The 1 Post Every American Must See Before Voting This November

Share

Ahead of the November election between President Joe Biden and his presumptive Republican opponent, former President Donald Trump, a lot is going to be said.

Undoubtedly, the two campaigns will run ads attempting to paint a positive picture of their candidate as well as negative ads highlighting the lowlights of the opponent.

Very quickly, there will be a flurry of information that will be difficult to differentiate between what matters and what just makes a good talking point.

So let’s keep it simple.

What matters the most to Americans in their choice of president?

According to a Pew Research survey conducted this year, the answer is “strengthening the economy,” with no other issue standing out at the level that American economic success does.

So then, which candidate has done a better job of strengthening the economy?

Writer and analysis Brian Shannon perfectly highlighted the major economic contributions of the Biden administration in one simple social media post on Sunday.

Shannon shared a graphic showing the percentage change in the consumer price index in various categories from January 2020, when Trump was president, to April 2024.

“The effect of inflation,” he wrote.

Motor vehicle insurance is 46 percent more expensive than it was four years ago.

Both gasoline and energy prices are 34 percent higher.

Used cars and trucks cost 29 percent more than in 2020, with food at restaurants up 25 percent.

The image provides other examples, such as shelter and personal care, with an overall CPI increase of 21 percent for that period.

Well, Biden certainly performed badly, but how did Trump do?

Well, a lot better.

Have you had enough of the failed Biden agenda?

When the 45th president took office in 2017, gas was $2.36 per gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In his last week in office in January 2021, it was $2.38.

Under Biden, the price of gas spiked to $4.88 and remains high at $3.52.

A dozen eggs cost $1.60 when Trump took office and only went above $2 twice during his administration, according to Yahoo Finance.

The lowest price Biden has seen is $2.04.

The outlet noted that “Trump oversaw a period of relatively low inflation, and Biden’s term so far has largely been defined by rapidly rising prices and the most painful inflation since the early 1980s.”

While the sitting president is undoubtedly going to spew statistics about how the economy is better than it’s ever been or whatever nonsense his team came up with, the charts tell a simple and true tale.

Americans are struggling to make ends meet under Biden — under Trump, they weren’t.

When casting your vote in November, choose wisely.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
