Trump has been a huge disappointment. I was actually a Bernie supporter but, once Hillary, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, et. al. sandbagged him it was obvious that Trump was the only viable choice left.
I was hoping that he would actually do something about the crappy trade agreements we signed up for–which hurt American workers and favor foreign countries which can’t compete fairly against our products and workers. But he’s failed to make any moves on that front, more’s the pity. What’s so galling is that he knows better.
Aside from Madeline Albright sending any women who didn’t vote for Hillary to hell, it was obvious Mrs. Clinton has not the temperament, the leadership skills, or the skill sets needed to be an effective president. So the only other choice was Trump.
While I would have loved to be able to cast a vote for a viable female presidential candidate, she wasn’t it. It seems to me Hillary’s two top skills are holding onto her husband’s popularity coattails and taking credit for the achievements of others.
Worse, it seemed certain that all she would do is poison the well for future women who might legitimately seek the presidency.
On the other hand, Trump is right about immigration, open borders and “free trade” which is pretty damn expensive for American workers.
Immigration reform should be a high priority. Just look at what’s happening in Europe. Why on earth has Europe fallen for that open borders foolishness? Ever hear of “stranger danger”? Did Angela Merkel and the rest of the fatuous leaders in Europe even take a look at the place from whence Europe is now permitting millions of immigrants to flood their continent? It’s nothing but conflict there. Women are treated like dirt there. Human rights aren’t even a hypothetical construct in most of the Middle East. (And we wound up taking in a bunch of these folks in too, even though it wasn’t as many as liberals would have liked.)
The last time there was a Muslim invasion of Europe it didn’t turn out well for Europeans. Turns out the Saracens/Muslims weren’t all that nice. Not to mention, there hasn’t been a single invention or advance in science, economics, research, or invention among that demographic for centuries. What, exactly, do Europeans think these interlopers are bringing to the table?
It took a hell of an effort to pry the Saracens/Muslim out of Europe the last time. Badass Charles Martel “The Hammer” managed it, at great personal risk to himself, at the Battle of Tours/Poitiers in 732. Now a bunch of witless liberals are handing the continent back to these extremely violent people–for “humanitarian” reasons. Talk about irony!
Why not resettle Middle Eastern refugees in the Middle East? Maybe that makes too much sense for people who live in a comfy, coddled society where they don’t seem to notice who keeps murdering residents and blowing stuff up.
What does history call people who won’t defend themselves and their culture?
I’m with Trump on the immigration issue. Logic says he’s right, even if political correctness stipulates otherwise.
Grow up liberals–it’s a big bad world out there and there are a ton of people in it who would just love to take your stuff, your land, your rights. Grit your teeth and learn to say “NO”! And ditch the idiots who insist on seeing the world as they wish it were, in favor of cold-eyed realists who can face ugly reality and understand what it takes to maintain sovereignty.
Control borders and have some sense about letting strangers run riot in your countries. Do it while they still are your countries. Are you listening, U.S. Congress? Probably not.
