About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

Hiatus For The Oklahoma Patriot

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.

I'll be straight forward. I didn't know about this blog until you joined (temporarily) another site that I like to read. I find your posts to be very informative and I can dig what you're saying here. I also have responsibilities of raising a family and going to college so I know how hard it can be to keep up with everything that is going on in our lives. I'll miss your rants, but I understand why you're cutting back. Take care.

GW thanks for the mention. I've been thinking of you lately, so know I've got to pray for you and your family. BEST WISHES with your business!!!!! You have no idea how much your kind and HONEST words helped me through the rough patch we emailed about. I too have enjoyed our engagements even when we disagree and have always appreciated your sensitivity even when I was ranting!!! Must be that Keiths and Mahndisas get along!

Take Care and let us know when you update your blog. Don't get sucked into the pessimism though, because I have a strong feeling that grass roots movers and shakers WILL make a difference in this country and by you being an entreprenur you're giving life blood to the economy!

Grey, you know I will miss you greatly. Do not be gone to long.
Thank you for all of the support you have given me. I don't think I ever told you how much you lifted my spirit when I was struggling with my mother when she was so ill. We are still caring for her on a daily basis, and sometimes it is still a chore, but people like you certainly helped me put it into the correct perspective.
I cry for my country. I do not know what is going to happen to it, but I do see a very steady decline into an abyss we may never be able to climb out of. Sometimes I feel like we are banging our heads against a solid concrete wall. However, I will not go down without a fight.
Good luck on your entrepreneurial enterprises.
If I never meet you on this earth, I know I will see you in Heaven and for that I am thankful.
Hurry back,

Grey, don't be gone to long! I truly understand where you are coming from. It seem like we are banging our heads against a solid concrete wall.
I cry daily for our country. It seem we are falling into a deep abyss we will never be able to climb up out of. The enemy is constantly seeking whom he may devour and those who do not have their guards up will suffer.
I do not think I ever told you how much you encouraged me when I was being so discouraged during my mother's illness. Thank you for that. She still requires daily care by my sister and I but we can do it. Without the care and prayers from you and so many others, I would have had a very difficult time continuing.
Good luck with whatever your entrepreneurial endeavor is.
We may never meet in this life, but I know we will see one another in Heaven. I am so looking forward to the great reunion:)
Take care and hurry back!

Chuck, however you came here, I enjoyed your input. Thanks. I'm sure I'll be back, but as I said, it is time I put some effort into regaining my piece of America and preparing my family for what I still believe is coming.

Disa and Gramma, if you ladies ever just want to talk, I'm always available. I may not be blogging for now, but I'm there for my friends. And I am your friend. So, email me if you like. Same for you, chuck. May not be at pd.com any more but i'm glad to have you around.

Man, do I ever understand, Sir... My similar post of frustration was about a month ahead of yours.

You are one of the strongest pillars that sustains my roof. God bless you, Sir.

Greywolfe said...

I don't know how to thank each of you for the support you've given me during this time. I'm glad that all of you have been my friends here.

With all luck, I should be back to writing the evening of the election.

God bless and keep each of you and your families.

Be vigilant. Now comes the real danger.

Chuck O said...

I look forward to your return to writing and the election is not that far out.
