I'm a Latino and I voted Trump
Over the years, ever since Trump took office, I was quite the skeptic. At first, I didn't support him, but as time expanded, and as I realized the atrocious narrative-shifting game that the mainstream media was doing, I decided to shift my support to Trump.
Censorship of conservative voices is real. Censorship of libertarians has been a constant for many years (I don't just mean on social media but even in national debates). I've witnessed the blatant angst that the left view for capitalists. Being a child of a father who had to flee a communist uprising in Peru with his parents and siblings, the attacks against the "right-wing" don't sit well with me. The murder of a Patriot Prayer rally goer in Oregon was honestly the last straw.
If you know me, you know I've been a staunch libertarian for many years, mostly sympathetic to the Anarcho-capitalist purists. If you follow me, you know I was a MAJOR critic of Donald Trump, yet even with my criticism, I see the silver lining with keeping Trump in office. There are many reasons as to why I am opposed to Trump, but none of those things are "deal breakers" for me.
What I am strongly supportive of:
- Looser immigration policies with proper vetting for regions that have significant terrorist activities, such as some nations within the Middle East.
- Fewer economic regulations and restrictions on hiring practices.
- Abolishing many tax laws.
- Ending the drug war.
- Defending cryptocurrency liberty and privacy.
Clearly, with some of these things I support, Donald Trump doesn't necessarily defend all of the same things I do. I chose Trump mostly because he is strong, and he is not afraid to take on the leftist-liberal elite establishment. The biggest deal-breaker and the one thing that solidified my support for Trump were the left-wing riots, the blatant attacks against my Spanish ancestors from the "woke" Black Lives Matter movement, and of course, the clear pro-racism ideology that is "critical race theory" which asserts that because I have white skin, that makes me privileged and as such it should make me guilty for what my people have done in history...
I am not guilty. I am proud of my Spanish ancestors, just as I am proud of my native ancestors. It hurts these anti-white racists for me to say I am proud of my mixed lineage; That I am proud of my Spanish ancestors. It also hurts them when I say, "I am proud to be an American."
Regardless of the results of the election, I will support capitalism, support free trade, and defend my right to free speech. No one will take that away from me.
