Tenants are not paying their rent today. Landlords are asking for the federal government to pay them.
Trump has said, “If it’s not your fault, the federal government will pay.” Job loss is not the tenants fault so they are entitled to steal free residency from their landlord. It is not the landlord’s fault either so they are entitled to demand the rent be paid by the federal government.
Overnight, with that “it’s not your fault” logic, Donald Trump has turned into not Bernie Sanders but AOC. Overnight, he has turned millions of Republican voters into full on socialists.
And all of this will have to be paid back by our grandchildren.
FDR and the Federal Reserve sent the us down the socialism-is-better road in the Great Depression. Democrats and lately Democrat Socialists have tried, and to a large extent succeeded, to push us much further down that road.
Now Donald Trump, in the blink of an eye has created the “it’s not your fault” rationalization of full-on socialism and turned American into a nation of welfare queens. Every bad thing that is not your fault must be paid for by the federal government. They have no such money, but no worries, the Federal Reserve will just print it.
That means hyperinflation. That won’t be your fault either. But you will starve just the same.
Ben Franklin told a woman who asked what kind of government the Founding Fathers had created. He answered, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.”
The following quote—attributed to Alexander Tytler or Alexis de Tocqueville—will be the final word on the matter:
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
