    Sunday again.  Will God grant the USA the peace to move forward again?

    The steady heads have resolved the long and bitter Election 2016.  Now the time we have all waited for:  it's over!  Americans as a whole do not respect sore losers.  The rules existed for both sides.  Yet, some want to change the rules after the contest.  Is that what Americans have become?  Let's take a moment this Sabbath to ask God to grant the USA peace and the unity we need to progress.

    "The steady heads have resolved the long and bitter Election 2016."

    Don't accept your premise.  Twice now in 36 years we've ended up with a Republican president who didn't win the popular vote.  The last one took our economy to the brink and made decisions that resulted in more than 4,000 of our finest young Americans losing their lives.

    What will this one do?

      Certainly it may not be worse than what the current one has been doing without "the consent of the governed."

      So you disapprove of the war that Mr. Obama is waging against ISIS? Congress has refused to approve it, but he's forged ahead anyway. Do you think that Trump will get Congressional approval to fight ISIS?

    "Will God grant the USA the peace to move forward again?"

    God has nothing to do with our peace. God has given us Free Will to exercise ourselves. The question should be "will we make the right decisions and bring ourselves the peace to move forward again?" If it doesn't happen, there are always those who will blame God. Meanwhile, God will watch us from above, shaking his head, and saying "tsk, tsk, those crazy humans are at it again. When will my children grow up?"

    OK, there are those of us who believe that God is spirit and not a "Big person with a head to shake," but you get the picture. As far as changing the rules after the contest, that should only apply to those six states that allow people to go back and change their votes because vote changing should be made illegal unless the person accidentally hit the wrong button. Then the change should be made immediately, and not two weeks later after the votes have been unofficially tallied. Questioning the existence of the Electoral College has been around since its inception. Many voters have wanted to do away with it because it takes away the direct vote of the people.

    We were taught in junior high civics classes that this was a method of giving more power to the less populated states, however, this doesn't make sense because there is inconsistency among the laws that govern the electors of each state. For instance, twenty-six states have party pledge laws, while the rest do not. Some states split their electoral votes proportionately among the candidates. Also, there have been a number of candidates who received the majority of popular votes but lost the election. The last two who come to mind are Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, both Democrats, so there is room here for some suspicion and for some of the losing candidate's supporters to grumble. So please, don't put our human inadequacies on God.

      The idea that an Intrastate Compact can establish the popular vote as some "law of the land" in the absence of a Constittional change, this will run afoul when, say Kansas, has voters overwhelmingly choosing the loser of that popular vote but...what?

    Many of these rioters are paid to do so, just as MoveOn and other Democrat front groups paid people to create violence at Trump events to be blamed on conservatives in an effort to discredit them.
