Only two weeks remain before the final vote takes place in a potential transformative election. It is an election matching two candidates with diametrically opposing approaches to government. President Donald Trump built a highly successful, booming economy on the “Reaganomics” theory of low taxes and few regulations. The Republican approach believes in smaller government and more individual freedom. This type of mindset encourages responsibility and encourages entrepreneurship under an atmosphere of less government interference. Countless small businesses, including many minority-owned ones, were successfully started under such a business-friendly environment. Until the coronavirus pandemic, Trump’s philosophy seemed to be working and unemployment was at an all-time low. The Democratic philosophy, on the other hand, believes in big government, high taxes and excessive regulation. Under the Obama/Biden administration this philosophy was responsible for sending hundreds of thousands of jobs overseas and closed thousands of factories in the U.S. American businesses can’t compete when they are heavily taxed and burdened with heavy regulations and restrictions that are not shared by other nations. Many manufacturing jobs returned to the U.S. under President Trump but could flee once again under a Biden administration. If a President Biden is coerced into passing the socialist programs of Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, taxes will necessarily be raised significantly on ALL Americans. There is NO free lunch and not enough “wealthy” to pay for all the “freebies” promised under socialist ideology. All of us will be taxed in some form to pay for the “free health care”, “free college” and other promises. As British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said, “Socialism sounds good until you run out of other people’s money.”
After 47 years in Washington Joe Biden is most known for the two Crime Bills that he co-authored. The 1994 Crime Bill under President Bill Clinton was responsible for incarcerating countless black men and created a generation of fatherless families. Joe Biden believes he can count on the black vote but he had a reputation in the Senate of befriending segregationists and spoke at the funeral of West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd who was a prominent member of the Klu Klux Klan. Biden also opposed school bussing for the sole purpose of school integration. Today he continues to refute the idea of charter schools and school vouchers that would offer better educational opportunities for poor and minority students. The Democratic Party has advertised Biden as a friend of minorities but an examination of his actions tells a completely different story. The media continues to paint President Trump as a racist when his actions have benefited the minority community more than the previous 8 years of the Obama administration. The media wants to sell Biden as someone who will “unite” the nation when his campaign speeches suggest otherwise. If the Democrats capture both Houses of Congress and the White House, I believe there will be retribution led by Pelosi, Schumer and Kamala Harris. Now we are beginning to see revelations about how he abused his office to obtain favored jobs for his son. The newfound wealth of the Biden family begs for an investigation. It is no surprise that China is wanting Biden to win the November 3 election. Joe Biden will be compromised in any dealings with China and probably Russia as well. It is certain that China owns Joe Biden and can command “favored” status in a Biden administration. Joe Biden is indeed a “flawed” candidate.
