Watching Democrats at the SOTU on Tuesday night was surreal. I wonder what they are so unhappy about. Is it the low unemployment among black Americans and latino Americans? Is it the lowering of taxes for Americans across the board, and yes even rich Americans. These folks are job producers after all. I ask you, how many poor people have you worked for? Every employer that has written a check to me as a salary has been a wealthy employer. One that benefits from tax cuts and then invests those cuts back into their businesses, or they travel, therefore waiters, hotels, airlines and car rentals indirectly benefit.
I don’t recognize this country, we should celebrate every victory regardless of who the President is. Unfortunately, during that past 8 years we saw a severe decline in America. We saw jobs leave our country in droves. We, for the first time lost our credit grading for Pete’s sake. We bought into the rich-hating environment, while the very people who infused the hatred of rich, gathered and ate lobster and caviar, even in the White House. Do as I say not as I do seemed to be the law of the land, and to some extent still is. Quite hypocritical.
On Tuesday, as the President introduced Americans with real life stories of heroism and loss, the democrats sat on their hands with scowls, frowns and growls, making Americans across the land wonder, why are they so unhappy? They should be proud, instead, they sat in their seats stone-faced, silently wallowing in their misery. They never expected this man to win. They wanted to continue to see American decline. Because as America declines, their power increases, and after all that is what their positions are all about.
I have four adult-children. Each of them working their way through school, and trying to support themselves. They are professional in their work places, and supportive amazing kids. They have dreams for their future, and I want to inspire them to dream. I want their country of birth to continue to be a beacon of opportunity. Where their dreams can come true, and if they fail, they can dust themselves off and start again.
