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

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.

Democrats: Repetition and Simplicity Over Substance

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Have you ever wondered why modern pop music is so terrible? The lyrics are rather bland, and the lyrics are repeated over and over. This makes the song easy to remember. Just say the same lines over and over and it makes the song easy for people to follow. The end result is repetition and simplicity over substance.

This it the same trick Democrats use to cover up their failed political agenda. Give the people a simple answer, then repeat the answer over and over until people believe it.

Rather than facing their failures, being honest, talking about why Hillary lost the 2016 election, Democrats play the blame game.

The game Democrats play is to blame Russia for Hillary losing the election. Blaming the Russians is simple. It gives the public an enemy to point at and blame. The repetition reminds people that Russia is to blame for Hillary losing the election.

The goal is to give people a believable excuse. Hillary did not lose because Democrats are the party of hate. Hillary lost because Russia hacked the elections.

Let’s be honest, the stances Hillary took on certain topics cost her the election.

Historical Blame Game

Dear Democrats You’re Welcome

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

For everyone who was worried about how Donald Trump was going to do as president, and for everyone who voted for Hillary, you’re welcome. You are welcome because the fly-over states did not believe Hillary.

We voted for someone who would fulfill Obama’s failed promises of hope and change.

Why didn’t we vote for Hillary? Because we saw through her lies. Let’s take equal pay for women as an example. Hillary promised, when she is elected president, women would make as much as men. Well, we already have the equal pay act of 1963. So what was Hillary going to do, pass a law to enforce a law?

During the 2016 elections, Democrats were playing their age old agenda of tell a lie until people believe it.

Democrats, You’re Welcome For:

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

2017 Was A Wild Ride

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

One thing is for sure, 2017 was one for the history books. Not only was Donald Trump sworn in, but we also got to see the true side of the liberal left agenda.

2017 laid bare how divided the United States really is. There is no longer a peaceful transfer of power. People in powerful places play politics in an attempt to undermine the Republic. After President Trump moved into the White house, there was leak, after leak, after leak… Never in the history of the United States have the people seen such contempt for the president.

When Trump was elected president, the liberal left went into full meltdown. And to think Trump was mocked for his answer when asked, “If he would accept the election results.” Funny how things work themselves out. In the end, it was the Socialist Democrats who refused to accept the results.

Then there were the natural disasters and mass shootings that rocked 2017.

The Shock And Awe Of President Donald Trump

Kevin Felts political commentator

The people of the United States are in a state of shock and awe over President Donald Trump. He is holding true to his election promises and doing exactly what he needs to do to restore the USA as a world leader.

Let’s be perfectly honest, when Donald Trump announced his run for the presidency, the earth shook with laughter. Main stream media mucked Trump as if he were a red headed step child. The political elite laughed and laughed, but slowly, their tears of joy turned to tears of anguish.

There have been numerous questions as to why Donald Trump was put in the presidents chair.

The answer is simple, the people were tired of business as usual. We are tired of career politicians who are out of touch with everyday working people. It was the people with their unyielding desire for change that put Donald Trump in the White House.

Why are the people of the United States in a state of shock and awe? Probably because we have not had a strong leader in a generation.

Strong Leader

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?

Why Is Donald Trump Hated By Liberal Media?

Kevin Felts political commentator

When Donald Trump first announced his run for the presidency there was a backlash from main stream media. Why was that? As Donald Trump made progress in the polls main stream media fought back. Liberal Socialist Democrats threw everything they had, and everything they could fabricate, against Donald Trump, and he still won.

After Trump won the election, main stream media waged an all out war on the president. Why was that? Why were Liberal Socialist Democrats so opposed to Donald Trump winning the 2016 election?

The simple answer is, Donald Trump is going to what is best for the nation. He could not be bought, nor did he owe a debt to those who got him elected.

For example, before the Affordable Care Act was passed, President Obama met with people who represented insurance companies. Who do we think the ACA represents, the people, or insurance companies?

Democrats Are Undermining The Republic

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

In the United States of America, we are supposed to have a peaceful transfer of power from one political party to another. That “peaceful transfer of power” is being undermined by liberal democrat controlled major media.

No President in history has faced as much backlash as President Trump.

From the very second after the election results, Democrats were crying foul. They refused to accept that Donald Trump was elected President and are doing everything they can to either undermine his term or remove him from office.

When Obama was in office, the GOP fought him on certain issues, and sometimes congress ground to a stand still, but the current events after the election are much worse than anything obama ever faced.

My honest opinion, the leaks and impeachment has nothing to do with Trump, but rather Democrats regaining control of the White House. Liberal Democrats are pushing an agenda. Anyone who stands in the way of that agenda is the enemy.

What Trump Means To Preppers

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

What does the election of Donald Trump mean to preppers? It means there is a lot of good stuff in the future.

End free trade and bring our jobs back from China.

Let China know we will no longer bow to them.

Restore relations with Russia.

Restore good relations with Britain. President obama made some disparaging comments after Britain left the EU.

Bomb ISIS back to the stone age. Even if you feel ISIS is no threat to the United States, they are a threat to stability in the middle east and they are a human rights issue.

ISIS is killing innocent civilians. Their actions have caused hundreds of thousands to flee the middle east. Destroy ISIS so families can return to their homes.

Stances That Cost Hillary Clinton The 2016 Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

While liberals continue to ask why did Hillary Clinton lose the election, the answer lies within her stance on certain issues. What Hillary told the people and want she said to Wall Street were two different things. Rather than addressing the issues, Hillary played on the fears and emotions of minorities.

President Obama promised a lot of stuff. Very little of what he promised came to fruition. States who expanded Medicaid under Obamacare are running out of money, as was be expected. Companies still have offshore tax havens.

Instead of working with congress to close to tax havens, president Obama sat on his hands. That tax money could of been used to send young adults from under privileged families to college.

The People Want a President Who:

Election, Life, Millennials, Democrats and the 2016 Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

I want to do a video blog (vblog) about the elections, life and millennials. There has been a lot of stuff going on in the United States and worldwide, that will be felt for generations. If Trump holds true to even part of his promises the United States poses to be a world leader. And not only a world leader, but to work with other world leaders to create a bright future for everyone.

The liberal agenda of open borders and free trade has to end. The liberal agenda of safe haven cities for illegal immigrants has to end. It will be interesting to see what happens when safe haven cities defy President Trump.

2016 election

The democrat party platform, as they have always been, is built on fear.

1860s – 1960s, democrats played on the fears of minorities. See those minorities over there, they want to hurt you.

1960s – present day, democrats have demonized the conservative white male. See that white man, he is oppressing all minorities.

Millennials Have to Support Trump For Their Financial Future

It is critical millennials support President Donald Trump. Ending free trade will be the only way they will have a real financial future. Free trade with China and other low wage nations has decimated the middle class here in the United States. Millennials do not realize their financial future depends on ending free trade.

While browsing YouTube I came across a video of two young men arguing back and forth about Trump.

One young man asked how is trump going to make America great again.

It was at that point I realized he had slept through American history classes in school. There was once a time when the United States was the manufacturing hub of the world. We produced all kinds of stuff.

Then came along free trade.

Those young men did not know that there was a time when a young man could go into the workforce and afford to buy a home. buy a car and have a family.

Millennials voting against Donald Trump are voting against their own financial future.

Financial Future

Race Had Nothing To Do With Trump Winning

The race baiters are at it again. This time they are callign the election of Donald Trump a, “Whitelash.” As in whites are lashing out at the United States having a black president.

Honest truth, the middle class is tired of business as usual. We are tired of out jobs being sent to China. China surpassed the United States as the worlds largest trading partner.

Donald Trump won the election based on President Obamas failed policies and the fear mongering done by Hillary Clinton. President Obama promised hope and change, and all we got was mandated health insurance. Rather than working with both parties, President Obama tried to rule by exectuive order, and people are tired of it.
