For years, conservatives have been begging business owners to jump into the political scene to slow the rampant spending of our federal government. They got what they asked for in GOP nominee Donald Trump — and then some.
“Politicians have used you and stolen your votes. They have given you nothing,” Trump told a North Dakota crowd, according to Politico. “I will give you everything. I will give you what you’ve been looking for for 50 years. I’m the only one.”
While it’s a rather vague — and perhaps, to small government conservatives, terrifying — promise, if Trump can do anything to America like what he’s accomplished in his real estate empire, I think we’ll turn out just fine.
“It comes down to wealth versus poverty,” Trump said. “North Dakota shows how energy exportation creates shared prosperity, more funding for infrastructure … It’s a choice between sharing in this great energy wealth or sharing in the poverty promised by Hillary Clinton.
“We’re going to make America wealthy again,” he stated. “You have to be wealthy in order to be great, I’m sorry to say.”
That statement sent a resounding shockwave throughout the left, many of whom took it out of context by using only “You have to be wealthy in order to be great” to further bash Trump. Obviously, he was talking about countries, not individuals.
And frankly, he’s exactly right. How highly a nation is perceived in the world is mostly determined by the innovation and money its economy produces.
America wouldn’t be the “shining city on a hill” if it weren’t for our incredible free market system — and the government has effectively tried to squander that as much as possible over the last 60 years.
Hopefully the Republicans will gain a super-majority in November and we can undo all the damage caused by the Obama administration — and, of course, “make America wealthy again.”
