I believe this presidential election is the most important election in the history of the United States. We have a choice between a candidate that is literally serving Satan, and one that is talented, patriotic, and savvy, but who sometimes has all the charm of a bull moose. And then there are the “also rans”—the third party candidates; even their names don’t matter.
The intelligent folks long ago realized that there really WAS no choice if they valued the future of their nation. The haters, of course, are continuing to serve Satan, like their leader in the White House, and the one who is running to replace him. The third parties, for better or worse, are so minuscule in numbers that they serve no purpose, except to pull votes away from the patriotic candidate.
Amazingly, there are a huge number of folks out there who just can’t make up their mind about who they’re going to vote for; I call them “the mindless middle,” and I think that’s being overly kind. Now I’ve been reposting a LOT of political stuff that I see on Facebook, hoping that some of it will reach those poor mindless souls and get them to thinking. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Even more interesting to me are the Christians, who somehow think that deliberately allowing Satan to win (by not voting, or going third party) somehow makes them more moral. I’ve had discussions with a couple of them lately and it seems to me that they like to cherry-pick Bible verse to back up their warped views of morality. I believe that God gave us a brain because He meant for us to use it, but many don’t seem to look at it that way.
Yes, I know that I don’t have the corner on the market on either morality or intelligence, but this election is so day and night that there’s no excuse for indecision or self-righteousness. Still, I’ve grown tired of the insanity. I’m old and in ill health, and this election is making me older by the day. I give up. I’m going to do my best to post no more candidate-oriented posts from here on out, though I may slip up on occasion and do it before I think.
