Democrats love socialism, because they see power at the end of it. It doesn’t matter if they bankrupt the country because they’ll have the power and the voters. What’s disturbing is that they know socialism has failed every single time it’s been tried. So to vote for Democrats is basically a decision to jump off the cliff without a parachute.
Shared riches for the ruling class and shared poverty for everyone else. Vote for Republicans and you get jobs, vote for Democrats and you get leftist mobs.
In what could only be called WINNING, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the American economy is back on top as the most competitive country in the world, for the first time in a decade:
The Federalist Papers report,
The U.S. is back on top as the most competitive country in the world, regaining the No. 1 spot for the first time since 2008 in an index produced by the World Economic Forum, which said the country could still do better on social issues.
America climbed one place in the rankings of 140 countries, with the top five rounded out by Singapore, Germany, Switzerland and Japan. All five countries’ scores rose from 2017, with the U.S. notching the second-biggest gain after Japan’s.
The top spot hasn’t gone to the U.S. since the financial crisis stalled output and triggered a global economic slowdown.
“Economic recovery is well underway, with the global economy projected to grow almost 4% in 2018 and 2019,” said the report, published Tuesday by the organization that produces the Davos conference on global politics and economics.
However, “recovery remains vulnerable to a range of risks and potential shocks,” the authors warned. They cite a brewing trade war between the U.S. and China as a possible hindrance to growth that could potentially derail the recovery and deter investment. The U.S. has levied tariffs on a total of $250 billion of Chinese goods and China has retaliated with tariffs on $110 billion of U.S. exports as the two nations spar over trade imbalances and other issues.
