As I sit down and listen to the speakers of CPAC, I begin to see a vision of America that, in my opinion, our President also sees for the citizens of our great country.
I have tried to absorb as much information as I can over the last year and half. I try to connect the dots, because I love challenges and puzzles, and this has led me to the theme and title of this article.
See, I was on the Trump Train from the beginning because it was such a wonderful thought that a billionaire businessman would leave his comfortable life and give the rest of it to the American people. I went back and watched countless hours of interviews with Donald J. Trump. I could not figure out why this man was willing to sacrifice everything to save us and the United States. I truly believed that if we had not elected this man at this time, this country would have fallen, as so many in history have. To have a President who was not mired in the political muck, was a lifelong wish. I wanted so much to see a businessman run this country like a business. What a novel thought. Could it happen and what would be accomplished?
After all of my obsessive watching and reading, I feel I have come to a conclusion as to why Donald J. Trump wanted to become the President of the American people. It is not out of ego, it is not for notoriety – for those are givens that come with holding the most important position in the world. It is as simple as one document written many, many years ago: the Constitution.
Few believed he was a conservative, much less a Constitutionalist, but I believe he is the ultimate Constitutionalist, unlike anyone who has ever been elected to any office since our Founding Fathers. President Trump will redefine the meaning of this concept for future generations as he shapes this country with his vision.
Deconstruction is what we are witnessing. We are living in the greatest time in history as we all get to watch the world change. Many are scared of the future – I am excited. I see a beautiful world ahead, not a scary one, or a violent one, or a war-torn one. Why can I say this? Because as President Trump deconstructs the federal government, the rest of the world will be taking notes. When Trump coined the phrase “Drain the Swamp,” he meant he was taking us back to the basics. Life has become too complicated in so many ways, and it is because our government has mettled in our everyday lives. Trump will lead the nation with his actions and accomplishments, and the world will take notice and follow behind his leadership.
To Drain the Swamp, one must deconstruct every element of the federal government. This became obvious to me as I have watched President Trump in action since his inauguration.
He is castrating the federal government, department by department. He is castrating the liberal cabal. He is castrating the globalist elites. He is castrating the mainstream media. No more will these factions take advantage of everyday Americans. No more will they be relevant. This is a crude way to describe what I believe are his intentions and his agenda, but it is also such a wonderful way to portray what is happening. It is kind of crazy, but absolutely the right approach to solve our many problems and bring us back to the vision of the Founding Fathers.
The sole purpose of the federal government is to protect the people, to protect the homeland, to provide a defense against any foreign invaders who wish to do us harm. We need only a very simple government, not the monstrous mess that we have. When you think about this and think about what President Trump is doing and what he is saying, then you might come to the same conclusion that I have. Think of Trump as the savior of a lonely old dog covered in blood sucking ticks. What is he going to do? Pick off one tick at a time and kill it.
Each bloated government bureaucracy has an ugly history. They have many layers of politicians whose sole purpose is to live off the American people and create laws and regulations that help to keep them in the positions that made them rich and powerful. Do we really need these many different departments? Many only exist to keep their club members in their comfortable clubhouses. What has Trump done to deal with this problem? He has assembled the smartest, most conservative team to help deconstruct/castrate each one of the useless departments. His cabinet members have one common agenda: to cut the federal government down, leaving only the individuals who will help return the power back to the States and the People.
Castration of the departments will lead to a smaller federal government that will not continue to suck the blood out of the American people like the ticks on that old dog. This will lead to a prosperous economy as jobs and industry are able to grow and expand with the government no longer stepping on them. It will lead to a future generation of citizens who will have a better education, thus more opportunities. It will lead to government that is fiscally responsible and not in crisis. There are many wonderful benefits of a smaller government – too many to list here.
Castration of the liberal left and the Elite will return the country to principles and traditions that we cherish. We are a divided country, but why? It comes down to propaganda and brain washing. If we start thinking for ourselves and taking responsibility for our own lives, then morality can come back and political correctness dies. The mainstream media becomes irrelevant, the protestors in the streets become irrelevant, the liberals become irrelevant.
We all need to do what we were intended to do by our Constitution, and that is to pay attention and govern the government – not allow the government to govern us. This is what President Trump is telling us and showing us: the power belongs to the People. He is our messenger.
Our President only needs a select handful of talented collaborators surrounding him to accomplish all that is needed for every American citizen – not layer upon layer of bureaucrats whose only intentions are to keep the government growing exponentially and sucking the life out of all us.
President Trump is giving us every piece of the puzzle. He is telling us everything thing we need to know to solve our own problems and to unite our country. All we have to do is pay attention. All we have to do is take responsibility. And AMERICA WILL BE GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE.
