Then and now
In 1991, jobs in this area dried up. I moved to the Dallas area to get a decent-paying job, leaving my wife and son alone for 10 years.
Two presidents, two Gulf wars, two towers — one of which my wife and I saw fall down. I saw two do-nothing presidents give us a $20 trillion debt and allow companies to relocate to China. Taxes and requirements drove many of those companies out. Allowing unfair import and export trade practices cost our government trillions.
Now, a new face called Donald Trump.
Whether you like Trump or not, his election has outed a criminal government enterprise never seen in history against the people and a presidential candidate. The FBI, Department of Justice, etc., tried to change an election. Unheard of in American history. Will these government heads get away with these criminal acts? Probably.
One year later — now — billions of dollars coming home; companies, jobs, economy coming back. Tax cuts for most citizens and companies rallying. A new military coming back. New immigration laws, better law enforcement. Drop welfare advantages and people may have to go back to work. People who can't work will be cared for. Medical care furnished.
So is Trump the right person at the right time to save the USA? We will see. It appears so!
Three more years, or maybe seven years? Imagine in one year what else may we expect?

It's simple math
If we reduce the events that took place during the 2016 general election into a mathematical equation the results would be as follows: Hillary Clinton + the DNC + money + a biased British spy + the infamous Dossier + Fusion GPS + the Russians + the biased Media + the biased FBI = "Trump!"

Enough of the PC
I constantly hear people complaining about President Trump's lack of political correctness in his talks.
I have never really understood what political correctness included and decided to look at the definition: "Marked by or adhering to a typically progressive orthodoxy on issues involving especially ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or ecology." That really doesn't have a meaning to me.
I can't understand why we can't throw political correctness in the garbage can with the rest of the trash and get down to setting our country back on the road laid for us by our Forefathers.
