Liberal Policies Hurt People—Again
Well, well, well. A crack in the edifice and a realization that liberal policies hurt people.
I’m talking about San Francisco, where a city council member introduced a measure to exclude illegal aliens who get arrested for dealing fentanyl from the protection of the city’s no-deportation sanctuary policy. Roughly 70,000 people died from fentanyl and other opioid overdoses in America last year. San Francisco officials believe illegal aliens make up the vast majority of fentanyl distributors in the city.
Sanctuary protection is not the only liberal policy that hurts people. Here are some more:
California’s population is down 500,000 in the last two years. People fled California cities plagued with homelessness, high crime, high housing costs, and lingering COVID restrictions. Every single one of these things has roots in liberal policies, policies that hurt people. Businesses are also fleeing California because of liberal policies. Elon Musk called California the “land of overregulation, overlitigation, and overtaxation” on his way out the door. All preventable human-caused disasters.
It’s much the same story in Portland, which has lost population three years in a row. “In Portland, many liberals are dodging stray bullets, losing catalytic converters to thieves, and sidestepping tents. Then they open their tax bills,” one news outlet wrote. Even liberal media are calling Portland “broken” and saying everybody hates it. “Portland has switched from attracting new arrivals to repelling its current citizens,” a left-wing alternative weekly candidly admitted. What do you expect when Democrat politicians let Antifa run riot without consequence and business owners get robbed so many times their insurance companies stop paying off? Liberal policies hurt people.
Not convinced yet? I’m loaded for bear today:
High taxes, not only in California, but in New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and Massachusetts have caused residents to pick up and move to low-tax states in recent years.
Family and medical leave laws in the U.S. have resulted in lower wages for women and kept their pay lower than men’s.
Government race preferences that give special benefits to companies owned and controlled by minorities discourage business formation with people of another race and discriminate against interracial couples.
Affirmative action puts minorities in elite colleges they can’t handle, whereas they might have thrived somewhere else.
Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders want a wealth tax on billionaires. ‘Eat the Rich’ may sound good to you, but you should know that, of the wealth taxes in 12 European countries in 1990, only three remain. Why? Because people flee. According to the OECD, the wealth tax “was expensive to administer, it was hard on people with lots of assets but little cash, it distorted saving and investment decisions, it pushed the rich and their money out of the taxing countries—and, perhaps worst of all, it didn’t raise much revenue.”
More schools are teaching phonics because the liberals’ favored whole sight reading method doesn’t work for most students and actually cripples some for life. Even the New York Times has had to admit phonics works.
Liberal policies have been in the ascendancy for decades despite evidence right in front of our noses they don’t work and they actually hurt people. Three generations of insanity is enough. It’s time to stop demonizing the political Right which has the best ideas and return to common sense solutions for what ails America.
