I think that most of us agree that there isn't going to be any GOP landslide in November.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

It doesn't nullify the fact that Trump trounced on two very conservative candidate who could have changed things.

This is so silly @libertybele  If a candidate cannot win against Trump, he isn't going to win against lawfare and the fascist democrats.  Thanks to Trump, the conservative reputation dodged two bullets. This should please you.

Trump failed at the very issue that he won the presidency on building a wall and stopping ILLEGAL immigration.  Where are we at now because of his failed policies

IMO, you could not be more wrong if you tried.  Denied funding for the wall by Republicans, Trump moved onto creative funding and was able to build over 450 miles of the wall, to the specifications requested by ICE, including electronic surveillance and paved roads for quicker response time.

Trump created and signed "Remain in Mexico", ending catch and release and negotiated with Mexico to provide military at its Southern border to stop the influx of illegals into Mexico.

Trump further negotiated and signed agreements with Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras requiring migrants on their way to the US to apply for protections in those countries first. If they fail to do so, US immigration authorities would them back to those countries.  The US began sending back illegals back to these countries in Nov 2019.

He had a super majority for two years!

Check your notes on this claim.  The reality is President Trump never had a Republican majority on immigration in Congress --- super or otherwise.  And yet, he performed miracles and kept his promises to secure the borderl

Frankly, many of us have made suggestions repeatedly on these boards regarding all your questions.  But here is my thoughts to your questions.

1. American sovereignty vs. illegal immigration,

American sovereignty is paramount to me.  PARAMOUNT.  I consider every globalist in the USA a traitor.  Addressing this fact is just as important as addressing the illegal invaders flooding into the USA.  Hang the globalist traitors, every last one of them, and close the border until Congress writes legislation with teeth that control our borders completely.  Deport EVERY ILLEGAL INVADING ALIEN, including the young people Obama opened the door to, the acronym escapes me.

Establish a law that indicates the only refugees into America come via application at one of our embassies, and NOT at our border.


2. The erasure of American individual freedoms by overbearing Federal, state and local governments,

COVID response opened the floodgate for denying our rights as Americans.   New policies must be established regarding pandemics and other catastrophic events.  The COVID pandemic proved absolutely that organizations like the CDC and NIH were NOT prepared to address such an outbreak.  Both these organizations, as well as most other federal branches of government are grossly overstaffed.  If Trump were smart, he would put a hiring freeze in place for every federal agency with the exception of military branches.  No one need be terminated, but as folks retire, leave, die, etc, they are NOT replaced until there is a goal met.  I suggest a 30% reduction in budget and numbers of folks staffing our government.  Once both conditions are met, then hiring can be opened up for positions that are vacated.  Also, end all contractors working for the government within six months of Trump taking office.  I know for fact that the contractors do the work while the employees sit back doing very little in the way of work.  End that nonsense now!

Establish rules regarding censorship for tech companies, rules that LIMIT their ability to censor anything.  Exceptions would be for porno, graphic presentations of people being harmed, etc.  But the verbal expression of thought should be excluded.  PERIOD!!!

3. Encroaching globalism and its suffocation of personal self-determination and market independence,

I think I made myself clear above.  Until we make supporting globalism a capital crime, the erosion of our sovereignty will continue.  I say indict, convict, and dispatch every last globalist at sunrise the following day upon conviction.  WE need to get smart about those out to destroy this nation.  Freedom is one thing, but we have become a very dumb nation regarding treason.  Redefine treason and put real teeth to the consequences.  Guilty of treason, death is the ONLY outsome.  Again, in a country with a population marching to 400 million, we can afford to eliminate every last globalist, and not skip a beat.

4. Equity vs. equality,

Equity is slowly dying.  We absolutely must have a system based on merit, or we continue our march to become exactly like soviet Russia, where people are NOT productive.  We become silent, our vote doesn't matter because elections are fixed, etc.

5. Military spending, training and qualifications,

We have military in 140+ nations.  I say our allies step up, or we decide who are our true allies, and we get smart about our influence throughout the world.  I would not be opposed to reducing our presence in some of these countries.

6. Energy independence,

Pure energy independence with a vengeance.  What Biden and the Democommies have done is criminal, and absolutely insane.  I do not believe in the climate change nonsense.  And it makes no sense the USA make policy along this line while China and India are going full tilt to destroy the environment.  Makes no sense.

EVs will not make it.  PERIOD!!!  They are not competitive.  When the day arrives when the government does not subsidize the purchase of EVs, their sales end.  Most EVs are being leased, not bought.  When manufacturers get the cars back off lease, they ship them overseas and sell them like new cars.  Check your used car lots.  It is rare even now to see a used EV on used car lots.  After forcing that crap as Biden has done, the sales are still single digit.  Most are leased and shipped out of the USA when they come off lease.  What will half the population do when there are no used cars available, and that is all they can afford?  Walk to work?  Yeah, right!!!  The UGLY TRUTH is that EVs are choking a part of our markets, that being the used car market.  If EVs ever got to massive sales, we would NOT have the electric available to charge them daily.  The grid cannot support the use requirements now let alone tens of millions of vehicles being charged daily.

And you want to compromise our military, have them use EVs only.  Hours to recharge a vehicle versus minutes to refuel a combustion engine.  Get real, these Democommies are total idiots.


7. The preservation of the American legacy and inheritance, including in the government, education curriculum and the courts.

We need sanity returned to the classroom.  It should be a felony for any teacher, admin, or any support person at our schools to encourage children to consider transgender anything.  I consider what is going on worse than pedophilia.  And talk about rights, I think it is time for our Congress to add a new right for parents.  Parents should have absolute rights to guide their children, and no one else.  PERIOD!!!  Otherwise, again we are approaching children as they were treated during the soviet era in Russia, where the state has control, and that is where we are right now in the USA.  Talk about dark times ahead, sit back and allow that nonsense to establish further and we are indeed in deep trouble as a society.

Reading Bret Baier's book on Ulysses S. Grant (a great read), I did not realize the woke morons tore down a statue of Grant in the USA.  When you consider his history, these people need to pay restitution for the damage they caused.  This woke idiocy must be labeled anarchy behavior, and must have a serious level felony charge attached, that puts these people behind bars for ten years.

Peaceful demonstration is one thing, but the destruction of property is another.  Time to arrest and throw looters in prison too for five + years.  And they must pay restitution for their thievery.  And the time is long overdue to address the theft of people homes.  Anyone stealing property valued at $100,000 or greater should face a capital outcome.  We hung people for stealing a loaf of bread not that long ago.  The theft of a family home, which is happening should have serious consequences.

We must end the Diversified Visa Program, which is bringing in large numbers of muslims from hostile nations.  Iran year in, year out leads the numbers for a country with Greencard Lottery recipients.  This is crazy.  Again, we must have a well designed immigration program and sh*t can the existing programs.

Culturally, we need to create a national law that makes it a capital crime if a police officer is murdered.  Too many are dying because we have weak laws.  I want teeth in criminal laws.


Addendum

Also paramount, is the establishment of TERM LIMITS IN CONGRESS>  Nothing much changes until this happens.  Too many lifers holding seats, and doing next to nothing.

Also, end the counting of illegal invaders being included in determining congressional districts.

Establish an amendment to the Constitution that restricts those that are NOT citizens from voting.  Illegal aliens voting dilutes those that have a true right to the franchise.

End the right to citizenship because you were born in the USA.  In order to receive USA citizenship, you must have a parent that is a USA citizen.  PERIOD!!!

Change requirements for running for POTUS AND VPOTUS.  35 years of age is not old enough, and that and being born in the USA is idiotic.  More requirements should be established, like run a business or government entity with more than 10,000 employees.  (Pick a bigger number if you want).  There is not one 35 year old in the USA I would vote for.  NOT one.

And I could go on, but I have to run to a meeting.


Excellent @jafo2010 --- and thank you.  I need a little time to digest this, and will post my thoughts a little later.

If he couldn't get what he needed to get done with a super majority then he failed miserably at his own 'art of the deal, and caved to the DEMS.

Yes, by all means, deport every last illegal invading alien.

Also put laws in lace that if they enter the USA again illegally, are caught, they serve a minimum of three years in prison, no early out, and then are deported.  If they come back again, the term is doubled to 6 years, no early out.  3rd time, 10 years.  Perhaps eventually they will get the idea they are NOT welcome.

Broaden the treason definition to executives who fail to carry out the laws as established by Congress.  The penalty is immediate removal from office, at a minimum.

Great.  Then you should have no problem defining the full conservative position.  How would a "true conservative"  handle these issues (specifics would be helpful) ----

1. American sovereignty vs. illegal immigration

Stop handing out free shit to illegals from money taken from Americans.


2. The erasure of American individual freedoms by overbearing Federal, state and local governments

Cut spending.  Balance the budget.  Place strict limitations federal, state, and local governments by cutting off the very thing that empowers them.


3. Encroaching globalism and its suffocation of personal self-determination and market independence

Globalism doesn't suffocate personal self-determination.  Government does.


4. Equity vs. equality

Uphold equal protection.  Stop giving out free shit.


5. Military spending, training and qualifications

Set our defense budget at 6% of GDP.  The remainder at 12%.


6. Energy independence

Cheap energy is more important than energy independence.  Get government the hell out of the way.


7. The preservation of the American legacy and inheritance, including in the government, education curriculum and the courts.

Balance the budget.  Stop allowing government to live beyond its means.  America's legacy and inheritance isn't built upon government.

Yes, by all means, deport every last illegal invading alien.

But only after they've completed their prison sentences for entering the country illegally.


Also put laws in lace that if they enter the USA again illegally, are caught, they serve a minimum of three years in prison, no early out, and then are deported.

The current law is 2 years.


Broaden the treason definition to executives who fail to carry out the laws as established by Congress.  The penalty is immediate removal from office, at a minimum.

The penalty for treason is death by hanging.  Let's not sugar coat it.  Basically, we just need to enforce the laws already on the books.  Unfortunately, a spirit of lawlessness plagues our land.

Do you support President Trump's stated goal of beginning "the largest domestic deportation operation in the history of our country?"

YES or NO?

Do you support candidate Trump's stated goal of deporting all illegals, and then fast-tracking them right back in as 'legal' immigrants?

Newsflash, @libertybele the majority of Republicans in Congress still support illegal immigration,.  It's how Biden's gotten away with doing this:

I was addressing a concern expressed by @libertybele

But, you're right @Hoodat  ---- which is why Trump went on to secure the border without relying on Congress.

By deporting less people than Obama, and not building a wall.

He’s making the same promise regarding deportations as he did in 2016 that fell short then and will again if re-elected. Either he’s forgotten that he  made that same promise in 2016, or he’s hoping his base has forgotten he’s made that promise.

And, as we have seen how quickly he  change his positions for cash, let’s hope that any illegal immigration advocacy groups don’t donate to his campaign.

However, Trump was much better on the border than Biden. It’s the one issue, if not the only one, were he has a major advantage on over Biden. Biden’s incompetence has ushered in a migrant crisis the likes Ive never seen in my lifetime. I think they were hoping these border crossers would come in and they could quietly slip them into swing districts, but it’s falling apart on them

Now, the administration and their allies are trying to pin the border crisis on Trump and nobody’s buying it

The only thing we need to do is enforce the laws already on the books and cut off the financial incentives to cross. And this cities and states that insist on violating the law and declaring themselves “Sanctuary Cities/States,” no federal funds

If, by some miracle, Trump wins, it’ll be over this issue

In a nutshell you keep saying majority on immigration -- that is not what I am referring to.  What I am referring to is that he did indeed have a majority in both the House and Senate.  Why couldn't he achieve what was needed with his own party; why couldn't he get them to back him?  Where was his self-proclaimed "Art of the Deal"?

Funny - you have pointed out that DeSantis has a GOP majority and that is why he is accomplishing what he has; yet Trump had a GOP majority and you cry foul. He had a GOP majority in both Houses for 2 years. Trump failed. His policies failed as most of them are non-existent.

Trump's own website mentions limited deportations and allowing those to stay on merit.  Give me a break -- he's not going to have the mass deportations that he claims.  What Trump says and does are usually two different things.

Despite the bill of goods we were sold, Trump is every inch a politician, making promises he knows his base will gobble up but that he for the most part will never deliver on. You will never again see an "Operation Wetback" in America and everyone including Trump knows it.

I'm aware of the jackasses in Washington and Trump's battle with them.  However, the fact still remains that he waited until the last minute before the new DEM congress was to be sworn in to being talks surrounding $$ for a border wall. Cruz pleaded with him several times to get that ball rolling long before the new congress was to be sworn in.  Pelosi then became leader and an even bigger battle needed to be fought. His delaying and procrastination on achieving what he promised to do caused his failure.  One of the biggest issues is that he failed to calm the riots as promised (with bible in hand).  They called his bluff and we are still experiencing the aftermath.

He wasn't the 'great negotiator' that he claimed to be.

None of his policies took hold as Biden overturned them -- as a result the border is a complete and absolute disaster.

As far as the swamp goes; obviously he didn't drain it.

All in all yes, certainly the 4 years of Trump were better than what we have now.  However, he once again he went after a strong conservative, and he did so even before he announced his decision to run. His age and his focus on retribution are what have me concerned. Conservatives are in for the fight of their lives, yet he decides to smear them. No thank you. Perhaps even more concerning is his VP list.  Gabbard?  Vivek?  Two candidates that I will not get behind.  One is liberal and the other is a snake salesman. Selling and endorsing bibles??  No thanks.  I'm still not close to holding my nose and voting for him.

Even IF he somehow is seated in the WH, he will be faced with the same situations which are more dire than when he took office previously.  I foresee him becoming more liberal as he has absolutely no incentives now to head more right of center.



Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Trump's own website mentions limited deportations and allowing those to stay on merit.  Give me a break -- he's not going to have the mass deportations that he claims.  What Trump says and does are usually two different things.

Because most members of his "republican" majority were, and still are, vastly more committed to preserving their swamp than they are to ANYTHING else. That's the sum total of it in one sentence @libertybele

It wasn't Trump that failed it was the jackasses we sent to Washington with him that failed us (See Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan).

Excuses. Blame shifting.

The whole job is gathering together a coalition to move the country forward.
That's what a president does.
That's the job.

He failed miserably. Utterly.
For all his braggadocios bullcrap, he couldn't pull it off.

   Trump has worked his entire adult life with the Chamber of Commerce, as has most politicians.  Therein lies the problem.
No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

People might forget about the (infamous) Kelo vs Connecticut case where a city in that state was allowed to force many people out of their homes for private industry.  Trump sided with the city.
Eminent Domain is supposed to be for the public and not a private entity. Trump thought otherwise probably because he would like to do something like that himself to make money.
