Potus 45 and Dan Patrick – Saving The Economy Matters Too

Helping someone in genuine need makes the heart feel good.

But governments cannot fill the place for love with money.

A bankrupt government wont be able to do anything for anyone.

As the 45th president of The United Sates has told America, “Our country wasn’t built to be shut down.”

A big, surviving, private economy will give more jobs, more real livelihoods, than governments can.

In this time when human beings across the world are face to face with our own mortality, a truly courageous and profoundly wise man has spoken up for the nation he loves.

I salute 69-year-old Texas Republican, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick,

for the patriotic example of rugged self reliance he displays when he says:

“Let’s get back to work, let’s get back to living, let’s be smart about it, and those of us who are 70-plus, we’ll take care of ourselves.”

Is this is a resurrection of the spirit of the The Greatest Generation?

With herd immunity, nations survive.

Sacrifice can get us there.

I love Dan Patrick.

Mr President, Please Spend Slow.

Dear President Trump,

Like you I love freedom.

In 1945, my dad served under General Douglas MacArthur for freedom and democracy.

Perhaps the proudest acheivement of my lifetime is the grassroots celebration of WW2 which I created at a national heritage waterhole in Indonesia where General MacArthur built his wife a bathroom.

One of the great lessons of World War Two is that the true defence of freedom requires enormous discipline.

No one with sense who has seen the artistic masterpeice, which is your State Of The Union speech this year, can doubt your commitment to understanding World War Two and your care for your people.

I repeat, I salute that work of art as a masterpiece.

Right now, as a person living in a nation whose future safety from totalitarianism still relies on American strength, I respectfully ask you to be very careful how quickly you make new spending promises.

In the 1940’s, nazism in Europe helped caused the collapse of British, French and Dutch colonial power in Southeast Asia.

Japanese imperialism quickly filled the power vacuum till American leadership and industry saved the free world.

All the peoples of the free world still need you to be strong, fair and generous within reason.

And solvent.

God Bless You, Mr President, and God Bless Freedom.

I pray now for trickle-down restraint.

Who wants to join me?
