Our Candidate and Our Uncertain Future

It pains me to no end when Donald Trump acts in ways that turn-off potentially favorable voters

Published

Donald Trump has to win the 2024 election for the sake of our future. So it pains me when he acts in ways that turn-off potentially favorable voters.

Instead of thanking his New Hampshire primary supporters, laying out his plans for the rest of his campaign, and re-stating his vision for the country, Donald Trump spent most of his time that night lambasting his opponent, in this case, Nikki Haley. What a waste of free air-time, and the potential loss of millions of voters in November.

On the Verge of Greatness

In my lifetime, Trump was one of our most effective presidents. Had it not been for COVID-19, he would have turned in stellar numbers for the economy, employment, and so many other areas as a result of all four of his years in office. Similar to 75 million other Trump voters in 2020, I was disappointed by the election results and by gross irregularities perpetrated by Democrats across the country.

During the time Trump has been out of office, however, I expected him to have acquired greater perspective as to what type of person should be leading the United States of America. I had hoped that he would have developed a greater sense of tact. There is no need to belittle opponents with ad hominem attacks.

Joe Biden, as the prime example, is an easy target. He is corrupt beyond belief, a 50-year leach on our republic, and mentally and physically doddering day after day. On stage during rallies and public appearances, when Trump mocks Biden, Trump is not doing himself any favors with independent voters.

Mockery Comes at Great Cost

Who actually pauses to consider why Trump needs to mock Biden and other political opponents? I belong to the National Speakers Association and began making speeches professionally decades ago. I’ve spoken to just under 1,100 groups. I can tell you that Trump’s use of mockery is to seek some cheap laughs.

Nearly all public speakers have an inborn need for approval. There’s no greater approval than when you say something humorous, everyone in the audience is on the same wavelength, and they capitulate in exactly the way that you had hoped. However, as the president of the United States, and perhaps president once again, Trump should be able to rise above seeking cheap laughs.

From the time Trump first started campaigning, to his last day in office, I would cringe at some of his remarks and tweets. I mean, why does he do so? At the 2016 G.O.P. televised debates, he referred to Senator Rubio (R-F.L.) as “little Marco.” Outrageous.

The number of people who Trump has verbally castigated is legion. He claimed that three-time Oscar winner, Meryl Streep, couldn’t act. He has referred to others as stupid, slow, and corrupt. What is the value of making such statements? For one, many are demonstrably false. Meryl Streep is the record holder for Academy Award nominations with 21. Amazingly 17 are for best actress; four are for best supporting actress, and Academy voters don’t lightly hand out such nominations.

Turnabout Doesn’t Yield the Desired Results

Granted, no matter what Trump or any other Republican does in office, the Left is continuously irked and seeks ways to diminish that person, 24-7. So, Trump’s acts and behaviors that upset the Left ought to be of a high level. Why incur wrath over low-level tweets and off-the-wall statements?

Antagonize the Left with tremendous policies, wonderful programs, and initiatives that actually help the majority of Americans. Incur hostility for something that’s worthwhile.

During these last three years, did Trump take time to reflect? He could have read a variety of opinions from those who supported him and from those who were upset about his demeanor, mockery, and mean tweets.

When Capitulation is Required

Barack Obama, the devil in disguise who personifies evil, maintained his demeanor as a figurehead. He rarely showed anger in public. When he put down others, he did it in a sophisticated way. No one should emulate Obama since he is the essence of duplicity, subterfuge, and sabotage. The face he put forward and the way in which he conducted himself, however, even if one can’t stand him, was vastly superior to Trump.

For 2024, Trump has the chops needed to put our country back on track, while often displaying infantile behavior. Most of the Republican politicians whom I favor, including Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Jim Jordan, Josh Hawley, and Tom Cotton, aren’t running for president.

We need for Donald Trump to win November and I can’t stand antics.

What Does the Term African American Mean?

The Left vehemently champions racial division

Published

on

I’ve never understood why Black Americans for several decades running were referred to as African Americans. Even if their ancestors were from Africa, the majority of the nation’s 44 million Black Americans has never been to Africa, have no viable connection to the continent itself, and have little or no concern about it.

Please Explain it to Me

Now here’s the really confusing part. Black Canadians, to my knowledge, generally have never been called African Canadians. Black people in Mexico have not been called African Mexicans. There’s little use of this type of terminology in Europe such as African French, African Italians, African Spanish, or African Portuguese.

Why, only in America, did the description of Black Americans, namely African Americans ever take hold? Overarching names for the various races have fallen out of favor in recent years. White Americans generally are not referred to as Caucasians. Black Americans are not referred to as Negroes.

Endless Morphs

You have to wonder how and why terminology, for various segments of our population, keeps morphing into something new. At one time white Americans referred to black people as colored people. If I were a member of the black community and was referred to by white people as a colored person, I would be upset. We all have a color!

Later, the most appropriate way to address someone of color was to say they were a person of color. However, that is also a misnomer as once again, we are all of some color.

Scientists, anthropologists, social researchers, and others have pointed out that theoretically there are no races. If you lined up every single person on Earth from the lightest skin to the darkest skin the gradation from person to person would be so slight as to be virtually undetectable.

I like the approach that actor Morgan Freeman has taken, and I wish that more people would adopt it. He has eloquently stated, on many occasions, that one way to stop being obsessed with race is to stop talking about it.

Obsessed with Race

A large faction within the U.S. – Democrats — are populated by subgroups with overlapping views: liberals, progressives, socialists, and Marxists. They want to keep race at the forefront of all public discourse. In their eyes, virtually any topic that you can address – the total eclipse in April, for example – has some underlying racial component embedded within it. Not all topics have a racial component, but that is what they propagate on a daily basis.

What’s more, people on the Left are on the ever-present lookout for anything which they regard as a transgression when others are referring to minorities. They particularly are focused on anything that a Conservative says, at any time, even if it was 30 or 40 years ago, that to the Left some way represents a slight or lack of respect for minorities, particularly Black Americans.

For these ‘race police’ it’s like a game. They are delighted when they are able to find something, anything, that they can aggrandize to the hilt, have the mainstream media pick up, and whip into a social and cultural frenzy.

This bit of historical news might be hard to recall, but four years before Barack Obama was elected U.S. president, the topic of race was less contentious. A Gallup Poll revealed that 74% White Americans and 68% of Black Americans felt that race relations in the country were good. 19 years later, 43% of White people and 33% of Black people reported the same.

If we could only return to those pre-Obama days when Americans, of all types, had some common goals and shared the same types of aspirations such as succeeding in their professions, building a strong financial base for their family, and raising happy and healthy children.

Divided Forever?

Alas, with so many on the Left vehemently championing racial division it looks as if we don’t have good prospects, at least for the immediate future, to return to those hallowed, pre-Obama days. As an eternal optimist, however, I believe that one day the clamor will die down, and once again, we will simply all be Americans.
