I’ve never been a politiclal animal, and have always loosely followed presidential campaigns, but never in my sixty-six years have I seen anything that even comes close to what’s happening now.
And so, for the first time in my life, I have to admit, I’m totally engrossed in this election. Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Donald Trump is the most fascinating, in your face candidate to come along in our lifetime. He dominates the news day after day after day and goes after those who criticize him with a vengeance that we’ve never seen before. He’s as rich as Croceous and can’t be bought, but what really fascinates me is his lack of filter.
I have the most interesting conversations with my friends and family about his ideas and the things he says, and have to admit that sometimes my jaw just drops in disbelief at what comes out of his mouth. But it’s refreshing to not hear the same old boring “politically correct” rhetoric that the establishment has crammed down our throats for years. Now that Iowa is upon us, it certainly makes for an interesting, normally boring January. It’s such a serious issue, we will be picking a person to lead our country. People had such high hopes when Obama was elected that he would unite our country, instead we’ve seen a presidential train wreck and the worst racial tension that I’ve witnessed since I was a young girl. And this comes from someone who always considered herself a Democrat. Now I think both parties are a disgrace and I wish Trump could make America Great Again!
If he and Hilary both go the distance, it’s going to be one helluva race to the finish folks. And like the rest of the nation, I will be there, front row and center, watching it all unfold...
