Former Governor James Gilmore enters GOP Presidential Race
Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore: Why I’m running for President of the United States.
With so many candidates already in the race, some may ask, “Why am I running?” That’s a fair question that deserves a straight answer.
I am a candidate for president because our current Washington leadership is guiding America on a path to decline, and I can reverse that decline.
That current leadership is damaging our economic and national security to such a degree, that for this first time in American history, most Americans believe their children will not be better off than they are.
I have a vision for a different America, one that will return America to the policies of a dynamic, entrepreneurial free-market economy and a policy of peace-through-strength for our national security.
Eric Bolling of Fox TV’s Cashing In Interviews Donald Trump, August 1
Trump wants to rebuild our military strength to protect the U.S. because our nation is in danger. He wants to care for our veterans properly including hospitals, staff and revamping the bureaucracy.
He wants to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Currently we’re losing jobs to Mexico and other nations. Automobile manufacturing is an example. Mexico is exporting drugs into our country and taking money out. There’s something wrong with this.
Concerning Education, Trump doesn’t like Common Core mandated and directed by the Feds. Whereas Jeb Bush is pressing for Common Core, Trump believes this should be local.
Politics is sometimes called “the art of the possible.” And also sometimes it is called “the art of the impossible.”
Nobody who honestly wants to practice this art will ever look down on it, no matter how rough and dirty the playing field might get.
Obama Still Has a Future Ahead of Himself. He Recently Noted That “While Occupying the U.S. Presidency Has Its Perks, So Does Giving It Up.
“It means I can go take a walk. I can spend time with my family. I can find other ways to serve. I can visit Africa more often.” The audience applauded in approval. Obama said was if he ran for President again he would win. Oh really!
A small thaw on the Alaskan border
Despite icy U.S-Russia ties, travel rules are eased for some Natives on either side of the Bering Strait.
Last week, officials announced updates to an agreement that allows such indigenous residents of Alaska and Russia’s Chukchi Peninsula to travel between the two countries without a visa for stays of up to 90 days.
This will mean that some Alaska Natives will be able to visit friends and family in Russia without having to pay for a visa—a cost of at least $160—or wait for the application to be processed.
