Let’s do a comparison of what the country looked like when the MAGA policies were in effect and compare those with the current Build Back America Better (BBAB) Socialist policies.
MAGA had inflation at 1.4%, gasoline cost $2.50 a gallon, and the country was energy independent. Retirement plans and 401K programs were at their highest levels ever and growing at 10% to 15% annually. The economy was growing at 3%. The border was under control. Crime was low. The illegal drugs coming over the boarder were being addressed. Schools were not teaching that white people were oppressors and black people were victims. Black people had their highest employment rate ever. Jobs were coming back to America and more Americans were working. Home mortgage interest rates were in the 3% level. People were not losing their jobs just because they did not agree with Socialist policies. A COVID19 vaccine was developed in record time.
ISIS was destroyed. There was an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan in progress. Not one American in Afghanistan was killed during the last 18 months under MAGA. Russia was under control, and they did not try to take any more land after they took Crimea under the Obama/Biden administration. Iran was isolated. North Korea did not fire a single missile or conduct any tests. China was under control with tariffs.
Now let’s look at what the Democrat BBAB Socialist policies have done to America in just 19 months.
Inflation is at 8.5% and rising. The costs of gasoline is over $6 in many places. We are no longer energy independent and must buy it from countries that are hostile to America. America is a third world country with brown outs. The energy we buy is dirty. Retirement plans and 401K funds have dropped about 30%. That is a 40% difference from where it should be. Many retirees are having to go back to work. The economy has shrunk in the last two quarters which is a recession. The border is out of control. Four million people have entered the country illegally. Crime is very high. Illegal drugs are flowing over the border. Schools are teaching racist theories and inappropriate sex to children below the 3rd grade. The teachers’ unions have put our children two years behind where they should be. Fewer Americans are working. Mortgage rates are about 7% and will probably reach 10% soon. That will destroy the housing market. The government has been weaponized. Anyone who disagrees with their policies will be attacked and ruined.
ISIS is growing again. The Afghan withdrawal was a disaster killing 13 Americans. We left behind thousands of people who helped us and are now being murdered. Russia has attacked Ukraine because they sense a weak American government. Iran is moving toward obtaining a nuclear weapon. North Korea has started testing and firing missiles again. China is threatening Taiwan.
To put the record straight, even though they keep calling conservatives racists, Democrats created Jim Crow laws, segregated schools, started the KKK, and were the ones lynching Blacks. It was Republicans that passed the Civil Rights act. Democrats want unrestricted abortion right up to the moment of birth.
