Ballot -6

The last time I ran for office was in High School. My name appeared on the ballot along with everyone else’s who was running. Votes were cast and tallied and the winner was announced. That was it.

When Trump talks publicly about the election, it has a more personal tone. He is not so much asking us to choose between him and Clinton but more to take a stand whether we are for Him or against Him. He is the center, the all-important thing not the election. It’s about Him.

Hidden implication, I think: “It is dangerous to be against Me! If you stand in my way I’ll crush you! If not now, later!”
