In some ways I want Bernie to win. Not because I think he would be a good president, but because I think people need to see the ugly face of Socialism and they need to “feel the burn,” so that we never, ever try to touch that hot stove again, if you get my drift.
Most people I know do not understand that, though they might hate the Trumpster, they benefit tremendously from his policies. We all have and will continue to do so as long as President Trump is in office.
When business is booming, people are working. When people are working, tax dollars are generated. When tax dollars are generated government services increase, medical services offered to the poor increase, donations to institutions increase, more people can afford to send their kids to college, more people can afford to buy their first home, people are happier with their lives, drug and alcohol usage drops, people eat better and in general the quality of life for everyone improves.
Welcome to the last 36 months under Donald Trump.
Remember when the Great recession dragged on? It was supposed to turn around by 2012, but it lingered, like a bad toothache. People lost confidence in employment, opioid usage increased in rural areas which soon spread to urban areas. Crime went up, criminal activity increased, business lost confidence in investment (in people via jobs), and in general, the U.S., in just 6 short years became what German is right now, a country where its policies, taxes and regulations all but mortally wounded what was once the ideal economy of Europe, only it was a “progressive America” under President Obama, a plan that, in retrospect, was a complete disaster.
Migration is killing Europe, the same kind of migration Bernie wants to happen to America. “Clean Energy” policies are driving energy costs so high that many Europeans really can’t even afford their medicine, which supposedly is subsidized by the government. This is the socialist model Bernie wants to bring to the U.S.
What every person should be gravely concerned with is the fact that the mainstream media wants what Bernie wants because progressive Leftist elites want everyone to suffer because, well, we deserve it! America should not be successful. America should be equal to the rest if the world, and that is the worldview of Bernie Sanders, a man who has made a living doing very little, except bringing in a paycheck that has made him very wealthy – off the backs of the U.S Taxpayer.
Bernie has never owned or operated a business, never had a job outside of government, and loves socialism, the kind of socialism we have seen choke countries to death. For some reason Bernie feels (as do many of his supporters), that real income equality is that everyone is equally serving the government because Bernie will make sure government controls every aspect of our lives. Bernie believes that is the central rule of government: to govern completely and control the production of goods and services in order to achieve “fairness;” exactly what our founding fathers did not want.
The government that governs the least governs the best. But in Bernies’ world, this kind of idea is hate speech. Of course the government must control society, says the progressive old man who wants to be our President. “We simply can’t let big business do it,” says the fiery Vermontian, free enterprise is corrupt and the rich must suffer like the rest of us.” But not Bernie, not AOC, not the Hollywood elite who preach to us about sacrifice while they drink champagne and wear funny clothes that cost more than an average person makes in a year.
Bernie is toxic for America.
Trump has already proven Bernie’s worldview and plan for America won’t work, because it never does.
Trump’s plan worked: Less regulation, lower (and reasonable) corporate taxes increased confidence in business, which means more people were hired, which means more people are employed, more money, more production, less government, rinse and repeat.
History will show that the simplest and best government policy is the one where we are most free of government.
Bernie will show us what happens when government takes over every facet of our life, and then we will see what socialism really feels like firsthand. We will really feel the burn, won’t we?
Enjoy the good times while they last. Good night and good luck.
