WTF, America.

Let me preface this entry by saying: I have voted for Republican presidential candidates in the past.  I don’t believe there is a “right” or “wrong” party.  I believe we need to vote on the needs of our people.  I also believe that a president is the “face” of the country.  She only has power if the rest of the system is in agreement.

Now.  WT actual F, America.

Are you telling me that DONALD J. TRUMP is A. Most Qualified B. The BEST we could do? Don’t you think we should put our “BEST” foot forward?  Yeah, I get it, Hillary AIN’T PERFECT either….but out of the two people we ended up with…wasn’t very much of a choice, right?


I’m perturbed that Bernie Sanders did not win candidacy.

I’m shocked that AMERICANS who SHOULD know their history voted for a misogynistic, hate instigating, racist bigot to office.

I’m disenchanted because I thought the US was better than this.  I thought most people were good-hearted, critical thinkers that believed in humanity.

Some pissed off rant stuff:

I’m Catholic.  I’m pro-choice and ANTI ABORTION.  (yes that’s a thing).  I have heard from some that they voted with their Christian values.  OH REALLY!  LET US EXAMINE HOW CHRISTIAN YOUR VOTE TRULY IS:

1. Trump has active rape allegations from various female victims.  I’m pretty sure God does not endorse this kind of behavior.

2. God gave us free will and founded this country on immigrants and our choices, and he wants to take THOSE away.  There ain’t nothin’ GODLY about separating families.  OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IS BROKEN!  Do you really think that people who came to the country illegally did so out of MALICE?   They had the choice to live in dire straits or survive….and I would have also chosen to survive, just as I expect you would have too.  If immigration processes were fair, fast, and efficient, people would not come into this GREAT COUNTRY illegally.

3. I’m sure JESUS LOVED BEING HUNTED for his life after he was born and He and His Family had to LEAVE to survive and Trump wants to hunt and remove people from our country

4.  He refused to DENOUNCE the KKK.  You guys know who the KKK is right?  They are white SUPREMACISTS.  That means they believe WHITES are SUPREME and the best race.

5. Trump believes in punishment for women who have abortions (like I said, I’m anti- abortion… so you’re probably asking, “so why are you all worked up about this one, Cristal?”)  Well, I’ll tell you why, because GOD gave us free will.  GOD IS MERCIFUL.  GOD IS COMPASSIONATE and WE ARE ALL CALLED TO BE LIKE HIM.  I think God would much prefer prevention of abortions ESPECIALLY ONES WHERE WOMEN WERE RAPED AND STRIPPED OF THEIR POWER.

I want to make a suggestion.  (I will now practice what I preach and use “I-Messages“).

I have too many things to say about the outcome of this election…and I want to address one more thing before I cut this off.


This is, simply put, the reason why I cannot and do not endorse a hate mongering, uneducated, inexperienced, unqualified, untactful, privileged, abusive, bigot like Donald Trump.  I believe that if=f you have a brain….if you have a conscience…and most of all, if you have EVER PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED OPPRESSION, RACISM, SEXISM, CLASS-ISM, MICRO-AGRESSIONS, OVERT AGRESSION, OR HAVE WORKED IN THE TRENCHES WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE….I KNOW YOU COULD NOT HAVE VOTED FOR trump.
