Caitlyn and Extremism #caitlynjenner #republican #GOP #extremism #transgender #gayvstransgender

Many stories have come and gone about Caitlyn Jenner, but the strangest of all of them is her card-carrying right to be a Republican and the media around that issue. In fact, lately, it seems that what has come out of the Republican party, more than anything these past months, is more extremism and fundamentalism, mixed with a sprinkling of “I better support the Right Wing Christian Faith or I’ll lose this race, but if I don’t get some of the gays’ votes, I’ll lose too,” than the foundational grit one would need to win a presidency.
Just the fact that 17 GOPs have shown up for the race, including Donald Trump, just makes my jaw drop in anticipation for the first big debate. What will they talk about? Caitlyn Jenner, gay marriage, abortion, or what really matters with finance and foreign policy? Is some computer geek measuring what Americans really want and believe in? With this information, will we see more and more extreme candidates fighting for that popular vote? If so, you’re going to see Right Wing Whatevers saying it’s not right to marry if you’re gay, but in some cases, it may be okay to change your gender if you’re a big enough sports hero!
I’ve never been harsh about who anyone wants to be as a political supporter. I just hope that you take part, because it’s important to have a voice in any election, albeit a small one. I have supported frontrunners when they have fallen to a loss and have had my hopes dashed. I have sat out for the run and simply voted. Today, I’m going to use my right as a citizen to speak my truth.
If you choose your right to vote this election, make this your primary rule: Is this person worthy of your trust and the trust of all America?
These are the questions you should ask yourself:
- Is he/she running on a platform that is based on hate or prejudice?
- Is this person an extremist in any way?
- Is this person qualified to run a country based on his/her past?
- Does this person deny ANYONE rights as Americans?
- Lastly, when it comes to the economy and war, does your presidential pick have the wherewithal to fight against a congress and senate that will tear down every desire to make effective change?
My criteria sounds odd, when you think about credentials for running for president, but look closer. If someone is running on a platform of hate, how could he or she be fair? If a candidate is extreme, then our trust will wane whenever he/she takes office. We will have no idea how far his/her deeply seated extremism will go. Experience, of course, speaks for itself. But, the fourth criteria about denying rights to anyone, speaks of the most important aspect of a leader. If a candidate can’t look out into the audience and see every face as his or her brother or sister, mother or father, then he or she doesn’t get my vote.
Then, my last criteria, has come from years of watching effective people lose the battle to do good because of a senate or congress that won’t work with him—simply against. These days, getting laws and change passed through congress is more about being on the side of the majority than anything else. So, I want the president to be strong in his/her decision making, but also adamant enough to sit like a praying Buddha in the middle of this crazy, antagonistic senate and congress to get something—anything—done worth changing.
