As we draw nearer to Election Day 2020, the choice for who should guide our nation as President of the United States keeps getting clearer and clearer. Do we elect a corrupt politician with 47 years of experience living off the government with a sordid history of shady business dealings while in office? Or do we re-elect a businessman with an impeccable record of success in his first term, all while battling a hostile Democratic House majority and Senate minority that sought to impeach him for unfounded allegations of collusion based on a congratulatory and diplomatic phone call with the recently elected president of Ukraine?
With less than a week to go, Democratic candidate and former vice-president Joe Biden continues to perform poorly on the campaign trail, when he’s on it, drawing what have to be record low numbers for those in attendance of his rallies. He continues to lie about things President Trump has said and done and is rarely fact-checked for his outlandish statements. He continues to present a landscape of confusion as to what he will do as regards his economic plan, his healthcare plan, and most notably, his energy plan.
On the energy front, he has contradicted himself about whether or not he will ban fracking. He claims he wants to “phase it out” so that renewable energy will become the new norm. Except that renewable energy can never replace fossil fuel energy in terms of its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Essentially, he has hinted at following the dictates of the AOC- and Kamala Harris-endorsed “Green New Deal,” which would cripple our economy at an estimated $100 trillion price tag.
As for healthcare, he seems to be signing on to the Bernie Sanders “Medicare-for-All” plan. Medicare was originally designed to be a healthcare plan for citizens over age 65 as well as those with disabilities and certain terminal diseases. But as with most things Democratic politicians get their hands on, they want to turn it into a nationalized “come-and-get-it” medical plan, free to even illegal (aka undocumented) aliens, paid for by the wealthy.
His economic plan is to raise taxes so high it will leave the country in a depression worse than what’s known as The Great Depression.
He has been wishy-washy on so many other issues which leave people wondering: Will he pack the Supreme Court with liberal and radically left judges? How will he manage COVID-19? And what will he do about the rising violence in mostly Democrat-run cities across America, spawned by an irrational and vitriolic hatred for President Trump? With his track record of decades of failure, how can Americans expect him to lead effectively?
Why the hatred for Trump in the first place? For many, they have been deceived by a dishonest media which tell them that President Trump is racist, bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, etc., etc., etc. It’s clearly not true but the leftist media aren’t going to tell the truth. When Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he spoke of the problem at the southern border where illegals come in, some who are rapists, some who are murderers (emphasis mine). He did not say all Mexicans are rapists or all Mexicans are murderers. He said some are, because it is true. The media know this well, but they refuse to correct this lie.
The media also lied about President Trump calling white supremacists “very fine people” when he spoke of the horrible tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville, VA in August 2017, where two groups of people were protesting the tearing down of statues, leaving one person dead and many others injured. What Trump said was “… and you have some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” He added, “You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”
Fending off haranguing questions from argumentative reporters, Trump clarified, “And you had people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many other people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists.”
This is that part that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, corrupt Democrats and the dishonest mainstream media deliberately omit and cause people to believe that Trump is racist. This is the hatred they have and continually perpetuate for President Trump.
All this should point to the clear and sensible choice. Re-electing Trump to office will ensure that we remain on a path of success. While it’s important to investigate for yourselves what is fact and what is fiction, when it comes to voting this election, it’s important to reject hate and vote Trump.
