If you thought Trump getting elected was going to solve all your problems …

And if you think he can fix all the problems in America right now … please, please, PLEASE …

Wake up.

You are wrong.

And no matter how much you believe “your guy” getting in office is going to fix things — it won’t happen.

Trump is not “draining the swamp” and I’m as happy as can be that it’s not Hillary in office, but you have to understand …

Trump Is NOT Your Savior!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an election like this one …

People were more divided than ever before, but except for maybe Obama, I’ve never seen so much “hope” put into one candidate before.

In fact, just check out this one comment from a reader on the blog here:

“My MAIN support of Trump was out of FEAR. Clinton SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME!!!! In my mind, a scenario went like someone would claim my weapon at my door, I would use it to fire my refusal, they would shoot me down, and Clinton would win another political victory.

I truly was afraid of the possibily that Clintonh would win. DEATHLY AFRAID. From FEAR, I screwed many things in my life, paid a $20 taxi ride, all so I could vote for Trump at the poll station. I viewed this as an emergency that reqirred my IMMEDIATE attention, and that is what it got. I have high blood pressure, and I was in PANIC mode until I was SURE that Trump had won.

Note that I was in PANIC again when I thought that the electorate could have denied him his goal. I was dismally ill on that night.”

Many people have been incredibly emotionally invested in the outcome of the recent presidential election and especially in Trump.

In short, we are in the honeymoon period where many people think he is a savior that will fix all of America’s problems.

Sorry.

That’s not gonna happen …

Trump is NOT Going To “Create Jobs”

First off, no president — Trump included — “creates jobs”.

That’s what you, me and the guy down the street do.

The ONLY thing that a president can do that could even reomotely allow him to take credit for “creating jobs” is to get the heck out of the way!

On that point, if Trump actually does what he has promised … which is cut taxes and regulations … he may create a more ideal “pro job environment” but he is still impotent when it comes to creating jobs.

Guess who creates jobs?

The guy in your community who owns the farm, the corner store, or the truck and does handyman work.

Or You do.

That’s America. That’s the source of jobs.

Trump has nothing to do with it. Obama had nothing to do with it.

You want a job? Find one.

Can’t find one? Create one by starting a business.

In short, don’t hold your breath — not much will change with Trump in office — if you need a job find it yourself or create one because he won’t do it for you.

Trump Is NOT Going To “Drain The Swamp”

Remember Trump saying this to Hillary?

“But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.”

It was just seconds after Trump won when he said this in his victory speech:

“TRUMP: I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. (APPLAUSE) She congratulated us — it’s about us — on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. I mean, she — she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.

(APPLAUSE) I mean that very sincerely. (APPLAUSE)

Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division; have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.”

And Politico explains how Trump is already backing away from the “Drain The Swamp” campaign promise too:

“President-elect Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington of corruption, but now that he’s preparing to move into the White House, Newt Gingrich said the Manhattan real estate mogul is looking to distance himself from that message.

“I’m told he now just disclaims that. He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore,” the former House Speaker and close Trump adviser said of the “drain the swamp” message in an NPR interview published Wednesday morning.

Trump’s Cabinet and other high-level appointments seem to have deviated somewhat from his “drain the swamp” message. After attacking Democrat Hillary Clinton regularly throughout the campaign for being too close to Wall Street banks, Trump has put three former Goldman Sachs executives in prominent White House positions, including Steven Mnuchin as treasury secretary, Steve Bannon as chief White House strategist and Gary Cohn as the director of the National Economic Council.”

In other words, Trump is surrounding himself with the same bankers and Wall Street Executives, war hawks and other financial and global power elites that have been running the FedGov behind the scenes for some time now.

Trump Can NOT Fix The Debt-Ridden, Economic Mess That Is The Federal Government

This is not a knock against Trump.

This is just basic math.

Nobody can fix the Federal Government and its economic mess.

To quote Richard Maybury, from his latest Early Warning Report newsletter:

“No one can fix the federal government. Its unfunded liabilities, which are the money it does not have, to pay all the obligations politicians have incurred, is $104 trillion. That’s $874,000 per taxpayer. An average family of four is on the hook for $3.5 million over and above
present taxes.

Hopeless, entirely hopeless. In 1966, economist Howard Kershner warned, “When a self-governing people confer upon their government the power to take from some and give to others, the process will not stop until the last bone of the last taxpayer is picked bare.”

The only thing to do is stand aside and let the federal government go ahead and commit economic suicide. Do not get in the way.”

Keep in mind, as Maybury says often, the Federal Government and the country are not the same thing. The country, America, can survive without the FedGov.

At the end of the day, the FedGov collects TRILLIONS of dollars every year in taxes and spends it all, and goes into debt to spend more.

It’s hopeless. There are 4 million government employees who will not go away quietly. And then there’s the defense spending …

Trump Is NOT Going To Win The Global War On Terror

One of Trump’s promises is to “rebuild our depleted military”.

Umm …

To quote NationalPriorities.org, “In fiscal year 2015, military spending is projected to account for 54 percent of all federal discretionary spending, a total of $598.5 billion. Military spending includes: all regular activities of the Department of Defense; war spending; nuclear weapons spending; international military assistance; and other Pentagon-related spending.”

And also (emphasis mine)… “U.S. military expenditures are roughly the size of the next seven largest military budgets around the world, combined.”

We don’t exactly have a “depleted” military.

The reason that the “Global War on Terror” has not been won and will never be won is because you can not fight a tactic. You can fight a person, a people, or group of people but “Terror” is just a tactic.

Just like the “War on Poverty” and the “War on Drugs”, the “War on Terror” can not be won.

It’s an ambiguous term and mission statement so that the FedGov can pursue whatever agenda they desire anywhere in the world with little accountability to anyone.

Speaking constitutionally, National Defense is a legitimate function of the FedGov, but it’s not as if our military is lacking …

If it was actually being used for defense.

Instead the U.S. Military is currently involved in GWOT in the middle east while simultaneously promising to back NATO against Russia and arguing with China over islands in the South China Sea.

It’s spread thin if anything.

Increasing defense spending will of course increase the deficit and make the FedGov’s spending problems worse.

Instead, Trump should stick to his promises on the campaign trail, namely …

“We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments. …In our dealings with other countries we will seek shared interests wherever possible…”

… and this …

“We don’t want to have a depleted military because we’re all over the place fighting in areas that we shouldn’t be fighting in. It’s not going to be depleted any longer,” he said.

But I don’t think that’s gonna happen.

In Summary, Trump is NOT Your Savior, You Are!

Look, I’m not bashing Trump.

I think out of all the Presidents I’ve seen in the last 20 years, I sincerely like him the best.

But he’s no savior.

Because at the end of the day he’s just the “figure head” at the front of the FedGov machine that’s working behind him.

He has no real power.

And the FedGov has become a leviathon that exists simply to feed and grow itself like an insidious cancer.

No one man can change the direction of the machine enough to positively affect your life.

Yes, I’m beyond thrilled that Hillary is not heading for the White House. 

In other words, you’re still on your own.

But that’s the beauty of living in America! Even with all the crap we’re dealing with, it’s still one of the free-est nations on earth and you can still change your life with your own brain and your own two hands.

So stop waiting for Trump to save you and get to saving yourself.

  1. He already has drained the biggest piece of crap that thought she was going to the W.H. hopefully SHE IS GOING TO THE BIG HOUSE !!!

      • Don’t tell me you’ve gone left on us. Hitlery would have finished Obama’s job of turning this country inside out!
        As far as draining the swamp, it’s in progress with some of the biggest dimwits and thieves. And the feds are still investigating the Clintons and the trust fund the built for Chelsea. The one they call the Clinton Foundation.

          • Caleb… You are the one that needs to wake up. Trump has done more for America as President-Elect than Obama & Bush has done in 16 years.

          • And?

            You’re debating that he’s better than Obama/Bush?

            Sure. So far … (he hasn’t actually done anything yet, remember that)

            But yes, I fully expect him to be much much better than both.

            My point — and only point — is that he is not that big of a deal. And if you expect him to “change” much then you’re going to be disappointed. Period.

            You and you only are going to make your life better in the next 4 years. Nobody else.

            Judging by your emotional response — you still have way too much hope in an external source of change.

      • It’s not the President’s job to investigate or prosecute. He should stay out of it and leave it to the FBI and the AG. Which Obama didn’t do – since Obama had a personal interest in the outcome, which the President should not have. He was, we may well say, an “interested party” because he had a direct involvement in the some of the activities under investigation.

  2. YOU PEOPLE ARE FULL OF SH*T, Trump is not our Savior but he is 1000% better than Obama who must be your hero,he will correct all of the damage Obama has done,so get used to being great again.

  3. Caleb, I am a little disappointed in you. The only saving I EXPECTED to get from President Trump was saving me from 4 years of pure insanity under Mrs. Clinton. And as far as NOT bashing our new president, I think you did a horrible job. Just my opinion. Do we really need to be reminded that he is not “God”? I don’t think so. You did not present any information that shows a “positive” side for Trump winning the election. Why not? Your only redeeming paragraph was the last one. I’ve been a long fan of you and your products. Please don’t turn things around.

    Sincerely,
    Bruce

    • I’ve written plenty in praise of Trump – this is just a reminder for you and everyone who reads it to not put much faith in a figurehead.

      • You SAY Trump is not our savior, but he IS!!!! He became such when he won the Presidency.

        HE SAVED US FROM OBAMA THIRD TERM. HE SAVED US FROM ANOTHER CLINTON DISASTER!!!!

        Further, he is on Our Side, REGARDLESS of what he is actually able to do. I believe he will be able to do quite a bit.

        I am not blind to his limitations. Only a dictator could do what his campaign promises to claim. But I TRULY believe he will TRY.

        Yeah, I know Yoda says “Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’!”

        But I personally believe there is no “do” without a “try”. How does one “do” WITHOUT a “try”?

        “TRY” is the attempt. “DO” is the success. Faith makes the try. Do is God’s granting of the success.

        Trump will TRY. That is all I truly want. He MAY succeed. That is GRAVY!!!!

  4. I don’t think people (certainly not I) are saying Trump is a or the “saviour” Only one is my saviour, Jesus Christ…however, even in churches we have leaders, pastors and ministers who held guide and LEAD…I havent seen one person, including you or I, do anything that would remotely change things for the last 8 years-all we and the majority have done is bitch, bitch, bitch and post.

    The man is not even in office yet, give him a chance before you start with the “he’s not going to do this or that” That’s the speech I often hear of a disgruntled libertarian who blames Israel and jews for all of America’s troubles.

    Yes, he picked out “more of the same” for his cabinet, who did you want him to pick? Broke ass Bubba-joe from down the street who has no experience washing windows?
    Trump is an outsider, he needs insiders and rich insiders to help this nation recover-I doubt he will, as Obama has done, allow anyone to leave tire tracks on his face and do more harm to Americans. the buck stops with him-I just believe that whole heartedly.

    As far as jobs-he never said HE was going to “create” jobs – where did you see that he said that?
    Obama said he was going to CREATE shovel ready jobs.
    Trump brought back jobs, Trump did that, you don’t have to give him credit but it’s true anyhow.
    Trump is being approached by CEO’s to stop American jobs from leaving the country, Trump is being approached by CEO’s of companies wanting to spending billions of dollars for the creation of additional jobs (oh that must be where you got it from, but it was said by the CEO not Trump)….and all this is being done BEFORE he’s even official in office.

    I believe what he says he going to do, especially giving back gun rights, because I trust him and I believe God is helping him, not because I think Trump is a “saviour” (which, by the way is insulting to my intelligence and faith in God). That’s my opinion.

      • Those jobs will start coming when the EPA is reigned in (preferably terminated) along with all the other alphabet agencies trying to justify their jobs. Just like emperor barry, Trump has a pen and a phone. Also just like barry said: “I’m President. I can do what I want.” It will be easy. Repeal all of barry’s EOs, rules and regulations and the jobs will come back. And I’m willing to bet that will “create” more than 25 million jobs. Mark my words, Trump has a sixth sense about such things.

        • Trump’s no doubt an amazing business man …

          But I don’t think even he yet understands that the FedGov is NOT run like a business.

          In business, Trump would order something to those below him, and it would get done or “you’re fired!” right? Try that with the 4 million gov employees sucking off the tax payer teet … fat chance.

          We’ll see.

          But yes, if he could actually succeed in eliminating useless alphabet agencies (read: ALL of them) — then the de-regulation would do more than make America great again …

  5. How about giving TRUMP and his cabinet a chance before “nay-saying”. This type of rhetoric is what gives SCUMOCRATS and the “LIBERAL lame stream media” their ammo. Lets keep a least a LITTLE OPTIMISM HERE!!

  6. I can not Thank You enough on your very honest observations. Few are willing to look beyond their emotions at the situation this Republic is now in. Can President elect Trump help guide this nation back?, that remains to be seen; and like you, I pray that he will.
    But that still leaves my life up to me, what I do to increse my borders is up to me alone. I will rely on the providence of my Real Savior as my guide and provider, because, to date, he has.
    As for others, I hope and Pray that they too will use ambition, their intellegence and their hands, grit, and self determination to become the success’es they strive to be. Equally relying on the Providence of God for their guiding light.
    That was truly what made this Nation /Republic Great from the begining, and it again can repeat that effort and outcome.
    May the People Unite with these ideals for this Nation and receate the Nation /Republic the Founders originally left us.
    Together we can Reclaim and Restore that.

  7. YOU’RE RIGHT TRUMP IS NOT OUR SAVIOR ,GOD IS OUR SAVIOR. BUT GOD CHOSE TRUMP AS A TOOL TO SAVE US FROM POLITICIANS TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE PEOPLE GENERATING JOBS. BUT IT’S TRUMP WHO WILL DO AWAY WITH ALL REGULATION AND LAWS THAT ARE MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR US THE PEOPLE TO TO CONTINUE OPERATING THE EXISTING COMPANIES THAT CREATE JOBS, OR CREATE NEW ONES. THAT’S WHY COMPANIES ARE MOVING TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

  8. Wow I never heard such a negative comment coming from a person that claims to support our gun rights and other rights. You are sounding like a Demoncrat If Trump at least gets the economy going then all the other things will come together. Hell I could do better than Obama or Clinton. Where have you been for the past eight years.

    • That’s my point Trump can not “get the economy going”

      But yes, he will be vastly better than Obama and Clinton lol

  9. Good grief Caleb. At least give the guy a chance before you start telling us what PRESIDENT TRUMP can or can not, will or will not do. I used to enjoy your articles, however, you are beginning to sound more and more like just another libtard news station. You could at least wait until the inauguration before you begin your analysis. May have to rethink my subscription to your news letter. Sorry.
    Molon Labe.

    • Well there is one thing. CONGRESS runs the country, not the President. So basically, don’t have faith in Career Politicians. I believe that’s actually what you’re trying to say Caleb? Am I correct?

  10. I never thought he was a savior. Just 2000 times better than Hillary Clinton. To be honest with you I’m tired of people drawing conclusions about me than labeling me when they know nothing about me. One thing I concluded from your in put is you think you are smarter than the rest of us and feel we need your advice to get through life. . So let me give you unsolicited advice and labeling even though that is something I try not to do. Your a know it all SMARTASS. Oh by the way why don’t you worry about Jill Stein tampering with the voting machines for the NEXT ELECTION While supposedly doing a recount.

  11. We do have a Savior! HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST! In saying that… I myself along with many other true believing Christians (meaning not just saying and claiming to be a christian in name only, but truly having a personal relationship thru the Holy Spirit baring wittness… within one’s own spirit of being…THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT INDEED… IS COME FROM GOD, AND IS GOD MANIFESTED THRU HIS SON JESUS CHRIST… AND JESUS PROMISED TO SEND THE HOLY SPIRIT AFTER DYING ON THE CROSS FOR MANKINDS SINS (WHO BY REPENTING OF THEIR SINS AND ACCEPTING JESUS INTO THEIR HEARTS AND LIFE… WOULD TAKE ON GOD’S SACRIFICED SON, AS PAYMENT FOR THEIR OWN SINS… INSTEAD OF PAYING FOR THEIR OWN SINS AFTER THIS WORLD ENDS, OR WE JUST DIE…. WHERE JESUS IS THAN… ALWAYS LIVING INSIDE US… WITHIN OUR HEARTS AND WITHIN OUR BODY… WHO ACCEPTED HIM… OUR VERY BODY THEN BECOMES HIS HOLY TEMPLE GOD/JESUS INHABITS) In Gods plan of Salvation We must be born again… and that VERY BIRTH takes place… That very moment… WE ASK JESUS TO COME INTO OUR HEARTS… AND ACCEPT JESUS’S PAYMENT OF SIN… JESUS IS A PERECT GENTLEMAN AND WILL NOT FORCE HIMSELF UPON ANY OF US… LIKE THE DEVIL GOD ALLAH, HAS BEEN PUSHED ONTO PEOPLE, OR THEY WILL LOSE THEIR HEAD OR LIFE!!!! ANYONE WHO ASK JESUS INTO THEIR LIFE… NO! SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT OF MERCY FROM GOD..THAT WE MIGHT ESCAPE HELLS DAMNATION OF SINS COST… WHERE WE ALL HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD…THERE IS NOT ONE HUMANBEING THAT HAS NOT SINNED AND NOT ONE HUMAN BEING GOING TO HEAVEN WITHOUT THE SAVIOR’S GIFT OF SALVATION TO ETERNAL LIFE… THRU JESUS CHRIST…. JESUS THEN WILL COME IN AND BECOME OUR EVERYTHING THAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING FOR… WHERE THE JOY OF OUR LORD BECOMES OUR STRENGTH TO PRESS ON… IN AND THRU… THE HARDEST CHALLENGES OF LIFE’S SEWERS AND FEARS OF LIVING IN… NO MATTER WHATS GOING ON IN OUR WORLD. JESUS PROMISES… NEVER TO LEAVE US! NOR WILL HE FORSAKE US! In fact JESUS TEACHES US… in matters of any battle… To pray and stand still and JESUS Himself will fight for us!
    You are right about Pres Trump is not Our Savior… But like old testiment biblical teachings… God has used even the most unGodly men of this world to save his people from an EVIL NATION going under without a Savior… (SO TRUMP IS AN IMPERFECT VEHICLE) sent from GOD TO SAVE AMERICA FROM AN EVIL CORRUPT GOVERNMENT! BUT IT IS UNTO GOD TO APPOINT KINGS AND RULERS… SO IT IS OF GOD! THAT PROTECTS AND GUIDES HIS CHOSEN LEADER..LIKE IT OR NOT! NO ONE CAN RUN FROM GOD… without consequences… SHOULD TRUMP SWAY FROM HIS WORD TO THE PEOPLE, IN WHICH HE MADE PROMISES BEFORE GOD TOO… THAN HE JUST MAY LOSE HIS LIFE… BECAUSE GOD ALONE IS HOLDING HIM ACCOUNTABLE, AND IS ANSWERING THE PRAYERS OF GODS PEOPLE… TO GIVE US A LEADER THAT GOD HIMSELF CONTROLS, AND IS DIRECTING TRUMPS STEPS TO WALK IN… SO IT’S GOD/JESUS A TRUE BELIEVING CHRISTIAN… IS PUTTING THEIR WHOLE TRUST IN… NOT MANKIND… SO IT IS UNTO GOD… WE ARE TRUSTING TRUMP TO DO RIGHT BY US IN… THE BIBLE SAYS WE CAN TRUST NO MAN… YET ONLY GOD WE ARE TO PUT OUR TRUST IN… IT’S ONLY IN… AND THRU JESUS CHRIST! WE CAN BECOME BORN AGAIN… AND THAT MY FRIEND IS WHO WE CALL THE SAVIOR… KING OF ALL KINGS AND LORD OF ALL LORDS NOW AND FOREVER MORE…
    OUR LIFE IN THIS UNIVERSE… IS TO BIG FOR ANY MAN TO RUN… BUT GOD IS SO BIG… SO AWESOME… SO FULL OF MIRACLES AND POWER… WHERE THERES A PEACE THAT ONLY HE ALONE CAN BRING… THAT WAY SURPASSES OUR HUMAN BRAINS ABILITY OF UNDERSTANDING… ONCE ONE HAS EXPERIENCED OUR AMAZING JESUS IN RELATIONSHIP! THERE IS NO GOING BACK… THERE’S NOTHING! OF ANY SORT OF DOUBT… OR THAT ANYONE CAN SAY OR DO… TO STEAL GOD’S LOVE AWAY, OR GOD’S ETERNAL GIFT AWAY… THE MOMENT ONE COMES INTO RIGHT TRUE RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR LORD… THE SAVIOR… JESUS CHRIST;)

  12. I agree that it is too early to find out what Trump will do. As for the savior of the country, we do not know yet. None of the presidents in the last many years have been the savior as shown by a $16 or more trillion debt.

    I think that if hillary was elected that we would have seen the opposite with a criminal.

    As for my Savior, Jesus Christ is Him. And according to the Bible, our leaders, or supposed leaders, have been ordained to be in that position. Instead of bashing Trump, or anyone else, all the parties need to get together (not keep fussing at each other) and get this country straight again. We need to make our employees (the government) to do as we the tax payers want them to do. I agree very much with Oscar.

  13. NOBODY believes Trump to be our political savior, BUT everyone knows clinton and obama are Crooks and want to run our country like a monarchy. BOTH are narcissist type Jerks, believing that only they know what our how people live. Trump is mearly a better option, that we ALL hope will start getting our country back on track to being it’s old self…GREAT and a world leader..

    • Randy,

      If you read the hateful, emotional replies here … you’ll clearly see many DO see Trump as their savior already — even going so far as to say I must support Hillary or Obama lol 🙂

      But yes, for the thousandth time, he’s much, much better than Obama/Hillary.

  14. This is really a sad commentary.

    Trump has already saved/created jobs – ie. Carrier, Ford, et al. He knows that inflating out the debt
    (monetization) is the only solution to gather currency for the buildup. Hiring brains for capital creation thru bonds & stocks, who know how it’s done and have done it, is genius. This money will go into the banks for loans to small business.

    Once the banks release funds – small business will bid federal contracts and employ people (jobs). At present, cash ($2 trillion) has been stuck cycling in the Fed Reserve drawing interest. This was due to an agreement between Yellon and Obama. Yellon tried to dump the economy by raising interest rates- to throw currency into the IMF. It did not work. The Wall Street people know this… Also Trump has requested the big corporations to return offshore cash (another $2 trillion) back to America.

    Don’t sell Trump short. He has more to lose than we do. Please notice that we are moving into a civil war. Communism vs capitalism – we can thank Bernie for this. If you don’t see it, you will shortly – they are spouting PIKETTY instead of MARX.

    Rob the vet.

  15. I have but one Saviour and that is GOD Almighty, Trump is not our saviour by any streach but compared to what
    is leaving the White House and what he Democrat Socialist planned to inflict upon us he is so far above either
    that it could be confusing ot some. A very rich person who speaks to us in a language we can understand,
    a business many who understand what it will take to put our nation back on the path to recovery and so far
    I trust his judgement in those he is choosing to be in his cabinet. Draining the Swamp is another matter and
    it will take a long time to get past the damage done by the resident of the Oval Office and his cohorts over the
    past 10 years. it will not be an easy nor instant task but will take at least 3 years to see changes that count
    take place. No he is not our saviour but he can help put us in the right direction towards salvation of our
    nation from the corruption we have experienced over the last 10 years.

  16. We kept Hellary out of office by voting for him. We all know that he says things in an exaggerated manner. All politicians and businessmen do that to promote themselves and their way of doing things. Remember that half a loaf is better than nothing at all. We have spoken and he is choosing a lot of great people for his Cabinet to implement what America told him the Country needs. Give him a chance and support him. He needs our support from the git go. The leftists, socialists, illegals and Demonrats are all primed already to block him any way that they can. He can’t do it all on his own and if we don’t stand up and support him you’ll be right. He will fail and our hopes for America will also fail. And then in four years we’ll have another Obama/Clinton clone in the White House. Is that what you want to see in our Country?

  17. The writer was too kind to Trump. But it is true. He will not save the nation. However, he should be held to keeping his promises. No need to cut him any slack. He promised. Make him do it.

  18. Sorry people but Caleb speaks the truth, if anyone would have bothered to do any investigating on Trumps past and present you would have seen he has done nothing but rob his employees, not pay his taxes, is a habitual liar, he has gone back on every promise he has ever made,he has ties with known criminals, he is surrounding himself with billionaires and people NOT qualified to do the jobs appointed, i am afraid we are all in for a rough ride people, he’s in it for himself not for any of us. look i am as happy as any of you are that Hillary is not in office but Trump was in no way the answer to our problems. believe what you must to make you feel better but you’d better keep close watch and speak out loudly when you see things going BAD! he’s only got 4 years so if you see laws are being passed and our rights are being suppressed so that it makes it hard to get him out of office you’d better damn well speak out! he’s only there because of the promise he made to the people, hold him to it!

    • Hey Chris,

      Thanks for backing me up but I want to make it clear I have NOTHING against Trump …

      My ONLY point with this article is that people put WAY too much faith in a President, even a guy as different and accomplished as Trump, and to continue to survive and thrive in the future — it’s about what WE are going to do — like it always has been.

      Either way, thanks for chiming in!

  19. Lot’s of BS complaints for Trump not even President yet. Trump will do every fucking thing he said unless stopped by the Congress. Yes, each of us must keep a positive mental attitude and need to take responsibility for ourselves and help others achieve prosperity.

    • Thanks, you’re right. I supported Ted Cruz until it was clear that he didn’t cinch the nomination. I voted for Trump because he was the last one standing against the horrible thought of three Clintons being in control of the White House again. He’s not the candidate that I would have personally chosen for President, he has his good points and faults as well. Like the rest of us, he is human and that’s probably more than I can say for Hellary. He deserves to be given a chance to fight the DC crowd for America and show us what he can do. Best Wishes to him and you in 2017.

  20. Trump is the president elect.. When he becomes the president, he can and will try to do all the things he has said.. We will see how congress reacts to his changes.

  21. Nothing can happen overnight once Trump is sworn in. Some things can happen very quickly like undoing many illegal executive actions by Obama. To undo the harm done by ill advised Socialist goals. Many of the Departments can start to be turned around, again it will take time to repair harm done. Trump is NOT our saviour but he can lead the battle to try to return the USA to it’s core values. So far he has been keeping his word better than most politicians ever do.
    If Conservatives and Republicans work together they can accomplish more in six months than Obama did in eight years. By accomplishing even 25 % of Trump’s goals Conservatives may any chance of Democrats ever having the power to damage the US the way they have for the last eight years. Keep the Faith, Brothers and Sisters!!

  22. Re the comments that a president can’t do anything. I heartily disagree with that. Look how much Obama accomplished in 8 years with his “pen and phone”. All of it bad. I have great faith in Trump’s intentions, and if there aren’t so many liberal, socialist, communists, etc. still in gov. that they block everything he tries to do, I think he will work miracles. I think he loves America, and has watched, frustrated, how things have been going the past 25 years or so, and couldn’t stand and watch it anymore, so ran for President. I think there are a lot of “world order”, & uneducated lazy trash, etc, people against him, who are accustomed to shooting off their mouths, rioting, and creating havoc, while the conservatives have let it happen, because we haven’t been raised to be liars and animals, but I think we have woke up now, and I think there are enough ready to stand up for Trump, if Obama doesn’t bring in Martial Law and become emperor. Then, Hattie bar the door. OBAMA 2016-2024.

  23. In some respects he is a “Savior”. If Hillary got into office we would have NEVER seen a Republican President again. Open Borders, legalizing millions of illegals, liberal supreme court, etc.. need i say more. She would have made sure of that. And guns…you know the answer. So is Trump a savior in at least these aspects. You dam right he is and i think that is what most people are looking at.

    I don’t view him as a “Savior” i have only one. I do view him as saving the Republican party from itself and defeating Hillary (Democrats), socialism (Bernie), the media, some Republicans, etc..no small feat.. I do believe Trump is the real “Change” we all need. If he does half of what he says, he will go down as possibly the best U.S. President ever in my opinion. I think what is so appealing is the fact he has spoken to middle America and he gets it! Let’s wish him well.
