But real America couldn’t care less. It loves Trump’s style, his fighting spirit, his energy, and his inner determination. Whatever the personal cost, they want America to succeed and would do anything to get there. A percentage point or two of GDP don’t matter if it means crushing China. Higher prices don’t matter if it means the return of factories to America.
Under Trump, things were improving, in many cases rapidly. Military readiness was increasing, the economy was booming, companies were reshoring profits and jobs, and, most importantly, Americans across the country glimpsed the vision of American Greatness that should be omnipresent in our lives.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope examine the level of success achieved by President Donald J. Trump in his effort to ‘Make America Great Again.’ At the time of our correspondence, the election results are still unclear, therefore the contents of this conversation can be considered as either a halftime analysis or a single-term evaluation.
Likewise, the Trump victory exposed the many frauds that used to masquerade as Republicans. These people quickly emerged as the Never Trumpers and it was clear that they had grown accustomed to their dance with Democrats. In reality, they were not far apart from Democrats. They always held the same elitist philosophy, they knew they were smarter and more sophisticated than the rubes that voted for them. Political affiliations just gave them power and influence over a different group of people.
