Recovering from the 2016 election

I haven’t posted to this blog in awhile. Between working at Hy-Vee, publishing podcasts, and sometimes playing Minecraft, I haven’t had much to write about. Besides, I get mostly hateful comments when I do say what I’m thinking, but the following is a copy of my most recent Facebook post about my thoughts on Hillary and Trump. Notice that I waited until after the election was over to say this? There is a reason for that. I do not like to give the impression that I am out to convert people to a political view. I hate politics and have tried to make it clear that I am not affiliated with a political party nor have I voted in an election since the time I voted for Mitt Romney.

So for those who are bored out of your mind and have nothing else better to do, go ahead and read the following:

“I have a suspicion that many people probably voted for Trump because of his statements claiming to be pro-life. I find that rather disturbing given that he’s almost certainly a rapist and will most likely start wars that kill lots of people who have already been born.

Some of you may still remember that I’m absolutely against abortion and spent a long time debating it before finally giving up. I don’t talk about it much anymore but I will say this much. That was the biggest reason why I simply could not vote for Hillary Clinton even though nearly all my friends wanted me to and kept telling me she was the “lesser of two evils”.

At the same time, I couldn’t have voted for Trump because I don’t believe a word he says. And I do believe he raped those women too. Is he the “greater of two evils”? Honestly I don’t know and don’t really care at this point. He’s our new president for better or worse.

I’m just glad that election is over. Let’s just admit that the 2016 election was just complete stupidity and that as usual, it only made the American people turn against each other as they often do whenever there is conflict.

We are all in this mess together that none of us chose. It is because I understand that choice is a complete illusion that I find myself unable to hate anyone no matter what their political opinions are.

The main thing that matters to me in life is speaking about these important issues with my cohosts on the podcasts I do.

I hope that people get back to the heart of what matters in terms of respecting life and having ethics that make sense first before ever digging into politics.”

I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.
