      I have a friend Luis who escaped Cuba in 1960, he talks the same way about how proud he is to be living in the greatest country in the world.

        That video is super powerful. Too bad that’s not played all over the news networks for people to watch

          People here don’t realize how good they’ve got it. Some of them are angry because they didn’t accomplish things given the opportunities they had.

            It might be already screwed up, even say two terms of Trump can't fix it.

                All the opportunities in the world aren’t worth a tinker’s damn if there isn’t character and fortitude to help take advantage of them. The gentleman in the video is what the real backbone of America was made of...people that wanted something better than where they came from and all they wanted was a chance. They did the rest. That part of America is still there, but it’s been cast aside by the free lunch crowd.

                    I did nothing except post some stuff on a message board while the left ran over us. Well I did at least vote. Now all I can do Is vote for a blond headed loudmouth New Yawker hoping he can somehow stem the tide. It’s an onslaught against us right now.

                    A big mistake Trump has made is running the 2020 campaign with 2016 campaign tactics. That was then. This is now. He needs to start running his current campaign acting like the President and Commander-in-Chief and tone down some of the divisive rhetoric. He’s losing the narrative to a ghost who hides in his basement.

                        I’d heard about it. What a blessing to hear it. Thanks.

                        I grew up across the street from a Cuban family that escaped in 1961. Similar story, same lessons shared repeatedly with us. This guy should be featured at the RNC.

                          I was so inspired by the video that I posted it to Facebook. Don't think it changes any minds, but I am fighting the good fight. #America

                            I've never voted absentee, I need to see my ballot go into that machine so I can feel sure it was counted. I've always like to go on the regular Election Day too, but not this year. God forbid I get hit by a bus the week before. I will be there waiting for them to open up shop in the morning on the very first day of the early voting period.

                            Im a 100% Trump supporter and most Trump supporters like me, and I presume you, don’t care how presidential Trump is. That is true. My point is that Trump needs to run a more Presidential campaign to peel off some of the Democrats who don’t know if they can vote for Trump or not but who are thinking about it. Trump already has his base locked up. The question is will it be enough this time around given coronavirus, the economy, and BLM.

                            After Trump wins he can go back to being Trump.

                              I hope much of what you say is because we are worn down from the constant negative onslaught of negativism and and dirty unthinkable tactics from the left. Maybe a little loss of confidence is good because I know we haven't lost our resolve.

                              Those aren't the people he needs to convince to vote for him. He's already got his base locked up. That should account for about 35-40% of the vote. Still needs about 15-20% more to offset the voting fraud campaign the left will throw at him.

                              As for the thread title...its already too late. The America this man came here for is dead and gone.

                              I hired a cuban to paint some apartments in Atlanta. Jose was from a wealthy family and was an officer in the Cuban army. He joined with Castro to fight Batista and when Castro announced he was Marxist-Leninist soon to be communist Jose joined the rebels to fhen fight against Castro. He was imprisoned twice, his family paid a ransom to have him released, ultimately made his way to Mariel where he managed to board a fishing boat and made his way to the US. Like the gentleman in the video, Jose loves America.

                                The big mistake was not assuming that all the changes had to be made in one term, and trusting that anybody who was traditional belonged in this administration. Every head of department needed to be replaced almost immediately and replaced with those with no ties to the government.
                                Perhaps in a second term a warp speed draining of the swamp might happen.

                                    The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
