Liberalism is an ideology.  Conservatism is a way of life.  The first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with.
One of my father’s best known witticisms was, “Some people are like the old prospector’s mule…you have to hit ‘em between the eyes with a two-by-four to get their attention.”  He was not wrong.  The past two decades have exposed far too many “low-information” voters who elected incompetent leftist politicians. 
All across our nation a quiet rage is building against the liberal assault upon American values.  More so than ever in the history of America, the concerns and patience of its people are being tested, tried and attacked by a group of elitists that is Hell-bent on the destruction of this country.  Voters can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates before casting their ballots. 
I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny.  America is calling, and we citizens must band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.
Refuse to remain silent!  Question boldly, hold to the truth and speak without fear!  The only rights you have in this world are the ones you are willing to fight for.  But you are not alone.

"Liberalism is an ideology. Conservatism is a way of life. The difference between modern Liberalism and Conservatism is the first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with."



" Socialism only works in two places;  Heaven, where they don't need it, and Hell, where they already have it!"  ​~ Ronald Reagan

Most Americans, particularly Conservatives and "silent majority" folks, still fail to understand that NEITHER set of power brokers in the Republican and Democrat parties wants a wall on the United States/Mexico border; immigration quotas; limited government; social conservatism; returning military service people from abroad; reducing government spending; balanced budgets; mass deportation of illegal immigrants; billing those countries for the charges we incurred receiving their dregs; or ensuring the integrity of our electoral process via the ballot box.  The sooner all clear-thinking folks choose to accept these cold, hard facts and deal with this reality, the sooner we can proceed to the next steps in returning our country to greatness. 

The last U.S. presidents who actually pursued similar policies and showed a love for this country as President Trump does were fellow patriots John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

Sensible, Conservative-minded Americans have been forced to endure more than their share of political upheavel, unhinged leftist ideology, so-called “political correctness,” and judicial overreach; and sadly, the beat goes on.  But, we all must be strong-willed, principled people who refuse to tolerate liberal tyranny, lawlessness and incivility.  We would do well to remember the epic poem written by Lutheran pastor Martin Niemoller about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis rise to power and subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

Don't Be A "No-Information Voter!"

Voters in the United States can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates. Electing proven Conservatives is the first step in reversing the damage to our country caused by Liberals. Politicians must also be held accountable for their actions, and ineffective and dishonest lawmakers can and must be replaced either in scheduled elections or by recall provisions. If not, we will consent to our own oppression.

Many ignorant people want to punish individuals like me for accurately promoting the truth. If I’m verifiably correct, I will always speak my mind even if I’m a minority of one. I will defend my rights, and yours, against all enemies, both foreign and Democrat.

I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny. America is calling, and we citizens either band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.

The Oath Of The Right-Wing Extremist:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  And, to the Republic for which it stands:  one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Andrea Mitchell Blames Trump ‘Gaslighting,’ ‘Unfairness of Media’ for Clinton Loss!
By Kyle Drennan, December 7, 2018, MRC Newsbusters
Participating in a panel discussion for the Recode Decode podcast with fellow NBC News colleagues Chuck Todd and Hallie Jackson, on Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell told host Kara Swisher that two of the reasons for Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election were “gaslighting” from the Trump campaign and “the unfairness of the media.”

Recalling a “post-election autopsy” that she moderated at Harvard University with Washington Post journalist Dan Balz shortly after the 2016 race concluded, Mitchell bemoaned: “...the Trump people, they were really triumphant and not gracious at all....the Clinton people were still in shock and breaking into tears at one point. And the Trump people were hardly gracious.”  

She particularly remembered Clinton media staffer Mandy Grunwald turning to the head of Donald Trump’s digital communications team, Brad Parscale, and asking: “You really gaslighted her, didn’t you?” Mitchell noted: “And Brad Parscale said, ‘Yes, and you never saw it coming.’ And grinned, rather than being chagrined...”

The liberal journalist admitted: “There was this whole subterranean social media campaign that we never saw.”

Todd chimed in by expressing his surprise at how effective social media was during the campaign and how “gullible” voters were:

"I knew the gaslighting was out there. I knew it was everyday. But I think there was part of me in my head assumed people were discerning it out, knew the BS from the non-BS. So, I think what my sort of shock to the system was just sort of how gullible a big chunk of the country was to this and gullible because maybe they want to be gullible."

He added: “And also look, you can’t separate that the Clintons weren’t very popular. So, people wanted to believe the worst about them and they own some of that on themselves, right?”

Later in the lengthy discussion, Mitchell lamented: “I think she [Hillary Clinton] had her opportunities and, for whatever happened externally from [James] Comey and the Russians and a lot of other things, and the unfairness of the media, the conventional media putting so much attention on Trump and squeezing out the legitimately serious stuff she did.”

While acknowledging Clinton making “mistakes that were self-inflicted,” Mitchell defended the Democratic nominee by arguing: “The defensiveness, the inability to come up with a credible explanation quickly, which goes back, I think, decades to when I first started covering her and she was traumatized by that ’92 campaign, what happened in New Hampshire, and legitimately frightened by the intrusiveness of the ‘draft dodger,’ Gennifer Flowers.”

In other words, Clinton was really just the victim of a prying news media.

Looking ahead to 2020, Todd warned his fellow reporters not to give Trump too much attention:
"I worry about the role the President. You know, unlike previous sitting presidents, this president is going to insert himself into the Democratic primary. He’s going to want to be a pundit every night when there’s a debate. It is going to be imperative on us to be careful in how we cover those things."

Mitchell touted NBC having “an expanded investigative team” which “added tremendous depth” to reporting about the Trump administration. Of course, by “depth,” she meant hostility:

"We did a piece on Section 8 housing in Hartford. An extraordinary, lengthy piece on NBC Nightly News, which showed what the firing of HUD inspectors has meant. What Ben Carson’s agency has really meant for the squalor of people who are still paying these contractors enormous amounts of money not to fix their houses. Now, that’s the kind of piece. We have to go agency by agency, we have to drill down on the EPA, and the firing of scientists. We have to look at Zinke. We’ve done a lot of this."

Later, she declared: “I think we underestimate the appetite for real, in-depth reporting....I just want to dig and dig and dig more into the kinds of things we used to do in campaigns.”

Where was all that interest in digging during the Obama administration? The fact that NBC suddenly expanded its investigative team shows that the network wasn’t that interested in doing “in-depth reporting” when a Democrat was in the White House.

"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will take your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." ~ Mark Twain


Sen. Hirono: Democrats Have a Hard Time "Connecting" With People Because Of "How Smart We Are!"
By Ian Schwartz, December 6, 2018, RealClearPolitics

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said Democrats have a difficult time "connecting" with voters because of "how smart we are" that "we know so much." Hirono was interviewed by journalist Dahlia Lithwick at the 'Bend Towards Justice' conference in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

"We're really good at shoving out all the information that touch people here (points to head) but not here (points to heart)," Hirono said of Democrats.

"I've been saying it at all of our Senate Democratic retreats that we need to speak to the heart not in a manipulative way, not in a way that brings forth everybody's fears and resentments but truly to speak to the hearts so that people know that we’re actually on their side," the Senator said.

"We have a really hard time doing that," Hirono lamented, "and one of the reasons it was told to me at one of our retreats was that we Democrats know so much, that is true. And we have kind of have to tell everyone how smart we are and so we have a tendency to be very left brain."

[Libtards don't get much more arrogant and condescending than THIS, do they?]

   The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government!
