I Have Some Concerns About Trump As A Candidate for President

trump1I have not yet decided for whom I will vote in the upcoming Republican presidential primary.  But I am conducting my research and trying to get a handle on what each of the candidates have to say on the various issues that compose my core values.

So, I went to Donald Trump’s website to find out where he stands on various issues.  I am dismayed to see that he has only ONE issue on his website – immigration.

America is NOT a single issue country!  There are many, many issues on which any serious candidate MUST have strong positions.  I am positive Mr. Trump has positions on other issues, but voters need to know about those positions.

Until Donald Trump updates his official campaign website with a comprehensive list of key issues along with his positions on those issues, I can not support him.  I think it would be irresponsible to support any candidate without adequate information on where the candidate stands on key issues.

 

Obama’s Legacy

Every president wants to leave a permanent and lasting impression.  Something that will be remembered for generations and be taught in history class.

Most presidents have succeeded in creating a positive legacy.  Reagan will be remembered for ending the Cold War.  Kennedy for space exploration.  Lincoln for keeping a nation united through great trial.

Others have a somewhat less than positive legacy.  Carter will be remembered for the hostage crisis. Nixon will forever be the “crook.” Clinton will always be the guy that lied to Congress and got articles of impeachment brought against him.

But what will Obama’s legacy be?

I came cross this image that sums up, in a nut shell, the Obama Legacy.

The phrase, “I brought a once great nation to its knees,” when used to describe what this President has done to America is genuinely sad.

American voters need to wake up!  Stop taking life in the United States for grated.  Pay attention to what you representatives are doing and don’t just accept their lies as “business as usual.”

It’s time to put an end to “business as usual” and get back to the business of making this once great nation great once again.
