Asking me the wrong question

I was recently asked what I see in Trump. Wrong question. Should be: “What do I see in the Democratic party of today, which is not the FDR or JFK party?” I see hatred with a “get Trump” anyway they can, be it lying or underhanded politics. I see an unwillingness to accept an election. Our system allowed for Hillary or Trump. Tough choice, since the Clintons are the most corrupt politicians of my lifetime.

Right after the 2016 election, Democrats began discussing impeachment. They constantly need a new “get Trump” fix, motivated by hatred, not crimes. Saying Trump was keeping kids in cages used pictures from when Obama was president. Obama and Bush both separated kids. Stop watching fake news; they lie. All Democrats were for closing the border until Trump. Now, they want borders open and taxpayers paying for free medical, legal or illegal immigrants.

Many still believe Trump colluded with Russia. If Mueller didn’t find it, it didn’t happen. Every time they go after him, they come up empty.

Now another fake impeachment, not voted on by the House, and conducted in secret. No real evidence, just highly questionable anonymous sources. They don’t care, their mission is to destroy. I heard there is a real whistleblower who claims Pelosi said, “We have to impeach Trump so we can find out what he did.”

The Democrats of today practice “noble cause corruption.” Conservatives just want to live their lives with government out of it as much as possible. Liberals want you to live their way and believe the same as they do. Liberals don’t just believe conservatives are wrong, they are bad people. Remember, Obama said we cling to our guns and Bibles, and Hillary called us deplorables and irredeemables. Others call us racist. Charlie Rangle said, “They just don’t know what is good for them.” Excuse me Charlie, I do know what is good for me, and that is what freedom is about.  

Nothing Trump has done is a crime, while they ignore Biden’s confessed quid pro quo. Ever wonder what Obama said to Iran before he sent 1.5 billion tax dollars, in cash, on pallets, in the middle of the night, on a cargo plane, in secret? Obama was caught on a hot mic saying to the Russian outgoing president, “After my election I have more flexibility.” The Russian president replied, “I will transmit this information to Vladimir (Putin).” Let’s see transcripts of calls made by Obama. If today’s Democrats didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.

With Trump’s flaws, he’s still better than 2020 Democrats. They have gone nuts. What do 2020 candidates stand for? The worst: they defend abortion up to the day before birth and even withholding medical care from a baby born alive as a result of a botched abortion. They support open borders. Sanctuary states, like Oregon, make me wonder when the Democrats say, “no one is above the law,” why that doesn’t apply to illegals. Medicare for all will bust the system. Even Bernie Sanders admits taxes will rise, and not just on the rich. It ain’t free now, and it never will be. They want to destroy our Second Amendment. The Green New Deal — no more hamburgers because cows fart. Really? We only have 10 more years before they change the timeline again on global warming. Al Gore has been saying we only have 10 years to go for the last 30 years.

The Barr and Durham investigations are coming and will expose the corruption on the Democratic side. Buckle up.
