With unemployment steadily declining and more people working in full time year-round jobs, household incomes in the United States rose last year, and the nation’s poverty rate declined to its lowest level in more than a decade according to new federal government data. The decline in poverty rates naturally declines as people work. People go to work when taxes are lowered, and government regulations are reduced. History has proven this rule to be as consistent as is the rule of gravity.
While all people know this to be true, why does the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) contingent always call for higher taxes and more regulation while at the same time claiming it is their goal to help the poor and lower the poverty rate. Their stated goal is inconsistent with their stated actions. They know it.
We must understand that it has never been the goal of any collectivist movement to help the people they claim they want to help. The Marxist, communist, socialist, and progressive movements have always known that to make the claims they make is the ticket to them gaining power. As they raise taxes, increase regulations, and place more people on government welfare programs, they are purposefully enslaving more people to the master the sate and increasing their power base.
It is not the goal of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to help anybody but themselves. As they purposefully limit economic growth, the perception the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are creating is that they have the answer to solve the very problem they knowingly created. During the Obama regime, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) were proud of the record numbers of people that were on food stamps and receiving welfare checks. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) praised the goodness of government and tried to make the argument that this is why government should collect even more taxes and place even more regulation on business.
If Trump had not won, we would have seen a tax increase instead of a tax decrease, we would have seen even more regulation and not a massive roll back in regulation, we would have seen an increase in the poverty rate, and we would have heard why government is so good and not witnessing how capitalism reduces poverty and socialism increases poverty once again.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) agenda is the same agenda as that put forth by Marx and followed by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, and Chavez. That agenda is to control the population and force upon all people the concept of total conformity to the Marxist ideology while bringing about equality, or poverty, for all except the elite in government.
The pattern is clear. The pattern was not created by Marx. The pattern has failed every time it has been implemented. The pattern always ends in total societal and financial failure. The pattern cannot succeed. The pattern is always brought about by the collectivist movement through deceit and violence. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement in the United States is employing, encouraging, and enabling deceit and violence. If successful in bringing about the fundamental transformation promised by Comrade Obama, the result for the United States will be a total failure of society and a failure of our financial system. This result is as sure as is the result that gravity will always pull objects back to earth.
