Reading the comments related to this series from family, friends and total strangers is an experience within itself. I have concluded that those on both the extreme far left and right would not be happy if Jesus or the Devil was running for President. If they were actually honest, they would not even vote for themselves. You could not satisfy them as they are so narrow minded they have no tolerance or flexibility period.
I just realized that I am Conservative but I am not as extreme as I myself perceived. I have a great friend, Glen Provost a retired lawyer, who I deeply respect. We have not crossed paths in a couple of years and if he read my Part Four article about Trump, he would tell me is that I finally woke up. What I refer to is my acceptance of a single-payer healthcare system for America. We have had some deep political discussions for several years and even though we respect each other the only political issue we ever agreed on was Term-Limits for all elected officials. Glen, if you read this it’s your turn to admit flexibility is mandatory if we ever unite Americans again.
My message to everyone who might read this article is to understand there is and never will be any human that is 100% perfect in every way. Norma or my kids will not believe that I said this as I always told them I was perfect.
Back to Trump. He is not perfect but he is a leader and he meets more of my desires than anyone running that has a chance to be elected. Let me share some more commitments and positions he has made public and that the media and those extremists noted above have ignored. If you have a candidate who has made equal or better promises on every issue I have revealed in this series, document them and I will post them for others to evaluate. Do not just pick some issues include them all.
Regarding welfare I read that he will reform our current welfare debacle and stated that “America needs a safety net, not a hammock.” He wants Congress to create a welfare to work program that would help reduce those on welfare and encourage people to get back to work. He will demand a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
Other positions he has addressed include his belief that climate change is a hoax. He opposes Common Core. We both are and believe that abortion must be evaluated if the pregnancy was due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother. This is the issue that divides the Republican Party and why I consider myself an “Independent”. If this issue is the reason he is not nominated as the Republican candidate I will support hiM if he runs as an Independent. I am sick of the Republicans who have no flexibility. We don’t need a police state mentality because of this single issue.
Trump is 100% for pro 2nd Amendment rights. His view and mine regarding same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman. We both know that this is a States-Rights issue, not a federal issue. That is why before the Progressives and Liberals who have been systematically destroying States-Rights, we were free to leave States that had laws we found objectionable.
To keep from making these articles too long I will try to wrap-up my reasons that I am supporting Trump in one more article that will give you a look at what real leaders are made of and why he has been a successful business man. He has made mistakes in life, relationships and business just like we all have made. I have made my decision and this series has explained why. Again, send me your factual reasons for opposing Trump and I will post them with your name on the blog. C Brewer
