I’ve got a confession to make to all those who are new to FreedomWire or simply missed it when I copped to this heinous crime before: I, Sean Robertson, used to be a Liberal.
In fact, since I’ve been able to vote (I turned 18 in 1991 and have voted in every election since), I’ve voted Blue ALL but two times.
The first time I voted for a Republican presidential candidate was in 2004 when I placed my vote for George W. Bush for the simple reason that we were still entrenched in the war on terrorism.
It would another 12 years before I would vote Red again. I voted for Obama twice because I was eager for change. But then, after eight years of his administration, I found myself regulated out of a job due to his asphyxiating financial policies.
However, even though I had voted for Obama in 2012, my conversion to conservatism had started long before then.
I had met a man that would change my life in more ways than I can count, and he started me down the path to learning the truth.
He gave me the proverbial red pill…
And while it may have taken a little while to take effect, once my eyes were opened to the truth, I couldn’t go back to sleep again.
For those that don’t know, the “Red Pill/Blue Pill” analogy comes from the movie “The Matrix,” in which the protagonist Neo is offered either a red pill or a blue pill by mentor-like character Morpheus…
The blue pill lets Neo go back to sleep, blissfully unaware of the truth, while the red pill opened his eyes for good, showing him the true horrors of the world around him.
Conservatives have adopted this analogy and it’s come to represent people waking up from the lies of Liberalism to the truths of conservatism.
Taking The Red Pill
I’ve gone through it myself.
While it can be maddening at times to see how Liberals are so detached from reality, the fact is that I’m glad I’m awake and can see the truth.
It sets us free, yet it puts a heavy load on our shoulders at the same time.
Elon Musk, one of the world’s most brilliant men, seems to be a recent convert to the conservative mindset.
Breathing new life into the Matrix metaphor, he recently tweeted a simple message…
“Take the red pill.”
Take the red pill 🌹
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 17, 2020
Well, there could be a plethora of reasons prompting Musk to make this statement, but one of the biggest factors has to be the abject theft of American rights by the state governments under the guise of keeping people safe.
This has been an ongoing battle. Many state governors have said that we could open up after we “flatten the curve”—but after we accomplished that, they change their tune to “we need a cure.”
America won’t survive if we stay closed for much longer…
And Elon Musk knows that.
The Tesla CEO has a manufacturing plant in California, which spent the better part of two months under lockdown orders…
Orders which Musk chose to disobey, and the local court agreed with his decision.
So now he’s trying to wake other sleeping people up…
I did the same thing, except I’m not one of the world’s richest and smartest men. He’s got a platform I could only dream of…
And for as simple as his statement was, he’s created a fair bit of controversy. Since he tweeted, people have been both backing him up AND speaking against him.
Who’s Awake And Who Wants To Stay Asleep?
Ivanka Trump was one of those supporting him. Replying to Musk’s tweet, she simply said, “Taken!”

However, the biggest critic of Musk’s statement was the person who directed the very film they were quoting. Transgender director Lilly Wachowski (formerly Andrew Paul Wachowski) tweeted in response to both Ivanka and Elon: “F**k both of you.”
Fuck both of you

However, Wachowski’s thoughts aside, the fact that Elon is fed up with the way Liberals are handling the lockdown is evident by his words and actions…
And you can bet that other centrists are on the same path. They see Republican-run states starting to reopen without a significant uptick in cases.
America is waking up to the Liberal agenda, and the longer these governors keep their states closed, the worse their party looks.
This will be a HUGE factor in November…
And odds are we’ll see a lot more “red-pilled” people voting this time around.
We’re awake, and we refuse to go back to sleep…
Liberals should be worried.
