Many believe that the policies championed and supported by the political Left are crazy because they make all Americans worse off.  I also find Leftist policies difficult to understand in terms of making people’s lives better, so I thought it useful to attempt to discover why the Left adopts them, especially since the Biden Administration is adhering to them and they are (predictably) adversely affecting most Americans.

1.IMMIGRATION: As promised during his Presidential campaign, Joe Biden has pursued open borders, especially along the U.S.’ southern border.  Most Americans, though very compassionate, do not approve because drugs and many criminals are sneaking across with the help of Mexican cartels.  Biden and the Democrat Party have facilitated this with the pretext of compassion, but the real reason I believe is because they know that at least 3/4 of them will eventually vote Democrat and that the children of illegal immigrants will automatically be U.S. citizens who, of course, can vote.

2. ECONOMY: Annual inflation is over 8%.  Many necessary products (like baby formula) are not readily available.  The economy is in recession.  These phenomena are all the fault of the President and the Democrat Party policies, mostly from multi-Trillion-dollar bills that they voted into law or, in the case of baby formula shortages, from incompetence (like shutting down the largest producer [Abbott] without devising a plan to replace it).  Biden’s pretext(s) are numerous, like the Ukraine War, stopping Russian oil purchases, climate change, compassion, President Trump, etc. The real reasons are: 1) the political Left wants it, and 2) incompetence.

3.CLIMATE CHANGE: The Left is anti-fossil fuels (gas, oil, coal).  It has shut down pipelines and oil and gas leases, raised prices for permits, and discouraged  institutions to loan money for oil and gas exploration and drilling. All of these policies have resulted in decreased oil and gas production which in turn resulted in much higher prices for oil, gas and the 6,000 products made from them.  About 60% of the current 8+% inflation is largely due to Biden and the Democrat Party, using the pretext for their policies as  concern about climate change; the most significant threats to the U.S. are actually China, Russia, Iran and North Korea and the concern about climate change is absurd, given these real threats, because America will likely be bombed into the Stone Age with three nuclear bombs exploded far above the atmosphere in the U.S. long before climate change has any serious effects.

4.GUN CONTROL: The Left’s solution for preventing mass shootings is to ban guns from law-abiding citizens, despite the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing this right.  The fact that there’s are currently about 400 million handguns owned by Americans make’s this rationale ridiculous. Also, criminals do not follow the law and have no problem getting guns no matter what the law says. The real reason I believe is that if and when the Left is ready, it will take control of the U.S.  and citizens would not have the weapons to fight back.  Sounds crazy?  This “craziness” is the reason the Founding Fathers had for including the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights (to help keep government from becoming a dictatorship).

5. ELECTION FRAUD:  There has been some cheating at elections ever since elections have been held.  The fraudsters have continually improved their tactics to the point now that, with China’s help, they can win any election they want to win.  Recently, the massive onslaught of mail-in ballots, using the pretext of fear of Covid, has enabled Joe Biden to become President of the United States.  The movie, “2,000 Mules” and the book, “Rigged” provides sufficient evidence, though there’s a lot more available, which I have.

6.ELECTRIC VEHICLES: Vehemently supported by the Left, their pretext for pushing expensive electric vehicles is to get off of fossil fuels because they increase carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. However, the electricity to charge the batteries in electric vehicles is also generated by the burning of coal and natural gas.  Also, electric vehicles are more vulnerable to EMPs (Electro-Magnetic Pulses) compared to gas and diesel-powered vehicles.  Finally, electric vehicles require about 19 or so “rare-earth” minerals, which are mostly produced in China.  Of course, this means that the U.S. would be dependent on China to get the rare-earth minerals it needs to build cars.  The subsidies to new companies and the kick-backs given in turn are the real incentive to the Left for electric vehicles.

7.RACE: The Left has used race almost since its inception.  It was pro-slavery, then pro-Klu Klux Klan, then pro-Jim Crow laws, then pro-Eugenics (Margaret Sanger and her “Planned Parenthood”); consequently African-Americans voted Republican from Emancipation to about 1960 at which time they voted mostly Democrat with as much as 96% in Presidential elections.  The Democrat Party’s very poor performance in helping African-Americans is turning many to vote Republican.  The Democrat Party’s constant emphasis and focus on race has seriously hurt race relations.  The pretext is “concern for people of color.”  The real reason is they have had enormous success using race and want to continue to use it.

8.CRIME:  The Left is much more concerned about the rights of criminals rather than the rights of victims,  possibly for the prison vote since more States are allowing prisoners to vote.  The pretext is that over 50% of prisoners are black, though their percent of the population is only 13%, and this “unfairness” can be  corrected by not prosecuting crimes.  While President Biden and the Democrat Party initially supported the “Defund the Police” movement, his vice-president (while still just a Senator), Kamala Harris, actually paid to bail-out rioters in some of the 574 riots held by Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA during the summer of 2020.  Mega-donor and far-left billionaire, George Soros, funded the campaigns of many big-city district attorneys that stopped prosecuting most crimes in their cities, which of course led to the huge increases in crime in those cities.

9.THE MILITARY: President Biden gave a small increase to the Defense Department budget which was too small to even keep up with inflation. Most Democrat presidents are either neutral or anti-military, which results in a weaker military.  With the military, the Far-Left doesn’t usually hide its disdain except that it doesn’t want a strong America, because it believes we are racist and don’t deserve it.  However, the U.S. needs a strong military to counter China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran.

I only listed nine areas above but there are others, such as education in the public schools which the Left is destroying.  The Left used to hide their motives and beliefs, but increasingly they are coming out with their simplistic (and ridiculous) solutions to complex problems.  A good way to see what they are really up to is to watch what they do, not say, because they know the right words to say.  Moreover, Main Stream Media, as well as CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, Washington Post, etc. are all “in-the-tank” with the Left, so they can’t be trusted to just report the news.  Great books that provide evidence on what the Left and most of the Media are up to is Mark Levin’s “American Marxism,” and Pete Hegseth’s “Battle for the American Mind.”
