Well, your first hint is at the bottom of the article,

Justin Haskins is the editorial director of The Heartland Institute and the director of Heartland’s Stopping Socialism Project.

But the beginning of the article sounded some alarm bells,

Many analysts were predicting 8.5% growth, but a report from the Commerce Department estimated gross domestic product improved by just 6.5%, a 26% difference.

What kind of alternate universe do you guys live in when 6.5% growth rate is viewed as a negative? I mean, prior to Covid, Trump only dreamed of having that high of a GDP growth rate.

And inflation, you guys have just seized on that like you were clutching to your last strand of pearls. Sure, it pegged at 5.4%, but a huge part of that increase can be attributed to used car prices, hotel prices, and rental car prices. If you are not in the market for a used car it does not effect you. Same for the rentals and hotels. Meanwhile wage growth for the same period was 3.6%, biggest increase since Obama took office, go figure. And food prices only went up 2.4%. And here is the thing, if that government spending wasn't working we wouldn't be looking at this kind of inflation. A trained economist would know that, but the author of the OP is a propagandist. It is stunning how he makes the claim that government spending isn't stimulating the economy and then transitions to inflation, which is caused by an overstimulated economy. Comical really.

So? Who in their right mind doesn't want to stop socialism?

And BTW, the 6.5% growth is a natural occurrence for a country just coming out of a total shutdown, and people are coming out of their hidey-holes. Biden had nothing to do with that.

But just imagine how vibrant an economy we would be currently having under Trump?

It ain't got real ugly yet. Except for the people who cannot pay their rent and illegals wandering aimlessly.

OMG, the Heartland Institute is not fighting socialism. If they were, they would be marching to North Dakota. And zoom, I am sure that just flew right over your head. The Heartland Institute is just another one of the Koch brothers weaponized institutions that doesn't fight socialism, they defend the oligarchy. Hell, these guys teamed up with Philip Morris and claimed second hand smoke wasn't harmful. Today they are prominent Global Warming deniers, of course they are, defending the Koch brothers operations.

And if Trump was in charge the people would still be hiding in their hidey holes. My speculation is as good as your speculation. And lets be honest, Trump had no plans for winning the election, he only planned to manipulate public opinion into believing the election was stolen because he knew all along he was going to get defeated. So he had nothing to get the economy going. Trump positioned himself to lose, Biden planned to win, and that is why the economy grew over six percent. Biden came in running.

When most of the democratic base sits at home drawing a check, they won't know the difference
In the manner they always do, through their pets in the media, and educational system, and elites in high places like soros, gates and bezos etc they will cast blame and accuse the right and capitalism for impending doom.


Look at the small example the fact that the last republican mayor of Chicago was 1931. Yet, every single murder and cesspool it is, is all blamed on white law abiding gun owners. In other words, American system is to blame and not their policies that deliberately cause strife since the democraps thrive on Robin Hood fairy tales.

That is the way of the world. The way of this devilish world that is sinking rapidly into eternal oblivion.

I've heard this same garbage for 60 some years. I've survived all presidents in that time and because of only myself, not my employers, I've done well. Same old story. I will survive Biden, made it thru trump somehow, the list goes on.

And when the economy goes to shit, who do you think the US citizens are going to go looking for?
