If you’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention currently taking place in Philadelphia, then you should have a feeling swelling up from deep inside your body – a feeling of happiness and bliss. All is well in America! Everything is great, the economy is on track, and there are jobs galore. Wait, what?
The media and their political handlers have always tried to paint a rosy picture since the 2008 crisis began. They have engaged in a level of MOPE never seen before in our history and have thus been engaged in an unbelievable campaign of deception.
The everyday men and women of America know that the job market is in fact worse, not better. They know that the corruption that caused the 2008 economic crisis has not been dealt with, but in fact has increased. They know that the threat of terrorism is real and it needs to be dealt with, yet is being largely ignored by our current leaders.
If you watch the Democratic National Convention, in which Hillary Clinton is being crowned – err, I mean nominated – then you will be shaking your head in absolute disgust and confusion.
How can they be so delusional? How can they stand up there on stage and preach to the American people that they need to continue down this path of “prosperity”? Change, real change needs to happen and they seem utterly and completely ignorant of this hard fact.
Just to run through a few of the things that have been reported on TODAY ALONE:
Homeownership rates have crashed to their lowest levels since 1965.
The stock price of Ford is plummeting as they state that they “won’t see any growth” and that the auto industry in the United States has plateaued.
Additionally, the Atlanta FED has slashed Q2 GDP estimates to 1.5%, foreseeing a slower than expected growth.
Perhaps this is why so many Americans are in disagreement with the message that the Democrats, led by corrupt Hillary, are trying to ram down their throats. This isn’t up for debate, as nearly 2/3rds of Americans now say that the country is on the WRONG track.
This doesn’t bode well for Hillary, or her shrinking support. The corruption that surrounds her is one thing; the false message that her party is preaching to protect Obama’s legacy is another, and the final straw that is breaking their backs is Donald Trump – a strong, seasoned businessman that has real life experience and who doesn’t mind putting things bluntly, unlike the mass majority of politicians that surround him.
The time for change has come and the status quo is shaking in their boots. A revolution is on foot – the only question now that remains is, is it too late? Can America and the rest of the West turn itself around before this all comes crashing down on our heads, or will the hard choices that need to be made, be made and the journey towards real growth be adopted once again?
Only time will tell, but we can hope, even if the chances are slim.
