Severed Ties with a Democrat Lately?
There seems to be a new attitude emerging, Conservatives who no longer consider themselves friends with Democrats that may have been friends for decades. There really is a huge disparity in how we view the world these days. However, the reality of the situation is actually the opposite, you are much more likely to be dumped by a liberal, than the other way around.
The great divide definitely occurred over the past 8 years, when the hope and change that was promised, was delivered. This hope and change was anything but positive. Yet, the left regards Obama as the best President ever to have been elected. You wonder what America they have been living in? Do they not see the negative changes that have occurred? I believe they have been duped by the establishment and media, that does the bidding for the Democrats. I suppose if you are gullible to believe the mainstream media actually reports the news, then on the surface it may appear he was a great President.
Let us examine the changes that have had a negative effect on the country:
- Not a single year of 3% GDP growth
- The number of Americans below the poverty level rose 3.5%
- Median Household income down 2.3%
- Americans who own homes down 5.6%
- Americans on Food stamps rose 39%
- National debt rose 80%
- 1 in 5 Americans are now out of the workforce
- Insurance premiums under the mandate have risen double digits to over 100%
- Our National Security is in jeopardy
- Illegal immigrants flow across the borders has exploded
- Anti Law Enforcement sentiment all time high
- Smallest military since WWII
- More mandates implemented on business than at any other time in history
- Racial divide is at a fever pitch
These are just a few of the negative effects, that far outweigh anything positive, to which I have still been unable to quantify what those are.
While having conversations with your liberal friends, they deny these truths, yet they rely on the liberal fact checking sites, Snopes.com, Factcheck.org for their information. These sites, along with the Mainstream media, have been proven to pass lies as truth and cover for the actual numbers by siting the real numbers are phony. Fake news was created by the left, now they claim everything that is on a Conservative site is fake news? Liberals live in an upside down reality.
It has become apparent that liberals and conservatives have a vast difference of opinion, whether connected to the economy, moral issues, religion or size of government. I don’t see that changing anytime soon, and may even become worse. Hopefully your friendships are strong enough to withstand politics, however, I am not holding my breath.
