Don’t Let the Political Melodrama Obscure the President’s Economic Accomplishments

In the midst of all the drama involving charges of “racism” and “Russia collusion”, some of Donald Trump’s chief economic accomplishments can get overlooked or lost. Time for a review…

He has accomplished more in two years of the presidency than Obama did in eight
Trump is a professional businessman and super-achiever focused on getting good things done as cost-effectively and quickly as possible.

The President is unlike traditional politicians who promise a lot but accomplish very little, while striving for popularity and winning their next election.

A very significant President Trump accomplishment was the largest tax cut since President Reagan. The top tax rate on business has been reduced from 35% to 21%, thus making America a more attractive place to build a business.

America’s booming, unprecedented prosperity during this President Trump era is the result of many things – not the least of which is Trump’s slashing of unnecessary federal regulations and bureaucratic red tape.

The President’s intense action early in his administration exceeds that of any president in American history. His slashing of unnecessary regulations is saving American businesses MORE THAN $18 billion a year in costs. Clearly, this action has liberated our competitive, free-market, capitalistic economy and political system – for the benefit of working Americans and retirees.

Whether you like Trump personally or not, his professional, business-like approach is effective. Unlike his Leftist critics, who are guided primarily by emotion and big government control (Fascism), Trump is guided by accomplishment, problem-solving, and cost-effectiveness.

*The American-Way ― *The American Prosperity Machine:
Traditional Judeo/Christian principles and values . . . the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness . . . freedom of speech, action, religion and family governance . . . an educated and informed society . . . freedom from gender and racial discrimination . . . affordable healthcare . . . the rule of Constitutional Law . . . the peaceful settlement of disputes . . . honest elections and presidential and congressional leadership . . . patriotic, truthful, checked-&-balanced, limited government . . . a strong military . . . cost-effective national defense . . . secure borders . . . the right of citizens to own and bear arms . . . free, competitive markets and institutions . . . properly-regulated free-enterprise . . . balanced trade . . . private property rights . . . low cost, domestically supplied energy and natural resources . . . controlled immigration . . . individual responsibility and ingenuity . . . entrepreneurialism . . . businesses and enterprises that exist to meet the needs, wants and expectations of customers, suppliers, employees, and communities . . . a strong work ethic . . . full employment . . . fair pay . . . appropriate safety nets . . . low taxes . . . a strong, reliable currency . . . financial availability, mobility, and responsibility (balanced budget, minimal debt) . . . Competitive, Free-Market, Free-Enterprise, Constitutionally Controlled Government . . . and American Exceptionalism.

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote truths and better ways – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
