“Education Reform” bill is a Coup attempt

Published

on

This is no joke. The attempt to nationalize elections and remove voter ID requirements, election redistricting, and many other safeguards on our democracy is not an effort to make things more fair. It is a direct, blatant attempt to take over our government and replace America as we have known it!

Wikipedia: A coup d’état (kuːdeɪˈtɑː; French for “blow of state”) or coup is the removal and seizure of a government and its powers. Typically, it is an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power by a political faction, the military, or a dictator.

Audacity seems to be the primary skillset of the current Democrat Party. They have decided to go all-in with their boldest and most outrageous proposals. The “election reform” bill is the latest example. It would be more accurately called the “election takeover” bill. One of its major provisions is the removal of power from the states. That is what sustains us as “The United States.”

We are not the collective individuals of America, we are the “United States.” Ours is not a democracy where everyone votes as a person. We are a democratic Republic where everyone votes as citizens of their cities, states and our nation. The powers not given to the federal government in our Constitution are reserved to the states and their citizens. We intentionally limit the powers of Washington DC because that is the main threat to states’ rights.

The Ultimate Price

In the Revolutionary War we saw what a strong central government would do to retain power over citizens. They would confiscate and outlaw private firearms, tax people increasingly for anything the leaders wanted, isolate and oppress various groups of people based on faith, political affiliation, race, gender, age, etc. They would take people’s property at will, lodge soldiers in private homes, confiscate crops and livestock, and even murder dissenters publicly to keep the population in fear.

Nobody had a voice unless they were held in political favor. There was no appeal to wrongful conviction. Accused was the same as guilty and the death penalty was immediate and common. That is stage two of a federal takeover.

If you trust government more than yourself then it might seem safe and sensible to give them more and more power. But we have long since passed the tipping point where they have more power than we do. Remember the famous line, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”? Well, all the leftist politicians are missing at present is the ability to take elections out of your hands.

They are already spending us into bankruptcy. It’s virtually impossible to pay off a multi-trillion dollar debt. The interest alone is beyond our capacity to keep up. They control the media and have legions of enablers and apologists on the air daily explaining how their audacious takeovers of your rights are actually “good for you.” They have taken control of our schools and inserted concepts into the curricula that will assure future generations won’t seek to become free again. Once Capitalism is demonized and simple descriptive language is made into a crime, then it’s easy to take control.

Independent Ownership is a threat to government control 

Small businesses are the heartbeat of America because they are run by and owned by individuals. They are a bastion of freedom. And freedom is a threat to the government. When people cannot run their own business, own weapons to defend themselves from threats, teach their children what they believe is true, vote for representatives that they believe will truly act on their behalf, and be allowed to gather in churches with others where their beliefs can be strengthened, then independence is no longer ours.

We once made a Declaration of our Independence and pledged our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor in order to achieve it. Our founders went through hell for many years in order to shake off the oppressive burden of a strong central government. Our relatives died at the hands of that government. And now our representatives have decided that their welfare is more important than ours.

Take away the ability to resist and you win the war

They are trying to make it impossible for us to organize, defend and resist them. They’ve used Covid as a cover to help destroy small businesses, outlaw church gatherings, cause families to fear each other, and condition everyone to fear the flu more than the loss of freedom. They have put forward their audacious plans to limit, register and then confiscate guns, to require mind pollution through sinister schemes like Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, and woke political correctness in daily speech. They’ve passed immense and cancerous legislation under the guise of “Covid Relief” and “Infrastructure” renewal. In this legislation they have hidden as much as 80% of the spending because it was not related to the bills and it paid off the various supporters by funding their pet projects.

They have also infected our legislation by putting in place new rules and policies as earmarks or amendments to the bills that we never would have accepted in open discussion and voting.

Now they have put leftist leaders into the major positions of our government at the highest levels. These people then appoint thousands of regulators and other officials who infect every agency from coast to coast. The regulations they put in place are done TO us, not with us nor even with our direct approval.

We are becoming a nation, not of laws, but a nation of regulations.

Citizens pass laws, Bureaucrats pass regulations.

Once the infection is complete we will no longer have representation. If we have no voice then all they need for complete control (dictatorship) is to take over our election process so they can always guarantee the outcome.

America is gasping for air, the air of freedom. This election “reform” is the choke hold that will suffocate our independence. Oppose it with all your might. Speak up while you still have a voice. And, don’t ever vote for a leftist again until long after we have had a decade or two to purge the damage done so far by this crowd!

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
