Weren’t People Paying Attention in 2008 ?

I stand amazed at the number of people in our country who actually fear a Trump presidency.

I’m not sure how his presidency would all come about, but I know one thing for certain, anything would be better than what we have now.

My main question is, where were these people in 2008?


People were so enamored with the idea of having a black president nothing else entered their mind. They never even questioned his affiliations with the likes of Rev. Wright, Bill Ayres, Frank Marshall and others.

They never questioned the fact that his parents were avowed communists, or that both his father and step-father were Muslim.

Why would we elect  someone with a communist background  to the highest office in the land?

There are plenty of good hard working Muslims in the world, but electing someone of that faith in today’s world would be akin to electing a known Nazi  president in 1948. With the threat of Islamic terrorism what it is, The risks are just too high. Maybe in a few years.

Because most weren’t paying attention, we now have an administration filled with radicals and known enemies of the United States.

Now people are worried about Donald Trump.

There may be cause for that concern, but I don’t think so.

Where were these people in 2008 and why weren’t they worried then?

If we survived the last eight years, we will survive the next.

At least Donald Trump and his family portray an image of positive thinking. I haven’t seen a presidential candidate project so much positive energy since Ronald Reagan.

What has Government Done for You?

The Trumps make one believe the individual can accomplish anything they put their mind to , which is true. In their reality, there are no victims, which is also true.  We each create our own reality and by doing so create the issues we deal with on a daily basis. The trials and tribulations we each deal with are created so we can better understand ourselves and the challenges we can overcome.
