A Short note on Voting.

I’ve never voted for a “party” (except in college!). One had to be 21 when I was first eligible to vote in a presidential election. The south was totally democrat. I voted for Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican. I voted for John Kennedy, a Democrat. I did not vote for Nixon or Lyndon Johnson or Jimmy Carter. I skipped those elections. I (regretfully) voted for the Bushes, but not for Clinton. All career politicians.

I am in my 80s, but I am not senile. I have seen this country in good times and bad times.. I can honestly say this election is the MOST important one of my life. In all seriousness, it is not a personality contest. It is not between the brash, sometimes abrasive President and a feeble old man you might feel sorry for. This is life or death for America, and I am not exaggerating. I hope you, especially young people, realize this election is Democracy versus Communism. It is between Freedom and Slavery. If not for yourself, for your children and grandchildren, vote for Donald Trump. If he does not win, America as we have known it, is over. And it will never come back.

Please consider the consequences  when you vote. Our country hangs by a thread. I don’t want to die in a Communist country. Some elections have been won or lost by one vote. It could be yours.  Thank you.
