MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

By | January 15, 2017

I really am looking forward to posting articles about God, family, faith, reformation of the church, science, and miracles again. But the political silly season isn’t over.

In the United States, our cultural mentality is not normal nor is it peaceful. If you believe the liberal news outlets from New York City, the elite citizens are disturbed.

The liberals are releasing venom and violence in the media against conservatives who voted for Mr. Trump. They say conservatives are intolerant, but they are now acting vindictively.

They are going nuts because America won’t have a woman democrat liberal sworn in as president on the 20th. It is like the big cities in the northeast and on the west coast are gripped with an epidemic of paranoid schizophrenic. The disease came on suddenly, since the election last November.

They are going nuts because we won’t have a woman democrat sworn in as president on the 20th. To me, it is like the big cities in the northeast and on the west coast are gripped with an epidemic of paranoid schizophrenic. The disease came on suddenly, since the election last November. Evidence of their paranoia is on view.

Privileged artists (singers, performers) live extravagant, comfortable lives from the money that “we the people” pay them to entertain us. Then they use their fame as a platform to dump on our values like it was beneath them to rub elbows with ordinary yokels like us. They don’t live in the same world as we do. They despise us.

They don’t work 9-5. They have housekeepers, cooks, babysitters, personal trainers, and bodyguards. They don’t wait in the cold in a long line of cars, many with dents and some without insurance, for their child to walk out of school so they can drive them home. We do; they don’t. We take our kids to church and school programs. They don’t. We worry about paying medical bills or how to handle retiring on Social Security. They don’t. We worry about high utility bills. They worry about their airplane or their plastic surgery.

These privileged actors and actresses from Hollywood look down on us and scold us, we the people, who live in the real world in middle America. They act like descendants from Mt. Olympus, stooping down low and condescending to speak to common folks to try and save us from ourselves. If only we “deplorable” voters could see the light, then we could become like them. But they don’t see how arrogant and out of touch they really are.

Nope. I don’t choose to worship idols. I hold old fashioned values. I cling to my guns and hold on to my Bible. I bow my head to pray over my meals and I uphold the family traditions that made America great. Even if I did have a lot of money, I would never choose to live in their moral bankruptcy nor be ambivalent about America.

I don’t want intellectual elitists to ever take control of America. That happened already in the Soviet Union. It destroyed their nation and it exported the cult of communism to the detriment and the deaths of millions of people. I’d rather have farmers, merchants, soldiers, businessmen or teachers run our nation. I want people who reverence God and appreciate our unique national history to be in charge. I’m glad a macho-man conservative won the election, not an out-of-touch liberal.

I’m glad a macho-man conservative won the election, not an out-of-touch man-hater who thinks a village can replace the family unit.  I’m glad Mr. Trump is not afraid of nor intimidated by the media or “group-think” gurus who cast a spell over people.

As our 45th President takes the Oath of Office, I will be praying for his success. I will ask the Lord to keep him safe, to keep him humble, and give him wise advisors. I want him to boost our economy and prevent our enemies from attacking us. There is only so much that any one leader can do. There are things we as citizens must do. As parents we can do three things: keep the covenant, honor God, and raise the kids.

There is only so much that any one leader can do. The strength of America is in our families and in our small businesses. There are things we as citizens must do. As parents we can do three things: keep the covenant, honor God, and raise the kids.

I hope that Mr. Trump will stick to his values and implement his vision and fight to make America great again. Like Ross Perot once said to some Washington politicians, “Defend the Country. Deliver the mail. And leave us alone.”

    Mr. Wood,

    I read your article with a great deal of interest. I too share many of the same values that you express, including a deep reverence to God. What I find disturbing is the divisive tone of your message. I’ve had the privilege of meeting and working with a number of people throughout this great country (from coast to coast) who are hard working, and espouse family values. These people have different ideas and approaches to how this great country should be run (liberals, conservatives and “somewhere in the middle”), but the large majority of them share the desire for our leaders to be successful. As a religious leader in our area, I would hope that your message could be more understanding of our differences while continuing to espouse the values that we hold dear.

    Mr. Wood ,

    I have had the opportunity to read your article in the Vista paper and I was intrigued and disturbed. As a minister I thought to myself surely he doesn’t see that not only his is word polarizing but uninformed and damaging as a minister of the gospel.
    I am an American born citizen from the south born and raised. Raised in church from the time I was 5 years old. My father is a musician here in Northwest Arkansas at a local church. I accepted the Lord in my life when I was a teenager and believe him to be ALL there is.
    You are saying people that have a issue with Trump are Elitist and don’t work 9-5. They have butlers, nannies and don’t take there kids to school. They don’t hold the values that you feel represent what America that you say isn’t great. As a African American woman who travels and has traveled outside of the U.S and spend a great with people who are not from here I would say America is Great already.
    While Hilary would not have been my first pick I can honestly say neither would Trump for those reason that you stated. Here we are though and I truly believe that God knows what he is doing and trust that He has is all under control despite whoever enters office at any point.
    My point is this Trump doesn’t know the cost or milk and neither does his wife. He has nannies, butlers, and has not taken his children to school. He pays a great deal for the lifestyle he has, and he isn’t ashamed o it. He has a beautiful family and let’s face it Ivanka will be America’s favorite daughter, because she is peacefully wanting us all to have better. I don’t believe there is no one that enters that office wants any President to fail, because that means we all fail. It means we all suffer. There is always a better way or different way to go about something it is not always wrong.
    I feel that your “opinion” should have more facts in it as a minister of the Gospel. Everyone rich or poor has who lives here wants peace and respect. Those elite people also employ people and they employ people of all walks, so does Trump. There is nothing wrong with being smart and rich. If there is then you should have a problem with President Trump. The issues we have are not Republican or Democrat the problem is we don’t communicate effectively and respectfully to understand each other. As a writer and a minister I expected more I expected compassion and peace. There is no us versus them there is only WE as Americans. WE the PEOPLE.
    I just asked that as a minister that you use your power to bring peace and respect to all if us. I ask that you consider that the GOD we serve would not want us pitting against each other. You have a voice to the people and I pray that God uses you to bring us HIS word and show the people of all walks who GOD is.
