The Pain of Unexpected Change

Politicians are elected to serve the people of America, not themselves or their party; and, the Constitution is the infallible guide to their deliberations and their votes. American politics is like a pendulum, popular for awhile, then losing favor swinging to another view...

Evidence of the lefts collapse into puddles of gelatinous protoplasm continues as evidence mounts daily in the flurry of negative and, may I also add, fake news stories condemning Donald Trumps leadership as President. They see it as a harbinger of a Trump dictatorship. But, having confirmed their reputations as liars, no one believes them and they can’t make it stick. The sky is not falling but the pain of change is unbearable to those who think so.

Trump is doing what he said he was going to do and they can’t really stop him. It’s painful. Clearly, Brexit set into motion a new wave of nationalism and populism. Trumps election confirmed to other Europeans that a way does exist for their frustrated citizens to throw off the yoke of unwanted Socialism imposed from Brussels. The gates have opened that will start a flood that probably can’t be stopped by the efforts of any New World Order.

Nigel Farage of Britain’s Independence Party saw it this way: “There is a genuine feeling that Trump taking over the White House is part of a bigger, global movement. Our critics, looking at Trump’s candidacy and his speech yesterday, would call it the rise of populism. I would say it’s simply a return to nation-state democracy and proper values … This is a genuine political revolution.” It’s the pain of unexpected change and they don’t know what to do about it.

A former Obama era security advisor was even brazen enough to suggest that the US military would probably have to stage a coup to rid America of its hated Trump. I don’t know what this advisor was smoking, but if Americas military ever had a reason to stage a coup, it would have been against the feckless Barak Obama. Oh, the pain continues. They love Donald Trump.

It is noteworthy to tell readers that even at Obama’s Pentagon farewell address to the military, where he awarded himself a participation medal, there wasn’t enough GI personnel in the vast chasm of an auditorium to pay the light bill. Obama spoke to a nearly empty house.

The hysteria over Trump’s immigration ban, especially after Trump’s “tweet” calling that jurist a “so called judge,” really roiled the sea of leftist discontent. Maybe Trumps tweets are inappropriate, maybe not, but one thing is certain, he get’s the issues out in the open where both sides are talking about ‘em and where the voters can tweet their two cents worth and then, moving beyond the hyperbole, the truth eventually comes out. The press still lies!

Some leftists claim Trumps ‘tweet’ against the judge was unprecedented. Well, it wasn’t! Does no one recall Obama’s State of the Union address, where he publicly chastised the Supreme Court for its Citizens United decision? The Democrats cheered wildly. Nothing is unprecedented in politics. Democrats (liberals) would have us believe that their judges are sacrosanct. But, when they lose at the ballot box they go straight to their activist judges to circumvent the will of the people. Liberals have shown no scruples about bypassing the constitution when it advances their narrative. Therein lies the precursors for real tyranny. Trump will sweep that all away.

Politicians are elected to serve the people of America, not themselves or their party; and, the Constitution is the infallible guide to their deliberations and their votes. American politics is like a pendulum, popular for awhile, then losing favor swinging to another view, but always, the Constitution must remain their guide. This applies to Presidents and Judges too. The Congress has got to reclaim its legislative authority under Trump, before another Democrat takes office.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s make America great again!
