Dads around the Triangle celebrate Father's Day with 5K races, superhero day at Marbles Kids Museum and relaxing at Pullen Park
Thewoodman: My fellow Americans, It is time to be candid and honest with ourselves and each other. I am an Independent … WHY … because I’ve seen great and horrible Presidents represent each Party. I’ve work for, employed and associated with politicians and members of both parties. There is good and bad in each. My family is made up of Native Americans, African-Americans, Chinese, Hawaiian Americans, and European Caucasians. There are members of Christian, Mormon, Catholic, Jewish and Atheistic persuasion in this family. There are Republicans, Democrats and Independents in my family. I have watched while members of both major parties have blindly followed their party representatives … NO MATTER WHAT. If we are honest with one another and ourselves, we know that had Clinton and Trump given the same campaign speeches this past year as they have given, acted in the same way they have acted over the past decade, and had the same accomplishments they have had in their lifetime … BUT CLINTON WAS A REPUBLICAN AND TRUMP A DEMOCRAT, the future would look much different! Trump would have easily been the nominee of the Democrat party, the Democrats would love him, he would be 80 percent in the polls, would be receiving glowing coverage from the media, and have the support of 95 percent of the black community. Clinton on the other hand, if she was a Republican, would have lost in the first round of their debate series, been crucified by the media for her corruption and we would no longer be talking about her as a potential presidential candidate. It is time to remove patrician, bias, blind. party, prejudice and put America first. We can no longer support Hillary just because she is the only Democrat left standing. We can no longer support Hillary just because she would be the first women President of the United States (the only positive she now possesses). We must turn to Trump, who may be a great president or another failed president … NONE OF US CAN HONESTLY SAY WE KNOW THE FUTURE RESULTS ... because America cannot afford another proven corrupt, dishonest politician in the White House.
