America Has Voted: Midterm 2018 Election Results
The 2018 mid-term elections have happened! It is amazing how in America there can be a peaceful transition of power after an election. Many other countries do not have peaceful transitions, and there is war and even death in the transition of power. Every peaceful election in America is a miracle! It may seem like a battle, and it is a battlefield of ideas, but in the end, when all is said and done, it is amazing to see this miracle take place.
In Florida, the race for Governor and Senate were very close! Ron Desantis is now the new governor of Florida, and Rick Scott is now the Senator. This was a race between socialism and capitalism and capitalism won! It was a very close race though which shows that Florida is a divided state, divided between socialism and capitalism. Socialism has never worked! If you look at Venezuela even though the country has more oil than any other in the world, their economy is crashing because of socialism!
Greg gives an example of socialism. If you look at American football like the NFL and watch the players, they all must train for their specific position on the team. Once you get on the team, you are expected to play your position successfully! You will have to play the game! Socialism is like being on an NFL team, you have the stardom and are paid for your position, but you don’t have to play the game. It says the people that are paying for everything will play the game for you.
America gives you a chance to get out on the field and to play the game! People that want the American dream understand this. If this is understood, then you will be prepared to play the game because we are the ones responsible for our future. Greg shared this because in Florida we were 1% away from having a socialistic government from the votes. Socialism has never worked!
Former Governor Rick Scott now the Senator of Florida has stood true to what he said he was going to do as a Governor. Greg met Governor Scott on a couple of occasions, the first time he asked what he stood for and everything he told Greg he stood by and worked to bring to pass in Florida. The main thing is that he is for life! Then Greg met him the second time when Governor Scott came to sign the Baby Born Alive Bill. He signed into law House Bill 1129 Baby Alive. It is good news for all babies whose lives depend upon us while in their mother’s wombs and their “doctor’s” hands. The Infant Born Alive Act definition: This is a living, breathing, baby that was conceived as a result of a botched abortion. This bill entitles an infant born alive as a result of a botched abortion the same rights that a child born through natural birth is entitled to receive. This bill was signed in Pensacola, Florida, where the VFNtv studios are located, and Greg was able to tell Governor Scott that he did what he said he was going to do! Governor Scott worked hard in Pensacola and the economy has exploded!
We have also seen people like Justice Brett Kavanaugh have their Sixth Amendment rights violated. Where they are called guilty of a crime even though it has not been proven yet! The Sixth Amendment states, “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.” Justice Kavanaugh is above reproach, and he was treated unfairly! But the mid-term elections showed that Americans care and that they saw Constitutional rights violated and voted in the people who support the Constitution! Fox News reports, “Incumbent Senate Democrats in battleground states who opposed the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination appeared to have paid a price on Election Day, with senators Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Indiana’s Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Florida’s Bill Nelson all suffering defeat. In fact, every Democrat incumbent who opposed Kavanaugh in states rated “toss up” by Fox News lost their race. In contrast, the lone Democrat who voted for Kavanaugh, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, won his race. “Every Democratic Senator in a competitive race who voted against Kavanaugh lost,” tweeted Tom Bevan, Co-founder of RealClearPolitics.”
