Whose Strategy?

Do you know what the Left’s strategy of addressing an ailing economy is? Yes, you do because you’ve seen it very recently. It’s sending cash hand-outs to people. The result is always the same. Inflation, labor shortage, stagnating economy, an overheated real está market on the verge of popping. In short, everything we are seeing as a result of COVID stimulus checks. It sounds like such a great idea. Give money directly to the people! And it fails every single time. The Spanish socialists destroyed the Spanish economy with this strategy at the turn of the century, for example.

Do you know the Right’s strategy of dealing with an ailing economy? It’s investing into the military and strengthening the US dollar by asserting global dominance. Sounds so icky. A lot worse than giving money to the people. It works, though. It always works.

The Democrats overplayed their hand and they know it. So they are dialing it back and adopting Republican strategies. On crime, for instance, they are back to strengthening the police departments. And guess what? It’s going to work. Crime rates will go down. But since the Republicans are pouting instead of noticing what’s happening and talking about it, the Dems will be able to claim that “defund police” worked. Because nobody ever held their feet to the fire and forced them to recognize that they had stopped defunding.

On the economy, again, instead of saying, “ah, great, whenever shit hits the fan, the Dems adopt our time-tested Republican strategies,” Republicans eagerly take the bait and stupidly denounce their own favorite and massively effective policies. When the strategies start to work (as they undoubtedly will), what then? After you spent a year braying about how these are stupid ideas that will never work? After you’ve renounced your patrimony, what’s the next step? Well, we all know what it is. The next step is always to pout about how unfair the world is and stoke cheap moral outrage. “Yes, I’m a total loser but I’m morally superior, so there’s that!”

I don’t want moral superiority. I want a win. And I want to live in an America that has the strongest economy in the world, the most comfortable lifestyles, and a great sense of pride in itself. These goals can only be achieved together, and currently they have no champion inside the country. Let’s hope one appears soon.

  1. Is this because liberals have embraced fluidity and it’s easier for them to turn around and adopt somebody else’s ideas as their own at the drop of a hat? Is this the positive side of fluidity?

    1. That’s a great observation. I haven’t thought about it but it does make sense. Fluidity, like everything, not only takes things away but also offers rewards. Otherwise, nobody would accept it.

      1. So what’s the solution? Should the Right embrace fluidity of thought? Wouldn’t that turn it into the Left and then what’s the point?

        1. Not embrace but anticipate. Realize that it exists and it will be deployed against us at every turn. Look at how fast the Left dropped the gays in favor of the trans. Tomorrow they’ll drop the trans if it’s convenient. The only constant is power. Everything else is mutable. We need to stop taking them seriously, like they believe any of the garbage they spout. A few honest fanatics do but they have zero power.

          These are cynical people who exploit every weakness. And our greatest weakness is that we have no strategy. All we do is react. In a very predictable way.

    1. And he never built the wall either, so what? I wish people stopped coming here in search of a straw man Trump apologist who doesn’t exist.
