Why I Voted for Trump—Unabashedly

Put another way, we have to fight their thuggery with a thug of our own.  Otherwise it's business as usual.

But that's not entirely fair to Trump.  He himself acknowledges in many of his speeches that he exploited the corruption of our society while a businessman—and that is the reason he knows better than anyone else how to correct it.  I don't know if that's completely true, but he is certainly the first in decades who is willing to try, the first who is even talking about it.

He is also the first Republican in decades to make a serious attempt for the African-American vote.  We can only hope that others will follow his lead, for the benefit of all our communities. The exploitation of African-Americans by the Democratic Party has been the greatest sin of our culture.

There are plenty of other reasons to vote for Trump—the Supreme Court, controlling Syrian immigration and potential jihadism, etc.—but I leave those to Michael Walsh, with whose list I fully concur. (For another amusing pro-Trump article with, believe it or not, an Aristotelian twist, see Robert C. Jeffrey's "The Magnificent Mr. Trump.")

So don't be ashamed when you go to vote for Trump, if you haven't already. Do so unabashedly.  You've got nothing to be embarrassed about. Hold your head high. You really are trying to bring our country back.

Finally,  this is the next to last entry in The Diary of a Mad Voter. (I'll be back with a final wrap-up when we know the results.) It's been a helluva ride, as they say, and I'm grateful to every reader, even, maybe especially, those who have attacked me on a nearly daily basis.  I'm also grateful to the trolls, particularly the paid ones, who have been kind enough through their clicks to pass some of the riches of George Soros to the coffers of PJ Media. There's poetic justice in that.

I was going to call this entry "The Mad Voter Finally Gets Mad" (as in angry).  But, like most of you, I'm well aware of the old saw—"Don't get mad, get even!"  So don't just sit there.  If you haven't, go vote... for Donald Trump.
