Wipe out

Many Democrats are celebrating tonight and they should as America has turned toward the socialist state where we take from the people who earn and give to those who do not. The results are in and most house seats were won by those who are the takers not the producers.

What an insult where those who don’t earn anything, want to take from those who earn something by their hard work, then it is taken from them as taxes and then given to those who vote themselves more benefits. What has our country become? Must we work hard so the government can take it from me and give what I earn to others who do not work at all?

Some say we must help those in need, but why don’t they get a job? There are more jobs than people available to work, but why work when you get more money by not working from the government? For a few minutes I thought that America would remember what made our country great but I guess I was wrong.

The good news is that most of us here in Mesquite have lived at the high point of America and it may be gone as it slides back into mediocracy. Will the once shining light for the world become a dim bulb of its former self?  We have a great President who could lead the way back, but those short sighted people that just want free stuff have flipped the switch toward off.

Somehow people have not recognized the job creation and only want more free stuff. But that was predicted for all democracys that once people realize that they could vote themselves free stuff that they did not have to work for was the beginning of the end. Some thought that America was different but I guess they were wrong, will the swamp swallow all?

With the win of Donald Trump many thought that we were on a road back but it appears the swamp was stronger and had more appeal. When you think of the new people in charge you must wonder how much longer we have. Not much longer I think.

Tonight I am sad not for myself but for the children who will live with the result of the death of the American dream, but then they can get free stuff as long as someone is stupid enough to work their butt off to give it to others. The people have chosen mobs over jobs, investigations over progress, and giveaways over earning it.

    The bible says, “The meek shall inherit the earth”, It appears to be coming true in America. Working hard to keep ahead of the Jones’ is no longer a dream here. As we become weaker and weaker, always depending on others to take care of ourselves, I just wonder who our future leaders will be. And it scares the hell out of me.

      My opinion, not the opinion of the Mesquite Local News:

      I personally see two years of BOTH parties wasting all of our money on investigations, they’re talking about it already. It’s the top agenda so be prepared. America spoke and we have placed ourselves in a stale mate position and we, THE PEOPLE, will pay for it. I’m hoping that Trump will QUIETLY continue on with his Presidency and most of his goals; this may reel his tweets in a bit (they’re stupid and get him in a lot of trouble). I’m hoping that the parties will work well together and compromise on issues that will benefit us all but we all know that’s not going to happen…it will be a bloody battle for the next two years that really has NOTHING to do with the people and EVERYTHING to do with the politicians but WE THE PEOPLE WILL PAY FOR IT ALL…so sad that we have all become so black and white…no more gray; at least not for the next two years. So many beautiful shades of gray but not one politician will want to see them. It’s going to be for them or them, it’s not going to be for US.

      • I feel your pain Teri but we will get through this.
        Silver lining is Ginsburg is bailing out..due to illness (cancer) January 2019.
        R- held the senate and D- got the house
        Dems new… that why Kavanaugh thing was so messy
        Trump picks another Supreme Court Justice for Liberty and the People.
        About his tweets.. let him “keep on coming on” as they set up his next move and keep his adversaries guessing.

    • David Petrillo says:

      Your whole argument is nonsense. Democrats work as hard or harder than any conservative. They pay more taxes than people like Trump. Bezos, Speyer, Bloomberg, and other liberals are the definition of an entrepreneur. Nice try, but you are just buying into the big lie. The era of the “white nationalist” is almost over.

    Oh please. Do you really believe this “ death of an American dream “ “ more free stuff” Do you not think Democratic voters pay taxes? What happened last night is that the country swung back a little. From all I have studied this in somewhat normal in a mid term. Citizens of the USA have the right to vote as they see fit, instead of being melodramatic and carrying on with the hyperbole “ death of a nation” stuff why not try to empathize and understand why their future view of America is different than yours. Maybe in the middle we find an America we can all live in.

  3. I respect your opinion Mike.

    However, the $21 Trillion and rising debt atrocity is owned by both parties. Maybe it’s time we stop the party nonsense and throw out incumbent Republicans and Democrats who have failed this country for years.

    The Republican and Democrat parties are private nonprofit businesses only interested in maintaining their power and wealth.

    Label them fascists, socialists or whatever you choose. They are laughing all the way to the bank and saddling us with the bill.

    • I agree with you Mark,
      But would like to point out that the $21 trillion debt has been stable for how many years now?
      Just like the 11 million illegal’s in this country since before I was woke. (now 30 mil but that is suspect too}
      And cancer is gonna get a cure … just keep donating since I was a kid 50 years ago.
      National debt, Last I checked more like 60 trillion but I stopped looking 5 years ago.

  4. Couldn’t have said it better myself Mike, but I’m afraid they just won’t get it.
    Keep up the good fight and reach to the youth in our brainwashed educational system if you can.
