Love Trumps Hate – Casting My Presidential Vote

In 2008, I enthusiastically voted for Barack Obama for president. In fact, I was first in line (with my brother) at his election night party in Grant Park, Chicago. Go ahead and Google it, I’ll wait.

Though I didn’t agree with everything Barack did over the years, I appreciated his leadership style and if he could/were running again, I’d vote for him…I guess I’ll just have to wait for Michelle to run :-).

This presidential election has been unprecedented in so many ways. It’s been almost impossible to filter through the noise of false propaganda in both main media and online.

In forming my decision on who to vote for for president, I relied on Politico.com and FactCheck.org as the best un-bias reporting on the issues and historical governing experience of the candidates. I also relied on the feedback from people within my network that I respect and trust.

After processing all the information, I’m voting for Hillary Clinton for president and invite you to do the same. She has the best experience, temperament, judgement, and character to lead our country.

America’s diversity is our foundation and so if you don’t agree with me, I still encourage you, as a fellow democratic citizen, to cast your vote tomorrow and show the world why we are the greatest nation on earth.
