Notes from all over

by GDA


Nearly all new presidents of the United States have a "honeymoon" period when they take office. The media and the losing party give the new president time to get going. For Barack Hussein Obama, his honeymoon trip lasted eight years. According to the media, he could do no wrong. Actually he did nothing.
As for the Republicans, they crawled back into their shelters and did nothing. Because of this, we saw our health care system brutalized with Obamacare, making it nearly impossible for any American to really afford health care. The deductibles that families had to pay went from a low of a hundred bucks to a high of $10,000. Our national debt went from $8 trillion to $20 trillion as Obama saw us go farther into debt than all of our previous presidents, combined, had allowed to happen.
Then we saw Donald Trump get elected, taking 30 of the 50 states. He ignored California and New York since those welfare states were unwinnable, having gotten used to being on the government dole. Trump, not only had no honeymoon in his job, he was attacked before he even took office. This never happens, but the Democrats and Hillary Clinton just couldn't believe they had lost. They had done everything possible, including raising billions of dollars in this country and from many foreign countries, plus they stabbed Bernie Sanders in the back to ensure Hillary's candidacy. Donna Brazile, who was a high-ranking member of the Democrat National Committee, has written a "tell-all" book on the shenanigans Hillary and the party did, especially against Bernie.
In the meantime, Trump's own Republican party seemed to fight him at every move.
What has Trump done, then? Well, our economic growth has gone up faster than anything in the past 25 years. Under Obama, our growth was stagnant, but the polls said the people liked him for that. Hmmm, makes you wonder. Companies that had been sending their extra cash overseas due to our high taxes are bringing it back and investing in jobs. Companies that were going to go overseas are staying. Americans who took themselves out of the workforce due to the lack of jobs, are now going back to work and there are several million of them. The stock market is at an all-time high and continues to grow. By the way, that doesn't help just the rich people, it definitely helps your pension funds.
Overseas our country is regaining the respect it had. Trump's visit to China was a huge success and it might just be the catalyst to stop North Korea's nuclear bomb program that Bill Clinton's policies helped grow. This country seems to be at near full employment. Of course, there are some who don't like that. They liked getting government bucks to live on, having half the country pay for their not working. Santa Claus was leaving town for them and they aren't happy. Being a bum seems to be the goal for some.
Now, the so-called polls say Trump is hated, but why does he get such huge crowds no matter where he goes? The media who did such a great job with polls on predicting the last election, now says Trump should go and so do some Democrats.
Our armed forces are getting stronger every day, the number of illegals crossing our borders is down and this is without the wall.
Yes, Trump does put his foot into his mouth with his Twitter accounts. The reason he uses Twitter is to get his message and thoughts out since the media won't do it. I am not crazy about it, but I am not smart enough to tell a guy who took a million dollar loan and built it into a multi-billion dollar empire, what he should do.
The Democrats are absolutely cheering over their governor win in Virginia. Of course, Virginia's past governor gave 200,000 felons the right to vote, plus Virginia is a haven for illegal immigrants. By the way, did you know that since 2010 when Obama was in charge, the GOP has gained nine governorships, 62 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and nine new U.S. senators? The Democrats have also lost close to 1,000 state legislators in that time. The sale of guns under Obama did go up, but now it is going down.
With those facts, and they are facts, do you really believe that Trump is hated or is it the media and the left wing who hate him? Makes you think. Maybe Donna Brazile's book has some truths in it.
