Recently I was again asked how bad it would have to get before the “woke” awakened.
Let us take a quick look and see if we can figure this out together.
According to “polls” across America the citizenry is tiring of rising crime, gas prices, and losing or “loosing” Democracy as Liberals enjoy opining.
Is this true?
Well. . . .
This depends where in these United States one resides.
The majority of people in Texas, Florida, South Dakota et al. are indeed tired of the first two, and hopefully know there is no chance of losing Democracy, as you cannot lose something you’ve thankfully never had.
The United States is a Constitutional Republic.
The Founders weren’t interested in Democracy.
They wanted individual Freedom.
As stated earlier most people in the aforementioned States will vote to support Liberty and stop the Liberals.
On the other hand New York (City) is trying to allow criminal foreign nationals (illegals) to vote, not that this is any different from the last few elections.
In California most citizens won’t vote at all.
As we can see it depends where you call home.
Inexpensive fuel, good jobs, border security, and support of law enforcement will vote straight ticket Red.
Fuel shortages, food stamps, one big North American wasteland and “Pigs in a blanket fry em like bacon” will vote straight ticket Blue.
There will be a few who “split the ticket” simply because they think they are “nuanced” and smarter than everyone else.
With all this happening a story written by “Yahoo News” was published about the Gubernatorial election in the State of Oregon with the catch line, “Oregon may be on the verge of electing its first Republican governor in a generation next month.”
The article continues, “It would be a heavy blow for Democrats, an indictment of the party’s brand in what has been one of the most progressive states in the country. Portland, its largest city, has been an epicenter of left-wing activism in support of causes like defunding the police and drug decriminalization, but by all accounts, Portland is struggling. Crime is up, the city is facing a homelessness crisis and residents are worried.”
You don’t say?
Wait it gets better.
The writer continues, “Things are so bad, in fact, that some of the state’s left-leaning voters might support a Republican candidate for governor this November. “There’s just a huge feeling of lawlessness,” a Portland resident told the Oregonian this week.”
I love the word “might”.
Things are a disaster in Portland.
Urine, feces, needles everywhere. Graffiti, rape, and murder as the Summer of Love moved in year round and the “left leaning voters” MIGHT try something new but let us get back to the article.
There’s no doubt that things in Portland and around much of the state are grim. More than two-thirds of residents think Oregon is on the wrong track and Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is the most unpopular state executive in the country, with a 54% disapproval rating,”
Hang on. . .there’s more.
“The murder rate is on pace to break another record, after 2021 set a new one. Last weekend, four Portland people were killed in separate incidents, two by shootings and two by stabbings involving homeless persons. One of the stabbings occurred in the Old Town neighborhood around lunchtime.”
Okay my friends.
This is a lot to unpack.
Murder continues to break records, two-thirds think things are going in the wrong direction, and 54% hate the current Lib governor not to mention one of the murders happened in the “Old Town neighborhood around lunchtime”.
Don’t these animals know “lunchtime” is sacred in Old Town!
Allow me a moment to compose myself but “lunchtime” happened to be my first meal today and I cannot imagine having to defend myself from a murderer at noon.
Breakfast or dinner is fine but don’t mess with Oregonian Old Town’s mid day meal.
Believe it or not the article gets better as it lauds the Democratic candidate Tina Kotek, the same Democratic candidate who has been in Oregon politics for years, with “her” plan to help the homeless situation, the same plan that’s causing all the madness, by stating, “Kotek was a religious studies major in college and has a background in humanitarian causes. She worked for the Oregon Food Bank in the late 1990s, and then for a group called Children First for Oregon.”
Well now that should do it!
A religious studies major who undoubtedly hates God with a background in humanitarian causes while creating and overseeing a humanitarian crises for the last decade.
She also worked for the Oregon Food Bank in the 90’s and then a group called Children First for Oregon.
I doubt if either of those “organizations” are what they are implying but even so it appears she learned nothing as the homeless search for food (be careful at lunchtime) and the children are noticeably in last place.
Undoubtedly you want to know how far ahead is the Republican.
With all that Progressivism the Republican is up one point and the only reason this is occurring is another “independent” (See Liberal) candidate is pulling votes from the Dem, otherwise the Dem would be up by twenty but don’t take my word for it.
I’ll give you a quote from an Oregonian.
“I’m a born, raised, and resident of Oregon. Oregon is comprised of more than Portland. The Oregonian is a Portland-based newspaper. I can guarantee they are skewing the narrative to trying to equate Portland as Oregon. I live in OR, there’s no chance we’re electing a republican governor – maybe folks in Portland have lost their minds and no longer care about civil rights, but the rest of the valley certainly does.”
Please allow me to decode.
I’m a born, raised, and resident of Oregon. There’s no chance we’re electing a republican governor because we care about our civil rights.
In other words, we want abortions, the safety of children be damned.
In the beginning I referenced a question to me about how bad would things have to get before change occurred.
As you can see from above dramatically worse than where we are now.
Factoring in the economy, crime, food, electricity and of course the stock markets, in my opinion we are barely through the 1st inning.
Stretch those legs and pick out a quality bat.
You are going to need them especially at lunch.
