the country. You VOTED to have your health coverage taken away. Now those of us who were informed and unbiased enough to know that Hilary was definitely the lesser of two evils have to feel the same pain that you do, but at least we do so knowing WE tried to prevent it while you helped usher it in. So now, we will sit back and watch as you realize just how much you screwed yourself. Apparently, you now know what we knew all along so for those affected by the Muslim ban………
Hey, at least he’s getting rid of Obamacare right?
As for those who thought that cheering for the removal of Obamacare, just for the sake of your hatred of the former president, mainly due to the color of his skin and your ignorant belief that he was a Muslim, meant only people of color and those with low incomes would be losing their health care, you’re even worse. You are the ones who couldn’t care less about those who would lose life-saving coverage as long as YOU weren’t affected.
Well, I would have loved to see your faces when you finally realized that the only reason you had coverage was because of Obamacare. What’s that you say? You don’t have Obamacare? Is that because in your ignorance you had no clue that “Obamacare” was simply a cute little nickname for the Affordable Care Act? Well……..
Well, well well. Feeling foolish yet?
You simply can’t make this stuff up. It’s golden. For those of us that knew better, at least we get to sit back and watch Ms. Karma work her magic. Why would I or anyone else who did not vote for this disaster get out and protest a thing? We protested, campaigned, debated with friends, tried to inspire non-voters, etc when it still actually mattered. When it could have actually been stopped before it started. When we could have actually blocked this man from the presidency.
Now, these people want to protest the man when he is doing exactly what he said he would do all throughout his campaign? YOU VOTED FOR THIS! Now it’s time for us who had better common sense to just sit back and watch the fireworks while hoping if we are all going to get scorched anyway…..please let those who voted for him get burnt to a crisp.
For my fellow Americans who have to suffer through these next 4 yrs because of the mistakes of the ignorant, racist, sexist, homophobic and non-voters who all helped to make this our reality….this is for you.
