“I Took The Red Pill” is a reference to the movie The Matrix as well as both a blue-state/red-state analogy and, most importantly, a reference to seeking and finding the truth.
I was born and raised in a very liberal blue-state Democrat family.
At 18 I left home and went to a well-known (and fairly liberal) university in a red state. My alma mater, like many of America’s great universities, was founded by Christians to raise up Christian leaders and glorify Jesus Christ, but the university was later taken over by Secular Progressives who subverted the founder’s original intent and made “liberal education” the primary goal. It’s no surprise that coming from a liberal upbringing, and attending a (now) liberal college, I was very liberal throughout college.
It was not until I began to associate with successful Christian businessmen that my eyes were truly opened. I took the red pill, accepted Jesus Christ’s sacrifice of his blood for me, understood the truth, and understood the Matrix called the world we live in.
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.
Morpheus: I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.
My eyes, like Neo’s were opened, and I saw things I had never seen before.
Neo: Why do my eyes hurt?
Morpheus: You’ve never used them before.
Now I know the truth, and knowing the truth has set me free.
I asked God to fill me with His Holy Spirit and as I started praying and reading the Bible, more and more truth has been revealed to me.
My political conversion was a direct result of my spiritual conversion (taking the Red Pill and learning the truth), so since both Neo and I took the Red Pill, I guess you could call me a “Neo” Conservative. :-)
Learning God’s truth took me from liberal Democrat to conservative Republican. That is why many Democrats (those that aren’t really Democrats but rather DemoNratic Socialist Communists) can’t stand born-again Christians. In fact, the DemoNrats have a clearly stated goal of “Defeating the Ultra-Right“). They are the “Agents” that seek to destroy us and our “Zionist” nation:
Agent Smith: Find them and destroy them.
Our evangelism threatens them. (A noteworthy example: they can’t stand that “Jane Roe” of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case has been born-again and is now speaking out publicly against abortion from a Christian/Pro-Life perspective. She is exposing the truth now about the lies and deception that were used in 1973 to influence that Supreme Court decision.)
Many people aren’t ready to know the truth:
Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Hillary Clinton once mentioned a “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy”. Many people laughed. Unfortunately, there really is a “Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy”, and they want to replace the Constitution of the United States with this Communist constitution.
I guess the successful Christian businessmen who introduced me to Jesus Christ are what Hillary was referring to as the “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy”…
If so, count me in.
Proud, card-carrying member of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy!
