Rebuttal to Jeff Brown’s ‘Why I’m voting for Trump’

By Shirley Gilliam

I agree that both candidates have flaws, and no one is perfect.

What policies they support? I do not know of a policy of Donald J. Trump’s that I support. He has no policy, and he has no plan other than to demoralize humans, who he regards are lower than he is. The mockery this man makes and the division he has caused is despicable. He has no character at all.

Normally, history repeats itself, but not necessary proves itself. At times, we will revise history to suit our own needs. The Democrats asked to let the people decide on the Supreme Court judge by way of voting to fill the vacant seat of Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That was her dying request.

On Election Day, Biden will be 78, and Trump will be 75. His age does not mean that Biden will succumb in office, resulting in Senator Kamala Harris finishing out his term. The same goes for Trump and Pence. In that sense, a vote for Biden is the same as a vote for Trump.

A key responsibility of a president is foreign policy. Give Trump and his administration another four more years and you will witness what his foreign policy will be. No new wars! No, because he is on his way to creating a civil or revolutionary war here in the Unites States with his division.

Biden helped managed the Recovery Act, which jumpstarted the longest stretch of job growth in our history. As far as money to black colleges, that was not Trump’s idea, but an act of Congress. Black Lives Matter means that for years Black life did not have any significance because of racial injustice. We were considered only 3/5th of a human, not even a complete human. Not one for one, until the post-Civil War 13th Amendment, the 14th Amendment and the 15th Amendment. All of this was done to boost the Southern Congressional representation. However, none of these acts were fully enforced. It did not ensure that the interests of slaves would be represented in the government. Blacks were forced to take an exam in order to vote. So, all we are asking is to be treated fairly according to the constitution.

I too, shudder to think about what four more years of Trump/Pence presidency would mean.
