Trump to Ohio: “No More Games”

Written By | Dec 27, 2016

COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., December 27, 2016Merry Christmas, America! We now have a President dedicated to, as he announced in Ohio, “No more games!” And, with the demise of Political Correctness, PC, as summarily dispatched by the outspoken, individualistic Trump, we now feel freer to say out loud, “Merry Christmas!”

It matters not if we are Jewish, agnostic, or atheistic. The message is the same: “Merry!” Merry to the max. Merry, as in ebulliently happy. Merry as in hopeful, moral, and looking to a bright future.

The Forgotten Man (and Woman) has gotten his country back, and it feels good. As Trump makes his “Thank You” tour of states that put him over the top, Fox News, unlike the malcontent Mainstream Media, carries his happy voice. He is like a kid in a candy store, except the prize isn’t candy, but a vision for a renewed economically sound America, safe in its borders, and rejuvenated in its energy.

Obama could have brought America together. He could have made America strong. He could have bridged the gulf between white and black, rich and poor, young and old, immigrant and resident. Instead, he chose to do the opposite, dividing this great country into warring boxes. He chose to play out his personal pathologies he experienced as a fatherless child. Better, he should have done it on the psychiatrist’s couch, rather than to play it out on one of the greatest nations on earth.

But, that was then, and this is now.

Tonight, Christmas lights are aglow. And an unlikely savior of a man with bright yellow hair is transforming America, not in his image, but in its own image: a shining city on a hill, protected by genius documents called the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

America is back. Through its new leader, President-Elect Trump, we are standing taller. Middle America, the backbone of the country, is again on board. Tonight, there is nothing we cannot do. The lights of Christmas glistening on snowy cities lead the way for many this holiday season.

Despite lingering doubts on the political left, many Americans now are at peace. Many realize we are in good hands. Capable hands. There is no artifice. No pretense. No condescension. There is only one man, standing astride history, promising to Make America Great again.

May God bless America and our new lease on life. And may God bless Donald J. Trump, an unexpected man in an unexpected age.

Fall of Rome? Fall of America? Not so fast, professors.

Because America begs to differ. The epitaph has not yet been written on this great nation. Perhaps, its writers will want to hold off for another four or more years.

The jury is still out on America’s destiny. One man, backed by the Founding Fathers and many other good men in between is rewriting history.

The predictions of America’s demise may have been terribly mistaken. Our best days may be ahead. With Trump at the helm, we now have a chance to rewrite Toynbee’s cyclical theory of history.

Clearly, in this happy time, the joy of Christmas is to be shared across this great land with all Americans.

Merry Christmas, America!
