The year of Barack Hussein Obama's re-election now nears its conclusion; four more years of his Presidency remain. I have spent much of the past one venting my opposition to Obama, much of it on Facebook and Twitter, some on my Redroom blog, as well as in my writing for magazines, one of my books, and in a long chapter in a book I completed last summer but have not yet found a publisher for.
Aside from being a professional writer for nearly two decades, I read three newspapers a day; regularly read national magazines, conservative as well as other, and the New York Times. I used to really try and listen to the “liberal” side of the news, like CNN, MSNBC, PBS, but just plain gave up trying some time around 2004 or so. They do not broaden my horizons. I learn nothing new or of value by listening to them. I listen to, watch Fox News.
I have read countless books; a huge library of history, biography, classics. I have read the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, about 11 times through, complete. I am unaware of another person I have ever met who has read anywhere close to the books I have read, even though I am no speed reader. It is just a lifetime habit.
I have spent a lifetime acquiring knowledge, wisdom, common sense, all tempered by supplication and prayer before Almighty God. I will state this arrogant, yet true, statement, which is that I do not personally know anybody who knows more than me. Screw it, truth is truth.
When I post conservative things on Facebook, I generally hear it in short order from my liberal “friends.” I have about 1,500 “friends” on Facebook. I know maybe 130 of them. Most I cultivate so I can disseminate my opinions and try to sell my 20 books, or advertise my magazines pieces, or brag about something I have won or been awarded. Mainly selfish and self-centered, capitalist in nature, a desire to sell something and make more money. My political opinions in 2012 were equal parts work as an unpaid Mitt Romney campaign staffer taking it upon himself to advance his cause via social media; equal parts an effort to build a conservative audience who will buy conservative books I write and plan to write.
I have discovered a dedicated coterie of liberals, Barack Obama supporters, who appear to wait breathlessly by their computers to respond to whatever I post about Obama, the Democrats, or liberalism in general. I never respond to anything they write.
The reason I do not is that it is simply not possible, within the reference of man's existence upon Earth, to care less than what these liberal opinions are. I could not care less. I do no give a s-t. Liberalism, radicalism, Left-wingism, Communism, Socialism; I have learned what all of this is, the relationship of these isms to Pol Pot, Joe Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao, and modern American Left-wingers. I have learned of the connective tissue of these histiorical threads, pieced them together like a CIA analyst looking for Bin Laden, and today stand in possession of knowledge as to what they all are. The fact that I am right - as arrogant as this sounds - simply exists as knowledge thus possessed by me. It is not an opinion, but a premise. It is manifest just as the divine truth of Jesus Christ stands as manifest, not an opinion, but rather something that simply exists, is. A million people can say I am crazy. It does not matter. I am right. By no means does this mean those who disagree with me will suddenly realize I am right. They will state the lie that I am wriong. The fact I am right will, again, stand as premise. That with which is. But in a world as immoral as modern day Earth, I stand in the minority, opposed by the tyranny of the majority. Again, I do not care! If Christ could withstand the nails, the spit and the cat o' nine tails, I can withstand the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.
Being right is not something I can attest to my own greatness. It stems from the Holy Spirit. Many are called, few are chosen, as Christ says. If the Holy Spirit has not descended upon you, you do not know Christ. You wil consider my words, as mentioned, arrogant, ignorant, stupid, You will post these opines on Facebook. It is not possible for me to care less.
You can pray and ask the Holy Spirit to enter you. This is a freedom you have and it is available to you on your death bed, a jail cell, at the Playboy mansion between three Playmates, in a bar, in a brothel, at a ball game, in a church, in a space capsule, or in a ditch. It is not available to you in hell. Do what you have to do to avoid going to hell. If disappointed or disgraced in life, consider it a blessing that you are paying your penance in this life, not the next. Ask, and you shall receive. If you want to dispute what I say on Facebook, post what you like. I really do not read your stupidities and meanderings, and certainly, quite simply, do not care one iota. But knock yourself out.
Recently, I have been watching “Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States.” Nary a word about Alger Hiss being a paid Communist spy; or FDR's Oval Office filled with Commies; or the Venona Project proving it all true; or how many Communists actually were in Hollywood, under Moscow's contol; or how 110 million human beings were murdered by Communism; or 55 million killed by Mao; or any number of other actuall facts of human history. Reagan, Stone tells us, was “barbaric.” Now, I am all for free speech and do not actually advocate Stone be imprisoned for what he states on Showtime, but on the other hand, I am persuaded that his lies are so terrible, so actually Satanic in their vociferous untruths, that I would really get some guilty pleasure out of this man being tossed into a jail cell. At least for a year. Okay, maybe I'm kidding.
But maybe not.
But it has come down to this. Radicalism, liberalsim, Socialism; these are the tools not merely of a political ideology I disagree with, but of Satan. Now, to those who disagree, such words are simply the product of ignorance and a lack of enlightenement. As I told one of my friends, I am the most enlightened man I know. My studies of history, from the Persians to the Greeks to the Romans to the British Empire to the French to the Nazis, the Soviets and jihadists, and the American Empire, teach me God involves himself in the affairs of man. It is a struggle between God and the devil, using countries, politicians, armies, empires. My studies further inform me that beginning with Jean-Jacques Rousseau's “Social Contarct,” carried to fruition in the French Revolution, then a century of European revolt culminating in Karl Marx and the Communist Revolutiuon, followed by a century only Satan could have spawned with one nation under God somehow, in just the nick of time, becoming powerful enough and moral enough and righteous enough and determined enough to oppose it; well this tells me that this radical Left-wing thought, couched in the gauzy maize of anti-war protest, civil rights marches, feminism, environmentalism, a desire to help the “little guy,” to help the blacks who have been enslaved a second time by its drugs and its welfare state; well, it is on the march and it now at this point in human history is the tool the devil uses to fight God. Millions of school children are taught blacks were freed by liberals marching in the strets. They were freed when Jesus Christ softened the hearts of white racists in the South. Liberals hate hearing this. Until they are enlightened enough to see the truth of this, they are in grave danger of being, as Norman Mailer wrote in “Harlot's Ghost,” “fodder for the devil.”
America is now an immoral nation. A nation that aborts 55 million children and elevates an industry worshipping not Christ but a Golden Calf called the Oscars, will elect an immoralist President. It will be run by immoralists. It will fall from grace.
But each individual can ask God to forgive him the sins he was born into. He can repent. He can see the light, find truth, and be saved.
Keep positing your diatribes on Fascebook. I will continue to care less about them than is possible to communicate. I will pray for you. The truth shall make ye free.
