Why I’m Still Voting for Donald Trump

I love my country more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I care about the future make-up of the U.S. Supreme Court more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I value the lives of millions of unborn babies more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I cherish my Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I care about America’s national security more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I care about America maintaining its sovereignty and protecting its borders more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I care about the millions of Americans who are out of work and looking for jobs more than I detest vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

I am outraged that U.S. strategic interests were sold by our former Secretary of State for personal enrichment (to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars) more than I detest vile and disrespectful, male locker room talk.

I will put the needs and issues facing this great nation ahead of my personal feelings and emotions about vile and disrespectful male, locker room talk.

My conscience and what’s at stake for our country compel me to do so. I will vote for Donald Trump in the presidential election and no one else.
