Show Notes Transcript

Well, welcome to the live shoot podcast. My name is Jeff I've been a licensed firearm dealer for the last 14 years in this podcast. We talk about everything related to the second amendment, anything going on, other issues in politics and anything that might be going on in my personal life or in sports or entertainment. But we partnered with focus to the second amendment. So welcome. Welcome. Welcome. It is February 18th Friday, and it is a great day here in Texas. And I was sitting in. Thinking over the last six years or so, you know, really 2017, 2018, maybe about what I personally have learned. And I learned a lot in these last four to six years, I learned that the deep state is real, that there isn't an ministry. Society in our government that really controls things. And that Congress, our president and even the courts have a limited amount of what they're actually doing, how and impacting us on a day to day basis. And the, I guess I didn't understand how that worked, how things like the CDC, FDA, EPA. FCC how those, what th what those people's life, long government employees and what, what their power is and the control that they have and how limited the other leaders within our government can do about it. The fact that Anthony Fowchee is the highest paid government in boy. Devastated you know, amazing. But then other things I learned that was even more shocking was that corruption within our department of justice, the FBI, the CIA you know, when the Russia collusion originally started Took it as just another story from the left, but then when you start digging into the details and everything that's coming out within the Durham report, and then the involvement that the FBI had in actually trying to set a Donald Trump up. I learned that this year I learned that I have to do my own research as it pertains to how I take care of my body and my family's body, how we handle our health related issues. Again. You look at what's happened in COVID and all the information out there and how this was directed. And I guess this is a bigger statement. I learned that big pharma is very real and that it is directly controlling the, what is going on in our government. And our government is controlling what big pharma does by their, their payouts. And. A lot of the way our, our medical decisions have been directed have been based on big pharma and keeping their pockets lined with a newish of shots every year for our kids ongoing, you know, medication that we have to take on on a daily, weekly, monthly basis for ailments that may or may not really exist. I learned that I learned that. Our school boards have no interest in what is good for our children. I learned that the, and this is not something that's completely new. I learned that you, we cannot trust the media. The media has lost its way completely. And there's. Infant testimony, more things that, that I've learned. And I hope that other people have learned this as well. And then I now look at the world from a different perspective. So if anything came out of what's coming on in the last two to four years, the fact that now some of the truth. This is being seen by some people and you may call us conspiracy theorist. And I don't, I don't believe that this, this is not a, a theory. There are well lined out facts that support that. And what, what I, the reason I'm going down all this is because the voting started at hint, Texas. This week. I haven't voted yet. This weekend. I'll do my early voting, but this was the first time. And I, and I, I don't, I'm not proud to say this. I have voted consistently in every election, primary run off, you know, for the last. 20 years. And I thought I was an educated voter, but I admit that once I got down past a certain level with, on that ballot, I had no idea who I was voting for. And especially in the primaries, when you may have four or five candidates running for a position, I didn't know who I was voting for my wife and I sat down and this. And we went through everyone that we're voting and we did as much research as we could on, on what their positions were, what they've said, what each one. And we came up with what we felt was our best selection for what we believe is right for this country. People that believe in protecting. Our individual rights. So that believe in the constitution, believe in the limited power of government, believe that we have a right to make our own choices. Believe that protecting our borders are important. We looked for those types of candidates and, and we have, you know, gone through and we made our selections, whether those candidates are the ones that get selected. I don't know. But we made our best choices. And this was the most educated voting effort that I've done. I've probably ever, and that is probably sad to say, but I don't think I'm alone. And I think that if we learned anything as a country, That is again, something else that we have learned is that it starts local and we have to make sure that we're putting the right people in locally because they can greatly affect how our lives are run and what our abilities are hard to control our own lives. And so as the primary season is rolling around, Texas is the first. And then over the next several months, it's going to be rolling around other states. I encourage everybody out there to do your research, go and look at every candidate and find out who is the best candidate that supports the constitution support individual rights of freedom of Liberty. The freedom of religion supports the second amendment. And don't just go off of the NRA ratings. I looked at the NRA ratings and then compared it to the candidates that we had ultimately selected and they didn't line up. Great. Okay. And that's B based on, there may be other candidates that were just supportive for the second amendment, but. Had more views that lined up closer to what I was looking for that I believed would actually take action that weren't just rhinos. Weren't big establishment politicians that were just going to try and keep things going and just keep their positions of power in place. So be careful when you're looking at who, you know, you can use the recommendations and line them all out side by side and see who says, what about everybody? But do your research. I encourage you. We have to do our research and make educated decisions because it is crucial that we do not allow more, the biggest establishment in rhinos. A name only politicians into. Places of power, appreciate you. Listen, get out and vote. That is where our power lies as a people is that because once they get in there, it's hard to get them out. So vote, vote, vote. When your time comes, make sure you vote, educate your kids. I just have one that's 19. This is going to be a second time around voting. Educate him, make sure they understand who they're voting for. We have to bring up the young people behind this as well. So this is an important time. We have an opportunity to, to try and take what we've learned and, and make a significant change in the. Of the, of America. So I appreciate you listening. Hope you have a great we can and share this podcast. Like it, give it five stars, do anything, just, you know, get it out there. And you know, hopefully true. Social's going to be coming out soon and we can be on that as well and start getting the information out. So just share it everywhere. Y'all and I appreciate it. Take care and have a great day.
