“Hi, my name is Patrick. I live in California. I did vote for President Trump in 2020, as I have voted for presidential Republican candidates for most of my life.

“I do not plan to vote for him in 2024. I believe that we have better choices and I am most concerned about what is best for the country. I voted for Trump in 2020, partially because I really did appreciate a lot of the things that he accomplished.

“And I liked a lot of the things that he did with, uh, to help the economy. I liked that he was actually doing something about our issues with the immigration across our illegal immigration across the Southern border.

“I do not think that even if he were to win the Republican primary, I would be very fearful that he would lose in the general election, and then we would be stuck with so much baggage that former president Trump has, he’s under two different indictments right now.

“Uh, there’s still Georgia to deal with after that. I think it will just keep going and certain parts of it, maybe they’re bogus, but some of it he did, there’s no doubt about it. We need to start looking at people that are not well past retirement age, typical retirement age to lead our country. That is a extremely stressful job.

“It has to have somebody who is very sharp witted. And can keep track of all the things that are going on and just have the stamina to be able to do it. And I think having younger candidates, a generation or even two generations younger than our current candidates would be a positive thing. I really do think that would be a good for our country.

“I know that a lot of the people who truly are enamored or big fans or love Donald Trump. Are looking at it from a loyalty perspective. I believe that our first loyalty needs to be to our country, not to an individual. Loyal to America. We want America to succeed. That is the most important aspect of this whole thing.

“Loyalty to the party that has the conservative values that I value is, is far more important than loyalty to just an individual. And we have to, we have to look past that, the individual loyalty and look what’s best for the entire country.”
