Left, Left, Left, Right, Left
Supposedly the salute stands for “America first”, but I personally find it very disturbing. Some have remarked on how close it resembles the raising of the hand to God.
And sure enough, some asshats even tried the whole “Heil Trump” statements. Here is National Policy Institute president Richard Spencer shouting, “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”
It seems that so many people are simply voting to keep the other guy from being President and not actually looking at what is best for the country.
Like I said I voted for the man, but you will NOT catch me doing either the salute or the chant. It kills me how gullible people really are. How many Presidential candidates ran stating that they will lower taxes? How many ran on universal healthcare? There are so many broken promises that it isn’t funny. So let’s go back a few election cycles to President George H.W. Bush in 1988, he promised “No New taxes”, you remember that speak “Read my lips, No new taxes”
President Bill Clinton, in 1992, promised a complete overhaul of the health care system to provide universal health care to all Americans. And we all know how that turned out, don’t we?
You know the guy that lied to the citizens of the United States and lied under oath about an affair with Monica Lewinsky. An affair that we the citizens of the United States, didn’t care about, we could care less about the President getting sexual favors from a willing adult intern, while in the Oval Office. Yet, he lied about it under oath.
Then we had President George W. Bush (2000) promise to reduce government spending, to privatize Social Security. During his terms in office, government spending skyrocketed. You can read more in-depth about his broken promises.
Then came President Barack Obama (2008), who kept 48% of his promises, including closing the partisan divide in Washington. In fact, when he left office, the country was more split than ever. You can read more in-depth about his broken promises.
Then came President Donald Trump (2017), who kept around 35% of his promises. You can read more in-depth about his broken promises.
This goes to prove that they are all lying about something and we the people fall for it every time.
Again, nearly 30 years of the same thing. Maybe we need to ask ourselves, why hasn’t anything changed?
If we stopped, took our emotions out of the damn picture, spent a few minutes doing our own research, and didn’t vote out of anger, we might be a stronger country for it.
Don’t worry, it isn’t just supporters of President Trump that were using the modified Nazi salute, both sides were. Strange that the Nazi salute is just a modified “hand to god”.
It’s all a little too much like cults to me, and I’m not drinking any damn Kool-Aid!
