I am going to make some of you angry with me because I am going to write some things that may challenge you somewhat. To start with, understand the United States of America as known in the past is gone. The government we have today is not a government of the people, for the people and by the people any longer, this government does not exist. The Democratic and Republican party leadership are not working for you, protecting your rights, freedoms, or your futures. Talk Radio personalities such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, Alex Jones, feed off this complicity operating in the country today. A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson says it well:
“Alas for America as I must so often say, the ungirt, the diffuse, the profuse, procumbent, one wide ground juniper, out of which no cedar, no oak will rear up a mast to the clouds! It all runs to leaves, to suckers, to tendrils, to miscellany. The air is loaded with poppy, with imbecility, with dispersion, & sloth”.
These talking heads flourish because they present to you opposition of the “other side”. While the other side uses primarily television to counter what the so-called conservative radio people present, they generally fall short of presenting orchestrated programs for you to attend at a price such as Beck who profits handsomely from your “Lemming” Adherence” to his latest concoction. What in the end have they done for you besides talking about the issues, (which are mostly government), that make you mad? Have they come up with and carried out any ultimate solutions to those issues they feed you? Instead, they tell about what products you should buy, they tell you what to think, they tell you to support or not support a policy or a person, and they tell you about their wealth if you listen close enough. And where did their wealth come from? You! Advertisers list ads on their programs based on ratings so the game is always on to do whatever it takes to make you listen by constantly coming up with new schemes to keep you in the fold and entertained while they meanwhile live in ways very much like the people they criticize on air. Pastors, Ministers, Evangelists employ the same methods to grow their churches or grow their notoriety through books and movements created through their books. They buy large stadiums to convert to mega-churches; they go on television talk formats to sell their wares and to garner acclaim from the viewers as though they were stars in the world of religion and that they somehow have a closer walk with God. These people to live pretty high off the hog as well and again prosper from the masses who buy in to their propaganda and products. How many of these people advocate independence from their programs and dependence on the Lord? Talk is cheap. The reason for the chaos is that men and women are incapable of seeing see through the deception of this world and the one responsible while we continue to rely on fleshly things and people.
