Political Change

Well, the election season in the United States is long since over, and all the new politicians are now in office (along with many old politicians).

I'm disappointed, because nothing seems to have changed.  The politicians are still making decisions, based on whether something is Democratic or Republican.  I would prefer a system, where people make decisions based on whether something is right or wrong.

During the election year, both parties promised that many things would change.  And yet, their behavior has not changed one bit.  I am not longer inclined to trust a politician who promises change.  Instead, as a good Catholic, I am only going to put my trust in one type of change.

the reason that there is no change is because both parties arbitrarily oppose each other on every issue, whether right or wrong, just for the sake of opposition: members of both parties have had good ideas and tried to take action but have been hindered by the strictly partisan voting in congress :(

I would love it if things changed and people made decisions based on whether something is right or wrong, too. The thing is, many people don't have biblical morals and don't believe in right and wrong. It's incredibly sad.

Ditto what "L" said. I'm sad about the state of our country, too. As a Christian, I am only going to put my trust in one thing: That Jesus will return some day and make ALL things change - for the better!

The vast majority of politicians make their decisions based on whether it will help or hinder their chances of re-election. Sad, but true. Accordingly, the vast majority of politicians are incredibly partisan in their voting, because the voting BASE gets their undies in a twist if someone votes for something endorsed by the opposite party (or doesn't vote for something endorsed by their own) whether or not it seems "right or wrong."

And FWIW, to people like L, et al, I don't believe in "biblical morals." I am - get ready to clutch your pearls - an atheist, and yet I STILL manage to have a sense of "right and wrong" with ALL the various ambiguities in-between. I believe in ethics, and I believe in universal morals. Christians aren't the only ones.

GOOD FOR YOU,Michael! I get tired of hearing Christians saying they are gonna vote for so-and-so, cause they think that person will hold to Christian values. They won't. Politicians will do what their party wants..only Christ will bring about his own kingdom.

Oh look all the ten year year old Christians came out to actually pretend to understand anything about politics. Jesus this and Jesus that, does he know you can't spell?

As a christain i'm going to leave this for all atheist's and non-christain's to Think about. If I die and i'm wrong than I lose nothing but if you die and you're wrong then you lose Everything!
