Ever since Tuesday night Lake Michigan has been rising. No, it is not due to global warming it is from the Democrats crying about their candidate losing big. Every time I see the national election map and see the big blob of blue surrounded by Red States it makes me cry too. My vote meant nothing toward electing Trump. Hillary got 69% of the vote and Trump got thirty. I could have stayed home and had the same effect on the election. Even our Republican Senator lost his job. There are times when I want to move out of Illinois to get away from all the blue, but I have too many roots here and I am anchored forever.
I wish to thank our own Community Dis-organizer for showing us how strong the Constitution really is. Even with his mighty pen, and the entire government supporting him, his efforts to damage the sacred document managed only to make some small dents. Hopefully, his successor will undo the damage with his equally powerful pen. Our job now is to re-construct the principles of the document, and beat back any new affronts to take it down.
Back in 2008, I never thought the battle to take back the country would take eight years, but thankfully, the Tea Party movement stuck to it and managed to wake us up to who is in charge. Without the constant effort of my Tea Party and all the others across the country Hillary would be dancing a jig with Bill like Irish leprechauns.
The one principal mistake I saw in Obama’s run was his transformation of the greatest country in the world. “Into what?” It doesn’t make sense to destroy the greatest country to make it equal to all the lessor countries, and thus force us to become third class citizens. It makes more sense to help the rest of the world rise to the level of the USA. Unfortunately, Leftists don’t accept capitalism as the way to make it happen. Instead of equal opportunity for all they rather push equal outcomes for all. Communism has never worked in any country where it has been tried. It won’t work now either, but we now have a country full of unemployed over educated young people who have never left the nest to become responsible for their own outcome.
At this point, the United States has almost completed the great give away of American manufacturing to lessor countries like China, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea. The seers of the time sold the idea of sending all our menial manufacturing jobs to these countries because we would need all of our educated people to staff the knowledge sector. We would be the ones teaching the world how to do things. Except of course, that all the motivation to learn how to do things left the country with our industry. Most invention is realized by the need to solve problems. Many of the problems occur during manufacturing. The people needed to solve those problems now live in China, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea.
The leftists are now working on the financial sector. They orchestrated the housing bubble back when Bill Clinton signed a law that encouraged, no, I mean forced lenders to loan, no, to give money to anyone who wanted a house. Never matter that they could not afford a house. The liberal mind-set decrees that it is everyone’s right to own a house. It took a few years to happen, but the bubble finally burst and we were left with a major recession, no, it was a depression worse than the one that occurred in 1929. There I go again spewing history that no longer applies to modern generations of kids who run up astronomical loans to finish college, and graduate with nonsense degrees which earned them knowledge about everything, but about nothing, nothing useful that is, now they lobby for free tuition too.
When Obama began his transformation, I was invigorated to educate as many people as I could to the perils of his policies. This blog which was going to be a blog that would explore human potential evolved into a teach the world about the evils of Obama’s policy blog. When he was elected the second time, I became depressed and have been so for four years. My personal blog-pieces diminished to almost zero. The depression caused a writer’s block and I reverted to re-blogging other people’s posts that mirrored my own philosophies. Now that Trump has been elected, I am again invigorated to speak freely about the benefits of conservatism.
From a human potential perspective, Donald Trump is a great subject. He knew the mountain he had to climb to become president, but he never let up. He set a goal, and visualized himself winning this election. Those are two key human potential concepts; goal setting, and visualization. There many other steps he used like defining the goal, listing the steps you would have to take to make the goal. He identified all the things he didn’t know, and found answers via experts. His mastery of using all the rules of goal setting and positive thinking is remarkable.
Living in a blue state means that I am constantly bombarded by nonsensical liberal BS. Illinois is among the lowest of the states in jobs, they continue to raise taxes, which only drives people and companies to leave the state. For instance, they put an item on the ballot to change the constitution to force the state to use all money collected from transportation, like gasoline taxes, license fees, tolls etc onto roads and bridges. Sounds good doesn’t it? Except it occurred to me that these taxes now put more money into the treasury than income taxes do. So where will they get money to support all non transportation related expenditures like social programs? You got it, by getting this constitutional amendment passed it gives the royal highness’s in Springfield an excuse to raise taxes. Currently there is talk of raising taxes 33%.
The one thing the election did was to firm up the jobs of all the Democrats currently in charge, and because they won with such a large majority they will argue that they have a mandate to raise taxes to save the state from bankruptcy. The first item on their agenda will most likely be to raise salaries for all state workers, legislators, and administration. Forget the unfunded over bloated pension funds of these same people, teachers, police, and firefighters. The only ones who are middle class in this state work in the public sector.
