When Donald and Melania Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his presidential candidacy, they were met with unparalleled derision from all sides. Most importantly, he was derided by the so-called “political establishment,” inasmuch as virtually all major presidential candidates had arisen from the then existing political establishment.
The United States had endured nearly eight years of economic and libertarian strangulation under the Obama administration. Economic growth was virtually non-existent. The Federal Register was swamped with a dramatic increase in rules and regulations, which engendered both economic stagnation and psychological duress.
When Donald Trump assumed the presidency, the economic outlook began to change almost immediately. President Obama had begun his administration with an “apology tour,” traveling around the world, bowing to foreign leaders, and apologizing for all the things he perceived to be wrong with his country. This attitude was followed by an ever-increasing subservience to such foreign entities as the United Nations, which despite The United States being their perpetual major funder, has consistently maintained an anti-American attitude. President Trump, to his credit, has been attempting to reduce funding level and emphasize America First. His positive renewal of a “Morning in America” outlook helped to reignite a nationwide pride in this great country!
President Trump’s attempts to reassert limited government, individual liberty, and personal responsibility created a policy of economic growth and prosperity not seen in this country for decades. Such major economic indicators as Gross Domestic Product, Industrial Production, and Labor Force Participation Rate rose to new highs, thanks to freedom from the mismanagement of the Obama administration.
What had appeared to be a sudden manifestation, followed by the rapid expansion to a worldwide pandemic of the deadly Coronavirus, brought a rapid end to the United States, and other countries economic and health wellbeing. This, and the tragic George Floyd death seemed to provide the still largely muted base of left-wing malcontents, encouraged by the ever present paid professional troublemakers, with their long-awaited excuse to begin a rampage. The violence to innocent people of all ages, races, and religions, and the burning of commercial and private property has no parallel in modern American history.
A number of state and local politicians, ever anxious to increase their power, have imposed a variety of rules and restrictions on the public, some of which are constitutionally questionable. These may range from assembly and distance restrictions, what must be worn, and any other inconveniences they can think of.
The inefficiency and ineptitude of government, on all levels, anywhere in the world, is overwhelmingly indisputable. In the executive branch, whether the president is democrat or republican, cabinet, sub-cabinet and other high levels are likely to be occupied by well educated, highly capable, and ambitious individuals. The problem is that they give the orders, others are charged with implementing those orders.
The vast majority of the lower level bureaucrats carry out the work of government. They may or may not be well educated. They probably are not very capable. Because it is almost impossible to fire them, they do not need to be ambitious. Therefore, they have a natural propensity for increasing all the things that government can do for them and therefore they have always been left wing liberal democrats. That, plus exposure to union and media propaganda makes them naturally against the limited government president and likely to resist assisting in achievement of any of his goals if President Trump is reelected, notwithstanding the continued irrational opposition of the democrats, he will be freed of the restraints of pragmatic compromises necessitated by campaigning for reelection. He can continue to govern as the very successful executive who built a financial empire in the highly competitive, and often brutal, New York City real estate construction market!
Being a product of that market may have created a comportment that some think can be too aggressive or direct for a president. If that alone is to be considered a sufficiently compelling reason for a voting decision, the dire consequences of the alternative should be very carefully considered.
If Biden is elected president, his obviously diminished capacity, carefully hidden by his campaign and the major media, will inevitably result in an alternative de facto leadership of the United States. A consortium of Kamila Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and such mega donors as George Soros will run the country!
These politicians have tacitly supported socialism, widespread rioting, the burning of commercial and private properties, and assaulting people of all ages, races, and religions. As Nancy Pelosi recently stated, “people will be people.”
These same politicians have explicitly supported defunding the military, and defunding or eliminating some of local police departments. They support such radical ideas as eliminating the Electoral College, thereby disfranchising most of middle America. They support “packing” the Supreme Court with far-left jurists. All these extremes bow to the will of such ultra-radical groups as the BLM and Antifa.
A vote to re-elect President Trump will prevent the imposition of these ultra-radical ideas. He will continue to assure that the United States of America remains “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”
