Fortune Telling!

The first time I was eligible to vote (one had to be 21 at the time) I voted for Dwight Eisenhower. Then, the next time I felt enthusiastic about our country was when I voted for John Kennedy, and that ended abruptly and tragically. LBJ was a crook. Clinton was a crook. The Bushes were just stupid and incompetent. (They made it vocally plain that they wouldn’t vote for Trump – that proves my point.) Now, I feel encouraged again. So, let’s do some crystal ball gazing.

A new and vast oil shale deposit has been discovered in Texas. And we have the huge deposit in the Dakotas. President Trump will allow full use of these fuel resources. He will allow the Keystone pipeline to forge ahead. We’ll be drilling for oil and gas off all our coasts. ALL of the restraints Obama’s hatred of America have imposed on our energy resources will be flushed.

Imagine, if you will, gasoline at 80 cents a gallon. EVERYTHING you buy will be cheaper. Transportation costs are the main reasons for today’s high prices. Dropping the tax rate on businesses (we have the highest rate in the world) will encourage new businesses and more competition between current businesses, and that will also lower the cost of EVERYTHING you buy. With more money in the citizen’s pockets they will buy more and that will encourage new businesses and services to thrive. The economy will soar.

Blocking our borders will stop illegal trash from invading our country. You don’t see a lot of doctors or scientists or educators or physicists wading across the Rio Grande. This will save jobs for the 93 million Americans now out of work, or who have giving up looking for a job. More people working means a higher standard of living for everyone.

All of this means more money for the government, even though taxes will be lower, and that allows our military to be rebuilt and a stronger defense will restore respect for America around the globe. More money will shore up our law enforcement. No cop should be forced to ride alone into drug infested neighborhoods. More cops mean safer neighborhoods for everyone, especially the elderly who cannot protect themselves.

Of course, there are a number of people who have been feeding on the government tit for so long, there is no hope for them. We’ve always had them and we will always have a certain number of worthless losers. BUT, for the first time in recent memory, every young person in this country will have the possibility to become whatever they wish to be, if they are willing to work hard enough for it, and have a great enough desire to achieve their dream.

The future looks great. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. I’m glad that I am going to see America make a comeback before I die. America will be great again!
