To The Daily Sun,
The Iowa Caucus is behind us. Now it's on to our state for what I believe to be a crucial election.
I see the anger of the American voter. Congress has let us down. Voters were asked to vote Republican and with the Republican majority in the House and Senate, they would repeal Obamacare.
But that did not happen.
The Republican Elite in Washington decided it was better to negotiate with Democrats than the Republican fiscal conservatives.
Congress has the power of the purse and did not defund anything Obama enacted with executive orders. We might not be in this mess had they used the power of the purse.
Obama rode into the White House in 2008 with the idea of "Hope and Change." Americans who voted for him became disillusioned with Obamacare and the hope turned to depression as the change they hoped for was not what was promised.
We are angry and we want real change. I do not want to elect a president on a wave of anger.
Do I want the wall to protect our southern border? You bet! Do I want a temporary halt in letting Muslims into America until we know for sure they are not Isis terrorists? Definitely! Am I tired of politically correct candidates? Absolutely!
How will Trump build the wall? How will we stop Muslims from entering the country until they are properly vetted?
Trump is in favor of eminent domain — maybe for highways but not for personal gain. We in New Hampshire do not want eminent domain for a better use of the property. We are proud of the property rights of New Hampshire citizens.
Trump has used his own money for his campaign. Great. He owes no one. He said probably one of his children would run the Trump Empire under a blind trust. Trump has hotels in the U.S., Rio de Janeiro, Scotland. What if the blind trust wants to build a hotel in a foreign country? Hillary made deals with other countries while she was secretary state and donations were made to the Clinton Foundation. What will Trump do?
Trump said that he would not use junk bonds to finance the hotel in Atlantic City. Then when he got all the approvals, he used junk bonds. Can he be trusted to do what he says? I do not know.
I do not want a candidate who is one way when running a campaign and the opposite when elected. We have had enough of that.
I heard Trump say he could be politically correct in the White House. He could work with Harry Reid and Pelosi. He just said that recently. That is what got our country in the trouble it is in now. Some of the GOP elite in Washington are saying they could work with Trump. That scares me. To me that means an outsider who would be an insider in thinking and actions.
Trump was not in the last debate. Honestly I do not blame him. But WMUR wanted to interview him and he rejected the idea as they wanted to talk about a poll that said 30 percent Republicans would not vote at all for him in the election. Trump will only interview with people who ask what he wants asked. We want to ask the hard questions and get honest answers. We deserve it.
Trump is for a single payer health care. That is left of Obama.
Trump wants to repeal Obamacare. He wants to replace it but what does he want to replace it with?
The Supreme Court ruled on Obamacare. Justice Roberts was the deciding judge. We need conservative judges on the Supreme Court. Just think of what may come before the Supreme Court in the future and what the result may be. I do not remember the case, but there was a Supreme Court ruling in the last couple years that was not based on what was actually written, but what they thought should have been written. This is dangerous and we must have true constitutional judges.
Trump said he was going to create jobs. How? I want details.
I remember Obama made promises and there were no details.
The devil is in the details. I do not want executive orders. Obama did enough of them.
Sarah Palin endorsed Trump. Who cares? Not me. Palin was the VP choice of McCain. He lost. She quit being governor of Alaska, saying she had a lot of bills. I am sure conservatives would have donated to help her pay her legal bills. She was in a reality show and that did not work. She was on Fox and they let her go. With her endorsement, I am sure not to vote for Trump.
Our Founding Fathers created checks and balances in the government. Unfortunately, Congress has not chosen to use its power to check on President Obama's executive orders. Congress could have defunded the amnesty and Obamacare. Did they? Some legislators said they would do that when running for office and once elected promptly forgot what they promised the citizens.
I do not care who endorses who. Voting is my decision. It is your decision. Do it wisely. This might be our last chance.
