Tis the Season....For New Beginnings and for Making America Great...Again!

Updated on December 2, 2016
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.

I wasn't looking for Trump's speech, (I didn't even know there was a 'Thank You America' tour planned, but I sure like the idea of it), just happened upon its kick-off, while scrolling through, looking for Christmas movies to watch.

The speech grabbed my attention and so I began watching, for almost an hour I watched. Although it cut into my Classic Christmas movie watching time, the speech did not disappoint, I was truly impressed.

Trump wasn't only giving thanks to the voting public, he was laying out what will be taking place in time, as Agenda Make America Great Again commences. Commencement is already underway in Indiana, the Carrier Plant will not be moving Lock, Stock and Barrel to Mexico. While many job opportunities will still be leaving for Mexico, and while one job leaving America is still too many, over one thousand people will be keeping their jobs and remain employed throughout the Holidays and beyond...here, in the good ole U.S. of A and that makes me very happy for them!

It should make all Americans happy any time positive things happen for fellow Americans in any American city or town.

Trump was relaxed, poised and on point.

Trump was Presidential!

It was refreshing, after seeing so much negativity in print and in social media, television, etc., after witnessing the foolish taking of a knee during the National Anthem or witnessing the foolish burning of the American flag.

After seeing a certain College, namely Hampshire College, remove the American flag over student's hurt feelings? Insecurities? I don't know the reasons, you'd have to ask the person(s) who is consoled and comforted by this radical undertaking. I'll never understand how solace is gained by sending The Star Spangled Banner into College Time-Out for Eternity...buried deep beneath mothballs, down in the dark and dingy confines of the basement of a Building, not just any Building...a supposed place of Higher Learning!

Refreshing!

After many years of being called names, for not being a Supporter of Barack Obama or his ultra Liberal agenda, now I am to be lumped into a basket (or was it bucket?) of deplorables, because I did not support Hillary Clinton..... for the same exact reasons!

Hers, an ultra liberal agenda right on par with he, who would have been, her predecessor.

Hillary, with the same color skin as I, so it's a little tricky to continue calling me racist. Hillary, the same gender as I, so sexist is out too...instead, I and every other citizen that wants to see America headed in the complete opposite direction of the direction we've been traveling, are called whatever name is pulled from the deplorable grab bag.

Whatever 'Tweet' or 'News' story prompts the liberal minions to Act Accordingly.

What will the word of the day be for tomorrow or what will the word of the week be next week?

What new Social Cause or Promotion or App will be developed to Protect all of the softies from big bad me, big bad Conservatives/Republicans...from big bad President-Elect Trump?

Refreshing... to see such Pride for this Country on full display during the speech, as opposed to the last several years of Obama doing what Obama does, Simply the Best ... dissing America!

Refreshing...to hear a plan to bring back manufacturing jobs to small town U.S.A. or into struggling inner cities that have been forgotten and/or left behind (except when a Democrat is running for office and desperately needs their vote)

It has taken me time to get to the point of being enthusiastic about our future.

I was initially a critic of Donald Trump, I admit it!

While enthusiastic and encouraged, I still understand that the course ahead is a tough course, there will be many barriers and hurdles to get past and we must be patient.

Greatness will not return overnight!

  • Why can't Liberal America ever admit when they are wrong about anything?
  • Why can't Liberal America ever think outside their narrow little rectangular boxes?
  • With them, it seems to be all about them, their feelings and their need for safe spaces and coddling.
  • Are they capable of putting others first...of putting America first?

Liberals, are you?

Having hope is a wonderful thing and this being the Most Wonderful time of the year....there's a lot of wonderful out there to go around.

Refreshing!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannakuh my friends and fellow Americans!

      Awww...Live and Let Live...I think live and let live might just get you thrown out of your home or thrown into jail or lead to your Rights being stripped from you. Thank God we have the U.S. Constitution and that the Founders recognized that Our Rights come from God, and need to be Protected from man, from mob rule and from Government.

      Take care Love!

      everyone is entitled to their own beliefs on whats good and bad.

      and thats where the problem comes in.

      which is why live and let live should be the motto, imo.

      not: live as i see fit or get out, get thrown in jail, or have your rights taken away.

      if such is the case, we really should have two americas, red states and blue. no federal gvt over both. i guess like pre civil war. im good with that!

      America....Good!

      Apologizing for the existence of America...Bad!

      Allowing America to work as designed...Good!

      Working toward transforming America into a carbon copy of any other average Country...Bad!

      I've heard that the flag is back where it belongs at Hampshire College.

      Too bad it's because Veterans, the Community, the Nation.... were riled up over it and not because the College President confessed to a temporary lapse in judgement, as he came back to his senses. But, it is back and that's a good thing.

      It matters! Understanding that we are a Blessed Nation matters. Children learning early on about the Miracle of America matters, so when they get to College, they do not fall victim to screwed up liberal Professors filling their minds with b.s.

      With that off my chest....agreed, we are stronger together and we do need more love and kindness.

      Cheers!

      i dont know, to be honest. and it doesnt matter. i will stop injecting. i honestly want you to enjoy this feeling you have. and i like what melania said about treating each other more kindly. though you all seem to think shes some kind of a demonic witch or something, hillary said the same thing. we need more love and kindness in this world, and we are stronger together.

      as much as you wish otherwise, we are divided states, and in my view, trump has a lot to do with that.

      but it is what it is....christmas is here: the best! i hope everyone feels the xmas cheer

      I like Obama.....voted for him...twice. I don't speak badly of him and I know he was treated poorly by many. I also think Bush & Cheney are idiots.......so I'm not at all like everyone else.....and I won't be accused of being. I've made my points clear hundreds of time. Am done explaining and defending myself. People who can't understand can go to hell.

      Where to start Love?

      When I speak of my fellow Americans, you are included (like it or not) I want your family to feel safe within our borders. I want you to have prosperous years ahead. That happens...when the government does their job...which is, keeping us all safe! That happens when the government is so busy keeping us safe by enforcing laws, securing borders, strengthening our Military that they don't have time to get in the way of the Free Market, which allows us all to do well!

      People are excited, I'm excited....because Trump understands how things, here in America, are supposed to work. How we were designed to operate!

      Give it a chance...give him a chance!

      GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

      Yes Dear 5 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      i dont worship and admire anyone...not even my husband. and you all go around hating libtards plenty. just try and support obama, see what happens to you...with hillary, it was worse.

      and i think im being more than fair. ive promised to treat dumpy as well as you all treated obummer and killary. you should expect no less. arent we equals, here?

      as much as you hate hillary, i dont hate trump. i see him for what he is: a spoiled frat boy. i just keep away from those types. and any time hes on tv, i change the channell.

      have a good 4 years...its all on you. you have the entire gvt.

      Thanks Paula for clearing up Love's identity.

      I planned to do that, but then Jackie mentioned the Transformation Prez and I went off on a tangent....lol

    • fpherj48 profile image

      Paula 5 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      Jackie......LMC is a she.. (Leslie) not a he....LOL but other than that.......I actually have some sympathy for her. She is such an incredibly fierce & loyal Hillary fan.....she nearly worships and adores her. I know she must be devastated...... Thankfully we're all free to make our choices.

      ab williams.....My stance was that, sure, it might be nice to have our 1st woman POTUS....and I never have a problem voting right or left....I vote person, not party. However, all I was 100% sure of from day one, no matter who won the Repub candidacy.......No one could have offered me millions nor held a gun to my head to make me vote for the single-most corrupt politician our country has ever had.

      THEY hate Trump and they have that option. Bless them, one and all.

      The problem with Hillary fans is that they ALSO hate anyone and everyone who didn't vote for her. I guess they have that right too.

      I hate Hillary, but I have no bad feelings for her voters. Even if she'd have won, I would not be running around slamming all the libs.......What the hell is that all about anyway?

      I guess it takes some people a while to grow up and face reality, accept their losses and take the bad with the good. Life goes on. I don't get it and I never will. To each their own. It's all a part of living in the greatest country in the world........Freedom of choice.

      Yes I'm afraid Obama remains stuck in Transformation mode, but his days are numbered and fortunately for us, there is no Apprentice waiting in the wings!

      Hallelujah!!

      lovemychris has his head in somewhere but straight. Here he is screaming at Trump, most of the time calling him and his followers racist among other things while he supports a white supremacist quite literally that has sold out America, gotten rich on terrorists countries and all the bad they stand for and would have by now if she had been elected shown these idiots just how dumb they were. Do they really think she cared any more for them than the Deplorables? Please.

      If they will only settle down and give Trump a few months they will see what love for America looks like and it is not selling 20% of our Uranium and getting millions in kickback for someone no more concerned for this country than her predecessor who is this minute trying to bring all the bad he can on us before he has to leave.

      I still do not trust he will do it peaceably. They had an evil plan for us and I do not think it has changed.

      so those of us who suppurt her are supposed to feel welcome in a gvt that calls her a crook?

      no thank you. ill stay second class while you have your greatness. not for me

      The lock her up chant is exclusively for Hillary. You have to admit, she seems to have gotten away with many things that you or I would be locked up for. So unless you are an accomplice to her crime spree...I think it's safe to say that you are not included.

      I don't want a "New" America, don't think I've heard that term before. I've certainly never used it.

      But I have said, numerous times, America is the greatest Country that God gave man!

      Unfortunately, America has been manipulated, abused and apologized for. She has been pounded at her very Foundation and just needs time to heal, so that she may shine brightly again, like the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree!

    • lovemychris profile image

      Yes Dear 5 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      just curious...when he asked, didnt we have fun fighting hillary, and the crowd starts chanting "lock her up", "lock her up", am i to assume we are included in your great new america?
