A Country of Followers

By Terry McGahey

First off let me say, I realize that I haven't written anything lately, having a wife that passed away as well as having back and neck problems which haven't allowed me to sit at the computer for a very long period of time has been the main cause of this.

Even though it is not comfortable sitting here, I have had enough of what's going on with many of our citizens within this country and can no longer keep silent about it.

Anyone who has read my articles in the past knows that I am not a Democrat nor a Republican, I am an independent Constitutional Conservative who firmly believes in our forefathers vision of this country, the law of our land as written in the Constitution, and not in the word twisting attorney's versions of this fine document. This document was written in plain English, and one can see that if one has any common sense what so ever.

Normally in my articles I would address our politicians and their policies, but in this article I am addressing the subject of many of our own people who have become nothing but followers and believers of anything said by our politicians on both sides of the aisle as well as the media. Many politicians today make accusations against the other party without fact or proof, and many of our citizens buy into what they say no matter if they are right or wrong.

So many people today have become nothing but followers instead of getting off their lazy butts and researching things for themselves. With the computer age we live in, it is very simple to research the voices and views of our politicians in order to actually realize if their opinions fit within the parameters of our Constitution. Many people just believe the rhetoric that spews out of the mouths of politicians and hate mongers rather than think for themselves.

Just a short time ago a politically motivated nut shot one of our representatives at a baseball practice. Why, because of the hate that has been fueled by politicians and hate mongers which has seeped into the minds of people who just believe in what they hear without question. People such as the shooter at the baseball practice have violent tendencies within their heart in the first place, and the hate which we see today by our own people just fuels their desire into committing violence upon others.

Much of the problem stems directly from the people because our chickenhearted politicians are so afraid of loosing their jobs. Rather than do what's right, they have a tendency to keep it going or not stand up and say enough is enough.

Just take a look at protesters who have been paid to protest by the likes of George Soros who is nothing but a Socialist/Communist who would like nothing more than to see the downfall of this country. Those people, like sheep, go along with it because it's easy money. Not because it's right or wrong, but because it's easy money and they believe whatever they hear.

No, I am no longer putting the blame on all of the politicians. Some yes, but I am now putting the blame on the people themselves who are willing to believe anything they hear rather than research it for themselves.

Like the lambs being led to the slaughter the ignorant followers are jumping off the cliff into Socialism which is only one small step into Communism. If you are a follower, no matter which side you believe in, and you are reading this, it's time for you to understand, you are the problem and not the solution.
