TRUMP: LAST CHANCE TO RE-ELECT A POPULIST PRESIDENT?

A few Republican politicians this year are not supporting President Trump because he’s not currently leading in most polls, although his approval among Republicans is at 93%.  Some Republican politicians  figure that, if Joe Biden becomes president, they can always regain the Presidency in 2024, but is this realistic?

Today, the “open borders” policy of Joe Biden (2/3 of immigrants vote Democrat), as well as a Biden Supreme Court probably ruling that a photo ID or other proof of citizenship is not required to vote (and the consequent increase in voter fraud from today’s 3 million fraudulent (Democrat) votes, 2020 may be the last year that a Republican can become president of the United States.

Consequently, beginning in 2024, it might be a waste of time to even bother holding another presidential election.  We would have Democrat presidents for the foreseeable future.  So those Republicans who are not supporting Donald Trump this year and then plan to elect an establishment Republican in 2024, are deluding themselves.  If President Trump is re-elected this year, among other things, he will finish building the wall on our southern border and stop illegal immigration, help ensure that photo ID’s are required to vote, and purge registration roles of deceased voters and people registered to vote in more than one State.

So what’s a voter to do if s/he doesn’t like Joe or Donald for president?  List your ten most important issues and rate both Joe and Donald on each of those ten issues.  You might have to listen carefully to discover what each candidate (not any journalist) has to say on each of your ten issues. Then you need to consider what Joe and Donald have accomplished in their lives.  Finally, you need to think about how honest they are and then tally their total score.  Whatever nominee receives the highest score you vote for.  Try to avoid even considering non-issues like racism (see Ann Coulter’s book, “Mugged”), sexism  (see Katie Pavlich’s book, “Assault and Flattery”) or man-made climate change (see Bjorn Lomborg’s book, “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” Alex Epstein’s book, “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels,” and John L. Casey’s book, “Dark Winter”) since these issues are phony for these candidates.  Do understand, however, that if Donald Trump is not elected in 2020, there might never be another Republican president and that, with Joe Biden selecting the next two or three Supreme Court justices and the consequent loss of your individual right to own a firearm and other Constitutional rights, the United States will move far to the left, default on the National debt, and government corruption will become even more rampant than it is today and move closer to becoming a Venezuela-style country.  This may be the very last chance for America to re-elect a populist president and fix its numerous remaining problems (see Michael Anton’s book, The Stakes: America at the point of no return, and his article in The American Mind, called “The Coming Coup”).

HILLARY CLINTON vs. DONALD TRUMP

The Clinton and the Trump campaigns are close to an end after being hard-fought.  Currently, Clinton is doing better in the media-run polls than Trump, though Trump is doing better than Hillary in the most accurate-in-the-past poll (Rasmussen), and his rallies are getting larger than his usual large crowds.  Note that one of the recent WikiLeaks “John Podesto” emails told the media how to rig polls to make it appear that Hillary was trouncing Donald (this was done to achieve a “bandwagon effect”).

Multi-billionaires, like Donald Trump, obviously don’t get to be wealthy by being stupid.  However, Trump is prone to rhetorical excesses. He is the populist anti-establishment candidate, called by his son, Eric, a “blue-collar billionaire”.

Hillary Clinton has an interesting hand because she was President Obama’s Secretary of State, however she has developed into a good debater and speaker.  As the WikiLeaks “Podesto” emails have exposed, as well as many more credible sources, Hillary Clinton will do almost anything, no matter how corrupt or illegal, to win the election and become President of the United States.  Moreover, the FBI has re-opened the investigation of her having classified information on her private computer server.

On policy, Trump has the advantage because Obama’s policies have hurt medical care, foreign policy, the military, the economy, Israel, etc., and Hillary, as Obama’s Secretary of State, is closely allied with Obama’s policies.  On the other hand, if you only watch NBC, ABC, or CBS, you have’nt heard about these negatives about Obama (so Obama’s shortcomings don’t really matter that much).

There are many reasons for electing “your” candidate, but here is the strongest reason for supporting either Clinton or Trump.

o for Clinton: if you like Obama’s presidency, you’ll like Hillary; however, you’ll have to overlook rampant corruption in a Clinton Administration (past performance is the best indicator of future behavior).  Hillary Clinton should be better than Obama was as commander-and-chief of the military.

o for Trump: he would appoint at least 3 conservative Supreme Court justices, his economic plan would double the size of the economy (Gross Domestic Product or GDP) within 10 years after his policies are put  into effect (which is what happened under President Reagan), he would fix illegal immigration, and he would repeal and replace Obamacare.

I’m a political junkie because much of my education and interests were about government and my jobs were with the Federal, a State and a city government, where elected political leaders were in charge.  I know both sides of every issue and therefore know who is fabricating and twisting facts to support their policies.  For the sake of everyone on the planet, I pray we make the right decision in selecting our next president.
