We All Have A Great Choice On Election Day — Opinion

Sounds about right!

In the movie Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, the character played by Tom Cruise, Ethan Hunt, faces a dilemma. He is in the rafters, above the stage, in a Vienna Opera house. He has spotted two potential assassins, each of whom is focused on the Austrian Chancellor who is seated with his wife in a premier box.

As the opera unfolds below, a crescendo is approaching, and Hunt knows that this is the moment when shooters will strike. With seconds to go, he cannot shoot both of them – if he shoots one, the other will certainly succeed in killing the Chancellor.

Hunt makes a split-second decision and shoots the Chancellor, injuring him only slightly with a flesh wound to his right shoulder. Upon being struck, the Chancellor hunches to his right. Both assassins miss their target, and the Chancellor and his wife are hurried out of the opera box by the Austrian Secret Service.

This brilliant stroke of thinking is something that we each need to consider in our current political climate. We have to make a decision as important as any we’ve ever made. Whoever claims (or reclaims) the presidency on November 3rd, 2020 will be making profound decisions that will impact each and every American for decades to come. If we take the wrong path, we will pay for it dearly.

We’ve already seen what someone who has no concern for the U.S. Constitution or the rule of law – Barack Obama – can do in a few short years, when the opposing party is spineless. In 2015, in attempting to curtail the executive orders, executive actions, and other Constitutional end runs of Barack Obama, Republicans failed miserably, while Democrats cheered wildly with every imperious move.

For eight years, on many key issues, such as public policy, campaign reform, health care, education, government surveillance, foreign affairs, among at least a dozen others, the actions of Republicans and their lack of efficacy resulted in little or no differentiation from their supposedly opponent Democrats.

A Groundswell

Recognizing this lack of differentiation, for the 2016 election, a groundswell of voters from the center to the right (and some from center/left) sought alternatives that, for better or worse, represent the lesser of three evils – Democrats, Republicans, and anyone else entering the fray who appeared to be apart from the rest. Hence, the rise of Donald Trump.

For most of my adult life, I regarded Trump as someone steeped in his own self-importance. However, what was the alternative? The thoroughly corrupt, lifelong Saul Alinsky advocate, Hillary Clinton?

In his 1964 book, Suicide of the West, James Burnham wrote that, “Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.” Burnham predicted that the mindless, shortsighted magnanimity of progressives, who eagerly subordinate the interests and well-being of their own citizens and their own nations in homage to altruistic and utopian impulses, would facilitate the demise of Western civilization.

Donald Trump, an imperfect man, presented at least a glimmer of a chance to halt the U.S. slide into a Marxist and socialist state. Lightning fast, however, Trump proved that he is a staunch defender of democracy. He has actually exceeded the objectives of the Heritage Foundation, who rate him higher than Ronald Reagan.

Sock Puppets

To this day, the contrast between Trump and GOP establishment politicians – many are merely sock puppets owned by big money and big lobbies – is clear. For tens of millions of voters, one candidate in the 2020 presidential election (and only one candidate) isn’t beholden to big money and big lobbies.

This candidate returns big media sucker punches with equal, if not greater, fervor. He is pompous and somewhat boastful. Concurrently, he doesn’t require the United Auto Workers, the other massive labor unions, billionaire schemers, foreign money, the national teachers’ unions, the bar associations, or the federal employee unions to fund his campaign and he will not be beholding to them.

He has shown an amazing will to address fundamental national issues which others are content to gloss over. He has created more jobs, along with benefits, promotions, and advancement for minorities than most people could do in 10 lifetimes. He is Donald Trump – unpredictably, a leader for the ages. He is the candidate in 2020 best equipped to lead us through to 2024.

We are fortunate to have this choice.

The Boston Marathon bomber will receive a stimulus check. And yes, it will be for the same amount that you will get. That’s not a joke. And he’s not the only criminal who will get it, either. Thanks for everything, Dems! Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), and Bill Cassidy (LA) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to block prisoners from being able to receive stimulus checks, which was blocked in a 49-50 vote.

Donald Trump Goes Scorched Earth on ‘Disloyal & Very Bad Senator’ Lisa Murkowski

Say goodbye, Lisa!!

The GOP doesn’t need centrists in the upper and lower chambers. There are far too many liberals in Congress as it is. The left doesn’t need more votes. It’s time for RINO’s like Murkowski, Romney, Toomey, Cassidy, and Sasse to head on back over to the private sector. Donald Trump will do his best to soon make that a reality. From Washington Examiner: Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term. The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico. CONTINUED: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he said. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.” Murkowski, a centrist, has long been willing to split from the former commander in chief, as evidenced by some of her recent votes in the Senate. The Alaskan voted for Trump’s conviction last month on the House’s impeachment article of inciting an insurrection. The former president was ultimately acquitted. https://twitter.com/newsmax/status/1360763406677114886 https://twitter.com/AP/status/1360761311781662720 https://twitter.com/GriffJenkins/status/1360765053436313601 https://twitter.com/DailyMail/status/1360766719141302274 https://twitter.com/LAGOP/status/1360722297754177546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1360722297754177546%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Frepublican-senators-vote-to-convict-trump-on-incitement-charge
