Our next meeting… WEDNESDAY, August 10TH!

President Biden is running a foot race. It is a race that he did not intend to run and—like so much—most certainly does not understand. It is a race that Americans should hope he does not win. It is a foot race to determine which US President will be historically regarded as having been the worst since World War II: Jimmy Carter or Joe Biden. And a big part of that is because, as James Carville used to say, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

At the next meeting of The Lincoln Society, we will objectively review the positive and negative aspects of this tumultuous economy. We will examine both monetary policy and fiscal policy—including the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” which has passed the Senate 51-50 and will most likely be passed by the House on Friday and signed by the President almost immediately thereafter.

The objective of this analysis is not to brew despair. In fact, I expect you to leave with a greater understanding and a sense of inherent optimism, optimism that America will survive President Biden and the ridiculous policies which have come to dominate his party. After all, we survived President Carter. Perhaps another Ronald Reagan will rise to take the reins of our country. At the very least, we as grassroots conservatives must understand, protect, and pursue economic liberty.

Remember, Democrats feel while Republicans think.

We look forward to seeing you this month! And, don’t forget two things… we’re at Spring Creek BBQ in McKinney, and tell a friend!
