The Democrats Insist This Election Is About Trump by The Elephant's Child

Everything in the “news” today seems to be speculation about the mid-term elections. Nobody knows anything, including the polls. (recall last election)
The most interesting comment I have seen came from Mark Levin, who asked: “Aren’t you getting tired of being called Nazis?” Yes I am. See the previous post on the degradation and politicization of language.

No, Donald Trump is not a Nazi. To the extent to which he is “authoritarian,” that’s why we have presidents – to get things done. And he’s done a pretty impressive bunch of things: When President Trump was elected, Nov. 8th 2016, the DOW stood at 18,332 and has moved up to 26,964. During President Trump’s first year in office, 2017, the DOW has closed at new record all-time highs – 103 times.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 250,000 new jobs were created in October. More people are working in the US than ever before and unemployment is at 50 year lows. In Trump’s first two years, the economy has gained over 4.3 million jobs. If you recall, President Obama said that the economy could not grow at a rate greater than 2% – It was a new era and we just had to get used to it.

The Washington Examiner lists 289 accomplishments in just 20 months. All of which the Democrats hate. But the tax cuts and relief from burdensome regulations have left businesses free to expand, build, improve and hire. People get the courage to act on their ideas and dreams, and introduce new products. I guess that since these were done by the hated Trump, all are derided as evil or wrong, and would be instantly eliminated by the Democrats.

African-American, Hispanic, and Asian-American unemployment rates have reached record lows. Women’s unemployment is at the lowest rate in nearly 65 years.

For all that, President Trump has been called a Fascist, Nazi, Racist, Anti-Semite (his daughter, son in law, and their children are all Jewish), and until he was elected President – nobody ever called him a racist. It’s not just that the insults are misplaced, but that they are so dumb. There are true-believers in the horrors of Climate Change (think nutty Tom Steyer) who are sure that getting us out of the Paris Climate Accords means that the planet will die next month or something, but President Trump was right. It was simply a plan to transfer as much American money to Africa as possible, and the goal of “climate change” is not to keep the planet from warming, but to destroy Capitalism.

Do look at the long accomplishment list.  As they said, It’s 20 months of promise-keeping. Oddly, the Democrats, always right on top of things, have insisted that this mid-term election should be a referendum on Trump, even though he is not on the ballot.

ADDENDUM: I should add that the reason the Democrats have insisted that this election should be about Trump, is because they are sure that hating Trump and all his accomplishments is a universal belief amongst all  but the stupidest Deplorables, and because as David Gerlernter said “Have you noticed that the Democrats have no issues?” And they don’t – other than raising taxes promptly and eliminating all the other useful things Trump has done. They really and truly just don’t understand basic economics.
