When Barack Obama won as the FIRST African American President, I was excited to see what he would accomplish. I thought he brought a level of excitement from communities that felt underrepresented.
I thought he would start with Chicago. After all, that was where he hailed from. He saw firsthand what needed to be changed and what needed to be brought into the city. That’s not what happened.
President Obama lost a great opportunity to enact positive change. He did have some great achievements along the way. But also had some missteps and missed opportunities to help the communities that campaigned for him and truly believed in his hope and change.

How do we win against China?
I think our politicians have put us in a very difficult situation. We have outsourced a majority of our manufacturing to China. China has been guilty of stealing many of our intellectual properties over the last 30 years. They are the 2nd largest super-power in the world right now.
But I am not really concerned about China attacking us from the outside. They have been successful in doing it from the inside out. They are smart.
They have come into our country and bought our companies. They are sending their students into our colleges by the thousands. And they’ve come in and bought our people in academia. Gaining access to very sensitive places in America. For example, there are 3 million acres in TX that are owned by the Chinese.
Why are we not concerned about another country buying our land? Why have we allowed our politicians to place us in this position? We must control our own destiny and manufacturing. Especially when it comes to our medications. Why are we not producing those in the US?
How do we control this? We implement tariffs. We bring the manufacturing home.

The Afghanistan Withdrawal was a very challenging situation for us.
We had been in Afghanistan for 20 years and spent several TRILLION dollars of taxpayer money there. We’ve had injuries and deaths. 2,500 people died there and countless others were injured.
We lost our money. We lost our equipment. 80 billion dollars worth. We have nothing to show for the time we spent there. The Taliban took back over immediately. They will not be the most well-equipped terrorist cell in the world…and using our own weapons and machinery against us.
We have to stop trying to change the culture of other countries. We can’t turn them into democracies when it’s just not feasible.
What was the thought process and ultimately… who approved this decision?
