Allen West “Eye-opening: ONE number shows how crucial it is for GOP to win in 2016”

Welcome to the dumbing down of these United States of America — horribly true with even more horrific ramifications.


As Written By Allen B. West:

The current presidential election cycle has become more reality TV than anything else. And again, I’m not paying much attention to the contest within America’s new Socialist Party between an avowed socialist and a sociopathic liar, just like the one occupying the White House.

Apparently all these years of MTV Real World, Real Housewives, and adult cartoons have resulted in an electorate more interested in one-liners and sound bites within 140 characters. We have an education system that teaches how to take tests, not develop critical thinking skills. We have so many serious issues, yet clearly serious policy solution discussion isn’t what appeals to the base emotion. We’re living in the days of Comidus and “panem et circenses” – and sadly to many people have no idea what I just wrote or how it relates.

Welcome to the dumbing down of these United States of America — horribly true with even more horrific ramifications.

This past Saturday I shared the fourth quarter, 2015 GDP numbers: an anemic 1 percent. Today I have even worse statistics about our struggling economy.

As reported by, “The United States has now gone a record 10 straight years without 3 percent growth in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), according to data released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The BEA has calculated GDP for each year going back to 1929 and it has calculated the inflation-adjusted annual change in GDP (in constant 2009 dollars) from 1930 forward. In the 85 years for which BEA has calculated the annual change in real GDP there is only one ten-year stretch—2006 through 2015—when the annual growth in real GDP never hit 3 percent. During the last ten years, real annual growth in GDP peaked in 2006 at 2.7 percent. It has never been that high again, according to the BEA.”

Simply put, the last time America was even close to 3 percent GDP was in the final year before the Democrats took over the House and Senate, the 2006 mid-term election. And certainly, President Obama cannot claim that the economy has improved under his tenure of Obamanomics.
