Trump is Pres- Now what
Trump is the USA President, like it or not. Now what?
Change some good some not so good, and the unknown. Many celebrate while others spend sleepless nights in fear, and anxiety.Social Media often has times making things bigger than they are.We know the media has in cycles seemed to favor one party over the other. What is truth, what is not? So many jump to conclusions, panic before even hearing, listening to the other side.
This election in one way or another will effect us all. We can allow it to divide us, or unite us. This election has many lessons, but has also shed light on issues that have been in the shadows to long, You cannot change something if you never see need for change. If we do not like the results, then it is time to do things different. For some who never voted, yet do not like the result's and are protesting, why? You did not vote. If you will not vote then you should not protest. We complain about gov then complain when they don't or do? Yet we do not, or are to lazy to get ourselves involved in the processes.
A Non politician as President......
This is new.Why not give him a chance the first 2 years. Why not listen to why he is doing what he is. Let him speak. The immigration issue is one that must be addressed.He has key words temporarily banned 7 countries well known for terrorism etc till we can vest people more accurately and better. Sometimes adding more people too the boat without fixing the hole, will result in all going down. It is not a personal attack on Muslim or the religious Trump has issue with the extremists.
Do I agree with how he did this ban, um not really as I am not sure if they are not legal or constitutional issues here. The hold up with those with Green cards I think was a mistake not foreseen or thought of. My opinion.
We do not want this..... who is the we?
Well, what now?
Personal responsibility a phrase many do not like to hear. What now is that you, and I have a responsibility according to our faith, beliefs, values to act. Get legally involved.
Keys in getting involved
- Vote, or register so you can, and vote for what, and who you want.
- Get to know the issues, both sides.
- Write and get to know your congressmen, and women, Keep on after them if need to.
- Develop a group of like minded, there is power in groups. More voices.
- When need legally, and peacefully protest.
- Do not attack the persons, but attack the issues.
- Develop plans, persist.
- Run for office if you can.
- Research ways you can make a difference.
- Make a difference by doing, not just complaining.
What are you doing to make a difference?
The President is not a dictator
Again no matter how you feel on Trump, the Presidency of the USA, is not a position of dictatorship. He cannot do just anything and everything he wants.The president's power is expressed in executing rules, regulations, and instructions also known as executive orders,. They are sealed, and enforced by the power of law on federal agencies however; they have no need to wait the approval of the United States Congress. Executive orders are however; very much subjected to judicial overview. The latest is seen in the Travel Ban.. For now the Travel Ban has been blocked. He also has a congress which keeps in check the office of Presidency, so that no one person may go runamuck . The Government is still by the People. The question is are you one of the People who gets involved or just sits on side line complaining
A quote from Wikipedia
".The Constitution explicitly assigns to the president the power to sign or veto legislation, command the armed forces, ask for the written opinion of his or her Cabinet, convene or adjourn Congress, grant reprieves and pardons, and receive ambassadors."
