In 2016, I voted for Trump, mainly because I didn’t believe Hillary Clinton was the right candidate for our country. I had been a Ted Cruz supporter up until he dropped out of the race.

My greatest concern about voting for Trump was that I didn’t know what he would do once in office. There was no voting record to go by as there is with candidates who have served in the legislative branch.

Being a former Cruz supporter, I like candidates who choose their words carefully and think before they speak. Obviously, President Trump isn’t the most polished speaker. But he is a doer. He gets things done, in spite of daily undermining and fierce resistance from the left, the media, the establishment and the Never-Trumpers.

Trump has fulfilled more of his campaign promises than any president in recent history. From what I’ve studied about former presidents, Trump is similar to Teddy Roosevelt with regard to getting things done that need to be done. Teddy believed in a strong military and showing the world what a great military we have, as does Trump.

The sanctimonious left pooh-poohed Trump’s patriotic military parades as a waste of money. I personally have enjoyed seeing the prowess of our military on display. My heart swells with pride at the amazing synchronized flyovers and seeing all the different types of military equipment our country has at its disposal. Trump knows the people of our country need to be reminded of our great strength, but that our greatest strength comes from God.

As we watch the malcontents of our country burning, stealing and vandalizing other people’s property, I see a bunch of spoiled brats who probably weren’t disciplined by their parent(s) and taught to respect authority as they were growing up. I see people who probably haven’t had to work to earn what they’ve gotten and therefore don’t appreciate or respect the labor and discipline that goes into being a responsible citizen of our great country. I don’t understand how people could take that much time off from work and still have a job when they get back home. Oh, wait a minute — I forgot — they’re getting paid to protest.

As we approach Election Day, expect the attacks against President Trump to grow more desperate and outlandish. For the sake of your sanity, limit your daily intake of “news.”

Trump has earned the right to be re-elected. His record stands in stark contrast to Biden’s. I don’t see how anyone could vote for someone who is not physically or mentally able to run the country and whose chameleonic running mate dropped out of the race before the primaries started. If you plan to vote for the Biden ticket, ask yourself, “Who is the real candidate behind the ticket?”

I highly recommend – unless you have a good reason to vote early or by absentee ballot — that you show up at your polling place to vote to re-elect Trump on Tuesday, November 3.

Interesting History lesson for today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwPEWiNadhA

Every day the dimocrats (they are dim) come up with another attack on the President. True or false, it doesn't matter - they need their fix to justify their blind rage. None can see the big picture that is the overall wellness and strength of the nation that matters.

The sickness of dimocrat cities rioting and burning is Trump's fault for just being alive. The raging forest fires are climate change problems though the forests haven't been properly managed, old trees have died and not been harvested, fire lanes have not been maintained, and seasonal drought is something that has never happened before. This is just childish irresponsible behavior by the dimocrats. How can we keep sending such fools to run our government. Lets let the adults run the country.

You are in the throes of a cult and should seek help with deprogramming. See Michael Cohen (and many others) for help getting out. Good luck and Godspeed, friend🙏🏼

This is typical of the childish response when a Democrat is challenged.

Not exactly, Goat Boy. We all know Sparky here is a functionary of the local Frederick County Republican Party. He is a diehard conservative who wants "his" America back. He is stuck in the 1950s where people (who aren't him) knew their place.

Whistle Dixie

David Sparkman, you are correct. Mapping out "wildfires" across the West, it doesn't take much to notice that these fires are almost exclusively contained within the borders of the USA. Also, given the number of arrests of arsonists, it's even more proof that the fires are not natural wildfires, or "climate change" that have taken place over the past decades.

Over and over again, we see nothing but radical manuevers, hoaxes, lies, crimes, and political plots to destroy President Trump, and along with it, our Nation. We live in historic times, and within the midst of people who hate America, capitalism, and freedom.

Looking at some of the ridiculous comments below demonstrates how the Leftists operate. Today, the topic is about Trump's poor performance at a Town Hall. (Did we expect a single positive comment?) What is telling is the subject, word choice, and 'hit topic' that these minions have been instructed to use today. Tomorrow, it will be a different 'hit topic'. Trump, in his Presidency, has performed better than any other President in my lifetime. But the Leftist media, and the Leftist radicals who want to convert America into a communist country, have nothing good to say of President Trump.

We are, indeed, watching an attempted regime change in America. We have a Republic, and Benjamin Franklin wrote of its formation, and whether We The People could keep it a Republic.

Donald J. Trump is an American through and through. Although the Obama administration weaponized a number of Federal agencies and sought to destroy Trump, the Presidential candidate (and then Trump, the US President), they failed to achieve their final goal. They truly believed Hillary Clinton would win the Presidency and they would not be held accountable for their treasonous acts. But The Outsider, Donald J. Trump, won! And he will win again in 2020! The Left is throwing everything imaginable at this Presidential election. They are beyond desperate -- they are frothing and crazed. And this is why polls are not being publicized -- the Leftist media sees the horrible results, despite the poll biases. They see how Joey Biden's "rally" events have few to zero attendees. They hear how Joey Biden can't even formulate a complete sentence, or keep a train of thought. Their biggest attempt to throw the Presidential Election is in less than 2 months. They have managed to situate armed ANTIFA, BLMers, and RevComs within Democrat-run cities -- forcing the general public to see how bad and frightening people can be when they don't get what they want. They have presented their violence under the guise of "black lives matter", but no one sees this as a social justice issue. People know what it is -- domestic terrorism.

Joey Biden has accomplished nothing but personal financial gain in all of his political years. He is corrupt, as is his son, Hunter Biden. The Left is desperate and wants The Ukraine problems and Burisma to disappear. The Left wants the videos of Joey Biden's very uncomfortable girl-groping to disappear. The Left wants Joey Biden's bumbling statements and irrational word salads to disappear. So they attack all-things-Trump to deflect and force focus elsewhere. Their behavior is the worst that America has EVER witnessed.

Americans will vote for President Trump. Law enforcement will vote for President Trump. Patriots will vote for President Trump. Democrats who walked away from their Party will vote for President Trump. Blacks will vote for President Trump. Browns will vote for President Trump. EVERYONE who believes in law & order will vote for President Trump. 2020 will be a landslide....unless there is the dreaded voter fraud, that many believe will take place.

Once thing is certain though. Joey Biden will not become President....he suffers from Dementia. The Left is already floating their plans, which they are infamous for.... And yesterday proved it. Yesterday, the "Harris-Biden Administration, as both Kamala Harris and Joey Biden specifically stated, is the Democrat's plan. If evil reigns, then this will be the last Presidential vote in our Republic. America will be lost if they are seated within the White House.

"SHOCK: ABC Hails ‘Empathetic’ Trump’s ‘Calm,’ ‘Pretty Good’ Town Hall"

In a surprising twist, Nightline journalists and guests at ABC hailed Donald Trump’s Tuesday night town hall with voters and host George Stephanopoulos as “pretty good,” showcasing the President’s “empathy” and “calm.” The most shocking praise came from veteran Democrat Rahm Emanuel who saw strong “message discipline” from Trump.

Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl reacted to the 90 minute event in Pennsylvania by complimenting: “On balance, this was a pretty good event for Donald Trump. He got to show another side of himself, an empathetic side, talking about the incredible death toll from COVID.”

Emanuel, a former Democratic operative, Obama official, and mayor of Chicago, offered the most surprising praise:

He showed incredible message discipline in the face of adversity. He didn't get knocked off his game. Now, do I think he was factually correct? No. Do I think if I looked at that — I would make sure in real time that the campaign from Biden is putting out constant fact correctors.

Something must have changed overnight. On Wednesday’s Good Morning America, Stephanopoulos underlined, “Grilled on health care, race, taking tough questions on his handling of the pandemic." He bizarrely added, “That was a different kind of forum for President Trump last night, taking questions from voters who haven’t yet made up their minds. Some supported him in the past and this is not something he’s done very, very often.”

But, of course, Trump often does these sort of events. It’s Biden who doesn’t.

Dicksee: News?

Oliver Darcy writes: "I found it rather maddening to watch the George Stephanopoulos special with Trump. Throughout the 90-minute town hall, he failed to ask obvious follow-up questions as POTUS rambled and spread misinfo. For instance, Trump repeatedly said that 'a lot of people think the masks are not good.' After letting him get away with that statement a couple times, Stephanopoulos finally asked Trump who has made that claim. Trump replied that 'waiters' had, handing the moderator an easy follow-up on a platter -- no pun intended. But Stephanopoulos apparently didn't find that answer worth interrogating, and he moved on. It was frustrating to see, especially after Jonathan Swan showed how effective it can be to just ask basic follow-ups."

>> Darcy adds: "I pictured viewers at home shouting at their TV sets. 'You have a health plan ready to go? WHY HAVEN'T YOU UNVEILED IT?' And so on..."

News?

Daniel Dale's recap of a cringe-worthy moment toward the end of the town hall: "A crying voter tells Trump at length about how her mom, a fellow immigrant, died of cancer, and asks a question on her mom's behalf about immigration. Trump repeatedly talks about how her mom died of 'Covid.'"

Spock Here

News? Ellesia Blaque, an English professor at Kutztown University, brought up health care: Blaque was born with sarcoidosis and said she'll die without the medication covered by her expensive insurance plan. Blaque asked what he is doing to protect people like her, and he dodged.

"He didn't answer my question," Blaque said.

Spock Here

News? Paul Tubiana of Bethlehem, PA was the first questioner. He asked: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2016. I'm a conservative, pro-life and diabetic. I've had to dodge people who don't care about social distancing and wearing face masks. I thought you were doing a good job with the pandemic response until about May 1. Then you took your foot off the gas pedal. Why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus?"

Trump's initial response: "Well, we really didn't, Paul." And then he blamed China and promised that "we're within weeks of getting" a vaccine. "He didn't answer anything," Tubiana said. "He was lying through his teeth."

What did Obama do?

Obamacare was written by big pharma and those from the health insurance sector, then presented by Jonathan Gruber who STILL will not reveal how much money he made while fashioning Obamacare. Remember how Obama touted "If you like your healthcare plan, you get to keep your healthcare plan." And Gruber? Gruber said that Obamacare only passed due to the 'stupidity' of the American voter and a lack of 'transparency.' Obamacare was forced on America, then tried by the Supreme Court, and declared a mandated tax, you idiot.

Whistle Dixie

Spock, clearly you're not following along. One of the HUGE problems with our healthcare system is that Obama and the Left rammed socialized medicine at us. It has not worked, and it never will. Obamacare created even more health insurance problems. But you and other Leftist minions blame Trump.

Obama never addressed the enormous increases in pharmaceuticals. But blame Trump! Trump is working on big pharma drug overpricing on America's drug pricing schedules -- this is an issue to any American who must actually PAY for prescriptions and not get them for free on Medicaid. Big Pharma allows their drugs to be purchased much more cheaply in every country but the USA, so America is essentially involved in the co-pay to reduce drug prices abroad.

Trump has already negotiated greatly reduced pricing for insulin for diabetics who are on Medicare. His administration is now working to lower the cost of insulin for those who are not on Medicare.

The dirty little secrets here are that more than half of Americans are quite obese and not fit or healthy. MILLIONS of Americans are diabetics -- and this is due to poor lifestyle choices. Lifestyle choices are personal choices, not the choices of our government....although Michelle Obama tried to make them be so. Her program was a big failure.

Trump showed what a complete dumpster fire he is at that town hall meeting. He shows that every living day, of course, but last night was just bonkers. Anyone who votes for him is in complete denial of reality.

Whistle Dixie

In general, Spock, the Town Hall was not a pro-Trump rally, nor was it an event that was unbiased. This is the typical modus operandii that Donald Trump has had to contend with. Questions are formulated as 'gotcha' type questions, individuals who have questions have been hand-selected and planted.

That black woman who was complaining about her expensive drugs is flat-out ungrateful, but she's a Leftist, so there's that. She is a Professor and she demanded that Trump listen to her. Imagine if someone like that was put in front of Obama....or Biden. (No, you can't imagine it because it would never happen!) That woman was complaining because her prescriptions are too expensive. Yet she has a tenured position as a professor at a college and she can speak freely (but only because she is anti-Trump). She is gainfully employed. She has paid-for health insurance. Her health insurance benefits are part of her employer's package. And with that there is a type of collective bargaining afforded to her employer. I suppose she never thought to complain to her HR department. No, it's much more dramatic to take her complaint to our US President.

Everybody has a gripe....but how many people show concern for others. Looks to me like the only complaints you offered up were personal gripes. And not one of them are the 'news'.

By the way, when will Joey Biden do a Town Hall? I've heard he won't. He's feeble-minded, so that's okay.

I'm hoping he'll come through with a few debates, though. I'm not counting on him to show up....but I am hoping to see at least one. Biden will be down for the count in record history.

Spock Here

There is a town hall for Biden tomorrow night...fyi. I saw that on the news. Since I am but "an idiot" I am certain you don't want a response, but, some of your points are actually points of political ideology, which is refreshing, instead of the Korrupt Konspiracy Krud that is concocted for you. That might be a useful discussion, but, oh well.

DavidSparkman

The grateful American people maybe?

Bryan.the.Nuri

Just because we have a President that talks as brash , impudent, and undiplomatically as you doesn't mean anyone is grateful. It used to be that we expected more from a President than the local yahoo. I guess the standards slipped.

shinyhappypeople

“Being a former Cruz supporter, I like candidates who choose their words carefully and think before they speak.” Oh okay. I guess we’ll have to take your word for it and not your deed, since Trump called Cruz’s wife ugly and blamed his father for helping assassinate JFK. I guess you did say “carefully”, not truthfully. But yesterday the lying dotard retweeted a comment that Joe Biden is a pedophile AND it was reported that women in ICE detention were given Unnecessary Hysterectomies- which has all kinds of World war II Germany written all over it. But you get to feel exhilarated when jets fly over...so might must make right, no?!? Thanks for sharing, but lying about a deadly communicable disease so you can be reelected is not a trait any of us should forgive in our President.
