I performed my original song, "We Are Americans," at the Orlando March 4 Trump rally. It felt like a family reunion, seeing patriots from the early days of the Tea Party movement – lots of hugs. The mood of the rally was electric. Everyone was happy, excited, and fired up about President Trump.
To the fake news media and Obama, who think their orchestrated lying campaign to destroy Trump is working, I say, "Forget about it! It ain't workin'!"
Trump-mania is alive and well, stronger than ever!
Vendors were selling Trump caps, t-shirts, and everything in between, including Trump welcome mats. One elderly patriot adorned head to toe in red, white, and blue Trump paraphernalia told me she feared putting a Trump welcome mat outside her front door. She said it is unfair that we cannot freely support our president without fear of attacks.
The emcee instructed all us speakers to stay close to the stage. However, I knew there were a few speakers ahead of me on the program, so I wandered away into the crowd to chat with people.
A white gentleman shared with me his frustration trying to legally bring his foreign wife to the United States. He said after battling incompetence, submitting a mountain of documents, and spending $18,000 thus far, his wife still has not been granted entry into the U.S. We talked about the unfairness. He is respecting and adhering to our immigration laws. And yet Obama opened the floodgates to illegals, totally unvetted, gifting them government freebies unavailable to Americans. I told the brother to hang in there. Trump is cutting bureaucracy.
I met a white woman who is chair of a Republican Club. She said they have been reaching out to blacks in a sincere attempt to add more diversity to their club. She asked my advice. I chuckled and said, "Good luck with that!" I have been trying to get blacks to break their mindless loyalty to the Democrats for over a decade. Still, I told the patriot sister to keep trying. With God's help, suddenly mindsets can change.
I asked a young white kid around 14 years old about the unique flag he was waving: blue with a crescent moon and the word "liberty." The kid was an encyclopedia regarding American flags, giving me the full history. Blown away, I said, "You are way too smart for public school. You have got to be homeschooled." He replied, "Yes, sir." I knew it. In my years of touring the country on 14 Tea Party national bus tours, homeschooled kids were strikingly different: calmer, smarter, behaved, and well educated. Leftists are at war with parents, trying to outlaw homeschooling.
Everyone was buzzing about Trump tweeting about Obama bugging Trump Tower before the election. Enraged fake news, Democrats, and other leftists bash Trump for tweeting, declaring it un-presidential. Clearly, Trump supporters, over 60 million Americans, love it. They love Trump speaking directly to them, bypassing leftist operatives disguised as mainstream media.
An Asian female speaker addressing the crowd said it took her 35 years to become a legal U.S. citizen with the right to vote. She expressed how proud she was to be an American. The audience went nuts. They loved her.
Representatives from Hispanics, women, and blacks for Trump spoke from the stage. They were warmly and enthusiastically embraced by the crowd. We were family, united in our love for our country, excited about President Trump and his agenda: putting America first and making her great again. Such was the theme of the day.
I chatted with blacks at the rally to support Trump. Interestingly, they were entrepreneurs. It is funny how when you're a businessperson trying to achieve your American Dream, you are well aware of the roadblocks placed in your path by high taxes and the government's tyrannical, absurd regulations.
The biggest thing I noticed at the Orlando rally for Trump was the obvious political growth and political sophistication of the participants. Back in the early days of the Tea Party movement, we were naive patriots. We thought we were fighting only the socialist policies of a left-leaning president and the Democrats.
Today, we know our enemies: radical leftist Obama and his army of thugs; the fake news media; the corrupt Washington, D.C. political establishment (Republicans and Democrats); and NeverTrumps – united in their mission to destroy Trump's presidency.
We the People are politically well educated and well organized. We are spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually locked and loaded, really for battle – really to support and defend our new president.
Please continue moving forward, Mr. President. We the People have your back!
