Folks, it's no secret that I haven't been posting on here as regularly as I once did. Nor do I do so with the passion and attention to details that I did a year ago. Some of this is due to my position. As an OTR driver and now a struggling entrepreneur, I simply don't have the time to devote to the site, as it deserves.
Also, I must admit that the cathartic release I got from posting my rants and rages on here, has been steadily decreasing. The frustration with the way the country has gone and the inability of true patriots to slow our country's degradation, let alone stop it, has reached a murderous pitch. I simply can't continue to put so much time and effort into watching the minutia of our decline. It is too painful. For a time, I am going to have to step back. Put more energy into my family and my business. I truly believe that the American dream is not dead. That it can be given CPR and brought back from the brink. I now have to focus on that and preparing my family in case the worst case scenarios do happen.
Understand, I love each and every one of you people that come to The Oklahoma Patriot. We may not always agree on everything, but then that's not required. I've made some great friends here and from other sites. Thank you all, and understand that I'm just taking a break, not going away permanently. In fact, if you care to, I would appreciate any emails you might like to send. I'll place my email at the bottom of this post for those that don't know it already.
Before I go, there are a couple of things I'd like to say. First, for those that came here and read my rants on a regular basis, thank you. Even more so to those that cared to either give me their kudos, or engage me in debate. Mahndisa, you've kept me honest and focused, thanks. You've seen hard times, and there are more ahead, but keep God and Family first, and He'll take care of the rest. Gramma you are a kindred heart and I have enjoyed our talks immensely. God bless you and yours. Womanhonorthyself you have the passion I started with, I hope you are more successful than I at keeping it both tempered and focused.
Hell, if I tried to list all of the people that I gathered my inspiration from, I'd be listing every blog on my blog roll for one thing or another. So, I'll just say thank you and God bless you all in the coming months.
To close, I want to present you with one message. It has become clear to me that this nation, as it has been known, cannot stand. The divisions are too deep and the hurdles too high. The animosity that the left has for the right, and vice versa, has escalated to the point of bloodshed. That can't be stopped by anything short of the second coming, so I'll just say this... Prepare.
Do what you need to to get your family protected to the best of your ability. Teach your children to be self-reliant in what they can be, and to rely on God rather than other men for everything else. In that way, you prepare them to pick up after we've trashed everything in our arrogance and stupidity. Find those states that have a majority that believe as you do and move there. Vote with your feet and let those that would continue to support failure stand on their own. Understand that EVERY form of socialism/Marxism has failed and that we cannot continue to support those policies any longer, no matter how painful the weaning will be (and it will be that. Painful.)
And last but not least... Go to your knees daily. Remember that we are not truly in control of anything. God in heaven is. All we can do is our best and trust him. We've been lousy stewards over a divine gift, in this republic. Perhaps we can bring some form of it back with his help. Until then, God grant you his Peace, and Strength. May he look down on you and shine his grace on all you do.
And as always, keep your powder dry.
