USA – -(Ammoland.com)- It was obvious to those who voted for President Trump (POTUS) that our country was on a precipice. Republicans who professed to understand the problem – after Mr Trump defined the needs of our republic – appeared to lack the strength of will to be able to carry out the new, necessary agenda.
Now we know its not strength which they lack really, but truth.
There are no patriots in Washington, D.C. Anymore. We, the First, Second, and Tenth Amendment people, are the only ones left standing firm.
Because of the Constitutionalist philosophy that we see in President Trump's recent judicial appointment, we believe that he backed the Bill of Rights away from the cliff. And the 1st, 2nd, & 10th Amendments now have a better chance of survival.
However, one justice on the Supreme Court is just a finger in the dyke, so we're hoping for another appointment to the bench.
Aside from the victories due to the sheer personal power of Mr. Trump, We The People have been totally abandoned by our party and all of its professed patriots. There is a greater problem than just hatred of this President – there is a willingness in Congress, by both parties, to oversee the destruction of our country.
President Trump, during his speech in Poland on July 6, 2017 said;
“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?”
Apparently our elected officials, even Republicans, do not have the spine to protect our country, but they certainly have the will to destroy it.
The GOP, and John McCain in particular, could not or would not, repeal and replace our failing medical care system, as Mr. Trump campaigned on. And now, the GOP is threatening to ‘Fix Obamacare‘ and return it to us, more expensive than before.
Additionally, the GOP, instead of dealing with the realities of daily life at the grass roots level, they spent much time and energy hog tying President Trump's ability to deal freely and effectively with potentially harmful international problems by passing a bill which is ratcheting up Russian angst.
Just before Congress left for vacation, the Senate found time to block and prevent the POTUS from making any recess appointments, though they are claiming that they are actually working.
This dirty trick needed to be agreed to by every Senator, Democrats and Republicans unanimously. The support of this situation, by the GOP Senate, is a DISGRACE. The Senate intentionally HINDERED the functions of the President.
Senator Cruz, who campaigned to President, hooked up with our gun hating enemy, Senator Charles Schumer, to block any chance that might further the people's agenda. Hopefully, Senator Cruz's backstabbing of POTUS, will be remember in Texas for his traitorous behavior.
This filthy Bipartisan Senatorial trick shows, these authors, that there was possibly never an intent to pass the Repeal & Replace by the core Senate once Mr. Trump was elected. The GOP bitched and moaned for seven years and had nothing, not even notes, prepared. Additionally, besides the Democratic Party's procedural maneuvers, stalls, games, and rhetoric, the GOP Senate are doing the same to President Trump.
Now, during the Summer Recess, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell places the blame on the President. Holy crap! And when they return, if there were to be a tax bill, we can only assume that the bill will be designed to rescue the sensibilities of Congress, and not serve a growth bill that the country needs, or POTUS requested.
When did the Republican allies abandon Freedom? When did the Democrats abandon America? There are many parts to these questions. Some of it is just plain HATRED of Donald Trump. Some of it is the Democrats DISBELIEF of their loss. Some of it is the LACK of Civic Education in school.
Some of it is just plain HATRED for America. And some of is BIG MONEY for the creation of a Global World Government.
We patriots Thank You, Mr. President, for giving us your fighting spirit, and still with a smile, dealing which the current bucket of Congressional scum.
We will do what we can on the ground, and we have your six.
We are standing back from the precipice, at this moment. We are harshly judging the men, women, critters that we chose to serve the Union. May we by judged less harshly by the choices which we made.
