Patriots want to make sure that only people authorized to vote get to exercise that privilege. We want every vote to count and every eligible person to vote only once. We want each vote recorded and counted correctly. It’s pretty simple stuff. Why would anybody complain about honesty and accountability?

Every election we hear from (primarily) the Democrat party officials and handlers that “this here voter fraud thing that the Republicans keep bringing up is just to keep certain people from voting”. The poor, the elderly and minorities, Democrats say, will be disenfranchised if they are required to prove who they are. It’s an outrage to require identification at the polls.

We also hear about certain precincts having a greater than 100% voter turnout or that there was not one Republican vote in a certain county or precinct where up to 35% of the voter registrations are for Republicans.

There have also been numerous first hand stories by voters who have seen their vote for a particular person immediately change to his or her opponent or that their YES vote turned into a NO vote right before their eyes. No matter how many times they tried to correct the action, the machine would change their vote. In general, but certainly not always, the Democrat party, candidate or liberal issue is the lucky recipient of the electronic “error”.

Enter Bernie Sanders. Bernie and team are very, very concerned about the new tabulation platform developed by Microsoft for the Iowa Caucuses. The mobile app presented by Microsoft is to record the results of hundreds of caucuses and precincts and forward them to party headquarters for final tabulation. The app is meant for use by both parties, but the suspicion of wrongdoing this time is all on Sanders’ side.

Why? Why might there be a concern about program coding at this point?

Well, it seems Bernie and company recognize that Microsoft has, over the years, donated millions of dollars to Hillary, her various campaigns and political causes and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. For some unfounded reason, Bernie and his staff feel that there might be some tainting of the results of the caucuses; some bias perhaps on behalf of his primary opponent.

Keeping with his beliefs, the self described Democratic Socialist, thinks there’s a possibility that money could influence an election outcome.  He thinks that the billionaire class and corporate powers might try to hijack democracy.

Go figure. Bernie now sees the possibility of election fraud, and this is only the first vote of the primary cycle. Hillary’s campaign staff, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC party bosses again laugh at the possibility of voter fraud.

Over the past seven years, and even before that, the federal administrative bureaucracy has grown and grown. Now, you have another new agency to usurp your tax dollars and cause greater borrowing from our enemies – and I don’t mean just Hillary’s and Barack’s Republican opposition this time.

With the formation of each new federal entity, there is office space to be leased or purchased, desks and other furniture to fill the space.  There are people to hire, pay, allow expense accounts, provide health care for, and continue paying when they leave their post. Either they receive ongoing retirement pay or separation pay or both, but they still get paid after leaving the job.

This time it is the creation of the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB). The ineptness of the Federal Investigation Services (not to be confused with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI) apparently didn’t have a large enough staff and management team to foolishly spend enough of your hard-earned money. Thus, $97 million more of your money is now going to an expanded but still ineffective and inept background check and data security agency.

Liberals never think in terms of streamlining, efficiency, accountability and responsibility. They only, and always, seek ways to spend more of your money and employ greater mediocrity.

Got a problem? Hey, that gives us the opportunity to add a new division or agency or bureaucratic offshoot with little oversight that’s even more intrusive.  We guarantee the new entity will only make your life more uncomfortable and more costly. We’ll give it a cool name that sounds like it may actually do something. Don’t fret though, we’ll keep the bumbling know-for-naughts employed that couldn’t do the job in the first place to make the unemployment numbers look better. In fact, we’ll hire more!

Pay attention now! This new taxpayer burden is in addition to Atty Gen. Loretta Lynch’s request for $80 million.  That money is to implement the invasive and unmanageable background checks that President Obama has deemed into existence by Executive Order.

Even with the new agency at full staffing with morning donuts and coffee provided, there is still no guarantee that unvetted “refugees” and illegal aliens from around the world will be properly scrutinized. Many illegal aliens and refugees are allowed to remain in the U.S. without the government verifying their full names, medical or global criminal history.

Two thousand more daydreaming, porn watching government pencil pushers will still authorize full citizenship benefits to 90% of the gang members, cartel bosses or psych ward escapees applying for federal positions or gun permits.  It will, however, take the U.S. one step closer to the financial meltdown we see in Greece and Italy.

It’s all in how you present it to the deaf and blind. Gun control is now gun safety. That way confiscation can occur in the name of protecting the populace.

As the sage orator of the Democrat party, Nancy Pelosi, so eloquently put it,“Well, I am a strong supporter of gun safety. I think almost everybody in our caucus would support — I don’t know that the president said ‘gun control.’ Because we don’t even — we are talking about responsible, reasonable, common sense background checks. Overwhelmingly the American people support that.”

I couldn’t help but notice that Hillary, during last Sunday night’s emphatic voice event, kept referring to common sense gun safety. It’s like the progressive left cannot say what they actually mean because even the public educated commoners will recognize the idiocy of their ideas.

According to the wacko left, gun safety is for no law-abiding citizen to own one. That is, unless they are protecting the President, his or her family, member of congress or the Hollywood elite or… Criminals will still have them because – well, they’re criminals.

Hell, even our military forces, trained in the proper use of weaponry are not allowed to have a side arm on base. And, they’re considered by the current tyrannous cabal to be potential terrorists after leaving the military.

During Bill Clinton’s reign in the 1990s the slogan of disguise was “it’s for the children”. It didn’t take long for people to realize the duping that was reducing their disposable income was newspeak for we’re going to unnecessarily tax the crap out of you with semi-believable falsehoods. We the People lost money and the children gained little to no benefit. BTW, government employees received substantial pay increases during that period. I guess it was for their children.

Even the word “progressive” is cover speak for socialist. The substance of the name has radically changed since its inception as government verbiage. Originally, it stood for eliminating corruption in government. Today it seems to be code for deceive and cajole the masses to benefit the elite overlords.

When the needy recognize that the war on poverty is covert language, doublespeak, for simply making them more comfortable and more controllable in their misery, they will change their voting patterns. That will mean disaster for the Democrat party which must keep them dependent on government. However, as long as public schools impart enough politically correct, biased and deceptive information it will keep them in check from an early age through mid-teens under the pretext of education.

Despite employers and industry investors trying very hard to grow business and hire workers, the federal government is constantly in the way. Obama’s desire to create “clean room” atmospheric conditions across the globe is one way he has personally stymied that growth. Under his watch of seven years now, the massive and oppressive EPA (Employee Purging Agency), has instituted myriad job killing regulations. To comply with his fairyland ideals, companies must spend time, energy, production hours and money on fantasy projects to purify the environment rather than producing product and hiring workers.

He has broken the hopes of employment or re-employment for over a third of the potential citizen workerforce by flooding the market with foreigners, some illegal and some on H-1B visas. Now he is ready to collapse the economy of the states hardest hit by his actions with a mandate that they subsidize the pay for men and women returning to the labor force.  Let’s see now…the bulk of the employee tax revenue goes to the federal government.  But the states must subsidize the wages of returning employees.  Okay, yeah, that sounds fair to me.

It is hard to tell if his attempt to micro-manage the U.S. job market and economy is failing out of ignorance or if it is suceeding as purposely planned.  Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Frances Fox Piven, Richard Cloward, Karl Marx, Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers among others would agree and even applaud the outcomes.

Everything he has tried to “fundamentally change” has turned out poorly for the patriotic American people. He has decimated the top echelon of the military and reduced our security capabilities, butchered the coal industry and he has created more needy and dependent families than many third world countries. His “shovel ready” projects to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure never existed and the appropriated money was superfluously wasted. The agencies under his control have instituted and enforced fees, taxes and fines that stifle business growth. His presidency is mentored and influenced by Marxist, Socialist and Communist ideologues, lobbyists and leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. He has caused our allies to question our trustworthiness while he appeases our most dangerous enemies.And the list goes on…

Under his tenure, and due primarily to his policies, the recession has been unnecessarily extended. Many of the better paying jobs requiring skill, education and experience have left our shores for more stablity. The remaining positions are now often filled by part time workers in order to avoid the burden of Obamacare. Employees work less, earn even less proportionally (approximately 10% less hourly) and are generally less well off than those in the same positions just ten years ago.

Yet, he is “confident that the State of our Union is strong”.

Raising the minimum wage is a prime example of how our economy is in recovery and beginning to flourish. NOT!

One prime example that the left loves to sling crap at is WalMart. Last year WalMart announced that they would be raising wages for those employees paid at the federal (or state in some cases) minimum wage. These are the most needy and in many cases the least skilled of all employees in any industry.

The new minimum wage announced was $9.00, or $1.25 per hour above the federal minimum. By February of this year, 2016, the proposed wage is to be $10.00 per hour. Well…that is for the people who are still employed. According to the current schedule, the retail giant is closing 269 outlets globally on or by January 28. Approximately 150 of which are in the U.S.

With a per store average employment force of about 60 FTE (full-time equivalent) positions, that means a considerable bump to the touted 5% unemployment rate. Many of each store’s positions are part time meaning somewhere between 9,000 and 13,000 U.S. workers from Alaska to Puerto Rico will be idled.

Though WalMart executives claim the move is to “sharpen their portfolio”, it is truly so that they can remain afloat in the economic recovery that Obama lauds. In the fourth quarter of last year, Starbucks also closed 23 La Boulange locations along with two manufacturing facilities. That put a few people out of work, too. Kmart, Sears and JCPenney are following suit by closing locations or folding the businesses completely.  Yeah, we’re rolling now!

As the stock market tanks and oil becomes unworthy of extraction, you can listen to the politicians or open your eyes to the truth and adjust your finances and your lives accordingly. Good luck making the right choice!

Obama’s remaking of America has been very good for the super wealthy. They have flourished. The rest of us…eh, not so much.
