Why the Left Hates Prosperity

Here is Moore's rule of modern-day politics: The better the economy performs under President Donald Trump and the more successes he racks up, the more unhinged the left becomes. It's a near linear relationship. And it goes for media as well.

That's why the monthly jobs announcements and the quarterly GDP reports, like the one released Oct. 26, are the unhappiest days of the year for the Trump haters. News of 3.5 to 4 percent growth and 7 million surplus jobs are the bane of the resistance movement's existence.

So with the economy flying high, the pundits who predicted Trump would shut down the world economy have had to continually invent new reasons that Trump is the worst thing to happen to the United States since typhoid fever.

Consider the latest leftist rant: Trump has moved the GOP to the far right and has hijacked the principles of the Republican Party. Whatever happened, they ask, to the good ol' days when moderates in the GOP used to compromise, cut deals with Ted Kennedy and capitulate?

Democrats hate prosperity because they want to keep people in chains. Keep them dependent on the government. This is a form of control. A form of slavery really. What the government gives it can take away and they can hold that over your head if you don't conform to their way of thinking. Anyone who denies this is either a liar, a product of brainwashing and/or the dumbed down US public "education" system or a complete and total ignoramus.

So, the left would rather act like a third world country than admit Trump's successes. The problem is "they" are benefiting from the successes. Sorry, can't have it both ways; go to Venezuela.

They hate prosperity because their "bullying" tactics did not create it and they cannot take crdit for it .
