The Unions have always backed the Marxist philosophies, “from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs,” and competition is horrible because it encourages people to perform at their best and then rewards based on those efforts. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have backed these philosophies for years by promoting unions and by promoting the American Safety Net System and the American Welfare System. Never mind that it is the anti-Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) philosophy that propelled the United States to become the most prolific economy the world has ever seen.
It was the adoption of American Capitalism and Individualism that allowed the American system to grow and expand, minimizing poverty and constantly raising the standard of living for all. It was this system of Individualism that made the Untied States the envy of the world and why people from without dreamed about becoming a part of this American Dream that is exactly the opposite of what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and some of the Republican Establishment are demonizing today in the same way Marx did.
The Untied States has done something remarkable. We elected a non-politician president named Donald Trump. Trump was and is a business man who understands the value to the individual and to the company when a worker’s employment is based on effort and contribution. Of course, the unions and the Marxist proclaimers are crying discrimination against our workers who have come to believe the pay check is a gift and not a result of hard work and contribution.
Trump has issued three executive orders aimed at getting rid of low-performing federal employees, the White House announced. The changes could save taxpayers an estimated $100 million per year, according to the announcement. The new rules promote basing employment on merit rather than tenure. Additionally, federal agencies are encouraged to fire employees instead of suspending them. Employees will also have less time to improve their performance, according to published reports.
A White House announcement stated, “Tenured federal employees have stolen agency property, run personal businesses from work, and been arrested for using drugs during lunch breaks and not been fired.” In a statement accompanying the release, Trump said the government must “operate more efficiently and more securely.” Under the new orders, federal workers will be expected to devote at least 75 percent of their time on direct job duties.
The American Federation of Government Employees, a union for federal workers, said that 700,000 members have denounced the reforms. Political opposition and potential litigation may result, union leaders suggested. “We will see him in court, we will see him in the street, we will see him wherever we can be,” AFGE president J. David Cox Sr. said in a Washington Examiner report.
Cox called the orders “a classic example of this administration’s attack and assault on women, attack and assault on minorities.” Cox told the Washington Examiner the new rules were “modeled after the VA Accountability Act” that recently became law, allowing for expedited firing of Veterans Administration workers. He also said he fears the orders are a step toward making federal workers “at will” employees. That could mean taking political considerations in into account for hiring and firing decisions.
Cox said that in his opinion, “President Trump has no respect for the rule of law and this is just the latest case.”
President Trump has no respect for lazy employees who feel entitled and believe in being rewarded on need and not effort and ability. President Trump believes in Individualism and not Collectivism. President Trump believes in the American Capitalist system that was also promoted and championed by our Founders. Thank you President Trump for protecting the American public from the “free loading and enabling” policies of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Republican Establishment.
