    The most important election in your lifetime is on november 6, 2018

    We are one election away from LOSING AMERICA as a Constitutional Republic if the Democratic Party wins the Midterm Elections in November.
    .
    If the Democratic Party wins the Midterm Elections, America will progress towards becoming a Socialist nation.

  3. But we thought you just secured it all with Blackout Brett?

  4. I need your expertise, OPS. You see, as a conservative who is big on freedom and liberty, there are things in both columns that I like, and things in both columns that I completely despise.
    .
    Neither party gets the whole picture. To me they both support big govt. interests at the expense of stupid people who cannot think for themselves. So if I choose column A, I am voting against my core. If I choose column B, I am voting against my core.
    .
    So, which core would you have me vote against?
    .
    Can't we just return to the Constitution (as flawed as it may be) and vote for PEOPLE and Liberty, for the time being?

    There's only one answer, if you want the items on the Democrat side for our country, vote Democrat, but if you feel that those items wouldn't be a benefit to our country vote Republican. Your choice.

    I agree with this, up to a point. Unfortunately, like most things it just is not that simple.

    While this is just a short list, it is a good representative of the differences between the tow "sides". I am definitely Conservative, but there are some things that I do agree with on the left side. For instance, I do agree that abortion should be legal, with some restrictions. Personally, I am against abortion, but think it should be legal. Contradicting myself? I don't think so. I feel that if a woman decides to get an abortion, she is going to get whether it is legal or not and she should be able to get proper medical care.

    And this is just one small example of why it would be nice to be able to vote for the individual rather than the party. Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming partisanship and corruption that exists in the system today, this is very difficult to do.

    If politicians would actually take their oath to support and defend the Constitution seriously, none of this would be a problem. Unfortunately, politicians on both sides of the aisle seem to be more concerned with maintaining their power base than with actually doing their jobs. The result is what we are seeing now with the left fighting against anything the Trump administration proposes regardless of what it is or what it would result in rather than taking a look at the proposals and treating them based on their merits rather than who proposes them. We see the same thing from the right fighting against anything the left proposes regardless of its merits. This has been building for quite a few years, but seems to be worse than ever before during the current administration.

    I wish there was a nice easy and safe solution to this, but I am unable to see one.

  7. Pro Abortion - Against Abortion
    I am against abortion.
    A states rights issue.
    Cannot legislate morality, creates an underground market.
    .
    .
    Socialism - Capitalism
    This is a moot question.
    We have a Keynesian system run by Central Banks.
    Both contribute heavily toward socialism/statism.
    .
    .
    Atheism - Christianity
    This is a moot question.
    The 1st Amendment directly applies. Honor and defend it.
    .
    .
    Big government - Small government
    This is a moot question.
    We have a Keynesian system run by Central Banks.
    Both contribute heavily toward expansive, overreaching government, socialism/statism.
    .
    .
    Same Sex Marriage - Man and Woman
    This is a moot question.
    I am hetero. I do not care about what others do behind closed doors. I do not even want to know.
    There are more important questions concerning the running of our government, as well as protecting the rights and freedoms of people.
    .
    .
    Anti-Gun (NRA) - Pro-Gun (NRA)
    The 2nd Amendment directly applies. Honor and defend it.
    NRA should be abolished due to NRA creating many of the problems itself. It is another corrupt lobby organization.
    .
    .
    Higher Taxes - Lower Taxes
    This is a moot question.
    We have a Keynesian system run by Central Banks.
    Both contribute heavily toward expansive, overreaching government, socialism/statism.
    .
    .
    Illegal Immigrants - Legal Immigrants
    End All Welfare.
    This is a fallacy set up to pit people against people which directly promotes socialism.
    "Registering" with the govt. to become legal also allows them Welfare and other Social benefits that they would otherwise not have access to.
    "Illegal" by definition is not "registering" with the govt., thereby the FED Govt Bureaucrats do not get their cut.
    ALL people pay taxes via sales tax each and every time they buy a stick of gum, gasoline, TV, washer/dryer, furniture, building supplies, etc.
    If the FED wants/needs money, they can BEG the states for it. Then maybe we will get somewhere.
    .
    * Which is exactly why I am opposed to a "national" sales tax. This would remove states rights and the FEDS would establish increases which they would "say" they need. Let the FEDS BEG and we will have more control over our tax dollars.
    .
    .
    Anyone Can Vote - Voter ID Only
    This absolutely should be left up to the local PRECINCTS.
    If you are that concerned about voter fraud, get off of your own lazy bum and work the precinct yourself - just like I do every election!
    Leave me out of your problems and address them yourself. I do not want to incur your costs, National BIO-ID, etc. for local issues.
    .
    .
    Anti-Police/ICE - Pro-Police/ICE
    ABOLISH this Police State.
    Police should return to LOCAL. Sheriffs should be Constitutional.
    I do not want to pay for or fund your corrupt national police force, MRAPS, military gear for domestic issues, etc.
    If control is given back to local police, there would be more local accountability. If the town/city is big enough and the locals want to pay for an MRAP good for them, let them buy one. I do not want FED oversight on my tax dime. My community does not need it. We have a National Guard -- and local militia.
    .
    .
    Open Borders - Strong Borders
    I am soooo sick of this "border" crap.
    End the Welfare.
    This is the Great Melting Pot, the Beacon of Liberty, where people who want to work should work and come here to promote freedom and liberty. End the welfare and this will happen.
    .
    .
    Obamacare - No Obamacare
    I do not want either.
    RomneyCare (R) was taken by Obama to the national level. I am not interested in a republican govt. version.
    HealthCare should return to the Free Market to reduce cost and improve efficiency so that I and others can actually afford it.
    Government has no business whatsoever in "healthcare".
    .
    .
    .
    With all this sidetracking which both parties fall for and repeat over and over again, it is no wonder why we are where we are. The important discussions never take place.

    IE: Central Banks, FED, IRS, Bill of Rights, How much money in taxes are spent on Global Initiatives, etc., etc., etc........ which is exactly why we need and should demand an audit.

    I wouldn't label ICE a police state, they do a whole lot of items that are good for this country, Remove/deport illegals like (MS13) that have committed felonies, stop drugs from entering the country, stop child and human interstate trafficking, stop interstate weapons trafficking.
    .
    These are items that the local police couldn't do due to jurisdiction problems.
    .
    The local police have their hands full without adding to it.
    .
    Good post though.

    You make a pretty good point about ICE, OPS, I guess I could live with that for a while as we address the other important issues 😊
