This past weekend we lost one of our Ruidoso Treasures with the death of Mr Harvey Twite.
Harvey was not only a great Republican but a great communicator and a great Patriot. I had the honor to work with Harvey on the Department of Defense ESGR radio program. This program was broadcast throughout the state of New Mexico.
Other states throughout the country called to find out how they could produce one of their own. Harvey took on this endeavor to help get the word out on what our military actually does for this great country. He did this never asking for anything in return. Harvey's shoes will never be replaced we will miss him for all of the many great attributes that he had and for his service to our country. Harvey you will be sorely missed.
On Behalf of the Republican Party of Lincoln County.

Common Sense: Sound judgment derived from experience!
Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them
are entitled to them! They were paid for and earned by the recipients...
We should stop calling Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nausea entitlements. They are
taxpayer-funded handouts, and shouldn't be called entitlements at all !!!
Darn it! I guess common sense just isn't that common.?

It's About Time The Border Crisis Is Finally Recognized As The Crisis At Our Border... A Broad Consensus Has Formed That The Crisis Needs To Be Addressed
AFTER WEEKS OF DENIAL BY DEMOCRATS AND MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA, THERE IS NOW A WIDESPREAD AGREEMENT THAT THERE IS A CRISIS AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER
For weeks, Democrat Presidential candidates, along with members of the media, refused to acknowledge there was a border crisis with outlets like The Washington Post and The New York Times calling the border crisis "false and untethered from truth and reality." Now, with apprehensions at the border already over 500,000, The Washington Post, The New York Times , and even the Obama Administration's Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson have been forced to acknowledge the crisis at the border.
The New York Times Editorial Board called for Congress to give President Trump money to secure the border and The Washington Post reported the percentage of Democrats who see a border crisis jumped 17 points since January.
DESPITE THEIR CURRENT RADICAL RHETORIC, DEMOCRATS ONCE SUPPORTED ENFORCING OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS Over the past months, Democrats have advocated for extreme border positions including tearing down existing fencing along the southern border, disbanding ICE, and opposing President Trump's National Emergency declaration for border security. In the past, Democrats including notable party leaders like Sen. Chuck Schumer and former Vice President Joe Biden supported many of the proposals for which the Trump Administration is currently advocating. Former Vice President Joe Biden supported jailing employers who hired illegals, said "sanctuary cities shouldn't be allowed to violate federal law," and argued a fence was needed to stop "tons of drugs from corrupt Mexico."
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called hiring foreign workers "a war against the middle class and the American worker." Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) called America a "welfare system" for Mexico and stated that "the people who should be here are those that come legally" Prominent Senate Democrats, including current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sens. Biden, Obama, Clinton, and Feinstein all voted for the Secure Fence Act which authorized the building of 700 miles of physical barriers along the Southern Border.

Food For Thought!
If Democrats don't want foreigners involved in our elections,
why do they think it's all right for illegals to vote?
I've got to quit thinking!

Top Democrats Are Failing The World On Venezuela.
The Facts: DESPITE THE ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY THE MADURO REGIME, LEADING DEMOCRATS REFUSE TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S VENEZUELA POLICY
Under Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela has suffered through the worst human rights crisis in its history, and a consistent erosion of democracy in the country. Following the recognition of Juan Guaid as interim President of Venezuela, Maduro has responded with violence and widespread detentions. Despite the atrocities committed by the Maduro regime, national Democrats continue to oppose the recognition of Juan Guaid as interim President and have called for the Trump Administration to end its support for Guaid, Venezuela's legitimate president.
NATONAL DEMOCRATS UNWILLINGNESS TO SUPPORT THE PEOPLE OF VENEZUELA HAS NOT GONE UNNOTICED BY THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA The Trump Administration's Venezuela policy is highly popular in Florida and the President's decision to recognize Juan Guaid as Venezuela's interim President received widespread support across the state. Even Florida Democrats have echoed the President's policy and are highly critical of national Democrats' opposition to the Administration's Venezuela policy...
President Trump and the international community have been unwavering in their support for President Guaid. The United States is applying a high pressure campaign against the Maduro regime, and has sanctioned more than 100 Maduro cronies and enablers and also imposed major sanctions against Venezuela's state-owned oil company and major banks. The U.S. has made nearly 546 metric tons of humanitarian assistance available in the region, and, as of April 10th, 2019, delivered more than $213 million in humanitarian funding for the Venezuela regional crisis.

Food For Thought!
If only 11 million people have Obama-Care... how will 24 million people die if it is repealed?
Will an additional 13 million people be randomly whacked?
I've got to quit thinking!
