It Would Appear the Democrats Are Stuck on Stupid

Even before President Trump became President Trump, the Dems have been working overtime trying to get him out of office.  They act as if, by destroying the man, they can reclaim the office of presidency.

News item… it doesn’t work that way.  First, I don’t think they will drive him from office.  Even if they impeach him, it takes 2/3 of the senate to convict him.  That is just not going to happen.  Moreover, if they took a few minutes to think about it, they would know it.  When a crook frames someone and gets caught at it, it’s the one doing the framing that suffers.

However, assuming they did drive President Trump from office, it would just make matters worse for them.  That would mean Vice President Pence would become President Pence and, from what I can tell, his ideas are far more conservative than President Trump’s.  Moreover, VP Pence has legislative experience.  He knows how the system works and likely will be able to make it work better.

I don’t know everything about such things, but if I were one of the Dems and I wanted to raise taxes and bring a bunch of illegals across the border to vote for me, I don’t think it would be such a good idea to let VP Pence ascend to the presidency.  Not only is he more conservative, but he has strong Christian values.  It would be much more difficult to find skeletons in his closet.

If he became president, all you would be able to do would be to wait and hope to beat him in the next election.  Given his record and the will and desires of the people of the flyover country, I don’t think that will happen.  Moreover, VP Pence is younger and would be able to spend ten years in The White House, not just eight.

It sounds like a pretty stupid plan to me, but if you Dems insist, go ahead.  You won’t be hurting the Republicans and you just might help us conservatives a little.

(By the way, he just might be able to find Clinton’s E-mails and send her and Obama to prison.  Not likely, but it is a thought.)

I have an Idea (2)

No need to build a wall.

Winston Churchill said that socialists need walls to hold people in. (my words, such as East Berlin)  Capitalists need walls to keep people out.  (my words, such as the US)

Solution: turn Mexico from socialism to capitalism.  The US is already going from capitalism to socialism.  At some point, people will stop coming north and start going south.  (oddly, beach front property in southern California will again be affordable.  Property in Baha California will be outrageous.)

To be sure, there is one problem with this approach.  Getting the US to become socialist seems to be simple.  Getting Mexico to become capitalist is likely a tad bit more difficult than impossible.  It just might be easier to build the wall, though I’m not sure.

How to Destroy a Nation

I am hardly the epitome of a great person.  I have made countless bad decisions, some, oddly, on purpose.  I thought that I could circumvent the consequences.

However, I’m hardly an ogre.  To the best of my knowledge, I murdered not one.  I try to be honest.  I try not to hurt people.  I neither drink nor smoke and never did.

Enough already.  It’s not my point to brag, but I’m sure you get my point.  The fact is, I do love this country.  I spent nine years in the Marines doing my little part to keep us free.  I even spent one year in Vietnam,  pretty much terrified.

However, if I decided I wanted to destroy this country, the first thing I would do is to destroy the family structure.  Well, I guess someone beat me to it.  The concept of one father, one mother and children is about gone.  Satan, through the communists Soviets, has been very busy.  Something tells me he does not like this country or what it stands for.

First, the idea of marriage has been completely redefined.  Second, children are being reprogrammed by the public education system.  They have forced God out of our schools so that they can put things into our children’s minds that are completely foreign to the principles that this country was founded on.

Third, they have made the state the main provider of sustenance, not the father.  Hence, there is no more need for the father to remain in the home.  He serves no purpose other than, possibly abusing the wife and children, which profits Satan and the communists.  After all, children are the future of any country.

The state has made marriage and divorce fast and easy, even to the point of the “No fault” divorces.  Believe it or not, there was a time when people actually had to present a valid reason to a judge in order to get a divorce.  Indeed there are some couples who get divorces for no other reason than for tax purposes.

Then, of course there are those who don’t even bother with the marriage at all.  Who wants to make a real commitment?   It is just paper, right?

…and so it is that the true concept of the family continues to fade off into obscurity.  Most assuredly,  if it is not soon reversed, our nation will follow.  I’m not a prophet.  It doesn’t take a prophet to see the future in this case.

Then, as Nikita  Khrushchev said, the Russians will just march in and take over without firing a shot.  However, they might have to hurry.  Mexico might beat them to it.

Home Made Guns

Some have the allusion that it takes a big factory to build guns.  Yet, David Marshall Williams made a semi-automatic rifle while incarcerated in prison.  He built it in the prison machine shop.

Basically, it was the one used by hundreds of thousands of soldiers during WWII.  In some some ways, it was a better gun for war than those that were designed and built in the big factories.

I have no doubt that a good blacksmith with the proper tools can build rifles or sidearms with nothing more than a little of the right raw materials and a few good tools.

Some might want to consider that when they say we should make guns illegal.  At least the ones we have now have serial numbers and can be traced to some degree.  If people start making them in basements, we won’t know where they come from, or, for that matter, what country they come from.

 

Just a Little Lie

The Dems would like you to believe that the Republicans control the Senate.  Not true, that is, unless they decide to change the rules.  Right now, in order to pass a bill, it takes 60 votes.  The Republicans only have fifty-one.  Unless the rule is changed, the 49 senators can stop anything and everything.  …and they have been doing a lot of that lately.  So far, they have stopped over 100 in 2017.

One bill they were not able to stop was the tax reduction and that is because they used one rule to get around the other.  The Republicans passed the bill with 51 votes.  (As a result of having to resort to this method, they were not able to make all the tax reductions permanent.  After a time, some individual taxes will return to what they were in 2017.  Hopefully, between now and then, the changes will be made permanent, or at least extended.  It sort of depends on if the Dems block the effort.)

I guess this is the sort of thing that happens when we let lawyers run our government.

Unintended Consequences

When I was in the eighth grade, I made the trip from California to Arkansas to see my brother, a Republican.  During my stay with him, he and his wife were going to vote in the Democrat primary.  At that time, it served no purpose to vote in the Republican primary.  There was but one Republican running and he wasn’t likely the win the general election.
I suggested that he vote for the worst of those running among the Democrats.  It seemed to me a good way to give the Republican an advantage.  He told me he was going to vote for the best Democrat.  That confused me until he told me why.  “What if the worst Democrat wins?”

To be sure, during the recent presidential primaries, Donald Trump was not my favorite.  Although I did like his promises, he was an unknown.  I didn’t know if he would follow through on the promises.  Moreover, he had no government experience.  My favorite was Senator Cruz.  Not only did he think as I did, but he had already proved himself several times.
I did find it interesting that one by one dropped out, seemingly determined on the way they felt about illegal immigration.  Those that liked the idea of just opening the borders were taken out in the first round.  Some of those didn’t even last until the first debate.

What I didn’t understand at the time was the way the media backed Trump.  Anyone who has a memory knows this to be true.  Despite this, Senator Cruz almost overtook Trump.
Then, after the primary was settled, the media turned against Candidate Trump.  One day, he was their darling.  The next day they spoke of him as if he were a monster.
Then it became apparent to me what the media was doing.  They were using the trick I suggested to my brother and helped the worst candidate in order to help Hillary win.  What they didn’t know was that their decision had unintended consequences.  Not only did Candidate Trump beat her soundly, but he has turned out to be a very good president.

Certainly, as a Christian, I don’t like his language, especially in front of small kids.  Nonetheless, he is keeping his promises far better than I expected.  If we had a few more good Republican senators, I am sure he would keep his promises far better.  Just maybe, I would not be spending a thousand dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.
More than this, he has become the Dems worst nightmare, a success.  As he has decreased regulations and lowered taxes, the economy has taken off, the unemployment has dropped and the Dems are beside themselves.  There has been a drop in those streaming across our border and there are even some rinos angered.  Their source of low wage employees is drying up.

Now I realize the Dems had one thing in common with me, their underestimate of President Trump.  Now they will have unintended consequences.  If we have 4% growth (likely more) the Dems will realize a significant drop in their number of fans, especially among those living in the rust belt.  This will be true in spite of how strongly the press beats up on President Trump and how much they try to help the Dems.  It will be obvious to one and all that the Dems were wrong all the time.

One thing I still don’t understand.  Why do the African Americans like the Dems?  They haven’t done anything for them.  Indeed, many of the things they have done have hurt them.  They worst thing they have done is to insist on backing an organization that had its foundation in trying to eradicate the Black race.  Margaret Sanger founded Family Planning for that express purpose.  I suspect, though they won’t admit to it, it is likely still one of their purposes.  Please don’t take my word for it.  Look it up.

Now, the Dems want to stand in the way of building a wall.  I can’t understand that.  I lock my door.  It helps keep the bad guys out.  A wall helps keep the bad guys out.  It helps keep the drugs out.  This is true no matter who the next president is.  On the other hand, if all we have is a virtual wall, that can go away as a matter of policy.  It went away while President Obama was in office and, to a lesser degree while President Bush was in office.
It is important to realize that building the wall even helps the illegal immigrants.  Many die sneaking into our country.  Many young women are raped.  Countless numbers of them end up working in sweatshops or brothels.  Of course, as payment for their passage, many are forced to carry drugs.  That’s not good for them or us.
I’m tired of hearing about comprehensive immigration.  We were promised a wall twice.  They were empty promises.  The way I figure it, they owe us the wall, not promises.  The way I figure it, the time for talk is over.  It is time to start building.

One more small note:  If we don’t have a good strong defense, eventually, we will not have a good economy.  For sure, we won’t even have a country.  We will be overrun by any one of a dozen of other countries.  We might not be an aggressive country, but others are.  The instant they realize we are weak, they will take advantage of it.
