Why I'm Voting For President Trump...

Here are some reasons why I'll be voting to re-elect the President on November 3, 2020...

Democrats seem to believe that President Trump is as much of a threat as Neo-Nazi and former Grand Wizard of the KKK David Duke when he ran for Louisiana Governor against Edwin Edwards in 1991.

Edwards won with the slogan, "Vote For The Crook: It's Important."

Despite corruption, he was endorsed by President George H.W. Bush, and the Louisiana GOP leadership repudiated Duke, winner of the Republican primary.

The Biden campaign appears to be following a similar strategy, recruiting prominent Republicans such as Colin Powell, John Kasich and Christine Todd Whitman in addition to the Lincoln Project, while focusing on charges of racism.

However, Trump is no David Duke, so America doesn't need to elect a crook. 

Unlike Duke, Trump has never been a member of the KKK or a Neo-Nazi. Nor has he supported school segregation--as Joe Biden did in the 1970s.

Far from embracing racism, he aggressively seeks support from African-American voters. Black Voices for Trump has generated increased poll numbers and endorsements.

Likewise, he doesn't pander to anti-Semites, unlike Joe Biden, who accepted support from Rev. Louis Farrakhan, Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Iran.

Unlike Biden, President Trump pursues pro-Israeli and pro-Jewish policies, and works with Jews Choose Trump in the Jewish community. He was recently endorsed by thirteen Orthodox rabbis

Not the record of a racist.

Is Joe Biden a crook? 

I think recent reports in The New York Post highlighting payments from China, Ukraine and elsewhere to the Biden family, show that he is.

Is Trump a crook?

I believe the failed impeachment effort revealed that he is not. Indeed, his Senate trial made me realize he is more honest than I thought possible.

So Trump wins hands down on character.

When it comes to policies, Biden represents a return to disappointments of the Obama Administration -- fewer jobs, more wars, increased social division, surrender to China and Iran (note: I voted for President Obama in 2008).

Trump has not started new wars. He eliminated ISIS, brought peace to the Middle East and the Korean Peninsula. He stimulated high-paying jobs in energy and construction and brought manufacturing back from China. He put America back in the manned space launch business with missions to the moon and Mars and established the US Space Force. 

Trump actually succeeded rather well fighting Coronavirus. He hired Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx as advisors. He provided ventilators, masks, and hospital beds to avoid overwhelming the medical system, in addition to buying time with his China travel ban. He encouraged new treatments that work well enough he could personally recover within in a few days, despite age and obesity.

America's case fatality rate is about half of Sweden's, and lower than Australia's, Canada's, France's or England's -- indicating comparatively superior progress.

Incredibly, President Trump has kept so many of his promises that his campaign posted a searchable database just to keep track.

His character and competence have earned my vote for four more years.
