Election Day – What It Means for Us

Today, we go to the polls… However, not nearly as many of us will go as should be going. I realize voting isn’t the most exciting thing in the world and that nobody enjoys standing in those long lines…

But the thing is, it’s an important right that we should exercise and people all over the world wish they could have the same opportunity that we do today.

It should come as no surprise that I’m a Republican, even though I believe the majority of politicians (both Democrat and Republican) are crooks. (Side Note: 37% of Senators are lawyers.)

It appears as if the Republicans are going to gain control of the Senate, which will hopefully lead to more things getting passed, including the Keystone pipeline. However, since anything can happen today, there’s obviously a chance that Democrats maintain control and Republicans don’t win as many seats as predicted.

If this happens, I believe we will have another huge run on firearms and ammunition because people will be afraid the Democrats will introduce several new anti-gun bills (which is highly likely.) Prices will skyrocket once again, and finding ammo will be difficult just like it was several months ago.

The thing is, a critical part of being prepared in life is to be in such a state of readiness that you are not affected by the political landscape or the trends in society. What I mean is, if Democrats crush Republicans today, I thankfully don’t have to quickly go out and buy an AR-15 or try and buy thousands of rounds of ammunition. I already have plenty of firearms and enough ammunition to last me a lifetime.

The world can do whatever it wants (since most of it is out of my control), and I will always chug along and be as prepared as I can for whatever happens. If for some reason you’re not satisfied with your current “preparation status” take a few minutes today to write down what you need to change and then take immediate action.

Also, if you don’t have as much ammo as you wish, you may want to head to Walmart ASAP, before the day is over.

The democrats keeping the senate has no effect as long as the GOP has the house. It’s deadlock. Any run on ammo or whatever is BS hysteria. People are idiots. Further, even if the GOP wins, I fully expect them to screw up. They always do.


Voting isn’t only a privilege but a responsibility. The direction our government takes is up to each one of by the way we cast our vote at the polling place. Remember that those who don’t vote don’t have a leg to stand on when they try to voice their disdain for the elected officials.


No line when we voted at 1030 this morning. The poll worker just about drug me in to have someone to vote. 8 booths with only 2 occupied when we got there. 3 occupied when we left after voting. And surprise, surprise, been winning on our candidates.


594 passed in Washington state with a lame 17% voter turnout. Hickenlooper kept his governors seat in Colorado by fewer than 15,000 votes.

it does matter.
