DEFEAT THE DEMOCRAT, PROGRESSIVE LEFT

NY City Tammany Hall leader “Boss” Tweed, 1860’s-70’s

Although I’m more conservative than liberal, I always try to be even-handed in my writing, giving both sides of issues.  However, the Left has become so radical, and even criminal at times, that I thought one article that was not even-handed is in order and appropriate…just one.

1. Donald J. Trump was not a politician when he ran for President.  Over the years, he contributed millions to both Democrats and Republicans.  As President, he is not ideological but looks for policies and solutions that are practical.  Democrats, Mainstream Media, Hollywood, and Academia hate him so much that it looks like those groups have become unhinged and even deranged.  Large sums of money are spent by George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, and other Democrat Party benefactors to pay agitators, through far-left organizations, to be on call to be violent and counterprotest any group or issue the’re told to protest.

2. The media has become so dishonest that absolutely nothing it says about President Trump can be believed.  It is also guilty of “bias by omission” since it reports next to nothing that makes President Trump look good.

3. Democrat Party leaders refuse to debate issues but instead make “ad hominem” (personal) attacks against Republicans.  The reason for this is that their policies are really stupid to the extent that they cannot be successfully defended from arguments against them.

4. Democrat policy positions on everything, from Immigration to Healthcare to Tax  Cuts, are disingenuous and are geared solely to further the Democrat Party at the expense of the American public.

5. Far-left Democrats should commend President Obama because he really tried his very best to drastically weaken our military, economic system, and Healthcare in order to further his Socialist agenda and that of the Democrat Party (by having a large permanent poverty class dependent on the government for basic subsidence).  He also allowed a large number of illegal aliens into the U.S. since most will eventually vote Democrat, and he doubled the National debt (from $10 trillion to $20 trillion), coming close to bankrupting the country.

6. The Democrat Party and Barack Obama destroyed healthcare insurance for millions of Americans; only those receiving free medical insurance did well under Obamacare.

7. The far left shouts down conservative speakers on college campuses, as well as destroys property in its demonstrations, thus demonstrating it does not believe in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution on freedom of speech.

8.  Many Democrat leaders, such as Eric Holder and Maxine Waters have actually advocated violence while the Main-Stream Media falsely accuse President Trump of instigating violence.

9. If the news media competently did its job and reported fairly on both sides of every issue despite its leftist views, much of the problems I mention above would go away.

10. Many Republican leaders are timid and cannot competently argue conservative policy positions though those positions are usually far better than liberal positions.  Were it not for Fox News, talk radio and President Trump, the Republican Party would be in terrible shape.  In other words, as stupid as most liberal positions are, the timidity of many Republican leaders really hurts the adoption of conservative policy positions.

When Democrat Party loyalists see what has happened to their party and punish it by not supporting it until it changes, the Party should then clean itself up and consequently become more competitive and win many more elections.

IF YOU’RE NOT A LIBERAL AT 20…; IF YOU’RE NOT A CONSERVATIVE AT 40…

WW II British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said “if you’re not a Liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you’re not a Conservative at 40, you have no brain.”  What exactly did Churchill mean and is it valid? That’s what this brief post is about.

At 20 years old, people are usually idealistic and usually believe what their mentors (teachers, professors) inculcate into them.  However, the parents of teachers and professors in most of today’s universities and colleges became Liberal in the 1960’s when draft dodgers fled there to avoid the Draft and Vietnam.  Consequently, students today hear only one side of  national issues, and further, are discouraged to even listen to both sides, because the other side is characterized as being racist or sexist or whatever.

At 40 years old, people are usually much more mature, often with a spouse and children, and begin devoting much more time following public issues.  Moreover, they have lived long enough to become much better at recognizing  the lies and deceit engaged in by many politicians.  And because many at age 40 now have children, National issues take on much greater importance with the realization that many Liberal/Progressive policies not only don’t work, but actually do great harm to the people that they supposedly are intended to help.

I’m 50% Conservative and 50% Liberal.  That does not mean 50% Republican and 50% Democrat.  What’s Liberal or Conservative about $19 trillion in National Debt?  What’s Liberal or Conservative about health care that is a confusing, disorganized, and unaffordable the way Obamacare is configured?  What’s Liberal or Conservative about a weak military or a foreign policy that punishes our allies and rewards our enemies?

At 75, I’m in the last part of my life, and I’d love to leave this world knowing that the U.S. will be OK, but I’m not there yet,however most young people scare me because they can vote, though they know less than nothing about the issues…less than nothing because much/most of what they think they know is misinformation.  I don’t mean to sound critical, because it’s natural for the young to spend their time pursuing mates, getting an education and starting a career.  However, on November 8, 2016, President Trump turned around the economy, after coming close in a Obama-led race to the trash heap of history.  Whether  the Trump economy continues to play out might depend on how the young vote, the young being the group whose future would be the most devastated by another Democrat President-controlled big-government statist president.

A famous British prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, said it best:  “The problem with socialism is that, sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”  The U.S. got very close to running out of being financially able to borrow more of other people’s money.  I believe that President Trump has stopped this from happening.
