The Democrat Wave

Posted by Troy on 9th November 2017 in Political

In special election after special election, the media declared “This is referendum on Trump!”  Remember that?  In Kansas and Georgia and other red states?  The resistance was going to conquer Trump?  Remember the Trumpslayer Ossoff?  And each time, they failed.  It would appear that they learned their lesson.  So this time, they waited for the races to be in blue states, declare that it’s a referendum election, and when the Democrats won, say “See!  The Democrats are back!”  Because the Media is all about the narrative.  Unfortunately for them, they lost all their credibility in the last election because they kept peddling a narrative.  Once you lose that credibility, you lose your power to craft the narrative, especially when you have a President that really doesn’t care about you and your supposed power.  It’s like Trump has said to the Media “Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the [White House in the Swamp] to take back the [country] you have stolen,   For my will is as strong as yours, and my [voice] as great.  You have no power over me!”

This wasn’t a wave.  This was Democrats winning races that they were supposed to win.  Nothing more.  Maybe you’d like to predict that Democrats are going to win in California next?  Go ahead if it makes you feel good.

Long Live the Constitution!

Governor Chris Christie

Posted by Troy on 29th July 2013 in Current Events, Political

Originally, I think everyone (well…not everyone) liked Chris Christie.  When people opposed his cost saving measures, he would cut them off and wouldn’t allow them to take it to some ridiculous, emotional level that denied the merits of what he was doing.  Everyone cheered this, as I think most people are tired of being lead around by the heart and having us go further and further in debt for it.  However, over time, it turned out that his bombastic attitude did not extend to just the issues.  He isn’t the no-nonsense leader that we have all be waiting for.  Instead, he is an imperial leader who doesn’t like to be questioned.  Of course, who likes to be questioned?  Still, in our system of government, you do not get to have your way and override your opposition just because they disagree with you.  One has to ask, isn’t that a lot like Obama himself?  In fact, Christie supports global warming, cap and tax, gun control measures, and the NSA spying on Americans.  How can we trust him?  I sincerely hope that we, as a country, do not fall for his sales pitch and see him as he really is.

Long Live the Constitution!
