And Tomorrow?

This post will cover a lot of ground, intentional. This post will leave gaps and holes, again intentional. This is just the first of many parts, the gaps and holes will at some point be filled in. Some will seem repetitive, some things are worth repeating. Each will be lengthy, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.

Each generation has but one wish, and that is the hope of leaving for their descendants a better place than they inherited from their ancestors. The only way to insure this is to have good and proper(truthful) record of the history of the people and their country. Half-truths are no substitute for the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

As it relates to history there are three types of history.
1 Past History. The history of yesterday and the days past.
2 Present history. The history of today though it is still being written and will not be finished until tomorrow.
3 Future history. The history of tomorrow and days yet to come.

In the annals of mankind there is but one book written that covers all three areas of history, and that is the Holy Bible. The Word, God’s Word. From Genesis through Revelations.

So, what about tomorrow? Do we want tomorrow to just another today? Do you want to continue living the same day over and over? Just like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day? We don’t have to live in the past nor should we, and frankly I doubt that today’s population could endure the hardships of our ancestors, nor do we have to. Nor can we just live for today, the here and now. This would be existing and not living. Tomorrow is the key. Tomorrow should and will be better than today if only we let it.

What kind of tomorrow will we have if we allow some in society to erase or demand that others erase today and yesterday from history? How far are they willing to go in their efforts? What is their ultimate goal? These are questions that need to be asked.

Demands to remove “offensive” Confederate symbols from the Flags of the Confederacy to Monuments to the Confederacy are just the beginning. Much like the demands from the “alt-lifestyle” community.

That mess started with just a demand to visit “loved ones” in the hospital, so the idea of a Civil-Union was forced on the rest of society. This whole issue could have been avoided by the use of a simple power of attorney. But no, their ultimate goal was a legal marriage, and the courts have provided for a small segment of our population what the rest of the population has been denied, a Constitutional Right to Marry. There still is no Supreme Court ruling to allow the marriage of a Man and a Woman, nothing making different sex marriage a Constitutional Right. A friend of mine(Male)just recently married his long-time sweetheart(Female)and there was something unusual on the marriage license, instead of having a space for the husband and the wife, it had a space for the spouse and the spouse. Good Grief. I wonder what sex if any will be listed on birth certificates now and in the future. Canada already has three sexes to choose from on their passports.

Now back to all things Confederate being “offensive”. In recent post I said that people would begin changing their names because they may be offensive to some person at some time. Well it is now it has gone straight to the point of a person being punished because of his name, because it might offend someone. The sportscaster was not allowed to broadcast or announce on a college football game because his name is Robert Lee. This has got to be a first. I wonder, could he have performed his normal duties if his name was Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, Karl Marx or Friedrich Engels? Just asking. I kind of suspect that he would have, and most likely with cheers from the left. After all Earth Day is celebrated on Lenin’s birthday and Castro, Chavez, Guevara, Marx, Engels, Mao and Lenin are all heroes to the left.

So where is all of this heading? As stated above the attack on all things Confederate is just a starting point, a sort of “jumping off point”. There is an ultimate goal, there has to be. Even if all things Confederate could be “erased” from sight, the memory of the Confederacy would still exist. The Constitution of the Confederate States of America still exists as the “law of the land’ of the Confederacy, it was never repealed.

If the intent to destroy all things Confederate is tied to a sort of atoning for slavery then only the middle is under attack. The Confederacy in the opinion of some was founded on the premise of continuing that “Peculiar Institution”. This is not the opinion of many others including myself. One could I suppose claim that the first seven sates seceded over slavery. But how could one suppose the same of the next four states to secede? Going back to the original seven seceding states South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. They each and all seceded because they had a right to do so in the same spirit that the original 13 colonies when they seceded from Great Britain. To chart their own destinies and institute a government that best suited them, they formed the Confederate States of America, drafted a Constitution and set up a provisional government.

Now let’s go to the four states who later seceded and what caused their secession. Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas all voted to remain in the Union as the other seven voted to depart from the union. So ask yourself why they voted to stay and then voted again to exit and why. The four voted to leave the union after and only after President Lincoln attempted to raise an army with each of the remaining union states contributing a requisite number of men to accomplish the task at hand. So just what was the task at hand? The task at hand was to force the original seven seceded states back into the union and comply with federal laws, laws they considered ruinous. The four seceded rather than take up arms to force their fellow countrymen back into the union. The point here is that the federal government would use force against fellow Americans not because they refused to free slaves but because they dared to “buck” the system, and secede. There was no law to free the people held in slavery.

There were other states actively considering seceding. It would appear to some states that the federal government was becoming what the Colonials have fought just 85 years earlier.

Lincoln waged war against Americans to preserve the Union not to end slavery. It was not the Colonials that waged war with Britain, the King chose war. It was not the Confederacy that waged war against the Union, Lincoln chose war. A little note, Lincoln thought so highly of Lee that he offered him the job of commanding the federal forces against the Confederacy. Lee refused, resigned from the federal army and returned to Virginia to defend his home state.

Had the seven not seceded they in all likely hood would have retained slavery and the slaves would have remained in bondage. In fact slavery would have continued in all states North and South that were yet to abolish slavery, of their own volition. As stated above their was no federal law outlawing slavery. Had there been no what some people call the Civil War, we call it the War for Southern Independence there would have been no Emancipation Proclamation. Which by the way freed absolutely no slaves, it was merely a political maneuver, a slick one at that.

The Confederacy is just viewed as the “low-hanging fruit”, easy to pick. For many reasons, number one being the slavery issue. The Confederacy is viewed as a group of slave states therefore anyone who defends the Confederacy, it’s Flags and Monuments will be labeled as racists and bigots. This backed up by “cherry picking” speeches and papers from selected individuals concerning slavery and causes for secession. Half-Truths. The whole truth is out there for you to find, if you care about the truth. But let me ask you this. Would you fight a long war, 4 long years just to keep a race in bondage, knowing that keeping them in bondage lowers your chances to gain employment? Think about it. Would you fight a war to protect yourself and your country? Would fight a war, no matter how long if this country was invaded by a foreign nation? Would you harbor ill-feelings if your country was conquered and then occupied for years if not centuries.

So if all of this being “offended” stems from the Confederacy and slavery, why not address the real issue. The buying and selling of humans. The lesser of two evils, many choices made are based on just that, the lesser of two evils. We can all agree that slavery, human bondage, is an evil, a great evil. But as with anything else it can be divided into categories. Buying and selling slaves, which is the lesser of the two? Buying? Selling? One can not buy what is not for sale. One can only buy what is for sale. One can not sale that which another will not or can not buy. No market no sale. Think about it. If the hating of and removal of all things Confederate is based on the premise of slavery, then one must start with the slave traders. Did the plantation owners demand slaves to work their plantations? Did someone create a market by providing slave labor. But then again this would cause people to think for themselves. Being indoctrinated is not conducive to thinking, unless you count groupthink.

As stated above the hatred of a subsequent removal of all things Confederate is just a “stepping-stone” for the liberal socialist progressive left, going after the “low-hanging fruit”. What is going on now is just the beginning. The end goal is not to erase the Confederacy, it is to erase America itself, erase America from existence, sending her down the proverbial “memory hole”. To go after the Constitution, or what is left of it, for in the Constitution is the phrase “three fifths of all other persons”. Destroy the Constitution, destroy America.

The ultimate goal, I believe is a second period of reconstruction, a reconstruction of America. Erase the old and construct the new, the New America with a new Constitution and a new form of government. This time there will be no Bill of Rights, you will have no Rights, only Duties, Responsibilities and Obligations. This has got to come to a halt, and I pray that it does before it becomes too late.

Maybe this from Germany will help. When they can for the(insert what is appropriate)I said nothing, because I was not a(again inset what is appropriate). Keep the process going listing all that has no concern for you because you are not a whatever. You will at some point during the process come to a point where you are affected, but remember that when each group is attacked the numbers of those can or could resist constantly dwindle. When they came for me there was no one left to speak out. There is another aspect to consider in this application. Call it payback, revenge or whatever term you choose to use. It would be easy to say; You refused to stand up or speak out for me or on my behalf, why on God’s green earth should I assist you now? Think about that. Segregate. Isolate. Destroy.

But where does it stop? Will it stop when all of the Monuments and other symbols of the Confederacy are destroyed and erased from memory? No, my friend it will not stop there. Will it stop when all books and papers favorable to the Confederacy are collected and burned? No, my friend it will not stop there either. It will not stop until all that represents America is destroyed, removed from sight and then burned.

Anti-FA has some allies in this destruction of America, some willingly and others unwittingly. A word of caution. The ones marching under the banner of Anti-Fascist America are the Fascists, those going with the flow, so to speak, are just tools, tools to be used and then disposed of. They will accept no point of view but their own. They resort to violence to accomplish their immediate goals. Their immediate goals are to work towards their ultimate goal, one step at a time. They should probably use their correct name, Jacobins, the “ends justify the means” crowd. There will come a time towards the end where Anti-FA will have no choice but to implement their own Operation Mockingbird. You have heard of Operation Mockingbird, haven’t you? You may know it better by the common name, The Night of the Long Knives. Those who accompany Anti-FA might just want to brush up on history, before that too is erased.

Who or What is next?

Now we have this from the Liberal Left Socialist Progressives(LLSP). It now appears that there are offensive monuments in the Halls of Congress. We know this because some “esteemed and enlightened” politicians(clowns)have said so. These clowns have wandered these same halls for years, however it would seem that they have just now at this very minute seen them, though most of these statues have stood there silently for years bothering no one. These same “esteemed and enlighten” clowns want to introduce legislation to have them removed from Capitol Hill.

So you have to ask yourself why must or did they announce to the world that these offensive things exist, offensive to them but only recently. The answer to that is simple, and here is why. American politics revolves around opinion polls, yes it is the pollsters and those who hire them that set and control the political agenda. Likewise the American foreign policy has for years been shaped by “World Opinion”. They are just checking to see which way the wind blows.

There is a reason why the legislation to remove the “offensive” statues from the Statutory was announced. If the legislation stalls in committee, the LLSP esteemed and enlightened clowns will go to their allies in the media and decry the obstructionists to this legislation as racists, neo-Nazis, or what ever term will give them the most “traction”. The same will happen if the Congress does not pass the legislation. Any opposition to the legislation will be met with the same vicious attacks, the legislation will most likely pass with little or no opposition. Worse will happen if the legislation becomes a bill and is sent to President Trump and he refuses to sign the bill into law. If the bill passes with little or no opposition and the president vetoes the bill his veto will be overridden. Damned if you do Damned if you dont. The LLSP will then claim that our Constitution works, the same Constitution they have worked so hard to destroy and so despise when it stands in their way.

There was also a reason the announcement of the existence of these statues was announced. The vast majority of Americans have never visited Washington D.C. Consequently the existence of these statues was until unknown. Those who knew of their existence were not offended. No one demanded their removal, until these clown sprang into action. With this announcement there has been an invitation to visit the Capitol, not to see the beauty but to look for things that offend.

Stacking the Deck. This is exactly what the LLSP have done with these announcements, they announced the presence of these statues, they also announced their intention to introduce legislation to have them removed. These esteemed and enlightened clowns know that the legislative process in Congress is slow to the point of being excruciatingly slow, they have been a part of the process for years and in some cases decades. They intend to speed up the process, but only in this instance. By making these announcements these esteemed and enlightened clowns have effectively and intentionally invited protests, more protests to D.C. Even without legislation the protests and the ensuing violence will cause outcry. You will get what you want. You intend to make it swift.

Playing both ends against the middle, a favorite tactic of the LLSP. They know by these announcements there will be protesters coming to D.C. There will be those who are opposed to the removal/destruction or the statues for whatever position they hold. There will be those for the removal/destruction of the statues again for whatever position they hold. These will be the only protestors, they come in peace to voice their opinions under the First Amendment, Free Speech. They want to make speeches and carry their signs and posters, Protesters not Rioters. These clowns know full well that the extremes will show up, left and right, they are counting on them. They are also counting on violence, without violence they will not have a victim. They will undoubtedly infiltrate the protesters, whether paid or just to cause trouble. The extremes never come in peace, they bring death and destruction, they provide what you need. The LLSP will blame only the ones who protest the removal.

The Ends Justify the Means. The LLSP and their allies in the media have an agenda to fulfil and will see it through not matter what the cost. They do not and never have considered the cost of their schemes. Their agenda has got to be to destroy America. To destroy America they must finish off the South. Four years of war did not get it done, reconstruction still did not get it done. The South and the Southern culture still exists, and it and has been a thorn in the side of the LLSP, the media and the elitists.

There was country song years back that had the lyrics; You cant stomp us out and you cant make us run. The LLSP know full well that one can only be pushed so far. Maybe a poem will help.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good
When the Saxon began to hate

They were not easily moved
They were icy–willing to wait
Till every count should be proved
Ere the Saxon began to hate

Their voices were even and low
Their eyes were level and straight
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate

It was not preached to the crowd
It was not taught by the state
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate

It was not suddently bred
It will not swiftly abate
Through the chilled years ahead
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate

All of this leaves one to wonder just what it is that the LLSP wants. Are they pushing for a Civil War? A War pitting political factions against one another? A War pitting the regions of America against one another? Or are they pushing for Martial Law? What you need now is the same as you have always needed, you need a triggering event. The triggering event you so desperately need and seek has yet to appear. You now seek to cause one, using your allies in the media and violent factions. Be careful what you wish for.

There is perhaps one aspect to all of this hatred of all things Southern and Confederate, not to mention the jealousy of the South, that the LSSP and their allies may have overlooked. The monster you create today will come for you tomorrow. If you manage to finish us off by whatever you have in mind there will be no one to save you from the monster you created. You believe you have insulated yourselves, news for you there will never be enough insulation. Your creation(monster)will destroy you, unless you destroy it. How will you destroy them?

What was right in 1776 was right in 1861 and is right today.

You really want to know why?

I read a post that seemed to ask the question why now? Why all the sudden are the Confederate Monuments so offensive? They seemed to have a place just a few short years ago and offended no one down in these parts. Now it seems that all things Confederate are the most offensive objects on the planet. Street names have become offensive. County names have become offensive. Names of Military Bases have become offensive. Anything named or called Davis, Lee, Jackson, Stewart, Hood, Bragg, Hill, Johnston, Hampton, Gordon, Longstreet, Smith, Morgan, Gist, Waite, Beauregard, Forrest, Early, Ewell, Stuart, Cleburne, Anderson, Mosby or perhaps one of my personal favorites Bryan. There are many, many more, not just the President and the Generals, there are even things named after Confederate Privates, Sergeants, Lieutenants Captains, Majors and Colonels. Anything memorializing these men has to be removed or renamed, so as not to offend. Honoring these men and their cause has become akin to a sin. Hell, it probably wont be long before people start changing their last name or even their whole names because their name might offend someone.

At this moment Social Justice Warriors(SJW)are fanning out all across the South, Dixie, looking for anything that “smacks” of the Confederacy and claiming it to be offensive. People see these things each and everyday are not the least bit offended by them. They have no idea that they should be or have been offended, at least not until some carpetbagger tells them they should be offended. I was quite surprised when there was a song playing on my radio and a young man who heard it did not know what the song was, the song was Dixie’s Land or just Dixie as we call it. He would not have known it was Dixie had I not told him. You cant be offended by what you dont know. Some families have lived on the same street for years, there are even instances where their off-spring bought a home on the same street, and only just recently were offended. If they were offended by the name why the hell did they buy a home on that “awful” street with that “offensive” name?

So when did this new hatred of the Confederacy, the South, Dixie start? In all actuality it never stopped, it has always existed and always will. It could be hatred but it could also be jealousy.

Four years of war did not destroy the South, the South is still recovering. The re-construction years did more damage to the South than the war, the South is still recovering from that as well. The going has been long and slow. So what are we again entering re-construction? A new re-construction period(more on this later).

There was something from years back that went; Why do you boys still fight a war you lost back in 1865? The reply was; Why do you people keep shooting at us.

Now let us go to the events in Virginia this past week-end. You had a debate concerning the removal of a statue from a park. The park for years was known as Lee park, it is now known as Emancipation Park. You changed the name of the Park, but left the statue of General Lee where it stood. Now you want to remove the statue. You could have done both in the dark of night.

Let us go back in time. A time when the park was known as Lee park. Children from all walks of life played in that park, their parents took them there. Students from the local university went that Park, as did many tourists. Children played and students studied in that park, some in the shadow of the statue of Gen. Lee. Neither the name of the Park or the statue of Gen. Lee offended the first soul. I would bet that many a picture was taken in the presence of Gen. Lee, there may have even been proposals of marriage made in the presence of the General.

So what was it that caused the violence in Charlottesville? Everybody is looking to blame somebody, anybody or anything. There is certainly enough blame to go around. First up is the local government. You knew full well what was going to happen when you announced to the world that you were considering the removal of the statue of General Lee. You knew what would be descending on your town. First you would have people arriving to protest the removal of the statue. Second you knew there would be counter-protesters. Then you would have those that were spoiling for a fight, whether they be extreme right or extreme left(alt-right alt-left). You needed the extremes to show up. These events have a tendency of bring out the best in people and the worst in people. I do not understand the slow response from the VSP, nor do I judge them.

There were four casualties, the poor unfortunate girl who was run down, two Troopers that died in a helicopter crash and your city. My thought and prayers are with the families of the girl and the two troopers. Your city will recover her family and the families of the two troopers have suffered a loss that cant be recovered.

Now to you politicians. You needed the violence, you however did not expect fatalities. You will now use the death of the girl for sure and possibly the troopers to your advantage. Now you have to take down the statue, if for no other reason than to honor her and possibly them. You really are pathetic. You got what you wanted and again you did not care about the cost. You needed the drama, you counted on it and by golly you got it and your friends from the media were right there.

Lee(Emancipation)Park is not the only Park in your fair city. Anyone that was offended by the statue could have simply gone to a different Park.

Unfortunately these kinds of things will keep happening. Unfortunate for this Republic. Unfortunate for the South. Truly unfortunate for the victims. They will keep occurring as long as the politicians can “arrange” for extremes(right and left)to meet. The only winner in this equation is you and your agenda, that is all you care about.

When dont matter, Why matters. The New Reconstruction. They war years did not kill the South, though the damage and loss of life was great. The first Reconstruction did not kill the South, though the damage was great, politically and economically. The Culture of the South survived both, that is what the left is so pissed over. Now you seek to destroy Southern Culture with the Second Re-construction. You really do not understand Southern Culture. We seek to maintain and preserve our culture. We are not into multiculturalism.

Multiculturalism will lead to the destruction of this Republic. Historically multiculturalism has been the root cause of failure of the great republics. As long as the Southern culture stands and remains intact so will this Republic. There is no other section of this Republic that has retained its culture.

I could venture of into the realm of conspiracy theories, but I will not. I will however us a term that most everybody has heard, the New World Order. You can not have a New World Order until you dismantle(destroy)the Old World Order. Destruction and Reconstruction and if needed a Second Reconstruction. My question is what kind of New World do you envision?

That what was right in 1776 was right in 1861 and is still right today.

God Bless Dixie.

Well excuse me

The republican leadership(if it can be called that with a straight face)in the Senate is about as useless as “milk dispensers” on a boar hog. The only thing they seem to be able to do is make excuses. Now it appears that President Trump has set his expectations to high. He actually expected to get things done. The justification for that remark, “He’s not from the political world and does not know how things work around D.C.”. Well I am not from around D.C. either but I am from around here, and around here a mans word is his bond. The politicians seem to have forgotten that little tidbit. You did make campaign promises, did you not. One of which was to repeal Obamacare, you said you would repeal Obamacare, you never said that we should not expect too much. You certainly never said that we should not expect you to repeal Obamacare.

It becomes more apparent by the day that a statement made in the past is true, “There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties”. The republicans are little more than Whigs, radical red republicans, the democrats are little more than socialists, radical red socialists. Both are for big government, a big centralized powerful government.

From this moment forward I will expect you to do nothing, my expectations of you and from you will be low, to the point of being non-existent. That way I will never be disappointed in you. If by some miracle you do get something done I will get more than I expected. Thanks for finally coming clean with us.

I am pretty much done with you republicans, at least on the national level. I will no longer put or help to put a pretend friend at my side. You Whigs are no friend to America or to me(socialists never are), though you pretend to be. You have proven that a pretend friend will turn on a dime. You may still wind up at my side but I will keep a wary eye one you. We still do pretty well with republicans(not as many pretend friends, Whigs)at the state level here in Florida, well but not great.

While I am here I might as well clear this up for the politicians and the talking heads. There is a special election coming up in the state of Alabama to fill a vacant senate seat. I have heard of it being referred to as Jeff Sessions seat. I would like to point this out, the Senate seat belongs to the state of Alabama, it does not and did not belong to Jeff Sessions. He was just the most recent occupant of that seat. For that matter there is no man or political party that can lay claim to any seat in Congress. The two Senate seats belong to the State, the seats in the House of Representatives belong to that District in that State. Choose wisely Alabama.

When and if the Convention of States convenes there are two things I would like to come from it. 1 The States Rights Initiative, including Nullification and if necessary Secession. 2 Repealing the 17th Amendment.

As long as I mentioned Nullification and Secession I might as well mention this. There is currently a petition going around here in Florida, a petition for the Secession of Florida from the federal union. A petition to place on the ballot for the citizens of Florida to decide to Seceded or not. An uphill struggle for sure but a worthy struggle. I must admit the Republic of Florida sounds pretty good. The movement in Florida is for real and the petition is for real.

On a side note as mentioned above this movement in Florida is real, unlike those who want out because they did not get the President they wanted(California). California and the rest have no chance unless Dixie goes first.

It is not just in Florida but all across the South. There are those of us who see the South as a defeated and occupied land. The Confederate States of America still exists. The Southern people and culture still exist.

Taking Turns

It would appear that the politicians both democrats and republicans are taking and have been taking turns stabbing the middle-class in the back. Both political parties are filled to over-flowing with big-government politicians, Whigs and Socialists. On one hand we have the democrats(Socialists)taking this Republic down the path to socialism, on the other we have the republicans(Whigs)taking us down the same path. If they get their way this republic will be inhabited by the same classes as Venezuela, the poor and the wealthy. The middle class will be eliminated here just the same as there. Of the two the democrats seem to be in the biggest hurry, the republicans seem to be a bit more patient.

There is another thing about the democrats, they are willing to risk losing elections on the way to Socialism. The democrats knew full-well that Obamacare would at some point implode, fail if you will. Still they did not care and moved ahead full-speed. They also knew that by passing Obamacare they would lose elections, the voters would take out their anger at the polls. Losing elections did not bother them. They lost control of the House shortly after passing Obamacare, retaining the Senate and the Presidency. Later they lost control of the Senate but retained the Presidency. For democrats losing was winning.

Now the republicans control the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Six months in and Obamacare is still with us. The republicans can not get rid of Obamacare, nor do they really want to. The democrats are coming to the rescue, they seek a bi-partisan effort to fix Obamacare. They knew it would fail. They sought no republican input is “crafting” that piece of legislation, yet they are willing to help the republicans to “fix” Obamacare. The thing about republicans is that they are not willing to lose elections on their march towards Socialism.

There is no way that we can ever go back to the way it was, or the way it is supposed to be. Big government politicians will see to that. Healthcare is just another thing under federal government control, one of many. Government has control and will never give that up. Power and control.

What will the republicans run on next year? Can or will they run on their record? Will they say they just needed more time? Maybe they will say the time to repeal Obamacare was lost, it has been with us to long? Will they say that too much time was lost investigating “Russian collusion”? The republicans have total control at this time, they could repeal Obamacare. If only they had the Nerve, had a Brain and had a Heart. They would never do that they might lose the next election.

What will the democrats run on next year? Will they run on saving Obamacare?

The democrats stabbed us in the back by passing Obamacare.

The republicans stabbed us in the back by failing once again to full-fill campaign promises. Which goes to prove that a politician will say anything to get elected or re-elected.

The democrats will in all likelihood use their time-tested tactics, the republicans will aid them(wittingly or unwittingly). The republicans will fail to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare will fail(implode), after all it was designed to do just that. The democrats will say that they were voted out before they could perfect Obamacare, what they had accomplished was only a first step. A first step that did not go far enough. The republicans had years to fix Obamacare, they could have helped us fix the flaws. The republicans knew the flaws, they repeated/regurgitated them often enough. The republicans refused to help fix it and now it has failed. The republicans did nothing, it failed and its failure is their fault. Now it is too late to fix it, we must take the next step. The next logical step in the minds of big government politicians is single payer health care. They will find a way to blame Obamacare on the republicans. They will even blame single payer on the republicans, had the republicans acted in time we would not be at this point. Even though single payer was their goal all along. The republicans in Congress will face and feel the wrath of the voters, the republicans will find themselves in the political wilderness.

There is another thing about socialism, there is only one political party. The republicans fear that the democrats will be in control when the change occurs. The republicans who stand up against the democrats of today will have no political future tomorrow. The republicans who side with the democrats today may have a political future tomorrow.

Well just imagine that

The latest republican plan to repeal or repeal/replace Obamacare has failed, at least that is the breaking news. The true story should read; Everything is proceeding according to plan, we never really had any intention of repealing or repealing/replacing Obamacare anyway.

For over 7 long years the republicans have been running for election/re-election on repealing Obamacare. First they said give us the House and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the House and we got nothing. Next they said give us the Senate and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the Senate and again we got nothing. Next they said give us the White House and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the White House and yet again we get nothing.

Well, I just wonder what will be the excuse they will offer for not getting it done now. The republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House. Is there anything else they need? Besides a spine. I would have said that they need to grow a pair, but there are some female politicians. So a spine covers that best, seeing as both sexes have one. Although the lack of a spine can be beneficial to politicians, especially to politicians, a spine makes it hard to slither around, especially if one tries to slither under a door.

Since Obamacare became Law the republicans have been complaining about how it was bad for Americans and thus bad for America. Since the republicans can not/will not repeal Obamacare reveals much about the republicans. It reveals much about the politicians(D,R and I)priorities. Their priorities are:
1. Themselves. Getting re-elected.
2. Their political party. Keeping their party in control or putting their party in control.
3. Themselves. Increasing their personal wealth.
4. Their big money donors, the lobbyists, the special interest groups.

You will notice that the list of priorities does not list Americans or America. That is because in my opinion, Congress does not give a flip about America and therefore can not/will not give a flip about average Americans. Let’s face it average Americans ain’t a special interest group.

The big government Whigs are back, and back with a vengeance. They have aligned themselves so closely with the democrats it is next to impossible to tell the difference.

Obamacare, since it became law has had zero effect, on me personally. I have group health insurance offered through my employer. I had group health insurance before Obamacare came along, my premiums were low then and are now and my co-pays remain the same now as then. Most people I know also fall into this category.

So now you must be asking yourselves why I rant about Obamacare so much and so often. Well my friends, you will notice that I said most people I know fall into the same category as me. I did not say that everybody I know falls into the same category as me. There are many that have had to return to work after retirement simply because they could not afford to by a private health insurance policy, the premiums and co-pays are just to high. It is good to see familiar faces, but it would have been under better circumstances if they returned because they wanted to rather than coming back because they had to. There are still others that are seriously considering giving up their own business(closing their doors)and going to work for larger companies because of the price of obtaining health insurance. Still others have already closed up shop. That is a crying shame, driven out of business not by shoddy workmanship, but driven out by government and health insurance.

Perhaps these are two intended consequences of Obamacare.
First. Keeping or actually forcing people to stay in the work force longer and longer, past the time they wanted to retire. Those that have group health insurance leave the group if they leave the job, forcing them to buy health insurance. Making health insurance so expensive people simply can not leave the work force because they can not afford the premiums and co-pays.
Second. Eliminating competition. The small business man/woman can not afford to comply with the law. He/she closes shop and goes to work for a bigger company or corporation. The politicians are in the pockets of big banking, big business and the unions. Using laws to eliminate competition.

Obamacare never was about making healthcare affordable, it was about forcing people to buy insurance. Insurance they neither wanted or needed. Insurance they can not afford. If the insurance was affordable there would be no need to subsidize health insurance for some. As for the cost of health insurance, the politicians do not care what it costs the average American. Let’s face it the government does not care what anything costs, what ever the cost it is the American tax-payers who pay. As for subsidizing health insurance for some, this is how that works. One pays his/her premiums for the policy, the government then takes taxes out of his/paycheck(income taxes)and then uses that tax money to pay a portion of another persons health insurance policy. Paying twice.

There is another reason why I despise Obamacare so much. Government intrusion and interference. Some how the government thinks that its place and has the right to tell a person they must by healthcare insurance or pay some sot of penalty. Not only that they must buy the insurance policy but what it must cover. As stated above Obamacare has had no direct effect on me there is another reason I speak out against Obamacare. Obamacare has had a direct negative effect on some near and dear to me.

The republicans will most likely fail to do anything about Obamacare. They at some point will act of desperation to pass something good or bad. The other option is that they will seek help from their mirror image, the democrats to come up with a plan. No matter which way this goes the government has gotten its big fat nose in an area they had no business meddling in. They have gotten control of another part of American lives and they will not give that back. Obamacare or something like it will be with us for a good long time, until the next scheme comes along. Obamacare was a welfare scheme, two schemes in one. An entitlement program for some and corporate welfare for the insurance companies. This republic is on the path towards single payer insurance, government insurance. That will be a truly sad day for this Republic and its citizens.

Everything is as planned and moving right along on schedule. There is nothing and no reason to delay the August recess now.

This government intrusion and many like it only go to prove that men Like Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson were right in 1786 and 1787. It also proves the South was right in 1861.

God Bless Dixie. DEO VINDICE

Oh Goody, I got another one

Yep, got yet another RNC survey in the mail entitled; Trump Agenda Survey along with a three page accompanying letter. This one too is from the RNC Chairwoman. Three times on page three of the letter the RNC is begging for money, the dollar amounts go from $25 up to $1,000 or what ever I can spare within the next 7 business days. These people are really testing the limits of my good manners. The letter once again proves that the RNC has no vision. They picked the wrong one to offer them advice as I am right next to telling them exactly what they can do to themselves.

Let’s go through this thought-provoking survey. First I might note that there is a notice at the top of the survey which reads: NOTICE: This DOCUMENT IS REGISTERED to the individual named below and must be accounted for during tabulation. If you choose not to represent your District in this official Trump Agenda Survey, sign and return this Document using the pre-addressed envelope provided.

A little further down the front page is another statement all capital letters in red: OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN PARTY DOCUMENT- DO NOT DESTROY

Then instructions as how to mark the block that corresponds with the answer, return in 7 business days. A total of 12 questions and the and possible answers. Question 1 has only yes or no for the possible responses. Question 2 has ten items to be marked from 1 through 10 with 1 being the most important. Questions 3 through 11 have Yes, No and No Opinion for possible responses, there is however no room to explain the answer selected.

For instance question #3. Are you in favor of major federal investment in rebuilding the country’s infrastructure of roads, highways bridges, and airports? The options are Yes, No and No Opinion. If I were to answer this question my answer would be, No. My answer would indicate to some that I do not care about the sorry state of the infrastructure. While I do care, it is not right for us here in Florida to pay for improvements in say, New York, nor would it be right for another state to pay for improvements here in Florida. When ever they say federal investment they mean money that came from the States. You can bet that the states with the fewest Electoral College votes would come dead last if the federal government gets involved in financing infrastructure improvements.

Question #9 is worded all wrong. Do you believe that Democrats in Congress have any intention of working in good faith with President Trump and Republicans to address the pressing issues facing our nation? There is really no a way to answer that question as worded.
If the question was worded; Do you believe that Democrats and Republicans in Congress have any intention of working in good faith with President Trump to address the pressing issues facing our Republic? Boy, I could answer that question. The answer would be not only NO but Hell NO! No I couldn’t say that Hell No is not an option. I guess NO would have to do. I would need lots of room to say why, even though there is really no explanation needed.

Question #11 is hilarious. Do you believe that the so-called “Mainstream Media” will give President Trump fair, unbiased coverage of his policy proposals and leadership? Are you kidding me, you really felt you had to ask this question?

Then of course there is question #12. The one that begs for money. The possible answers are:
Yes! You can count on me with a pledge to support the RNC with a contribution from $25 all the way up to Other.
No, I cannot make a commitment today, but I support our President and his Agenda. I am returning my survey document with a contribution of $15 to cover processing.
No, I do not support President Trump and Republicans in Congress.

Well Madam, you will not be getting this survey back, nor will you be getting one red cent. The exact same as last time.
