This won’t be my usual post.
As many of you know I do a lot of research. I report what I find and offer conclusions based on those findings. This report is more of a look at the big picture based on all the research I’ve done, my vast experience of following politics, and the changes I’ve seen over the last 40 years. Yes, its true, things have changed dramatically over the last 40 years. We can access more information than ever before. We should be so much more informed than we are. News has become front and center to life and now has permeated our culture. 40 years ago, news consisted of two, half hour programs a day….one local, one national….repeated at 11 pm. There was also one or two local papers….mostly used for the coupons contained within them. No one in my circle ever even thought to subscribe to the NYT or the WSJ, those were for the elite business types from New York and Washington. Today, news is 24/7 on at least 6 major cable stations, the three networks are still alive and well, and the NYT, WSJ, WaPo, LA Times, and many others have websites that reach millions. Then there’s the addition of talk radio, and a gazillion news oriented websites. All leading to a bevy of sources that offer news, and commentary on that news, for every varying ideology. No matter how much we try to deny it, most of us live in our own echo chambers and listen to, or read, only the sources that agree with our preconceived world view.
So what does any of that have to do with the election of 2018? Everything! Because we live in echo chambers, we are extremely divided in what we know and what we think we know. I have written dozens and dozens of reports, exposing corruption. But not only hasn’t anyone on the left read them….they refuse to read them. The voices in their echo chamber will not allow them to even consider what we have to say. So at this point, any partisan observer would say the right does the same thing. There is no equivalence! Conservatives want more speech, more debate over ideas, and more freedom. The left leaning media refuses to debate ideas, rather find victimhood in every action and idea put forward. But I’m not here to criticize the left or its media. I want to appeal to democrats that still believe in America and are puzzled by what they see happening to their party.
At the top of this page, I posted a video of an ANTIFA protest. These folks are not protestors…..they are young people, organized, and funded by interests that would destroy America……they are anarchists. Democrats should be concerned.
Black Lives Matter is another radical anarchist group that wants change in America. The name and original intent was laudable. It changed! Their “protests” became about killing cops and ending law enforcement…in other words….reaping havoc on America. Democrats should be concerned.
Then there’s the remnants of Indivisible and the Occupy movement. Protesting every policy to secure our borders, vet refugees, round-up gangs, or support law enforcement. Democrats should be concerned.
And what about the noble “Me-Too” movement. For sure, this was an important initiative by women to bring awareness to sexual assault and sexual harassment. But it soon manifested itself into a disregard for the bedrock principles of innocent until proven guilty and the presumption of innocence. Democrats should be concerned.
This was never more on display than in the Kavanaugh hearings. An accusation was made, and we were all supposed to just believe the accusation, without proof, and allow a good man to be destroyed. Barely considering his record, all that was heard everyday in the left echo chamber was that Kavanaugh would end abortion and support corporations. I get that the left doesn’t agree that the constitution should be interpreted as written. For decades they have used the courts to make the changes to our country that couldn’t be passed by congress……like it or not, that’s not how it’s supposed to work.
As if feeding off the anarchy of these radical Marxist groups, the democrat leaders encouraged the violence:
The so-called “protestors”, encouraged by democrat leaders, became harassers and terrorizers. Civil discourse on policy has been thrown out the window along with any pretense of debate, replaced with violence and physical confrontation
I only show you all this because there is nothing from the right that comes close to duplicating what is coming from the left. The right has been silenced, shut down, beaten, verbally and physically abused, and harassed…..but we are not victims. We continue to fight everyday for policies that will make America great again. But let me say that I am no fan of the republican party. The parties have become so corrupt, that neither serve the people…..they serve only the special interests. The republican electorate was poised to eliminate the corruption within its own ranks. But then the democrat party went off the rails. The parties have manipulated the entire process.
I am vehemently opposed to the republican party. But what choice do we have? The republican party has been pulled kicking and screaming to make the changes needed to return America to prosperity. Half the republican politicians in congress still oppose those changes. We need to give those that support the Trump agenda the help they need to continue the success achieved so far. Democrats and Independents that supported Trump, now must support congressional republicans. The democrat party has been infiltrated with virulent radicals and communists seeking to destroy our very country in favor of anarchy and socialism. I know there are many, many millions of democrats and independents who see what I see. You voted for Trump. But now America needs you again! Please do not return democrats to power. As distasteful as it might be, we must allow republicans to maintain their control for now and continue the job that has been started. There is no doubt that we will have to drag them over the finish line….but we can do it….with your help. Send a message to the democrat party, that Americans do not want communism, socialism or anarchy….we want prosperity and more freedom from government. Please, please, please……if you care about your country, about your future…..then help our president by voting for those that will support his policies….. vote republicans into the congress on November 6th.
