Make America great again by voting blue

This is our chance to change the moral compass of our country. It is a chance, for us, the citizens of America to speak loud and clear. But we all must speak — Christians, Jews, Muslims, Agnostics, Atheists, liberals, conservatives, Native Americans, lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender — because we are all citizens of America.

And, in order for our voices to be heard, we vote. This election we must vote blue.

I know many reading just responded, “How dare he tell me how to vote.” But this election isn’t about you or me, it’s about our country and what we will lave to our children, grandchildren and future generations.

It’s about women having a say over their own bodies. It’s about protection all people — sick, poor, people of color and the LGBTQ community. It’s about the Constitution.

My hurt feelings or your hurt feelings aren’t important. It’s our vote that’s important.

Those voting for a third-party candidate, I understand you want more choices, but now isn’t that time. A protest vote now is wasteful.

I remember a country that welcomed the masses that wanted to be free. I remember a country that held truth above fabrication or “alternative facts.” I remember a country that respected and cared for all its citizens.

To make America great against we must vote for people that have the values that we teach our children.
