One Nation Under God

Whether you love him or hate him it is in everyone’s best interest for President Donald J. Trump to succeed.  Those of you trying to undermine him are doing so at the peril of this nation.

war

Every action has a reaction.  The collateral damage being caused by all the nonsense going on in this country is embarrassing at best.  Sooner or later when you play with fire you get burnt.  The worldwide coverage of our shenanigans angers and emboldens those who might wish the United States harm.

evil

We have reached a fork in the road.  It is time for every American to ask them self what kind of America they would like to live in.

fake1 anarchy

Mean hateful speech fills the airwaves.  Anarchists threaten our free speech.  Every cause demands top priority.  Tantrums erupt daily.  Name calling, fear mongering, criticizing, lying and complaining have now become the national past times.  Instant gratification is the goal.

school

The future of this country depends on our children.  Yet our education system is broken.  Children do not feel safe.  This is no longer the land of opportunity for many of them.  We as a nation are failing them.

Violent criminals, drugs, gangs and poverty have taken over our cities and towns.  Homeless people live on our streets.  Our elderly are neglected.  Far too many people are in desperate need of public assistance.  Self-indulgence has replaced common sense.

Donald J. Trump is the forty-fifth President of the United States.  It is not necessary to like him.  But, we must accept him.  If we think he is weak than it is our duty as Americans to give him strength.  There has never been a President that everybody liked.  The election is over.  It is time to put partisan politics aside and come together.

The Trump hysteria needs to stop.  Instead of wasting all that energy on negativity use it for good.  Instead of playing the malcontent open your mind to new ideas.  Instead of complaining, think of ways to make the world a better place.  Smile at someone.  Help an old lady cross the street.  Stop the constant bickering.  Treat people how you would like to be treated, even President Trump.

key

Does President Trump have all the answers?  Of course not, no one does, not even me.  Does he make mistakes?  Of course he does.  We all do.  He is only human.  If President Trump succeeds with half of his agenda we as a nation will be better off.  Everyone needs to take a deep breath and relax.  Let the man do his job.

peace

President Trump wants to keep us safe, provide better education for our children, help families rise out of poverty, lower the need for public assistance, fix our crumbling infrastructure, take care of our veterans, bring jobs back to this country, strengthen our military, stop our dependence on others, peace on earth and goodwill towards man.  In short President Trump simply wants to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

What Goes Around Comes Around

flag2 (2)

We are a nation governed by The United States Constitution.  It is time we start playing by those rules again.  They have served us well.  Our forefathers knew what they were doing when they divided our government into three equal branches.  For our country to run smoothly the three branches need to do so as well.

sc

The Supreme Court is responsible for ensuring that disputes are resolved in accordance with the United States Constitution.  As a result of partisan politics one of those seats has remained empty for months.  Garland didn’t get a hearing thanks to Republicans.  So Democrats refuse to vote “yes” for Neil Gorsuch.  Two wrongs don’t make a right.

court1

The Supreme Court can run smoothly with only eight sitting justices.  The problem comes when the eight justices are equally divided.  When that happens the Supreme Court relinquish its duties to a lower court.  Instead of having nine well qualified justices decide a case that can affect us all.  We place our fate in the hands of one justice from a lower court.  Rouge self-indulgent justices suffering from delusions of grandeur are free to play politics from their bench.

 The Executive Branch, headed by the President approves legislation and commands our military.  The duties of a President are limited.  A President doesn’t make laws.  The President approves or doesn’t legislation passed by Congress.  A President must have approval from Congress to go to war.  President Trump is the least of our worries.

house2

The Legislative Branch known as Congress is divided into the House and Senate.  Their job is to take care of business for the American people.  Each state has two Senators to represent their home state.  The number of Representatives from each state is based on population.  Their job is to represent their constituents.

DvR

Partisan politics has taken over Congress.  Members have sold their souls to their political Parties.  The top priority is stacking the deck in Congress by filling the seats with those from their Party.  Their days are spent campaigning for the next election.  Pleasing political donors takes precedence over serving this country.

quag

The quagmire in Congress has progressively gotten worse over time and didn’t happen overnight.  Pointing all the fingers in the world won’t help.  There is plenty of blame to go around.  As time has gone by, members have been emboldened to push the envelope further and further.  They are in the process of pushing it too far.

sport

One Party makes a rule to benefit the Party, not the people.  When the other Party uses the same rule for their benefit the first Party cries foul.  Neither Party has the foresight to consider the long-term ramification of their actions.

genie

Democrats’ antics of undermining the President of the United States are setting a dangerous precedent.  Once the genie is let out of the bottle, there will be no getting it back in.  Congress members need to think long and hard before they do.

coup

Democrats unhappy they lost the Presidential election went so far as attempting a coup.  With Nancy Pelosi’s daughter as their minion they attempted to intimidate Electoral College members into overriding the American people.  Luckily it backfired.  Their candidate lost more votes than their intended target.  Imagine if they had succeeded?  Are they so naïve to think it would have been business as usual?

table

Instead of representing their constituents at the table they spend every waking moment fear mongering.  Then they complain the people are afraid.  What good does that do the American people?  Calls for the American people to protest and fight the President in hopes he fails to further their Party’s agenda are un-American.  Causing chaos in our streets is not in the best interest of the American people.

What goes around comes around.  The problem is when all you do is run around in circles you get nowhere.  That is exactly the direction Congress is going.
