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

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.

Turned 50 Years Old

Working on the bar-b-q pit

I recently turned 50 years old, and life has not turned out like what I had expected. When I graduated high school and went to work, I believed that if someone worked hard, and was a dedicated employee, the employer would treat you well. That was all a lie. Pretty much everything I was taught in school had been a lie. The only thing that was not a lie, was going to college.

In 1986 when I graduated high school, shipyards along the gulf coast had collapsed due to switching to OPEC for our oil production. I thought a young man could leave high school, apply himself, and everything would be ok. It was a fantasy that was no longer realistic.

1994 was when I decided to go to college. I was working at a welding shop in Southwest Louisiana that did not provide any real benefits. There was no vacation time, just a few paid holidays, no 401k, and no health insurance for my family. Something had to change. I had been working in various welding shops for eight years, and knew they were a dead end. So I went to Lamar College and talked to them.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program

Kevin Felts working on his bar-b-q pit

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?”

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:

Trump Sets New Standard For Politicians

Ever since politics was invented, people lied, took bribes, made fake promises, whatever it took to get elected. The voters knew this. However, deep in our hearts we hoped the politicians might keep some of their promises. After all, when someone makes a promise, they are supposed to least “try” and keep it, right?

Politicians however, do not even try to keep their promises. There is no explaining why something did not work out. Such as obama making promises that healthcare insurance would cost as much as a cell phone bill. Or that a college education should be affordable. Regardless of how many promises obama failed to keep, he was reelected. What does that say about the voters?

Then Donald Trump came along. He made promises, and he is keeping those promises. Unlike presidents over the past 100 years, Donald Trump is holding true to his campaign promises.

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:

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.

There Is The Issue Of:

Crimea votes to join Russia

Russian flag

With about half the votes counted so far the vote to return Crimea to Russia is a landslide with around 93% of the voters voting to join Russia.

This is a vote by the people and for the people. The problem is, people such as president Obama and organizations such as the European Union are calling the vote illegal. How can the will of the people be illegal? Comments by people such as president obama and john McCain show how much our own government cares about the will of the people.

International observes who observe elections noted that the elections are going well and there are no signs of voter intimidation.

How Low Can The United States Go

Its not enough that our factories have been shipped to China, its not enough the Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air,,, but now the federal government is talking about running a gun buy back program.

40 members of Congress sent House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a letter demanding a national gun buyback program.

Democrats argued, “Distributing funding to the states to run buyback programs using prepaid debit cards with a three-month expiration date could provide a jolt to local economies that have stagnated in the wake of the recession and concerns over the fiscal cliff.”

In other words, members of congress hope people are desperate enough that we are willing to sale our guns.

Give it a few more years, and if another liberal democrat gets elected, we can probably kiss our guns goodbye.

If a buyback program does not work, then lets look for an presidential executive order ordering people to hand in their military style firearms.

Executive Order 6102 signed on April 5, 1933, by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt forbid the hording of gold. Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67

If FDR can issue an executive order ordering people to turn in their gold, Obama can do the same thing with military style weapons.

How long until we are nothing more then disarmed peasants?

Why Would Anyone Vote for Obama

Kevin Felts political commentator

Do you want to know what amazes me about voters in the USA? Its the level of stupidity.

If you want an example, look at the number of people who voted for obama. The question is, why did they vote for him? I am going to guess its because he is black.

Murder of US Citizens

Would you vote for someone that approves of US citizens being killed without a trial? That is what happened with Anwar al-Aulaqi and his 16 year old son. How can people turn a blind eye to the government murdering its own citizens? And then the people want those officials elected back into office? What was Anwar al-Aulaqi guilty of? He spoke out against the government of the United States.

Detaining with no due process – Would you like to be arrested and detained forever? No access to a lawyer, no bail, no contact with friends or family,,,, no nothing but a prison cell. Get a speeding ticket, its off to prison forever. Sound silly? But that is what has happened. The US government has detained suspected terrorist for a decade. Obama promised to close the prison camps, but we see how far that went.

Random thoughts September 18 2012

2012 Elections

Well, it seems Mitt Romney stuck his foot in his mouth by saying Obama supports see themselves as victims, and that Obama appeals to voters who do not pay taxes.

In other words, the people who vote for Obama are black, lower class and live off welfare.

Yep, I pretty much agree.

Its like the lady during the 2008 election that said if Obama is elected, she will not have to worry about her mortgage.

How Do We Stop Mass Murderers

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

How do we stop mass murderers from picking up a gun and going on a killing spree?

How do we stop people like David Koresh?

How do we stop someone like Jeffrey Dahmer?

How do we stop someone like the Son of Sam killer?

How do we stop someone like president obama from killing U.S. citizens?

How do we stop someone like George Bush jr from detaining people with no due process of law?

What is the between some mass murderers kidnapping someone off the street, and the CIA thugs? Shouldn’t people be safe from not only each other, but also the government?

What makes Hitler and the Nazis any different then the current US government? Nazis rounded up Jews, the U.S. government is rounding up and/or killing people who are accused of being a terrorist. Neither nation afforded their victims due process of law.
