At the NBC debate, 60 million people may have watched more of the same outrageous, childish behavior and hateful speech that we have been subjected to for almost a year in the quest for the Presidency. With this additional 90 minutes of bombast and bullying, will any minds be changed? I think not and the outcome of this unique election hinges on grassroots efforts to encourage voter turnout.
As a Latino university student, exercising for the first time my constitutional right and responsibility as a citizen, I listened to the many primary candidates and determined which candidates had the best interest of my family, myself and my community at heart.
Only one has emerged that I can support. Minorities, women, older males and those intolerant of differing cultures, lifestyles, religions, and races have made up their minds weeks ago and this more bitter debate only solidifies their support.
The eventual outcome of the 2016 presidential election will not depend on these debates. The voter turnout across the country, especially in the battleground states will decide this election. Bad government and leadership are elected by people who do not vote. Fulfill your responsibility and get out and VOTE!
Never miss a local story.
