Dump Trump Hire Haley. 

Nikki Haley is a breath of fresh air and this country needs some fresh air in our politics.

She knows there are problems with both sides of the aisle

She knows the problems we are facing and how we need to get to work to solve them.  Lawmakers need to stop denigrating each other and do what the taxpayers who pay their salary want them to do.

She is an accountant and she understands how bad of a problem our deficit is.

For the record I am not a part of Nikki’s campaign and I am in no way shape or form being reimbursed for what I am writing.  This is how I feel and my opinion.

Below is an excerpt from her speech at the RNC convention in 2020.  

In much of the Democratic Party, it’s now fashionable to say that America is racist. That is a lie. America is not a racist country.

This is personal for me. I am the proud daughter of Indian immigrants. They came to America and settled in a small southern town. My father wore a turban. My mother wore a sari. I was a brown girl in a black and white world. We faced discrimination and hardship. But my parents never gave in to grievance and hate. My mom built a successful business. My dad taught 30 years at a historically black college. And the people of South Carolina chose me as their first minority and first female governor.

America is a story that’s a work in progress. Now is the time to build on that progress, and make America even freer, fairer, and better for everyone. That’s why it’s tragic to see so much of the Democratic Party turn a blind eye toward riots and rage.

The American people know we can do better. And of course we know that every single black life is valuable.

The black cops who’ve been shot in the line of duty — they matter. The black small business owners who’ve watched their life’s work go up in flames — they matter. The black kids who’ve been gunned down on the playground — their lives matter too. And their lives are being ruined and stolen by the violence on our streets.

It doesn’t have to be like this. It wasn’t like this in South Carolina five years ago. Our state came face-to-face with evil. A white supremacist walked into Mother Emanuel Church during Bible Study. Twelve African Americans pulled up a chair and prayed with him for an hour. Then he began to shoot.

After that horrific tragedy, we didn’t turn against each other. We came together — black and white, Democrat and Republican. Together, we made the hard choices needed to heal — and removed a divisive symbol, peacefully and respectfully.

What happened then should give us hope now. America isn’t perfect. But the principles we hold dear are perfect. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that even on our worst day, we are blessed to live in America.

It’s time to keep that blessing alive for the next generation.

Excerpt from Nikki on Abortion.

“We’re not just talking about policy here. We’re talking about people.

That’s often lost in this debate, on the left and the right. But it’s front of mind for me.

I acknowledge the humanity of both the unborn baby and the pregnant mom.

I know how hard pregnancy can be.

Some days, you’re so sick you can’t get out of bed. You worry if you’re really up for raising a baby. And you know you’re going to need a lot of help.

That’s what I felt during my pregnancies. Many women have it much harder. I desperately wanted a child. I had a loving family eager to help out. But some moms never wanted to be pregnant at all. Some are single with no one to help – with no idea how to raise a baby while keeping a job.

I had a friend who was raped. I know the anguish she went through worrying that she would have an unwanted pregnancy. It was an anguish I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

We can’t ignore the fears those women face.

I will never downplay these difficulties as I fight for life. And I won’t demonize those who disagree with me.

We can’t give into outrage culture and accuse our opponents of being evil. That’s self- defeating.

If we want to protect more moms and save more babies, we need more Americans to join with us. We must persuade people and find consensus, not push them further away.

I know we can do it.
I’ve done it before.”

Excerpt from Nikki Haley on Education Sept 2023

“This is not a Republican or Democrat issue,” Haley said. “Every parent, regardless of their education, regardless of where they’re from, knows what’s best for their child.”

A mother of two, Haley added: “No parent should ever wonder what’s being said or taught to their child in the classroom. We need full transparency in the classroom always.”

She accused “the school bureaucrats” and teachers’ unions of “trying to take custody of our children.”

Haley said parents should be able to decide which schools their children should attend.

“When you know all kids don’t fit in the same mold, making sure that there are options, that matters,” she said.

While some Republican candidates have promised to eliminate the Education Department entirely, Haley noted that doing so would require an act by Congress, which would face long odds. Instead, she said she would seek to “get rid of all the guts” of the department by sending much of its funding to states in the form of block grants.

“Let’s take away the power of the federal government, reduce that size of the Department of Education and empower the parents on the ground, empower the people in those states,” she said. “That way, you’re getting it closer to the kids. More money is actually going to teaching, and then you can control what’s being said and taught to your child in the classroom.”

Haley said the Education Department should have a narrow mission of teaching children “the basics so that they can be successful contributors to society.”

“Anything outside of that? They’re not meant to parent. They’re not meant to do anything that doesn’t involve those basic core concepts of education,” she said.

Haley criticized the practice of allowing transgender girls to compete in female sports, as well as teaching about transgender people. She has previously called the debate over transgender athletes “the women’s issue of our time.”

“The idea that you’ve got these girls who’ve worked so long to get to the point in their high school career, and then have a biological boy step up, who’s physiologically going to be different, have them step up and take over all that hard work that they’ve done, and then you’re going to go and say, ‘Oh, and they get to change in your locker room?” Haley said.

She also said she recently spoke to a New Hampshire high school senior who claimed that “they talk about transgenderism” in “every class” she attends. The teen, according to Haley, said she feels like she is “walking on eggshells” because she’s scared she might say something that will upset people.

“That is the last thing I want her worrying about in school,” Haley said.


Excerpt from Town Hall Murphy’s Taproom in Bedford, New Hampshire May 2023

She said, “I don’t need to tell you how bad things are. You go to the grocery store and you feel it. You enter your children’s school, you know it. Times are tough.” She talked about the rising debt in this country, adding, “Joe Biden, under his watch, has increased spending by $5 trillion. The average household has lost $7,400 in income.”

However, Haley did not only blame the incumbent President for the increase in spending, saying, “It’s easy to blame Joe, right? We’ve got this whole situation where we are going to raise the debt ceiling. And the fact that they’re even having conversations about raising the debt ceiling is an indictment on Congress. It’s an indictment on every President that we had prior to get us into this situation. ”She also took shots at congressional Republicans, citing their role in the passing of the expansion of welfare and the 7000 earmarks that have passed through both houses of Congress with support from both parties.

I encourage you to do your own research on her and learn more.  She is an intelligent, thoughtful person who can articulate issues in an efficient and accurate manner.  She deserves some of your time to get to know her.
