Today President Obama reduced gun crimes by signing an executive order that makes it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to obtain guns. This is the sort of thing that used to require Congress to pass a law, but since President Obama routinely operates outside the Constitution, executive orders have taken the place of the legislative process. Oh, and that part about reducing gun crimes? Forget about it. The results of liberal policies are never what they predict.
For example, President Obama told us ObamaCare would reduce healthcare costs and reduce the deficit. The opposite occurred.
The War on Poverty was supposed to reduce poverty. Yet the poverty rate has remained essentially unchanged over the last 50 years. All we’ve done is saddle future generations of Americans with $19T in debt and no slowdown in sight.
Appeasement of terrorists was supposed to curb terrorism, but the terrorists are as emboldened as ever.
Electing the Obamessiah was supposed to end racial tension as we’ve known it, but we’re more racially divided now than when he took office.
Reducing carbon emissions is supposed to cool the planet, but it is the height of vanity to assume anything we do as humans can affect the atmosphere in any meaningful way. We haven’t reduced emissions. And the planet has not warmed in 19 years. The atmosphere is going to do what it’s going to do.
Creating the TSA was supposed to make us safer. But the TSA has an enormous failure rate. Instead, the TSA is best known for harassing airline passengers.
This is just a quick list off the top of my head. Let this serve as an example that when a liberal claims that “x” will result in “y,” don’t ever believe it. Their policies are never designed to make you safer, better, or more affluent. Their policies are always designed to grow government, raise taxes and/or strip away individual liberties.
