Politics, Debt, Deficits, How Will We Survive
Hope For the Future
Debt, deficits, politics, big spending by our government, when will it end? #President Elect Donald Trump will spend more that 100 million on his inauguration, based on a report from the television series Good Morning America. Wealthy donors have contributed to this ceremony which will be the biggest most extravagant and expensive #inauguration ceremony given in American history. Trump, previously claimed that he would never accept money from donors like this because he was so rich himself and had his own money. So many lies and untruths have already been told and his presidency has only existed for a month.
During the morning television show #CBS This Morning, news correspondent Gayle King, featured a story which explained, "In the second installment of our series #We The People, we go beyond the polls to explore Americans' hope and their fears under a Trump administration. So we traveled all around the country to talk to four different people we have been following. Each had different political backgrounds and beliefs. Here they are in their own words: Steven from Carmel, CA said, "I voted for Donald Trump. I think he is doing a great job so far other than the fact, he can't get his cabinet approved." Haley, from Struthers, OH stated: "If you did vote for Trump, I'm having a hard time seeing how you would still remain supportive of him. He's kind of reneging on his promises from the campaign. . . I wake up every morning scared to turn the news on because of what I might see." Caesar, from Staten Island, NY discussed how immigrants feel as he revealed, "We crossed the border in the middle of the darkness at night and because of the hard work of my mother. . . Donald Trump's rhetoric has been divisive. Children were afraid to see their parents walk out because they may never see them again. . . Sadly, we are creating this #modern underground railroad where people have to hide from the government." Leo, a black man from Smyrna, GA expressed these words about how effective President Trump has been for the past month, "I think he's addressing the issue of immigration. He may have done it in a blunt force way but the things that needed to be done are being done. I'm not looking for a rhetorical genius. I'm looking for a guy who will fix the problems of America."
Oprah Winfred for President in 2020 is that the Answer?
Women's issues are being addressed daily through the revelation and discussion of sexual harassment. This platform has brought up the question, will Oprah Winfrey run for President of the United States and is this the solution to our problems? Various news programs made this the focus of their discussion. On CBS This Morning, news correspondent Kevin Frazier stated, "As the first African American to be given the #Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement Oprah Winfrey, turned her acceptance speech into an arousing expression of female solidarity."
During Oprah's speech, profound statements were made which could possibly be construed as political rhetoric. Winfrey eloquently stated, "So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had to feed their children and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon." Clearly, Oprah does show compassion for people regardless of race or gender. Is that enough to qualify her for the office of President and is Oprah the answer to our real problems?
Kevin Frazier's interview continued with this proclamation; "Oprah for President? Golden Globe speech fuels speculation about 2020 run. Oprah's longtime partner #Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times that, 'It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it.'" If Oprah does decide to throw her hat into the ring, will she be able to resolve the needs of all people?
Failure of Government for the Needs of the People
The poor, elderly and middle class are being taxed to the extreme through property, payroll and gas taxes. Billionaires and millionaires, in the meantime are not feeling the pinch of these taxes. One point trillion dollars will be spent to maintain America's debt over the next ten years. Criticism about, "#President Obama being backed into the corner by #Republicans who were negotiating like terrorist," for the advancement of their own political goals, was mentioned on #CNN Live. Some political officials claim that Social Security and Medicare are protected, while others say that it is not under this new deal that was passed by a 269-161 vote in the House of Representatives. One representative called the deal, "A sugar-coated Satan sandwich." Some individuals claimed now that the debt deal has been passed, "the world won because we did not bring down the economy with us." Some representatives were accused of trying to harm the economy for their own personal political advances. Hopefully, the #bickering is over for now and we can all move on with the business of the people.
The question still lurks, Did we make a deal with #Satan and If we did, what hope is there for the future? Expertise in the #political arena is not my forte but faith in Almighty God Jehovah, is the focus of my beliefs. This faith in God's government is based on the kingdom Jesus Christ, taught us to pray for at Matthew 6: 9,10. "You must pray, then this way; Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth." ( NWT of the Holy Scriptures) These words continue to give us our only hope for the future. With the countdown of promises by our political such as Donald Trump, we must be ever diligent in our faith to believe that only our Heavenly Father and Creator can provided solutions that will benefit all mankind.
Our Need to Draw Closer to Our Grand Creator
We are in desperate need of genuine answers during these perilous times. Without serious hope for the future based on God's kingdom, any of us could fall into severe depression because we cannot rely on imperfect men to get us out of this mess. Some of these political officials are genuine in their interest to deliver and save mankind. The only reality is that this responsibility was given to Jehovah's son, Jesus Christ. He is our only savior and nothing will ever change that. The more we read Jehovah God's word the #Bible daily, the more we will understand his purpose for each of us as his creation.
It is always amazing when humans forget that they have a creator and it is truly up to Almighty God, what happens in the end to mankind. Some entertainers have decided to go against the Bible saying that it is "too restrictive." Yes, there maybe things within God's word that we may feel are restrictive but in the end, Almighty God gave us life, no matter how much we try to proclaim his nonexistence and say that we #evolved. In the end when that last breathe of life escapes our lifeless bodies, we will have to rely upon our Grand Creator to restore life to us in the resurrection. Notice that point at Hebrews 11:35, "Women received their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, that they might rise again to a better life." The Holy Bible Revised Standard Version
Whether we are politicians, entertainers, housekeepers, secretaries, children or elderly, we all owe our life to a #Grand Creator. If we were really in charge and evolved which would give us a certain amount of control, we would see some of our loved ones; right now here on earth that we have loss in death. Although the demons can imitate our dead loved ones and pretend that they are these individuals, the demons can never become flesh again and walk the earth to live among us daily, like your loved ones did previously. That is why it is vital that we read the Bible to discover the truth about our dead loved ones and the hope we have for seeing them resurrected back to life in the future.
Think seriously about what we see as it unfolds before our eyes in this world today. Whether it is politicians that make decisions on our daily lives, or people who do not believe that there is a God. Romans 1:20 magnificently explains, "For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." Jesus taught us to pray for a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. While on earth Jesus proved that through the power from his Heavenly Father Jehovah, he could feed the hungry, raise the dead, there would be no racism, politics, sickness, death, pain or sorrow. It would be foolish on our part not to vote once and for all time, for God's kingdom ruled by his son Jesus. Never will the snare of disappointment entrap us, to be disappointed in men or women because we voted for them in search of a savior; when we already have a perfect one based on #Jesus Christ. It is up to each individual to continue their search for that savior. We should be thankful to have personally found him already, which gives us tremendous hope for the future. May each of us continue our search of truth based on God's word the Bible.
