What are the presidential polls telling us?
On the GOP side, non-politicians like Donald Trump and Ben Carson are polling very well. Democrats seem to like Bernie Sanders, who is hardly what anyone on either side of the aisle would call your run of the mill 'politician.' Hillary Clinton's polling numbers are tanking each and every poll, going from a lead-pipe cinch for the nod to under 40% of approval.
The presumptive nominees' prospects on each side months ago are now iffy, at best. This includes career politicians such as Hillary Clinton on the Democrat side and Jeb Bush, a career politician on the Republican side. Neither of these candidates have ever held a job of any significance outside of politics: neither has ever had to meet a payroll, make decisions as to how best to allocate privately held resources, or please a consumer base by providing any product or service that anyone wants or needs. All either knows is how to win elections, or position themselves to win elections.
And "We The People" are sick to death of those who only seek power without understanding what the rest of us want out of our government. This includes Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush: we are sick of those guys. Sick to death.
I don't want to launch into the shortcomings of Hillary Clinton as a leader, it would take way too much time and keystrokes. Just leave it said that she is the last person America needs right now calling the national shots.
Jeb Bush wants to project himself as being able to deliver a better government to us in 2016. And what does he base this on? That his grandfather (Prescott Bush) was a U.S. senator? His father and brother were U.S. presidents? Those credentials to me merely suggests that Jeb Bush feels he is entitled to lead us because he is related to career politicians before him. He has said that he describes the invasion (yes, flat-out INVASION) by illegals into our country is 'an act of love.' He says these people simply want a better life for themselves and their loved ones.
Jeb Bush is a huge supporter of the educational system called "Common Core." This debacle of a scam of a sham of a system is concocted of leftist standards that protect teachers and teachers unions, and are dictated from on high from an over reaching federal government. This alone should eliminate Jeb Bush from consideration. How we teach our kids should be up to parents and local considerations, not the know-it-all politicians at the national level. Common Core would more closely be associated with past similar efforts by Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-Tung and Josef Stalin.
And this 'act of love' he believes are motivating illegals invading our country? His brother as president once stated that American 'compassion doesn't stop at the Rio Grande.' These illegals are not invading us as 'acts of love.' They merely want to suck off of the efforts of our fore bearers who died in many foreign battles to secure our way of life from those who would become dictators over us and enslave us. These 'act of love' invaders respect nothing of our heritage, or our national sacrifices to make our country the freedom magnet that draws them: they want the goodies that the American way of life affords, but they do not want to pay any homage to our culture, our language or our institutions. They will huddle in their own little ghettos, speak their own language, wave their own flags, and send their under-the-table money back to the 'old country', pay no taxes and suck off of our generous social programs, and then vote for the Democrats who allow them to be the evil and damaging parasites to our country that they all are.
These invaders are not driven by 'acts of love,' as Jeb Bush erroneously believes. They are evil invaders, lawless and rotten to the core, and need to be repulsed and expelled. Every stinking one of them.
All of our politicians are weighing in on the side of 'amnesty.' And none of us want that. All of our politicians resist building a fence and protecting our borders. These politicians on both sides have watched this illegal horde invade our southern border now for over 50 years, and have not done squat to stop it.
Most Americans want our borders protected against invasion. Career politicians don't seem to want this at all, and accordingly have not taken a single step to stop it.
Is it any wonder that Donald Trump's polling numbers are surging when he swears to build a great big, fat wall, evict all of the illegals and make Mexico pay for everything?
You do the math. "Act of Love." Bunk. Crap. Garbage. We want nothing to do with any of that malarky. Career politicians are killing our way of life, and we don't want to elect yet another clueless politician to move into the Oval Office.
