The choice is really quite simple.

Our presidential election is only a few weeks away. 

We have the choice between the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, and the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Yes, we have to vote for one of these two men, but we also need to consider what these two men represent.

Let’s review what you apparently support by voting for either the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, or the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Democrats/liberals believe it is a woman’s right to abort a baby right up to the moment before birth.

Republicans/conservatives believe all babies have a right to be born and live. 

Democrats/liberals support defunding police departments.  All criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe if anything, police department support needs to be increased.

Democrats/liberals support taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Again, all criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and bear arms, as guaranteed in The Constitution.

Democrats/liberals believe anyone from anywhere should be able to freely walk right into our country whenever they feel like it.  The drug cartels and human traffickers love this.

Republicans/conservatives believe our borders should be secure, limiting who can and who can’t come in at any given time, while affording us an orderly and managed legal immigration process.

Democrats/liberals believe in tearing down monuments to our history as a country.

Republicans/conservatives believe in honoring and learning from our history, not trying to erase it.

Democrats/liberals support “sanctuary” cities and states, where illegal immigrants can live without fear of being taken into Federal custody and charged with crimes or be deported.

Republicans/conservatives believe illegal immigrants are “illegal” and are here illegally, and should be treated as such. Republicans/conservatives also believe that the concerns of legal citizens should come before those of illegal immigrants.  

Democrats/liberals support raising taxes across the board.  They claim working class people won’t be affected, but we all know higher tax rates for companies and corporations are just passed down to us.

Republicans/conservatives support the continued reduction of taxes across the board.

Democrats/liberals immediately take money from the military at their earliest opportunity, weakening our nation’s defense.

Republicans/conservatives believe a strong military is an absolute necessity in today’s global environment.  The defense of our country is also the federal government’s primary responsibility per The Constitution.

…   

Democrats/liberals love implementing a seemingly never-ending list of federal regulations designed to suffocate construction, business operations, and whatever else they can think of to stifle our civil liberties.

Republicans/conservatives believe some regulations are necessary, but that less regulation is preferable in order promote businesses and maintain a strong economy.  

… 

Democrats/liberals feel it is a good idea to allow anyone living in our country to vote, regardless of whether they are here legally or not, and regardless of whether the voter has any proper ID to prove who they are.  

Republicans/conservatives believe only legal citizens should be allowed to vote, and that an ID should be required.

Democrats/liberals believe that government should be the “end all be all” for anyone living in America.

Republicans/conservatives believe that government is a “necessary evil,” and that most things are done more efficiently and cheaper by the private sector.

Democrats/liberals believe in a person’s dependence on government, and that having some form of a socialist government is more desirable that our capitalist system, even though no socialist government in the past can be pointed to as a successful government.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in our capitalist way of doing things, providing for ourselves as a rule, and system which allows individuals to rise to any level of success, dependent on the individuals’ desire to attain it.

 … 

Democrats/liberals believe in free speech as long as your speech agrees with their beliefs, if not, they have no problem with censoring or silencing you.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in the 1st Amendment, and that everyone has a right to their own opinions and that they have a right to voice those opinions. 

Democrats/liberals believe rioting, burning, and looting are acceptable forms of “peaceful protesting.”  They believe in deferring to the desires of “the mob” as opposed to following the law.

Republicans/conservatives believe in law and order, and that no one has the right to harm other people or their property as part of their “protest.”

Democrats/liberals prefer to operate in a way that highlights a person’s racial identity, gender identity, or sexual preference above all else…, except their political leaning.  

Republicans/conservatives prefer to identify people by the quality of their character and by their actions and beliefs, without concern for race, color, or creed.

Democrats/liberals believe the United States’ industry, people and economy need to be punished and restricted due to “climate change,” while the rest of the world is allowed to keep right on polluting and taking advantage of us.

Republicans/conservatives believe if “climate change” is real, it wasn’t caused by us and we have no real way of affecting “climate change” one way or the other.

Democrats/liberals believe fossil fuels are evil and need to be done away with.  

Republicans/conservatives believe fossil fuels are still the energy souce of choice right now, at least until other options become viable. Republicans/consrvatives like the US having energy independence, not having to rely on the Middle East for anything, contolling our own energy pricing.

Democrats/liberals believe it’s okay for the “media” to operate as an arm of the democrat party, reporting only things that support their narrative, while attacking republicans/conservatives, and especially President Trump on a daily basis.  

Republicans/conservatives believe the “media” should report from an unbiased point of view, acting as a watchdog against all government improprieties, regardless of which party it is. 

And what about the economy?

Democrats/liberals point to the economy after China, and the democrats I believe, dropped the coronavirus bomb on us.  

Republicans/conservatives point the hottest economy in history, prior to the China virus, and believe President Trump can get our econmy humming again. Without the release of “The virus,” the democrats would not have stood a chance in this election.  

So, like I said in the beginning, “The choice is really quite simple.”  

The differences between democrats/liberals and republicans/conservatives have never been more obvious. 

The question is which side are you on?

If you’re having a hard time deciding who to vote for, you are obviously one confused individual!

There should be no undecided voters at this point. 

If you really are undecided, then maybe you shouldn’t even bother voting.

Just sayin’.

The liberal mantra is “Do as I say, not as I do!”

Over the Labor Day weekend, 35 people were shot in the city of Chicago, and seven people were killed as a result of gun violence.

Unless you were tuned into Fox News you probably didn’t hear about this.

That’s because this, of course, was ignored by democrats and their partners in crime, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” because Chicago already has many of the gun laws which are being proposed by democrats to solve gun violence nationally.

chitown 6

chitown 9

Another example of “propaganda by omission.”

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Sen. Ted Cruz over the latest burst of gun violence in the city, claiming Monday that Chicago’s decades-long crime problem is actually the fault of Republican-run states like Indiana – because they don’t have ‘commonsense gun legislation’ in place.”

Ohhhh, riiiiight.  I get it.  Of course…, Chicago’s crime rate and gun violence problems are due to the Republicans in Indiana!

Makes sense to me…, NOT!

I guess you have to have some sense before you can have any common sense, Ms. Lightfoot.

She then added that Senator Cruz should, ‘“Keep our name out of your mouth.’”

Oooooh.  That sounds like a threat!

chitown 5

It also sounds like Lori Lightfoot (Seriously?) is trying to deny Senator Cruz his right of freedom of speech.

Do as we say, not as we do.

It sounds like she had “republicans” in her mouth.

It sounds like she had “Indiana” in her mouth.

Do as we say, not as we do.

chitown 10

“The retort came after Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted that ‘gun control doesn’t work’ and pointed to the Democrat-run city as evidence that ‘disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.’ His tweet referenced an article reporting that at least 35 people were shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend amid a continuing crime wave in the city.”

‘“Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates,’ Cruz tweeted. ‘Let’s protect our citizens.’”

Lightfoot, who was elected mayor of Chicago earlier this year, then tweeted something about Indiana, Wisconsin and Mississippi and recovered firearms.

chitown 2

chitown 14

chitown 3

Now she’s got “Wisconsin” and Mississippi” in her mouth as well.

Mississippi?  Really?  What the hell does Mississippi have to do with Chicago?

Do as we say, not as we do.

Don’t you know it’s everyone and anyone’s fault EXCEPT the poor helpless people of Chicago.

chitown 4

She then went on to call Republicans ‘cowards’ and blah, blah, blah and blah, blah, blah.

If this feud goes on much longer, we’re bound to see the race card come out!

‘“When @tedcruz and the @gop dismiss common sense gun policies, they disrespect victims and their families, who deserve to live without pain and fear,’ she [Lori Lightfoot] added.”

chitown 11

chitown 12

Yes, Ms. Lightfoot…, “disrespected victims and their families,” in the city of Chicago, do “deserve to live without pain and fear.”

The people of Chicago also deserve more than the poor excuse for a mayor you are.

Crowd taunts and throws things at Philadelphia police officers…, during latest standoff and shootout!

Believe me my friends…, the wild, wild, west was never this wild…, and certainly not this stupid.

Danielle Wallace of Fox News reports that, “Onlookers were seen taunting and throwing things at Philadelphia police Wednesday night amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six cops wounded, and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer making his way to the scene.”

Put your cursor on the hyperlink, press “ctrl” and click to watch the video.

https://youtu.be/Qc5RUGgb-6A

Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff said, “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire!”

philly 4

philly 5

Unbelievable.

philly 1

Who are these “people?”

And I use the term “people” begrudgingly.

philly 7

‘“Several officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant at the multifamily home — in connection with what may have been a drug-related offense — when things “went awry almost immediately,” and the shooter opened fire,’ Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. said.”

“The dramatic shootout in Philadelphia stretched on for more than eight hours as six officers were shot.”

“After withstanding more than five hours of gunfire, SWAT officers managed to get the two officers and three hostages out of the residence safely. The gunman eventually surrendered just after midnight Thursday, exiting the residence with his hands in the air and with a police light shining on him, surrounded by a cloud of tear gas.”

I applaud these officers for doing their jobs and risking their lives…, but on the other hand I have to wonder “who the hell would want to be a cop in these big cities these days?!”

You couldn’t pay me enough to put up with that crap, while risking my life everyday on top of it.

How long is it going to be before there won’t be anyone to do that job?

How long is it going to be before the gangs and drug lords run the cities and are the law there?

How far away are we from an “Escape from New York” type of scenario?

philly 2

In case you’re not familiar with this movie, “Escape from New York” is a movie made in 1981 about a crime-ridden United States in 1997, (We’re over 20 years past that now!) where New York City’s Manhattan Island (the entire island) has been converted into a maximum-security prison, and “once you go in you never come out.”

Think about it.

How far are we away from just abandoning some of these cities and letting these people who want to live in a lawless world just sit there and kill each other off whenever they want?

If they don’t want the police there and they don’t appreciate the police there, then fine…, but then realize you’re on your own, and don’t come crying later.

As usual, there are all kinds of calls for additional gun control laws, blah, blah, blah…, blah, blah, blah.

philly 11

Excuse me…, but isn’t discharging a weapon in the city already a crime?

philly 9

Isn’t shooting at police officers already a crime?

Isn’t attempted homicide already a crime?

The problem here is with the individual.

The problem here is with the “justice” system.

philly 10

This individual already had a criminal record as long as your arm.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “Court documents obtained by FOX29 show Maurice Hill’s [the shooter’s] lengthy criminal history, including a least a dozen arrests since he turned 18.  The 36-year-old has been in and out of prison since 2002 after convictions for such crimes as illegal possession of guns and aggravated assault.”

“Records obtained by FOX29 also showed dozens of serious charges over the years that were later withdrawn in court.”

“Hill also spent time in federal prison, pleading guilty to federal firearms violations in 2008.”

The problem is he should have never been out on the street and free to commit another crime.

The problem is they should have locked this guy up a long time ago and thrown away the key.

The people of Philadelphia are extremely lucky that the incompetent liberal court system there didn’t cost someone their life in this latest shooting.

As usual, the liberals are demonstrating they are good at exploiting a situation rather than helping to realistically address the situation.

philly 8

Slapping people on the wrists for using a gun illegally just can’t be acceptable anymore.  They need to be taken out of circulation and put away.

Using a weapon improperly needs to be treated with zero tolerance.

Build 20 more prisons for these people if need be.  It would definitely be worth all of the innocent lives we would save.

Chicago’s a “sanctuary” city?

Chicago, Illinois and its liberal democrat leadership claim it be a “sanctuary” city.

I think you’d be safer walking around downtown Baghdad, taking a hike through North Korea or spending a weekend in Benghazi.

According to Merriam-Webster, “sanctuary” means “a place of refuge or safety.”

Elizabeth Llorente of Fox News reported that “Chicago has most violent weekend this year: 52 shot, 10 dead.

chicago 2

Wow…, 52 shot and 10 dead in one weekend!  Those numbers prompted me to look more closely at some other numbers.

My first reaction when I saw these numbers was that these numbers remind me of numbers you might see in a real “war zone.”

So I decided to look at the casualty numbers from the war in Afghanistan and see how the “sanctuary” city of Chicago compared.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of deaths suffered by our military personnel in Afghanistan was 857.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of gun deaths recorded in Chicago, Illinois was 1,216.

You can tack on another 20,000 or so casualties during that time frame as well.

This is a “sanctuary” city?

A “sanctuary” for who?

chicago 7

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States.

It is also, by definition, a “war zone.”

Actually…, based on the numbers, Chicago is worse than the war zone in Afghanistan.

chicago 3

According to Kristine Frazao of WJLA-TV in Washington D.C., “Some states with strictest gun laws also have the most dangerous cities.”

“One of the top ten states with the most restrictive gun laws in the country is Illinois, where last year there were 650 murders in Chicago alone, according to a USA Today’s compilation of crime data.”

chicago 4

“In Maryland, another state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, Baltimore had 343 murders last year and has highest per capita murder rate in the nation. The city was also just named the most dangerous city in America by USA Today.”

Liberals still haven’t figured out that criminals typically don’t follow “the law!”  Or maybe they have, but they just don’t care.

“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said she’s considering replacing Johnson [Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson], but will not decide until after a more thorough study of the city’s problems, according to WGN-TV.”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

Just off the top of my head…, I would say there are too many criminals on the streets with too many weapons.  Now that’s just off the top of my head mind you.

“On Twitter, [Department spokesman Anthony] Guglielmi assailed a program known as ‘I-Bond’ that allows Cook County offenders to be released on a no-cash bond. The program was implemented in 1982 to address jail overcrowding.  But critics long have said it provides criminals a fast way to get back on the streets.”

‘“Letting gun offenders out on I-Bonds shows there is absolutely no repercussion for carrying illegal guns in Chicago,’ Guglielmi tweeted.”

Again…, just off the top of my head…, I would say these I-Bond things are a real issue as well…, but that’s just off the top of my head…, again, mind you.

In my mind, you would address jail overcrowding by building a bigger jail or another jail…, not letting criminals back out on the street who are a threat to the community…, but that’s just me.

Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy says a pregnant Ochoa-Lopez, who was killed and whose baby was cut from her womb, was strangled while being shown a photo album of the late son and brother of her attackers. (AP Photo/Teresa Crawford)

What?!

Are you kidding me?!

Again…, just off the top of my head now…, I would say that part of the problem is that some of these gang members are not even human beings!

These people don’t need to be let out on bail when they’re caught…, they need to be locked up and the key thrown away…, regardless of how much it costs to keep them behind bars.

The alternative is more people are going to die.

These liberal “do gooders,” which is a fallacy all on its own, should be forced to live in the neighborhoods these “things” prey on.

They are obviously willing to take their chances with the lives of other law abiding citizens in Chicago…, why not their own?
