I voted for Trump because of the Supreme Court.

Abortion is a big issue for me and I'd very much like to see Roe v Wade overturned. Even if he was lying about pro-life judges for me the choice was easy because Hillary was pro-choice.

On a lesser note, with D.C., Wall Street, Hollywood, the news and music industries clearly favoring Clinton and her scheming ways I thought of my vote as a middle finger. To them and anyone who says "well that's just the way things are done" when excusing their tactics.

-establishment figures HATED him
-not in the globalist insider group
-nationalist
-deep enough pockets of his own that globalist money cant buy his
-SCOTUS
-first amendment
-second amendment
-fourth amendment
-no ww3 with russia



and the big one that ALWAYS gets violated by those who think the General Welfare and Commerce clauses means the gov can make any rule it wants,

the 9th amendment
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

which is precisely where the general welfare and commerce clauses have gone.

I did not vote for Clinton or Trump, I did not buy into Hope and Change back in 2008 and I most certainly did not buy into Make America Great Again.

Just as a personal question did it factor in for you that they might overturn Obergefell v. Hodges far easier than Roe v. Wade? Is that a bonus or a necessary evil in your eyes?

I figured he would choose good advisors that he trusts to give him good instructions and that they would have less of a corrupt agenda than Hillary and her advisors.

Voted for Trump to effectively put an end to the era of the SJW and the regressive left. Their tears have been delicious

I don't think any judge would want to be responsible for having couples fork over their marriage certificates and change tax statutes. Just like I'm not afraid of anyone losing the right to vote as a result of a conservative court.

Why do you not believe that when Pence stated that it was one of his primary goals in the election? Bluffs? I mean yes or no doesn't change my opinion I'm just wondering how you square it. You believe he will get done what you want done and don't believe he'll do the other stuff you don't agree with? If so then that is up to you. I am just attempting to understand.

I understand people who voted for Trump who are not concerned with that liberal nonsense. I understand their thought process. I don't agree with it. I understand most people who voted for HIllary. Again I don't agree but I understand. I do not understand the lukewarm centrists and independents that voted for him despite supporting marriage equality. The only thing I can come up with is that in the booth they just said "fuck it"

This was big to me too. I would call myself a moderate liberal. Slightly left of the middle. I believe in freedom for everyone, to an extent. However, many SJWs were pushing my patience far beyond that extent and I felt that voting Trump could push the extremely left leaning scales somewhat back to the right.

Aside from that, the immigration and healthcare issues were big. Sorry, but I am just not feeling Obama-care, and while if met with a Muslim face-to-face I would have nothing against them, I really don't want to import droves of refugees and have the US experience what Germany, Sweden, and France did.

I don't live by the border so I have no opinions on the illegal Mexican issue. I like Mexicans, they are really nice people.
