Finally, Ohio can Pass Stand Your Ground Legilstation: Guns and GDP have a direct relationship

As we are getting the details on yet another mass shooting, this time in a California bar we need to talk about the importance of George Lang being elected to the 52nd House District in Ohio and Mike DeWine winning as Governor. DeWine winning that governor seat I thought was one of the biggest election surprises of 2018, yet the media didn’t really see the magic. Being a resident of Ohio its quite clear to me. I am very encouraged that we can finally get a Stand Your Ground law passed with someone who will finally sign the legislation. If there was anything great that came out of the 2018 election it was that pro Second Amendment representatives are fully in power and can act with authority. Stand Your Ground is a very high priority for George Lang and as I’ve written in great detail on several occasions personal ownership of firearms is directly connected to economic expansion and the positive mechanisms of capitalism. Like Florida which has good Stand Your Ground legislation economic development has come directly from it, Ohio has a wonderful opportunity to advance itself from a state being tempted to turn purple to a solid red state for the foreseeable future. And the time to act is quickly before Democrats can reset their footing and start posturing for 2020 elections.

Issue 2 failing in Butler County where George Lang’s district has the most residents was a tremendous opportunity also to deal with the root of school violence in our society, and the expansion of the Second Amendment to solve those problems. To avoid more school shootings in the future teachers must be armed, it’s that simple. There is no gray area on the matter, if we want to protect children from the criminally insane and the destitute, we must use guns for what they were invented for, personal protection at the point of a threat. There is no way to uninvent guns unless society decides to go the way of Ayn Rand’s great novel, Anthem and essentially go back to hunters and gathers living around a campfire, forgetting about the microwaves, the cars and planes, as well as the televisions of our modern society. To take guns out of society is to take away the tool that was invented by necessity by human minds to defend themselves from tyranny. That is precisely why an anti-gun stance in gun free zones is so ridiculous.

There have been times in Florida where Stand Your Ground laws were abused, and trigger-happy maniacs overstepped their rights with guns, but generally the legislation there has kept crime down and allowed for business owners to invest in the state knowing that a criminal element has a minimal influence over the population centers. Guns make people behave correctly, when people know there is a potential for gun carrying people roaming about and death is a possibility they often seek to take their temptations of crimes into other endeavors that are not so deadly. Guns and businesses are directly connected, the more guns in a society, the better their GDP. So the benefits far outweigh the losses.

Public schools are going to have to arm teachers, it’s the only way to promise parents that their kids will come home each day, is when competent teachers are carrying guns in the classroom. And competent parents as well, the more people carrying firearms, the safer a society is. And the reason that Stand Your Ground laws are so necessary is because it keeps gun users safe from unnecessary prosecution if they must use a firearm to defend situational problems. For instance, if a vile maniac stepped into a school right now and tried to shoot up a bunch of students, even if a teacher who was a gun owner confronted that assailant, the teacher under Ohio law has an obligation to retreat. That is the same situation on the street of any Ohio city, all gun owners have an obligation to avoid a confrontation. If police had the same restriction, they’d be toothless in a society to deal with people intent to commit harm.

I’ve been to Paris fairly recently and they have a very anti-gun policy even among their own police and the effects are obvious. The city is dirty, and the people are eccentrically committed to left of center criminal conduct. The major tourist areas do have a heavily armed presence to keep the criminal element away from those attractions, to keep visitors coming to the historic city, but that heavy-handed approach has the opposite effect, it is too much and can be intimidating. Paris is the perfect example of how to lose control of a population center toward the criminal element. As a result, industry has pulled away leaving only tourism to sustain their reputation, and that isn’t infinite under the current policies. Criminals can’t be allowed to rule as they do in Paris, any city, state or country that wants to prosper must empower its individual citizens to enforce the rule of law at the individual level of personal interaction. Law and order must happen everywhere, not just where the police are. That is the only way to have a prosperous society. Guns are directly related to morality and justice.

Stand Your Ground laws are needed to protect teachers from lawsuits and prosecution if they defend students from a potential terrorist. They should not hesitate and act with worry when trouble starts, they need to be free to engage a problem without fear of prosecution which could financially ruin them for the rest of their lives. That is not the way of a civilized country or state. And the answer is not in more government employees to be everywhere all the time as Issue 2 was trying to establish. People, every day people, need to be empowered to protect justice from hostilities born of insanity, greed, and malice. In doing that all public places become that much safer and businesses can invest without worrying about criminal conduct functioning beyond the reach of the police which are often overstretched by resource management.

There have been attempts to advance Stand Your Ground laws in Ohio and John Kasich, the newly born-again Democrat refused to sign anything close. Kasich in his final years as governor simply lost his mind and turned away from conservative ideas of self-reliance among people. Guns are obviously one of the biggest symbols of self-reliance in a culture and Kasich in the end was against gun rights as well. When people start legislating that they can expand Medicaid because God told them to, then all rationality was thrown out of the window and Stand Your Ground laws were off the table. We had to wait for a real Republican governor—so DeWine winning was a really big deal in Ohio. There were a lot of important races that were won on election day 2018 but DeWine winning in Ohio was one of the biggest because there has been a lot of positive legislation that has been held up due to Kasich’s sudden liberalism from 2014 on.

To make Ohio safe and prosperous not only from potential terrorists attacking our schools to protecting that manufacturing plant out in the middle of Ohio farm country from thieves looking to stock a black market, Stand Your Ground laws are a first priority to making Ohio the most business friendly state in the nation. The lack of a clear Stand Your Ground law has actually held Ohio back, along with a lack of Right to Work legislation that Kasich also held up. But now it looks like Ohio can advance in a conservative way and that is the most positive aspect of Mike DeWine and Jon Husted being elected as governor of Ohio. And it opens the potential for Ohio to become very great and a firm state in the corner of President Trump. Part of making and keeping America great again is in making Ohio great again, and with Stand Your Ground laws, that journey can finally take place.

After the Smoke Cleared: Trump Republicans are much better off

I would have liked to have seen the House of Representatives stay Republican, but with so many RINOs in it, the passions of the upcoming generation of socialists couldn’t hold enough seats to give it a proper majority. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the new victors entering that branch of government, so as the smoke clears it may well be a blessing in disguise. The best way to quell the socialist movement coming from that progressive corner of government is to expose it in the light of day. By holding the Senate with good gains, the Trump agenda remains intact along with his ability to confirm judges so the direction of the country will not spin off the rails. All in all it says a lot that Trump was able to stave off a socialist revolt and what happens next will likely scare off any sentimental support that people might have for socialists like Ocasio-Cortez. We may not like the socialist tendencies that have been implanted in our culture, but we’re going to have to sift it out in conflict so that people learn their lesson. And House Republicans need to construct a strategy to retake their majorities in 2020.

However, generally I was happy with the results, locally George Lang won a hard-fought challenge to win his first full term in the 52nd District. That was number one on my list of needs for the election. The second was to maintain a Republican governor in Ohio, this time getting one that is more than in name only. There is a real good shot now of Ohio passing a Stand Your Ground law. A real good chance. The other big thing that needed to happen was that Issue 2 went down in flames, that was the school levy for the five Butler County schools that wanted to extract a lot of money from the public to avoid arming teachers in schools to deal with the potential of insurgent attacks. Those issues were particularly important to me on the local level and the inside baseball aspects of politics. So I am very glad to see things working out well, as they should have.

I was very sorry to see Jim Renacci not to come out on top of the very liberal Sherrod Brown for the Senate. The media gave Brown a free pass, just as they did for many of the House Democrats, which will be exposed rather spectacularly in the coming months, but with the liberalized media that we have, a lot of people like Brown who have no place in government were propped up, and that was certainly the case for Renacci. I personally think Renacci would have done better against Brown by getting more down and dirty, but that wasn’t his style. So the liberal held his long-standing seat with the wind of the media fully at his back, much like the young kid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I think of these candidates as media props who can’t stand without help from their media outlets and it says a lot that so few of them managed to get elected with everything that was thrown at the Trump administration. Renacci’s seat was always a deep pass with a low percentage of completion for net Senate seat gains, and Trump got those anyway, so strategically in the big picture it’s not a big deal. But Jim was certainly the better man by a long shot.

With Ron DeSantis winning the governor seat and Rick Scott winning in the senate for Florida a major bullet was dodged that will establish a turning point that the state needed to experience. The progressive caucus could have done a lot of damage to that great state for economic activity and with a friendly House on Capitol Hill could have made a real mess of things. But not getting a progressive stronghold in Florida it leaves House Democrats isolated and in a position we all need them to be in, with a circular firing squad aimed straight for their positions, instead of trying to aim in various pockets all over the country. Florida couldn’t afford to go blue, and thankfully it didn’t. And its important for Republicans to keep it that way. Poor people who don’t have much interest or knowledge about politics find these progressive candidates attractive, because they don’t know any better. In a few years when the next round of elections comes up during a presidential year the Trump economy will have taken off to even higher levels and impact even more people in a positive way, so states like Florida will be much less vulnerable. This particular year Florida was as exposed to change as it will likely be ever again, so the results there were particularly important.

With all the effort that Democrats put into trying to destroy the Trump administration it is pretty embarrassing for them to see a gain in Senate seats. No longer are there RINOs like John McCain or Jeff Flake there to tip the scales toward Democrats, of a particular note Marth McSalley beat Chrysten Sinema for the open Flake seat which is like trading in a Ford Fiesta for a Corvette as far as standing for Republican ideas. The Senate is much stronger after this election than it was before so that is a big positive. If Republicans could have held the House, the Democratic Party would be a smoking heap now, but let’s face it, the media owns the Democrats and the results they did get were obtained with a huge amount of effort and many millions of dollars wasted. The modest gains they did get were won at a great expense and knowing the way President Trump works, Democrats will have to look in the mirror and wonder if what they wished for will really be worth it. Its much easier to defeat an enemy out in the open than one that has been hiding in the shadows and now the shadows are gone. The map across the country is overwhelmingly conservative except for a few pockets of liberalism here and there represented by the House seats. And that means that promises and hopes become reality and responsibility which the Democrats will choke on both right out of the gate.

Like all battles there are always casualties but what matters is that you win, and the big seats Republicans won both locally and nationally which is of vital strategic importance. On the pro-gun side, which is as I’ve said many times, the essence of American capitalism, Ohio has a very strong state representative in George Lang who will advance pro-business measures and advance Stand Your Ground laws, and he has a governor who will sign those bills. It was never a concern about building up the votes in the House, George can certainly do that, it was that the liberal John Kasich, a Republican in name only, would not sign those bills. DeWine has indicated that he will. That will make Ohio even more of a red state and Florida to the south will join in those efforts. Progressives have targeted Ohio and Florida as insurgent zones of their leftist ideology and both states have pushed away the efforts which is far more powerful than holding a House with a bunch of radicals screaming for power. Now the liberals are isolated into one branch of government and exposed, and that is a good place to have them as the rest of the nation marches toward a new kind of Republican Party, one that is successful, and truly conservative, and for a change, winning.

How Economics Work: Just look to the home of the Whopper

One thing that kept coming up during the election of 2018 was the Democrat notion of inside out economics, as if something grew from nothing to formulate economic activity. Clearly, the only way that economic development occurs is from the top down, starting with an idea, then its implementation, followed by creation, then employment followed by delivery. Jobs do not come from nowhere to suddenly start delivery. Only people who don’t understand the basic foundations of economics could think such a thing and it was Sherrod Brown the very liberal senator from Ohio who said it most when challenged by Jim Renacci—his Republican rival. The entire idea that government creates jobs is a ridiculous notion and it is at the center of all liberal politics. Only a top down approach works which is the general understanding of conservative thought.

A great example of the nature of job creation is in my local community. Near the intersection of Liberty Fairfield Road in Butler County, Ohio and Rt. 4, where I live is several developments that serve the local community such as a Kroger, many restaurants, hardware stores and a wonderful golf course called Elk Run. My wife and I are very busy so we eat out a lot and usually take our pick rotating around all the various food options that are located at that intersection, everything from a McDonald’s to Wendy’s and Frisch’s. There’s a Gold Star, and a Skyline Chili, a Penn Station, and Chinese food—there are so many options including a few pizza places, that there is always plenty of choices and that makes our location particularly attractive to live.

Left leaning people dislike too much development, they prefer lots of green space, which I understand. I like nature, but more than that I love to see the creations that humans come up with. So I enjoy watching new developments come to being. At that intersection there have been a few plots of land that I was hoping would become new restaurants to give us even more options than we already have, but they have sat empty for decades waiting for the right time. Again, left leaning people like to see a lack of development because they think nature is the thing to follow. But in areas where human beings have decided to reside, the ambitions of the human mind can be and to me is, a very beautiful thing. So it was quite a delight to my wife and I to learn that those two plots of land were finally going to become something other than scenery.

At one location across from the Elk Run neighborhood a Dairy Queen is being built, which is very exciting. I love Dairy Queen and this one will be within walking distance so I can take my grandchildren there easily for fun little memories as opportunities present themselves. The second I learned about from a good friend of mine who is in the restaurant creation business, and that is that a new Burger King will be built across from McDonald’s. That is fantastic news because I do love to eat a good Whopper occasionally. My family eats at McDonald’s probably about 5 to 8 times a week, but sometimes we get tired of it. Especially when they are going through management problems, as they are presently. Fast food workers are always high turnover groups by their nature and managers are always challenged with creating reliable staffs. If they get a manager of one of these restaurants who doesn’t get it, the lines are often long at the drive-thrus, and the orders get messed up. So its great to have options and that usually is Wendy’s which is down the street a bit to the southwest.

Burger King is just another great option for us and its creation is literally coming from a plot of land that wasn’t doing anything and is becoming something that gives people like me an option in dining. Its creation didn’t come from some government bureaucrat who looked at that location and thought, “I think people will be best served to have a hamburger place built here.” Rather an entrepreneurial type looked at the demographic data from the area, checked the available land and its pricing and looked hard at a forecast of the new Trump economy and thought that they might make some money at that location. So they put up their money, took a lot of risk, and started getting the permits to build a new restaurant so that a guy like me could visit and have unlimited options to buy a Whopper when I grew hungry. The restaurant builder was taking a chance that he could compete with the surrounding competition and initiated their endeavor based on their best information. There is nothing inside out about that process, only the top down.

The restaurant owners of these new businesses expect to make money, if they don’t then none of the effort would be worth it. It is in the potential of making money that makes all the hard work into building such a place possible. Without that incentive, step one would never happen. That is why socialism fails throughout the world because it is hard to build things, anything. There are so many considerations and without a motivation of profit to lure out the ambitious, nothing happens. Not everyone is equipped to be a restaurant builder or an entrepreneur. Such people often have to work 60 to 100 hours a week, so it’s not for everyone. But the potential to become wealthy with such work motivates the most ambitious to try their hand and that is the key to the American capitalist system. To me I enjoy the scenery of human development sometimes more than a nice mountain or a group of trees. What the human imagination does with wood and stone to create variety in the human experience is something that is very interesting to observe. I never get tired of driving through any town to see what human beings have built for themselves out of their attempts to create wealth. It can and often is a very beautiful thing to observe. It’s not so good when those buildings built with hopes and dreams end up bankrupt and empty. But when they work, they are great to see.

All those inventions of thought make a life-like mine more productive. When I am trying to catch up on the DVR recordings over a weekend and we need to grab a quick bite to eat, I enjoy having the option to get a Whopper and to spend a Sunday afternoon learning things I’ve recorded by people who made those programs with an effort at making money. Everyone’s ambitions come together for my benefit and that is the miracle of modern society. It’s also the nature of all economic activity. Businesses don’t exist to provide jobs, but the jobs are created to pave the way for wealth creation, expanded GDP. And that is something that no Democrat ever came to terms with. They just never understood that basic concept. And that fault is purely theirs. Economic theory is not a newly discovered science, we know the rules. Only liberals have decided to ignore the rules to bend the world to some ancient vision of Karl Marx who was creating the premise of Marxism before a McDonald’s was ever built. But in these days of wealth creation under a capitalist system, the rules are quite clear. And they are wonderful to see in areas experiencing economic growth. Because that is evidence of something even better happening and with every new place of business that opens, it says that the economy is expanding, not contracting and that is always something to celebrate.

Take the Shot: Vote like you mean to destroy the Democrat party forever

Someone sent me this short video of a deer attacking a hunter and I couldn’t help but think of this year’s election. For so long Republicans have had the gun and all they had to do was pull the trigger, but most of the time they end up being beaten by Democrats just like the hunter in that video, because they weren’t fighters and were averse to violence. So, a dumb animal was able to dominate them easily. I look at that video and wonder why the hunter didn’t just grab hold of the horns and twist the neck off of the deer. He wouldn’t even need to fire a single shot and would save the skin of the animal from any bullet holes. It was a great opportunity to get a nice pelt off the beast. But like any passivist, the hunter obviously didn’t pull the trigger on his gun fast enough and the animal just beat the shit out of him, just like most Republicans in my life time. However, I think this time is going to be different. This time it’s up to you dear reader.

I don’t want to get too excited, its voting day and everyone needs to do their part. You have to pull the trigger. Don’t count on the other guy to pull the trigger for you, you need to do it yourself. Don’t count on early voting, don’t count on the Trump effect, don’t think for a minute that your vote doesn’t matter because a failure to do so could put the Republican party in the position of that hunter, once again. My advice to you is to vote like you are pulling the trigger on that dear and put that sucker down without any question, no opportunity by Democrats to cheat, no deep state operatives to steal the election, vote to put a kill shot through the head so that the deer will never get up again, and will instead be mounted on the wall of politics for the rest of the history of the United States. Don’t hesitate, pull the trigger at the ballot box and shoot to kill.

We won’t know anything for sure until the election results come back Tuesday night, and in many cases well into Wednesday on every issue that concerns us. But here is what we do know, early voting across the nation is way up for Republicans. The Trump blitz had more of an effect than a lot of people realized in the media and the voters have been energized who have supported Trump or have been thinking about voting for Trump’s agenda. As it stands President Trump has an approval rating of over 51% and that is after two years of a liberal controlled entertainment and news industry throwing everything they’ve had at this new president. And nothing has come close to working. Nobody outworks President Trump and that essentially sets up a massive day for Republicans on Tuesday, in both the House, the Senate and the various governor races.

I am sure that polling has some suppression attempts in them particularly from NBC and ABC along with the New York Times. But not everything is a conspiracy. As I have looked at the samplings of many polls, I am seeing most of them with statistical analysis of a plus side Democratic sampling. I don’t think that’s by design in every case, just that Republicans don’t answer the phone. Ten years ago and longer when people had hard lines in their homes and caller ID was still kind of new thing, people answered their phones more. But with smart phones indicating whether or not an incoming phone number is recognized or not, Republicans just don’t answer as much as Democrats and that is throwing off pollsters’ ability to get good numbers in this social media age. Traditional phone calls are not getting the information correctly because the way that information is shared has changed.

For instance, several polls in Ohio have Sherrod Brown up big over his challenger Jim Renacci, but there are indicators that are quite clear that there is hidden data that hasn’t been considered. Voter energy for one thing, the early voting in Ohio heavily favors the GOP. There doesn’t appear to be enough union radicals to go out and support the incumbent Sherrod Brown who in any other year would easily re-win his seat. The panic in the press is that the double-digit lead that Brown has over Renacci isn’t really that big of a lead. It’s just that the pollsters do not have access to any better information that tells the whole story. In many cases the media wants to believe that Brown is safe, so they chose not to look at all the other indicators, so they stick with the traditional way of analyzing voting data. It certainly didn’t work in 2016. Maybe they made adjustments for it in 2018, but it doesn’t look that way. Sherrod Brown looks very vulnerable and a strong turnout from Republicans on Tuesday could easily give Jim Renacci a victory and another Republican senate seat which would help the Trump agenda tremendously. The control of that happening is completely in the hands of Republican voters. If they show up to vote, Republicans can win even seats that haven’t been on the radar, one’s like that of Jim Renacci.

Crowd sizes of rallies are certainly not scientific. But one thing that must be considered especially in races where 5000 to 10000 votes can turn an election in the favor of one party or another, Barack Obama or any of the celebrities that Hollywood is sending out to campaign for Democrats are not getting good showings. Obama, a former president is only filling up half the venues of his destinations whereas Trump is getting overflow crowds at every location he goes to. There are no empty seats at a Trump event, and as I’ve said, he gives the same speech over and over. His speeches are on television and can be watched live most of the time. In the laws of supply and demand Trump would be thought to have reached a saturation point with his political stance that would leave a lot of empty seats. There is more going on than meets the eye.

Now I can speak on this topic because every time Trump has come to Cincinnati, I have had the opportunity to see him, and I always get excited about it. Why, because I know everything he’s going to say? I would attribute a Trump rally to the same kind of feeling that old-world warfare inspired in people to charge an opposite line with a sword or a bayonet. It’s a very primal empowerment that Trump gives to people at his rallies, and it motivates people to take action. The unconscious agreement between Trump and his supporters is that if the President is willing to take time out of his evenings to visit people’s hometowns, then people are willing to do things for Trump after he leaves which energizes the base. I saw this very strongly in Ohio when the President came in October to a rally held in Lebanon that was under cold and rainy conditions. I had the opportunity to sit in the VIP area so I was able to see some of the behind the scenes stuff and the ramp the president was to walk out on was slick with water from a very light rain. I thought that the event coordinators were going to call off the rally because the conditions were dangerous for a President of any kind, especially someone like Trump who has the media licking their chops for a chance to watch him trip on a step or have a wardrobe malfunction with his hair giving them the ability to embarrass him, the risk just wasn’t worth it. But Trump doesn’t cancel and when he showed up, he confidently as a 72-year-old man hit the stage like a rock star and people bonded with him, as they do at all his events. After the rally, the people who stood over 12 hours waiting for a 1-hour speech hit the streets and did their work door to door, and at the polls, and that has a lot to do with why early voting is so high.

With all those things considered, when the smoke clears on Election Day, we just need to know that everyone had the courage to take their shot. Don’t hesitate, pull the trigger and put down the Democrats. They have been vile and a strong election showing by Republicans could actually end the Democrat party forever. Imagine the look on their faces on Wednesday after they had lost all hope of everything during the election and showed no hope for the future. If 2016 was an indicator that they were losing power, the election of 2018 could be a final nail in their coffin, so don’t hesitate to pull the trigger. That is where things stand and the power is completely in your hand’s dear reader. So, take the shot!

The Old Hippie Neil Young and his Pro Communist song “Ohio”: Liberals want to take away guns so they can finish what started in China

I didn’t appreciate it at all when Neil Young resurrected his old hippie song “Ohio” ahead of the November 6th election hoping to influence the Republican “red wave” that was obviously emerging. In an updated video of that old Vietnam protesting diatribe about the “Kent State Massacre” the implication is that the Nixon administration deserved to have college protestors speaking out against the American war effort in Vietnam, and that when the National Guard was called in the quell the protests, the four people who ended up dead and many others one of whom was permanently paralyzed should have never occurred and is part of a larger gun violence problem. Neil Young these days is a fat slob who in the video wondered about on stage in front of a large crowd of degenerates likely high on marijuana smoke and other intoxicants and celebrated that the old hippie managed to come up with a catchy guitar riff about that massacre. For many years the leftists, who are generally all communist sympathizers have used the entertainment industry to sell liberal ideas to the public and Neil Young is certainly one of them. But these days conservatives have someone in Donald Trump who can draw bigger crowds and he doesn’t even need a guitar. Sure, times are changing and the assumption that anybody cares what Neil Young does is negligible. Yet his message is disgusting and deserves to be ripped to shreds for his attempt at political discourse.

Colleges during the two decades leading up to the May, 1970 shooting on the Kent State campus in Northern Ohio had been leaning to the political left that entire time and it was becoming a real problem. American youth were being taught in those places to think like communists and many of them never got over it. They are now a big part of the progressive left and are now running large media companies which has allowed the MSM to wholly be considered leftists organizations and a big part of the anti-Trump movement. For them a lot of what they know started in liberal universities like Kent State. It is disgusting that as Americans we have spent so much money on all these liberal colleges thinking them to be good things for our young people, only to find that they had a number one goal of liberalizing America for the sentiments of globalism. Those intentions clashed on that day in 1970 that Neil Young was singing about in his hippie song.

Even worse, American academia took their influence from Europe, which they never should have done, and decided to sell to their students this utopian idea that guns were not part of any society, and that the use of them by the National Guard in the case of Kent State was part of an authoritarian government that took up arms against its own people. Yet the colleges themselves were stoking the fires of communism in support of the spread of it across the entire Vietnamese peninsula. One of the biggest mistakes the United States ever made in the history of our young country was not to listen to General Claire Chennault at the end of World War II when he warned that the communists moving into China were more of a threat than the Japanese ever were. But nobody listened and communism ended up taking over all of China, and Korea then Vietnam. If communism had been stopped in 1948 in China, many lives would have been saved, but the American left wanted the spread of communism, so it paralyzed the American political system and we ended up with at least two bloody wars over the issue which killed many more people than some protesters at Kent State.

You see, there is always cause and effect. The American universities were guilty of allowing the spread of communism in America by radicals and attempting to hide that activity behind free speech protected under the American Constitution. Liberals have always been acting as Trojan Horses against American capitalism and using the sentiments of rule of law to hide their aggressions. Entertainers working on behalf of the political left soft sold those aggressions with hippie songs like that disgusting “Ohio” that Neil Young put together. And they are still using those same methods this time trying to tap into the leftists love of communism, socialism in pursuit of an anti-gun utopia. Liberals hate guns because it is the gun that has perpetuated American capitalism. Take the gun out of the culture of any society then leftists can have an unimpeded access to the minds of that portion of civilization. Liberals have never been about love, peace and sentiments of passivity, they are about cramming their vision of the world down everyone’s throats and they need everyone defenseless while they did it.

The National Guard panicked on the day of the Kent State Massacre. They should have never fired shots into the crowd. These days the protestors at Kent State were mild compared to some of the losers like ANTIFA that we have now. But back then in 1970 nobody really knew what to do with insurgents functioning on American soil and using the Constitution as a way to undo life in the United States. People should never have to die in protests, but then again, the colleges shouldn’t have been using their student body as soldiers for the spread of communism either, because that’s what America was fighting in Cambodia and Vietnam at that time. That was after spending a very costly war effort against North Korea in the previous decade. The battle was between the different political philosophies, capitalism against communism, and that is essentially what the battle of today is in what many consider a split America. Democrats want communism, they have just changed the name to progressivism, and Republicans generally want capitalism, although until Donald Trump came along, many didn’t really understand capitalism. American universities have left most people lacking a proper understanding of the economic power of capitalism leaving many weak on the subject, and susceptible to catchy songs by liberal artists like Neil Young. We all have an obligation to protect the American Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic and from the point of view from the National Guardsman, that’s what they were doing. The American press, which leaned to the political left because they had been trained at those same liberal universities of course chose to blame the violence on the National Guard.

And that brings us to the point of Neil Young’s updated video to that old song, the implication is that gun violence is out of control, especially in our schools and that if people want to see an end to it, that they need to vote out Pro NRA candidates. And this theme comes from one of the most liberal senators presently functioning who happens to come from Ohio, Sherrod Brown. During the many debates with his challenger Jim Renacci during this campaign season Brown tried to paint Renacci as a pawn of the gun lobby. Well, I am the gun lobby, and so are you dear reader if you are a member of the NRA. Of course, I expect politicians to listen to me from the power position of the NRA. I am part of what makes up that gun lobby through my membership dues and other things that I buy from them to help them fight away the corrosive influence of liberal senators like Sherrod Brown. If Neil Young had his way all of America would be run by liberals like Sherrod Brown and not conservatives like Jim Renacci. And they are so audacious to suggest that they had a big crowd at a Neil Young concert full of old pot smokers and communist sympathizers and think they have a right and obligation to continue making schools gun free zones, when it is the exact opposite for which the solution resides. But Trump gets bigger crowds than Neil Young and that is a real game changer for Republicans. For the first time they have someone who can actually sell conservative ideas back to people who need to hear it leaving old, fat slobs like Neil Young with nothing to do but sit in the forest, in the last house on that street and look at all the animals and redwoods and contemplate that America didn’t listen to their bullshit hippie talk. They voted for a red wave anyway and turned finally away from the communism the liberals have always dreamed of.

Why We are Lucky to be Able to Vote for George Lang: Issue 1, and the pro-crime Democrats

 

There are a number of reasons to vote for George Lang to keep the 52nd House seat that he currently holds in Columbus, Ohio. One of the most obvious is that George has an ambition to make Ohio one of the most business friendly states in the United States which says a lot considering some of the states in America and their relationships with business. George understands that economies are not grown from the middle out, but from the top down. The “middle class” that liberals are always talking about is created by jobs. Without jobs there isn’t anything for a middle class to do. I don’t even like the term “middle class” because it assumes that some people are under other people and that just isn’t the way humans think generally, but in politics it’s an established term that Democrats use to describe people they want to rule over. George Lang is one of the few people I know who truly understands this relationship between people and business, and he is ambitious to allow business development to improve the lives of everyone around them. If it was only for George Lang’s pro-business stance, he would be the best person that you could hope to vote for anywhere in the country on November 6th 2018. I like a lot of people who are up for election this year, but nobody as much as George Lang. However, what really makes George special is his positions on firearm ownership, particularly Ohio’s need to have a stand your ground law.

Currently the way Ohio’s laws of confrontation are written they favor a duty to retreat in hostile situations which greatly favors the ambitions of the malicious. If the intentions of Ohio’s Issue 1 are added under the potential of the Democrat running for governor against Mike DeWine this is very dangerous for individual liberty for all Ohioans. Democrats under Issue 1 want to empty prisons and put criminals back on the streets, and obviously that will lead to more crime for which the people being threatened have a “duty to retreat.” That makes absolutely no sense, but as Ohio law is written now, and under the empowerment of liberalism, from RINO Republicans like John Kasich and extreme liberals like Sherrod Brown Democrats are poised to really make Ohio a dangerous place, due to the intent behind the legislation they support. Like their poor economic theories of growth from the inside out which is completely foolish, Democrats believe that people can and should be reformed instead of separated from those who aspire toward value. The only way to make that relationship work is to bring down the value of everyone so that the criminal and social lunatics can have a seat at the table of society. Issue 1 assumes that the prison represents a value judgment for which Democrats resent, that criminals are a lower class of people as judged by other people. This is the same reason there are liberal “duty to retreat laws.” If you really get down to what a typical Democrat believes about guns and the potential of gun violence it is that using a gun to protect yourself or your property is reprehensible because it denies the desires of other people to share in what you have should they desire it. That is why essentially all Democrats are pro crime candidates, because they desire shared assets in society as opposed to protection of individual rights—in every circumstance.

People who look at my Instagram page, and my many other social media platforms might refer to me as a gun nut, which I am a long way from being. If the news did cover me in a story, they would say that I have an obsession with guns, which from their perspective is a very dirty thing. But truly I see guns as a huge philosophic achievement in the context of human existence. Their invention and implementation on a personal basis have advanced society in tremendous ways and is the essential foundation to everything concerning law and order. Without personal ownership of firearms, America would not be the great country that it is. If you really peel back the layers of American society into what makes it great, it is personal gun ownership. Everything else trickles off that essential foundation, just like the basic economic theories of a pro-growth GDP, from the top down, guns ensure that laws are followed, and that laws are intended to protect personal property—not the property of the state, but the property of the individual.

When we talk about our nation being more divided than ever this is essentially what we are experiencing, the idea of state property and individual property. Democrats want the state to control all property and to issue out fairness whereas Republicans believe in the protection of individual property. That leaves the ambitious to outwork the lazy and some people ultimately own more property than others. Some who don’t want to work for their ownership of property rationalize that as criminals they can steal from others, which deep in their hearts is a very Democrat way of thinking, which is why Issue 1 is supported by extreme liberals like Richard Cordray and why Ohio generally has laws of confrontation that favor a “duty to retreat.”

That is why George Lang is such a great Ohio representative. He understands this basic philosophical premise which most people don’t. He’s not afraid to go into a gun store like the great one in Liberty Township, Ohio–Right 2 Arms (I buy most of my guns from them) and give a statement about his support of “stand your ground laws” which means that gun owners do not have an obligation to retreat in a conflict. It is at the point of implementation the best way to deal with criminal behavior and when criminals are contained, business owners are hungry to expand economic activity. One goes hand in hand with the other. It is not a coincidence that America has more guns in it than people. And it also has the greatest economy in the world with no country even coming in a close second—especially not communist China. When I promote guns in my social media it is not to show a love of power and the ability to inflict death, it is in support of the tool which makes economic expansion happen. Without the gun there would be no order in American society. In places around the world where guns are illegal in every case social behavior is greatly scaled back and the loss of ambition which naturally cascades off that mental aptitude destroys free enterprise and the hope of acquiring wealth through economic expansion and the entire country suffers. I’m thinking of England as I write this.

George Lang understands this complex relationship between personal firearms and business expansion, and as a state representative he will support both. If Ohio can manage to get a real Republican governor there is a real chance at getting “stand your ground laws” implemented in the near future. When gun owners and concealed carry holders do not have an obligation to retreat, criminals lose a great deal of their power and in Ohio, a state that actually is considering Issue 1 where criminals can be released from jail and thrown back into society to fulfil the insanity of Democrat thinking, the basic foundations of gun ownership are all that keep a pro-growth state economy a possibility for the future. That is one of the main reasons that George Lang is one of the best Republicans in the country that anybody could vote for and if you are in the 52nd House District on election day, you are very lucky indeed to have the ability to vote for him.

The World of the Living, and the Dead: Understanding what makes success and failure

I don’t think about it too much because honestly, I just live my life and try to have as much fun with it along the way. But I am also a very talented person, and a smart person so naturally I associate by default with people at all levels of society, and I enjoy it. Yet my entire life, liberal society—the part of our culture that has a certain agenda wrapped in what they call, “progressivism” has attempted to herd me into some place for which they control and I obviously have never cooperated. And their illusions of power have given them the sanctimonious lust to believe that they could edit events in my life in some dominating way. Personally, I may be one of the sanest people alive, and one of the most giving, but to liberal society I am an extreme outlaw as defined by them and that conflict has gone on all of my life, from my years as a little kid to the present, 50 years later. But lately things have been different, even more panicked from that liberal side. Lately liberals have been harassing important people who I know in an attempt to cause them to distance themselves from me in shame, which actually is a direct frustration that they have regarding their lack of power in the upcoming midterms. I understand that and I see many of these antics as the last attempt of a dying party to stay in power so they attack what they believe is the power behind the conservative movement, and they start with people like me who obviously feed a great deal of information and charisma to the base of the philosophy of conservatism. Not everyone needs to have a Fox News television show or a radio show like Rush Limbaugh. Because of all my talents such venues would be too limiting for me, so I do what I do in my own unique way and that’s never going to change, and is part of Making America Great Again. But before they are crushed out of existence I feel it appropriate to explain to them a few errors in their judgment just out of compassion.

The biggest mistake that liberals have made in their entire philosophy is that they believe that all things spring forth by group assimilation. Such as, if the group doesn’t acknowledge that you exist, that you don’t. I’ve never personally cared whether I was acknowledged for something that I do. It’s nice of course and is a show of respect from the recipients, but I’d do the things I do whether 100,000 people witnessed it, or if nobody did. If I were on the face of the moon with nobody around, I would do all the things I do everyday regardless, and that drives liberals crazy. The way that they herd people into various groups for which liberalism desires to control is by this basic assumption that humans need acknowledgment from other humans in order to conduct any behavior. While most people have been taught to respond to these liberal aspects of behavior, instinctively, they desire freedom from such intellectual controls. That is why Donald Trump can go to Florida and pack a 20,000-person arena night after night while Bernie Sanders could barely get 200 in the same venue.

The second is that even among the smartest and achievement-based people we have in American culture liberals want to believe that those people would never be who they were if not for some help in getting there. This is where my name has been brought up quite a lot lately, as the midterms have become closer and people pretty high up in the food chain have actually been threatened to disassociate themselves away from me with the implied fear that their power will be taken away if they don’t comply. But here’s the thing, people don’t make people great. Associating with other people doesn’t make a person powerful. What does is in what people can do for each other. If you are a person who has a lot to offer, people will love you. It doesn’t matter how much Google tries to censor you, it doesn’t matter how many idiots try to protest against your name, it doesn’t matter if the entire press of the city or the nation turns against you and tries to make you sound like some crazy person—but what does matter is if you can do things that other people value. Liberal society does not make or break people as they believe. Success is truly in the eye of the beholder and is clearly in their power to control. Donald Trump certainly understands this notion and he has undercut the mysticism that liberal society has functioned from for many hundreds of years. Trump knows that no matter what people say about you, that if you have something that people desire, they will rush to you even under a barrage of bullets to get to it. So to be successful, liberal society has no control over that and it drives them insane with hate. I learned that trait very early in my life and I knew that it was always a matter of time before someone like a Donald Trump came along to expose that weakness in liberal logic, and much to my joy it is happening now. When we talk about making America great again this essential individual trait is what we are discussing.

A lot of people who knew me many years ago wonder why I’m not working in Hollywood. When I was younger it’s really the only thing I professionally wanted to do. And I did have my stints in that town both as a writer and as a stuntman. Once I learned that Hollywood was really like a giant high school with all the power playing among peer groups that I always hated, I distanced myself from them. They certainly wanted what I had to offer. But I didn’t want what they had. So I went and did my own thing and was successful at other things. People with real talent don’t have to play the games socially that liberals propose. If you are good at things people can’t take that away from you. They can make it more difficult to find an audience but they can’t stop talent.

Ironically this is why the Make America Great Again movement is happening now, in 2018 as opposed to 2008 or 1998 or the year of my birth, 1968. Liberal society made its move against traditional America and they infested Hollywood, the media, academia, just about everything as far back as 1948 to be precise as China was taken over by communism and other global collectivists thought their time to shine had arrived, so they made their moves to herd all members of society into groups of their political design, and Americans being kind people sort of let things go on out of politeness. But once they figured out what was happening they started to take action. Now with the internet and the ability to speak without the censor of an editor of a major magazine or newspaper, people’s true thoughts are coming forward and they have found a voice behind Donald Trump. It’s not that Donald Trump is the leader of this movement, he’s simply the product of it and that’s what liberals just don’t understand. With online chat rooms, Instagram, and Twitter people have a voice that can get out. Of course, those internet companies that host those platforms are regretting the empowerment that they gave to individual voices, this wasn’t how things were supposed to go, but honestly, if they didn’t do it someone else would have.

So back to the original premise, there isn’t any amount of isolation that can be applied to a person like me to stop this process from going forward. By forcing people to distance themselves from me who greatly benefit from my relationship it won’t make me go away. People develop relationships with other people not out of loyalty or even a favor, they do so because of what the other person can do for them, whether it be just friendship or intellectual enrichment. Relationships aren’t determined by liberal society, they are built on individual achievement. A low life slouch will not have a relationship with a productive, loving individual because those two types of people are not compatible. They can’t be brought together artificially through liberal categorization. And neither can a successful person be separated by people who help their success, because it isn’t the rules of liberalism that makes people successful, its individual merit.

A note to those who want to think of me as a “fringe” person, nothing could be further from the truth. The definition of “fringe” again has been attempted to be defined by liberalism in the modern sense and it has failed miserably. Most people think the way I do about most things, which makes me very much the mainstream. What I say and do ultimately are the kinds of things most people find appealing and that is why no matter how much attempt is tossed in the direction to separate me from other people, they will never work because the mainstream sentiment exists between me and them, not liberalism and them. What liberalism is finally learning is much what the character Bruce Willis played in the Sixth Sense learned at the end of that movie, that all along he was dead. The movie wasn’t about him getting back to his loved ones, it was in the little boy helping him realize that he had died. And for liberals, their big moment is coming with the midterms. That is their sixth sense. Separating me from other people won’t change that reality because we are all in the world of the living. Liberalism however is already in the world of the dead. They just don’t know it yet.
