The Government You Elect is the Government You Deserve

As we make our way to election day on the third of November, we will be bombarded with an overload of information about the candidates, some truths, but mostly lies concocted by partisans on both sides of the aisle to sway the uniformed block of voters.
It is this group of ‘swing voters’ that will decide the election of 2020, as has been the case in previous elections.  
The reality that some people don’t know who their voting for⏤what is in their best interest both short term and long term, and what the consequences of their vote might bring to our nation and their individual lives⏤is astounding to me. 
It’s not as if there isn’t ample evidence to make a decision as to what candidate is the best choice, not only this election cycle but for the future of our country, our form of government, our rights and freedoms, our families and our way of life. The evidence could not be any clearer, yet many are still ‘undecided’, ‘not sure’, ‘weighing the options’, ‘waiting to hear more about the candidate’s plans’ or a thousand other clichés born of confusion, misinformation, or just plain stupidity. 
I suppose some could say I am stupid for seeing things so clearly, or at least believing I see things so clearly. I suppose my stupidity can cause me to lose sight of the value of human life when compared to other choices in front of me. I guess my stupidity can blur my ability to understand the need for a strong military to protect us from a growing worldwide threat, maybe I am just paranoid and my belief that countless countries, dictators and individuals across the globe, (and in this country) hate the USA, our republic form of government, our devotion to free speech, religion, and our constitution is just a figment of imagination. 
If I allow myself the introspection and clarity to see that perhaps my stupidity prevents me from seeing the horrific truths about America, its racism, xenophobia, selfishness disregard for my fellow citizens needs and desires, it’s greed and blood thirsty nature for anyone weaker than it, and not to mention the utter failure of capitalism that has brought nothing but despair to so many. I must consider the possibility that my stupidity may be obscuring my ability to see these truths that so many of my fellow citizens seem to understand without effort. 
As I start to look deeper and try desperately to wake up to the world as it may actually be, I find I have to look even closer so as not to miss out on any further potential revelations that can shake me from this slumber and the blindness my stupidity may be inflicting on me.
This growing concern has inevitably led me to question the very values of freedom, liberty, and self-determination itself. It very well may be that all of these afflictions I am suffering due to my own stupidity are not just blinding me to the truth, but maybe twisting my beliefs and understanding of my place in the world. I may actually be guilty of something, I’m not sure what exactly that is, but as the veil of fog lifts on this journey, it feels like there is guilt at the end of the path.  
The freedom and liberty question conjures up another whole set of questions about the form of government that is best for me and my family and the principles that support that government. Some of our fellow citizens now see socialism as an acceptable form of government⏤not just as an alternative to freedom and capitalism, but a better choice altogether. Could they be right?

For as long as I can remember I have always thought that the American republic form of government was the best, most equitable and offered the greatest opportunity for me and every American to rise to our full potential. When combined with the United States Constitution⏤it seemed like a powerhouse of hope for a better tomorrow. 

Freedom means I have to work hard to achieve the things I want and I might not have the ability to achieve as high a level as I would want. Heck I am kind of fond of going to the beach and would enjoy that more if I wasn’t working so hard every day. If we adopt a socialist form of government I would get to enjoy all the benefits of the beach without all the headaches of working so hard.
The great leaders of this new government would almost defiantly make it a law that we all get a beach house, plenty of vacation time, a great regular house, free college education, an electric car (I’d take the big Tesla over the Prius), great healthcare, maybe even as good as they have in Cuba, and everything would be fair and equitable; that is a life that is hard to argue with. I feel kind of foolish that I didn’t consider it sooner, stupidity is not your friend as I’m finding out.
Why I didn’t consider this option sooner, the government running everything and providing all of life’s niceties⏤I have to blame partly on my parents and my teachers. Both of these groups told me early on that freedom was a gift to cherish. Opportunity was the most powerful thing you could have in life and if I worked hard I could attain anything I desired. And it was here that I should have been suspicious. 
What if I’m not that smart or good at anything. Say I wanted to be brain surgeon, but I can’t get the grades to get to medical school, or if I wanted to be a leader of a giant corporation that made heart healthy tofu of biodegradable fuel more powerful than the dirty petroleum products we are stuck with, but I can’t really plan things that well. In our current form of government, I am out of luck. I can only rise to the level at which I can perform; totally unfair. 
In a socialist government I am guessing they will just make the brain surgeon test easier so I could pass, or better yet, just let me do it anyway, that would be fair right, why should the brainiacs’ get the good jobs, spread them around. 
If people aren’t fair and share what they got, the government will just take it from them and redistribute it so we can all share the wealth. Can you imagine if everyone got to be a brain surgeon or a powerful corporate executive making millions of dollars a year how great would life be?
Yes, the more I consider my options, the more I am starting to see just how clear the choice in the next election really is. On one hand we have a man who says some edgy comments that some don’t like, who is way too confident, and believes in that traditional America, you know the freedom, liberty, hard work routine where everyone has to rely on their own initiative and drive to get ahead. The guy who wants a military so strong and powerful that no nation on earth would dare attack us. The guy who hangs on that constitution like it was the most important thing of all, disregarding how people feel for the “Rule of law”. That’s some choice.
Then we have the other guy, he might be a bit confused about where he is and what day it is, and he might be a little feeble, but his vice president can run everything anyway so we don’t have to worry about that being a problem. This guy will usher in a new form of government, at least he and all his colleagues say they will, so I wouldn’t doubt them. Besides, we will get everything for free, everything we need, the beach house, health care, everything. We will have more time off if he’s elected⏤time we can spend with our families at the beach house. He will put some manners on the military so they stop causing havoc around the world, it would be nice if the other countries liked us anyway. The Chinese government seems nice enough if we just stopped blaming them for everything. 
Sure, taxes will go up, but most of it will come from the super-rich who have way more then they need anyway. He can also clean out the billionaire corporations, maybe he will make all of us partners in the companies, no more golden parachutes for them, but a smooth ride for us.
In the words of a man named Thomas Jefferson, “The government you elect is the government you deserve.” 
That sounds about right.

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

In a process called hormesis, low levels of radon exposure can protect against cancer; 80 milligrams of aspirin are thought to prevent strokes, and trace amounts of selenium help our bodies counteract the harmful effects of mercury in our blood. It’s about time politically-correct federal bureaucrats are held to account for the millions of unnecessary deaths their actions have caused…

Are the Russians and Chinese Plotting to Act in Consort?

Will China make a move to seize Taiwan at the same time Putin seizes Ukraine? China cannot be ignored on this issue. And while they look like they’re in cahoots with Putin, they really hate each other and will take advantage of the other if the opportunity presents itself. We already know the chips are stacked against us in this poker game because…

Beginning of the End for Roe v. Wade?

For 50 years, Roe and Casey have been at the center of a political battle, and the court has been a willing participant. For 50 years, they’ve kept this Court at the center of a political battle that it can never resolve. And 50 years on, they stand alone. Nowhere else does this Court recognize a right to end a human life. – Oral Arguments…

Iran, China, Russia Provocations Exploit the Biden Administration

Iran, China, Russia Provocations Exploit the Biden Administration

There is no way to return to the 2015 JCPOA status quo because Iran has already reportedly enriched its uranium to 60% — close to a 90% threshold required for weapons-grade material. Although China and Russia don’t like or trust each other very much, they have nevertheless signed a military cooperation pact. Both realize that a marginalized America is very much to their mutual advantage…

Can the United Arab Emirates bring the Ayatollahs to Sanity?

WHY has Iran agreed to meet with the UAE’s top national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan? The reason should be really very simple: The ECONOMY STUPID! Most people do not realize that the Soviet Union collapsed, NOT by war but because of catastrophic economic failures due to insane mismanagement and with no incentives given to their people to excel.

Five Key Talking Points About COVID

Five Key Talking Points About COVID

SARS-CoV-2 is ONLY spread when symptoms are present. Asymptomatic testing is not FDA cleared or supported by any regulatory bodies. Natural immunity is robust, complete, and durable–it’s “one and done.” COVID-19 is a treatable illness in high-risk patients with early sequenced multidrug therapy. The genetic COVID-19 vaccines are not sufficiently safe or…

Some of the World’s Most Despotic Leaders Run Our Cities and States

Mayor Bill de Blasio has once again demonstrated his antipathy for freedom, having taken drastic new steps to enforce vaccine mandates upon the people of the once “greatest city on earth.” When it comes to vaccines de Blasio would much rather see you evicted from your home or apartment, lose your job and benefits, and starve to death than allow you to make an informed decision about your own medical care…

We Need to Settle the Score on the Issue of Abortion

We Need to Settle the Score on the Issue of Abortion

The slaying of a pregnant mother is rightly called a double homicide. Abortionists have accomplished a human genocide that has dwarfed the Holocaust or any other genocide to date. Not the inner cities where lawlessness abounds, but the womb is the most dangerous of all places to live. Abortion snuffs the life of the most innocent and helpless of all fellow humans. By constitutional law, that is called murder…

Covid and Natural Immunity Explained

Covid and Natural Immunity Explained

A May 2020 study at Cell.com found 70% of samples from patients who had recovered from mild cases of COVID-19 had resistance to SARS-CoV-2 on the T-cell level. 40% to 60% of people who had not been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 also had resistance to the virus on the T-cell level. There’s cross-reactive T cell recognition between circulating ‘common cold’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2…

Attacks on the Hearts and Souls of Young People

Attacks on the Hearts and Souls of Young People

Since COVID-19 infections are so well-tolerated by young people, even one case of myocarditis in the US or elsewhere is too many. Sadly, there are 15,424 confirmed myocarditis/pericarditis cases in the US CDC VAERS system. Fatal cases have been described in the medical literature in the US and Korea, and there will likely be more reports that…

Bureaucratic Regulations Are Destroying America’s Supply Chain Prosperity

Bureaucratic Regulations Are Destroying America’s Supply Chain Prosperity

Enter big government with bureaucratic regulations that hobbled the manufacturing, making, and transporting capacity of these workers. When half of the trucking fleet in the US is not allowed into California ports because of California’s byzantine emissions requirements. Then big government dictatorial healthcare apparatchiks like Fauci and Biden can loftily decree vaccine mandates. Get jabbed or lose your job!

Are the White Nationalist Group “Patriot Front” and Today’s FBI One in the Same?

We as Americans have witnessed our nation’s government disintegrate before our eyes by the domestic terrorists from within, the very ideologies our forefathers warned us and protected us against. Through the years, we’ve experienced the corrupted politics of various alphabet groups staging false flags and committing domestic tyranny in the streets of our great nation in quest of separating the masses with their propaganda agendas and media sources.

POW Camps Are America’s Dirty Little Secret

Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene pointed out the inconsistent justice meted out to the rioters during the summer of 2020. According to her, “Black Lives Matter-Antifa mobs caused over one to two billion dollars in damages in cities across America since May. Over 700 police officers were injured.” She called special attention to the Jan 6 Political Prisoners being denied bail…

The Tyrannical States of America

The Tyrannical States of America

The left views itself as ‘a moral and intellectual elite,’ which is the same thing as nobility. The political left wants to keep you at all times controlled, and they are training you with lockdown orders, mask mandates, mandatory vaccines, and other measures that are designed to subjugate us. The message from the White House is clear: “Lower your expectations.” This is the ‘new normal.’
