Please ignore the advertising slogan “What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas.” It’s not true. Las Vegas is the crossroads of America. What happens here is happening everywhere. So, I’ve uncovered the biggest liberal scam in America, going on right here in Las Vegas.
It revolves around my home community in Henderson. I live in exclusive Anthem Country Club. There are about 1500 beautiful homes behind the gates of Anthem. These homes are together worth around $1 billion dollars, in just one country club, in one Las Vegas suburb.
What’s the amazing appeal of Anthem Country Club? It’s got a big beautiful wall around it. And thick iron gates in front, protected by armed guards. The result? There is virtually no crime inside walled, gated, armed Anthem.
I’ve lived here for almost 17 years. My kids grew up here. They played outside every day from morning to night and I never worried for one moment. Because of the wall, the gates and the armed guards, my kids were as safe as if they lived in “Mayberry R.F.D.” Life is good behind the gates of Anthem.
In the rest of Las Vegas…not so much. In the rest of Vegas…lots of crime, lots of fear. Proving walls and gates and lots of armed guards are a good thing, if you want your family to be safe.
But wait. Anthem recently added a new feature to keep our residents safe. Every vehicle entering our gates must show government-issued photo ID. Anyone entering our community- guests, gardeners, maids, nannies, pool cleaners, handymen, plumbers, electricians, delivery persons- must provide state or federal government-issued photo ID, or they will be denied entry. Every single one of them.
There are many lessons we can learn from studying Anthem Country Club.
Lesson #1) If you want your family and children to be safe, BUILD A WALL. Preferably a wall that is also surrounded by armed guards. The Vatican understands this lesson. Mexico understands- because they have a wall on their Southern Border. Many rich liberals in America who live in gated communities, or gated private estates, or doorman buildings understand this lesson too. They just don’t want you to have a wall. They clearly think their children are more important than yours. They clearly think you’re stupid, as they argue walls and guns are unnecessary.
Lesson #2) Liberal Democrats are hypocrites. Guess who lives inside the protected walls of Anthem Country Club? Harry Reid. You know, your former United States Senator. The former chief water carrier and bottle washer of President Obama, who spent his entire Senate career fighting viciously against a wall. Harry argued walls were terrible and unnecessary things.
Harry could have retired anywhere in Vegas…or anywhere in America for that matter. But he chose to live behind the walls… and gates…and armed guards…and now photo ID required for entry…of Anthem Country Club. Harry is my neighbor! Welcome to the neighborhood. Can I bring a cake by?
But Harry, don’t liberals hate walls and gates and armed guards and photo ID? Don’t liberals call those things “racist.” According to liberals, aren’t those things meant to “discourage minorities from entering?” Yet here sits Harry Reid and the entire Reid clan. Interesting.
Lesson #3) The argument against Voter ID is a total scam.
How do all those gardeners and maids and pool cleaners and handymen drive through the gates of Anthem every day? The answer: they ALL already have government issued photo ID. So, I guess it’s a lie when liberal politicians claim poor people and minorities don’t have photo ID, or its too difficult for them to get, or its “racist” to ask them for it. I guess they all already have it. I guess they are thrilled to show it to earn a paycheck. Just not to vote. That would be “racist.”
I guess we just proved the liberal argument is a scam. Voter ID is an issue because liberals want election fraud. They can’t win without it. They want their voters to vote multiple times, with no questions asked. They want illegals to be able to vote by the millions for Democrats.
Folks, we’re being scammed. Anthem Country Club is the proof. What happens here, is happening everywhere.
