Where Do We Go From Here?

I invite you to read the whole thing, including my additional observations at the bottom.

This post is not open for debate. I have earned my right for freedom of speech and expressing my opinions. I have listened to everyone else’s hatred, rhetoric and outright lies for the last four years, so now I am having my say. If you don’t like it, you know where the delete button is; unfriend me or block me – just know I haven’t done that to my hardcore Biden friends; they are still my friends in my eyes and I don’t call them names for expressing their opinions. Let me be clear, I am not a Biden fan. I think he is corrupt, a liar, a racist bigot, is in bed with China, probably suffering from dementia and is only a short time place holder for the most radical VP to step right into the Presidency. He has done nothing to improve anything in his 47-year political career; and, you should seriously check out Senator Harris’ very short, unqualified record.

But what has Trump done in the past 4 years?

The “arrogant” in the White House brokered four Middle East Peace Accords, something that 71 years of political intervention and endless war failed to produce.

The “buffoon” in the White House is the first president that has not engaged us in a foreign war since Eisenhower.

The “racist” in the White House has had the greatest impact on the economy, bringing jobs, and lowering unemployment to the Black and Latino population of ANY other president. Ever.

The “liar” in the White House has exposed the deep, widespread, and long-standing corruption in the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the Republican and Democratic parties.

The “buffoon” in the White House turned NATO around and had them start paying their dues.

The “fool” in the White House neutralized the North Koreans and stopped them sending missiles toward Japan, and threatening the West Coast of the US.

The “xenophobe” in the White House turned our relationship with the Chinese around, brought hundreds of business back to the US, and revived the economy.

This same “clown” lowered your taxes, increased the standard deduction on your IRS return from $12,500 to $24,400 for married couples and caused the stock market to rise to record levels, positively impacting the retirement accounts of tens of millions of citizens.

The “clown” in the White House rebuilt our military which the Obama administration crippled and fired 214 key generals and admirals in his first year of office.

I got it, you don’t like him. Many of you utterly hate and despise him. How special of you. He is serving you and ALL the American people. What are you doing besides calling him names and laughing about him catching the China virus? Some of you were even hoping that COVID would be the cause of his demise. (Ah, the left. The party of “tolerance”. )

Please educate me again as to what Biden has accomplished for America in his 47 years in office, besides making the whole Biden family richer? By the way, where is Hunter?

I’ll take the “clown” any day versus a fork tongued, smooth talking hypocritical corrupt liar. I want a strong leader who isn’t afraid to kick some ass when needed. I don’t need a fatherly figure. I don’t need a liar. That’s what Hollywood, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times are for.

Call me a chump, a racist, or part of the basket of deplorables because I am none of those things and I do not care!

God bless Donald Trump – the best, most unappreciated President in U.S. history. 🇺🇸

Feel free to copy/paste, I did.

There is a concise yet stark explanation of why the political class so hates Donald Trump, why they invented new dirty tricks with which to take him down, and why they will do anything to destroy him and also endeavor to punish his many supporters around the world.

As a novice to politics and “government,” and despite even the multitude of treasonous plots enacted against him and his presidency, Donald Trump has accomplished many good and virtuous things that your “government,” and your “leaders,” and your “representatives,” and “the experts,” and your overlords and rulers, for decades have told you were IMPOSSIBLE to do. Yet, as a newbe, he accomplished those things, thereby soundly and profoundly exposing the political class as the self-serving, arrogant, manipulative, puffed-up, corrupt, narcissistic, tyranny-bent bunch of coddled and protected candy-asses that they are. Considering this, it totally makes sense why the media (read: propaganda mills) have never told us about Donald Trump’s successes.

Yes, I am firmly rebuking people in government – politicians and bureaucrats alike. It is not only my right, it is my duty.

Washington DC, and its orbiting institutions of power and unimaginable wealth, have become the most corrupt city and institutions on the face of the planet. In them, is the center of a cruel industry that does not solve, but propagates problems and then forces upon you the snake oil solutions that, magically, never solve the problem. For a couple of generations, we have not noticed the intentional and purposeful failures as they had distracted us with the next “crisis.” I admit, for a long time, I frequently fell for it. But then enough of us had caught some glimpses behind the curtain in order that we miraculously elected Donald Trump to the presidency.

It was never on my bucket list, but for a decade I worked inside the machinery of Washington DC. There, I gained insight into how the daily political fantasies are spun – even by those who you might have thought were the good guys.

Now we are at a point of inflection where the powerful political class recognized that their cruel and immoral system has been found out by many decent, virtuous and previously hood-winked people. They recognized that the power of the vote had become a threat to their ivory tower position. Therefore, they took the vote away from us whom they see as merely the lowly rubes. They turned the vote into a sophisticated sham and endeavored to put in place a regime whose agenda will ensure that a fair vote will never be returned to the now much-more-aware American people. They expect us to swallow the blue pill of fantasy and return to our infatuations with “bread and circus” as they will also intend to further inject into the veins of the culture every form of moral depravity. Moral decay, physical, emotional and economic suffering, hopelessness, and more than anything else, GODLESSNESS among the people brings to them more power.

Where do we go from here? What shall I do about it right now? I do not yet know, except for a choice before us to follow a path of virtue and righteousness, and to call on others to do the same. Within this ethical framework fits MY firm repudiation of the tyrannical deception that has been played upon the greatest and perhaps once most virtuous nation that has ever existed. (Greatness is less than virtue)

One paradox of life is that it is mostly the seemingly small, frequent and perhaps mundane decisions we make that then make us into who we are. Similarly, it is the individual that makes a society into what it is. Perhaps our monumental decisions are actually forgone and merely the result of all the smaller decisions that we have made before.

God made the Universe. He put us in it. Even given our flaws, He expects us to make this Universe a better place. Without that ongoing effort, we are all condemned to an existence of misery and suffering at the hands of others and the evil they will do, and we would exist within an absence of purpose, thereby making any amount of suffering even more cruel.

I (little ‘ole me!) am going to continue to make this into a better Universe…

…by making this into a better planet…

…by making mine into a better society…

…by making myself into a better man.

I (old ‘ole me!) am going to make my life into a better life…

…by making this into a better day…

…by making this hour into a better hour…

…by making THIS minute into a BETTER MINUTE.

…and I challenge you to consider doing the same.

The grandeur, the immensity, the beauty and the design of the Universe is revealed in a single grain of sand.

The mystery, the intrigue, and the potential of a decision and its outcomes across all time and eternity exist in a single moment.

The goodness or evil of a small community of people, of a society, of a civilization, and of all humanity, hinges on the choice for truth, righteousness, wisdom and God’s revealed moral authority for justice by each individual man or woman.

Where do we go from here? I do not know the next mile, or the next bend in the road, but I am certain of my next ten steps. I will stumble some. I will stub my toe. But, I will continue on to the next marker.

Our (becoming more) tyrannical government is chock-full of politicians who promise that they are going to fix the world. Their strategy, that they increasingly and openly advertise, is that they are going to fix the world by fixing us, by them becoming more powerful and making the individual weaker. They endeavor to fix the world while most of them have never considered working on fixing themselves first.

If you want freedom, while we figure out the next part, get busy making yourself a better man or woman, demand the same of others.
