The gunless vote for Democrats

The New York Times let the truth slip out. The Times showed disarming people is the quickest way to suck them into socialism.
From Nate Cohn and Kevin Quealy:
Americans are deeply split along demographic lines, but there aren’t many demographic characteristics that embody America’s cultural divide better than gun ownership.
In the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, the polling firm SurveyMonkey published a pair of maps from its 2016 presidential election exit polls. It showed the electoral maps for voters who said they had a gun in their home, and for those who said they did not.
In every state but Vermont – perhaps the most liberal state in the country, but one where Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, often support gun rights – voters who reported living in a gun-owning household overwhelmingly backed Donald J. Trump.
The opposite is true for voters who said they did not live in a home with a gun. In all but one state that could be measured, voters overwhelmingly preferred Hillary Clinton. (The exception was West Virginia; not enough data existed for Wyoming.)
There were too few homes in Wyoming that don't have a gun to register in this survey.


Gun ownership is a marker for a bigger threat to socialism. Some conservatives romanticize about and armed resistance to socialists when they regain control of Washington. "Red Dawn" was a movie.

The real threat to socialism is self-reliance.  Five words should strike terror in the hearts of these would-be dictators:
A Country Boy Will Survive.
The Marxists want to strip Americans of guns and hence, their self-reliance, and hence their freedom because a free people do not require the government to survive.

The Marxism of Barack Obama's "You Did Not Built That" is a bigger lie than his you can keep your doctor because Obama wants to rid the nation of the whole notion of self-reliance and independence.

Who knew that the most radical and rebellious song sung at Woodstock was "Going Up Country"?

Of course, the group's name was Canned Heat.

  1. "A Country Boy Will Survive"

    Nice Bocephus reference!

    Yep, self reliance, gun ownership, and distrust of gubment tend to go together.

  2. So Muggins here clicks on the "Canned Heat" link, fully expecting to find "Up the Country" by that fantastic group- and end up at a Sterno ad! Zap! Pow! You got me Don!

    For those who want to remember the actual song, here it is:

    BTW- proud gun owner & member of many Gun Rights outfits, inc. NRA (Patron Member.) Also a lover since 1968 of Canned Heat, who put on the best live concert that I've ever seen, in Frankfurt Germany!

    Gun control isn't about guns. It's about control. They mean to have it, and I mean to deny them that privilege.

  3. I see what ya did there Mr Surber... Canned Heat. Ha

  4. A pertinent comment, made by a favorite writer over 2 1/2 decades ago:

    ....."I would rather have my LIBERTY than a filthy bowl of oatmeal and a promise of security....from liars"......

    Charley Reese, Orlando Sentinel about 1990.

    Words that my family and I live by every day.


    1. Charlie Reese. Boy, that's a blast from the past. Loved reading Charlie. I was in Brevard Florida Today territory but sometimes got a hold of an Orlando Sentinel. Good stuff.

  5. The Democratic Party was, is and apparently always will be the Party of Slavery. So called "Progressivism" has never done anything more than restore feudal class systems.

  6. Going up the Country with Alan Wilson is my favorite even though I'm not a Woodstock guy. The song is about freedom of the soul. Let the libs stay unarmed, and croak, waiting for 911 to answer. Do I care? No.

  7. My favorite quote of all time is from Sallust: "Only a few prefer liberty, the majority seek nothing more than fair masters."

    It's almost like half of this country suffers from some kind of generational, institutionalized servitude; a want/desire to be a subject. That's fine, that amicable divorce can make them subjects while we remain citizens.

  8. Wrong kind of canned heat.

  9. OH, and when I first saw the title I thought it said the Gutless vote for democrats. Old eyes.....

  10. Would be intrigued to hear Michael McDonald's interpretation of Robert Hite's vocal's
    (Not to be confused with John Force's son-in-law Robert Hight, modern da Funny Car Star)!

  11. Self reliance, the mother's milk of individual liberty loving people everywhere, is still alive and well in fly-over country.

    We learned it from our parents, who learned it from their parents, we teach it to our children.

    Not so in the inner-city cesspools and blue bubbles of the coastal elites.

    How many lawyers can even change their own tire should they have a flat? How may inner-city kids can drive a straight shift? Fix a leak under the kitchen sink? Grow or slaughter their own food? Fix a leak in the roof? Drive a bulldozer? Drill a well? Wire a house? Build a barn?

    That's why they will never win.

    We can do without them, but they can't do without us.

    They, deep down, despise us and fear us, because they NEED us.

    We don't need them.

    And we can defend ourselves.

    We neither desire nor need their permission to do so.
