I Just Want My Dumb Life Back! That’s what the title of this article was…
Remember when we all had a dumb life where we just worked a little and could save money right away. Spend it. Enjoy good movies. Dine at nice restaurants. Travel? Play games on Facebook instead of using it to fight our government?
Well, I’m fighting for that dumb life back. I don’t know about you. It’s been great getting to know so many you, the finest people I’ve ever met, but I’m really irritated so much time has to be spent away from these simple pleasures that a great economy allows under responsible leadership. Instead, we are forced to be watch dogs for politicians and the vile creatures who own them who we are competing against. Our so-called leaders are acting worse than spoiled children who don’t understand what honesty, self-restraint and American principles are. We are not just citizens anymore, but the adults in the room that is our country.
Our GOPe has sold us out. I resent them for not doing their job as much as I love doing this one without pay. But make no mistake. This is not what a free society is about. We are supposed to NOT WORRY about our government or its officials as really free citizens. Keep an eye on them from time to time? Yes. Lose sleep over their shenanigans that undermine and diminish our quality of life? No.
I’m trying to keep things in perspective. Please don’t get me wrong. There is nothing more important than fighting for this cause, but I want my Dumb Life back. I’ve wanted it back since I started this process, back in 2011 when I selfishly posted comments to see if Sarah Palin would be encouraged to run for President. We all wanted “sudden and relentless reform” and the mantra was Run Sarah Run. I think I used that term once and realized immediately it was not going to be as easy as asking her to do so. The entrenched corruption of our GOPe – the Bushes, Rove, Fox to an extent, and the left would not suddenly be changed. So, no. Snapping our fingers and cheering all we could was not going to do a thing to change these matters which would take longer than over- night to fix, let alone by one person who magically would make them all go away.
Sigh. More work for us.
But that is maybe what God intended for us at this time.. sacrifice and service. And like new parents who have a child who had to let go of their freedom (and life) to make the life of their children better, we are forced to be better. I have from the start considered this an obligation, not a venue for making friends or having fun (although it has been both to an awesome degree!). I think it’s normal to not want to make this a 24/7 deal. I hope it doesn’t shock anyone, but freedom, to me, does not mean not being given a choice. Are we really free?
Here are some Random Clips from 2013 that I put together. I am using them to remind myself of the fun (and work) I’ve done, and in a way an attempt to tell a story about what I have seen happen. News is news. Stories are forever. It is disheartening GOP voters STILL do not understand that our establishment is against us, or don’t try to detect phonies who lie to them. Maybe a story will help.
The compilations include updates on last year’s headlines to show in part I was on the right track, and to encourage others to get on the right track as well, their way. I’m not here to tell anyone (who am I to do so?) what to do. The clips are long, so do as you wish as far as viewing it all at once or in spurts, or not at all.
Mock me, love me (yes), say I’m negative, or throw tomatoes. Say “whatever” and tune me out. It doesn’t matter because I’m a patriot on a mission and I will post again soon to say what I feel needs to be shared, sincerely hoping you appreciate and (even) enjoy what I’ve done. Your thoughts, opinions and reaction are extremely and radically welcome so I can do better in the future, as long as it doesn’t mean I have to be “nicer” with the “leaders” I intend to help expose.
It’s not been nice knowing you. It’s been AWESOME!
Thanks for all you’ve done to inspire me. Thank you Sarah. Ted. And so many patriots who work tirelessly and without complaint behind and on the scenes. So many are involved in local politics, too, and that is great! Game on, loaded bears!
