NY Daily News: July 4th Is The Perfect Time To….Bash Trump

And in doing so, bash the tens of millions of Americans who support many Trump ideals, if not Trump himself. Liberals have a hard time showing actual patriotism

The Founders & the fraud

We hold this truth to be self-evident on the nation’s 240th birthday: In character and vision, Donald Trump clashes with the timeless wisdom of America’s Founding Fathers.

Trump , the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, vows to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, choke off legal immigration and bar all refugees from war-torn Syria. His gut called for closing the door to all Muslims.

George Washington wrote:

“The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respected Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges.”

Of course, Washington was talking about people coming to the national legally, people who would then become part of our great melting pot (a phrase coined much later). We are a generous nation. What we do not want are people coming to our shores illegally or overstaying their visas. Nor do we want the illegals and legals to come here and demand that we change for them, that they get to practice their own laws and we must conform to their laws and mores.

Trump rouses supporters by railing that powerful forces have crippled America while proclaiming that he alone can restore the nation’s lost glory: “I will give you everything. I will give you what you’ve been looking for 50 years. I am the only one.”

Of course, Bernie and Hillary, along with so much of the Democratic Party, do the same, railing against Wall Street, the moneyed class, industry, and so forth.

Trump , in a combination that would drive the U.S. far deeper into debt, pledges to dramatically hike spending on the military, Social Security and Medicare while slashing taxes by huge sums.

Jefferson wrote:

“The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

Say what? Democrats plan to jack up spending to unbelievable levels, and care little about imbalances. Of course, they do want to tax the hell out of the middle class, so there is that. Here’s the funniest, though

Trump struts, preens, beats his chest and, with unshakable faith that he is right, proclaims mightiness from bedroom to the boardroom, while insulting and demeaning those who are different from him, those who are disabled, those who disagree with his policies, and, most of all, those who question his greatness.

Washington wrote :

“I now make it my earnest prayer, that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection . . . and that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all, to do Justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility and pacific temper of mind, which were the Characteristicks of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy Nation.”

Happy birthday, America, we hope and pray.

Have they not been watching that last 7+ years of Obama?

    Teach aren’t you “bashing” the majority of Americans who voted for Obama and who give him positive job approval polling?
    About 2/3 Americans want immigration reform that includes allowing those with no proper visas/documents to stay
    As for bashing Trump, the GOP created him you guys own him and his Wall. it is looking probable that he will cost the GOP the senate as well as seats on SCOTUS)
    And imbalances???the largest deficit was from a Bush signed
    Obama has cut that budget deficit by 2/3
    Even in NC people don’t want that HB2 Bill
    You are not a fan of Trump? Putin is a big one
    Putin has supported financially and political all the über rightwing parties in Europe and is salivating over a divided Europe filled with weak nationalistic countries and a weakened NATO. If Putin supports them, shouldn’t we have some concerns?

    During President Washington’s time, all immigration was legal immigration. Other than a short-lived restriction on Chinese immigration late in the 19th century, our restrictions on immigration really date from the early 20th century.

    That said, President Washington was a slave-owner, and thus supported the immigration of “the oppressed and persecuted,” even if they didn’t particularly want to come to our shores.

    There are many things that the Framers didn’t foresee, and to them, immigration meant white, western, Protestant Europeans.

    the largest deficit was from a Bush signed

    The largest deficit actually signed into law by President Bush was the FY2008 appropriation, which came in at $408 billion. Mr Bush submitted an FY2009 budget, and, had the Congress done as it should have, President Bush would have signed those appropriations into law as well, but the Democrats knew that they’d get more spending under Barack Hussein Obama, and chose to fund the government via continuing resolution to start FY2009. The Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009, along with the porkulus bill, were both signed into law by President Obama, sending the FY2009 deficit to well over $1 trillion, $1.4 trillion if I remember correctly.

    The latest deficits are well under a trillion, but they are all still higher than any which occurred under President Bush.

    • John says:

      There was about 1500 billion deficit in 2009
      150 came from Tarp
      Mist of the deficit came from list tax revenues that were expected but never came in
      Remember by the beginning of 2009 the economy was already in total free fall
      With the Dow eventually bottoming out at 6500
      Not much capital gains tax coming in that year and with unemployment hitting 10% payroll taxes were down also
      And the oft repeated warnings of inflation also turned out false. Obama didn’t print too much money we could have printed more and still at little inflation

    Spending in FY2009 increased by a whopping 19.94%, from $2,982.5 billion to $3,517.7 billion. Perhaps easier to understand: total federal spending in FY 2008 was 20.2% of GDP; in FY2009, the Democrats had increased it to 24.4%, a percentage wholly unprecedented in any year other than those during World War II. Under President Obama, total federal spending has always been higher than the worst under President Bush, every single year, and is forecast to increase, not decrease, as a percentage of GDP.

    Yes, we spent way, way, way too much under President Bush, but, not to worry, President Obama blew that spending right out of the water.
