How America Will Win the Next 100 Years

What makes America win? Use any measuring stick and you will find the United States leads the way. We are number one in opportunity, quality of life, access to healthcare, academics, and diversity in intellectual and political thought -- we even lead the world in dog and cat ownership.

American competitiveness is a topic President Trump made a cornerstone of his campaign in 2016 and still talks about almost daily. How often do we hear him tout that under his leadership: “America is winning again!” It’s a message the President has stuck to, and we see evidence of regularly. There’s perhaps no better example of this than the President’s announcement Sunday that the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had been killed by American Special Forces.

But American superiority is not a message we have heard from the Democrats running for president. What’s worse is that it seems to be a notion they outright reject.

For example, Beto O’Rourke previously stated, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” meanwhile, Andrew Yang is literally giving away money to voters. Bernie Sanders has reached the point where he can’t even be bothered to try explaining how to pay for his policies anymore.

A common thread to American success is that we win when we let our people lead, not those in power. All 18 -- or is it 17 now? -- Democrats running for President back a philosophy where the solution to any problem facing American society is a law, a regulation, or a government program. The core challenge that Democrats face is they don’t actually believe in America.

An October 24th Quinnipiac poll has Elizabeth Warren at 28 percent -- a 7-point lead over second place Joe Biden. No other candidate in the poll tops 15 percent, setting up a Biden versus Warren battle. Biden against Warren is an odd pairing, whose supporters come from distinctly different wings of the Democrat Party. Biden is the flag bearer for the party establishment who promotes an...
