Why Vote Republican?

Why Vote Republican?

Why vote Republican? Well, would you vote for creation of almost 4 million jobs since the last election? Could you support that? Is it a good thing? Okay, the Republicans have got you covered.


Would you vote Republican if you knew more Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history? Would you agree that’s a good thing? Well what if you also knew we have created more than 400,000 manufacturing jobs since the last election would that be enough of a good thing to attract your vote?

Would you vote Republican if you understood manufacturing jobs are growing at the fastest rate in more than three decades? Is that a good thing? Well would it be enough to add that economic growth last quarter hit 4.2 percent. What was it before the last election? Are you a Republican voter yet?

Low Unemployment

Do you understand that new unemployment claims recently hit a 49-year low. How good is that news? Did you know median household income has hit highest level ever recorded? That’s good news, right? Would that be enough to make you a Republican voter?

African-American unemployment has hit the lowest rate ever recorded. And that’s pretty good news right? Hard to be a racist and help Blacks that much… isn’t it? Or how about Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded. Is that a racist result? Or Asian-American unemployment recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded. That’s a good thing too. Are you voting for the GOP yet?


Women’s unemployment recently reached the lowest rate in 65 years. Not too many of us have lived that long and those that have can’t remember what was going on then any way. And youth unemployment has recently hit the lowest rate in nearly half a century. That seems like something to take note of. Are you starting to think GOP policies are moving us in a better direction?

We have the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma. That’s important if keeping people out of poverty is worth pursuing. Veterans’ unemployment recently reached its lowest rate in nearly 20 years. Is anybody listening? That’s the economy humming along. Are you a Republican voter yet?


Almost 3.9 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps since the election. Less people in poverty is progress toward a desired goal, right? The Pledge to America’s Workers has resulted in employers committing to train more than 4 million Americans. Being committed to vocational education seems a good way to match people to available jobs. That’s a good thing, right? Ninety five percent of U.S. manufacturers are optimistic about the future… the highest ever. A better direction, an upward trajectory for the economy will raise standards of living. Is there anything you’ve heard from the opposition party that will move us in a better direction?

Retail sales surged last month, up another 6% over last year. The only way we can spend more is if we make more. We are spending more today because we are making more today. We have had the biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history. After tax cuts, over $300 billion poured back in to the U.S. in the first quarter alone. As a result of the tax bill, small businesses will have the lowest top marginal tax rate in more than 80 years. It seems like the results are going the right way. Are you a Republican voter yet?

ANWR is  open  and we have approval for Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines. A record number of regulations have been eliminated. We have enactment of regulatory relief for community banks and credit unions. Removal of the individual mandate from Obamacare is complete. The administration is providing more affordable healthcare options for Americans through association health plans and short-term duration plans. These are cost effective market solutions. Why aren’t you registering as Republican?


Good policy advances good governance which makes for better government. Governments need to enable the people they are in place to protect and defend to be more prosperous. To the extent the government allows people to advance their own interests they benefit society. We have been seeing that happen. Clearly we are better off today than we were 2 years ago. Why wouldn’t you vote Republican?
