We on the conservative did not realize how far 1/2 of this country had fallen. We were too busy living our lives, raising good children and working the soil. We were just busy being good honest Americans. Many of us Americans a busy folks. But only a little less than half of us, it seems.
And yet, I was watching “Idiocracy” (the movie) the other night and it was amazing just how close of a description it made in regards to our populace.
We should have taken a good hard luck at television and seen the change. It has happened incrementally over 30 years. The culture is hooked on celebrity with no regards to the issues, except for headlines which are spoon fed by the MSM. The culture pays no attention to the grand issues, the main point. These folks in this culture are too busy buying jeans and tattoos. They are uninterested in the large issues.
Any book stores open ? Anyone buying classical music? What types of pop music are in fashion? What are the hottest TV shows?( Honey boo boo... Housewives and sluts ) What are the hottest movies? Do you know anyone that reads books, novels short stories or god forbid, political commentary? Anyone tending a garden? Anyone working up a sweat ?
I will still fight for language, borders and culture ( in the words of Michael Savage) I will still vote for a flat tax and an end to entitlements and smaller government. I will still vote for a powerful deterrent in regards to nuclear arms. I will still vote for a strong foreign policy.
But I have very little hope. I’ll fight, but at this point I need to move forward with realistic expectations.
Get yourself set up such that when all the support systems come to a horrible screeching halt, you still can live without going to the gov’t with your hand out.
If there are enough of us, and we hole up for a while, the rest will work itself out.
