It’s a generally admitted theme in the political realm that We the (63 million) People vote with our wallets. Politicians, (particularly Democrats) run with other people’s wallets.
Last night in his first-ever Town Hall gathering, President Trump took the fight to Biden’s back yard and came off as reasonable but firm. Keeping what we have stable and growing after all, should override the desire to tank the economy and blame it on President Trump.
The general philosophy of Democrats per se, is that politicians want power, while voters want government ‘bennies’. That’s their tried and true formula. Provide government giveaways; get power.
To date, on the other hand, every candidate the Republican establishment has supported over the last half-century has talked about the ‘economy’. Some even have done something about it. It’s not the economy, it’s the Culture, stupid!
President Trump has had the courage to speak and act on cultural issues which will positively impact economic issues as well. The word ‘economy’ indicates a behavior not a thing. When our behaviors improve, our finances will, too. We import millions of foreign workers for instance (who are generally hostile to American culture) to satisfy the low-wage demands of the Chamber of Commerce and votes for the bureaucracy.
Perhaps if we didn’t kill tens of millions of our children before they were born maybe we wouldn’t be doing that. But I digress.
The Democrats are out and about with what might be termed their own ‘Trump Copy’ rallies and town halls, screaming and yelling angrily parroting doom and gloom that’ll get worse if Trump is not driven out of office. On the other side Trump’s town hall last night was just like his own super-duper chock-full rallies, themed and performed fully with an America on the rise and a future getting better and better.
We the (63 million) People aren’t going to vote for doom, gloom, more government and higher taxes no matter how many empty promises of ‘free stuff’ is offered. Trump rules!
Andrea Widburg, American Thinker: ‘Trump’s Fox News Town Hall showed Democrats the Scariest voter of All’ …
On Thursday night, President Trump participated in a Fox News town hall in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the city that Joe Biden frequently boasts about as his hometown. Pennsylvania, of course, was one of the pivotal states that, unexpectedly, gave the majority of its votes to Trump in the 2016 election.
During the town hall, one of the people who got the microphone was David Hines, the Director of Operations for the City of Pittston. Martha MacCallum described Hines as a “lifelong Democrat who crossed over and voted for Trump in 2016.”
David asked a substantive question about controlling the EPA’s excessive and punitive environmental regulations:
Everyone supports protecting the environment, but the EPA seems too focused on complex regulations, fines, fees, and lawsuits. What can you do to lead the EPA to focus more on proactive compliance instead of punitive enforcement to protect the environment?
Trump’s answer, boiled down to its essentials, was that he’s been cutting regulations at an unprecedented rate, all the while ensuring that the environment remains unharmed. As he charmingly said, “I want to have the cleanest air on the planet. I want to have the most crystal-clear, beautiful water on the planet.”[-]
[+] … Without a second’s thought, Hines said that he was going to vote for Trump again:
Hines: I’m focused on the economy and on regulation and deregulation, and I like what’s happened in the country in the last four years –
Trump: Thank you. Thank you.
Hines: — and am thankful for your efforts, Sir, and I hope we can continue.
David Hines knows what Trump has done and appreciates how helpful it’s been to his work (and, presumably, to his personal life). He’s a Trump supporter now, and he’s not going back.
The Democrats, looking at two candidates who have promised to raise taxes and increase government control over the economy, must be shaking in their boots.[end]

As the more sensible abandon ship, the hangers-on screech all the more loudly; sad to see, yet morbidly amusing. Let’s keep them in our prayers.
The more desperate they become, the volume of their screeching increases proportionally. They also know (or should realize), that their numbers are decreasing as time goes on. People don’t wallow in a world of hatred. You move on with your life, and find it much better than it was before.
You see, ‘it’s the economy, stupid’.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump, changing lives one person at a time – MAGA! KAG!
