Considering Obama’s motto of the “fundamental transformation of America” (FTA), compared with Trump’s MAGA, I pose the following observations:
When Obama swore at his presidential acceptance speech to Fundamentally Transform America, the liberal press swooned and exclaimed that this evil, racist, sexist, capitalist nation was going to finally get its due.
But when Donald Trump stated that he will Make America Great Again and then quickly after taking office established policies to make his statements come true, the liberal press loses its cookies and screams and yells as though the sky were falling.
It’s obvious that not only did the liberal press love Obama and trust him to make the radical changes that they admire, but it’s equally obvious that they agreed with those radical, liberal policies that hurt people when they lost their own healthcare coverage to Obamacare and in the process hurt small business owners who had spent years establishing businesses and abiding with ever-encroaching environmental regulations and tax laws that kept changing the way they did business, thereby placing their businesses at risk. Liberals seem to forget that hurting small businesses only assures that the large companies that liberals pretend to hate, with teams of tax specialists and offices full of high-priced lawyers, would be more prosperous and successful as their smaller competitors flailed and went out of business, and this disregard for small businesses places the hourly and salaried workers employed with those smaller companies at risk of losing their jobs if the company suffers financial set-backs.
When Trump wants to keep illegal aliens out of the country and wants to assure employment to low-wage workers by opposing minimum wage laws, and when he puts a halt to the bilking of the American tax payer via Climate Change agreements with the scoundrels at the United Nations, liberals panic and go ballistic.
The problem is that liberals lack the ability to perform a real evaluation of what policies are good or bad for America, and that the only judgment they make on these competing policies is based on whether a Democrat or a Republican makes the decision to implement the policy. That partisan frame of mind is a dangerous position for the nation to be in, because neither party has a monopoly on what policies are right or wrong, aside from their liberal or conservative political philosophy. It takes more time and some real critical thinking to be able to serve the nation well, and the ability to weigh all sides of an issue is foreign to liberals.
