I don’t want to talk about politics, but I have to say something:
Last night I stayed up a little later than I usually do because I was watching Hilary Clinton give her acceptance to her presidency nomination, making her the first woman in the history of the United States to be nominated by a major political party to be president. I usually don’t watch these event; this year has been the first one I have been paying so much attention to politics. This change is due to a few things:
- I can vote
- Puerto Rico needs a change
- The presidential election is too interesting
- If you don’t choose wisely it will bring chaos to all of us
- A woman is finally running
I know what I saw last night was a historical event, and I’m glad I stayed up to watch it, even if I won’t be able to do anything about this. I don’t have a vote on this and I don’t know if my voice even matters but I hope someone hears (or reads) me when I say it’s about time. It’s time women get the chance in this country, they get to be governors and part of the senate but not president? Why? People criticize everything, but if this was a man no one would be criticizing him so much, there have been some horrible men up there and people have given them the chance, why not her? Because she’s a her?
No, we can’t let this happen. Women have the right to vote but not to be elected? What happened to equality? I thought the U.S. gave everyone equal opportunity? Why can’t you give a woman who is prepared and has so much experience in politics the chance?
