LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country where the Democratic Party has once again made history, with their choice of a candidate for POTUS. We Democrats realized that our great nation had been governed far too long by an unbroken string of old white men. Our nation is extremely diverse in the ethnic makeup of our citizens. Since we were founded on the principal of “freedom of religion,” people from all over the world have gravitated here seeking to find a home in a country that does not persecute its citizens because of their religious beliefs, and encourages all of our citizens to participate in the governing of our nation by voting for the candidates that best reflect their own personal desires.

In 2008, Democrats first broke the string of nothing but old white men presidential candidates by nominating and electing a black man. In 2016, Democrats continued their acknowledgement that our country is made up of more than just old white men, by nominating a member of the most historically persecuted group in the world. Women! The party of Old White Men, namely Republicans, has refused to realize the contributions of any group other than their own, and have now found themselves saddled with the most ridiculous candidate ever selected to run for the highest office in our land.

Donald Trump hates everyone who is not a white Christian man, and constantly voices his rejection of Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims and Women. If we are to survive as a nation, we must reject such outdated thinking and focus on electing candidates from the party that realizes our nation is much more than just old white men, and that all segments deserve representation. Namely Democrats! Vote BLUE at every level to make sure that all citizens are represented by our government equally.
