Conflicts to Come

People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies. – Don Miguel Ruiz

As 2019 arrives so does the coming disruption of life. With a split Congress it is fairly certain that not much will get done over the next two years. Which means that you are on your own – finally.

So many people are accustomed to getting freebies from the government they forgot how to be independent and self-reliant. I’m here to tell you a little secret: You are stronger than you think you are. You don’t need a government handout, all you really need is that object located between your ears, an object called a brain.

I watched a movie which concerned the element of artificial intelligence, AI. Of course this AI destroyed the world and all of mankind because it calculated that we are not capable of controlling our own destiny. I say this because we are having two elements being thrust upon us:

The evolving of AI in our daily lives, and the gridlock of Washington D.C.

So which is worse? In my opinion both are equal. Equally bad. But this blog is not about AI, rather Congress and you. I’ll save AI for a later date.

The House is controlled by Democrats whose sole mission is to destroy Donald Trump. Why destroy him? Because they don’t like him. He is not one of them, the elites who consider themselves far above us deplorables and Bible thumpers.

According to the main stream media and Washington elites, we are the scum of the earth and must be eliminated from existence. Just ask Jane Curtin who declared all conservatives and Republicans should die to make life better for everyone else. Really? Not surprising as this is the mental attitude of every leftists on every continent of the world.

When the election happened last November I was, and I admit it, devastated… At first. As I thought about it I began to change my mind and have come to believe this is a great gift, influenced by Divine Providence, and cheating Democrats. Yes I know the Democrats cheated this election, they had to, but also a lot of Republicans, mostly Trump haters, left the Congress. To that I say good riddance.

So now we have a split Congress, and total gridlock. Hence you and I are caught in the middle of this feud. Good. I know where I stand and I don’t need government telling me how to live my life. I have to fight that battle with the dictators of California.

You have to make a decision, live your life or cry over spilt government. A Congress woman recently declared that Christmas is the holy time when we must ensure our government is provided for.

Really? Yep, Jackson Lee said that. I always thought that Christmas was the time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, not the lunacy of government. Silly me. But I’m a deplorable and totally below the intelligence level of Jackson Lee and all Democrats for that matter.

The point is, and I’m going to repeat it, you don’t need government to live your life. You have everything you need right between your ears, all you have to do is think.

Now I realize that thinking is far beyond the concept of ill-educated children, politicians and elites. The only thing that matters to them are feelings, emotions, and Captain Planet. By feeling good about themselves they have solved the problems facing individuals and all problems of the world. Have a problem? Raise taxes to solve it. And then the liberal say to themselves: Man do I feel good about solving that issue.

Yet feelings don’t solve problems, or put food on the table.

Nope, that requires work, good old fashion work. Something our elites find beneath them. Yet we deplorables go to work, provide for our families, solve problems, and struggle with the daily elements of life.

What surprises me, but it shouldn’t, is the majority of us live our life in a very conservative manner… yet many of us vote for own destruction. Why is that? You must decide for yourself if you want destruction or life. Enslavement or freedom.

As this year progresses I think I will explore the concept of voting for our own death and living our life in a very conservative manner. Hum… I will have to ponder that for a while.

No matter what happens in 2019 one thing is sure, there will be conflicts between political parties and those conflicts will filter down to everyday life. So you have a choice, you can either let these coming clashes affect you or you can choose to rise above it and make 2019 a very good year on a personal level.

Remember there are things you can control and things you can’t. Your job is discern the difference and travel the path better for you and your family. I have chosen my path, my direction which is to be the best I can be and accept nothing less. I know there will be challenges ahead because there always challenges regardless of the year. Even great years have challenges so our job is to learn from the past so we don’t make the same mistakes again. Too bad our politicians don’t learn the same lessons.

You control your own emotions which means you have influence over your destiny and your life. The question is: Will you recognize the power you already have and let your power control your life instead of letting outside forces control you.

Think about it.
