A Call to Arms

A Call to Arms to Our Fellow Americans

Today, the 21st of June, 2016, is a day that can go down in history as the day that America woke up and reversed a downward trend that has plagued our nation for the past 8 years.

Today, all liberal media outlets touted Hillary Clinton’s $42-million-dollar war chest and ridiculed Donald Trump’s meager $1.3 million. THEY, the liberal media-political complex, just taught us a lesson on crony capitalism; on what it means to be a shameless servant to big banks and special interests; on what it is like to heartlessly rip off ordinary hardworking American families in order to enrich their corporate masters.

THEY are laughing and taunting at all of America: “HAHAH! We’ve got all the money and we control the media. We can buy an election. We can put whichever puppet we want in the White House and there isn’t a thing you can do about it.”

THEY are doing their premature victory laps on a field soaked with the sweat, tears and blood of millions of hardworking American families that are left hurt, broken and bleeding after 8 years of Democrat rule.

THEY have declared war on us common folks. And we now have no choice but to fight back!

George Stephanopoulos, one of Bill Clinton’s top campaign managers, said in a 1998 speech at USC: “In American politics, money gives you access, which gives you power.” He was being honest, and unfortunately, that statement has been too true for too long. That is the rule the Clintons play by: cater to big money, do their masters’ biddings and profit from those dirty backroom deals.

We don’t need George Stephanopoulos or Bernie Sanders to tell us about Hillary’s secret speeches to and outrageous appearance fees from big Wall Street banks. Hillary Clinton herself said on national television that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2000. Yet, in Senate financial forms filed in 2004, she reported a net worth as high as $50 million. Political pay for play at its best.

We don’t need the Federal Reserve Bank or the Congressional Budget Office or the Pew Research Center to tell us that American working families and the middle class are hurting. We feel it ourselves, every single day. According to the St. Louis Fed, from 2008 to 2014, adjusted for inflation, the median household income for American families actually fell by $1,700.

Yet, the national debt skyrocketed from $10 trillion to more than $19 trillion from 2008 to 2016. That’s 9 trillion dollars, $9,000,000,000,000. If 9 trillion dollars were to be distributed to 300 million Americans, each American should have received $30,000. None of us has seen that money. We have to ask: where did all that money go? Definitely not to ordinary American families.

The “change” that the Democrats promised when they took the White House in 2008 had been for the worse, not better, for most Americans.

We don’t need WikiLeaks to tell us about the emails Hillary Clinton kept on her private server. She tried to delete those emails to prevent the FBI from reviewing them. Yet, her server has been hacked long ago and the emails are now freely downloadable by foreign intelligence agencies and terrorist groups all around the world. Her arrogance and ignorance have put our national security at risk.

We don’t need WikiLeaks, Anonymous or other hacktivist groups to remind us that Hillary Clinton was largely responsible for the mess in Libya, Syria, Egypt and Iraq today. She and her senseless policies are largely responsible for how ISIS grew to its current size. Her inactions are the reasons why our ambassador and brave servicemen died in Benghazi. We saw that with our own eyes.

Those and many other reasons are why the Chinese Americans for Trump movement (CAFT) hereby call upon all our fellow Americans to stand up against Hillary Clinton and the things she stands for — a corrupt political culture, corporate greed, utter incompetence and stifling of civic discussions. Letting her win in November would be tantamount to allowing our nation to decline further.

We, the American people, must reverse that downward trend. We, the American people, can no longer remain silent.

In stark contrast to the greed and ineptitude displayed by Hillary Clinton, Mr. Donald Trump has won the GOP primary without taking corporate money, while being outspent by many of his opponents. He stayed true to his principles. We admire him for that.

Most of us know that “The Star-Spangled Banner,” our National Anthem, was written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812. During that war, a young United States of America again faced the mighty British Empire. The US Army numbered about 8,000 whereas the British Army had 250,000 soldiers. 8 versus 250. Yet, our forefathers fought and won that struggle of Biblical proportions.

Americans are never afraid of overwhelming odds.

Today, we face similar odds: 1.3 versus 42, and we must win this struggle to ensure our land, the great nation of the United States of America, remains free. Not only for us, but for our children and grandchildren.

So, we are making a call to arms, to our fellow Americans:

Let us put our money where our mouths are. Let us forego that Starbucks coffee or that steak dinner and contribute $5, $10, $20 to the Trump campaign. Let us show him that he is not alone in this fight against the tides of corporate greed and political corruption.

Let us be brave. Let us make our views clear publicly. Let us talk about Mr. Trump. Let us go out and talk to our friends and family and neighbors about the direction this country was heading, about our future and our children’s future, about the important choice we will be making in November.

Let us fight for Mr. Trump’s vision for America: to bring back a time when Americans were able to dream big and do great things; when Americans dared to go to the moon and reach for the stars; when Americans were hopeful about their future, not hopeless like many families are today.

Let us fight for America, on the beaches of Los Angeles and Miami.

Let us fight for America, on the streets of New York City and Cleveland, Ohio.

Let us fight for America, on the golden plains of Idaho and the verdant prairies of Texas.

Let us fight for America, from the snow-capped Rocky Mountains to the scorching deserts in the Southwest.

Let us fight, not just for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren.
