A comment from the article posted previously “The ‘Lesser Of Two Evils’ Con-Game” is presented for your consideration:
If voting for the “lesser of two evils” is the formula we need to adopt (sic) and one in which we will “gain” better footing on which to build the freedoms we are so rapidly losing, why hasn’t it yet worked? Have we not always voted for the lesser of two evils, or to put it more pc; haven’t we voted for the candidate that said the things we liked most and both opposing candidates have said things liked by both sides, both sides claiming their candidate was best?; Ultimately each candidate being the lesser of two evils and we chose the best one. Or have we always chosen the worst one thus leaving us in the known and obvious continued decline of our freedoms, economy and status? How is it we can explain our situation otherwise? Do we have more freedoms now or less compared to the foundation of our country? Is our debt lighter now than then? Does our government, both state and federal, maintain more control over our lives while seeking more? Do we presently do anything of any consequence without first seeking “permission” from government? IF so, please advise me just what that is. “Our” representatives, at both levels and from both “sides,” author and submit thousands of pieces of legislation each year in each state. Have you checked their web sites? It is staggering! Can we say that this legislation offers less control over our lives or more? If it takes this much legislation to “run” our country, we are in deep trouble because there must be more wrong that needs legislation to correct than ever before. Why is this so? Are we so “lawless” a people that every aspect of our lives needs to come under the control of government? and the legislation they pass? Well, I digress.
The Biblical tenet we are talking of is put this way: “. . . Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?” I Cor. 5:6, Gal 5:9; and, “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries, either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” James 3:11-12; and, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” Mat. 7:16-18. So we find either the tree beareth good fruit or evil, the fountain fresh water or salt, and a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. Consequently, there cannot be the “lesser of two evils” because this is an impossibility in the eyes of God. It is either good, or it is evil, there is no “in between” as the phrase suggests. This is why, if you’ll check the early constitutions of the states, that you had to be a professing Christian who believed in the Bible both new and old testaments to qualify for holding public office.
The whole litany of concepts brought up such as “dreams” etc. are not in jeopardy because one man is president as opposed to another. All of these have disappeared from the horizon since legislation has already passed and been put in place under several Republican and Democratic administrations, including the Reagan administration, that takes these away. It is only a matter of enforcing them when the time is right that keeps them from becoming a public debate along with the censorship of the media.
Health care is neither a state issue nor a federal issue, it is a personal issue outside the purview and jurisdiction of the government entirely. Show me where we gave this authority to government in the constitutions which we wrote establishing the parameters of their power. It is not there, so, in essence, we have bought into the idea/propaganda that one, or both of these institutions have the power to force us into contracts whether we want to or not.
If we believe Obama or Romney, or our state governments, are the answer to our dilemma, we are deluded and our faculty to reason has left us. The only answer is found in; We the People, the Declaration of Independence and our own state constitutions such as North Carolina’s under Article I Sec. 3, and, ultimately, the Bible.
If we look to government we are lost and that without repair.
