As 2018 comes to a close and we celebrate another Thanksgiving, it’s the perfect time to reflect on all the things we are grateful for.
For conservatives, topping the list is that Hillary Clinton is not president. Thank God.
1. Hillary Clinton is not your president.
Yes, there has been a lot of turmoil caused by the relentless Democratic obstructionism toward President Trump and the nasty leftist media attacks against Trump and his supporters.
But no matter how bad things get, you can always take solace in the fact that Hillary isn’t president. And she never will be — no matter how desperately she wants to run again.
2. Donald Trump is president.
President Donald Trump has revived the U.S. economy. In fact, it’s so booming that Barack Obama wants to take credit for it.
With record-low unemployment for blacks, Hispanics and Asians, and a 65-year low for women, Trump has delivered on his promise to bolster the economy. And we’re just getting started.
Oh — And the US has the most competitive economy in the world for the first time since Obama took office in 2009, according to the World Economic Forum’s index.

Another thing President Trump has done is to spotlight how crucial it is for the United States to curb illegal immigration.
Both Democrats and Republicans have paid lip service to “immigration reform” for decades, but past presidents have brushed the thorny issue under the rug because they were deathly afraid to be called racist or xenophobic.
President Trump is not afraid to weather the media storm in order to restore American exceptionalism, which includes better border security, including a border wall.
There’s nothing wrong with Americans wanting to have a say in who comes into their country. After all, that’s what every other nation in the world does.
3. The Swamp is being drained.
Many RINOs are leaving Congress this year. And that’s a great thing for the Republican Party, and especially for Trump supporters.
Among those leaving are Trump-hating “Republicans” Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, Charlie Dent, Mark Sanford, and Paul Ryan. Another Never-Trumper who won’t be returning to Congress is John McCain, who died in August 2018.
Trump won the presidency on a promise to “drain the swamp.” Part of that included expelling the fractious elements in the Republican Party who refuse to support their party leader.
It’s hard enough for Trump to get anything done with Democrats constantly undermining and obstructing him. But he also has to deal with nonstop attacks from the mainstream media and from GOP legislators whose job is to support their president’s agenda.
Today’s Republican Party is now Donald Trump’s party. And that’s fine by law-abiding patriots who love their country.
4. We live in the greatest country on Earth.
Extensive research indicates that most people complain a lot, and that a core cause of unhappiness is not appreciating what you have.
If you live in the United States, you’re already blessed. Think of the millions of people clamoring to come to the US. Meanwhile, you’re already here.
Despite CNN’s hollow whines about President Trump being a “fascist,” in America, you can call your political leaders vicious names and not fear being sent to prison or killed.
In America, you can be openly gay and not worry that religious fanatics will throw you off a rooftop. If you’re a woman, you can drive a car and no one forces you to wear a headscarf to prevent being gang-raped.
In America, you’re free to be you and aspire to have the life you dreamed about. You may not get everything you want, but it’s nice to know that you don’t need to in order to be happy. And very grateful.
