The more that the mainstream media attacks Donald Trump, the better fans like him. The television pundits just keep distorting his position to discredit him with only a glimmer of what he has really said.
Now, truthfully, he says way too much, but largely what he says no one else has the guts to say, and his attack on many issues is right on target. That’s why many independents, Republicans and even some Bernie Sanders supporters like him.
Bottom line is that we want some real changes in America, making a difference and saving this country from the destructive path of debt and appeasement that we have been following for past decades. It is time for a different direction and new leadership, rather than all insiders.
We need better business deals. Trump is right on corporations leaving the United States for cheaper labor and tax-free deals in foreign countries. Trump is right about destroying ISIS immediately. Just watch ISIS start to relocate to Libya. Trump is right about screening Middle Eastern refugees being infiltrated by ISIS.
I think he is wrong on building a wall, but we must stop illegal immigration and terrorists entering the border. He can figure out a registration system for our illegal workforce to earn citizenship. The majority of the illegal and legal Latin American workforce does most of the hard work in America, like roofing, cleaning, cooking and highway construction. They want to assimilate into our culture, which is partially Hispanic, with Spanish ancestors having been in America before the colonists.
The list goes on. Sure, Trump sticks his foot in his mouth and makes some rash statements. However, something likeable is he doesn’t backtrack, waffle or apologize for his goofs. He sticks by his guns and forges ahead, regardless of what the pundits and mass media say about his positions. He is right most of the time, not always. Who can be right on all of the issues facing America?
He is a smart business leader and will have the skills to bring some great people into his cabinet and to his leadership team. He’s already named some Supreme Court justice nominees, something that Hillary Clinton has not done.
Trump will need an excellent vice-president, maybe John Kasick, who would deliver Ohio votes, maybe “Little Marco.” He needs a partner who understands the legislative process. Trump cannot be king and cannot run the Oval Office like the Trump organization.
I didn’t want to see another Bush vs. Clinton election and was eager to watch the 17 candidates compete for the nomination. Bernie Sanders started out as a joke and has ended up with the last laugh as a strong player in the Democratic Party. He will have a major impact on the Democratic platform. Too bad that he is a socialist and believes in more government, not less. Socialism has failed around the world with the most recent example in our backyard with Venezuelans now starving in that once oil-rich nation on the brink a major civil war.
Another Trump strength will be his experience in creating jobs, commerce and industry, something that a free-enterprise nation must have to maintain a higher standard of living for all—profits for business and better-paying jobs for the folks who do the heavy lifting for all businesses, large and small.
I have no doubt that Trump will defend the Second Amendment. I’m a gun owner and feel that the citizens should be armed as well as any invading militia. I think that was the intent of this amendment, to have a well-armed citizen militia, still true to this day.
How do we screen folks who haven’t been charged with any crime, have no criminal records and decide they can’t buy and own a gun?
Seems an impossible task and could be very intrusive on innocent gun owners’ rights to keep and bear arms. Everyone could be a suspect for some alleged action or statement. There isn’t an easy answer, but giving an inch usually results in wanting to take a mile. This goes for freedom of the press, speech and religion.
There can be little compromise on the American freedoms to be celebrated July 4 across our land.
Make sure you cast your primary-election ballot, and if you didn’t receive one in the mail go to a county office and make sure that you are registered for the general election. Voter apathy is one of the hidden dangers of our democracy. A sad commentary when our very lives depend upon future leadership of this nation.
Here are a few primary ballot endorsements of people that I know and feel confident in their abilities to serve the pubic well:
My U.S. Senate vote goes to one time CSU quarterback and veteran businessman Jack Graham, someone you should meet and get to know. A real class act and experienced in the insurance world, which is so important now with health-insurance challenges. He is assisted by his his talented wife Ginger. This couple will make Colorado proud in Washington D.C.
Katy Brown, city councilwomen in Cherry Hills Village, deserves your vote for state representative in District 3. Very talented young lady who has business skills to share her talents with the state.
Susan Beckman, an outstanding county commissioner, who has the experience to represent the county very well. Part of good government is to start at the local level, planning commissions, school boards, city councils, and then move up the leadership ranks. She has done her homework and will be a strong leader in state government. Arapahoe County has really good fiscal discipline and an excellent credit rating due to strong commissioner leadership by Susan and her colleagues.
Over in Aurora, no one represents Aurora better than Rhonda Fields. Term-limited in the House, she is now moving on to Senate District 29, where she will be an obvious easy winner. She has done a marvelous job chairing the Local Affairs Committee.
