This is what it comes to in America: If you can’t get excited about Sanders or Biden, get excited about making sure that Trump doesn’t get four more years. Didn’t Jill Biden say that about her husband last year? Something about holding your nose and voting for her husband instead of Trump? That’s like telling women to vote for Hillary Clinton because you’re a woman and there’s a special place in Hell for you if you don’t. How ludicrous is that, voting for a woman because she’s a woman? It’s… un-American.
So, vote for a socialist communist who wants to usurp more power for the government, to run your life because he believes the government is more capable of making decisions for you than are you. And Trump is a totalitarian?
Or vote for Joe Biden, who’s had nearly 50 years to make a difference in the country but has done little but be on the wrong side of nearly every important issue throughout his career. Both are “decent men,” they argue. More decent than Trump. Right. That excites me enough to vote Democrat.
Are they really, decent? All politicians lie. All of them. They get rich not by representing the will of We, the People who elect them, but by those who pay them the most Benjamins. Sanders and Biden, too. Sanders stopped bashing millionaires when he became one. Now, only billionaires are evil in his eyes. Being president has cost Trump money. He fell off Forbes’ list of 100 richest Americans shortly after taking office.
I’m not really a Trump supporter. I support the president, because if he succeeds, the country succeeds—I succeed.
I’m not fond of Trump. I wouldn’t hang with him to drink bourbon and smoke a cigar even if he indulged in both of those habits. I don’t have to like my doctor with a poor bedside manner if they identify my ailment and treat me promptly and I get well quickly. I don’t have to like the president if he makes my life better, safer, and improves the country.
Yes, Trump is arrogant. Maybe he’s even confrontational; but in most cases, I’ve noticed he’s a counter-puncher: treat him unfairly, and he strikes back. Who doesn’t stick up for themselves when attacked unfairly? If you don’t then that’s on you.
“If you can’t get excited about Sanders or Biden, get excited about making sure that Trump doesn’t get four more years?” That sounds like mainstream media talk. Cut your nose off to spite your face.
Destroy everything that’s great about America—oh, that’s right, according to Andrew Cuomo, “America was never that great.” We just turned the tide in two World Wars, put a man on the moon, and continue to advance science and medicine. What’s great about any of that?
Tear up the Constitution; our Founding Fathers were slave owners, the nation was founded on an immoral basis so let’s rewrite history, tear down statues, rename streets, parks and schools. Start over. Because what the world needs is another failed socialist nation.
Bernie Sanders: “People waiting in food lines is a good thing. At least they’re not starving while the rich eat like kings.” That’s something even the Left-leaning, Democrat controlled media can’t get excited about. Get excited instead about preventing another four years of Trump, even if it means putting people in food lines.
More Bernie: “America is racist from top to bottom.” No it’s not, Bernie. Not even close. Stop trying to divide the country with lies. Where else in the world do Blacks have the opportunities they have in this country? I’ve known several Blacks who’ve succeeded far beyond where I am today. They didn’t let the color of their skin stand in their way. I smoke cigars with several Blacks at my local cigar shop. We talk family, politics, sports, yes, even racism. I work with several African Americans. I see their skin color as I’m sure they see mine. But I don’t see them for their skin color. They don’t want me to tiptoe around them because they’re Black. I treat them the way I treat everyone, with respect. I’d wager that’s what most people want.
But that’s Trump’s fault, too, right, that George Washington owned slaves? Just like the Coronavirus is Trump’s fault. First, he was a xenophobe and racist for placing travel restrictions on flights coming out of China on January 31. Now, he’s a bumbling idiot who waited too long to take action. The Left wants it both ways. No matter what he does, Trump must be second-guessed and criticized.
In 2009, the earliest reported cases of the Swine Flu in the U.S. began appearing in late March, in California. It quickly spread to infect people in Texas, New York, and assorted other states by mid-April. By the end of May, it had infected citizens in all 50 states. On October 24, 2009, President Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States. On November 12, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with 2009 A H1N1 and 4,000 Americans had died.
Obama and Biden waited six months to declare a nation emergency, and Trump is the bumbling idiot?
You don’t like Trump, so I should vote for a socialist communist who wants to tear down everything that’s good about this country? A socialist communist who praises Castro and honeymooned in Russia?
Or I should vote for a corrupt lifetime politician who’s done little for this country while lining his own pockets and the pockets of his family, someone even his wife can’t get excited about?
Or vote for a loud-mouthed billionaire who gave up a good life for a job he didn’t need and donates his salary every quarter—this quarter to help battle the Coronavirus (you don’t hear that on CNN)—who lowered taxes, improved the economy, got more people off food stamps than his predecessor put on food stamps; improved the lives of all minorities, lowered unemployment to record lows among all demographics, increased jobs, brought manufacturing jobs back to America, negotiated fair trade deals with Japan, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, and is in the process of inking a new deal with China; destroyed the Caliphate; rebuilt our military, has taken care of our veterans, and lowered illegal crossings of our southern border. All accomplishments that had his predecessor done them would’ve labeled him the greatest president of our era. But it doesn’t matter, because a large chunk of Americans already believes that.
I don’t have to like Trump to see that he’s accomplished a hell of a lot in a short period of time. But not vote for Trump, vote instead for either Democrat because I don’t like him as a person, or because someone else doesn’t like him, because the Left tells me to, because liberal Left extremists like Robert De Niro will label me racist, misogynistic, illiterate, uneducated, deplorable and irredeemable if I don’t? Because my perceptions of Trump should be like yours, that he isn’t a decent man while his two opponents, in your opinion, are, but in reality, are no better?
Sorry, that’s something I just can’t get excited about. It’s un-American, and that’s something for which I won’t apologize.
