Almost half of my family and many of my good friends can’t stand Donald Trump. Others are so consumed with a deep seated hate that their ability to see reality is obscured. For the past three years, Trump has been subjected to a non-stop, 24 hour/day smear campaign. He has been called: traitor, racist, fascist, homophobic, misogynistic, scumbag, sleazy, war monger, liar, worst President ever, and often accused of being mentally unstable. Some have called him a Nazi, and compared him to Hitler. A significant number of people don’t like his tone, others don’t like his character. The negative publicity includes the deliberate withholding and outright distortion of news that would favor Trump…so it’s no wonder that many hate him. The recent Impeachment vote by the House of Representatives was nothing more than a well orchestrated attempt to smear President Trump. Democrats knew from the beginning that there was no evidence of a High Crime or Misdemeanor. They invented non-criminal charges in an unfair rush to impeach. The Trump haters ignore this disgraceful Congressional abuse of power because their hate overcomes what is an obvious attempt to smear.

Hate has succeeded in blinding many people from what could be the greatest political scandal in the history of our country. The Muller investigation, coupled with the Inspector General’s investigation, clearly show that Donald Trump has been a victim of a deep state, secret attempt to overthrow his Presidency. If it can happen to Trump, it can happen to anyone.

The haters are blind to Trump’s positive impact on economic prosperity that has resulted in more jobs available than workers to fill them; the haters are blind to the threat of Socialism that has infected the Democratic Party; and, worst of all, the haters are blind to the many domestic threats that are right before their eyes: Threats to the Right of Due Process, the Right of Free Speech, and the Right to Bear Arms; Threats to pack the Supreme Court and Abolish the Electoral College; Support for Open Borders and Sanctuary Cities; Promises of full benefits and rights for “Illegal “Immigrants”; and Monstrous tax and spend proposals that would destroy the “American Dream”.

The haters are so focused on defeating Trump, that they are blind to the freedom destroying strategies that are the bait and switch deceptions of Socialism. Corrupt politicians offer voters the delicious temptation of wonderful benefits that others will pay for. These politicians love the effectiveness of hate. Especially when the haters ignore the fact that Trump is term-limited. Trump Haters need to wake up and realize that Socialism has no term limits! This 2020 Presidential election will determine the future of our free Republic. It is truly a choice between Freedom, and Government-dictated Socialism. 

I often hear that Barack Obama was “Presidential” compared to Trump. Obama certainly was a gifted speaker, and he was a gifted liar. Obama weaponized the IRS, the EPA, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Labor Department,  the Justice Department, and other government agencies against his political opponents. Apparently it doesn’t matter that Obama’s policies were economically destructive. He almost doubled the national debt with uncontrolled Socialist spending. Not one single Obama policy during his eight years in office was intended to improve economic prosperity. Apparently it doesn’t matter when it comes to Obama’s foreign policy. His foreign policy was apologetic, and ambivalent towards America. He was responsible for the growth of ISIS when he unwisely pulled our troops out of Iraq. He even called ISIS a “JV Team.” Obama was responsible for millions of muslim refugees that fled the Syrian civil war and the terror of ISIS. He failed to enforce his own “RED LINE” after Syria used chemical weapons against its people. Obama failed to confront Russia when it “annexed” Crimea. Apparently he couldn’t be bothered because, as he told Mitt Romney, he never considered that Russia was a threat. He was focusing on signing an agreement with terrorists to achieve peace. He negotiated an appeasement treaty with Iran without Senate approval. During the negotiations, Iranians were chanting,”Death to America” every day. Obama traded five treacherous Taliban terrorists for one American deserter, claiming he didn’t want to leave a single soldier behind. At the same time, he ignored a US Marine held prisoner in Mexico who mistakenly took a wrong turn. Obama wasn’t concerned about terrorists and Marines. Instead, he claimed that Climate Change was the greatest threat facing America, and signed the non-binding “Paris climate accord” without Senate approval.

The Washington Post keeps a running tabulation of Donald Trump’s “lies’, like exaggerating the size of the crowd at his inauguration. But the Post doesn’t measure the cost of political lies, and does not consider the difference between an exaggeration and a lie. For example: Obama could qualify as the greatest liar of all time when he created the Affordable Care Act [ObamaCare]…i.e.- He calmed anyone concerned by promising “You can keep your doctor, you can keep your health insurance plan, you will receive a $2,500/yr reduction in your health insurance premiums, and the plan won’t add one dime to the deficit.” How “Presidential”…

The national news media turned a “blind eye” time after time. Maybe they were afraid of being accused of racism. Who cares about bad policy when you are so “Presidential”. Policy doesn’t matter to the Trump Haters, and this allows them to ignore the difference  between economic incompetence and economic prosperity.
