Your president was in Davos for the World Economic Forum. Deep in enemy territory. No one really likes you. But Trump being Trump, he rubbed America’s economy in their collective globalist faces.
“This is a blue-collar boom,” the president stated at the conference in Davos, Switzerland. “Since my election the net worth of the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47 percent, three times faster than the increase for the top one percent.” … “Every decision we make on taxes, trade, regulation, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans,” he said. “Only when governments put their own citizens first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”
We push trade deals that advantage regular workers. Cut regulations and taxes to help job creators. The left whines and lies about every step Trump and Republicans take while the winners are the people they claim to defend.
And none of that matters if they don’t take notice and vote with their wallets. And the choice could not be starker.
Trump wants to continue the policies that have led to economic success (with an as-yet unaddressed promise to address spending and debt). Democrats plan to roll back Trump’s changes and add hundreds of trillion in new debt.
The tipping point is this. Will people be more interested in trying to chart their own economic future, or will the Democrats convince them to embrace a lifetime of state-managed subsistence-lifestyle serfdom?
The latter is easier, but once you are in, there is almost no way out. The former requires hard-work, risk, and has no guarantees, but maximizes your liberty.
America was founded by risk-takers, who wanted to manage their destiny. Several generations along, we appear to have bred that out of the population. Or have we?
