It occurs to me that it may be helpful to readers of my blog to understand why I believe what I write and how I came to have these beliefs.
I think I was 16 years old and asked my father how one decides what to look for in political figures as a way of determining which party to support and ultimately cast my vote for. Now, it’s important to understand that politics was rarely a topic of conversation in the household of my youth. My father told me to simply follow the money. Now as an adult I realize this was an overly simplistic answer. My father watched the five o’clock news religiously…at the time almost everyone did. Did this mean my father was actually informed on issues or was he just satisfied that he had some information? It wasn’t until I was in my mid-forties that I found out that during that period he identified as a Democrat. I followed his advice and became a Republican.
I came of age during the Reagan administration and became a fan immediately. I was in the military during his time in the Whitehouse and saw the way it should be done. That’s not to say I agreed with everything he did but Reagan entered the Whitehouse with an agenda and doggedly pursued his vision for the US and the way we fit into the world. Speaking of Reagan, have you noticed how the Dems are constantly referring to Reagan now? I think they realize they need someone to site. They used to quote JFK but have come to the realization that if a DEM were to reference the “Ask not what your country can do for you” speech the liberals would explode.
Over the years I have seen Washington become a cesspool. Unfortunately, I don’t mean only the Democrats. I have looked at this from every angle I can think of and have come to the realization that it is mostly the peoples’ fault. The average person in this country is woefully uninformed about how their government is supposed to act and treat them. Civics is no longer taught in schools so people pretty much accept their government officials as is and figure this is just how it is. Wake up sheeple! Our government is supposed to be our stewards. They are supposed to be in Washington to look out for us and our rights. Instead, they are just there to line their pockets from the taxes we pay and pass laws mostly intended to further that end. We, The People, need to start holding our government to a higher standard and our elected officials to an even higher standard. Look at it like this, if we wouldn’t approve if our family and friends acted self-serving and contrary to what is best for our group we would hopefully hold them to task so why give the people we have elected to look out for all of us the right to act totally against our interests?
I certain group of very powerful people has decided that we should help everyone in the world attain the same level of success through sharing the wealth of those who have worked, often for generations, to gain what they have with those who for whatever reason have not gained that success. I have compassion and I’m not wealthy but I have worked and sacrificed to have what I have and be who I am. I do not believe in just handing over the fruits of that sacrifice. There are originations within this country who believe that we should share everything, our land, wealth, and technology with others. Many of these groups do not have their origins in this country and certainly do not have our countries interests at heart. They gain their power and money by speaking of worldwide, compassionate democracy yet their actions are anything but democratic. They manipulate our government to use our tax dollars to fund Socialist causes and interfere with democratically elected governments around the world to subvert their governments by counting on those people being just as ignorant as we seem to be.
Some people in this country and around the world are not ignorant. We see what they are attempting. We have the ability to put at least some of the pieces together and we don’t like what we see.
In future posts, I will be showing just who THEY are and how they spread their ideology. I will discuss George Soros and his Open Society Foundations, Globalization, The Club of Rome, climate change and how it is being used to push a socialist agenda.
It’s not too late for us to educate ourselves but more importantly, now that we have a Republican Congress and Whitehouse we need to educate our elected officials and show them how to see the light.
Enjoy the ride people! It will be bumpy at times but with work, we will get it done.
