Is it because we are a fickle nation? Do we allow ourselves to be chivied into voting for politicians based on the latest pronouncements of a socialist press or the prejudices of our hearts instead of considering the long-term consequences of our uninformed vote? I point out in my book, A View from the Street / River City Policing; we are caught up in the illusion of due the minimum get the maximum. While there is evidence that it works in the public sector because of the greed and hunger for power of politicians. Doing the minimum when it comes to voting in (Hiring a politician) to represent us is foolish and downright dangerous. This can be seen in the man we hired as our president. As far as I can see he was selected because, 1 He was a democrat, 2 he had a nice smile, and 3 he gave a good speech. The man is otherwise unqualified for the job. He hates the military and the Police. He believes that America is too big for her britches on the world stage, and has a propensity towards arrogance.
Every leader that I have ever learned to respect has had the following qualities. 1. They were humble yet firm and decisive. 2 they chose people that new the job they were tasked with and they listened to the advice that those leaders gave him or her. 3. The expectation for others was high and they held others accountable to the mission. 4. They demanded from and gave respect to all those they served. I said served because that is what a good leader is. A servant to all he or she leads, and the mission they are tasked with.
When I evaluate a politician I am not concerned with what they think I want to hear come out of their mouth. I want to know what they think. I want to know what they will do in a crisis. In war I don’t want a civilian deciding when and where to commit troops. I want the leaders that the nation has trained to fight wars doing the bulk of that. Win baby win! Don’t put my kids in the possession of giving up thier safety because the enemy might be offended or get slapped around a bit. The Army field manual was the product of wartime experiences and should not be subject to the feel-good whims of a deranged political hack that happens to occupy the house on Pennsylvania Ave.
In peace I want someone that understands the burden that taxation puts on the American taxpayer. One that understands that prosperity is the best social welfare program ever devised. That the borders of the United States are our borders and we have the duty to defend them from armed invaders weather they come in uniform or disguised as civilians calling themselves urban gangs like MS 13 taking territory in our cities killing civilians while the sitting government pretends it’s a local police matter. That B.S. needs to stop!
Let’s examine some facts. This army illegally crossed our borders coming from all over Mexico and South America infiltrating in small groups they are funded by a multi-billion dollar extra-legal organization outside our borders some of our own citizens have defected to these invaders and our smart guys in Washington DC think is a local police matter. Declare war on the bastards and put them in POW camps till the war is over then send them home.
Our own treasonous murders we can deal with in accordance to our laws, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice (U.C.M.J.) . Let the congress declare it a shooting war with the marines involved and watch the thugs through down their weapons and declare, not me! They would be running for the border faster than Obama can raise our taxes. But Knocker is crazy they will never go for the simple solution when they can stand by and watch a whole generation of Poor young men, White, Black, Hispanic, be slaughtered in the streets of American cities. I know the K.K.K. wants it that way, but the government of this nation should not be doing the bidding of that bunch.
