Stunned

Next month marks the third year of the Modern Day Redneck blog and I have made a point to keep politics out of my writings. There are many more blogs out there who's writers are a lot more knowledgeable and more articulate than I am to speak on that subject.

Saying all that I feel I need to at least acknowledge the most recent events so here we go.
After last night I have come to a conclusion, I am a minority. The way I think and my values are in the bottom percent of America. This nation has changed and I don't fit in anymore. This new nation believes in government hand outs, killing babies, same sex marriage and the removal of Christianity from the history books. They believe I do not have the right to protect myself, to keep what is mine or hang on to the money that I earned. My voice does not matter anymore, it is looked upon as I am a terrorist .

I am surprised and saddened by the way our media is so openly bias and the people are okay with it. The past four years with all the things that went with it seemed to have never even happen. My party would have been strung up and burnt at the stake for just half of what this current administration has done, wait, they were.
This country has changed. People used to stay busy leaving no time to get get brain washed by the media. Now days, nobody does anything except come home and sit on the couch, watching the derogation of our nation and believing every word. They take what they see and read as the truth, not ever following through and taking the time to learn more before coming to a conclusion. If it's on the news or on the internet it must be true.    

The Republican party died last night. The Overton window has shifted so much that real American values are skewed to where that party will have to follow it or stay dead. The problem with chasing the window is that you leave behind what is most important, our freedoms.

I am saddened for our nation, our people and our religions.
This is not the America so many have died for. That's all I got to say about it.

  1. What you said sums up what some see and realize. Thank you for taking the time to share with those of us who feel like a foreigner in our homeland.

  3. "Stunned" is a perfect title. "Unbelieveable" would be a good one too.

  4. "I feel your pain" but I won't change my direction, just add to the list the people who can kiss my butt.

  5. Responsibility, honesty, integrity have become a minority, so it does not surprise me (although saddens me) the way this election went.

  6. "The people" have spoken, but GOD always has the last word.

    Yesterday may have been the last chance we had to change.

    "The people" held their figurative middle finger up to GOD and we will just have to wait and see what happens.

    1. Matt, we all know how this ends and we win. We will suffer along with them all but we still win.

    2. I keep telling myself that HE let this happen for a reason, even if I don't understand it.
      I agree that yesterday was the day the country was defeated from within.

      And they are deleting a lot more than Christianity from the school books. That's part of why kids are so dumb.

      I thank God every day that we were able to retire and move when we did (though I wish we could have done it sooner).

      Have a blessed weekend, all. ♥

  7. I don't really follow politics but I was totally stunned this morning when my daughter told me who had won. It's been a depressing 4 years and now I have no hope for the next 4.

    1. No hope for now on as far as that goes Becky. America has turned a corner and there is no way to go back.

  8. I think you hit the nail on the head! I don't sit in front of the tv but I did last night until 11pm and went to bed bawling! I don't understand this america we live in and frankly I don't want to! Very disappointing :(

    1. Kelly, I don't get it. They still blame Bush for all of what Obama has messed up.

  9. Good post MDR. I agree with all you said and especially about the Overton Window. More people should read up on it.

  11. Yes, but we aren't alone. It's a small sliver of hope but it is HOPE. Not sure what to do next but for today I'm trying to let the dust settle so I can think.

    1. Unknown, The only hope we have right now is that we still control one part of the system. At least we did not just hand this guy a blank check again.

  12. You (and me) are a minority BUT if you look at the raw numbers we are only a slim minority. I think we have to stop counting states as one entity when adding up electoral votes..it's foolish. Look at the map..it's painted with red...if only those who provide the food had more say...

    1. Carolyn, It's the high density city population that are brain washed that does it. Look even closer at the county demographics. There is just not enough folks out in the country to have a say.
      I agree if the food producers all went on strike it would show how much power they do have.

  13. I have gotten to where I don't like telling anybody what I do, have, think,or believe you never know who will turn you into "big brother" and it only going to get worse

  14. I still think elections are rigged and have been for some time. If all blacks vote black no matter what then why did all the predominate black states such as Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi vote republican? Obama got all the "key" states, kind of fishy. Take another look at that map. The demographics of those states, black population is higher than white. Obama should have won those states also. But they had to show that Romney had some kind of a chance just to make it appear fair. Even though, i am a Ron Paul supporter, and did not vote for Romney (he would just carry on like Obama). They sure did put on a show for us, so we could focus on how divided we are as a nation. And that is what it is - a show that will continue until we turn it off.

    Romney would have been the white Obama. So dont be sad about Obama and the Red and Blue of the map. Be sad for the rest of America that is so stupid to suck up to this freak show. Your vote did not matter yesterday, and neither did mine.

    1. Chickengirl, I agree. In the back of my mind I know the leader of the free world is hand picked and what we do in the voters booth is all for show. I could go on and on with that. But there is a little of me that still believes in the American dream and for what so many have fought and died for.
      Where did all this go wrong? This was not how this great country was suppose to be.

    3. I agree Anony, everyone should vote if it matters or not. Too many have died for our right to do so.

  15. I didn't watch the returns last night. Too much speculation before announcements are made. And, they (the media), just repeat themselves until I can't stand it.

    I awoke to the news that things will get worse before it gets better, this morning at 5:00a. I cried a few tears & am still walking around with a 'heavy heart'.

    1. Thanks for the comment DFW, it is good to hear from you.
      I am not sad because he got reelected. I am sad for the direction of our country. The first time he was a novelty, the second time means he got a pass and we have decided to be a liberal nation wanting the government to take over our lives.

  16. I can't believe how much this has affected me, we know as Christians that it's going to get alot worse before it gets better, yet to actually see it coming true is shocking. Guess it doesn't help matters that I am reading Rawles latest book "Founders", sheesh, I need some lighter reading! We're in this together MDR, thanks for taking the time to write such a great blog!

    1. Thank you Shar for being apart of this blog.
      I do know the end result in all this. It was like when the wife wanted to go see Titanic. I told her why because we already knew the ending, it sank. I guess this is the same way, We know we will be saved in the end. It's the fact I am on this boat and watching it sink is what gets to me.

  20. The people who could have stopped this four years ago were too busy being politically correct and expecting the country to bond, blend, and become one.

    Well, we are 'one' now. One country of takers, looking at the rest to give, or bleed if they don't.

    What is missing is a huge feeling of shame for allowing america to be bought with free cell phones.
