As I've mentioned oncet or twicet, to me, politics isn't a game. There are good and bad things that can happen, depending on the outcome, whether it be governorships, the presidency, the House, Senate, and more. REAL people are affected, and sometimes it can be life and death. So I'm not satisfied with Trump winning, although it's a great start. I know he'll do better than Obama, but that's not, in itself, saying a lot. There's not a limbo guy in the world that can slide under the low bar that Barack Obama has set. I'm looking for a higher bar to be raised, and I'm confident Trump can do it. Anyyyywayyyy, here are some things I'm REALLY looking forward to in a Trump administration (in no particular order).
Deregulation. Obama's desire to control everything has business owners, large and small, going nuts. Whatever happened to the free market? No one knows more than Trump how stupid regulations can up the costs, and delay development. I'm tired of bureaucrats telling others what to do. Either PASS A LAW, or get out of the way.
Confronting the media. This, as some know, is a pet thing of mine. For YEARS Republican "strategists" have been whining Oooooh, the media is biased, and we're just gonna have to live with it. Not Trump. He fights back, and the media babies cry, whine, and kick their feet. GOOD! When the Trump supporters confronted CNN at some of the rallies, the Clinton New Network acted like they've been physically assaulted. You see, the deal is (according to them), is that they can say whatever they want and no one is to complain. You, see, they are JOURNALISTS -- television journalists at that -- and quite above everyone, thank you very much. I mean, many go on camera with makeup, and how impressive is THAT? They can all kiss my backside. Trump took on these preening a-holes, and WON! About time someone listened to me! If a moron is trying to stick it to you, you retaliate. Right now, the media is having a fit, and I LOVE it!
Lower taxes. This isn't brain surgery, rocket science, or whatever other tough thing there is out there that my aging brain can't come up with. Liberals don't understand the difference between tax rates, and tax revenues. Cut taxes, and you put more money in the pockets of people and especially business people. The money is either put in the bank, spent, or invested. The economy improves. More jobs. More taxpayers. More money in the government coffers for libs to spend, if they can glom their collective hand(s) on it. It may sound counterintuitive, but that's life. Things are not always as they seem, as the expression goes. For example, once companies have much lower tax rates, they'll be more likely to stay, hire more workers, and give better gifts at Christmas parties. This is just a fact. Our economy has been going virtually nowhere for eight years. By this time next year, there should be REAL growth, and the left will claim that Trump was the beneficiary of the Obama recovery. Idiots!
Help for vets, and a beefed up military. When the VA scandal happened, the administration promised it would do something about it. Nothing has happened. Are you shocked they did nothing? I bet not. Obama has ALWAYS hated the military, so it's no surprise that he has systematically decimated it. Trump will help our vets, and rebuild our military machine.
Ending Obamacare. Our president promised to reduce cost, remember? Even HE knew it wouldn't happen. Government has never reduce the cost of anything. Ever. Get rid of this monstrosity. If this hurts the Obama "legacy", well, that's just a major BONUS!
Having a worker in the White House. This is in Trump's DNA. Being born into a certain degree of wealth does not mean you're going to be a workaholic. Quite the opposite. There's an incentive to loaf. Trump never has. He has worked tirelessly on his projects. You could see this in his campaign, where he would visit two, three, or towards the end, FOUR cities, get a few hours of sleep, and start all over. He might play an occasional round of golf, but even those will probably involve deal-making. I love the idea of a president taking his job seriously, and really giving it his/her best. During the campaign, Hillary would do one event a day, talk for twenty minutes, and go home. I think she felt she was "entitled" to the office. Think again, Hillster.
Special interests can take a hike. 'nuff said.
Pushing vouchers and charter schools. Very popular in the black community, Trump will ignore the unions, and so-called black "leaders" and push for choice. Liberals have no problem with allowing women to have the choice to kill their unborn babies, but let some poor black family try to get their kids into a better school, and that choice is spat on. Trump will do what he can, to make some serious educational reform. Bet on it.
Protecting the Second Amendment. Gun owners were all going "Phew" when Hillary fell off her broom on November 8. Trump understands that we don't have a "gun problem" in America. We have a criminal problem. Obama either didn't understand this, or chose to ignore it. Whatever. Liberals have always been soft on crime. Trump won't be.
Immigration, here and abroad. Somehow it is "racist" to enforce the laws of America. What am I missing? You don't come here, illegally. I don't care about your color, religion, or anything else. You don't break the laws of the United States of America, and not expect consequences. These illegal idiots who say Ohhhhh, we pay taxes, and we're contributing to society. BS! To give an extreme example, serial killer Ted Bundy paid taxes, too, but that didn't give him a pass. But Vegas, you're comparing illegals to serial killers. You bet I am. I'm not saying their crimes are comparable -- of course not! -- but I am saying that paying taxes doesn't give anyone immunity to prosecution or other penalties. Get off your high horses, illegals, you might get nosebleed. As far as allowing Muslims into the country, Trump understands that this is a pool, so to speak, of people who have a much larger percentage of individuals who want to harm us. Even one percent is extremely dangerous. Also, this group is from a culture, or cultures, that is not a fan of America. When I read of Muslim Americans who "demand" Sharia law, and have sympathies for Isis, or "understand" why radical Muslims murdered those poor French people for publishing drawings of Muhammad, I get worried. We are talking about an entirely different culture. There's nothing "racist" about being cautious. Besides, Trump's immigration policy is not racist. Racist? It's not racist. If these leftist a-holes want to complain, call The Donald a Xenophobe. He's not, but at least it fits SOME sort of narrative.
The Supreme Court. Again, this list isn't in any particular order. If it were, it would be higher up. In any case, the future of the country rested on who gets to make this appointment. I'm tired of laws passed by states, or the duly elected members of Congress, being struck down by justices of various courts. Besides the SC, there are many other court appointments to be made. Go for it, Donald!
And I be done.
