1 - I am Angry
Nikki Haley did Donald Trump a tremendous favor Wednesday night with her lecture to Americans about how we shouldn't be angry.
Simply put, if you're not angry then you may not fully understand the magnitude of what has occurred since Obama took office. His actions have been horrendously destructive to this nation. Trump summed it up very well with his response to her last night. See the video below for his entire response.
I have been furious at our government since February 2009 when they rammed through the $482 billion Omnibus along with the $787 billion stimulus. Remember that? That was $1,269 Trillion in wasteful spending. I would like to see a full accounting of exactly where that money went.
Click here for a list of the grievances I had from just his first 2 years in office. I haven't bothered to add to it, but am sure the totality all lined up on one list would be staggering.
The staggering actions since then have only added fuel to my anger. Anger that is now pointed at both sides. The last couple years have made it painfully clear the Republicans have no intention of fighting for Conservative causes. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are a disgrace to the Republican Party. In fact the Republican Party is a disgrace.
Trump is the only one willing to own the anger, he does not back down from the media and establishment bullies that are so accustomed to silencing anyone who steps out of line. I wouldn't tolerate it and neither does he, and I like that, a lot. Bullies piss me off and the left is nothing short of a party of bullies.
Were you ever picked on by a bully as a kid? Well I was, I was the smallest kid in my middle school and the school bully loved to push me around. One day I'd had enough and when he gave me a shove I turned around and clocked him right in the nose. Problem solved, he never bothered me again. Lesson learned, bullies are often just paper tigers and rely primarily on intimidation. Trump has popped the bullies bubble, nothing they do or say works. Trump owns what he says and he shoves it right back in their faces. And have you noticed? It works. They whine and flail and then move on once they realize their intimidation tactics are ineffective.
2 - Build a Damn Wall Already!
I did not give Trump a second thought about him as a possible Presidential candidate at first. In fact, I recall conversations I had with a friend of mine about Trump during the 2012 election cycle. He was a fan of Trump's and thought he would make a great President. I scoffed, and told him I thought he was crazy.
And then he said it. Donald Trump had the guts to say what I have been saying for years. He said he will build a wall, not a fence, a wall. It will be big and it will be beautiful. He said it and he has owned it ever since. The media and political establishment has attacked him relentlessly with their mocking, shaming and name calling. And guess what, he hasn't flinched one single inch. Want to know why? Refer to item 1 above.
It was like finally, after years of madness listening to candidates and politicians dance around the issue. Why won't they just do what is good for America? That leads to item #3.
3 - Nobody Owns Trump
It was an incredible moment of realization, like waking up from a trance. It all suddenly made sense. All the crazy sidestepping, parsing of words by politicians that supposedly agreed with me. Those that have been saying for years that we need to solve the border problem, yet nothing changes. The realization is that all of those politicians are owned by someone with different priorities than those of us that want to save America. The big money donors are all open borders guys, they are about profit, not patriotism.
After that realization all of the candidates lies, distortions and mincing of words became crystal clear to me. Remember when Governor Walker dropped out shortly after flip flopping on the issue, and nobody on the Republican side dares mention building a wall. Got that? Nobody. Except Trump, the lone voice of sanity and patriotism on the right. I know that will draw ire from all the Cruz, Rubio, et al fans, but I implore all of you to let go of your preconceived attachments to them, as I have done, and realize all of them answer to big money donors, without exception.
That is a sobering reality. The system is broken folks and Trump has exposed it for what it is, a big show to try and convince us that they will do what we want them to do once elected. They won't. Just look at what the House and Senate has done since Conservatives gave them the majority in both Chambers in 2014. Nothing, they're all talk, no action. Why? Big money donors. They may do some of the things but they absolutely will not build a wall and they absolutely will not act on my final point below.
4 - Deport, Deport, Deport
Once again, nobody on the right even has the guts to say we need to deport. Zero, nadda, no one. Got it? I hope so. Do you think deportation is feasible as I do? Do you believe that all we need to do is begin enforcing current immigration laws and illegals will start leaving on their own? Do you go crazy listening to the mantra that it just isn't realistic, that you can't break up families, that it's just un American to not roll out the red carpet for all those that break our laws, violate our national sovereignty, disrespect our flag and then rub our noses in it?
They are not assimilating, they feel entitled and they know it pisses you and I off - patriotic Americans. And they rub our noses in it. They are reducing our standard of living by driving down wages, filling up our jails, perpetuating unspeakable violence on innocent Americans and flipping us off if we have a problem with it. In fact, we are the racists for challenging the status quo. Bottom line, the status quo is rapidly destroying American culture.
Well, I've had it and once again, the only one with the guts to say it is Donald Trump.
That's it, 4 very simple reasons to give Donald Trump serious consideration for the highest office in the land. All you skeptics that think he is lying, that think he is a big time liberal, that think he's not serious, think about this for just a moment. He's the only one with the guts to say it - and is taking tremendous flack for it from every side. Does it make sense that he would take that much grief if he didn't believe what he was saying and intend to follow through.
Also, the fact he is even willing to say it provides at a minimum the possibility that it might get done. Nobody else is even making it a possibility because they know they would lose their big money donors if they did. So with every other candidate there is zero chance of deportation, zero chance of getting a wall built. Got it? Zero, forget the lies. Forget the parsed word promises. Zero.
So, I'll take the possibility of getting those things done with Trump, over the certainty that they most definitely will not get done under every other candidate.
Simply put, Trump got my attention when he said that he will build a wall and deport, and he hasn't backed off since. That's it and that's all. I have become a single issue voter. Our country is being absolutely destroyed, and even more, our culture is being destroyed, & illegal immigration is one of the biggest factors.
Like Trump said from the very beginning, "either we have a country or we don't have a country." A vote for Trump and we have the possibility of the former, a vote for anybody else and we have the certainty of the latter. The choice is yours.
Lastly, for the record, I waited patiently for 4 years to cast my vote for Ted Cruz. I live in Texas, I watched up close his battle with the entrenched establishment candidate who had all the money in the world and Cruz only had 2% of the vote. He won the hearts and minds of Texans with his conservative principles, his sharp mind and a proven track record. He would be an acceptable second choice if Trump doesn't win. But make no mistake about it, a wall will not get built and illegals will not get deported. The illegal immigration madness will continue to some degree.
So, as of right now I am giving Trump the benefit of the doubt and rooting for him, and will continue to back him as long as he continues to show he is for real and holds his ground against the ruling class and the corrupt media.
Read his books, listen to people that have known him for decades. He's for real folks, his heart is in this for America. He loves this country and he hates what is being done to it by the ruling class. Something we should all be able to relate to.
