Mussolini claimed he was too. He also incited mobs to invade government buildings.

That will be his lasting legacy and his lasting stain on the so called law and order party.
You spent a year in many cities with riots with at least two domestic terror seditionist groups destroying swaths of them. Government buildings destroyed to along with churches. So you could cheat and win a election in conjunction with gumming up the works with covid. Your legacy has been around since humans first started to walk. And this new government you are bringing in will end the same way as all despots do eventually.
I know how you feel, MSM said it was a peaceful protest :rolleyes:
BTW, Biden blamed Trump on everything in the second day already. So you never know.

In a Republic, actually
People may not like it. I hear the same idea numerous times since 2019. :clap:
Trump's greatest legacy: The GOP now represents America's workers
Republicans are turning into the party of workers and Big Tech and Big Corporations buy influence with Democrats. Article notes how the ridiculous carried interest tax break manages to survive (people on Wall St. are able to convert what is in reality bonuses into capital gains, resulting in a lower tax rate and avoiding payroll taxes).

"...Google PACs and employees gave a staggering $3.6 million to Biden. Another $4.4 million went to the Democratic National Committee and Future Forward USA, a Democrat-aligned Super-Pac. Microsoft and its employees donated $17 million to Democratic candidates. Amazon gave $8.9 million; Facebook threw in $5 million and on and on. Overall, some 85 percent – 90 percent of Big Tech donations went to Democrats.

The GOP now represents fear, hate, and white grievance politics.

Neither party represents the working class.

Flooding the country with cheap third world labor, is not going to help the working class.


Yes, the gop has not been strong on this issue.


Trump was. Relatively speaking.
Literally speaking he was not. He did absolutely nothing about the job issue. Nothing. But you know this.

That someone else a long time ago, made the claim, falsely, does not establish that this claim is false.


Trump's policies were good for the working class, and had great potential to be even better, if they had had, more of a chance.

Except that unemployment fell to record lows and lower end wages were showing improvements even more than higher end wages, for the first time in decades.


So, the OP is correct.

The "rich" don't make their wealth on wages. Besides we are talking about the millions of illegals taking jobs that drew them here in the first place.

Correct. I was just pointing out that the impact was being felt especially in the lower end of the labor pool.

Don't you like the idea of a surge in wages, disproportionately benefiting those that need it the most?


And yes, we are talking about the millions of illegals. Trump stepped on that flow ever so slightly and the effects were quick and positive.


So, naturally we will now reverse that completely, and fuck the working class Americans.

The only "surge" was the states enacting higher minimum wages. Trump didn't do squat about the flow.

You wanna see if the GOP supports the working man?

See how they vote on the 2 trillion covid relief plan that the Dems are going to try to pass next week.

Wanna bet they vote AGAINST the working man and vote it down using the fillibuster?

Nope. Not at all. THe rise in wages was not limited to those states, not even close.

Trump did reduce the flow. He greatly motivated ICE and they started doing their jobs.


YOu never heard any of hte whining from farmers and other employers of illegals in the problems there were having?

Not surprising. The media wouldn't want to tell you that.

Their job is to investigate and raid businesses hiring illegals. They did squat.

Because it never happened.

That is part of their job. Not sure why you don't think that deporting illegals is part of their job.


That was not true. I am sure of why.

They are all at least this stupid as a baseline.

The bar is way lower from there.
