KNEE-JERK OBSTRUCTIONISM: They Just Don’t WANT To Make America Great Again

Written by William Pauwels on February 15, 2017

Were it not for small-town America and the majority of US counties that voted for the Republican ticket in the last election, our nation would be experiencing a third term of the do-nothing, weak-kneed Obama administration. (Hey, I was once a voting Democrat, but the party left me with Pres. Lyndon Johnson’s so-called Great Society – really a quasi-Socialistic society. And it’s been downhill ever since.)

The majority of citizens in America’s productive states voted in favor of traditional American Values – the traditional American-Way* – and America’s traditional Prosperity Machine*. They’ve elected President Donald Trump and Vice-President Michael Pence – two men committed to the traditions that have made America the greatest nation in the history of mankind.

Unfortunately, the leftist elites on the East and West Coasts simply cannot handle their loss of power – their ability to impose de facto Marxist/Socialist/Progressive Leftism on the people of our nation. Despite the gross failings of the Obama administration and the Democrat Congress since 2007 – they desperately want more of the same, i.e., political power, quasi-Socialism, drugs, free-sex, the right to kill unborn babies, irresponsible immigration, open borders, secularism, globalism, etc. They refused to recognize the downhill slide that our nation has experienced since the 1960s under Democratic Party influence.

Shame! Shame! Shame! on NY Senator Schumer. He cries on TV. His stomach turns during a press conference. All driven by President Trump’s effort to build a cabinet and administration with America’s most talented, proven achievers – and to get things done sooner rather than later.

Clearly, the Democrat party was totally unprepared for the Trump victory last November. They were totally disconnected from mainstream America and, instead, focused on leftist, big-city elites and coastal voters. And the Dems were even more unprepared for Trump’s action program – three weeks of unprecedented Presidential effort since his inauguration. Even after his election, the President-Elect went to work immediately – unlike his predecessors who, more often than not, took lengthy, elaborate vacations. Not Trump! He’s a worker – like most of the people who voted for him. (Most of the 3141 counties in the USA voted for Donald Trump.)

While President Trump spent his first three-weeks working in search of jobs, national security, domestic investment, fair trade, international relations, downsizing government . . . the Dems – under the obstructionist leadership of New York Senator Chuck Schumer – spent their time smearing everything-Trump, with the aid of their liberal and leftist friends in the media.

Well, at last we have a political leader who works and puts America first. Give him your full and active support . . . and denounce the obstructionist, smear-Trump Democrats and Leftist Media!

Our youngsters – rioting in the streets and at our taxpayer-funded universities – have little recollection and/or appreciation for when America was the unprecedented social and political leader of the world. They want their drugs, secularism, free-sex, abortions, etc., as a first priority. They are easily manipulated by irresponsible, leftist Democrats, de facto Marxists/Socialists/Progressives and supporting journalists. Hopefully, when they grow up, they will recognize how ill-informed and reckless they were. In the meantime, the adults must lead and speak out to family, friends and neighbors – to keep AMERICA SAFE AND GREAT AGAIN!

*The American-Way ― *The American Prosperity Machine: Traditional Judeo/Christian principles and values . . . the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness . . . freedom of speech, action, religion and family governance . . . an educated and informed society . . . freedom from gender and racial discrimination . . . affordable healthcare . . . the rule of Constitutional Law . . . the peaceful settlement of disputes . . . honest elections and presidential leadership . . . patriotic, truthful, checks-&-balanced, limited government . . . a strong military . . . cost-effective national defense . . . secure borders . . . the right of citizens to own and bear arms . . . free, competitive markets and institutions . . . properly-regulated, free-enterprise . . . balanced trade . . . private property rights . . . low cost, domestically supplied energy and natural resources . . . controlled immigration . . . individual responsibility and ingenuity . . . entrepreneurialism . . . businesses and enterprises that exist to meet the needs, wants and expectations of customers . . . a strong work ethic . . . full employment . . . fair pay . . . appropriate safety nets . . . low taxes . . . a strong, reliable currency . . . financial availability, mobility, and responsibility (balanced budget, minimal debt) . . . Competitive, Free-Market, Free-Enterprise, Constitutionally Limited Government . . . and American Exceptionalism.
