For decades Democrats have been pushing Republican administrations aside as the Dems progressed toward the leftist Valhalla of Socialism/Communism, and to hell with what American citizens wanted or objected to.
And then along came Donald Trump and the rules changed. Trump was a non-political, self-made man who loved America, not power, adoration or praise, so he set out to make life better for Americans, and he was wildly successful. Trade deals were re-balanced, the stock market grew and expanded, a beautiful wall was built along our southern border, and Americans were better off and freer than they had been in twenty years.
Illegal immigration was slowed significantly, if not stopped completely in many places. Blacks and Hispanics, along with all other American minorities and non-minorities alike, had more money and better jobs than ever before.
Then the Chinese released the Wuhan virus and President Trump took the unprecedented action of halting all flights from China entering our country in order to curtail the spread of the disease and then did the last thing he wanted to do, a thing that was to do more harm to America than the virus itself: after conferring with his health and medical advisors, he locked-down America. Then he took the lead to assure a continued healthy America by accelerating a vaccine development, personal protection for healthcare personnel, equipping emergency hospitals and hospital ships, encouraging the development of pharmaceuticals that he himself needed when he tested positive for the disease. The need for the shut-down soon proved to be ill-advised, but he had relied on the word of his mostly-leftist, big-government, swamp-dwelling, health advisers who were all too favorably disposed to imposing big government on America. At the outset of the disease these advisors had presented soon-to-be realized faulty models showing the devastating advance and lethality of the disease, which was grossly exaggerated.
Too many people died from the disease, but not the two million people that the overly-pessimistic models predicted. Pre-existing conditions or a sickbed in one of Andrew Cuomo’s state-controlled nursing homes caused most of the deaths, and we soon learned that the disease was ninety-nine percent survivable if you were otherwise healthy.
The lockdown had side effects much worse and longer-lasting than the disease it was intended to end. Depression, alcoholism, drug overdoses, suicide and no school for children became the enduring tragedies of the controlled destruction of the U.S. economy.
So with the to-be-expected extreme attacks on President Trump in which he was personally blamed for the deaths he fought hard to limit, and in line with his own opinion that the lockdown was ill-advised in the first place, President Trump called for the end of the lockdown, and all political officials, except Democrat mayors and governors, began lifting the onerous controls on businesses and personal liberties in an attempt to return life in America to normal and to get citizens back to work and prosperity again.
At about this point the ever-more-confused Joe Biden fraudulently got an electoral advantage over President Trump in the 2020 election and immediately promised to impose a new lockdown on the struggling nation, and swore that everyone would be required to wear a facial mask into eternity. One waits with bated breath to see how psychotically animated and dangerous Biden and his advisors become when the annual cold and flu season arrives on top of the covid threat. The controls these fools may put in place could destroy the American economy for decades.
This threatening situation demonstrates the difference between Republicans and modern-day Democrats: Democrats want control and power over the ignorant masses out there in fly-over country, and once they get that power they use it to the fullest extent to stifle any complaints and opposition that citizens may have. The Democrat position is, that if you refuse to wear a useless mask then you are selfish and unpatriotic and a threat to anyone you may come into contact with, so it’s a prison for you for not obeying your Democrat bosses.
This totalitarian behavior of Democrats is an example of the philosophy of President Clinton’s advisor, Rahm Emanuel, when he stated that in order for the political left to get and retain power, “no crisis should go to waste”, and the Democrat reaction to the covid threat proves they are using Emanuel’s advice and milking this current health threat for all the power and control over Americans that they can get from it. Americans can certainly and unfortunately expect ramifications from this disease to continue to cause pain and suffering for a long time as Democrats use it to halt personal liberty in America.
President Trump had greater access to power than the Democrats did as this disease presented itself, power that Joe Biden may, unfortunately, gain in January of 2021. But Trump didn’t use that power to forcibly lock people into their homes and lose their livelihoods. He imposed the lockdown briefly, in response to his health advisors, and then advised the nation to lift the lockdown regulations completely, and he promised to never impose such a devastating order on the nation again. But old Lunch Bucket Joe has promised to re-impose the lockdown on America again as soon as he becomes president, and he’ll order all persons in America to wear the worthless facial masks every day of their lives.
President Trump believes in personal liberty and individual decisions when considering the risks citizens are willing to take with their personal lives, while Democrats allow no personal decisions to be made by individual citizens as to the risks they are willing to take as free people. Democrats believe in raw power and the fist to keep people under control.
Related to this current viral crisis, one must also keep in mind Barack Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America”, and this “crisis” of the Wuhan virus gives an unprincipled leader like Joe Biden the power to completely transform our formerly free nation into a land of drudgery and misery.
