Alabama Election

For all those bewailing the results of the Alabama election or the most recent presidential one - have a little faith. 
This system was designed to withstand the election of fools so long as the citizenry maintains it's character.  That's right my fellow Americans, this nation is as good or as bad as are it's citizens. 

Our government  is a direct reflection of the character of the people. If the people are self reliant and personally responsible, the government will be limited and unobtrusive.  If the people are lazy and apathetic enough to leave the duties and responsibilities that should be their own to a faceless bureaucracy, then the government will become corrupt and tyrannical. 

 The solution to all of our current political woes is to bring up your own game. 

Build your own character. 

If you are receiving money from the government, get yourself into a place where you are not - if you can.

If you are depending on government for anything, stop it.

Prepare yourself and you family to support yourselves. 

Get to know your neighbors. 

STUDY the history of this nation. Find out how our government is supposed to work and what it is supposed to do and what it is not. For those responsibilities that do fall on the government, find out on which level of government those responsibilities are to fall. 

Find out what responsibilities are supposed to be yours in this republic and shoulder them. Don't allow the government to remove them from you.  Because freedom and responsibility are two sides of the same coin. If you give your responsibility into the hands of the government - the freedoms go with it.

Recognize that helping each other is an individual responsibility. Charity is not the job of the federal government. The people of the states may do what they like.

"20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?" ~ Eze 18: 20-23
