Where our nation is headed!
The democrats are crowing about their recent victories at the polls. Nothing new here. In many ways this reversal of fortune for the republicans was inevitable. It was because of the democrats and their 4 “F”s.
The first is FEAR. They accuse the republicans of wanting to take away benefits and rights and even though these are all either lies or impossibilities, the whip up their base and motivate them to vote and encourage others as well.
The second is FALSEHOODS. The democrats campaign on Falsehoods. They are either offers of benefits that cannot ever be made or they are bald faced lies that are so over the top that any semi literate citizen can see through them. However, the rather illiterate base for the democrats: ‘The Gimmie’s’ all follow their words syllable by syllable and swallow every exaggeration and absolute fallacy as if it were the gospel.
The third is FRAUD. By this I am not talking the things you see and hear. I am referring to the dead voting more than once and illegals voting as well as the shenanigans that go on in places like Broward County Florida where boxes of ‘provisional ballots’ were found mysteriously by a teacher the day after the polls closed (guess what party the teacher belongs to) and oh my goodness, these have to be counted even though no one can explain where they came from and should have been taken to.
The last is an easy one. FREEBIES! The democrats promise all sorts of things. Free college. Free healthcare. Forgiving student loans. Tax cuts (remember Bill Clinton after his election in 1992). Fones, food, free housing…..this reads like a wish list for deadbeats. The fact is that the democrats will offer anything that sounds like they care in order to get the votes they need to win.
We laugh at these to an extent but they are real and they are used every election cycle. I would like to know when the republicans decided to stop participating in the political side of elections??? 100 years ago, this standing by idly while your opponent lies and spreads falsehoods would not have happened or been tolerated without a response in kind. Somewhere, sometime, and for what reason I do not know, the republicans decided to get neutered and stop fighting for their constituents and just sit back and suck up all the freebies themselves.
The deplorables managed to get Trump elected. It sure as hell was not the republicans. They got a republican in the white house who started doing the things he promised which were promises made in the past by other republican candidates. After starts doing this, he is literally abandoned by the majority of the congressional republicans. What the hell??????
The problems we face as conservative/libertarians is how do we actually stop this destruction of the Constitution by the active democrats and the passive republicans? This is serious stuff.
I have been through 12 presidential elections and the aftermaths that followed. I have seen our nation descend into one that is filled with non working citizens living off the government and the rights of those who are left are being stripped by the courts constantly. At this time more than 50% receive some sort of government benefit. I am not talking about social security benefits. I am talking food stamps, subsidies, earned income credit. The remaining MINORITY support these benefits and the people who receive them with ever increasing taxes and fees from their governments. This ongoing process does not have a good future and ultimately I fear our nation as founded will be lost to the pandering 4F democrats.
The virtue of the American Experiment was that the founders were looking to empower EVERYBODY and the founding documents of our nation reflect that. They also feared tyranny. Again, the founding documents reflect that. Now we are faced with an aggressive foe in the form of liberal democrats who are dragging this nation into a government controlled socialistic state where independence is not as important as conformity with their rules regarding everything from speech to choices about healthcare and everything else they can think of.
Personally, I do not wish to live in such a place and I am quite certain that I am one of millions who feel this way. I am not interested personally in creating a national movement to resist this process per se, but I am more than aware that if we do not act soon it will be too late.
The vast majority of this nation is red. You can look at maps of the votes cast for any election and see the obvious truth. It is that the coasts and a few metro areas inland control the rest of us. Roughly 5% of the landmass controls the resources of 95% of the nation. The people of the red be damned.
As I said, the time of choosing is coming. We will either resist this usurpation of the rights of millions of hard working, honest, decent caring men, women, and children of our nation or we might as well take our firearms to the police station and surrender them and our free speech as well.
