What a Strange and Vicious Election Campaign! by The Elephant's Child
The same Democrats who accuse Trump of all sorts of hate and demagoguery are the exact same Democrats who told black people that that Mitt Romney and the abolitionist Republican party were going to re-enslave them. And that John McCain was a racist, white supremacist, bloodthirsty war-monger who was cheating on his wife. “Progressive” Democrats are not the solution to our problems, they are the problem.

This is certainly the strangest election of my lifetime. For the last four years the politics have been vicious. The Democrats expected to win the last election with Hillary Clinton. They had counted on winning with the first woman president, and they had no idea how unpopular Hillary was. They carefully planted “evidence” of some kind of collusion between Donald  Trump and the Russians, that they were sure would sink his candidacy.  Didn’t work. Trump won. Perhaps there is some case in the past of the losing party behaving so badly, but I’m unaware of it, and I thought I had a fairly good grasp of history.

Think back over the last four years. Before “Black Lives Matter” and before the riots and statue toppling. Donald Trump was attacked viciously from day one. He has been prominent for years, as a TV personality, as a builder, and simply as a personality in New York. Democrats reacted with fury. I’ve lived under quite a few presidents (don’t ask) and political partisans may not like the president of the opposing party, but I have never, never seen such viciousness.

Donald Trump is not one to suffer quietly under attack, nor to wait quietly for someone else to defend him. He responds. And he has found Twitter an easy way to respond. Some people object. UN-PRESIDENTIAL!! Presidents should be former generals, or sons of presidents, or a prominent governor, or, or. Just not. He has done a remarkable lot for the American people. And now Nancy Pelosi is trying desperately to find a way to declare the president so unfit from his bout with the Covid-19 virus that he is somehow incapable of performing the duties of the presidency adequately.

So what about Joe Biden? We know he was Barack Obama’s vice president, but we, as usual, don’t know much about vice presidents do. They own the record of the president they serve. So what’s the record of the Obama administration? Read it and weep.

Look at those carefully. Cost of living way up, federal debt way up,  unemployment way up, median family income way down. That’s not partisan politics, but just what their policies produced.

Democrat efforts to blame Trump for all the deaths from Covid -19 were a complete failure. His reaction to the news from Washington State of the deaths of residents and staff in the nursing home visited by someone from Wuhan, China was prompt and decisive. He banned all flights from China to vast outcry from the Democrats who loudly accused the president of racism, attacks on Asian people, because they were a different color, that sort of thing. Democrats belive in “Global Warming” and the end of the Earth in the near future, probably  because they have never bothered to study up on the science, and they fall for anything that seems as if it might be useful.

Because petroleum scientists have discovered a better way to find natural gas and extract it, we are no longer dependent on oil and gas from the Middle East, and we have plentiful supplies. Gas prices are the lowest in years, hovering mostly only slightly over $2 for a gallon of regular. The highest gas prices are found in California. Biden wants to ban Fracking, the very technology that has made us energy independent. The cost of energy percolates through everything we buy or do.

The “Green New Deal” advocated by AOC, would be a disaster for the economy, and accomplish nothing whatsoever for the climate. Joe Biden was eager to sign on, which is frighteing. Carbon Dioxide is a natural fertilizer for plants, and makes crops grow better. It is not the control knob for the climate, which has been changing for centuries and probably will continue to do so. We have had ice ages and warm periods, and the warm years are nicer. The climate seems to be controlled by the action of the sun. If you study up, you won’t fall for the climate catastrophists.

Donald Trump is doing a remarkably good job. He understands what he is doing, and how his policies will work to improve the lives of Americans.  And they are working.
