For the first time in my life I have been paying attention to the elections. I’m paying attention to the governor candidates in Puerto Rico and I can’t help but pay attention to the presidential candidates in the states; and I’m sick of it.
I just want this to be over. I want it to be over because I’m sick of worrying about who wins. If for some reason she doesn’t win the presidency… I don’t even want to think about what will happen. And for Puerto Rico, I just hope everybody puts their parties aside and picks the only man who makes sense, who is speaking out for everyone and is a leader.
I didn’t want to add more into the politics conversation, but that is everything I see everywhere and I can’t get it out of my head. I can’t make strong arguments because I don’t know enough to make a strong argument, but I’m speaking about how I feel going into this mess for the first time in my life and I’m glad that this year I have the option to vote for the governor who I truly believe can make a difference, not just the one I hate less.
I can’t vote in the states, but that whole situation over there is like a horror movie, well one of the candidates, who shall not be named. A lot of people are scared, others I don’t know what they’re thinking or they’re just brain washed, but I’m very scared of he who shall not be named. Why? Because I realized I’m pretty much everything he hates and doesn’t respect: I’m a disabled latin woman who is on the road to being a journalist. If things are bad in Puerto Rico now, I don’t even want to think about how they will be if the right people don’t win.
Please make the right decision.
