OBAMA & BIDEN POLICIES FOOLED US TWICE!

I didn’t vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden in 2008 or 2012.  In 2008 it was a very difficult choice for me because I had devoted many years to fighting racial discrimination and eagerly wanted to vote for the first black President.  However, on eight of the top ten National issues, I disagreed with Obama’s and Biden’ positions, so I couldn’t vote for them in good conscience.  Though I didn’t vote for the Obama-Biden ticket, I believed what they said about their being “post-partisan” and wanting a “transparent” Presidency.  While there were some rumblings on the right about Obama really being a far-left radical, I was unconvinced and believed his message of “hope and change.”  By the 2012 Presidential election, I had become convinced that President Obama and Vice-President Biden followed Democrat policies which had destroyed many businesses and jobs, and made health insurance unaffordable for anyone who paid for Obamacare themselves.

Eight years after being elected, Obama-Biden had a record of a number of failures, of wasting trillions of dollars, of race relations being much worse, and of creating a health care system that was far worse and much more expensive than most Americans could afford.  After eight years of Obama-Biden, we had a Civilian Labor Force Participation Rate the lowest since 1978, 62.8%, and a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) whose growth did not reach 3% annually for his entire presidency.  Calling President Obama and Vice-President Biden economically incompetent doesn’t come close to describing the situation accurately.

“But Obama-Biden did their best,” you might say.  Their best was simply not good enough.  They were in over their heads.  They are good fathers and husbands, but their policies as President and Vice-President have been a disaster and therefore whoever ran as the Democrat nominee in 2020 (Joe Biden) should not be elected because Democrat policies simply do not work.

Most democrat policies are very destructive.  There is no war on women (see my post, “War on Women”), no longer very much new man-made Global Warming (see my post, “Is Global Warming due mostly to Solar Flares or is it Man-Made?”), not much racism (see my post, “Obsessed with Race”), a phony gun issue (see my post “More Guns, Less Crime”), etc., ad infinitum.  I spend over six hours/day following national and political issues, and have my Masters degree in Government Administration from the University of Pennsylvania,  so it’s easy for me to know who knows what they’re doing and who does not (and President Obama didn’t know, economically, and had surrounded himself with economic advisors who all believed in Keynesian economics although it has never worked).  Though the U.S. was fooled twice by President Obama, Vice-President Biden and the corrupt and criminal Democrat Party, I don’t intend to be fooled again.

On a positive note, President Obama was the very first African-American president and is beloved by many of all colors ad creeds.  It took 145 years for African-Americans to go from slavery (up to 1863) to having one of its own being elected to President of the United States (in 2008).  In addition, President Obama appointed two female Supreme Court justices.

WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP BE RE-ELECTED?

Will President Trump be re-elected on November 3, 2020?  I believe that, given his accomplishments, he should be…but of course that doesn’t mean that he will be.  Further, I believe that he is becoming our greatest President. Let’s take a look…

George Washington was our greatest President…without him there would be no United States of America.  Abraham Lincoln was our second greatest for ending slavery and preventing the South from seceding from the Union and therefore keeping the United States as one country.  Ronald Reagan was our third greatest because America was in a huge mess after Jimmy Carter’s presidency and Reagan turned it around by cutting taxes and Federal regulations which grew the economy, and by rebuilding our military to the extent that the Soviet Union collapsed.  The Gross Domestic Product (which is the measure of the size of the economy) almost doubled in the ten-year period from the time Reagan’s cuts in tax rates went into effect (1983).

I believe that Donald Trump is now becoming our greatest: he already knows the best policies to pursue for the U.S. to prosper…in addition to knowing how to handle sticky international problems and strengthening our military, but now he needs to improve at dealing with the Democrats and the media and be more careful in his choice of words to protect himself from the likes of Dick Durbin, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, etc.

A few of the President’s major accomplishments include his initiating  and signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which stimulated the U.S. economy, big time.  This came as the President terminated thousands job-killing useless regulations, initiating a huge increase (10 trillion dollars) in the Stock Market, creation of 5 million new jobs, very low unemployment rate (3.6 %), increases in the Civilian Labor-Force Participation Rate, and growth in the Gross Domestic Product by 3-5%.  Moreover, by giving the military more flexibility in fighting ISIS, most areas formerly held by ISIS have been recaptured.  President Trump is now building an illegal-immigration-stopping wall on our southern border, and attempting to end to chain migration and  VISA-lottery immigration.  He also made huge increases in the military budgets for both FY 2018, ’19 and ’20, which significantly improved the military’s strength and readiness.  He also negotiated great trade deals with China, Mexico and Canada, Japan, South Korea, etc. and cracked down on China’s intellectual theft from America.  He created 9,000 economic opportunity zones in inner cities and other poor areas and passed prisoner reform legislation to help prisoners be treated more fairly.  Despite massive resistance, President Trump also temporarily stopped travel from China to the United States on January 31, 2020, in order to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus from China to America.

What other achievements does President Trump need to be re-elected and then become the greatest President in U.S. history?  I believe that how Trump makes America great again despite everything the mainstream media and the Democrat Party do to stop him, will determine, in part, how great President Trump becomes.  Put more simply, Trump’s political enemies will be somewhat responsible for the degree that he becomes great.  There is a simple Arab saying that makes it clearer, “the greater your enemy, the greater the victory over that enemy.”  President Trump has many powerful enemies.

After seeing what President Trump has accomplished thus far, aside from being  that I believe that he is well on his way to becoming our greatest President, what else does he still need to do to be re-elected and become our greatest?  This is what I believe he needs to do:

  1. finish building the southern border wall, end the visa lottery, end sanctuary cities, severely limit chain migration, establish a merit-based immigration system,
  2. pass a great American infrastructure bill,
  3. replace Obamacare with something much better and cheaper for a great healthcare insurance system,
  4. prepare a plan to get to zero budget deficits and begin significantly paying down the national debt,
  5. eliminate ineffective government programs and agencies and reduce the size of the Federal workforce,
  6. continue rebuilding the military to be stronger than it ever has been,
  7. significantly reduce the opioid crisis,
  8. expose and end voter fraud,
  9. revitalize and make safe depressed inner cities,
  10. help clean up corruption in government and political parties,
  11. continue appointing more conservative judges,
  12. be more congenial, don’t unfairly criticize anyone, don’t exaggerate,
  13. be re-elected President in 2020 to finish all initiatives.
  14. stop China’s intellectual theft from America.
  15. add more Middle Eastern countries to the Israel-UAE, Bahrain, Sudan peace agreement.
  16. keep Democrat voter fraud to under 3,000,000 fraudulent votes in presidential elections

In today’s partisan political climate, it’s difficult to get much accomplished without great effort, but President Trump is getting important things done despite his many enemies. We’ll know on November 3 or perhaps much later if he’s re-elected and in a few years just how great a president President Trump was.  He has significant headwinds from Mainstream Media which has become completely dishonest.
