The Donald Campaign Message 01/24/2016

Poll: Public doubts Washington’s problem-solving ability–Deseret News Sunday, January 24th, 2016
“As the first voting nears in the presidential race, most Americans have little to no confidence in the federal government to confront what they see as the country’s most important priorities, according to a national survey.”  This poll, conducted in December, found more than 6 in 10 respondents expressed only slight confidence—or none at all—that the federal government can make progress on the problems facing the nation in 2016.”
Now for my question.  How is this any different than the sentiments the American public felt in 2012, the last presidential year or what about the 1960 campaign or 1972?  Yep, the answer to that quiz question is D., all of the above.  In other words, these are the same doubts we, as Americans have had for the last 50 years, at least.  Here are, I believe, some of the reasons.
1) “Mia Love, Representative from the Utah Congress wants to crack down on Congress dumping controversial legislation into unrelated, must-pass bills in the middle of the night. She has introduced a measure to limit bills in Congress to one subject at a time.  It would prevent lawmakers from bundling things together or folding legislation into large appropriations bills. ” NOW THIS IS NOVEL “Each bill would rise and fall on its own merits. Members of both parties have made a habit of passing complex, thousand-page bills without hearings, amendments or debate,” Love said.  That process and the collusion that goes with it are why we a $18 trillion in debt and why the American people have lost trust in elected officials.”  By the way, good for Mia Love.
Yes, this indeed used to be and probably still is called “Earmark’s” or “Pork Barrel Spending.”  
Ok, so think of this.  A thousand page bill, which by the way is probably the shortest of the bills, come on, who is going to read it? The running average number of bills passed each year by Congress is 758.  That’s 758,000 pages!
No way, you say!
Solution: Yep, As President, I would support Mia’s proposal. It is better.  One bill, one subject pass it or not! No back-room deals.  I bet George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and even Paul Revere would support me.
“One if by land, and two if by sea!”  Shine the lights on this baby.
2) Why else do American’s feel the government can’t solve the IMPORTANT issues?
Well, here are a couple of thoughts from noted men in history:
“In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.” 
    JOHN ADAMS, second US president
“Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.”
     Mark Twain
or here’s one that reminds me of Justin’s dialogue in “Homeowners Political Plight.”
“Congress is so strange.  A man gets up to speak and says nothing.  Nobody listens—-and then everybody disagrees.”
      Boris Marshalov (not sure who he is but he has it right)
Is there any wonder why the American people are fed Up?  It may be time for a second American Revolution.  Let’s get a President and a Congress who want to get things done. Identify each problem, of which, there are now 62 billion 372 million on and on and on that need to be addressed because our Congress has been so inept and they just want to sit and “eat pork barrel” sandwiches.
3) Any President who is elected today, has to have a sense of humor because he/she is basically, joining the circus.  Think, Hogle Zoo1
Here’s one who knew how to do it:
I like this approach else, why would I be doing what I am doing right now.  Stay tune for next week!
Vote the Real Donald ✌
