This morning I received an email that made some really good points. The only thing I disagree with are the statements that Trump did this "on his own dime" and "single-handedly". He did not.
During the campaign I received hundreds of emails weekly from groups raising money for the Trump campaign. Thousands of people on THEIR own dime contributed to these grassroots efforts across the country and worked tirelessly towards the goal of putting President-elect Trump in the White House.
Yes, Mr. Trump spent some of his billions, but it was these little “no bodies” that has made Donald Trump the President-elect for America. It was "We the People", who when our candidate of choice was not selected in the primaries, reunited to stand behind the candidate who gave us hope once more that we would be safe in our homes; that we would have decent health care; that we and future generations would have the right to life and the pursuit of happiness; the right to freedom of religion, which includes freedom of worship and conscience, freedom to be able to mentions God's name, to say "Merry Christmas"; freedom of speech, to call sin ... sin, without fear of government reprisal, and that things could go back to the days when our government and those we elected to represent "We the People" actually worked for us again ... not just to line their own purses.
Congratulations folks ... WE THE PEOPLE did it!
It just goes to show you that when we unite together with one mind and one purpose we little no bodies can accomplish our goals and can make a difference!
Just Me ... Katie

Buckle up, Buttercups! - No authors name attached
Three things to acknowledge.......
Obama, Economy, Border Security, Election 2016, Health Care, We The People, Obama , Donald J. Trump• Mr. Obama, and, his twisted, failed administration, is almost gone.• Ms. Clinton, was not elected President.• Mr. Trump was elected President.The following is a factual summary of the Trump campaign.... Worth reading!Maybe we’re expecting too little of Trump.Maybe he wasn’t just the better alternative in a dreadful election. Maybe he’s now telling us to expect more. And not to be so shocked any more.We have mass cop shootings, riots in our streets, ambushed cops, double digit inflation, bombs blowing up in our cities, cities that are shooting galleries, a skyrocketing jobless rate, no economic growth, private land being confiscated, the worst racial tension in a lifetime, God run out of schools, more abortions than ever, illegal aliens pouring into the country, sick veterans receiving lousy care and lousy attention … AND ... under Barack Obama, a national debt that DOUBLED in just seven years … to more than $19 TRILLION Dollars!We were ripe for Trump. And he knew it. In June of last year, Trump entered the race for president. In just over a year, he's single-handily defeated the Republican party. Entirely. Completely. In fact, it was so thorough, the party now suffers from an identity crisis.Trump even dismantled and dismissed the brand and value of the Bush family. And now the Clinton 's. And Obama is petrified that he’s next. Numbed that he’ll rub out programs that were improperly installed using improper edicts …. and erase a legacy that never really existed anyway.Talk about an over-night house-cleaning! To lots and lots of folks, this is some fun s**t.Trump exposed the fraud perpetrated on the American public by Hillary Clinton … and her drifting husband … and their sham-foundation. He brought her to her knees. Literally. People in fright go wobbly. She did it for all of us to see. Look for more.And now it’s time for the disinfectant.Trump has thoroughly debunked and decimated any value the news media once had. Yesterday, he gathered together all of the bigwigs … at his invitation … and he spanked them. Woodshed-style. Held little back. Pounding them as we wish we could.Today … they’re all walking around in medical jock-straps. And smelling like Lysol. Their ship has titanic'd.Trump has world leaders talking about him as if he’s already president. Some even rushed to make the first bow or the first call or to be the first brown-noser. Powerful presidents don’t have to be liked by others. Fear will do. I doubt Mikhail Gorbachev much liked Reagan’s command to "Tear down this wall” … but he did. Obama was never feared. He was mocked.Most can remember when we were feared. And loved. And respected. And looked to all the time. That was before we became un-great.Trump unified the “silent majority” in a way that should scare modern liberals as never before.He's whipped the entire political establishment into pure panic. Exposed them for who they are … and for what they are. And no one was spared. Not Democrats nor Republicans nor Libertarians. Every one in the swamp was fair game.Trump authored a brand new message to the taken-for-granted African-American community …... "At this point, what do you have to lose?” And they knew the answer instinctively. And it seems lots of Latinos understood his message more clearly, too ... and disappointed the media … and joined him.One man has done all of this in one year. One guy … on his own dime.And already the media fops have tattooed him as a do-nothing guy … and unserious man. A pretender. That’s rich s**t.Anyone can claim that Trump was a lousy candidate. And scream that he’ll make a lousy president. That’s your right. Just don’t ever say he’s not effective... Or strong-willed.... Or determined.... Or a success..... Or a winner.And a survivor.He survived feminists galore, FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, and the New York Times. He rolled over Reuters, the AP, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper … and pretty much anyone else who tried to orchestrate a lying narrative … so they could flip the American public and change the political winds. Trump blew that wind right back at ‘em.The press colluded … and they failed. Miserably. And they’re still colluding … and still failing.And now we all see the national wounds.High school football players on their knees during the national anthem … because the press propaganda-ed them. Weepy college fops too distraught… Woe is me! … to go to class … because they’ve been emotionally warped by Sixties’ retreads who rule the schools and won’t let this nation move past “Hey, man!”, a power-fist salute, and crappy Joni Mitchell songs. They all look like assholes.We have more than one generation completely polluted with crap-nonsense about everything from sex to food to music. Nothing’s real anymore. It’s all a big, s***ty blur.And the saddest reality of all? We have a generation of children that hates America . And they don’t even know why.And the most disrespected of all is this silent majority … that endlessly mocked crowd of “head-down folks” who make this country go … day after day after day.“Deplorables” did it. That was the last word-straw. Pushed ‘em all over the line. And they pushed back. And they’re not done. Just as Trump’s not done.Buckle up, buttercups. Reality’s on the way.It was Donald Trump who turned all of this upside-down. In one year. Single-handedly.I guess there’s hope yet for all of us lightweights out there.I'm kinda lovin' this.
