Responsibility is a funny thing. Most people (most Americans) do not possess it. It ‘s not something that our Federal Government can hand out, like their glorious food stamps.
Today, as we watch the height of irresponsibility in California, think to yourself of Detroit, Newark, places in Ohio, and the many other bastions of liberalism. Think of the Democrat Party, itself, and where it has (is) taken us. When you are getting lectured to by someone from one of those States, just remember to take it with a grain of salt. They are just so full of bull shit that they can’t be taken seriously. Self-proclaimed Patriot, or not.
Understand that it (irresponsibility) is the hallmark and ultimate goal of the progressive movement. Destruction is the name of their game. California is just the most recent example, and the sequoias, that have survived every catastrophe thrown at them for over 3,000 years, its most recent victims.
Do you think that our friends from Mexico give two hoots about them? Do you think that all of the pot smokers care? Do you think that the blacks will lift a finger to save them? (Yeah, about like they saved themselves down in New Orleans.)
No, they’d rather be out there killing whitey, or starting some sort of damned race war where they get slaughtered by the tens of thousands.
With more and more of the ‘responsible’ people of California moving out each day, there just aren’t enough people left there to stem the tide. With them goes the money. With them, goes the care, the love, and the willingness to sacrifice.
California is lost. Frankly, if the rest of us can learn by their irresponsibility, I am happy for them. Only ashes will be their reward for not being responsible caretakers of what was left them.
Our concern should now be to contain the remnants of California. To keep Californians in California.
Along those lines, we have recently had two such people join our community in the past few months. One bought 3,100 acres to farm on. He could no longer run his business in California. The other is an elderly gentleman who moved here from Washington state. Prior to that, he lived in California. He, too, has had it with progressivism. They both seem fine, but they will have to be watched and brought along. Both have been in a system that has degraded their Americanism. That said, we should not let these people infect the rest of us. It is too late for major parts of the country. The Northeast, the rest of the West Coast, and much of the Midwest are also gone. However, we should realize just how much is left for the Progressives to destroy, and ourselves be responsible.
We must always, and at so many levels, Resist! Not just from obvious fools, such as the tyranny of government or the evils of Progressives, but also from within. I must be prepared to both recognize, and resist the advances of those who would profess to be with us, but really are wolves in sheep clothing. For they will be quick to mislead us into traps from which we may not return. Gather your family and close friends near to you. Trust few. Be yourself, and teach those around you to be, responsible.
