The Dangerous Squeaky Wheel

Nagging our way into Bankruptcy

There have been occasional warnings about the consequences of government spending that continue to go unheeded.  My favorite is: “If you think healthcare is expansive now, wait until it’s free”. That warning came out years ago, but went unheeded. 

Trump indicated that he would restore the economy, protect the safety net and allow the vulnerable to get jobs and lift themselves out of welfare. He has also shown that he will not put up with price gouging and waste. I continue to trust Trump’s judgement.

The Squeaky Wheel is the nagging left. Liberals who want the US to become a Socialist Republic are objecting to Trump succeeding in restoring our free market economy. This is a continuation of the “cold war”, but it’s all happening here in the US.

In 1980, we elected Reagan to restore our economy and he did that and ended the cold war with Russia.

In 1989, we handed it over to Liberal Republicans who governed like Democrats. The Gulf War in 1990 to save Kuwait was a success, but NAFTA in 1993 was a mistake. 

Republicans overreacted to the 9/11 terror attack and launched expensive land wars in Afghanistan and Iraq rather than restricting immigration in the US..

Republicans continued to be hoodwinked by Democrats when they should have resisted passing laws that forced banks to lend to unqualified buyers to create the 2008 Financial Meltdown. Republicans doubled the national debt from $5 trillion to $10 trillion. 

Then Republicans chose a weak Presidential candidate and allowed the Democrats to elect a Muslim Communist illegal alien as the President.  Obama passed Obamacare, announced open borders, increased immigration and implemented UN Agenda 21 in the US. Now our national debt is $20 trillion.

In 2016, we elected Trump to restore the economy and he is doing that. But rather than slither back into academia the way Liberals retreated during the Reagan years, they have taken to the streets. They have become the “squeaky wheel”.

We have all seen teenagers go ballistic when told that they will not be allowed to do what they want. Too often parents give in to end the tantrum. In this case the rioting Liberals are the teenagers. We should ignore them and take away their car keys and credit cards and government funding.
