This Bleeding Heart Conservative has a message for TRUMP!

“O LORD, I cry out to you. I will keep on pleading day by day.”
Psalms 88:13 NLT

I know this will seem hollow. I know how my Democratic friends feel about their loss in this election. I have felt this way in each presidential election for the last 8 years. I know you think this is different with all the rhetoric from this election spewed by both sides. When your party keeps telling you the end is near if Trump wins, you believe them. Well the end may be near. Jesus may come yet tonight or even before Trump takes office. But, I am pleading with you to DIAL it back. Do we really want our legacy to be death and destruction in the streets? You MAY get exactly what you are asking for if you just wait 4 more years. The Republican Party, the conservative movement is at a turning point in history. We have it all! We have the Presidency, the legislative branch, and will take control of the judiciary. We have 4 years (more likely two years) to DO SOMETHING!

IT is time for US to put our money where our mouth is. The reason for electing DJT was to drain the swamp. The reason is 50% of us believed we had to see a different direction to our country. We have a chance to put up or shut up. Will our system work? Let's see!

 I consider myself an old fashion, bleeding heart conservative. We have to fix things and fix them now. We conservatives, can not believe we have a monopoly on what is right. We have to bridge the divide of this country by listening, REALLY listening to the 50% that lost this election. WE HAVE ONE CHANCE. We have only one chance to REALLY make a difference and solve some of humanities toughest problems. We may never get this perfect opportunity again. DON'T MESS THIS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here are some   of MY BLEEDING HEART CONSERVATIVE, IDEALS:

1. Our number one problem is to take care of our inner cities and minority communities. NO, I am not saying to just give more handouts. BUT, we need REAL investment in these communities. REAL JOBS and hope. We need better schools. We have to pay for better teachers in these systems. Give incentives to try new things. Pay for the brightest teachers to work there and rebuild there infrastructure to make those schools train minorities for high paying jobs. I'm not saying turn control to the Ed. Unions. They are worse than the democrats. They talk and do nothing. I'm saying to fire those that just collect a pay check and hire those that want to build relationships with kids, teach beyond the test, and give 24/7 to serving students where they are.

2. Humanitarian Aid WITH Military Action - We need to destroy ISIS. We all talk about keeping Muslims out, Well let's fix the reason they want to come in the first place. We need to use our military might to destroy the brutal muslim regimes causing this crisis. While we do that, let's also use the military might of the U.S. to build protective cities for refugees over in the middle east. Keep them in their homeland, provide schools, jobs, and humanitarian aid to serve them while we oust the dictators and radicals in charge. ISIS must be destroyed.

3. Secure the Border - We can secure the border while still treating illegals with dignity. We must stop the mass migration first AND then provide pathways to citizenship. BUT, we must deal harshly with those that come in and violate ANY of our laws. Compassion with strength.

4. JOBS, JOBS, JOBS - We need to put people to work with REAL jobs, not government funded jobs. We need to spend money like it is going out of style to build infrastructure in  our country. But, the red tape and dumb rules need to GO! People need to be given hope through work. NOT GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS. Small Businesses are the REAL job creators, give them the tools to get it done! BUSINESS IS NOT THE ENEMY.

5. Protect the RIGHTS of ALL people, Christians, the family, the unborn, and yes, gays, lesbians, etc. I know this is not popular. Discrimination of any kind is NOT BIBLICAL. I can protect their rights and not endorse their lifestyle.  But, I should not let protecting the minority become more important than protecting the majority. ALL LIVES MATTER! HATRED HAS NO PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY. I strongly believe in the BIBLE and believe living a gay lifestyle is against the design of God. BUT, I believe that ALL people are to be created equal. ALL people have the right to pursue happiness, NOT JUST MY HAPPINESS. Do I want them to repent and come to JESUS!? ABSOLUTELY, do their lives matter, YES, YES, YES!

6. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO GET OUT OF MY LIFE!!!!!!! The government does NOT do anything well AT ANY LEVEL. But it is exponentially worse the further away from the people decisions are made. The federal government is TOO BIG! Taxes are TOO High! WE NEED TO STOP SPENDING MONEY WE DO NOT HAVE! THIS INCLUDES HEALTH CARE. The present system is a ticking time bomb. It is a disaster. BUT, the idea of making sure EVERYONE has health care is solid. So, We need to fix this. We need repeal Obamacare and then REALLY get together so everyone has equal opportunity AT AN AFFORDABLE  cost to live in the shadow of cancer, and other medical issues.

I have more ideas. But Mr. Trump, and the Republican Party better be listening. YOU CAN DO THIS. Just leave the PARTY RHETORIC at home and work TOGETHER to make this a great palce to live! AMEN! AMEN! and AMEN!
