It’s about our children’s America
As we go to the polls next Tuesday, to elect the next President of the United States, as well as many Senators and Congressmen, I would like to express my thoughts about the choices we, as Americans, have to make. This is, without question, the single most important election in American history. This choice will determine the direction America takes moving forward, and the America our children will have to live in. This election should not be about frivolous, mudslinging issues that really do not matter, but, should be about the core issues that will determine what kind of America we leave to our children. The truth is, this election is not about Democrats versus Republicans. It is, in my
humble opinion, about a very basic difference in the beliefs and philosophies of those two parties, and the people who support one versus the other.
We have two candidates for president: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. They have strongly divergent views on what America should be going forward.
On the one hand, we have, by her own account, a liberal, career politician, who feels that America should have open borders, should grant immunity/ citizenship to the estimated 5 million
illegal immigrants who are already in the country, should allow 100,000 refugees to come to America without any kind of vetting, should continue to fund Planned Parenthood which promotes abortions, should continue with Obamacare, which is expecting increases in premiums of 20-110 percent
next year alone, should increase federal income taxes, should allow same sex marriage, should continue with Common Core teaching of our youth, which has produced children who do not measure up to the children in other nations, should continue with the Iran nuclear deal, and should support NAFTA and other trade agreements which have proven to be detrimental to our country. Under the current, Democratic president, who Hillary wants to emulate, the U.S. deficit has ballooned to $14 trillion. Additionally, Hillary wants to further reduce our military’s strength and numbers, and has espoused her belief that if we just ‘be nice’ to the dictators, despots, and terrorist regimes around the world, then they will be nice to us in return. Additionally, Hillary has shown by her actions, including abandoning our brave men in Benghazi, “bleach-bitting” her e-mail
servers after being ordered to provide all of her e-mails to investigators, lying under oath, and refusing to answer simple yes or no questions before Congress, that she is only concerned about one thing, and it is not America. She is only concerned about what is best for Hillary.
On the other hand, we have a billionaire businessman, who has chosen to temporarily set aside his business dealings in order to pursue the office of president. He believes that America needs to change course, and wants to put an end to the status quo, by returning America to a government by the people and for the people. He wants to eliminate government waste, do away with burdensome government regulations, and free up businesses to generate more jobs for Americans. He wants to renegotiate our trade deals to make them better for America, and the American worker. He wants to bring jobs back to America by making a level playing field for businesses in America. He wants to build a strong military to defend America. He wants to make sure that our veterans are well taken care of, and not forgotten for their service to our country. He wants to defund Planned Parenthood, and wants women to make the decision about having a baby before they go into the bedroom, not at the abortion clinic. He wants to renegotiate the horrible trade deals that have caused America to lose not only jobs, but entire industries, and bring those jobs back to America, and American workers. He wants to close our borders, and deport all of those who are in our country illegally, while still being true to America’s legacy by allowing immigrants to apply for legal admission, and citizenship, and carefully vetting anyone who applies for immigrating into America. He wants to repeal Obamacare . He wants to work on reducing our national debt, and wants to make sure that Congress stops raiding the Social Security fund for their own purposes, and make Social Security solvent going forward. He wants to bring back the education system that served this Country so well for so many decades and do away with Common Core curriculums. Mr. Trump has certainly said some ill-advised things, things he has regretted saying, but none of us are perfect, and neither is he. But, the bottom line is, he speaks the truth, whether politically correct or not, and that is what America needs moving forward. Perhaps the biggest reason I see for voting for Mr. Trump, is that he truly loves America, and he is not beholden of anyone or anything, other than to turn America back into a country of values, morals, honor, honesty, hard work, strength and respect.
One last thing for you to consider before you vote. The next president will likely appoint at least two, if not three, or perhaps even four, Supreme Court justices. Those appointments will determine the court’s decisions for many, many years, and the question you have to ask yourself is: What kind of Supreme Court do you want for your children’s America? God bless you, and God bless America.
