Here are the reasons I’m voting Donand Trump for president

Over the continued path of our presidential election, I viewed the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate running for the presidency and I have determined who I will support. 

Donald J. Trump is an example of the American dream and success story. He exemplifies that if one works hard and remains persistent, they too can be successful. 

Mr. Trump started his career at his father’s real estate company. One of his first projects was to purchase a foreclosed apartment complex in Ohio. His investment wits and strategy soared the occupancy rate from 34 percent to 100 percent for that complex. He has been in the business of making something that many considered to be a loss, into something great. 

His business and investment skills changed the skyline of America’s largest city, New York City. His success in business has transitioned to politics as he successfully defeated 16 other competitors for the Republican nomination. 

Meanwhile, Secretary Hillary Clinton struggled to defeat a 75 year-old socialist from one of America’s smallest states. I guess Debbie Wasserman Schultz is good for something.

He is a government outsider. As such, his development projects put decent, hardworking Americans to work. He has been a better job creator than our current leaders. 

From football and boxing sports to beauty pageants, and from television entertainment to golf courses — he simply has the Midas touch. 

This example of success is needed in our country, particularly our government. Secretary Clinton has had a long career shrouded in scandal and corruption as she has unsuccessfully tried to claw her way back into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Leaving our diplomatic consulate in Libya unsecured doesn’t make me believe that she will make America safe. 

Hillary’s refusal to use the term “radical Islam” makes me feel like she doesn’t take America’s security seriously. Talking about women’s health on one hand doesn’t make her a champion, while on the other hand she has fought to discredit the women that her husband has sexually harassed. As a woman, I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton. 

I have no faith in the current Washington establishment of which Mrs. Clinton is part of. We need an outsider that can shake up Washington in the best interest of the United States. I believe Mr. Trump will nominate a justice to the U.S. Supreme Court who will protect religious liberties and restrain the left’s appetite for eroding traditional family values. He would also nominate a justice to the court who will uphold the Second Amendment, a right which President Barack Obama has tried and failed to erode. 

Washington’s elite has been slow to improve our economy and they refuse to relax the tax code on the middle class to increase consumer spending, reduce government regulations to improve commerce, and relax energy restrictions to ease consumer’s energy costs. 

Four years of Mrs. Clinton, will be 12 years of Mr. Obama. We cannot afford to let a leftist retain the White House beyond Jan. 20, 2017. 

Middletowners, aren’t you tired of Washington telling you what you should do with your money? Aren’t you tired of Washington dithering, while our immigration system needs to be reformed? Oh by the way, how is that Obamacare working out for you?

Donald will make our country safe again by securing our borders and supporting our law enforcement personnel. Donald will make our country great again by reforming the tax code, reforming the Veterans Administration that is broken and not meeting our veterans’ needs, and repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a system more affordable that has a better price transparency for consumers. 

Donald will end the elitist Washingtonians party and make the government work for the people. He will be our voice, he will represent our interests. 

That is why on Nov. 8, my vote will be for Donald J. Trump for president of the United States.
