The Road Less Traveled 2

Did you read the first part of The Road Less traveled?

I mentioned I could very easily watch the CNN’s, MSNBC’s, and the rest of those mainstream sources. If that’s what you do, there’s nothing wrong with that.

For me personally, I was trained and educated in the importance of unbiased reporting. So, I was shocked when I realized our major new outlets or sources were in fact biased and in some way, politically slanted. The most important thing is delivering the facts to the public.

I don’t sit here today and say all the news is fake, but I do question the accuracy. I do question the talking points of focus, and I do question a news story loaded with personal opinions. I don’t like the ostracization and casting out of those who seek alternate news sources.

If the mainstream news is biased and slanted then we have no other choice but to seek alternate sources if the truth is what we want. Life is short, and it goes fast. I don’t want to waste any more time.

Speaking of truth..

Jesus represented the road less traveled.

Today, is the observance of the “resurrection” of Jesus. Today is Easter Sunday, the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead three days after his crucifixion.

After isolating myself, meditating, and many hours and days of contemplation, I arrive at the conclusion that if you only take away from his story that he was crucified and willingly died for our sins, then for whatever reason, you’re leaving a lot on the table.

Jesus was the truth. He spoke the truth, he represented the truth, and he was hated for it. “What shall I do with this man,” Pontus Pilate asked the crowd. “Crucify him,” they yelled.

But he has done nothing wrong. We have, over here, Barabbas, a known criminal. Do we crucify the criminal, or do we crucify Jesus, a man who has done nothing wrong?

Jesus! Crucify Jesus!

That’s how much people hated him.

What is the Purpose of Government?

[This post was written on June 19th, but I reposted it because I just heard someone today say, “I have to wear my mask. What can I do? I’m just one person. I can’t do nothing. I have to do it for my job.” I told her some things are more important than your job. The more people believe they’re insignificant and have no power, the more we give way to the collective and eventually, socialism that will turn into communism. In Pennsylvania the government lifted the illegal and unconstitutional mask order on the 28th of June, but people are still holding on to it like it’s a joke.]

Some people may not agree with what they’re about to read, but it’s the truth. If you ever said, “America is in trouble,” or “we as citizens living in America today are facing more issues and a deeper crisis than ever before,” then this post will leave you with an answer as to why things are the way they are.

“If natural rights do not derive from government, what is the reason for government? The Declaration of Independence answers this question:

“…to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

The concept is that government exists to protect and secure our God-given rights. That was a unique idea that is still not understood by most attorneys and lawmakers today. It means that the main role of government is a negative one. That is, it is there to stop others from infringing on your rights.

It is not there to provide welfare for certain groups, to tell everyone what to do, or to set national policies. Government is certainly not preforming its task when it takes rights away, such as taking away the right to work unless one obtains an occupational license.

The opposite of this doctrine is called SOCIALISM. It presumes that government knows best and the rights of the individual must be sacrificed to “the collective good.” (What happened to me at Amazon, and millions of other people everyday) This was the basis of the Soviet Union and is more accepted in Europe.

The American founders broke away from the socialist idea in asserting the spiritual concept that government exists to protect and further the potential of each individual. In spite of its failure, socialist thought is common in America, especially in academic circles and the Democratic Party.”

I hope people are starting to awaken. We’ve strayed, and it saddens me to see how many sheep there are out here.

Respecting Neutrality

What’s up everyone? I hope you’re all enjoying your morning on this beautiful Sunday in August. It’s a little cool for the Summer, nevertheless, we’ll take it!

So, I just wanted to say, and I’m sure a lot of you know this already, but I always speak from a neutral standpoint. I do give my personal opinion on certain things, but of course, I never push my beliefs onto anyone. It’s your choice to agree or disagree with me, but either way, your opinions and feedback are always accepted. We welcome and truly enjoy the dialogue here between writers and readers. Thank you.

Have a wonderful day!
