I love America for many reasons but some of them are demonstrated in the following comment left by Chris Swanson on one of my opinion videos posted on Facebook about three weeks ago titled “Drain The Swamp – P2: Impeachment, A Guide To Corruption.” I think it’s refreshing to read a robust opinion from someone who obviously didn’t just graduate from some leftist anti-American university, who combines an interesting lifetime of service to his country with a tall heaping of common sense, and who isn’t afraid to speak his mind with a significant lack of political correctness. Bully for them. In the name of free speech guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, I’m proud to do my part to show others what great Americans are really made of. God bless them for their candor.
When you point at Chris’s name with your computer mouse, it just says that she’s a clothes closet manager at Partners For Progress in Perryville, Arkansas, used to work at Dillard’s, and Campbell Chrysler Dodge, and that she’s from North Little Rock. You know, the heart of America where like so many of us, she grew up in a country surrounded by honest God-fearing people unafraid to speak their minds, that still do good by their neighbors, generally give people the benefit of the doubt until they prove themselves untrustworthy, don’t really care for socialism, respect our military, and from the bottom of their hearts, really do want to make America great again.
I’m talking about good people with good judgement or a good head on their shoulders. She began her comment by noting, ‘I didn’t write this, but it sure is a good read’. I agree with her, consider it a gift from the divine to be able to share it with you, and want to be sure to thank Chris Swanson as well. God bless.
Over the years, I’ve met all kinds of people from many rotten communist or Islamic countries like Cuba, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China, and Russia where my wife was born and raised, and they all have a real common problem. They don’t trust people. They often won’t confide in you and treat you with caution like you might cause them harm and who can really blame them.
In this country, Americans, born and raised, automatically take it for granted that if you choose to speak your mind, it’s highly unlikely that any significant consequence will happen, as long as you are not purposely trying to pick a fight. At most, you might obviously offend a stranger with your opinion but most of us figure, they’ll get over it and move on without giving it another thought. We sure as heck don’t imagine some secret police thugs waiting for us in the shadows just because we wrote an op-ed piece in the local newspaper.
America is way better than that, but it’s not that way in rotten countries. Scores of people get beat up, go missing, or end up dead every day for all kinds of mysterious or unknown reasons. So naturally, the survivors are gun shy and just don’t trust people. They’ve all had or heard unpleasant experiences that remind them to be cautious. They’ve learned to keep their mouths closed, their heads down, and their opinions to themselves.
Unfortunately, our American school system, funded with tax dollars and therefore taught by socialists, doesn’t usually allocate much time to explain how rotten world socialism really is. They usually don’t bother to mention that leftism, progressivism, being a Democrat, socialism, and communism are essentially, all the same thing. And that Islam isn’t any better. Under the self imposed guise of political correctness, they usually fail to mention facts like communism killed 100 million mostly innocent people in the last century, tortured and terrified many more, or that Islamic Shariah advocates the subjugation of women, slavery, the stoning to death of homosexuals and adulterers, hand amputation for thieves, death for apostates, and like communism, world domination. They’ll just say it’s a religion of peace or that our Great Depression was a failure of capitalism, rescued by a socialism, which just hasn’t been done properly yet.
So these teachers never even come close to describing the awful every day treatment experienced by millions in all these rotten countries. So most of our school graduates are left to assume that most people have it just like America, when in reality, millions throughout the world are psychologically ravaged and really unable trust their fellow man. This is an injustice that perpetuates misery and one of the many reasons why I support converting our education system into a purely free market one with no tax subsidizes for any school. And the fix is easy. Rebate all school taxes, sell off all school assets, and allow the private sector to fulfill 100 percent of all our education needs. Entirely remove the hand of government including no more compulsory education for anyone, just like the restaurant industry. Buy if you want to in a market where a variety of menus either satisfy customers or go out of business trying. Meanwhile, here’s the good read shared by Chris.
Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat cluster flock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that rotten Robert McNamara, Lyndon Baines Johnson, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.
After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his butt waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there were a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. Nixon was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.
Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ Carter who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 (That’s a category of discharge from the United States military, used for a service member judged mentally unfit for service. Section 8 was also often given to cross-dressers, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people.) and even the White House suffered the austerity. (Austerity is a set of political-economic policies that aim to reduce government budget deficits through spending cuts, tax increases, or a combination of both. Austerity measures are used by governments that find it difficult to pay their debts. The measures are meant to reduce the budget deficit by bringing government revenues closer to expenditures, which is assumed to make the payment of debt easier.)
Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they l loved him back. Esprit de corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism. Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he never did much either way.
Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the ‘Oral’ Office, sending a bomber to blow up Qadhafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the U.N. to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.
I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of World War II when they were ‘simply socialists’ waiting to feed him to the sharks.
Then there came the Manchurian candidate Obama with a faked (Ok Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your politically correct brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been ‘sealed.’ (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle, or their two faked kids.)
From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissension of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild compared to the crap that would come in, doubling the national debt from what had been built by all the previous presidents combined, feeding us BS about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries.
Fueled by George Soros’s money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charter, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had balls to impeach this charlatan Obama.
Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice Scalia suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some balls and rejects Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nomination. The libertards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros ‘has paid’ demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings. Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions who follow her.
But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum. Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince them to not even bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform. Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote … and creamed it.
The socialist world of the Democrat Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A constitutionalist would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the old hag Ginsburg who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually retire and leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of constitutionalists for the next 40-50 years.
Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election ‘was’ rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery, and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol. This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become.
Donald Trump may not be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-vast wimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Trump derailed the socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America. Donald Trump has already done more in his short time in the public eye. He prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming president!
So for you liberal lurkers and you half-vast fence-sitters, tough schiff! You had your big hurray and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with most of you too and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril. You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace.
This election was pure, unadulterated American! Hillary was beaten and America won the election. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you ‘forfeit’ your American citizenship, he is your president! Now, go cry a river some place they need water.
