A Comprehensive List of Every Trump Flip and Flop since Election Day

America has put Trump into the Oval Office. It’s now on us to hold Trump accountable, and keep abreast of what he says and does. We owe it to America and our posterity to do our part as engaged and informed citizens.

This post is an effort to do so. If Trump makes a campaign promise, then reneges on it, that’s something the people of America deserve to know.  Continue reading →

LIVE BLOG: October 19, 2016 Presidential Debate

Tonight, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will face off in the final official presidential debate of the 2016 election.

This debate could prove critical for Trump and Clinton, but even more is at stake for the entire nation. A major misstep by Clinton in this debate could dramatically erode her gains from the last few weeks, whilst a major blunder by Trump could seal Clinton’s victory in November.

I will be live-blogging my reactions to the debate on this post, starting at 9pm EST (6pm PST).

The debate itself is free to watch – a live stream provided by YouTube and NBC is embedded below for your convenience.

LIVE BLOG: October 4, 2016 Vice Presidential Debate

Tonight, Senator Tim Kaine and Governor Mike Pence will face off in the first Vice Presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle. They are the Democratic and Republican candidates for Vice President of the United States.

They both face the same difficult task – persuading disaffected and undecided voters to join their side and vote for their ticket. Pence has the dubious distinction of running alongside Trump – he therefore has the responsibility for salvaging Trump’s disasters last week. Kaine has the unenviable job of defending Clinton and her policies from Pence’s attacks.

Never Trump, Never Clinton

Donald Trump is now the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, after both Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out of the nomination race earlier this month. The departure of those two candidates effectively cleared the way for Trump to win the GOP nomination.

Some people have asked me whether or not I am now supporting Donald Trump, considering his status as the presumptive nominee. My answer is an emphatic NO.

That answer holds true even if withholding my vote from Trump means handing the election to Hillary Clinton. That desperate scenario isn’t what we’re facing now, though. There are still six months until America goes to the polls. That’s half a year. There’s plenty of time for a third party candidate to come out onto the national stage, or for something else to happen that shakes up the presidential election.

Here’s why I still refuse to back Trump.  Continue reading →

7 Reasons Why You Should Vote For Marco Rubio

When Marco Rubio first announced his candidacy, I refused to support him. I felt that he lacked administrative experience and was not ready to lead the United States. I chose to support Scott Walker instead.

However, I have been convinced that I was wrong. When Walker dropped out of the race, I switched my support to Rubio. Rubio is experienced, equipped, and ready to take on the Democratic nominee and serve with distinction as the next president of America.

To all my friends who are old enough to vote – I urge you to take a second look at Rubio as well. I beg you to learn the truth about him, as well as the other candidates that will be on your ballot. I hope and pray that you will make an informed, logical decision based on the facts, not rhetoric or sound bites.

With that said, here are the reasons why I changed my mind about Rubio. Continue reading →
