Hey Democrats-Thanks for Dividing our Nation!

   An open letter to all you Trump hating, red tape spewing, job strangling unelected bureaucrats, the socialists in Congress and the ‘wannabe’ socialists and communists on campus and in our communities, those lewd alternative lifestyle spewing deranged morons in Hollywood and New York, to the deranged Leftist media, etc.

You’ve divided our country.

The Democrats hate President Trump and taxpayers…Pelosi has a new plan which would tax US pharmaceutical companies [meaning higher drug prices ] and have sat on the new USMCA treaty in order to deprive Trump of a political win…Clinton’s NAFTA plan killed thousands of US jobs you may recall.]

We here in flyover country, the deplorables as we’re called us,  do not like your anti-America, Bill of Rights robbing, disrespectful crap.  The approval rating for Congress is far less than for Donald Trump. It has made a mockery of ethics with its non-stop witch hunts of POTUS and the media is in lock step with your unethical behavior.

You’ve mocked traditional American values, religion, and have undermined our educational system. You denigrate life with your unlimited abortion on demand proposals and over the years, have undermined free speech.

This non-stop hatred for Trump, despite all that he’s accomplished for Americans, has got to stop.  Even RINOs are helping to undermine our nation vs. standing strong for Trump…

The Democrats never should have gone down this road, and even if everything they are alleging is true there is nothing that Trump has done that represents a “high crime or misdemeanor”.

And with Republicans in control of the U.S. Senate, you would think that Trump should be feeling quite safe.

Now that Democrats have launched an impeachment inquiry, they'll need to convince 20 Republicans in the Senate to vote to convict and remove him from power.

That's not happening - so what is their end game?

It's not just to damage Trump politically for 2020. When Republicans impeached Clinton, his approval rating skyrocketed to 70% -- which is a major reason Pelosi didn't want to impeach Trump until now

Unfortunately, so far only seven Republicans have publicly stated that they have ruled out removing Trump from office, and most Republican Senators are purposely refusing to take any sort of a public stand.  Here are a few examples

§ Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho): Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho): “I’m a juror and I’m comfortable not speaking.”

§ Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.): “I’d be a juror, so I have no comment.”

§ Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.): “I don’t need a strategy for impeachment because I may be a juror someday.

§ Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)“I am very likely to be a juror so to make a predetermined decision on whether or not to convict a president of the United States does not fulfill one’s constitutional responsibilities.”

So much for loyalty.  President Trump recently endorsed Senator Risch, and this is how he is repaying Trump?

If the Republicans in the Senate came together and released a public statement in which they pledged not to remove Trump from office, that would immediately suck all the life out of the impeachment process.

But they are not going to do that.  In fact, there are persistent rumors that quite a few Republican Senators are ready to stab Trump in the back.

Whether you support Donald Trump or not, the truth is that every American should be deeply alarmed by what is happening in Washington right now.  In 1835, Alexis de Tocqueville warned us that this might happen someday: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”

The scenario that he warned about is playing out right in front of us, and if Donald Trump is removed from office it is going to cause irreparable damage to our system of government.

Yours in Freedom,

Bruce ‘the PoorMan’



The Democratic Party doesn’t exist anymore.

They’re now the Democratic-Socialist Party. They’ve moved so far left that they even consider the radical liberal policies of Barack Obama to be too moderate.

The party that wants open borders, gun confiscation, and skyrocketing tax-rates for the middle class will NEVER control the White House.

Right now is too important a time for Patriotic Americans like you to sit on the sidelines while Nancy Pelosi and her MOB tear up the Constitution to try to IMPEACH President Trump.

Democrats have been trying to figure out a way to remove Donald Trump from office since his 1st day.  Trump was under investigation even before he won the election, and it has literally been a miracle that his presidency has been able to survive for as long as it has.

They’ve leveled every insult and accusation at him [supported by a complicit media] which have backfired on them; yet no one seems to suffer any consequences for their actions.

The Democrat-Socialists have been deceitful, derisive and divisive with their smear campaigns, sewing seeds of hatred throughout the country. Further, they’ve been obstructive on our national security [more worried about Syrian borders than our own] and have even held up passage of the new NAFTA treaty which would do great things for America and its workforce.

I think this impeachment circus is just a sideshow meant to distract Americans from full realization that Dems represent a do-nothing Congress who have a lower public approval rating than the President.

This is all a socialist strategy to undermine our Republic.  They’ve become the party of intolerance, about as useful as a condom in a convent.

Democrats really don’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot…

For the better part of three years, Democrats in Congress went all in on the probe into President Donald Trump’s non-existent ties with the Russian government. When Republicans objected, Democrats accused them of trying to hide vital information from the American people.

Well, now that it’s the Democrats being investigated, progressives seem to have a change of heart.


Socialism appears to be on the rise in our country, especially among the young, and we want to understand the extent of that support.

That’s why you have been selected by Hillsdale College to represent your state in a National Survey on Socialism.

With your response, you will help Hillsdale College more clearly understand the views of mainstream Americans—views that we will make available to policymakers and opinion leaders.

Every month, Hillsdale College is reaching millions of Americans with educational outreach. Your response to this National Survey on Socialism is essential in helping us form the most effective strategy in fighting for the future of our country.

So please give your views on the political, media, and cultural forces that are promoting socialism in our country today, by completing this National Survey on Socialism:

You can do a lot of things with old newspapers and other paper scraps. In another article, I explained how to make papercrete out of paper pulp and cement to make building bricks. But you can also make firewood or fire logs that you can burn in your fireplace, woodstove, or outdoors.

They’re easy to make and, once you have a basic setup, you can go into mass-production or at least make the stuff on a regular basis whenever the paper piles up.

 When you mention burning paper in a fire in place of logs, most people assume you’re talking about rolled-up newspapers bound together with wire...

 Most people don't care about their house being on Google Street View, but they should. It allows strangers to learn a lot about your home, or the contents of your garage (if it was open when the Street View Car drove by). There's even a feature that allows people to take a virtual drive through any neighborhood. A burglar could cruise along until he sees a house with its garage door open. If he notices anything valuable inside, he could make that house his next target.

 Fortunately, there's a very easy way to have your house blurred out...

Random Survival Tips Never Heard Before

This article is a must read to help you prepare for 30 random events and what you need to know to survive them. It touches on everything from being buried alive to what you should do if you are alone and start choking. Read more here.

'Best By Dates': What the dates on packages actually mean

How You Actually Need to Store Your Guns

In this article, you will learn exactly what constitutes gun storage, many of the different options available and everything you need to consider when storing yours away. Read more here.


As winter grows closer, it's time to start preparing for large winter storms and blizzards. We tend to joke that everyone has to run out and get milk and bread before the snow comes, but anyone who has lived through a massive blizzard understands you need more than milk and bread in your winter storm stockpile.

 The winters all over the country are changing. If you follow the Farmer's Almanac, then you know that they're predicting bitterly cold winter conditions in areas east of the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachian Mountains. Are you ready for the freezing, frigid, and snowy winter that is predicted?

 People all over the country have found themselves in the hands of Mother Nature with their proverbial pants down. The last time you want to be caught unprepared is in the middle of a blizzard...

Borax (also known as sodium borate) is a naturally-occurring mineral found in soil, plants, and even our own bodies. When I was growing up, my mom used it as a laundry booster, which is what most people use it for. In my twenties, I learned to use it as an ingredient in homemade laundry detergent. Then in my thirties, I was surprised to discover over 30 other things you can do with borax!

Granted, most of these uses have nothing to do with survival. But what I love about versatile items like vinegar, baking soda, and borax is they eliminate the need to store lots of cleaning supplies. One four-pound box can be used to clean almost anything around the house and it takes up very little space, leaving you room to store more important things, like food. That's why I recommend adding borax to your survival supplies.

If you're still not convinced, check out this list of uses for borax... 

Yours for a Socialist-Free America!

Unethical socialist-democrats are involved in hostile takeover of our nation. They’re a grave threat to democracy and erosion of trust in our government. They promote hostility, divisiveness and victimhood using whatever dirty tricks they can to unseat Trump and the rule of law.

Impeachment Sham- Angry Democrats To Americans: Your Votes Mean Nothing


I learned during my service days & contract work there is no political affiliation on your dog tags…unlike Hillary & CIA partisans, I signed agreements to essentially keep my political views to myself and to keep my mouth shut.  I served the President, not a political party.

Communist takeover of Hungary in the early 50s included threatening its duly elected leader & his family, secret police meetings in cities, planting false stories about him in media, packing local elections w/ Communist puppets, etc. Just like the socialist-Dems are doing w/ Trump today.

Repression always begins with gutting of rights and freedom of speech.  The Far Left makes use of what many call the ‘PC Police’ to keep people in line via peer pressure and public ridicule. They love to practice intolerance in the name of tolerance.  They seem to be the real purveyors of prejudice while sewing seeds of discord and hate. They’ve become political bullies which in turn is fueled by media bullies.

Secular progressives [socialists] insist on trashing our traditions, religion our founders; destroying self reliance and independence in the process.

Always demonizing conservatives through instigation, manipulation and maliciousness…effectively paralyzing free speech .  Keeping people dependent on welfare and substandard educational facilities are some of the tools used to keep folks in bondage and subservient.

In Rules for Radicals, author Alinsky tells ‘community organizers’ to not have conversations with their opponents; do not give them a chance to build any credence.  Activists must demonize their opponents; seek to have the public think you will ‘deliver’ them from the demons.

Belittle and demonize religion is a tool progressives use against conservatives. Remove God from all aspects of public life despite our Founders building a nation which incorporated the almighty into their grand plan. They want the STATE to be the highest authority.

Our Founders were terrified at the thought of an expanding government that had a voracious appetite for the resources of its people, one that would encroach on the rights of its people.

Ignorance is the reason history repeats itself, hence, why progressives have dumbed down an entire generation.  Dumb people are easier to control.  Politicians and media know this and take full advantage.

I have repeatedly warned that Democrats should have never gone down the road of impeachment, because either way this process turns out it is going to be very bad for America.
