Democrat Party Has Lost Their Minds

Overlooking the Angelina River near Jasper, Texas

Either the Democrat party has lost their minds, or maybe they just do not realize what they are doing? It is obvious they are still butt hurt over Hillary losing. They also know there is no way to beat trump in the next elections.

Rather than addressing the issues, such as balanced trade, healthcare, cost of medicines, they go after trump with impeachment.

  • Economy is doing good.
  • Lowest minority unemployment rate ever recorded.
  • Renegotiated NAFTA
  • Forcing Chinas hand on balanced trade
  • Killed ISIS leader
  • Destroyed ISIS
  • Visited North Korea (just at the border)

President Donald Trump may no be the president most people wanted, but he is the president we needed.

Some reason democrats think impeachment is going to fix anything? Only thing impeachment will do is drive blue collar democrats away from the party.

When Are Democrats Going To Address The Issues

Kevin Felts political commentator

While watching the rhetoric building up to the 2020 elections, it appears Democrats are all following the same ole song and dance that cost Hillary the election. Rather than addressing real issues facing everyday people – jobs, balanced trade, healthcare reform, cost of higher education, Democrats are bashing Trump. regardless of who is talking, it is “Trump this and Trump that.” Bashing Trump will only work with simple minded people, like those who voted for Hillary.

The honest truth is, voters are tired of partisan politics. We want elected officials to address the issues.

Let’s take the example of gun control. One person, who shall remain nameless, was talking about new gun control laws she wanted to pass. One of the laws was to prevent peo0ple with a restraining order from buying a gun. The problem is, there are already laws on the books that are supposed to do exactly that.

The next example is equal pay for women. The woman said if she is elected president, she will make sure women make the same as men. The problem is, every state in the nation already has equal pay laws on the books, and there is already an equal pay federal law – the Equal Pay Act of 1963. So what “exactly” is she supposed to do? Pass yet more laws that will be ignored by politicians running for office?

What Do The 2018 Midterm Election Results Mean?

Kevin Felts at the Angelina River

The 2018 midterm elections have come and gone, and Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives. What is one of the first things Democrats are talking about, gun control. Now that Democrats are in control of the house some of them are saying gun control will be passed.

However, GOP still controls the senate.

President Trump is unlikely to sign any serious gun control bills.

Democrats from gun friendly conservative states know they voter base does not want gun control.

With all of that in mind, I doubt any type of gun control will pass. This is mostly political posturing to make the far left happy.

Gun Control

As of when this post was posted I am 50 years old and have been watching politics since the late 1980s. I have various gun magazines from the 1980s and 1990s talking about serious gun control issues of the time. So I know the ups and downs of the gun control debate.

Agenda of the Democratic Socialist Party of America

Kevin Felts political commentator

Took time Friday (November 2, 2018) to vote against the Democratic Socialist Party of America, also known as the Democrat Party.

When I hear people say they are resisting Trump, what “exactly” are they resisting? Balanced trade? Jobs? Secure borders? It is estimated 1,000 manufacturing jobs are being created everyday. One of those jobs was mine.

A record number of people are employed thanks to Trumps policies on domestic production and balanced trade. Yet, people want to resist Trump, which means the are resisting jobs? The people who resist Trump resist buying a home, buying a car, and having a family? Or maybe they are resisting the idea that people do not need government handouts?

Democrats thrive when people are in poverty. There is an old saying – “People willingly turn to socialism. Communism is taken by force.” To get people to vote for socialism all they have to do is spend enough time living in poverty. Take away financial hopes and dreams, and people will generally vote for Socialist policies.

With the Affordable Care Act raising the price of healthcare, but subsidizing health insurance policies, people are being trained to accept government help. The idea of turning to the government for help is a new idea brought forth by Democrat policies starting with passage of welfare laws. Rather than telling people to pull themselves up by their boot straps, just get on welfare, food stamps, public housing… etc.

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 Continue With The Russian Narrative

Kevin Felts political commentator

Democrats continue to play the Russian narrative. Meaning, they refuse to accept voters rejected the progressive ideas of the Democrat party.

Some recent events:

Rudy Giuliani may be joining the Trump team.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) sued President Trump and Wikileaks.

The DNC is claiming President Trump colluded with the Russians so Trump would win the 2016 presidential elections. However, President Trump has been investigated for almost two years, and so far no evidence has been found.

Some people may say, “No evidence “yet” has been found.” Consider this – After the Vegas shooting by Stephen Paddock, just hours after the shooting the FBI said there was no connection with the Islamic State.

It took the FBI just hours to clear Stephen Paddock of any connection to the Islamic State, yet President Trump has been under investigation for almost two years. So either the FBI was lying about Stephen Paddock and any ties to the Islamic State, or there the investigation in Trump and Russia is nothing more than a witch hunt.

Let’s take a few minutes and talk about why Democrats lost over 1,000 state seats between 2008 – 2016, and why they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

Democrats Continue Blatant Racism

Syrian Gas Attacks: Why Survivalist Prep

Kevin Felts political commentator

Want to know why survivalist prep? Look no further than the Syrian gas attacks in April of 2018. The chemical weapons attacks on civilians in Syria is an excellent example of why survivalist prep, this is the reason why we exist.

Not that chemicals weapons would be used in mass on the United States, but the use of chemical weapons on civilians has brought the world to the brink of World War III.

To view the full picture we need to go back to World War I. Chemicals weapons were used by various sides, and people were slaughtered in mass.

During World War II the use of chemical weapons was avoided. However, over six million Jews were slaughtered in camps at the hands of Germans using chemical weapons.

Realizing how devastating chemical weapons are, the world agreed to abolish their use.

Crimes Against Humanity

Only Fascist Should Have Guns

Kevin Felts political commentator

That’s right, only fascist should have guns. That is what the liberal anti-gun and anti-Trump liberal media is telling people.

Ever since Donald Trump ran for president he has been accused of being a fascist.

The anti-Trump movement even reached a point where members of the electoral college were asked not to vote for Trump. When Trump was sworn in, members of the socialist Democrat party had a complete meltdown.

After Donald Trump was elected president, ANTIFA organized rallies calling for Trump and Pence to step down.

Once Trump was sworn in, various website called him a “illegitimate” president.

Yet, even though the nation has a so called “fascist” for a president, members of the liberal media still want gun control. How does that even make sense? Why would people living under a fascist for a government want stricter gun control?

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

China Reacts to Trump’s State of the Union

Flag of china

Make do doubt about it, China is not our friend. As much as we would like to think China and the USA are buddies, we have drastically different ideology on simple stuff, like human rights, gun rights, voting, freedom of speech, freedom of religion… etc.

During the State of the Union address, President Trump made it clear our government will protect our workers, our economy and our intellectual property rights. Those comments seems to have upset the Chinese government.

China has positioned itself so it is the face of global economic domination. It is the worlds largest trading partner, however, without innovation from the USA China has little to market.

The only thing that has allowed China to become the worlds largest trading partner is its access to cheap labor. When trading partners demand balanced and fair trade, the “cheap labor” business model is no longer effective.

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

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.

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.
