Why We Are Cynical

 

 

By Don Jans

The definition of cynical is believing that people are motivated by self-interest, distrustful of human sincerity or integrity. In this ranting I am speaking of the part of cynical per the human sincerity or integrity aspect.

I am a Freedom Loving American. I would place my priorities as Faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God who was crucified and raised from the dead, my family, a Freedom Loving American, and a Republican per the new party definition established by President Trump. I would like to believe that people are honest, play by the established rules, will do what they say they will do, live by a consistent standard, and are truly outraged when they claim to be outraged. You now see why in this rant my cynicism is targeted at the human sincerity and integrity aspect.

I have studied history. I have read countless biographies, autobiographies, historical accounts of specific events, books based on the history of different regions and nations, and have traveled to many of the locations which were central to the events. I have studied collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats, – all virtually the same), by reading accounts of its evils, but mostly I have read books that proclaim its glories. I have done this so I can better understand what and why they do what they do. I have learned that when they proclaim, “the ends always justify the means”, they absolutely believe it and believe it literally. This why Harry Reid would state, “well he lost didn’t he”, when he was directly confronted with lying about having confirmed information that Mitt Romney had not filed income taxes for ten years.

Nothing those on the left do, surprises me. That they would not even try to conceal cheating to attempt to remove President Trump was to be expected. That the evidence they cheated is so overwhelming, even having votes counted with 138,000 for Biden and 0 for Trump, or tabulating more votes in countless precincts that exceeded the actual number of votes counted, or refusing to have even a resemblance of transparency, is not surprising. The left has openly cheated in the past and was never punished, why would they expect to have any consequences now?

My cynicism is because of members of the established GOP. We are constantly being told how upset and outraged they are and that this time there will be consequences. After the headlines have gone to another story, all the outrage subsides, and these people go back to their old ways of going along to get along. Thus, I question their human sincerity and their integrity. Many of these people are upset with President Trump simply because he says what he means and does what he says. This is unique to many of our GOP politicians today.

Case in point is from a story in Breitbart. “In a Sunday interview on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Sen. Todd Young (R-IN), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, previewed the upcoming January 5 Georgia Senate runoff election.

After many allegations across the country of voter fraud in the November election, Young emphasized the importance of having a “free and fair election.” To ensure that, Young said there will be more attorneys and election observers “than we’ve ever had in a U.S. Senate election.

We want to make sure this is a free and fair election,” Young told host John Catsimatidis. “Of course, we want to make sure that everyone who wants to cast a vote and is legally eligible to do so does so, that we don’t have dead people voting, that there are election observers allowed into, you know, the various polling places, that there’s integrity to the mail-in ballots that are sent out for absentee purposes and so forth.

He added, “We have more attorneys. We have more election observers and on-the-ground election experts than we’ve ever had in a U.S. Senate election involved in this effort. So, the assets of the Republican National Committee, the Republican Senatorial Committee, which I am leading, and various other legal groups, from not-for-profit groups to individual volunteer attorneys, are down there. And we’re prepared to contest any irregularities that might happen.”

WOW!! That is great. Sorry Todd Young, but based on past actions, I would say so what. The Democrats will cheat and manipulate in front of you and your attorneys and poll watchers will capitulate the minute a little pressure is placed on them. You will then declare that the will of the people has spoken. I know this because this is what you have done in the past, in the very recent past. Never in my lifetime is voter fraud, voter manipulation, and outright cheating been so obvious as it was in this presidential election. Even you cannot rationalize all of the discrepancies. The Republicans picked up 12 or so house seats, not one incumbent lost, and yet President Trump lost. The irregularities in the voter count, the countless affidavits, and filmed accounts to block any and all transparency, to name a few of the outrageous acts, and yet many of the Republican are saying that President Trump should not challenge this obviously corrupt election raised my cynicism beyond any point in the past, even beyond when the Republican party believed McCain and Romney that they represented the values of conservatives and Freedom Loving Americans.

So long as the Republican party retains the practices of their past, voicing outrage and putting on shows with no consequences for the wrongdoing of the Democrats, people like me will continue to be cynical. At least the Democrats tell us they are going to steal an election and then they do it.   

Yes, we who have taken the time to learn who the Democrats really are, and have become cynical of the old GOP, have longed for the day when a person will tell us what they will do and then they do it. We also understand why that person will be and is so hated by Washington DC, which is the swamp.

Democrats, GOP, and Washington DC understand President Trump set a brushfire of freedom in the heart and soul of us who are Freedom Loving Americans. He set a standard for us of how to be strong and fight for that freedom in the same way Samuel Adams did leading up to the American Revolution. We Freedom Loving Americans will not capitulate, we will not conform, and we will prevail because we now refuse to surrender.

Don Jans is a national acclaimed author and speaker.  He is also a lifelong student of history, with a special emphasis on Russian history.  His study of Russian history led to 1917 which led to the study of the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.  Don has written five books on the topic of Collectivism (Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Progressivism). 

Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs.  He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda.

Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.  

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom. Visit his website: http://www.mygrandchildrensamerica.com/

Cynicism is a very healthy thing. It requires genuine open mindedness. But this article is rampant dogma without a trace of actual cynicism to be found – it’s just pretending.
