Well, it didn’t take long for Twiddle Dee and Dum to chime in. Dum couldn’t figure out how I knew who John was Rag N on. I don’t know maybe it was all the seething rage that came through loud and clear, maybe it was the shot he took at Christians which he likes to do from time to time in his other letters. All I know is one needn’t be a Mensa member to figure it out.
About 50 years ago the Democrats figured something out. The people they had stood in the way of for a hundred years, now with the civil rights acts, were going to vote. They knew they better change tactics so they went low. For the next 40 years, they sliced us and diced us into groups and then pitted us against each other. Is it any wonder we’ve been at each other’s throats? What we see today is the product of the past 40 years of their political ploys. Who does it really benefit, not you or me but Democrat politicians in the swamp?
Stop and look for a minute at the communities they’ve run or maybe I should say run into the ground for the past 40-50 years. Mostly inhabited by the people they supposedly care for. For the most part, these places 50 years ago were in better shape. I remember an article that ran in this paper a few years ago that pointed out how in many cities in the wake of MLK’s death changed the names of streets that had mostly minority-owned businesses to MLK St. These were once prosperous places, then the Democrats came to town and said, hook your wagon to our train, as the article pointed out, it’s been downhill ever since. If you go around this country from city to city what do you find now, poverty, crime, and a new phenomenon created by their policies, food deserts?
I want people, the average Joe and Jane, to prosper and they don’t do that under Democrats. I mention this because I just watched Trump sign the new trade deals with the Leaders of Mexico and Canada. In the early ’90s, a rich guy named Perot said: “That sucking sound you hear is jobs leaving the country.” Clinton signed NAFTA, they left. The Democrats used to be or at least said they were the party of the working class, another sucking sound you’ve been hearing is them sucking up to the Elites, more money in it for them. Trump took advantage of their abandonment of the working people leading to his victory and the swamp hates him for it. Obama said those jobs were lost forever and they were if nobody ever tried to get them back. It won’t be perfect, nothing ever is but we have been hearing a whispering sound of jobs coming back. The haters and the resisters who only listen to the swamp water in the MSM will never hear it but hopefully, the average American will come election time.
