I am Thinking Sheepdog…

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Personal Philosophy, from a friend in the UK who has significant interest in American politics:

“Show me a selfless politician, working strictly for the common good and defending our individual rights and liberties as citizens, and I will show you a saint!

There are precious few!

The vast majority unfailingly succumb to their own petty lust for power, and the ecumenical dogma among politicians that we ‘ordinary’ citizens cannot think for ourselves. . The ‘representation’ aspect is instantly forgotten, and the people’s voice and interests soon fade into the background, while political infighting and jockeying for position take precedence.

Most don’t look upon themselves as ‘public servants,’ but rather as ‘ public parents’ They are truly paranoid, afraid of everything!

Meanwhile, down here on the “peon level:

We ‘sheepdogs’ go armed, because we have consciously decided to, for true and honest reasons of personal protection, and protection of the innocent and weak.

Sheep are unfailingly attacked and eaten, because they are naive and self-delusional. They are weak and helpless, by choice

Wolves attack and eat hapless sheep, because sheep, as noted, are invariably unprepared (by choice), and therefore represent an easy score. A successful attack is usually carried out with minimal effort and risk.

For one, I am a ‘thinking sheepdog.’ I don’t like the other options!”


Me neither!

“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But, when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, hugging the delusive phantom of hope until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

Sir, we are not weak when we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.” ~ Patrick Henry

Technically, sheep are not vulnerable by their own choice, but rather as they have been designed by their creator as such. People on the other hand, have their own will and can muster themselves to change themselves and their environment. I submit that over time evolution plays into the situation also. In our man-made unnatural surroundings, it is probable that many humans (sheeple) are losing that critical element which keeps them vigilant and allows their senses to be sharp, draining their will to be pro-active, let alone stand up fir themselves! After all, Big Brother takes care of their entitlements,… Read more »
