Votes

Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech,

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? (Proverbs 1:20)

Hello All,

It’s been made painfully clear to me, by many people, that my posts are too long. With that in mind I’ll be splitting up some of my topics into multiple posts, including this one. My hope is that it will make things a little easier to digest for those of you who are like me and have an attention span about as long as a pinky nail.  I’ll have all three  parts of this up by election day. I also want to take this time to thank those of you who have taken the time to read what I have to say. I sincerely appreciate it and hope you’re gaining something from it in one way or another.

 

Votes are their scoreboard. Along with campaign contributions, which are just insult to injury, votes are how they determine the following. How many people are still fooled into thinking they have a voice or representation. How many people still think there are anything but artificial differences between a republican and a democrat. That the same money and powerful people don’t control both of them. That abortion, immigration, religion, gun rights and a myriad of other issues aren’t just a smoke screen to keep you, the American people, distracted and divided. Votes are a measure of how much they’ve accomplished their goal of divide and conquer. How much they still have us fighting with each other, instead of fighting against what we all know, but choose to ignore, as the slickest most powerful liars in the country. How good of a job did their two actors do of causing resentment, separation and anxiety, sometimes amongst the closest of friends and family. How much time did they make us spend watching and talking about nothing? How much fake confidence did they make you feel in regards to your knowledge of politics or how this world works? How does it feel to know a lot about nothing? About this thing called “politics” that has as much impact on your life, as World of War Craft does in their customers lives. How much was your ego inflated as you talked to your friends about a world that will never impact yours? They got you!

They got me too! In a big way for a long time! I began following politics in high school when I was about 14 years old. I still remember debating with what grades implied were the smartest kids in the school. I lived in Sun Prairie, which for all intents and purposes is a suburb of the liberal capital of the Midwest, Madison. At the time, thinking that all liberals were weak and needed handouts really appealed to my make it on your own, survival of the fittest, my parents are in the toughest business in the world and we’re just fine mindset. I was really good, really articulate, and really effective at making people, including teachers not want to challenge me. I would relate the issues to the people I was talking to and their families. Why are they sitting in every class getting straight A’s, when at the same time they’re arguing for welfare and unions and tenured teachers? I concentrated on the social issues because I could always find one to bring into their own life and their whole argument and usually hypocritical points would crumble. Hypocritical political positions are still the norm in almost everyones life.  All they knew was the rhetoric and talking points and they never thought past them to the real world.  I watched conservative TV, listened to Rush, and railed against people on welfare and the poor. Even though I could win an argument, in reality, unbeknownst to me, it meant nothing to my life, their life or for that matter anyone’s life in this country, outside of less than one percent of the richest people.

Then in college my friend Mike asked me “How are you a republican and an atheist?” Between high school and college I was making that transition to becoming totally self-sufficient. I was breaking any ties the catholic church may have accidentally created between GOD and I. So this was the first time my political thoughts came in conflict with my thoughts about GOD. I quickly saw the republican party completely differently. I saw how the candidates manipulated what I saw at the time as a fake GOD’S word and people, and their feelings on a few social issues to create their base. It made me sick then and even more so now that I know our Lord and His children. I then started thinking about the issues. I realized that every society since the beginning of time has an underperforming class. Whether that’s due to laziness, ignorance, lack of opportunities, oppression, racism, slavery, crony capitalism,  bigotry, etc… I realized that you could either bring that lowest class up, which would help all of society or keep beating it down while they become an even bigger drain on this country.

I started feeling that intellectual superiority that most liberals feel over their apparently country bumkin counterparts. Even though I now know that many of those country bumkins have the only wisdom that matters and that’s GOD’S wisdom. I started feeling even more sorry for the poor religious people who without even knowing it were voting for people who were trying to destroy them (republicans) and still are (both parties are equally). I started explaining how ridiculous trickle down economics or tax breaks for the rich were to people. Asking them to help me understand how giving a multimillionaire a break on his taxes was going to create jobs. Did they really think that an extra $100,000 on top of $10 million was going to be the thing that pushed that person over the edge into building a new factory or adding jobs? Of course not, they were simply going to stock pile cash like every wealthy person does; only reinvesting when it will be profitable for them. There’s no altruism in trickle down economics I can guarantee you that.

So after 5 years of aggressive conservatism I was a raging liberal for fourteen years. Just like many things in my life it was great because I knew both sides. I knew what the republicans were going to throw at me before they even said it, exactly in the same way I understood what the Jesus freaks were going to say about my atheism.  I watched Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman and all the rest almost every night.  My entire life I’ve prided myself on never going from A to B and then back to A on any issue, topic or lifestyle change. Whether it was watching TV, being emotionally affected or idolizing sports, masturbation, eating well, not drinking pop, weed and alcohol, politics, etc… I’ve been on the both side of all of them but never went back.  I always pointed out and still believe that it was an indication of growth. That once I learned the truth regarding what I was wrong about, that truth held up, and still does. Many people like to say, “You change your mind so much or look at all the times you’ve been wrong”. I tell them that unless you’re changing or wrong, you were either born the smartest person on the planet, you’re not doing open-minded independent research or you’re insecure and afraid of change. You’re standing still. You’re high view of your intellect is holding you back, you’re afraid of what you don’t know, you’re pride and ego is preventing you from growth and admitting or finding your lack of wisdom. Switching directions in life and admitting that you weren’t as educated as you could’ve been, is a hard thing to do but the lack of it is very transparent. This concept of never going from A to B and then back to A again was fully intact until March 27th 2012. That is when GOD came and knocked me over the head with “A” the second time! This was the first time that I thought I was living the truth about something (GOD when I was young), and then was convinced I was wrong, but then had it (GOD) proved to me by GOD, that I was right in the first place.

The interesting thing about politics is there are no “A” and “B”. There is only make-believe, acting, manipulation and lies. There is only awake and asleep. Just like the movie I saw recently called “Cloud Atlas”, which by the way was solely made to give another plausible explanation of GOD, the same way The Matrix, The Grey and many more before it have. It’s purpose is to reinforce reincarnation and karma, destroy the idea of heaven (female slaves being tricked into thinking they’re being “exalted”, nice choice of pretty much an exclusively Biblical term BTW), mock prayer (yes they also really call it prayer) and just like everything the entertainment industry does either cloud the truth about GOD or confuse you so much that you don’t care to find the real truth and power of this world in Christianity! They know the truth better than anyone and their systematically trying to keep you from it.  “Cloud Atlas” says that truth is singular, that they are right about. And the truth about politics is that there is none.

There being no truth in politics is the reality that hit me square in the face in the months after Obama was elected. In the months leading up to the election I was watching MSNBC like a fiend. I was so filled with hope for this country. I seriously saw the high-speed rail that much lesser countries had enjoyed for years coming to our country. I saw a health care system that the rest of the world mocks, coming to an end. I saw the green movement taking off like we were in Switzerland. A smart grid, Internet access for everyone, electric cars, etc… All the things we should’ve been enjoying for years. All the things that every politician both republican and democrat, whether president or representative, whether federal or state, had an excuse for why it couldn’t be done, while a much lesser country in every measure like Switzerland and many more do it all.

 

I watched the president get elected with tears of joy and hope in my eyes. I went to Grant Park with hundreds of thousands of others, with even more tears and thoughts about how proud I was of our country for electing a black man that wasn’t a homophobe. I also thought the republican party was dead. I mean seriously in jeopardy of not existing. We had a filibuster proof majority in the Senate, a big majority in the House, the president, and a country that hated the republicans. For those of you who may not be politically savvy, this meant we could have passed that every person had to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at noon everyday. Total control and power, nothing could be done to stop the democrats from passing anything they wanted.

So the first item on the president’s desk was health care. I’m thinking we’re going to get the universal health care that he promised, like Switzerland, or at least single payer like France and the Netherlands. Even though those systems aren’t perfect, they’re leaps and bounds better than what we have here, and it’s clear the President knows this and is aggressively promising it. This is where my personal curtain fell as far as politics in this country was concerned. If you look back at the months following the election you will see an unprecedented amount of Senators either switching parties, retiring, quitting, resigning or changing their mind on what has been the lowest hanging fruit and most talked about issue at the time. A president that while saying he’s going to give the country back to Main Street is filling his cabinet with the same Wall Street thugs that almost destroyed this country (as you can see in the graphic) just as every president has since Reagan. A president that campaigned on universal health care and is now saying that he wants to negotiate and work with both sides of the aisle on the issue when he doesn’t have to. A president that we elected to pass universal health care and many other things, not negotiate on them.

Then finally it washed over me. The people who run this world, who are an extension of the devil, had made a rare misstep. GOD was going to make them scramble and show some of their cards. Hoping that His people would wake up to this game, but they haven’t. The power in this world underestimated how angry the nation was at Bush, while also underestimating how much we liked and had hope in Obama. They knew that Obama was going to win all along, that was never in jeopardy. They needed him to take the spotlight off the good ol’ boy system that had been running strong since the first Bush. Yes this includes Clinton. Its clear in the movie “Inside Job” from my previous post, that this corruption is on both sides of the aisle. They needed him so when nothing changed between Bush and Obama, the conspiracy wouldn’t be so obvious. And to top it all off, they now knew every black person was on their side even though they have been and always will be the ones who are hit the hardest by the people this country votes for. It didn’t matter how many blacks they kept out of work, dying in the streets or couldn’t feed their families. They needed a cover and just like everything else they weren’t leaving it up to chance. Bush was a sacrificial lamb, someone who could take our liberties at will, someone we would hate in the end but does it really matter now that we’re virtually slaves. Slaves to our jobs, slaves to the TSA, slaves to checkpoints, slaves to cameras, slaves to debt slaves to schooling that is becoming more and more worthless everyday.  The misstep was that even though they knew they could use their propaganda machine (TV, media, movies, newspapers, radio, etc….) to fix the vote to ensure a victory for Obama, they didn’t expect people to be so disillusioned with the entire republican party that they would vote democrat right down the ticket in such numbers.

They were left with what they feared the most. No excuse to keep things bogged down in politics and bureaucracy. A clear road to getting things done and improving the country with too much apparent power on one side. So now what? We can’t have health care reform, that would take too much money away from the insurance companies while improving millions of Americans lives. So we need to get rid of that filibuster proof majority in the Senate right away. So look back and see what calls were made to who and where the health care bill ended up and make your own decision. This is what was the break in the dam for me and that break has continued to this day until there is no dam left.

So how much time have you wasted talking about nothing? How much longer are you going to continue to be fooled? How much longer are you going to artificially inflate your ego being an expert on make-believe? I know it’s painful to admit that this society and the knowledge you have about it is an illusion but what’s the alternative? To keep living a lie? That’s the bet they’re making. That you have invested too much into this charade to admit you’re wrong. On a smaller scale that’s why books are their most powerful weapons. Because once you’ve spent a couple weeks reading a book, no one wants to admit it was in vein. Now expand that to every newspaper you’ve read, every article you’ve read and every news show you’ve watched. Are they right, do you have too much invested, too much pride, too fragile of an ego to start searching for truth?

 

They think they can keep us placated by keeping us entertained, fed and housed. Entertainment that continues to degrade our morals, food that continues to poison us and houses that keep us slaves to our jobs and away from our families.  Are they right? We’ll see by the number of votes, by the millions the disillusioned contribute to campaigns and by how much stress, anxiety and separation this election causes our nation.

There are only two issues that matter in this country, the economy and the military. The president unilaterally appoints the Fed chief who controls the economy and is also the commander and chief of the military and now thanks to Bush he can unilaterally go to war at any time and declare marshal law at any time for any reason. The president also unilaterally appoints Supreme Court justices. So in the end the President has all the power. Way too much according to the founding father’s original blueprint. So own the president, own the country. Better yet, own all of your representatives. If you get too greedy in one of the bubbles or get too greedy in manipulating the stock market (which is nothing but a way to steal the wealth of the American people through bubbles as was made clear by the first in the great depression) and the people get restless, they better watch out, watch out for marshal law, watch out for tear gas in their face just like on many campuses in the past couple years.

The country is controlled by money, and ultimately the military, and the president controls both. All the other issues, like abortion, gay rights, education, health care reform, stem cell research, etc… while very important, aren’t going to change anymore than the two that matter will. Education and healthcare reform will continue to be treated as second fiddle just as it has for fifty years. It’s all about tearing down this country and separating it from GOD. The other issues are just a smoke screen meant to keep us fighting and distracted. Republicans and democrats will always settle on the two issues that matter in the same place, at war or spending to get ready for it and in debt. Debt that is meant to weaken this country to the point of collapse so that one world government can step in and put in place one world currency.

America and it’s wealth, power, guns and Christianity have been the only thing standing in the way of this for the last thirty or more years. All the world leaders have wanted to do this but it takes time to make it seem like it just naturally happened. It takes time to destroy the most powerful and wealthiest; Christian based country in the world. It takes time to get those guns out of the hands of those pesky red neck Christians that are such a thorn in their plan. It takes time to get us used to xray scanners and cameras and checkpoints. It takes time to falsely make us believe that Islam is the enemy. That they have the ability to pull off 9/11 but nothing since. And then in turn use 9/11 to steal our freedoms and liberties. It takes time to systematically steal our wealth through the stock market, housing bubbles, debt to the unnecessary Federal Reserve and horrible fiscal and economic policy. They are an extension of the devil and they are as slick as it gets. Who are these people? The people who run the big banks, the people who own the newspapers, the people who own the entertainment companies, the people who own the insurance companies, the drug companies, the food companies, the TV stations and production companies that make the content. These people are an extension of a group even more powerful, who’ll I’ll leave up to you to chase down if you care enough about this country and GOD to find out.

The two things they don’t want us to talk about GOD and Politics just happen to be the most important things to understand. In the case of politics it’s not a matter of understanding whether to be a republican or democrat, it’s a matter of understanding that it’s a lie and that it’s being perpetrated to destroy the country you live in, the lifestyle you love, your children’s life and the reality that Jesus Christ is the only power in this world. I think this is a good time for two of my favorite quotes.

“IN A TIME OF UNIVERSAL DECEIT, TELLING THE TRUTH BECOMES A REVOLUTIONARY ACT” – GEORGE ORWELL, AUTHOR

“ALL TRUTH PASSES THROUGH THREE STAGES. FIRST, IT IS RIDICULED, SECOND IT IS VIOLENTLY OPPOSED, AND THIRD, IT IS ACCEPTED AS SELF-EVIDENT” – ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER, PHILOSOPHER.

Now I’d like to talk to my fellow Christians. Point me to politician that isn’t a liar. Not just kind of a liar, but a non-stop liar. Explain to me how you get anywhere in politics without lying through your teeth. But still you support someone who didn’t just get somewhere; he got to the republican nomination? Why, because he espouses some fake commonality between your beliefs and his? Are you really this naïve? The fact that Romney acts like he carries those beliefs and calls himself a Christian and then lies through his teeth is worse than Obama supporting abortion and not following any of his supposed beliefs.

Don’t you see what they did to Bush and what Bush purposely did to himself? They hold Bush up as the Christian, get all of the Bible thumpers to support him blindly and then tear him down. When Bush fails as president, as a Christian, what does that say about GOD? It says exactly what they want it to say, that indirectly there is no such thing. That He has no power. What does it say about all the Christians who blindly supported him? Some like to tell me that at least there is someone in the White House saying that abortion is wrong and that’s better than nothing. I say that’s not true if the person at the end of his term is hated by everyone and has no credibility. Or during his term doesn’t hold to any of his promises as every candidate has done in the last thirty years. That the words the supposed Christian speaks on abortion become worthless just as planned when that supposed Christian becomes worthless.

Does it make you feel accomplished to vote for the pro-life candidate? Like you did your part? I’m sure it does and that is also by design. It soothes your conscience from not really doing anything about it. About not really doing GOD’S work. You wasted your time supporting, campaigning and arguing for what you thought was the choice for Christians and for unborn babies. Well I’m here to tell you that you did more harm than good in so many way I can’t even count. You want to make change, go stand in front of clinics and try to have discussions with the young women who are about to make the biggest mistake of their life. I didn’t say picket or yell or do anything other than wait and hope that you can talk one girl out of it as thousands of real Christians do everyday.

You want to make change? Start doing GOD’S work. Arguing and campaigning and politics have nothing to do with GOD’S work. GOD’S work revolves around bringing people into His Kingdom, spreading His Kingdom, spreading His Word and helping the weakest of His. Professing to everyone around you that you’re a Christian and everything you have is from your Father. Voting is not GOD’S work, it’s tearing it down, as I’ve made clear. So I challenge all of you to ask yourself what have you done more of this year, GOD’S work or Mitt’s work. Have you spent more time in the Bible or on Faux News? Have you spent more time listening to Rush or arguing with friends or going to church? Have you posted more about a guy you know nothing about or the amazing things GOD has done in your life? Stop allowing yourself to be subverted, mislead and fooled. As Christians you have one job and that is to move His kingdom forward. Anything else is of the flesh and of this world. Anything else is for your own ego and pride. As Paul said “Faith without works is dead” James 2:20. As Paul says in the same verse “even the demons believe and tremble” or even the most evil people fear GOD but it doesn’t make them Christians. We’re judged by our fruits, by what we produce, by our work! If you truly understood what GOD did for us on the cross you wouldn’t be able to help but do works! You’d study GOD’S word until you understood so clearly that it would be burning inside you to do His work. Belief is nothing without understanding!

Every gun and weapon in this society is pointed at Christianity and they’re silent and subtle. Turn off the Bears and pay attention, be alert, look deeper. Put doen the beer, spend a weekend doing something other than getting drunk. You’re under attack and you don’t even know it. Once you’re addicted to pornography, or think that weed, caffeine or adderall aren’t addictive, they’ve already fooled you. Once you start to think that premarital sex is ok, even though if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll realize that it’s probably lead to some of the most intense pain you’ve felt in your life. That it leads to STD’s, abortions, unwanted pregnancies, psychological damage and a potential life of the inability to open your heart and trust. They’ve got you!

Open your eyes and see that there is a concerted effort to keep you in debt. That when you don’t use GOD’S resources appropriately, you’re allowing the devil his way and ignoring your Father. Realize that this mirage isn’t just happening at the presidential level. It’s happening at all levels. That a Christian has no place discussing politics and can do infinitely more talking about Christ instead of Mitt. That every second you talk about politics you’re falling right into their trap. That when you let Obama 2012 convince you that Obama is Anti colonialism that you’re really the fool. Replace anti colonialism with anti American as Mitt is and Bush was and as Clinton (the gains America made under Clinton were nothing more that one big build up of wealth just so it could be stolen) was. Replace anti-colonialism with, America needs to be destroyed so that we can have one world government and then watch the movie.

All of this isn’t information I just happened upon. Searching for truth is something I’ve done my entire life, and in the last three years I’ve concentrated on society, politics, power and money and this is where it’s lead me. Once GOD revealed Himself to me it all made sense. This wouldn’t have been possible without my Father. The things I’ve talked about in this post have been revealed to me by Him in so many amazing ways I can’t even start to tell you. I didn’t hear any voices, notes didn’t fall from heaven, he just simply put it on my heart and nudged me in the right direction. How does GOD put things on your heart? Easily, a little anxiety here, a little excitement there. A little adversity here, a little smooth sailing there. He’s guiding all of us everyday. Some of us understand that adversity, and head in the other direction and some of us don’t and keep getting deeper and deeper into it. In the same way a commercial can cause an emotional reaction in us to buy something, GOD can do it infinitely better and more effectively.

There may be some of you who see what I’ve written here as unpatriotic. Nothing could be further from the truth. What’s unpatriotic is allowing your country and GOD to be taken right out from under you, while you pompously think you have knowledge and wisdom. While you think more about where the next meal’s coming from, even though it’s slowly and intentionally killing you. While you’re confused about why you can’t wake up or go to sleep but don’t want to think about Starbucks or how you became addicted to it. Or how you’re being brain washed into thinking GOD’S not real as you watch your favorite sitcom or movie. While you think more about when the next version of Madden is coming out than if there’s a GOD and what is life really all about. While you watch the Bears or the Cubs or what ever escape from reality you prefer over understanding why you can’t seem to get ahead or your marriage is falling apart or why you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin. Or why you need that escape in the first place. They’re silent weapons for a silent war and they’re pointed at the United States as a whole and even more intensely at Christianity and Christians.

So who are you going to vote for?

Addendum: It has been made clear to me by several people that there is one part of voting that I missed, and that is local issues and initiatives. While I still know that voting for anyone state level or higher (or mayor if you’re in a city of more than 150k people) is a waste of time, I do agree that voting on local items can be very important and I wish I would have done this in the past election.

Don’t take my word for it! Research, Learn, Understand, Trust!
