Power Play – Part 1


Friends, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything.  Life, work, holidays, etc. all seem to take up the time that I would normally use to write.  Now it’s grabbing what time I have to take a breath or two and organize my thoughts.

Last month, the Democrats were elected to take control of the House next year, and the Republicans retained control of the Senate.  I fear that there will be nothing but chaos and confusion coming out of the House as the Democrats have it in their minds to target the President for nothing more than political persecution.  Also buried in the mess of things the Democrats want to address will be healthcare, gun control, taxes, and immigration. Nothing good will come from the Democrats being in the House.

The Democrats should look at France, and the open rebellion the French have against President Macron over taxes, immigration, and the lack of apparent accountability & empathy the Macron administration has for the citizens.  I read that a gallon of diesel fuel is over $7.00, and 65% of that is taxes. President Macron wants a 6% increase to fund a green agenda. In a country of where people run out of a monthly paycheck in three weeks, there is definitely a disconnect.

The European Union has an immigration problem (this is also part of the issue in France).  The EU governing body (unelected, from what I understand) has dictated immigration quotas for each country.  Migrants/refugees stream in, and countries like Germany & France displace their own citizens & support them with welfare.  This is something that the Democrats also want – unlimited immigrants to this country and support them with tax dollars in the hope that the immigrants will vote Democrat, keeping them in power.

Immigration is always a touchy subject for some people.  For me, immigrants must follow the rule of law to come into our country, whether it’s to work, study, become a citizen, or to seek asylum.  There are standards and laws that must be followed, but the Democrats don’t seem to care. “It’s for the children!” they cry. Cow patties, I say!  It’s about power and control.

Invariably, the question comes up why don’t these people who want to crash through our borders stay in their own countries and fix their country’s problems?  I’ve got a few thoughts on that:

First, many of these countries are dictatorships with failing economies (think Venezuela).  Governments that are oppressive to their people, sometimes brutally. This usually leads to a two-class society – the privileged and poor – without hardly any opportunity to advance.  Survival is now the goal.

Second, gang violence.  There are reports of gangs ruling the streets in conjunction with government approval floating around on the Internet.  If true, another reason to leave especially with the next point –

Third and last on my short list – gun control.  Most if not all of these countries have repressive forms of gun control.  Only the government (dictators) and criminals (gangs) have weapons, and the citizens have no form of self defence against either.  After all, why should you arm people who represent a threat to your power?

All of the above points represent portions of the the Democrat’s agenda – immigrants that will vote to keep the Party in power, tax burdens to support the immigrants to buy their fealty & to impoverish the citizenry (if you’re working to survive, you don’t have time to rebel), and disarm those that would rebel.

The Democrats double down on this power grab by apparent voter fraud.  California’s “ballot harvesting” is probably one of the most egregious forms of fraud I have ever seen.  Having the dead vote and the miraculous appearance of ballots during the aftermath of elections only confirms what I suspect.  The exclamation point is during seven contested elections of where the Republican candidate was leading, the elections were won by the Democratic candidate – this defies the odds and common sense.

And it just doesn’t stop there…

The political parties pass laws that affect the people they represent, but exempt themselves from those very laws.  The prime example of this is the ACA, otherwise known as Obamacare. And what laws they do pass that they would fall under, they are not prosecuted.  The prime example of this is the multiple instances of Hillary Clinton’s favoritism to donors of the Clinton Foundation and security breaches with emails.  There is a blatant disregard of laws by the ruling elite, and anyone with half a brain can see the hypocrisy, the lies, and the crimes committed by the politicians who wish to have unfettered rule.

It’s no wonder the people of the United States do not have confidence in their government nor in the political party’s abilities to represent them nor confine themselves to the Constitution.

So where do we go from here?  I hope to address this in Part 2.
