I hate talking Politics as it makes me frustrated. Let me just say that I will be more than glad when President Obama is no longer our “lead from behind” leader. I am literally praying that the next Presidential election will bring us a President who can at least make a dent in undoing the tremendous damage Obama has done to our country and not do any additional damage. I love the breadth and diversity of the Republican Party’s candidates. Any one of them would make a good President, while a few of them would make a great President.
On the other side of the table we have the Democratic Party with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or possibly Joe Biden or God help us Al Gore. Three old white males and an old white lady. What happened to the diversity of the Democratic Party? Hillary is a pathological liar who thinks she is above the law and can do anything she wants. Bernie Sanders is an outright Socialist. Joe Biden is a pervert and just plain a creepy person. And as for Al Gore, he belongs in a mental institute.
Do I sound partisan? You bet. I have always been a right leaning conservative. But I have been almost as disappointed in the Republican Party as I am disgusted by the Democratic Party. The voters gave the Republicans decisive victories in two elections, giving them a majority in both the Senate and the House. Have things changed any for the better since then? Nope.
With Republicans like John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner having a stranglehold on Congress, there might as well not be a Republican Party. I almost wish Donald Trump would run as an independent but I am afraid it would punish the country much more than it would teach the Republican party a lesson if a Democrat won the Presidency again.
Am I hopeful for the future of our country? I have to be or I would become permanently despondent. I think Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee would make a good President. But my real hope for the future lies in my faith and the promise from God that evil will be defeated in the end. The Bible promises us that in the end, good will win out over evil, and evil will be defeated — finally and completely. It tells us that “in keeping with (God’s) promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).
So I pray for our country and our leaders every day and I hope you will too.
