I hope I am not the only conservative who has endured eight year of Obama and now afraid of what is known as the Republican Party. I often wonder and would love if anyone older than my nearly 87 years has ever read my articles? I do have two friends older that do read my work and both agree with my political conservatism 100%. We have a great advantage as we have witnessed politics in America for a very long time. I have never discussed with my two older friends if they have always been conservatives. If so they, like myself, were Democrats when they were young men. We don’t need a history book as we have watched the Democratic party change from being the conservative leader to the now 100% socialist party of “NO”. In the south we watched the Republican Party grow from no one to the majority Party in less than one decade.
My grandfather was the Democratic County Clerk of Palo Pinto County Texas when I was a boy. He was active in the Democratic party during the 1920′, 1930’s and early 1940’s. He was defeated after WWII and died at 70 in 1949. He was my idol and had a great impact on my life as he, like the Democratic party were staunch conservatives. I was 19 when he died and had been in the US Navy for nearly two years. I had never voted when he died as you were not considered an adult until you were 21. One thing is certain after having 7 children and 14 of my 15 grand children reach 21, maturity or adulthood is not measured by age. I have one 65 who has questionable political maturity and others were mature before they were 18. Allowing anyone to vote should require a written test just like a driver’s license. Anyone who can’t read or has questionable mentality should never be allowed to vote.
My first vote in any election was in 1952 for Dwight Eisenhower for President. Without a doubt most statewide and local votes were for Democrats who were conservatives at that time. I have voted for Democrats in my Texas County of Sabine as late as 2008 as locally you had to be a Democrat to win an election. The ones in elected office were conservatives but things in East Texas and many other places in the south had not recognized the switch at the local level
I have been allowed to vote for 65 years now and watching the Congressional, Judicial and Executive branches elevate themselves to an “Elite” status has been troubling. Now we have more than the upper level of government employees having status far beyond the average American. We have gone from only the President from having a private airplane to lower than Cabinet level government employees demanding elevated status. I remember when Harry Truman left office he drove his own car back to Missouri. Our government is more than a swamp and unless you are blind and deaf you can see how powerful the employees have become and are using every possible way to dump Trump. Now we even have treason used with little concern of the media to reveal top-secret documents. I had a top-secret security clearance for several years and abridging this privilege would have still seen me in prison. I will guarantee that some of these idiots leaking information were not subjected to the vetting process I went through. These irresponsible people who commit treason do not deserve to be American citizens.
Now, and again after waiting eight years to see the Republicans gain the majority in all three branches of government, they have become the enemy of the people. Watching Rand Paul, Susan Collins and a revolving group of face-time Congressional Representatives and Senators play politics with an issue so critical for the people is sickening. These same “Elites” have bitched, campaigned against, spent eight years hammering the Democrats every time they could beg to get interviewed to repeal Obamacare. Now that they have the power to kill the “Snake” that has created the biggest increase in insurance costs, erased forever the benefit of healthcare as a tax-free incentive working people and made billions for the insurance industry, they decided to fight each other.
In less than a year the Republicans have given away their leadership role to the Democrats who just sit back and watched the “Elephant Roast” make the Republicans look like buffoons they must be. I get a request for donations every day from the Republican Party. I will not help pay to watch the continued war among themselves. I get articles and listen to the pundits on Fox News try to wake these morons up with no success.
Obama shoved his healthcare plan that he knew would bankrupt America after he left office and at least the Democrats did not slay each other. Now we watch our elected Repulsivecan saviors enter the bullfight to save us and watch them decide to fight each other. The Bull just went up into the stands to watch the slaughter. I hope Trump can drain the swamp alone as these idiots will be of no help. C Brewer
Watching the destruction of property by anarchists these past two weeks is unbelievable in America. Lawlessness by both mobs and individuals is against the laws of this land. The recent activity in Berkeley California was especially sickening. Watch the destruction of property by a group of thugs with mask was just being observed by the police who never did anything to stop this was sickening.
Apparently the people of California have adopted the need to destroy public and private property and succeed from the United States. As one old man 86 years old I hope they are successful. They have elected a group of politicians who are as dumb as a sack of rocks.
What a pleasure it would be to watch Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein the cream of California’s dissidents have to return home to the “Land of Fruit and Nuts”. Let these Progressives go to Hollywood and sell their acts to movie makers. They have more face time on the “Leftmedia”( a new word to better describe ) ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and PBS than all of the “true” conservatives combined. I used the word “true” as there are more Progressive RINO’s on the “Leftmedia” attacking Trump than Demoncrats on certain days. I am sick of McCain, Graham, Murkowski and Collins openly trying to split the Republicans in Congress.
When we have the supposedly Leaders in Congress openly urging these dissident idiots, most paid to destroy by Soros, to disrupt, destroy, attack and kill or maim other Americans. Folks this is “Anarchy” not freedom of speech or right to assemble it is against every law of the land and must be stopped. If the “Leftmedia” and even Fox News would refuse to report this mayhem it would be stopped immediately by law enforcement. The media and people like the ACLU have made enforcing the law more the focus of criticism than the idiots that have become anarchist. To make sure I don’t ignore the real trainers of our anarchist youth let me travel back to the 60’s and the likes of the Clinton’s during the Viet Nam war. The tenured professors in all major colleges and universities have openly created this growing army of brainwashed youth.
If the Progressives, Demoncrats, RINO’s, ACLU and the “American Anarchist Army” continue this use of mass destruction no one will ever save our Republic. The people have spoken and given Donald Trump the power to stop the race to Socialize America. Now we have several Liberal Federal Judges join the battle to support the mayhem and safety of the people by stopping every action Trump will try to do to restore safety and order. Sadly we have a Political Supreme Court sit on their robed asses and do nothing as they are deadlocked 4 to 4 and useless.
One thing Trump, Congress, the courts and the three million lobbyist have not mentioned so far is our spoiled, under-educated, brainwashed and poorly parented young who carry out the anarchism. To my knowledge only one free country in the world, Israel, has used common sense and what most of our enemies employ to eliminate this senseless and destructive violence. These countries have adjusted for the lack of parental training and the courage of their youth to ignore tenured professors. The simple solution is mandatory military service for at least six months at 18 whether they graduate from High school or drop out.
I can imagine how the ACLU, the “Leftmedia” and the Political left-leaning Federal Judges would explode should this common sense solution were proposed. I would love to see Trump sign an Executive Order for this immediately and watch the games begin.
It is sad to watch so many Americans get worked up, paid to destroy property, block traffic, and challenge law enforcement who try to do their job because Trump tries to stop the flow of eventual terrorism with a ban on certain Muslims. He will be challenged even more when he starts to send the army of illegal Hispanics who are draining our resources with free medical, free food, free housing, etc.
What really bothers this old American is that Congress, the Supreme Court, the ACLU, misguided youth, college professors and especially the “Leftmedia” and even FOX News only have consistent concerns for immigrants’ rights. None of the these misguided “Turkeys” have any concern for the millions of real American veteran who are homeless, untreated mistreated by the VA and forgotten heroes who served and fought for their right to protest.
Oops, I forgot we do have a few leaders who have been motivated to care by our new President Trump who will help the veterans get rights at least equal to illegals. That is if the Demoncrats led by Chuck Schumer will get off their asses and help.
I have one question should any other concerned American read this article. Do you agree or disagree with me? If you disagree and can write, please correct me with facts, not feelings.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR THESE HYPOCRITES.
My old friend Jack Peck sent me these facts that just prove how much wealth politicians can amass in their government jobs. This writer who is black choose to use Democrats to make his points and I feel they are the greediest but they are all suspected crooks. It would be nice if we had a law that required every elected politician to make available to the public their current IRS accepted net worth before they are sworn in. Then they would have to make public their latest audited net worth when they leave office. If the net worth was greater when they left office they would be required to justify how the gain was achieved. C Brewer

As they prepare for their exodus from the White House, the Obamas are about to join another rarified club that of the ruling liberal elite class owning multiple ultra-expensive homes in highly exclusive communities that none in America can afford save the one-percenters. The very same one-percenters whom they rant and rail against as being the greedy, ego-centric millionaires who simply have too much.
Following the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton who (despite Hillary’s claim earlier this year that they left White House dead broke) somehow managed to educate their daughter at Stanford, Oxford, NYU and Columbia; acquire a $1.7 million estate in Chappaqua and a $2.85 million mansion in Georgetown) and Bernie Sanders who shortly after ending his 2016 presidential bid bought his third home a $600,000 lakefront vacation house on Lake Champlain. Barack and Michelle have real estate designs of their own.
Earlier this year it was revealed that upon his leaving the presidency the Obamas will not be returning to Chicago they will instead be moving into a $6 million, 8,200-square foot, 9-bedroom 12-bathroom mansion in Kalorama, one of the District’s most posh, desirable and exclusive neighborhoods in the heart of one of America’s wealthiest zip codes.
With daughter Malia off to college that leaves just Barack, Michelle and Sasha until the younger daughter graduates high school in 2018. Nothing says I care about climate change, energy consumption and our CO2 footprint re than keeping an 8,200-square foot house heated and air conditioned year round for just three people. The hypocrisy and do as I say not as I do hubris of all these wealthy climate change proponents is sickening.
By the way, the Obama’s new home is just two doors down from Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta, who recently lost the most significant campaign of his life. But that’s not the new news. We have now learned Barack and Michelle are the proud owners of yet another home, this one on the Left Coast .As reported by Page Six and other sources, the Obamas have a new home in Rancho Mirage, California. Rancho Mirage is a popular golf getaway which would explain its attraction to the soon-to-be ex-golfer-in-chief. By some counts this makes the Obama’s fifth home. Also from Page Six, The Obamas are also said to have bought a holiday getaway in Obama’s childhood home state of Hawaii. How many American families own five of anything, let alone houses? Let alone houses in Hawaii that they see once a year or so. Most of us are blessed if able to rent a hotel room or condo on Hawaii once a decade.
The relocation habits of Democrats leaving office is very interesting. For example; having been voted out of office in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu didn’t return to Louisiana. She instead made her 7,300-square foot $2.5 million Washington DC mansion her new home. Rather than returning to Little Rock, when Bill and Hill left the White House they chose the liberal, ultra-wealthy haven of Chappaqua New York with its average household income of $285,801 and average household net worth of $1,564,366 for their new residence.
Now it’s the Obama’s turn. Are they going back to Chicago to live amongst the little people and take their chances becoming yet another statistic (total number shot as of this writing this year: 3,961)? No, not so much.
They, like the others, are moving into a private, secured community to live in a house big enough for five families where they will host cocktail parties for golf buddies and other millionaire and billionaire friends.
Yet like the Sanders, Landrieus and Clintons of the world, they will accept exorbitant five-, six-, even seven-figure speaking fees to give speeches about how the rich in our country are steadily pulling away from everyone else and increasingly isolating themselves. About how the concentration of wealth at the top is allowing some Americans to own multiple houses, vacation when and as they please and live lives most of the rest of the country cannot fathom. They’ll blather on and on about how the rich are a big part of the problems in our country. END
The creation of this new elite class of greedy Americans that have rights far beyond the rest of us is wrong. I pray that our new President, for all of the people, will eliminate this elite class of politicians from having special rights. All Americans should have equal rights as our Constitution and Bill of Rights provide. If the laws applied to these elites the Obama’s, Clinton’s, Sander’s, Bush’s and thousands more would be in jail. Unfortunately if us plain folks made money the same way the politicians do we would be in prison.
Sitting here writing this article I was thinking about the task of preparing the necessary information required to be sent to my CPA to prepare my 2016 tax filing. I have a Master’s Degree in Business and there is no way I could possibly fill out the some 50 pages of information required by the IRS each year. I am 86 years old and worked hard for 50 years saving enough to supplement our Federal Entitlement payment that I started paying into when I was eight years old in 1938. I have Neuropathy in both feet and lower legs, bone on bone problems in both knees. I have high blood pressure, severe water retention problems, sleep apnea and take about 25 total pills at 5 different times of the day. My memory is waning and I use notes and an Amazon Echo to help me remember things like I have a dental appointment next Tuesday, I saw the doctor this week, I have blood work week after next and I also help my wife of 56 years remember her requirements.
If I went out and shot a Democratic politician in the butt, plead guilty to save a trial, they would let me go to prison in East Texas close to where I live because I did not kill him. No more income tax filing, paying for my medicine, good doctors, groceries, and even TV. I would have doctors far better than at the VA as I served nearly 5 years in the US Navy starting at age 17. I am too old to drink, don’t smoke, can’t walk long distances and if you ever reach 86 you will find out there are many more things you used to do that are now impossible. My kids would no longer feel guilty for not visiting much anymore. When I croaked my family would not have to pay to cremate or bury me and my wife might have enough money left to pass on to our kids?
I only used this scenario to make a point as I would never want to ever be away from my partner and wife, Norma, for 56 years. Another misconception I used was I would never find a Democratic politician in East Texas and my legs would not let me drive to Austin, Dallas or Houston where all of the Democrats live in Texas.

I hope and pray my grandchildren have the opportunity to read about America the Beautiful someday. Watching the self-destruction of the greatest country ever born has been painful. People my age and a few older that are still alive will be the last people who witnessed this greatness. History that used to be a record of accuracy has been replaced.
Today we read about events that have been selectively altered to reflect a political ideology desired by those in power. What makes it worse is a media that publishes whatever will provide the biggest payoff to print and present politics to the folks. America will not likely ever see another Ernie Pyle and other actual reporters of his ilk ever again? This erosion of honesty did not begin this year. Phony news reporters have been exposed in my lifetime but just like crooked politicians there exploits are usually buried forever. We stopped recording these events in history books as we no longer teach history in schools.
I feel certain that both Clinton’s wish this disdain for facts did not cover their early days of mischief. I imagine they have paid dearly to protect much of their early misgivings and must be extremely jealous that President Obama is still getting a free ride. The media secrecy to protect Obama’s past has to be expensive to those who manipulate him like a puppet. We will someday find out who had this power but far too late to expose the charade.
Not enough Americans have really cared in recent years to watch this transition from honesty to power in our political process. Being a native Texan and having seen Lyndon Johnson buy a seat in the Senate and uniquely ascending to the Presidency was never recorded in his lifetime and likely will never be as history is no longer educational. It will reappear someday if Americans ever get enough free stuff or when the well runs dry of living off of someone else’s money. That day will happen and this will be the fatal blow that killed the middle class American. The ultra rich and the politically established “Elites” will rule and the government will then even tell you when you can have sex.
Folks Americans have one last chance to upset the “Elites” and the ultra rich from dominance that could introduce a “Royalty” status next. Laugh if you must but hopefully you will remember some of us tried to get your attention with warnings. The unusual part of this opportunity is one of the “Ultra Rich”, Donald Trump, has chosen to try to be the leader of hopefully enough Americans smart enough to listen. Even Reagan did not do enough to drain the Washington swamp of the Progressives or stop the media propaganda machine.
There is no difference in the Bushes and the Clinton’s as both families are Progressives. Some of the other rebels like John Kasich and Ted Cruz are just power-hungry dupes that are used by the “Elites” as sacrificial lambs too dumb to even know how they were deceived. All these rebels have achieved is to kill the Republican Party”. This will remove the last roadblock and allow the Progressives total control of every facet of Americans lives.
You folks like “Black Lives Matter” and the other splinter groups supported by the Progressive media will be the ones hurt the most and don’t even have a clue on how you have been manipulated. When you have to dig ditches and sweat for a living a few years you will again understand how free you once were. A few will succeed and Uncle Tom will reappear but history will ignore this one.
Trump may be a wolf in sheep’s clothing folks but at least he has promised to square things up maybe one last time. Any American who believes their life will be better with the Clinton’s again have been smoking peyote or sniffing Mexican drugs. Ask yourself why Hillary, at 69, wants to be President. Do you really think she cares about the Average American when she sacrificed a diplomat to keep from exposing a chance to fatten the “Foundation”? If you believe this I will sell you the entire State of Illinois for $5, including a Deed.
I am a well-educated and successful American who has lived during the best years in American history. I am 86 and likely will be forgotten before too many more years. If Hillary does win I promise not to even consider moving from East Texas. I still love and remember the salad days of America and they cannot be erased from my memory like the powerful erase them from history. I will never forget my efforts to share my thoughts, beliefs and advice with nothing expected but respect for my trying to make a difference for my heirs. One advantage for you, if you have followed my writing, is that it did not costs you one red penny. Some will know whether I was right or wrong, I hope I do.
I now have a new PC with Windows 10 that will take me a while to understand.
I have always considered myself honest, fair, and considerate but extremely firm when it comes to the law of the land and following explicit rules and instructions. My family and many people who have worked for me would be a chorus to tell you I am “Hard Headed”. I graduated from High School in May 1947 at 16 and I was convinced that I had learned everything possible and I was destined to be a leader.
This time period was focused on finding jobs for the brave young men who were lucky enough to have survived WWII. Finding a job then was about as hard as it would be today so when I reached 17 I joined the US Navy reserve. It took me several months but on March 17, 1948 I was accepted for active duty and I quickly discovered I was not as smart as I perceived. This transition from a boy to a man was expected and accepted as there were zero options. I learned that honesty, fairness, consideration were the rules but the one thing I added to my list was that “Respect” was not an option it is mandatory. I give the US Navy a lot of credit for preparing me to be a success. If I did not have to wear a hat I might have spent my life in the military.
I have had an active life that most people would revere. I have worked and/or visited in 32 countries and 49 states. I have witnessed how people are treated, especially females, as I have had two wives, five daughters and currently nineteen daughters in-law, grand daughters and great grand daughters. If we had an honest media you would see how the Muslims treat women and girls that would make Christians throw up. The media can’t remove the things I witnessed with my own eyes.
I have watched the Democratic Party switch from the conservative political views to the most Liberal-Progressive political party in my 86 years. Texas and most people my age or twenty years younger were conservative Democrats at one time. We did not change but the Democratic Party did.
Folks, someone is going to have to pay for the 20 trillion dollar debt. Hillary has called for another 500,000 Muslims to be dumped into poverty so they will vote for Democrats. We can’t even take care of our veterans who have worse health care than illegal aliens.
Hillary will continue to thwart our energy industry with regulations and end our coal industry entirely. If our government would wake up, the energy industry alone could create at least 500,000 good jobs in less than six months. We have more than enough coal, oil and natural gas to become an exporter in two years. This could ease and reduce the national debt.
Good hard working Americans have watched their jobs disappear, especially after Bill Clinton gave us NAFTA. Why unions can’t wake up and see how the Democrats have systematically caused so many of its members to be without jobs. Why do the union leaders never lose their positions?
If Hillary wins this election she will have everyone on welfare, most Blacks, most union members, the same army of young women who are blind and as many dead people as they can dig up.
I am in my twilight years of my life and blessed to still be here. I can’t believe that females, union members and the black folks are dumb enough to vote for someone who created the poverty and unemployment that plagues America today.
When I do croak the Democrats will not be able to register me to vote by getting my name off of a tombstone. I have chosen to be cremated. C Brewer September 7, 2016
I doubt that anyone has recently missed my words of wisdom, experience and vision of life in the United States of America that began on August 31, 1930. I am certainly not the oldest, richest, and smartest or best educated American still alive but no American alive or dead has loved this country more than I still do. I will claim to be one of the most disappointed Americans alive watching the leaderless political meltdown and a misguided media spark the flames of dissention to purposely disunite the people.
Let me review some facts that history will prove are absolutely certain. We have a two term President who has written books that are filled with hate for every system of government. He is so obsessed with the hate of slavery, which was wrong and abolished in America 150 years ago, he is hell-bent to destroy our Republic form of government. In fact he has repeatedly sparked the flames of insurrection and uses the money mad media to disunite the people. He is no different than Louis Farrakhan but he is in control and commands the power over the media, Congress, the military and the Supreme Court.
Another alarming fact is nearly 100% of our Congress is so scared of both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz they will do anything to keep them from being elected President. Trump and Cruz know what needs to be done to re-unite Americans and revive the middle class successes we enjoyed for most of my 85 years. Congress is so filled with millionaires who have sucked off the government teat all of their adult lives fear that “Term Limits” will send them back to chasing ambulances. Congress is 100% responsible for the entire reason Americans are so scattered and our unity is under attack. They make the laws that our President ignores while he incites chaos by making Americans hate each other.
America has three units of government designed to make sure we have freedom and it has worked for a long time to keep the balance of power under control. I have covered the Executive Branch which our President is responsible and the Congressional Branch which controls the laws and appropriates the funds to operate all three Branches. We the people elect both the President and Congress. Now let me review the third Branch, the Supreme Court.
Our founding fathers would spin in their graves if they could see where they failed when they gave lifetime tenure to nine lawyers who were appointed by the President and approved by the 100 members of the senate. Currently we have only 53 lawyers in the Senate and 160 in the House but I feel certain that Washington DC has more than any State by a wide margin. It appears that lawyers in the 1700’s found it more profitable to follow a wagon ambulance on horseback than lawyers today having to fight traffic in their BMW’s.
There has never been a Supreme Court Justice who was not an attorney in our history but there is no requirement in the Constitution that they have to be lawyers. Like term limits it is time to put some balance in this group as we now have the current 4 to 4 votes after Scalia was recently and quietly removed. It appears that law schools have different ways to read the Constitution as the Supreme Court has been aligned by political preference all of my life which appears to be a root cause for dissention in every decision they make.
So we have a President who ignores selective laws and incites anarchy, a Congress that is afraid to force him to follow their laws and a Supreme Court that can’t render any decisions because half of them are against the other half. Folks is there any wonder why America is so disunited?
Hoping I can get some attention to the fact that we have millions of illegal aliens with more rights to both welfare and health care than our veterans and too many children, please listen to Trump and Cruz. My choice for President is Donald Trump who is a proven leader and who I pray will nominate Ted Cruz as the next Supreme Court Justice. Both Washington and the Supreme Court need to be changed. No wonder Congress is scared, hopefully most of them will soon need to find other ways to make a living.
