News host Jessie Waters recently said, “We’re in a recession and the border is wide open, we have a crime wave, we’ve lost money in the stock market, wages are down, mortgage rates are soaring and we’re talking about a nuclear war with Russia and the Democrats’ message is, vote for us because the other guys will make it worse.”

We are in a recession (CNN, Allison Morrow, 10/2/22).

An NPR poll found a majority of Americans see an invasion at the southern border (Joel Rose, 8/12/22). We have a crime wave (Time, Josiah Bates, 7/29/22). Losses have wiped out $9 trillion from Americans’ wealth (CNBC, 9/27/22). Hourly wage rate growth is down (CNN, P R LaMonica, 10/2/22). Mortgage rates continue to rise (US News Money, E Giovanetti, 10/3/22). The U.S. and allies are grappling with the question, will Moscow go nuclear?(AXIOS, Dave Lawler, 10/1/22). 

Biden’s press secretary readily admitted Joe “took some historic steps” releasing millions of barrels of oil from the Strategic Reserves to bring down costs at the pump (YAHOO, 10/4/22). Now with OPEC’s production cut and reserves the lowest since 1984, old Joe’s tapping the reserves again (Forbes, R Rapier, 9/7/22). That’s a foolish and risky gamble with our strategic oil supply for one party’s political gain.

Compare your 401-k to two years ago and ask how Democrats can say with a straight face we can have a bright future ahead with them in charge. Can Democrats honestly say then that America is more prosperous, safer and better since Joe Biden stumbled into the White House?

There’s no doubt that gas prices increased, triggering increases in nearly all products and commodities.  And most Republicans likely think this is the sole doing of President Biden and the Democrats, which it isn’t.  Much of the inflation can be attributed directly to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s failure to increase interest rates a year ago.  He admits as such; and he “thought” inflation was “transitory”, but also blames inflation on the failure of the supply chain (WA. Post, 5/12/2022).

So why aren’t those same Republicans grateful for high inflation?  

They want President Biden turned out of office, so they should recognize that in order for that to happen, they must all gladly pay the price, since many voters vote their pocketbooks.  Shouldn’t they be cheering, and wanting even higher inflation so Biden will be even more likely turned out of office? Just a cost for Republican success, that’s all.  Stop complaining; and be grateful.  

Bit of a paradox isn’t it, just to get Republican candidates elected.
