Well, I’m guessing you’ve probably had your fill of election year campaign compost by now and if you’re anything like me, what you’ve heard isn’t worth a bucket of old bullchips. These politicians are either so ignorant about what should be done or so afraid of offending someone that they do their level best not to say anything when they talk. To tell you the truth, I’m sick of it and them so here’s my idea of what I think a campaign speech should be. (After reading it, you’ll know why I’d never be considered by any party let alone nominated or elected to anything.)
“OK folks, let me tell you what I’m all about and the way I look at a few important issues facing us today. If you like what you hear, vote for me in November. If you don’t like it, then vote for someone else…its’ just that simple but don’t expect me to change as the campaign unfolds because I won’t… regardless of who might be offended.
First and foremost,
I’m a traditionalist in the mold of our Founders. I believe in the
constitution and limited government as envisioned by those Founders.
Anything I do while in office will be driven by that philosophy and that
document. I have unlimited faith in
the exceptionalism of grassroots
Now what about some of the major concerns of our day? Let me tell you where I stand on those so you can make up your mind about where I stand with you.
Now regarding our serious immigration situation, if you’re here legally, working hard, want to become a citizen and adopt our culture, language and laws as your own, I salute you. If you’re here illegally, you’re not welcome and you can rest assured that we will rid ourselves of you by cutting off all benefits and all job opportunities—your homeland will start to look better everyday and the migration tidal wave will be reversed in a matter of weeks. Additionally, our borders will be secured from unauthorized entry but the exit gates will remain wide open for those now motivated to leave. If you’re an employer hiring hard working Americans and immigrants here legally, paying a fair wage based on market forces and treating them as you would want to be treated, I salute you. If you’re hiring illegals, you’re breaking the law and you can rest assured that we’ll catch you and it won’t be pleasant when we do.
organizations, state sponsored or individually inspired, should forget about
trying to destroy or harm
Well, my fellow
Americans, you know where I stand. I
realize there are many more issues to be considered but you can count on the
fact that I’ll approach those with the same “America First” philosophy as
I have the issues just discussed and look at them under the same light of
understanding given us by the Creator and our Founders.
In closing, I leave you with one final thought that you can bank on; my
confidence in you and our nation will never wane.
