Democrats and the media obscure the truth

It’s incredible how many Reader’s Voice writers seem to be brainwashed, believing socialism will work in America when it has consistently destroyed nations and economies, including Venezuela, Brazil, Greece, Argentina, Cuba, etc. (Google “Socialism Destroys,” John Stossel 10.10.2018).

If they, God forbid, are able to elect candidates promising free medical, free college, free money, free misery, please do the math first. Since 2016, the overall inflation rate in Venezuela has increased from 274 percent to almost 54 million percent. (Google “Hyperinflation In Venezuela “ en.m.wikipedia.org)

Sadly, those reader voices incessantly trumpet Hillary’s popular vote margin, and again I suggest please do the math. Clinton’s entire popular vote margin came from just one state, California. Trump won the popular votes in 30 out of 50 states. He carried 84% of all counties. That’s 85% of the total area of America, 3 million square miles. Clinton won only 15% of the total area of America, a mere half-million square miles (The Limbaugh Letter, February 2017).

A midterm repeat was even probable if news media had honorably challenged the proven lie, by Mueller even, that Trump colluded with Russia to win election. Furthermore, news media should have honorably and truthfully front-paged the remarkable accomplishments of Trump, the incessant, hateful, Democrat Party and news media obstruction notwithstanding. Accomplishments such as: More Americans now employed than ever before; unemployment claims hit a 49-year low; median household income highest ever recorded; net exports increase by 59 billion; biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history.

In summary, President Trump is keeping his campaign promises and Americans that voted him in approve (Google washingtonexaminer.com — “319 results and promises kept in three years”). Democrat and news media hatefulness is deplorable.
