(National Sentinel) Winning: Left-wing Democrats are running in the November midterms without a real agenda other than “hate” and “socialism” because they can’t run on their real agenda, which amounts to a complete reversal of everything POTUS Donald Trump and the GOP Congress have accomplished thus far.
That’s really true of the economy. Democrats — especially the rising socialist wing of the party — want to roll back the GOP/Trump tax cuts for individuals, families, and businesses. Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcohontas” Warren is talking raising rates by as much as 50 percent.
Meanwhile, you have other Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who supposedly has a degree in economics, pushing Marxist policies like free health care, free college, guaranteed basic income, and robbing corporations of profits.
Other policies are coming down the pike as well if Democrats win back power, including a so-called “head tax” which has been implemented in Seattle. That law requires large corporations to pay an additional tax of hundreds of dollars for each employee they have. Seattle wants to use the extra money to — get this — build homeless shelters.
It’s madness. But that’s today’s Democratic [Socialist] Party, which wants to build a massive nanny state all Americans rely on for their existence.
While Venezuela serves as the latest example of how badly socialism fails, Trump’s economy serves as the latest example of how capitalism combined with pro-growth policies like cutting taxes and regulations is a stunning success.
— Small businesses are not only doing well, they’re booming. Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon wrote, “This truly is a golden age for small business. For the first time on record, there are more job openings than unemployed people looking for work.”
— In The Wall Street Journal, Bruce Meyer and James Sullivan noted that when it comes to poverty in America, “the White House tells the truth, but partisans on both sides are wedded to the idea of failure.” Their conclusion: “Encouraging self-sufficiency used to be a bipartisan issue; it can be again.”
[But of course, it won’t be because Democrats want to hook as many Americans as possible on government handouts.]
— In The Hill, Liz Peek observes that American families are much better off today despite desperation from Democrats “to convince voters that the improving Trump economy is not helping America’s workers.” She adds that people are confident because “jobs are plentiful” and “many people are seeing their wages go up.”
— “U.S. small-business owners are more optimistic now than at any point in the 15-year history of the Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index,” Frank Newport and Coleen McMurray write for Gallup. “This optimistic anticipation of new hires helps explain why many owners report that being able to find and hire good workers is their top challenge.”
— In CNBC, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen explains the private sector’s essential role in response to national cyber threats. “That is why last week [DHS] launched the National Risk Management Center, an initiative driven by industry needs and focused on fostering a better way to bring government and the private sector together to defend our nation’s critical infrastructure.”
— In the Miami Herald, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson says that the end to veteran homelessness is within reach in South Florida. “We have few responsibilities greater than making certain those who have sacrificed so much in service to this country have a home they can call their own.”
Americans are back to work. More of us are employed now that at any time in our history. The unemployment rate is at a historic low (3.9 percent — technically full employment). There are more jobs than workers. Wages are rising. Americans are prospering.
And never forget that Democrats want to destroy all of that progress.
