What Do The 2018 Midterm Election Results Mean?

Kevin Felts at the Angelina River

The 2018 midterm elections have come and gone, and Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives. What is one of the first things Democrats are talking about, gun control. Now that Democrats are in control of the house some of them are saying gun control will be passed.

However, GOP still controls the senate.

President Trump is unlikely to sign any serious gun control bills.

Democrats from gun friendly conservative states know they voter base does not want gun control.

With all of that in mind, I doubt any type of gun control will pass. This is mostly political posturing to make the far left happy.

Gun Control

As of when this post was posted I am 50 years old and have been watching politics since the late 1980s. I have various gun magazines from the 1980s and 1990s talking about serious gun control issues of the time. So I know the ups and downs of the gun control debate.

Agenda of the Democratic Socialist Party of America

Kevin Felts political commentator

Took time Friday (November 2, 2018) to vote against the Democratic Socialist Party of America, also known as the Democrat Party.

When I hear people say they are resisting Trump, what “exactly” are they resisting? Balanced trade? Jobs? Secure borders? It is estimated 1,000 manufacturing jobs are being created everyday. One of those jobs was mine.

A record number of people are employed thanks to Trumps policies on domestic production and balanced trade. Yet, people want to resist Trump, which means the are resisting jobs? The people who resist Trump resist buying a home, buying a car, and having a family? Or maybe they are resisting the idea that people do not need government handouts?

Democrats thrive when people are in poverty. There is an old saying – “People willingly turn to socialism. Communism is taken by force.” To get people to vote for socialism all they have to do is spend enough time living in poverty. Take away financial hopes and dreams, and people will generally vote for Socialist policies.

With the Affordable Care Act raising the price of healthcare, but subsidizing health insurance policies, people are being trained to accept government help. The idea of turning to the government for help is a new idea brought forth by Democrat policies starting with passage of welfare laws. Rather than telling people to pull themselves up by their boot straps, just get on welfare, food stamps, public housing… etc.

Democrats Voting Against Their Best Interest

Kevin Felts political commentator

There is a common question democrats like to throw to Republican voters – “Why do you vote against your best interest?” Meaning, why do Republican voters vote against socialism, and socialist policies? For one, one idiots vote for socialism, which is first cousins to communism and fascism.

There is an old saying that goes something like this – “People willingly turn to socialism, communism is taken by force.”

During difficult financial times, people willingly turn to socialist policies for help, such as public housing, food stamps, social security disability… etc. Eventually, the socialist government gives way to communism to keep the people under control.

During good financial times, and people have jobs and expendable income, voters reject socialism.

To achieve socialism the democrat party wants a stagnated economy, and free trade policies. American workers can not compete against a worker in China, or other low wage nations. Thus, factories move to China to exploit cheap labor. This results in the middle class losing ground, and wage stagnation. As the middle class dwindles and people lose jobs, they are more likely to vote for socialist policies.

Donald Trump Is a Threat to Democrat Socialist Agenda

Next Civil War Will Be Over Socialism

Kevin Felts political commentator

Does anyone know the back story of how the Eighteenth Amendment (Prohibition) was passed? Most people think the Eighteenth Amendment was introduced, passed, and was later repealed. However, there is a long story leading up to getting the Eighteenth passed.

Years before the Eighteenth amendment was introduced into congress, there was a grassroots movement to get pro-Prohibition people elected to various positions in the state and federal levels. So when the Eighteenth amendment was introduced into congress, the people promoting the agenda were pretty certain the amendment would pass. Then there was the mass propaganda spread by people promoting the Prohibition agenda.

It would appear leftists are taking the game plan that worked with Prohibition and applying it to modern politics. Rather than alcohol, the left is taking a stand on social issues, such as income inequality. Just as alcohol was blamed for social ills, Capitalism is blamed for the ills, which plague society.

Socialism

There Is No War On The Poor

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

One of the common fear mongering tactics Democrats love to use, is to tell low income people Republicans hate them. This creates a us versus them tactic that allows democrats to thrive.

Socialist Democrats go on to tell low income people how Republicans want to see poor people starve and have their benefits taken away. Again, all lies.

The only “war” going in is a war on laziness. Welfare should not be a career path. Nor should generations of families be raised on welfare. To get people off welfare, welfare should be as uncomfortable as possible. This means just the very bare basics.

Chances are, if someone qualifies for welfare, they qualify for free college through the local community college. If someone is in public housing, why aren’t they attending community college? The answer suggest they are to lazy to better themselves.

Democrats Are The Party Of Hate

What to Expect in the 2018 Midterm Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

What can we expect to see in the 2018 midterm elections? Chances are democrats will be handed a stunning defeat in the 2018 midterm elections. Why? Because democrats have no platform.

Rather than addressing the economy and healthcare reform, democrats are focused solely on assassinating Trumps character.

Democrats have a chance to work with a president who wants to do what is best for the United States. He wants to address real health care reform. What are democrats doing? They are fighting him tooth and nail.

If a democrat president wanted to change the Affordable Health Care Act, democrats would be all for it. However, when a Republican wants to address healthcare, Democrats fight with everything they have.

President Trump has tried to work with democrats on various issues, and the democrats have refused. Bring the nation to a grinding halt is not going to help them in the 2018 midterm elections.

States Going Broke

Democrats Continue With The Russian Narrative

Kevin Felts political commentator

Democrats continue to play the Russian narrative. Meaning, they refuse to accept voters rejected the progressive ideas of the Democrat party.

Some recent events:

Rudy Giuliani may be joining the Trump team.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) sued President Trump and Wikileaks.

The DNC is claiming President Trump colluded with the Russians so Trump would win the 2016 presidential elections. However, President Trump has been investigated for almost two years, and so far no evidence has been found.

Some people may say, “No evidence “yet” has been found.” Consider this – After the Vegas shooting by Stephen Paddock, just hours after the shooting the FBI said there was no connection with the Islamic State.

It took the FBI just hours to clear Stephen Paddock of any connection to the Islamic State, yet President Trump has been under investigation for almost two years. So either the FBI was lying about Stephen Paddock and any ties to the Islamic State, or there the investigation in Trump and Russia is nothing more than a witch hunt.

Let’s take a few minutes and talk about why Democrats lost over 1,000 state seats between 2008 – 2016, and why they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

Democrats Continue Blatant Racism

Syrian Gas Attacks: Why Survivalist Prep

Kevin Felts political commentator

Want to know why survivalist prep? Look no further than the Syrian gas attacks in April of 2018. The chemical weapons attacks on civilians in Syria is an excellent example of why survivalist prep, this is the reason why we exist.

Not that chemicals weapons would be used in mass on the United States, but the use of chemical weapons on civilians has brought the world to the brink of World War III.

To view the full picture we need to go back to World War I. Chemicals weapons were used by various sides, and people were slaughtered in mass.

During World War II the use of chemical weapons was avoided. However, over six million Jews were slaughtered in camps at the hands of Germans using chemical weapons.

Realizing how devastating chemical weapons are, the world agreed to abolish their use.

Crimes Against Humanity

What a Trade War with China Would Mean

Kevin Felts political commentator

What would a trade war with China mean? It would mean the collapse of the Chinese economy.

It has been proven historically, time and time again, Communist do not innovate. Neither do slaves innovate.

Where does innovation come from? Free people and mainly from a capitalist economy.

Why don’t Communist innovate? Because their inventions belong to the government. As a result, there is no financial incentive for people living under a communist, or oppressive, regime to innovate. As a result, China is totally dependent upon what the people of the United States create.

What would happen if U.S. based companies were forced to move their factories back to the U.S.? The economy of China would collapse. Unemployment would skyrocket, and there would be wide-spread civil unrest.

Civil Unrest

The Second Amendment Is Not About Hunting

AR-15 SHTF Survival Rifle

In the gun control community there is a popular statement that has been repeated for decades – “Nobody needs a 30 round magazine for hunting.” Another statement is – “Nobody hunts with an AR-15.” Then the classic – “Nobody needs an AR-15 to defend their family.”

What those people do not understand, the Second Amendment is not about hunting, and it only slightly about protecting ones home and family.

The true nature of the Second Amendment is for the people of the United States to be armed to protect themselves from their government and from invaders.

Who was the militia? Every able-bodied male.

Even though congress passed laws changing the militia from armed volunteers to the national guard, the intent of the Second Amendment remains.

The founding fathers wanted to the people to be armed in order to resist a tyrannous government. This is a last ditch effort so the people may protect themselves.

What happens when people are disarmed? Ask the 100 million people Communism killed in the 20th century alone.

Facebook Did Not Help Donald Trump Get Elected President

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The leftist are at it again. This time they are blaming Facebook data harvesting and social engineering for Hillary Clinton losing the 2016 presidential election.

When are progressive left Socialist Democrats going to realize what cost them the election is the general public disagrees with their agenda.

The leftist believe all they had to do was follow the script and Hillary would be elected president. Just get on TV, say the right words, make the right promises, and the nation would have another Democrat president.

Things did not turn out as the progressive Socialist left expected. Everyday working people saw through their lies and voted for real change. In short, we voted for Donald Trump.

Gun Control Communist Fascist Socialist and Democrats

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

What do Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats all have in common? Let’s exclude the obvious, such as human rights violations, mass murder, slavery, opposing civil rights, genocide… etc.

All four promote gun control.

For all intents and purposes, there is very little difference between Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats.

Some readers may be quick to say, “Democrats are champions of civil rights.” That is a common misconception.

Here is one of the Democrat policies spelled out.

  • Create a lie that victimizes a certain group.
  • Repeat the lie until people of the supposed victimized group accept it as truth.
  • Tell the fake victims the only way to protect themselves is to take rights away from the other group.
  • After rights are taken away from the fictitious aggressors, create a new group of victimized people.
  • Make up a lie, repeat the lie until the next group believes it.

Democrats: Limit Rights Until 21 Years Old

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

There is a growing movement across the United States that is demanding the legal age to purchase a firearm be moved up to 21 years old. Buyers already have to be 21 years old to purchase handguns. Rifles and shotguns are 18 years old.

I am sick and tired of the right to keep and bear arms being treated as a second class right. So let’s take this idiotic idea of raising the age limit to 21 and apply it to other rights.

Freedom of political speech should be limited to someone at least 21 years old. Anyone under 21 who makes a political statement should be charged with a crime.

Freedom of religion should start at 21 years old. No person should be allowed to attend a religious gathering, pray, or anything associated with religion until they are 21 years old.

Limit Rights Until 21

Democrat Cycle Of Bad Policy

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Make no doubt about it, the Democrat party is a party founded on bad policies, then blaming others when the bad policy needs to be changed.

Democrat cycle of policies:

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Rinse, repeat until desired social agenda is achieved.

Can Not Legislate a Conscience

Kevin Felts political commentator

If there is one thing that should stop mass shootings, but fails, it has to be the conscience. The conscience is supposed to point people in the right direction. It is supposed to help us help us make the right decision. What happened to the conscience of mass shooters?

What makes mass shooters different from serial killers? Instead of killing a dozen people over the course of a decade like a serial killer, a mass shooter kills a dozen people in a few minutes.

After the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, the gun grabbers were out in full force. The bodies were still warm when they were offered up as a sacrificial lamb to justify gun control. The bodies were held high, as if to impress the GOD of gun control.

Just as drugs and illegal immigrants slip across the border, so would illegal weapons. If border security can not stop millions of illegal immigrants, what is to assure us illegal guns can be stopped?
