Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Submitted by BJ Trahan (United States), Jul 22, 2016 at 13:27

We the people have selected Donald Trump due to his policies and plans!! Many of the things he has said, what he wants to do, and to make America great again is what we have been hoping someone would have the intestinal fortitude (guts) to say and do!!!!! Therefore, please tell all Republican elite groups to stop trying to make Trump change his positions, and that it is time to stop the criticism, and to start working with and supporting him.

I and millions of others are tired of hearing about how Trump is not conservative enough, or Republican enough. He is far more conservative than Mitt Romney, (grandfather of Obamacare) who was not and is still not conservative. He is far more conservative that John McCain is barely 50% conservative. Both the wimpy Romney and McCain were accepted, and they lost. Trump is more conservative than these two and most of the other people who ran against him. We voted for him because he is not politically correct, responds to insults, and wants to do the following conservative things:

Re-Build up our military.
Take better care of our veterans. Veterans administration reform.
Immigration reform. Close the border!, and finish the wall! that many just talk about but have not gotten it done. To stop Mexicans from coming here illegally, filling country with illegal drugs, and killing our economy due to the cost to support them which far outweighs any benefit they supposedly create.

Get rid of Common Core and return education to local control. (Very conservative idea, which decreases power of Federal Government, which many republican only give lip service to.)

Bring money (that is parked overseas due to our ridiculous taxes), back into USA by decreasing the tax burden that is keeping it out of the country.
Work hard (not just talking about it) to bring jobs back to USA, and the create more jobs in USA. This builds up the economy so we can do other things.
He tells the news media they are liars and cheats to their face; and he is correct, and we were hoping someone had the guts to say it! The rest of the candidates did not have the intestinal fortitude to tell this truth to the news media in their face.
Protect our Second Amendment rights.

Get rid of Obamacare, rather than just talking about it, and then voting to finance it as present congress has done.!!!
Stop China and other countries from taking financial advantage of the USA.
Decrease taxes, so businesses and people can get the economy growing.
Help the Christians refugees, and not just the Islamic ones, as our Islamic supporting president does now.
Stop Islamic immigration. Look at the terrible situation in Europe. We need to prevent that here in USA. They are NOT compatible with our republic form of government; and they have said they want to change it to Sharia. Islam is really a political movement masquerading as a religion.
Said he wants to work with Congress; not around Congress like our present President is doing.
Wants to work to lower our national debt, not just talk about it.
Wants the USA government and people to be more positive about Christians and Christian beliefs, and start saying Merry Christmas again!!!
He is for real law and order, not the make believe stuff!
He wants to work with congress to repeal the vindictive Lyndon Johnson law that placed ridiculous restrictions on speech by church pastors and other religious leaders
He said he wants to get rid of "gun free" zones. That is excellent idea because those are soft targets and the nuts and terrorist have been going to those places to kill people.
There is plenty of information on his site, if you want to see more!!! https://www.donaldjtrump.com/issues/https://www.donaldjtrump.com/issues/

He has the intestinal fortitude be direct about problems.

He offers solutions to the problems, and his accomplishments in the mean old business world shows that he can do what he says he wants to do. Of course, Congress will have to work with him to get these things done, not just emphasizing his caustic words!
