Why a former Sanders supporter is now voting Trump

Not too long ago, I went to friend and told him “I’ve jumped off the Bernie bandwagon to join the other side. I’m now voting for Donald Trump.” I would let you know what he said in response, but The Signpost won’t let me post that many expletives.

After he calmed down and I was able to explain to him why I would vote for someone I was so adamantly opposed to, I soon had a second Trump supporter.

You see, Donald Trump is the only candidate who speaks his mind. He’s who America needs right now. We don’t need someone who says what the people want to hear because we need someone whose words are true to what he actually believes. We need transparency, and we get that with Trump.

This was only the first of my reasons to vote for Donald Trump, and now I am going to give you a glimpse into why I am voting for The D.

First, let me begin by letting you know that we have a problem. We have the smallest voter turnout of any democratic country. Many ask themselves why this is the case, and Trump has that answer.

There is no doubt that this is a problem that he plans on fixing. He’s had many of his voting friends come up to him and ask what his plan is, and I have been there to hear him let everyone know that this is a problem that can and will be fixed. And this is my number one reason why I am voting for Donald Trump.

Second, and even more important than the first, is the massive support that the Trump has been getting from those around him. When David Duke was asked what about Trump he likes, he had the perfect answer: “Maybe stopping illegal immigration? U sick CUCK!”

I’m not 100 percent sure who this David Duke fella is, but he, like myself, supports Donald Trump, so I like him. And even though Jeb Bush recently endorsed Ted Cruz, I still like him too because, not too long ago, I saw a picture of him standing outside of the Trump Tower with a “VOTE TRUMP” sign.

So I guess my second reason that I’m voting for Trump is because it seems that it’s what everyone else is doing.

Finally, I reach the most important reason as to why I’m voting for Trump. Not too long ago, I sat down and really contemplated the political situation that we were in, and I asked myself what will make America great again. I started making a list.

At first, it simply consisted of doodles on a piece of paper, but once the mental gears really started turning, I couldn’t stop writing: Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Drumpf, and finally—April fools.
