Letter To The President
— Open Blogger

I have just done something I have never done before. I have written a letter to the president. Not even in the days of 9/11 have I felt so moved to do this. It's just that with every day there's a new yelly, shouty, Soros-funded attack that I'm afraid President Trump will be tempted to cave in. I think he needs to be encouraged not to do this. As Rush points out, he really doesn't have any support, not from the opposition party, not from the media, not from academia, not even from elements in his own party, nobody except from those of us who voted for him, and perhaps those of you who did not vote for him, but do not want to see him destroyed by a howling mob of imbeciles. So I encourage all of you to go to this link, bring up the e-mail form, and write an encouraging note to the president. Here is what I told him:

Mr. President--

Ever since your inauguration, there has been nothing but hysterical, dialed-up-to-11 outrage coming at you from the Democrats, the media, and even elements in the Republican Party. George Soros is undoubtedly bankrolling some of this ginned up outrage. Even so, I have never seen anything like this before in my life. I love it that you are apparently that big a threat to the status quo. And the last thing America needs right now is a go-along-to-get-along status quo politician.

Mr. President, please stay the course. Please do not go wobbly on us.

It's probably going to get worse before it gets better, but I think you know this. Please, please PLEASE do not back down from any of your proposals or nominations. If you do, your enemies will only smell blood in the water and come at you even harder. Plus, you'll only discourage those of us who want to support you.

This is no "well, we disagree on policy" dispute. They want to destroy your presidency and they want to destroy you personally. If you did not know this when you started your campaign, you probably know it now.

Mr. President, I know you're a fighter. I voted for you because I could see you were a fighter. But now you're in the fight of your life. The attacks are coming at you fresh and new every day. Please do not allow yourself to think that if you give in to their demands, you will avoid conflict. This is a lie, and I'm sure you know this.

Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President. Do not let the bastards grind you down.

My wife and I pray for daily.

May God give you strength and may God grant you victory. Because if you win, America wins. If you lose, we all lose.

Thank you

15 I did not support him in the primary and I did not vote for him.  But he has truly surprised me.  I have like everything he has done so far.  I am a full supporter now.  I just wish the RINOs and DIABLO traitors would fall in.

I think Trump knows if he caved early he would never get anything ever.  That said, good letter.

The problem, of course, is not the dems or the media, its the republican pussies in congress.  These bastards can't even kill obamacare, another hill they won't die on.

18 I doubt Trump will go wobbly.

He's not a politician striving for re-election or graft.

He's just doing what he thinks needs to be done.

Posted by: davidt at January 31, 2017 06:57 AM (XoldI)

19 "Was told that Ace was up. I'm a little disappointed." OM often has better ledes. Trump is losing in short-term polling but I expect this to rebound as D obstruction fails. e.g., Within a week the travel ban EO will be upheld by courts. FFS, the NYT writes today that Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel signed off on its legality but Yates overruled because she didn't like Trump's motives in issuing it. Trump may be playing a long game if he can get the Saudis on board with a ME sanctuary land plan for the refugees.

Posted by: Ignoramus at January 31, 2017 06:57 AM (SIY7D)

20 I think my biggest fear regarding Trump is people will get so tired of the constant outrage and screaming, they will dump Trump just to get some peace and quiet. People usually react one of two ways, they either double down and dig their heels in or fold because it's easier. The Left has shot their wad so early, that I'm somewhat optimistic they have nowhere left to go. On the way to work I was listening to NPR, it was almost like the day after 9/11 with it's reporting and tone.

21 I think now that POTUS is hip deep in the vile swamp, and understands up close and personal what a sewer it is - his resolve to give the govt. back to the people is stronger than ever. That said, I'm writing him today.

24 If they cancel the Oscars then we'll never see the moving and heartfelt tribute to all those (liberal) artists that passed away in 2016? How will they be remembered? How, how I ask you, will their legacy be anything but forever tainted.

30 Great letter, OM! My only quibble is the "Soros" mention at the beginning. He is not some super-villain svengali, just a billionaire who throws a lot of money around, and to constantly blame him for everything the left does just has a whiff of conspiracy-thinking. Sure, he funds stuff, but the "opposition" is far bigger than him.

Yeah.  Paul Ryan's guests at the 2016 State of the Union speech included representatives from the Little Sisters of the Poor.  Now we're getting "it'll take two years" bleating from Congress.  Time to put up, Mr. Speaker, unless it serves your purpose to use nuns as stage props.

37 I'm going to remind him of that scene in "Airplane" when Leslie Nielson opens the cockpit door and calmly says, "I just want to say good luck, we're all counting on you.", and he leaves.

And then alarms go off, the plane is violently shaking and there's screams and noise and panic.... and he opens the door and serenely says the same exact thing.....

We are officially on the second take.....

38 A related suggestion, but opposite, from the earlier thread.

If you are sick of all the local news coverage of these protests, call/ email your local tv station and complain. Tell them they do not represent you or your family, and their focus on these idiots has caused you to turn off their station, and you will not watch them until they become unbiased.

Conversely, if you really want to harm them, note the advertisers on your local news. Then write them and say that you feel your local news is encouraging these protestors and are too political. Since they advertise on the station, they are encouraging that. Consequently, you will no longer buy their products or patronize their business until they stop advertising with that station.

We have a hell hole just like any shit hole anywhere. still we have to hold tight. i hope that He remains strong and I also hope the rule of law prevails for all citizens sake as They are too stupid to realize how fortunate we were. and i hope He actually rmeains within the rule of law because that is ALL we have between us and the freaks take over. i hope everything that is done is to [protect us from being a crash and burn , I would like to know what those "betters" think they will end up with? we need to also help fight. FGS quit financially supporting these assholes! so we do without for a bit, quit giving them money to Fund our own demise. please.

I do put at least some blame on Trump also, right off the bat he said he wanted to keep key parts f ObamaCare in place, much of which is WHY Obamacare is so damn expensive. But the Republicans will face far more hell at he polls if they don;t repeal ObamaCare then whatever votes they lose from Medicaid parasites that were never going to vote GOP in a million years.

I did add that the Trump admin should engage in full lawfare against the malfeasance and treason inherent in the democong and the gope trash (although I did use nicer tems than that).

I specified the use of criminal charges wherever valid

94 I have a feeling Trump lives for this shit. The constant attacks on him at his rallies by would be rioters seemed to fuel his resolve even more. I agree with Rush in that Trump is not a political animal and he appears to be fiercely loyal to those who have been his biggest advocates during the election, namely the Angel Moms. Whenever he talks about the forgotten man I always feel he's referring to those whose lives were destroyed by illegals in particular.

98 20 I think my biggest fear regarding Trump is people will get so tired of the constant outrage and screaming, they will dump Trump just to get some peace and quiet. People usually react one of two ways, they either double down and dig their heels in or fold because it's easier. The Left has shot their wad so early, that I'm somewhat optimistic they have nowhere left to go. On the way to work I was listening to NPR, it was almost like the day after 9/11 with it's reporting and tone. Posted by: Maritime at January 31, 2017 11:57 AM (lzxL6) I think you're right, and I think that result comes down to how easy it is to spin the tone of your message as being positive. Bush had a pretty hard sell. Right after 9/11, most of the country agreed that we needed to go over there and hit them before they hit us again. But by 2004 and 2006, the immediate shock of 9/11 was gone. Staying in Iraq and nationbuilding was the right thing to do (both morally and strategically), but it's a hard sell. To do it right will cost billions of dollars and many american lives (which the MSM reminded us about daily). The base of their message was "it's just not worth it" they could take the easy path. And because it was the easy one, the people without strong convictions followed. It's different now. Trump=Hitler is the entirety of their argument. They're offering no appeal to Trump's supporters or people on the fringe. A lot of people think "well, maybe it is a good idea to pause refugee program, when there are clearly a lot of bad people over there that I don't think I want in my neighborhood." I think the default position of most people is to support Trump in a lot of these things. So when the left comes in and says "you're literally a Nazi for feeling this way" then they're much more likely to get someone to stiffen up and say "well that's bullshit" than to get them to buckle. The left has to make the nuanced, difficult, case. Not Trump. And they're not capable of doing that because of their irrational outrage.

103 NPR is interesting to listen to. Obviously they are biased but they will "fact check" the left occasionally to project an image of balance. (This morning it was of a muzzie Congressman from Indianapolis.) Ah yes, Andre Carson. Inherited his Congressional seat when his grandma died. On March 20, 2010, Carson told reporters that health care protesters outside the Capitol hurled racial slurs at fellow Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) member Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia. Carson came off the House floor and told reporters his story about health care protesters hurling racial slurs during their walk from the Cannon House Office Building to the chambers. Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for any proof of these accusations. Although audio and video recordings of the protest have been posted online, no proof of the racial slurs has yet been provided, and the reward remains unclaimed. On August 28, 2011, Carson told a gathering of supporters when referring to the Tea Party movement "This is the effort that we're seeing of Jim Crow", Carson said. "Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me... hanging on a tree." Carson declined calls to resign, reaffirming, "I stand on the truth of what I spoke", and clarified that his comments were directed at certain tea party leaders and not the tea party as a whole.

It's going to be a bumpy night watching all that, sigh. Never try to get between Hollywood and a chance to pat themselves on the back.

130 38 A related suggestion, but opposite, from the earlier thread. If you are sick of all the local news coverage of these protests, call/ email your local tv station and complain. Tell them they do not represent you or your family, and their focus on these idiots has caused you to turn off their station, and you will not watch them until they become unbiased. Conversely, if you really want to harm them, note the advertisers on your local news. Then write them and say that you feel your local news is encouraging these protestors and are too political. Since they advertise on the station, they are encouraging that. Consequently, you will no longer buy their products or patronize their business until they stop advertising with that station. Posted by: shibumi, who requires a cute kitty story stat! at January 31, 2017 12:01 PM (J5mC3) ================ This-writing the advertisers on local stations-is an excellent idea. Our local stations in Michigan are very slanted-especially the NBC station, and even though I don't watch them for that reason, their sponsors should know. As for the letter to President Trump, I did that yesterday! I felt compelled to do it. He is strong and a fighter, but even strong fighters might need to know they are appreciated. Concerning the "bad roll out" ( which is how I have heard it described) of the immigration policy, I personally do not see President Trump as a person who does not learn from his mistakes. He is learning constantly and improving constantly and , I hope, will continue doing so. Another thing we can do, though, is figuring out how to do better at primaring the treacherous RINOs.

133 So the whole thing about the temporary travel ban for aliens residing in Sudan, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, and others is that we need time to tighten up our visa requirements for travelers from those countries before they can enter the United States, right?

Didn't Barry kill American citizens in Yemen with a drone strike?

Not that there's a direct connection between the two facts, mind, it's just that I can't quite see the point of the protests.

134 I've worked in an executive role. If nothing else it trains you to dismiss criticisms, if they don't represent truly informed opinions or are inconsistent with your view of human nature. That often comes off as arrogant to the critics who doesn't have all the information you do. But they don't realize that you're doing things that you've already done, and you know how they will work out. To them it all looks like just another experiment, like so many of their which have failed in the past. In my last position we worked on a turnaround company. It was sort of like a startup, but with decent funding, and 900 employees. Every step we took we were told that it wouldn't achieve the desired outcome. But we went ahead anyway, knowing we were right, and booked success after success after success. In the meantime we did our best to educate those who were open to new ideas but simply ignored (or removed) those who made it clear that they weren't. Trump doesn't care about press approval. He knows the press argue that he should take a position of weakness. And that's somehting he can never abide. He has decades of experience in the solitude of leadership. And it shows. So I'd bet that he's less likely to go soft than any other President in living memory. I confess I didn't think he would be this good. But I'm thrilled to admit I was wrong. Tom

Outside of social media and MFM, how many people do you know who are PERSONALLY impacted by these protests?

Seems to me that the ones being impacted are people traveling and they are not being impacted in a good way.

RE: things like BLM and Ferguson. Were the businesses impacted in a positive way? No. They were burned down. Do you think those business owners were sympathetic? Are they taking part in these demonstrations?

The media is enjoying this. But is it really impacting people personally? If yes, it is impacting them in a negative or positive way?

181 Outside of social media and MFM, how many people do you know who are PERSONALLY impacted by these protests? I don't know anyone they are persuading to think their way, but it is solidifying opposition in the left where they might start getting squishy or thinking differently. It also is annoying apolitical people very strongly. They're sick of the crap, furious at roads being blocked, disgusted by the behavior of marches, getting off social media because they're tired of the crap, etc. So there's not much net positive going on for the left.

Whatever the shortcomings of people like Hubert Humphrey were, they were unapologetically Americans. What has happened is that the radicals of the 60's have engaged in the long march through the institutions, and especially the academic institutions, thereby infesting every corner of the system.

213 Trump doesn't care about press approval. He knows the press argue that he should take a position of weakness. And that's somehting he can never abide. He has decades of experience in the solitude of leadership. And it shows. So I'd bet that he's less likely to go soft than any other President in living memory.

I confess I didn't think he would be this good. But I'm thrilled to admit I was wrong.

The news media was just as bad, only there was no Internet so we didn't know it.  LBJ's "Great Society" had not yet destroyed black family life so there wasn't as much general decline in the population. What most of us worried about was work and the draft.

257 "We were a lot more divided from 1968 to 1974." I was a very young NY Daily News paperboy from 1968 to 1972 and I have a pretty good memory. (The News was the conservative NYC rag back then, the Post was an afternoon commie rag run by Dorothy Schiff until Murdoch bought it in 1976). I saw the division reflected in the stories every day. A lot of it was driven by Vietnam, which was actually a big deal at the time. It forced people to join tribes and to wear their colors openly. You think the election of 2016 was divisive. Try 1968.

Look at how many people are out there yelling, it must mean something!" And we get where we are today where even people here are all "ooh it was the wrong thing to do, Iraq was harmless, we should have stayed home, Bush sucks!!!" That's the end goal: they eventually got to President Bush even at wartime. The American people aren't very well informed and are easily swayed. All the left has to do is keep up the momentum long enough.

308 >>> A related suggestion, but opposite, from the earlier thread. If you are sick of all the local news coverage of these protests, call/ email your local tv station and complain. Tell them they do not represent you or your family, and their focus on these idiots has caused you to turn off their station, and you will not watch them until they become unbiased. Conversely, if you really want to harm them, note the advertisers on your local news. Then write them and say that you feel your local news is encouraging these protestors and are too political. Since they advertise on the station, they are encouraging that. Consequently, you will no longer buy their products or patronize their business until they stop advertising with that station. Posted by: shibumi, who requires a cute kitty story stat! at January 31, 2017 12:01 PM (J5mC3) I kinda want to do this, but with the local refugee reports the SLC news has on every night. Utah has been taking in swarms of them, and the LDS church started a campaign for serving refugees call #IWasAStranger. So it is all over the news here. https://www.lds.org/refugees?lang=eng Which are lovely efforts, I have no problem if people want to assist others in this way out of the goodness of their hearts. I DO have a problem when the news reports and people around me imply that if you object in any way to refugees coming in without proper vetting, you are a terrible person and are going to hell. Because you obviously don't care enough! How can you NOT want to help others! Selfish person! It's driving me nuts. They also implied last night that Trump denying refugees to come here is just mean and evil.

309 238 101 A question for the Elders of the Horde: Was it like this in the late 60's? How did the normal people survive? I *suspect* that it was worse then. However, there was not 24/7 media coverage of every moment back then. That makes the difference. Which is why I suggest... complain about this to your local news stations and their advertisers. I wish to point out that I might be elderly, but I am not an Elder of the Horde. Becoming an Elder of the Horde involves a sacred and private ceremony involving Ace, the cobs, and Empress Alex the Chick. It also involves the use of Value Rite vodka and hobo pelts.

Because Bush and the Rs didn't bother defending themselves?

The Dems would come out and say Bush was Hitler, a war criminal, and kind of like Satan. Bush would come out and say "can't we all get along?" and the average voter would split the difference - that Bush wasn't Hitler but he was terrible.

The Dems now come out and say Trump is Hitler. He responds that they are a bunch of crooked crooks who are trying to save their crooked polices from his sensible reforms. The average voter hears that Trump is a hardass and the Dems are crooks....

That's why I have some hope...

356 My concern is that if the left keeps this up loud and long enough it will work like the Iraq War protests did: eventually people start going "well maybe they have a point, why would they be so upset over nothing? Look at how many people are out there yelling, it must mean something!" And we get where we are today where even people here are all "ooh it was the wrong thing to do, Iraq was harmless, we should have stayed home, Bush sucks!!!" That's the end goal: they eventually got to President Bush even at wartime. The American people aren't very well informed and are easily swayed. All the left has to do is keep up the momentum long enough. Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at January 31, 2017 12:36 PM (39g3+) I posted something similar upthread, but I don't think this is going to happen. The circumstances are different. The left didn't start with BusHitller in 2001. They ramped up to it. And even then, that wasn't the crux of their argument. In 2004-2006, they had a very easy case. "The war just isn't worth it." And they backed that case up with a constant stream of stories about the soldiers that died in Iraq and stories about how bad the economy was going and the deficit. Bush had to make a difficult case for himself. He had to explain that it was worth it, and yes, these things are bad, but we need to stick it out because the alternative would be worse, and in the end it'll be better. He didn't make that case very well, and by 2008, enough people fell into the "it's not worth it" camp. This time, Trump is the one that gets to make the easy case. "I want to stop people from getting into the country that want to harm you." That's what people on the margins hear when they just hear about his EO. And the gut reaction that a lot of people have is "good." The left has to make a much more nuanced argument this time. That his action does not help his stated goal. But they're not doing that. They're going straight for the character assassination. Anyone who supports this is a Nazi. When you pressure people with such an extreme version of the argument like that, you don't persuade them to change their views. You get them to dig their heels in.

381 Speaking of which...I'm nominally Episcopalian. I've long known our priest and much of the church's efforts are leftist, but we're still there. But...the past month - when the priest acknowledges one of the congregation for going out to protest Trump's immigration policies, and someone else stands up to promote a presentation against 'white privilege' and a bunch of other SJW bullshit... We have certain commitments at that church through mid-year, and I will follow through with them, but after that - I'm done.

397 The circumstances are different. The left didn't start with BusHitller in 2001
***
Yes, the first Bush years were odd for the Dems.

They opened up complaining that he wasn't doing anything about the Taliban because he didn't care about women.

Then 9/11 happened and we invaded Afghanistan.

Feminists were confused for a bit and disappeared...later they would argue he deposed the Taliban...because he didn't care about women.

In 2002 the Dems ran on a platform of war with Iraq and that unlike that wuss Bush they would win the WoT. They believed at the time that Americans agreed with them on domestic policy and adopting a pro-war stance would allow them to win the off year elections.

They were wrong...and confused again.

They spend 2002-4 going back and forth between arguing that Bush was incompetently fighting the Iraq war, which they could win, and that we should cut an run.

And they were shocked when they lost again in 2004. It wasn't really until after that election that they 100% jumped on the no war for oil bandwagon. Perhaps more importantly, in 2004 Bush put pressure on the Saudis for internal reform and the Saudis started bankrolling the Dems and the "anti-war" effort.

419 Willowed in the last thread. Reply to Naturalfake - @58 OT: I've been watching a fair amount of Japanese anime recently and have noticed that- there is a deep streak of melancholy running through many (most?) of them. When Japan chose the Keynesian/leftard economic solution to enrich the elites, they chose to kill their nation by slow strangulation through robbing the young. Now, they're trapped and i think this shows up culturally. Very sad. --------------------- There's a particularly unusual anime (yes, I know, I repeat myself) that aired a few years ago called 'C'. It features a more or less normal modern world. The weirdness is that the main characters are all part of a group who duel each other using familiars with attacks named after economic terms. Reason I bring it up is because the antagonist (who means well) tries to help Japan by repeatedly causing massive inflation of the quantity of Yen in circulation. The results are predictable.

Win or lose you have given this country something that many thought may have been lost forever: a fighter. Continue the fight Mr. President. Take back our country, whatever the cost. Fight for our country at the podium, in the hallowed halls and in the press. Fight for our country and never surrender. If you fail, we all fail. Mistakes happen and there will be setbacks but the American people did not elect you to be perfect. We elected you to fight. So fight Mr. President and may god lead you to victory.

481 Posted by: The Political Hat at January 31, 2017 12:51 PM (OzJeO) You seem to be unhappy with this. What would be your solution? You're forgetting that it the left who abandoned normal political discourse and instead made it their goal to personally destroy President Trump. Those are the RoE of the present conflict. We didn't choose them, but it would be foolish to pretend they're not in effect. As Andrew Breitbart said, "F*ck you. War." Posted by: OregonMuse, deplorable since 2004 at January 31, 2017 12:58 PM (/9ppM) There are certainly many Republican elected officials who are beyond redemption. I am wondering however, we have many many regulars here, who, let's be honest, don't want to give up on the "status quo." They LIKE the way Republicans operate, and like the benefits they derive from business as usual. If this WAS a usual Republican Administration, I would imagine some of them would be jostling for their goodies, and essentially Trump isn't giving them any. So... the question is, how long? How long do we wait for Establishment Republicans who are otherwise just ordinary citizens, to get on board? I'm sure some would say their time is already past. I don't know. I really don't.

482 Dear Mr. President, I am writing you to offer what words I can to encourage your great endeavor to make America great again. It is no great feat to announce lofty aspirations, I do it myself from time to time. But to stick to that aspiration and stay true to the great work you have set out for yourself is something many of our country have not seen from a politician in our lifetime. Win or lose you have given this country something that many thought may have been lost forever: a fighter. Continue the fight Mr. President. Take back our country, whatever the cost. Fight for our country at the podium, in the hallowed halls and in the press. Fight for our country and never surrender. If you fail, we all fail. Mistakes happen and there will be setbacks but the American people did not elect you to be perfect. We elected you to fight. So fight Mr. President and may god lead you to victory. Know that in this fight you have my support and my prayers. Godspeed, Posted by: Churchill's ghost at January 31, 2017 12:58 PM (H3WNZ) --------------- I told him that I would stand by his side, if asked, and fight with him. No man can fight this alone.

Trump did and now we are fighting for the countries future. Thisis the tool we have. i Hope you understand this isn't about i don't like this guy or that guy , it's about fighting becasue the left already ran roughshod over the non stalwart weeenies on our side. in other words, don't take it personally you are a wise man appreciated but this for many of us is a fight for our childrens very existance.

486 The opportunity here is for Trump to reach across the aisle and meet the Democrats halfway on most issues. If it is humble enough, Senators McCain and Graham also may express approval. It doesn't mean, necessarily, that he has to agree Melania should be raped to death by Muslim refugees, but it does have to demean himself proudly in the same way President Bush did every day! If he just makes these tweaks, his nominees could get at least an unfair hearing.

I also emailed my senator, Rob Portman, and ripped him a new one because he was talking about how this immigration EO was unconstitutional and he was against it. I told him Trump has too much to do to fight with people in his own party, and I expected him to do his job of supporting Trump.

493 All that matters, it would seem, it that the designated hero (i.e. Trump) smashes the designated villain (i.e. the "status quo", i.e. those who do not embrace the champion). No one is taking issue with those who don't wish to embrace the champion. We do object to those who will not even offer the minimum cooperation to a man who delivered a landslide victory when the "status quo" mouthpieces were already scheduling their HRC inaugural events.

497 My letter so far:

Dear President Trump,

In the interest of full disclosure, you were not my first choice to be the 45th President of the United States. Nor were you second, third or fourth. To be blunt, I believed your candidacy to be a gimmick. Like many, I underestimated you, and I humbly apologize.

I did end up voting for you, not because I knew what kind of President you would be, but because I knew what kind of President Hillary Clinton would be. And after eight years of President Obama, I did not believe our nation could weather all that a Hillary Clinton administration would bring.

Your first week-and-a-half in office has been nothing short of masterful. I believe you to be a good man, thick-skinned and surrounded by other good men and good women. Dark forces have aligned themselves against you, and I pray that despite the hatred and vitriol being hurled in your direction, that you stand firm. There is no doubt in my mind that you love these United States, and will do what is right and true to defend and enrich them. It is said to be lonely at the top. Mr. President, you are not alone. Millions of us supported you on November 8th, and still do. As your quest to Make America Great Again proceeds and bears fruit, millions more will rally to your banner.

...all I have for now. Needs some tinkering, but it is a very cathartic undertaking because as I'm reassuring him, I'm reassuring myself.

Obama won in 2012 in a landslide and carried both houses of Congress in with him. I was not willing to offer him or any of his minions even a minimal level of cooperation. Nor did they have any interest in my cooperation or even the most minimal negotiation or hearing of an alternate opinion. "I won", "Elections have consequences", etc. I was not a Trump supporter but, damn it, the weasel wearing bastard is earning quite a bit of respect from me. I still don't agree with a lot of shit he says but, damn, credit where it's due. He's willing to fight, willing to take a lot of shit for doing what he thinks is right, and doesn't try to decide what to eat for breakfast by a series of committees. I respect he hell out of that.

I support your efforts to return to an America of individual rights, limited government and regulations, and especially where we can be left alone to be creative, self-governed citizens.
