    Leaving the Democrats |The Democrats have stepped on me, taxed me more, lied to me,

    Leaving the Democrats

    The Democrats have stepped on me, taxed me more, lied to me, called me names, and demand I give up my rights.


    August 13, 2019

    By Anthony Keith

    I was brought up a military brat. My father did 22 years in the United States Air Force. In 1954 when he joined, they promised if he made a career of it, he and his wife, my mother, would be taken care of for life. He got out in 1976 after extending his service a couple of extra years so I would not have to switch high schools in Florida.
    We moved out west after my father retired and I finished high school. In 1978, I got a job in the wood products industry at a particleboard factory and began work a schedule that just became normal to me. seven days on, two days off, working nights, weekends, and most holidays. I wore “save the whales” t-shirts at work.
    The industry came under attack because of environmental concerns for the spotted owl. The lumber and wood products industry in the West was decimated over the next 15-20 years. We tried to muster support from our government, but our efforts fell on deaf ears. Eventually after 22 years, the facility I worked at closed. The ability to do what we did, which was to recycle sawdust and discarded wood into a usable product, became too expensive as we had to go further and further away for our raw materials. The logging industry was gone because of environmentalism and government policies to put animal concerns ahead of humans.
    The spotted owl (the Mexican spotted owl in the southwest) was noted later on to be mating with other ‘species’ of owls.
    It occurred to me if they can call an owl of a different color another species, then this should be applied to humans. By a definition of species, we are all our own species based on external color, size and shape, etc.. Why were we not being looked after by our government in our lives? We paid taxes and worked our butts off, only to be told we were killing the planet. Where was the Human Protective Agency? Why was I paying taxes to have the government pay bureaucrats to work against me?

    In the 90s, I watched the Clintons. Bill at that time seemed to be a pragmatist but Hillary, the unelected first lady, tried to take over the healthcare system. I saw it as a blatant power grab by an overly ambitious person in government. By this time, we were well into the spotted owl era, and my distaste for the government sticking its nose into our lives was huge. My save the whales t-shirts were history long before this.
    Now, my parents were Roosevelt Democrats who fed on the nightly news: Huntley-Brinkley, Walter Cronkite. That was the source for news. In their minds, republicans were the evil ones trying to take away their VA benefits promised to them in the 50’s. They believed the nightly news. There was no internet, no counterpoint. When I reached adulthood, we argued over politics a lot more than we should have. My Mother actually believed the SPLC was a conservative organization. We believed the same things really as she espoused conservative positions, but she thought the Democrats had her back on it all. I swore to my mother I would never vote for a party that would put a damn bird above a human.
    It has only gotten worse.
    After securing a job at a hospital, I watched ObamaCare tear through healthcare and then almost immediately watched as our pension benefits were frozen as a result of having to comply with new rules and regulations. My wife and I lost 3000 dollars a month in future retirement income as a result of her company having to reorganize, and my pension is a private plan. Not a single Republican voted for the ObamaCare scam. But hey, 70 million dollars later the hospital has EPIC. My Chart anyone? I understand the CEO of that company has a lot of ties to Obama.

    Hospitals now have departments of people working just to make sure all of the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed and the punctuation is correct just so we get paid for taking care of those on Medicare and Medicaid. I can imagine on the other end that the government bureaucracy has people just looking for mistakes and ways not to pay out. It is really mindboggling.
    I watched my father get piss-poor treatment at the VA hospital, waiting months to get appointments and then just handed more drugs. He struggled with issues from Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam. He had back surgery there without any physical therapy follow-up. He could not straighten out his back to lie down or stand up straight after the surgery. He died in 2011 after having to live and sleep in his easy chair for years due to the pain. I want to say he was taken care of for life as promised years before without sounding sarcastic. But I can’t.
    I watched as my mother walked away from the Democrats. She quoted Reagan…. they left her. She voted for President Trump.
    I never went to college, I am totally self-taught. I am a doer of many trades and master of none. I have had a great life in the greatest country on earth. All along the way, the Democrats have stepped on me, taxed me more, lied to me, called me names, and demand I give up my rights. Democrats were the ones pushing environmental causes at the expense of humans and government takeover of healthcare. They have mismanaged everything they get their hands on, and then blame others for their own deeds. I watch them lie and cheat and twist words. Democrats have alienated their own base to the point they have to argue for foreigners to come into this country illegally in order to vote for Democrats, mainly by calling those of us opposed to this "racist."
    In all fairness, the weak Republicans in our government have hardly stood in their way. But that is another day, another rant.
    I am now called racist, homophobic, misogynist, and Islamaphobic. A gun-toting, Bible-believing bitter clinger. A deplorable. A white nationalist. Nazi. I can’t remember all of my Democrat party subtitles.
    But I am middle class. I have been given nothing by our government and have given too much to it. And it always wants more, telling me I have to pay my fair share. It is a sad state when you get to a point in life of maximum dollars earned that it is taken away by higher tax brackets and the loss of deductions.
    I will never vote for anyone advocating for more government control. Or for anyone who is trying to denigrate me by name-calling or label-making. The reason is my life.

    TRUMP SAID VOTE FOR ME BECAUSE WHAT THE HELL DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?
    BIDEN SAYS VOTE FOR ME AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT THE HELL YOU HAVE TO LOSE!
    This is Sleepy Joe’s pitch so far:
    Vote for me and I pledge to raise everyone’s taxes.
    Vote for me and I pledge to use all that extra tax revenue to expand welfare, food stamps and free healthcare for illegal aliens.
    Vote for me and I pledge to make LGBTQ rights my highest priority.
    Vote for me and I pledge to eliminate ICE.
    Vote for me and I pledge to make it easy as hell for illegals to commit voter fraud.
    Vote for me and I will let Xi Jinping run roughshod over me because China made my son rich.
    Vote for me and I promise to do more push-ups than Trump.
    Vote for me because if I win the presidency that will be a big
    f--king deal!
    Vote for me and I will blue-screen one of Hillary’s phony crowds at my inauguration to make it look like I’m popular.
    Vote for me and I pledge to MAKE JOE BIDEN GREAT AGAIN!
    …not that I ever was but it has a nice ring to it!

    The Left and Its Dishonest 'Truths'

    "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" is a lesson that the Democrat Left has mastered to perfection.


    August 13, 2019

    By Nelson A. Siebert

    I'm convinced that one day in the future, people will be studying how it was that the Left was so successful in manipulating language and redefining words. How was it that they were able to lie to the American people, while at the same time appearing not to lie, leaving them with no shred of doubt that they were being told the truth? Their ability to lie, and get away with doing so, is like a superhuman comic book power. They use this power with the same level of ease with which most of us breathe.
    "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" are words attributed to Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda for the Nazi Party. These same words could just as easily have been spoken by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, or any of the Kims of North Korea. The official state-approved newspaper in the USSR was called Pravda, and it was the sole "authoritative" source for "news" and "information" — or propaganda — available to the average Soviet citizen.
    "Pravda" translates to English as "truth."
    Telling the "truth" through lies is not a recent phenomenon, but it is something the Democrat Left has mastered to great effect by employing demagogic tactics that exploit people's emotions and built-in biases. It is not difficult to observe this phenomenon. When you appeal specifically and predominantly to people's emotions, their ability to critically analyze the issue is all too often nonexistent. The heart wholly overrides the brain.
    Now, does the right lie? Of course! Are conservatives perfect? Of course not! They are human. Humans, by their nature, are flawed. Ironically, though, the fact that they more often tend to engage in expressing unpleasant and honest truths, the truths that people do not want to hear, such as the consequences of a spiraling debt, welfare entitlement programs, and mass illegal immigration, makes them less likeable to many people, who recoil when confronted with unpleasant truths and simply prefer to dismiss conservatives, and Republicans in general, as a bunch of old fuddy-duddies.

    So how does the Left lie to mischaracterize? It's oftentimes subtle, but it comes as follows:
    If you believe in legal, controlled immigration and want to prevent illegal crossings by supporting border walls, then you are anti-immigrant and a xenophobe.
    If you oppose programs such as affirmative action because you believe that blacks are just as capable at succeeding or failing as whites, it doesn't matter. You hate black people and are therefore a racist.
    If you believe that welfare programs should be used more as a helping hand, for when one truly needs them, rather than as a perpetual handout, making one a permanent ward of the state, it doesn't matter. You hate the poor.
    Dare challenge the basic premise of the "gender pay-gap" by stating that the "77 cents on the dollar" average is not based on an objective apples-to-apples comparison — and voilà: you are now a women-hater!
    If you believe that men who self-identify as women shouldn't be allowed to compete in women's sports because it would be unfair for women, it does not matter! You are a transphobe.
    You may not have a problem personally with "marriage" defined between two members of the same sex. However, what if, God forbid, you still adhere to the biblical definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman? Guess what: you're a homophobe.
    "But I have gay friends!" you say? "It doesn't matter; you hate gay people!"
    Dare to challenge the idea of "man-made" climate change by bringing to bear empirical evidence suggesting that climate has always changed, and often to extremes, throughout our planet's history...irrespective of atmospheric CO2 levels. If you were able to complete that sentence before being labeled a "climate denier," or far worse, then congratulations!
    "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" is a lesson that the Democrat Left has mastered to perfection, and leftists have done so with the enthusiastic support of the vast majority of national "news" outlets, becoming a truly formidable force in winning hearts and minds. Most of us understand full well the consequences of political ideologies when taken to their radical extremes. However, I can't believe that we are living in a time where entire populations continue to allow themselves to be lied to. If there's another case to be made with regard to historical ignorance, and repeating the same mistakes, then this might be a good place to start.
    Can one be dishonest on the right just like on the Left? Yes! Then why do I focus most of my overall criticism on the Left? Because the right doesn't hold the megaphones of culture, nor on mainstream political discourse. It isn't the right that has transformed many of our universities into indoctrination centers for radical, leftist ideology — with the peddling of "social justice," "safe spaces," and "intersectionality" — where conservatives, either students or guest speakers, are often silenced by radical mobs of brainwashed students who will sooner set school property on fire because they cannot tolerate ideas that in any way challenge their rigid orthodoxy. Neither does the right hold the reins in the entertainment industry, where the lines between storytelling and "woke" "identity politics" have now been hopelessly blurred.
    The Left is omnipresent, while the right, in contrast, is Bigfoot or the Chupacabra. In other words, one cannot simply go about life pretending the Left doesn't exist, as its creeping influence is undoubtedly everywhere!
    In 1710, in an essay for The Examiner, Jonathan Swift wrote:
    Besides, as the vilest writer has his readers, so the greatest liar has his believers; and it often happens, that if a lie be believed only for an hour, it has done its work, and there is no farther occasion for it. Falsehood flies, and Truth comes limping after it; so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late, the jest is over, and the tale has had its effect.
    It is going to take more than just simply telling others, "You're being lied to, and I'm telling you the truth!" A possible antidote against the relentless onslaught of fabricated and highly processed "truths" might be found in gently encouraging others to view the world without their ideological lenses — at least for a moment, and just long enough to see the clear picture, seeing through critical eyes without being blinded by emotion.
    Begin with those closest to you. Avoid getting frustrated — I know that's not at all easy to do — and encourage them to take the time to give serious thought to an issue. Any issue. And give them time to become better aware of their own proclivity toward bias, rather than being so quick to succumb to knee-jerk, hysterical responses, which are the very reaction that the Left, along with its acolytes in the "Pravda" media, aims to elicit.
