I am a convert, and the left would call me a part of the Trump Cult. I was not a Trump supporter during the 2016 primaries. I was not convinced that Donald Trump had become a conservative. I was wrong and am on board the Trump America First bandwagon.
Donald Trump is not a politician. He never was a politician. This was obvious during the debates of the 2016 primary. He did not answer questions in the typical manner of those who had been in politics, but he would answer yes or no. He also refrained from the common political phrases such as my good friend, and I have the greatest respect. This was in total contrast to the political world. We later learned this was who Donald Trump is and was not some political act.
Donald Trump turned the United States political world upside down. First of all, he actually proceeded to do what he had said he would do. He did not apologize for his beliefs, but did what had become exceedingly rare for a Republican, he fought for his policies. We quickly learned that not only was Donald Trump not a politician, but perhaps more importantly, he was not the typical Republican, a caver and apologizer who was more interested in perception than in results.
Donald Trump did put America and the American people first. His top priority was to protect the United States. He said he would secure our Southern Border and he set about doing it despite fierce opposition. We are witnessing today just how wise a decision that was. He put the needs of the American people above the wishes of the European Union, the Chinese, North Korea, and the terrorist supporting nations of the Middle East. This was a shock to these groups because they had grown accustomed to the anti-American positions of Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bush.
Even Canada and Mexico learned that we had a different type of President who was not willing to favor them over the American people. President Trump understood what it was he wanted to accomplish and understood how to negotiate and use his strength to accomplish his America first goals.
We also learned just how established the deep state was in government, or what was revealed as a pro-collectivist and anti-American agenda of the bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts known as the bureaucracy. This collectivist mentality propelled our nation down “The Road to Tyranny” and away from individual liberty and freedom. President Trump did not make excuses for, nor did he apologize for his love for that unique American principle of less government being better government which is less regulation and less taxes.
This America First agenda, not just iterated but practiced, exposed so clearly the agenda of the left. People could no longer deny that the left’s agenda is to have a nation that conforms to the Marxist Doctrine and is willing to use whatever means are necessary to achieve that end. The American left, as are all communists, devoted to achieving a society that accepts having government bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts dictate how each person is to live their life and how each person is to think.
Yes, I am a part of what the communist movement is calling the Trump Cult. My devotion is not to a specific individual, but it is to individual liberty and freedom, or what is more appropriately referred to as the American way. I do believe it is important for Donald Trump to continue to be the leader of this movement, but the movement must continue and grow stronger with whomever would lead it. If it does not, America will become that Marxist totalitarian state so desperately desired by the left.
