Bye Obama! 5 Things to Be Thankful for

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Everything about it: the season, the food, and watching football is wonderful. As we set aside this Thursday to show our gratitude, I’ve listed five things for which I’m thankful for.

1. Obama Will Soon Be Gone

The End of an Error.

Under President Obama, our country’s national debt has nearly doubled, ISIS has grown, and Obamacare has been proven to be a disaster. We elected our first black president yet race relations are terrible thanks to his race baiting agenda. We are less respected by our allies and not feared by our enemies. Thankfully, Obama will be soon be gone and we can start the much needed process of rebuilding our country.

2. Hillary Clinton Will NOT Be Our Next President

The more I think about, the more it scares me how close as a country we were to electing Hillary Clinton as our next Commander-in-Chief. We almost elected an evil, corrupt, lying globalist. That is scary. I’m very thankful for the scores of Americans who were not fooled by this wolf in sheep’s clothing. Had we elected her, it would have been like a third term of Obama, yet much, much worse.

3. President-Elect Trump

Whether you’re a Trump fan or not, I’m sure as fellow conservatives we can all agree that our country will be much better off under a Trump administration than it would have under another Clinton administration. I’m so glad we’ll finally have a president who puts America and it’s people first. I’m glad Trump supports the First and Second Amendments, understands the importance of having a secure border and a strong military, and will work to get our economy back on track.

4. The Supreme Court

One of the biggest issues that was facing our country this election was who would choose our next Supreme Court justices. Would Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? This was something I would strongly urge “Never Trump” Republicans I would come across to think about. Do you want a President Clinton choosing Supreme Court justices who would erase our Constitution and destroy our liberties? President-Elect Trump has promised to appoint justices who will uphold and defend the Constitution and the principles that made our country great.

5. America

This is America. We eat bacon, shoot guns, watch football, salute the flag, and stand for the National Anthem. As the saying goes, “Don’t like it? Leave it.” Though I hate the direction our country has been heading, and the people who’ve been running it, especially over the past eight years, I am thankful America is the greatest country on earth. I’ll fight to keep it that way. This generation of millennials that are being indoctrinated to despise America by our education system is sickening. If you hate America, I’ll help you pack.

It’s Time to Implement Term Limits to Drain the Swamp

President-elect Donald Trump campaigned on a pledge to “drain the swamp” of corruption that is Washington, D.C. In the days since his dramatic win over Hillary Clinton, the swamp has noticeably come alive with activity. All kinds of nasty swamp creatures (elected officials, lobbyists, special interest groups) have come forward and dug their toes in the mud in advance of the looming showdown with our soon-to-be 45th president. If President-elect Trump follows through on his promise to drain the swamp, their power and influence will come to an abrupt end, and we will once again have a government that is accountable to and representative of the people.

The simplest, but also most difficult way to drain the swamp would be to pass a constitutional amendment implementing term limits for members of Congress. Under Article V of the Constitution, there are two paths that can be followed in order to pass a constitutional amendment. The first path requires an amendment to gain the support of two-thirds of both houses of Congress and three-fourths of the states in order to pass. The second path requires two-thirds of the states to petition Congress to call for a convention to propose an amendment, which would then have to gain the support of three-fourths of the states in order to be adopted.

Since it is unlikely that the swamp would voluntarily vote to drain itself, the first path is unlikely to be followed. The second path is a much more likely option; 34 states would need to petition Congress to call a convention, and when January 2017 rolls around, 32 state legislatures will be under Republican control. Assuming that President Trump pushes for a constitutional amendment to implement term limits on Congress and all Republican-controlled legislatures sign on, it is likely that at least two Democrat-controlled legislatures would follow suit. If the amendment were to be adopted by the convention of the states, an additional four states would need to ratify it (38 total) for it to become part of the Constitution. If that were to happen, it would be an incredible victory for our country.

Why are term limits necessary in order to drain the swamp? They would be an effective check on the power of representatives who go to Washington not to represent their constituents but to collect paychecks and fight for their wealthiest donors.

Our country’s Founders were farmers, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, etc. They shuddered at the thought of career politicians. When the same people keep getting re-elected over and over again, sometimes remaining in office for decades, it is unrealistic to think that any meaningful change is taking place in terms of government policy. Career politicians are the problem, not the solution. They knowingly create mess after mess for our country and then campaign on promises of fixing them, but they never do. Why would they? If they actually did, they would soon be out of office because there would be nothing left to talk about.

Would you hire an arsonist to be a firefighter? Would you hire a burglar to be a security guard? Of course not! Politics should be no different. Who in their right mind would hire a career politician to solve a problem created by career politicians?

If term limits were imposed on members of Congress, the careers of Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Orrin Hatch, Thad Cochran, Bernie Sanders, Patrick Leahy, etc., would come to an end. Those men and women are undoubtedly decent, honorable people, but it’s safe to say that if you’ve been in office since the presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, you’ve been there too long. In the words of Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” It’s time for Congress to get an infusion of fresh blood, ideas, and leadership. It’s time to implement term limits. It’s time to drain the swamp!

The Bernie Revolution was a Figment of Liberal Imagination

Endorsing Hillary Clinton is position that still haunts the Bernie Sanders “revolution.”  Bernie was a political and cultural icon for both progressives and independents. Hell, conservatives were also on-board with his message of “anti-establishment” and holding the government accountable , which was a reasonable alternative to the establishment puppet which is Hillary Clinton. His bizarre endorsement for Hillary is still having people scratching their heads. How can one subject themselves to such a degrading level?

Although his economic policies are borderline fantasy, his legacy is forever tarnished with absolutely no hopes of recovery. One cannot claim they are against the establishment, for equality, and care for the middle class while endorsing a candidate who cheated him out of the Democratic race. Bernie is a walking contradiction who will no longer be taken serious by people who are actually against the establishment and the corruption that occurs in Washington.

Bernie’s best bet is to recognize his dirty deed and accept that he is always going to be known as the man who flipped on not just policy, but his supporters who were left to dry in the rain. A lot of emotional millennials are still in line waiting for their free education, free college, and free lunch. The Bernie Revolution was a fantasy.

 

 

George Soros is Behind the “Not My President” Protests, Paying Protesters $15/Hour

“I cannot and do not care about the social consequences of what I do.” -George Soros

The idea of protesting has been perverted in the United States. What was once a collective idea where the people gather in unity to actively promote their ideas, has turned into a violent and despicable political tool used by the elite, which includes George Soros; who is one of the most controversial billionaires liberals refuse to talk about.

The “Not My President” protests are not organic or grassroots at all. They are organized, bought-for, and are being heavily influenced as a way of sparking division among the people.  Protesters are pocketing $15/hour to wave signs, block freeways and chant pointless platitudes while TRUE CORRUPTION flies right over their conscious. They are hypocritically supporting the elite forces they claim to be against.

Receiving a paycheck to protest speaks volumes about an individuals dignity. Protesters are supposed to be fueled by passion, integrity, and true desire to enact empowerment. Those who are spewing “Not My President” are pawns of the elite, serving the globalist agenda George Soros believes in.

Here is how George Soros is using his money to radically influence politics in the United States:

2015-07-19-18-33-59

Aren’t liberals against Wall Street? Aren’t they against “money in politics”? Aren’t they against corporate greed and special interests such as The Koch Brothers? No they aren’t. They are rich hypocrites who will bend over to special interests if it means supporting their agenda, contradicting the overall meaning of Liberalism.

4 Reasons for the Electoral College

After a decisive loss for former Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College, it is quite easy for her supporters to call for the Electoral College to be abolished. “A democratically indefensible anachronism that dilutes minority votes while disproportionately amplifying whites votes,” as Slate.com described it. Never mind the fact they said it should remain in 2012, but that was an Obama victory. Also, I would like to point out for the record that I have supported keeping it in 2012, and 2016, looking at only the system itself and not the victor. Clinton did win the popular vote against President-elect Trump, but before you attack the Electoral College as an “instrument of racism” (because it supported Trump, so it obviously must be racist) or an “archaic mechanism of the eighteenth century” here are four reasons the Electoral College should stay.

1. Smaller states have a voice

Without the Electoral college, large states would pick the President and small states (in population) like Alaska, Delaware, Vermont, North and South Dakota, Hawaii, and Idaho would have no say in electing the president. The Electoral College does favor larger states, but it gives some voice to the smaller states and insures they have a stake in this election.

2. The midwest would have no say

In 2000, 50 percent of the U.S. population lived on the east coast and the Gulf of Mexico, and 16 percent of the population lived along the Pacific coast. With 66 percent of the population living along the coastlines, the midwest would have no part in the election process as the coast has a decisive advantage in the popular vote.

3. States maintain sovereignty in elections

The Electoral College gives the states an added level of sovereignty in the elections process. State by state control of the elections is far more trusted than a completely federally operated system. The states can pick their electors, decide when to vote, how the polls will work, and what times they will open and close. Not to mention, decentralizing control of the elections mitigates issues concerning election machines and recounts. If a nationwide recount had to occur, elections would be even more laborious and take much longer. Being able to isolate an issue down to one state insures that other states aren’t affected by the issue.

4. Candidates can strategize campaigns

The Electoral College forces candidates to appeal to “swing states” states with a diverse racial, socioeconomic, and political palate. Trump campaigned heavy in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and in the last few days Michigan to sway voters and was successful in doing so. With a system based on popular vote, candidates could go to heavily populated areas and turn large amounts of highly partisan voters instead of appealing to diverse populations. It allows for general support over the nation instead of increasing sectionalism.

The Electoral College isn’t a tool of racism or an archaic system designed to keep power in the hands of wealthy elites, it is a system that insures states are involved in Presidential elections and forces candidates to unite the nation by developing a national strategy than focusing on heavily partisan areas.

15 of the Best Biden Memes

Many Americans will miss the nation’s first African-American President.  Many Americans are upset about the man who will be replacing President Obama.  Out of all of the enthusiasm and melancholy about the change of Presidents, most Americans will definitely miss the Biden and “Jobama” memes.














I hope you enjoyed these memes.  Although we’ll miss these memes, there surely are many more to come out of the Trump presidency.

Where Did the Democrats Go Wrong?

Much like the Republicans in 2012, Democrats are running around like chickens, either headless or Chicken Little. Either they’re running around aimlessly and leaderless, or the world is ending, like the protests around the country would lead you to believe. One key difference is that Romney’s Republicans were hopefully optimistic in their electoral endeavors, whereas the Democrats had a slam dunk this year. When you have the sitting President, a tremendously popular First Lady, the Vice President, and a former President in your corner, a loss isn’t exactly expected. Somehow Hillary Clinton still managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. But to be fair, the Democrats’ resounding defeat this year stems back much further than just Madam Clinton.

Since the rather centrist politics of Hillary’s husband, the Democrats have taken a hard turn to the left. Born with Al Gore’s fringe conspiracies, the Left has put a premium on making climate change their issue of the future. President Obama even put it a top of his Presidential agenda, eventually striking the Paris Accords with other global powers. And with celebrities like Leonardo Dicaprio on your side, what is there to worry about?

…Apparently a lot. While something can be said about human impact on the climate, the Democrats made the grave error of trading away a solid base to acquire one that never existed. Hillary Clinton lost for a lot of reasons, but none might be as important, and forgotten, as the remark she made about coal miners.

“Because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right?” – Hillary Clinton

People in West Virginia heard this. Men and women of the Rust Belt did as well. In just one comment, Democrats made it blatantly obvious where their allegiance now lies. Whether you’re a coal miner in West Virginia or a factory worker in the Rust Belt, you now know that the Democrats care more about the dangers of climate change than your livelihood. In efforts to further appease more people, the Democrats lost exactly the base they were counting on. And with that, they lost the election.
