With less than 100 days till the election, the issues are complex but the choice is simple.

Remember the first rule of politics, first you win, then you make policy. There is no second place. Same can be said if Joe BidenJoe BidenHillary Clinton responds to Chrissy Teigen tweet: 'I love you back' Supreme Court rejects Trump effort to shorten North Carolina mail-ballot deadline Overnight Defense: Trump campaign's use of military helicopter raises ethics concerns | Air Force jets intercept aircraft over Trump rally | Senators introduce bill to expand visa screenings MORE were to be elected president.

The binary choice at the top of the ticket is one of America First as is the responsibility of the president and not America Alone as President TrumpDonald John TrumpHillary Clinton responds to Chrissy Teigen tweet: 'I love you back' Police called after Florida moms refuse to wear face masks at school board meeting about mask policy Supreme Court rejects Trump effort to shorten North Carolina mail-ballot deadline MORE has said often. Being part of a global community is significantly different from the globalist goals of the left.


After 44 years in Washington, D.C., as a senator and then vice president, Joe Biden has not delivered the solutions he now claims he will if elected president.

There is a binary choice between choosing what is best for America and her sovereign goals over decades of failure by Joe Biden who would be controlled by the leftist wing and the crony-capitalist wing of the Democratic Party. In a Joe Biden presidency, House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiPelosi: Trump should accept election results 'like a man' The spectre of pension failures haunts this election Microsoft: Iranian hacking group targeting attendees of major international security conferences MORE (D-Calif.) would wield immense power and Democrats would surround Biden with a combination of the Clintonian Democrats and the new socialist Democrats. Sen. Bernie SandersBernie SandersOcasio-Cortez says she doesn't plan on 'staying in the House forever' What a Biden administration should look like Ocasio-Cortez: 'Trump is the racist visionary, but McConnell gets the job done' MORE (I-Vt.) would hold a great deal of influence over the platform. They can protect Biden now during the campaign season but it’s America that would need protection from a Biden presidency.

This isn’t just a fight between two political parties. It’s a binary choice between America moving forward as we have done throughout our history, versus backwards governance that would drag America further apart under Democrats.

Democrats like to put Americans in boxes and amalgamate them for their power and control, but historically America is successful when united under sovereign interests even with differences within.

 About now, some of you will ask: What about the issues that divide Americans? Yes, there are issues of racism in America but it is not systemic on a national scale. There are localized issues that are dealt with when exposed and sadly often through a tragedy. As generations change fewer and fewer localized examples exist.


On the “Black” cultural issues, a real study of history will demonstrate that under Republican principles Blacks in America have advanced. The advancements of not only Blacks but all ethnicities validates the success of a center-right nation.

Democrats and the now socialist Democrats and far left elements have a history of sounding good but when you count the votes and assess the real actions, they don’t deliver. For Democrats, solutions to the various issues are a threat to their power grab. Without wedge issues Democrats would have to come up with and eventually may run out of ideas on how to divide America.

Emancipation, led by Republican President Abraham Lincoln, then reconstruction and the decades-long battles reached fruition with voting rights and civil rights. Then a new phase began.

I disagree with any form of affirmative action. It is a form of discrimination in favor of one group over another. That said, the surge of Blacks into higher education resulted in a newer generation of higher income earners who did not always return to the urban environment they grew up in. Many Blacks also came from rural areas in America and then went on to work in the major cities. This is not a direct swap but it was the beginning of a mass economic migration based on improvement in education. More choices were available to Blacks.

When more Blacks began to exercise economic power, even though voting Democrat, a new reality for the hardened left began to emerge. They knew that economic growth means more will likely move to the right.

The specter of racism had to be raised again because they could not have economic exodus by a group whose political power they controlled. It was the fault of the Black community to be so wholly bound to the Democrat Party and in doing so surrendered their political power.

Today what we see is a violent leftist movement that has been tacitly or openly approved by the democratic socialists and many old guard Democrats. The powerbrokers would like to use this energy to retake governorships, the U.S. Senate and the presidency.

Donald Trump will have a difficult reelection battle in the remaining 96 days and a very short time to make his case to and for the American people. Trump needs to demonstrate a vision of law and order, economic growth and sovereign interests which helps us realize national unity. There are many other issues but a vision of a future of individual freedom over one bound to a government-run society will likely attract more voters to Trump.
