If ever there was a time to stand on one’s principles and the principles that built America and made Her strong, it is now. The future of America is at stake, and for anyone to still be screaming “never Trump” is not very principled, especially in light of Donald Trump’s “America First” policies and the great speech he presented to the Detroit Economic Club recently. Screaming “never Trump” is actually fairly anti-American and immoral, if one understands that the alternative is Hillary Clinton and policies that are certain to undo the U.S. Constitution and destroy America.
Once one looks at the stark differences between the two candidates, despite any valid points myself and others made in opposition to Trump during the primary, one must ask the “never Trump” people, just what principles are you holding on to so tightly that you would pave the way for Hillary Clinton __ the most corrupt, dishonest and despicable politician in American history, a Chavez imitator and an Alinsky acolyte __ to win the presidency and implement plans that will kill the U.S. economy and individual liberty?
Donald Trump said it best on August 8th: [Hillary Clinton] supports the high taxes and radical regulation that forced jobs out of your community … and crime policies that made you less safe … and immigration policies that have strained local budgets … and the trade deals like NAFTA, signed by her husband, that have shipped our jobs to Mexico and other countries …”.
Ninety-four million Americans are currently outside the labor force, 14 million of those added under Obama, while American households are earning $4000 less than they were over a decade ago. And Progressive Democrat policies have driven seven million more Americans into poverty. Hillary Clinton offers more of the same.
The large number of Democratic promises to implement a massive socialist expansion of government, including everything from subsidized abortions and “sky-is-the-limit” confiscatory taxation to new job-killing regulations and the radical climate change agenda, makes the current $20 trillion national debt look like chump-change. Literally millions of new federal employees will be required to operate such an intrusive government.
As Trump noted in Detroit, “If you were a foreign power looking to weaken America, you couldn’t do better than Hillary Clinton’s economic agenda.”
During his speech at the Democratic National Convention, Bernie Sanders told the crowd: “Together, my friends, we have begun a political revolution to transform America, and that revolution, our revolution, continues.”
Hillary Clinton elaborated clearly in her acceptance speech, as she promised amnesty for approximately 30 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S. This is part of her greater plan to make these illegal aliens U.S. citizens with full voting rights, in order to build a permanent Democratic majority that controls America.
Hillary is also proposing a 550% increase in Syrian refugees, importing 65,000 Syrians in a single fiscal year in addition to the 149,000 Muslims granted green cards annually, and this would amount to roughly 214,000 in her first year as president. She could potentially resettle 1.5 million Muslims to America, if she served two terms. But Donald Trump promises to halt this Progressive insanity and all immigration from regions that support and export terrorism, like Syria.
The next President of the United States could potentially appoint four Supreme Court Justices. While Clinton will certainly appoint Leftist Supreme Court Justices, modeled after Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who regularly usurp the U.S. Constitution in favor of “social justice”, Trump will appoint Conservative Justices, similar to Antonin Scalia, with the possible exception of his sister, who respect the rule of law expressed in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, including the inalienable right to life and the Laws of Nature and God. Clinton will protect Obama’s anti-American policies, and Trump will rip Obama’s dastardly legacy up by its roots.
Donald Trump has proven that he will go bare-knuckles with Obama and Hillary on every major scandal and issue during their terms in office, from Fast and Furious and the Iranian Nuclear Deal to Benghazi, Hillary’s illegal email schemes and Pay-to Play corruption. This is his badge of honor. He is fighting to keep America from becoming far removed from the America of the 20th Century and far removed from anything resembling a nation founded on freedom and liberty, as envisioned by our Founders.
Trump’s finely articulated policy plans spoke of “jump [starting] America” out of “the weakest so-called recovery since the Great Depression” [only 1.2% growth], ending over-regulation that costs America $2 trillion annually and tax reforms for all Americans [Make America Grow Again]. He also offered logical, well-thought and common-sense ideas for energy and trade.
Without going into the details, part of Trump’s message stated: “A Trump administration will end this war on the American worker and unleash an energy revolution that will bring vast new wealth to our country … When we reform our tax, trade, energy and regulatory policies, we will open a new chapter in American Prosperity.”
How about crime? Trump claims the title of “the law and order president”. Clinton invited the mothers of thugs to speak at the DNC.
If this is really a matter of conscience and principle for the “never Trump” conservatives, are they actually prepared to hand Hillary the Oval Office by refusing to vote or vote third party? Or worse __ will many of them vote for Hillary, as some have suggested, setting in motion the completion of Obama’s destructive and catastrophic fundamental transformation of America?
How will they feel about their principles once America lies at their feet in shambles?
The principled vote is one cast for Donald Trump, who loves and fights for America, if “never Trump” conservatives are honest. If anyone believes Trump to be bad, Hillary, who loathes America and desires unrestrained power, is worse, as she coddles America’s enemies and neglects national security concerns. Hillary’s disastrous socialist ideas are pulled straight from the despots’ historical ash heap and the burial grounds of millions of their victims, nations destroyed by crushing poverty, civil strife and violence. Donald’s ideas are straight from traditional conservative principles that offer peace through strength and economic prosperity for our country. And economic prosperity, history proves, always provides greater individual liberty.
“We will put new American metal into the spine of this nation … Only by changing to new leadership, and new solutions, will we get new results. We need to stop believing in politicians, and start believing in America … We are ready to dream great things for our country once again. We are ready to show the world that America is Back –Bigger, and Better and Stronger Than Ever Before.” — Donald Trump speaking at the Detroit Economic Club on August 8th, 2016Tags: Donald Trump Hillary Clinton
