I had made a pledge to eschew politics for now. It lasted just a few weeks. And to think that today I’m using a sport’s theme astounds even me. But — here I go.
I have only been to one Big League Ballgame. It was in Detroit back in the day when it was a great city. I was given a free ticket to a Tigers’ game, so why not go? Oh, it was so much fun. Shocked, I found I was caught up in the emotional excitement and found myself shouting for the home team.
To me, Donald Trump was a big, bad businessman I had heard about from time to time, but reading “The Art of the Deal” wasn’t big on my list, and, as a compulsive Gambler, I stay away from Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Heck, I don’t even play Bingo. Needless to say, I don’t hang out with the Trump kind of crowd.
This election season rolled around and I heard all the hoopla about Trump. Fed up with “politics as usual” I heard sound bytes about him but never really took the time to listen to what he had to say. I just knew I agreed with him on building the fence and securing the border.
I read some articles and followed some debates. Trump impressed me but Cruz would have been OK, too, although I was leaning towards Trump, much to some of my children’s horror. They don’t have to agree with me, nor I with them.
Two weeks ago I decided to finally listen and pay attention to a couple of Trump’s rallies. I was so impressed with the way he conducted himself and the people he gave a chance to speak, particularly the ones from the Remembrance Project whose loved ones had been brutalized and killed by illegal aliens. Everyone was in tears, including me.
When he requested the media to pan the cameras to show the size of the crowd, and they absolutely refused, was very telling. They do try to stack the deck if they think they can get away with it.
I was also impressed with the way he spoke to the American people as “we”, never “I”, especially when he used the theme “Making America Great Again.” WE will do it together.
The reaction of the Beltway gaggle to Trump and his followers shows how out-of-touch both parties are to the regular Americans in the Heartland. The Democrats are totally worthless, and the Republicans, for the most part, aren’t any better, so insulting to their own base.
Then came Donald Trump, speaking in Hartford, Connecticut at a Townhall. Asked to speak as a fill-in at almost the last minute, he was upbeat and funny, then he ended the meeting, boldly saying:
“THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GET IT. THEY’RE NOT STUPID. THEY ARE SMART, REALLY SMART, AND THEY SEE THE TRUTH. DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE.”
I was suddenly watching a Home Run with the bases loaded, and I was back cheering a Major League team again. My heart leaped, my spine straightened, and my lungs filled with fresh air. I said to my husband, “That’s the moment Trump won the election. All he needs to do is repeat his love for and trust in the people that way and no one can beat him.”
So, “Take THAT Barack Obama, Slimy Harry and Nancy Pelosi, Josh Earnest and all you other liars. Take THAT Hillary Clinton and John Kerry in the State and Loretta Lynch in the Justice Department.Take THAT all you Rinos who have disgraced yourselves and called us names. Take THAT Charlie Rose, Chris Matthews, and other members of the lame stream media who think you’re so much better than the American people. Stop what you are doing.
There is more than enough blame to go around for causing the peril we live in. The race hustlers and traitors abound. It is still beyond me why they don’t see their OWN danger.
I believe more than ever that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God who loves this land, raises up men for the times each generation faces. We have to recognize them when our time comes. The George Washingtons, the heroes may not be who we expect them to be.
God Bless America. • (960 views)
