The important purpose of winning an election for Democrats is to win control. Control of the government? What do they have in mind that is so different than what Republicans want? Of course both parties want control, but Democrats want control of the purse strings. They want to funnel taxpayer money to causes that will support Democrat aims, which is mostly more control. Republicans, on the other hand, want more freedom. What Republicans have in mind is usually removing regulations, removing the heavy hand of government so the American people will have more freedom to grow and prosper. Free people will invent new businesses, get rich, and the economy will blossom. Democrats basically regard “the Rich” as the enemy, and want to take their wealth away to give to the less fortunate. AOC just made up a bunch of tee shirts which she is selling for I think it was $58 each, that say “Tax the Rich”. Democrats admire her for being outspoken and for “the squad” who also try to be outspoken. Republicans are generally amused by her ignorance.

In the old country (mostly England, but Europe too) young people were stuck in their family’s class. If The family raised sheep, or cabbages, their offspring could expect to raise sheep or cabbages, rather than hold office or enter a profession. There was a reason why so many were willing to cross a vast ocean to populate a new world. Class was important, and you didn’t get to step out of it. The miracle of America was the opportunity to rise, to be what you were willing to work hard to become.

Democrats, consumed with their right to be in control, expect to improve society by taxing away more of the money of the rich and giving it to the poor to improve their lot. It is not just taxes, of course, but regulations. To quote The Hill today, “president -elect Joe Biden is building a team of seasoned government professionals who can help him embark on an aggressive regulatory agenda once he takes office. “

Biden has already drawn in experts with deep government and regulatory backgrounds to head some of his agencies. Many of those who will serve in his White House or Broader administration have worked in multiple previous administrations. You thought it was all about Trump’s tweets, didn’t you?

“They will have a heavy workload. Under the Trump administration, various departments have rolled back a suite of environmental laws, set up barriers to immigration and weakened a host of discrimination protections at various agencies. “

“Democrats are pushing Biden to waste no time in beginning a regulatory process that can take years. Seton Motley, writing at Red State, wondered if anyone had considered that what he wants to do Constitutionally requires preceding legislation from the Legislative Branch. He added:

Speaking of Trump’s agenda:

The Trump Transition: Away from Enormous, Terrible, Top-Down Government
Trump Cuts 22 Regs for Every New One
Donald Trump Celebrates Record Success in Cutting Regulations

Oddly enough, enormous terrible top down government does not grow an economy nor help the people to prosper. Ten Reasons Trump Economy Is Best in Fifty Years
