I was an Ostrich, not anymore

Meaning, I used to have my head in the sand and paid attention to the mainstream media, and not anymore!  But first a quote...

To anger a conservative, lie to him.
To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.
-Teddy Roosevelt

This is not meant to be a political post, though some (a lot?) might get offended. Read at your own risk and please don't shoot the messenger.  I am also feeling fine, no mental issues, no weapons of mass, or personal, destruction, no heart attack risk, no underage pictures, no poisoned food, and all three cats are doing fine.

I am NOT a Republican, I am NOT a Democrat, I am an INDEPENDENT voter, and I strive to learn as much of the truth as possible.  This is so I can vote with my conscience intact.  To do this have had to search alternative media, and even then, sometimes the alternative media is clearly super biased in favor of one candidate or another.

Am not saying everything I write below is the truth, far from it, but it adds a lot of doubt in my mind to how good one of the candidates are.  However, if even a small portion is true then that candidate still isn't worthy of my vote.

At this point, I am proud to state that:

I am not voting for Hillary Clinton
Nor am I a "Trumper"
I want the best President for the United States
Be it male, female, native american, white, pink, blue, purple...
I really want a female president, just not sHillary

Am still not overly sure who my vote is going towards, maybe Trump, maybe Jill Stein, maybe someone else.  Will figure it out Tuesday morning at the polls.  I've voted Democrat, Republican, and third party in the past.

Below is why I am not voting Hillary.  Please at least skim the bulleted list.

Most of this is credit to r/The_Donald, who, despite attempts at censorship (by Reddit itself, CTR, and others) are still getting information out.  Granted, they are very biased themselves, but better than the mainstream media (more about them later).  Credit also to this website, which visited while writing this.

A very honorable mention to WikiLeaks!!  Despite Assange having his internet privileges cut off (questionably I might add), the information is still getting out.
  • In no particular order
  • Plans to support TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership)..  BAD BAD BAD
    • very secretive trade deal
    • Corporations can sue governments for impinging on profits

    • Obscuring pro Trump content
    • None of it is fair (in my opinion)
    • Algorithms changed to suppress pro Trump content (Reddit specifically)
    • This is a big one for me.  Anytime things are censored such as this, that just breeds ill will and stinks of many other things.  It would be one thing if they allowed mostly equal discussion but they don't seem to want that at all

  • Hillary accepted foreign money for use in her presidential campaign
    • Saudi Arabia
    • Germany
    • George Soros

  • Coordination with SuperPACS (illegal?)
  • Insiders admit Hillary and Bill "lie a lot" and "have the worst judgement"
  • Insiders also admit to a "character problem"
  • Hillary steals furniture, silverware, etc from White House and the State Department
    • If she takes furniture, even after returning it, this just doesn't bode well with me
  • Tim Kaine picked as VP in 2015
  • Hillary's campaign uses dead Americans for a "bit of moral outrage"
  • Campaign assisting with fake Anti-Trump protests
  • George Soros's connection with potential voting fraud
    • As well as electronic voting machines in 16 states
    • He's a very big Hillary campaign donor
  • An ordinary person explaining why he switched away from Hillary (many others too)
  • List of major papers that support Hillary, when in the past they've (almost) always supported Republican
  • Former Republican presidents pledging support to Hillary (strange?)
  • DOJ collusion with Clinton campaign

  • Reports that Hillary is linked to child traffickers (loosely?) from Haiti, or thereabouts
  • Bill took flights on a convicted child molesters private plane, with underage models on board
    • Many other mentions of pedophelia in WikiLeaks e-mails
  • President Obama lied about not knowing about Hillary's "secret" email server
  • Some Trump accusers were paid $500K to accuse trump of misconduct
  • Homeland Security Chairman, Michael McCaul, says Hillary committed Treason

  • George Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM, who doesn't vote so he can report it as he sees it, once said that he wasn't going to mention anything about Hillary as "his mother told him, if don't have anything nice to say about someone...."

As you can see, from what I have read, there is a lot of speculation. Am unsure if it's all true though where there's smoke, there's fire.  Here are my sources again: r/The_Donald, this websiteWikiLeaks

Now, while Trump isn't perfect, he's not a politician (and not convinced I'll vote for him).  He is brash, unpredictable, and full of himself, but he's passionate about the country, and about the people.  I only bring up the following as an example for what Hillary could do to possibly change part of my opinion about her and her overall policies.

Trump recently published a guideline for his first 100 days in office when he spoke at Gettysburg.  While I don't agree with everything, a lot of it is much needed!  Have included some of it below.

Day one activities:
  1. propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
  2. a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
  3. a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
  4. a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
  5. a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
  6. a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

Trump will also begin the following:

    1. FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
    2. SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
    3. THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
    4. FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
    5. FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
    6. SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
    7. SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure
              Can read his whole contract with the American voter on his website.

              Trump recently mentioned that he'll abolish, or remove, Federal Marijuana laws, letting the states decide.

              Now it's time to help make America a better place by placing your vote on November 8th, for the candidate of your choice!  Remember, it's you who decides who to vote for, not the establishment or party you most associate with.

              P.S.  I've conveniently left out most of the hot button topics, such as abortion, religion, and the like, as that's what the two parties use to divide us.   We need to be united in this election, no matter the outcome.  It'll drag on for at least a month after the election as the lawyers battle out "the will of the people".

              P.P.S. I've chosen not to link directly to where I got the information (with a few exceptions) as am sure people can find it themselves.  WikiLeaks, and Reddit, are my two major sources, and Reddit primarily gets it from WikiLeaks, among other sources.  This will allow you to read the most current chatter.
