Oh I forgot. You are a fucking Frostback Hoser. Your opinion means less than dogshit.DemoTurd party loyalists like Dragon think the party is clean and pure.
I'm not an American, much less a Democrat, but I can read the public record of arrests and convictions during the various administrations and can't help but notice a distinct difference: There have been a combined 317 criminal indictments combined against members of the Trump, Reagan and Nixon Administrations, 3 total against the members of the Obama, Clinton and Carter Administrations.
Of the three Republican Presidents, Trump had the most, by far. And before you start blaming Democrats for the prosecutions, these people were prosecuted by the Republican Departments of Justice, under those Presidents. Furthermore, Trump and W both had Republican Houses and Senates to control investigations of their administrations as well.
You fools repeated call the Obama Administration the "most corrupt in history", as a non-partisan, impartial observer, that just looks like yet another Republican lie. Crime across the board in the USA went DOWN under Obama, and has skyrocketed under Trump.
Just reading the statistics on these two parties as an impartial observer, in regards to:
- the economy - 0 crashes under Democrats versus 4 for Republicans
- crime - lowest levels in 20 years under Obama, skyrocketing under Trump
- illegal immigation - more deportations and more employer prosecutions under Democrats results in lower illegal immigration and self-deportation
- stock market - Obama doubled the market in his first 4 years, Trump's went up by 50%. 100% is more than 50% - a lot more.
- world trade - the US trade deficit was nearly $150 billion higher under Trump, than it was under Obama.
As a banker, I was trained to drill down on data and parse financial and government records. 30 years a nerd. My analysis leads me to wonder how any reasonably intelligent person who was voting for their best financial interests, would ever vote for a Republican. Unless you're really rich and benefitting from all of those tax cuts for the top 10% because no other economic level of the population is really benefitting from these policies.
When your policies are doing harm to 90% of the population, and the only way you can get votes is to lie about the other side, your country is in trouble.
Yeah, I live in the best country in the world, with one of the best education systems in the world, with the fastest growing middle class in the world. World leaders are beating a path to our door, to learn how we avoided the 2008 global financial meltdown (banking regulations, bitches), and how we're managing the covid crisis, living over the meth lab that is the USA.
What would Canadians know about how good governance functions or what a well run country looks like? It's not like we're doing better than everybody else in building a great country!!
