Electing Dems will drive up cost of living

DEAR EDITOR:

If Democrats win in November, here is what to expect: higher taxes, even on your 401k. First, you lost your pension, now they want more of this. They will change the retirement rules for you in the middle of the game.

The Green New Deal will take the “green” right out of your wallet! No fracking will bring much higher energy costs, especially gasoline for your SUV and pickup truck. The cost of natural gas to heat your home will go through the roof. Remember paying those winter heating bills back in the ’70s and ’80s that were in the hundreds of dollars each month? Fracking can be done safely without damaging the environment under the proper laws and government supervision. Congress must stop trying to impeach Donald Trump and do its job!

Kiss the Second Amendment goodbye. They’re coming after your guns with executive orders. By the time this gets straightened out in court, it will be too late.

Many jobs will go back to China. Do you really think Joe Biden will stand up to China? I don’t. Where will your kids work? Your grandkids? They could probably get jobs as police officers because, thanks to the Democrats and national media, no one wants to do that anymore. So much for law and order.

The economy will falter under all the red tape and new regulations. Unemployment will be very high. The printing of paper money to pay for all of the “free” stuff will cause a big decline in the buying power of the dollar. What you could buy for $1 in 2000 now costs $1.50 in 2020. The higher debt load the country will carry will rapidly accelerate the decline of the dollar, so get ready. In other words, the price of everything will go up dramatically.

Please don’t vote based on the candidate’s personality. I don’t like Donald Trump either. He has a very abrasive personality and an ego and pride like I’ve never seen. I hate his name calling of anyone who attacks him, but it is a no-brainer that the cost to live in America under this Republican president will be much, much less than it will be with Joe Biden and Democrats.

If you’re going to vote Democrat across the board, then be ready for a very expensive life and do not complain about it, as you have been warned what is coming.

Please research what I said here, and you will find it all to be true.
