Democrats Reaction To State Of The Union Address

Kevin Felts political commentator

Anyone who is on social media has surely seen the pictures of Democrats reacting to President Donald Trumps State of the Union address. In all honesty, we should not be surprised.

Democrats have a lot to be worried about. The 2018 mid-term elections will be at the end of 2018, and with a booming economy, voting democrat means voting against ones on best interest.

The Democrat platform is built on fear, and has always been built on fear. This goes all the way to before the United States Civil War. Democrats will whisper in your ear, “See that person over there, they want to hurt you. Don’t worry though, I am going to protect you.”

With the passage of the Civil Rights act Democrats had to find another group to demonize, so they slowly changed tactics to demonizing white male conservatives. Democrats will whisper in the ear of minorities, “See that Republican, they want to hurt you.” Usually, the implied hurt is through cutting social benefits, or enforcing immigration laws.

Now that Trump has shown he is will to work with Democrats on immigration, and has shown he is putting the United States first, it is getting more difficult for Democrats to demonize him.

When Trump talked about minority unemployment being at an all time low, Democrats sat on their hands.

When Trump talked about fair trade deals, Democrats sat on their hands.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has everyone up in arms when President Trump rescinded the program.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals problem has been decades in the making, going all the way back to the 1980s and Ronald Regan. Yet, DACA is supposed to be President Trumps fault? This showdown between democrats and Republicans has been decades in the making.

President Obama ruled with a pen. What can done with a pen can be undone with a pen. Rather than getting congress to work together, obama signed an executive order.

The second issue are parents who brought their children to a nation without going through the proper channels. What kind of example did those parents set for the children? “Sure we are breaking the law, so what?”

Illegal Immigration Nail in the Coffin for Obama

Kevin Felts political commentator

The flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda. Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

Random Thoughts January 27 2013

The nation is screwed, and I mean royally screwed.

National Debt

The government is so far into debt, there is no way future generations can pay off the debt. As of the posting of this article the US Government is $16.4 trillion in debt. With credit card debt and student loan debt, we owe more like $58 trillion.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

We are throwing millions of dollars to illegal immigrants. Between 2009 and 2011 we spent around $91 million on health care for illegal immigrants.

Social Security disability is expected to go bankrupt by 2016.

Congress is looking for ways to allow millions of illegal immigrants to become citizens.

Illegal immigrants are not entitled to equal rights

There is an interesting article on CNN posted by Charles Garcia, Why ‘illegal immigrant’ is a slur.

The root of the article appears to be:

In this country, there is still a presumption of innocence that requires a jury to convict someone of a crime.

Mr. Garcia, I respectfully disagree. None U.S. citizens are not entitled to the same rights as U.S. citizens. This has been proven time and time again with Guantanamo Bay.

On one hand we argue people inside the U.S. deserve equal rights – innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

On the other hand, we detain people with no due process, no access to legal counsel, and then use torture on the people being detained. Where are the equal rights for the people being detained at Guantanamo Bay?

Where was the due process for Abdulrahman al-Awlaki? For those of you not familiar with Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, he was a U.S. citizen who was killed by a drone attack.

he United States is Dying

The United States is dying a slow painful death, and it is the fault of the people. The voters have failed to elect people who represent the needs of the people. Instead, the people have elected scumbags that bow down to wall street and the bankers.

The U.S. government owes more money then the tax payers can ever hope to pay back.

Obama is killing U.S. citizens overseas. Anwar al-Awlaki was a U.S. citizen, and he was killed with no due process. he was never brought to trial, he never had his day in court, he never had the chance to hire an attorney. What does that say about society when we pick and choose who gets their day in court?

U.S. citizens are now required to purchase health insurance. Who does that benefit, the insurance companies, or the customers being forced to purchase a product?

Illegal immigration and welfare abuse

survivalistBefore we begin, I want to make it clear that everyone at some time or another may need a helping hand. People lose their jobs, run into financial problems and need some help.

However, the support system was never intended as a way of life.

Our society has cultivated four groups of people:

Group 1 – people who think they are entitled to welfare, or entitled to other social benefits.

After Hurricane Andrew passed through Florida, there were stories of people sitting in their front yards waiting for the government to clean up the mess. When asked why they were not cleaning up their own yard, the reply was something like “the government is supposed to take care of stuff like that”. It was reported that one family had been on welfare for 3 generations. The family had no idea what it was like to do something for yourself. In their minds, the government should do everything.

After hurricane katrina hit new orleans, I was required by my employer to go to the shelter and help out. In all, I think there were close to 200 people at the shelter – men, women and children.
