One year ago, we were in the middle of the aftermath of a highly controversial and contested election for President, in which Joe Biden supposedly received 16 million more votes than anyone in history including the immensely popular Barack Obama, despite having rarely campaigned except for tightly scripted occasional appearances from his basement or standing on a platform in a small parking lot somewhere yelling at a dozen or so cars while squinting at a teleprompter.
A year ago, a vaccine for Covid-19 had just been announced as available thanks to Operation Warp Speed initiated by President Donald Trump, which brought at least 3 vaccines to the market place in record time—something his critics and the media scoffed would never happen. In fact, then candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris both trashed the vaccines and claimed that because they were developed under Trump, they wouldn’t trust them. My, how times have changed! Now Joe Biden wants to force you to have it even if you’ve had Covid and have natural antibodies that are likely more effective than the vaccine itself. He wants you to be kicked out of the military, lose your private sector job, and be prohibited from traveling or eating in restaurant unless you have your shot and of course, show your papers as proof. And if you fail to comply, NO SOUP FOR YOU!
Our economy was humming one year ago and Americans were returning to work after the deep freeze of a Covid lockdown. Schools were opening in many states for in-person learning.
And as people planned for Thanksgiving, the average cost of a turkey was $12 and the average cost of gas to get to grandma’s house was $2.11 a gallon.
This Thanksgiving, the cost of that same turkey will be about $21 and average price of gas is $3.50 across the country and millions of Americans are losing their jobs because they don’t want to take the Covid shot.
What’s the big change? Democrats, controlled by the far-left progressives who don’t mind and in fact appreciate being called socialists, are in complete control of our government and its policies. Joe Biden has shut down our energy pipelines, created a supply chain nightmare by imposing strict rules on transportation and union demands, and has implemented policies related to Covid that have paid people to not work instead of taking one of the record millions of jobs that are currently unfilled.
And parents across the country who are fed up that their children are being indoctrinated with racist hate about how evil America is have started showing up to the school boards their taxes pay for and which they own and for their exercise of their rights of citizenship have been branded by the Biden Department of Justice as “domestic terrorists.”
Barack Obama famously said “elections have consequences.” He may have been wrong about a lot of things, but he was right about that! But sometimes the consequences are horrific. And if you are unable to see the consequences of putting left-wing socialists in charge in the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives, then you must be a newborn puppy and your eyes are still closed.
All you really need to know about what the left has done to our country is summed up in 2 words: gas and groceries. There are some things that you can hold off buying if inflation drives up the cost, like a new suit, a new car, or a piece of furniture. But no matter how rich or how poor you are, you have to put food on your table. And you have to put gas in your tank to get to work or school and even if you take a city bus, it will cost more to cover those fuel prices.
So if you like what’s happened to your cost of gas and groceries, then keep voting for Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the Democrats. But don’t forget to take heed to the words of another Democrat who said, “Elections have consequences.”
