Today, it happens. Donald J. Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States. President Obama’s time in the office is over.
Many people, probably about a half to two thirds of the nation, are very happy about this. Yes, we remain divided. Why are we so divided? And where is the division?
Through observation, many people believe President Obama increased the division. That division primarily is between black and white, the educated and the non-educated, but mainly as it has been throughout history, it is the division between the haves and the have not’s.
For the past eight years, the federal government under Obama’s direction, has been giving away benefits at an alarming rate. The people receiving these benefits have come to expect to always get subsidies. It is a part of the entitlement mentality. They want everything others who work for a living possess. There is, however, a disconnect between the logic of having what you want and working for it.
Today, the situation exists in which, those who don’t work still expect all of the benefits provided by those who do toil for a paycheck. Those who work, however, are very tired of having their money taken from them for the freeloaders.
Notice the intent of the previous paragraph. We are focusing on freeloaders, not those who genuinely need help. We are a compassionate people, but we are also citizens who despise other able-bodied people taking advantage of us.
It is time to put an end to those practices; it is time to stop those who are gaming the system.
In a nutshell, that is what President Trump will do. Much to the chagrin of the liberal freeloaders. It truly is the end of an era.
No more Obama-phones.
