“My name is Raymond and I’m from Florida. I want, first of all, to tell you that I am 99 years old, but I want you to know that I’m still capable of making good judgment decisions, and this election has been a big factor in my thinking.

“I’m a veteran of World War II and the Korean War. I fought for my country. And I want my country to be strong. When the 2016 election came up, I was in a quandary ’cause with choice between Hillary and Trump, and neither one of them to me was a good candidate. And I finally said, well, I’m gonna take the lesser of two evils, maybe I’ll be lucky. And Trump will be elected and he will choose advisors who will help him and choose the proper route he should take in foreign affairs especially, and is also being able to take care of our economy. So I voted for Trump. Well, this turned out to be a terrible mistake. I couldn’t believe some of the things that were coming out of his mouth and the things that he was doing is absolutely no regard for anybody’s feelings.

“He didn’t have any regard for keeping NATO strong. He was strongly in favor of Russia, who was always trying to make trouble for us, and this just didn’t make any sense to me. It just went on and on and I was getting so disgusted.

“He would choose people to, for his cabinet that weren’t really qualified to do the work, and our country was slipping away. He was not doing anything democratically. He was trying to do only what was good for Trump, and that irritated me terribly. I was afraid from what was happening to this country because as a democracy, we have to remain strong. And this doesn’t show any sign of strength as far as I’m concerned.

“So those four years went by, and I’m telling you, they were a long four years. I could hardly stand what was going on. And what happened in, in the Capitol was one of the worst things. And of course, Trump was responsible for that too. He was doing everything he can to maintain his position and to hold his position as president, despite the fact that he was not qualified to do it any longer.

“But he didn’t care. All he cared was I want to remain there and I want to do whatever I want for my thinking and the heck with everybody else. So here we are with another election coming up and boy, I have a choice again, and I certainly don’t want to vote Trump back in. This would be a horrible mistake.

“It will destroy this country as a democracy. Because he doesn’t care about democracy any longer. So when this election comes up, truthfully, I’m only going to be voting for Biden. And if Trump gets in, I don’t want to be around to see it.”
