For the life of me, the left simply cannot understand why millions of us support Trump. Prepare yourself for a gut punch here and know this- I can take any shitty comments you might have. There is space below and I'll let you have your say without using the delete button.
In 2010, President Obama destroyed my financial ability to obtain health insurance. In my case, I was retired with a pension just above the 400% required of what was a ridiculously low (and arbitrarily assigned) poverty level.
Obama did this with lies such as the "price of insurance would go down" and "if you liked your doctor you could keep your doctor." In fact, my doctor fired me within months of the enactment of Obamacare because I paid cash. Sent me a letter. Why keep a cash payer around when you can provide healthcare to a large swath of new Obamacare patients/recipients with deep insurance pockets?
To add insult to injury, we were penalized for not having insurance while deadbeats received insurance for free. I remember hauling a guy around in my car for Uber who told me me he signed up for Obamacare gold, had his knee replaced (a 30+ thousand dollar op) and received free physical therapy- and then dropped his insurance once the operation was complete. He had paid 5 months of premiums.
Our last hope was that the Supreme Court would rule against this unlawful seizure of our property but they did not. I remember Obama virtually threatening the court and I was shocked when Justice Stevens ruled against us and broke the tie. They called it a tax. They have taxing "authority."
By the time 2016 rolled around- we had a whole section of this country who hated democrats, Obama, and his minions. On a personal level- aside from being lied to- I believe Obama has cost me in the neighborhood of 40,000 dollars in medical costs, penalties, and I still have to shop all of my maladies around while paying cash. Including prescription costs and dental care.
That all might be bad enough but Obama presented another hurdle- he was black. Being black in America right now means that no white person can criticize anything a black person does. However, minorities can call white people bigots and racists and act like victims with no repercussion. It's a one way street where every white person in America must remain silent or be labeled and ridiculed by these folks. That's been the evolution of our insane culture where you simply cannot criticize any minority for their piss poor performance or their lies.
That's why we can never speak of the 71% of black kids without fathers. We just let them shoot and kill each other in Chicago and New Orleans, Baltimore, and Detroit because letting these kids kill each other is far easier than opening a dialogue which might include discussing what is wrong with the black culture that they find this acceptable behavior. Heaven forbid, we might offend them.
That's why America is pissed off. That's how Donald Trump got elected. If they can't figure that out- I can't help them.
Nobody cares about Russian interference, cheating on your wife, phone calls to the Ukraine, or even Chinese tariffs. I'm not sure any of that garbage matters. It's noise.
I care about accessible healthcare- not subsidizing health insurers who donate to presidential campaigns. I care about our diplomats getting killed while the people in charge do nothing weeks before the election. I am sick of criminals like Bill and Hillary running free and flying on a pedophile's plane.
Apparently none of that shit concerns my leftist friends. So we aren't friends. That's divisive and in the jargon of the left- I have set my boundaries.
There is not a chance in hell that I will vote for a gay male President with a male wife or husband or whatever they call one another. I don't care if he cured cancer or negotiated a middle east cease fire. I will not cast a ballot for a communist candidate who has never held a private sector job in his life and has gotten rich skimming campaign contributions.
And I don't give two shits if you think I'm narrow minded, homophobic, intolerant, or a bigot.
So there ya have it. The unvarnished truth. Donald Trump is the lesser of all those evils. I am not going to be "tolerant" or buy into any of that statist rhetoric of those enlightened leftists driving Priuses', thinking they are saving the planet while talking drivel into the latest Apple phone. This is where I draw the line. The election this year is going to be one of the most fantastic shit shows I have ever witnessed especially if the statists nominate Bernie. I can hardly wait and if you want to know what started all of this divisiveness and animosity in our country- go ask Barack Obama.
He created a giant swath of voters who were duped, lied to, and remain angry. The "affordable care act" they called it. You don't like President Trump Mr. Obama? Well guess what- you and your party's shitty nominee last election cycle- created President Trump. It's about time you and your minions stand tall and take responsibility for that instead of whining like little children about Trump supporters and wondering how we could be so "stupid" for supporting him. This given that the best alternative your party could come up with was a snotty, arrogant, and yet to be convicted criminal.
It's really not that hard to figure out.
