The election is over and the President Elect says his intention is to drain the swamp, meaning get rid of the useless garbage that for so long has run both parties and brought progress to a stand still in our nation’s capitol. Good luck in doing that Donald for both major parties liked the Gravy Train they were riding and did not wish to see any change in the manner in which they were enriching themselves. You are going to be fighting an up-hill battle to do that. Remember, “When you are up to you’re rump in alligators it is difficult to remember that your original intention was to drain the swamp.” You are going to be attacked on everything you do or say from both sides of the aisle and our past President will be leading the charge to discredit you in any way and manner that he can. He is a slime ball of the highest degree and not worthy to have ever filled that great office.

I believe Trump is putting together a first rate team to assist him in making good and proper decisions as President and anything positive will be a huge benefit to the country after the eight years of disaster that Obama has brought to the United States of America. I would love to see John Bolton as our Secretary of State for he has the experience and the intellect to fill that position, I believe far better than anyone else at this time. Fellow citizens, we are looking up from that Valley of Despair to that great Shinny City on the hill that President Ronald Reagan spoke of so many years ago. May he rest in peace.
