Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
If you listen to the Democrat candidates for president, they wouldn't just welcome your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, they would create them. That would be the result if we would be foolish enough if we elect any of the announced Democrat candidates as our Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief. Some claim outright they are socialists, or socialist sympathizers, while the others will reject that designation, but their policies and actions will say otherwise.
We'll have 20 or more Democrats vying for the Democrat nomination for president before this summer, so it will be difficult to “separate the wheat from the chaff”. As the old saying goes, “You can't polish horse manure”, that will apply to what those candidates will say to try to motivate the loony liberals to vote for them in the primaries. Since the voting momentum is residing in the far left of the Democrat Party, they will try to pander to that group, but whoever wins the Democrat nomination, they then will pivot to the middle to try to entice the moderates in their party and the Independents, who make up about 30% of the voting electorate, to vote for him or her.
Since most Democrats are obsessed with only gaining political power, they will not tell the public what they really believe, they will say and do what they think the voting public wants to hear. Being honest is not the strong point of the Democrats who crave power, to them, the
end justifies the means.
What are the policies these Democrat candidates will pursue if they gain power? Here are just a few of those radical policies that most all believe in. Most have latched on to the Bernie Sanders call for Medicare for all. Most have jumped on the bandwagon of the “Green New Deal” as proffered by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new darling of the Democrat left who has labeled herself as a socialist. Most all say they are against Trump's proposal to build a wall at the Southern border. Most would rescind the Trump tax cuts that all Americans have benefited from, not just the rich, but also the middle-class and the working poor. All have said they would rejoin the Paris Climate Accords that Trump dropped out of. Many are in favor of paying off all or most of the student loan debt, thereby pandering to the indoctrinated millennial's who own most of that debt. If you add up all these “goodies”, it is estimated that it would cost the U.S. Treasury about $93 trillion over the first ten years if implemented. When asked how we could possibly pay for these proposals, most say that they will tax the wealthy, who they say that they are not paying their fair share. Little that they don't tell you is that if you taxed all our millionaires at 100%, we would still be short about $70 trillion. As Margaret Thatcher once opined, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money”.
Fellow Americans, don't fall for the “snake oil” that these Democrats are spewing in order to get your vote. We don't want to become a mediocre country, we want to remain an exceptional country under the guidance of our great president, Donald Trump, who with all his warts, will continue to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. We cannot afford to elect a socialist president.
