Comfortable wearing MAGA hat in public
This past Fourth of July was a special Independence Day. I was invited to a Republican Party barbecue on Kauai.
Steve Yoder, chair of the local Republican Party, along with his lovely wife Tina, sponsored an awesome BBQ.
Since becoming a Trump supporter I have felt quite isolated, especially living in a dominated Democratic state. I have been shunned in restaurants and have been given the short treatment by professionals on the phone.
For the first time in three years, since a friend gifted me a “Make American Great Again” T-shirt and hat, I was able to wear them in pride. I have worn my MAGA hat before but was always uncomfortable wearing it. However, on this Independence Day I had a sense of camaraderie, finally getting together with folks with like minds.
I have always considered myself an independent. However with all that’s going on in the world, one must take sides. Just like Bob Dylan once wrote, “It may be the devil, or it may be the Lord, but you’re going to have to serve somebody.”
I have chosen the party of “pro-life,” the party of “the right to bear arms” and support the 2nd amendment, and the party to keep Israel as our friend.
It truly amazes me as a man of the Jewish faith that most of my fellow Jews for some reason are Democrats and support their pro-Palestinian agenda. Finally, the number one reason to support the Republicans is their commitment to keeping America safe through border security.
