We got who we got because of who we had

For those who may wondered how or why Trump was elected; or about those crazies on the Far Left, I’m here to hopefully explain this to you.

I believe that it started way back with Pres. Nixon.

First of all if you remembered your history, you would know that there was a heavy protest on our college campus against the Vietnam War. Some of these Liberals today were possibly protesting on campus and possibly doing drugs and smoking pots.

Another thing that hurt Pres. Nixon was the Watergate scandal. I won’t go into that too much because that is a whole different blog. All I will say that the American people was starting to get upset with our government at that time. Not much was able to be done at that time though.

The reason for that was because of the baby boomer and the older generation wasn’t up to changing Washington.

Now I’m a Generation X. I just missed being a baby boomer by a year. So I can relate very easily with the baby boomer.

The Generation X was responsible for starting the change. They just couldn’t get enough support because of the older generation; who held the country back. It wasn’t until the Millennial came around and the older generation started dying off before any real changes started to happens.

I just had to give you this information to help you see where I’m coming from. Now back to the real reason for this blog.

Pres. Nixon resign as President right on my birthday, Aug. 9, 1974; and Gerald Ford took over as President. Now Ford never stood a chance to be the kind of President he could had been. I mean, Nixon, the Watergate, and the Vietnam War hurt him.

So in 1976, Jimmy Carter was elected President. I won’t go into too much about him because I will save it for another blog once he die. All I will say is this: Carter was different than what they had in Washington.

President Carter only served one term and I will explain that in a different blog. In 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected President. Reagan was anti-establishment and a Republican. He was the reason I became a Republican in 1984. He gave the Generation X a voice in Washington for the change that is happening now. He was the last great Republican president. Reagan served 2 terms.

Yet, Washington still wasn’t ready for it. Both the Republicans and the Democrats fought against it and Pres. Reagan. So in 1988, the first George Bush was elected president. He only was elected because he rode in on Reagan’s coattails. Yet he was the old school Washington establishment. He only served one term though.

What hurt him and was thorn in his side was Ross Perot. Even though he was a third party candidate, he took in more vote than expected. Because of all that Bill Clinton was elected President in 1992.

During all this Generation X was growing up and becoming a big part of making a change in Washington. Whereas the older generation was starting to die off.

I remembered as kid growing up, my step-dad would always say, “United States is due for another Civil War. The American people is going to get so fed up with our Federal Government, high taxes, and high regulations.”

In 2000, George W. Bush was elected President. I’m here to tell you that I didn’t vote for him. I voted for Elizabeth Dole instead. The Established Republicans was afraid of her for some reason. They were so determined to nominate George W. Bush. They wanted to keep their power and control.

For those who don’t know this, the Tea Party movement was started under George W. Bush.

In 2008, Obama was elected president on the idea of change. He knew that America wanted a change . He even promised that change; even though it was different than what we actually wanted.

This Republican voted for Obama in both of his election. I didn’t much care for McCain or Romney. They represented the old establishment.

Finally in 2016, Trump came along with the slogan, “Make America Great Again!” I have to admit, I was afraid of him at first. I wanted Ben Carson. I came around to vote for Trump and I’m glad that I did.

He is draining the swamp in Washington. The news media and the Democrats doesn’t much care for him because of what he is doing for this country. He is only doing what the people wants.

He doesn’t play by the rules in Washington!

Now because of Pres. Trump, we have these Far Left on the Democrats side. They are pure nut jobs. They want to destroy America; by making it into being a Socialist country. They want to take away our freedom and all of our rights as American citizen.

If you don’t agree with them they will attack you with hateful words and action. They don’t think that we have the rights to think for ourselves. Anyone who voted and supported Trump is called derogatory names. They will even spit on us and throw things at us. They call us racist and a bunch of rednecks.

The more they attack us and try to impeach Trump, the more I will vote for him. The more they keep this up, I will never vote for a Democrat again.

So what is happening right now in America; you could say that my step-dad was right. I’m just glad that he isn’t alive to see it. He would be laughing at these Democrats. I believe that he would approve of Pres. Trump; even though he was an Independent voters, who usually voted for the Democrats.
