In name only my backside

I’m thinking over the course of the next few weeks and months the republicans in Congress are going to reveal something or possibly many things about themselves to the Peoples of this Republic. Now that the “fix” for Obamacare has been pulled of the table, and the spending bill continues the government pretty much as it was, still funding the things that the so-called republican conservatives promised they would fight. By the way still no Wall.

Concerning Obamacare, now I understand that some republican congress critters all of a sudden love it. They have been referred to as “moderate republicans”, last I heard it was 18 of them. They do not want to change a thing. This has led to the term RINO’s(Republican In Name Only)being bandied about. I have no idea when or where the term RINO’s came about, and I really do not care. I had even referred to some republicans as being a RINO. I no longer do that. I began to referring to them as CINO’s(Conservatives In Name Only). I will no longer do that either. Quite frankly there is not other name to attach to them other than republican.

Since I am of the opinion that the republican party is the party of “big government and big business”, has been since the days of the federalist party and still is today. I would like to say that I do not believe that there is any such thing as a moderate republican. It is impossible. Being a “moderate republican” would be the same as a woman being almost pregnant. You are either a republican or you are not, one can only be pregnant or not. I mean after all what would a moderate republican stand for, a moderate government in size and power?

Let me get back to this Obamacare thing for just a minute. The democrats passed Obamacare without a single republican supporting it. So you must have been opposed to it right? None of you claimed that their was one good part or thing about it. If you were opposed to it, it would make good sense that you get rid of it now. You claimed then if you had control of the House you could get rid of it. You got control of the house. You did not manage to get rid of it. Them you said that if you got control of the Senate you could get rid of it. You got control of the Senate. You did not manage to get rid of it. Then you said if only you had control of the White House you could get rid of it. Your party now has control of the House, the Senate and the White House. You still can’t seem to get rid of it. You just did not get the president you wanted or expected. I might also mention that each and every spending bill including the latest one fully funds Obamacare. Come on admit it, you love the damn thing don’t you?

I think the American voters have been had, yet again. No, I know that we have been had. You have no intention of getting rid of Obamacare, never had never will. The democrats did for you what you would not do for you. Obamacare gave the federal government even more control over the American people and their lives. You are not going to give back that power. You will never repeal Obamacare. If you do replace it, it will with a republican plan, it will still be a government plan that controls people’s lives. You will win, we will lose.

Now let’s get to Planned Parenthood for just a moment. You were appalled when the videos were released of baby parts being sold. Where is your anger now? You funded them again. You’ve funded them every time. Explain that to me. You really weren’t appalled were you?

If the government was about to be shut down because the money was running out, where did you come up with the over 1 Trillion Dollars in your spending bill? You did not borrow it did you? You always wait for the very last minute and then come up with a bill that runs at least one thousand pages and piles of money. Was it just more smoke and mirrors? Political drama.

Since the new spending bill will take the government through the end of September you are pretty much finished for the year. You can now start planning your summer vacation. Lord knows you need one, what with being overworked and all. By the way do stop by and tell us of all the wonderful things you have accomplished. You will come back just in time to do a panic spending bill again. More political drama. I mean after you must not let the government shutdown. What would we do?

Now let me get back to your big government for just a minute. Both parties are all about the growth of government. The democrats are at least honest about it, where you deceive the voters at every turn. We, the voters that have been supporting you for so long have just been slapped in the face, again. It would seem that the republican party is the party of watch what we do, do not worry about what we say, when it comes to government. You are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The campaigning republican is not the same one that gets sworn into office.

Now let’s talk about your so-called principles for a bit. Some of you would not support President Trump during his campaign, you said doing so against your principles. It would seem that building up debts and running deficits as far as the eye can see is not against your principles. It would also seem that funding Planned Parenthood, an organization you claim to despise, does not go against your principles. It would further seem that stopping or even controlling illegal entry into this Republic would go against your principles. It would seem that the only thing that does go against your principles is losing an election. I don’t know but I have a suspicion that the very same ones who would not support President Trump then are the same ones who are fighting so hard against him now.

You are not Conservatives or Constitutional Conservatives, no matter your claims or the claims of the talking heads. You are republicans, plain and simple. I still would rather be in the company of Skunk than a republican politician. Go ahead prove me wrong.

I might add that the only reason that the conservatives even hang out in you party is that we don’t have any where to else to go. Not yet anyway.

On a personal note. Still looking for a political home. A couple looked “promising”. But that is what you have been doing for years. Promising and never delivering. Probably going to opt to be politically homeless.

DEO VINDICE

Has it gotten to this point?

It is starting to get a little ridiculous. This Republic is about as fractured as it can get, short of going completely over the cliff. The individual factions involved in this, I believe have not completely thought things through.

Try it.

Try it.

Each “plan” has consequences intended and unintended. Perhaps it is time to take a breath, slow the hell down and think.

I guess this is a good lace to start. Yesterday, I heard that some of the “distinguished” democrats(socialists)in congress are considering using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

this goes for women too.

this goes for women too.


Are you kidding me? You are really reaching, perhaps even overreaching. The way I heard it was that the plan was to remove President Trump because of or due to a diminished mental capacity. If you really want to see a person suffering from a diminished mental capacity look at yourselves, take a good long look, the videos are out there. But, let’s put that aside and go back to your “plan”. No matter what methods you use to pull off your “plan” the people will see right through it and you.

So for argument’s sake let’s say that you pull this off. After finding the requisite number of turn-coats in the administration to draft and send the letter, you remove President Trump. All you have done is to obtain your ends. You got what you wanted, you got the consequences you intended.

Have you ever considered what happens next? Those would be the unintended consequences. The people who voted for President Trump may not be willing to accept your actions. President Trump was elected because the voters have had just about enough from the “crap” from politicians. You will notice that I used the words “just about enough”. There will come a time when the ones who voted for President Trump will stand no more.

Now you find yourself between a “rock and a hard place”. You are right now where you thought you would never be. Another thing, I believe there are some republicans(socialists)hiding in your ranks. You find yourselves with a non-politician sitting atop the government, and being a non-politician he is not interested in gaining more power or control. He recently sent your bathroom issue back to the States. When was the last time a politician did that? He through the powers of his office issued an executive order, for every new regulation two must be eliminated? Lessening the power and scope of government. Again, when was the last time a politician did that?

Why are you so desperate? I’ll tell you why. The “demon” you built will be the instrument of your undoing, that’s why. Many on the left and the extreme left are running around screaming “he is not my president”. You now find yourselves having to do something before they destroy you.

That leads me to this. The State of California wants out of the Union, there is even an effort to get that initiative on the ballot. California wants to secede. Personally I wish you success, go in peace. When you leave do not forget to take your Representatives and Senators from Washington, D.C. with you. So all you that are “protesting” that President Trump is not your president can have your own country and elect your own president form your own government and all that goes with it. Then you can have the president you want. I do wish you happiness. This goes for all the other states who are not happy with the current president. Leave and take you Representatives and Senators with you as well. Good Luck to you also. You socialist politicians are not trying to remove President Trump so you can keep your job in D.C. are you?

I just had a thought. If you socialist politicians had not invaded and prevented the Southern States from leaving in 1861 President Trump would not be your president. Think about it. All the Electoral College votes from the South that made the difference, would not have existed if the South could have gone their own way in peace.

God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right)

God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right)


I like the Motto DEO VINDICE, God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right). God does work in His own way and in His own time.

But no, the North had to bring the South back into the Union by force. At the Muzzle of a gun and the point of a bayonet. Just think if you had just let us go you could have had the president you wanted.

That brings me to this question. Is that why the Leftist Socialist Progressives are so anti-gun? With out the gun the North could not have forced the South to come back.

My ancestors may be proven right yet.

Ain’t gonna take it no more no more

When the 115th Congress gets back to “work” tomorrow it will not be “business as usual”. The status quo is no more and not just because Donald J. Trump is president. The election of President Trump should have been your “wake-up call”. 94% of you in this Congress were in the last Congress. 100% of you are accountable to the tax payers, when the tax payers finally start holding you accountable will be another great event.

I have heard little if anything from you in regards to your plan for America under a new administration, a republican administration. I have heard much from some of you both republican and democrat on your plans to oppose a president Trump administration. You offer nothing better, you apparently will settle for the role of an obstructionist.

At least the President has a vision for America and what he thinks is good for America, sadly it appears that you do not. It appears that you place you and your party before your country. Perhaps the worst insult to the citizenry is the fact that you make excuses.

Let me remind you of this. Obamacare was forced down the throats of America. Total support from the democrats, and total opposition by the republicans. Thing is nobody even bothered to read the damn bill that became law. The former Speaker even said you have to pass it to find what is in it.

The republican leadership, at that time, said they could do nothing as the minority party, an excuse. The next election cycle gave control of the House of Representatives to the republicans and still nothing. The republican leadership, at that time said they could do little if anything without control of the Senate. You gained control of the Senate, retained control of the House and still nothing, another excuse. The republican leadership, at that time said they cold do more if they had the White House. Okay now you have control of the Senate, the House and the White House. It is now time to sh*t or get off the pot. Do not fail us. Now you have no excuse.

You claim to have no power when you are in the minority. The democrats seem to have all the power in the world when they are the minority. Could it be that you are actually one party?

I have a sneaking feeling that the laws you write do not always apply to you. I suspect that if Obamacare applied equally to you, there might have been more opposition. I also suspect if anyone bothered to read it, it would have had even more opposition. The same goes for Social Security and Medicare, you do participate in those mandatory programs, right?

Therefore and just to keep everything on the up and up it is probably time to amend the Constitution. This is only necessary because you apparently have neither morals, scruples, honor or integrity.

The Amendment should be entitled; Amendment 28-Legislation Clarified.
1. No legislation shall be forwarded to the President without first being read in its entirety by each member voting on such Legislation.
2. Each member will attest to having read the legislation in its entirety by placing his or her signature on the signature page.
3. Each member will attach a statement clarifying his or her support or opposition to the legislation.
4. Amendments or additions to the proposed Legislation shall face the same rules as the original Legislation.
5. Congress shall propose no Legislation that exempts any member of the Government, Elected or Appointed.
6. Congress shall not propose any Legislation that rewards or protects any one group or classification of citizens.
7. If the proposed legislation requires federal funds it must be clear in the legislation, amendment or additions exactly where the money came from and how it is to be funded.
8. No legislation will be submitted if is to be funded with borrowed money.
9. No Legislation will be submitted that is funded by future savings.
10. There will be no subsidized private programs or industries.
11. There shall be no further Legislation, Regulations or Rules at the Federal level that encroach on or abridge the Rights entitled to the States and the Citizens.
12. All haste will be made to repeal all Laws, Regulations and Rules at the Federal level currently in force that are Reserved to the States and the Citizens.

Now we come to a serious matter that does require the attention of the congress critters. While the previous administrations have embarked on a path of nation building, with your support America has been neglected. Much national treasure has been wasted in nations that have made little if any progress America has made no progress. Much treasure has been wasted at the U.N. with almost nothing to show for it. Few if any are better off for the wasted effort and this Republic is worse off. Some of America’s finest have been wasted or maimed in the name of politics, only to be injured again by neglect. This last presidential election from the primaries up to the general election was the people speaking out and someone finally was willing to listen.

Some have said this past election was about the forgotten, the forgotten men and women. While I agree with that, it also made a statement. The statement was “We ain’t gonna take it no more no more. We ain’t gonna be forgotten no more. We ain’t gonna take the insults and injuries no more. No more, damn it.

I would like to remind the congress critters that America is made up of 50 States and 1 District. This is especially important when it comes to funding the infrastructure projects. Do not repeat the failures of the past. There is more to America than the North East, the Upper Mid-West and the West Coast. You would do well to remember the South and the Heart Land.

As a matter of fact it would probably be all the better if the federal government stayed out of the infrastructure projects altogether and let the localities and states along with private enterprise handle it. The reason I say that is this; Why should I in Florida be forced to pay for improvements in another state?(more on this in a later post)

God Bless President Donald J. Trump our 45th President, the First Lady and the First Family. God Bless this Republic.

Lastly I would like to say this. God Bless Dixie and God Bless the Heart Land. The South and the Heart Land may be just what saved this Republic.(more on this in a later post, as well)

Fresh out of options

The same opening in the last post applies to this post. This is not an attempt by me to delve into the world of conspiracy theories, there are others who do that, I will leave that to them. This post like the last is intended to cause people to think. And as in the last post LLSP applies to the democrats and those hiding in the GOP.

The Electoral College vote yesterday made it official, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th 2017 at noon. One would think that it is finally settled and finally over. The LLSP have failed in every attempt to prevent yesterday from happening. They failed in their attempt to defeat Mr. trump in the primaries. They failed again at the GOP convention. They failed to defeat Mr. Trump in the presidential election. They failed again with the ridiculous re-count efforts. And finally they failed at the Electoral College. Save for a few “turncoats” it worked just as the Founders and Framers intended.

One would think that the LLSP were fresh out of options. That may not be the case. This is not the time for us, the sensible, in America to think that this is over. We must stay on our guard. History is a great teacher, we only have to look back. There are many historical facts that illustrate the point I am trying to make.

For the purposes of this post I would like to use Western Europe during World War 2. Hitler, the Nazis and the German military had control of most if not all of Europe by the spring of 1944. Europe was an occupied land. The German High Command had always known that there would one day be an invasion of Europe in an attempt to liberate the conquered nations. This I feel was one of the compelling reasons Hitler wanted to conquer the British Isles. Think about this for a moment. If the British Isles had fallen to the Germans, they could not have been used as the “jumping off point” for the D-Day invasion. Where would a suitable “jumping off point” be other than the British Isles? The British Isles did not fall and became the “jumping off point” for D-Day. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Think of the U. S. as an occupied land for a moment. A land occupied not by a foreign military, but by the political ruling class(LLSP), their henchmen and handlers. They too, have always known that there was the possibility of a liberation of this land. An invasion of Patriots, so to speak.

With the failure of the German military to subdue the British Isles, the Germans began building “Fortress Europe”. The coast line of Western Europe was bristling with guns from Spain to Norway, guns to repel the invasion. The German High Command also was faced with the problem of trying to best guess where an invasion would occur, and place the reserve forces nearest that point. The points they chose was Calais and Cherbourg.

The LSSP, their henchmen and handlers need not plan to repel an invasion from the sea, the Patriots were and are already ashore. They did not have to build a “Fortress America” they only had to divide America and Her Citizens into segments. The LLSP have only basic tactics they employ, Division and Character Assassination. Once a population is divided it is easy to assassinate their character. The LSSP have been dividing the population for years. They divide the population based on skin color, sex, money or the lack of it, religion or the lack of it, ethnicity and so on. Then they pit one group against another or the others which ever works best for them. Then the name-calling begins racist, sexist, homophobe and so on. If anyone still stands his or her ground their character is assassinated with even more name-calling and even allegations of bad behavior, even is those allegations have no merit. They have divided America the same way they have divided the population. America is divided into colors Red, Blue and Purple. The states fight the other states and the federal government fights the states.

The Allied invasion of Europe occurred on June 6th 1944 at Normandy. The German High Command could not believe what they were seeing. They even went into denial. The invasion happening before their eyes was occurring at the wrong time and in the wrong place. Many thought that the invasion was only a trick(deception), not real, and the real invasion would occur where and when they thought it always would. It was the only way. They never saw it coming, even though it was right before their eyes.

The LLSP find themselves in the same predicament. As stated above, the LLSP and their henchmen and handlers have long suspected that the Patriots would rise up and take back this Republic. They had always believed that the Patriots would rise up with Arms in an attempt to throw-off the government, much the same as the Founders and Framers had done so long ago. They guessed wrong, the Patriots did rise up and begin the process of taking back the Republic, but it was done with the ballot box not with the cartridge box. They never saw it coming, we used what the Founders and Framers had left for us. They had been long trying to disarm the population, through laws, rules and regulations and yes even trickery. Falling short of their goal of disarming the population, they resorted to building “Fortress Government” to counter the Patriots. Let’s not forget the massive amount of weapons and ammunition the federal government had been acquiring and stockpiling. Bristling with guns. Does that sound familiar? Failing in one goal and then building a Fortress. A Fortress to stave off what you fear most. Now the LLSP their henchmen and handlers have another problem. The “Fortress Government” that they built is about to fall into the hands of those it was to be used against, if the need arose. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Let’s not forget what happens when you think you have won when the enemy is still quite capable of fighting. Not just fighting but launching an offensive. The Battle of the Bulge as it is known started in mid-December 1944 and lasted till mid-January 1945.

The election of Donald J. Trump as 45th President of the U.S. was just the first step, much like the landing at Normandy. There is still a long way to go to achieve final victory. The LLSP for now appears beaten, but we must be wary. There is still time for them to do what they do best, muck everything up. The next “hurdle” is January 20th, it is akin to breaking out of Normandy and going “inland”. From Neptune to Overlord.

What If?

I don’t normally do this, but I figure what the heck. This is not an attempt on my part to enter the realm of conspiracy theories, I will leave that to others. It is just something to think on.

In the last post I ended with the question, How far are they willing to go. Also in the last post I kept making references to the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives(LLSP). The LLSP also includes those masquerading as Conservatives in the republican party.

I probably should have asked, What is their intention. I did not because their intention is heinous and unbelievable. Their unbelievable intention will be revealed at the end of this post.

First, the lead in.

Every couple of years America is embroiled in a Geo-Political war, not a shooting war but a war of politics. It is akin to the Feudal wars that waged across Europe long ago. The feuding political parties fight for control of America. There is even a map of feudal America, it is even colorized, blue for one political party and red for the other. This feudal war relegates the citizens of this Republic to little more than serfs. Serfs that are passed to the victor of the political wars. The victorious party only sees the citizens as little more than obedient servants, servants to the party.

There is even more to this political war we must endure so often. This feud is based on of all things demographics. This is how the colorized map comes into play. There are three classifications in the demographics. There are the consistently blue states, as well as consistently red states, the other are called swing states. The swing states are purple in color on the map. It is the purple sates that garner so much attention from the feuding parties. Little attention is paid to the consistent states. If you don’t believe that, ask yourself how many times your states are normally visited in a national campaign. In the state elections how many times is your county visited by candidates? Are you consistently blue or red, or are you purple? You can bet little attention is paid to blue or red counties. Demographics also let the party candidate know what to say and to who. There are certain things he or she can only say in blue areas. The same goes for the red areas. Never say red in blue. Never say blue in red. The purple areas are where most candidates show their true “colors”, they are purple, they say what the demographics say they should say. This had been going on for far too long.

This past election changed everything. There was a new “combatant”, the citizens finally got a chance to get in the fight. The feuding political parties got defeated on the field of honor. This is and was just the beginning. Donald J. Trump was the GOP nominee not because of the GOP, but in spite of the GOP. He beat all of the political elite to become the nominee, in spite of all the tricks they pulled, or was it because of the trickery. Now Donald J. Trump is the President-elect, not because of the political system, but in spite of it. He beat the DNC and the media in spite of all of the trickery, or again, was it because of it.

I like to refer to President-elect Trump as the Citizen President. In the past America had Citizen Soldiers now we have a Citizen President. The Minute Men come to mind, the ones who would be ready in a minute, to come to the aid and defense of their country. They were ready to answer the call. President-elect Trump answered the call, he came because his country needed him. President-elect Trump may have arrived just in time to save this Republic. One thing for sure this Republic has at long last been wrested from the claws of the political ruling class. Make America Great Again may be contagious, it could spread to the State, County and City levels. This could be what has the LLSP in such a tizzy.

Now, the unbelievable part.

I am sure that everyone has heard of crimes of passion and crimes of jealousy. For now let’s stick with crimes of jealousy. How many times has one spouse tried to leave the other for another. In a fit of jealous rage, the one being left murders the one leaving. The logic, If I can’t have you then nobody will. The right thing to do would be to let the one go who wanted to leave. Some do the right thing. Sadly, most choose to do the wrong thing, they murder the one they claim to have loved. Nobody wins, everybody looses when one acts out of a fit of jealous rage.

I have been doing some studying up on wars, shooting wars, civil wars. A goodly portion of them began because of politics. The Spanish Civil War was not an exception. I choose to bring up that civil war because of the term, Fifth Column. There were Four Columns outside of Madrid, but a general claimed to have a Fifth Column inside the city. What could not be solved through the political process was solved at the muzzle of a rifle and the point of a bayonet.

There was an old adage that went something like “If America were to ever be destroyed it would not be from the outside, it instead would be from within”. Most would agree that America has many adversaries on the outside. Aside from the occasional militant groups in history, there has never been what one could refer to as a Fifth Column. That may well be changing.

Let’s go back to the hacking for just a minute. The most recent accused of such activity is Russia. Others that have been accused of hacking are North Korea, Iran and China. Note the number, there are Four. All four would have something to gain by the demise of America. None alone are capable on their own of causing the demise of America. But what if the four of them joined forces? They would still be on the outside. There would be little if any help inside for them certainly nothing that would amount to a Fifth Column. The political ruling class, their henchmen and certainly their controllers have no intention of handing all of this over. Not in its present state anyway.

Let’s go back to the fit of jealous rage “If I can’t have you then nobody will”. The political ruling class, their henchmen and controllers have long suspected that the citizens of this Republic might someday awaken and see what was happening. Some of us have been awake for a long time, others are waking up. They have a plan to deal with an awakening population, they have always had a plan.

They always knew there was no Fifth Column available in this Republic. Their only hope was to import one. It began with the southern border, open the border to any and all. They did not care who they were loyal to. Look at the demonstrations, better known as riots, of recent. Which flag did they carry and which flag did they burn. You can bet that they are not loyal to this Republic. The awakening of the country began before they could bring in enough. What were they to do?

Start wars in the Middle-East, thus creating a refugee crisis. How many refugees have arrived in this Republic? Where do their loyalties lie?

We used the process laid out by the Founding Fathers to wrest this Republic from the hands of Tyrants and Despots. Yet these same Tyrants and Despots apparently seem to take on the role of the jealous spouse. By bringing in a Fifth Column you are choosing to murder what you have claimed to love.

See I told you it was unbelievable. Or is it?

Fences, Walls and Bridges

Fences are meant to keep something in or to keep something out. Ranchers use fences to control the movement of livestock, keeping something in. Farmers use fences to keep critters out of the planted areas, keeping something out. Fences are also used for ornamental purposes.

Walls outside of structural uses(homes and such)have been used to keep things out, including people. There were walls built around entire cities in history. There was a time when walls were built around forts. China even has the great wall, one of the seven wonders of the world. The great wall has even became quite a popular tourist destination.

Bridges have been constructed throughout history. They serve many purposes. They provide ease of access by avoiding obstacles, either natural or man-made. They are used to control and/or limit access.

Common sense dictates that one should build fences, walls or bridges when and where appropriate. What is happening in Europe at this moment is what happens when a bridge was built when what was needed was a wall. By the way, where is the country known as “the rape capital of the world” located? Oh, that’s right Europe. Was Sweden the rape capital of the world before or after the refugee invasion? I do not recall Sweden having that distinction prior to the refugee crisis. European countries have built a bridge that leads straight to their women and the raping hordes have been more than appreciative of that bridge. By the way, it is not only women that are being raped across Europe.

Kindness, compassion and being big-hearted are words the liberal socialist progressives and globalists like to throw around. The words themselves sound harmless even inviting, problem is the invading hordes are not harmless. Again I use Europe as an example, the Europeans have bent over backwards to be kind, compassionate and big-hearted to the refugees and look at what has happened. One can not be kind, compassionate or big-hearted to those who are incapable of showing even the slightest bit of gratitude. The ungrateful will most assuredly bite the hand that feeds them.

Fences and walls are no more than obstacles. One should always place as many obstacles as possible between themselves and those that would do them harm. The more the better and make them as formidable as possible. Unfortunately many governments are removing or have removed any and all obstacles between their citizens and those that would do them harm. It is not just the physical harm inflicted on the citizen but the economic harm. This is true in Europe as well as right here in the U.S.

The Politician and the Pastor

Before I begin let me say this, this post is not in reference to every politician or to every pastor. If this post does not reflect you(politicians and pastors)then it is not about you and you should not take offense to it. If this post reflects you(politicians or pastors)then it is about you and I personally hope that it offends the He double hockey sticks(Hell, in case you could not figure that out on your own)out of you. If your denomination uses a different term than pastor, just insert the correct title according to your denomination. One might not think so, but politicians and pastors have a lot in common. Both are servants.

Yes, politicians holding office are servants, they are public servants. They serve the public interest. The job even comes with a set of clear and explicit instructions. It matters not at what level they serve, there are instructions. Whether it be the U.S. Constitution, the State Constitution or the County or City Charter. Sadly, some who hold Public Office lose their way, they go from severing the Public Interest to serving their own Self-Interest. Rather than doing what is best for the public or the Republic they instead do what is best for them and furthering their political career. In addition to serving their own self-interests the serve their political party. They place their own interests and party politics ahead of this Republic and the citizens.

Yes, pastors are servants, they serve God and the congregation. This job too comes with a set of clearly defined instructions. It matters not what the denomination there are instructions. It is the Holy Bible. Sadly, some pastors have lost their way. They go from serving God and the congregation to serving their own best interests. They go from doing what is right in God’s eyes to doing what serves them best in their eyes. Once they no longer serve God there is no way to serve the congregation.

Power and control.
Government(politicians elected or appointed)does(do)have power and control, but only to a limited extent. Their power and control may be lost at the next election. In our government the ultimate power rests with the citizens, well it used to anyway. The only power government has is the power granted to it, well it used to be that way.

Pastors falsely believe that they have power and control over both the Church and the congregation. In truth they have power and control over neither. They can never have power over the Church, Christ is the Church. The Congregation is the body of Christ. No mere mortal can ever have power over the One who defeated death or his body. Silly human. God has the Power and is in Control. God’s power and control are not temporary.

Do as I say not as I do.
Politicians elected or appointed seem to think they are above the law. The same laws, rules and regulations they pass or shove down our collective throats. We are expected to obey the law, no it is demanded we follow the laws, rules or regulations or suffer the consequences. Some of them are apparently exempt as there are no consequences to be paid.

Pastors break the 10 Commandments or the New Covenant(sometimes both)and preach to the congregation about obeying the 10 Commandments and the New Covenant. No the written Word is for all to obey. Unlike the politician there is no loop-hole for you or a position so great as to avoid the consequences. Forgot that one did you.

The Cash-Cow.
Let’s face it there is a lot, I mean a whole lot of money in both politics and religion. There are many politicians and pastors who were quite wealthy before getting into politics or religion. Many became wealthy because of politics. Many became wealthy because of religion. No one should acquire massive wealth as a servant, not a public servant and certainly not a servant of God. There is a little something from the Bible that addresses money and possessions. Those who love money never will have enough and will be ruled by their possessions. A little bit more. As everyone comes, so they depart.

There comes a time when the most inept at their chosen profession must surely recognize that they are doing more harm than good they would just do the right thing for once and leave.
