Liberals desperate to replace Trump

The liberals have moved so far to the left that nothing matters except regaining the Oval Office. This hatred of President Trump is making it easier for him to be re-elected in 2020. Consider these contrasts between conservatives and liberals:

  • Free enterprise vs. socialism: America owes much of its unparalleled success to free enterprise. Socialism is a corrupt and failed system. Example: Venezuela has gone from the richest South American nation to the poorest.

  • Immigration enforcement vs. open borders: A wall will help protect our southern border and national security. Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi call it a “manufactured crisis,” but they refuse to visit the area.

  • Pro-life vs. pro-death: Conservatives fight for the unborn and don’t want federal funds paying for abortions. Liberals have gone beyond abortion to infanticide. They defend illegal immigrants but don’t object to the cruel destruction of fetuses.

  • Traditional marriage vs. same-sex “marriage:” We all come into the world with a biological father and mother. Thanks, President Obama, for supporting traditional marriage until you were up for re-election and your “thinking evolved.”

  • Health care competition vs. Medicare for all: If insurance companies are replaced with a single-payer system, health care will decline, waiting periods will increase and it will bankrupt America. It’s hard enough to make the VA work.

  • Common sense vs. the Green New Deal: The world has existed for millennia in spite of many dire predictions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others have no idea what they’re talking about and no plan to pay for such an outrageous scheme.

  • Higher education options vs. free college for all: Join the military and use the GI Bill. Attend an affordable technical school. Work your way through college and avoid a huge school loan. Abolish tenured professors and college costs will drop.

  • Support ICE vs. abolish ICE: This agency protects us from illegal aliens who cross our border and kill innocent Americans. Why not abolish some federal agencies and let the states handle education, housing, agriculture, commerce, etc.?

  • Anti-sanctuary cities vs. pro-sanctuary cities: Immigration laws need to be enforced. Any city or state that harbors illegal aliens should lose all federal funding and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Existing U.S. Supreme Court vs. 15-member court: Curiously, this wasn’t an issue until Hillary Clinton lost the election and President Trump appointed conservatives Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to this prestigious court.

  • Electoral college vs. popular vote: The electoral college gives all 50 states fair representation instead of favoring heavily populated areas like the Northeast and California. The wisdom of our founding fathers endures.

  • Current voting age vs. lower voting age: The current voting age is 18. Many 16-year-olds aren’t mature enough or informed enough to vote. Much like the popular vote argument, this is another Democratic ploy to win elections.

America has prospered primarily by adhering to conservative values and free enterprise. God-fearing, patriotic Americans won’t allow 243 years of success to be obliterated by a few misguided liberals seeking the presidency.
