Hello my friend and welcome back! I have a dear friend who works for the Government and kindly included me in this email addressed to family and friends. With his permission, I’m going to post it here today. Let me also add that I had a reader last week complain, that I should not include my political views in my post. However, my political views are a part of who I am, as is my religion. I think this is probably true of most Preppers, as we must keep an eye on politics in order to truly be prepared. While these are my friend’s thoughts, I agree with him 100% as I think most or you will. Feel free to pass it around for others to read, as well. Until next time, please stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared.
EMAIL FROM TF:
I swear that sometimes it feels like only 1% of us working in the Federal Government are Conservative. I’ve worked for U.S. Presidents on both sides of the aisle since Bush 41, and never have I seen it like it is today. There are a handful of us, in this Embassy, that get together from time to time to sip a Single Malt and complain over a fine Cigar. Below is the note I wrote to them following comments from the WORST Sec State I have ever worked for…..
To all my family and friends,
I’d like to go on the record as being one of those “Basket of deplorable people” Hillary Clinton has such disdain for.
To help clarify what deplorable traits I possess that are so revolting to the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party in general, I will confess them here for all to see.
Let me start with the three “F’s”: Faith, Family, and Freedom.
Faith: Like our founding fathers, I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. That means They believed in a higher power. A power that all men answer to. They did not believe in “protected classes of people”. I do not believe in a “Ruling Class”. I do not believe that special preference should be granted to a group of people based on the color of their skin, political affiliation, or gender orientation. I believe in God’s Law and the U.S. Constitution which is based on Judaeo-Christian values. I believe that all men will one day answer to God and his son Jesus Christ and I offer no apology to anyone that believes otherwise. My faith in non-negotiable.
Family: I believe in the Godly institution of marriage and that the most important goal of a husband and wife is the raising of Go5dly children. While community and society have a role in being a safety net for family and supporting the development of children. Governments ARE NOT the parents, and Government MAY NOT impose Government sponsored values.
Freedom: To quote the Bible and a friend of mine (Joel Joseph of the Prophetic Scroll) John 8:32 “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Being in the Spirit and in the truth, by the Spirit, will have the evidence of liberty and freedom! The result will be a degree of lightness. By liberty, freedom and lightness, I’m not suggesting a lack of discipline or order. The Spirit of God will also lead you into repentance, correction, discipline and order.
The formula is: Spirit and truth = liberty and freedom.
The reverse formula is legalism, control and error = bondage.
A person (or Party) not in the Spirit would produce bondage and control rather than liberty. They would produce control based on subordination and subjection rather than freedom. Their truth would be incomplete or full of holes, or just plain error.
You can see these principles at work in the world. The best example is seen in political systems like Marxist, Leninist Communism, various forms of socialism and the like. They all operate on mass control. A free market system has liberty and freedom as its main characteristic.
Historically, the communistic socialist systems have all been anti-God, anti-the Bible and the free market nations have all been open protagonist of the gospel.
Entire ethnic nations, races and groups have been and still are under the power of domination and control. Their freedom is long gone. Some of them have known nothing else for generations.
So what does the world see in a man who believes in Faith, Family, and Freedom? They see a Godly man. A man who believes in God, works hard, supports his family, gives generously to charity and volunteers his time for the less fortunate. They see a man who will support the underdog, but will not be taken for granted by those unwilling to help themselves. They see a man fiercely independent but willing to suffer the consequence of that independence and not blame others for his failure.
Hillary Clinton, I am a Trump supporter and one of those “Deplorables” you hold in such contempt. I hold great value to the things that made this country great. Things that you deplore and it is exactly why I plan to vote against you.
