My political opinion doesn’t matter. At all. I know so little about politics that I thought Political Science was a show on C-SPAN hosted by John Brenkus.

That’s why, unlike other journalists (I have a Journalism degree, screw you), I am not going to push my own personal agenda on you in a holier-than-thou attempt to convert you over to “the good guys,” or make fun of you for even considering voting for “the worst candidate ever.” I’m just not going to touch the subject. Me telling you who to vote for is like a Jewish waiter recommending you order either the BLT or the pork chop, or Adam Sandler using his Second Amendment right to defend himself against a nighttime home invader — it’s a complete shot in the dark (by a Jew). I cast my ballot already, but it doesn’t matter for whom — all that matters is I cast it, and you should cast yours too before polls close tomorrow.

I am, however, interested in why our readers are voting the way they are. We recently received the below submission, which was titled something along the lines of “Why Trump should be president as written by a college freshman in 15 minutes with zero regard for grammar,” wherein a freshman laid forth the reasoning behind his decision to vote for Trump. Check it out.

Donald Trump may seem to most like a representation of the establishment as a multimillionaire and a major public figure but he is the opposite. Obama’s administration literally represents the establishment and Hillary has stated more than 100 times that she supports all of Obama’s decisions and will basically do everything exactly how he did. Trump’s administration directly opposes the Obama administration and is therefore anti establishment. Therefore if you don’t agree with Obama obviously your only choice is to vote for trump. Under the Obama administration racial tensions and rioting has steadily increased to levels near that of the 1960s where there have been mass shootings and violent race riots nationwide, under the clinton administration race relations would continue to increase it is 2016 why on earth is racial conflict even a thing? Who the hell wants to vote for a president who causes conflict?

A common criticism of Trump is the fact that he makes wild comments which is true, but at the sametime everyone makes those kinds of comments but rather than say them in public they keep them to themselves. Trump is a very confident man who does not hold his feelings back which is a strong quality of an honest person. Trump is clearly a very honest person he always expresses his opinion the way he truly feels rather than is very untruthful opponent Hillary who has lied countless times. Hillary has been under investigation from the FBI for lying multiple times honestly who on earth wants a president in office who has been investigated by the FBI multiple times for lying?

TL;DR — This kid likes his candidates to be anti-establishment, anti-Obama, unifying, and honest in a “tell it like it is” way, which is why he says he’s voting for Trump.

If any college freshman readers want to send us a couple hundred words on why they’re voting for Hillary, we’d love to see what you have to say.
