After finding out who the nominees are for this year’s Presidential Election, I find myself feeling uneasy. As someone whose never really been too much into politics but always conscious of what’s going on, I find myself feeling unsure of the state America will be in over the next four years if either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump get elected into the White House.
To be honest, I’m scared at the two choices my country is having to pick from. While one candidate has more political experience over the other, they are both people I don’t find myself wanting to make a decision of which is the lesser of two evils.
Donald Trump is someone I especially will never vote for as long as he runs for office. As a woman, he’s someone I never want to see in the White House because of the recent allegations against him of raping a 13 year-old and all of the other scandals he’s been a part of over the years. He’s the type of guy who says whatever is on his mind, even things that aren’t necessarily true. Then denies he said such things even though he’s caught saying them. He reminds me of every guy I’ve ever dealt with in life that’s hurt me, like the kids who bullied me when I was in school.
The most important reason why I’ll never vote for him is because he doesn’t know what he’s doing. He has no political experience and attempts to make up for it by reminding people of all of the terrible things Hillary Clinton has done. When debating, he never answers the debate questions, just skirts around them. The only real plan of his I know of is his wall for Mexico because he never talks about the issues. He’s not a good fit for president because he doesn’t care about the American people and insults anyone that says anything bad about him.
However, Hillary Clinton isn’t someone I feel very comfortable voting for either. Though I believe she’s a much better choice than Trump out of the two, I can’t stomach her being in the White House because of the scandal with her classified emails along with the other scandals she’s involved herself with, such as Benghazi. While she has the political experience we need in the White House, I don’t like the idea of her being our president. She speaks very well about the issues, but with everything she’s done, I have a hard time stomaching the idea of her being placed in such a position of power.
But those aren’t the only reasons why I’m uncomfortable with the idea of her winning the presidency. As a woman, I think it would be nice to have our first woman president. But at the same time, I think Hillary Clinton isn’t a good example of the type of woman we should have in office. Someone who covers up bad things they’ve done that have jeopardized the safety of our citizens isn’t someone I feel comfortable leading our country. If she were to get into the White House, I’m worried at the chances our country would have of having a woman as president ever again.
Both candidates are the worst choices we’ve ever had in any election. As someone who wants to express their right to vote, the idea that these two are my only choices scares me because I don’t like either one. Yet, if I don’t express my right to vote, I have no reason to complain. But I want to make an intelligent decision before I vote because the person whose chosen will be a leader in our country for the next four years.
But since I don’t know who I want to vote for, I don’t know if I will vote this election cycle. I don’t like the choices we are being given and am seriously debating on voting third party if I do decide to vote this election because Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump aren’t quite cutting it for me. Maybe the next election will be better all across the board to where I’ll know who I want in the White House for our country. But right now, I’m completely discontent with our choices and just don’t know if I want to vote at all.
