With the election growing ever closer I decide to take to my blog for the first time in a long time. I hope the people of this country will make the best decision they can. But I don’t know if that will happen. I know my opinion probably isn’t worth much, but I hope it may bring some insight to others who are still unsure. In the beginning I was a Bernie Sanders supporter, but that doesn’t seem to be an option now.

I feel that Trump would be a true embarrassment for this country. A sexual pervert who moonlights as a sexual predator, a man whose fortune was founded by becoming a chronic liar and scamming normal people, and a hair piece with more intelligence than he has; not even a choice for me. I think the first final straw for me was when I read in the beginning of the election that Trumps’ plan for our country’s debt was to default on it!

Hilary isn’t much better. I agree with some of her ideas, but after everything from Benghazi to the emails I don’t trust her as far as I could throw her. Yes it would be great if we had a female president, but Hilary has already been in the White House, she’s had her time.

I will be voting instead for Jill Stein since my state is not one of the few that accept Bernie write in’s. She’s second best to Bernie. Why think red or blue when green is an option?

And for most of the country I am sure issues like legalization of marijuana and raising minimum wage will be on your ballot. I know for my county it’s prop 205 and 206. Vote yes. Many people in this country could use the help of both of these issues. I know many people have hesitations on marijuana but if it is taxed and regulated there will be no need for a “black market” for underages or delinquents to use. Minimum wage should really be a no brainer, I know I am sick of working a full time job for barely livable wages.
