When candidate Donald Trump famously rode down the escalator at Trump Tower to officially kick off his presidential campaign, there was a sense of renewed hope for our beloved republic. I thought and still believe that his Make America Great Again #MAGA theme was representative of what was sorely needed. After all, Americans from all walks of life had endured the drudgery of eight long years of the most unrecognizable economic recovery ever.

The Obama administration hampered every aspect of our lives with regulations that stifled progress. Our position as the world’s number one economic engine was on the verge of being challenged and ultimately collapse. Obama’s war against our petroleum industry made us sitting ducks in the competitive international struggle between the United States and the Islamic Middle East OPEC Nations.  

The Obama/Biden regime refused to properly maintain our military. Our nation was militarily vulnerable and could have been challenged on a series of fronts. The former president literally flooded almost every federal government department with die hard leftists. It was no longer a government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Many Obama era mid level government paper pusher holdovers gleefully bogged things down. Donald Trump understood that if proper measures were not take, our good way of life would soon end up in the ash heap of history.  

Mr. Trump’s upbeat message of Make America Great Again ignited a resurgence of optimism many thought was gone forever. The Trump Train hit the political tracks and made it all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Almost immediately, the enemies of our republic, both foreign and domestic were put on notice, that for the first time in decades they would be challenged. Both the Democrat party and RINO swamp dwellers went to nutsville. They could not believe that their goal to literally destroy our republic and turn her into a Saul Alinsky designed hell hole would be delayed or stopped for good. 

As often as candidate and later President Trump proclaimed the need to drain the swamp, even he had no idea how deep it remains and how many swamp dwellers there were.  

Despite little help from his friends and constant opposition from the enemies of both our president and “We the People”, amazing things were achieved. The lowering of corporate taxes, and getting rid of numerous burdensome regulations was high on the list. Those two actions alone produced record economic growth which included the rebirth of massive entrepreneurship. Small, medium and major corporate businesses were thriving all over the country. 

Those on the political left remained so blinded by their hatred of President Trump, that they never did see the historical numbers and progress being made for every sector of America. Trump stood up to illegal border crossers, China, and so called European allies who have been swinding the United States for decades.

The president was reestablishing United States authority in the world, which went against the globalist mission to permanently weaken our worldwide prestige and power.  

The leftist democrats and some RINOS were not happy to learn that Trump administration policies opened the door to the greatest number of black Americans, women and Hispanics gainfully employed ever in our nations history. Small business ownership was growing. 

But low and behold, the leftists got a gruesome gift called Coronavirus from China. 

Leftist politicians were privately celebrating as Americans gave up their freedoms for the so-called safety of a massive one size fits all lock down. When you couple the China virus calamity with the riots that began on the night George Floyd died in Minneapolis, the leftist Trump haters finally got their wish. 

They have been wanting to see the middle class punished for supporting Trump, who has dared to act on his promise to put our national interests above that of globalists and other nations. The leftists in government, the medical industry and pointy headed professors all conspired through a series of lies, exaggerations and unconstitutional demands that have done more harm than good. 

Already, over 25 percent of restaurants across America have been shut down permanently. Leftist mayors like Bill de Blasio of New York City have permitted rioters to destroy another twenty percent of businesses and prevented the police from protecting tax paying law abiding citizens.  

This alone shows their blatant disregard for the Constitution which points out the important duty of government to protect the people and our nation from enemies both foreign and domestic. The Seattle mayor allowing men to literally rape husbands in front of their wives and children in front of their parents in the Chop zone was a sterling example of destruction by permission. To me it all adds up to punishing Americans indiscriminately. 

Let’s hope the leftists have overplayed their demonic hands and voters make them pay on November third at the voting booth.

God bless you, God bless America and may America bless God.
