Democrats Voting Against Their Best Interest

Kevin Felts political commentator

There is a common question democrats like to throw to Republican voters – “Why do you vote against your best interest?” Meaning, why do Republican voters vote against socialism, and socialist policies? For one, one idiots vote for socialism, which is first cousins to communism and fascism.

There is an old saying that goes something like this – “People willingly turn to socialism, communism is taken by force.”

During difficult financial times, people willingly turn to socialist policies for help, such as public housing, food stamps, social security disability… etc. Eventually, the socialist government gives way to communism to keep the people under control.

During good financial times, and people have jobs and expendable income, voters reject socialism.

To achieve socialism the democrat party wants a stagnated economy, and free trade policies. American workers can not compete against a worker in China, or other low wage nations. Thus, factories move to China to exploit cheap labor. This results in the middle class losing ground, and wage stagnation. As the middle class dwindles and people lose jobs, they are more likely to vote for socialist policies.

Donald Trump Is a Threat to Democrat Socialist Agenda

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 Most people think the Eighteenth Amendment was introduced, passed, and was later repealed.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

There Is No War On The Poor

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

One of the common fear mongering tactics Democrats love to use, is to tell low income people Republicans hate them. This creates a us versus them tactic that allows democrats to thrive.

Socialist Democrats go on to tell low income people how Republicans want to see poor people starve and have their benefits taken away. Again, all lies.

The only “war” going in is a war on laziness. Welfare should not be a career path. Nor should generations of families be raised on welfare. To get people off welfare, welfare should be as uncomfortable as possible. This means just the very bare basics.

Chances are, if someone qualifies for welfare, they qualify for free college through the local community college. If someone is in public housing, why aren’t they attending community college? The answer suggest they are to lazy to better themselves.

Democrats Are The Party Of Hate

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

Why Democrats Oppose GOP Tax Reform

Kevin Felts political commentator

Why are Democrats opposed to people keeping more of their money? When Democrats had control of both houses and the presidency between 2008 – 2010, they did nothing to address off-shore tax havens. The party did nothing to overhaul the burdensome tax code. Nor did the party address companies hiding their money in other countries.

What did democrats do? They passed the so called affordable health care act that put more taxes on people.

Why is that? If Democrats refuse to address taxes, why are they opposed to the GOP tax reform?

Let’s say the wealthy keep more of their money, so what? Who do you think builds their mansions, their clothes, ships the stuff they buy… etc? The wealthy provide jobs to the working class in one way or another. Take a look at Mike Tyson and MC Hammer. They burned though millions. That money was put back into the economy.

Roy Moore Defeat Was No Surprise

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The defeat of Roy Moore came as no surprise and proved several things.

1. People are gullible. The people of Alabama proved they can not think for themselves and rely on spoon fed information.

2. Repeat a lie long enough and people will start to believe it.

3. People of Alabama are willing to give away their rights. The democrat party is on the path of socialism. This means people give up their rights for the good of the community. Under socialism individual rights are sacrificed.

If you want your individual liberties preserved, do NOT vote democrat.

4. People of Alabama do not want real change. Trump is the resistance to the business as usual agenda of Washington D.C.. If the people want “real” change, and not the fake change that President Obama offered, we have to support Trump.

Why Is Donald Trump Hated By Liberal Media?

Kevin Felts political commentator

When Donald Trump first announced his run for the presidency there was a backlash from main stream media. Why was that? As Donald Trump made progress in the polls main stream media fought back. Liberal Socialist Democrats threw everything they had, and everything they could fabricate, against Donald Trump, and he still won.

After Trump won the election, main stream media waged an all out war on the president. Why was that? Why were Liberal Socialist Democrats so opposed to Donald Trump winning the 2016 election?

The simple answer is, Donald Trump is going to what is best for the nation. He could not be bought, nor did he owe a debt to those who got him elected.

For example, before the Affordable Care Act was passed, President Obama met with people who represented insurance companies. Who do we think the ACA represents, the people, or insurance companies?

Only Idiots Vote For Gun Control

Kevin Felts political commentator

Let’s say someone came to you and asked you to restrict your rights, what would you say?

For the sake of discussion, let’s say they wanted to restrict your right to vote, or your right to a jury trial, or your right to bail, or your right to go to church. What would you say?

The person would use different arguments, but the end result would be the same. Which would be limiting your rights. Letting people out on bail is to dangerous, so let’s keep people in prison until their trial date.

Why would we need a trial by jury? Let’s appoint scientist to look at the evidence and decide a persons fate. With trained professionals there is no need to have attorneys. Just present the evidence and let them decide.

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.

Democrat Party Socialist Agenda Is In Death Throes

Kevin Felts political commentator

The socialist democrat party is in its death throes. Voters are starting to wake up, they realize the end goal of the democrat party agenda is communism

Republicans, the party that was “supposed” to fade away into history now controls two branches of government. Democratic party leaders are in their 70s, which are Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders.

In two years something like 25 senate seats will be up for election. This gives the GOP 2 years to turn the economy and the nation around. If they do, democrats will lose even more seats in the senate.

The fear mongering, corporate loving, free trade loving, open immigration democrat party better get its act together before the final nails are driven in the coffin 2 years from now.

The silent majority sees democrats for what they are, and we do not like it.

Free Trade

Free trade has devastated our economy ever since Nixon opened trade with China.

Thoughts on The 2016 Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

Elections are pretty hot and heavy. The end result is each side digging in and slinging mud at each other. This has been the status quo every since the first elections were held thousands of years ago. What stands out in this election is how the press is ignoring the DNC leaked emails. The whole rigging of the DNC primary so Hillary Clinton would win has been brushed under the rug.

Where is the outrage at the DNC for plotting against Bernie? The DNC has undermined the entire Republic form of government. The people are not getting a fair and equal choice that should be expected from a republic form of government.

Are Hillary and Trump The Best We Have To Offer

At the root of the 2016 elections is the question, are Hillary and Trump the best we can do? Are these two individuals the best our nation has to offer?

Ever since Nixon took office our wonderful nation has been in a downhill spiral. Have you ever asked yourself why Nixon opened relations with China? Have you ever asked yourself why shortly after Nixon visited China toy companies started having their products made there?

Have you asked yourself why Ronald Reagan gave tax breaks to the rich? Robert Reich in his documentary “Inequality for All” explains in great detail how tax breaks for the rich have contributed to income inequality.

We Need Socialized Higher Education

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

What is the prohibitive factor slowing down progress? Besides greed.

Why do so few US citizens own their homes?

Why do we have widespread income inequality?

It all boils down to ease of access to higher education. Whether it is a skill trade such as welding and heavy equipment operation, or a professional such as being a doctor or lawyer, people need access to higher education.

A simple fix would be to socialize higher education. What the student pays would be based on their income and their parents income. For schools like Yale, Harvard, Brown, A&M,,, they would do a lottery system for applicants.

If a homeless person applies to Harvard and is drawn through the lottery, that person would attend school for free. That homeless person would be attending for free because the government would set the rates of the school.

Gun Haters Do Not Understand The 2nd Amendment

FN/FAL Rifle at a shooting range

Everytime there is an incident of gun related violence, it seems the crazies start coming out the woodwork like roaches in a wood pile.

Do gun haters just not understand what the 2nd amendment is about, or are they just stupid?

Lets take this video about an anti-gun rally.

Place the blame where it belongs, on mentally ill people.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 people, and did not use a single gun.

Adam Lanza murdered 26 people.

What did Jeffrey Dahmer and Adam Lanza have in common? Both of them were mentally ill.

If we want to make society safe, lets keep mentally ill people locked away from the general public. Whether its a gun, a knife, baseball bat,,,, mentally ill people will find a way to kill others.

True Purpose of the 2nd Amendment

How Low Can The United States Go

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

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.

Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban

Obama won California during the election, and now Dianne Feinstein is going to introduce new gun control legislation.

“I’m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House — a bill to ban assault weapons,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively,” and ban the sale of clips of more than ten bullets, Feinstein said. “The purpose of this bill is to get… weapons of war off the streets.”

In other words, the many will have to pay for the crimes of the few.
