House Democrats have, in their wisdom, reelected Nancy Pelosi as Minority Leader. The Democrat Party is now considering Rep. Keith Ellison, D. Minnesota, to be head of the Democrat National Committee. As this is happening, Senator Elizabeth Warren, D. Mass. is gaining in stature as one of their most influential speakers. Let me be among the many, no make that some, no make that the very few to congratulate the Democrats on their choices.
It is clear that they have learned nothing from the election of Donald Trump. I believe them to be tone deaf. They just don’t get it. Well before this election, poll after poll reported that the American people were unhappy with the direction of the country. They were tired of identity politics. They were tired of “political correctness.” They were tired of America taking a weakened position in the world in every treaty and agreement we were involved with. As manufacturing companies moved to foreign countries for better tax positions and cheaper labor, our jobs went with them. America simply said enough.
Already Trump has made our position clear to Carrier Air Conditioning. You move your company to Mexico or any place outside of our borders, you will lose everything you gain in cheaper labor by facing higher tariffs and taxes. In addition, you will put in jeopardy every contract you have with the Federal Government. Carrier has apparently seen the light. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall in that room with the negotiations going on.
One of the next things you are going to see is billions and billions in American cash coming back into this country when the corporate tax rate is lowered. That money has been stashed overseas to protect it from the government tax grab. It will return and be put to use and our economy will benefit greatly from it.
This will just be the beginning of the remaking of America; the beginning of the unwinding of the mess Obama and the liberal Democrats have left us with. Obamacare will be a thing of the past. Let’s face it. This was never anything more than a redistribution of wealth, taking from those who earn and giving to those who live on the dole. Insurance and medical care are commodities, not public utilities and they need to be treated like commodities. Competition, not government intervention is the answer.
Now, concerning the Clintons. Silly me. I thought when Bill Clinton was disgraced, impeached, and subsequently disbarred from the practice of law for lying to a Grand Jury, that he would be relegated back to some garbage dump in Arkansas. Instead he and his criminal wife have become champions of the Democrats. They have given them riches beyond their wildest dreams. They even nominated her to be their standard bearer in the Presidential election. Which brings me to the question, how do you suppose the foreign governments and foreign dictators who poured millions into Hillary’s coffers, feel now? They thought they were buying influence and now she has none. Their money is in a rat hole and will be used to finance the opulent Clinton lifestyle. She has no influence. But wait. She has reported that she will probably run again in 2020 and you can pour money into her campaign again. Happy days will be here again.
I believe over the next four years that there will be such a reawakening of the true American spirit that the only way the Democrats will find any relevancy is to move their minds and policies out of the European Socialist Systems and back to traditional American ideas. The clock is already starting to tick. We shall see.
