What has government done for you?

Written By; Gary Wonning

The results of the 2016 election was quite a surprise for many. A lot of people thought Hillary had a free ticket to the white house because of her husband, her views and last but not least because she was a woman.

She was part of the establishment and because she had been involved in the political process for most of her life, she deserved it.

In America, we don’t elect people to the highest office in the land because they deserve it, they have to earn it.

Finally, people woke up and realized that career politicians were running our government and paid no attention to what the voters wanted, it was all about special interests and lobbyists.

No one knows what Trump will do, but at this point in time, the only option is to let time run its course and let him demonstrate by his actions. Talk is cheap.

Who knows, we may all have buyers remorse in a few months, but we knew what Hillary would do, and that wasn’t an option. We would have continued down the path to socialism or worse.

Having said that I think that Trump’s heart is in the right place and he does love America, it may be for his own selfish desires, but I don’t think so.

Many also thought the same about Obama and they turned out to be wrong, so we could be wrong this time, but at least the path to socialism and total control of our lives by government has, at least for a time been slowed.

What that provides us is an opportunity to take a breath and determine what our next actions should be. 

We need to take action and do whatever we can to ensure we never get ourselves into this pickle again.

Facing reality, we must realize that as much as we would like to, we can’t blame all of this on Obama. It has been coming to this for years. There are as many bad apples on the right side of the political aisle as there are on the left.

The politicians take many of their marching orders from big business, lobbyists, and the elites, but that doesn’t mean they don’t listen to their constituents.  

They want to get reelected and the only way they can do that is to get your votes. When the general population expresses certain beliefs, the politicians will also chime in and agree with them., it is the only way for them to get reelected.

If the majority begins to express different opinions, the politicians will flip-flop immediately.

Who we elect are our representatives, not our leaders.They represent what we as a nation want. 

Change our wants, we change our representatives.

Our nation has been in moral decline for years, many people no longer have the principles and values they were taught growing up, how can we expect our politicians to act in a decent manner when we don’t?

I feel this election has given us a chance to regroup and rechart our direction. God has given us another chance, are we going to blow it?

The Demise of The American Indian

photo fo two people, a child and an adult looking at a sunset over the ocean

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

Written By: Gary Wonning

Suddenly, we are once again facing the issue of how the American Indians were treated in the early part of our American history.

Needless to say, things could have gone a little better than they did when the white man first discovered and settled this great land.

I know many came here before Columbus, so he wasn’t the first, but no one else came back to settle and as a result, Columbus got all the press. That is the way it is, so be it, you can’t change it, deal with it. 

In reality, the American Indians all came from somewhere else also, so they too are immigrants.

You can slice it any way you want, or spin it to suit your needs, the basic reason Europeans came to the new world, aside from the fact it is human nature to seek out new lands and explore to find out what is on the other side of what we know, was to find new sources of wealth. the Turks were invading Europe and winning. The Europeans  needed money to fight them. In one sense it was a matter of survival.

Yes, we gave the Indians small pox, but they gave us syphilis and tobacco, probably an even trade.

Things were a lot different then, most people treated others rather harshly, the whites were cruel to whites and the Indians were cruel to other Indians. Violence in America didn’t arrive with Columbus. Most American Indians didn’t belong to Greenpeace, the Audubon Society, or Peta.

They farmed out the land, killed off all the game and moved on, most were nomadic. That doesn’t make them bad people, it was just what they knew and thus that is how they lived. There is nothing wrong with killing an animal and eating it, that is part of their mission in life. The animals are evolving just like the rest of us.

The Indians lived a pretty meager life, they didn’t even have horses until the Spanish showed up.

They were doing the best they knew how, and so were the early explorers. It was a clash of cultures, and there isn’t any reason for anyone to suffer white guilt. In most instances, I believe both parties had noble intentions. They just didn’t have the knowledge available to do better, I  think that in many instances things aren’t much better today.

You can’t have two cultures, one who wants to roam and go where they want and a culture that wants private ownership of land trying to occupy the same country.

Which culture actually advanced civilization and overall made things better?

Just like in many other areas, the natives lived here for thousands of years and never advanced their culture on iota.

I don’t believe God placed us on earth to not advance, we are here to grow, learn and improve our lot in life.

If we don’t grow, improve our society and remain strong, we will suffer the same fate as the American Indian.

Having said that, there are many ways we owe the American Indian much, there were times they helped us greatly. The Iroquois form of government was a model for our own government.

In George Washington’s daily prayers, the Iriqous “Spirit Woman” came to him and showed him how the United States would develop and where the major cities would be, thus providing encouragement in his struggles.

Without a doubt, if things would have transpired differently, we could have learned a lot from each other, and it isn’t too late.

Neither of us learned the lesson the first time, but there is no time like the present. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could combine our modern technology with their knowledge of the spiritual world?

Most of us don’t want to spend our lives riding a horse and chasing buffalo, or shivering on a cold winter evening in a TeePee, so our culture has improved over the centuries from what it once was.

The United States was destined to become the great nation that it is. Could it have been done differently, or better? Sure, but it wasn’t.

It’s time for us, and the American Indian to stop being a victim, learn from the past and move on.

The Aborigines of Australia and many other native cultures suffered the same fate. In spite of governments trying to help by giving handouts, that hasn’t helped, it has only made them dependent on government.

The Australian government built homes for them, but because they had lived in the bush for thousands of years, many slept behind the homes on the ground. 

There are tremendous opportunities in the United States for all races, creeds, colors,etc. Anyone can succeed if they have the ability and the desire.

Many white people move from the homeland of their ancestors for a better life, The American Indian has the same opportunity.

We all do, if the place you are living doesn’t provide the opportunity and lifestyle you desire, someplace else will. America has everything, all wrapped up in one country. If you can’t find your place or your destiny, it’s your problem, not society’s.

Elections Have Been Stolen Before

 

Written By; Gary Wonning

There are people who refuse to believe that elections in the United States are stolen or that voter fraud is committed. It is only human nature to try and cheat or game the system, that has been going on since the beginning of time. It is only natural that it would filter into the election system.

Stuffing the ballot box and trying to keep people from voting has been going on forever. 

I have a friend who once worked for the Democratic Party in  Lebanon Indiana. The party actually had someone hired to visit cemeteries, write down the names of the deceased and then register them to vote.

When she found out about it, she immediately quit and registered as a republican. I’m sure it happens on both sides of the isle, but, the democrats are notorious for it.

The object of the game is to keep trying to eliminate voter fraud or a least keep it to a bare minimum.

There was conclusive evidence the 1960 election between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon was stolen. There was massive voter fraud in West Virginia, Texas,and Illinois, enough to sway the election. 

Nixon was informed of it but declined to do anything because we were engaged in the cold war and he thought it imperative the country should remain united to combat communism. And everyone eventually called him a crook.

In 2000, there was massive voter fraud in south Florida, again almost all of it in democratically controlled precincts.  contrary to what the liberals are now saying about Trump not conceding the election if there is evidence of tampering, Al Gore never conceded in 2000, and Hillary never admitted that Bush had won.

photyo of teh book Liberty's secrets

The secrets our founders knew

They didn’t let it go, ever.  They used his illegitimate victory in Florida and they blamed that on the Supreme Court.  They said the Supreme Court was rigged!  They accused the Supreme Court of being rigged for Bush.  They accused the state of Florida of being rigged for Bush.  They didn’t accept that result ever.  It’s one of the reasons they couldn’t ever let go of their hatred for George W. Bush, because once the recount started, that’s when they thought they would prevail.  That’s when they thought they knew best how to win by cheating.  And they weren’t able to pull it off.

Kerry loses in 2004, but let’s remind ourselves of exactly what happened.  The first wave of exit polls hit at about five p.m., between four and five p.m. on Election Day in 2004, and the first wave of exit polls showed that Kerry was going to win.  And Bob Shrum, who was the campaign manager for Kerry, walked into Kerry’s office waving that first batch of exit polls and said, “May I be the first to congratulate you, Mr. President.”  So starting at five o’clock Eastern time, Election Day 2004, the Democrats thought John Kerry had won, based on exit polling.

Only problem was , they were only polling likely democratic voters, women, and blacks in an attempt to sway those citizens who had not yet voted.

The problem has been going on for centuries, in my opinion, there is only one way to put an end to it, or at least slow the fraud up immensely.

If we would use fingerprinting or retinal scan to register voters, it would be nearly impossible to commit voter fraud. I bet I know who wouldn’t go for that.

Common sense for modern times.

Bernie Sanders Voters; Take Heed.

Bernie let you down.

After all of the campaigning and lecturing about big business and big government , he caved and went to their side.

What lesson can you learn from this?

You put your faith in an elected official, a politician.

When do we learn not to trust in government?

Politicians and government have their own agenda. Politicians only want to get reelected, and most will do anything necessary to accomplish that goal. Most politicians could care less what is good for you or the country. They are not going to take care of you.

We need to trust ourselves and learn to once again take care of and provide for our own needs.

What has government done for you?

Trust in God and yourself, they are the only ones who have your best interests at heart.

I believe that is what the framers of our constitution were trying to convey. They never trusted government to do the right thing, why do we?

What has Government Done for You?

If We Want To Change Our Nation

If we have a desire to change our nation, we must start at the bottom and not at the top.

We must begin electing officials, even at the local and state level who believe in America and have good core values. If we get good people in the local and state levels , it will filter up to the highest levels of government.

People keep saying the root of all our national problems is because of who we have in the white house and  congress.

While this may be partly true, we have to look at the reason these people occupy the high positions of power.

First off, the people elected to public office aren’t our leaders as so many assume. They are our representatives. They represent us in government, we are the leaders of our own lives, that is how our government is set up.

We are in charge of our own destiny, they only are supposed to represent our interests and desires.

The  way to remain in charge of our destiny is to elect representatives to our government that represent the American way of life. So many times, especially since 1960 when television came on the scene, Madison Avenue plays into the mix, we only elect people who look good, we elect pop stars instead of people who would do a good job of governing.

We elect people who promise to give us a free ride, telling us we deserve everything for  free without working for it. We need to begin electing people to public service based on their views toward limited government and self-rule, not about how much free stuff we can get. We need to elect people who believe in personal responsibility, not people who believe in turning us all into victims.

When we become victims, we become dependent on those who would promise to free us. The last thing in the world they want is to set us free, it’s all about control.

The only way to change our nation and government is to once again elect people who believe in following the constitution and limiting government.

Our rights come from God and we give rights to the government , the government doesn’t give us rights.

Only when we get back to the basics, will our country once again be the country it was meant to be.

Creating More Conservative States

Your online CONSERVATIVE store

There has been a lot of talk about red and blue states. Some seem to think that because more people are moving to conservative states from blue states that it will change the demographics and create more conservative votes.

Not going to happen, when people move to conservative states because where they’re moving from has become unlivable due to crime, high taxes and loss of business and employment because of excessive regulation, they bring their values with them.

Most never stop to realize what has created the environment from whence they came. They go on believing liberalism is the wave of the future and it has nothing to do with the current state of affairs of the state or city they left. They blame it on a politician, instead of  certain idea or policy.

Thus, they begin polluting the area they move to with their values that never work and before long their new local becomes as undesirable as where they came from. They seem to never learn.

A new trend has developed to try and combat this. Most socialists live in the urban areas, leaving the rural areas for one w with a more conservative bent.

As a result, several states have tried to secede from the union. This probably isn’t going to work for a number of reasons.

Now a new strategy has emerged, this is for localities such as counties to secede or attempt to join a neighboring state. There seems to be nothing illegal about this.This would be a way for people who have the same values to join together and to best suit the needs of each other, and would indeed create larger conservative states with more political influence. People who remain close to the earth have a greater understanding of nature and self-reliance than those living in urban areas.

Let the socialist wallow in their own lack of understanding about how life works, let them pay for their grandiose schemes to better humanity. Let them figure out their schemes don’t work without penalizing the rest of us. The socialists are studying life on Schoolhouse Earth and aren’t learning. Why should the rest of us continue to pay for their education when they aren’t learning anything?

Sooner or later they will realize that you can’t just keep throwing money at problems and giving people a free ride, sooner or later they will realize that each and every individual is responsible for their own destiny, no one can live their life for them. There are no free rides. No one can fix their lives, they must do it themselves, to do anything else is a huge waste of time, money, and resources.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

                                                                    Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

                                                 

                                           Henry Gates Staged This Whole Thing 

This is old news , but I think it is still relevant to our current political situation and how our current administration works..

Let me get this straight, we have a distinguished Harvard history professor,a man who is a close friend of Obama who just happens to be making  a documentary film about racial discrimination and he accidentally locks himself out of his house, and while trying to gain entry, a neighbor sees two people with back packs trying to break into his house, the neighbor  doesn’t have a cell phone,so they get some one to call police.

Gates starts screaming racism, an argument ensures whereby the policeman arrest Gates (Obama’s friend) for disorderly conduct . In the process the arresting officer ,after being insulted, and demeaned, is charged by Gates with racial profiling.
And you expect me to believe this was a coincidence? What are the odds of this happening? The people in Vegas would blow their computers trying to figure out the odds.

You couldn’t write a script this good.
How convenient.
This is just too coincidental, the way the world works today, people will do anything and try to fool anyone to get their 15 minutes of fame. I’m sure that this will be a whole segment in his documentary, twisted around the way to best suits Professor Gates.


In my humble uneducated opinion I think this was all staged by Gates, what a perfect way to gain publicity and support for his new film, while at the same time promoting Obama’s agenda.
