2018 Midterm Election Results and Projections

“The midterms marked another milestone on America’s comeback trail,” said Carl Gottstein, life member and Assistant Manager at New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. “By increasing the GOP hold on the US Senate while democrats were grasping for the lower house, the movement has won another important victory: locking in Trump’s ability to seat judges and protecting him from impeachment.”

Militia Understanding: The journey continues

Still one could make the argument that it was a different time back then, that things are more established and we have “official” government roles created which have made the need for a militia obsolete. But I really wonder, what actually happened to the idea of the militia? If in the late 1700s, every man was the militia, every man held the honor and responsibility that came from being the nation’s defenders. why didn’t that concept stand the test of time? What happened as our country moved from a frontier country to the forefront of civilization? If every man was the militia, why isn’t that still true for you or I?

Sheepdogs-Protection from the Wolves

We live in a country with declining morals, sadly, and multiple issues with mental health, domestic violence, and a general angst (which is derived from the word anxiety). I work in Portland Oregon and I can tell you I do not allow my family to do any business there. It breaks my heart because it (used to be) a great city. Many of the bad actors you see around the country only need one excuse in their mind and you have a breaking news story at your place of worship. This can include a disgruntled member, a spouse who just got served papers (more on that in a bit), or any other person who is not thinking rationally and without a moral compass. So what can be done … one word: SHEEPDOG.

Mid-Term Elections-We Didn’t Win, Now What?

So, we got knocked down.  We can choose to let it defeat us and give up or we can get up and act.  Complaining does nothing and only serves the oppositions interests.  Because if your complaining your not acting.  If you are not acting you are not gaining support for your cause.  So, let’s stop with the threats and pull ourselves up and start acting to change our results.

Second Amendment Analysis

Our country is facing a Constitutional crisis that is putting everyone in jeopardy. There is a movement underway in this nation to disregard the second amendment. This movement is attempting to pressure our law makers in to denying American citizens their rights. I find this very troubling and frankly it scares the hell out of me. If successful with denying this right I wonder what right will go next.

A New Perspective

My goal is to provide insight from the new side, from the beginning. If you are new, don’t know where to start, and find the gun guys a bit intimidating in their enthusiasm, come hang out over here. Or maybe you have been a lifelong member of the community and someone new to join has you a bit frustrated. Keep reading and see if it helps you take a step back to understand what they are going through. We can always benefit from a new perspective.

Elections Have Consequences

It’s been called the most important Mid-Term Election of our lifetime. Perhaps that’s an exaggeration, but one thing is clear, Democrats were desperate to wrest control of Congress away from the Republicans as part of their relentless campaign of “resisting and distorting” every action or reaction, taken by the Trump administration.  Their desperation was vividly made evident by their underhanded political tactics!
