Democrat politicians, most notably Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, have been salivating over the near-destruction of America by way of the shutdown of businesses, and they have been predicting that everything has changed with the virus shutdown, plus they’ve been demanding a series of leftist, radical, Socialist/Communist dream issues, inspired by Barack Obama and his intention to “fundamentally transform America”. Here is the foolishness that Democrats like Cuomo have been crowing about in a post-corona America: a new normal of public health, a new normal of environmental issues, a new normal in the economy and a new normal of social justice, all intended to change America and undermine our laws and our constitution, and deny President Trump his re-election in November.
But what Democrats like Gov. Cuomo couldn’t foresee, due to their lack of understanding of the intelligence, flexibility and industriousness of American entrepreneurs and business owners, was that a “new normal” has already been established as the American economy has foundered under an official shutdown, and the people and businesses that Democrats hoped would suffer the most under this heavy burden have initiated basic changes to their businesses: drive-up restaurants, re-thought banking and loans, a new brand of at-home shopping and other ideas that have helped businesses survive and hopefully thrive, after the shutdown has ended. These things have also allowed entrepreneurs to imagine a new way of doing business on a permanent basis that could help them profit and deliver a better product at the same time, forever.
So the “new normal” that Democrats have called for and that they hoped would allow the political class to exercise more power and control over personal behavior and the conduct of small companies, has been thrown back in their faces by clever entrepreneurs and other hard working Americans.
Democrats hate profits and they hope endlessly that businesses will fail as they try to compete with each other. The problem Democrats come up against in such a situation is that when businesses fail, the government agencies that depend on the taxes from these entities find themselves short of revenue. And although Democrats hate the very concept and idea of profits, they love the money that comes from businesses making a profit. So Democrats like Andrew Cuomo dream of the “new normal”, as described above, which they hope will follow the destruction done by the coronavirus and the resulting shutdown, but when the owners of the impacted companies are able to devise new methods of delivering their product, Democrats lose a dependent that would have to resort to government handouts in order to stay alive, and Democrats are left with a reduced dependent class to vote for them and worship them. That’s the worst possible situation for vultures like Cuomo, Pelosi and Schumer to find themselves in, and it leaves them unable to force Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” on the American populace.
