Why do Trump’s followers like him, love him so much? Is it his patriotism?
Trump isn’t afraid to say he loves America and all the opportunity it has offered him. “The day I was born I had already won the greatest lottery on earth. I was born in the United States of America.” (Crippled America, p 101)
Trump believes, truly believes, that we are a nation of laws that should be applied equally. The black teen shouldn’t be gunned down for nothing and Hillary and Bill shouldn’t get a DOJ-FBI “pass” on their ongoing activities.
It is this belief that spurred him into his introductory anti-illegal immigrant presentation on the escalator. You know the one… The one where he ended up being called every lousy name in the book by the Left, by the Right, and by the I-don’t-even-know-who-I-am Groups.
And Real Americans came off their couches and roared their approval that finally someone, somewhere was saying what needed to be said and saying it without hesitation, without sniveling, without apologizing.
And BUILD A WALL??!!? Could it get any better?
Yes, it could. And yes, it has.
Trump wants to vet Muslims — You know, those Sharia-enforcers who shout “Death to America!”, who commit grisly beheadings of children, who multi-rape and disembowel non-believing women (and boys)?
Why on earth would we NOT vet folks who harbor such violent anti-American interlinking religious, social, cultural, and moral values? And leave us not forget for one minute their “honor killings”. I will get to Islam in a future article.
Trump is going to reignite the pride in our military! He is going to rebuild the armed forces. Hopefully, air flighting diapers to naval carriers will be a thing of the past. Perhaps waving a “blue card” so you don’t have to participate in a drill “because you just don’t feel like it” will also be a thing of the past.
Women who cannot meet the standards of men for combat units should be dropped cold. Women in combat positions present so many problems, not in the least the safety of the men in the mixed units.
As a woman who is also a vet I offer a free piece of advice to Trump and to the military: If you are going to put women in combat – which I do not personally support – then these combat units should be made up entirely of combat women with female combat officers leading them.
That won’t solve all of the problems but it will eliminate many of them. And don’t start me with the “But they don’t have combat experience yet!”
You study. You practice. And then you learn by doing. Just like the guys who put on their big boy pants. And their 70-pound packs.
Trump wants fair trade deals. The Giant Sucking sound of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) killed (as was predicted) millions of U.S. Jobs and thousands of U.S. Factories. It was backed by George HW Bush and passed and signed into law by William J Clinton, bipartisanship at its naked worst.
Today the Democrats (including Hillary, until Trump started gaining on her) and the RINOs and the globalists all support TPP and TTIP.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership are international takeovers of U.S. Sovereignty and U.S. Independence. These partnerships, crafted in absolute secrecy, create tribunals of unelected foreign bureaucrats who can change the agreements after they are approved and overrule the Constitution of the United States.
U.S. Trade is guaranteed to suffer under these. So are U.S. Jobs. NAFTA stands as a grim beacon from 1993 warning us of the dire but predictable results of terrible trade agreements.
Trump steadfastly opposes these trade deals. The U.S. already has a trade deficit with every major nation we trade with. Trump wants to renegotiate the old trade deals, make them work for America.
Remember? America First. If manufacturers decide to take jobs out of this country for cheaper labor (as Ford and Carrier are doing) then let them face a tariff on the products and parts they reintroduce into the America that they turned their backs on.
Just so you know, other Mexico-bound companies include Daimler/Nissan, GM, Audi, Kia, VW, Toyota, and BMW with a proposed investment of approximately 15.8 billion dollars resulting in approximately 30,000 Mexican jobs. NAFTA lives on.
Another big, big Growth-Trade-Jobs issue is this excellent two-pronged proposition by Trump. First, drop the corporate tax rate from 35% , one of the highest in the world, to 15%, one of the lowest in the world. This is a tremendous profit motivation in itself for business investors.
Then couple that with a one-time offer to companies who are currently keeping their investment capital offshore in foreign countries because of the huge tax penalties associated with bringing that money back home to the States. Give them a one-time 10% tax and let them bring back that estimated 2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS of investment money to the States.
Can you imagine what that kind of business capital could do to jump start a dead economy? Think of the new manufacturing plants, the new natural resources, the millions of new jobs, the increased rates of production, the increase in trade. Now wouldn’t a positive trade balance be a beautiful ship on the U.S. horizon?
And remember, each new investment and each new job brings the government new taxes, new life for social security, new money to put on the debt and deficit. Win-Win!!
And Trump doesn’t think sending lots and lots of our money to OPEC in the Middle East is good trade, either. Trump thinks all of the U.S. energy sources should be cultivated and compete on a level playing field.
This means that wind and solar have to find their own, non-government supported profit-making niches. And, if left alone, I believe they will.
Trump supports letting energy find its own profit level. If hydroelectric outpaces gas, or nuclear comes in well below coal, or coal fired plants produce cheaper power, then let the market run with what works best. And get the eco-freak-o regulations out of the way.
What works in Kentucky might not work in Oregon and what works in Oregon might not work in Arizona. We are a big country and can utilize many resources.
• Are there questions? Yes.
• Will fracking for oil and gas destroy aquifers? Maybe. And that’s not a good thing.
• Will the Keystone Pipeline be pursued? Maybe – but that will entail eminent domain.
It would be nice if we could just throw up some pixie dust and have everyone happy but God didn’t make it that way. NO, life is all about choices.
And to the utter dismay and disbelief of the jet-setting, mansion-owning gurus of Climate Change, Carbon Tax, and EPA overreach (aka One Worlders), Trump sides with the 33,000 scientists who state in writing that global man-made warming is a hoax at best. As Trump says, “I like being unpredictable. It keeps them off balance.” (Crippled America p 46)
I’m with Trump. As to our weather, first it was cooling, then it was warming then, after 18+ years of no warming, it was climate change. What it was/is is a plan to take over the entire world, take all of the earth’s resources out of use in the name of Gaia and the environment, save everything for some future unspecified generation, and have us live like neanderthals in cold dark little abodes (which we might come to resemble if HAARP and the chemtrails continue unabated. That’ll be another article.)
And let us not forget some of the truly magnificent buildings and structures that Trump has constructed. While Hillary meddled with Webb Hubbell and Vince Foster and the Mena Airport in Arkansas; baked chocolate chip cookies in Bill’s White House; came from Chicago, and Arkansas, to serve as the senator from New York State; let Americans go up in flames in Benghazi; and set the entire Middle East ablaze; here’s some of what Donald J Trump was doing around the world.
TRUMP TOWER; TRUMP PARC; TRUMP PLAZA; TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL & TOWER, CHICAGO; TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF CLUB, WESTCHESTER; TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF CLUB, LOS ANGELES;
TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL, LAS VEGAS; TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL, WASHINGTON, DC (The Old Post Office);
TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF CLUB, WASHINGTON, DC; TRUMP VINEYARD ESTATES; THE MAR-A-LAGO CLUB.
TRUMP TOWERS, ISTANBUL, TURKEY; TRUMP TOWER, MUMBAI, INDIA; LE CHATEAU DES PALMIERS, ST. MARTIN, FRENCH WEST INDIES (CARIBBEAN); TRUMP TOWER AT CENTURY CITY, THE PHILIPPINES; THE ESTATES AT TRUMP INTERNATIONAL GOLF CLUB, DUBAI;
TRUMP HOTEL, RIO DE JANIERO, BRAZIL; TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL & TOWER, TORONTO, CANADA; TRUMP INTERNATIONAL GOLF LINKS & HOTEL, IRELAND; TRUMP TURNBERRY, SCOTLAND.
And a couple dozen more. Not to mention his TV shows, guest appearances, beauty pageants, that wonderful NYC skating rink, etc.
And in the process he has interacted with and ingratiated himself successfully with numerous international countries, their politicians, their laws and customs, their companies. He has, over the years, employed tens of thousands of people in construction, in architecture and engineering, the trades, office staff, Research and Development, PR, hospitality staff, security, interior decorators, and who knows who else.
Donald J Trump is one remarkable man who has lived a vivid and successful American Dream. I believe he sincerely wishes for Americans of all stripes to have the chance to make their dreams come true. And he believes that here in the United States of America, that dreams can come true, have come true, and will continue to come true as long as we keep America Strong and Beautiful and Free.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
GOD BLESS DONALD TRUMP!
AND GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL YOUR DREAMS!
