I Would Rather Vote for SpongBob Than Trump

Donald Trump is two-faced and I would not vote for a candidate
who keeps flip-flopping on issues every time the wind blows.
began his campaign with a slur against Mexican immigrants. Now he has
changed his mind on the question of Syrian refugees after he once said he
would grant them asylum because of "humanitarian basis.” Trump now says he
would kick them out. "I'm putting the people on notice that refugees
who are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration that if I
win, they're going back."
First of all, refugees and
immigrants are not the same. Refugees are people who are fleeing war to
safety whereas immigrants are people who leave at their choice and get to
pick where they go. Secondly, if Trump doesn't like refugees coming to our
country, he should ask our President to quit bombing the daylight out of
other Muslim countries that he dislikes.
The 1,500 Syrian refugees
who were allowed to enter the U.S. are a small token in comparison to what
Lebanon took in. Lebanon is a country of 4 million people who have
welcomed over one million Syrian refugees. That is more than what the US,
Russia, Iran, the Arab Gulf states and Israel took combined. Besides, how
would President Trump (God forbid) explain the expulsion of thousands of
U.S. legal residences who have committed no crime? After all, the U.S. did
contribute to the Syrian refugee crisis with its bombing of Syria and its
support to the groups and neighboring countries who are trying to
overthrow the current Syrian regime.
Many people do not know that
Trump's mother was an immigrant who was born in Scotland and his father
was the son of a German immigrant. Let's not also forget that Trump
himself was an "anchor husband", since two of his wives (from former
Eastern block countries) married him to get U.S. citizenship.
Donald Trump has cited mental health issues as a reason of the Oregon
shooting. Now, Trump wants you to believe that armed teachers could have
stopped the massacre.
Let's face it, Trump is vile whose heart is
an empty hole and he strikes me as cocky as a peacock who spreads his
feathers to impress his mates. I would rather vote for “SpongeBob
SquarePants” than Trump.
