Americans Have Lost Hope, Biden Is Solely to Blame

An alarmingly vast number of Americans are pessimistic about the future of our country.

A recent poll found that nearly 80 percent of American voters say the country is in a state of decline, and that pessimism runs even deeper than the state of our nation overall.

According to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, 75% of Americans are pessimistic about their family’s financial situation heading into 2022.

That includes 81.9% of Independents, 89.4% of Republicans, and a whopping 59.6% of Democrats.

The mainstream media is trying to pass off these dismal numbers as matters of perception.

The economy isn’t really tanking, they argue. At the very least, it’s going to get better soon.

The truth is, as long as Joe Biden is in the White House, our country’s economic woes are here to stay.

Biden’s failed policies have resulted, predictably, in our country’s current inflationary spiral upward. He pumped money into the economy with two massive spending bills and signaled his intention to pass even more.

"Build Back Better" didn’t work out, but the damage was already done.

After characterizing inflation as "transitory" for months (likely at the behest of the Biden administration), the Fed acknowledged reality long after the window had closed for making pain-free corrections. Now their announcements of multiple rate hikes in 2022 are contributing to the slide of a stock market that has had its worst start of a year since 2016.

Supply chains still haven’t gotten back on track, and Biden’s efforts to ease that problem have failed. After gleefully announcing his plan to keep the Los Angeles port open 24/7, The Wall Street Journal reported that the move "barely made a ripple."

Now, just as the Fed threatens to send our nation into a recession, Biden has announced that he is continuing his campaign to get Americans fired.

The Supreme Court struck down OSHA’s unconstitutional emergency order that would have forced private businesses (with at least 100 employees or more) to vaccinate their employees.

In response, Biden’s OSHA has announced that it will continue to pursue a mandate through the agency’s normal rulemaking process.

In other words, they’re going back to the drawing board to try to make the vaccine mandate permanent.

I wish I could believe that the Biden administration will see the suffering of the American people and change course. But that’s not going to happen, either.

White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki said in October that Americans aren’t noticing rising prices. She is, perhaps, too preoccupied with her kickboxing classes and margaritas to notice those prices herself.

The president is either blind or unwilling to acknowledge the mess he’s made. He keeps insisting, despite all evidence to the contrary, that America’s economy is booming.

In December, he dismissed concerns about inflation because "every other aspect of the economy is racing ahead."

"It’s doing incredibly well. We’ve never had this kind of growth in 60 years," he said, calling skyrocketing gas prices a "bump in the road." Of course, he omitted that one of his first acts as president was to cut America’s energy independence by canceling the Keystone XL pipeline.

Just this week, Biden took a sad and hilarious shopping trip to a Capitol Hill store to highlight, as the Associated Press put it, "the healthier parts of the economy."

The president purchased a $48 hoodie, a $68 necklace, and a $20 mug with Kamala Harris’s face on it.

A true man of the people.

Needless to say, all of this spells trouble for the Democrats in the midterms.

People vote their pocketbooks, and no amount of political spin or photos change what Americans are seeing happen with their finances.

Hope is the fuel of popular political movements, and the Biden administration has done its best to drain the American people of hope.

Americans won’t vote for a candidate they believe has tanked the economy.

They’re going to vote for change, and right now, that change benefits the Republican Party.

Whether or not the GOP can answer the call remains to be seen.

There's a difference between garnering support because voters are angry at Democrats, versus getting that support and actually holding on to it, because you have a vision for the country, one inspiring hope.

Hope in the form as an attractive alternative to Biden’s failed presidency.

The former will bring a one-term block to the disastrous progressive agenda, the latter can bring substantial, generational change restoring our nation and returning optimism to the greatest nation on earth.

America deserves the latter.

We can have it if we demand it from political candidates seeking our support.
