Obama has had his way with America.
You name the liberal proposal, and in some form or another, it has been imposed on the country.
Democrats should have no complaints. Right? After all, they elected a man of the Left who has fundamentally transformed this country, many by executive fiat. A quick list:
√ Legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants.
√ Transgender bathrooms.
√ Wall Street reform.
√ Higher taxes on the rich.
√ Higher taxes on us all.
√ Gay marriage and the normalization of homosexuality.
√ Massive increase in government regulation in all aspects of lives.
√ Disengagement from the world stage via a “lead from behind strategy.”
√ Mandated contraception and abortifacients in health insurance.
√ Huge support for Black Lives Matter.
This is a stunning list of accomplishments for the Democratic Party. We have witnessed a leftward lurch, the likes of which this country has never seen. Every Democratic voter in America must be beaming.
They’re not. In fact, they are angry. In fact, many seem enraged.
Things just aren’t going so well. A quick list:
√ The economy is in the tank. This is the worst economic recover since WWII.
√ Middle class wages are stagnant. The middle class is shrinking.
√ Health insurance rates continue to explode at the same time benefits erode.
√ Parents are afraid to let their daughters use a public restroom.
√ The world is burning.
√ Christians are being martyred at record rates. The religion is quickly being expunged from the Mideast.
√ The government is your enemy if you don’t think or pray the right way.
√ Government deficits have more than doubled.
√ The number of people on food stamps has exploded to shocking levels.
√ Social Security and Medicare are going broke.
To recap, liberalism isn’t working. It is making this country, and the world, worse, much worse.
Hillary Clinton is basically running on a platform of more of the same. Bernie Sanders is running on a platform that Obama didn’t go far enough, that we simply need a lot MORE of the same: more taxes on everyone; a lot more taxes on the most productive; more government regulations; more government takeover of the private sector.
It never seems to dawn on his horde of young Leftists that his prescriptions failed in Venezuela, Cuba, the Soviet Union, and practically anywhere else it has been tried. Socialism is a loser.
Sadly, these snowflakes have never been taught critical thinking skills.
They simply want free stuff.
