Are Non-Political, America-First Voters Starting to Drop the Ball On MAGA Agenda?

Written by William Pauwels on December 19, 2017

In 2016, American voters were disgusted with elitist, leftist politicians. Voters came out in droves to elect a non-politician. Donald Trump is that non-politician.

Candidate Trump promised to “Make America Great Again” – to Put America-First Again. And in less than one year he has accomplished more in that direction than any president since World War II.

Trump is a determined businessman who understands what makes the business world tick. He understands – if the economy flourishes, American workers will prosper.

The wealth of our nation has increased by almost $6 trillion since the presidential election in 2016. The GDP is up 3.1%. (It would be close to 4% if the hurricanes had not happened.) Just examine individual IRA growth since Trump was elected.

Employment is on the rise. Over 2.5 million new jobs have been created. And tens of thousands of new jobs are available. Great news indeed!

Pres. Trump is determined to bring $4 trillion of foreign profit back into the USA. Even half of that would produce a tremendous, positive impact on our economy – and especially on our manufacturing industries and related areas of the country.

The forthcoming tax cuts are right around the corner and will benefit both individuals and businesses. Many of the benefits are not conspicuous and/or generally appreciated by the general public, but they will have an enormous effect on American prosperity. For example, the change to a one-year write-off of capital investments will greatly enhance the economy and America’s global competitiveness. And this will produce growth, tax revenues, and jobs.

However, the Trump America-First Agenda will not succeed if the Democrats have their way by blocking every aspect of it. They have contributed virtually nothing to our current economic advancement. They have a smear-everything-Trump agenda and are determined to bring him down. To hell with Trump’s promises and American prosperity. And with the help of the leftist mainstream media, Hollywood, false accusations, and the under-reporting of Trump accomplishments – the Dems may just succeed. They’ve manipulated the American voter for decades without delivering, and they could do it again. Yuck!

Recent elections indicate that the grassroots, Republican/Conservative/Libertarian/Religious voters who elected Trump in 2016 are NOT showing up at the polls, e.g., in Virginia and Alabama. 90% of the Democrat voters showed up at the polls in Alabama – while only 50% of the Trump voters showed up! Not good!

This inadequate conservative turnout has enabled elitist, leftist, socialistic Democrats to enhance their political strength and downplay the Trump Agenda. Their goal is to restore the Obama/Clinton/Pelosi/
Schumer/Democrat/Socialistic/Quasi-Marxist agenda, which gave us eight years of a stagnant economy, poor job growth, trade imbalance, a declining military, out-of-control borders and immigration, excessive government spending, increasing taxation, etc.

The non-political Trump voters do not want Obama-lite again – but they must get out and vote or they will get it again. They are fighting determined political, power-hungry, centralist/globalist politicians.

Trump voters have given the Trump America-First Agenda a track to run on. They have made it happen in 2017 and they can make it happen as we go forward – but they must get out the vote to make it happen again – to indeed make America Great Again. VOTE!
