It is not the Covid-19 virus that is killing the American Dream it is the complacency of it citizens to stand up and stop this takeover of our country. The fate of America has always been in the hands of its citizens, that is how our forefathers put it together in our constitution and bill of rights. Remember the infamous words of Ben Franklin speaking to a crowd waiting to hear about the new constitution; he was asked by someone in the crowd, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
We are now being tested to see if we the people of this United States are going to fight to keep this constitution which has served us so well for 244 years.
My personal fear is that too many of us have become soft and oblivious to what has been going on in our government for the past few decades so much so that we have ignored the fact that government has intruded into almost every corner of our lives. We have allowed the bureaucrats to take over our states and country without questioning why they are making all these new rules and regulations. It was not until Donald Trump—the Washington outsider and successful businessman—was elected President in 2016 that we began to open our eyes to the truth about the “Swamp” in Washington D.C. and how badly they were managing our government.
We had just come off 8 years of the highly repressive government of Barack Obama’s administration that pretended to try and dig our country out of one of the worst recessions in U.S. History, but squandered most of the money allocated by Congress to fix it. Obama tried to convince us that we would never get back to 3% GDP; it was a thing of the past and that we would have to learn to live with less. He issued numerous executive orders with onerous new rules and regulations restricting oil production and killing our coal industry with new EPA regulations. He opened our borders and permitted millions of immigrants to enter the U.S. illegally and issued an executive order (DOCA) allowing those born here by illegals to remain in the U.S. He bowed to every Despot he could find on his round the world apology tour for America. This was a man who campaigned on Hope and Change. His hope was to change America into a socialist society controlled by an elite group of liberals.
No one expected Donald Trump to win the primary with so many contenders, but then again, no one ever expected him to ruin in the first place. Washington was shocked when he won the presidency and was totally shattered when he beat Hillary in the election. Americans didn’t know how fortunate they were and most continued to be critics of Trump even into his second year as president even as our country’s economy began to slowly turn around after 8 years of abysmal economic conditions.
We finally had a president not a bureaucrat running things and boy did he know how to cut red tape and get America back on track. The oil began to flow with new exploration and fracking while the coal industry actually made a recovery after being on life support for the past 8 years. America was no longer dependent on foreign oil and did not have to bow to anyone in the Middle East or submit to unrealistic terms of foreign governments. With Trump at the helm, there was no more hoping for change; it was happening right before our eyes as his economic policies began to work.
Trump began to purge the swamp dwellers one by one while he rewrote unfair trade agreements that favored greedy corporations seeking lower wages and brought manufacturing jobs back to America. He stemmed the tide of illegal immigrants who sucked on our welfare rolls and worked for lower wages. To be sure none of the elite in Washington or the corporate world liked what was happening. The only ones who were pleased with his business-like performance were the hard-working Americans known as the “deplorable” by Hillary. People were becoming prosperous and finally able to bring home a salary that would support their families.
This man was bringing the “American Dream” back while lessening everyone’s dependence on government social programs. Fewer people were on food stamps, more minorities had found jobs than ever in our history, and the economy was humming like a finely tuned engine. This is what happens when you get rid of government restraints that had been placed on America’s prosperity by the Swamp Dwellers of our capital. Keep in mind he did this while under constant siege by the media, RINO republicans, and the liberal left. They beat on him like a drummer in a heavy metal band for 4 long years while he moved the country forward economically and politically. The world saw America come back and many feared President Trump because of his success, especially our enemies.
This President brought us the best economy we had seen in decades in a matter of four years all while defending himself from every elitist bureaucrat in Washington, every money-hungry corporation, and every liberal media group crucifying him with lies and innuendo 24/7. From Russia Gate to his phony impeachment in the house, this president never wavered for a second, fighting back with everything he had. Trump knew what the deep state was capable of, but he was not able to get rid of enough of them and eventually was undermined by people he thought he could trust. What he didn’t realize is how deeply entrenched the deep state was and how many out and out crooks there were in our government. For every one of the bad guys he got rid of, two more showed up like cockroaches to beat the anti-Trump drum behind the scenes. This president was one of the few in history who is totally for the people and against the crooked bureaucrats who had been robbing us blind.
So why is it that this man who rescued us from the grasp of Crooked Hillary and Obama is so hated and despised by half of the American people? It’s simple, he actually wanted to take the power away from the Washington bureaucrats and give it back to the people. You see, the less we have to depend on our government to take care of us, the less government we actually need; and that is not good for those who have been on the dole from the taxpayers for too many years. Trump threatened the empire they had built for the past hundred years and was taking apart the bureaucratic deep state, brick by brick. He was doing what he knew best as a successful businessman, being efficient and getting rid of redundancy. In plain English, he was taking away the piggy bank of wasteful spending and reducing governmental power. This was a nonstarter for the deep state and we now see how far they will go to regain their power.
We are about to see liars and thieves take over and turn our country into something it was never meant to be through the most fraudulent election in American history. All of this is transpiring while too many Americans are sitting on their couches listening to the liberal media lies, worried about getting a disease which has a 99.9% recovery rate for those under 70. We have allowed the government bureaucrats to create such a fear in the American people that most of them don’t realize that their country is being stolen right out from under them. It was FDR, a democrat, who said there is nothing to fear but fear itself. He was so right and while many of us whimper in a corner for fear of a virus that has a death rate of less than one-tenth of one percent. It was Rahm Emanuel who said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste,” and you can bet the elite are taking full advantage of this so-called pandemic.
The left is preparing to take over our country and turn it into a socialist quagmire, tearing down our constitution one piece at a time. Between now and Jan 19th, you will have a chance to stop this fraudulent takeover. Please pick up your phones now and call your senators and congressman and tell them to stop this travesty of justice or face a challenger in their next primary election. Americans need to stop being complacent. You need to stand up and fight for your country or we will see the next administration take our freedoms, destroy our economy, and tear up our constitution in the blink of an eye.
