When you watch the Mainstream Media news…um… opinion, you wouldn’t know that you are in the middle of an economic boom or that the President has our back by trying to put us ahead of other countries. In fact, you’re being told that it’s all a mirage or that it’s just Barack Obama’s economic policies finally kicking in. You are also being told how shameful it is to put American interests ahead of the world.
I mean, who are you going to believe, the Leftist dominated Media, the shills for Democrat politics or your own lying eyes? It’s all a little disorienting isn’t it? With that in mind, I’ve decided to provide a public service and spell out why voting for Democrats in November would be a terrible idea. Here are the first five I came up with (in about two minutes). Please feel free to add your own reasons in the comments section.
1. The Democrats are fresh out of ideas that don’t involve Socialism
They would love to turn America into a country like Norway. Hey, nothing wrong with Norway except that it has a completely different history and tradition than The U.S. You see, our country was built on these words from the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness….”
That doesn’t seem compatible with Socialism does it?
2. Democrats see people as symbols of Oppression not as individuals
Americans are free individuals first and foremost. They usually evaluate each other by their respective abilities or heart. Democrats however, are stuck in identity politics and a pecking order of who is the greater victim.
An example of this was seen in the Kavanaugh confirmation process. As it played out, Justice Kavanaugh was accused of having sexually assaulting Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford in 1982 when they were both teenagers. This was completely uncorroborated by the witnesses named by Ford. Out of this, some very disturbing arguments came from the Left. One was that women should always be believed. And though Kavanaugh was exonerated, Democrats still talk about Kavanaugh as a privileged (white) frat boy who is guilty as charged. In fact he was presumed guilty.
Why? In the “hierarchy of victimhood”, all females rank higher than privileged white males, regardless of the facts. Because to Democrats, you aren’t an individual, you are symbolically either a victim or an oppressor. If you vote for Democrats, this victim/oppressor scale is part of the deal. Yuck.
3. The Democrats are bullies and resort to violence and incivility to silence their opponents
Several prominent Democrats have called for “getting in the face” of Republicans. It’s apparently open season on Republicans in restaurants and anywhere they are. Several orchestrated demonstrations occurred in the Senate confirmation hearings, which continually interrupted the process.
But now it’s getting even more serious as Antifa continues to act like “brown shirts” in Portland. Antifa also vandalized the Republican Party headquarters in New York City. In Minnesota, two Republican candidates were assaulted. Last year, a Republican Congressman was shot.
Meanwhile, Eric Holder, former Attorney General under Obama, and a potential Presidential candidate in 2020, said recently: ““Michelle [Obama] always says ‘When they go low, we go high…No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”
Hilary Clinton recently said in a CNN interview: "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
So far, no Democrat leader has denounced either the incivility or violence. Hmmm.
4. America has prospered economically under President Trump and the Republicans
This week, the United States reached the top spot in the world economy rankings for the first time since 2008 according to the index just published by the World Economic Forum. The Democrats have plenty of excuses for the milder than normal recovery since 2008, that was the weakest recovery from a recession since World War II. They even called it the “new normal,’’ that was the result of fundamental changes in the American economy.
Not surprisingly, Democrats credit Obama for the last 2 years of economic success. Let’s concede that he did guide the economic growth out of the “Great Recession.” But it doesn’t account for the growth spurt under Trump and the Republicans. Here are a few highlights:
· The stock Dow Jones Average is up 10,000 points since Trump’s election.
· There is record low unemployment for all, including African Americans and Latinos.
· Despite a tax cut, there are the Treasury Department is recording record receipts of taxes.
· Manufacturing jobs have returned, reversing their negative trend.
· Almost double the GDP growth that was “normal” in the Obama Administration.
Granted, the Republicans have helped add to the enormous debt left by the Obama Administration. That will have to change that sooner rather than later. But, with Democrat promises of free health care and college, well, you see the problem. The Republicans deserve one last chance to get this right.
5. The Democrats plan for Immigration Reform is open borders
Well, you tell me. What do they stand for? Exactly.
For these and many other reasons, the Dems deserve to lose in November. if you want a taste of what it would be like if the Democrats regain power in Washington, look no further than their behavior during the Kavanaugh confirmation process. We witnessed rage in the streets, women protesters dressed as characters from a dystopian novel, screaming from the balcony, and empty grandstanding by potential 2020 Presidential candidates. Worse still, was their wanton destruction of two individuals for political gain.
As far as I can tell, their only plan is to impeach Trump, Kavanaugh, raise taxes and provide a bunch of free stuff. It’s a damn shame to see a party come to this. I used to be a Democrat, but their breathtaking leftward move left me and others behind. Until they return to being grownups again, the Dems shouldn’t see power in either Congressional body or the Presidency. Keep them out of power in November for their sake and ours.
Jon Saltzman is the publisher of Political Storm and the last Democrat he voted for was the late Senator From Illinois, Paul Simon. He believes that the Democrats could use some of Simon’s integrity.
