In private email I got this msg: “If I wanted political bull shit, I’d turn on TV.. I just unsubscribed!”
It’s the first email I received with the sentiment, but don’t we know… for every man who speaks up, there’s a hundred thinking it, and it’s a fact that participation drops when it gets political..
This is most likely my last political post..
As of this date, if you are undecided as to whom you’ll vote for, you might be needing a good and intensive mental exam same as Joe.
I’ve made political posts for one reason, and I think Dr. Ileana Johnson makes a great summary of those reasons. She came here to escape the brutalities inflicted on the people in her homeland, she knows first hand how it happened. A leader same as Obama started by dividing the people, pitting one group against another. This was followed by increasing the taxes on the so called rich, and later confiscating their land and giving it to people loyal to the leadership. (many here would love that, many here loved Joe’s performance in debate!)
With our modern tools, our government can distribute more wealth overnight than they once could in a year with our near paperless environment. What Happened in Ileana’s homeland took a few years, with modern tools, the same thing could happen here in a few weeks.
Of great interest to me, is how we Americans ignore the facts that President Obama’s vision of what America should be is failing all around us.. Europe is literally coming undone, those who are attempting to stop the bleeding are being demonized in Europe and here!
Right or wrong I’ve put up political posts because I >know< we are at a crossroads. Soon we will see what choices America makes. We are like an Island, we have been for many years. Will people here who have never lived elsewhere help destroy God Given rights and the Freedoms we have here? Maybe so..
But regardless of our direction, the DIYer will live the far more comfortable life, you can’t confiscate knowledge… but you can kill it as Pol Pot did..
Dr. Johnson’s latest post includes her experience of driving in her homeland on a recent visit. She rented a VW Jetta Diesel, fuel at $10 a gallon, and a need to bribe every person she needed services from. She notes the damage done by the free lunch program in her homeland.. and it will likely take generations to rebuild what a few years of ‘progressive’ rule.
For me, I can say I at least tried to warn my family and friends should we decide to take the easy road to hell, it’s far more than politics.. we are at the TEE in the road.
I’d like my grandchildren to enjoy the same freedom I was given.. a gift from all those who sacrificed before me, and now we see a society who demands gifts, and knows that it is their right to receive them. There’s no way I couldn’t share, but like I say, minds are already made up, so future posts will be about how we DIYers go forward with whatever voters choose..
