In order to have a generally lawful and orderly society, a majority of the citizens of such society must have a certain degree of respect for the laws that govern it. It’s pretty easy to see we have started losing that respect over the last few decades. Let’s take a stab at why this is.

First, in order for most people to have any respect for the law, they must perceive it as generally fair. If the politicians who make it, and the officers who enforce it, are not held accountable and go unpunished for flagrant violations, of course the majority see it is not fair. Such cases are daily reminders that the law is different for the wealthy and powerful, and everybody else.

Next, in order for the system to be fair, it must be fairly easy to understand. If the state is to have no mercy upon the people, and take the stand that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” then how can it be fair to have uncountable thousands upon thousands of laws? Do a little online research. As far as I can tell, no one will even TRY to count the number of US Federal laws. This is unacceptable by any reasonable person who believes in a free and fair society.
If it takes around 7 YEARS of college education to get a license to practice law in this country (and even then you specialize in just a small portion of “law”), how can the government expect all of us simple folk to even know what all the laws are? Much less be able to live in accordance with them all? Don’t worry, the man will surely let you know if they decide you’ve broken it.

We elect and pay over 500 people to go to DC and legislate. And legislate they do. Besides all of the laws our actual legislators vote into being, the beast of a government we have has begun allowing all of it’s separate departments to produce regulations, and enforce those regulations with the power of law. Thousands and thousands of “laws” that were never voted on by your representatives, just written into being by the IRS, Department of Energy, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Labor, Department of Transportation, on and on it goes.

None of the above even begins to get into the same exact scenario going on at the state and local levels. Two hundred years of this and the situation is now nearly unbearable.

We MUST reign in our overlords. We must DEMAND a smaller government that actually restrains itself to only exercising  the powers granted to it by our Constitution.

In a bit of positive news, several celebrities have announced their plans to leave the country if Trump gets elected.
Let’s start with the queen of hypocrites, Rosie O’Donnell. She doesn’t believe anyone should have guns. Well, anyone except police and military, oh, and the armed guards that work for her and escort her and her kids around. Sure gonna miss her, yeah.
Al Sharpton recently joined the list. If I was Trump and I did make it to the White House, I’d make Al a deal. Go, and if and when you decide you want to come back, make sure you bring that 4 or 5 million dollars in back taxes. Plus interest and penalties of course.
Everybody’s favorite funny political genius Jon Stewart has not only promised to leave the country but the planet. Wow, do us a favor, please!
Whoopi Goldberg? How would we get by without Whoopi? Her twit of a cohost on The View, Raven-Symonè, claims she isn’t even going to wait for the Presidential election. She says if a Republican gets NOMINATED she’s taking her gang to Canada. Nice!

Hell, liberal crybabies all over the country are threatening to leave in droves. Check out this recent poll of government employees that are threatening to quit: Trump cleans up DC. Hell just putting the man in the office is going to do us so much good before he even makes his first moves I can’t help but vote for the man now.

Politicians on both sides literally hate the fact he is doing so well. God forbid a candidate not chosen by the establishment give them a run for their money.  Considering the mess professional politicians have made of things so far, that’s the best endorsement they could give him.

Enlightened socialists LOVE to point out how stupid people are for believing in “a magic man in the sky”. Then they proceed to spread a religion about a government that is made of perfect beings who will distribute all the riches of the world evenly among a bunch of hardworking people who happily labor for the good of the whole. And if you could just rise above your selfishness, and give all the wealth and power on earth to this magic government, we could all live happily ever after in peace and love. Sound like a cult? That’s because it is!

They are just as convinced that they need to spread their gospel as any Christian missionary ever was. Just as certain that they know what’s good for you, better than you do . Just as sure that they can show you the light and save you from the hell that is capitalism, or freedom, or whatever other demonic ideology you are possessed with. They are beyond a doubt as self righteous as any Catholic priest, and they mean to exorcise your mind of those demons and save your political soul.

Just like the puritans, they want to stifle any speech that might offend. The blasphemy of “political incorrectness” gets you excommunicated from the flock. The heresy of not agreeing with their multiculturalist, socialist, ULTRA-TOLERANT utopia’s dogma, is simply, well, not tolerated.

The fact that the doctrine has failed 100% of the time can be ignored by the faithful. Religion doesn’t have to be logical. You see, they expect you to follow their religion for the exact same reason they heap ridicule upon you for yours. You just have to HAVE FAITH that this time it’s gonna be heaven on earth.

We have election campaigns, debates going on that are nothing short of one of the biggest spectacles in US political history. We have the POTUS churning out Executive Orders at a record pace. The Supreme Court recently started blocking said orders. The only victories second amendment supporters have had in recent times have all been 5-4 votes.

Obama has right at one year left in office. Just a few days ago the most influential conservative and constitutionalist Justice was found dead after an event that 40 or 50 people were at. A local judge pronounced him dead over the phone, and no autopsy has been performed. Now we can’t say there WAS foul play involved… but how can anyone say there wasn’t? A public funeral is to be held Saturday. I’m surprised they haven’t already cremated the body.

My, don’t we live in interesting times.


Freedom’s last stand.

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.” 
Ronald Reagan


If I hear one more person say some crap like “socialism is working great in (name country here) why not here?” I’m going to pull my hair out. Sure it WAS working OK in Sweden. Only because they were selling lots of oil. Now oil is way down. They’ve let millions of refugees in they have to feed, and are going into debt.


What could go wrong? Give it some time. Those European countries will go one after the other into the same hellhole following Cuba and Russia and every other socialist utopia we’ve seen. The ideology is bankrupt. Never worked, never will. Russia has one of the largest and most fertile land masses on earth. At the same time their people stood in lines to fight over a few loaves of bread, mountains upon mountains of corn and grains stood rotting in the USA because we could make so much of it, it was worthless. We started paying farmers not to grow stuff.

Under communism there is no incentive to produce anything. Why should I break my back to grow more corn? Why should I work hard on the factory line to produce more than the other guy? Guess what? They don’t! It’s human nature.

Why do we have to ruin our country? Why can’t our enlightened commies just go to whatever utopia they envy so much and let us TRY to get this place back to a free country while there might still be a chance?



“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
Winston Churchill

There are a couple of things we have to start demanding from our leaders. We can not continue to allow them to get away with what is happening in this country.

1. SECURE OUR BORDERS. This is common sense! This is NOT racism. It is a basic right that EVERY OTHER sovereign nation on this planet has, and exercises! For some reason the leftists in our country have convinced a lot of the population that if WE want to keep foreigners from jumping in, at will and in the millions upon millions, it has to be because we are Nazi/KKK who hate the brown people. Rest assured, Mexico DOES NOT allow unrestricted access to their country. Along it’s southern border is a wall. When they catch people trying to get over it they shoot them. This same government rants and raves against any measures even being considered by us at our border as hateful racism.
The government wants to convince you that we must give up our rights in order for them to “keep us safe”. While at the same time, they REFUSE to even stop anyone, including the Muslim terrorists they know are coming, from entering our country as they wish! How can anyone believe our safety is the aim of these policies? This is an insult to your intelligence. Obama has the “Border Patrol” gathering illegal aliens and bussing them into the interior.
One of the first things the federal government SHOULD do and has all authority to do is to keep our borders, well borders. The current state of affairs is unacceptable. It is illegal, and it’s treasonous.
2. KEEP OUR OBLIGATIONS TO THE VETERANS OF THIS COUNTRY. No American should stand for the way our government treats it’s Veterans. Veteran’s benefits should be NON NEGOTIABLE. No discussion of reducing any obligations to our Veterans should EVER be considered while we still send BILLIONS of dollars in foreign aid to countries that hate us, and BILLIONS of dollars are given each year to non productive members of our society (because THEY have a “right” to a decent standard of living). At the same time, people (some of whom have been horribly wounded in their service) who have served their country live in unacceptable conditions and go without even decent medical care THEY HAVE EARNED.
Of course SOMEHOW our beloved representatives who seem to have no problem voting THEMSELVES a generous salary from the public funds, frequent raises, not to mention positively luxurious retirement packages, don’t seem averse at all to bringing up Veteran’s benefits for the chopping block any time a chance comes up to save a buck for the budget.
It is INSANE that our system will take anyone who happens to get over the border and put them at the front of the line for food stamps, welfare payments, housing assistance, health care, now even the right to vote!!! For ILLEGAL ALIENS. But someone born here and who fought for their country gets the runaround and red tape trying to get help, and many of our real heroes rot in substandard hospital conditions because the VA system is NOT SUFFICIENTLY FUNDED. A free and just society MUST NOT ALLOW THIS ANY LONGER!

Remember, all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.

“Most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, is false.”   Bertrand Russell.

I want to start this on a positive note. There is so much negative stuff going on to complain about. Not to say we should never complain. Rest assured there will be plenty of it going on here. We all should being doing much more than that though.
Too many of us aren’t doing anything BUT complaining. That in itself is not solving anything. DO SOMETHING!

“What can I do?” Of course we all have different talents and different resources. Some of us are in a little better financial shape, others of us may not be but have more time available.
First, be registered to vote. Second, vote! All of us should know who our state representatives are. Find out who they are, find out their positions on the issues and send them a letter on yours. Remind them that you vote! Same for your Senators and Congressmen in DC. DO IT.

Say you’re retired, getting Social Security and barely making it. You still have time, and that’s as valuable as money any day. Take a kid fishing, take a kid shooting or hunting. Instead of complaining about how all the Republicans and Democrats are all the same dirty politicians, find a local third party candidate who you can support and work for his/her campaign. Or, put a suit on and run for a local office yourself!
Find a local grassroots organization you feel you can get behind and work with them to get the word out on the issues that are important to you.

You are working 50 or 60+ hours a week, no time to do such things? Join the NRA, donate to a political cause. Become politically aware enough to talk to your friends/family/coworkers when the opportunity arrives and maybe wake someone up.
Too many people I know are so intimidated by the political correctness choking free speech now. If we keep allowing the opposition to define what is acceptable for us to say and think, we will wake up one day soon when more and more common sense facts are suddenly “radical” “extremist” “hate speech” etc. So many of us are afraid to voice an opinion we are letting the other side do all the talking. This creates the illusion that the talking heads on TV are right. That conservative views are so rare and alien and backward that no modern, thinking, civilized person actually holds them.

The point is DO SOMETHING. You may not change the world single handedly, or maybe you will. Either way, you will feel better about it. We have to do what we can to save our country. We owe it to our descendants to at least make an honest effort to save what may be left of their freedom. If and when it comes to having to actually physically fight for it, at least we will have exhausted all other avenues, at least we will know we tried to resolve it peacefully.

Edited to add: How about umm, starting a blog? LOL. How did I not mention that? Get your position out there. Make a youtube vid. Whatever it takes. SILENCE IS CONSENT.
