President Trump Slams Socialism: 'America Was Founded on Liberty And Independence'

Beth Baumann, February 7, 2019

One of the most defining moments of President Donald Trump's State of the Union address was when he slammed socialism, a clear reference to freshmen members of Congress who have called for higher taxes and Medicare For All. 

"Here in the United States, we are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free," Trump said.

He also defended the principles America was founded on.

"America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free," he explained. "America will never be a socialist country."

The future of our country is at stake. We have new generations who are so focused on leveling the playing field and taking from others that they're forgetting America's founding principles.

Naturally, CSPAN panned in on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has become the face of socialism in America.

Are You Kidding Me? That's Why Kamala Harris Shook Her Head During Trump's State Of The Union

President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union in front of hostile Democrats who sat and seethed through most of his speech. Itís been two years and they still cannot get over the fact that Hillary Clinton is not the president. She will never be president. She will never deliver a State of the Union address. Move on, folks. 

As Democrats rolled their eyes over wages growing, job creation, and record low unemployment, one prominent Democrat and 2020 candidate was seen shaking her head once the president began speaking about the border crisis. There were audible groans from Democrats who think this is a manufactured crisis, even though Obama said the exact same thing when he was president.

Itís not a secret that Trump wants a border wall and has an aggressive border security agenda as part of his immigration policy. Itís a policy thatís sensible but loathed by Democrats, though they had supported similar policies under Obama and Bill Clinton. 

Sen. Kamala Harris, who is already trying to solidify the far left vote with her call to destroy private health care insurance, was seen shaking her head when Trump said,   ďNow is the time for the Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.Ē I canít wait to hear how she will defend this, folks. Youíre against this, youíre shaking your head over this Ö are you kidding me?  

Editors Corner

Spring arrives in six weeks and I for one can't wait. With what's waiting to come out of the ground this spring and summer in Locust I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve. You know coming into Locust at night from Midland you cross Rocky River come through the intersection of Reid Mine Road and Pine Bluff Road and begin to see lights. When you make that last turn and over the last hill you see the city we call home. Restaurants, Retail, other amenities that make Locust a great place to live and raise a family. You can go in any direction from Locust and not find what we have to offer until you reach Albemarle, Charlotte, Concord or Monroe. Locust continues to lead the pack in our neck of the woods to provide its citizens with the convinces that only can be found in the larger cities. Thank the folks at city hall for a job well done. I'm proud to call Locust my home.
