Liberty Lesson

“A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” Benjamin Franklin”

Immovable Force

 

The tactics that have been utilized against gun owners have filtered over into every corner of the political realm. The Left is desperate to undo every gain that the voters of the United States have earned in the last two years. Any semblance of ties to the conventions of decency and honesty have been severed and the tactics of Everytown have been fully embraced throughout the media and Democrat Party.

What are Everytown tactics? The most famous or infamous is the gun violence/gun laws poll of Chicago done by Everytown for Gun Safety, toted by President Obama, and still inexplicable held as proof by Democrats that their gun laws reduce gun violence. Everytown started with the gun violence rates of Chicago alone before the implementation of strict gun laws, then factored in the gun violence rates of all of the rural farming communities of Illinois with Chicago’s violence rate, and, surprise, Chicago’s gun violence rate dropped dramatically when mixing in all the farming communities that had a violence by gun rate of zero.

This polling “study” was exposed eventually for fraud and Everytown was even called before Congress to answer for it; but still it is used by Democrats, which exposes the true purpose of polling data by the Left. Liberals no longer gather information to find the pulse and direction of the people. They formulate data to drive the direction and pulse of the people.

In elections past, liberals have used this tactic to depress conservatives from voting. Polling data would always appear showing enthusiasm among conservatives was not strong, the moral compass of the nation shifting, and liberals so enthusiastic. Election after election this tactic was used effectively to discourage the conservative vote

The polls always seemed so accurate because conservatives believed them and allowed themselves to despair of victory. The belief in polling is strengthened only because voters historically allowed themselves to be manipulated by them. In time, polling seemed almost prophetic and candidates whom the polls prophesied against trembled at their doom, at least, until last election.

Donald Trump didn’t give a rat’s hairy hindquarters about polling. He was all business and, what every businessman and politician wish they were, the ultimate showman. He laughed, mocked, scorned, and exposed all of the Left’s tactics.

So when the inevitable polling prophesied his defeat, he called them liars. His supporters fed off his enthusiasm and he, in turn, fed off theirs, and together they defeated the inevitable. But the job is not complete.

Again, the left is using Everytown style polling to try and put voters back in their place. To discourage the enthusiasm to take their government back, the Left will use every lying poll they can and voters must ignore them again, again, and again. Stand resolute to finish the task and support the President who is fighting for you.

It’s not enough to bask in the satisfaction of seeing the Left “get theirs.” Voters need to be the immovable force that stands like a breakwater against all the lies, rioting, threats, and false polling meant to dissuade the voter from going to the polls. This nothing more than little Johnny or Suzy throwing a tantrum because they are used to adults giving in just to quiet them and spare the embarrassment.

Liberals are used to manipulating exhausted Americans with tantrums. The noise may be exhausting, it may look insurmountable, and probably intimidating. It supposed to be. That’s the tactic.

Now is not the time for Americans to give back any ground. Giving an inch to Johnny only makes him worse in the next tantrum. Let’s be that immovable force, not give any ground, and prove them liars once again.

Monday Irony

Has anyone noticed that Democrats keep acting as if everyone else is out of line and doesn’t know their place? Has anyone noticed that it’s only Democrats that want to keep everyone else securely under their labels? It’s almost tyrannical, don’t you think? Well that’s what Democrats keep saying, “Don’t you think!!”

Letter to the Editor

The cover up continues in Piscataquis County. The Democrats and their media allies here are pitched in an effort to gain a foothold in The Red County. This has been sent to the Piscataquis  Observer, The Eastern Gazette, and the Bangor Daily. I’m not letting this go and I will not be silenced. They should know better by now.

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to express my genuine concern and frustration that the double standards we see played out on the national political stage have made their way into Piscataquis County. The requirements for a candidate to run for a house seat in Maine clearly read that the individual must reside in the district he or she wishes to represent for at least the 90 days/3 months directly preceding the election. This is to insure that local communities have local representation.

Reports have surfaced, with documented evidence, that Dr. Richard Evans has applied for and received Homestead exemption in the Town of Addison, ME, Washington County, which carries a requirement of residency in that town. To be clear, Addison is not even close to the District he is running for office in here in Piscataquis County. He has his mail sent to Dover-Foxcroft to give the appearance of residency in Piscataquis. Unfortunately for Dr. Evans, by rule, he cannot have it both ways.

Mr. Evans must make a choice. Does he want residency in Addison to maintain his tax exemption or does he want residency in Dover-Foxcroft to run for political office? Whatever his choice, the facts are clear, he cannot run for office in Piscataquis County now.

In the end, the fault lies with the Democrat Party. So used to a double standard, Democrats operate under the assumption that the rules do not apply to them and the media will always run cover. There is a way to end the double standard and that is to vote in November against the dishonesty of the Democrat Party!
