Just a Thought - Embracing the crazy

You see it, right? 

You trust me, right? 

It’s indecent. It’s offensive. It contributes to the moral decline in society. It undermines family values. It sways our children away from wholesome values. It’s an attack to the very core of America. 

Can’t you see it? I must be the only one who cares. I can’t be the only one who cares about morality, decency, family values and protecting children. Am I the only one who cares?

Yes, I care. Yes, I see it. 

We need to do something about it. We can’t sit back and just allow this. We need to do something.

What should we do?

We’ve got to spread awareness. Make people understand. If we don’t, who will? No one, because no one cares like we do. 

Do you care about liberty? Do you care about morality? Do you care about government overreach? Do you care about family values? Do you care about children? Do you want to hold leaders accountable? Do you? Do you care? 

We care, too. Yes, we care. 

Then, we need to do something about it. 

What should we do? We’ve got to spread awareness. Reach more people. Make them understand. If we don’t, who will? No one, because no one cares like we do. 

Are you sure about this?

You don’t care about liberty. You don’t care about morality. You don’t care about government overreach. You don’t care about family values. You don’t care about children. You don’t care about holding leaders accountable. You’re one of those. You don’t care. You’re immoral. You’re indecent. What’s wrong with you? You’re part of the problem. 

I do care. 

Do you care about morality? Yes, I care about morality. 

Do you care about family values? Yes, I care about family values.

Do you care about decency? Yes, I care about decency. 

We’ve got to continue to stand together. If we don’t, who will? No one, because no one cares like we do. 

Brainwashing, that’s what we are experiencing in today’s society. Extremists band together and use words like “liberty” and “democracy” while striving for suppression (the opposite of liberty) and superiority (the opposite of created equal). 

Once these alliances are large enough, they target politicians. They say they are against government overreach and in favor of limited government control, but they themselves are working to control politicians using intimidation tactics: Vote our way or you will be replaced. 

Politicians will be swayed. We have the Age-Appropriate Materials Act of 2022 to prove it. Tennessee politicians were more worried about keeping their jobs than doing their jobs.

Everyone needs to think for themselves. Stop being mindless drones willing to follow the status quo and fearing retaliation. Do not embrace the crazy.
