Why I can never vote for this ‘man’

*SOURCE*
[EXCERPTS.]

My name is Donna, I am a Christian wife, mother and I have found my voice. I have to tell my story, as hard as it is, for those women who either aren’t believed or are having problems finding their voice.

I was brought up as a ministers daughter, knowing right from wrong, but at 16 years old, I did what most rebellious kids do, find out why certain fruit shouldn’t be touched.

I am an artist and went to ‘School of Visual Arts’, it seemed from being a geek in high school I blossomed. I attended the parties, hung out with the good kids and bad, but I always, always was in charge of my body and saying, “No!”.
It was 1978, the annual Halloween party. As you can imagine the crazy artist costumes were either fully clothes or barely. Sex was in the bathrooms behind closed doors, which I did not participate. I had a boyfriend that I thought was respectful, but that was my naive mind. I wanted to believe someone wanted me just as I was, cute Donna from the ‘burbs’.

It was getting late and the path trains were not running on a regular schedule for Hoboken, so his buddy had a Volkswagen 1960’s van and offered to take me home with my boyfriend. Of course I said great! My problem in college was trusting too many people which was my downfall.

I lived in NJ and it was about a 30 minute ride without traffic. My boyfriend and I were in the back and I didn’t feel anything was wrong, until his buddy took a strange detour towards a deserted area where trucks were parked. I looked at my boyfriend, who at this time was drunk and high from smoking pot, I said, “Why are we stopping?”

He said, “Come one you know you want it!”

I was horrified and said, “No I don’t! Get me home!”

He ignored me and threw me to the back of the wagon while his buddy got out and strolled around outside.

He started urgently kissing me everywhere, while I continually objected. “Why are you doing this?” He didn’t respond and just kept groping me. He took my pants off, and forced sex on me. I was crying and nothing seemed to matter. After he was done I crawled into a fetal position and said, “Why did you do this?” He finally mumbled, “Because I wanted it and your my girlfriend, I deserve it, I don’t need your permission”!…

…I went to the police and got no help whatsoever. “Was it rape?” They asked. I was 18, naive…I always thought rape included violence, which he wasn’t, but I wasn’t thinking right. I started crying and said, “I don’t know, but I didn’t want it!” The police, in my town said, “We’ll make a report but unless it was rape there’s not a whole lot we can do. Have you discussed this with your parents?” I said no because I knew they’d be upset, and I didn’t want to hurt them.

Here’s my point, when a woman is sexually assaulted, when she says NO and her wishes are ignored, her mind isn’t thinking correctly. She’s afraid, scared, angry at herself for allowing this to happen and angry that no one believes or willing to get involved. On my end I never saw that guy again, and my ‘paperwork’ went no where.

The United States is voting for President, the highest position in the land, and Donald Trump has conveniently been heard berating women, calling it “locker room talk” when real locker room men have said, “I’ve never heard or spoken this kind of talk.” He’s pushed off the women who have accused him of sexually assaulting them he has made them look like HE IS the victim. When the reporter for People Magazine said she was cornered for her interview of him when she went to Mar-a-Largo, and against her wishes he started kissing and groping her. He comes back today and says, “She’s lying and look at her! Come on, she’s too unattractive for me!”

Donald Trump is the most disrespectful, narcissistic, insulting womanizer I’ve ever heard speak. He has audio of him saying, “I can grab anyone by the pussy.” WHO SAYS THAT!

I am only writing this for all women that have been sexually assaulted, ignored and dismissed. Donald Trump is not only a dangerous man, but his words, behavior and the surrogates that follow him are allowing his lewd, crude and disgusting behavior to continue. Where are we going America? Why does he feel like he can say and do all this? I can tell you that in a few words, because he has no morals, values, he’s an adulterer, and committed these actions while married.

In closing, my situation has been coming back in flashbacks when I hear this information. I continue to push it back. It’s hard but I’m a lot older and wiser. This posting took a lot of thought and prayer. Without my faith I don’t think I could have written it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are a Nation that is being made fun of by other countries to even think of voting for this pig.We have voices. Make your voice heard! Don’t be afraid of the cult like following he has, they have blinders on and nothing I say will take them off.

As a Christian Jesus sat among the poor, the tax collectors, the prostitutes…WITH DIGNITY TOWARDS THEM!God forgives, but when a man who ‘claims’ he’s seen the light says he needs no forgiveness, I’m sorry Donald, that’s the first thing you say when Jesus enters your heart.

America we need to fight back…find your voice as I have!

15 Reasons Trump Is a Liberal — and a Lunatic Conspiracy Theorist

…for those people who might be clinging to some tiny shard of hope that the presumptive Republican nominee now has coherent, conservative principles despite his well-documented left-wing past, I present to you the following non-exhaustive list of liberal, extreme, and outright insane things he’s said in this campaign. Let’s begin:

1. Trump supported government-provided health care. Doubt me? Here’s the key exchange from a September 27, 2015, interview on 60 Minutes:

Donald Trump: There’s many different ways, by the way. Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say because a lot of times they say, “No, no, the lower 25 percent that can’t afford private.”

But – Scott Pelley: Universal health care?

Donald Trump: I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.

Scott Pelley: Make a deal? Who pays for it?

Donald Trump: The government’s gonna pay for it. But we’re going to save so much money on the other side. But for the most it’s going to be a private plan and people are going to be able to go out and negotiate great plans with lots of different competition with lots of competitors with great companies and they can have their doctors, they can have plans, they can have everything.
2. Trump supported raising taxes. And he keeps supporting raising taxes. Again, here he is in that same 60 Minutes interview: Scott Pelley: Who are you going to raise taxes on? Donald Trump: If you look at actual raise, some very wealthy are going to be raised. Some people that are getting unfair deductions are going to be raised. But, overall, it’s going to be a tremendous incentive to grow the economy and we’re going to take in the same or more money. And I think we’re going to have something that’s going to be spectacular. 3. Trump supported large-scale touchback amnesty for illegal immigrants. Yes, the man who wants to build a wall and deport ’em all also said this: I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal. . . . A lot of these people are helping us . . . and sometimes it’s jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal. Also note that he buys the “jobs Americans won’t do” justification for large-scale, low-skill immigration:

VIDEO HERE.

4. Trump is running to Hillary’s left on trade — expressing greater skepticism about the virtues of free markets than even the Democratic front-runner.

5. He thinks it’s “wonderful” when the government seizes private property and gives it to powerful corporations. In a move that should trouble anyone who purports to trust his judgment on judicial nominations, Trump praised the Supreme Court’s decision in Kelo v. City of New London, a case that upheld the right of the government to take private property from one private landowner and transfer it to another private landowner. In other words, if Trump had his way, the government would be given the power to turn your home into a Target parking lot.

6. As long as we’re on the topic of judicial nominations, let’s not forget that he said his leftist, pro-abortion sister would be a “phenomenal” Supreme Court justice.

7. And then of course there’s his scorn for the First Amendment. During this campaign he’s expressed a desire to “open up” libel laws: One of the things I’m going to do if I win — and I hope we do and we’re certainly leading — I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money. We’re going to open up those libel laws. So when the New York Times writes a hit piece which is a total disgrace or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected.

8. Trump has now signaled support for job-destroying minimum-wage increases, in a breathtakingly brazen flip-flop: STEPHANOPOULOS: Minimum wage — all through the primaries, you were against an increase. Now you’re saying you’re looking at it. So what’s your bottom line on this?

TRUMP: Well, I am looking at it and I haven’t decided in terms of numbers. But I think people have to get more. STEPHANOPOULOS: But that’s a change from where you were during —

TRUMP: It’s not a very (INAUDIBLE) . . .

STEPHANOPOULOS: — the primary.

TRUMP: Well, sure it’s a change. I’m allowed to change. You need flexibility, George, whether it’s a tax plan where you’re going to — where you know you’re going to negotiate. But we’re going to come up with something.

9. He keeps praising Planned Parenthood, saying that it does “good work for millions of women” and slamming the “so-called conservatives” who disagree.

10. Trump not only expressed support for gender-neutral bathrooms, he used corporate-progressive bullying to justify his position:

Q: Tell us your views of LGBT and how you plan to be inclusive. Please speak about the North Carolina bathroom law.

A: “North Carolina did something that was very strong and they’re paying a big price and there’s a lot of problems,” said Trump, who would have left things as they were. “There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate, there has been so little trouble.” He said that instead, the new law has brought tremendous economic “strife” for the state, including various boycotts by entertainers and major businesses. “Leave it the way it is.”

11. Going farther than any Democratic candidate, Trump has advanced the completely discredited conspiracy theory that George W. Bush deliberately lied about weapons of mass destruction to justify the war in Iraq:

Trump: You do whatever you want. You call it whatever you want. I wanna tell you: They lied.

John Dickerson: Okay.

Trump: They said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction. [NOTE: YES THERE WERE WMD’S IN IRAQ. DT LIED AND LIES.]

12. In the category of non-ideological craziness, Trump actually expressed a belief that he could defeat ISIS by “bomb[ing] the sh*t out of them” and then sending in Exxon to mop up:

ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because of the oil that they took away — they have some in Syria, they have some in Iraq. I would bomb the sh*t out of them. I would just bomb those suckers, and that’s right — I’d blow up the pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, I’d blow up every single inch, there would be nothing left. And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there, and in two months — you ever see these guys, how good they are, the great oil companies? — they’ll rebuild it brand new . . . and I’ll take the oil.

13. And who can possibly forget his oft-repeated vow that he would order American troops to commit war crimes by deliberately targeting terrorists’ families and torturing detainees, followed by this chilling promise:

VIDEO HERE.

14. Trump has repeatedly parroted the Democratic line about 9/11, completely ignoring or glossing over the failures of two successive administrations, including the Clinton administration’s wholly inadequate response to the African embassy bombings and the near-sinking of the USS Cole.

15. Finally, there is this now-infamous bit of lunacy, which can’t be stressed enough: Trump tied Ted Cruz’s father to John F. Kennedy’s assassin:

“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being — you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump said Tuesday during a phone interview with Fox News. “What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up. They don’t even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it.” “I mean, what was he doing — what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting?” Trump continued. “It’s horrible.” Trump recently declared that, “This is called the Republican party, it’s not called the Conservative party.”

That may be the single-most accurate statement he’s made in the course of the campaign. But if the Republican party isn’t conservative, what does it stand for? The list above provides a clue to Trump’s answer: It stands for whatever will put him in power. And to think there are still Republicans who ask me to trust that Trump will do the right thing. The only thing I trust is that Trump will do what he wants, when he wants, and that neither principle nor reason will stand in his way.

IN CLOSING…An Open Letter…

 

*On May 16 I felt a real pulling on my heart to write a letter to Reince Priebus, Chairman of the GOP. I felt he was allowing a candidate to pull his strings in this election year. He allowed a mean spirited, racist, candidate to publish lies about a certain conservative candidate that did nothing to him except be in the 2016 election and get caught in the middle.

Since the days of Lincoln, and before, there have always been political mudslinging in election years, but in over 100 years, there has never been the downright disrespect by one candidate.

I was tired of tweeting my anger, I was tired of writing the same things over and over again. I was tired of being called names, and nothing I or others were objecting to were making a dent. We were literally going back in time when prejudice was rampant and acceptable. We were acting like brothers against brother, race against race, and one man was not standing up to this. I had to call him out on it.

This is the letter I wrote on May 16, 2016 to Reince Preibus. It was never acknowledged by him, just social media. If you haven’t read it, I hope you do with he understanding that this is 2016, not 1936.

We live in a free world and, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
=======

May 16, 2016

Dear Mr. Priebus

My name is Donna McGuinness. I live in GA but lived in NJ/NY area for many years and while going to school. NJ was always my revolving door but it was home. The reason I’m saying this in the beginning of this letter is because I am what Donald Trump calls, an immigrant.

My father was always an evangelical preacher who, like my Mum, were born and raised in England. My entire family is from the UK and I was also born in Watford, outside of London. We traveled all over the British Isles while my dad preached in various churches. We never had a ‘house’. We learned to live in whatever circumstance that were presented. Whether it was a family that housed us for a night in a bedroom, or a floor; wherever we placed our head was our ‘house’ that particular night.

While we lived in England we also traveled in the United States. We couldn’t afford to fly from one state to another so we bought a 1965 Dodge Green Van. The guts of it were taken out and my sisters and I would play, eat and sleep in the back of it, while traveling to one church after another. I personally have moved in England and the United States more than 48 times, it was what one does when your family is serving the Lord….

Without the United Sates, England could have been part of Hitlers world. They helped us and we are alive to tell everyone. Learn everything you can about this country, it’s never going to be a communist country like Russia or Germany is right now. This is your NEW HOME!” With a tear in his eye, he wrapped me around his arms and said, “You will never go without here…”

Mr. Priebus, I’ve always believed in my adopted country. I always believed that my country would always stand up for us when others let us down. I remember Watergate in 1973 and remember the bi-partisan stance that every Senator and Congressman took regarding Nixon and his lies. I remember the greatest President of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, telling Gorbachov to “Take down this wall!” and because of that wonderful man, the communist countries began to listen.

We can go back and pick other great Presidents too, but I want to say a few things about how I believe as many other people believe, Donald Trump will never be a great President. He has the largest following of neo Nazis, racist haters, the KKK and other groups he refuses to denounce. He has been given more free air time @foxnews more than any other candidate. He refuses to release his tax returns, he calls every candidate any name he wants, breaking Reagans 11th Commandment. He promises his cult of hundreds of thousands, things he has already gone back on. He told the news that Raphael Cruz, a wonderful man, was involved in JFK assassination, which technically is a ‘battery’ charge, the day before the Indiana Primary. Then 2 days later said he made it up to get a rise out of everyone! He has divided our Nation, brother against brother, Christian against Christian, to see them drool over him. He has lied about the only descent conservative born again Christian man we had running since Ronald Reagan, Ted Cruz. He placed lies about him in the National Enquirer, which has never come to fruition. He called him the Zodiac Killer, when technically that killer was killing before Cruz was born! He said on May 11, 2016, “I love debt!! The US treasury can make more money, come on?!” He knows nothing about the constitution yet wants to appoint Supreme Court Justices? He claims the delegate process is the worst thing ever, yet according to his tweets in 2012, he understood it completely when Mitt Romney was running. He puts suggestions in his followers ears and they take it upon themselves to make terroristic threats against delegates in any state he looses delegates. When his followers read his tweets, they then call the delegate, then place their home information including phone numbers, addresses, and pictures of each delegate and their family. The family is then threatened with either bodily harm or statements telling each delegate “not to show up at the convention or your life is in danger.” Yet I think the worst case against him is, he hates Jews! He has retweeted ‘White Genocide’ Jew haters showing cartoons of Jews being thrown in ovens and why they are the ‘filth of this world’, while laughing at the cartoons! His following on tweeter is over 70,000 KKK White Supremacists, and not one time have they been denounced by him nor the GOP! 

This is a job interview for the highest office in the land! He is not only the worst candidate ever running for office, but most of our Senators, Congress and yourself, conveniently closes their ears and eyes to this MAN!

Yes, I am part of the conservative movement, but Ted Cruz wasn’t even given a chance to ever defend himself on anything said against him or his family because the GOP never stepped in. You never took a stance against Trump. You never said, “Donald this has to stop, politics are one thing but destroying a mans reputation is another”. None of you did that except Rep Lee and Sen Sasse, I’m sure there are more, but no one thought to even stop this childish behavior before it got out of hand.

On Twitter the Ted Cruz is not the enemy, but daily we are fighting the enemy, the cult of trump! We are being called disgusting names, threatening our Iives because we don’t want trump as Pres, and worst the constant harassment that Twitter doesn’t do a thing about. You are not only allowing a man to presumptively become the next Republican candidate to run against Hilary Clinton, but you have allowed a man to do, say, and act like a spoiled child to run in the November election!

What year are we in? 1936 where Hitler said, did, and acted any way he wanted to and Germany wound up the worst country post WWII because of his actions? Or are we in 2016 where we listened to Martin Luther King, Jr. and one man changed the course of the all white Senate and their prejudices.

I know I speak for many, and I know that when Reagan was asked in the 60’s why he left the Democratic Party he said, “I didn’t leave the Party, the Party left me”. That is our stance. We can say #NeverTrump 1000 times a day, but until you realize that you have created a monster and until that monster owns up to his ways, which he won’t, we will never vote for the GOP candidate in November 2016. We won’t be sitting on our hands, we will either be voting #WriteInTedCruz, or Evan mcMullin, and proudly do it. If HRC wins the general election, so be it. We have been trying to tell you this for months and not one time have you acknowledged us or even said something about it in the most bias media ever!

We are fed up, upset, angry, hurt …and I will not vote for a man that has absolutely no qualifications for the President of the United States of America!

I came to this country a proud 8 year old. I grew up proud of my new adopted country. I raised my 5 children always telling them “this is the greatest country in the world, be thankful and grateful for everything you have in the US since other countries are right now fighting for what we have always had”. I did that as a married woman, as well as a single mom in 1987. I will always say we live in a country that is greater than any other Nation in this world. ‘Make America Great Again’ was never Donald Trumps saying, it was Ronald Reagan’s political wording back in 1980 when we were fighting the Iran Hostage situation and loosing a lot from he previous administration. My point is, when you have a human being who can say and do what he wants, believes he quotes from himself, when the quotes are coming from Karl Marx. When the only countries endorsing him are from North Korea or Russia? When he says, “I wouldn’t put it past myself to nuke a country?” There is a problem here!

So in closing Mr. Priebus, you have allowed a creation of the worst candidate since the GOP started with Lincoln. The GOP died on May 3, 2016. A 3rd party candidate will not be Ted Cruz and won’t beat HRC. What I wanted to explain to you was a letter from an immigrant that Donald Trump would probably love to deport back to the UK. I may be a mother of 5 children and I may be one voice, but I am a voice among many other voices, we are united in one thing and one thing only, we will never vote for a fraud and liar, Donald Trump and we will never vote for a democratic liberal woman Hilary Clinton, because one equals the other, and neither is the lesser of 2 evils, they are both evils.

May God Bless this great country that has blessed us, given us everything we have ever wanted and needed. She has also been a disappointment to us as well, but I don’t believe we have to settle for less. I don’t believe our forefathers fought tyranny against the British and then walked away, because through all the things they didn’t have, the guns they didn’t have or even shoes to fight in. Their fight was for freedom! Freedom, so that one day the generations that followed would be proud to say, “We were loved so much, that we as individuals were fought for, just like God fought for His love….”

Respectively,

Donna McGuinness (@donnasfineart)

    The Republican Party is the biggest culprit in the room. They are so out of touch with their base they might as well be on another planet. It boggles my mind that their platform is conservative but that they would choose Jeb as their fair haired boy to carry it out.

    I was talking to a fellow senior at the gym the other day about the benefits of working out. He said the benefit is not that we improve, but that we just slow the rate of decline. That’s what I have been doing for years by voting Republican, just hoping to slow the rate of decline.

    When it comes to health and longevity, slowing the rate of decline is important. When it comes to voting, reversing the decline and improving is important. I am through with voting Republican and hoping for another Eisenhower or Reagan.
