Desperate Democrats

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 12, 2019

         THE DESPERATION DEMOCRATS FEEL WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP IS EASILY EXPLANABLE. THEIR COMMITMENT TO BIG GOVERNMENT IS THE GO-TO POSITION OF THE LEFT. IF PEOPLE DISCOVER THEY CAN DO MORE FOR THEMSELVES THAN GOVERNMENT CAN DO FOR THEM, THEY ARE FINISHED.

         SINCE THE FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT ADMINISTRATION AND THE GREAT DEPRESSION, GOVERNMENT HAS GROWN AND GROWN. AFTER PROSPERITY RETURNED, BIG GOVERNMENT DIDN’T SHRINK. IT GREW EVEN MORE, ADDICTING PEOPLE TO WELFARE AND CREATING ENVY OF OTHERS AND AN ENTITLEMENT MENTALITY.

         PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION ARE RESTORING A SENSE OF INDIVIDUALISM, THAT GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE A FIRST RESOURCE, BUT A LAST RESORT. THE SECULAR-PROGRESSIVE LEFT FEARS LOSING THEIR POWER AND THEY SHOULD. LOOK AT THE RESULTS: PRACTICALLY FULL EMPLOYMENT WITH THOUSANDS OF NEW JOB OPENINGS; A STOCK MARKET ON THE REBOUND, UP MORE THAN 500 POINTS SINCE LAST WEEK, CONSUMER CONFIDENCE UP.

         WHAT DOES THE LEFT HAVE? NOTHING. HOW DO THEY COUNTER SUCCESS? BY TRYING TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT. IN THE END I DOUBT IT WILL WORK, THOUGH THEY ARE DESPERATE AND WILL DO ANYTHING. I’M CAL THOMAS.
