Politics Is Not About Hope, It’s About Intent

President Barack Obama was wrong when he said that his attempts to “fundamentally transform America” had anything to do with “hope and change”. It’s correct that Obama represented change with his attempts to undermine everything that America has stood for the last 200-plus years, but “hope” has nothing to do with government. Rather, “intent” is what government is all about.

If you’re a communist/socialist you want to use government powers to destroy corporations by taxing away their money in order to support the idle citizens who refuse to work and who resent successful, wealthy people. On the other hand, if you’re a capitalist, you understand that competitive private enterprise in which a person’s hard work and successful efforts and ideas have made him/her rich require a government which is small and not intrusive, as America’s government has become as Democrats have set about transforming the United States.

The intent of those in government is to either support big, intrusive government or defend individual freedom so that Americans may live as they see fit. Hope has nothing to do with it. Politics is filled with people who intend to support freedom or support serfdom by putting in place policies and laws that halt individual freedom or enhance it. So the intent of a candidate must be studied as they seek public office.

Donald Trump is the Washington establishment’s worst nightmare because he wants to assure individual liberty and keep government small and unintrusive, as the constitution detailed it to be. It’s been said, and with the insane avalanche of attacks and lies that have been launched at Trump for doing exactly what he promised to do have shown us, it’s obviously true, that Donald Trump is the last chance America has to get its house back in order and get rid of those fools who want to “fundamentally transform America”, and Trump must be supported and backed by every American who appreciates the protection American citizens have under the Constitution, because leftists and other Democrats have only ill intentions toward liberty and the American Constitution.

    I appreciate such material for critical thinking – the pursuit of the TRUTH!

    Isn’t the Truth wonderfully simple when you get right down to the matter of the Truth? And isn’t it wonderful (and frightening at the same time) how obvious the Truth is once you discover it?

    Thank you!
