America is spiraling downward, and there is only one person who can change the direction this nation is heading. That person is President Donald J. Trump.
Joe Biden and the Democrats are policing Americans
The United States of America is unrecognizable. Joe Biden and the Democrats have morphed the country from a Democratic Republic to a police state where they control the media, some of the courts, and the Justice Department. To an extent, they also control the constitutional rights and liberties that Americans are permitted to exercise and those that are unenforceable and punishable by way of criminal prosecution.
The police state is in full force and effect. The Biden administration is again considering vaccine and/or mask mandates due to a “new” Covid strain. Left-wing prosecutors and a weaponized Department of Justice have indicted Trump and those affiliated with him in various left-wing and anti-Trump jurisdictions solely because they fear the real possibility that he will be reelected.
In doing so, various Democrats, left-wing prosecutors, and some judges have ignored or disregarded such things are the right to due process, the right of a criminal defendant to prepare a defense, the First Amendment, the right to assemble, the right to challenge an election, the attorney-client privilege, the Presidential Records Act, the Voting Rights Act, and other such laws, rights, and privileges.
Their goal is clear: control the White House, the courts and judiciary (including the Supreme Court, which they want to pack), the justice system, the Department of Justice, and both chambers of Congress. The left also seeks to unilaterally determine what constitutional and other such rights people are permitted to exercise.
Trump is the only one who can save America
Trump is the only person who can simultaneously withstand this onslaught, forcefully and effectively push back, and get things done. His persistence, intelligence, leadership, toughness, and tremendous clout and following terrify those who are seeking to destroy him and his movement.
With the nation in decline and with the formation of a police state well underway, America does not have the time or the luxury to “teach someone the ropes.” There is no time for a learning curve.
Other candidates pale in comparison
While some point to other Republican candidates as suitable or better alternatives, such comparisons lack merit. Out of the entire pool of Republican candidates, only Trump has been president. Moreover, Trump is the only person with the proven level of experience needed for the difficult job ahead. He is also the only person who can point to a successful record as president.
While some of the other candidates have some impressive accomplishments, such as at the state level (with a Republican supermajority in the state legislature), they pale in comparison to what Trump accomplished during his first term.
Such comparisons also fail to account for the major differences between the duties and responsibilities of a governor, for example, and those of a president. Stated differently, success in one role does not equate to success in the other, nor does it account for the other intangibles that come along with the presidency, including personality, decision-making skills when stakes are at their highest, and temperament.
Trump cannot trust some within his own party
Additionally, while Trump continues to promote his America First agenda and fight for all Americans, some other Republicans, including some current candidates, have taken it upon themselves to fight against Trump. For example, some seek to remove his name from the ballot in various states.
Others seem to be waiting and hoping that the politicized and weaponized indictments will lead to Trump’s downfall and cause him to withdraw from the race. At the same time, while Trump is being persecuted by way of multiple prosecutions, House Republicans have failed to defund or impeach while other Republicans have spoken out against impeachment altogether.
Tangentially, Trump is the only one who has consistently fought for, and on behalf of, the American people and who is not beholden to special interest groups or the Washington D.C. swamp.
While other Republican candidates continue to woo and rely on big donors and bow down to special interest groups, Trump stays the course, remains true to his cause, and fights for the American people.
Unlike many or all other Republican candidates, Trump need not pretend to be who he is not for fear of upsetting those in the swamp, RINOs, big donors, or establishment Republicans. Rather, he is motivated by what is best for America and for the American people and acts accordingly.
With election season rapidly approaching, more and more Americans are realizing that Trump is the only person who can reliably be counted on to save America. Time is of the essence. The window of opportunity to save the nation is rapidly closing. Trump is the only person who can change America’s direction and slowly save this dying nation.
