Breaking free of the Washington ‘Matrix’: A choice we all must make

Breaking free of the Washington Matrix

Breaking free of the Washington ‘Matrix’ is a choice we all must make

When it comes to breaking free of the Washington “Matrix,” each of us must choose to do so if we are to have any chance of beating the Republican/Democrat machine.

I’ve pretty much made it my life’s work to expose the many ways liberty is being destroyed by the “agents” represented by the Republican and Democrat parties. I’ve also exposed the faux conservatives who have replaced conviction with capitulation, and how today’s religious leaders in America are no different than the religious leaders of Nazi Germany who gave rise to Adolf Hitler.

This has led to a lot of feedback from people who don’t exactly agree with my conclusions.

Some of the most common criticisms I hear, besides being accused of working for CNN or being privately funded by George Soros, is how I’m being negative and un-Christian, and how I should focus more on the “good things” done by so-called conservative. Of course, I’d be happy to do as they suggest, if only they actually did anything good. Unfortunately, Trumpism and Nationalism have blurred the lines of conservatism, making it nearly impossible to find anything “good” to praise.

The Washington Matrix is an evil and oppressive system with only one purpose: the creation of a dystopian society to keep us trapped inside a simulated world where the machine is in control, and where we are relegated to being little more than a financial “energy source” used to sustain it.

I’ve been fighting the Washington Matrix ever since Agents John Boehner and Mitch McConnell teamed up to “crush” the freed minds of the conservative movement, and I continue to fight the wave of Republican fascism and nationalism being embraced by the likes of presidential hopefuls Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Josh Hawley.

So-called conservative groups like the House Freedom Caucus, who at one time had freed themselves of the Washington Matrix, have elected to negotiate a way back into the system. Now, instead of fighting the Washington Matrix, the HFC and others are content to work with the agents to help them advance Trumpism and Nationalism.

And let’s not forget that Trump has become the “Mr. Smith” of agents, targeting freed conservative minds and forcing them to either allow themselves to be assimilated into the Washington Matrix or be destroyed.

To put it bluntly, I’m now a part of the resistance. My mind has been freed from the programming of the Washington Matrix and I’m committed to doing all I can to free as many other minds as possible.

I’m a critic of the system, not a cheerleader, because truth is more important than going along to get along within a system designed to control my life. This means I often find myself alone, but as I once wrote, “I’d rather walk the right road alone than walk the wrong road with a crowd.”

When faced with the overwhelming forces of the Washington Matrix and their war against the conservative values of freed minds, I’m often reminded of a scene near the end of the movie, The Matrix Revolutions, the third installment of The Matrix trilogy, where Agent Smith appears to have defeated Neo.

Agent Smith: Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you’re fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can’t win. It’s pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?

Neo: Because I choose to.

“Because I choose to.” That’s it right there.

Liberty or tyranny. Freedom or slavery. Surrender or revolution. To break free of the Washington Matrix, we need to choose to fight for what we believe in.

I choose to be a member of the resistance who speaks truth because, as George Orwell once stated, “speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.”

And regardless of the outcome, I will continue doing all I can to be “The One” who helps break the grip the Washington Matrix has over us, and I will continue fighting the agents — including the faux conservative media — whenever freed conservative minds are under assault.

I will also continue to call out the “Oracles” I refer to as the Fellowship of the Pharisees for their spiritual capitulation, sacrificing the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the altar of cheap grace for a seat at Trump’s table.

Does this mean I will lose the support of some of you? Possibly, but just like Morpheus explained to Neo in the first Matrix movie, all I’m offering you is the truth.

[Morpheus takes out two pills: One read, one blue]

MORPHEUS: This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends; you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill; you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Remember, all I’m offering is the truth, nothing more.

[Neo hesitates, then takes the red pill]

MORPHEUS: Follow me.

How about you? Will you choose the blue pill and remain in the bondage of the Washington Matrix? Or will you choose the red pill and break free of it, accepting the life of liberty we were meant live?

Like Neo, I chose the red pill. I hope you will too!
