America is now at a crossroads. We are presented with the choice of corrupt politics as usual with the Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, or actual change which will benefit the American people with Republican Presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump. Unlike his opponent, Donald Trump is not a mouth-piece for the special interests, lobbyists, and mega-donors. He is free to do what is right for the people of America, as he is bound to nobody. Moreover, Donald Trump realizes the threat that illegal and massive amounts of legal immigration pose to the American people. He realizes that migration policy should benefit the citizens of the United States, not foreign nationals. Also, Donald Trump will protect the traditional American values upon which this nation was founded including free speech and Second Amendment rights. Donald J. Trump will put America first and make America great again.
Donald Trump is not a puppet for the special interests or the mega-donors, much unlike his opponent, who is totally controlled by Wall Street and other big-money institutions who are funding her campaign. It has been far too long since we have had a president who was free to make deals and craft policy that put the American people first instead of the corporate donor class. Donald Trump is beholden to nobody and is truly free to serve the people of this great country. Often the U.S. government does not make competitive deals, which is a leading factor to our massive national debt. Currently the U.S. government does not competitively bid on military supplies. Instead, politicians pay more than they should in order to benefit the big manufacturers that donated to their campaign. Donald Trump owes nothing to the industrial big-money donors and will therefore be able to make the best deals for the American people.
Donald Trump realizes the massive threat that illegal and massive amounts of legal immigration pose to America. Donald Trump will end illegal immigration by building a great border wall, for which Mexico will pay. He will also deport all those who are here illegally in accordance with the law. No longer should foreign nationals be allowed to stay in the United States illegally at the expense of the American populace. These migrants also pose a serious threat to national security. Hillary Clinton wants to dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted to this country. This is not only careless but is also potentially very dangerous. We have not yet found a truly effective way to vet Syrian refugees, so extreme vetting is necessary to protect the people of the United States. This will often mean not allowing refugees to enter this country. Donald Trump will put America first and will not allow immigration policy to threaten the lives or livelihood of the American people.
Donald Trump is committed to protecting the values upon which America was founded. Free speech and Second Amendment gun rights must be preserved to make America great again. Hillary Clinton poses a serious threat to both of these principles. She will appoint Supreme Court justices who will infringe upon gun rights and who will censor free speech. Donald Trump will preserve what made America great in the first place in order to make America great again.
The choice is clear. On one hand we have the same old hackneyed corrupt politician who is a puppet to her donors, and on the other hand we have someone who will bring about real change, put America first, restore law and order, and make America great again. Please help make America great again by voting this November.
