Prior to my late conversion about a month before the election, you couldn’t find too many people who did not want Trump to be our Republican nominee more than me. I still have the memes in my downloads to prove it. Then one day I had an epiphany. My guy Cruz was out. We were left with four choices.

Trump, Hillary, someone else or don’t vote. I couldn’t ‘not vote’. So that left Trump, Hillary or someone else. “God, what am I supposed to do?”, I asked. Then I asked myself, “What if Obama had not beeupside-down-marinen elected in 2008 or again in 2012?”

Would our economy be better? Would some of the people burned alive in cages or beheaded be alive today? Would Kate Steinle and some of the other people needlessly killed be alive had those illegals not been here but in Mexico instead?

Would the police officers who’ve been killed by the BLM narrative be at home with their families today? It’s something we’ll never know. The survivors of these victims will never know either…because Obama did win in 2008 and again in 2012.

Those wins set in motion the things we’re seeing today…so it wasn’t just “a vote”. No, it was much more than that. It was a matter of real people and the aftermath of decisions people made on those election days in 2008 and 2012.

On November 8, 2016, my vote would affect the outcome of people’s lives around the world in ways I can only imagine. So God, my principles chose life and a better future for anyone who in that future would have found themselves living or about to be killed under the long lasting affects of a Hillary Clinton presidency.

My personal principles regarding Trump’s sometimes offensive behavior had to take a back seat to some principles that I felt were much more important than the here and now.
