Yeah, right.

Great economy
Historically low unemployment
Great stock markets
Low Energy prices
Great housing markets
Lower taxes
Less regulations
Trying to secure the border
Consumer confidence at an all time high
More disposable income
Low inflation

Don't mess with all that by electing a Social Engineering Democrat in 2020.

Republicans have put our country on a path of warp-speed decline

Looking outward, over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party, I can see how some may hold this sentiment!

It seems the Baby Boomer generation will be getting screwed if the Democrats have their way. If I wanted to send my children to pre-school and college, I had to pay for it myself. Now I pay for EEE through my tax dollars. The taxpayers fund education for another 18 years and now they want us to pay for college educations also. I have my own health insurance, which I am very happy with but the Democrats want to take that away from me and force me to pay for the whole Countries, including illegals. Sounds like something I should be jumping up for joy about.

Republicans are trying to copy Iran, only with the Bible as the supreme law of the land instead of the Koran.

Conservatives are so anti-Islam but they want the EXACT same type of society.

The Green New Deal is supported by 81 percent of registered voters, but, Republicans tell us, Americans just aren’t as smart as Norwegians (who have 60 percent of all car sales electric now and will totally phase out gas and diesel cars in eight years) or Germans (who produced more than 100percent of the electricity their country needed a few days last year from renewable sources). We have to keep digging coal and drilling for oil and gas, polluting the planet, causing tens of thousands of cancers, and destroying the biosphere, because, after all, we wouldn’t want to cut the revenue to a vital industry, would we?

Agree. It's in the numbers. The GOP is losing women and young voters. Americans are waking up and leaving faster than under any GOP administration.

And now the GOP is led by the most brazen con man to ever take up residence in DC.

Karma will catch up to them.

Read an article today about the GOP paradise in Florida where the Sewer systems are expelling literally BILLIONS of gallons into the rivers, gulf and bays. They have zero intention of fixing it. Why? Because people don't want higher sewer fees...according to "them".

And so we will have algae blooms, no fishing and completely ruination of the water-world.

DeSantis said that we should fix the environment in Florida. Notice the word "said". He then just finished the legislative session where ZERO was done. Nothing. Well, they spent a few million on experts...you know how that goes.

It doesn't take too many experts to conclude that dumping poo in the water makes it full of poo. But, apparently, they need a decade or two to study it.

When asked if he should slow or stop development until Florida gets a handle on this pollution, traffic and other major problems (crimes, vehicle and pedestrian deaths, poor health care, etc.) he said "there is no need to slow development. We can have it all....".....except we can't.

This is the new "progressive" Republican. They look at Trump lie and figure "hey, he gets away with it - I'll just say things...and then not do them".

Meanwhile, he goes against the will of the people in voting rights, etc - trying to squeeze just one more election cycle out before he lets too many of the wrong people vote.

IMHO, these people are criminals. The country has went from "we" to "me" (me, being the developers, corporations, billionaire, etc.)....
