Time Loves a Hero

“Oh they Say
Time loves a hero
But only Time will tell
If he’s real
He's a legend from Heaven
If he ain’t
He was sent here from Hell”
-Little Feat

Donald J. Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States of America and it will be time that decides whether he is going to turn the U.S. around making us stronger militarily, internally safer, and an economically prosperous nation, or whether America has reached a point where it is impossible to turn our downward trend around and we become equally miserable with a low quality of life if Mr. Trump fails to govern in the manner he proposes.

It is laughable that the liberals, progressives and socialists are calling Mr. Trump a fascist when they were the ones who firebombed and vandalized Republican political offices in a number of states and they were the ones who were rioting and destroying property in places like Portland, or disrupting the ability of citizens to travel freely by disrupting traffic on interstates, highways and other streets. More often than not, those who engaged in these activities either were not registered to vote or failed to exercise their Constitutional right to do so. REALLY?! Isn't that activity the very nature of fascism?

Then we come to the issue of the Electoral College. How the liberals, democrats, progressives and socialists howled when Mr. Trump said he would wait to see the outcome of the election and how the outcome was determined before he would accept the results. How unprecedented such a notion was, they cried! Yet now they are the very ones trying to corrupt that process of our Constitution.

My, my my! How short the institutional memory of the left is! Was it not Al Gore who demanded that ever pregnant, dimpled and hanging chad be counted and that through divination the intent of invalidated cast ballots should be counted? Even then it was not enough. He took the election to the United States Supreme Court who turned him down flatly. That election went to the Electoral College. “Selected, not Elected…”, they brayed of the Election of G.W. Bush.  We also have the example of acceptance of election results as offered by John Kerry. “The election was stolen in Ohio…”, he droned on and on. Neither of them accepted the outcome of the election along with a peaceful transition of power in a democratically elected outcome.

Now in the 2016 election, we see the democrat liberals, progressives and socialists trying to corrupt the Electoral College. I think they are, the whole lot of them, hypocrites. Let’s not forget the futile recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania either. Spare no expense to delegitimize an election. That's ok, as long as Mr. Trump doesn't do it.

Mr. Trump was not my first choice for the presidential office. Originally, I supported Ted Cruz. In December of 2015 I wrote in an earlier blog article here-

“So why am I not a supporter of Donald Trump, you may ask? I am not a supporter of him for several reasons. While I agree with most of the things he says and what he says appears to resonate well with conservative people, the way he presents his views are unacceptable as he antagonizes people and does not try to persuade people who disagree with him. He does not present himself or his views in a presidential manner.
I also question whether he is a Trojan Horse, really a liberal democrat who is out to destroy any chance of electing an alternative to Hillary Clinton who will continue the policies of destroying our country that Barak Obama began. Apparently, he is a good friend of Ms. Clinton's too. I simply do not trust him to govern in a manner that is consistent with his stated political opinions. I do believe that he is an extremely divisive figure and not a uniting force in America”

I’ve come to change my views in some ways. I still have my reservations, but given the alternative, I believe that he was clearly the best person available to vote for.

Mr. Trump has seemed to moderate his tone and has been trying to bring the country together. He has, for the most part, been more presidential in his public speech, but I wish he would not use social media to make petty comments about trivial matters, such as how Saturday Night Live portrays him. I find that show to be irrelevant anyway. It hasn’t been very good since the early 1990’s.

I was obviously wrong about his being a Trojan Horse for the Democrat party. Originally, I thought he was very divisive, but I think he is much less divisive than a figure like Hillary Clinton and, unlike her, seems to want to be a uniting leader of the American people. If that were not true, he never would have won Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.  

It was revealed in Mrs. Clinton’s emails how she essentially holds most of America in contempt. It was obvious in how she got it wrong in her campaign slogan “I’m With Her”. Perhaps she should have put a little more thought into how that sounded and come up with “She’s With Us”. Her narcissism simply would never have allowed her to have that clarity of vision, ever.

I’ve also seen that he clearly is not a globalist and is invested in protecting American jobs and American workers. I highly approve of his picks for his cabinet. He is surrounding himself with people who know how to make business work for America and American workers. He’s also picking people who know how to run the military and understand what the purpose of the military is for, to be unencumbered by political correctness and to prosecute military action against our enemies without rules of engagement that prevent us from being successful in a defined military mission in which we can define the enemy and define success of the mission, instead of mucking about with murky goals and vague definitions of success. the majority of his selections for his cabinet and advisors are not professional politicians.

As is often the case, our politicians, as well as our citizens, embrace an ideal without understanding what the potential outcome may be of embracing that ideal. So it is with Globalism. I was asked not too long ago; when I thought that America began to go off the right track. I believe that it was with the election of George H.W. Bush who became president after Ronald Reagan. He was our first globalist president and every president elected has been a globalist whether Republican or Democrat. Globalism is going to lead to a totalitarian one world government run by the United Nations and until recent developments in the world, this appeared to be inevitable.

With the exit of Britain from the European Union and the possibility of other member nations exiting, such as Italy, in view of the disastrous results of events in Belgium, France and Germany as a result of their favoring Muslims terrorizing their citizens, the future of the E.U. is very much in question. I believe that nations serve the interests of their citizens best as individual nation states, not as collectivist experiments. It was this sentiment that helped elect Donald Trump and is a rejection of globalist’s agendas of free movement between countries.

As with any political ideology or movement, Globalism isn’t totally evil, nor are sovereign nation-states with their own ideologies and agendas who exist independently from each other pursuing their own agendas and destinies. Humans tend to be all or none in their thinking. They have difficulty discerning what is worth keeping and what is worth rejecting and have difficulty thinking critically and dispassionately. Mr. Trump seems to want to strike a balance between these dynamics.

What was the alternative? My opinion is that the alternative, to elect Mrs. Clinton, was to elect someone who is either so incompetent that she doesn’t understand the importance of keeping government classified information safe or she is so arrogant she believed that the rules of information protection didn’t apply to her. I think the latter is probably more true.

As Secretary of State, her tenure was a colossal failure. Her policies led to massive takeovers by Islamic radicals and Islamic terrorists of a number of Middle Eastern countries, and turned a blind eye and deaf ear to our Ambassador and embassy staff in Benghazi which led to their deaths. Then she lied to the American people about what happened.

She pushed for the admittance of undocumented Middle Eastern refugees, along with came a lot of Isis terrorists. When terrorist acts were committed by Muslims, she couldn’t even bear to say the words “Islamic terrorism”. Failure to diagnose is the surest way to lose our country.

She continued to advocate allowing illegal aliens from other countries to enter our country. Even if they committed heinous crimes such as child sexual assault, rape or murder, she defended their presence and was against deportation. Perhaps this is one of the most serious of her failings as someone to be entrusted with power in our government. Consider the reality of illegal aliens in America. They live in a state of poverty that our own people do not even know. They are exploited by the very people who advocate their illegal entry to our country by being employed in menial service jobs and paid far below what they would be paid for the same kind of work if they were U.S. citizens. They have no education, no skills and nothing to contribute to our country except to be exploited for their unskilled physical labor. Yet at the same time we are told that we should provide them welfare benefits and access to our system when we have other people who are applying for legal immigration to our country who have education and skills and who want to assimilate here into our culture, but they have to wait in long lines to come here legally. Where is the morality in that? It does serve the purpose of the globalists who want to cede our sovereignty to a one world government. At what expense? To reduce the entire country to a unified miserable standard of living much like what the people of the Soviet Union experienced? Is that the price of Globalism?

All the while, Hillary Clinton and her supporters accuse everyone who did not support her philosophy, world view and politics as intolerant and “haters” But it seems to me they are the most intolerant of all and most hateful of all. Personally, I can accept that people don’t agree with my opinions and world view, but rather than to label them as a “basketful of deplorables” as Mrs. Clinton herself did of those who supported Mr. Trump, I simply don’t agree with them. I can respect their views, but that is not true of how they feel about people who are like minded with my opinions.

The Democrat party’s biggest failure of all is to be able to look at why they lost the presidential election. Yes, we did learn the truth behind their lies when all of the emails of Mrs. Clinton’s server were revealed along with the Democratic National Committee and various party leaders in the government and in the party organization’s emails. It was not a very pretty picture on how they conducted their campaigns. If anyone stole an election, it was Mrs. Clinton and the DNC stealing the election in the primaries from Bernie Sanders. 

They cannot seem to reflect upon themselves and why over the last 8 years, they have lost the House of Representatives, the Senate, and two thirds of the states’ governorship and legislatures. Instead they want to blame it all on Mr. Trump, and the Russians who they believe exposed their corruption. Perhaps the Russians did expose their emails, but beyond that, they take no interest in understanding and learning why their ideologies are failing with the American people in larger numbers as time goes by. Mrs. Clinton, Democrats, aside from the northeast and the west coast, we are just not that into you. Rather than demonizing us, reflect upon your selves.

The people elected Mr. Trump because they are tired of professional politicians and tired of business as usual in Washington. Our government was meant to be run by citizens who serve and then go back to private life, not professional politicians. We are tired of voting for people who say they will do one thing and then do the opposite of what they were elected to accomplish. We are tired of Democrats and we are tired of Republicans who act like Democrats when it comes time to execute their duties as elected officials. That is why Donald Trump was elected. I hope he accomplishes what he sets out to do.  Whether he can or will do what he says he wants to accomplish, Time will tell.


  1. I am blown away that you as a trans woman can support Ted Cruz? What do you think Trump will do when state legislators start to pass laws like HB2 on a daily basis? Please help me understand your rationale in supporting candidates that think you are an abomination?

    1. Edy, Thanks for commenting on my blog, I respect your comment but was unable to put my reply in this space due to length constrictions. Please see my response as a separate blog entry dated December 21st above this blog article....

  2. Eddy. How do you support your position that President Elect Trump, (and or his supporters), think you are an abomination? Can you read his mind? Did you know that the woman who is singing at his inauguration has a sister who is TG? Did you know that he support the participation of a TG in his Miss Universe contest.
    Personally I do not see you, (or brainless sycophants like you), to be an abomination....just a serious and noisy pain is the arse.

    As to Lauren's post, HERE! HERE!
