Cognitive dissonance

People who feed at the public trough are referred to as "public servants".

Biblically, we have been taught that it is honorable to serve your fellow man.

Throughout my lifetime I have heard the statement "There is honor among thieves", used a lot.

Going back to the beginning of this great country, we learn that our elected law making officials were to be identified as "honorable" because they were serving their fellow man and this great country.

When I hear the term "public servant" a picture pops up in my mind...

I can guaran-damn-tee you, the picture of an honorable public servant is not someone who is paid more than the average citizen makes.

To my military mind it is a no-brainer that so many people fight to get elected to public office...

They get to tell everyone else how to live, and make sure they are paid enormous salaries to verify that they are above everyone else.


That do not sound like a servant to me.

Sounds like the inmates are running the asylum!

Onerous taxation is morally reprehensible...

Refusing to exploit our own crude oil supplies to remove us from onerous suppliers who use the money to attack our country and our people is morally reprehensible...

Taking earnings from honest working people to give to lazy, worthless people is morally reprehensible...

Taking private property from citizens under the pretense of "eminent domain" is morally reprehensible...

Sadly, what we have, today, in our elected officials are not "honorable public servants" but instead "dishonest public enemies".

Wanna know why this country is experiencing so many earth quakes, and in places where we have not seen them before?

Simply, it is our founding fathers turning over in their graves as they observe the destruction of what they worked so hard to bring about.

Many times over the years I have heard the expression "You never know what you have until it is gone".

Yup, when this great country of private property, and citizen government is gone...

We are gonna realize what we had, but it is gonna be too late.

Mythology has the phoenix rising out of the ashes, but in real life, as history has shown us over and over again, when a country goes down, it never comes back up again.

May God have mercy upon us.
