There is still a good deal of work to do here, but the news continues to be good. And not what the Democrats would hope for. They were all in on economic ruin heading into the election.
The idea was to unseat Trump and take as many Republicans with him as they could. Heck, they promised to take them (republicans) out after if they won. Trump supporters are all on notice. Wondering if they mean it, look at the mobster handmaids in Antifa and BLM and tell me if you think they were serious?
The solution to that, as it so happens, is related to our economic health. Keeping Democrats out of office is the best thing you can do for an economy. It also happens to improve the odds that you’ll have safer neighborhoods, better lifestyles, and lower taxes.
It was a joke in 2018, but it’s real now. Jobs, not Mobs. It seems like a simple enough choice, and yet some folks still don’t see it.
