The border crisis isn’t just a problem in Texas border counties, it extends to Brooks County, 70 miles away, where Sheriff Urbino “Benny” Martinez and ranch owners like Dr. Mike Vickers must contend almost daily with the aftermath of the invasion by illegal immigrants into the United States.

Brooks County, a county located in the U.S. state of Texas, with a population of approximately 7,076 people. The county seat is Falfurrias. It is one of the poorest counties in Texas. Much of the county is made up of large ranches.

This county, despite the border with Mexico being 70 miles away, is one of the most used transit points for the thousands of illegal immigrants smuggled into the U.S. undetected and making their way through the Rio Grande Valley. Some illegals from the groups die trying to cross the valley, some from dehydration, and others are silenced for obstructing the group’s passage through the valley.

Children and women are left to die in the desert, many of them raped. Sheriff Martinez and his deputies are trying to deal with the situation daily but with the lack of federal support and masses of people pouring into the county on a daily and weekly basis, it is almost impossible to do so.

One-Man Standing

County Sheriff Urbino “Benny” Martinez has one of the smallest budgets to do his job of protecting the residents of his county. Resources and manpower are lacking to deal with the situation of so many illegals. Martinez hasn’t heard from Washington in a long time. Nightly chases, arrests of smugglers and illegal runners are mostly handled by one deputy. Night vision devices and bulletproof vests are procured and paid for by the police officers themselves.

How long have you been sheriff of Brooks County?

Sheriff Martinez: I’ve been the sheriff for Brooks County the last six years.

How many deputies do you have? How big is your county?

Sheriff Martinez: The county is 944 square miles. I usually operate with one deputy that handles that. But I do have a commander—and I’m including everyone here; the commander and the captain—one deputy that handles the calls themselves. I have a couple of CID guys. Let me see … five, maybe six.

How many illegals do you encounter in a week, alive or dead? How many do you have to pursue? Are there some who will find you?

Sheriff Martinez: Well, it varies based on actual interaction. We can interact with between 50 to 80. But you’re talking about a week, so we’re looking at anywhere between 80 and 100. What we do varies because sometimes we have bailouts and we only can apprehend maybe 2 possibly 3 out of the 20 who ran out of the truck, so it’s hard to say. Actual contact … it could be 3 versus 17 getaways. I would say anywhere between 80 to 100 in a week, which was your original question.

Does your staff have adequate and proper equipment to serve in this situation, to fulfill their service and complete their job in a safe manner?

Sheriff Martinez: No, of course not. I’d probably need to at least double what I have. If I had between 15 and 20 boots on the ground, that would be much more efficient than what I have now. It would double the resources. As it is, we rely a lot on Border Patrol to help us. We also rely on state police and local city police because we simply don’t have adequate resources.

Does your staff receive proper gear from the State, or do they have to purchase the proper gear themselves?

Sheriff Martinez: We get the gear as frequently as we can. Is the proper gear what they have? Yes. But does it get outdated? Yes. Do we have the funds to upgrade? No, so we rely on grants and other resources for them to get the gear that is needed.

Do you get adequate support from the federal government?

Sheriff Martinez: Well, the support we get from the federal government is simply grant monies to help Border Patrol, to be a force multiplier with Border Patrol. It’s what those monies are for, right? Those are the only funds. We’re lacking the monies the county lost. It’s been 10 years since we lost almost $700,000 on recovering bodies. We’ve been trying to recover those bodies and to no avail. It’s just one of those things that we need to keep at until we get those funds back.

Valley of Death

Rio Grande Valley residents call it the Valley of Death because has become a tragic routine for many ranch owners to find human remains or bodies on their properties. One of the deputies’ main duties has become to recover human remains and bodies from surrounding ranches and categorize them forensically as much as possible. Extra training has even been required for deputies to perform this task. Since the Biden Administration, the number of body discoveries has increased by 250 percent in 2021 compared to 2020.

What percentage of increase in dead bodies have you seen in the last 10 years?

Sheriff Martinez: How many have we seen in the last 10 years in person? Percentagewise, in the last 10 years? It’s over 50, 60 percent, maybe more, because it varies. On average, we’re at 80 percent. That’s the average. At times, we’ll see maybe 20, 30 even 80 percent above that. That’s what we’re seeing if you look at it percentagewise.

Why do some people call your valley “The Valley of Death”?

Sheriff Martinez: Yes, some people call it that because we’ve recovered over 900 dead since 2009. We’ve recovered 180 bodies in the last 20 months. That’s why they call it ‘Death Valley’, because we’re 70 miles north of the border and some just can’t make it. This morning we found a little girl that was left behind yesterday. We found her, she was still alive and once she received a bit of medical care, she did well. I say she did well because she’s alive, so that’s a good thing. That’s truly a good thing. Or she would have been another statistic for us.

Not only does the sheriff’s team have to deal with the collateral damage of the border crisis, but ranchers live with this tragedy daily. Can you imagine what they face finding women and children left behind or their remains on their property … it’s heartbreaking.

Deceived and left alone by the government

Washington DC has been trying for months to convince citizens in the United States that the situation on

the border is under control and that not a single American citizen has been negatively affected by this crisis. However, the fact is that many American citizens, especially ranchers, are being negatively affected.

Thousands of feet of fencing are damaged weekly and must be paid for by the landowners themselves, which can be $1000 to $2000 a month per ranch, in addition to the cost of lost, injured or killed livestock. Destroyed gates and stolen pick-up trucks are now part of the ranchers’ daily routine. Not to forget the tragic loss of life.

Dr. Mike Vickers is one of the ranchers who must live with these problems. To keep some control, he trained his German Shepherds to provide security for his property, they are trained to take illegals into custody and make sure they don’t run away until the Border Patrol or Sheriff come to arrest them.

What is the size of your ranch?

Dr. M. Vickers: This ranch is 1000 acres.

How many times in a week do you find illegals who have died on your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Not weekly, but we have some. The ranch south of me is 110,000 acres and the one north is over 48,000 acres, so collectively there are a lot.

How many unaccompanied children do you find?

Dr. M. Vickers: We find a lot of unaccompanied children

Your German Shepherds are a huge help in keeping your property safe – how many criminal illegals would you say they’ve helped put in custody?

Dr. M. Vickers: The dogs have helped with over 800 illegals, now in custody, just in

our house pastures.

How high are your monthly costs to rebuild the fences around your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Fence repairs run $1000 to $2000 per month.

Do you get any support from the federal government?

Dr. M. Vickers: None. No financial support from the State or Federal government.

No longer the America that once was ….

The mainstream media and federal government talk about the best America in a long time, not everyone sees it in Brooks County.

Do you think the U.S. has changed since this border crisis got out of control?

Sheriff Martinez: Absolutely changed. Some people might not admit or talk about it, but yeah, of course it’s changed. Anytime you see the influx as it is, as you’re coming in, your infrastructure is going to hurt because the infrastructure is not built to that. You can’t build that fast to meet the expectations of those coming in. So, it has absolutely changed.

It’s one of those issues that if you don’t have the infrastructure to support it, you’re going to see a change; the volume, the medical care, the resources that you need, your community service resources, et cetera, et cetera. Even the schools are going to have to improvise for that also. Housing. Everything that anyone, any family member goes through, it’s just been quadrupled or more just because of the influx of people.

Do you feel safe on your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Only feel safe when well-armed.

Do you think the border crisis is more an invasion than a crisis?

Sheriff Martinez: At this point, you can probably call it that simply because of the volume of people coming in. There’s too many of them. It goes back to what I said earlier. Not enough resources to house all of them or medical resources to assist in their care. Anything that we use as a norm, is not a norm for them. That must be sped up, put in the front row so they can be treated and be taken care of, not only in terms of education, but also in terms of wellness and health issues. It’s just too overwhelming right now to say that we have everything in place to take care of them.

Do you think the open border policy is a betrayal to the American people?

Dr. M. Vickers: Open Borders are a huge betrayal to all Americans.


By Vicky Richter

A completely different portrait of a modern-day Madame Butterfly

Who has not met her at one of the big freedom and truth events and not been
drawn to her beaming smile? Tomoko Jones is an icon at events like the Reawakening
Tour or CPAC events. Who is this Japanese beauty that reminds every onlooker of Madame Butterfly from Giacomo Puccini’s opera? GEORGE had the chance to get to know Tomoko better and further enchanted by her in an interview.

GEORGE: What was it like growing up in Japan?

Tomoko Jones (TJ): I had a happy childhood. Life in Japan was easy. My father was a cruise ship captain, often gone for weeks at a time. The family was healthy, we lived comfortably. My childhood was mostly in the Tokyo area. It was easy to get around with the extensive train system. With little crime even young children would travel alone by train. There were great restaurants, and much to see and do. I often traveled with friends to the mountains for snowboarding on weekends.

I was popular in school; had friends I am still in touch with today. Higher education, while competitive, was very affordable. I studied English in college and eventually went on to a modeling career. I became a GT Race Queen, enjoying a brief period of celebrity before getting married and moving to America. It was a fun experience. I met interesting people and developed skills in communication with a diverse fan base.

GEORGE: How did you come to immigrate to the USA?

TJI: I married an American man, so the immigration process was easy. We met at the Semikron Japan trade show where I worked as a promotional model. He worked for a semiconductor equipment company, where we worked together in his company’s trade show booth. For several years we would get together when he was in Japan visiting customers. He was handsome, kind and eventually I fell in love with him. We married the 4th of September, then 9/11 happened. The world had suddenly become crazy. My father worried about me moving to America, worried my English was not good enough. My mother worried I had not sufficient training to take care of my husband, and I worried that 9/11 would halt the immigration process but was able to get my green card one month later. I have lived in Austin, Texas ever since. My parents’ concerns, not an issue.

GEORGE: What differences do you see in the two countries and their cultures?

TJ: Japanese and Americans are quite different. The Japanese people are more humble, more apologetic, more courteous, and tend to avoid confrontation. American friends suggested I not say I am sorry so often. Japanese people work hard, are highly organized and meticulous. I am sometimes frustrated by service provided by American workers. A Japanese worker would never forget to include ketchup with your French fries.

Everything in Japan is a process and there are rules. This can be annoying at times. In trying to resign from a job found out I could not resign by simply giving notice. There was a process to go through and had to continue working. That seems so odd to me now, but that is the Japanese way.

I never really felt restrictions on freedom living in Japan, but over the years I have come to see that the Japanese people are not as free as they may think. Some of which may be tradition but wonder if such traditions had been intentionally designed over the centuries to control the populace. One summer while visiting, I enrolled my daughter in a Japanese kindergarten. Each day when I picked her up, the teacher would complain that my daughter refused to stand in a line and sing along with the other kids. I marveled at the ability of the teacher to get three-year old children to line up, stand at attention in cute little military style uniforms and sing together. Obedience and structured life of Japanese people is learned from an early age. You must follow the rules. A non-compliant three-year-old is not acceptable in Japan.

The Japanese love their country and will do whatever their government tells them to do, no matter how absurd. I have come to realize that the Japanese people learn from childhood to be compliant. When their government tells them to wear a mask, they do. When they are told to get vaccinated, they dutifully line up for the shot. Of course, all the same propaganda by mass media in Japan, we see here in America. Few Japanese question government mandates even when presented with facts that contradict the government narrative. I see this happening in America also, and it concerns me, but in Japan the population is under a spell. Citizens taught to care about society, not about the individual or individual freedoms that are so much more important to Americans. So, there is still hope for freedom in America.

GEORGE: How did you become so active in the freedom and truth movement in the U.S.?

TJ: It all started with covid. People were getting sick and dying. Did not take long for doctors to figure out how to treat covid. It was shocking to think these treatments were intentionally withheld by the government. Even more shocking that it was happening in concert all around the world. People were dying in hospitals and governments were allowing it to happen. Then came the masking, distancing, shutdowns, and for the first time felt I was no longer living in a free society. Our government was intentionally trying to kill us. Why were potentially lifesaving treatments not made available? Why was information about these treatments censored? Why were people allowed to die? Were hospitals killing people? Doing extensive research, I started to learn about the WEF, Bill Gates, Soros, and the Great Reset.

Then came the November 2020 elections, and the purpose of the pandemic became clear. Our country was under attack. On Jan 6, my daughter and I went to DC. It was reassuring to see so many people ready to rise. The country was not going down without a fight.

When the vaccines came, we learned quickly they were dangerous and did not work. Yet our government continuously lied about the safety and efficacy; there was no longer any doubt the country, the world we know and love was in trouble.

Even with all this happening, it seemed clear to me, so many people are complying. You could not talk to them without being labeled a conspiracy theorist. I felt a need to get involved, to be around people that knew more than I did about what was happening. I started attending events and networking with people. I have learned so much about what is really going on. Now my plan now is to share the truth with the Japanese people.

GEORGE: Who were the most exciting people you met on your travels to major events of the freedom and truth movement?

TJ: All the people I have met have been exciting to meet. People at these events are full of energy, it is inspiring to me. Many have given me new hope, encouraged me and I have learned so much from so many. I love talking to people in person, it helps me understand what they are really saying and know they are truthful. The patriots I have met are amazing people, I enjoy spending time with them, and love their fighting spirit

GEORGE: Why are the MAGA and America First movement so important to you?

TJ: I do not want to give up our freedom. I love Trump’s “America first!” policies. We need to give power back to the people. Current government is not working for the people anymore. I support candidates who will work for the people. I did not care about politics maybe a year ago. But now care very deeply. I attended fundraisers in Mar a Lago and Bedminster. I met political candidates and wonderful supporters. So many are new to politics as well. I believe these people will clean up corruption in our government, fix our election system, flush out the communists that have infiltrated our government agencies, schools, corporations, and undo horrible policies of the Biden administration that are destroying the country. Our November elections are so important.

GEORGE: What obstacles have you encountered in the freedom and truth movement and life in general in the United States?

TJ: One of the wonderful things about America is there are no obstacles. At least I have not encountered any, until covid of course. As for the movement, the main obstacle is access to information. It is not that information is hard to find, but intentionally hidden from casual observers. Mainstream media feeds people limited information, only information the government wants you to know. If we consume only mainstream information, we will not know vaccines are bioweapons, we will not know our elections are fraudulent, we would not know the extent of our economic collapse and think everything will be simply fine. My husband’s business partner only listened to NPR radio in the morning, NPR cable news in the evening. My husband warned him of the dangers of the vaccines, he would not listen. NPR said they were safe, and everyone needed to get vaccinated. When the vaccines came out he was first in line. Last November the booster shot killed him.

GEORGE: What about the freedom and truth movement in Japan? Are there similar movements there?

TJ: I am unsure, my focus has been here. I will be getting more involved in Japan in the months ahead. Japan has been in a perpetual state of mass formation for a long time, so it may be hopeless, but I need to try. So many Japanese people love Trump. Japan has always been somewhat of a closed society, and many disliked Abe’s globalist views. I suppose their love for Trump stems from his America first policies and their longing for leaders in Japan to express the same for their country.

GEORGE: What would you like to see Americans do in terms of current economic and geopolitical situation?

TJ: I wish more people would pay attention to what is happening. There is so much going on and most people seem unaware or not care. Sure, they feel the pain of higher gas and food prices, but do not see or refuse to see the cause. We need to keep pushing, and I know so many patriots will stand strong and not give up.

We need a big win in November and in January the people need to stand with newly elected champions, dismantle the corrupt administrative state and prosecute those responsible for this nightmare.

By Dr. Kirk Elliot PHD.

In George Orwell’s book, 1984 he stated, “Big brother is watching you.” He described a world where there were no secrets, where big government knew everything about you, probably more than you knew about yourself. This was written in 1949. Now, 73 years later the future that struck fear into the hearts and minds of readers is now. Privacy has become a relic of the past, and reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.

As humans our normalcy bias is the greatest danger to ourselves. By that I mean what? What you thought was safe and reasonable in the past is not necessarily the same in the present and the future because as the world changes, as the economy changes, as politics change, we need to change in accordance with that not just to survive, but to thrive.

We sit on the precipice of a currency change like nothing that has ever been experienced in human existence. Executive Order 14067 signed into law on March 9, 2022 moved the United States at a blazing speed into the world Orwell envision back in 1949 where under this executive order, if one plays out the potential outcomes of the inter-agency and multinational cooperation spelled out in the order, a central bank digital currency (“CBDC”) allows for:

According to a speech by Dr. Pippa Malmgren at the World Government Forum in Abu Dhabi earlier this year, CBDCs provide for complete clarity of transactions and will be implemented in accordance with “programmable money.” The ramifications of this are the government will be able to turn off your bank account at the touch of a button, track and record every purchase you make, and ultimately protect against money laundering and trafficking which all of us would view as a desirable outcome, but the undesirable outcome is that for political, social, or economic misalignment, your ability to buy or sell could be shut off.

About 90% of central banks globally are considering such a move to CBDCs in which there is clarity of transactions. This is not about financial freedom, but rather about the loss of freedom and complete control of our political, economic, religious, personal and health freedoms. Ardous Huxley in Brave New World stated, “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

We are all about to become slaves in this brave new world, but there are solutions to investing privately in this new paradigm where you don’t have to settle for surviving. You can thrive. Physical Gold and Silver offer a get out of the system investment option. Dr. Kirk Elliott is founder of Kirk Elliott PhD Private Advisors, protecting people’s wealth for over 27 years.

The Pilgrims designed and paid for the Faith Monument.

The monument is based upon FAITH in the heavenly Father and the Bible. That is why FAITH is at the top of the monument, pointing to heaven and holding the Bible.

Photo by Sheila Holm

With FAITH, the four pillars of the Faith Monument are: MORALITY, LAW, EDUCATION and LIBERTY. The four basic pillars are identified and explained to help us learn how to live our daily life in truth, learning how to obtain and retain liberty and freedom in America.
The pillars are the basis of the scripture: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6
The Pilgrims set this plan in motion by banning all pagan feasts and festivals which were celebrated in Europe. They lived under tyranny which became worse generation by generation.

The ‘American Experiment’ is the term used often because the Pilgrim plan was not passed on generation to generation. The Pilgrims hoped future generations in America would remain separate and set apart from the world and not align with the world and allow evil to enter in and create tyranny in America to the point it would overtake America.  

Their hope was for the people in America to learn the truth and live in truth regarding MORALITY, LAW, EDUCATION and LIBERTY per the Bible so the future generations would be able to retain Liberty and Freedom on the land. Their passion was evident in everything they did, from establishing colonies to writing state constitutions. 

The Pilgrim plan was a 500-year plan. It was developed by the Pilgrims who knew how powerful it was for them to be able to read a bible in English. The translation did not happen until William Tyndale translated the bible and smuggled copies to England in 1535.  

Often, I am asked: “Where is the 500 year Pilgrim plan ‘written down’?” 

The answer is easy: The Pilgrim Plan is revealed by their design and descriptions on the granite Faith Monument. It is a simplified plan to help us know how to obtain and retain Liberty and Freedom. 

Photo by Robert Agee

The Faith Monument was not erected until 1889.
The title which appears on the front of the monument confirms the title was changed to A National Monument to the Forefathers, Erected by a Grateful People.
Nobody was credited with providing the monument, a monument which is hidden from the people and even the main streets in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The Pilgrim Society paid for the monument.

The Pilgrims designed the monument.

The Pilgrim Society paid for the monument.

The Pilgrims identified FAITH as the title of the monument.

The Pilgrims are not mentioned and their efforts are not identified on the monument.
Governor William Bradford’s wife fell overboard and drowned in quiet water after the Mayflower anchored in Cape Cod, a short distance from Plymouth. He continued and became an amazing leader of the Pilgrims and the Colony.
Many of the Pilgrims traveled without their family members.
More than half of the people on the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, businessmen and crew, died during the first winter.
The Faith Monument confirms the commitment of the Pilgrims and their desire for America to be a land where people would be able to live free from tyranny, obtain and retain Liberty and Freedom on the land for their generation and future generations.
In future issues of George, the four pillars of the Faith Monument will be shared, pillar by pillar along with each of the sections of the monument between the pillars.

Eight months in, Eric Adams TALKS about his experience, and that he knows what the crime problem is. He just doesn’t DO ANYTHING about it.”

By George Young

God, I miss Rudy Giuliani.

You can make as much fun of the elder statesman as you like, but if you lived in NYC in the 70s and 80s (Yes, I did), you would understand what a brilliant job he performed.

Times Square was the pornography and prostitution center of the universe.

Central Park was nowhere to be at night . . . or even during the day.

The Bronx lost so many residents and buildings to urban blight, crime, and occupancy flight the city lost track of the number of empty apartments.

The subways were graffiti-covered homages to the disappearance of civic and community pride.

The municipal unions were out of control.

An endless (seemingly, anyway) parade of inept Democratic mayors from Wagner through Dinkins made the situation worse with each term.

These mayors from Central Casting made brilliant speeches, dressed well and looked good in public.

But each mayor DID NOTHING.

The city, desperate for a solution, tossed out David Dinkins after one term, and elected Rudy Giuliani.

By the time he finished his second term, Times Square put Disneyland to shame; Central Park could be traversed in the dark; and the subways took a shower and showed up for work, if not on time, certainly more conscientiously.

The usual malcontents, the ones who elect substance abusing dopes like Bill de Blasio and box-checking glad handers like Eric Adams howled about the City as Police State. They lampooned the safe, fun, and entertaining Times Square. They groused about the lack of personality in Central Park.

And at the first opportunity, after a fine 12-year management job by Michael Bloomberg, they installed the Body by Entenmann’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio.

In less than eight years, NYC returned to the unsafe, crime-infested urban area of the 70s and 80s. People left. Jobs disappeared. The pandemic was badly handled. Riots broke out in the name of justice. Billions of dollars of property were destroyed. And our bloated Mayor painted “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue.

Ironic, since the famous thoroughfare received the brunt of the SJW wrath in the Summer of 2020.

In 2021, Mayor de Blasio was termed out. On the campaign trail Eric Adams boasted of his credentials as a former police captain. He knew the city. He knew how to fix the crime problem.

Eight months in, Eric Adams TALKS about his experience, and that he knows what the crime problem is.

He just doesn’t DO ANYTHING about it.

It took more than three decades and five mayors before the residents of Manhattan had enough and voted for a Republican. In less than five years, that member of the GOP returned the city to its former greatness.

Do we have decades to wait?

Can we handle three more inept, smooth-talking, flashy dressing, Do Nothings at Gracie Mansion?

Wise up, New York City.

It’s not too late.

Yet.

You know it; it’s like watching a movie, and midway through you’re dying to tell others the ending you’ve already figure out. “Just watch. Any bets that…” And there it is! And it happens just like as you predicted. “Ah, ha!!! I told you!!” And everyone sitting next is just shaking their head because they guessed the same ending. As if YOU had some great insight.

Doesn’t matter how improbable it may seem. Deep inside – you know it – and everyone else does too. Regardless of how you feel about his personality, Donald Trump’s policies were great for America and good for you as well. Be honest with yourself: If you could trade him—straight up—for Joe Biden today, would you?

Nearly everyone has shared their theories. As for me, I love them all. In one corner, you have theories ranging from executive orders that would put the military in control. Conversely, you have scenarios where states would realize, “Oops? We made a mistake. Return these Electoral College votes into the Trump column.” I think I’ve heard nearly all the scenarios. Some, I believe, could be a reality. Others…not so much. Here’s what I think just might be playing out…

What we have seen in the past year is runaway inflation and “a common enemy” (gas prices) worthy to unite Americans. There is always a segment of the population that says, “It’s not the PRESIDENT that set the gas prices!” However, it was Joe Biden who axed the Keystone XL pipeline his first day upon taking control.

Greatly reducing supply while demand remains constant is “Economics 101”; what did he think would happen to the price of gas? Joe knew. They all did and we’re paying the price. Most Americans agree that the President and/or his policies have SOMETHING to do with the gas prices. It’s painful. Even when you’re filling up your tank you play games with yourself. It’s kind of like when you purposely set your clock 10 minutes ahead to “fool” yourself into thinking you are behind on time, just so you can be ahead of time.

I’ve done it. I don’t want the pain of spending $100 to fill up my tank. So, I’ve filled it halfway as if two fifty-dollar “fill-ups” feels better than a hundred-dollar, one-time fill-up. Most Americans have blamed this on Joe Biden. With ALL DUE RESPECT, Mr. Biden… Don’t shoot the messenger…

People have blamed Joe Biden for our economic woes, and I know this. Americans have NEVER been so united. When you are in gas pumps and you have a “Come and Take It” bumper sticker on the back of your car, and the guy next to you has a “COEXIST” bumper sticker? And the guy next to you figures you’re a conservative talking about guns, and you assume he is a liberal? All good… but are we really sworn enemies? You can both be at the pump and agree that we deserve something better than $5/gallon gasoline?

The economy, open borders, Afghanistan debacle, and the other “mistakes” are uniting Americans. I’ve even heard from my left leaning friends who are saying, “I still hate Trump, but I’m going to vote for him next time.”

Here’s another thing… There are some on the right that say that the system is broken and that there is fraud at the ballot boxes. Regardless of how you feel about that, here is what has been going on these past two years: The STATES have been tightening up their voting laws.

Many Americans still falsely believe that the federal elections are all run by the Federal Government. In fact? That is what the “fight” is still about to this day. See – the Federal Government currently doesn’t dictate “how voting is to be done.” There is no magic button that says, “Let’s get rid of voting machines and let’s switch to paper ballots.” There is nothing that says, “Let’s do the “purple thumb” version of voting. You vote, and then you dip your right thumb in purple ink to show you voted.”

I’m hoping that some of these solutions may have their place in due time. But here is the reality…it’s the individual states that have jurisdiction over the federal elections. Each state does it “their way.” For Conservatives? That is what they want. Conservatives want STATES’ RIGHTS.

During the past two years, there has been a plethora of laws in battleground states that have changed. I love that word “plethora.” It reminds me of the “Three Amigos” movie back in the 80’s. “Can you even define ‘plethora’?” Research for yourself. See how many laws that the conservative legislatures in Conservative States have been changed. You don’t need me to tell you; look it up yourself.

There are hundreds of STATE laws that have been changed in battleground states that favor the conservative agenda. Many of these are things that some would think are “no brainers.” Such as requiring a driver’s licenses (or similar ID) to vote.

At the end of the day, many people want Trump back. Ronald Reagan said it best during his reelection bid, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” People could lie, but we can’t really lie to ourselves. Even if you CAN set your clock 10 minutes faster to “trick yourself.” The simplest, most obvious question: “Is America better off than we were two years ago?”

When you find the honest answer in both your mind and your heart, then you will know and tell the future. Just don’t blurt it out to your fellow movie-goers.
