WELL, OUR LEGISLATORS HAVE FINALLY STOOD UP AND ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING FOR ‘WE THE PEOPLE’. THE TAX REFORM BILL HAS PASSED.

I CERTAINLY REALIZE THAT SOME ARE NOT HAPPY. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT IT WILL ALWAYS BE AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TASK TO PLEASE EVERYONE. WE ALL KNOW THAT, AND IT IS TIME WE SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FACT. THESE MEN AND WOMEN HAVE OVER THREE HUNDRED MILLION FOLKS TO SATISFY. FOR WHAT I HAVE ABSORBED SO FAR, IT IS A VERY GOOD PIECE OF LEGISLATURE. IN A DEMOCRACY SUCH AS OURS, WITH SO MANY DIVERSE PERSONALITIES, BACKGROUNDS, AND NEEDS, WE CAN ONLY ACCEPT THAT SOME OF US MUST SACRIFICE CERTAIN OF OUR OWN SPECIAL NEEDS AND WANTS FOR THE GOOD OF ALL.

I FEEL THERE IS SOME GOOD AND PRACTICAL ITEMS WITHIN THIS BILL. UNDERSTANDING HOW EACH ISSUE AFFECTS THE OTHER, AND THE BENEFITS TO ALL, IN THE LONG HAUL, SHOULD MAKE IT ACCEPTABLE.

TIME FOR ALL AMERICANS TO PUT THE MANY ABOVE THE FEW.

BLACK LIVES MATTER??? OF COURSE, JUST AS ALL LIVES MATTER. AND NO ONE SECT OF OUR CITIZENRY OWES ANYTHING TO ANOTHER!

NO ONE, IS ABOVE ALL. MUSLIM LAWS ARE GOOD FOR MUSLIMS; CHRISTIAN LAWS ARE GOOD FOR CHRISTIANS; NON RELIGIOUS ISSUES SHOULD BE KEPT WITHIN THE NON-RELIGIOUS SECT; RELIGIOUS FOLKS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO SERVE AND BELIEVE AS THEY WISH.

IT IS TIME FOR ALL TO REALIZE AND ACCEPT THAT THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED AND FORGED BY CHRISTIAN MEN. (BLACK & WHITE). THE LAWS WERE ACCEPTED AND ENACTED WITH THE CHRISTIAN BELIEFS. THEREFORE, IT SHOULD BE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION, AND ALL BELIEFS ARE ALLOWED TO RESIDE HEREIN. DO NOT PUSH OUT THE LAWS AND VALUES THAT ARE THE BASIS AND STRONG FOUNDATION FOR THIS NATION THAT SO MANY WANT TO CALL HOME.
IF YOU COME HERE AND TRY TO CHANGE WHAT YOU CAME FOR, THEN WHY DID YOU COME?

YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A BETTER LIFE, AND YOU HAVE FOUND IT. LEAVE IT GROW, IN PEACE AND LOVE, AND ACCEPT OUR LAWS AND VALUES.
