It’s been 20 months since Democrats took control of Washington, DC, and America should ask, are we any better off than we were two years ago? On Friday, September 23, the GOP announced a plan to inform Americans how they will govern if voters give them the reigns of the House in six weeks. The plan addresses fixes for policy failures by Democrats.
Once again, the Left doesn’t have a legitimate response to common sense ideas, so the Democrats did what they do best – instead of countering with a plan of their own, they went on the attack criticizing the GOP plan as “extreme.” The question is, will enough Americans hear the Republican ideas to overcome the Democratic and media dog whistle campaign against them?
Common Sense GOP Plan Offers Conservative Counter To Failed Leftist Policies
Over the last year, the House GOP worked together to develop a plan to counter the destructive policies of the Democratic-led House and Senate. There is no way around it — the Left is responsible for inflation and the impending recession, runaway crime, illegal immigration, and an unaccountable government.
So, what’s in the plan?
The House GOP said it promises to create an “economy that’s strong,” “a nation that’s safe,” “a future that’s built on freedom,” and “a government that’s accountable.”
Now, I ask you, why is this extreme?
Absolutely nothing. For America to thrive, it needs several things:
- A flourishing economy empowers citizens who want to take a risk and participate in it through equal opportunity — without a guarantee of “equity” (which stands for equal outcomes which are impossible to ensure without the power of the government, which is still unable to guarantee it).
- For people to feel safe. Politicians must allow police to do their jobs, and the government must respect the Second Amendment. Along the southern border, the Biden administration is allowing 8,000 illegal immigrants to cross the border unfettered every day. The illegal migrants have killed people’s dogs for food, broken into their homes, and destroyed businesses. The federal government must secure the border for the security of citizens.
- A less restrictive government. We learned through COVID that power-hungry governors would do anything they could get away with. Just as concerning, Democrats are openly saying the government has more rights to children than parents. Schools are pushing Critical Race Theory on children. The New Green Deal policies enshrined in the “Inflation Reduction Act” will give the government more power over the private sector and flush more resources out of the energy sector. That could result in restrictions on your ability to travel, conduct business, or enjoy the comforts of your home.
- Instead of spending less, Democrats want to take more of your money from you to pay for a more expansive government. The supposed “Inflation Reduction Act” empowers the IRS to hire 87,000 employees to target middle and working-class Americans. In addition, while the Federal Reserve fights inflation by increasing interest rates, which makes it more expensive to buy a home or car or use a credit card, the government continues to spend recklessly, negating the efforts by the Fed to cool inflation.
Biden, Pelosi, and Democrats Go On the Attack – What’s at Stake?
As usual, Biden weaponized the public education system against voters. He tried making the case again that the Supreme Court’s conservative majority stripped women of their abortion rights. No such thing happened. There is a much-needed lesson in civics on this issue and virtually every other one for that matter.
The bottom line is this… When you hear the Left talk about supposed rights being stripped by Republicans. One side is following the Constitution and the other is not. It’s that simple. It’s the only way Democrats can achieve their far-left policy objectives. The Tenth Amendment makes it very clear. The federal government is not supposed to ensure rights not granted in the Constitution. Did you know seven of the ten Bill of Rights tell the government what it can’t do? For example, the federal government cannot prohibit:
- Freedom of religion
- Freedom of expression
- Freedom of the press
It can’t arrest you without a cause, and it can’t strip you of due process rights. It goes on and on. I encourage you to take the time one day and familiarize yourself with the Constitution. It’s the weapon against their insanity. It’s bulletproof and can’t be refuted. Yet, if the Left gets its way, it can be undermined, discredited, and ultimately cast aside.
That’s what’s at stake.
When Democrats don’t like a Supreme Court ruling, it’s not because of the Constitution. It’s despite it.
The founding fathers warned this day was coming. They said for our system of government to work, we needed to know, understand, and follow the Constitution to protect it. Americans have not done that; in turn, we’ve elected people who don’t value the founding document.
The nation is more divided than ever under President Joe Biden. In August, he executed a divisive midterm campaign strategy. He attacked so-called “MAGA” Republicans as extremists and got his base to chime along. He’s called Republicans racist, semi-fascist, and a threat to American democracy.
Yet, ask yourself, why all the radical language? Who’s asking America to uphold the Constitution — Liberals or conservatives?
The answer may be more evident than you know.
