Building Back to Broke

May 21, 2022

Historians indicate that in September of 476 AD, the greatest empire ever to rule the earth ended. The Roman Empire was one of the greatest and most influential civilizations and lasted for over 1000 years. But you see, what many people don't know is what caused it to fall. No, believe it or not, Joe Biden wasn't alive back then - but you see, the corrupt principles and absolute disregard for practicality and corrupt political policies led to Rome's destruction. 

For generations, Rome was engaged in wars across its vast empires, stretching its military resources so thin that it opened to invasions. 

During these exact times, Rome suffered financially, hemorrhaging money and overspending in the wrong areas - oppressive taxation and inflation had widened the gap between rich and poor through the government's influence on free-market economies and trade. As a result of the increased tax, many businesses within Rome, who were the employers and financiers of the Roman government, fled the empire's confines to escape the government's oppressive financial onslaught. 

During Rome's expansion, slave labor was the driving force of manufacturing. But, as military resources emptied and the government overspent and neglected its true purpose, Rome's workforce was depleted. The final blow to the Roman economy was the direct result of other empires that rose that disrupted Roman trade throughout the world. 

Why do I tell this story - very simply put, today, America is in a severe and purpose-driven Democrat decline. Our president and our government have manifested the fall of this great nation. What's worse is that many in our country, but sheer ignorance or lack of caring, are too blind to see just how bad the blows of Biden and his Democrat Party are. 

Since taking office, I have preached that liberal policies will kill our nation, and you know what, I was right. Like so many other conservatives, we know what works and what doesn't for America. A free-market economy, low taxation policies with limited government spending, and global interference keep America safe and prosperous. 

The old saying goes, when in Rome, do as Romans do. But I'm here to tell you that America needs to understand history, for if not, we are doomed to repeat it. Leading up to his fall in 476 AD, Romans let their government overstretch and overspend their country into despair, and in 2022, if we do not take back the country, we too, as Americans, will suffer the same fate.
