We don’t need socialism

The GDP was reported at 4.1 percent for the last quarter, the highest in years. North Korea is slowly executing an agreement to move away from nuclear weapons. Unprecedented. And Kim Jong Un has finally begun returning our fallen military from the Korean conflict.

Trade talks and an associated agreement to eliminate tariffs between the U.S. and our European Union trading partners are moving ahead. American workers will soon be able to compete fairly in European markets. China has been served notice that the U.S. will no longer tolerate piracy of our IP or participate in trade that grossly benefits China to the detriment of American workers and companies.

This is good news for America. But Lisa Brown wants us to send her to Washington to “change” all this progress. Sorry, Lisa, we don’t need a progressive socialist to represent Eastern Washington. We need someone with real answers. Veterans, small business owners and working people are happy with bigger paychecks, an improved VA, reduced bureaucracy, and fair trade agreements. Something you could never deliver.
