Hillbilly Politics

I have to blame myself, too. The world turned upside down and I didn’t say enough. I’m part of the silent majority. As others are now talking when they never did before, so have I began.

The Gathering of Eagles is a symbol of the silent majority. Yes, I watch Fox News. The most heartening thing watching the coverage was when one person said he was of the silent majority and figured it was time to speak out (paraphrased). 

The weirdest thing I saw in the coverage was that none of the antiwar protesters had an American flag (if there was one, no one got a shot of it). Oh there were a few red white and blue flags. I saw one sporting a peace symbol and several others with a single star in a triangle of blue, but not one American Flag, even on the stations that are biased in their favor. This is a group that capitalizes on their freedom of speech who can’t seem to find it in their hearts to carry a single American Flag but can build grotesque effigies depicting the evil American “empire”.

As far as Cindy Sheehan is concerned, I often wonder, usually while listening to her screaming tirades, what she said to her boy, who died so bravely, that she is now insane with the guilt.

One of the things about being a hillbilly is we look at the simple answers. Most problems do have simple answers. Hillbillies are masters of Ockham’s Razor, yet we are the most ridiculed ethnic group there is on earth. I often thought that, as a group, we were behind the times, but lately I’ve wondered if perhaps, we simply refuse to partake of these times recognizing the simple stupidity of turning our backs on the basic simple truths of life.

It is we humans who try to complicate things by trying to find sideways solutions that are easier than the using the simple truths of life as a guide. The sideways solutions never seem to work for long, so more sideways solutions are found to get around the other sideway solutions.

What are the simple truths of life? The Ten Commandments are. They tell you everything about living a good life. Even the staunchest atheist cannot argue againt the simple truths of the last 6 of those commandments.

If you need to be reminded what they are, then here you go.

The Commandment

The Call



I am the LORD your God, you shall have no other gods before me.

Faith (Trust in God)

All faith in God, freedom from lesser gods: wealth, sex, power, popularity.


You shall not take the Name of the LORD your God in vain.



Respect for God and the things of God: prayer, worship, religion.


Keep holy the Sabbath day.


Not just the Sabbath rest, but setting aside time for prayer, good recreation, quiet reflection.


Honor your father and your mother.


Loving care and respect for all family members, elders and younger siblings, too. Respect for elders in general.


You shall not kill.

Respect For Life

Courtesy to all, speaking respectfully to all, seeking the best for all. Respecting others’ freedom while still defending all human life.


You shall not commit adultery.


Faithfulness (Fidelity)

Faithful actions beyond just abstaining from sexual contact outside of marriage. Respect for sex and marriage.


You shall not steal.

Justice (Honesty)

 Concern for the rights of others, especially when they get in the way of what we desire. A commitment to fairness and a willingness to suffer loss rather than depriving another.


You shall not bear false witness.


 A dedication to what is real and true, even if that reality is against our interests.


You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.


 A desire to want only what God wills. A single-hearted devotion to God’s way.


You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.


 A cooperation in God’s own generosity that sees all goods as belonging to God and freely given for the good of all.


Given the prevailing attitudes of the politicians in Europe and the countless examples of anti-Americanism, we sometimes forget that, yes, there are people in Europe who do love liberty and will fight for her.

 “Gates of Vienna: Stop the Islamification of Europe

I gotta add a link to their site on the blog.

I particularly appreciated this small passage although the whole is extremely good reading:

A Nazi will punch you for the good of the state. A Communist will kick you for the good of the state. A liberal will do both while shaking your hand and telling you it’s for your own good.

Rational people recognize that the only liberality self-styled “liberals” indulge in, is liberally banning everything they disagree with.
