Seems there is no use

in trying to improve the situation in DC by sending new people in at election time. Check this out over at   The Travis McGee Reader (which is on my blog roll of course)

Until, and not until then, we have the power locally as was designed in the Constitution, sending anyone, no matter how good they seem to be, to help fix the mess in DC, is similar to sending a clean person into a sewer and expecting them to not get dirty, when trying to unplug or fix it!

It’s true evidently. Power does corrupt. Absolute power does corrupt absolutely.

Those of us in the other circle who think we can elect and send good people to Washington to fix this country are very naive. There is too much power, money and greed. And they could care less what most of us think. As evidence by how they treat us. And many of us are to insipid and  thick to even realize it. We can be bought off with our own money, that really doesn’t even exists, but it is kind of like the Emperors clothes. Everyone must admit that our monetary system is still viable, or we will all go down in flames.


So very sad when you think of what this great country once was.

But the bumbling and greed and outright theft of so much by so many over the past 200 some years has led us to where we are today. And we have reached the point where they CAN and do buy us off at every election.

I am not sure how to fix it, but I pray to God every day that we can and do.

But I am afraid many are not going to enjoy or really want what it will take to do so.

Do you know why the Greatest Generation, was the Greatest Generation? Because of the times they lived thru’. When sacrifice was the norm. And sadly, very few today are willing to make any sacrifice, no matter how small. Yes there are a few, such as our people who volunteer to serve, selflessly and not for the money, but for the belief in something.

Would that we deserved their sacrifice and time they devote for us, as a whole.

Sad, so very sad what this country has become.

  1. Yes JB, it is sad what we have become. The downward spiral is a result of sin. It is a sin to forget the God of the bible, to not even read God’s word, let alone obey it. It is a sin to reject Christ, the messiah as being worthy to follow and trust. It is a sin to set aside the worship of a holy God in favour of pleasing ones own self. There are consequences to sin. Y’know, even on the human level when a person who is offended by the actions of another has an opportunity to respond, payback can be ‘hell’. So then, how can a nation that has rejected God, and has gone their own way expect that God will not offer up some consequences? A day of reckoning is coming. You ever hear of so many unusual weather related disasters? Me neither. ‘Spose God is speaking to folks? Open the bible and have a gander at 2 Chronicles 7:14. I share your sadness, but I know that God is merciful and just. The scripture above is for christians to heed, and God will keep his promise. The key is for people who call themselves christian to be just that. And God will be faithful. Was he not faithful in allowing the founding fathers of this country to start this new republic? He was indeed, as the leadership back then purposed to establish a lawful nation, one that followed God’s law as evidenced in the constitution. Guess I’ve said a mouthful and it’s time to git. Thanks for the ‘podium’. Follow hard after God.. Ain’t easy, but when God is in it, there is sucess, when man is in it , there’s failure.

    1. JJ, you said a mouthful! But I sometimes wonder if things are not going somewhat as they are supposed to and that this world is just a tiny, tiny part of what we are really supposed to be here for. I think we should remember that the next one is much more important than this one and be preparing for it. But what do i know?
