Tax cuts demagogued as giveaways to the rich were creating higher wages and bonuses for workers and producing the lowest unemployment rates on record for blacks, Hispanics, single women, the disabled and those with criminal records. Wages at the bottom were growing faster than at the top.
Real median weekly wages have risen six times as much in three years under Mr. Trumps policies as they did in eight years under Mr. Obamas policies. Labor-force participation has risen by 1.1% under Mr. Trump while it fell by an astounding 4.6% under Mr. Obama.
In the first three years of the Trump administration, total employment was up 4.7% and real median household income was up $4,384, to an all-time high. Who benefited most? The groups Democrats claim to represent: blacks, Hispanics, single women, Native Americans, high-school dropouts, the disabled and those with criminal records. Each of those groups enjoyed the lowest unemployment rates on record. Blacks and Hispanics had the lowest incidence of poverty ever recorded.
Mr. Biden wants to transform the economy, beginning with a repeal of Mr. Trumps tax cuts and deregulatory program.
But now Democratic leaders want to use the economic destruction of the pandemic shutdown as an opportunity to implement a leftist agenda, with enormous new taxes, federal control of the health-care system, crippling energy mandates, a bailout of profligate states and cities, and an overpowering regulatory state. Mr. Biden is the face of the Democratic Party, but Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are its heart.

I shall not allow a doddering, demented, licenscious aged Caucasian, tethered to whichever Negroid team-mate that will be making policy, to count for my vote.
Or loss of freedom as well. America will be home of cowards and land of slaves.
The choice is not nearly so benign as the WSJ pretends.
In fact, as we are seeing in the daily headlines, the choice is quite apparent, clearly and loudly articulated and disturbing:
Voters Choice: Left or Right.

Only read the excerpt and the WSJ article appears to be the most positive for Trump that I’ve seen in months.
How did this get by the editors at the WSJ?
Ain't nobody got time fer dat!
