I believe in the choices our Founding Fathers gave us – foremost among them is the choice to live a peaceful, successful life unencumbered by socialist dictates. But in the past year, we’ve seen a shameless effort to take that away from me—from us. We’ve seen the efforts of what might be described as the beginning of a Bolshevik revolution orchestrated by the progressive socialist wing of the Democratic Party and emboldened by the election of like-minded lawmakers and a disgracefully acquiescent administration.
Their first order of business, beginning moments after President Biden was inaugurated, was to shower us with a frenzy of accusations seemingly aimed at President Trump but obviously intended to silence we who champion independence rather than an all-powerful government.
Let’s compare Mr. Trump’s accomplishments during his term in office with the escapades of his successor. As AMAC News contributor Andrew Abbott summed it up in a report published last week, Mr. Biden “botched” the Afghanistan withdrawal, created a crisis at the border, triggered skyrocketing inflation, and established domestic policies that led to a crime wave. Oh, I almost forgot; he also tried to foist a socialist spending package of enormous, bank-breaking proportions that focused on progressive budget-busting giveaways.
President Trump, on the other hand, gave us the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, leaving Americans with more money in their pockets. He secured our southern borders. He negotiated international trade deals that focused on the needs of American workers. And, as for the COVID pandemic, he tore down regulatory barriers, making it possible to develop and distribute life-saving vaccines quickly and efficiently.
The uproar over President Trump’s dismissal of Mr. Biden’s victory in the 2020 Presidential Election was and is an issue that is debatable, at best. Consider the fact that President Biden now admits to one degree or another that elections in the U.S. can be rigged. Nonetheless, he’s the Commander-in-Chief now. Thus, the debate has turned into a comparison pitting the achievements – or embarrassments – of Mr. Biden versus the substantial legacy that President Trump left us.
The Left has fomented an avalanche of disgrace on President Trump. Why? Could it be the reason is they wish to downplay President Biden’s inability to control his reckless, thoughtless decisions? He may not be a bad man, but he has proven himself to be an irresponsible man, the leader of a political party hell-bent on establishing powerful, long-lasting control in order to permanently destroy our American way of life. Mr. Trump made our Mexican border secure; Mr. Biden opened the border. Was it ineptitude on his part, or was it the desire of his socialist puppet masters seeking to bolster an influx of new – illegal – voters in order to ensure a transition that would end our democracy as we know it and to replace it with authoritarian socialism?
Some time ago, on May 18, 2020, a reader by the name of Gerald J. Boyum wrote a letter to the editor of the Fillmore County Journal in Minnesota. I came across it while doing some research online back then and kept it because it made so much sense. This is what Mr. Boyum wrote:
“Why do Leftists hate America? America is a massive refutation of their utopian fantasy, universal equality. They compare America with their vision of a perfect country which has never existed. Rather than change their false theories, they lash out at America and conservatives, including Trump.
“If we consider a ‘perfect’ country, it is not hard to find problems in America: racial prejudice, economic exploitation, and inequality, greed, etc. However, countries do not exist in fantasyland; they exist in the real world. However, the world that surrounds us is not too idyllic. If we compare the US to its surroundings, America is the one that begins to resemble an idealized paradise. Otherwise, why do so many foreign nationals risk life and limb to get to America?”
