America decides! Day 2. After a long night of counting mail-in ballots and Washington DC getting marched on, there is still not a clear decision on who is to win the presidency. I'm not a pollster and do not have any more information than the media has. Although, I am a concerned citizen, and the fact that America decided but our leaders haven’t, is alarming.
Going into the night I was optimistic for not a landslide Trump victory, but a decisive one. The raw enthusiasm across the board for President Trump screamed re-election. Long lines spilled out of rallies, pop-up Trump caravans were a norm across the country, and here in Arizona (Blue state, ugh) there was a 96-mile long line of supporters greeting President Trump. You heard that right, 96 miles long!
Being born and raised in the great state of Arizona, I am simply appalled at the outcome. What has been a Republican stronghold for years has been lost to the influx of Californians, students at several giant universities, and a Latina mayor in Tucson who is more suited to be on The View than anywhere near a position of real power. It was and still is a well-known fact that Arizona was in play for Clinton in 2016 and was still trending to become more democrat. Between 2010 and 2018, 500,000 people moved from California to Arizona. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that kind of shift from a democrat stronghold will push a state left.
While I can't place all the blame on California transplants alone, there are also three universities with countless students from California and other parts of the US who have gained residency and can legally vote in Arizona. These institutions, being left-leaning washing machines for the young mind, produced countless Biden and Clinton votes these last two cycles.
As for myself and the rest of the folks in the great city of Tucson, it was no surprise that Pima County voted democrat. The ridiculous Regina Romero who is as far left as they come has been whipping up Hispanic support for democrats since she got into office. Hispanics are an already low information voting block that is being subverted further by their own kind. It’s a stark difference between Hispanic Cubans in South Florida. Maybe cartel wars and endless fraud in Mexico disguised as freedom isn't enough? A full blown communist regime in Mexico may be the only thing that pushes the vote Republican, but that's neither here nor there. (CIA do your thing).
This raises a question that I ask my fellow Arizonans. As much as we care about the presidency, how much do we care about our state? In my opinion, Arizona and other old conservative strongholds have to suppress - yes, suppress - new voters that have come from a different part of the country. Arizona and its people for years have kept our borders secure, income taxes low, and gun rights open to anyone. We truly may be the last state to embrace our Wild West traditions, and it would be a blow to America and our future if we can’t be the example of security, but most importantly liberty.
As for the election? Unfortunately, as I sit here writing this, the vote is still being counted in GA, NC, PA, NV, and AZ. President Trump has also called for a recount in the state of WI. All we can do is hope and pray that the integrity of this process stays true and all votes are counted. There is still hope for a Trump re-election and I'm here to fight to the bitter end with you!
