Trump’s Reelection Depends on You
As we celebrate our country’s birthday today, and show our appreciation of the liberty and freedom that our great country gives us, we should be aware of how fragile that liberty and freedom are, and how they are now being threatened by the Democratic Socialist Party. The upcoming election on November 3rd is the difference between preserving our conservative values for not only current times, but for future generations. It is our responsibility as guardians of liberty to stand up and be counted by loudly voicing and demonstrating our support of President Trump.
As the Irish statesman and philosopher, Edmund Burke, said back in the 1700s, and it applies even more today is “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men (and women) do nothing.” I believe this quote says it all. We must rise up to this threat to our country from the left, since socialism is evil.
Remember, socialism is one step removed from Communism. All one has to do is look at the history of socialism and see its failure. Venezuela is a classic example. Of course, one of the initiatives from the left’s playbook is the rewriting of history. Look at CNN and you will never find any favorable news article on President Trump, our history or our values. Essentially, CNN and MSNBC are connected parts of the Democratic media machine.
We need to be actively supporting the President’s campaign by doing whatever we can such as phone banking, attending rallies and flag waving, putting bumper stickers on your car, lawn signs, etc. We need to fearlessly demonstrate our support. We cannot be intimated by lawless looters and rioters burning our cities and taking down statues of historical figures. Fear is all part of the left wing playbook.
The final item I would like to address is social media. Looking at the statistics with various posts, it is clear that posts that convey a positive message highlighting the President’s accomplishments and campaign events have far greater impact. The President’s accomplishments during his first term have been enormous. For instance, a recent post on the Trump Boat Parade achieved over 9,000 views and 100 likes.
When you look at the Democrats message there really is only one and that is to beat the President. They have nothing else to offer other than raising your taxes, destroying our economy, suppressing free speech, taking our guns away, and increasing the size of the Federal Government with choking and repressive regulations.
So, I hope that I am preaching to the choir, as I ask you please to actively and aggressively support in every way you can our campaign for the re-election of President Trump. Write letters to the editor, post positive Facebook messages, and actively participate in the campaign activities such as rallies and sign waving. You can sign up or donate at charlottegop.com.
Stay safe and stay strong.
