A Most Welcome Regime Change!

My spirits received a most wonderful and welcome lift
on Friday, January 20. That was the day when Barack
Obama ceased being President of the United States and
Donald Trump was sworn in as the new president.
Inauguration Day: a day of liberation, jubilation, and

For many of us on the right, our new POTUS was not
our first choice, nor our second, third, fourth, ... in the
case of your favorite Peasant he was not my choice at all.
I honestly thought that he was running simply as a lark,
for he had run for the top office in the land twice before,
for a total of all of a few weeks. A nice way to generate
publicity for oneself, if one is a billionaire. But despite
this, along with many mostly unnecessary verbal scrapes
with primary opponents, debate moderators, and a few
reporters, some grievous flip-flopping on some issues,
and a seeming lack of knowledge of some of these issues
along with suspect lacking of study of same, and the fact
that few people in the Democrat or Republican Parties
gave Trump any chance to win in November when he
won the latter's nomination (that in itself a shocking
upset, as well as a harbinger of what was to come!),
Donald John Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Rodham
Clinton in the general election to be elected our 45th
president. A man with an outsize ego but also with a
great love for our country, Trump has sworn to undo
the damage his predecessor did with his unconstitutional
executive orders, his sidling up to our enemies while
shafting our friends, his phony-baloney stimulus packages
which benefited only his Wall Street cronies, his taxing
and spending, not to mention his debt raising to frightening
new levels which will be passed on to our children and
grandchildren, his attempt to put an entire industry out
of business (coal) and to greatly hamstring another (oil),
and sneaking through a then-Democrat and compliant
Congress his not-at-all Affordable Health Care Act,
after lying about its features and benefits (premiums will
be lower than those for most people's then-present coverage
packages; "If you like your health plan, you can keep it;
if you like your doctor, ... "), I could go on until the next
presidential election! Your grateful Peasant will gladly take
Trump's bombast and braggadocio over Obama's abject
and cavalier lying and open contempt for our country and
we her people anytime!

I admit to have been "Never Trump!" during the primaries
and caucuses. But when Trump won the GOP laurels I
saw the folly of continuing to maintain that stand, and came
to support him, if only to keep Hillary Clinton out of the
White House; to be "Never Hillary!" was the greater imperative,
for the sake of our country, our liberty, our prosperity, and our
constitutional rule of law. I was at a Republican victory party
held at the Milwaukee Athletic Club with friends watching the
election results proclaiming Trump to have won our state
(the first time Wisconsin had been carried by a Republican
presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan), then having won
the election. With the joyous noises and jumping about you
would have thought that the Milwaukee Brewers had at last
won the World Series! Amid the pizza, the drinks, the joyful
tears and ringing cheers, we celebrated the return of our country
from the hands of a stone-cold statist and elitist and his minions
to We the People and a candidate who loves and cares for our
country, her people, and our way of life.

And now, at this critical but joyful time, your humble and thankful
Peasant wants to wish our new president every success in his and
his administration's efforts to restore and heal our nation and our-
selves, to make us a nation of laws again, and to restore our friends'
faith and confidence in the United States while placing our enemies
on notice that there is a new leader here, and he won't brook any
nonsense from them like the last one had. God bless and be with you,
President Trump, your administration, and your family.
Your success is our success.
