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.

Will Democrats Push Gun Control In 2018

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

One question gun owners may be thinking, “Will democrats push gun control in the 2018 mid-term elections?”

There is a saying about articles that start with a question, “The answer is no.” This is called Betteridge’s law of headlines. The law is the absurd suggestion that says anything that starts with a question can be answered with a no.

I prefer a more balanced approach: Ask a question, present the evidence, then let the reader make up their own mind. That is what writers are supposed to do, right? Present both sides and let the reader make up their own mind.

If we follow Betteridge’s law of headlines, the answer is no, and I am glad Democrats will not be pushing gun control in 2018. However, what if I told you the answer was yes?

The real answer is a combination of yes and no.

Yes On Gun Control

Liberals Acting Like conservatives

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Usually, a conservative is associated with someone who resist schange. With that in mind, it is nice to see progressive liberals acting like conservatives.

When it comes to just about anything having to do with changing the obama agenda, liberals act like conservatives and resist change. What are these new found conservatives afraid of? For example, the net worked just fine before 2015. Yet, listen to the progressives at Google and the sky is falling.

Talk about improving healthcare, and new found conservatives protest in droves.

Revise the tax code, new found conservatives protest.

Why are liberals flipping and becoming conservatives? Trump has an agenda, just like obama did. If people opposed the obama agenda, they were called racist. What do we call people who resist Trumps agenda? Maybe call them right wing conservatives?
