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 Most people think the Eighteenth Amendment was introduced, passed, and was later repealed.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

Define Common Sense Gun Control

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The bodies of children from the Parkland shooting are not even cold, and gun grabbers are out in force.

Gun grabbing Socialist Democrats are throwing the ever popular buzz words, “Common sense gun control” around as if the words were candy.

Someone explain “exactly” what common sense gun control is.

  • Background checks – in effect since the 1990s.
  • Family violence offenders – check.
  • Felons prohibited from owning a gun – check.
  • People with a history of mental illness – check.

Someone explain where we need more gun control, much less “common sense” gun control.

Gun owners have given up our rights since the 1930s. Those rights were further eroded by the Federal Firearms Act of 1968. Then there was the Brady Bill.

Exactly and to the point, what laws would have prevented the Parkland, Florida school shooting?

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Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has everyone up in arms when President Trump rescinded the program.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

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.

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?

Millennials Favor Communism and Socialism

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

Millennials are disillusioned with capitalism are are turning to communism and socialism.

Can we honestly blame them? Standard of living in the United States has been stagnated since the 1970s, bleak job prospects, oppressive student debt, and the “follow your dreams” ideology turned out to be a lie.

In other words, everything built by a capitalist society has left millennials with little hope.

Little hope of owning a home.
No hope of being financially independent.
Little hope of living the American dream.
No hope of being able to afford to have a family.

Millennials have rejected an economic system that exploits workers. Why would someone want to dedicate themselves to a line of work that would keep them in borderline poverty? That is one reason why I left the welding shops of southeast Texas. Who in their right state of mind wants to dedicate decades of their life to working, and have nothing to show for it? Thus is the end result of capitalism.

United States Government Has Ground To A Halt

Democrats are digging in their hills and refusing to work with President Trump. Also, there is a new type of Democrat that considers any teamwork with Republicans an act of betrayal. Anything President Trump tries to do is met with resistance. What people do not understand, Trump is the resistance.

Trump was elected because people are sick and tired of business as usual. We are tired of the government squeezing every penny they can get out of the middle class. We are tired of corporate welfare, free trade, wall street, illegal immigration… etc.

The problem is, the younger generation only knows a democrat president.

The democrat party of today is not the same party as decades ago. Democrats use to stand for working class people. Trade unions turned to Democrats to protect jobs. But, in the 1990s, unions turned their backs on the working class when unions supported free trade.

Diversity is Strangling The United States

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

Diversity is a good thing, until it comes to politics. Ever since Republicans took control of both houses and the Presidency in the 2016 elections, congress has been unable to pass any meaningful legislation.

Affordable Care Act – not fixed.
GOP has not passed any laws easing firearm restrictions.
Tax reform has stalled, which is an excellent example of opposing sides strangling the nation.

President Trump wants a tax reform bill that would cut certain write-offs. One of those write-offs is being able to write the interest paid on your home mortgage off income taxes. California and New York oppose the bill. Without the support of Representatives from from New York and California, it is unlikely the bill will pass. So, the rest of the nation is held hostage because high income states enjoy certain tax write-offs?

President Donald Trump Is The Resistance

Kevin Felts political commentator

While browsing a liberal left leaning website, there was mention of there being a resistance towards Trump.

Here is the thing, Trump is the resistance. People in their 40s and up who voted for Trump are tired of politics as usual.

Ever since Nixon established relations with China our factories are been moving over there.

Middle class was crushed by Reaganomics.

Bill Clinton sign GATT and NAFTA.

Economic crash of 2008 and nobody went to prison. The federal reserve printed trillions of out thin air to bail out the banks and everyday working people were handed the bill.

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.

Democrats Adopting Republican Policies

Kevin Felts political commentator

It is nice to see Democrats adopting republican policies. Maybe democrats are finally coming around to a reasonable way of thinking.

What is really nice, liberal Democrats are not saying a single thing about the shift in democrat policy. Maybe, just maybe, the far left is getting some common sense about them.

What exactly have the Democrats changed their minds on?

Building walls and requiring IDs to vote.

Fences And More Fences

Not only did the Democratic National Convention have a fence around it, they also built a fence between the audience and the platform.

The two fences are symbolic of the three groups of people:

  • Outside the first wall – the illegal aliens.
  • Inside the first wall – the citizens and people who are in the United States legally.
  • On the platform behind two walls – the political elite. These are the people who tell everyone else what to do, but are protected by security and two walls.

Thoughts on Trump and His Immigration Suggestions

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

When trump said he would block immigrants coming from nations with a history of terrorism, his words set off a crap storm that is still brewing.

Then there is the famous trump wall that he suggest be built between Mexico and the United States.

Why do people get so angry when someone says we need to secure our borders?

People Who Get Mad at Securing Our Borders

Do they lock the doors of their house? Do they even have doors on their house? Maybe they have just a glass door so people can look straight into their home?

Surely they do not have security systems on their homes.

Do they lock their windows? Surely they do not have security cameras.

If they took any measures to secure their home they would be a liberal hypocrite.

Why Would Anyone Vote For Hillary Clinton

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

As a southern right wing, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-work for what you want republican I keep asking myself what has hillary done to deserve all the popularity?

She is better than trump is not an honest answer.

What legislation has Hillary introduced that became law that has benefited everyday working people?

Refuses to address radical Islam.

No United States flags at the DNC.

Plays on racial tensions.

Pro-murder of unborn children.

Pro-gun control.

Anyone remember the White Water investigations?

Benghazi.

Support for Gun Control Fading

Handgun for bug out location

Good news ladies and gentlemen. The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how <Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes.

Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats. This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help.

Democrats (from 79% to 71%)
Liberals (from 75% to 67%)
Women (from 69% 55%)
Republicans (from 39% to 29%)

If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime:

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?
