Why do people refer to the American Public as “Sheeple”? As a sheep farmer I can tell you this, it just is not right!
First of all, sheep are not dumb. As a sheep farmer those 4 legged, wooly creatures outsmart me almost every day. Just try grabbing a sheep and bringing it to slaughter…they will run, flee and scramble anyway they can to get away from the perceived threat. When you compare this to the past election, it is pretty darn clear that the American People ran headlong for the rhetoric that Obama spilled from his mouth and straight to slaughter. A sheep would NEVER do this. They do not trust ANYONE!
While sheep are not dumb, they are defenseless, which is another reason we cannot call the American People “Sheeple”. Again this is not the case with American people; we still have guns, though Obama would like to make us more like sheep in that regard and pull our second amendment away from us so that we are more like sheep…defenseless.
And sheep do not aimlessly follow their leader. They travel in flocks because they have scent glands in the front hooves that excrete a smell that allows subordinate sheep to follow their leader; a leader chosen by a pecking order that shows clearly the lead sheep is dominant, strong, takes on others without fear...something the Benghazi clearly shows us Obama has not done. With so much infighting, and many states lobbying for defecting, the last thing we have is a strong leader which the whole flock aimlessly follows.
Sheep are very heartily and rely on themselves. This is not the case with the American People, the majority of which are on some sort of public assistance or aid. Not so with sheep; they have wool on their backs that not only provides warmth, it has lanolin on it which makes it water proof, and as long as sheep have food, they can survive down to temperatures as low as -40 degrees before frostbite nips at the tips of their ears. Even in -15 degrees below zero weather, my sheep are outside rather then protected by the barn I have built for them. Also notice I did not mention water, they get enough water from snow and vegetation to get by without fresh water, which is the reason sheep can thrive on the islands off Maine, any other animal would require fresh drinking water. Sheep on Criehaven, 28 miles off the coast of Maine have been surviving there without human intervention for 20 years. American’s today…50% of them at least…need Governmental help which is sad.
Sheep are not into free health care. In fact sheep go to great pains (literally) to hide their infirmities. That is because if they show they are the weakest sheep, they could be picked off by predators. Considering how people are flocking (pun intended) to Obama Care and other free health care provisions, the American People do not resemble sheep at all, but rather like to highlight injury and disability in order to qualify for more financial help.
Sheep also have very clear memories. Did you know because they are so defenseless and that their only retaliation is to run, that they can recognize faces for up to two years! They do this because they need to quickly identify friend or foe, and why Jesus said in the bible, “The sheep hear my voice and follow me.” Even though I give my sheep, food, water and grain on a daily basis, they are still afraid of me. They are wary, and while they will follow me knowing that I have always helped them be independent, and move to better pastures where they can forage for themselves; the American People do not do this at all. They either have been fooled enough by politicians that they trust no one (libertarians), or they follow anyone without worry (liberals).
Those are just a few of the highlights of why referring to the American People as “sheeple” is just plain wrong. The irony is, we should really be more like sheep; be hearty, run from danger, forage for ourselves, take care of our own infirmities, and most importantly; follow a leader who has proven himself by being courageous and strong, defended himself and the flock and is worthy of following.
