Prior to the global pandemic, the American economy was riding an unprecedented wave–the vanishing middle class reappeared in successful strides, Blacks and Hispanics experienced the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history, labor-force participation jumped by 4.6%, bottom wages were rising with ferocity from decades in the economic underbelly, and the average household income sat upon an all-time high of $4,384.00. Despite Obama’s attempt to claim credit when he could no longer deny prosperity
https://twitter.com/BarackObama/status/1229432034650722304 these are Trumps policies that spurred America to its most robust economy in nearly half a century.
Now as we know, the Coronavirus pandemic destroyed these gains like a scythe through a wheat field. An unforeseeable and unprecedented virus has swallowed the planet, and somehow Democratic nominee Joe Biden would like to not only blame this on Trump, but also has a stated interest in totally revamping the U.S. economy–all the while claiming he’s doing so in the name of Blacks, Hispanics, disabled people, marginalized groups, etc.
Curious. Those same groups were the portion of the population that benefited most from Trump’s policies –each enjoyed the lowest unemployment rates on record, as well as enjoying six times the weekly wage increases in three years under Trump’s tax cuts as they did under eight years of Obama. But Biden, the puppet on a string for the more sinister leftist elements in the shadows of the Democratic Party (“Free Shit Platform” AOC, “Drain the Banks” Elizabeth Warren, and “I Can’t Remember the Time in History When Socialism Ever Worked” Bernie Sanders), wants to pitch the narrative that four years of Trump has been disastrous for minority groups such as Blacks and Hispanics. If you have half a brain (questionable these days) you can read between the lines: “Sure”, Biden says, “You may have benefited. But you benefited from Donald Trump, and we just can’t have that. The only way minorities are allowed to benefit in this country is when the Democratic Party can lay claim to it.”
So I ask you, fellow Americans, when the COVID-19 era passes, do you want to retool America with a hard spoonful of socialism….or is going with the man who ushered in unprecedented economic gains the way to go?
