A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

WHEN WILL THE PEOPLE GET ENOUGH?

The numbers are not the latest but all have increased beyond the figures. You can just use Gasoline as an example. Is there a difference in raising taxes or raising prices. The sad part is the “Demoncrats” keep telling the poor people who pay no taxes they are there to protect them. When prices accelerate like the following table who gets hurt the most? Even poor people have to eat and the few who actually work. Food stamps that buy less at the grocery hurt only the poor. If the ones I stand behind at the market, who all have cell phones, and pay for steaks with food stamps, you had better get ready to use hamburger for steaks. Just keep voting for these folks and lose some weight.  CB

Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as

during the rest of our entire nation’s history.. Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right

lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane. 27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

  1. I was incredibly pleased to secure this website. I wanted to thanks for your time for this great read!! I precisely enjoying every small bit of it and I have you bookmarked to take a look at new stuff you blog post.

  2. Hope and Change. I think the average Obama voter was HOPING he would put more CHANGE in their pocket. No luck. Your chart highlights the exact brand of CHANGE they got instead. Good post.
