So much has already been said about Donald Trump. So much has been spun, chewed and spewed out by the malignant media. The DC politicians themselves have managed to note their disdain – and it certainly wasn’t just from one side of the aisle. The presidential election of 2016 has revealed, unveiled, and exposed every dishonest repository of all that is corrupt at the highest levels of governance. America, as she was originally founded and intended to be, has been displaced and replaced by a power hierarchy which we can now name with certainty – the “UniParty” – there isn’t any other name for what happens in Washington.

Naively, we thought it was just the Obama regime and the past 8 years, (well, first it was just going to be 4 years, and then we’d fix it) but it turned into 8 yrs, and now it’s clear this has been going on for decades… the collusion between the two political parties which supposedly were supposed to be opposition parties – to balance out the excesses if one political party went too far.

Now we know that for at least 50-60 years, there was never any intent to keep a check or reign on the power of the State. The entire agenda for the politicians has been to consolidate power – 1) by removing it from the “free and independent states” and 2) getting down into the removal of individual freedom from the people. The litany of abuses is too long and not really the point of why I’m writing this today – suffice it to think about your healthcare, your children’s schooling, your ability to make a living and feed your family, etc. etc. Or, the most egregious and representative of almost everything we’re facing – the right to fly our American flag with pride and honor and love of country. Because that’s the endgame of the Left/DC politicians/globalists.

This all goes back much further than the Obama years, so we can’t blame him for everything that has happened, he was just the icing on the cake, or in our world, the match that finally lit the fire about to consume us. We’ve spent several decades being denied “free speech” – our 1st Amendment Right – under the guise of “political correctness.” We’ve spent the past 15 years being subjected to being called racists, homophobes, intolerant, ignorant, and every other epithet the Left could parlay out there with their propaganda media machine. It isn’t that the media is “in” the tank for Hillary Clinton, they are the tank/machine being used to mow down the American people. (I wonder if they realize that the mower will eventually run over them?)

Then Donald Trump came along and upset the plan, and upset their agenda. Donald Trump began speaking, and the People began listening. Then they realized – here was a voice for them. A voice that they thought had been taken away – where we were left groveling for a few crumbs from the powers that be in Washington. “Please don’t hurt me or my family, we’ll do more, we’ll give you more, just tell us and we’ll do it.”

We ran from the Lefty hate, we cowered and were afraid to speak up. I remember being hesitant to put up our McCain/Palin printed yard signs, (though McCain was no loss, but Sarah had tried to speak for the regular folks). In 2012, Romney/Ryan had us fooled for awhile, but we really thought, at the time, they would be better than Obama. I don’t believe that now, and it doesn’t matter, because the damage was already done, and if there is one thing we’ve learned since, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan weren’t going to undo any of Obama’s deeds; executive orders, funding Obamacare, funding the infanticide of babies, Common Core – the State indoctrination of our children, and the entire takeover of our lives by the Government. No, not one thing.

Yet, despite all our capitulation to the State, our hearts yearned for freedom – Vassar Bushmills would say it’s a Natural Law. The basic tenets of Judeo-Christian beliefs are about freedom, spiritually and in everyday life. Donald Trump, against all odds, against all the mud the DC politicians and globalists could manufacture and throw at him, proved that we don’t have to take what is dished out. He proved to us that we can fight back, and stop being abused slaves, serfs and indentured servants.

But more than anything, Donald Trump proved that the America as I once knew her, and the one I grew up in… he proved that it still exists, it hasn’t gone away, nor has it been destroyed. When I watch his rallies, and see the people there, in the multi-thousands, Trump has brought out the American people – all walks of life, all socio-economic tiers, ethnic/racial groups, and incredibly, especially the younger ones – huge numbers of them. People the staid, archaic, and condescending Republicans couldn’t be bothered to serve, much less brush shoulders with. The Democrats have only used the working man and woman to gain power, but not to lift them up. They too, see the Common Man as people to be controlled and ruled, only their followers were slightly more fooled. The difference was really just a matter of who would give you the shiny penny first.

Today, because of Donald Trump, I see Americans… and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to see in my lifetime. America as she really is – not hateful and falsely divided, but a nation with a good heart, strong and decent, and that is the one thing that the rot in Washington, DC cannot take away from us, We the People.

We Remember, this November.
