Donald J. Trump is now officially the Republican candidate for President, along with Mike Pence, Governor of the state of Indiana for Vice President.
There’s an old saying that “The proof is in the pudding”. I’ve no idea where or how that originated but the meaning is plain, at least. You’ll know if it’s any good or not when you start eating it. In the case of Donald Trump, if he’s elected we’ll know soon enough if all that stuff he said was true or not.
I woke this morning with the thought that we could end up with a right-wing dictatorship, but I really wouldn’t mind that. We’re on the verge of having a left-wing dictatorship right now, and in a choice between the two, I’ll take right-wing any day. If that’s what we end up with, all the drug addicts and dealers would suddenly find themselves on the short-shrift list along with open borders, illegal aliens, Black Lives Matter and other thug groups, inner-city warfare and many other illegal activities. He says he’s the Law and Order Candidate. That would be a damn good thing up to a point.
We have too many laws now, there isn’t an attorney in the nation who knows a tenth of them all, yet “ignorance of the law is no excuse” if you find yourself charged with some crime. Of course, most of the time we know when we’re doing wrong, but it’s a problem when someone is arrested for doing one thing and is charged with five or six crimes that all stem from the one crime, and this happens on a regular basis. So we’ll wait and see about our Law and Order candidate and hope if he’s elected he doesn’t go too far.
Anyway, right now our job is to get him elected. Failure to do so will be the end of the America I was born into. Talk about troubled times, I was born at the very beginning of 1939 when Hitler was invading Eastern Europe. I was almost 3 years old when I heard President Roosevelt announce over our radio that Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor and we were declaring war. We had a long, hard fight and millions gave their lives to preserve our nation from the tyranny of a Nazi dictatorship, Hitler’s National Socialist (NAZI) Party. Now here I am at the other end of my life span, and we’re having to fight socialism all over again.
You have to give the bastards credit, they never give up. Well, neither do we.
