2015 Will Go Down As the Year of the Citizen Soldier

This year has turned out to be a most unusual and decidedly pivotal year in the history of America. Most Americans are unaware of this fact, but it is nevertheless true. It all began with the assumption that 2015 was going to be just another predictable presidential election cycle. This assumption, however, quickly changed when it became studded with several high-profile Washington outsiders, or as they should be properly characterized, citizen soldiers. No one has seen anything like this in a long, long time and today, much to everyone’s surprise, one of these citizen soldiers, Donald J. Trump, leads the Republican ticket with a massive 40% approval rating. His poll numbers and popularity have been a shock to not only the other Republican candidates but also to the party pundits, talking heads and those that are considered savvy Washington insiders. To all these groups, Trump has been not only been a complete surprise but a riddle wrapped in a mystery hidden inside an enigma. To say they don’t get him would be an understatement. They have time and time again proclaimed his political demise only to see his support and approval ratings steadily increase. Today, his approval ratings and popularity show no tendency of waning and his unstoppable popularity have left most professional politicians and pundits speechless scratching their heads and wondering what’s going on here?

What’s going on is that Mr. Trump has awakened a sleeping giant the American voter who is extremely concerned about not only where our country is but where it is is headed. It also appears that these supporters have come to the same conclusion that Donald J. Trump has, that everything about our country is wrong no matter how you try to spin it. The wrong people have been elected to hold office, the wrong people are in control of our financial institutions and money and the wrong people oversee and administer our justice system. Mostly we see these offices held by self-serving disinterested people who by sheer luck have been appointed or elected to powerful positions in our government. This fact is clear if you just look and understand what and where the truth is. As an example, consider our current administration. Are they doing their best to serve and protect the people of America?

In 2008, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. How did this crisis happen and who caused it? It was caused by the absolute greed of the banks and brokerage firms that controlled our money and the markets. This includes all the banks that were bailed out by the Obama administration, the brokerage houses and the insurance companies. These same parties were subsequently paid billions of dollars more by the federal government after knowingly committing this fraud. Was anyone prosecuted? Did any of these criminal institutions pay for their sins? No not a one. Two of the biggest of these offenders were Goldman Sachs and AIG insurance group. These two institutions, by all appearances, had an open door policy with government officials and cabinet members regardless of their political stripes. To any concerned person with an open mind and a skeptical nature, these relationships with the government were anything but arms length ones. But it doesn’t stop there. There are also a number of high-level individuals who share the blame: The then head of the Federal Reserve Bank Alan Greenspan, ex-president Bill Clinton and chairman Christopher Dodd to name just a few.

The question is, did the administration know about any of this when they borrowed trillions of dollars to bail out the banks? Of course, they did. Everybody in government knew what and who caused it, but that’s not the worst of it. The real crime was that everyone hid the fact that as a consequence of the crisis America was a bankrupt nation. Surprised? Don’t be. Part of the reason we the people are getting the shaft is because many officials, both republican and democrat, have a very intimate and lucrative relationship with wall street. So how do you buy your representative’s integrity and moral principles? With money, of course, lots of money. Here’s an example. Is insider stock trading illegal? Of course, it is. If ordinary citizens are convicted of insider trading they will spend a significant amount of time in a federal prison. But if you are an elected official this law doesn’t apply to you. You get a pass. And there you have it. Donald J. Trump is well aware of this and the other facts revealed in this article and he further sees that unless something drastic is done about it America will go down in history as just another failed political experiment. Many if not most of his supporters are also aware of this fact. And his supporters are the true Americans here. The Americans who still believe in the ideals and sacrifices that our founding fathers believed in.

There are two very distinct kinds of Americans living in our country, those that want more free stuff from the government and those who believe the words that our founding fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. These words are extremely important to tho

These words are extremely important to those Americans that believe in the founders ideals because they emphasize not only a belief in an all-powerful, omniscient God but that we the people are endowed by our creator with unalienable rights and not phony privileges that can be rescinded on a whim.
