All eyes are set on the upcoming G-20 summit in Osaka.
Americans should be proud. If it were not for the American economy humming along on all six (or eight) cylinders, tensions would be higher, and everyone knows it. The world is unsettled and it is precisely because world leaders know their policies aren’t working as they thought or predicted, and it is creating dissent among citizens in many European and Asian countries.
The reason is simple. Freedom and free markets win. Socialist, central-planning policies don’t. And the one person who seems to know this better than anyone is President Trump, much to the chagrin of many world leaders who scoff at the man because they believe he is a bumbling idiot who belongs nowhere near politics.
Trump, like him or hate him, has done what even the previous U.S. President said could not be done, which was to exceed 3% GDP while at the same time lower unemployment so that more people have more control over what they earn and are less dependent on tax-payer services.
For Trump it was game, set and match when then lowered tax rates so that more workers can keep their money and buy things that keep the economy buzzing along, and business owners have capital (and confidence) to expand.
An economic trifecta!
In other words, freedom (in the form of less regulation) and free markets do well when not strangled by big-government central planning, which is where most other governments are heading.
Europe is less free and more taxed, thanks to bleeding-heart EU liberal-progressives who have been increasingly forcing Europeans to subsidize migrants from war-torn countries, and then implement laws that restrict its country’s people the right to complain about such policies – while losing jobs in the meantime.
It now takes a British citizen 62 days on average to schedule an appointment to see their primary physician.
And this by the way, is where California is also headed.
China is going broke because it’s running out of options to sustain its 1.4 billion people who eat everyday and also need jobs to feed families, erstwhile their government is keeping them stupid and uninformed about the economic state of their country, in some cases now encouraging younger graduate citizens to take up ploughs in the field, a clear sign of panic for CCP, who won’t admit openly that Oresident Trump actually does have leverage (a booming and free economy) to wage an ongoing tariff war against them.
All while the rest of the world watches in amazement as the orange-haired goofy guy continues to make America ‘great again’ while making the elite globalist A-Team look foolish. Meanwhile, these unelected authoritarians remain stumped trying to figure out why their central-planning, socialist regimes aren’t producing the right results, while Trumps’ America is cleaning their clocks.
They say revenge is good living. Trump proves it in spades.
What America shows is that when people are truly free and restraints are lifted from them, things work better for everyone.
In America, where true freedom includes having the freedom to criticize our president who, thankfully doesn’t care, is also a free market economy where winners and losers are determined by a merit-based system; where people do fail and succeed based on the quality of what they produce, which shows a remarkable elastic outcome that lifts people up instead of keeping them down.
What we (or more precisely, Trump’s policies) have shown is that big government DOESN’T work.
The reason many world leaders remain baffled by their stagnant economies is because they falsely assume regulation is always necessary, the more rules you have in place, the better social and economic conditions will result.
Obama believed this, current Democratic party members believe this, and so do the current crop of socialist world leaders also believe.
America proves people make the civilization. Governments do not.
Things are so good in America right now (for those who are NOT dependent on stupid and ineffective social programs) that the naysayers‘ only critique upon the president these days is the weak-kneed climate crisis hoax (because Trumps’ EPA is less regulatory, hence the climate is in crisis because we aren’t regulating it). Many world leaders are stuck with this notion, this hubris idea that if you just regulate you will solve problems, even in addressing the climate.
We have proven the liberty snd freedom model works best.
And when Trump goes to Osaka, he can prove, more than anything else, that he was right.
If this were The Apprentice, he would no doubt be the season’s big winner.
