Mexico: Trump’s Taking Our Jobs!!!

Where’s that Whaaaaaaambulance when you need it? Cry me a river, Mexico! The time to start aggressively putting our country first instead of making sure every other country and nation is feeling that Big Warm Fuzzy should have come way before now. This is why Trump won and why Trump will obliterate what is left of the democratic party: He cares about our country, he loves the American people, and he’s putting the U.S. first.

Mexico Losing Jobs to America

Major Media Ignoring Democrat Loses

From 2008 – 2016 democrats lost 1,042 state seats. Yet major media is silent about major loses in state legislatures. Why isn’t major media addressing democrats getting their asses handed to them for the past eight years?

Worse then losing 1,042 seats and not saying a thing, liberal media ask why Hillary lost the election? On November 9th, 2016 liberal media licked its wounds and wondered what happened. All Hillary Clinton had to do was address the issues, which the democrats refused to do.

Why Have Democrats Lost Ground

Let’s look at some of the issues that have cost democrats so many seats across the nation. Since major media will not address the issue, we will.

Most Insane Election Prediction Ever

Video is an excellent example of how of touch polls and major media is with the American public.  The truth is, the results were just opposite of the predictions.

Why was major media so wrong about the election? Maybe because they believed their own lies.  Then major media wonders why Hillary Clinton lost?  Maybe, just maybe, major media was feeding the public lies in an attempt to convince voters there was no chance trump would win?  Who wants to vote for a loser?  Rather than reporting fair and balanced news,

Why We Need Tariffs

There has been a lot of bad information going around various news sites talking about how bad tariffs are. It appears that protectionism is now a bad word.

Do people not know their history? At one time tariffs were a main source of tax revenue. We had roads, public service, military, a working government, everything the nation needed.

Then came along the income tax. Several decades later the terrible idea of free trade was signed into law by Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton is not to blame. Free trade started with Richard Nixon and has continued through every president since.

Why The Working Class Votes Against Their Best Interest

There is an article on the Washington Post written by Catherine Rampell where she asks,

Why did all those Economically Anxious™ Trump voters reject policies that would have helped relieve their economic anxiety?

Maybe they believed any Big Government expansions would disproportionately go to the “wrong” kinds of people — that is, people unlike themselves.

Right off the bat, the article hints at racism by using the words “people unlike themselves.” Please stop with the racist overtones. The “them and us” mindset serves no purpose, other than continuing the divide among people.

Daily Reminder Why Trump Won

Daily reminder of why Donald Trump won: Because he addressed the issues working middle class people want to talk about.

He addressed free trade.

He addressed putting people back to work.

He addressed offshore tax havens.

Next time a democrat talks about how Trump won because of racism, ask them a few simple questions. What was Hillarys stance on Free Trade? What was she going to do to rebuild the rust belt?

Free Trade And Local Taxation

Something that is not addressed very much is the effects of free trade on local taxes.

Let’s say the local budget is $1. Out of that $1 a local factory pays 35 percents or 35 cents.

After Bill Clinton signed NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), the local factory decides it wants to move to Mexico to exploit cheap labor. The factory is moved, employees are laid off, and the building is demolished. With no building the local tax rate goes from 35% to 1%.

Who do you think makes up the lost revenue of 34%? Usually it will be the people, as all the other factories are packing up and moving south of the border.

Have you wondered why your state sales tax, state income tax, property tax, school taxes.. are so high? It is because local officials are trying to make up for lost revenue. That lost revenue is from factories leaving the good ole USA.
