    We are looking at you, Zed. Run for President, I dare you.

    • JTC

      Zed *is* President, of a fashion. So are you. And me.

      Can we keep the Republic? Old Ben wasn’t so sure.

      Neither am I. The forces that seek to destroy and replace it are the strongest in our history. So I guess it’s up to Zed. And you. And me.

      • JSStryker

        and me.

      • Malatrope

        We’re a’tryin’…

    The Left wants blood. The question is what happens when they get it.

    • TomZ

      What always happens, they will want more.

    • JSStryker

      But the question is when we start giving them their blood will they still have the gumption to go looking for more?

      • Malatrope

        If it’s their own blood we’re giving back to them, I suppose it’s possible a few of them will stop looking.

    We need to go to a variation of the voting demographic of colonial and early founding days. Free men and women, who have their own houses, land and/or business. No one on welfare. No students (usually equates with welfare). But until there is the CW2, all I can do is dream.

    • JSStryker

      Will that include those that have served their country?

      • DASTARDLY DAN

        You’ll have to define that to exclude civil service and career politicians

    • MasterDiver

      Civilians and Citizens, like in Heinlein’s Starship Troopers.

      Zar Belk!

      • Grunt GI

        HA! I agree 1000%….or my other plan is a variation of the old Colonial Slogan–“No Taxation without Representation!”

        I would turn that on it’s head and say, “NO Representation without Taxation!” If you aren’t at least paying payroll taxes (meaning you have a job!) then you should not be able to vote yourself goodies paid by those of us who do work.

        Better yet, if you aren’t making enough to be paying income tax you probably shouldn’t vote.

        That should eliminate the professional students and welfare mooches. AND of course you should have to provide proof of citizenship.

          When the Founders created the Senate is was meant to cool the passions of the House and thus the excitable greedy mob. The 17th Amendment foiled that wisdom by giving the Senate over to the excitable greedy mob with only a slight delay.
          Now “Taxation without Representation” is carried out through perpetual debt, guaranteeing that even the unborn will be burdened with taxes they had no say in.
          My, and others, solution is to repeal the 17th Amendment and replace it with a vote by tax proxy, that is the more tax you pay the greater your vote for a Senator.
          Naturally, that will put the super rich in a bind. Do they keep their money or pay taxes and get more influence that way? Meanwhile the taxpayers get a chance to cut their burden by cutting spending, an option not available now with the Big Spenders dominating the process.

        • Odgreen

          I have a better idea, stay the hell out of my pockets. Import tariffs are ok by me, hell, I hate, but would pay, a reasonable sales tax (but not on food), but when somebody wants to get into my wallet for taxes (out of my livelyhood by common right) that aren’t voluntary, my neck hairs bristle. That’s how we got in the mess we’re in now.

        • Deplorable B Woodman

          Grunt,
          “No Representation without Taxation”.
          I like it. Short, sweet, succinct, and so simple, even a Libtard can understand it. Especially when they’re turned away at the voting booth.

        • armedandsafe

          “Better yet, if you aren’t making enough to be paying income tax you probably shouldn’t vote.”
          I paid payroll taxes for the first time in 1958. I have paid such taxes steadily ever since. Today, I don’t make enough to be taxed on the little I get back of what I paid in. SO, my right to vote is now cancelled?

      • LOVE IT!

    • Exactly so. Exactly.

  • Kafiroon

    Waters, Pelosi, Ryan and McConnell think they do.
    Hillery believes she does.

  • Dienekes

    Tom Paine’s pamphlet, “Common Sense” had some things to say about that…

  • NotYetInACamp

    That is a deep state of a question.

    We have a short reprieve.
    Chains being removed from the economy and from people.
    (Chains being clamped over the mouths engaging in free speech by leftist corporations)
    Jobs up by a million. Corporations returning some production to the USA.
    (Trade alliances attempting to stop us.)
    Stock market advances from even the bubble it had as the likelihood of making profit increases.
    (FED has raised rates to cool economy. May stop bond purchases. Central Banks desire USA stiomped into ground. Central Bankers plan economic crash and world currency may eventually evolve.)
    Invasion across borders is down almost 80% – Trump at Phoenix rally from ICE.
    (Senator Chuck Schumer demands Trump stop election assurance investigation, AND challenges Trump to let illegals vote to show that Trump is not a “White Supremacist.” La Raza supporter DNC Chairman Perez joins Schumer’s chorus)
    And more.

    The future belongs to us. It is our chance. We can recapture what we had and thrive even further than before.

    We will make America strong again, wealthy again, proud again, safe again, and we will Make America Great Again.

    The impetus is again in our court, which is where it was when we elected Donald Joseph Trump as our President.

    • Norm

      Is this Donald Joseph Trump any relation to Donald John Trump?

      • NotYetInACamp

        OK. This is the second time I have made that switch. I must not use his middle name. Only his middle initial. Maybe he should change his name to accommodate me?

  • NotYetInACamp

    Oh, yeah. that demographic is both villianized, and demanded to save everyone, and produce enough for all to use, no matter who wins an election. No matter how many chains have been placed on the demographic, or how many times the whip has been applied.
    Heck. I John Galt-ed it for a while. In many ways I still do. I still do not produce wealth for others. I just assist in legally changing the world and the results of elections. (without freaking compensation. It does not fill the stomach or pay the taxes)

  • Saw it above, where once upon a time you had to be a land/property owner to vote. Think of that, and see why the left fought so hard for it to be one and all. At least they haven’t destroyed the electoral college concept.

    • DASTARDLY DAN

      The modern day equivalent of land/property owner would be ‘PRODUCER’

      • MasterDiver

        I fear the day the Parasites outnumber the Producers is fast approaching. Thank you, Lyndon Baines Johnson (may you rot in Hell!)

    Ran across this.
    It makes me wonder just who is in charge.

    He continued until his conscience reengaged and broke his mental freezer, he says.
    Speaks of high level banking and finance and who has power in the world.
    Much information above my pay grade there, if true, or even if distraction. Read around what sounds outlandish. Listen for what you know. Add to your knowledge. Ignore the rest.

    Will they crash us just to destroy our power? They cannot let the ants unite like we are doing here.
    Rumor have this guy dead. But who knows? Is this real? Or a false rabbit hole?

      • JSStryker

        Correction the man in NYIC’s post is still alive. I apologize for passing on bogus information. 🙁

  • Halley

    In my experience, there is nothing a “progressive” resents, loathes, and gets rabid over more than being exposed. Exposed as in “good intentions” about “helping people” revealed as bad intentions about hurting people. They absolutely cannot tolerate their cover being blown, and it seems the last election did just that (what? we can’t run an utterly corrupt anti-American seizure-prone drunk rape-enabling felon for POTUS?!), and they want their revenge. On the other hand, Sam and Jan and Naomi and Skye can gladly expose themselves as much as possible.

    I didn’t think you could depict Sam any sexier….my bad….well done….

    • Grunt GI

      I keep waiting for one or both of those dresses to fall off?
      More tequila perhaps?

  • Pamela

    Zed’s Manspreading! *Squee*

    The fastest way to stop the spread of “parasites” is making sure there is no place for them to take hold. No fertile ground. No host to leech from.

  • Spin Drift

    Just an observation from the weekend. The courts decided against the Bernie supports that sued to get their contributions back from the rigged primary. The court sided with the DNC and said that they had the right to rig their own primary. Think about that, the DNC has pulled the curtain back on themselves. Spread the word to your Democratic friends that they may want to find a party that lets the people decide who represents them not their supposed betters. This was buried on Saturday and is not being picked up by the MSM.

    What happened to the Kennedy Democrats?

    • NotYetInACamp

      Our Republican Party did not LET the people decide. The PEOPLE SHOVED it down the Republican Party’s throat when the party was working to place Cruz into the nomination by appointing Cruz delegates when Trump was winning primaries and closing in to having enough delegates to win. The people were about to start tearing off establishment Republicans heads and mounting them on pikes on the Tower Walls.
      I suppose that the Second Amendment comes into play when the Party denies the will of the voters. That decision leaves no other options.
      And I used to talk with the the judge socially at alumni gatherings in the past. I only read enough of the decision to get me disgusted that he considered the law to be that. I will have to read it all.
      But also recall that the Supreme Court said in a decision that political speech was protected when people were lying.

      The Kennedy Democrats are all Republicans and Libertarians now.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Edit – Add and independents.

        • JTC

          Edit edit — The Kennedy Democrats, Real Republicans, and Libertarians are all defacto independents and (l)ibertarians and pragmatics now…note all of those latter are non-aligned with any “party” but the deplorable one.

      • Spin Drift

        I don’t like to be told what to do, ever. I’ve quit high paying jobs over the concept. The fact that the GOPe was stopped was/is good. I voted for Ted in the AL primary but am duly satisfied with Trump. Now how to do we get the sheeple on both sides to resist the overlords? Any ideas? My local discussion tribe is liking Kascich as a primary challenger to Trump. (I think they are idiots) Has the Deep State sufficiently gelded Trump with the Kelly appointment? Or is their additional game/s afoot?

          Trump has done so much in these 8 months while carrying chains that would stop even Marley. And Trump is the good guy. I hope Sessions replacement in Alabama is the “10 Commandments Judge” (former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice).
          The Justice placed first in the Republican primary ahead of the Republican Establishment candidate who is endorsed by Mitch McConnell and all the usual suspects, and Trump as a means to make nice with McConnell.
          So. A vote against the candidate that President Trump endorsed (under Establishment pressure) is a vote for Trump.

          Now who’s in charge? Confusing? Isn’t it?

          • JTC

            I think it was something like that in AZ too…DT offered supportfor that Flake to appease McCain’t, and look what that got him.

            He’s now behind Kelly A. where he should have been to start with…if he expects loyalty he has to give it even in cases where it is not politically expedient; that’s why we put him in the big chair.

            From your story it looks like he hasn’t quite learned that lesson well enough. The Donald ain’t perfect.

  • Arkelk

    In a Nevil Shute novel (sorry, don’t remember which one), he has a situation with a multiple vote system. As I recall, everyone got the basic vote, and then there were additional votes for certain achievements, like graduating high school. I think being in the military got one vote as well. (The seventh vote, the last possible, was an award of the Queen.)

    If it weren’t so subject to manipulation, it could be interesting: basic vote, high school graduation, property/business owner (to include a certain amount of stock), military/first responder.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Reference Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers where one had to have served in the military to be a citizen and have earned the right to vote.

    • Pamela

      Look at the date stamps. How many weapons were funneled under Obama’s tenure in office? How much money outside of the known amount right before he left office? How many Obama/Clinton Era programs are still going on that need to be curtailed? That’s what needs to be stopped and right now.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Ah. An American for American ideals and goals. We need that type of inquiry. But Foggy Bottom is still almost completely The Swamp. The battle has barely begun. I wish that sort of activity was stopped right now. We need more Americans in government.

  • Grunt GI

    Chris,
    I hate to waste valuable comment space…..but it appears the US FRACKING POST OFFICE has lost my contribution letter. Which was sent certified mail….bastards.

    So, I will be saving up to send it again, unless by some miracle the idiot mailman SOMEWHERE between Orlando and your PO Box finds the things. This really pisses me off, I have NEVER had this much trouble getting something sent through the mail.

    And these morons on the left want to have government run health care….WTF???

      • JTC

        BTW, UPS ground is one-day delivery anywhere in the state, about the price of priority mail and cheaper than certified…small parcels back and forth from Sebring to son in Palm Beach is about seven bucks, and trackable all the way.

        • Grunt GI

          Thanks…I have to check..not sure if UPS delivers to PO Box, which Chris has.

          • JTC

            Oh yeah, you are right, they don’t…missed that. Hell you could drive it over there and treat our crippled artist to a cold one!?

    • Chris Muir

      save it for next year,Grunt!

      • Grunt GI

        Oh, don’t worry I’ll get it to you…now I’m pissed and it’s a matter of keeping my word. So keep an eye on that PO Box…it will be there…

        AND, please, more swimming hole….

        🙂

          ” AND, please, more swimming hole…. ”
