A couple of months ago, as Trump’s nomination to lead the party I have primarily aligned myself with politically, I wrote this. I felt like the main character in Green Eggs and Ham as my husband and others around me tried to get me to like Donald Trump.

Try him, Try him.

At the end of the book, he tries the eggs, and loves them. That’s not how I feel about Mr. Trump. My disdain for him has grown as time passes. In less than a month, I will vote for a Democrat for President for the first time since I started voting over 20 years ago.

My 36th fear is making the wrong decision. I can spend hours over analyzing the pros and cons of a situation. I run through worst case scenarios. I make lists. I usually lose sleep.

The thing I realized today though, is when I finally do make up my mind, I can stand confidently behind my decision. I rarely regret what I decide to do.

Though I endorsed John Gault for President months ago, I haven’t heard from him at all. No one has. Plus, as often as I’ve hoped that it would come, The Rapture hasn’t happened yet.

I’m with her.
