On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi took swings at President Trump after the State of the Union Address. If you recall, Pelosi decided to tear up the President’s speech just after he finished on TV. No doubt she felt like she was proving something. On Thursday, she decided to share exactly what she wanted to prove.
Speaking to reporters, Pelosi shared that the President was using Congress for the backdrop of a reality show. She says that the President’s speech was a manifesto of mistruth and falsehood. As I said following the speech, you may not like President Trump (it’s obvious Pelosi hates him) but the economy is going strong. He has done a lot of good things policy wise for the American people. The problem is the hate that Pelosi harbors for the President.
But it’s not just Pelosi, it’s all of these Democrats. They truly believe that because this economy is so good, it’s actually bad. It’s horrible that so many people are working. They believe it’s horrible that African-American and Hispanic-American unemployment is down. This hurts their voter base. It takes people away from government dependence and moves them toward independence.
Pelosi says that she has extended every possible courtesy to President Trump. She believes she has done everything she can to attempt to work with him. But Pelosi has done nothing but denigrate the President since his election. She says that this President is dangerous to the American people, but I would argue that it’s exactly the opposite. Pelosi’s Democrats are dangerous for American’s.
I don’t say these things as a Republican, but rather a conservative. It’s apparent after the impeachment vote that you cannot simply trust someone because they say they are a Republican (looking at you Mitt Romney). I don’t think that Republicans have all the right answer either. As a conservative, explosive spending by our government concerns me. Trump has grown the size of the federal government with new departments and programs as well.
You have to look full picture, however. The Democrats are proposing radical growth of our government like we have not seen since FDR. From the Green New Deal to all of the free programs they want, the federal government would expand to radical levels. Some call it socialism, others call it communism. I call it absolute insanity.
Our founding fathers never intended for us to have a radically large federal government. In Federalist 45, James Madison argued that the balance between state and federal government was to be harmonious to contribute to the happiness of the people. He explains that the role of the federal government was not to address life, liberty and property issues. He explains that was the role of the state government, but that the federal government would be there for protection in war, to preserve liberty and to promote harmony of the states.
The Democrats now argue that the federal government should have control and say in all aspects of life. The federal government should have a say over your private business, your personal healthcare, your education or anything else that they want to encroach on. This was never the design, but the Democrats do not see it this way. They argue that the federal government should make your life easier.
Giving up freedom in order for a government to take care of me is not ideal. Government dependence is never ideal, but this is exactly what the Democrats want. They want you to go to the federal government for healthcare, education, property, food, etc. Trump is far from a perfect president or a role model for young children, but he’s not the dangerous one. Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats are the real threat to the American way of life.
