Why Trump

Yamamoto-Isoroku

Since the election in November the media has been abuzz with the reports of protests, threats to members of the Electoral College, threats to disrupt the inauguration as well as the classic BLM people and Soro paycheck anarchists.  Hillary and Bill are blaming everyone but themselves for the loss.  College students are demanding more safe space because they cannot handle that Trump won.  And the basic melt down of liberal mentality continues to consume our delicate snowflakes.   All of the above are racked with the endless question of how Trump won and why did the people elect him.  It is truly amazing that these people cannot stop long enough to realize that they are the reason why Trump won and won so astoundingly.

The American people got, and still are, fed up.  We were a land of laws that tried at least to protect everyone.  We were a nation of brave men and women who faced down the Nazi and Japanese governments at the same time.  We were a nation of men who looked death in the eye at the coast of Normandy and went ahead anyhow because they knew what was needed and that lives of millions was dependent upon them risking theirs.  There was never any talk about college students needing ‘safe spaces’ because someone said something that made them so distraught that they could not function.  People who were that fragile were considered of questionable mental and emotional balance not the building blocks for a future generation.  Something like Black Lives Matter who would burn down places such as Ferguson and the extreme destruction of Baltimore were seen as simply riots by anarchists and not an expression of ‘free speech’.  People and ‘governments’ such as ISIS which would attack our citizens upon our soil was not deemed as people we needed to sympathize with or understand; they were sought out and killed.  American leaders respected other countries leaders but bowed to no one.  America welcomed people from other countries but just expected them to enter legally.  Even those who did not enter legally was still basically welcomed as long as they did not break any laws and tried to fit into the American way of life.  I personally know of one such person, who came here illegally but worked hard to become a citizen, did not break any laws, worked hard and was rewarded.  Now we have people who fly foreign flags screaming against our way of life and doing everything they can to disrupt things openly.

Why did Trump get elected?  Trump got elected not because of the Russians.  Trump got elected not because of racism.  Trump got elected not because of sexism.  Trump got elected because the American people were fed up with what we have been seeing and where America had been going.  Americas got fed up with a political system that was available to the highest bidder regardless of their desire for the future of America.  Americans got fed up with a Congress that had every other agenda except for the prosperous future of America and the keeping of the Constitution.  Americans got fed up with living in fear of some religious NutJob attacking innocent people simply because they wanted to enjoy a beer and bacon cheese burger at the beach with a bikini clad partner.  Americans got fed up and political leaders who were so afraid of offending people that they never even acknowledged the enemy.  Americans got fed up with a government that was so afraid of offending someone what in turn offended everyone who simply wanted some resemblance of normality such as men in the men’s locker room and women in the women’s.  Americans got fed up with legal double standards where there was one set of laws for the political elite and another for the rest of society.  Americans got fed up with people blocking traffic in the name of ‘social reform’ keeping good people from getting needed medical attention.  Americans got fed up with the death of common sense and common decency.  THIS IS WHY DONALD TRUMP WON THE ELECTION!

The liberal left has not figured out that if they continue their antics all they will be doing is cementing Donald Trump in the hearts and minds of the people.  If you want to undermine Trump, stop your protests, stop your road blocks, stop your blaming, stop you ‘safe spaces’ and grow up.  If you think Trump is extreme you might be right but it is also because we have gone extreme to the left in this country.  By not wanting to see or admit where our nation was headed does not make it any less real.  Our nation was in a very real place of very real threats and we were doing basically nothing to correct the matter.  It takes a very special state of denial for anyone to look at France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden and not to see the ‘refugee’ matter an extreme threat to safety.  It takes a special state of denial for a person to look at the attacks upon American citizens on American soil and to think that all we need to do is to eliminate gun ownership and it will all go away.  It takes a special state of denial to look at radical Islam and to think that it is still al religion of peace and love not posing a threat to anyone.  It takes a special state of denial to look at Black Lives Matter and their track record and to still see them as just another social cause group fighting for national good.  It takes a special state of denial for a person to look at the very fabric of America being torn at by people who have no regard for America, its laws, its history, its goals or its agenda and not have its days numbered as a free society.  It takes a special state of denial for a person to look at groups who feel it is right to remove elements of American history simply because they do not agree with it and thus are justified to override the rest of the nation.  Americans simply got fed up with living in denial.  The liberal left should take a note from history and Admiral Yamamoto  and realize that they have awoken a sleeping giant.

A racist

two-wolves

What is racism?  What is a racist?  We are being programmed that rasism is a thing that is said or done.  If a person does not do or say certain things then they are not a racist but if they do then they are racists.  Racism is not a thing.  Racism is not a word.  Racism is a state of heart.  Racism is no more a thing than generosity being when a person gives to a charity.  If a person is going to donate to a charity and makes a big production out of taking out their wallet and waving around a $10 bill before giving it is not being generous.  They are being an egotist.  A person who quietly gives 50 cents might be more generous than someone who gives $50.  But our present definition of racism is simply indicative of our society that loves to blame an object rather than the individual.  America does not have a gun problem.  America has a people problem.  As long as there are people who believe they can demand their rights and always get their way then there will always be a means by which they use to force their will upon others.

I grew up basically a Southern, (which I say proudly).  While I was born in Chicago my dad and mom were from southern Indiana.  Dad’s dad was from Kentucky.  We were raised with southern values such as your word is your contract and a gentleman treats a lady like a queen.  I remember one winter morning asking my girlfriend at the time if she would go out and start the car so it could start warming up while I finished packing.  We were visiting home during college break.  My dad told her to stop and for me to get out there and warm that car up myself and never to do that again.  I was informed that was NOT the way to treat a lady.  I remember listening to people talk.  I had an aunt who was as gentle as could ever be.  She used expressions typical of ‘southern’ jargon.  My dad used jargon typical of the south as well as of Chicago pertaining to particular races.  Neither of these people were a racist.  Dad had many ‘black’ friends whom he respected because he qualified a person’s character higher than the color of their skin.  But if we are able to place the blame of social ills upon things and words then people are able to go “scot free”.  It will only be as people begin to take internal looks and inventory that social ills will be addressed.

People do not want to look at themselves.  Too many people in our society are so narcissistic that they believe they are incapable of having any wrong attitudes.  They see themselves as perfect little shining examples of personhood who are the remaining few capable of judging others.  Now I do not know about other people but I know that I have more than enough issues going on inside myself to keep me busy correcting my own wrongs that I do not have much time left over to judge other people.  Maybe if we start looking inside ourselves we would not be so busy screaming racism at someone who has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or who likes black jelly beans over other colors.  I grew up when we did laundry we separated the whites from the colored.  It was referring to cloths, not people.  I grew up preferring chocolate milk over white.  These are preferences and not indicators of racism.

Christmas is a time of gift giving.  But just because someone gives me a gift does not mean they like me.  Just because someone compliments you does not mean they are your friend.  I learned a long time ago to beware of the person who sings your praises the quickest because they just might stab you in the back the fastest.  I went to a very conservative Christian college.  There was nothing wrong with the college but I remember listening to some of the other students condemn people who ‘went to movies’.  (Yes, there are some people who still see going to dances and movies as ‘evil’.)  I was never impressed with the attitudes of those people and their self-righteousness.  I was grateful that I grew up working in a Salvation Army rehabilitation center learning that not everything was as it seemed.  Just because someone looks like a raging drunk on the outside does not mean that there is not an extremely talented individual hiding inside.

It would be a curse upon our society if our children buy into the idea that evil is a thing and not something found in the heart of mankind.  Once they do that then it is easy to believe that as long as you do not do certain things then all is well.  Just because I may not see cancer does not mean that it is not killing me. There is an old Indian folktale of each person having two wolves hiding within and are at war with each other.  One is good while the other is evil.  The one that is fed is the one which would conquer the other. Only as we teach our children and society that it is the heart of the individual that must change and the acceptance of personal responsibility for one’s actions that there will ever be real change.
