'within that framework' to accomplish his goals" The problem is, I see the "framework" as being the swamp. To fix things, everything needed to be completely scrapped and started over again from scratch, using the United States Constitution as the blueprint.

I never said Trump was perfect, far from it. but I still think he was infinitely better than what we have now. Not only did he not do a single thing I know of to hurt the American people (and yes, I could be wrong about that, I don't know about everything he did, the mainstream Marxist media did not accurately cover most of what he did and didn't do) but I agreed with pretty much everything I know about that he did. Nothing he did harmed me or anyone I know. He did everything possible to deal with the CV situation, the Antifa and BLM violence, border security in my state, etc. Obama, Biden, and Harris are just plain evil. By stopping work on the Keystone pipeline, he cost Americans 11,000 jobs, and the price of gas in Phoenix has already gone up $.80 a gallon. He is trying to undo everything Trump did, not because it was a bad thing, but just because Trump did it. He promised people trillions of dollars worth of free stuff (socialism) which there was no way to pay for, like free health care, free college education, an artificially high minimum wage, and a bunch of other things. Thankfully those things aren't going to happen.


I hope that "big tech" gets completely shut down. I love the idea of alternative platforms, I just hope that they don't flip and go liberal when they discover there is probably more money to be made that way. I eliminated my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. I still watch Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Sean Hannity on FOX, but that is the extent of what I watch on MSM. And I think they need to leave FOX if they are going to maintain their credibility. I like and agree with what they say, but their employer is corrupt.

Considering how many RINOs we have, and the fact that the Republican party is probably as corrupt as the Democratic party, I am 100% in favor of a NEW party, based on the U.S. Constitution. Both main political parties are part of the swamp. One "expresses" very different views than the other, but when you get right down to it, they are all in it for the money and power. I believe in term limits and a lot of other limits on politicians. But, if that happened, we probably wouldn't have any politicians, very few would have any incentive to get into politics anymore.

In short, it's the worlds biggest mess, and unfortunately other than voting all I can do is stand by and watch it. And right now it is not very pretty.

As for what Trump said and did after the election, I really can't imagine myself doing much different, knowing that a presidential election had been stolen from me by a large and highly coordinated effort by the other side. As far as I am concerned, Biden is an illegitimate president. Even a few world leaders said the same thing, and have refused to have anything to do with him. President Trump was much more popular among other countries than the MSM would have you think. He had arranged agreements with dozens of world leaders that Biden is now trying to destroy. Obviously not everything he did was popular or well liked, nor should it have been. I especially liked his hardline stance against China. I consider them to be our largest enemy. Fortunately several other countries still have that stance, including Australia and India and many south Pacific nations. Even Russia has serious issues with China. Despite Biden, I don't think China's future looks that good. I get a lot of my U.S. news from Australian and Indian sources.

I highly recommend reading Jason Chaffetz's book The Deep State, as well as It Doesn't Hurt To Ask, and Unified, by Trey Gowdy. Two of my favorite politicians unfortunately no longer in office.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

Absolutely true. Couldn't agree more, Jerry...

Trey Gowdy would be an excellent choice for 2024.

Its fast-food's fault we're overweight. Its the pencil's fault we misspell words. Its the gun's fault we shoot each other. And now it's the city's fault we wreck our cars.

I still contend that 80M - 100M people aren't happy with what's going on. And that's just here in the USA. Globally, it's a much larger segment. How this groundswell of discontentment will play out isn't known yet. Temperatures are rising and it's just a matter of time before the rice boils over. Some of our states have governors that actually do represent their people. SD is one. Kristi Noem speaks at CPAC and is recommended viewing for common sense thinkers (27:00). She unpacks a lot of details and debunks myths about her state and explains how she's handled tough times. Setting a few records straight and refreshing our memories along the way.

Trump did call a lot of what was coming and nailed most of it, now looking back in hindsight. One point he made was explaining the physical, mental and emotional demands on a US President. And being able to go toe to toe with other nation leaders (Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un and Benjamin Netanyahu) all of whom are sharp as tacks. These people respect strength and expect nothing less form the USA or they will eat us for lunch. Especially China. JFK championed the idea that foreign policy was extremely important. It sill is today and perhaps more so. Such is how smart people play the game. Pantywaist leadership won't butter the biscuit for any nation leader without negative consequences. When the day is done, ultimately the work-a-day people are the ones who suffer. America is the gold standard for freedom and her people have enjoyed more of it than anyplace in the world. Seeing freedom becoming a memory is a bipartisan problem. Some people are right on this, others are experiencing delayed awareness and some just deny the facts. For me protecting our 1st and 2nd amendments rights are a high priority. Honest elections are equally as important as it's through this constitutional process we pick our leaders. When "we the people" no longer have a say in government it's high time the government be replaced with those that listen, represent us and uphold our constitution. If our say has been tampered with at the ballot box, that begs for serious investigation and corrective actions. Which can't happen soon enough IMHO.

Another concern is destabilizing the peace in the Middle East. And dragging American troops back into endless unwinnable wars. Trump did bring troops home and brokered historical peace deals in the Middle East. I see conditions worsening now under the Biden Administration. I still wonder why Uncle Joe (being the friendly guy he's touted to be) needs to string fencing and razor wire around the Capitol Building. Never seen anything like this in the Nation's history! Interesting statement on unifying the nation too.

Fiscal responsibility is also extremely important as many in America have a wallet. Anyone forcing money out of my wallet isn't my friend either. This $1.9T stimulus bill ( BS backwards) being paid for by printed money is of great concern. Instead of calling it a "Stimulus Bill" it should be called a Christmas package for government. We also know money in that bill will go to "bail out" blue state governors who have created their own problems. I resent having to pay their cleanup bill. A natural disaster would be different. Willful destruction of property (private and/or government) isn't a natural disaster.

As I've said, "You're not going to like what's coming!" And expect 2021 to make 2020 look like a back rub as we watch our constitutional republic falling from grace. As for our moral and ethical compass, its lost magnetic north leading our nation on the wrong course. We drift rudderless now. VDH still believes America is a very resilient nation and will survive this crisis. I can only hope his vision is accurate. Patience grows thin for many. mad

Have you folks checked out the provisions of the latest gun control act (H127) that the Democrats are trying to jam through Congress?

1. Mandatory Licensing and Registration for ALL firearms.

2. Prohibits possession of any large-capacity magazine

3. Every firearms owner will have to submit to a background investigation AND a psychological evaluation

4. Every firearms owner will have to carry an insurance policy.

Those are just some of the wonderful things we may be having to look forward to!

None of those things are likely to happen, at least not anytime soon. They might make it through the house, but they will never make it past the senate. The Demonic Rats do not have enough of a majority in the senate to pass them.

Here is a good Youtube channel to listen to for all things 2A related https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MkYbl3i5X8 I used to listen to another channel, but that guy was just too much about doom and gloom. This guy seems to know a lot about what is going on, but is not selling fear mongering.

I provided all the dope on HR127 with a link to the PDF bill. It's NUTS!! The end game here is to make gun ownership expensive and difficult. Throw in cryptic laws that make it impossible for owners to know if they are legal or not. Then impose threatening fines for non compliance. It's a typical end run around to get things done that are extremely unpopular. Our constitution does provide some protection from the federal government as sovereign state bodies. An example, is marijuana which is listed as a Schedule I substance federally has been legalized in about 13 states now (I believed last I checked). Federally possessing it, selling it or using it is illegal. So how come it's available for sale and use in Colorado?

Texas is engaged in Operation Lone Star. There is a quote from their government site below:

Quote
Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today (3/6/2021) launched Operation Lone Star to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas. The Operation integrates DPS with the Texas National Guard and deploys air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas to deny Mexican Cartels and other smugglers the ability to move drugs and people into Texas.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” said Governor Abbott. “Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans. We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.”

This decision follows a meeting last month between Governor Abbott and DPS Director Colonel Steve McCraw where they discussed strategies to enhance safety and security along the border.


As for gun laws, individual states need to assert themselves to protect our 1st and 2nd amendment rights. We can solve problems from the bottom up. As for Biden, there are more and more people experiencing buyer's remorse. I think we'll see gasoline top $4/gal come Memorial Day. With the expected implications that everything will cost more.

As I may have mentioned, Jeannie and I walk 4 miles per day. Usually 1 mile in the morning, 2 miles on our road and another mile later. We've been carrying American flags on our road walk since we see other people. Just to let people know we believe in our constitution, rule of law and common sense government. Reactions are interesting as we wave those flags. About 9 out of ten cars honk, wave and/or stop to chat. Others drive by with miserable looks which we believe are liberals. Do something patriotic in your areas. grin
