Goodbye Gridlock - Hello Express Lane (President Trump hits D.C. running and that benefits us All)

Updated on March 20, 2017
abwilliams profile image

I took an interest in Politics at a young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.

So far, so good!

Just as many of us had hoped would happen, things are already getting done in our Nation's Capital!

We are tired of Press Conference after Press Conference, Address after Address, Headline after Headline, "we want to get things done, we plan to get things done, BUT these things take time, BUT there is a process, BUT those guys over there..."

Frankly we have had it with big BUTs

Um, moving along.

Yes these things take time, because John has to check with Joe, to see if Fred will be okay with Sue having Bob sign off!

Trump, the Outsider, does not recognize John's relationship with Joe and does not care that these old buddies, old pals go way back. These 'relationships' create gridlock and gridlock must end!

Unnecessary job creation in unnecessary departments may create multiple paychecks being paid out in D.C., but it does nothing for the Economy, outside of D.C.

With Trump signing Executive orders resurrecting the Pipelines, in what will hopefully be an expedited process, we are a step closer to Energy Independence, a large number of Steel workers and Construction workers being gainfully employed, manufacturing jobs returning and revenue creation along the pipeline routes.

You could say that with a simple stroke of his pen, ducks are put in a row and multiple birds are killed with one stone.

It's a Win-Win-Win...and since birds aren't literally killed, as is the case with Wind Turbines...let's throw in one more 'Win'!

By this point, you've probably been reminded of the former President and his pen skills. He did pick up his pen a lot and he was quite proficient with it.

Indeed!

But, there is picking up a pen in order to grow the Government and there is picking up a pen in order to grow the U.S Economy!

With each stroke of Obama's pen...

  • Government grew much larger with the creation of each New Department and with the addition of each new Job Czar.
  • Our Military experienced massive cuts. (the one area where there should have been investment)
  • Mom and Pop Businesses had to cut full-time workers to part-time, many lay-offs took place and many closed their doors permanently, due to Mandated healthcare that they just couldn't afford!

I'll not go on. No need. The American voter said no to big, bloated Government, so enough said!

This Adminstration has had a whirlwind start for sure....I'm going to support the man with a pen, whose getting things done for America!

If and when I feel he veers off course, he'll hear about it, you'll hear about it.

But, the other whirlwind taking place...the emotional whirlwind that began before Trump was even sworn in, that has taken the radicals down the rabbit hole, as witnessed this past weekend, is doing nothing positive for the Country.

Weren't the most repulsive, potty mouthed, crude women making a 'spectacle' during the events of the 'Resist Weekend', the very-same, freaking out over Trump's potty mouthed, crude behavior from his past?

Just an observation, all while trying to keep this PG.

In the meantime, more Executive orders have been signed today for the purpose of cracking down on Illegal Immigration; by Enforcing Laws which already exist, strengthening our borders with the addition of Border Agents, dealing with Sanctuary Cities, believing they're Above the Law, once and for all and of course the building of the Wall!

A few years ago, my daughter and her friend were rear ended, while stopped at a red light. A man hit them at full speed and then he fled the scene. My daughter and her friend had minor injuries, but Thank God they didn't die! The man that hit them and then fled, was caught. Caught because the car he was driving was no match for the full size Ford truck that my daughter and her friend were in. There was so much damage to his vehicle that he was picked up fairly close to the accident site.

He was here illegally, he was highly intoxicated, he had no Driver's License and no insurance.

We had one phone call from an Attorney that said they'd try to get us some money toward the truck damage. Never saw a dime. Never received any other calls, not a letter, not a note, nothing, but my daughter and her friend survived that night and that's what really mattered!

I don't know if the jerk spent that night in the hospital or in jail and I don't care. I just pray he was deported and I want the assurance that he'll never be able to find his way back.

Looks as if we'll have a nominee for the Supreme Court next week and who knows what all will get done tomorrow!

Heads are spinning in more ways than one with the current speed of things and I, for one, am buckled in and yelling, "Faster"!

      We are closing in on 100 days. Crazy! The President has been busy....now if we can just get Obamacare repealed and replaced.

      The World is well aware that Trump isn't Obama, he'll not allow red lines to be crossed.

      Best not Test!

      Trump is growing on some, grating on others and for many, the jury is still out.

      I'm still buckled in and yelling "Faster", let's get things done, but more importantly, I am praying every day for our President, for our Country and for God to be invited back into a world where wickedness thrives.

      I might add......The healthcare bill is a whole different animal.

      I completely understand why House Republicans, particularly Conservatives, had to put the brakes to this one. It was not...it is not...What was Promised!

      Obamacare was passed by Democrats! Not one Republican, put their name to it, as should have been the case!

      Why should they put their name all over it now?

      So tired of the Gridlock.... but I am also tired of always being asked to Settle for Less.

      Tired of the never-ending deal-making which takes place; just do this for me and I'll do this for you, even if it means going against your better judgement....even if it means going against your Constituents wishes!

      Always Stand on Principle!

      Anything less is too costly in the end.

      I didn't like Trump's ultimatum on this. As stated earlier, this is a whole different animal.....

      I'm thinking that Obamacare will implode, all on its own!

      Government should not be in the healthcare business(.) But, now they are, so here we are, Divided, asked to point fingers at 'someone', in addition to Obama and the Dems, not wanting to settle for less, but forcefully or subtly being asked to by far too many......because government IS now in the healthcare business.

      The Express Lane has been shut down!

      Too many human roadblocks.....desperately throwing themselves in the path of this gridlock-ending, Security-seeking President; i.e. Activist Judges, Career Politicians, Politics First and Foremost 'News Sources'......etc.

      As a result of their Actions, We the People end up with the short end of the stick!

      Obama wasn't a Tyrant so much as a Traitor to America's sovereign interests and the interests of American working class citizens.

      lovemychris you rail against Republicans, Conservatives, those who did not support the 'left... once more you miss the core of what is going on... a collection of former Republicans, Independents and Democrats that are fed up with Washington, are fed up with Congress especially, and they DEMAND change in D.C.

      They DEMAND that Obamacare is done away with, that NAFTA and its ilk is done away with, that they are paid attention to and not marginalized and most importantly that the politicians care about their jobs, rather than the corporation's profits.

      So again, I say it is all on the Republicans now... they can get the things done that they were elected to do, rid us of Obamacare, rid us of these job stealing trade agreements and start taxing the damned imports rather than the citizens of America that still have jobs... or they can face ultimately a unified mob from the far left and the far right and everyone in the middle rising up against them.

      Trump is the FU by the people to the corrupt establishment... what happens if that FU isn't heeded... if corrections aren't made and economic prosperity for the working class restored, is an eventual revolt... or marital law.  I don't see either of the latter happening, I see economic prosperity being restored, and the continual marginalization of the 'left' for the foreseeable future (8 to 12 years).

      The sore losers are in reality such a minority of "the people" and they know it. That is why Obama and Soros and the left are funding all these protests...as with everything the left does they deceitfully have to make it appear that they are not in the minority. Nothing the left promotes can ever succeed unless they can make it appear they are in the majority of people or at least not an insignificant minority which is really what they are.

      Yes so true....sore Losers are calling for chaos in the streets, sore Losers are speaking out via the biased Media, all to rile up everyone! Out of touch Hollywood is riling everyone up, every time they have their Look at us, Listen to us 'Awards Shows'!

      Americans voted in Trump, because they want to feel safe again. They want their families to be safe again!

      Everything currently taking place within this Administration, is ALL about doing exactly that; by strengthening our borders, utilizing a thorough vetting process, detaining where necessary, (note: if overseas travelers already have a green card, they will not be restricted in their travel) (note:there will be a (90) day Security Measure, so that proper vetting may take place)

      Everyone that insists on calling Trump's Actions a ban......I say, okay, hopefully these measures will work and those being Targeted...the Terrorists!!! ...Will be banned from entering the United States!

      Common Sense is hard at work and that's what is required at this time.

      Get over it Sore Losers and use your noggins!

      Sanx, "What facts do you need taze."

      The facts to support your vapid statements, facts that don't exist. Nice try at feigning ignorance.

      Facts concerning your vapid statements I referred to:

      "The government has not grown one iota in the last 8 years." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.

      "Trump has done nothing that he can sustain." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.

      "At some point the rest of the Government will be telling him you need our approval and half of it will end up in court and will be found it will not pass with his authority." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.

      "He has mostly been busy angering people and a lot of Politicians." A LIE BECAUSE THOSE POLITICIANS, THE LEFT OR THE ESTABLISHMENT TYPES, FEIGN ANGER AT EVERY THING HE SAYS and THAT'S NOT A LIE BUT THE TRUTH AND HONESTLY WHO CARES, THEY ARE JUST SORE LOSERS WITHOUT THE POWER THEY SOUGHT.

      What facts do you need taze. He sighned a buntch of executive orders. I approve of the border fence but making Mexico pay for it, Really? Maybe Isreal should make the Palestinians pay for all the walls they had. Maybe we should compensate Russia for the wall they built. Sanxuary cities is probably one of the most falsely reported stories. The 14th amendment of the constitution states that only the federal government has the powers to enforce immigration laws. A sactuary city simply states that the law in that jurisdiction will not enforce the imigration status of its people. It does however have the power to refer anyone who breaks the law to immigration officials. its been blown out of proportion by those on both sides. I would love to see Trump pull all Federal funding from all these places in violation of the constitution. Thats the problem with all his plans. They are endless days in court coming soon and some how skipped all the other branches of government. When every state has been challenged by what they find to be unconstitutional its going to get real nasty, real quick. Where is Trump getting all this money from were 20 Trillion in debt. Thats right he is going to drastically cut taxes. Maybe Mexico will pay for it.

      Thank God for Catholic Charities and Shelters and Food Banks and Food Pantries and Christian Centers.....there is so much help for people that need it! My Church and every Church that I know of, does so much for the Community!

      Sometimes Government assistance is required, but it is not there to sustain for a lifetime, those that are perfectly capable of helping themselves.

      Love, there is a large group of Americans that believe the Government owes them, if you don't, then I'm not talking to you.

      As far as someone taking care of someone else (a full-time job) or the retired or the infirmed, our Veterans... that's completely different!

      I should not be surprised that you would go there...in an effort to make me feel bad or look bad, you insulted those working hard to take care of loved ones, that cannot take care of themselves.....I really do try to be patient with you!

      Split in the ranks? You are so out of touch if after all that has transpired, Trump winning the election and he and Pence delivering on their campaign promises already, which is what got them elected by the way, you think there is any possibility of dissension in the ranks because of a tweet months ago taken out of context .

      When you snowflakes are done grabbing at straws because there are no more straws to grab you make straws up...

      The only people he is "angering" is the liberal left (those that want something for nothing) and greedy career politicians (those that have lost their way and have put themselves before their constituents, before their Country)

      Two groups that do nothing positive for America.

      Money has to be spent, where it counts!

      Money has to be spent where it benefits!

      The U.S. Government doesn't exist to bear the weight of half the Nation or to keep Politicians employed for a Lifetime.

      Half the Nation, that believes it does, is part of the problem ( the problem that you think doesn't exist!)

      The other half is out here working hard to make a living for our families, running small businesses, hoping to keep people Employed, all while we are bogged down with unnecessary Government regulation, (regulation which has gone from practical to 'Gone Wild') (due to bloated Departments that we do not need!) all while WE are asked to pay more and more.

      Businesses, especially Small Businesses, need an Ally in the White House and I think we have one!

      This is turning into another Article, I've gone too long.

      Suffice it to say... . Keep it up President Trump!

      More untruths, the government has not grown one iota in the last 8 years. Trump has done nothing that he can sustain. At some point the rest of the Government will be telling him you need our approval and half of it will end up in court and will be found it will not pass with his authority.

      I'm so glad Love. No, no Tea hat for me. Maybe I'll share pics from my Tea Party days, one of these days. One of my shirts reads, 'Home of the Free because of the Brave', one has an American flag on it with the words, 9/12 Project. Those words because the day after the horrific attacks of 9/11, we ALL came together and it was a beautiful thing.

      I carried a small American flag and a small Gadsden flag.

      Thanks Taze for being so detailed. Appreciated!

      Leslie, There you go twisting things again. Can't you get anything right? Obama used his power unconstitutionally - that is what made him tyrannical. There are legitimate executive orders and there are illegal actions which violate the Constitution.

      In the spring of 2012, President Obama issued an aggressive string of executive orders to combat what he viewed as hopelessly-deadlocked Congress. Some of his more controversial, and arguably unconstitutional executive orders are as follows:

      1. Directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act;

      2. Gave states waivers from federal mandates if they agreed to education overhauls;

      3. Changed significant provisions of and the timing of Obamacare;

      4. Declared an anti-gay-rights law unconstitutional;

      5. Reshaped immigration policy by ordering the federal government to halt deportation of certain illegal immigrants.

      President Obama’s five executive orders above are clearly unconstitutional under the guidelines set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court because the five executive orders are not only merely “incompatible” with the expressed or implied will of Congress, they directly contravene, change, or alter acts of Congress in violation of the separation of powers and the U.S. Constitution. Congress set forth specific deadlines and enforcement laws with regard to the implementation of Obamacare and the president has changed them on his own authority because it was politically advantageous to do so.

      http://www.truthandaction.org/krauthammer-obama-br...

      So once again, for the umteenth time, all you have Leslie is lefty talking points (lies) to offer with absolutely nothing to back them up.

      Key words used in discussing the Pipelines "hopefully be expedited". Pipe isn't being laid yet, it has to be formed first! YAY for Jobs!

      Trump isn't out laying stone and mortar for the Wall, a payment plan is being hashed out as I type.

      When faced with gridlock on the Interstate, are you one that seeks the fast, unencumbered lane or are you content in the far right lane, moving along at a snail's pace?
