Make America Great Again


We need a great president.
DONALD TRUMP

At the outset, I want to say that I don't think Donald Trump will be a great president. I'm not even sure that he will even be president. But he is right about one thing. This country needs a great president. Hillary Clinton is definitely not that president. That leaves Trump. It is now my task to convince you to vote for this man.

Think back over the last disastrous eight years of Barack Obama as president. Now, do you want four more years of this? Do you want more Obamacare? Do you want more of this recession that Obama economists deny is a recession? Do you believe you are better off now than you were eight years ago? If you answered yes to these questions, you simply vote for Hillary Clinton. There is no way that woman is going to make things better after Obama. On the basis of Obama alone, you should not vote for Hillary Clinton and vote for Donald Trump instead.


Now, this first argument is based purely on the disaster of Obama. When you look at Hillary Clinton, this is a woman who is more crooked than Richard Nixon could ever imagine much less be. The FBI is in near revolt because they know the Obama administration is going to let her skate on felonious acts that should put her in prison for the rest of her life. Instead, she may actually become the first president of the United States to be elected under the shadow of a federal indictment. It would not be a surprise to me at all if Barack Obama's last official act in office was to issue her a presidential pardon. As for the Clinton Foundation, there is ample evidence to suggest that it is nothing more than a slush fund for the Clinton's soliciting and accepting donations from foreigners in exchange for political favors. The woman is slimy as they come.


Clinton's policies are also going to be disastrous. I expect her to balloon the federal deficit even further and advance the pro-choice and pro-gay agenda at every level. If Obama merely took his foot off the brake of these social issues, Hillary Clinton is certain to step on the gas. You can also count on Hillary to make the Supreme Court a permanent left wing tyranny for the foreseeable future with her appointments. As for reining in banksters, it is hard to believe she will do anything about Wall Street corruption when those slimeballs have been paying her millions in speaking fees and campaign donations. All the things Bernie Sanders said about her corruption are true. She is bought and paid for by the fat cats on Wall Street. The one guy they don't want to see in the White House is Donald Trump.


Hillary Clinton wants your vote, but if she can't get it, she will be glad to settle for you opting to not vote or to vote for some third party candidate no one ever heard about with no chance of winning. As such, Clinton will take any vote except a vote for Donald Trump. If you vote for anyone other than Donald Trump, you are voting for Hillary Clinton. If you doubt this, imagine the smile you will put on her face when you tell her you will be voting for Gary Johnson in November.

The only reason you should vote for Hillary Clinton directly or by default is that you believe that Trump would be worse than Clinton. I don't see how any sane person could believe that Trump would be worse than that woman. Granted, Trump has made life rough for Establishment Republicans, but they deserve it. Those guys haven't cared one bit about conservatives or the working class people of this country. Those in the Establishment want Hillary, so they can continue to ignore those people. That is sad.


What will Trump do for America? Can he really make America great again? I doubt it. What I know is that he is not likely to make it worse like Hillary Clinton will do. He will most likely appoint pro-life candidates to the Supreme Court. And he will have to appoint Republicans to his cabinet and seek their advice on matters. As crazy as Trump may seem, he has enough sense to surround himself with good people and the stones to fire those who do a bad job. He is also someone willing to make compromises which means compromising with a Republican controlled Congress.

I can understand why many Republicans are not enthusiastic about Trump. You don't have to love the guy or even like him. You just have to vote for him because he is way better than the alternative. Neither Romney nor McCain were good candidates, but you have to admit that things would be a lot better in this country had they won instead of Obama.

There is one thing I can say about Donald Trump. The man loves this country. He also loves the common people while he has no love for the elites that have put this country in the toilet. People in America are tired of feeling like they are working hard so that others can reap the benefits while they are left with nothing. This love for America and for Americans is what puts Trump in the same spirit as Ronald Reagan. Reagan restored pride to this country after many years of humiliation. Perhaps Trump can do the same.

In the end, why should you vote for Donald Trump? You should vote for Trump for the same reason that I am voting for Trump. I honestly believe that the country will be better because he is in the White House. I don't know if we can call it "greatness," but it will certainly be a move back from the disaster that has been Obama. With Hillary Clinton, it will be an extension of this disastrous eight years or even worse. This may be a lukewarm endorsement, but if you wish America was great again, that is reason enough to vote for Donald Trump. He may or may not deliver, but you can say that you tried. But if you let Hillary slide in uncontested, do the rest of us a favor and don't complain about what you get. And you will get it good and hard for at least four years.
