Unless you have been under a rock, Senator Elizabeth Warren just did an interview with CNBC host John Harwood. Her responses are very telling, and should be disturbing. After all, Senator Warren just appeared on a New Yorker magazine cover being profiled as a presidential contender — really? Senator Warren is just another example of the mental disorder that has become post-modern progressive/socialism in America.
Senator Warren admitted that she wants to roll back the tax cuts that have been passed. She would take the 21% corporate rate back up to 35% if not higher. But, what was truly unnerving was her assertion that America was “very prosperous” when the individual tax rate was at 50%. Yes, Elizabeth Warren believes that half of your earnings — what you have worked hard to achieve financially — should be usurped by the federal government. Why? Y’all know, so that people like her can decide, redistribute, your earnings, your resources, based upon their ideological agenda of “free.”
Now, how many of you grasp the abject absurdity of having a United States Senator from Massachusetts advocating for massive taxation on production, and productive citizenry? If you do not comprehend what I am saying, then you obviously did not take, and certainly did not pass, American History.
Our Founding Fathers, especially men like John and Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and other patriots like Abigail Adams, would be appalled at Senator Warren, and so should we all.
Needless to say, I do not think Senator Warren will support the Tax Cuts 2.0 legislation that would make personal income tax cuts permanent. Pathetic.
Let’s put Senator Warren’s comments in perspective as evidence of the delusion, the serious mental disorder that she, and her ilk, possess. This Friday we will get GDP numbers for the United States. All indications are that the number will be at or above 4%. Let me repeat that again: the GDP report number being released this Friday could be at or above 4%. During the reign of Obama, the ultimate progressive socialist leftist, he never achieved 2% GDP growth. As a matter of fact, since that number has been reported, Obama was the first US President to never make that marker.Friday we get GDP numbers for the US. Indications are it will be at/above 4%. Obama never achieved 2% GDP, the 1st US President never making the marker. Click To Tweet
We have record unemployment. We have more job openings than people to fill them. We have 63K truck driver jobs open in America. Our workforce participation rate is rising, wages are no longer stagnant. Individual paychecks are increasing and businesses are returning to the United States, and investing in workforce development and better compensation. There is a reason why my adopted home state of Texas has the largest population growth in America, 490K, followed by Florida. The reason is simple: tax and regulatory policies that promote economic growth. Now, I could go on, but I think you get the point, unless you are a progressive socialist, or like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you have an economics degree from Boston University.
Senator Warren is certainly what we call, “stuck on stupid.” Her mentality is that they do not want to see private sector economic growth, or individual economic empowerment, even though it means increased revenues into the government coffers. Senator Warren — along with her comrades Sanders, Gillebrand, Harris, and Booker — prefer economic enslavement, and dependence. They reject the fundamental American principle, and premise, of equality of opportunity. Instead, they desire the equality of outcomes. The leftists need your resources in order to create their equal outcomes for us all.
This is why I say she, and her ilk, comrades, and followers, are mentally unstable. They embrace principles that we all know have failed. They refuse to accept the fact, and truth, that the American economy is thriving, and that means American citizens. Notice I said citizens, not illegal immigrants.
Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing and expecting different results.” Anyone who wishes to reverse our economic growth, and reinstate failed economic policies that were tried for the previous eight years of the Obama administration is indeed, certifiably insane, nuts, crazy. Anyone voting for people who believe in such are certifiably insane, nuts, and crazy. People who are teaching these failed Keynesian economic principles, Marxism, and socialist theories, are a dangerous special kind of stupid, but that explains why we have these millennials who believe this stuff.The leftists need your resources in order to create their equal outcomes for us all.

Let me put Senator Warren’s assertions in perspective, as beautifully stated by a great American president:
“The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names—liberty and tyranny.” — President Abraham Lincoln, address at sanitary fair, Baltimore, Maryland, April 18, 1864.
The clear, and evident, point is that what Senator Elizabeth Warren believes in, as a progressive socialist, has nothing to do with liberty, your second unalienable individual right endowed by our Creator. It does, as Lincoln articulates, have everything to do with tyranny.
And if you know your American history, the Old School Patriots fought against, and defeated, the exact same tyranny, and it started in the state of Massachusetts. Damn, as stated, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it!
