What the country needs

March 2, 2016

I definitely don’t agree with most of the views of Bernie or Hillary, and I still hope for a conservative Democrat to appear in the race for presidency. The email issues and Benghazi should have already disqualified Hillary. And Bernie wanting to change us to be more like European or Scandinavian countries or like Australia is just foolish. The United States of America is special, unique; let’s not vote that away. Voting in politicians who want a larger, more controlling government is no guarantee that the world’s richest 1% won’t continue to run the show; in fact it guarantees they will continue in power!

What about George Soros, one of the richest people in the world, and his companies Freedom Group and Cerberus buying up gun and ammo companies? Is that to protect us from ourselves or to control us? I still hope for a “normal” Democrat, libertarian or independent to run. But either way, our success as individuals or as a nation will not come through a presidential candidate but by faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the answer to every issue from black lives matter to green energy to heroin use, to corporate greed, to poverty/welfare, immigration, gun rights, gay rights, abortion, divorce etc. Why? Because Jesus will change every person for the better, over time, for those who believe by grace through faith in the finished work of the Cross. What we need to do as Americans is turn off the “brainwashing tube” and read the New Testament. The book is only about half an inch thick, yet the power that comes from what is in the New Testament is immeasurable.
