• REAGAN Won With This – Are You Better Off Than 8 Years Ago?

    Much has been said by the Main Stream media that the success Mrs. Clinton is having in the black community will propel her to the nomination and the Presidency.  Some black leaders have questioned the idea that black people will vote in mass for Hillary.  I remember the great success that Ronald Reagan had against Jimmy Carter when he asked the American people this simple question, “Are you better off today than you were 4 years ago?”

    Donald Trump or whoever is the Republican nominee, needs to start asking this question every day, “No matter what group you are Black, White, Hispanic, Asian or Native American, are you better off today under Barack Obama and his policies than you were 8 years ago?”

    Do you have a good paying job?  Is your neighborhood secure?  Have you lost a family member or friend or perhaps both to violence? Has your income gone down?  Is it almost impossible for your children to get a good education and find a summer job?

    Some want to make this election about borders and walls, while others want to make it about free this and free that, but never facing up to the challenge of how are we going to pay for it? I could bore you with hundreds of statistics about income, Jobs, National Security, foreign policy and taxes to just name a few out of millions other things we could be thinking about. But these all pale in the face of the most important question, “Are you better off today than you were 8 years ago?” This question scares Democrats because they can’t ask the question.

    When you think about the person that you want to elect for president, do you want four or more years of more of the same of the last 8?  Do you want to continue in creating the Obama legacy or do you want something better?  As you stand in the voting booth getting ready to pull the lever for your candidate for President of United States, stop and think about the question, “Are you better off today than you were 8 years ago”.   Will you be better off for the next four or eight years under the person your thinking about pulling the lever for.

    If you can’t answer yes to this simple question, then you need to pull the lever for somebody else.  I hope Mr. Trump and the other Republican candidates we’ll begin to start asking this question everyday, to every group of people regardless of race, color, creed, or sexual orientation. I believe there are millions of people who will answer “NO”, to the question.  Mr. Trump give Americans a chance to answer the question.  Ask it everywhere you go, start now don’t wait until October.
