Surge Summary: Despite his baggage, Donald Trump may remain the best option if the choice is any Democratic candidate for president. On the other hand, any Republican who promised to carry out a key list of goals would win the election, Trump or not.
by Don Boys
The hatred expressed for Trump and all America Firsters by the self-righteous and falsely tolerant people in the world is reminiscent of the worst brutality, barbarism, and bloodshed of history. The acceleration of Democrat-sponsored baby-killing, high taxes, offensive regulations on business owners and individual citizens, stratospheric inflation, public perversion and transgenderism, invasion of our borders, etc., will only accelerate if a Democrat is elected in 2024. The leftist loonies (the BLM and Antifa crowd) want a revolution where they are in control, the homes are decimated, the churches are powerless, and the poor are forever poor and always vote Democrat.
Former President Donald Trump offered himself as the antidote to the above when he announced as a candidate for President in 2024. Without any political experience, he was elected in 2016 and fulfilled many promises, unlike any other President. His America First agenda and his theme of Make America Great Again resonated with patriotic Americans.
I was slow to support him because he appeared to be rude, crude, and even lewd regarding women. He often caused problems with his arrogance and unwarranted, unnecessary, and unseemly attacks on people who disagreed with him. He seems to lack common sense and decency in dealing with critics while some close to him declare he is sensitive to others.
My first choice in 2016 was Cruz; however, that was not to be. America turned to Trump, who made bold promises and managed to keep most of them. Trump was not politically astute, which was clear by not permitting his rough edges to be smoothed. He was too boisterous, too braggadocio, and too bombastic. He refused to be corrected because he thought he was never wrong. He was very careless with his highest appointments, one of my concerns with his wisdom.
In 2017, Donald Trump came with promises of change, and it’s no wonder that his largest share of voters were evangelicals who hoped he would reverse all of Obama’s anti-family and abortion policies. Although Trump did a good job of reversing some bad abortion and other policies, he refused to deal with homosexual “marriage” and even promoted it globally!
If re-elected, it is expected that he would attempt to make sodomy great again. Don’t think ancient Sodom would think that wise. For sure, it would be disgusting, divisive, and disruptive—not what any thoughtful leader wants.
Trump appointed openly homosexual Richard Grenell to serve as the United States Ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020. He is a graduate of Evangel University (Assembly of God school in Springfield, Missouri) and Harvard. He lives with a “domestic partner.” He said, “I’m a better Christian for being gay.” His appointment was a slap in the face of every decent person and Christian in America.
I will forgive that major blunder if convinced Trump will “save America.” If another candidate is more promising, I will vote for him.
Trump is proud of his production of the COVID vaccines that have now been shot into the arms of about 6 billion people around the world. I think it will prove to be, if not already, the worst health decision of any American President.
However, he kept his word, especially in putting America first. I can live with him unless another candidate convinces me he or she will make America great again and put America first in every decision made.
There will be other Republican candidates for the presidency, and that could be healthy. Let each one make his or her pitch and criticize each other, permitting us to decide whom to trust to really make America great again.
Trump or any other Republican can win the presidency if he makes the following promises—
My fellow Americans:
America will adhere to a new foreign policy that will keep Americans safe and solve the problem of terrorism. We will return to our roots and follow the wise advice of our Founding Fathers. We will no longer get entangled in foreign alliances. We will no longer meddle in the affairs of other nations nor consider ourselves the policeman of the world. We will always consider first our national interests. We will not presume that we know what is best for other countries. What may be best for us may not be best for them.
We will no longer try to topple governments as we did in Ukraine in 2014 and set up democracies. Of course, we will always encourage liberty everywhere. We will not carpet-bomb cities filled with innocent civilians. We do not believe “total war” is morally right or militarily justified. However, be assured those culpable individuals who attack America will be punished as a deterrent to others.
On my first day in office, I will inform the Mexican Government that they have two weeks to stop the constant flow of illegal aliens crashing our border. If not, the U.S. has many options to help them change their minds and border policy. Furthermore, I will have the Mexican cartels declared as terrorist groups and if the Mexicans can’t or won’t immediately stop the deadly drugs flowing into our nation, I will have our elite troops handle the problem.
Moreover, I will authorize the use of troops on our southern border to secure that border and arrest, fingerprint, and photograph each illegal alien before he or she is deposited forthwith back in Mexico. Any second offenders will be imprisoned and put to work on a Texas or Arizona work or chain gang. Furthermore, any American firm that knowingly hires an illegal alien will be heavily fined. Following a second offense, their business license will be revoked.
Furthermore, I will authorize federal authorities to cooperate with state officials to apprehend all illegal aliens and remove them to the southern border when they can return home.
Also, I will shut the welfare window. No more foreign aid to any nation. We may decide in the future that it is in our best interest to help some nation, but it will be temporary and as unusual as snow in July.
There are 200,000 troops stationed in 177 countries throughout the world, and we will start bringing them home. They will be sent to foreign nations only in event of declared war or in the interests of the U.S. This is not isolationism, but it is an America First policy. Any other policy is insane. Japan, Germany, and the other nations where our troops are stationed must now protect themselves or depend on NATO and similar groups.
Americans don’t hate Muslims or anyone else since it is wrong and unproductive to hate; however, we will no longer plead with Muslims, at home and abroad, to love us. We will no longer express guilt and self-loathing. Federal officials will no longer try to prove that Americans are not racists. It is up to Muslims to prove they are not terrorists!
As to the Middle East, we don’t know what is best! Israel has been a long-time friend of the U.S. and I proved that by moving our embassy to Jerusalem. We will support their right to exist within secure borders and support their right to defend themselves against those who want to “drive them into the sea.” We will not support a Palestinian state carved out of Israel but would support a separate state if it is carved out of surrounding Muslim-dominated nations.
We have disagreements with both the Israelis and the Palestinians. They have both acted uncivilized, unreliable, and undemocratic. They must settle their own affairs, with or without the assistance of surrounding nations. I pray to the God of the Bible that they will solve their differences, but they will do so without U.S. dominance or interference.
As to our reliance on Middle East oil, I will on my first day authorize drilling in Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico, and off the coast of California. At that time, I will authorize the opening of the Keystone XL pipeline and its extension. I will also immediately expand the mining of our vast coal supplies.
We will try to be sensitive to the environment and its impact on the climate; however, I believe that people are more precious than plants or bugs or snakes or fish, or spotted owls. Our drilling equipment may cause a caribou here and there to abort her young, or a bear may singe its rear end on our pipeline, but we will live with those tragedies.
American oil will flow. Moreover, of course, we will still buy oil from South America and even Middle Eastern nations; however, we will not buy oil from states that support terrorists. They can pour their excess oil over their pancakes each morning for all we care. Or drink it! This government will no longer pretend that terrorist leaders, kings, dictators, etc., are gracious gentlemen, nor will American officials shake their hands while smiling like idiots.
We will encourage American entrepreneurs through tax incentives and other measures to pursue the development of alternative fuels.
Individual households and businesses can be assured that taxes will be cut, not raised, while we pay off our national debt by eliminating the Energy Department, Commerce Department, Education Department, and hundreds of unnecessary and overlapping commissions that harass and limit private enterprise. Government assistance will be ended or curtailed to only the neediest cases.
We have some difficult days ahead that will require an adjustment by all of us. Nevertheless, we see a bright future after a few years of sacrifice. This administration will keep you informed since you are the Boss. You fund our world travels and generous salaries as you do for all Federal employees.
If elected in 2024, I will take the job seriously; therefore, we promise that any further bills that come to the Oval Office from Congress must meet five criteria to qualify for passage: It must be constitutional. It must be necessary. We must be able to afford the proposed law. It must not expand government and limit individual liberty. The last criterion is that it must not undermine the family, decency, and general morality. If a bill does not pass those five criteria, it will not get the required signature.
No doubt there are knees jerking all across America (left ones, of course), and those people can cast their vote for new leadership and these policies in the next election. Until then, learn to live with it. When I am re-elected, I will do as I have promised. And may the God of the Bible bless America! Finally, during this Christmas season, when we honor the birth of Jesus Christ, who died to provide a way of salvation for sinners, I wish the best for you and your family. Good night to everyone.
Of course, like former Presidents Bush, Obama, and Biden, Trump does not have the convictions, courage, or character to make such a statement; however, he could probably win if he espouses most of it. So could any Republican—though none have the backbone to make the speech.
It seems all politicians need a spinal transplant, especially our next President!
