“I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Those eloquent words come from the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, and are engraved in stone at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC. President Trump has promised to protect that monument against anarchist Democrats who have seized control of the streets in many cities they run. These same anarchists want to destroy the Washington Monument, because it commemorates the first President of these United States and the father of our country. No rational citizen supports such destruction. But many Democrats, who pretend to be rational, turn a blind eye.

Let me be clear. The opposition party has a vital role to play when they do not control the White House. That is the role of ‘loyal opposition,’ where they offer constructive ideas and criticisms that seek to improve our country, not destroy it. Once they, or their surrogates, move into violence, including murder and looting to force their way, it is insurrection, not loyal opposition. Violence against the republic includes hate speech designed to encourage ongoing violence. Joe Biden’s likening of President Trump to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was a step too far. Goebbels assumed the German Presidency for one day after Hitler committed suicide in 1945, then murdered his six children, and committed suicide with his wife.

Democrats are telling us that our country is hopelessly racist and needs to be destroyed to save it. That is very far from true. The United States is the only country on the face of the earth that has consistently stood against tyranny and today strongly protects the rights of all her citizens, regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. Without our leadership, the world would quickly fall victim to “every form of tyranny.”

President Donald Trump should be re-elected if for no other reason than his total dedication to American ideals and to every citizen, in the face of open revolt from extremists. He is a truly remarkable President.

Remarkable Honesty, Remarkable Accomplishments

The most remarkable thing is that Trump keeps his promises. Typical politicians promise one thing and do another immediately after elected. NOT Donald Trump. He has been more faithful than anyone I can remember and has shown more skill at fulfilling his promises than other politicians. Of course, President Trump was a very successful businessman, not a politician, for most of his life. Business people know how to get things done. Biden is running against President Trump pretending to be a “moderate,” but with the most radical party platform that this nation has ever seen.

Trump’s accomplishments include a booming economy, in place of the anemic recovery during the Obama years, a large tax cut for the middle class, disproportionate economic gains for low wage earners, greatly expanded opportunities for minorities, and a booming stock market that helped all who are saving for retirement. President Trump rebuilt our military that had lost significant strength during the Obama-Biden years. We are once again second to none.

Overcoming fierce opposition, President Trump succeeded in constructing long portions of the wall he promised to protect our southern border with Mexico. With 129 million largely poor people in Mexico, it is the tenth most populous nation on earth. We could have been overrun. Democrats fought him every step of the way, arguing that we should welcome all who cross our borders illegally. Donald Trump restored the rule of law.

President Trump also saved America from very bad deals that threatened our economy and security. He pulled us out of the Iran Nuclear Deal that allowed the number one state sponsor of terrorism to continue their aggressive behavior and desire for nuclear weapons. He pulled us out of NAFTA that gave Mexico and Canada unfair trade advantages and replaced it with the balanced US Mexico Canada Agreement. He completely scrapped our participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership that would have shipped still more American jobs to Asia.

President Trump had the courage to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accords which promised to hobble the US economy. The latter move took particular courage, because Democrats are so strongly superstitious about ‘Climate Change.’ Although the President does not understand the science, his instincts correctly inform him that it is complete fraud.

Historic Successes

President Trump has stood up to China in a long overdue reckoning on trade and military aggression. The Chinese have noted Trump’s ability to play what they termed “three-dimensional chess.” Geriatric Joe Biden could not even play checkers with the Chinese. His son Hunter did take home a billion dollar investment deal that is one of several influence peddling scandals shaking the Bidens.

Communist North Korea has not been able to intimidate the United States. President Trump opened up communications with the Kim Jong Un regime, instead of continuing on a path toward war.
President Trump has also moved decisively to disengage us from wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, while keeping us out of others. He took out ISIS and eliminated its leader al-Baghdadi. He took out the notorious Iranian terrorist, Qasem Soleimani and hit Syrian chemical weapon storage facilities with cruise missiles. But he kept us out of deeper involvement in ongoing conflicts.
President Trump deserves great praise for moving the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Several previous Presidents promised to do so. Trump actually did it.

When the coronavirus pandemic hit, courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party, Trump moved decisively to address our medical and economic needs. He turned what might have been a slide into a depression into a “V” shaped economic recovery.

Finally, a Baby-Boomer to Redeem the Baby Boomers.

After the Second World War, America experienced unparalleled prosperity and optimism. The downside was that “The Greatest Generation” gave way to “Baby Boomers” who grew up largely unchallenged by the events that had propelled their parents to greatness. Without challenges they lost their way to “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.” The Vietnam quagmire was a particularly low point for my generation, with Jane Fonda’s pose on a North Vietnamese antiaircraft gun symbolic of a generation that had lost its way. Americans who had been able to distinguish right from wrong could no longer do so. Many became Lenin’s “useful idiots,” mouthing Communist propaganda.

Some, like Donald Trump, kept the faith. Thank you, Mr. President.

Three Nobel Peace Prize Nominations

Although Nobel Peace Prizes have lost much of their luster due to inappropriate awards in the past, President Trump was just nominated for three because of the Trump Doctrine of reducing US involvement in foreign wars and negotiating historic peace treaties in the Muslim world. These are paradigm shifts that involve formal peace between various Arab states and Israel and economic cooperation between Kosovo and Serbia.

“Our Values”

Far Left Democrats are fond of talking about their values, as though they were fundamental American values, when in fact they are little more than divisive identity politics and virtue signaling designed to persuade Americans to discard democracy in favor of authoritarian rule based on Orwellian manipulation. Their overt racism masquerades as anti-racism. Their overt fascism masquerades as anti-fascism. Their rioting masquerades as “peaceful protests.” And so on.

President Trump is very different. His values are those of our Founding Fathers, including Thomas Jefferson. His guiding principles are the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal…”

President Donald John Trump deserves the vote of every American who supports the greatest nation on earth.
