Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Pence Becomes A Jawboning Flak-Catcher

I’m getting tired of a flak-catching Mike Pence stating the most self-serving, least  abusive of liberals, side of any event coming from congress. On the Rush Limbaugh radio program Tuesday, the VP was introduced by Limbaugh and went directly into a planned and practiced speech about how great the new budget bill is and how it increases, on a bipartisan basis, defense spending, yada, yada. But when Limbaugh asked him a question about Trump’s wall not being funded by the bill, while immigrant resettlement, the EPA and Obamacare were still in the budget, the VP just fell back to his script and didn’t answer Rush’s question.

Defense spending is critically important and I praise the Trump administration for getting this sticking point included in the proposed budget and pushed through past Democrat opposition, but the wall and other foundation elements of Trump’s agenda must also get some funding so they can get started now and not wait four or five more months.

I want anger from the VP in the face of Republican/Trump defeat with the latest spending bill coming from Congress. I want a government shut-down, now, not in September, and I want Trump demanding that every American call their legislators, especially if those legislators are Democrats, and demand that they give Trump the money for the wall and get Immigrant, EPA, planned parenthood and Obamacare funding removed from the budget.

I can understand not winning every battle, but Trump lost in every category with this latest bill, and the President should be showing a little anger with Republican legislators for the shellacking they got. I, one of President Trump’s most dedicated supporters, hate to add to his problems, but time is passing and the electorally defeated Democrats are gaining power and expanding their anti-American policies with this latest bill.

Trump has been a wonder the last 100 days, and I don’t want him to lose the positive edge he expresses in the rallies he occasionally conducts, but I want him up a fighting all the time, not just during rallies. Pelosi and Schumer are both happy and joyful with the spending bill, and their joy saddens me and all thinking Americans, so Trump needs to get busy and make more positive things happen with the Continuing Resolution congress is preparing, and get his policies back on track.

Democrats are losers at election time, but they win every time in Washington’s big-government swamp. This trend must end now and not be kicked further down the road to September. The Democrat socialists have the momentum, and President Trump is the only one who can bring their stampede to a halt.
