Dear Trump Supporter,

I wanted to reach out to you on Super Tuesday and remind you that up until the moment when you cast your vote for Trump you have an opportunity to go back and rethink everything. Even if you’ve already voted for him the primaries you can still change your mind. Don’t vote blindly! Open your eyes and make the choice you truly believe is the best and most educated decision.

Nothing you’ve done can’t be undone.

You still have a chance to make the best decision for yourself and your nation, nothing is final until he’s actually President Elect.

Take the time to really think about what you’re doing. If you firmly believe in the man after you’ve educated yourself then by all means vote for him, that’s your right and frankly your responsibility. But you need to understand that you owe it to your nation and the rest of the world to vote for a leader you stand behind as a fully informed voter.

To those of you who say he is a leader, I can give you a long list of leaders who did horrible and disastrous things throughout our history.

Calling him a leader doesn’t make him the President this nation needs, it just means you’re following him. There’s a huge difference.

And while you’re following Mr Trump, take the time to look around at who’s walking alongside you.

“20% of Trump supporters found that disagreed with the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed all the slaves following the end of the American Civil War.

21% agreed that “whites were a superior race,”

70% wish the Confederate flag still flew above the statehouse,

and

38% of them wish the South had won the Civil War.

1/3 of Trump backers support banning LGBTQ people from entering the United States;

41% approve of banning non-citizen Muslims from entering the United States.”

Now that you’ve looked to your left, and to your right, do you still like who you see in front of you?

What about the fact that Trump has bashed millions of people because of race, religion, and creed but won’t condemn David Duke someone he knows to be a white supremacist and former leader of the KKK?

Please, as a fellow citizen I beg you to just take the time to objectively look at your candidates. I’m sure many of you have changed your mind about him already, you just haven’t figured it out yet. Don’t vote for him just because you’re afraid to change your mind. The rest of the world will thank you for it. We’ll welcome you back with open arms.

  1. You seem an intelligent person Jesse, I have a question.
    Do you consider cherry-picking the facts from statistics a right way to address things?

    Why are you so sure that anti-LGBTQ is something to dislike? As you see, 1/3 of people disagree with you on this one so radically, that they answered the way they did. Think about it;)

    And to tell you something about muslims, I live in Russian Federation and if you ask the same question here, more than 90% of people will answer the same way. Other 10 will be either muslims themself.
    If you’re intelligent enough to think of yourself as a competent person on subject of politics, consider reading about Islam from Quran, the very first book for any muslim. inb4 you edit this blog post and remove the line about Islam after that.

    Take care
