My Thoughts on American Politics for 2020
Those who know me and for you who do not I have been following media commentaries and events leading up to the 2020 US Presidential Campaign.
There are two kinds of people running for the office of President of the United States.
Qualified yet unfit for the highest political office
2. Qualified and currently serving in the highest political office
Not everyone who jumps into the pool can swim. Some do it for attention, others for sympathy and still others because they can and a very select few because of necessity.
The US political process has been corrupted for a long time, so long in fact that we (the American people) have been blind to its corruption. We are continually fed channeled information thru the various media outlets. I venture to say that most of what we read, hear or see is far from the truth.
We are told that Democrats are destroying the country that we love.
We are told that Republicans are destroying the country that we love.
I believe that American politicians (backed by greedy, power hungry and extremely wealthy individuals) are causing division in America in order to maintain their normal political power and business as usual way of life in politics.
American politics has become a magnet for Social-Democrats and Left Leaning Communistic or Muslim Politicians bent on destroying the American way of life in the country that we love. They seem determined on turning back the clock and making the United States of America nothing more than another third rate political country.
What America needs for 2020 is a complete make-over of our political process.
Politicians are voted into office by the American people (US citizens) and must remember who sent them and what we (the voters) have sent them to do (preserve the US Constitution and represent the American people).
America is still a place where anyone can come, adapt to our way of life, work hard to provide a better life for them and their families, and proceed on the path to citizenship and thereby obtain their American Dream.
What has changed in recent years is the fact that people with a very different ideology are focusing on destroying our American way of life and are being supported by American Politicians AND in many cases by a portion of the American people who don’t seem to know or care about the safeguards built into the US Constitution.
Unless you are a Veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States, a member of the Legislative, Judicial or Executive branches of government, you may not have sworn to (or taken) the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies (foreign or domestic). No matter how you feel about politics or political parties, Veterans knows the oath they have taken and there is on expiration date.
I don’t believe all the hype or negativity that’s being passed on as “truth” about any one running for office.
The 2020 election has brought out what amounts to a bowl of political fruit salad with Democratic Party candidates who favor eliminating the physical border separating the US and Mexico, eliminating Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), further violating the Constitution by doing away with the Electoral College safeguard, approving abortion (even after birth), lowering the voting age to 16, allowing illegal immigrants to vote, providing free college tuition to illegal immigrants, harassing and intimidating minority voters to vote Democrat (this list is not all inclusive or complete by any means).
From the Republican Party there are those who feel voters need a choice with yet unnamed candidates who may appeal to traditional political values.
As for President Donald Trump, his message is clear, secure our borders by enforcing the Rule of Law to make America Safe Again, while strengthening the US economy through jobs and products produced in America. His America First vision is to place top priority on American values and protecting the US Constitution. His re-election is second only to his love for the country. To me results matter.
As a Veteran I cannot, nor will not support someone as my commander and chief who is incompetent as demonstrated by their political track record or campaign rhetoric.
My litmus test of a good leader is someone who surrounds themselves with experienced and/or qualified people; listens to their advice; makes good solid decisions and takes full responsibility for those decisions; unafraid to make top down changes when needed ; and does not bask in someone else’s glory or plays the political blame game.
A leader must inspire trust and confidence to those who follow, as well as fear for those who would plan harm against the country or people of the United States.
It’s been said over and over that somebody has to do something to change the direction this country is headed in. Well I’m somebody and my vote counts.
I will not vote not for a business as usual career politician whose interest is maintaining control or power at my expense in order to stay in office.
After more than 2 years in office my vote is still for Donald Trump, who as an outsider in politicals has the fortitude and determination to make decisive changes American government, so that America becomes that beacon of hope and light that our founding fathers saw as they laid down their very lives.
My trust is in God Almighty, who rises kings up and brings kings and world leaders down. Nothing escapes Him. Everyone is accountable to Him. God Bless President Donald J. Trump and God Bless the United States of America. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
