Let’s be clear right out of the gate here. I’m not going to talk about how Biden can’t remember his middle name, or who he’s married to. I’m talking simply about his policies here, and how they mesh with the feelings of the country.
Now, having said that, I’m fully aware that polls are really the evil genius behind the curtain in our country at the moment. The politicians that follow them and change their direction like a wind chime in a hurricane are useless. They never vote their convictions. In fact, most politicians don’t even have convictions any more. Which is one reason I LOVE people like my Senator, Krysten Sinema, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. They at the very least do have conviction and stick to it. I admire that.
So, here we go. Joe Biden wants to spend trillions of dollars on a bunch of stuff. What kind of stuff? Things like climate change, critical race theory, what should be taught at school versus what should be taught at home. He wants to spend money like crazy…do Americans agree or disagree with him on that?
Well, let’s look. As far as climate change, while about 40% say it’s a big, big deal, almost 60% say that climate change isn’t going to effect their lives in any way during their lifetime. Now, that’s coming from the unwashed masses that don’t have much in the way of unbiased education. It’s been more like indoctrination you’d find in China.
How about another topic? 52% of Americans now feel they disagree with the overall spending of $3.5 trillion, and don’t want Congress to pass the spending bill. That’s a majority that feels we are spending too much, and that they want to see us cut social spending to get our budget back in line, and they blame the inflation rate (now hovering around 5.6% for the month) as the culprit. That’s gotta be a slap in the face to Jokin’ Joe.
Need more proof? 81% of whites, 81% of blacks, and 87% of Hispanics believe that the best place for kids to learn to take pride in their ethnic or racial identity is at home. That means they don’t want ethnic or racial identity to be taught in schools. So much for critical race theory! Not only that, 70% of whites, 69% of blacks, and 70% of Hispanic think the schools these days pay too much attention to the differences between ethnic and racial groups and not enough to what they have in common. Again, that flies in the face of critical race theory. 85% of whites, 84% of blacks, and 78% of Hispanics will go a little further saying it is absolutely essential for public schools to teach kids… that whatever their ethnic or racial background, they are all part of one nation.
Oh, but there’s more! A recent poll found that 80% of respondents opposed using classrooms to promote political activism, 74% opposed teaching that white people are inherently privileged and people of color are inherently oppressed, and 69% opposed schools teaching that America was founded on racism and is structurally racist.
OK, let’s move on from schools. Joe Biden campaigned last year that he could “unite a divided America”. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans have lost faith in him. 64% of the country says we are more divided now than we were under Donald Trump. Only 11% think Biden has kept his promise on this one.
Let’s look at immigration. Rasmussen Reports does a weekly index on the subject. They likened 100 as the baseline number that says the laws are right in line with where they should be. If they are over 100, it means that we need looser immigration laws, and below 100 means we need tighter immigration laws. Currently, for the week of September 27-30, the Rasmussen Reports index dropped from 89.6 to 88.9, a drop of 7/10 of a point in just one week. That means Americans don’t feel Biden is doing enough to keep illegals out of the country, and they want to see more done to tighten immigration policies. That flies in the face of Biden’s open door policy on our southern border.
Do any of these polls mesh with Joe Biden’s view of America? I’d say it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, Hispanic, Republican, Democrat, educated or not. Most Americans don’t view the programs Joe Biden is touting as anything that we need to be doing. Here we have a guy that says he can bring people together, but what he’s actually doing is tearing the country apart with his ideas. That in my world is a very dangerous man.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
