It was a very interesting and revealing evening. Both President Trump and the response by Stacy Abrams gave better than respectable deliveries. The close of the State of the Union by President Trump was an inspirational call to patriotism to everybody, regardless of political party. It was very well crafted and very well delivered.
There were, however, very telling moments that showed a great divide that must be bridged for the good of the country. President Trump had just referred to the devastation currently taking place in Venezuela brought about by the socialism started by Chavez and continued by Maduro. President Trump then did something I do not remember any President doing in any speech, much less the State of the Union, when he declared that the United States must never succumb to that evil that is socialism. Those on the right stood and cheered while those on the left sat with no clapping and with angry looks on their faces.
Abrams in her response, while being divisive in her rhetoric, called for social programs through government, just as Chavez did in Venezuela, as the solution for any and all problems, real or perceived. She also used the same call that has been used by collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) always. That is that they are the party of the people and all should be allowed to vote with no restrictions including being a United States Citizen or an illegal alien, whether dead or alive, or whether voting once or numerous times. Elections of this nature are easily manipulated and bring about the results of those willing to manipulate an election as we saw throughout the country but especially in California in 2018. This type of election manipulation has always ended with people becoming servants, serfs, and slaves to a Marxist tyrannical state.
The other telling moment during the State of the Union was when President Trump called upon congress to pass a law that prohibited the killing of a baby after that child had been delivered. That a President would have to even do this in the United States is appalling. The reaction by those on the left was nothing short of atrocious. Again, they sat, no applause, frowns on most of their faces, but a despicable smirk on the face of Chuck Schumer. My reaction was to wonder if this was the same smirk Josef Mengele had on his face as he did his “experiments”. Schumer’s smirk was nothing short of demonic, as I would imagine was Mengele’s.
That the United States President would be compelled to call for the United States to refute socialism and to not participate In the Satanic practice of infanticide is frightening. We can only hope that the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) will take a moment from their hateful criticism of President Trump and reflect on three of their most dangerous positions; their demand to murder babies from the time of conception to sometime (not defined) after their birth, to fundamentally transform the United States into a socialist society, and to insist on having open borders with no distinction between legal citizen and illegal alien.
