Can government save or fix the economy? Or do the busy-bodies in DC do more harm than good?
Folks, that is the primary question for this year’s election, and of the decade to come. Democrats have been on a mad, far-left spending spree for two years now, one which is threatening to bankrupt generations to come. This nonsense was fed by their fantasies about being the knights on white horses, trotting to the rescue of the masses (and no doubt to cheers of adulation in their Walter Mitty moments). But in the real world, the Dems have failed because their ideology is just plain wrong and a failure..
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 75% of Likely Voters prefer free markets over a government managed economy. Just 14% think a government managed economy is better while 11% are not sure.
If this election is about economic choice (free market vs government intervention) – the Dems lose. If this elections is a referendum on the President’s performance on the economy – the Dems lose. If this election is about support for Congress – the Dems lose.Â When 90% of the country disapproves of the current Democrat Congress and 75% of the people disagree with the fundamental approach of the Democrat party, what do sane people think is going to happen in November?
