Dare to Dream

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. – Colin Powell

Do you dare to dream? To make your life better and achieve something of importance? I think we all do, in fact I know we all do. The question then becomes do we follow our dreams or not?

Life is built on dreams, always has been, always will be. And when those dreams become goals our life, our world changes.

Dreams can be positive or negative for by themselves they have no power, yet when acted upon our dreams can change the world for better or for worse. It all depends upon the individual and their motivation.

This country was founded on dreams and for over two hundred years those dreams have been mostly positive. In fact those dreams have transformed the Earth completely, and for the better.

But now we have an entity of evil who wants to destroy the effects of those positive dreams. You know this to be true because you hear it in the news, the fake news every day, just how rotten this country is.

We are constantly told that we are the most horrible country ever to exist on planet earth, and those forces are relentless in their attacks. In fact we are so horrible we should not even exist. So the question, the overriding question is: Do you, you the individual, do you believe these stories, these lies?

And they are lies, every one of them. How do I know, simple just look how you live your life. Do you consider yourself a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, a horrible person? I bet the answer is no, a resounding no. Yet daily you are called all these names, and worse, because you disagree with a policy, idea, or philosophy of someone. And disagreement cannot, will not, be tolerated.

So let us examine for a moment the forces against us, why they are against us, and what we can do about it.

First the forces themselves:

  • The main stream media takes the top spot as they are the driving force for everything and everyone else.
  • The politicians take second spot because the main media tells them what to do, how to think, and how to act.
  • The Judiciary takes third spot for like the politicians they too are driven by the main stream media. They are influenced by the stories they read and the editorials for or against their stand on any particular subject.
  • Agendas take the fourth and final spot, agendas being liberal or conservative. Agendas are driven by the main stream media, Hollywood, and the fraudulent “pop” culture. These agendas drive the thinking and education of our country but more importantly they drive our youth.

All of these elements combined either destroy our dreams or change our dreams into something undesirable. We make the mistake of thinking no one can influence us but that is the danger, for it is a subtle danger as these forces attack us every day, wearing us down, weakening us, and eventually they take over our thinking.

There is an element in this country that has earned the name “Snowflakes” and with good reason. These are our children of collage age who have never learned to think for themselves, never had to take responsibility for themselves, and have been raised to expect the world to bow down before them.

Who is responsible for this? The parents. Most of these parents never learned how to be parents for their parents are children of the sixties and that generation are now the leaders of the country.

But the Snowflakes are not the only ones causing trouble; you can add Black Lives Matter, Occupation Wall Street, and Antifa to the mix as well. The last group being the worst of the bunch.

What these groups all have in common is their agenda: Liberalism. A way of thinking influenced by the main stream media, politicians, and enforced by the Judiciary. Make no mistake about it, liberalism can be, and often is, deadly in both the mental and physical realm we call life.

All these forces combine to make one believe just how evil this country is. Eventually this constant barrage of negative messaging begins to have an effect… until something happens, something drastic. And that something just happened: Hurricane Harvey.

What happened with Harvey proved all the negativism wrong. All those messages of an evil country just left the stage. Oh they are still around, but their activity has been curtailed by the actions of people, the actions of Texas.

Harvey was horrible, and Irma promises to be just as bad yet one thing comes to light: The power of the people, the greatness of positive influence, and the examples these elements illustrate.

As I write this Irma bears down on Florida and will surely bring wide destruction, just as it did with the islands of the Caribbean. Yet no matter what happens, how much destruction occurs one thing cannot be destroyed: The Spirit of the United States.

This is what the world does not understand, and will never understand for the world does not realize just how powerful our dreams are. But not only the world, liberalism and all its evil forms refuse to acknowledge the power of the dream, the American dream. A dream embedded in the power of freedom, an element the rest of the world has never, and will never have.

I know the world has freedom generally speaking, but in the grand scheme of things it has never been so. For thousands of years the way of the world has been dictatorship, kings, monarchs, terrorist, and enslavement. That is until the United States came alone. A new concept, inspired by a dream, and built on the foundations of freedom. A way of life that has been with us for two hundred and forty plus years and still going strong.

If the elements of liberalism think, and believe, they can destroy this spirit of freedom they are mistaken. Harvey proved this.

Property is destroyed, and lives are lost, but the dream lives on. No matter what the main stream media says, what Hollywood tells us, what politicians demand of us, the dream to move on, to grow, to rebuild cannot by destroyed.

Hence my question to you is: What is your dream? What do you want out of life? Yet the bigger question is: Are you prepared to work for it?

I think what scares most people away from their dreams is the concept of “sacrifice.” Is sacrifice required in order to obtain the dream? Some, yes, but not as much as you have been led to believe. Hollywood has done a great job of making success evil, all while enjoying the elements of success. Hypocritical at best, two-faced for sure.

Family and love need not be sacrificed for success; however time, your precious time, must be. But is applying your time a sacrifice? Think of it this way: Time will pass, and things will change regardless of your desires. Is it not better to control the time and change to your advantage rather let time and change control you?

Your children will grow, you and your spouse will grow old together, bills will be paid, and life will go on. Your dreams are yours, not the main stream media, not Hollywood, not some politicians, but yours. Yet dreams require work and they require diligence. So if a politician tries to strip you of your dream is it not your responsibility to hold that politician accountable? For if a politician steals your dream is it not the same as stealing your money? I think the term is taxation. Taking money from you to support the deadbeats, and then telling you just how rotten you are because you have a job, have dreams, and are the winners of life’s lottery. Really?

Politicians manipulate and they do it on the orders of the main stream media. Yet you have the power to overcome this obstacle for you are a free spirit, with a mind to dream, and a determination to move ahead regardless of some worthless politician or newspaper article.

Politicians can and many should be, replaced. It is your responsibility to help make that so. For if you are being denied your dreams, you must ask: Who and why. Answer those questions and watch your world change.

You have the power, the politicians work for you, not the main stream media. You can have or fire any political entity via a revolution, a revolution that happens every two years and it is called an election.

I encourage you to take your dreams and turn them into reality. Life, true life, begins with a dream, so I ask: Do you dare to dream, and if so how big?
