So I am driving my ancient and behemoth 1993 Mercedes-Benz down a street that has a speed limit of 35 MPH. This is not exactly a NASCAR speedway, I know, but the speed we were going was enough to kill a decent-sized human being. It seemed that some people did not realize this or preferred to be oblivious. There was a nice, happy family walking four abreast in the middle of this two-way street; smack dab in the middle of it was their baby in a stroller. As I drove in their direction I assumed they would at the least move to the side of the road and walk in a single file. But what should I expect from people these days. OF COURSE, they continued to walk in my lane. This forced me into a near collision with an oncoming pickup. Do they care? No. They carry on walking in their blissful stupor, a daze in which everything will be just fine as long as they remain ignorant and indifferent.
In a world of common sense this would never happen; people would never think and carry on in this manner, putting their child in danger. In a world of people conscious of the consequences of their actions, this would never occur. But of course we are not graced with living in such a world. True conservatives are the only ones left with any inherent sense of accountability and are stranded in a world where most people believe everything should be served to them upon a silver platter (and yes, now you see my political leanings).
True conservatives are accountable for their possessions, their money, their actions and they are damned proud of it. They do not allow the Messiah (Mr. Obama) to tell them where their money should go and who should benefit from their work.
The problem is most people are sheep, followers. They do not have the will to act as true conservatives do. They basically lack the balls to be self-reliant. It is just easier to let someone else make all the big decisions for you; no need to be responsible for one’s self. This poses a major problem for our nation. This ability—or even desire—to make the government or any overarching force culpable for one’s own life in certain respects is just plain frightening. People are then oblivious to all of the threats that are thrust upon us, including Islamic terrorism, economic collapse, and war. This frightens me; how much the human mind can be corrupted into being so weak, so malleable. It almost seems like selling one’s own soul. It’s like having a bad dream but instead of fighting or crying for help one just sits there helpless like a child, just waiting and assuming they will wake up before they have their head cut off by Freddy Kruger.
Whether you think I am just some paranoid ultra-conservative or you actually try to wrap your head around my thoughts, please try and think for yourself when you are given the opportunity. Take every chance you can to make sure you decide your own fate and not leave it up to a suit in Washington to decide.
