AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!
At this point, we are not even trying.
The two major news stories of this week have been ridiculous compared to our actual problems:
Will Trump Be indicted?
This has been in all major news outlets for a whole week. Other than sending well wishes to a stressed Trump family, what does one do? This should not be the story in the news. What is truly amazing is that former President Trump, former Vice President Pence, and President Biden have all admitted to mishandling top-secret documents on multiple occasions. The focus should be on the Rule of Law. Of greater importance to our children, and their future, would be the deficits run up under the last several presidents.
Barack Obama 2009 – 2017 $8.34 trillion
George W. Bush 2001 – 2009 $6.1 trillion
2. Will TikTok be sold or banned?
In my opinion, TikTok itself is just a small part of the problem. Although I understand and have foretold the danger of continuing our trade relationship with Communist China with precision for over 15 years, our issues cannot be solved by banning TikTok. The actual problem lies within the younger generation’s ability to learn and function.
These are some of America’s dilemmas:
Our debt is too big.
The Federal Reserve needs to be changed, now. It has destroyed the middle class.
The biggest problem I see during this campaign is that the news cycle is deliberately changing topics to issues that do not matter on a fundamental level. This happens far too often, so that no one is able to focus on the dilemmas that plague us. By keeping us distracted by news topics that do not matter, the American people have been blinded to the obvious. This must change. The people deserve an honest outlet, and an honest leader.
