Mark Caserta: Trump’s success will quiet the resistance

Liberals are scared to death of Donald J. Trump and his commitment to “fundamentally” returning America to greatness.

It’s not surprising the mainstream media are reduced to taking advantage of marginally informed Americans by propagating illegitimate news such as “potential” Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in defeating Hillary Clinton, despite not having a shred of evidence. Frankly, it’s all they’ve got.

Political bias from our nation’s major news outlets has never been more pronounced. Anyone suggesting differently is trying to sell you something.

Allow this humble conservative writer to remind readers exactly why Donald Trump is the president of the United States and why Democrats have lost 900 plus state legislature seats, 12 governorships, 69 House Seats and 13 Senate seats in the last eight years, per the Washington Post.

The Obama presidency represented a leftist Xanadu for progressives unlike anything they’d ever enjoyed. Electing arguably the most liberal president in history made “fundamentally changing America” much easier. Life was good for liberals.

But life wasn’t good for Americans. Millions had fallen out of the U.S. labor workforce which was at its lowest since the 1970s. Over 94 million workers were either not working or unable to find work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

As a result, the number of food stamp recipients went up by 10.7 million people, a 32 percent jump, during the liberal reign, according to the Department of Agriculture.

One doesn’t have to be an economist to understand the fewer people working, the weaker the economy. How can a nation possibly prosper with so many people unemployed?

The American dream had become a nightmare. Hope for a prosperous future was fading.

An intangible that liberals never discuss, but possibly the most relevant to our times, is that economic stagnation helps foster an environment of hopelessness, so debilitating for some they partake in behaviors consistent with individuals lacking a sense of self-worth and purpose.

I believe this has been a huge contributing factor in the increased level of drugs and criminal activity across the country.

But where should voters turn? Hillary’s leftist solution involved more government programs and handouts. And these benefits were seemingly being generously offered (at the taxpayer’s expense) not only to residents, but anyone willing to make the trip to the United States.

Democrats were proposing a scenario suggesting we could sustain more people with government assistance, using fewer tax dollars, from a dwindling workforce. It was senseless.

This could only be possible by raising taxes on working Americans and U.S. business charged with creating jobs. Anyone with any business acumen understands this would stifle the growth of industry and reduce the growth of jobs.

But given all this, liberals are choosing to focus on delegitamizing the Trump presidency rather than partner in returning our country to prosperity and jobs to our communities.

In other words, compromise your quality of life for their political gain.

My advice to Donald Trump: Keep your eye on the prize, Mr. President.

Continued success in reviving the economy and jobs will quiet the resistance.
