Can you imagine what our economy will look like in just a few years if the Democrats win in 2020?
It could be catastrophic…
That may sound overly dramatic, seeing as historically, not a lot changes when a new president takes office.
Honestly, for the past century, what truly changes from one president to another, is negligible…
Our system of government is imbued with safeguards against giving the President of the United States too much power and control over the population.
Never before has America faced a threat like the one it’s facing down now with the rise of socialism.
Here in the United States, “socialism” used to be just as dirty a word as communism…
But over the past 10 years, it’s started to take root. Maybe it’s because America has had so much success and prosperity that some people can’t handle it – they become overwhelmed with winning and start looking for reasons and ways to lose…
Or maybe it’s just that human beings have a tendency to want to be contrarian and go against the establishment – even when that establishment has created one of the wealthiest and freest nations on the planet.
Regardless of the reason, socialism is threatening to take hold in the heart of America and it could fundamentally change our country forever.
Socialism Done Right
Again, this may sound overly dramatic…
But every country that has tried socialism ends up in poverty, oppression, and eventually chaos – or worse, full-on communism.
This doesn’t stop the egotistical socialists from wanting to try it here in the US. Their famous argument is that “it just hasn’t been done right”.
No, the problem is that it HAS been done right in other countries– they just think they can change the outcome this time around.
Bernie may be the poster child for modern American socialism, but he’s not alone…
Lately, Elizabeth Warren has been giving him a run for his money.
Even though she’s never come right out and copped to being a socialist, the fact is that many of her policies are in the same vein as Bernie’s, which makes them just as dangerous.
Well, just a few days ago, Warren said in a tweet that she’s ready to put MILLIONS of Americans out of work on her FIRST day in office.
The tweet read: “On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands. And I will ban fracking—everywhere.”
You may not realize it, but fracking is a HUGE source of American employment.
In 2014, 2.7 million Americans were employed by fracking and all the surrounding support jobs like transport, storage, etc. that keep the oil moving.
By 2030, that number could be as big as 3.8 million…
And neither of these numbers include the natural gas industry.
Why Warren Is Way Off
Even more, listen to this snippet of a research report, “A 2016 Chamber of Commerce study projects that if the fracking revolution of the previous decade had not occurred, 4.3 million jobs would not have been created, the U.S. economy would be $500 billion smaller, and residential natural gas prices would be 28% higher.”
Fracking is responsible for making the United States the world’s top producer of oil – and Warren and her ilk want to put all of these jobs out to pasture?
That doesn’t seem like a good idea, does it?
America is now oil-independent…
And we need to keep it that way.
It’s a ridiculous idea and hopefully, people are starting to see just how crazy this whole Leftist movement is…
And why we need to avoid it any way we can.
