Usually when a socialist leader starts looking for funds to redistribute to the groups he feels have been denied their basic human rights, like birth control, childcare, free housing, free food, free healthcare and free college tuition, etc. the first budget he wants to cut is national defense.
President Barack Obama hasn’t been any different and he’s gotten almost predictable in where he wants to get the money for his freebie handouts to the section of society that thinks burglarizing a home or robbing a liquor store is a good way to supplement the family income.
For the past 8 years, president Obama’s idea of defense has been to go to our enemies and bow at their feet or apologize until the sun comes up for America even existing.
Now that the election of Trump has signaled a major change in the direction America’s voting majority wants this country to go, vice president-elect, Mike Pence spoke to The Heritage foundation and announced that “the Obama era of weakening our national defenses is over.”
Pence spoke at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. to outline some of President-elect Donald Trump’s priorities in his first 100 days in office. Those include national security, economic prosperity and the Supreme Court; these are also all priorities promoted in the work of the Heritage Foundation, which Pence praised for its “underpinning commitment to free enterprise” and “ensuring the ongoing vitality of the American Dream.”
“We truly do believe that our President-elect has secured a mandate for leadership,” Pence said, adding his confidence in Trump’s ability to “Make America Great Again.”
Pence made reference to the fact that the Obama administration had backed off some of America’s prior commitments by saying that America has “walked away from our commitment to being that arsenal of democracy in the world.”
Pence added that since 1991, America’s active duty armed forces has decreased from 2 million to 1.3 million members, the Navy has shrunk to 272 ships from 500, the Air Force is roughly one-third smaller since that period of time and our standing army is the smallest it has been since World War II.
Needless to say, we conservatives are extremely happy that Trump and Pence will have a pro-military stance when it comes to national defense.
For way too long we’ve had to watch a weak-kneed president kowtow to the world and beg them to cooperate with him.
Now, America can, again, become that formidable presence in the world, she once was!
