This is a most exciting period right now in America if We The People allow it to be. I remember when Mitt Romney was running for president in 2012 and he was stating the fact that he will bring business back to our economy after four years of deterioration under Obama, the problem is and he meant well and I believed very strongly that he would do it, he left out one important ingredient in the recipe and that was he did not talk about the American worker. The worker wanted to hear him say it, this was the silent American, the blue collar Democratic voter that President Reagan was able to win over and Romney didn’t because he didn’t talk about it and I’m sure he meant the same thing when he was talking about bringing back business. But you see, this is what Trump brought forward, a discussion of finding work for the unemployed and the workers who were worried about losing theirs and stressing the fact that if companies left America lets say for Mexico or China if they were to bring those produced products into America he would slap a 35% tax on the goods.If you haven’t heard the news by now, Carrier negotiated a deal with Trump that it would not be moving one thousand employees to Mexico. This was Trump defining a problem that must be stopped and you can say this would be defined as populism. “support for the concerns of ordinary people.”the quality of appealing to or being aimed at ordinary people.”
The following was published by the Daily Caller: “Carrier Employee Issues Heartfelt Thank You To Trump For Helping 1,000 American Workers Keep Their Jobs. Robin Maynard, a 24-year Carrier employee, issued a heartfelt thank you to Donald Trump and Mike Pence during a Wednesday morning interview on Fox News.”
The millions of conservatives as myself should not be threatened by Trumps populist movement because it is the ordinary people like ourselves who are the engine of America and it is Obama’s socialism that that have kept the economy suppressed for the last eight years.
The following was posted by Mike Lee, published by the National Review: “The rough terms of a successful partnership seem obvious. Populism identifies the problems; conservatism develops the solutions; and President Trump oversees the process with a veto pen that keeps everyone honest. Call it “principled populism”: an authentic conservatism focused on solving the problems that face working Americans in a fracturing society and globalizing economy.”
We The People should be the main concern of any president and not just the interest groups. When it comes to the workers, trade, immigration, National security it must all come down as to how it effects We The People and our prosperity. All of this must be in liaison with our Constitution. President- elect Trump has shown and it’s very obvious that he loves America and it’s people. He will use any unorthodox means of making things work even if it might make some groups uncomfortable such as socialists. If Trumps pundits want to call it populism well so be it.
