Don’t make me shut this country down Mexico

That was then- “I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall.” – Trump presidential announcement speech

This is now- “I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” – Trump tweet 7-29-18

When Trump started campaigning about building a wall to keep “‘Rapists, animals, drug dealers” out of the United States it was going to cost, Mexico mind you, $4 billion, or maybe $6 billion to $7 billion and then no more than $10 billion or less. Now the price tag is anywhere from $25 billion to $70 billion depending on how long, how high and how much land we have to buy. Yes, we have to buy, because you see Trump is no longer talking about “I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall” now he is threatening to shut the government down if you and I don’t agree to pay for it.

So let’s say the wall cost $45 billion, give or take a billion here or there. How are we going to pay for it if Mexico won’t? Well we can borrow the money from China. Hell what’s another $45 billion when we already owe them $1.19 trillion. I am not sure what we can put up for collateral. Maybe Montana, no Alabama. Yea let’s give them Alabama.

I would think we would get a pretty good interest rate from China, maybe 3%, a cool $1.3 billion a year in interest. But, hey, it’s not a big deal we aren’t going to have to pay it back our kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, great-great-grandkids should be able to figure it out. The important thing is this, the great Donald Trump promised us a wall. Never mind he also promised us that WE wouldn’t have to pay for it, don’t lose sight of what is really important, he is going to deliver a wall even if he has to bankrupt and shut this country down. Remember “Promises made. Promises almost delivered.” 

Maybe you have caught on to what Trump’s theme will be for the mid-year elections. You haven’t? Let me help you; <Plug Republican candidates name here>is strong on crime and borders, loves our Military, Vets and Second Amendment. Get out and vote for <Plug Republican candidates name here>, in short FEAR. Fear got him in the White House and he is cashing all his chips in that fear will keep him there.

In 99 days let’s help him out. Let’s give him something to really fear. Let’s show him what angry Democrats really look like. At this point I don’t want him impeached cause I don’t want a President Pence. I do want him embarrassed, humiliated, and most of all neutered. I want the headlines in The Washington Post to read “Trump tweets again. Who gives a shit.” I want to see a reporter for MSNBC tell Sarah Sanders to shut the hell up and answer the question. And I want to see the Deplorable nation selling lemonade in front of their shacks so they can pay for their mans wall he promised them.

Just a dream? I don’t think so. It’s closer than you think.

  2. Trump must go, yes, but the hard part is dealing with all the people who wanted a President who would hurt people so bad they were willing to break the country to get him.

    Better yet, let’s borrow the Wall itself from China. I understand they have a Great one they aren’t really using these days. Any wall Trump manages to put up will be removed by the next President anyway, as a first step towards mending fences with Mexico (our second-biggest export market) after all of Trump’s insults. We can promise China to give it back then.

    I disagree. Trump in the Presidency is too dangerous and will do too much damage if he’s left in office for a full term. Pence is a religious wingnut, but he’s far more of a conventional politician, and is regarded by his fellow fundies as weak-willed.

    Leaving Trump in office when we could remove him (assuming we ever get to that point) would ratify the gross abuses and insults to the world which Trump has perpetrated. And it would ratify an illegitimate leader foisted on us by foreign interference.
