I called the Electoral College count.
Unfortunately it went to the candidate I didn’t vote for. President Obama has won re-election.
So it is time to get busy again contacting my representatives; I encourage you to do the same.
On the national level, I will be talking about Benghazi, about Fast and Furious, about a budget (HELLO WASHINGTON, Do your JOB), about the 2nd Amendment (say no to any version of an assault weapon ban) and pushing them to resist new regulations on just about everything.
On the state level, I’ll be talking about Campus Carry, Open Carry and what we can do to reduce the regulatory burden local and state businesses face. I think we’ll see pressure this next session for a state income tax – NO way.
On the local level, pretty much the same thing. We need to push back against regulations like the recently proposed increase in the smoking ban. We need to push back against paying the company collecting trash and recycling to replace its truck fleet under the guise of going to the rolling bins.
It is also time to put more effort into my preps.
With Obama’s win, I see no check on the government’s deliberately inflationary practices. In fact I expect it to get much worse. I would rather buy shelf stable food now then hold dollars that are buying less and less.
I was hoping some money would come in before the election so I could start an AR build or buy one. Anyone think prices will drop after the election? I didn’t think so. Oh well, still better to have one at a premium.
So, anyone else have any plans they want to share?
