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

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?

Why Did Hillary Lose the 2016 Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

Why Did Hillary Lose the 2016 Election? Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas, and we were tired of career politicians.

We are tired of free trade.

We want our jobs back from China.

We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family.

We are tired of banks getting bailed out.

We are tired of wall street getting a free ride.

We are tired of obama being more interested in bathrooms than veterans.

Fear Mongering

We are tired of democrats fear mongering to divide us. Without fear democrats have no political platform. That is the way they have been in the past and that is the way they will always be. Democrats thrive on turning one demographic against another. Hillarys whole platform was built on how one group, conservative white men, are keeping everyone else down.

2014 midterm elections

It is all over but the crying. Democrats lost, Republicans won.

What amazes me is the total deflection by the Democrats. As far as some of the Democrats are concerned, they lost because of some made up reason. According to an article on HotAir, Obama blames his own party for their losses. According to the article Democrats were fighting an uphill battle to start with.

Yes democrats were fighting an uphill battle, because of all the lying obama has done. Where the help for college students? Where is our health care that cost as much as a cell phone bill? Where are the jobs? Where is all the stuff we were promised? They were lies, all lies.

The leader of the Democratic party is not even willing to take partial responsibility for the election results. Maybe, just maybe, people walking out on obama should have tipped him off on how the election was going to end up.

Your own party members and your voters do not want to associate with you. Then you blame your own party for losing the election? Wow, just wow.

Can The Republicans Win In 2016

Lets be honest, the democratic party played their cards rather well. The party rallied enough special interest groups to get obama elected the first time, and then reelected.

Will the Republicans be able to win in 2016 or 2020? Until there is a change of leadership in the Republican party, I think they have no chance of winning the white house in the near future.

There are too many special interest groups who vote their interest, rather then voting for the best interest of the nation. The democratic party has appealed to those groups to win their vote.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

If we had a candidate that said he was going to end free trade and put people back to work, the career welfare group would be scared to death. There is no way people drawing welfare are going to vote to end those benefits.

The same thing goes for illegal immigration, gays,,,, and all other special interest groups who have formed voting blocs.

The republicans stance on protecting the rich from higher taxes have alienated the middle class.

The republicans stance on immigration, abortion and gay rights have alienated the party from those voting blocs.

The republican party has become the party of old rich white men. Its just a matter of time before they die and are replaced.

Why did Romney lose

Here we are post-election scratching our heads and wondering what went wrong. Did obama win, or did romney lose? Obama won the election, but did romney help obama win the election?

The truth is, he should have never made it past the primaries. When the republican party elected romney as their candidate, the election was lost.

The more people learned about romney, the less they liked him.

Romney has too much baggage.

1 – The way romney made his money. There is nothing wrong with making money, it was “how” romney made his money that working class people disagree with.

Romney did not create anything. His investment firms bought, striped and then resold. That is not what made America great.

You not know what made America great? We built stuff. People like Henry Ford, people that created a product that people wanted.

What jobs did romney create, what factories did he have built? All I heard about was him and his investment firms sending jobs to china.

Calm before the panic buying

Calm before the SHTF panic stormThere is enough fear mongering these days without my help. With that in mind, please remember that this article is just my personal opinion and it not meant to interpreted as fact.

I feel that we are in a calm before the storm. Not necessarily a SHTF storm, but a panic buying storm.

From August until the first part of 2012:

August and September: Kids are starting back to school in the next few days, parents are having to buy back to school supplies, clothes, meet the teachers and get their kids shots caught up. Right “now” parents have a lot to think about and worry about besides prepping.

Labor day: is right around the corner.

October: Halloween in October.

October and November: Hunting season starts.

November – thanksgiving.

December – Christmas and then New Years.

People have stuff to keep their minds occupied until the first part of 2012. After the turn of the year, I look for people attention to turn towards world events and the direction this nation is going.

After new years I think is when the panic buying mode is going to kick in – and especially after people start getting their income taxes back.
