TRUMP: Positively positive

Print Article

After three-plus years (that we know of) during which Trump and his associates have been illegally spied on and two-plus years of a conspiracy by the Left and Deep State to remove him from office, Trump delivered the most conciliatory and positive SOTU that I have heard in decades of viewing.

I am not alone, apparently, in my reaction to his speech as fake news CNN and ABC polls both had his approval around 75 percent.

We all know that a “House divided against itself cannot stand,” said Abraham Lincoln. I challenge all Trump haters, The Left, Democrats and Socialists, to remove the hate and then critique and examine your positions on the critically important issues of illegal immigration, border security, and late-term abortion and organ harvesting. These two issues define us as Americans who value life, law, freedom and sovereignty.

Securing our borders is NOT racist nor is it an “immorality.” It is about legal and manageable immigration of people who will be an asset to America as opposed to a burden. America’s Social Services System cannot afford unbridled immigration which currently costs taxpayers $135 billion per year. We also currently GIVE Mexico $88 million per year in foreign aid.

Abortion is about what’s in our hearts and whether we value life as we approach the future.

I think we witnessed on the faces of our representatives during the SOTU, just who values America and who holds life precious.
