It was refreshing to listen to President Trump’s State of the Union speech the other night. It may have been the first time in eight long years an American president didn’t raise his voice and lecture in the face of citizens living in this country. President Trump’s speech was soft and thoughtful in comparison to Obama’s barking cadence. When you listened to Obama speak, or his fellow democrats for that matter, you often came away thinking, “what are they mad at?” After watching the way the congressional democrats reacted to president Trump’s speech it is easy to understand what they are mad at. They are mad at a successful America.
Democrats don’t like the idea of America becoming great again because it proves their progressive ideology to be a complete and utter failure. It is a dangerous ideology which shifts power away from the individual to an ever growing government state. It stifles individual liberty and freedom for the promise of big government collectivism. Democrat progressives always bow to the failed idea of an all powerful government. Their ultimate idea is to not make America great again. They want to make government great again. How did that work out during the Obama years?
Seventy five percent of Americans agreed with what president Trump had to say the other night. Why wouldn’t they? They can see the positive results his administration has achieved already as far as the availability of good jobs, low unemployment and high take home pay. All this good news can be attributed to the slashing of the regulatory state. A fairer tax code. Tax cuts for anyone who has a job. Things are looking good for America these days. Not so much for the democrats and their love for big government collectivism. At the State of the Union speech the other night many Americans finally began to realize what the progressive democrats are mad at. The sad truth is they are mad at a successful America.
