Another season is coming upon us for the mid-season elections. It is that time of year when the television, radio, and newspapers are loaded with partyline talk. It is actually double-speak, for many times the promises seem far off from the actual accomplishments of those who promised the stuff.
I can still remember Nixon saying "I'm not a crook" and Clinton saying "I did not have sex with that woman". Of course, this is mere political speak. That means they can say anything and then months or years from the actual event they become top speakers on the network. You know that one don't you? This is that network of used to be somethings that go around to all the colleges and other places speaking on things they know or think they do.
I for one tremble at the thought of another season of this. When the season comes, I feel like the deer when its hunting season approaches. I want to head for the high hills for cover. In a short time them "political assassins" who find voters might get me. If I don't hide, there they go blasting on every commercial and them some. I can't stand commercials either, too many of them. The rhetoric begins flowing like Niagara Falls. It is swift, deep, and drops along way. By the time it hits the bottom, the spray flies all over. This spray is the political mysticism that happens every political year. It covers the whole land. In the end, though, someone gets elected and the country tries to resume its course.
Lately though I have found alot of folks who have no one to vote for. They keep saying, many times I agree, who will I vote for? There is no one who seems qualified or knows what they are doing! Some time ago a number of us were trying to figure out who is going to win the White House when Bush leaves. The answer escaped us. Will it be Hillery or Rice? Maybe some independent will make it? Well, it's hard for a third party candidate to take the White House.
Do you remember one of the most famous people to run as a third party candidate and win? It was Abraham Lincoln. Maybe we will get lucky this time with someone who will really do us some good. Nah, too much to hope for.
As the season comes around to voting and finding a likely candidate I hope to survive the nausa it causes. If only they would just shut up for awhile. Maybe they could just stick to issues and quit the garbage talk. Well no matter what they do, I think I will look for a good hiding place far from the chao's of the time of year that is coming. The political elections will be upon us. May the Good Lord help us to survive. The Lord knows we need someone who can help this country.
Oh, by the way these are just all opinions....Just like a Politician, I have one too...
Further, my opinion is that in this nation, to know a real experience in Christ is the reality of life. Whether in season of politics or not, Christ is our answer. When a society and its leaders drift away from the God of Glory, problems occur. Israel is a prime example of what happens. Even though, they were a theocracy, and we are not, God still governs the nations. He overthrew Babylon, Tyre, Sodom, Gommorah, Babel and others for their wickedness. None of these were theocracies. God governs the nations. No matter what opinions I have or the politicians have. God Governs the Nations.
