In the lexicon of new language development, trampled is being displaced by "Trumpled."
Rather than "the world according to Garth" we are now in the midst of the world as seen through the eyes of Trump. Not to be discounted is the lack of appreciation for, or understanding of, the pervasive influence of those termed the deplorables — who are Trump led.
On the global stage, undoubtedly, Trump speaks boldly regarding the issue of America First.
This pleases many who are not globalists in their orientation. But, this misses a point. Our support is essential to other nations not just those in the developing world, but also to others who are dependent on us for many things, like trade. It's refreshing that Germany, Great Britain, and others, appreciate Trump's "gauntlet," and that they must step up their pace.
The calls for membership in the U.N., NATO and other services which the U.S. has lopsidedly supported are tempered by an understanding that membership requires equitable, reciprocal financial support.
The sad thing is the lack of development and filling of positions in the Trump adminstration. A scenario caused caused by the distractions such as whether Russians were involved in the elections of 2016.
This misses the point; malfeasance was committed by the Clintons on several levels involving the Russians. The Obama administration's deals were also not clearly defined nor disclosed to the American people. We have yet to investigate what we do know in that regard. We are obsessed with trying to find things not documented.
It is now clear corruption occurs on both sides of the political aisle. It's time we cleaned house and not merely drained the swamp.
Fomrer U.S. Attorney General Elliot Richardson was dismissed at the behest of then-Richard Nixon during the Watergate era. Yet, we survived, but it was not a pleasant experience for Americans.
One thing is clear. President Trump will separate the executive offices out from the rest of the government, making its three branches more autonomous. The lack of involvement (at the top levels) by those possessing extensive government experience. Thus, the focus of leadership is too much on the rich (though they can articulate problems, they can no longer recall the pain of poverty or what it means to be well-grounded in one's community).
The Trump tenure will dictate that if people are to be elected to Congress in certain districts, some of the language and messages must be better crafted.
Party loyalty is suspect. Those who have played the game to get ahead find themselves taking preference over those who have loyally carried our torch, and are now being decisively disadvantaged. The Republican National Committee (RNC) is attempting to feel its way, given that Trump is the head of the Republican party and members must find a way to accommodate him, while maintaining ties with the rank and file of our party.
Dissing of in the establishment comes at a price, one which has yet to be fully calculated.
A return to messaging on immigration, healthcare reform, and infrastructure repair is essential to success at the local and state levels.
Jobs which are leaving us can come back if we prioritize repairs to bridges first, establishing more immigration courts for all states, and support public health department— who can pick up on access issues in healthcare. They could use an infusion of the funds which have been diverted to a private entity — Planned Parenthood.
Keep one's eye on the creeping erosion of basic principles which undermine what was promised citizens. Why have Hb2 when there are Indian reservations, ghettos whose citizens can use these jobs? If we give them fair wages, healthcare, and transportation (like what is provided to guest workers) we would improve the plight of these Americans.
The Democrats promise a better deal — which is bunk. The Republicans must be committed to a fair deal, one which puts its citizens first.
