Beware of government of wolves
Our country’s globally dominant economy was like an all-but-beaten prizefighter on wobbly legs of stagnant economy and raging unemployment, as Clark Judge put it. Obama’s angry anti-capitalist regulators stayed with clearly wrong decisions and justified their failed economic predictions, hiding behind the politics of envy and the superstition of climate science.
Now Obama/Hillary supporters are attacking President Trump for butchering their sacred cows of hyper-regulation and open borders to deliver a newly prosperous economy and an optimistic future. Naturally, echo chamber Democrats are flooding the media with mindless anti-Trump agitprop and disrupting Republican town halls.
Then there are the domestic terrorists who physically attack anyone whose First Amendment expressions differ from their opinions, most recently punching out an elderly female professor at Middlebury College and a talk show host at a Tiburon restaurant.
Maybe this is a Democrat political play to get the undecided vote: Support the alt-left middle-finger Democrats, as the Wall Street Journal calls them, who label their enemies as bigots, sexists, homophobes, and Nazis. Or vote for the brooding nut cases in jackboots who beat up their ideological enemies and smash property.
Just remember that a nation of gullible sheep invites a government full of wolves.
