Last Debate and various thoughts

Here’s my thoughts on the last debate.
I just watched it and oh my! The one that did the best was Carson, Cruz the Trifecta ineligible candidate did good and Trump was very animated and would be a force to reckon with if elected to be president. Can you imagine him confronting world leaders? Wow.

What I found sad was all the questions concerning what we would do in Iran, Iraq, Ukraine, on and on… Unless this debate was set for foreign policy I may understand, I did miss the intro. As I get older and dig in to what is wrong with America few answer the questions correctly. Trump was the closest when he continually slammed the Bush’s for 911 and the mess in Iraq. We need to secure our boarders and quit being policeman of the world. As Mark Levin would say “There I said it”! That’s where I am at. Sure there will always be countries that need our help but how many should we be involved with and to what extent? The candidates mentioned Ukraine well let’s move on from the debate and I will tell you what a Russian women told me. After listening to her maybe we should start minding our own business.

I met recently with a financial adviser from the Ukraine. She came here 10 years ago because of a marriage. When I asked her who has more freedom America or Russian without hesitating she quickly answered Russia. She came her for a marriage and that freedom but since she arrived America’s freedom is waning and behind Russia’s. In her line of work being a financial adviser it is getting harder and harder to do it properly because of the burden of new rules and regulations. Most of what she said was a bit over my head but she told me soon in her line of work she won’t be able to charge fees and make a commission on a client and that’s just a start of things they can no longer do. I believe I heard this correctly.

She went on to say in Russia if you get stopped for a traffic violation you can pay the cop $5 or $10 and be on your way. Not here and traffic stops are way more frequent in America. House insurance and all insurance are not needed or are provided in Russia. She says Russia is the most independent country with the most natural resources. She really likes Putin and feels Trump is the best choice for our president. She thinks Trump would work with Putin.

Now about this mess in Ukraine. Viktor Yanukovych, the leader of western Ukraine who is currently in exile in Russia, was ousted because the people wanted to join the EU but he did not want to. Yanukovych warned of the dangers of being part of the EU. The people didn’t listen but now they wish they would have heeded the warnings because Yanukovych was correct. As for the eastern part of Ukraine they want to join with Russia. The country is very divided. If this is all correct, which I have no doubt it, should the US get involved?

I never thought in my lifetime Russia would be looked at as more independent and having more freedom than the US. America has slipped that far.

Let’s jump back to the debate and what is currently happening in the presidential race. Republican candidates love to quote Reagan’s 11th commandment of thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. Years previously I was in 100% agreement with that thinking. But then when elected Republicans started drifting to left I was on the attack and thought Reagan was completely wrong. But once more I changed my mind again and realized Reagan was correct. Allow me to explain.
I have come to recognize I am the true RINO and others who think constitutionally and conservatively are also. The Republican Party is just that a party. When I was attacking the Republican Party and their candidates I was in error. I was elected as a member of the Republican Central Committee with the purpose of furthering the cause of the Republican Party, got that? It was not to help elect Christian, Tea Party, Conservative, Constitutionalist candidates it was to promote the Republican Party at all costs. So Trump is goofy when stating about the establishment and not getting along with them, they are the Republican Party. If he can’t support the Republican Party and its candidates then he should as I said from the beginning run as an independent. Think about this.

Lastly we now have a legitimate businessman running for president in Donald Trump. The people have been clamoring for one since they let Ross Perot slip away. So the question is will the voters finally vote what they have been asking for or will they elect more of the same?
