Uncertainty Rules The News

These days you don’t know what the news will bring. Furthermore the latest spate of shoot-from-the-hip fixes take the cake. Learn more in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Pandemic Podcast Series

In addition I’ve been doing a series of podcasts on reactions to the virus.

Old Political World Already Dead

First of all the left-right political spectrum is out of date.

Conservative Versus Liberal? Get Real

Consequently, conservative versus liberal doesn’t even begin to describe what we’re dealing with.

Minimizer In Chief Suddenly Worried

Even more President Trump minimized what became a pandemic from the start. As a result, his supporters parroted what he said with gusto.

Trump went from pointing fingers and calling Coronavirus a hoax, to cowed in one day!

Learn why in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Losing Their Principles For Trump

Conservatives believe in Limited Government or personal freedom, Economic Freedom the US Constitution and above all a debt free future. Moreover the right wing hates deficit spending, the Federal Reserve and Executive Overreach?

Trump Shifts

And yet in a few hours President Trump abandoned conservatives! He proposed a series of policy ideas that should have former and current democratic presidential candidates claiming copyright infringement!

Checks, Deficits, Bail Outs

Especially relevant, perhaps two thousand dollar checks for every American. A trillion dollar bail out package on top of a trillion dollar deficit just for 2020 and 23 trillion in public debt. Using the military. Shutting down private businesses.

Threatening The Federal Reserve Chair

In addition, the president threatened to fire the Federal Reserve Chair because interest rates weren’t being cut far enough, fast enough.

Wall Street Response

Finally the response from Wall Street isn’t good.

Investors want to see the president leading the government to take real action to address a growing crisis.

Never Waste A Crisis

In conclusion, it’s time for questions about the future of the republican party and this president. Remember those Obama Era Memes about not wasting a crisis?

Now they’re being applied to ‘conservatives’.

America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888

Is Populism The Road To Oblivion?

First of all, I’ll say it if no one else will. I think our politics is too focused on ‘the little guy’. Is populism the road to oblivion for us? Learn more in  America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

What’s Populism?

What is Populism? Where did it come from? I’ll tell you in this podcast.

Give The People What They Want, Right?

Certainly populism as a tactic does not have a cohesive ideology. I will point out it’s not about addressing specific issues. It’s about giving the people what they want.

Business As Usual Especially When They Say They It Won’t Be

Moreover I think politicians playing to the cheap seats risk making very bad decisions. Finally, it’s not just politicians.

Voting Against Yourself

It’s especially relevant to remember voters often make choices against their own best interests.

Democrats AND Republicans

Furthermore populism doesn’t call one of the two parties ‘home’. Populism is present in both party’s ‘business as usual’ politicians.

That’s Right…Populism

Consequently when democrats promise free basic incomes, free education and free health insurance. Or when republicans promise trade policies to protect coal miners, steel workers and farmers. It’s all the same. Populism.

A More Powerful Government

Meanwhile it sure seems like this trend leads to a more dangerously powerful and expensive government. Learn more in America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

Banana Republic Or Rome?

Due to masses lining up with their hands out, blaming capitalism or the deep state for all their problems we’re on the road to oblivion. We might end up banana republic, joining the other dead societies in history. Hence, Oblivion.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

Therefore I offer a small quiet voice of protest. Will it get fixed? Not anytime soon I am afraid.

Sorry but…

This just has to run its course.

(Editor’s Note: I refer to William Jennings Bryan as Wilson’s ‘former’ Secretary of State when discussing the election of 1896. Obviously Jennings became Secretary of State much later.)
