Patriots and Loyalists

I am continuing on with the theme from my last post. The idea being that there is a stark difference between those who believe in the ideas of the founding of our republic and those who want a more authoritarian form of government. We did not get here overnight, though it may seem to some that things eroded quickly, to where we are now.

The main point that I ascribe to, is in the differences of opinion about, where do our rights come, and why were some (loyalists) against parting ways from England. I think the biggest reason for the loyalist’s aversion to separation was due to the fact that, most of them were involved in trade with England and feared losing that. The patriots were against taxation without representation in parliament, among a great many other things but these two make sense to me with what is happening in our supposed representative government.

Three to four trillion USD are collected into the Federal government coffers.

For a quick reference 1 million seconds is about 12 days. 1 billion seconds is 34 years, give or take. and 1 trillion seconds is 34,000 years. Let that sink in. It looks to me like the loyalists of the day are most interested in staying cozy with the insiders that can dole out a portion of that incomprehensible amount of money to them for their endeavors. I count these entities among them. Big Tech, Main Stream Media, Corporate conglomerates, Educational institutions, and all or nearly all the people employed by or are vendors to these. In addition there is the circulation of campaign contributions that end up back into the pockets of the donors and influence peddlers.

The patriots are, in my opinion the ordinary people that wish to just be able to go to work and prosper in a thriving economy, which happens when the government is least intrusive and lets the people keep more of what they earn. They just want accurate information and equal opportunity to succeed or fail without interference or having to comply with ideas antithetical to their beliefs. They resist being categorized in any way and for the most part love what they do and want to let everyone live and be who they are, unless it’s being forced on them.


This is where, in my opinion, the need for division amongst the masses becomes the paramount objective of the power junkies. The difference between leading and ruling is revealed. If the ruler types can keep us at odds with the portrayed enemy, we’re more easily influenced. The only thing that allows this to occur is if we’re not allowed open exchange of ideas. That is sadly where we are. Opposing ideas and truthful information are being censored and expunged from our means of receiving and disseminating information. The loyalists have relegated the patriots to a “digital ghetto”, where we’re cast out and ridiculed and sometimes physically threatened or worse.


There is also the issue of a seeming insulation from law and justice being perpetrated by the elite, ruling class which is appalling and is allowed by their tone deaf narcissistic minions in the media. Gaslighting and accusing freedom loving people as being exactly as they, in fact, are.

The only way out of the woods is to rediscover Love, Truth and Justice for all.

I am not capable of arriving there naturally without God in my life. It is His strength, courage, and unfathomable Love that has taken up residence, at my invitation, into my heart.

  1. Flesh and blood did not reveal this to you…

    This discerning insight has been given exclusively by the Spirit to those who are destined to reign with Him throughout eternity. Unlike the world’s standard of achievement, to lose is to gain, humility is exalted, to die is to live. To confound the worldly wise, the first shall be last/ the last elevated to the head of the line.

    A diligent examination of American history reveals a sad truth. Those who never learn from history are doomed to repeat its failures. 1776 patriots fought England for the same reasons 2021 pats expose China. But those who trust in the Lord can rest assured – the battle is the Lord’s. The true liberation intended by Him is finding such ‘rest’ in the Lord.

    “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Jn. 16:33

  2. Thank you MJT I hadn’t thought of it quite that way but then was reminded of a Thomas Merton quote as I was reading your compliment. “What ever good in us arises from His Love” I do cherish the gift of investing time to read/study, pray and contemplate what I see and I turn that over as well to Him that I might see clearly

  3. Awesome post, Jeff! And you’re so right! I’m a patriot and all we want is to work, go home to our families, take care of our families, determine our own destiny, and be left alone to live in peace. I believe that if we turn back to God, we just might have a chance.
