How do we Make America Great again? We do it by first understanding our role. Electing a President is Serious Business!
Electing a President is serious business!
When Obama was running for office, I found myself cringing often, almost every time that Obama opened his mouth, he was tearing down my Country.
He continually apologized for America.
He told us and the World what he'd do if elected and how he'd go about doing it.
He told us and the World that he'd transform America and.....
Sadly.....America said "Okay" with their vote.
Obama would tear down America and the People would respond with thunderous applause.
Obama would speak of fundamental transformation and the People would loudly cheer.
Half of the time, I'd be wondering if America was hearing or understanding what it was that Obama was spouting, due to the loudness.
When I watch Donald Trump in the debates or see him in different venues, I find myself cringing again.
Not because he tears down America, he does not do that.
I know that Donald Trump is a Proud American, not a doubt in my mind!
I cringe because too many Americans are cheering so loudly for Mr. Trump that they're unable to hear his obvious lack of understanding on most subjects.
The fact that he never offers up anything substantial, creative or noteworthy is Noteworthy!
Also overlooked in all of this, drowned out by these same people, is the best man for the job.
In my opinion, that man, the best man for the job is Ted Cruz!
The man that so many have been looking for and asking for and praying for... is right there, second from the right, blue podium, red tie.
That consistently consistent man.
That man that memorized the Constitution at a young age.
That man that Professor Alan Dershowitz (yes, that Alan Dershowitz) said is "off the charts brilliant".
These People do not hear him, due to their loudness, they cannot see him through the fog that is Trump.
I've always given Obama credit, where credit was due. With the backing of a majority of Americans, he told us precisely what he wanted to do, as he set forth to do it.
Any doubts I had initially about the people not hearing what Obama was spouting, died out with him winning a second term.
I cannot give Obama all of the credit, I'd be remiss in not giving the American voter their credit due; Obama asked for their vote and it was freely given!
Now that the noise has subsided and the fog has cleared, they're yelling loudly for someone to fix this!
I'm not witnessing a lot of common sense being utilized, in this important task at hand, when the man that says:
- "I can change as President, I will change".
- "They will do what I tell them to do".
- "I mean, part of the beauty of me is that I'm rich".
- "I could shoot someone and still win".
- "I did support the Clintons and other Democrats, it was just Business".
- "Now I'm going to be so Presidential".
The man that supported the Clintons, because he was a member of their Party, for the majority of his voting life!! (how many exclamation marks are too many?)
Now he's going to change. He can change if he has to change and now... he's going to be Presidential!!! (too many huh?)
When this man, is leading in the Delegates count, this man is leading in most polls, this man is leading in social media.
IF this man wins the office of the Presidency, We the People did it. We will, once again, have to take full responsibility for our actions, we will once again be yelling for someone to fix this, because we failed to be informed to the best of our ability!
I'm tired of cringing. I'm tired of settling.
I want to be excited again about America's future.
I want to believe in the process. It is still the best process in the world and I want to respect my fellow man, but how can I, when I witness so many on the wrong path again and seemingly unwilling to look at the map first or take direction.
We have to take this seriously, this isn't television, it isn't 'The Real Whatever'..... it is Real Life!
Please, if you're undecided, find an unbiased source and do some homework on Ted Cruz.
Don't stop there, do some homework on Donald Trump.
If you jumped on the Trump bandwagon, step off, clear your head of the fog and get serious about this business of electing a President!
America may be beyond "fixing", if we aren't willing to get serious.
