Candidate’s message trumped by political incorrectness

The political season is heating up and one person is dominating the news.
On Aug. 6 the first televised debate between the top 10 Republican candidates will take place. I’m not even sure there will be a Democratic debate. I guess Democrats are in love with Hillary Clinton despite Bernie Sanders drawing large crowds. On the Republican side, leading up to the debates is the dominance of Donald Trump in the media coverage.
As many of you are aware, I live half the year in mainland Mexico. I live among the Mexican people as an obvious minority. I understand what it is like to be a minority but I wouldn’t even think of trying to take advantage of the Mexican system by demanding that their government give me health care, food stamps, section eight housing and sanctuary from committing crimes.
Why the USA does this for illegals is beyond mind boggling. We even have more than 200 American sanctuary cities that protect illegals from deportation … including San Diego!
Donald Trump continues to make headlines because of his comments that Mexico doesn’t send its best.
He said that Mexico sends murderers, rapists and others who are not good for America and that “some are good people too I guess.” The press, the Democrats and even most of the Republican candidates all have gotten their panties up in a bunch over what the Donald had to say.
When you are a minority, like myself, you tend to tred softly, not to bring attention to yourself and for the vast majority of those who cross our border illegally (86.3 percent), all they want to do is reunite with family members and if they can earn in one hour what it takes them to make in a whole day doing menial labor, the illegals will continue to flood our country. Donald Trump took that issue on.
Donald Trump knows that Mexico can and will become the Southern Hemisphere’s next economic China.
That country is on the verge of exploding economically with all its untapped resources and Trump wants to exploit that to America’s favor through proper immigration and trade. He wants the illegals to come to America the right way through legal immigration and wants to shut the border down so that the eventual ISIS illegals don’t invade and set up shop in America.
Statistics can be manipulated to paint any picture an ideological author wants to paint.
But when our government’s own statistics point out that 3.5 percent of the population in the United States is illegal yet 13.7 percent of the prison population is made up of illegal immigrants, people should take note.
What Donald Trump stated had nothing to do with legal immigrants. He pointed out the obvious and so in our politically correct society today Trump is being portrayed as a racist and bigot.
Just two weeks ago a beautiful young woman, Kathyrn Steinle, who is the age of my son and just a tad younger than my youngest daughter, was shot and killed in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had been deported seven times.
My question, as is Trump’s, is how does someone break into our country seven times especially when that person has five felony convictions? Trump was not disparaging the Mexican people; he was disparaging our Swiss-cheese border protection. Trump wants a Wall of China on our southern border. If I were the father of Kate Steinle I would be asking, “How high?”
Many call Trump a fraud because he used to be a Democrat and has donated large sums in the past to Democratic candidates.
He isn’t stupid. Our system allows anyone to approach their elected representatives in an attempt to influence legislation in their favor. Trump also donated to Republican candidates.
Trump used to be for a path to citizenship for illegals. He was also pro-choice regarding abortion and at one time he was for universal health care.
None of those are platforms for the Republican Party so most all of hisopponents, Republican and Democrat, call Trump a fraud.
There is a caveat. Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat also. People and politicians evolve on issues. Just ask Hillary and Barack. Both campaigned for marriage between a man and woman just four years ago.
Today both call anyone against gay marriage a bigot. Americans evolve on issues and so do politicians.
The election cycle for 2016 is going to be interesting to say the least.
I will participate but I will also have a ringside seat down in Mexico watching to see how they react. At least it won’t be another boring election cycle that boils all of our country’s issues down to whether the American people will pay for a woman’s birth control pills or not or whether a woman earns as much as a man. It’s time Americans heard the real issues even if they’re coming from a mega-egomaniacal candidate.
To me, this guy is refreshing. I’m sick of America being portrayed as weak and spineless. Give me a bombastic leader that our enemies fear.
I guarantee you our enemies do not want Donald Trump leading this nation just like Iran feared Reagan and gave us back our hostages on day one of his presidency.
We need someone who cannot be bought off and isn’t afraid to say it like it is.
America needs someone that talks tough, can’t be bought and doesn’t care about political correctness. Thank God there’s one person who isn’t afraid to speak his mind without having advisors saying, “You’ll offend someone.” I’m sick of it and so are the American people. Again, this is going to be a quite interesting election cycle!

Anyone who thinks we can trust Iran, needs to be admitted to a mental asylum? Let’s face it the only people who trust Obama anymore, is the First Lady, his administration and the bacteria that live of the U.S., taxpayers and other people’s money. Iran cannot be trusted, as they have broke every previous agreement, cheated continuously and slaughtered thousands of people by handing out weapons to Hezbollah and insane militant groups. They are a bunch of fanatical zealots, who have focused on the destruction of Israel and America and I don’t believe for one minute, that they will honor any agreement.

In truth we don’t even know the location of hidden military nuclear plants, which will carry on the process of building a nuclear bomb. Then given the frozen money accounts back to the high-ranking religious authority Ayatollahs is a terrible risk, as that 100 billion dollars and selling oil to the rest of Europe will give them more time to complete their hideous task. Israel has no agreement with the leadership in Iran, and the first whisper of treachery they will blow Tehran out of existence and knowingly try to wipe out hidden sites. The average Iranian will be collateral damage, as Israel wants to survive and they have that right? OBAMA HAS GIVEN TEHRAN A “LICENCE TO MURDER”?

Obama in 6 years has drained Americas strength and we look like cowards compared to the Kurd Warriors, who are fighting ISIS without little assistance from our government. We belittle ourselves in front of the world; no longer have an enforcer as prior presidents and our enemies no longer feared us.

Obama has shrunk back from his duties to stand against Putins, Russia. Pres. Obama never helping the Ukraine government by supplying heavy weapons to push back Russians military backed rebels from occupying that sovereign country? He even took apart the Polish missile emplacements against the aggression of Russia in Europe. This President is a timid loser who has no strategic interest in arming the Kurds to utterly destroy the butchers of Christians—ISIS.

As for trusting President Obama with anything he says today, as I said before Americans are living in a dream world of safety. Our national security is at risk, with this governments open border policy and refusing to enforce immigration laws. Our country is under attack by foreign nationals by President Obama’s loopholes, specifically allowing ‘Sanctuary Cities’ to thrive. His leaders in different agencies have carried out his wishes, as if they are exempt from the Rule of Law and the Constitution. He and his administration lied about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). His partners in crime as Hillary Clinton cannot be absolved, for the terrible incident in Benghazi, Libya. The destruction of thousands of Emails in the controversy with wiping clean the personal severs and oh! Yes! The hidden world of the Clinton Foundation and the billions of dollars and where it was spent?; the Collusion between the IRS and the state department over spying on the Tea Party leadership is not being swept under the mat.

All Obama cares about is his legacy who has spent more money in Trillions of dollars then any previous president. He seems to be under the impression that foreign countries, its people are more important than the average American? As an Example NAFTA, a one-sided trade agreement, that not only killed thousands of American jobs, but businesses on this side of the border fell apart and closed. Same with China; poor products that fall apart that are sold in infomercials on TV. We don’t even sell our own televisions anymore?

I feel ashamed for myself; because I thought Obama was going to be a different type of President. I was as wrong as there has been no transparency and it’s provided an oral war in Congress. As of today America is unsettled like a house sitting precariously on the edge of cliff, with the ever lapping sea eroding our liberty and freedom right beneath us. Everyday I hear about the Politically Correct Police stealing our way of life, with nobody interdicting with its growing power. Under Obama’s rule millions of US don’t see ourselves as Americans any more, but a consortium owned either by mega corporations or far worse, an ideology of a one celled amoeba run by a controlling entity called a formless, bloated government cartel?

For me personally, I haven’t made of my mind who to vote for in 2016. Certainly not Hillary Clinton, as I principles are the same as Obama’s. Giving away our country to the open border movement, which without a border, we will not be, a sovereign nation anymore? Madam didn’t speak out about the San Francisco pier murder, by an illegal alien welcomed with thousands of criminal illegal aliens into a Sanctuary City. Obama also has remained silent? However I am going to remind my captive audience, that this retiree is going to write something every day about Obama, who is regressing America? Just by researching the Internet I found thousands of cases, of every conceivable illegal alien crime from slaughtering people on the highways to homicides that are hidden away in E-magazines and deep in the country small newspapers.

Unlike what the Left ricocheted around the Internet, the press, the media enforcement for America doesn’t affect LEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

I am not going to vote for career politicians as Jeb Bush, but I have been ecstatic to hear about Donald Trump, who could save America from its economic downturn; building up our military that President Obama is dismantling currently. Ending Sanctuary Cities, rescinding the ‘Anchor Baby’ chain migration law and only allowing talented people into the country as most developed nations. Trumps pledge to build a colossal wall, which will inhibit drugs and the influx of more poverty. I am also interested in Senator Ted Cruz, who didn’t play by the GOP elitist’s rules, who have berated Trump, except Scott Walker and Former governor Huckabee?

If you want to learn about the corruption in both political parties at the local, state and federal level and why the majority of politicians (ex-attorneys) doesn’t work for the American people click on open your eyes citizens and legal residents? Open your eyes and read the corruption files?

For a baby boomer to know so little about how gov, and life for that matter, works, to deliver a diatribe in defense of a bigot like Trump is appalling. Some health care and education is the only benefit the undocumented get here, because of people smarter than the writer, and the constitution, so we don’t have even more dumb sick people around. Since I was a child in the 50’s watching westerns I’ve known our criminals head for Mexican to evade capture here, so the holier-than-thou stuff is misplaced. You can’t make other countries be America, and rant and bully them into submission, that rhetoric only produces more enemies, and maybe the need to get more of our service men and women killed and maimed. Diplomacy is a better path to peace and prosperity. Finally, know someone’s record before letting them snow you with buzz words that appeal to your worst self, Trump buys wives, The movie First Wives Club, disrespecting women, the environment, regulations against financial evildoers that we all pay for eventually, are just a snapshot, if that’s refreshing to you, I hope you don’t vote.
