Vote Trump

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Now is a very im­por­tant and life-chang­ing time in our coun­try. Many are ex­tremely dis­sat­is­fied with our cur­rent gov­ern­ment and feel the gov­ern­ment and it’s cur­rent pres­i­dent, Barack Obama, have not been forth­com­ing or trans­par­ent in pro­vid­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple in­for­ma­tion about what is oc­cur­ring in our own coun­try. Only later do we find out that the money be­ing paid to Iran was co­or­di­nated to co­in­cide along with the re­lease of hostages which is de­fined as ran­som, if you care to look it up.

I will use a quote by Dr. Phil which is very sim­ple but ac­cu­rately de­fines the prob­lem with our cur­rent gov­ern­ment: “You can­not change what you do not ac­knowl­edge.” Only one can­di­date has clearly de­fined the prob­lems in our coun­try and has ar­tic­u­lated he can solve them and will do his best to solve them, and that is the GOP nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump.

Yes, he is a flawed can­di­date, but all of the can­di­dates have their flaws and weak­nesses. He clearly loves his coun­try and will not ac­cept and does not need a salary. He has an ex­cel­lent grasp of trade and also has cre­ated jobs through his busi­ness and will be able to use his abil­ity and knowl­edge to cre­ate jobs once in the White House. He will put Amer­ica and its peo­ple first which is cur­rently not be­ing done. He will be tough in re­gards to for­eign pol­icy and has stated that he will do his best to keep Amer­ica safe in re­gards to ISIS and to re­strict­ing refugees com­ing into this coun­try un­til they can be prop­erly vet­ted. He rec­og­nizes the so­cial and racial un­rest in this coun­try and that law en­force­ment is not given the proper re­spect and that many in­ci­dents and fa­tal­i­ties oc­cur be­cause of a per­son sim­ply not com­ply­ing with what a po­lice of­fi­cer asks a per­son who is de­tained to do.

Trump will sur­round him­self with in­tel­li­gent peo­ple like Dr. Ben Car­son, Sen­a­tor Trey Gowdy and oth­ers who have sup­ported him and also are in­tel­li­gent enough to rec­og­nize the cur­rent sys­tem is bro­ken and that change is needed. He has se­lected an out­stand­ing run­ning mate, Mike Pence, who is a man of in­tegrity and also has clearly de­fined the prob­lems in our coun­try and how to solve them. Many were im­pressed with his vice pres­i­den­tial de­bate per­for­mance and thought he would make a good pres­i­dent.

Trump is con­cerned about our vet­er­ans and want to in­sure that they re­ceive the med­i­cal care, men­tal health care, as­sis­tance with ob­tain­ing jobs and hous­ing and ev­ery­thing they need as­sis­tance with to re­turn to civil­ian life af­ter serv­ing our coun­try and of­ten suf­fer­ing se­vere in­juries.

I ask you to not fo­cus on all the neg­a­tive press and ac­cu­sa­tions con­cern­ing this man, which I know have made many feel they can­not vote for him. But this is not a per­son­al­ity race and, al­though it makes us feel bet­ter when we like a can­di­date and can re­late to them, the ques­tion we should be ask­ing our­selves is “Can he or she do the job?” If you can run a busi­ness, you can run this coun­try.

I also ask you not to ac­cept what­ever you hear or watch on po­lit­i­cal news as be­ing com­pletely ac­cu­rate re­gard­ing all the can­di­dates. I reg­u­larly watch po­lit­i­cal news pro­grams and some are clearly bi­ased to­wards the Demo­cratic party and some for the Repub­li­can party. Of­ten one net­work will con­tra­dict what I just heard on an­other net­work. I view watch­ing them and re­search­ing on­line as gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion, al­though at times dis­cern­ing the truth is very dif­fi­cult.

If you are con­tent with the sta­tus quo or the way things are, then Clin­ton is your can­di­date. If you like my­self feel this coun­try is de­clin­ing and needs to move in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion and that elect­ing Clin­ton will be more of what we have had in re­cent years, I sug­gest you con­sider Trump. No, he doesn’t al­ways say the right things, but he went to Louisiana and do­nated sup­plies, money and com­fort while Obama was on the golf course and Hil­lary of­fered words of sup­port but was miss­ing in ac­tion.

Words ex­press our views but ac­tions speak louder than words. Don­ald Trump is a man of ac­tion and may not make Amer­ica great, but I be­lieve he will make Amer­ica bet­ter for all Amer­i­can peo­ple.
