POLITICS – DESTROYING AMERICA FROM WITHIN!

I waited until Easter Sunday to publish this hoping someone can explain why most leaders are causing this horrible event and fighting our President, Donald Trump from trying to heal the wounds. Our media has now become the trash and supporter of hate, up-evil and every way they can cause damage, destruction and even death for others. Our Congress is rotten, the Judiciary system is rife with political power that overrides the law even at the Supreme Court. Every day the two largest political organizations draw lines in the sand for battle and the only man trying to heal all of the wounds is being made the most hated man in America and he is the only leader trying to stop the hate and “Make America Great Again”. Someone one please tell me “WHY,WHY,WHY”.  For Gods Sake folks will there ever be another chance before “Civil War Two?

One of my grandsons and some of his friends sent me some unique thoughts about politics. As many people who read my articles know I am sick of 24/7/365 where politics has taken over the media and only major tragedies and the weather interrupt constant politics. These young men have been having forums and debates and allowed me to use these issues to frame my thoughts.

The First issue they agreed on was “every politician is a corporate whore”. I can’t disagree in full but there are a few, who try hard to blaze new trails but the seniority power system is so powerful they have little or no voice. Unless they have been in Congress  for 24 years they are just followers. Congress, an astute body of elected officials, believe they are “royalty”. One of President Trump’s greatest challenges will be to convince these people they work for the people instead of being Rulers of anyone but themselves. Basically they believe they are above the law, like Charles Rangel, who would get re-elected if he was in prison or dead. The people know he is a crook but who cares if he steals and cheats for them too.

The second issue they discussed was, “campaign finance law basically exists to be super vague to keep out 3rd parties and disguise or totally hide where all politicians money is coming from”. “They feel that only the politicians themselves truly know who each they owe favors to. They concluded that it has to be far more people, usually a lot of people. The consensus was it was definitely influencing policy. They agreed that with Donald Trump we know exactly where his money comes from and it will be difficult for army of lobbyist/backers to be able to manipulate Trump. They concluded that this is reflected in some policy positions he has promised, like the changes to the tax code to close loopholes, that he knows as well as anyone, because he’s used them himself for decades. This analogy by these young men is impressive and zeros in on many of the changes that must be made to give them the freedoms and opportunity  I have enjoyed for nearly 88 years.

The third issue they had consensus was the traits of successful leaders. Their discussions ranged a historical figure you admire, to a great coach and the leaders including they have studied and they really admired. They typically singled out those who are straightforward and honest with their people. They admired the ones who speak their mind and stand up for what they believe in, are open minded but firm in their convictions, and tend to shine when making difficult decisions.

Sadly they see that today the traits necessary to be a politician are directly opposite. They concluded that to be a successful politician today you have to be covert in expressing your true thoughts and motives when they’re controversial instead of providing people what they really want. They believe politicians purposely avoid tough decisions like the plague and only stand for what no one is opposed to. As an example look at political debates, most of the politicians evade direct responses to every questions. Most just talk and talk and say nothing. Trump has no trouble expresses himself legitimately to say exactly what he thinks. They feel he seems honest, even when what he expresses is unexpected. He has no concerns that some people aren’t going to like what he has to say. They conclude that Trump answers every question in the debates, with refreshing responses.

It appears that the consensus agreed that Trump is open minded. Even though Trump was once a Democrat, just like I was, now he’s running as a  Republican They feel he’s still very liberal on a large number of issues and I can’t agree with their term “very liberal. I am about four paces to the right of Attila-the-Hun but Trump’s promise to clean up the Washington swamp is worth allowing some liberal flexibility.

They feel the Comedy Central roast proved he was a good sport about it. He’s clearly capable of laughing at himself, which implies he’s aware he may be wrong at times. Any honest person will admit they are not perfect

These young men don’t think he’s racist at all, though he’s definitely more worried about terrorism than they feel is warranted. This is one point where they are completely wrong. I agree with their assessment that he is brash and they are not interested in having him as a friend.

They feel that George W. Bush seemed like a genuinely nice guy and we invaded two countries, Obama seems like a genuinely nice guy and NSA spying and drone strikes are at an all time high. Maybe being a nice guy isn’t that important to running a country. In reality both Bush and Obama are Progressives but Bush is not as socialistic as Obama.

I agree with their conclusion that Trump has been the victim of gotcha journalism and misquotation or out of context quotation by both the Demoncrats and the GOP. We agree that most politicians don’t like what he really stands for as the entire Washington cabal is so scared they are shaking in their boots.

Another issue has been his statements that made the front page recently on the internet that were wildly misrepresented. He was asked specifically about ISIS’ ability to recruit online and was talking about trying to take steps to limit that. To me it was obvious from what he said that he doesn’t know much about the Internet, but to me what he said about “get with Bill Gates” that was so heavily mocked here was pretty clear in context, that he was saying he wants to meet with experts in the field and see what our options are. As much as he has been ripped they thought he was making a point mentioning Gates. Trump knows Bill Gates politically, and how liberal he is, and I think was implying it’s a non-partisan issue and showing the angle they’d take, which was what the next line mocking people crying about freedom of speech was about. Trump knows Bill Gates is the last guy on earth who would want to filter the Internet and restrict freedom, that’s his point in dropping his name.

They seem far more concerned with the similar statements, from a more informed position, that Hillary and Obama have already made concerning freedoms and spying on the Internet.

My grandson, Landon Miller, provided me with the feelings of a group of young men in their late 20’s. I hope Landon will give any credits to others by listing them in comments after this article is posted. Although they may be neophytes, they show some real courage and challenge that really surprised this old man. I have never tried to influence my children, grandchildren or great grandchildren politically but to be the best at whatever they choose to do with their lives. All of them are not aligned with me totally and I served over five years in the US military defending their, mine and every Americans rights to free speech and political leanings.  C Brewer

This article was written over two years ago and I had decided to wait a while to publish it. I would challenge these young men  to get together and see if they still have the same feelings and outlooks today. If they accept I will publish unedited as a part two to the subject.

It would interesting to have some young liberals express their comments and possibly send me why they disagree with this message. I will also post their comments unedited. My intent to get both sides of the issues as America is being destroyed from within. This is sad to watch for this old man who has seen America work together in World War ll and then start the destruction movement in the 1960’s with the Clinton’s and other dissidents stirred up by Communists Professors in our universities.  C Brewer

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

POLITICS & JUSTICE STINKS!

Watching politics fairly early in my life has progressed from civil discourse into what we have today, a lying, race baiting   “Blood Sport”.  The one fact that has not changed is the Democrats continue to win elections with votes from the poor, ill informed, aliens and the minorities who never gain stature. In my lifetime, I grew up in the 1930’s, when 98% of Americans had nothing and 2% had everything. There was no middle class that we saw bloom in the years after WWII. The sad part is that the other group I described above stayed poor by design to mass vote for the Democrats.

When I was a young man the Conservatives were the Democrats in Texas. My grandfather was a local Democrat serving as a County Clerk for some 30 years. He took me as a boy to sit in a courtroom and observe the the legal process. Later in life I went to school with the daughter of a Democratic Governor of Texas. Both my grandfather and  Governor Jester would turn over in their graves if they could see how the Democrats have changed. Today they are the party of hate, deception, lying, promoters of civil disruption and property destruction.

When Obummer was elected President conservatives were deeply disappointed as the Democrats have been since Trump was elected. The difference was that conservatives did not promote hate, organize civil disobedience and widely promote destruction of other people’s property. We did not see marches in the streets, flag burning, and the mass hysteria of hate directed towards our veterans by kneeling or fist waving during the playing of our National Anthem at sporting events.

The Obummer years did produce the 300% increase in our national debt. More hate and civil unrest between Americans since the Civil War. A shift of people’s retirement savings from the middle class to welfare programs. Addition of over 2,000,000 more younger people on Social Security. The largest increase in underemployed people on welfare in history. The largest increase in Government Employees in history. The destruction of all industry retirement programs. The total destruction of employee healthcare benefits for new employees. A healthcare debacle that will bankrupt America if it can’t be modified.

The Demoncrats has declared war on gun ownership and promote that all guns be confiscated by the government. This has been tried before and actually allowed Hitler to destroy over 6,000,000 humans. Gun control in Europe will just make the takeover by the Muslims easier. We have opened floodgates for the immigration of Muslims who hate us and will never assimilate as Americans that is ruining Europe already.

The enemy we have in the biggest war we have ever faced today is our own Government. We now have a Supreme Court and Federal Judges who make laws instead of enforcing the laws enacted by Congress. We have made Government employees super America who have benefits far better than the rest of us. We have thousands of ex-government employees serving as consultants, lobbyist who have millions to use to buy their ways to impact every decision made by Congress and every level of our government including the Judicial process.

Mr Trump defined this morass as a swamp. The unique happening of trying to drain this swamp is 100% of the Demoncrats in Congress oppose anything Trump proposes including lower taxes, better healthcare and creation of more jobs. The real surprise has been the handful of Republicans like John McCain and the rest of the Republicans in Name Only, RINO’s, who have been exposed as Liberal-Progressives. If the Republicans can’t unite it will delay the “Swamp Draining” until the 2018 elections and the Republicans purge itself of RINO’s.

I may not live long enough to see how Trump finishes the things he promised but I hope and pray he is not assassinated like others who tried before him. I hope he forces a vote on term limits on Congress and some way to oust Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices that openly make law instead of enforcing it.    

Trump has tried to enact everything he proposed as a candidate and promised as our 45th President. If the Democrats had any intelligence they would admit they just serve to say “NO” and let Trump fail. The reason for the battle is they know he has the votes now to eventually do everything he promised. “DUMB” is the best way to describe a Democrat today. It is pretty obvious they know who owns the most weapons and ammo and if a civil war Obummer wanted is their objective they better hope they are bulletproof.
