It’s been a year since Donald Trump was elected President. A lot has happened since that election so I thought it might be good to go over this past year and mark both the good and the bad.
I have made no secret that Trump was not my first choice as President. I wanted Huckabee. I appreciated his maturity and his humor. I also thought he best fit the mold of “world leader.” I still like Huckabee and hope that he stays relevant because we need his calming influence in these troubled times.
But, the voters decided differently and elected Trump and I am okay with that choice. Never, however, in my nearly eighty years on this earth, would I have believed what we have witnessed since Trump’s election. It has been pure disrespect, and just plain ugliness. Never have I seen the losing party in such an uproar over their loss. The so-called mainstream media is so far from the mainstream of America as to be unbelievable. They and the Democrat party live in a fantasy world of resistance, resistance to the choice of the voters of America. Some of the wealthiest liberals in this country are buying billboards and ads calling for the impeachment of Trump. They should probably read the Constitution and save their money. Impeachment can only happen if an individual commits high crimes or misdemeanors. That has not happened and it won’t. Sorry, liberals, especially you Tom Steyer, you are spinning your wheels.
So, what are they so upset about anyway? Is it the fact that the stock market has risen almost 39% since Trump took office and that consumer confidence has gone through the roof? Maybe it is because unemployment is at a seventeen year low of 4.1%. Is that it?
Is it that a true Constitutionalist, Neil Gorsuch has been chosen as Supreme Court Justice? And that over the next several years of Trump’s term/terms he will select even more jurists to that court who both read and understand the Constitution? Jurists who know that their job is to referee the law and not to write it. If being a loyal American upsets them so, I can understand why they would be offended by a Trump Presidency.
President Trump said he would make America great again. No doubt he is well on his way to fulfilling that promise. One of his objectives seems to be making the world respect America again as the preeminent world leader in both commerce and protectors of freedom. Making our so-called enemies who are incidentally enemies of freedom all over the world, understand we will defend ourselves and our allies if and when we or they are attacked or even threatened. We will defang the little tin horn wannabe dragons who talk big and just want to cause trouble, like North Korea and Iran among others.
Are the liberals upset that Trump intends to reserve America and her fruits for Americans? While he welcomes immigrants who come to our shores legally and with contributions to make, he will continue to arrest and deport illegal trespassers and send them back to their own countries.
When the Congress finally gets their act together and passes real tax reform, our economy will boom again, as it did after Reagan’s tax reductions. And that upsets liberals? This will doubtless happen with little or no assistance from the Democrats. Oh well.
Attention liberals, and Democrats in general. The election of 2016 is over. The American people made their choice and you lost. You had a terrible candidate who cheated and lied her way to the nomination and she lost. Get over it. Continuing to go through your life with your panties in a wad has got to be uncomfortable. Just think, you’ll probably get to go through this all over again in 2020.
