Donald Trump knocked a homer when he began his Foreign Policy speech with:
It’s time to shake the rust off America’s foreign policy. It’s time to invite new voices and new visions into the fold, something we have to do. The direction I will outline today will also return us to a timeless principle. My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people and American security above all else. It has to be first. Has to be.
That will be the foundation of every single decision that I will make.
America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration.
Woo hoo! Say no more! Time to call in the battleships and piss on the Admiral! No more calls, please! We have a winner! Or in other words, IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
Since Reagan left office, America’s foreign policy has been a disaster zone! New World Orders that resulted in World Cluster-f*** Orders, spending trillions on unwinnable wars while sacrificing precious American military lives for not one damn thing, allowing Mexico, China and other countries to take our middle class jobs AND our money resulting in huge trade deficits, and recently appeasing Iran so they humiliate our Navy while smoothing the track for them to acquire nuclear weapons. One could try hard to create bigger foreign policy disasters and not come close to what Bush I, Clinton, W Bush, and Imam Hussein have created. All the while, America has suffered greatly.
As AWD has stated about voting for Donald Trump, I say Why The Hell Not? At this low point in American politics, a guy who loves his country and will put America and Americans first is just fine with me! Does anyone think Iran would have kidnapped our sailors or Russia would be buzzing our destroyers if Trump was in the White House?
Of course, the neocons in Washington who want a war with every country on the map and therefore spend additional trillions of dollars we don’t have to meet their quotas with their employers in the Defense Industry hate Trump’s guts! Heaven forbid we don’t use million dollar bombs on some goat-humping savage in the desert of Iraq! Their hatred of Trump is a vote of confidence for me.
Trump also says the freeloading countries in Europe and Asia must begin to pay their share for American security. He said:
Secondly, our allies are not paying their fair share, and I’ve been talking about this recently a lot. Our allies must contribute toward their financial, political, and human costs, have to do it, of our tremendous security burden. But many of them are simply not doing so.
They look at the United States as weak and forgiving and feel no obligation to honor their agreements with us. In NATO, for instance, only 4 of 28 other member countries besides America, are spending the minimum required 2 percent of GDP on defense. We have spent trillions of dollars over time on planes, missiles, ships, equipment, building up our military to provide a strong defense for Europe and Asia.
The countries we are defending must pay for the cost of this defense, and if not, the U.S. must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves. We have no choice.
What fresh thinking! Thoughts from a businessman who realizes when America is getting screwed but not getting kissed and it has to stop! And it’s not the Washington Establishment who pays for all this madness, it’s the middle class taxpayer who is stretched beyond belief trying to keep his head above water! Trump appears to have their interests clearly in his sights. About damn time we have such a leader!
I won’t repeat the entire speech but it is linked here. You need to read it to realize that Trump may just be the man for his time. And the man that America needs at our lowest ebb.
The American electorate is angry and changing the way things are going to be done. This won’t be done overnight but it can start with a President Trump who isn’t afraid to embarrass, call out and defeat a corrupt Establishment who has put America in these dire straights!
Trump says “peace and prosperity” are our goals. Amen! He will also rebuild our overextended military by ending the massive trade deficits we face with enemy nations who use America as their ATM. Reagan rebuilt the military and defeated communism. With a strong military and economy, America will once again be feared by the world’s evil forces.
I believe a President Cruz would have us back fighting savages in the Middle East only to see them vanish into crowds as they did in Afghanistan. We would waste more money and lives and again achieve nothing that benefits Americans. As for liberating Syria and other Muslim countries, let them eat sand. As for protecting American soil, the easiest way to accomplish that is to keep savages from Muslim countries from entering America. Trump said he would do that as well.
AWD voted for Cruz in the Texas primary but I’m more than happy to change my support to Donald Trump. OK, so he’s pro-choice. BFD! Abortion is the least of America’s problems at this time! I admire his common sense, patriotism, business acumen, and willingness to go toe to toe with America’s enemies foreign and in Washington!
Screw the Establishment! Run them out of DC on rails. Let’s bring a leader who for once puts his country above his own interests. Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?
