This is the wrong animal but the incorrect attitude I had taken when it came to many of my political views. That is until President Trump’s view moved me in a different direction. Here are the moves (below) that I made.
(1) NOT SO FREE TRADE- I believed in the invisible hand but after learning about the devastation that occurred in American factories due to unfair trade deals. I changed my tune to support new trade deals that supported our workers 1st. I’ll just have to pay a bit $$ to support the needs of those that work in the factories over here.
(2) WINDOW IMMIGRATION- I was all for open borders as I wouldn’t worry much about legal or even illegal immigration. Yet after learning about what other materials are crossing or border (fentanyl, heroine etc) sex trafficking, MS13 and the displacement of our lower skilled workers I realize this position needed to be changed from a door to a wall.
(3) HAWK TO AN EAGLE- I would be the one cheering on the side lines when a President declared war. Now I wait and double check to see whether it is really the last option which can be taken and/or whether the troops from those countries in conflict can handle it themselves. War maybe necessary at times but it must be a last resort and if so devastating on our part.
