I was upset earlier this week. I read a rant by a guy who hates Trump, I shouldn’t have read it, I should have just scrolled on, but I didn’t. My hope has been that if President Trump accomplishes enough good for America, then people will wake up from their Mainstream Media brainwashing. They would see what I see.
I do believe that a large percentage of free thinking people are waking up. Trump’s approval polling numbers among Black American men have doubled over the past month. Why? Because Black Unemployment is at a historic low 5.9%, and female job seeking has hit a low too -now at 3.4%. Jobless claims are the lowest they have been in 44 years! Even the Trump hating New York Times stated: “We have run out of words to describe how good the job numbers are.” Before anyone contributes the booming economy to Obama, let’s remember that Obama said on June 1st 2016 some “jobs aren’t coming back,” and we needed to accept that fact. The fact is this booming economy we are experiencing has everything to do with Trump policies – cutting the corporate tax rate and cutting regulations. This has allowed hundreds of companies to give bonuses, pay wage increases, and hire! These policies are helping America and Americans.
I talked to my dad about how some people can’t see it. My dad is a successful entrepreneur, who succeeded by working harder and longer than anyone else around him. He told me that some will always refuse to see the truth. Some will always allow emotions to dictate their mindset. They choose to not educate and inform themselves on the difference between policies that work and policies that are all hype and do nothing to SOLVE problems. He called this “willful ignorance,” and told me it was incurable -brutal huh.
This reminded me of Matthew 8, where Jesus casts demons out a man who was possessed, and sent the demons into a herd of pigs nearby -that then ran off a cliff. After this happened the townspeople were upset with Jesus, and asked him to leave! Here Jesus saves a mans life by setting him free from demonic possession and the townspeople wanted Jesus gone! To be in the presence of God’s son, and asking him to leave is crazy to me! These people were willfully ignorant, they did not want the truth (Jesus). Instead these people were upset that their pigs were now gone.
I can quote fact after fact. I can show statistics and I can always perform Satire. Those that have open ears, and eyes, and minds, will be reached. But there are some that no matter what I do, they will not hear it. They will not see it. My dad said this is incurable, I have to have hope though that even the hardest of hearts can be softened through prayer.
In the mean time, I will keep doing what I do, in hopes to reach those with open minds.
