Black Americans are the canary in the American coal mine. They, like all Americans, except for the wealthiest, are worse off after eight years of progressive redistribution that has confiscated wealth through increased taxation, increased regulation and pay-to-play crony capitalism.
Thus, opportunity and liberty for the masses has been confiscated. The wealthiest retain their wealth and liberty for now by paying financial tribute to the Obama executive branch regulatory agencies and quasi-governmental entities like the Clinton Foundation.
This result indicts Obama’s progressivism as another failed example of totalitarianism and socialism. The illiberal progressives acknowledged their failure and indicted themselves when they attempted through the IRS (quasi secret police) to suppress conservative speech. They could not demonstrate real world results or intellectually compete in the marketplace of ideas, so they intimidate. This is totalitarianism.
Just because the press has largely underreported these facts due to its taking sides does not make them any less true. Progressivism has failed but will seek to double down on bad policy, and given Clinton’s history, pernicious behavior. The only remaining question is whether it will take America, and its liberty and exceptionalism with it.
Vote against this outcome by voting against Clinton. Restore liberty.
