Forgiving Student Loans

Biden wants to “forgive” student loans. But is that a good precedent — to establish that when you borrow money, you ultimately won’t have to pay it back? And what would this forgiveness cost the federal government, which is already swimming in its own debt? But that’s what Democratic government does — provide reckless giveaway government to curry favor with the electorate despite the consequences. Strong leadership here from Biden? I think not.

Trump As Leader

Trump decided way back in January to close our borders to all Chinese. It was an unpopular decision bound to get him a lot of flak, particularly from the Dems who could label the decisions with all kinds of xenophobic labels. Biden was one of those who disagreed with this unprecedented decision.

But that’s what a real leader does. If he or she thinks they are right, they make the decision and go ahead with it despite its unpopularity — because it was the right thing to do. They don’t back down because popular opinion doesn’t happen to agree with them. Instead, they make the decision and go ahead with it and are willing to take the heat. That’s what a real leader does. That’s what Trump did, and the result? Perhaps a million American lives saved because of this — according to Biden — “mistake.”

But I have to laugh at them — now the Dems are trying to blame Trump for the deaths in the pandemic. The Dems would have kept our borders open.

Democratic Party Platform

Democrats in Charge

If you want to see what it looks like with Democrats in charge, just look at Chicago or Baltimore or the larger cities in California or the decline of New York City.

In fact, city life is becoming increasingly dangerous and unappealing. If you live in one, consider leaving, particularly if it is run by Democrats. And the widespread attack on police means that city life is likely to implode. Get out while you are still breathing.

Left Wingers

Left wingers don’t admit that their approach leads to chaos in the streets. They want to blame Trump for their own behavior. Their riots are somehow his fault. They don’t get that if you remove the police as a necessary restraint in society, chaos will soon follow.

The truly scary idea is that we vote these people in and allow them to govern us. It is not inconceivable that the US would descend into a true dystopia. Imagine civil disorder and shootings everywhere, and supermarkets permanently empty or always chronically short of food.

Obama/Biden

Obama was surprising strong on the issue of fighting and decimating the Islamic terrorists, not just in running down bin Laden, but in the unprecedented number of  drone assassinations — we became the assassination nation, par excellence, under this Democrat president.

But his divisive and poorly conceived (the young refused to pay for the health insurance of the old) Obamacare program was a fiasco from the get-go and the wrong thing to do in the face of the economic collapse with its high unemployment, which really called for a large infrastructure program to get the country back to work.  Consequently, the economic recovery during his entire 2-terms in office was anemic at best, with consistently low GDP year after year.  The economy eventually did recovery in spite of, not because of, Obama.

As a left-wing ideologue, Obama was supremely unsuited to guide the country’s economy back to health, with his openly hostile attitude toward capitalism, profit-oriented corporations as well as investors.  Biden will be more of the same, should he be elected, just when the country needs someone who is pro-business.  Yet we are faced with the same problems that happened in 2008/9 — how to get a large number of unemployed people back to work quickly, and how to make a large number of businesses profitable again, particularly small businesses shuttered and hit so hard by this coronavirus.

Ironically, the same solution, a large infrastructure program, that presented itself in 2008/9 but was never pursued, is the solution to our economic woes today.  But will it be ignored again?
