Hmmm… let’s see… Three years of Donald Trump in the White House, and what have we got to show for it?
Lowest unemployment rate ever. Highest workforce participation rate in living memory. Bad trade deals out, better ones in. ISIS virtually wiped out. Reduction of tensions with North Korea. Countless idle and burdensome regulations erased. Millions of people off food stamps. And all of this with Democrats, nooze media, and the colleges and looniversities opposing him every step of the way.
It raises a question: “Why can’t our professional expert career politicians do stuff like this?”
True, some pathetic attempts were made to hijack the re-invigorated American economy and re-brand it “the Obama economy.” Those relied on a presumption of amnesia on the part of the public. Like, we somehow forgot Obama himself saying the manufacturing jobs were never coming back, not ever, and sneering at Trump and saying, “What’s he gonna do, wave a magic wand?” Well, common-sense economic policies would look like incomprehensible sorcery to such as he.
Meanwhile Joe Biden talks about kids rubbing his hairy legs and Elizabeth Warren is good for a new lie every day. Presidential timber, courtesy of our professional political class.
Another question: “What do we need our ruling class for?” I mean they despise us; everything we want them to do is somehow “impossible”; they sell us out to special interests, even to foreign special interests, every chance they get; and they are clearly ineffectual, bumbling, and, above all, shockingly corrupt nincompoops. They sit there in Washington and waste our money (when they’re not simply stealing it) and dream up schemes to “fundamentally transform” our country into God knows what. They’re more interested in pleasing Planned Parenthood than they are in pleasing the American people.
Donald Trump came from outside the political class and has racked up all these accomplishments in just three years–again, with the bad guys opposing him every step of the way.
Maybe our political class shouldn’t be in our politics anymore.
