Apathy is no longer a luxury

Apathy – lack of emotion 2 lack of interest; listless condition; unconcern; indifference.

Historically, Americans have been apathetic about the whole political and moral processes of this country . And guess what? Now it has bitten us squarely on the butt.

Look at who’s in charge of the presidency, and of blue and even purple states. Look at how these so-called leaders have turned morality upside down. They call perversion virtue and encourage lawlessness. To paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi, there’s never been a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

For far too long we farmed out the task of maintaining our liberty to politicians of whom at least half are of questionable moral character. Let’s just put it this way, lots of them are compromised. They’re either bought-off, blackmailed or both.

Are they all this way? No, there are some good ones whose actions match their speeches. However, many have mastered the skill of saying what their constituents want to hear only to later stab voters in the back. Can I get an amen, conservatives?

How do politicians stab people in the back by not doing what they promised. In the case of Republicans it means simply beating Democrats and defending the Constitution.

But over and over again Republicans have caved to the Democrats leading many conservatives to start asking, “Why is it when Republicans control the White House and Congress,we make little progress with our policies ,while the Democrat agenda advances even when they’re out of power?” This has led many to the conclusion that there is no two party system, only a uniparty.

Both parties are merely different sides of the same coin . This uniparty serves the purpose of protecting and enriching the interests of Washington D.C. , while ignoring the people.

We were once blind and trusting of the parties, thinking , “Yeah,that’s just Washington.”But then the people elected Donald Trump President and suddenly the masks came off.

We witnessed lies presented as truth by the Dems and the propaganda media such as Russian collusion, and the Steele Dossier . We listened and waited for Republicans to stand against such outlandish charges only to hear crickets from the leaders of both houses of congress.

We then noticed that despite Trump having a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, his policies were slow-walked and even blocked by members of his own party!

This knocked the scales from the eyes of many patriots who realized our side were not the white hats.

This awakening also spread to talk radio which, led by the late, great Rush Limbaugh, used to be a trusted alternative to the liberal bias of the mainstream media. Now we were hearing pundits we trusted for years blasting Trump and his supporters.

Fox News’ early calling of Arizona before polls closed in 2020 was the final slap in the face to constitutional patriots. I believe this was when freedom loving Americans began to awaken from their apathetic stupor.

The draconian Covid lockdowns and vaccine mandates then caused people to think the unthinkable:governments tasked to serve the people may actually hate us. This was uncomfortable to even consider, but facts were undeniable once you were willing to go there.

Now that many of us are awake, we see how desperate things are for America . Now we are witnessing the consequences of our trust to anyone or anything other than God almighty.

Believe it or not, I thank the LORD for where we are right now. Sure , it’s depressing , angering and even scary with the winds of war blowing. But at least we clearly see the evil that’s entrenched itself in America and Western Civilization.

It’s like a home remodel. You must know the extent of any damage to target the job properly.

This is the case with America. Now more and more people are realizing we can’t politic our way out of this dark situation.

Our only hope is re-embracing Biblical principles and the Constitution. America was founded as a God-fearing nation. We need to revisit what it means to be accountable to God’s authority through prayer and reading the Bible.

We also must sit down and learn our Constitution. Americans need to read for themselves not only what their God-given rights are, but also the limited power of the federal government. Stop with apathy of not doing so because it requires disciplined study. Learn it! Love it! Live it!

Freedom doesn’t just happen. It requires passion and determination to maintain it. This means a willingness to protect family ,friends and your way of life. Indifference sets in when people lose this level of love and think only of their own comfort.

Apathy has never been a spark for liberty. All apathy does is give the keys to those whose only goal is to enslave you.

It is a dangerous place when we no longer care what our leaders are doing or worse that we believe we can do nothing about it. As a Christian I always turn to the Bible where we find God’s truth and the truth is, there is much we can do to turn the tide of apathy. First, we must elect officials that meet our standards. If we turn to 1 Timothy we find the instructions on how to determine if a person is qualified for leadership within the church but if one really looks at the qualifications, one would want those qualifications in our elected officials. Second, we have to care. If we do not care what issues as a country we are facing we do become apathetic. We start to say “what does it matter” or “it’s not that important .” Care about small and large problems and demand it of our leaders. Finally, vote! Our voices will never be heard if we do not go to the ballot box. When we see turnouts in the teens to 30% range it screams apathy! Christians are often the worst at voting. They believe in the power of prayer but fail to understand prayer requires action as well as faith. Voting is action…let’s see what happens when we put our faith to work. As James, the half brother of Jesus states in James 2:17 “in the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

Dex, …AMEN! A free society is only free, as long as its moral values are upheld. 10 second clips on TIK-TOK and Youtube have taken the place of time spent in prayer or reading the good book! Perhaps a day of reckoning is close? Somehow for America to survive, the power of the people must be restored to a place where we can unshackle ourselves from these oppressors that pretend to represent us….. have our backs? I vote for that day and quickly!

I should have read this post before the Declaration post…’re spot on as usual.

The caverns and tunnels under the foundation of a moral society have been dug for years now without anyone noticing. And now, we are losing our foundation of morality and personal responsibility.

If I want a mile out of you, I’m going to ask for an inch at a time. Before you know it, I’ll have my mile. Apathy is a disease that only grows until it cannot.
