Are you better off than you were four years ago? Is it easier to go and buy things as it was 4 years ago? Is there more or less unemployment than there was four years ago? Is America as respected as it was 4 years ago? Do you feel America is as safe and strong as it was four years ago?
My father, a lawyer and Republican political thinker, actually wrote this closing for Reagan’s debate. Later on in life he pivoted away from the Republican party, or as he used to say, they pivoted away from him and the traditional centrists. It is time for Independents to pivot back to Democrat in 2020.
