I recognize this as well and see this as the reason he has been deemed unelectable by the GOP and MSM. Everything this candidate stands for goes against the system.
They deemed him unelectable in previous elections while they continued on about bad fiscal policies resulting in the situation we have today...both Republicans and Democrats. Like I said previously in a post...to me the republicans are nothing more than Democrat lite. Many of them are not conservative at all.
I agree and have witnessed these individuals in action. People clearly chosen and acting in accord with the Word. What I have witnessed time and again though, as has my son recently, are those individuals who claim to be acting according to the Word yet show their true nature while out and about and even in the house of worship. You detailed these signs and flags and have clearly seen them yourself.
I have seen this too indeed...in people and organizations. It is also how I am often given to characterize the nature of the religion called "Politics." For Politics too is often not the product advertised.
I am that man.
Rykuss...I am sorry to hear that. I have been there myself...and eventually I caught on to it. I began to teach myself how to spot these indexes or fingerprints and take steps and thinking to not do it. When You have family responsibilities it becomes even more difficult ..particularly when someone else wants you to constantly keep the buffet line full..but has no consideration or care for the "RISKS" involved in the maintenance efforts/labors.
Indeed, the world outside my door has been invading my home for some time now. What was once a family dinner at the table has been replaced by television, no real communication takes place anymore. The crossroad is divorce or disharmony that leads to it or a complete submission to the world outside by the father. A defeat in my opinion.
Yes...television and movie thinking , beliefs, and emotions. Things happen for you because you push a button. Therefore you are good people if you push buttons ..on a remote or a phone. No labor or RISKS involved...because you watch this or that...purchase or wear this or that ..you are good people...anyone or anything else need not be considered or taken to account or factored in. Things should just show up because you are good people..and watch this or that good program or vote for other "good people."
You deserve it ..the others don't...even if they are working and RISKING for all of it.
One of the worst things I think that a family can do is get the children their own televisions ..where they can disconnect from the rest of the family. Same thing with a cell phone...they can disconnect from the rest of the family. It soon becomes not an emergency tool..but a social tool...away from the family. Often you cannot sit down to dinner without the outside world..ie..phone invading your home. The gist of this soon becomes how to gain access to the social structure..not how to be part of the family. It soon puts the cart in front of the horse....in every category.
Now ...the technology is running the home..not the people and certainly not the parents.
The key is reversing the technology grasp on the family. Divorce is coming anyway..under this system...and the numbers bear this out. It becomes like a drug habit..one has to get to their drugs...to get a fix..or go into rejection. Therefore sacrifice everything and anything to get to ones fix.
Most do not know they are on a drug.
The video link is appropriate. That to me ...Roddy Piper...movie was a early version or illustration of "The Matrix."
Aha! This is the meat and potatoes of their agenda. This is my household and the household of many of my friends and relatives.
Yeah..I know this symptom too. Also know these men. Many of these men are often happier at work than at home.
What is worse..the women/wives in these households do not particularly care...as long as the children are satisfied and kept going. They don't even seem to notice that the men are in this condition and wouldn't change anything if they could.
I am not saying here to put the children last ..but to bring the man in first too.
This becomes one high maintenance nightmare after another high maintenance nightmare...
What I find interesting in "Equality " happening..is that the male is expected and taken for granted that he will even "Provide" from the grave by insurance. Yet very seldom is anything provided or protected for the male if his spouse/mate dies first..unless he pays for that too.
Almost nothing a man gets from a woman is socially protected if she dies first.
There is almost total social silence on this inequality.
It is not crazy because this is the exact conditioning destroying the American family. Questioning this system of television and public education will have you labeled as crazy by those funding it and those who buy into it, family included.
This is how the very soul of a people and a nation are bought, sold, and traded for lucre.
As my children near entering into the world, one at a time, I fear for what is to come. The entitlement and ideals ingrained in them by this system go entirely against their upbringing and I fear they will learn the lessons all too late, as designed.
Your are correct to fear for what is to come for them as well as yourself.
They will learn the lessons whether they are ready for them or not. The world will not stop for them or you as they decide to get on or off the train.
How and when they learn the lessons is not going to be up to you. The question/questions for you is are you going to sink your ship while they decide they can learn the lesson or not. Are you going to pay for the ground on the race track over and over for them while they make up their mind to pit stop at someone else's expense. How much are you willing to make yourself "Expendable and Disposable while they continue to "Pit Stop " or grow up.
All you can do is give them the foundation and hope at some time they can connect the dots.
Years ago..I told a kid...I say kid..he was in his twenties and just out of the Marine Corps. He was having problems with his marriage and as a result finances. His auto was broken and I helped him repair it by letting him use my garage.
I remember telling him and have told a number of young men since then.
"Don't you understand what it is to be a man today?? Has no one ever told you?
As a man you are going to have to solve problems..navigate problems...to get them done for others who don't care how they get done...they don't want to know the details..they just want it done for them...without work and without RISKS.
When you are doing all this work and RISK...no one is coming to help you ...no one is coming to rescue you. No one is coming to Flash Dance you through these hurdles. They just want the finished product. You are and will be for all purposes...alone in these endeavours."
This young man...his eyes lit up..got big..he had never heard anything like this. It was obvious that he had little male help or guidance when he was growing up.
But he knew enough to immediately recognize it was true.
The Marine Corps had never prepared him for such thinking.
I have repeated this process with a number of young men to this day. Some catch it..and some do not. Those who do not ..you just leave them right where they are at. Just like I would with some women who don't catch on and try to replace my beliefs with theirs...with nothing of real intrinsic value coming to me....ie..peace verses piece.
There is no peace to be found in my own home, only piece. My wife and I were brought up in two different worlds. She was raised in an environment where the children ruled the house through the mother. My father-in-law was conditioned to work his fingers to the bone to provide for an unrelenting and unappreciative, selfish, uncaring family. No interest for where and how the luxuries afforded them and their lifestyles came from. This teaching has found it's way into my home through my wife and mother-in-law.
This is sad Rykuss. I know many men in the same position. Their women don't seem to care and think this is perfectly normal...unless something happens to their man and they have no more investment in biology..biology has run out and it has turned into "Past midnight Cinderella."
I do not approve of children running the house by running mother. And I know many households where this is the norm. The children often grow up High Maintenance with expectations that someone else fill in the hard gaps/hurdles for them gratis...even after they are grown. And furthermore many of them still cannot let go the tit after the age of being grown and having children of their own. Many of these grandparents are now days not only raising their children again...but grandchildren too. You now have children and grandchildren at home and the children wanting to be sixteen again and pit stopping and again Mom thinks this is normal. Nothing wrong with it...everything is beautiful. Make grandpa expendable, disposable, and last place again. No Peace.
My teachings, my lessons from the school of hard knocks, of real life experiences that contrast to this teaching, has been rejected and discarded in favor of this other philosophy.
No problem here. You just have to decide whether, when the kids go out into the world, you are going to continue to pay for the same ground for them two three or an infinite number of times while they are pit stopping. Or are they going to take responsibility for themselves. Your choice.
I'll tell you how this worked for one fellow in the olde crew in which I worked. His daughter got married and after about two years it did not work out ..for reasons I know not ..nor care. But she had a daughter in the mean time. So she comes back home to mom and pop since she had no where else to go.
But in the mean time ..Pop had turned the daughters room into His room with all his goodies in there they way he wanted it. It was his sanctuary...from his high maintenance kids and wife.
So the Light bulb comes on in Moms head...the "Expendability and Disposability light bulb. The Default setting light bulb. She says..."You need to give up your room to daughter and grand daughter.!!"
To my astonishment...Pop/Grand Dad says " I ain't giving up S**t!!" I didn't marry the guy ..I and I am not responsible for what happened. And I am not going through this again!! I don't need to grow up...she does!
He didn't give up his room. She and the grandchild slept on a air mattress for about four months and eventually went back to her husband. I don't know how the rest of it worked out but I found this interesting. And he was correct and his woman was wrong.
See what I mean...it is easy for women to work default settings at someone else's expense and RISK...if you let them. It is very easy for a woman to expect a man to cover the same ground for the children and then grandchildren over and over and over...and think this is normal But you have to handle this for yourself and decide if you want a career in covering the same ground over and over.
This may satisfy mom's mothering emotions..but she often does not worry about the emotions of others..their emotions are expendable and disposable.
This is not equality ..it is politics. And politics can often be a type of whoredom.
The buying, selling, and trading of someone else's soul...because no one sees what we do...and if they do ..they don't count anyways.
I cannot go to my bedroom to seek sanctuary in my own home.
It is up to you to decide how to construct your own sanctuary since your woman cares not for this in your regards. I illustrated for you how one man did it in his home.
I know some women who are so stupid they cannot think outside their own settings on their dials. Their men find more Peace working on an olde car they have purchased than with them or for them. They think there is something wrong with the man...they do not have the ability to look inside to see if there is something wrong with their working/thinking/value system. They do not realize that they have found a place in their " perfect" Home and garden house ...for everyone but their man. Hence her man finds more peace and relaxation with the olde car in the garage than with them...or at work...or anywhere else.
But this would take commitment from a woman to comprehend this. And their commitments are to the children and their Home and Garden house. Because no one sees what we do.
Teaching my daughters, my son, to be self dependent, to take charge and do for themselves is rejected out of hand. It is far easier to get mom to do it or at least get mom so riled up about it that she bitches enough that dad gets up and does it out of frustration.
You decide for yourself how much of this you want to be doing as a career too. If you don't ..you will be doing this for them as adults while they continue to "Pit Stop" with you being the pit crew and your woman directing you to work faster and faster ...not only for your children but grandchildren to come. And they will all think this is normal.
I have actually seen a grown kid...telling his father when he needs his car fixed and that he will pick it up when it is ready. This kid had cigarettes in his pocket...but no money to fix his own car. What is wrong with this picture??? What is wrong with the father??
I was dumbstruck when I first saw someone doing this.
I would find this no different for a daughter. If she can afford cigarettes she can afford to keep her car running. You play ...you pay.
Let me tell you something else which I witnessed many years ago and told this woman what was wrong with the picture. She invited me over several times to dinner. After the dinner was over she cleaned up while the children went into the living room and watched television and talked on the phone. One day when we were out and about...I told her ..do you know what you are doing to those children??...they were young teens back then. You are stunting their growth. There is no reason you should be cleaning up and doing everything after also preparing dinner..and the children watching TV and lounging around. I could maybe see it if they were doing homework or such..but it does not take that long to clean up a kitchen ..especially if they work as a team. You have put in a full days work and are tit feeding the kids long past the age they should be learning to do for themselves...as well as weaned. You are crippling them with your love. It is not making you a better mother. It is making you a worn out mother and dumbing down your children.
I did not say that she did not love her children I would not say this to a woman....but that you can love them while making them responsible and making them grow up as well. You can love your children and tell them no. It is still love....though it takes some of us hard heads ..years and years to figure it out. Me included!!!
Eventually she had them doing the laundry at the apartment laundromat...and other things they had never been doing.
We did not work out ..but I was glad she got the kids off their butts. But first she had to get her thinking cap on correctly. She had lost focus in the concept of preparing them for self sufficiency and adulthood..doing for themselves.
She thought being a good mother was doing everything and anything for them or getting someone else to do it for them. Not so. You prepare them for life by teaching them bit by bit to do for themselves..to take careful measured RISKS. Not tit feeding them and thinking this is excellence and entitlement.
I remember asking her...why are you making these kids beds...they are olde enough to do it themselves and clean their own rooms. Stop breast feeding these kids and start weaning them.
Even momma cat will swat their kittens away from the tit when they get of a sufficient age....wean them.
Well..I think you get the point here. I am indeed long winded on many things.
As a Shepard, I have been trying to discern where I went wrong. Trying to steer my flock upon the correct path has been a daunting challenge
It is indeed a daunting challenge. Life itself is a daunting challenge.
You decide which is more important to you..Peace or Piece.
If you let a woman lead you ...you get the results you are describing.
I am not saying don't listen to your woman...for women often see things from a different perspective and sometimes a more practical direct perspective than do many men. But weight this out against the RISKS you must take to achieve these goals..often alone.
You are to lead your flock...not be lead. Otherwise you get the cart before the horse..continually...no sanctuary..no peace.
Hope this helps a bit,
Think things through,
Don't let others out emote you so that they never have to face the RISK and be responsible.
