Were you or your family one of the tens of millions that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign focused upon as the “forgotten Americans”? What did it mean for you when the new president took the oath of office on January 20 to become the 45th President of the United States? What are your own expectations for this new president that will bring you and your family out of the shadows of an America whose former president and liberal mainstream media sought to abandon?
As noon arrived in the nation’s capital and the new president set into motion an administration that returned the power of government to its people and ripped it away from the “do-nothing politicians” the die was cast. The course correction had to send hurricane force shudders through the hearts of the Washington elite when President Trump said its power would be handed back to “forgotten Americans”.
Think about how the nation’s heartland saw job after job leave its cities and family after family lose their homes while the former president talked about the importance of globalization. How painful was it for each American that openly stared into envelope after envelope from creditors, lenders, mortgage companies and repossession firms that plagued their lives in growing numbers ever since January 20, 2009. The nation was in free fall without a safety net.
Worse than having no true safety net to assist millions of Americans whose families were decimated from a president who made it his business to use the EPA to destroy whole businesses like the coal industry, was having a president who protected global markets that reduced American jobs to a pale image of its former vibrancy. Obama did not care about the families or children of America who were the nation’s rightful heirs.
Obama denied their rightful heritage and instead focused on granting illegal immigrants the unearned and certainly illegal access to jobs, education, housing, college, and welfare subsidies. Meanwhile the nation’s citizens who were pushed over the economic and spiritual edge were left to rot.
The promises of the American Dream were no longer accessible for Americans and their challenges were mowed over by liberal mainstream media hand maidens of Obama. When the heartland Americans formed the Tea Party as a reaction to the growing effort of Obama to destabilize the nation through a new socialist healthcare system known as Obamacare, the rebellion was on.
When the 44th president trained his executive pen’s artillery on attacking and marginalizing Christianity beginning in March of 2009, he made certain that every aspect of American life was impacted. He made certain that Bibles in military academies, public displays of Christian prayer at public meetings, and even displays of Christ or White House Christian cards images were ended or removed. Meanwhile he celebrated Muslim observances and even focused on Muslim holidays at events at the White House. Again, America’s Biblical values and principles were executive ordered out of existence during his administration.
After eight years of near dictatorial tyranny of the liberal elite and Obama sycophants, Donald Trump told Americans that he, unlike the then president would stand up for them, fight for them and Make America Great Again for them.
It was this man and his mission that spoke to the heart and spirit of the America that had been forgotten. It was why on presidential inauguration 2017, the forget man and woman can come into the sunlight and embrace a restored greatness in America.
The torch has been passed, not just to President Trump but to America as well. He stressed in his inauguration speech, “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer,” and added, “And I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never, ever let you down.”
That is a presidential commitment that all Americans and especially the nation’s formerly forgotten can celebrate.
