When You Reward Bad Behavior You Get More of it

DELRAY BEACH, FL – After listening to the Democrat candidates for president, you’d think that anyone who enters our country illegally should not be treated as “criminals”, but should be embraced as future American citizens. In other words, they want to reward people who broke our immigration laws with sanctuary and possible future citizenship. That rewards bad behavior and is an open invitation to future law breakers to come to the United States and be welcomed with “freebies” and benefits that even some our own citizens are not eligible for. That’s a recipe for national disaster, and those Democrat candidates are championing that behavior.

I don’t know what these candidates are thinking, but do they really think the American voting public will go for this lax immigration policy?

So far, after four debates the big winner has to be President Donald Trump.  What have these Democrat candidates proposed that helps the re-election of President Trump? Here’s a list of what they have proposed:

  • Free college for everyone
  • Wipe out of existing student debt
  • A $15 government mandated minimum wage
  • Disband ICE and the U.S. Border Patrol
  • Elimination of all fossil fuels in 10 years
  • Rejoin the Paris Climate Accords
  • Raise income taxes on everyone
  • Medicare for all and elimination of private insurance plans
  • Impeach President Trump
  • Etc., Etc.

Do these positions and proposals really resonate with the voters across the country (excluding the East and West coasts)? I think not, as the majority of people are not stupid and susceptible to the pander politics of these Democrat politicians. People do not want to cash-in our capitalist system for a socialist system where the government controls our lives from cradle to grave.

President Trump, the most maligned president in our modern history, has proven that he is a leader (not a Pope) for all citizens, even though his haters and the news media have labeled him a racist, a bigot, a traitor, and a pawn of Russia. Can you imagine if he was treated with some semblance of respect and support for his sensible proposals, what he might have been able to accomplish for the good of the people of the United States over and above his successes these past 2 1/2 years?  The visceral hatred, by the Democrats and the “fake news” media, has been driven by an extreme case of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome)

Who are the biggest losers of this syndrome, the American people, that’s who. When all you have to offer is to pander to the various sub-groups of the electorate, you know that will be the impetus of a Trump second term.

So, as the headline of this editorial states, when you reward bad behavior you’ll get more bad behavior, and the voters will relegate the proponents of these inane policies to the ash bin of history.
