Not Ready for Hillary
While the polls are not looking good for Donald Trump, I can’t imagine Americans are foolish enough to vote for Hillary Clinton. There are 94 million evangelicals as well as 4.5 million NRA members, 119 million men, and 46.5 million people on food stamps. I don’t see these disaffected groups sitting home this November and allowing Hillary and progressives to push for more gun control, raise higher taxes and regulate you from cradle to grave.
Progressives see nothing wrong with your daughter showering with RuPaul nor getting a sex change without your consent. They believe it’s okay for your kids to smoke pot and they support making them unemployable with absurd minimum wage laws. I know a lot of Republicans may not like Trump but I know Republicans will not accept the bitter taste of Progressivism without a fight.
I hear the media say they’re ready for Hillary but what I’m hearing from social media is they want someone to clean house. People are fired up and enthused for Trump. They’re appalled by images of riots in Milwaukee and Black Lives Matter. These aren’t white men but black men that are tired of African Americans crying about police brutality while staying silent about black-on-black crime. I hear people say they are tired of millennials who throw temper tantrums when they can’t get things for free. They’re tired of political correctness and groupthink. They want to be freed.
People don’t support Donald Trump because they like or agree with him. A vote for Trump is a vote against elites that claim to be our betters but got us into intractable wars, massive deficits and turned virtually every American city into warzones. They say Trump is losing but I don’t see Americans wanting a third term of President Barack Obama, which Hillary has promised. I don’t see any enthusiasm with declining wages, 1 percent GDP growth, high taxes and excessive regulation. I can’t see Americans wanting more open borders or taking in anymore Syrian refugees.
I don’t believe the narrative that Americans are happy with their standing in the world. We are no longer respected. Are Americans happy with a president who called ISIS a JV team, played
golf when a jihadist sawed off someone’s head on national television and presided over riots in Ferguson, Baltimore and Milwaukee while the media tells us Americans want more of this?
With all the evidence about the corruption of Hillary Clinton, I wonder why people still support her. I wonder if there’s hope for America. I hear Street Sense vendors who have been the greatest victims of liberalism explain their reason for supporting Hillary because they believe it’s time we had a women president.
Really? What has she done for women? Do they know or care about her record with women? She began her career representing a man accused of raping a 12 year old girl. Although she once tweeted “every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported,” the Clinton foundation has taken millions of dollars from countries such as Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Qatar that have a deplorable record regarding women’s rights.
Although many blacks foolishly call Bill Clinton our “First Black President,” many young African Americans don’t know that Bill Clinton kicked off his campaign in 1992 by temporarily suspending it to witness the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, this man who was so mentally impaired he requested to have his last meal saved for later. Before she began singing at black churches and carrying hot sauce, her husband Bill Clinton supported mass incarceration with the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. Hillary Clinton aggressively lobbied for the act by calling young black men “Super Predators” that needed to be brought to heel.
Many African Americans hate Donald Trump because of Birtherism, but guess who else questioned Obama’s background? In 2007 then-senator Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist, Mark Penn, wrote a now-infamous campaign memo laying out his overall plan to win the election. Penn wrote, “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.” Penn proposed targeting Obama’s “lack of American roots.”
I don’t know if Trump is losing, but I do know there is plenty of enthusiasm. This is the most important election in history. I’m urging evangelicals, gun owners, value voters and alpha males to get all hands on deck. Democracy is on the ballot and Donald Trump is the only person standing in the way between being a free country or being transformed into Venezuela or Brazil. It’s your choice: let’s make America great again!
