Are you late on your "Freedom is not free" payments?


Just a Politician

I've found the need to be a bit more honest with myself.

Definition of Denial:The willful suspension of disbelief. 

Many things are  "a given" in todays world. The III% concept is growing, finding it's stride. As a growing movement, the III% are finding that they are not as alone in their thinking as we have felt before - and we have a desire to be a part of this newfound "community of conscience". One of "the givens" is that desire to belong - to be part of the tribe. It is a normal human desire.

Another "given" - if it talks like a politician, makes promises like a politician, manipulates like a politician, obfuscates it's back-trail like a politician, and maintains  a web of impenetrable complexity to hide it's current actions behind....denial be damned, it is a politician.

I made the choice to remove the link to the III% Society from this blog because my "willful suspension of disbelief" has broken. When someone is trying to manipulate others - the interests being served are not  "the others" best interests - shit just does not work that way.

Friends and brothers: the only way the concept of the III% works is local, local, local. Get involved in building a tribe in your neighborhood. Take some lessons from the progressives modus operandi - get off your ass and get involved locally. Local school boards, county government, state government - just a neighborhood BBQ and talking is where it starts. Do the words "community organizer" mean anything to you? If not I will damned well suggest you look that concept up.

We, as Americans need no more politicians - we need public servants - not self serving politicians. We, as a part of the III% movement, also are in no need of politicians.

ALL real change happens from the bottom up - once the denial is broken and we get miserable enough to do whatever it takes to be free.
 

Speak now, shout it out, or forever hold your peace.

    Came over from Kenny’s place.
    Yeah, I got a wake up call also. Feels bad and good at the same time. Bad I was duped, good that I figured it out.
    I’ll try to make you a regular stop.
    Take care.

    • Thanks WiscoDave, glad to have you here. Hindsight is 20/20, hindsight with some pain is a good set of binoculars.

    I think I want to add that a good number of politicians also have criminal records!

  • Liberty or Not?

    "If you want to see the future, imagine a jackboot stamping on a human face forever."
    George Orwell

    That jackboot is human nature - so is the desire to be free to live our lives as WE wish. Resist tyranny. Oppose the oppressors.

    Liberty is man's natural desire; given as a gift from our creator. The creator also gave us the choice of fulfilling our responsibilities so that liberty may live, or to be so lazy that we let it die.

    Choose wisely.
