Compare Ronald Reagan’s Memorial Day Message to Donald Trump’s

Ronald Reagan was revered as one of the very best Republican Presidents of my life time.  It was January 20, 1981 that he took office.  Eight years later when he left office,  he was credited with the revitalization of our economy, rebuilt our military capability, restored our position of world leadership and revived the spirit of the American people. He had set in motion the forces that led to the end of the Cold War, with the West winning and millions of people gaining their freedom from tyranny. His strategy of confronting the Soviet Union on a moral, military and diplomatic plane ultimately led to the implosion of that regime.  Even those who disagree with his politics admit that he was a respected leader, both at home and abroad.  Nobody would dispute that Ronald Reagan recognized the danger that the Societ Union posed to the United States.  Reagan would never have invited Russians to the White House and then only allowed Russian press to memorialize the moment.

On this Memorial Day it seems fitting to look to the Republican President who is lauded by Republicans as a great leader, and remember how he chose to remember the great sacrifices of the military .
Donald Trump will probably be remembered as the very worst President of the United States.  The list of his many failures is long, colorful, and astonishing.  On this Memorial Day, let us pause to compare the message of Reagan and Trump.  It seems only fitting that we compare Reagans moving tribute to that of Donald Trump.
Trump remembered the members of the military who made the ultimate sacrifice by sending out this Tweet.  In 280 characters Trump recognized and paid tribute to the inumerable members of the military who gave the lives to earn our freedom.

Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice

For Donald Trump, Memorial Day, is like every other day.  His focus is himself.  He has never dedicated any moment of his life to making the world a better place for anyone except himself.  On this Memorial Day,let us remember the members of the military, for their sacrifice, and for the freedoms that we enjoy today because of their devotion and sacrifice.  Let us all pause today to think about how we can make the world a better place

  1.  Little things in life matter.
  2. You can’t change the world by yourself.  Find someone to help you paddle.
  3. If you want to change the world measure people by the size of their heart, not the color of their skin, not their religious orientation, or sexual preferences.
  4. Sometimes no matter how well you perform, you will always have some disappointment.
  5. Everyone makes the circus list.  Those who had more challenges became stronger and more resilient.
  6. If you want to changes the world, you may have to take risks.
  7. There are a lot of sharks in the world, don’t back down from the sharks.
  8. At the darkest moment, you must be at your best.
  9. One voice can bring hope and hope can change the world.
  10. If you want to change the world, don’t ever give up.

Donald Trump will never change the world for anyone buy himself.  We must be the change in the world that we seek.

Let Donald Trump change America.  Let him be an example to every American of the risk of not voting.  Let him be an example of the reason we must demand more from our elected officials.  Let him be an example of the necessity of demanding in our President honesty, integrity and character.  We must be common people doing uncommon things.  We must never forget the damage that one person can inflict on our country if we fail to speak out.

Edmund Burke said:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.
Never forget the pain of the families of the military who have endured life without their loved ones.  These are some of the soldiers who made it home, but will never be the same.

    I don’t think Trump knows or even cares that he sounds like an ignorant, pompous ass. What a disgusting man.

  2. We have lost so many lifes in unnecessary wars. Let us hope for no wars in the future. It is disgraceful to have this illegitimate nasty liar “Cadet Bone Spur” faking the USA Presidency and inviting Russia to the oval office to celebrate his crimes. We are under direct threat from the Soviet Union/kgb because of the Republican party and now congress. We the people are not proud of our elected servants that have committed Treason and continue to allow this outrageous criminal to occupy the office of usa president. Protest, Arrest and Removal is the only remedy.

  3. Actually the only worthwhile Republican president of the US in the 20th – 21st century was Dwight Eisenhower. The GOP has completely erased him from their memory.

  4. The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC is worthy of Evening National News daily. Each night is very informative and gives the United States of America continued documented evidence of the corruption we face today. On Friday is special assignment by Mr Engle. Last Friday was very important. The topic “Black Cube” a company hired by many criminals to harass innocent people. Guess Who hired them? Donald John Trump, Harvey Weinstien, and more. We the American people are under direct attack and war with the underworld. Democrats and their families have been attacked. I’m quite sure many of us know of or was directly harassed, hacked and attacked in last few years. This needs more exposure on all levels especially fox news viewers. It must be forced.
