Since the formal announcement on August 11, 2012 of Mitt Romney’s choice for VP, Paul Ryan, the I, Me & Myself crowd has been out in full, uncontrollable force. Unable to control their self-importance they have come out into, what I see as, three classifications;
- The clearly left leaning socialist worshipers (wanting only to do what they do best, mock),
- The self-professed Christians (who are practicing cafeteria faith),
- The heretofore rational thinkers (who are rational until they can’t be rational anymore).
The first group is no surprise, in terms of their rhetoric, however the force with which they hit the social sites as soon as Paul Ryan’s name was confirmed was entirely, uncontrollably, chaotic even for these terminal blatherers.
The second group have discarded the most important tenant of faith by insisting that their understanding is superior to God’s grasp of any given situation. As a Christian myself I know this is something that must be resisted daily if we are to truly put our trust in God. Only practicing that part of our faith will enable us to experience the manifestation of peace in our hearts.
The third group has blown their cover of rationality by throwing rationale out the window with their inability to remain rational when facing challenges to their own preconceived conclusions.
All these groups have taken to the social sites to espouse how unnerved they are not only with the Ryan choice, by a candidate they’re not fond of to begin with, but with the fact that their favorite candidate is now hopelessly off their wish list. For the Sunshine Patriots the Republican Convention is not going to be their “I told you so” moment when their candidate of choice becomes the nominee defying all odds. For the progressives’ it’s clear their false god is not easily sailing into a second term.
Well, too bad and so sad, for all three groups, but facts are facts and none of these groups has shown even the slightest comprehension of reality vs wishful thinking. The simple explanation for this is their inability to get out of their own way. This is expected from the left but certainly not from those who profess they are Christians, even in the face of adversity, or those who profess a willingness to embrace rational thought no matter the events.
The sorry state of these people would be of little concern but for the importance of this election season. When I read comments that show an inability or unwillingness to put the country before I, Me & Myself then I cringe at the knowledge that this oversimplified thought, the self-centeredness, the immaturity that gave us Obama to begin with is still alive and thriving.
Regardless of the facts, regardless of the hardships, regardless of the enemy at the gate, these people are still hopelessly ensnared in the worship of I, Me & Myself. Will those who call themselves Christians begin to practice what they preach? Will those who practiced rational thought come back to their senses?
Unless the second and third groups do regain a semblance of self-control, rather than self-absorption, they will be the reason we will either lose this election to the enemy or it will be so close the outcome will be delayed and fraud will gain a foothold on the election results. We will witness civil unrest & lawlessness. What a shame if the very things we have warned each other about do occur because of these infantile reactions.
Holding onto one’s self-centered set of principals and childish misery because of the choices we have ignores the big picture and it’s suicide. Those who refuse to vote for the Republican nominee out of their sense of moral superiority are condoning abortion, treason, communism, freedom to worship and the entire Bill of Rights. Never mind the destruction of our laws, as in the U.S. Constitution, along with abandoning our brave military men and women. This is neither rational nor Christian.
This is what sowing the seeds of I, Me & Myself will yield for the self-worshipers. Unfortunately, the rest of America will also have to reap what they sow. I have no illusions that the first group are not worth giving much thought to but, the second & third groups do have hope providing they can get out of their own way in time for the all important November 2012 elections. This is the election of a lifetime and, yes, it’s more important than our petty preoccupations and self-serving human natures.
I’d like to add the link to an audio of Mark Levin who is much better at articulating the seriousness of this election and the utter futility of fighting the facts. We either continue our involvement as citizens of this Republic, with the tools we have, or we give up and hand it over to those who desire only her demise.
