I am not tired of winning yet

February 22, 2019

Democrats running for President face a serious obstacle: most voters over the age of four remember what it was like when they were last in charge.  They can’t say, “Put us back in charge so we can bring back stagnant wages, anemic job creation and record low GDP growth!” So they’ve settled on a new tack: Sure, under Trump, GDP and job creation are both way up, wages are rising and unemployment is at historic lows in all demographics.  But that’s not good enough!  Like walls, jobs become immoral when they're created under Trump!

No, I’m not kidding.  That’s actually the argument they’re making: sure, you have jobs now, and your pay is rising at long last, but those aren’t “moral jobs.”  America needs a “moral” economy, which they define as more government control of the means of the production to make it do things that liberal politicians believe are moral.

First of all, why would anyone turn to politicians for moral guidance?  That’s like asking a hog for tips on table manners.  Second, we know these particular politicians have a soft spot for socialism.  Here’s a socialist’s definition of “moral” government: we’re sending food and medicine to aid starving Venezuelans and socialist President Maduro is closing the border to keep it from coming in.

What these Democrats are actually calling for is more government interference, more regulations, more taxes -- in short, more of everything that stifled economic growth for eight long years. They claim it’s immoral that the costs of prescription drugs and college are so high, but that’s largely due to government interference in the marketplace. Sen. Kamala Harris even repeated the debunked claim that Americans are “working two or three jobs" to survive.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 4.9% of Americans have more than one job.  That includes many people who choose to work more than one job because of the gig economy or just for the variety and challenge (and no longer because their brain child, Obamacare, punished businesses for hiring more than 50 employees full time.) 

These candidates claim that they want to impose “shared prosperity,” but by expanding government and choking private sector job creation, what they really impose is shared misery.  But that’s okay, as long as we’re all equally miserable.  No thanks.  I’m not tired of winning yet.

Incidentally, my favorite part of that linked story is actually this footnote at the end: 

“CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story indicated that there were 200,000 new jobs in January, and the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent. It has since been corrected to note that there were 304,000 new jobs alongside a 4.0 percent unemployment rate. The Washington Examiner regrets the error.”

I’ll bet all the Democratic Presidential candidates quoted in it don’t regret the error, they just regret the correct statistics. 

By the way, here’s a concrete (headed) example of what happens to jobs when leftist politicians start injecting their definition of “morality” into the marketplace:

    DemoKKKRAT’S most important goal is to grow the government. As the government grows our freedoms wain, our incomes suffer, and our power as individuals dissipates. As government grows so does corruption, control, and the destruction of capitalism, capitulating to the misery of socialism. I WILL NEVER TIRE OF WINNING!

    Yes, I feel that we SHOULD be winning. President Trump is doing a great job, especially considering the opposition of the Democrats and the MSM.
    The Democrats running for presidential nomination have nothing but crazy ideas.
    But unless the vile deeds of the Democrats are exposed (and even if they are?), they have succeeded in dividing America. They are doing it so they can blame it on President Trump, and to cover up previous crimes.

    Immoral jobs: has a nice progressive ring to it. The progressive agenda is to break whatever they wish to control - i.e., healthcare, banking, climate control and anything else they can conjure up. There are progressive leaders and followers. Oh, and critics of progressivism. Immorality, like so many other words in the progressive dictionary, has been altered from Webster's version. If the advances in our American quality of life come without the government's control over life then it is immoral. The obvious conclusion, then, is to provide proper and moral leadership we must 'break' everything not under to government control in order to 'fix it' by using economics, the environment, healthcare and any other means at their disposal to 'herd' us into their 'feed lot' for our own good. Now, I have this one question. Socialists regard the wealthy as immoral but there are wealthy people bank-rolling socialist candidates. I do not for a minute think this is an altruistic move brought about by their guilt over having more than someone else. I DO highly suspect it is a ploy on their part to be a part of the proletariat greedily feeding on the misfortunes of people stuck in the system they created. But then I am just an old cynic.

    I'm sure you've seen the following in its various versions and perversions, but here is the latest (assembled by me):
    You have two cows:
    Under socialism the government takes both and gives you the milk.
    Under communism the government takes both and sells you the milk.
    Under fascism the government takes both and shoots you.
    Under the "Green New Deal" the government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away.
    Under Capitalism you sell one of your cows and buy a bull.
    If you are an entrepreneur, you keep your two cows, lease the bull from the capitalist. After he's done doing what bulls do best, you send him back (so you don't have to feed him), and build up your herd twice as fast.

    How many of the above systems create wealth?

    While it’s certain that we must attempt to operate on the premise that we are NOT a Third World Country , facts such as HRC being given the Debate question Answers
    Prior to the debate, the facts around Comrade Bernie being corruptly ousted, donations,handling of & distribution of monies diverted and lack of charges or accountability , over 100,000 illegals registered to vote on Florida Rolls recently
    may strongly indicate our Nation will never see any FAIR Elections again.Open Borders, drivers licenses issued to illegals and such strongly indicate we are a Third World Country in a State Of Lawlessness! No freedom of Speech on Campus and best not get caught seen wearing a red Cap ! Very sad !

    hate to say this, no I don't, since when are democrats EVER moral? They have no concept of what moral is. Even if they do they can't articulate it. Just like they can't "articulate" the facts for collusion. What is a moral job? What a joke! And no, this kind of winning, does NOT get old. I'll take at least 8 more years of it. And a bunch of deep staters in jail and public trial results sent out to the American people on all networks. When we get rid of the deep staters, there won't be enough dems left to bring us any harm. God is watching, it's time for the blasphemers to pay.

    I just love the way you write, I can't help but laugh at the ridiculousness of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately, their stance on most issues
    Is actually very sad, and bad for this country and its people. I pray that more people can see through , and understand what is really going on, for the sake of our country and its people!

    The lying snakes democrates(some republicans),will find a way "to twist" things, for sure! Dictator Obama, a Socialist,giving free, don't need jobs, Government take care of you! Friends would tell me, I get more from Gov,so, why work! Alarmingly,that's the attitude of far too many! We must stand against it! As VP Pence stated, it's not that God is on our side, but, that we're on God's side! Praise the Lord Jesus Christ

    All this information is great on your page but I have yet to see it or hear it on ANY news station here in Colorado. NOT ONE ounce of this is being produced so that the people are hearing, seeing what actually is happening and then hearing, seeing what the Democrats are trying to debunk. And where are any Republicans anywhere saying anything about anything trying to refute everything that Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the misguided Dems are putting out there??? To me, it's as though the Republican party has crawled in some kind of hole and why can't we DEMAND a fair and equal amount of time on TV to show the facts etc? Where is the Republican party????

    Mike Thanks 4 todays newsletter I glow a bit brighter each day as I watch the media and the morons continue to impress me with their Ignorance I love when Fox replays the disgust these presidential candidates have when they think they are driving home a point that make decent people look indecent. This black gay guy with the rope and all his nonsense set the media up again along with their chop licking candidates and the rest of the Collection who condemned the Trump supporters to make complete fools of themselves. I now wonder if the "Educated White Suburban women" are beginning to notice what the buffoons on the left are selling. Most of them probably attended a left wing school so it will take time for them to catch on. We still have time to reverse their thinking after all the left shows their stupidity every day. Keep em talking I think our Educated White Suburban Women will catch on. With wages rising, lower taxes, low women unemployment rate, Hey ladies what do ya have to lose? If you go left remember higher taxes unemployment losing job benefits abortion the list goes on but its your life if you have children you may want to think about them also. The lefts agenda will not allow them to rise to a better lifestyle. Think Russia Cuba think why are so many people wanting to come here they want you to pay higher taxes to feed house have their babies delivered is it possible you may want all that for your family? How many dollars do you have to go around?

    People don't care what the talking heads or the pathological liars say; we know the media is nothing but the propaganda arm of the dems anyway. I can't help but notice the blatant (I have a real grasp for the obvious; it's a gift) hypocrisy of cheering for murdering the most innocent and lecturing us on what is moral. If I never heard another liberal open his/her pie hole again that would be great.

    The Democratic platform will only further guarantee another term for President Trump. The American people overwhelmingly reject their message, their ideology, and their skewed values. I am convinced the only reason most Democrats are in office today is rampant voter fraud.

    "Most voters over the age of four..." Aren't ALL voters over the age of four? Or has a new version of voter fraud been discovered? XD

    "First of all, why would anyone turn to politicians for moral guidance? That’s like asking a hog for tips on table manners." Be careful, Huckabee, because the last time I checked, you were a politician too. ;)

    But I get what you're saying here. A good deal of politicians are corrupt, which is part of why Trump won; he was a wild card, true, but while I had no idea what Trump would actually do in office, I did know that Hillary would continue to be corrupt.

    Thank you for all your insights into what's happening in politics in the US. We need more people to keep getting the word out about the hypocrisies of the Left. I can't call them Liberals as that just doesn't fit their agenda. I am a Patriot and a conservative with just a little liberal bent. But, I want common sense policies and try my best to share information I feel should be heard. Thanks again, Deb
