Is it possible that there really is a silent majority of Americans ready to start a revolution with our votes this fall? From the police officer on the street who’s afraid to do his job to the baker who no longer has the right to sell his goods to whomever he chooses?

In today’s world, you can’t even say “all lives matter” without being called a racist. Seven years ago this president said he was going to fundamentally change America and he has: Political correctness rules the day.

Two of the most politically incorrect presidential candidates are leading the pack, and while they may not win the nomination, they have shaken this election cycle to its very core.

I don’t think it’s an accident that Donald Trump is leading in polls. I don’t think it’s an accident that his campaign events are attended by thousands of people rather than hundreds of people who attend the other candidates’ events.

I don’t think it’s an accident that when Mr. Trump says “make America great again,” it resonates with Republicans, Democrats, blacks, whites, Hispanics and other people who are a part of the 94 million who have just stopped looking for work.

I do believe our country is a Christian nation founded on Christian principles with freedom for all to worship the way they choose, but not a country where Sharia Law is welcome, where women can’t get an education or must be slaves to their husbands.

I think Mr. Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz have made it easier for us to recognize political correctness. The latest slap in America’s face was seeing our sailors on their knees with their hands behind their heads as like common criminals.

It was hard to watch Iranians pointing weapons at them. But what really pushed me over the top was to hear our secretary of state thank the Iranians for the treatment they showed our men and one woman in military uniforms. That was the height of political correctness and it made me sick. Yeah, I’m angry.

That brief moment brought back memories of the Iranian hostages of years ago. What we saw is exactly how our country has been treated by the two bit dictators of the world since this administration has been in charge.

I want America to be No. 1 in the world once again. A world where our friends trust us and enemies fear us. If the election were held today, I’d be voting to “make America great again.”
