It is Independence Day!

Our independence - our freedom - is what we celebrate today. Thank you to all who did serve, are serving, and will serve in the protection of our great nation.

You don’t have to agree with me politically, but you do need to respect my opinion.

The Dems told me to give our last president a chance when he was elected. I kept my mouth shut, sat back, and watched as he drove our nation towards the communism and socialism with his ridiculous policies. I chose to take the high road. I did not scream at legislators I saw on airplanes, on restaurants, or in the grocery store. I did not yell at my friends whose left leaning tendencies actually made me crazy. I did my research, and I used the power of the vote to help change the direction our country was headed - as did thousands of others.

You cannot spend yourself into prosperity. Lower taxes are good for everyone. The unemployment rate is as the lowest it has been in more than a decade! People need to understand that there’s no such thing as a free lunch - the government only has the cash you pay in tax to spend. The government doesn’t make money - it only spends it and it spends YOUR money.

You cannot protect the nation without using the all of the laws available - even if the consequences mean separating children from the adults they are with. Nobody likes it, but it’s done for the safety of all involved - and this has been done since 1997, so really... zip your lip!

If protecting our citizens means building a wall, so be it. High fences make for good neighbors. I have a fence around my property, as do many of my Dem friends... what’s good for us, should be good enough for the nation, right? I know that celebrities and millionaires all have walls around their homes - why can’t the nation have one? Those who live along the border want the wall... shouldn’t their opinion be more valid than those of us who live elsewhere? You don’t like strangers uninvited in your yard or your home - well, I’d not like them in my country, thanks. You want to come here? Do it the right way - like my family did.

My children are in the armed forces. They are far more comfortable with President Trump as Commander in Chief. They feel he listens, supports them, and is working to give them what they need to do their jobs and do them well.

So, to my Dem friends, please give the man a chance to do his job. Stop listening to CNN and hype media. Do some research about the issues. And don’t hate me for my politics - I don’t begrudge you yours.
