A question for my fellow Americans:
Why aren’t you blaming the Democrats?
 
• Democrats run higher education, where costs soar and value plummets. SO WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run most large cities, where violent crime rates are off the charts. So when young people needlessly die in the streets, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats took over our healthcare system, resulting in skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, with far fewer choices. SO WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• More people are being killed in the name of one religion than all other religions on the planet combined, but Democrats attack anyone calling on that religion to clean up its act. So every time people are killed in the name of that religion, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats demand higher minimum wages, thus lowering youth employment and increasing automation. So every time you see a touch screen instead of an employee, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run green energy, which costs thousands of percent more in tax subsidies to produce the same amount of energy. So when money is missing for roads or bridges or children or veterans, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run Hollywood, so when ticket prices rise for one-sided sermons masquerading as movies, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
I could go on, but my point is simple: Whatever Democrats run inevitably makes lives worse. Violence increases. Prices soar. Racism deepens. Choices drop. Safety falls. Decency evaporates. Hate rages on campuses. Free speech is bullied.
 
So, my fellow Americans, why—oh why—AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS????

Dana Loesch says the left uses their media to assassinate real news, and their entertainers to repeat the false narrative over and over again. The only way to save our country and our freedom from their lies is to fight the violence with the clenched fist of truth. The National Rifle Association of America is Freedom’s Safest Place.

 

Growth Can Solve the Debt Dilemma

Hitting a 3% target would result in an economy that’s nearly $13 trillion larger in 30 years.

By Stephen Moore
The Congressional Budget Office’s latest report on the nation’s fiscal future is full of doom and gloom. The national debt will double in the next 30 years to 150% of gross domestic product—which is Greece territory. Interest payments may become the largest budget line, eclipsing national defense. Federal spending is expected to soar over 20 years from 22% of GDP to 28%. Never outside of wartime has Washington’s burden been so heavy on the economy.
 
But the report’s most troubling forecast, by far, is for decades of sluggish economic growth. The CBO projects that America will limp along at an average 1.9% annual growth over the next 30 years. This is a sharp downgrade from historical performance. Between 1974 and 2001, average growth was 3.3%. An extra percentage point makes a world of difference. If weak growth persists, there is almost no combination of plausible spending cuts and tax increases that will get Washington anywhere near a balanced budget.
 
But consider what happens to the CBO’s numbers assuming 3% annual growth. By 2040 the economy would expand not to $29.9 trillion, but to $38.3 trillion, according to an analysis by Research Affiliates, a California investment firm. That’s an additional output of $8.4 trillion—roughly the entire annual production today of every state west of the Mississippi River.

Disrupting the Disrupters

(The following is not official GOP guidance, but rather my ideas on handling some difficult situations)

Many Republicans fear Democrat protesters. It’s understandable.  Organized and militant, these bullies follow a detailed, national plan (here’s their playbook), disrupting town hall meetings and other venues.  Thus, exhausted Republicans see mobs shouting.  They see human blockades.  They see demonstrations on TV, overwhelmed blogs, and their own frightened supporters losing hope.

But I see something else, which is…

…OPPORTUNITY.

Yes, I see great opportunity!  Rampaging riots, shrieking college students, spoiled Hollywood and sports icons sermonizing on TV—these Trump haters are ideal bad guys, provided we follow two simple rules:

1) Don’t make them look good.  2)  Do make ourselves look good.

So how do we manage this?  It depends on the setting.

Setting 1:  Town Hall Meetings

If protesters flood a meeting, I’d follow these steps:

1.       Don’t make them into martyrs.  Protesters thrive on victimhood, so silencing them only empowers them.  Even if they must be removed, I wouldn’t rush it—I’d give them a few moments to be bad guys.  Letting them interrupt everyone’s good time, I’d be the good guy by restoring that good time.

For many of us, this feels unnatural, right?  We’re used to avoiding vicious people, not using them as props.  But hey, when opportunity knocks, I answer the door.

Why you should vote for me.

For 17 months, I’ve traveled this country and met countless Americans from every walk of life. Your hopes have become my hopes and your dreams have become my dreams.

I’ve been inspired on this journey by the millions of you who came to cheer a simple idea: that we can make America great again.

Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing job-killing Obamacare — Americans are experiencing soaring double-digit premium hikes, insurers are leaving, doctors are quitting, jobs are fleeing, and deductibles are through the roof.

It also means immediately fixing our terrible trade deals, which have killed American jobs and crushed American incomes. This means renegotiating Bill and Hillary Clinton’s disastrous NAFTA and China deals that have deindustrialized the United States — importing unemployment and exporting our wealth.

It means we don’t have to keep kids trapped in failing schools — that we can give every parent the right to send their kids to the school of their choice, including millions of low-income African-American and Hispanic children who have been failed for generations by Democratic politicians like Hillary Clinton.
