Is This Democracy?

I just sent a letter to the editors of three different newspapers stating my opinion as clearly as possible about the current political condition we find ourselves in this country. While I realize most of you who have followed me on Facebook, etc., already know who I believe should not have won; but that is not the subject of this posting. What the purpose is, however, concerns how we are seeing how a broken political system such as we currently have can result in both unexpected and undemocratic ways. Whether you wanted Trump or Clinton is not the issue here. The question is do you want to live in a democratic society, or some other form of government. Please read this article to see what I mean:

 

Is This Democracy?

 Citizens of the United States are either rejoicing or lamenting the election of Donald Trump as the next president of our country. While many ask the question of if Trump is even qualified to hold such a position, many are also asking a more basic question: Is this really how the top leader of a democracy is chosen?
              In childhood we are taught that in our democratic system the majority rules. The vote of the majority chooses who will lead, who will make decisions, who will write the laws.
              But that is not what we are witnessing. Through the electoral system, the electors of a few, smaller states, will effectively over-ride the votes of over two-million voters. That is two-million more voters who voted for Hillary Clinton than those voting for Donald Trump. This system of electoral voting has thus overshadowed democracy making the desire of the populous, expressed through their votes, irrelevant.
It is time for U.S. citizens to demand the end of the Electoral College system. Please contact your local elector and insist that they vote as expressed by the national vote count. Democracy is now in your elector’s hands — and yours.

Hate, Love, and Thanksgiving

Looking for God in Messy Places

The Nazis imprisoned my mother in one of the lesser-known concentration camps. Mauthausen was located about 12 miles from her home, Linz, Austria. More people are familiar with camps like Auschwitz, Dachau, and Treblinka, but Mauthausen and its nearly 100 subcamps was one of the largest labor camps of the Nazi Regime.

Having Peace In Conflict

This month, Rogene (Genie), my Spirit lead wife, has a message which everyone should read and heed who proclaim and are dedicated to living a spiritual life and helping to bring forth a more perfect existence on this planet we call home. While many Godly oriented people are today cheering for who has been chosen to be our next U.S. president, others are now weeping. Emotions are rampant and becoming chaotic. Violence and hatred have taken control of many of our nation’s streets, led by fear; yet the truly spiritually led person knows that we are told:

“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”                     (John 7:24)

But now the choice has been made. In just a few weeks we will have our new president and to make righteous judgment we must realize that we really do not know what type of leader Donald Trump will be for the United States. Therefore, I hope the new president the best for his first term of office, but I will refuse to get caught up in either the rejoicing or the grief many are feeling because of this decision. While some people trust in guns and tanks to bring about the changes which cannot seem to be brought forth peacefully, and others trust in fear and violence, Genie and I have made a conscious decision to trust God’s holy nature of Agape Love.

— In him be the glory.

    — In him shall we live and serve and have our peace..

 

Here is what Genie wrote:

_____________________________________

Jesus, the Master Teacher, came to this earth to teach us how to live.  But if we read the Scriptures we will see that he had issues with the religious leaders of his day.  We get a glimpse of the anger that led to the over-turning of tables driving those who were taking financial advantage of worshippers out of the temple in Matthew 21:12. Mark 11:15 and John 2:15.  He was even known to call the Pharisees vipers including. Matthew 23:32-ch25 is one example of this.

We also see great sorrow as the Messiah wept over Jerusalem in Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34:

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”

Many have been experiencing anger and sorrow following the American presidential election while others rejoice.  For me there is sorrow and disbelief that many who call themselves “Christians” appear to be supporting and ushering in a scene which appears to be what they fear most, instead of their hoped for “salvation” from the destructive forces of darkness.  There is also at least a little anger within me toward these people and their leaders for the hatred and fear they spew in the name of God.

Please, let me explain: This is not the first time I have experienced this type of anguish. I watched in disbelief as dedicated, called women of God were kept from or driven out of “the ministry” in attempts to preserve the “boys club.”  The attempts to keep the women “in their place” included physical violence and intimidation, all justified in the name of God.

I have wept as I saw my loving and caring home church left in ruins after a “hostile takeover” by a group who felt the church was “too liberal.”  In their attempts to “save” the church it was severely damaged.

Looking back on my life now I can see that I have been prepared for this time.  Once again I have watched as the fabric of the union of these United States, and it’s diversity of races and cultures, have been ripped to pieces as was the church in which I was raised.  The progress we thought we had made now so easily destroyed by realizing the anger that was seething under the surface all along.

Perhaps one day we will finally come to realize that we cannot depend on the governments of mankind to save us.  The time has come to trust God and walk in the Light.

My reaction to the election results has surprised even me.  I am a person who is somewhat given to fear and panic, however in a real crisis I usually step up and find the strength to find a way through.  The message I received through spirit before I had seen the news the day after the election that said, “It’s Trump, but it’s okay” did not mean that he will be a great leader and the world will be saved through him.  It meant that what happens in this world will happen.

I will continue to trust God and walk in the light.  The sun will continue to come up each morning and the birds will continue to sing. It also doesn’t hurt that I am surrounded by angels and the white light of God right now.

So, along with Paul in his letter to the Romans (8:31), I ask, “If God be for us, who can be against us?”

Who is with me in this faith?
