Louis D. Brandis once said… “Our government teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” In our government, we get to vote on who we choose to represent us.

He has claimed that “laziness is a trait in blacks.” Personal views shouldn’t become a factor in what decisions presidents make, but they obviously will influence Trump- and he wants the world to know. That could be devestating for the many women, Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, and other minorities in the United States, not to mention extremely offensive. The world is evolving to become more open to many things that it wasn’t years ago, and we need an open-minded liberal candidate- not someone narrow-minded and conservative, to run our country.
