The Right Way to go backwards

Remember back in the 80’s and 90’s when you fell off your bike? You probably got back on it, despite the cuts and bruises. It’s what separates the men from the boys. It would probably be illegal by today’s standards to get back on after falling off.

The liberal agenda would want us to take our kids to the hospital. They might even tell them to apply for disability and that they wouldn’t be able to work for the rest of their life. Or that they have to take medicine forever.

As much as we try to believe in evolution and strive for progress, if you look close enough you realize that there is no such thing. We have basically been doing the same thing for centuries, only in different ways. Technology makes it easier, which often makes us lazier.

Maybe in a sense, we are not really progressing as much as we are regressing; aka progressively going back to where we started.

The irony of progressing right back where you started. Maybe we will go back to a time when people weren’t so sensitive and materialistic.

Party like it’s 1899.

Politics makes me wish I was a futurist

I can safely say I am glad the election is over. I didn’t even care who won. Reason being that there is a greater kingdom that operates in the world and God’s will be done through it doesn’t matter who takes the office of the President of the United States.

I used to always hear Christians say that no matter who is President, Jesus is still King. It seems they only say this when the person they didn’t vote for wins. When their candidate wins, you would think it was the second coming and he was the messiah himself.

To me it doesn’t matter who is in office or what happens in politics because the economy, like the retail stores that I have worked in, tends to run itself. One of the reasons that the economy has been declining is because people are not playing the game like they used to before 9-11.

If you look at the following sites, you will discover a new trend within the church and even outside of it:

The Gig Economy and Sustainable Living

People are opting out of the economy and choosing to live on less. This frees you up to serve God’s Kingdom more fully. Many people are making a living within the gig economy or by pursuing freelance careers that the internet has opened up for them.

A Harvard business professor even encouraged his students to take advantage of this rather than looking for a job. A popular website called also lists creative ways to make a living without having to look for a “job”.

Minimalism: Detachment from the world

Going back to the intentional community idea: this sounds more like church than actually going to church on Sunday. Believers living in communities and sharing their resources and even taking in the poor and homeless like Jesus call them to do. Maybe if the church gets back to doing this, the government won’t have to.

So why do I say that politics makes me wish I was a Futurist? Because I believe that it is a distraction to the Kingdom of the Christ that has been here for nearly 2000 years. Whatever goes on in politics, for one may be more “fake news” just to get advertising. Secondly, keep in mind that we serve a God who can bring good out of anything. See Romans 8:28 where is says “for God causes all things to work for the good of those who love Him.”

Imagine having no one to rule over you, except for the obvious

Judges 21:25. . ."In those days there was no king in Israel, everyone did what was right in his own eyes."

I was listening to a book I rarely listen to in my Scourby bible app; the Book of Judges. I should add that I love listening to audiobooks these days, it's like having someone read to me as a little child again. It is also kind of relaxing if you get someone with a soothing voice. Alexander Scourby is one of those people. It can be hard to concentrate this way, especially since I have a tendency to fall asleep listening t audiobooks. 

The book of Judges was that interim period after Moses and Joshua led the Israelites to the promised land and before the kingdom of Israel was set up. In those days they were ruled by judges, although I would use the term "rule" loosely. As the last verse summarizes, everyone did what was right in their own eyes because there was no king. 

The Constitutional Foundation for the United States

No wonder our founding fathers felt the Bible was a good book for the foundation of a free republic and the American Constitution. A true Republican believes in everyone taking personal responsibility for their own lives.  This is the basis on how to live in a free society. Democracy is an illusion because elections tend to be rigged. Also, the basis for Democracy is electing someone to rule over you. The result of Democracy is more government dependency which is reflected in higher taxes. 

The basis for a Theocracy is rule by God. Obviously, God already rules over everything, though He leaves us the freewill to rule our own lives. No one likes a Theocracy because you usually have an elite group of "rulers." Although you have an elite group, aka the "1%", each person has the authority to rule over their lives.  In a Theocracy, each person can be led by the Spirit of God directly if they choose to follow Him.   A verse in the book of Psalms says "righteousness exalts a nation but sin brings a reproach to its people."  Democracy leads to socialism which leads too laziness and dependency, which is the sin this verse it talking about. 

Why Democracy is bad and eventually fails

Democracy is valued by intellectuals who cherish cooperation over competition. However, most of them don't understand how the world works or even human nature for that matter. The basis for the New World Order is trying to bring in world socialism. If the economy is collapsing, it is just the socialism that is collapsing.  Socialism is doomed to fail and eventually leads back to a freer society. Democracy doesn't really value individual freedom and is more secular, which makes it an antichrist kingdom.  It is nothing more than mob rule over the individual. 

Everything social democrats strive for can be found within a free society in their nonprofit sector.  Or at least that has been my observation from living in more conservative societies. For example, the universal healthcare in "red states" was provided at local county hospitals. 

Just to reiterate, Democracy doesn't really exist because society doesn't really exist. It is just a group of individuals who feel the need to vote for someone to have authority over them. The only real authority is the Most High who lavishes wisdom on all who seek it. We really don't need rulers but will always have a government out of convenience; it helps when it comes to enforcing contracts within the illusion of "society". 

Republicans and Democrats are both socialists to some degree. The former leans more toward greater individual sovereignty and more limited government. Although since both political parties in the U.S. have sold us out in some form or another, the Right is more the lesser of two evils since being sold out to corporate interests is better than becoming a slave to the government. 

Orange is the new black

I borrowed the title of today’s blog post from the Netflix drama with the same name. I have to confess that I would rather watch the drama on the infamous TV app rather than anything to do with politics. This post takes us back to a few years ago when Donald Trump replaced Barack Obama as the 45th President of the United States of America.

The inspiration for the blog post was that I never see much difference in the economy regardless of who sits in the Oval Office. We are usually at war somewhere no matter who the President is for one thing. Supposedly fighting for freedom, though it is usually more for profit than anything.

Granted, the economy was booming under President Trump, yet it started booming under President Obama during his last few years. I am not crediting either President with the success of the economy. The economy is a natural business cycle of ups and downs. It usually booms and busts under a Republican, which is why we are always in a recession when a Democrat gets elected. The Democrats use this as an opportunity to promote socialism. Not long after the election, the economy starts booming again and this is why Democrats get credit for the economy. That and they usually make up for the recession by injecting money into the economy to stabilize it.

I remember the election of 2016. It lasted for hours until Democratic “hopeful” Hillary Clinton conceded to “The Donald.” Trump was merely a tool by the right wing in the United States. It was a psyop to keep the Clintons out of the Oval Office. It may have been a blessing in disguise.

To sum it up, don’t worry about what goes on in politics too much. It is just a distraction from what goes on behind the scenes in the real free society. I only follow it because the Shitshow is entertaining. Everytime I write on something political it ends up being satirical. I may be onto something here.

Is it more moral to be a Republican or a Democrat?

The title to this blog post has been an ongoing question over the last decade. While it seems most religious people tend to lean toward the right of the spectrum, a growing number of voters are voting left. They cite that it is moral to help the poor and disenfranchised. They are right in that it is, it just depends on who is more moral in doing it.

I grew up in a conservative state and visited the west coast enough to see how democratic states function. I did not see much of a difference with regards to social services. The main difference was that social service organizations relied more on actual donations rather than government welfare programs. I also noticed that organizations like Salvation Army had dorms where they rented out a bed and a locker to transient people more in conservative states.

It should be noted that Democracy is a secular idea that originated in ancient Greece and thrived mostly in pagan societies. Maybe this is why democratic societies embrace science more than religion and trend towards atheism. The one thing I noticed in democratic societies is a higher cost of living and a tax on virtually everything. This goes against the notion of a free society that was envisioned by our founding fathers during the Enlightenment. Maybe this is why the founders did not speak very well of Democracy.

The spread of democracy tends to lead toward more government dependency (i.e., social poverty) and runs antithesis to capitalism. More atheists lose faith in the church and subsequently the free market and this explains why they lean more towards democracy and big government. From growing up in a conservative society, the market always tends to provide for the needs of everyone. Most counties in Texas have county hospitals for those that lack health insurance, for example.

From the divine perspective, I don’t think it really matters who is you vote for. It is God who prospers His people. Prosperity in the kingdom of God may not look like prosperity from the world’s point of view since the Kingdom is not dependent on money like the world is. A wise person that can live simple is just as prosperous as a billionaire. The spiritual realm is the only realm where all things are truly equal.

On a final note, when a Democrat gets elected, it is usually during a recession. Therefore, if the economy looks like it is doing better under democrats, it is more than likely because the economy is already in the process of bouncing back. Also, there is the fact that governments spend more money which makes the economy looks like it is thriving; all the while putting society in a debt that will probably never be able to pay back.
