Democrats Reaction To State Of The Union Address

Kevin Felts political commentatorAnyone who is on social media has surely seen the pictures of Democrats reacting to President Donald Trumps State of the Union address.  In all honesty, we should not be surprised.

Democrats have a lot to be worried about.  The 2018 mid-term elections will be at the end of 2018, and with a booming economy, voting democrat means voting against ones on best interest.

The Democrat platform is built on fear, and has always been built on fear.  This goes all the way to before the United States Civil War.  Democrats will whisper in your ear, “See that person over there, they want to hurt you.  Don’t worry though, I am going to protect you.”

With the passage of the Civil Rights act Democrats had to find another group to demonize, so they slowly changed tactics to demonizing white male conservatives.  Democrats will whisper in the ear of minorities, “See that Republican, they want to hurt you.”  Usually, the implied hurt is through cutting social benefits, or enforcing immigration laws.

Now that Trump has shown he is will to work with Democrats on immigration, and has shown he is putting the United States first, it is getting more difficult for Democrats to demonize him.

When Trump talked about minority unemployment being at an all time low, Democrats sat on their hands.

When Trump talked about fair trade deals, Democrats sat on their hands.

Everything Trump talked about:

  • How the economy has improved,
  • stock market at all time high,
  • Tax cuts,
  • Companies investing in the U.S.A.
  • Apple investing billions in the U.S.A.

And all Democrats could do is sit there and fume.

Giving Obama Credit for Jobs

Some of the left leaning websites gave obama credit for the minority job market.  The question is, “exactly” what policy did the obama administration put into place that helped minorities?

We all know the obama administration was not built on unification.  If there was a way to bypass congress, then he did it.

Rather than working on balanced trade deals, the obama administration was signing free trade agreements,  Free trade does not create good paying jobs here in the U.S.A.

There is no proof the obama administration did anything to improve the lives of minorities.

Individual Mandate

One of the corner stones of the Affordable Care Act is the individual mandate.  Democrats love to brag how more people had health coverage, but did not mention people were forced to purchase health insurance.

The individual mandate was an oppression of individual liberties.  When the government forces someone to do something without due process of law, that is the same as slavery.  In short, every U.S. citizen was a slave to the insurance companies.

If Democrats “truly” believe in individual liberties, why were the people forced to purchase a product?

Tax Breaks

Democrats were opposed to tax breaks.  Why?  Because the foundation of their socialist agenda depends on tax and spend policies.

In order ti be competitive on the global market, the United States has to offer a competitive tax bracket.  High taxation has driven companies overseas.

Let’s be honest, people and companies should use whatever loopholes the laws allow to lower their tax burden.  Companies just have more money than people, so companies can hire the best attorneys.

To empower the Democrat party to continue their fear mongering, their targeted audience has to be poor.  Would fear mongering work on educated groups with a college degree and a good paying job?  Well, obama was reelected, so chances are yes.  Look at all the rich weak minded celebrities who supported obama and hillary.

For the most part however, Democrats feed off the poor and uneducated.  Giving those groups jobs, money, being able to buy a home, be able to go to college, breaks the strangle hold Democrat policies have on certain demographics.

Democrats Worst Fear

What is the Democrat parties worst fear?  It is the education and gainful employment of their voting base, which is usually poor minorities.

When minorities get a degree, buy a home, have a career and a family, they usually vote Republican.  Which means, in order to preserve their voters base, Democrats have to keep people poor and desperate.

Once a family is on welfare, it is easy for Democrats to win those votes.  All they have to do is tell that demographic Republicans want to slash your benefits.  To vote against Democrats would be to vote against their best interest.

However, all of that changes when people are no longer dependent on welfare and other social programs.

When people become self-sufficient, they no longer need government benefits.

When people no longer need government benefits, they stop voting Democrat.

  • Ending free trade.
  • Encouraging companies to invest in the U.S.A.
  • Changing the tax code.
  • Reducing regulations.
  • Putting people to work.
  • Rebuilding the rust belt.

Are all nails in the heart of the Democrats party.
