A Young Man’s Confusion!

I heard a 26-year-old Millennial call a radio talk show last week and ask, “Is this how politics has always been?” It was a good honest question. This young man wasn’t around for Ronald Reagan, Nixon, or the Bushes. All he knows is 8 years of Obama. The media LOVED Obama. He was the “Anointed One”, the Messiah. Of course, he decimated the military, ruined the economy, killed the oil and coal industries, lied outrageously to get his ruinous Health Bill passed. He said he was going to “fundamentally change America.” And he came very close to destroying it.

But there was nothing but praise for him and Michelle (some say Michael) and their two adopted daughters. They went to Hawaii, Africa, the Middle East to kiss the ring of the Saudi King and of course the worldwide “Apology tour.”. He told America that our best days were behind us. We were going to have to quit driving our cars, get used to a declining nation. The young 26-year-old man thought that was right because the media said it was. Every newspaper, every magazine, every TV network heaped praise on Obama. In their eyes he could do no wrong.

And then Donald Trump came along. He said we could be great again. He rebuilt the military, got the economy rolling, negotiated new and fair trade deals, got black unemployment sown to the lowest level in 50 years, got people off welfare, got more equity for women employees, brought companies back to America, got a tax cut for everyone, tried his best to get a wall along our southern border. And he did this all alone with no help from the republicans. And every day the 26-year-old man hears nothing but vile, derogatory remarks about him, investigations, treason, Russian collusion, allegations, outright lies about President Trump. “Is this how politics has always been?” he asks.

No, young man. This only happens when a Republican is President. The democrats and the D.C. establishment want the media to love them and that will never happen while a man like Trump is President. The democrat party has become totally communistic, the republican party is part of the “good old boy, go along to get along network.” They’ve never had a president who loves America over his own self interests. A President who is LOSISNG money by BEING President. They’ve never had a president who fights back against liberals, who doesn’t just remain quiet and take abuse sitting down like the republicans have always done before.

How refreshing it is to have a leader who believes in America’s uniqueness. Who will do his best to improve life for every American. Enjoy it while you can, 26-year-old Millennials, because you will never experience this again. When his term ends it will be D.C. business as usual. And the liberal media will love politicians once more.
