Two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT views of "reality"

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Fri Dec 20, 2019 10:26 pm

The Republicans and the Democrats seem to view the same transcripts, hear the same testimony, and somehow authoritatively state TOTALLY DIFFERENT conclusions, as if they are completely obvious and clear-cut. How can this be...???

Well it can't be mere nuance, and that "two honest observers can have different opinions" - because this is across-the-board, consistent, pervasive difference, without any disclaimers or softening around the edges.

So the ONLY way to figure out the REAL truth is to actually go to the raw material, transcript, article, testimony, or whatever, and see for yourself.

EVERY time I do that, the 'Democrat' spin turns out to be completely farcical, and the distortions are not subtle. Nonetheless, the 'mainstream news' media parrots it as if Gospel....

Here is a classic example - https://youtu.be/eBLaahYJGt0?t=2812

This pretty much shows the sad reality that if a person believes and parrots the Democrat spin, they are simply someone who does NOT care enough to go to the original material, someone who does NOT care enough to risk exposure to contrary ideas or opinion they might have to deal with, and someone who is more interested in virtue-signaling and self-validating within their political bubble.

Maybe the 'conservative' or 'Republican' side of things is too politically-incorrect to admit believing in public, but when the REALITY is that it is far more accurate and truthful, at some point anyone who values truth and integrity simply has to admit that regardless of the 'virtue points', going along with the 'liberal' or 'progressive' or 'Democrat' spin is not only illogical, but dishonest, and basically immoral in that that agenda results in harming people and reducing freedom, to support an entrenched political-class of ultra-wealthy power-grabbers and corporate elite. Of course that is what the preening Democrats pretend to oppose, but the sham is being exposed now.

Sadly, 50 years ago, the 'progressives' and 'liberals' stood for an entirely different set of values than today's Democrats, and the honest hard-working citizens, minorities, and even the outright poor people with those values are now far better served by the Republican Party, even though it was once labeled the 'party of the wealthy'. There certainly are 'wealthy' Republicans, but when it comes to Republican versus Democrat, today's Democrats are using and abusing minorities and poor people as stepping stones to maintain power for their 'limousine liberal' politicians, corporate powerbroker, trial lawyers, and so on.

Doc, that is exactly the way I have seen it for many long years in the UK, and look where it's got us. :(

What is interesting is that those Democrats who are in the working-class, poor, minorities, and so on are figuring this out, and so I wasn't surprised when a black patient of mine who is a custodian, said he voted for Obama but now is an enthusiastic trump supporter.

But those Democrats who are in the 'intellectual' class, upper-middle-class just don't get it; they still think in the most basic and almost childish terms - "Orange Man Bad" - and are stuck in the same rut politically.

I think the difference is that the working-class types are LIVING reality of the economic difference between socialism and capitalism, and clearly see the latter benefits them, whereas the intellectuals are relatively well-off regardless (many actually have professions benefitting from big-government subsidies). I also think the upper-middle-class Democrats tend to be more obsessed with the material success that the 'top 1%' crowd has, and envy drives them to want to tear those wealthy people down so they can catch up with them and enjoy the same material luxuries. The working-class isn't driven in the same way - they are merely wanting to be able to repair their car, pay their rent, and afford a doctor visit, whereas the upper-middle-class Democrats are obsessing over why they can't have a sailboat or Mercedes or indoor swimming pool like the wealthy people have.

Anyhow, the impression one gets is that the 'poorly educated' working-class people have FAR MORE political insight than the self-anointed intellectual-class.

the dichotomy we see is spiritual. satan is called the god of this world in scripture. satan is a liar and the father of it -- Jesus' words. Those who lie to impose their will are serving satan, they are his tools. There are legions of fallen angels, demons, loose in the world using fake spirituality and weaponized propaganda to attempt to subvert Christ's Kingdom... according to Christ's words in scripture they are going to get really close to succeeding.

All of this is in the Bible. God is in control of the endgame and the outcome. It is all spelled out in widescreen 3D panavision technicolor in the scriptures.

That eventuality is not in doubt, it is not possible to subvert it or side track it or alter it, it is coming.

There is an escape. Christ is coming back for his "sheep", those whom He has saved, whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life. If your name is in that ledger, you will not experience the "time of Jacob's trouble".

Me and my family, we trust Christ only as the as the hope of eternal life, based on His death, burial, and resurrection. Which facts were prophesied from ancient times and fulfilled by Christ such that there is no possible alternative fake gospel. Read the Bible for yourselves, Please! There are many smugly deceived humans. I pray none of us are among them.

This is true truth. Christ is the One prophesied in scripture. He is the Son of God. He is God with us. He is the Son of man. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the Creator. He is the author of life. He is the Judge. He is Holy. He cannot lie. He is the eternal Holy Spirit. Christ is our Advocate in heaven right now. He is "preparing a place for us", where we can live with Him eternally.

But, in the mean time, "men shall wax worse and worse"... and until Christ catches believers up off the earth, we have to deal with the reality we see.

The liar class propagandists will get more and more hysterically insane right up until that last Great Day.

Voting cannot alter that.

Prayer will bind the strongholds of wicked unrighteousness, and loose our loved ones from strongholds.

THIS IS WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS
THIS IS WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT
THIS IS WHY CHRISTMAS EXISTS

CHRIST DIED TO KEEP A REMNANT OF HUMANITY OUT OF THE LAKE OF FIRE, THIS IS WHY HE CAME TO US.


My hope and prayer is that EVERYONE who visits these pages has their name written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and that we will all meet together in Christ's presence, on that Day.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Grizz family
