    My main reason for voting for Trump is to prevent socialism. Which includes maintaining freedom of speech and bearing arms. And the economy. An added benefit is getting to listen to the libs' wailing and gnashing of teeth for four more years.

  • That is a good point about the economy. I know Democrats continue to say it was an Obama economy but I cannot think of anyone better to jumpstart the economy than Trump

    It's like I told everyone back in 2016, We needed a President who knows how to Make and Break Contracts since everything the Government does is by Contract and mainly foreign trade.

    We still need Trump in office to Make and Break Contracts.

    One of the most important contracts that Trump said he was going to Default on is... The Deficit! The Taxpayer will not have to pay a penny on this debt. And it's legal the way Trump is going to do it!

    The Democrats have tried everything short of successfully assassinating him. God knows they even tried that too. Pelosi tried it once and was arrested and wearing an Ankle Bracelet because of it. Pelosi loaded all of her family members and her close friends up on a plane and took them with her on an Official Business trip out of the Country the night that her assassin was going to blow a hole in the White House Wall and go in shooting everyone inside. The only thing with that plan was... The assassin bought the rocket launcher and automatic weapons from an under cover FBI Agent. The weapons wouldn't fire. The Secret Service and FBI was there on hand to help them, help them in the back seat of some black cars.

    Now here's the clincher... Donna Brazile emailed Pelosi to congratulate her as the new President BEFORE she heard about the foiled assassination attempt. So it looks like several people were in on it but because they are so stupid they couldn't do that right and sent an email ... good as a signature on assassination conspiracy document naming names.

    They just don't stop getting stupider. Now Donna has been hired by Fox News as a host. Boy did Fox go down hill fast!

    Paul Ryan and VP Mike Pence conspired to assassinate Trump and make Pence the President then I think Ryan was going to take Pence out.

    Trump has put the United States Corporation back on the Gold Standard already. The Corporation trades with other countries using the Gold standard. Basically the US Dollar is not backed by the Saudi Petro-Dollar. The US Dollar is backed by Gold now but we won't see the Gold Back currency until after Trump is re-elected and the Fed and Central Banks as shut down.

    Trump by creating Executive Orders has been able to confiscate the assets of Human Traffickers, Human Abusers, Drug Traffickers, and Corrupt Business CEOs and Politicians, Movie Stars and the likes. He will also get the assets of the Main Stream Media owners/operators and news people after they are found guilty of Sedition or Treason!

    Trump has rescued a lot of children from Human Traffickers but many can not be saved. They have been kept down in the dark tunnels too long. When they first started bring the children up they were bringing them up too fast and the atmospheric pressure was killing them.

    The economy is doing great because of Trump as far as I can see. If nothing else it seems to be keeping the unemployed and homeless off the streets holding up signs they will work for food or money. How is a guy suppose to find a cheap House Keeper, or man to cut his grass without going to Commercial high rate places. I would rather give the money to the one who does the real work not the person sitting behind a desk,lol.

  • Leftys can claim it was the obama economy, but even after the covid drop, the dow quickly jumped back to higher numbers than obama ever had.

    Fair share covered the reasons to support trump, so there's not much to add to that.

  • I cannot identify a single reason to vote for Donald Trump. I know of no redeeming value of this man. He has no ethics, no morals and he cannot lead. I want him removed, and his Presidency to be an unsettling memory. However, I will never forget those that enabled him and justified his ineptitude including people here in Bedford County.

  • My eyes focused on YRC Worldwide because I do business with them. Up until July 1st of this year, they were independent of The U.S. Government but they accepted $700 million as an emergency loan under the CARES Act. In exchange for the emergency loan, the U.S. taxpayers acquired a 29.6 percent equity stake in the company.

    Are many of these examples similar?

  • I in no way shape or form wanted Hillary Clinton to be President, but I could care less who voted for her, only that they open their minds to consider other opinions.

    tcreek, why would you ever end your post with a statement that sound like a threat? "However, I will never forget those that enabled him and justified his ineptitude including people here in Bedford County".

    Are you planning retribution on those who have a different opinion from you?

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 1:28 PM
  • The term is forget. Why did people vote for Trump and what does that say about them? Do they enjoy his insults and invectives? What or who are they afraid of and is it justified? Why do they continue to support him, given his actions? Trump used an underbelly of US society to his advantage and brought these groups into his fold. I want them pushed back down so they can do no harm. A lot of us Democrats are surprised at the local Trump support and the adoration of this man. The Trump experience has been unsettling. I wont forget it and those involved.

    Yup, sounds like a threat. But tell ya what, tcreek, the nonlibs remember the past administration and the way the crazies are tearing up the country now. We won't forget. And you people taught us how to act the next 4 years in case sniffing joe pulls one out his a$$. So, enjoy your future.

    -- Posted by fair share on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 3:09 PM
  • There you are again, “never/won’t forget“.

    I voted for him, and I was “afraid”. I still am afraid of the National Democratic Party leadership, although right now it seems to have been hijacked by an even more disturbing group.

    I am not “afraid” of local Democratic leadership unless they blindly support the National. What does that say about me? That I did not like the direction that Obama and the D party we’re going.

    Why do you insult those who did not support Hillary by saying they they are part of an “underbelly” of society (hidden unpleasant or criminal part)? It doesn’t sync with a party that is supposed to promote unity.

    I have often found the National D Party to accuse others of the exact thing of which they are guilty. I do hope that does not extend down to the local party.

    I do not agree with everything Trump does or says, as I have said before, and if there were an alternate conservative candidate, I might give them serious consideration.

    I think what you are seeing in Trump supporters is an expression of their frustration and dislike of the D Party. As a O conservatives (note I did not say Republicans) do not scream our discontent on social media and the press would not cover it so..... what you are seeing is the fringe that have gotten fed up.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 3:29 PM
  • Trump, numerous times stated that those who do not support him are his enemies. His actions and words verify that. The President, no matter which party, is the President for all the people of the US. If anyone believes that Democrats who do not support Trump are enemies of the United States; then that is problematic.

    -- Posted by tcreek on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 4:27 PM
  • The left only offers the chance to dodge personal responsibility and get free stuff.

    That leaves three reasons to support the left.

    1. You're a deadbeat loser looking to shirk responsibility and get free stuff (welfare bums and other freeloaders fit here)

    2. You're too disinterested, lazy, or dense to look beyond the lefty talking points and see what the left actually does (sadly most leftys fit here)

    3. You want to control/exploit the people in the above groups.(politicians,the media,and liberal arts professors fit here)

    I've been posting the above here for around 10 years and no one has been able to debunk it.

    As for Trump saying his opponents are enemies, he is referring to leftys who want a free ride for not working, which is counter to everything the US is founded upon.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 8:43 PM
  • I think there is another reason to be a Democrat and that is that they WANT to help people. The problem is that I think the National leadership have lost their desire to really help and instead are focused on getting Trump and gaining power.

    I do not have a low opinion of Democrats in general. There are very good people there with big hearts And I empathize with many goals. I just disagree with how to achieve those goals.

    I believe one can be a conservative and still want to help people. We think more along self sufficiency rather than tax the working class control the money so people THINK that they need government to take care of them.

    An example would be the holdout on the first round of support for those losing their jobs.

    Now Republicans are not guiltless in this as political crap as well.

    -- Posted by stevemills on Sun, Jul 12, 2020, at 10:10 PM
  • If democrats really wanted to help people,nothing is stopping them, so why wait for a government edict?

    No part of the free market provides any impediment to supporting any charity or cause one chooses.

    If Fairshare started a charity, The Coalition for Morbidly Obese Little People Equality in the NBA,and the lack of 3 foot 10 inch 200 pound professional basketball players affected someone very deeply,nothing at all would prevent them from selling everything of value they have and giving that money to his charity.

    Likewise,extorting money from taxpayers isn't charity,but it let's leftys have a feel good without them having to put the work in to get it.

    Yes, there are some good hearted Democrats out there. I think the technical term is "enabler". And the party leadership have been masters at shackling them to the new plantation.

    Btw quietmike, I can send you the 401(c) info if you care to contribute.

    -- Posted by fair share on Mon, Jul 13, 2020, at 12:40 AM
  • Another question I've never had answered.

    Where is the Democrat success story?

    Is there even one are you can point to a say that place used to be a crime ridden, poverty infested wasteland,but thanks to liberal policies, it's now thriving?

    The opposite can be shown all day. Once thriving areas that turned into wastelands after democrats took over.

    Chicago,Memphis,Detroit,Oakland,Philly,Baltimore, etc.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Mon, Jul 13, 2020, at 3:55 AM
  • Quietmike must have never visited communities and counties in Eastern Kentucky, West Virginia, the Missouri and Arkansas Ozarks and areas of Tennessee where Trump received 80 percent of the vote and over 50 percent of the population is on some type of government program.

    -- Posted by tcreek on Mon, Jul 13, 2020, at 9:16 PM
  • What choice do you really have other than to vote for Trump? The Democrat party is now openly embracing socialism and, in reality, the far left has moved beyond socialism and into Communism. Far left groups openly admit they are trained Marxist. They are using Marxist tactics/training in the U.S. today.

    So, unless you are ready to embrace Communism, what other choice is there?

    Now, most of the Democrats I talk to embrace socialism in the form of "Democratic" Socialism, which is little more than lipstick on a pig. Socialism always fails, because it destroys the incentive for people to excel and invent. It is very effective at spreading misery however.

    The main selling point of socialism is that with the government in control of the means of production, then the surplus or profits is re-distributed to society as a whole instead of banked as profit to the owner(s). The problem with socialism is that it relies on people in the government to re-distribute those surpluses equitably. People will take advantage when they can. Whether that in a Socialist state or free market. That is all we are seeing today with the various groups trying to take advantage of the situation in order to gain the power to take what someone else has built and worked for. Turning to Socialism gives the government unfettered access to that power and eliminates (sometimes through genocide) the competition.

    Bernie Sanders praised Venezuela as an example of a successful socialist state a few years ago. Look what has happened there. Is that the future they are offering? Then, there is other examples; Denmark and Finland, which governments collapsed trying to pay for socialized healthcare.

    The democrats/socialist will invariably point at social security and other government programs as examples of socialism already at work in the U.S. and, they are right. We are already headed for that fiscal cliff. The massive debt we now have bares witness to the eminent failure that is just around the corner. Margaret Thatcher was right "Eventually you run out of other peoples money"

    The only thing that keeps Social security solvent is DEATH. The fact that people who have paid into the system for their entire lives, DIE, before ever having received a cent. Democrats also embrace DEATH. The death of unwanted people has been, and is, a cornerstone of Socialist. Just look at the number of unwanted babies that are killed by Democrats.

    Today's Democrats, kill, steal, and destroy. Those are the attributes of the master of evil. So, again, what other choice do we have?

    Here is an update on Vice President Mike Pence. Mike Pence isn't Mike Pence. The Vice President is a Double or a clone. Mike Pence was arrested and charged with Treason, so he won't be running in 2020. Just thought I would fill everyone in, so you know not all republicans are good. Y'all did know that Pence and Ryan were planning on taking Trump out so Ryan could be the President, didn't You? That didn't work plus they got caught, arrested and charged with Treason, so Pence can't come out to play.

    Trump was going to have Pence step down so JFK Jr could run for VP, but now the charges are more serious ~ Treason! Without Pence running for VP, I have heard there are two people who might be the new VP for the next 4 years. The top choice seems to be JFK Jr or Nikki-Haley. I do not see either one being the president or Vice President. Nikki Haley resigned because she accepted paid plane tickets for private use. JFK Jr. would have to step down when Trump does if he is the VP when the N.E.S.A.R.A. Law is announced. He will be running or appointed to be the President when that happens. As a resigned VP he couldn't run for President.

    Trump's Vice President Slot is still open at this time. All signs are pointing to JFK Jr.. John F Kennedy Jr did show up at the Mount Rushmore Event, but didn't make any announcements. I think he was in one of the flyover aircraft.

    I might as well inform you also of one more thing. Elvis Presley is alive and well. Trump keeps bringing him up at his rallies.

    Sorry! I don't have any BLUE Pills. You have just taken another RED PILL!

    By the time the Truth is revealed, Y'all will already Know most of it!

  • Show me something the left offers that doesn't involve shirking responsibility or getting freebies.

    Show me an area that used to be a slum that was turned around by liberal policies.

    Those were the questions.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Tue, Jul 14, 2020, at 8:32 AM
  • Reframe your questions. Those have implied bias. I have no idea what you are asking on the first question. On the second. I can show you communities and areas of communities that have been revived by policies including targeted economic and social investment.

    -- Posted by tcreek on Tue, Jul 14, 2020, at 10:01 AM
  • They're very simple questions. Everything the left offers is based on avoiding personal responsibility and getting freebies.

    Social security, Medicare,medicaid, Obamacare, government housing, welfare, food stamps, abortion, gun control, etc.

    Can you name a single thing they offer that doesn't?

    -- Posted by quietmike on Tue, Jul 14, 2020, at 11:27 AM
  • You assume that only Democrats support the above programs. You also assume that Republicans don't give out freebies. Two that come to mind are the 28 billion farmer bailout and Promise Zones, both Trump initiatives.

    As for Obamacare - former governor Bevin in KY, tried to destroy Medicaid expansion under the state run Obamacare program; it was widely used in Republican Eastern KY; it became a major campaign item and one of the reason Beshear, the Democrat is now governor. Beshear carried several counties that Trump won in KY. It is a fallacy that Republicans don't use Obamacare. Tennessee has not expanded Medicaid, even though people like Bill Frist has advocated to do so. That is also one of the reasons the parent company Tennova, CYH, stock went from around $40 per share to about $3. CYH owns several hospitals in non Medicaid expansion states, and has sold several of its hospitals in Tennessee.

  • Still no answer to the question.

    Don't feel bad. As I said, I've been asking for a decade and no one has been able to answer it.

  • Defense Bill and Farm Bill, both Chairs are Democrats. Obamas support of shale oil and fracking. Bill Clinton Welfare for Work legislation. Need more. I will get you copies of above legislation and you can go over it and identify the freebies. Here is the Farm Bill for a starter. https://www.agriculture.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Agriculture%20Improvement%20Act...

    I guess the Biofinery Assistance program is a left leaning program that supports a group of liberals somewhere in rural Kansas.

    -- Posted by tcreek on Wed, Jul 15, 2020, at 8:32 AM
  • The "Farm bill" drastically increased food stamps.

    Obama and fracking.


    I know you're having trouble with this like every other lefty has, so let me give you a hint.

    If it starts with Republicans have done...., that isn't an answer to the question.

    The question is to name anything the left offers that doesn't include avoiding personal responsibility and/or getting freebies.

    That means your answer should be phrased as, "the left offers (fill in the blank) that doesn't include offering avoidance of personal responsibility and/or getting freebies.

    It should be a simple answer, except there is no answer as leftys are parasites who deserve no more respect than would be given a tapeworm.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Wed, Jul 15, 2020, at 10:06 AM
  • I have pointed out to you places where Republicans have used the wheels of government to enrich themselves. I have pointed to you examples where Democrats supported conservative legislation. I have given you a list of Republican supported federally funded corporations (socialism). And can show you where Republican voters use social programs at high rate. I have answered your question. I will also ask you - show me Republican legislation, where it does not enrich their constituents, or avoid taking responsibility for their actions that affect citizens. Fill in the blank.

  • If we could continue this without name calling it might help the flow of thoughts and encourage others to speak up. I really want to understand more so, please?

    -- Posted by stevemills on Wed, Jul 15, 2020, at 11:46 AM
  • For the fifth time, the question is if you can name anything the left offers that doesn't include dodging personal responsibility and/or getting free stuff. I even offered you a template on how to answer the question, where you could just add a word or two, and you still come up short.

    One more time:

    The left offers (fill in the blank) that doesn't include dodging personal responsibility and/or getting free stuff.

    It should be pretty simple to copy the above sentence and just fill in the blank, if such a thing existed.

    Trump is cleaning the swamp and now going after the news Medias and social media. Many will be arrested for Treason and/or Sedition. Jimmy kimmel, for example, is at Gitmo right now. His show and all evidence of his show is no longer shown, displayed or advertised anywhere. Hey, Trump warned them for 3 and a half years. Trump means business when he tells them they are evil and doing treasonous and seditious broadcasts. They work for the Deep State and Trump is taking out the Deep State and those working for the Deep State.

    The Deep State has already produced a video of Trump being Assassinated, so watch for that since the Covid-19 isn't working for them any more. There will be more Antifa and BLM attacks and may look like a civil war before it's over. Our Election Laws prevent Trump from arresting Political figures this close to an election! These Mayors and Governors and other Political criminals will be arrested after Trump is sworn in.

    Keep this in mind. Trump has Clones. Two of Trumps Clones have been killed already so the clones do make a big difference. The Deep State is out to take Trump out before the election. If they don't they will be arrested and they know it. The real Trump is the one who wears the Blue or the Red Tie. You figure which one it is.

    Hillary was dying of KURU but they Hung her by the neck and videoed the execution so they can show it next year after trump is sworn in. The internet will go down. Then when it comes back online you will be able to watch all the trials and executions on Video on Pay TV. It will only cost $1.00 to watch from 1-4 pm. everyday. Must be 18 or over and acknowledge that you know it will show gruesome scene of executions.

    Bill Clinton faced a firing squad. Well actually, he couldn't face the firing squad and stood there with his back to them. You will be able to watch all this if you have the stomach for it next year. Remember, You heard it first here on Steve's blog. You have just swallowed another Red Pill.

    You just learned More than You Knew from these 5 Paragraphs
