Cut the losers and let the winners run

Since taking the 10 Day Social Media Fast I realize I am beyond bored with Facebook and Twitter. I also have a Gab account however find that I do not use it as much as I do Twitter of which my usage is somewhat waning. The other social media accounts I have at Instagram, Periscope, and Snapchat are rarely used anymore either.

As far as news portals go I am still thrilled with The Blaze and I recently went back to checking Drudge Report. Of course there are the smattering of sites I enjoy and a few Tweeple I check out regularly to see what interests them.

After many years of watching politics and working for alleged Conservative causes I have backed out of all but a few sites. Having tuned out the National Republican Senate Committee, the House Republicans, I still follow the Senate Conservatives Fund and Conservative Partnership Institute.

For years David Horowitz has warned and forewarned and discussed how to fight against the socialist movement. And look where the squatters in the GOP have left us: Kevin McCarthy as Minority Leader in the House with Mitch McConnell as the Majority Leader in the Senate. To borrow the phrase from my friend, Jonathan Hoenig (CapitalistPig.com), “Cut the losers and let the winners run”.

McCarthy and McConnell are losers for a true Conservative-Libertarian agenda. Their record proves it.

The winners are The House Freedom Caucus and Senators like Mike Lee, who hold sacred the divinely inspired Constitution, who continuously and tirelessly work to affect change as Statesmen.

To simplify and reduce the time I spend on keeping up with the GOP, my choice is now to focus on The Winners, the men and women who truly walk on the Constitutionally Conservative path. There are simply not enough hours in the day to waste time on the Losers, the Liars, or the Loyally Misguided Progressives in the Republican Party. The focus must remain on those willing to #FrameTheDebate for the Conservative Agenda, for that which takes us away from enslavement ideology to that of being free to govern ourselves.

I really like the Conservative Reform Agenda that Mike Lee laid out on his site:

Freedom doesn’t mean “you’re on your own.” It means “we’re all in this together.”

This conservative vision for society is not anti-government. Civil society depends on a just, transparent, and accountable government to enforce the rule of law.

But a government that tries to do too many things can end up stifling human cooperation instead of enabling it. Big government turns citizens into supplicants, capitalists into cronies, and cooperative communities, into competing special interests.

~ Senator Mike Lee, Utah

Government is doing too much. It ought to be downsized. It ought to be significantly downsized. Government ought to be setting a budget, living on a budget and doing without just like families do.

Good luck with that come January 2019 for apparently the Socialist Democrats, the #NewTotalitarians (same as the #OldTotalitarians), will  continue to run down the failed and abusive path of Marxism, smirking and smiling and making love to us all (Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice).

Unmarred by Earthly Care

I love Sunday evenings “unmarred by earthly care.”

My friend from Church called earlier and we had a lovely chat about Fast Offerings. It was an extension from our Gospel Doctrine class today,  Lesson 17: The Law of Tithing and the Law of the Fast.  (Here is more on Fasting and Fast Offerings.)

Our discussion started with this question asked, and followed up with this quote: 

How generous should we be when we pay fast offerings?

President Spencer W. Kimball said: “Sometimes we have been a bit penurious [unwilling to share] and figured that we had for breakfast one egg and that cost so many cents and then we give that to the Lord. I think that when we are affluent, as many of us are, that we ought to be very, very generous … and give, instead of the amount we saved by our two meals of fasting, perhaps much, much more—ten times more where we are in a position to do it” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1974, 184).

As I ruminate over our discussion, I am sorry that I did not share with her this question, scripture reference and quote:

What are some of the consequences when we pay generous fast offerings? (See Isaiah 58:6–7 and the following quotation.)

President Gordon B. Hinckley said: “Think … of what would happen if the principles of fast day and the fast offering were observed throughout the world. The hungry would be fed, the naked clothed, the homeless sheltered. Our burden of taxes would be lightened. The giver would not suffer but would be blessed by his small abstinence. A new measure of concern and unselfishness would grow in the hearts of people everywhere” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1991, 73; or Ensign, May 1991, 52–53).
