To The Daily Sun,
Why I am voting for Donald Trump:
When the presidential campaign started for this most recent election, I was truly perplexed on who would get my vote. I listened to most of the candidates and the one that seems to make the most sense, so far, is Donald Trump. Although, he does not have the most eloquent way of expressing himself, the words that he says make a lot of sense.
America, the USA, is getting "screwed," to use his terms, by most of the world. We protect our allies, give countless aid to all countries (even countries that hate us), we have mostly open borders to our North and South, millions of welfare is given to non-citizens-including social security, and the list goes on.
Back in the mid-1950s, both of my parents immigrated to this great country from Ireland. My mother had a sponsor, my Uncle Martin, and my father signed up for four years in the U.S. Army to access citizenship. They both hoped to gain better life. I am all for legal immigrants, but somehow, the U.S. has lost its way on this issue.
Perhaps someone like Trump, who is not a career politician, can make some sense of this whole ordeal.
He is also for a favorable tax code for manufacturing. I know that this is the economic engine for any country and I think it should be a priority. If you hear Mr. Trump, as I did in Concord, about three weeks ago, then you know he has a good understanding of what is going on globally.
He is not in this for his own personal gain, but only to "Make America Great Again."
