PROGRESSIVELY ERODING DEMOCRACY

June 5, 2020

Many states now register applicants for driver licenses as voters. Some of the same states allow non-citizens unrestricted driver licenses. Therefore, non-citizens and even illegal aliens (people not even authorized to be in the country) are registered to vote in our elections as soon as they file an application for a license. Many of the otherwise unauthorized people take advantage of the voting “right” granted via the registration.

*Voting is a right of the citizens of the United States

Mail in ballots, ballot harvesting and voting by proxy are all ways of de-legitimizing our elections and lawmaking structures. They are ripe with fraud, mishandling and gaming the governmental systems that maintain our democracy. They are ways designed to undermine the integrity of our most sacred right as Americans.

Ballot harvesting gives political operatives the opportunity to collect and cull ballots before hand-carrying them to election officials for counting. This practice is known for forged ballots as well as ballots being lost (strategically misplaced) before they can be counted.

There is a valid case to be made for issuing mail-in (aka absentee) ballots. They have worked well in limited cases for service members serving their country outside of their respective precincts. As well, seniors and infirm or otherwise incapacitated citizens benefit from the process. Yet, even within these proportionately few cases, fraud, forgery and lost ballots have blemished the purity of our election process.

The mishandling of ballots from the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2010 presidential race or the more recent South Carolina ballots discovered in Maryland should give caution to voting this way nationally. There is also the current case of a mail carrier in West Virginia charged with election fraud in connection with mail-in ballots.

Cartoon characters, dead persons and non-citizens have been identified as voters in local and national elections. Every time an instance is brought forward it is dismissed by the socialist infiltrators as anecdotal, but collectively the numbers are great enough to change elections in communities and for their federal representatives. Each incident could mean only a few or as many as thousands of errant votes. Voters moving between states or precincts, or owning residences in different precincts sometimes use both addresses and dual registration to vote in two or more districts.

No cash bail is another way the Marxist/socialists are eroding our systems. One might say that it started with the catch and release of illegal aliens and “progressed” to other crimes. Rather than turning lawbreakers around at the border, the illegal entrants are given a notice to appear which most discard as soon as they are out of vision from the issuing agent. The same is happening with other criminals within the once United States. Car jacking, looting (if even pursued to apprehension), theft, burglary, muggings and many other crimes against property and humanity are considered offenses not worthy of law enforcement. This ain’t J-walking folks, these are serious crimes that lead to other and greater crimes.

Even Congress is now voting by proxy; absentee members allowing others to vote in their name. Next, if the socialists get their way, it will be a few members of each state voting on behalf of the citizens, a or a few members of Congress making our laws without floor debate.

Traces of democracy are being eroded and erased daily by the very people sworn to protect it.

IT’S BEYOND POLITICS

February 7, 2020

Politics has always been an adversarial process. It was meant to be. The reason for the three branches of government is to check, recheck and balance the governors of our country. However, the business of politics was never conceived to become so viscous and hateful.

With their hatred for the non-conforming, undiplomatic and forthright president, the Democrats have turned politics, not only in Washington D.C., but throughout the country into a blood sport. They have encouraged Antifa to riot by standing by and allowing the members to assault non-members (actually drawing blood and injuring upstanding citizens) with impunity.

They drew upon ambiguous and undefined language to issue two Articles of Impeachment which were voted on and passed by partisan vote. They have upended the state of politics for coming presidents forever. To identify a president’s thoughts as criminal or misdemeanors of impeachable capacity is very dangerous to the character of government and the nation.

Nancy Pelosi probably best described the Democrat strategy in 2017, <link>

This is not the first time a ranking member or leader in the Democrat controlled House or Senate has foregone the rules of normalcy to achieve an underhanded victory. Harry Reid is a testament to that. He introduced the “nuclear option” to the Senate to block filibuster and discussion of controversial presidential nominees with the exception of Supreme Court nominees. In doing so, he eternally altered voting process of the Senate. He won that round, but the tolerant, understanding and accepting Democrats now cry foul when the Republican majority uses that very move.

Now we have a president who has been “impeached forever” in the Speaker’s words. They have impeached President Trump not for cause, but because. In doing so, they, the majority in the House (this time it’s Democrats) have changed the landscape for the most important action the body can take.

There is no known reason for the abject hatred of President Trump other than the fact that he is President Trump. He defeated the predesignated “Queen of the White House” and that seems to be enough for the Democrats to continue attacking him and obstructing his presidency.

I did not vote for Trump in 2016. I didn’t and don’t agree with much of his direct rhetoric, yet I cannot fault him for his forthrightness and openness. There is no question about his thinking because he shares it loudly and often. This is very unlike any previous politician. But he is not a politician and is not beholden to various lobbying groups or even the pressure of his own party. Those are among the various reasons why he is disliked in Washington. He cannot be influenced with fame or fortune…he had them both before he decided to run for office and will forever be known and wealthy without compromising his integrity, such as it is.

Despite his lack of protocol but given the malicious and nefarious behavior of the Democrats over the past 3+ years, there is no way I will vote to install another. Regardless of the policies professed, I will not vote for a Democrat running for local, county, state and certainly not federal office. If that means voting to re-elect President Trump, I will.

2020 SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES

December 9, 2019

Looking at the candidates to defeat the nationalist currently holding office in D.C., one is bound to see some pretty wild characters and plots to overthrow the people of the United States.

Yes, I called the president a nationalist. I find he is neither a conservative nor a liberal. He might most closely resemble a libertarian, but he is not at all a libertarian. He is a strong defender of the U.S. Constitution, law and order from the military to the local level. He believes in a federal government limited in size and scope that is yet powerful enough to conduct business on behalf of the greater number of citizens throughout the country.

President Trump, as I have stated many times before in my posts, is not the person I would like to have representing my country. He is, however, showing to be the best and most capable person to lead this country at this time.

That said, the field of opposition to him in the 2020 election is bothersome to me and many other citizen patriots. We see the potential of losing the freedoms granted in the Constitution and the threat of forced acquiescence and servitude to an overarching government.

Looking at the remaining field of candidates running under the Democrat party (this is not a typo. I do not believe there is any remaining democracy in the people who call themselves Democrats). What appears on stage and in front of any available “reporter” are a troupe of individuals who proudly voice their will to overthrow our current economic, political and social structures in favor of a governing form known to have failed each and every time it has been attempted throughout history, leaving the citizens humiliated and in abject poverty.

With a population in excess of three hundred million, undermining our capitalist economic system in favor of socialism would not only destroy our country, but cause a reorder of the entire world of countries. It is a step toward globalism that could only ultimately create more warring factions with greater weaponry than exist today,

Just two of the policies proudly offered by the most prominent candidates will bankrupt the country within one four year presidential term. Those policies are open borders and universal health care (Medicare-for-All). Any thinking person can see how inviting the world’s unhealthy to partake of our free medical service would devastate any economic system within a few years, if not a matter of months.

Currently, people of means from around the globe come to America to receive the medical care they cannot get, or cannot get on a life-saving timeline, under the socialist systems of their home governments.

Add to the above proposal giving each person qualifying for any public assistance program (medicaid, SNAP, EBT, WIC, TANF, CHIP, LIHEAP, SSI, Section 8 housing assistance and more) $1,000 per month and you have the makings of a subservient population rather than one of independence offering contributory value.

The candidates, through their like-minded minions, have destroyed or removed from view symbols of our history and chronological writings of our forefathers. By eliminating contemporary journals and rewriting history, it is possible to educate upcoming generations with only one view of the possible. By offering “equality” to all through free entitlements, without a history of how such has destroyed societies, any desired goal is achievable no matter how irrational it is.

If there were another candidate with the mindset and capabilities of the current president, with a more likable persona, he or she would get my vote. As of today, I don’t see that person.

HATE MONGERING

August 12, 2019

The liberal media and Democrat politicians exacerbate every negative situation with vitriolic rhetoric that causes and excites hatred. Sometimes, their actions and wording twist the truth to make it appear negative even when it’s not. Then, when violence occurs, they say the president’s tweets are to blame. Oft ignored is the fact that the statements, those of the msm and their guests, contributors and correspondents place definite divisions on race, religion, politics, gender et al.

Calling for protesters to show up outside a donor’s home in the Hamptons “with pitchforks and torches as one guest did on MSNBC recently does not promote unity and calmness. This was simply because the businessman offered to hold a fundraiser for the president.

Phrases such as “ripping babies from their mother’s arms” that became the meme of the left to describe CBP’s attempts to identify families from child traffickers do not help. Calling those who do not agree with your political views concerning border security “white supremacists” or “extremists” or “Nazis” or “racists” and doxxing them in open forum only incites already angry and unstable people to commit violent acts.

Calling a rifle an “assault weapon” because it is black and looks scary to individuals made fragile by their K-12 education helps the narrative of those who want to eliminate guns. Other weapons that can be, and have been, used to assault the population might be knives, brass (or other hard material) knuckles, rocks, baseball bats, pool cues, pepper spray, acid, etc.

In fact, since the big news stories of El Paso and Dayton, there have been a minimum of three national news stories of knife stabbings. Those, too, were “assaults” with “weapons” where not less than five people died.

Regarding merit based immigration reform as opposed to unchecked illegal migration across our southern border by many hard working but uneducated and indigent individuals and families, Nicole Wallace of MSNBC recently referred to the president as talking about exterminating Latinos. Though walked back later, this type of incendiary speech is not calming to a volatile, demented population looking for a cause to commit violence.

Effective July 1, 2010 a 10% tax was instituted on all tanning salons and businesses that offered tanning services. This was not an equally applied tax on all people or all businesses, it was a direct assault on white people by the Obama administration and enforced under the ACA. Was this a RACIST act?

So, who’s really to blame for the violence and deaths among the citizens and residents of this nation? Is it the president who tweets his beliefs in retaliation against his aggressors, sometimes using foul language? Or, is it the Democrats and their pervasive news arms who broadcast hatred and discontent 24/7 to rile their under educated and angry minions?

DEMOCRAT FREE FOR ALL

July 11, 2019

Candidates on both sides of the political aisle make promises that they never intend to keep. They do so trying to entice voters to “pull the lever” on their behalf. It’s nothing new. However, this round, the pledges and overtures go far beyond logic and reason for anybody that is not of the participation trophy generations. Thinking people must reject the fantasy statements and the candidates who make them in favor of saving our nation and our way of life.

Most of the programs include handouts that make no sense or are so broad as to invite uncontrollable fraud. Each entrant into the clown competition for president has made some offers that sound good to the takers of the nation, but terrible for the producers and can only lead to the collapse of our sovereignty and our democracy.

Aside from consulting the nearest wind sock on any given day or event, there are absurd verbal expulsions from virtually everyone seeking the highest office in the land.

Here are just some of the statements made on the campaign trail:

Proposed “War Tax” on families that don’t have at least one member in the military or having served in the military. Sounds good at the onset, but does not describe how far the family extends. There is no mention about honorable service, just service.

The government cannot keep track of who receives EBT benefits or who gets EIC credit. How can anyone in their right mind expect the government to track who has family members in the military. What happens if John joins the Marines after high school? Is his sister Sally exempt from the tax as long as she lives in the family home? Does the exemption continue after she is married?

At least one of the leftist idiots states loud and clear that if he becomes president, and if you don’t relinquish your weapons, you will be overcome by force and imprisoned. Mr. Swalwell has no respect for the Constitution or the attached Bill or Rights. Like most of those on the debate stage(s) mandated conformity to autocratic demands is the way of the future. Fortunately, Mr. Swalwell’s idiocy became clear to even him.

There is vast support among the Democrat candidates for decriminalizing illegal entry into our country. If that isn’t open borders, nothing is. No borders, no country.

If there is no cost, there is no value!

Almost all have advocated for free college tuition. It is simply an extension of the substandard learning process that has been the norm for the past 50 years or so. Continued indoctrination is necessary for some of the slow learners who were unable to accept Communism as the best socioeconomic system in their first twelve years of public education.

Medicare for all (some candidates include virtually every person within the confines of the 50 states, legal, illegal, temporary or permanent). Why not vacationers here on a visa?. This is inviting everybody with a hangnail to clog waiting rooms across the nation. No problem…the doctor’s office is climate controlled and no one can be turned away! Corey Booker says “It just makes sense”.

Taxpayer paid abortion – No matter how you view abortion, (murder, women’s reproductive rights or simply internal feminine cleansing), if there is no cost for irresponsibility there is no reason to be responsible. Hook up on Saturday night and up to nine months later you can have that growth inside you removed at taxpayer expense.

Voting without I.D. – This is about the most ridiculous thing that has ever been presented to a civilized society. Currently, in many states, there is nothing stopping someone from getting off a plane, a boat or crossing the Rio Grande (aka: Rio Bravo del Norte) into our southern desert on election day from going to the Motor Vehicle Department, getting a driver license to use as I.D., then driving on to the polls and voting. Yet, some of these same idiots want to exclude our military men and women serving outside the country on election day from casting their ballot.

Universal Basic Income – Proposals range from $500/mo. to $1,000/mo. given to every adult person in the U.S. No need to work or produce, the check’s in the mail. Actually, you need not even bother going to your mail box or cashing a check. Completely effortless! A government deposit will be made directly into your bank account on a specific date each month so that you can continue using your EBT card to buy corn chips and beer without interruption.

No consequence for breaking the law. No loss of rights for committing felonies; vote from prison. The Marxist/socialists, whether they say it aloud or not, want to make every non-politician completely beholden to a strong central government. Act the way we say or we’ll take away your subsidies.

Otherwise, all is free!
