I must find it amusing to read the liberal argument against Trump and in response to his speech. While, yes, I am a Trump supporter I am not writing this as someone who ‘must take action to protect me candidate’. I do not think Trump needs my defending him. I am writing this because of the total lack of logic on the part of those who like to attack anything conservative. I read articles and comments such as how ‘fact checkers’ have analyzed the speech and find it wanting in reality. Funny how those same fact checking experts are blind when it comes to speeches given by Obama, Hillary (or as I like to write it: Hellary), or anyone else from the liberal left. I have read articles and remarks ranging anywhere from Trump flat out lying, anonymous ‘sources’ coming out of the wood work with accusations about Trump, to how his son ‘killed an elephant’ and did not eat it for food (which I really do not know how they would know if he did or did not have it consumed or gave it to a tribe for food) all the way to where I am expecting someone to pipe up over having seen Donald Trump buy foreign made ice cream!
Please, just for a moment, let us stop and actually use the intelligence the Good Lord gave a slow thinking crowbar. Instead of examining every letter of parsed sentence, please may we think for a moment and look at the content.

I honestly believe that people no longer really want to think. It is easier to attack rather than reason. It is more convenient to bash rather than reason. Instead of asking if there might be any merit to what was said it is easier to parse out each and every word, sentence and phrase to find fault with what was said. There are some who might say that I am too critical of people. I simple say that I am sick and tired of people trying to run this country who rather destroy and attack rather than think. If you disagree with Mr. Trump that is your Constitutional right. But, before you simply stop at attacking, actually find out where you disagree and ask yourself if you disagree because he is wrong and why he is wrong or if you disagree because he is a conservative and your problem is not with Trump but with Conservative ideas. Maybe the problem is not Mr. Trump but yourself. I am amazed as to how many liberals scream against discrimination and closed mindedness yet are the most hostile close minded people on the planet. If you attack someone not because of what they say and are screaming how they are wrong yet have never truly open mindedly examined what they say, they you are the bigot and not them. Everyone has a right to their ‘opinion’. That is what makes America free. I would just like to see the ‘experts’ who are taking a position to be honest enough to label it as ‘their opinion’ rather than ‘these are the facts’ when they have never examined the facts.
