1. I have posited that, as Trump's greatest asset in the campaign has been his miraculous economy, after Hussein 'masterminded' the slowest recovery in history, and the answer to this by the party of evil is to organize a nationwide shutdown of the economy through lock-downs, riots, and closing schools to keep parents from going back to work.

And, it appears to have been successful.



2. The method was to make voters fearful by presenting hugely inflated numbers of deaths, reported as ‘positive cases,’ and ‘infections,’ the number constantly reported, and constantly inflated.
As per the thread title, no cost to Americans was too high for the Democrats in their rabid desire for power.
And.....we have proof in the latest news:


"Data From Yelp Shows 60% of All Businesses that Shut Down During COVID Are Now Permanently Closed

It’s official – more than 50% of the businesses across the nation that closed during the COVID hysteria of the past year are now permanently closed.

In July this year New York’s former governor Cuomo was begging businesses to come back to New York. It was too late, Cuomo and numerous tyrannical governors across the nation had done their damage. Millions were laid off and small businesses across the nation were closed.

As of Aug. 31, some 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That’s down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.

In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won’t be reopening.
“Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, vice president of data science at Yelp, told CNBC."



You voted Democrat?

Then you voted for this attack on America and Americans.

That is a very disingenuous statement that is a half truth and you know it.

I agree....but, as President of the Pessimist's Club, I see more along the lines of the destruction of Western Civilization that the Left has planned.

I am sorry you live in so much fear you let it affect your existence since the only thing we have to fear is, fear itself and that can be overcome by faith in yerself and your nation. If you have no faith then there is always suicide, priest and psychologist.

So there is no reason to fear Trump or global warming or Covid?

Glad to hear it.

The evidence suggests an earlier Democrat President having no qualms at a similar tactic to accrue power.

FDR's policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate



“Roosevelt's role in lifting the nation out of the Great Depression has been so revered that Time magazine readers cited it in 1999 when naming him the 20th century's second-most influential figure.”



  1. After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.
  2. …we have always worried whether we would have another 10- to 15-year economic slump," said Ohanian, vice chair of UCLA's Department of Economics. "We found that a relapse isn't likely unless lawmakers gum up a recovery with ill-conceived stimulus policies."
  3. …Ohanian and Cole blame specific anti-competition and pro-labor measures that Roosevelt promoted and signed into law June 16, 1933….Even after being deemed unconstitutional, Roosevelt's anti-competition policies persisted — albeit under a different guise, the scholars found.
  4. "President Roosevelt believed that excessive competition was responsible for the Depression by reducing prices and wages, and by extension reducing employment and demand for goods and services," said Cole, also a UCLA professor of economics. "So he came up with a recovery package that would be unimaginable today, allowing businesses in every industry to collude without the threat of antitrust prosecution and workers to demand salaries about 25 percent above where they ought to have been, given market forces. The economy was poised for a beautiful recovery, but that recovery was stalled by these misguided policies."
  5. Cole and Ohanian calculate that NIRA and its aftermath account for 60 percent of the weak recovery. Without the policies, they contend that the Depression would have ended in 1936 instead of the year when they believe the slump actually ended: 1943.
  6. "The fact that the Depression dragged on for years convinced generations of economists and policy-makers that capitalism could not be trusted to recover from depressions and that significant government intervention was required to achieve good outcomes," Cole said. "Ironically, our work shows that the recovery would have been very rapid had the government not intervened."

Or as Mark Steyn presciently noted, in late October of 2008, other nations had economic Depressions at the start of the 1930s; the US had a Great Depression, earning that added sobriquet due to its needless longevity.





Democrats see their power as far more important than the lives and prosperity of Americans.

Best song ever written about America.

I'm lucky enough to have moved to a town that looks like those where this video was filmed, but our town is thriving. It has reached a nice balance. There is nearly no crime, nearly no drugs. After a wild storm a few days ago which blew down a lot of branches, the high school kids, without being asked, got out in their trucks and started hauling the downed branches to a place designated for piling them up and burning them. The 90-something lady across the street brought me a plate of homemade cookies a couple of days after I moved in. My next door neighbor has a really cool riding mower so he mows my huge lawn every time he mows theirs. He also gets out his ATV with the blade and plows the snow in everyone's driveway who might be having a little trouble doing it themselves. When the kids TP'ed a few houses homecoming weekend, the "victims" laughed it off as kids being kids, instead of getting angry and mean about it.

The tight-knit community gets together very regularly for pancake breakfast at the American Legion and everyone supports the not-for-profit childcare center.

No businesses here died because of lockdowns. No jobs lost. The governor of this state is a hero to most for saving commerce and jobs.

I love Alan's song but I'm very grateful to have found a town where the "little man" is still vibrant.

Thanks for listening. I will look at this song differently from now on.

No need to fear it because we can't stop it. Trump is a dolt about to die so no fear there either.

You do fail to mention the US citizens leaving the US to move to other nations unafflicted by the fall of capitalism like immigration to the USSR where people like the Koch family fracking the oilfields of the USSR and later went on to create the cracking industry in Nazi Germany. But, you want to claim it was all FDR's fault for making these great Americans do work to build up our future enemies...

I agree 100% . The left is just getting momentum. They never quit, and won't. Stop till America is ruined. Now that they rigged the voting machines , what will stop them?

More right wing propaganda from the party which has crashed the American economy 3 times in the past 40 years.

Obama's recovery was the longest most sustained recovery in American history, and set records for job creation. Obama doubled the DOW Jones in his first term, and it didn't even go up by 50% under Trump. Trump not only failed to match Obama's numbers on job creation and stock market growth, he couldn't even match Obama's GDP growth which you just castigated as the weakest ever.

If Obama was the worst ever and Trump didn't match a single one of Obama's numbers in GDP, job creation, or the Dow-Jones, wouldn't that make Trump the worst ever?

It wasn't the Democrats who ordered businesses to shut down, and had no real plan for the pandemic. That was Donald Trump and his Pandemic Task Force.
