TRUMP WIN, NOW WHAT?

“The Fox News Decision Desk has called Pennsylvania for Donald Trump. This means that Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth President of the United States.”

Those were the words of Fox News Anchor, Bret Baier, in the wee hours of the morning on November 9, 2016 telling Fox News viewers of the Trump win.

As a reserved person, I didn’t jump up and down, I didn’t scream. Instead, I smiled and prayed a short prayer to God, thanking him for putting Donald Trump as the next leader of our country. God is in control and he puts kings in power and he strips kings of power. Those are the words that were used in Biblical times, but of course today, the leaders of the many countries on the planet have different names for their leaders. Here in the United States, we call our leader, President.

I continued to listen to the commentary and flipped to different channels, laughing to myself at the commentators of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and CBS. They were all so solemn, wondering how a Trump win could possibly have taken place.

In my mind, I was thinking about all the things that worried me when Obama and the Democrats had hold of this nation. I worried about being able to own firearms, I worried about how the Obama administration had treated Israel, I worried about the Iran nuclear deal, and how the Iranians were violating the stipulations and pursuing nuclear weapons. I also worried what a continuation of the Obama administration would have on businesses, our job creators. In the liberal quest to inflict pain upon those who sign our paychecks, would more people lose their jobs and would the prices of their goods and services increase. The Middle East is in ruins and ISIS has vowed to destroy the United States of America with Obama and the Democrats not seeming to care. During the eight years of Obama, I worried about my own personal situation. My health insurance premiums had sky-rocketed to the point that they were within a few dollars of my house payment. If we were to go to a single-payer healthcare system where the government had total control over our bodies, would I be able to get the health care I needed or would they give me pills and let me die. Maybe that wouldn’t be so bad. If a continuation of the Obama administration implemented major distribution of wealth programs, would I even had money to live? As a small business owner who is trying to “make it,” would I also be subjected to the many punishments a Hillary Clinton administration would certainly inflict on private businesses. As a result of not having to worry about the items I mentioned above, a burden was lifted off of me.

As I continued watching the election results, I remembered something Rush Limbaugh said a long time ago. Rush said that liberals are at their craziest when they are out of power. And as of the election results, they are certainly out of power.

Liberals/Democrats/progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves, accuse conservatives of being haters, racists, misogynists, xenophobes, homophobes, etc. If you disagreed with Obama’s policies, you were a hater, a racist, and many other things. If you were against illegal immigration, you were a xenophobe and a racist, if you believed that marriage should be between one man and one woman, you were a homophobe.

I’ve expressed in writing many times that it’s the liberals/Democrats/progressives who are the real haters, the real racists, the real bigots, etc. And if you ever want to enrage a liberal, just turn it around on them. They can’t take it.

We all know about the riots, the whining, the threats, etc. made by liberals after the Trump win. We’ve experienced nothing but hatred from the “tolerant” left. I’ve been on many liberal threads and I can tell you that these people are crazy, they’re delusional, and they’re demented. Some of the posts I’ve read are scary beyond the pale.

Yes, there was expressions of concern and maybe even some comments and statements that weren’t in the best of taste when Obama was elected in 2008 and then re-elected in 2012. But nothing any conservatives could say during the Obama years can compare with the vitriolic hate that the left has expressed, not only for Donald Trump, but for conservatives, white people, straight people, and Christians. Even white liberals are going after their white conservative counterparts. There was not one liberal friend or acquaintance of mine who would denounce the “Rape Melania” sign that was displayed by protestors outside of Trump Tower in New York after I denounced an improper comment that was made by a conservative.

Monday and Tuesday of this week, I spend several hours monitoring some liberal threads. In one, I chose to comment. Because of that comment, I was called the usual and was attacked because of my skin color (my skin color is white and so was the person who attacked me because of it), my sexual orientation, my religious beliefs, my views on the issues, and of all things, where I live and have lived all my life. Talk about tolerance!

On another thread, President Elect Trump was called unspeakable names and what was said about God took my breath away. It was horrible.

Folks, we’re going to have to get used to this. We’re going to have to brush it off and continue to push policies that will make America great again. Because I am a political writer, I have to explore these areas and I have to see this stuff, even though at times, it does upset me. Disagreements on the issues are expected and welcomed by most of us. Yes, let’s have a discussion on Obamacare. Let’s discuss the fine points of the Iran nuclear agreement. Let’s have a discussion on the pros and cons of gun control and our foreign policy. This is what we Americans are all about, This is what made this country great.

What we have become, though, is not good. The left refuses to discuss pertinent issues while focusing on how horrible America and conservatives are. All they want to talk about is racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, bigotry, etc. Maybe if we were able to discuss the issues I cited in the previous paragraph on an adult level, racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, and bigotry would greatly diminish. But as long as we have the left doing little else but hurling those accusations at anyone who dares not tow their line, we’re facing an uphill battle in making this country great again. Uphill battle or not, I believe that we can do it.

Liberals are doing everything they can to disrupt what has always been a peaceful transition of power after presidential elections. They’re currently in the process of recounting votes in certain states where they were certain Hillary Clinton would take. They’ve also promised to protest at Trump’s inauguration. They’re going to make life in American as miserable as possible for every man, woman, and child in this country. White folks will be vehemently attacked, conservatives will be vehemently attacked, heterosexuals will be vehemently attacked, Christians will be vehemently attacked, gun owners will be attacked. If you’re a white deplorable uneducated redneck, you’re going to be attacked. It’s going to be a rough ride.

FREEDOMS LOST

GrowingUpFree

A week or so ago, I shared the above meme on my personal FB page, and had a couple of folks to take issue with it.

As you can see, it is a picture of an elderly couple who is supporting Donald Trump because they grew up in a free America and want the same for their grand kids. Issue was taken because it was felt that while America was a free country that freedom wasn’t granted to everyone, particularly people of color, women, homosexuals, immigrants, etc. And those groups are still fighting for equality and justice.

The couple in this meme look to be in their mid-seventies to early eighties, making them born somewhere around 1940. I’m well aware that women weren’t give the right to vote until 1920, that civil rights legislation was not passed until 1964, and the majority of women held the traditional women’s occupations of nurse, school teacher, secretary, housewife, etc. until things began expanding for women in the early seventies.

Whenever someone, especially someone white, expresses a desire to turn back the hands of time, liberals and those who lean left consider that person a racist, sexist, homophobic because they long for a time when certain groups didn’t have the rights and privileges they have today. That is most likely not the case and to assume so is stereotyping.

Over my lifetime, we, as Americans, have lost freedoms. Because these freedoms have been lost over time, most people don’t notice. Furthermore, when we’re asked to give up a freedom, we are told that it’s no big deal, just give us this one little tiny thing and we won’t ask for anything else.

A major freedom that Americans have lost is the right to live without health insurance. With the advent of Obamacare, individuals are now required to purchase health insurance or pay a fine. Never before had the federal government required its citizens to purchase something. Because so many Americans cannot afford the sky-rocketing health insurance premiums, they’ve lost the freedom to seek medical attention should they get sick. While it certainly isn’t wise to go without health insurance, even for a minute, we no longer have that freedom. In addition to the above, many of us who are paying exorbitant healthcare premiums, no longer have the freedom to spend a substantial amount our money as we wish. There are some things that I need and some things that I want. But because of Obamacare, I’m having to pay so much for health insurance and healthcare, that I’m not able to purchase some of these things.

Those who settled in America, coming from Europe, sought freedom from religious persecution. Up until recently, we did have freedom to practice our religion or to not practice a religion, even though this country was founded on Judeo Christian principles. We’re currently witnessing people being forced to choose between their jobs and their faith. That’s an abomination. And Hillary Clinton has opined that the American people are going to have to alter their beliefs to fit within the laws this government has passed and plans to pass.

While the first amendment is still in force, freedom of speech and expression have been expotentially diminished, particularly over the last 7-1/2 years. This past Saturday afternoon, a star running back on my football team took the ball and scampered a substantial distance to a touchdown in a hostile stadium. After scoring the touchdown, the young man, displayed the palm of his gloved hand, containing an ‘A’ for Alabama, to a Tennessee fan sitting on the front row of the end zone. The announcers questioned whether that was over-doing it, and there have been many threads on social media and other forums discussing this. Some people were indicating that as long as the player didn’t touch the fan, it was okay, but still showed lack of class. Chances are, when you are in an event arena containing over 100,000 humans and one mangy blue tic hound, you’re going to get touched. Twenty-five years ago, this would not have been an issue.

Today, you can’t have an opinion differing from that of the “tolerant” left without being harassed and called names.

The Obama administration has also been hinting that some sort of government controlled truth squad should be established to filter the news that’s transmitted to the public. When I started this blog 2-1/2 years ago, I knew that I would be denigrated by the left for my views because it was happening to all conservatives, with some on the left calling for an end to the broadcasts of such folks as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Some time ago, a friend said to me, “Nancy, you say you don’t let what people say to you and write about you, bother you; but I think it bothers you more than you’re willing to admit.” Shouldn’t I have the right to express my opinion without harassment and fear?

I could write a book on lost freedoms, those the elderly couple in the meme probably had in mind. However, the theme of the person who took issue with this meme seemed to want to stress the point that America was a bad country and had been taught that in school, and somehow this meme was racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and misogynistic. Have I left something out?

This country was founded less than 250 years ago by people seeking a better life than they had under European rule. The visions our founding fathers had for this country had never been tried before. When the United States of America was established, there was no other country on earth like it. While I certainly believe the creators of this nation were aided by God, they were also mere mortals. Being an experiment like no other, it’s absolutely unreasonable to think that as this nation grew, mistakes weren’t going to be made, that some old world tendencies and practices wouldn’t be ported over to the new world. America was not the first country or culture to practice slavery. America was also not the first country to round people up, drive them from their homes, and place them on reservations or in internment camps. If you think that women had the right to vote in the old world, I got some swamp land in Louisiana in which you might be interested.

Because the United States of America was established as a free nation, we had put in a mechanism whereby our wrongs could be righted. Through the power of the first amendment, people were allowed to speak their mind, protest, and use the press to bring about change, and that’s just what happened.

If you look at how old civilization is, from a Biblical standpoint, this world is over 6,000 years old. This nation was only created about 240 years ago. In that short period of time, the USA has become the greatest nation on earth. Sure there are other free countries out there, but they copied us.

Slavery was eliminated in 1865, women were given the right to vote in 1920, plus civil rights legislation was passed in 1964. Forty-four years or one generation after the Civil Rights bill was passed, America elected its first black president. Even though I don’t agree with him on one thing and don’t care for him, he was elected by a majority of the American people, and just a mere 44 years after the barriers were lifted.

The older couple in the meme feels that if Hillary Clinton is elected president more of our freedoms will be lost. I agree with them. Freedom of speech and freedom to bear arms are being attacked, along with religious freedom. I agree with the message that is being conveyed by the meme.

INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGED LIBERALS

I don’t like to call people stupid. It doesn’t show class, and as the old adage goes, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Does calling folks intellectually challenged invoke more class? Not really, but I’m going to use the term for the sake of political correctness, even though I strive on a daily basis not to be politically correct.

Years ago, I was having a conversation with a few friends, one was a liberal, about politics. When I said to the group that I felt the best way to govern ourselves was the Republican philosophy that stuff, items, issues, should be handled in the private sector or the lowest level of government possible. The liberal, an academician, indicated that most higher ups in the academic sector, instead, believed that a strong centralized government with tighter control and more regulations was the best way to govern. Of course, I knew that. The liberal was attempting to illustrate that individuals with advanced degrees who teach in our institutions of higher learning, and are much smarter than someone like me who only has a bachelor’s degree, know what’s best for all of us because they are so smart.

While I certainly don’t think those higher up academics know what’s best for me, and definitely don’t agree with them on how the United States of America should be governed, I’ve never doubted their smarts or their intellectually ability.

I was willing to acknowledge that the Democrats, liberals, progressives, whatever, probably had higher grade point averages that us conservatives. I was also willing to acknowledge that maybe their level of education is higher than that of conservatives. In other words, I never thought of liberals being stupid…oops, intellectually challenged, until I started this website and began having interactions with liberals on social media and other political websites.

Instead of making reasonable arguments on behalf of their side, I was and still am called every bad name under the sun…moron, idiot, nutcase, racist, homophobe, and disgrace to my gender, just to name a few.  I am also called a Fox News watcher and a Rush Limbaugh listener, even though I don’t consider these terms bad, liberals spit them out with venomous hate. Very few liberals with whom I have “back and forths,” are able to cite facts or statistics to back up their views. Liberals just don’t care about facts. I said that first and now Bill O’Reilly says the same.

Liberals also can’t seem to read something and comprehend what they’ve read. Countless times, I’ve had to ask liberals to re-read what I’ve written and explain. This also goes hand in hand with their inclination to constantly change the subject of a post, a meme, and even an entire article. They can’t seem to stay on point and I’m constantly having to remind them of this.

From yesterday, I can cite two examples from Facebook where I can’t describe the liberals involved except to say that both are intellectually challenged.

Earlier, I interjected myself into a liberal FB friend’s post and replies. The post was Senator Elizabeth Warren’s aka Fauxkahontas, response to Speaker Paul Ryan’s “poverty agenda.” The speaker’s solution included cutting taxes and lifting onerous regulations on businesses in order to create jobs and grow the economy thereby giving more folks a chance to be prosperous. The senator’s way of diminishing poverty is, of course, to further tax the rich, including businesses that actually create jobs and grow the economy plus place more punishing regulations on businesses. In other words, just confiscate wealth someone else created and give it to those in need, thereby creating more dependence on government, and giving government more control over the people.

I made my feelings known and much to my surprise, I wasn’t called unflattering things. However, one of the liberals posting on the thread visited my personal FB page and posted the following: “CE0/CFO/CTO, now I understand why you are so defensive.” On my personal FB page, I have as my occupation, CE0/CFO/CTO/Adm Asst/Janitor of NMG Enterprises. This should be obvious to anyone operating with at least two brain cells that I’m a one person business. Yet this chick copied the CEO/CFO/CTO from my page and tries to paint me as some wealthy business tycoon while leaving off “Admn Asst/Janitor.” Even if I had just listed the big three and nothing else, anyone, again operating with at least two brain cells, should pick up that it’s a very small business. No one can possibly handle those three positions for a large business, a medium sized business or even for a semi-small business. Also, could this person actually think that she could get by with what she posted? Did she think that I was too stupid to pick up on it? I will say this for her, though. When I called her out and told her that I was a one person LLC who works twelve hours a day trying to get rich instead of knocking the rich, she replied, “Good for you! Keep at it girl!”

I mentioned above that liberals also have difficulty staying on point. They love to change the subject, especially when they can’t win on the subject being discussed. I have reason to believe that many Democrats, especially those who belong grass roots’ organizations, are taught, at leadership and other conferences, to do this when discussing issues. I also believe they are taught to direct unsubstantiated accusations at their sparring opponents, in hopes of throwing their opponents off course. One of the first online arguments that I had was with a local prominent Democrat who used the above tactics. It was almost as if she went into a trance.

From yesterday, I also had an experience that left me shaking my head at how intellectually challenged liberals can be. I shared a meme that is making the rounds on FB. The top picture is one of smiling Tea Party members waving American flags and holding up signs stating their position on certain issues. The Tea Party members are mostly well-dressed seniors. The bottom picture depicts a riot where property is being destroyed or damaged. The wording was directed at the media pointing out the difference between a protest and a riot. After writing a sarcastic reply, I shared it with friends.

The mainstream media should learn the difference between a protest and a riot.

Immediately after posting, I received a reply by a liberal FB friend who I suspect stalks or trolls me that was totally off the subject of the meme. I pointed that out to him and went further by responding to the off-subject post. I thought I would have received a response by now, but no. I’m sure it will come sooner or later.

Liberals are intellectually challenged, liberals are dumb. Maybe these aren’t nice things to say or put in print. But with the above two examples happening in one day and all the other things that liberals do, I’m sadly coming to that conclusion even though they often boast about having the academicians in their corner.
