I’ve never been one to fully stand with one particular party on all of their issues and stances. There are laws and bills put forward by both Republicans and Democrats that I can often stand behind, or stand against. Whether it’s fiscal responsibility, gun control measures or family rights there are multiple view points and reasons why we vote the way we do.
Recently, I came across this article, highlighting why some LGBT community members are pro-Trump, which immediately confused me. As much as I don’t want to vote based on one issue or area (I value looking at a candidate’s full plan, ideas and past) I can’t look past the fact that Trump has aligned himself with Governor Pence.
Pence just spent the past year advocating and signing into law a bill that directly discriminated against our community. What if this man takes this plan with him to DC? Marriage equality isn’t exactly “equal” if a business has the right to turn my husband and I away if they don’t believe we should be married in the first place. I can’t imagine having to explain to my child why a restaurant or a business just asked us to leave. Equality means equal and I fear Gays for Trump don’t realize that Trump-Pence isn’t for Gays.Tags: Donald Trump, Election Day, LGBT, LGBTQ, Mike Pence, Politics, Presidential Election
