In 2016 the 45th President of the United States will be elected by the will of the people. The selection of leaders is part of the freedom we enjoy under democratic rule. The responsibility to choose the most qualified person should not be taken lightly. The candidates should be carefully scrutinized for principle as well as their knowledge of constitutional law. They should have an honest desire to serve for the good of the people and not for personal gain. They should have strong moral character with a humble heart toward God. In general, we ought to be able to hold the President of the United States in the highest esteem.
Unfortunately, our great republic has been hijacked by professional politicians. Their goals are self-serving, motivated by greed and power. Originally, term limits were established to weed out this type of villain but today they overwhelm us. The corruption is not subject to any one party or faction, its universal. It’s the first sign of Empire collapse!
Selection of corrupt leaders is a reflection of the voters. It’s time to examine our own motives and ask, are they for the good of all the people or are they for selfish special interest.
Joshua was a great jewish military leader full of faith and integrity and the nation of Israel succeeded under his leadership. After Joshua died no one stepped forward and took the reins. A weak government run by useless judges lead to anarchy. The people then called for a king to rule them. Samuel, a man of faith and integrity, sought God on the matter because the people rejected his leadership. God told Samuel their rejection was against God not Samuel. The people got their way and the first King of Israel was inaugurated. One bad King followed another. The nation would prosper or fail depending on the faith and moral conviction of their King. The lack of both eventually lead to the collapse of their sovereignty.
Could it happen in the United States of America? It is happening! For more about the collapse of the modern era read “Beam me up Commander” it’s free!
