When President Trump stated recently that his administration was running like a finely tuned machine I believe that he was correct, but that finely tuned machine can’t compete with a Democrat machine, which is a completely different type of animal altogether. Liberal Democrats are all of the same frame of mind in that their objective is power, control and the undermining of the restrictions on their exercise of power and control as enumerated in the constitution. And don’t forget that the liberal press is on the side of the Democrat Party and will at every opportunity praise them for the power attempts and give the impression that their policies are all great, that they serve the general population, and that they further constitutional protection of the citizens’ rights.
When Democrat presidents have officials like Lois Lerner, Eric Holder and liberal judges on the ninth circuit court embedded in their administration, fine tuning is not needed because there is never friction between the operating parts as each official tries to consolidate their personal power and control and defeat the common enemy, the Republicans. Democrats will take every opportunity to change and undermine the constitution, because the constitution reduces their power individually and as a ruling party. And Democrats will never raise the alarm about another official Democrat gathering too much power, because power is all that Democrats care about and they all keep the omerta of silence in order to further the liberal cause of power-grabbing.
On the other hand you have Republicans who want government run within the confines of the constitution, and they welcome restrictions on power, even limits on their own personal power, because they understand that power, if taken to its ultimate extreme, leads to dictatorship. So, since Republicans respect the limitations of the constitution, there is often friction among the members as each tries to exercise his or her power within constitutional limits, and all the oiling and fine tuning in the world can’t prevent this friction.
So President Trump can fine tune all he wants and he’ll never, to his credit, have a machine that runs as smoothly as the Democrats because they know no limits on their grasp for power and in their attempts to by-pass the constitution, and the press is always cheering them on and praising them.
So the Democrat machine is the better running machine, except that the American people have voted Democrats out of office at the federal level, and at the state level in many states, and the American people want a party that will abide by the constitution and allow individual citizens to exercise power separate and distinct from the federal, monstrous, leviathan in Washington, and they want limited control at the federal level based on laws, not personalities and the latest liberal fad, like the idiocy of sexual-identity restrooms.
President Trump’s policies and agenda are on the path to the strengthening of America and its citizens’ liberties and wealth, and one sincerely hopes he continues on that path and that he succeeds, because the Democrat’s policies lead to destruction and a loss of liberty for all Americans.
