So, Let’s consider: We see things differently…

I still love my democrat friends and family but, you see it your way and I’ll see it my way!

You see Trump’s arrogance, I see Trump’s confidence.

You see Trump’s nationalism, I see Trump’s patriotism.

You hear Trump’s unsophisticated words, I hear Trump’s honesty.

You see Trump’s racism, I see Trump’s words being misconstrued and twisted by the biased media daily to fit their narrative.

You see Trump as a Republican, I see Trump as a Patriot.

You see Trump as a dictator, I see Trump as a leader.

You see Trump as an Authoritarian, I see Trump as the only one willing to fight for our freedoms.

You see Trump as childish, I see Trump as a fighter, unwilling to cave in to the lies.

You see Trump as an unpolished politician, I see Trump as a breath of fresh air.

You think Trump hates immigrants, I know Trump is married to an immigrant.

You see Trump putting an end to immigration in America, I see Trump welcoming immigrants to America, BUT LEGALLY.

You see cages at the border, I ses cages Obama built at the border.

You see Trump with a struggling economy, I see Trump with an amazing economy until the Democrats shut it down.

You see the violence in the streets and call it “Trump’s America”, I see the violence in the streets of Democratic run cities who are refusing Trump’s help and call it “Liberal America” or “Progressive America.”

You want someone more Presidential, I’m happy we have someone who finally doesn’t just talk the talk but actually walks the walk.

You and I? We see things very differently… But, that difference is part of the STRENGTH that makes America Great.

Let us try to find strength in our differences and strive to continue to make our constitutional republic the best country on earth.

Know your candidates
OK, so, it’s mid term election time and once again we’re being inundated with everyone purporting
to be the best thing since canned beer and sliced bread. Well, they’re all not and you need to make a decision as to which is the best candidate to vote for, based on your preferences, standards and where you want things to go.
So, here’s a few ideas:
Explore their websites
Face it, every candidate worth voting for has not only a website but chances are a Facebook page, twitter and many more sources of blasting you with their message that finding out what you want to know about them and your issues should be easy.
What have they supported?
Yeah, as you would expect, there’s usually a BIG difference between campaign pledges and what they really do once they get in office. SO, for an incumbent, go to their web page and see what they supported. Also you can see how they voted and what their roles in congress was/were by going to
Attend their events
These things are usually good for a free cup of java as well as a good chance to meet and greet these people. There’s nothing looking the candidate in the eye and asking your questions or hearing what other people think of them or their record…or lack of the same in some cases.
Visit their campaign offices
These usually exist somewhere, usually in major government cities that are central to the candidates district and what kind of office they’re running for. You can usually find these from their web page. You can get position
papers, questions answered, and about most anything you should want there.
Check their answers
There’s a website call which is run by the University of Pennsylvania. I attempts to monitor the accuracy of canditate statements. Another site claiming to do the same functions is
Use trustworthy sources
I’m omitting the press from this list as recent events and biased reporting in the press has me really concerned just how much “facts without opinion” is still what’s being presented in the “news”. If you trust someone that’s already in a political office, you may want to ask them for an opinion. Also, is a site you may want to review as well.
Good luck and good voting!
