Why Trump will lose in 2020
Trump will lose mainly because he never won an election to start with. Hillary won the popular vote. While I am glad for the way it turned out, I know America is a better country than to support a second term for Trump. People who had not read his book and did not know him, felt he was the underdog. America has always had a soft heart for underdogs. Wiley Coyote is the perfect example. However Mr. Magoo more personifies the image of the average American politician. Pepe Le pew more personifies the American view of politicians in general.
Trumps presidential style has mirrored his personal background as a self-serving, egotistical, racist with a lack of respect for anything or anybody that disagrees with him. He accumulated his wealth from family handouts, con-games, rip-offs of contractors and a variety of embezzlement schemes, of which some are pending court hearings as to their legality.
He is the very image of the main character in the book “1984,” Hate speech is his strong suite when it comes to facing his problems. He constantly denigrates anything that he does not like. Unfortunately for him American’s are wise to his tactics. I personally believe his base is not big enough to carry him thru the election. He is so busy alienating people that his potential base is shrinking. I know America as a whole is better than him.
When Barrack Obama became president it made me realize, America is capable of overcoming hatred and bigotry. If you had told me twenty years ago a black man would be President I would have laughed at you. Obama’s election showed me that America can rise above its shortcomings. Trump’s election showed me that there is a festering sore just below the surface in America, and that our system, can be diverted and perverted by those who focus their attention on manipulating the system
As long as the Electoral College exists the true will of the American people will never be secure. When it was created it served a purpose. It took almost two months to go across America and back. That is no longer the case and the Electoral College, just like slavery has outlived its usefulness. In this day and age it is a system of perverting the will of the People.
It is not and never was intended to give equality of the little states, against the big states. The only true equality is when every vote counts equally. The Congress was created to fill the gap between big and little and provide equality. I vote as an American, for an American, for America. I believe most other Americans do also.
That is why I believe that the inherent goodness of America will never let the Evil stand that we are seeing perpetuated by this President. We as a people do need to stand up and fix the system so that NO outside source may in any way effect or alter the outcome of our election. The Electoral College does not provide that protection, in fact it creates the opportunity for the perversion of our system thru deception.
On the issue of immigration I find Trump living on hate. His self-righteousness out-weights common sense. It was my good fortune to spend thirteen years of my life in service to my country. Ten of it was spent overseas. In the course of that time I met many thousands of people who wanted to come to America. I do not remember ever meeting any who wanted to change our country. Those who come here, or those who are born here and do so, need to be afforded the opportunity to leave.
America was founded on Judeo-Christian values and those views are expressed in our Constitution. The state is forbidden to endorse or encourage any specific religion. Conversely anyone who wants to force their values on America or Americans violates our laws. Anyone holding an official position in America is required to swear an allegiance to America and our laws. It is my understanding that failure to do so eliminates the person from serving. In my view and opinion a person who refuses to do so should be removed from office.
Having been married to a Mexican/American for forty-seven years this is a topic that I have discussed on many occasions. Whether you were born here or came here, once you are here, you are an American. That means you become American by adapting to our culture.
Those who come here illegally are at risk of being deported. In my opinion America needs to create a Yellow Card, similar to the Green Card, but without the privileges. Any violation of American law should be followed by immediate deportation. It should last ten years and require them to study for citizenship and to find a sponsor to vouch for them to get a Yellow Card. If they do not obtain the card within one year of arriving on American soil, they will forfeit the opportunity to get a card and be subject to deportation. This affords us the opportunity to know who is here and their status. It is better than having millions with no record of their existence in America. It does not afford them the opportunity of citizenship, but affords them and the government to recognize their presence.
This last part I offered only because Congress and Trump are making no progress on the issue. The Yellow Card should also have numbering system that allows them to pay their fair share into the system.
