The Dichotomy of Voting for President Trump

My previous post was November 18, 2019. I purposely waited to write another post until after President Trump was acquitted from his impeachment.  Although that has not yet happened it seems as inevitable as the sun rising.

As my previous post predicted, the Congress would impeach President Trump on hyperbolic charges and the Senate would acquit without considering evidence.  It seems the Democrats in Congress made it easy for the Senate by not having any real verifiable evidence.  Spare me the over-the-top diatribe that evidence existed.

There were no eye witnesses.  There was no corroborating evidence beyond the shadow of a doubt.  The whistleblower remained under wraps due to credibility issues. Do I believe President Trump tried to gain a political advantage by using money as a negotiating ploy?  Yep.  Did I see any evidence proving it?  Nope. 

Has every other president used similar tactics in the past?  Yep. Does it make what President Trump did right? Nope.

As I mentioned before.  The bottom line is President Trump did not act appropriately but nothing he did rose to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.  The Democrats despise him so much that they allow themselves to be the foils once again by not ensuring absolute proof existed before launching an impeachment trial.  The press hates President Trump even more and continually play the fools by jumping to conclusions and not having the fabled three sources before publishing negative stories about him.

The bottom line is the Democrats in Congress led an unfair impeachment inquiry and never allowed the opposition a legitimate chance to refute any of the allegations.  The Republicans in the Senate returned the favor.  Other than members of the mainstream media and the far left (basically the same thing) is anyone surprised by this outcome?

Democrats get what they wanted by addling an asterisk to President Trump’s name for the history books and the president gets his acquittal.  They are happy while the rest of us are miserable and wasted roughly four months on stupidity when our leaders should have been working to improve our nation.

President Trump is not my ideal choice to be the president of the United States.  I wish there were some statesperson out there who can show the idiots in Washington, DC what a real president acts and sounds like. There isn’t such a man or woman.  They are all despicable excuses for human beings.

Americans are left to choose the lesser of two evils.  And, given that choice, they will always choose the person that most resembles what they find important.  For me, I love President Trump’s Supreme Court nominations.  I like his policies on immigration. I like the fact he signed a new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada. I like the First Step act that reforms the federal prison system.  I am excited by the Second Step act that will focus on easing employment barriers for formerly incarcerated people. This legislation would feature a $88 million funding request for prisoner social reentry programs.

From a purely nationalist perspective I like the fact he forced NATO countries to pay an additional $69 billion versus the US being burdened with that cost. I like that he is not a doormat to foreign leaders and responds quickly with force when required..  And, yes, I like the fact he kills terrorists who threaten us.

I do not like him or like the way he acts but I despise the media and the elitists who occupy the swamp more.  He’s the lesser of two evils.

The Trump supporters will never abandon him regardless of what inappropriate behavior he displays.  The Trump detractors will never give him any credit regardless of what he accomplishes. Those of us in the middle – the ones who will decide the next president – are looking for an alternative.

From my perspective, the Democrats have a more underwhelming lineup than T-Ballers going up against a high school baseball team. There is no one in that group of lying misfits that can convince me to not cast a vote for President Trump.

He does not fit my ideal of who a president should be or how a president should act.  But, so far, for me he’s gotten the job done on those issues that matter to me.  And that is the dichotomy of President Trump.  You wish thee was someone better to vote for but at least he is getting something done.
