If the indicators are accurate, what is coming is not going to be pleasant.

What you do about it and whether you will come through it will be largely dependent on two things:  your attitude and knowledge of what is happening, why it is happening and what to do about it.

There is a reality the middle class needs to deal with:  You are the target of all of the attacks that have occurred since the Kennedy assassination.  The reason you are the target is that an oligarchy like communism, socialism or a monarchy requires a social order made up of two classes:  The elite and the workers.  These forms of government cannot function with a middle class that has upward mobility.  Thus, as long as there is a middle class, there can be no world government.

You can blame anyone you want for what has, is, and will be happening to American citizens in the near future… what is yet to come will be a first for all of us.  The truth is, the problems we now face have been brewing for over 100 years.  It is like a pimple that, when filled with puss, finally bursts.  The question is, who do you want as President of the United States to clean up the poison?

In many ways, we the people allowed what’s going to happen, but when we elected Donald Trump to clean the swamp we had no idea that corruption could be so deep and infectious.  We didn’t know it would permeate the entire government (including the Department of Justice and our intelligence agencies).  We didn’t know that a political party would literally risk the safety and welfare of the entire nation to fulfill its power needs.

Power needs?  Indeed!  They need enough power to prevent the swamp from being cleaned.  They are part of the manure to be removed.  There are elected officials from both political parties who are part of that muck

If you’re still voting for those who have been in Washington, D.C. for many years you are totally out of touch with reality.  If it’s because you’re on drugs or have a mental disorder, you have my sympathy and prayers.  Anyone who has been in Washington D.C. more than 12 years needs to go home.  These are the people who have caused the problems.  Anyone who thinks re-electing politicians who created the problems so they can become millionaires will solve those problems is out of touch with reality.

Did you think cleaning the swamp would be easy – or popular?  Did you really believe that when you took time for football games, bowling, television, and a hundred other privileges that it would have a positive effect on a government that kept growing and getting deeper and deeper in debt?

Have you been involved in government?  Or did you sit back and let others take care of things?  Most people have done the latter and it’s gotten us knee-deep in bad stuff.

Anyone with a conscience knows we bear responsibility for today’s problems.  We re-elected to office the same fools who wanted more and more debt and who used debt to create a welfare class dependent on government for survival. Re-electing fools to office is largely what caused people to withdraw from the entire process.  We ignored it.  We enjoyed all of the free time we got by ignoring our over-spending government.

Besides, what can one person do?  Your primary job as a citizen of this country is to find and help good people get elected to public office.  How much of that have you been doing?

We are now about to pay the price for that and you will likely blame everyone but yourself.

While I don’t agree with everything Donald Trump has done, while I dislike some of his self-aggrandizing mannerisms, we could not have a better President to lead us at this particular moment in time.

Donald Trump is tougher than Ronald Reagan and has better insight into how to run government like a business.  He had a sharp learning curve at first on the differences between running a business and running a government, but he learned.  It would have been helpful had he been able to trust White House staff… but the FBI made sure General Flynn was removed from White House access early in the game.

Though Trump seems self-aggrandizing, he has personally and secretly helped too many people about whom we have never heard for that to be true.  It is far easier to hear and see Donald Trump as an arrogant jerk and let the mainstream media win its stupid little game.  They tell you nothing called “news” or “truth.”  They lie.  It is their mission to discredit Donald Trump.

Anyone who watched the differences between the Biden “Town Hall” and the attacks against Trump by what was supposed to be a mediator at his “Town Hall” knows that.

Trump has access to the media so he talks about achievements – and it sounds self-aggrandizing.  It isn’t.  It’s a Trump newscast.  He only gets about one in five things he’s achieved made public, but it’s better than none.  You’d hear nothing about it if the media had its way.  He tells you what his administration is doing.  By acting like a braggart, he ensures the media will cover it.  It’s an opportunity for them to portray the President in a negative way… as a braggart.  He knows they won’t resist that!

We’ve had tough times in 2020 and I believe they are going to get worse.
