Turns out Donald Trump is looking to follow through with his promise to drain the swamp and he’s going to start right where he should, he’s going to get rid of excess government fat. In other words he is going to get rid of the people employed by government who are doing nothing more than occupying space and wasting oxygen. There are countless government agencies that literally mean nothing to the overall well being of the American people nor are they called for in the Constitution.
This gets me to my main underlying point in many of the articles I write, and that is getting back to a federal government as intended by the Constitution. A smaller government whose main focus should be the overall protection of the American people from enemies foreign and domestic, and if you ask me after 8 years of Obama there are plenty of enemies out there looking to do Americans harm. Obama has weakened our military to levels we haven’t seen since before WWII, luckily we have Trump coming into office and not only should he drain the swamp it also appears he intends to bring us back to the country we once were; a country that other nations respected and our enemies feared.
According to the Washington Examiner,
Making good on a promise to slash government, President-elect Trump has asked his incoming team to pursue spending and staffing cuts.
Insiders said that the spending reductions in some departments could go as high as 10 percent and staff cuts to 20 percent, numbers that would rock Washington if he follows through.
The spending reductions are expected to be used to help pay for Trump’s plan to boost the Pentagon’s budget, tax cuts and some pet projects, potentially including the anti-immigration wall on the nation’s southern border.
The teams also are looking at staffing cuts over four years through attrition, a hiring freeze and reorganization.
I know what you’re thinking… Oh no people are going to lose their jobs. What so ever will those people do when they are out of work. Well you know what? You have no reason to feel for these people if you think about the hardships they have put other Americans through when they were doing their jobs. These individuals that were nothing more than wasted space employed in agencies that overtaxed, overburdened, and over regulated small businesses into non-existence. They didn’t feel for the lives they were ruining or the families they destroyed as many could no longer afford to put food on the table.
This… people… is the change we need! This here is draining the swamp and Trump fulfilling his promise to Make America Great Again. I have said this all along and I stick to it that we must stand by and hold his feet to the fire if he doesn’t follow through with promises like this but as of yet we really have no reason not to believe he is a man of his word and he intends to bring America back to what it once was before progressives like Obama. Before progressives like Obama forced their socialist ideologies on us in their sad attempt to bring America down to the level of other third world countries they idolize so much.
