Letter to the Editor
Contrary to the opinions and hopes of the editors of the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine, the Associated Press, the Huffington Post, The Hill, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Hollywood deviants, Democrats, and many Republicans, Donald Trump is not failing. He is doing what he promised as a candidate.
Most of what the people associated with these organizations espouse is nothing less than lies, fake news, and anti-American propaganda. There is one lie, and it is huge, that they will not acknowledge. That lie is the one that government is responsible for whatever success accrues to those seeking their share of the American Dream.
Government has had little to do with the economic success that has derived from the efforts of free men and women doing their best to do better than their parents did. At every turn, government provides more interference to that pursuit than encouragement. It has not always been so.
The task of ending personal freedom and substituting government dependence lies solely and squarely with the Political Class. Their efforts to obtain and retain control of government is built around the idea that without them, success is not possible. The upside down America in which we live did not happen because citizens ignore our founding principles. The turmoil was created and is sustained by elected, double-tongued politicians proclaiming their desire to work for the people.
Their idea of working for the people is giving people what they think they want. The core belief they promote has broad appeal. Welfare for individuals or special favors for corporations and the wealthy are provided by the politicians. There is however, no such thing as a free lunch. Indeed, there is nothing that is truly free To take from one citizen in order to give to another citizen is not moral. It is a crime.
Criminals should go to prison. Politicians are con artists robbing people of their dignity and belief in right and wrong. Their claim to be working for us would be laughable if it were not so serious. No organization, group, or nation can long endure such corruption.
Donald Trump, intentionally or unintentionally, has exposed the Political Class for the arrogant elitists that they really are. Individually, there are exceptions to this, but, collectively, elitism runs deep inside the heart and soul of the PC.
The millionaire Trump does not suffer from the lack of character that defines politicians. He is an egotist. He can be arrogant. But these character traits are not derived from lies, deception, and disregard for the rules.
In the business world, Trump has had to answer for the bottom line, the profit or loss associated with business activity. He is learning the hard way what many of us have known for some time. The politician has loyalty only to himself and his party. For them, truth, justice, and the American Way mean nothing. For them, rules are to be ignored, twisted, or made to benefit themselves and their special interests.
