Shadows of history

shadows

 

It has been said that if mankind do not learn from history then they are doomed to repeat it.  As I watch events happening in our nation today I see history screaming at us to learn and listen yet we keep turning a deaf ear to its pleas.

  1. Government over reach into the lives of citizens.

People want to think that the Civil War was all about slavery.  It was not.  A major factor in the start of the Civil War and the secession of the South was due to a sense of over reach by the federal government.  The federal government was being seen as telling the States what they could and could not do.  Our government needs to learn from history.  There are many counties and states that are already seeking secession.  This administration has given every appearance as seeking civil war in order to be able to invoke martial law.

  1. Proliferation of the gay agenda

Remember Rome?  The Roman Empire was the greatest empire on earth.  There was extreme open corruption and the forcing of the gay agenda upon the populous.  As the morals of the Roman Empire ended so did the Empire.

  1. Push to remove firearms from the general populous

Where do I begin?  Every time this has happened in history it has not ended well.  From China, old Russia, Nazi Germany, and the list can go on but every time the citizenry has been disarmed with the promise that the government would protect them the government moved in under a dictator and slaughtered the masses.

  1. Centralization of power to the federal government

The first thing Hitler did was to centralize the power under the federal government.  From health care to banking everything was under the final authority of the main government.  This never has ended well for the people.  People need to remember that ultimate power corrupts ultimately.  Never should the federal government have all the power.  This is why our Forefathers limited the power of the federal government and gave the true power to the States.

  1. Push of the Islamic ideology

This is not a anti-anything statement.  It is a historical fact.  The nations where Islam has been forced upon the people has never ended well for the people.  Throughout time it is easy to see the nations which were once free and open becoming closed and brutal as Islam becomes the accepted form of life.  Islam and radical Islam knows that America has a freedom of religion.  They are using this right and freedom against us.  Freedom of religion is good but when other people use that freedom to dominate and destroy life it is no longer a religion but a corrupt and evil lifestyle which must be stopped.

  1. Open corruption in politics

Corruption in politics has become a standing joke so much that even slot games have taken up the banner.  The problem is that corruption in politics is no laughing matter.  Our government has become so that the elected leaders are no longer trusted.  This is a well-earned response from the general population because our elected leaders have, for the most part, become nothing more than bought and paid for mouthpieces for a particular ideology.  Our elected leaders have majorly abandoned the people for whom they are to represent and do nothing more than push a political agenda.  The people know that they are no longer represented by our elected leaders.  Up to know the people have had the vote to fall back upon to respond to the corruption.  But more recently the corruption in politics has been attacking the sanctity of the vote.  Once the corrupt leadership removes the power of the voting ballot they leave the populous with no other choice but outward rebellion with which to make political changes.

  1. Sense of superiority of the elected/elite and of being above the law

Our political elite need to remember history.  Throughout time as the elected and governing elite begin to feel a sense of superiority over the people and a sense of being above the very laws they enact the people have eventually rose up to demand changes.  Many times these changes have not been peaceful.  I never want to see violence in our streets.  But as our elected elite start seeing the people as nothing more than piggy banks and peasants then they leave the people no choice.  Our elected leaders must read history.  It is the rights of the people to demand that our leaders understand that they work FOR the people and not the other way around.

 

This administration has done more to destroy America than any other country, nation or force before in history.  America is on a dangerous route and it begins at the top.  Our elected leaders must, and I repeat MUST find enough of something inside of them to demand change within themselves.  Either our elected leaders change and begin to demand a forgotten element called ethics from within their own ranks or the clock is ticking on a very dangerous timeline.

This is my conclusion of current events.  This President seems to have had an agenda of civil war since he began.  He wants to ‘radically transform’ America.  His advisors are proud of their efforts to make America into an Islamic country.  He has had every intention to make America into an Islamic country.  Our media has failed the people by not investigating this man.  He also has all appearance of being an extreme racists.  Our Congress has, for the most part, become comfortable in a job and not service.  Our Congress has abandoned the people for the sake of ‘parties’.  The Democrats in Congress have, for the most part, seem to have taken the idea that they must advance the agenda of the President at all cost to the people.  They have become nothing more than puppets and have abandoned their oaths to the Constitution.  The Republican Party has all appearance of having leadership that has given up leadership for the idea of playing political ball.  No one is held accountable.  Our veterans are dying in the streets while outsiders are given housing and massive benefits.  Right has become wrong and wrong has become right.  The people are waiting and hoping that our elected leaders will eventually get their heads out of their butts and make needed changes.  But our elected leaders need to do something quickly.  Remembering the first part of this conclusion, I personally believe that it has been the agenda of this administration to create civil war.  If there are not peaceful changes made quickly, the timeline that has been forced upon this country by this administration will take over.  There will be major bloodshed by governmental supporters and forces which are presently taking sides and it will be completely due to something this administration has forced upon the people.  I pray that I am wrong but I can easily see many Americans dying at the hands of this administration as it forces its ‘radical transformation’ upon the people.  I only hope we make it to the next election with enough of a country intact to make a difference.

Where will it all end

Anyone who has had kids is very familiar with the famous line: Are we there yet? This usually begins approximately 15 minutes after the car begins to move and continues throughout the entirety of the trip. They are interested not so much in the trip but when they are finally going to get where they are going so that they can get out of the car. For the past seven years the liberals, progressives and socialists have taken America for a ride. There are two questions which are looming: When will it end and where will it end. Masquerading as Democrats socialists, liberals and Anti-American progressives have taken America for a ride and have infiltrated every aspect of our government. The America that gives more money, food, and assistance to any nation in need has been demonized and basically allowed to rot while those whose primary objective is to destroy America and the American way of life has been uplifted. I see things happening in my country today that it is with a sincere since of extreme caution that I ask the question where will it all end.

The media appears to have basically been bought and paid for by the liberal and progressive in our country. So much of the news is nothing of substance when it comes to our government and what is happening behind the scenes. I can see what is happening in an auto accident but I cannot do investigative journalism. The media has done more investigative journalism on Ben Carson in the past few months than they have done on Barack Obama over the past 7 years. No one seems to even care anymore where Obama was during the hours that Benghazi was being attacked and Americans murdered. No one seems to view it as important that Obama has yet to provide a birth certificate that a first year forensic analyst is not able to shred as a fraud. No one seems to care that Obama was listed as a foreign student in college. No one seems to ask where are the documents which shows either that he kept the name Obama while adopted by his step father or that he legally changed it back to Obama which would make his oath of office to have been issued in a fraudulent manner. Why do these things matter? These things matter because of the Constitution. If the Constitution can be destroyed then America falls. It is the Constitution which has kept America safe from the same actions which plague so many other countries. People have grown so cold toward the Constitution that we now have two out spoken socialist running on the Democrat ticket who have openly shown disdain for the historic American way of life.

Under the present administration race relations have been set back a good 40 years. The Super Bowl was more a recollection of the Olympics of 1968 than it was a display of talent and beauty. The middle class has been more targeted than helped as they reel under both taxes and fees now set upon them by Obamacare. No one warned anyone about the ‘subsidies’ also being taxed prior to one’s income being taxed. Under the present administration our country faces the threat of being forced to accept untold numbers of Islamic terrorists under the label of refugees. These people are supposed to be ‘vetted’ by the government but the government has yet to even vet itself. As a concealed carry permit holder I have been vetted more time than probably our President.

Where is it going to end? America has been put on the wrong side of history. Russia now is the liberator of the oppressed by America either turns her back or supports the oppressor. Why is America even in Syria? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? ISIS is the child of much of the ‘interference’ in Syria originally formed as a rebel group to fight the present leadership. How did ISIS get so many US trucks and equipment? How did so much of the dropped aid fall ‘accidentally’ into the hands of those butchering Christians and selling women and children into slavery? Our ‘black lives matter’ people are not upset with slavery. They are upset because they do not get their way and want an excuse to support their ‘poor me’ mentality. If they were upset over slavery then they would be on the front lines against ISIS who supports slavery to this day.

My conclusions are uncomfortable. It is up to the American citizenry to protect America. Our government has sold us out to their ideology. In our present direction there will be violence in our streets to levels never seen before. In our present direction there will be terrorism done in the name of Islam basically protected by our government so that the only true protection a person has would be that which they carry on their person. In our present direction our law enforcement will not be able to keep up with situations and our government will continue to hamstring the officers to become more ‘peaceable’ and ‘tolerant’. In our present direction the historic American way of life will be nothing more than a footnote in history unless people purpose to keep it alive. In our present direction freedom of speech will be determined as to whether or not someone of a protected group is offended. In our present direction freedom of religion will be determined permissible only if every religion is willing to pay homage to Islam. In our present direction the Constitution will die. I, for one, cannot permit these things to happen. I will speak out even if uncomfortable and labeled racists. I will never honor a ‘gun free zone’ because I love my family too much and those around me. I will speak out against a government which is clearly out of control. I will use all means possible to get the message out. I, for one, want my America back!

I see stupid people

stupid people

I try to be careful of my terminology.  I do not always succeed but I try.  I use the term ‘stupid people’ on purpose.  I believe anyone who gets up and promotes an idea or cause who does not fully understand that idea or cause fits the category.  I heard an interesting comment regarding Hillary Clinton and Sanders.  The comment was that they were not Democrats; they were not capitalist, but that they were Socialist.  Do people even know what being a Socialist means?  Socialisms say that the average person does not work for themselves.  According to Socialism the average person works for the government.  It is the government which decides what people need and want.   It is the government which is the ultimate authority.  If you understand history it was the King of England that had this idea.  According to the colonialist days England it was the king that had all the power.  Your house was only yours as long as the king did not want that house.  People are supporting an idea which strips them of all authority and autonomy over their lives without even realizing what they are supporting!

Socialism does not work.  You eventually run out of other’s money.  As long as people know that the government will take care of them there is no motivation to change or to be active.  As long as people know that the government can and will take anything of theirs that the government wants there is no motivation to advance.  It has been capitalism which built this nation.  It is capitalism why people have migrated to America for centuries.  People come to America because they believe hard work will make a better future.  But people are voting between two candidates that hold a strong philosophical view that completely rejects that concept.  I actually wonder if Sanders and Clinton even truly know what they are promoting.  Socialism is fine as long as you are the one in power making the choices.  Once money runs out Socialism demands that if things continue to be provided that it is rationed.  There is no other option.  Remember in the USSR how food and gasoline was rationed?  Communism is basically just another form of Socialism.  If anything Socialism is the baby brother of Communism.

I do not know about anyone else but I do not want to work for the government.  It is bad enough how much our present government taxes the average person.  Our present administration has been pushing Socialism with its land grabs, EPA demands which are able to force the coal industry into oblivion and fine people for having a man-made pond on their property.  Our government and these so called ‘leaders’ need to wise up.  The people are getting fed up and just like under George Washington they are taking up arms against those who are trying to take away they is not theirs to take.  I am not saying that what happened in Oregon was right or wrong but it is an event putting the government on notice.  It also shows how little our government views the average person.  If you stand against the government be prepared to die.  It is difficult to say this but unfortunately it is true.  I also find this especially true it seems when there is a democrat/socialist in office.  I remember Ruby Ridge and Waco.  Both ended in crisis where people took at stand, right or wrong, against what they viewed as an oppressive government.  The government officials gave the word to ‘end the conflict’.  Oregon was another event where the government ‘ended the conflict’ with the death of one of the participants.  Now I am probably the last one to condemn a police officer who must kill someone in the line of duty.  But with the vast array of tactics which were at the availability of the officials on hand there seemed to have been multiple other means to end the conflict other than killing one of the so called ‘rebels’.  Maybe that is the problem.  People who opposed what they see in the government as oppression are simply deemed as ‘rebels’ or worst as ‘terrorists’ and deemed worthy of death.  It is interesting that our government labels these people as ‘terrorists’ and are more than willing to exterminate them yet when Islamic terrorists starts killing Americans in large numbers the government seems to hunker down in a protective mode defending them as simply needing job opportunities.

This election, if we make it that far, is critical for many reasons.  Our government is way out of control.  There have been things happening under this administration that has never been permitted in the past.  Our Congress must bear some of the blame because no one seems to want to reel in our president and his administration.  I have never seen such high levels of corruption in government as there is presently.  People are tired of it and are fed up.  Many in law enforcement realize this and also read the tea leaves as they are speaking up saying how they will not enforce unconstitutional laws.  They are realizing that the people have a right to be fed up because of the government over reach of power.  I have never seen such an anti-American government before in my life.  In my studies of American history I have never heard of such an anti-American government in the history of this nation.  No one wants civil discord and especially civil war on our soil.  But this seems to be the goal of this administration.  This administration seems to be wanting to create an environment where their Islamic refugees can infiltration and set off the powder keg which they have created.  I can only hope that our military will be wise enough to realize the reality of the situation.  I hope that there are enough leaders in the military which will support the Constitution of the United States over a corrupt government.  It is coming where people will have to choose between obeying orders or doing what is right according to the US Constitution.

American priorities

priorities

When I was a practicing counselor I dealt with some very serious issues and was known to be blunt especially when there was very little time to waste.  I remember telling a couple of my clients:  See that wall ahead of you?  Run real hard and fast into it and see if the jolt can dislodge your head out of your butt!  America needs to find a wall to run in to.  I read the news and find what is important is whether so and so wore something inappropriate somewhere.  I hear arguments whether the Democrats or Republicans are better for America like we are electing a party and not an ideology in leadership.  I hear words coming out of the mouths of some of our elected officials and really want to ask them if any of their mother’s children lived just to see if they could follow my sentence.  America must get their priorities together!

We have the government funding Planned Parenthood, an organization which appears to have been caught selling baby parts for profit.  We have the government supporting by the billions countries which are trying to kill us.  We have our government giving supplies to people we do not even know and are then surprised when they are being used by ISIS.  We have veterans who are sleeping under bridges while our government is providing free housing for ‘refugees’ they are bringing in by the thousands.  We have State counties going broke because they are spending billions on people coming into this country through the back door while American children remain in need.  We have a president spending tens of millions in vacations and travel to raise money for a political party while saying the government does not have any money to give to needed causes.  We have a president ordering that a cross be hidden while speaking at a Christian university so as not of offend anyone while speaking at a Mosque with no objections.  We have schools expelling elementary children because he ate one side of his pop-tart first which made it look like a gun while cancelling holiday celebrations because they do not want to offend the Muslims.  I could go on but does anyone else out there see a problem here?  Does anyone else out there scream:  WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY COUNTRY?!?

 

I do not claim to be some great mind able to tell the future of political science.  But I am a person with a little commonsense who listens and observes.  Our nation must change its present course if we are to remain a free and open society.  If a person is not alarmed it is because they are not paying attention.  Ask yourself how much tax do the working people pay today?  We have two outspoken Socialists running on the Democrat side.  Whether we like to believe it or not, all those free things the Socialist promise must cost someone something.  It means higher taxes.  This means the average person is no longer truly working for himself but rather working to support the government.  The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money and things start getting rationed.  This includes everything from medical care and supplies to food.  But the only ones never affected by rationing are the elite and the political power sources.  Anyone who wants to argue this point simply needs to look at other countries that have gone full Socialist and you see its effects.  Does anyone else remember the long lines for bread in the USSR?

Right now, and it pains me to say this, America is on the wrong side of history.  We have stopped kissing the face of freedom and have gone to kissing the butts of the few.  We are supporting the rebels in Syria and probably cannot say intelligently why.  In supporting the rebels our government has helped to create ISIS.  If these are the people we are supporting someone needs to ask why we are continuing.  Christians are being slaughtered by the droves at the hands of ISIS while our government worries about insulting the Muslims.  Our government has lied to the people so many times and has gotten so openly corrupt that ‘lying’ and ‘corrupt’ have become synonymous with government officials.   We have racist groups doing everything possible to remove history.  These groups have nothing to do with supporting ‘black’ people.  These groups refuse to acknowledge history and the large numbers of black men who proudly and freely fought in the Confederacy.  We have a government and legal system which seems to be the best that money can buy and people such as Hillary Clinton who are running free even though there has been enough evidence against her and that she has been found in so many lies that a regular person would have been put UNDER the prison and not just IN the prison.  Race has become more important than achievement and being gay or transgender makes a person a hero.

If we make it to the election, America must vote for someone who gets America back on the right track.  Personally, I do not know nor care who that is but one thing for sure is that it will not be found in an ideology of free giveaways.  America must get back to supporting our military and our veterans before newcomers.  America must get back to kissing the face of freedom and kicking the butts of the freeloaders.  America must get back to not bothering with the issues of those who demand ‘safe space’ to not have to hear anything they do not approve of and return to allowing people be offended and learning to deal with matters personally.  America must stop funding those countries who are trying to kill us and start putting that money to work at home building a strong economy which provide opportunities.  America must stop believing ‘the enemy of our enemy is our friend’ and start seriously asking who we are actually supporting militarily.  Additionally, when our military is deployed we must be allowing them to do their jobs WITHOUT LIMITATIONS AND HAMSTRINGING THEM.  If they are sent to kill the enemy, let them kill the enemy!

I love my country.  I want it around for a long time.  At the present pace we are in real risk of losing what our Forefathers fought to create.  I am at risk of losing why many of my ancestors fought to create.  I am at risk of losing what many of my ancestors fought over the years to keep.  Our leaders, both present and future, must find a wall and run head long into it to see if it can dislodge their heads from their backsides.  If America does not start getting leadership that actually puts America and Americans first and commonsense back in leadership, we will lose the precious nation we have enjoyed and liberty will become just another thing rationed out along with the gasoline and potatoes.

Bridge out ahead

bridge out

 

I have had people ask me why I write and what my purpose is for my blogs.  My purpose in writing is not so much to get people to agree with me but rather to get people to think.  I am a permanently disabled individual.  So my working days are over.  So are my scrapping days.  But I see time coming ahead of us that unless there are significant changes made in this country we are all in for trouble.  The purpose for my writing is to get people asking questions regarding where our country is headed.  People are sitting idly by while our nation is like a locomotive heading towards a bridge that is no longer there.  This upcoming election is not something that can be capsulized into Democrat or Republican.  It is much more than a party.  There is an ideology that has been killing America.  Socialism never has worked in the past because you eventually run out of other people’s money.  Communism never has worked because the human element demands greed and power and whenever a select few is given power over the masses tyranny results.  The only thing which has worked in the past has been Capitalism.  But the greatest foes to Capitalism are those who do not want to work for a living yet feels justified to demand everything.

When I try to discuss issues with our present government and the threats it is presenting to the American way of life I am reminded of the theme from the old movie ‘Love Story’ with ‘Where do I begin’.  We have career politicians many of whom need to be fired.  I cannot believe some of the things that they say:  ‘We must pass the law in order to find out what is in the law’; ‘I stand before Congress a freed slave (now unless she was 175 years old I rather doubt this statement’; ‘Murder is the highest form of homicide in America’; and we can never forget how Guam was going to tip over because of the presence of the US Navy.  Except for a few years ago when Boehner began Congress with the reading of the Constitution I doubt that many of our Congress persons ever looked at one.  We have sweetheart deals and pork fed bills with billions being shipped to country who want to kill us, back room agreements and under the table payments.  The only thing that seems like is keeping Hillary Clinton from being indicted is Barack Obama and the only thing keeping him from being indicted seems to be Hillary Clinton.  We are being lied to on such a regular basis that it has become equated with politics.

There is an immigration and ‘refugee’ program being forced upon the nation that is all but guaranteed to break the system.  While somehow the government can find billions for all these people, our veterans remain homeless and stuck in an antiquated medical system where people are still dying while waiting to be seen by doctors.  Our old and those who live off of the social security system they have paid into all their lives appear to be seen as a hangnail on the finger of the government as the meager payments received do nothing to keep up with the staggering rages of goods, services and inflation.  We have a president who seems unashamed to promote to wonders of Islam while refusing to acknowledge the very existence of Islamic terrorism.  Nation after nation, country after country are coming to the basic conclusion that our president is the greatest threat to America and clearly has an agenda to destroy it while also wondering why the American people cannot see this reality.

If America is to continue to where our children and grandchildren are to have even a remote concept of the land of the free there are some things what must happen:

  • Anyone with any character and who still believes in the Constitution in Congress must step up and be heard. DEMAND TO BE HEARD!  If Clinton has deceived Congress then demand an accounting to which she is held responsible.  If Obama has lied the same thing applies.  Stop protecting Islam and start protecting Americans.  Start acting upon the oath of defending the Constitution which was taken at the beginning.
  • Anyone in law enforcement must decide which they will choose when it comes down to duty verses obedience. Remember that ‘I was just following orders’ did not work during the Nuremburg Trials and will never defend those who act contrary to the Constitution.  Will you enforce anti-Constitutional laws, edicts and executive orders?
  • Anyone who can legally carry a firearm needs to do so. The only thing that will stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun.  Feinstein needs her head examined if she truly thinks that once a bad guy realizes that no one is fighting him/her or that they have killed enough people that they will surrender.  America has had war thrusted upon its shores regardless whether our politicians want to admit it.  The attacks upon innocent people are not going to suddenly stop.  But it is fairly safe to assume that as they realize that they are not going to have the same free duck shoot that they have had in the past that things will improve.
  • Anyone who is going to vote must demand of your candidate to be clear where he or she stands regarding the Constitution, Bill of Rights, truth to the American people, American welfare and safety, and Capitalism. We cannot survive any more socialistic leadership.  If these people do not believe in America and the American way of life they why in the name of all that is good did they ever get involved in politics.  Based upon the past few years, if America gets saddled with any more of this mentality there will not be an America with any vague resemblance to its greatness of the past for the future.
  • Anyone who wants to see America survive MUST VOTE. I am amazed at the stupidity of people who say if this or that person gets the Republican nomination they are not going to vote.  How dare you!  Do you honestly think that you are making anything any better by not voting?  You might as well vote for the socialist who is trying to destroy America on the other ticket.  It would be nice if there were a Democrat running who was not running on a plan to bankrupt this nation and turn it into something totally opposite as to what it has been in the past.  But this is not an option.

We are not playing a game.  We are not acting like children playing house.  We are at a major decision point in our nation’s history even greater than when our Founding Fathers were deciding to break free from England and the king.  With the wrong person in the White House America will become close to a third world country with constant riots, anarchy, mayhem, murder, and martial law.  We will have not even a vague resemblance to what our Forefathers penned at the birth of this nation.  Elvis Presley had a sound entitled ‘It’s now or never’.  The same applies if we are to keep our nation alive.
