FINALLY! Biden Beats Trump

Ladies and gentlemen: our long national nightmare is finally over:

Joe Biden has been elected the 46th president of the United States of America.

Hopefully, Sleepy Joe — by being a rational adult — will be able to reverse the awful situation that Trump has brought us concerning our allies and enemies. It’s funny, but one thing that can’t be denied — and that practcally no one is talking about — is that in four short years, our allies no longer trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us. And that ladies and gentlemen, will forever be the legacy of Donald Trump1.

Yes, he cut taxes2 and yes, he did some really good things for our veterans3, and yes, he has appointed many good conservative judges, but let’s be honest: history will not be kind to Donald Trump.

Why? Well, let’s start with the fact that he is not a conservative. As I have written before, you can call yourself anything you like, but if you are not practicing Conservatism, you are not a “conservative”, and Donald Trump, being the lifelong Democrat that he is, does not have the slightest respect for any of the cornerstones of American Conservatism4.

Add to that his dismal record on Climate, Immigration, Trade and Foriegn Policy, and history will deal him the reality check that he so greatly dreads.

An era is over. Thankfully.

Let’s hope the future is brighter than our recent past.

yeah, in a minute…
1 Or, as he’s known by Vladimir Putin, whom he so very much likes and admires, “Comrade Trumpski”.

2 Of course, unlike Ronald Reagan’s famous tax cuts that actually increased the tax revenue to the federal government, because the tax rate at the time was higher than the optimal level, Trump’s tax cuts have cost the nation money. Oops.

3 Of note, of course, is that Trump did not pass or sign the Veterans Choice health care program (Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014) as he has repeatedly and consistently claimed. That bill, which of course was put together by Sen. John McCain in bipartisan fashion along with Sen. Bernie Sanders, was actually signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2014.

Now, President Trump did actually sign the VA MISSION Act of 2018, which modified and expanded the private-care program created by the Choice Act.

I’m not here to split hairs. Anything good that is done for our veterans, I’m in favor of, no matter who is responsible. But giving President Trump credit for the Choice Act is like blaming President Obama for the auto industry bailout in 2018, which of course was signed into law by George W. Bush with the provision that the funds would not be distributed until the next administration took office…

4 Much less the bedrock of Conservatism: character.
