by Wayne Simmes: Most honest people would agree that they are indeed better off today than when President Donald Trump took office. But nobody has ever accused a Democrat of being honest. They believe the old adage that if you tell a lie long enough and loud enough, somebody is bound to believe you.
Nancy Pelosi has never recanted her statement that what the common person received from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act were crumbs. And just this morning I heard a Democrat shill, say that the tax cuts were only good for the upper 1% of the population. The sad part was that the Fox News reporter failed to even try to correct that outright lie.
The latest unemployment number stands at 3.7% which is the lowest it has been since 1969. Part of that is because, minority unemployment including black and Hispanic people, is the lowest it has been in the history of our country. There are more jobs today than there are people out of work to fill those jobs.
Amazon just raised it’s minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour up from $11.40. They did not do that out of the kindness of their hearts. They felt they had to raise the pay rate in order to attract qualified people to their company. More than likely other companies will have to raise their minimum wage to be able to compete.
We have fewer people on welfare and food stamps than we have had in decades. That did not happen just because poor people decided to quit eating. That number happened because more people were able to find meaningful employment.
Manufacturing jobs that former President Barack Obama said would never come back to the United States are returning to our country in droves. Those are high paying jobs that make all other industries need to reevaluate their pay structures in order to compete. Instead of government mandating a rise in the minimum wage, the marketplace is now working as it is intended to work.
You have the opportunity on November 6th to either keep this booming economy going or to vote for Democrats that will undo all the good Donald Trump has done. It is my hope that when you go into that booth, that you ask yourself, am I better off than I was two years ago. If your answer is yes do not vote for a Democrat.
If the Democrats win back the house they have promised to not only try and impeach the President but some have even suggested impeaching the Vice President as well. We cannot allow them to overturn the results of a lawful election. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for tyranny.
