Common sense a rarity

Now that common sense is such a rarity in America, it seems that our most of our populace are just smart enough to vote and pay taxes and dumb enough to keep electing corrupt politicians and Socialists.

It is obvious that many voters lack the knowledge of Socialist failures and American history to know that a free, capitalistic, small government experiment became the greatest Nation on Earth.

Feelings are not a determining factor in America's election results, tho' they seem to play a role.  Trying is not achieving and, as most know, there are winners and losers in almost every aspect of grown-up life.  Winning and losing should definitely be taught early in one’s life instead of giving losers awards in concert with winners.  Waiting 'til a person is grown then realizing that he/she can lose is a bit late and the results of this type schooling and parenting play a big part of America's problems today.

When one votes for a program, wholeheartedly supports it under one president then reverses him/her self and states never will this happen under another president, is this politics, hate, jealousy, anti America or lack of patriotism?  I think it is a few swamp dwellers, who, with no regard for America and future generations, fear the thought of losing the very generous pay, benefits, power, prestige and false ego which they have given to themselves. Too, they know better than you what is good for you.

President Trump, billionaire businessman, gave up a lifestyle never obtained by so many in an effort to save our country from total ruin and has for two years led the fight for right.  Loyal deplorable Americans like myself will support him no matter his tweets, plain politically incorrect talk as we are true patriots living by the rule of law and The Constitution of The United States of America.
