Thoughts on the 2016 election

Rate This Article

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 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.

Is this the best we can do

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.


Hugo Chavez Has Died

Rate This Article

Following a long battle with cancer, Hugo Chavez has died.

For those of you who do not know my opinion Hugo Chavez, I think he was a great guy. Hugo took money from the oil companies to provide for the poor. Which is something the US government will not do.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

While companies like Exxon and Microsoft skirt paying their taxes, Hugo Chavez made sure multi-billion dollar companies paid their fair share.

Several year ago Alaska was having a rather harsh winter. Hugo Chavez offered to donate heating oil to needy families for free. While the United States government sat by and did nothing, Hugo Chavez stepped forward to help those that needed help. In their arrogance the people rejected the help offered by Hugo.

Why was Hugo Chavez painted as a villain? Because he stood up to the United States, and he stood up to the oil companies.

While the U.S. government does nothing (or very little) to help the needy, Hugo stepped for to provide for his people.

Who cares if he was socialist, or communist,,, or whatever he was. He made sure people were taken care of.

Shouldn’t a persons legacy be filled by what they did, rather then what their political beliefs were?

Something That Will Shut Those Gun Hating Liberals Up

Rate This Article

Do you know what gun owners need?  This will shut those gun hating liberals up for good.

What we need is an armed protest at the capital of all 50 states, including Washington D.C.

WASR-10 AK-47Washington D.C. has prohibited 30 round magazines, so everyone should bring their AR-15s and AK-47s loaded with 30 round magazines.  Then dare the Washington D.C. police to arrest 10,000+ armed protestors.

Gun owners are not those sissy occupy wall street protestors, free men carry guns, gun owners carry guns.

There are times when free men should talk, there are times when free men should vote, and then there are times when free men should stand up and say “hell no.”

We are getting close to the “hell no” phase.

Gun owners should step up with a show of force.  The government will not take our guns away, nor shall our rights be “restricted.”

If anything needs to be restricted, its people like Dianne Feinstein need to be restricted from holding any kind of public office. If she was talking about restricting abortion, or restricting immigration like she was doing with guns, she would probably be voted out of office in the next election.

We have let organizations like the NRA carry the torch long enough. It’s time law abiding gun owners step up to bat, and tell the government to piss off.

Anti-Gun Propaganda

Rate This Article

Example of anti-gun propaganda.

What about the gun control acts of 1934 and 1968? Do the people who make this type of video have any first hand experience with firearms?

Lets place the blame where it belongs, on the mentally ill people who kill others.

Ted Bundy did not use a gun.

Jeffrey Dahmer did not use a gun.

Jim Jones did not use a gun.

But for some reason more gun laws will fix crime?

If regulations fixed problems, why are drugs on our streets?

Hey, I have an idea, lets outlaw crack. How about bath salts? Lets outlaw them as well.

Gun Haters Do Not Understand The 2nd Amendment

Rate This Article

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.

The true purpose of the 2nd Amendment

Our forefathers established the 2nd amendment for a reason. George Washington did not write the British to death, he took up arms, established a militia, and killed the British.

This nation was founded and protected through the private ownership of guns.

Who protected New Orleans during the war of 1812? It was a bunch of men with their hunting rifles.

Who protected the United States when there was no Army, no Marines and no Navy? It was the everyday people.

If the United States were to be invaded, who would step up to protect the nation? It would be the armed citizens.

There is an old saying, the pen is mightier then the sword.

I would like to add a second part to that saying, “when the pen and the sword both fail to delivery the needed results, you pick up your rifle and the kill the enemy.”

Did the British give up because of what some newspaper wrote about King George III? The people that wrote negatively about the King of England were imprisoned. Our forefathers took up arms and killed every red coat they saw.

Did Mexico peacefully hand over Texas? It was armed citizens who beat General Santa Anna at the battle of San Jacinto on 21 April 1836 that won Texas its independence.

Hitler did not give up because of what some newspaper wrote about him. Our great grandfathers invaded Germany, bombed the hell out of it, and killed every nazi they saw. World War II was won by guns, bombs, gun powder and bullets. Pen and paper did not convince the nazis to give up.

Where did the guns for World War II come from? From factories that made civilian weapons before the war started.

It is the duty of every United States citizen to contribute something to national security. The United States will never be invaded. Why is that? Because we have 9 guns for every 10 people. No other nation in the world is as armed and ready for war as the United States.

The gun haters do not care about national security, nor do they not care about your rights.

The 2nd Amendment  does two things, it protects our nation, and it protects our government.  When the pen fails to protect the government, the 2nd Amendment ensures the people have the ability to protect the government through force.

Hitler would be proud of the anti-gun protestors.

How Low Can The United States Go

Rate This Article

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?

The federal government and wall street are going to make us homeless in the very nation that our forefathers conquered. We have slowly lost our birthright, and that birthright is to live in peace within our community, to own land, to home a home, to raise our children as we see fit.

All of the people who voted for obama, I hope you are happy. You are going to get your change, but maybe not the change you had hoped for.

Rahm Emanuel calls for nation wide ban on assault-weapons

Rate This Article

During a ceremony Monday morning at the Chicago Police Department graduation, Rahm Emanuel called for nation wide ban on assault-weapons.

“It’s time that we as a city have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a state have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a country have an assault weapons ban,”

Seems to me Rahm Emanuel needs to get his facts straight. Assault weapons have been banned and regulated since 1934.

Lets not get semi-auto firearms and full auto / selective fire firearms mixed up.

For a weapon to be deemed an “assault rifle”, it has to be capable of either selective fire in burst, or full auto. Those weapons have been banned and regulated with the National Firearms Act of 1934.

So Rahm Emanuel would have us ban something that is already banned? How is that supposed to work out?

Since Illinois has some of the highest crime rates in the nation, Rahm Emanuel discussion on gun control is null and void.

Fix the problems in your own home, then worry about your neighbors. In fact, dont bother worrying about your neighbors, we will take care of our own.

Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban

Rate This Article

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.

I wish I would have bought a case of Russian made AK-47s back in the late 1980s when they were $75 each. They would be worth a small fortune right about now.

Its not the guns that are to blame, its the mentally ill shooters that are to blame.

Never underestimate the power of liberals in large groups. As they will try to exploit tragedies like the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting for their own gain.

But that is how socialist work, they will take the people when they are at their weakest, and try to push some kind of new law through congress. Now is not the time to talk about gun control. Give the people time to morn, then lets talk about the issues.

And the issue is not the guns, but how a mentally ill person could get into the school.

Its sad that our nation has come to this, that our children are not safe, that we have to worry about our safety wherever we go.

The USA Is Doomed

Rate This Article

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistThe United States of America is being bled to death. It will not be long before the bleeding takes its toll, as to which society will have some serious issues to face. Do we stop the bleeding, or do we allow the Federal Reserve to print more money out of thin air?

In the following article I will provide three examples of how the United States is being bled to death from within. All of these examples are based off actual people, and actual events. The names are not being disclosed to protect their privacy.

Example 1

This family has been on some kind of welfare for at least 20 years, and for 2 generations.

The grandmother was on welfare for the birth of all of her children.

The children were raised with medicaid providing health insurance, and food stamps providing nutrition assistance.

When one of the children reached 18 years of age, the grandmother applied for, and received social security disability for the child. So now, the grown child will never have to work, and will receive health care for the rest of its life, and without ever having to work a single day in her life.


Besides being black why would anyone vote for obama

Rate This Article

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.

Obama signed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) into law. Which allows the government to detain people with no due process. What doe that mean? It means federal agents can kick in your front door in the middle of the night, and you will just “disappear”.

One of the corner stones of our legal system is that no person shall be devoid of life, liberty or property without due process of law.  But yet our government can kill US citizens at will?

And people vote for that kind of government, are they stupid or just retarded?  At least retards have an excuse for poor decisions.  What excuse do people have for voting for obama?

Forcing you to buy a product – Would you approve of someone ordering you to purchase a product? Go to the local grocery store, decide you do not want anything. As you walk out the doors a police officer is there who orders you to return to the store until you buy something. If you do not buy anything, you will be issued a ticket. But instead of a grocery store and the police, its the IRS who is going to be fining people who do not buy insurance.

You think the middle class is having a rough time now? Just wait until they are forced to buy healthcare insurance.

You think small businesses are having a rough time? Just want until they have to start providing healthcare to their employees.

Someone tell me why anyone would vote for obama?

Jobs and free trade – Were you hoping obama would bring jobs back to the USA? Then why is he signing free trade agreements with South Korea, Panama and Colombia? Do you really think people in Panama and Colombia can afford a new Chevy truck? Those free trade agreements are so companies can exploit cheap labor in those countries.

How are we supposed to get jobs when obama continues to give our jobs away?

You want to know where the middle class will be working in a few years?  At places like walmart, starbucks, mcdonalds, burger king,,, because the good paying manufacturing jobs are going overseas.

Someone explain to me why anyone would vote for obama?

A Nation Greatly Divided

Rate This Article

There is an interesting article in the LA Times – Mitt Romney leads a party packed with paranoids and fabulists. The word fabulists simply means liars. In other words, the republican party is filled with paranoid liars.

The cartoon shows an older couple compared to a younger couple. With the younger couple wearing an obama pin.

A few days ago there was a news program talking about how the younger generations are growing more liberal, while the older conservatives are fading away. For example, for the first time in history, less then 50% of the voters say they are Protestant Christians.

Not only is the nation divided by political parties, we are also divided by liberalism and conservatism, and we are divided by religion, or rather the lack of religion.

Where is this trend of a growing liberal population going to take the United States? It is going to financially bankrupt the US.

Differences between conservatives and liberals

The heart of conservationism is the belief that people should take responsibility for their actions.  Isn’t that the way its always been?  Steal a horse and you get hung, its pretty simple.  Do not work, and you shall not eat, sounds good to me.


The US can not continue on its current path

Rate This Article

survivalistThe US can not continue on its current path of excessive spending,
Tax payers are not the cash cow for fortune 500 companies,
The FBI is not the private security firm for hollywood or the recording industry of America,
Public funds should not be used to bail out banks,
Public funds should not be used to bail out wall street,
Public funds should not be used to bail out any company,
Government employees should be held accountable for their actions,
CEOs of fortune 500 companies should be held account for their actions with prison time,
The US is not the worlds police force,
Welfare recipients should have to give something back to the community,
The US should not have to answer to the world trade organization,
Illegal immigrates should be prosecuted just like other criminals,
Elected officials should be held accountable for laws that harm the public health,
Elected officials should not make a career from public money,
Companies should not be allowed to write their own laws,
The public should not be forced to purchase a product,
The government should have a budget, just like everyone else.

The downfall of the US is going to be a combination of entitlements, combined with leaches that will suck that last drop of tax payer money from the government. These “leaches” are not people, but corporations. So its the people that are in control of the corporations that are sucking the US dry.

Why are wall street and the banks entitled to special treatment? Why is public money used as a substitute for sound financial dealings?

Person or small business makes poor decisions, they have to file for bankruptcy. Nobody bails out John Doe who works at the local welding shop.

Bank or wall street makes bad decisions, the government writes them a check.

How are people supposed to be held accountable for their action if the government turns a blind eye?

you know what would be nice, if I could convince the government to force everyone in the US to buy my product. Just think about the profits I could bring in. Well, that is what the insurance companies and obama has done. we are no longer free people, we are a cash cow waiting for big business to tap into.

Sooner or later, something will have to give.

what if obama is reelected

Rate This Article

The economy is still bouncing around. Some people say we are in a recovery, while others say we are heading into a second recession.

What is the worst thing that can happen?

I think the absolute worst thing that can happen is for obama to be reelected.

The second worst thing that can happen, is for mitt to be elected.

The US is on a road of self-destruction. Unless there is a total change of leadership, there is no getting off the path.

Even if a lot of new people are elected into congress, there will bee too many old dogs left in place to stop any real change from happening.

Excessive spending

Back in the 1980s, we outspent the russians on military spending. It was impossible for the russians to keep up, so they gave up.

The problem is, the level of spending never stopped. We have so many social benefits programs now, its crazy.

Where do we cut the spending at? Should money for roads be cut, how about free school lunches, food stamps, low income public housing, foreign aid.

Where are the obama spending cuts? Or are we just going to continue spending until the US goes bankrupt.

So where do we cut the spending?

In 2008 the federal government bailed out the banks and wall street. From what it looks like, anytime a bank gets in trouble, the government is going to bail them out. But what about the everyday person that needs help? We do not get bailed out. Its just the opposite, we lose everything we have.

For things to change, there has to be a reduction in spending. The problem is, people that are drawing social benefits think they are entitled to something. I know for a fact there are people out there that know how to play the system. One baby gets grown and out the door, its time to squeeze out another one, just to keep the welfare checks and food stamps coming.

If there was a reduction in food stamps, or other welfare programs, there would be massive panic, outrage and protest in the streets.

Without food stamps, how do we expect people to eat? Can we really expect the freeloaders to get a job? Yea right, I seriously doubt it.

There are some people on food stamps that just need a helping hand, and that is fine.

Then there are the people who work the system, draw benefits from the government and have no intention of getting a job.

Foreign Aid

Then there is the foreign aid. Why are we sending money overseas when we have homeless and hungry people on our streets.

Foreign aid has been around for decades and its probably not going anywhere anytime soon.

Has obama stopped foreign aid?

Free trade

Free trade is a cancer that is eating away at our nation, and has been eating away for over close to 2 decades.

Obama is not going to do anything about free trade. Even if we elect a bunch of new people into congress they can not do anything about trade.

Trade is up to the president, and obama is not going to do anything about it.

In the past 4 years obama has made things worse for this nation

Mandated insurance
obama signed HR 347, which established no free speech zones
obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (Senate Bill 1867)

If anything, obama has striped more rights away from people then any other president.

We need to ask ourselves, do we need 4 more years of this?

Post your comments in this forum thread – what will happen if obama is re-elected?

Not the land of the free anymore

Rate This Article

Over the past decade we have seen a new type of warfare evolve. This is a war not necessarily against enemies on foreign soil, but rather a war on US citizens on domestic and foreign soil

Under president bush, Iraq, Afghanistan and the al-Qaeda network were taken down.

Under obama, we have seen people killed before they can become a threat. The US government has even killed US citizens on foreign soil with no due process.

This brings up several ethics questions.

Is it right to kill someone before they commit a crime? Isn’t the whole justice system built around bringing people to justice “after” they have broken the law? So what happens if the government starts arresting and or killing people just because those people were talking about breaking the law?

There is a difference between talking and doing. Can the justice system sentence someone to death without a trial, and without a crime? If there was no other crime besides talking, can the person be deemed a threat?

Where does society draw the line? Do we arrest, convict and imprison the husband who talked about hitting his wife? If so, how long should the person be held in prison?

Would it correct for society to imprison everyone who talked about breaking a law, but never actually committed a crime?

Instead of trying to predict the future like in the Minority Report, the government relies on intelligence agencies like the CIA.

But what is the real difference between the cia trying to predict crimes like in the Minority Report, and using physics like in the movies?

There is old question that if someone could go back and kill hitler before he came into power, should we? But on the other hand, what if we are wrong about the predictions, and an innocent person was murdered.

Is it acceptable for society to err on the side of caution? If so, where do we drawn the line?

Will it be acceptable for police officers to shoot and kill someone due to repeated calls for family violence?

Will it be acceptable for police officers to kill people who had a little bit too much to drink? After all, its better to put the person to death before they can harm anyone else. So if someone tries to get in their car after downing a few drinks at a bar, the police should just shoot and kill that person?

Lets say a wife likes to cheat. So law enforcement should lock her in prison? That way her husband does not catch her cheating and shoot her and her boyfriend? Or is better to lock the husband up so the wife can run around as much as she wants?

If the government is given free reign to kill people before they commit a crime, who is at greater fault? The person for talking about how they want to commit a crime, or the government that acts on those words?

After all, where does society draw the line in protecting others?

Now that the National Defense Authorization Act has been signed into law, anyone accused of being a terrorist can be detained by the military.

If the government wanted to, this opens up a whole new range of abuses. We just thought what happened to Randy Weaver and his family was bad. Randy Weavers wife was shot and killed by a sniper, and nobody went to prison over it.

With the new law, I doubt there would even be congressional hearings on the murder of US citizens.

Who in the government has the right to detain or murder US citizens at will? Is this “really” a law that should have ever been presented before congress? What would the founding father have to say about a law that allows the government to detain people without due process?

In most states the accused person has to be brought before a judge within 24 hours of being arrested. But now, just declare the person is a suspected terrorist and the persons rights are waived.  The US is no longer the land of the free.  As our freedoms and rights are slowly being stripped away.
