The Hard Left’s IDOLATRY of SELF + SOCIALISM. 100% WRONG!!!

Posted: March 18, 2019 in World On The Edge

In the past some admirable politicians intended that their life’s work be their monument, but in this age of power hungry fame junkies far too many politicians make it all about the monument, and not about the work. Too many politicians, especially on the hard left, are examples of self-idolatry. Too many power-hungry politicians put themselves above us. Too many corrupt politicians seek to make their undignified, and even criminal, lifestyles seem the norm, not the abnormal. Where are the admirable words that ought to apply to our leaders, such as honest, noble, trustworthy, and selfless? Those words have nearly disappeared, and instead WE are supposed to settle for those who somehow propel themselves to fame through outrageous and plainly stupid platforms that do not help, but harm Americans.

Self idolatry stems from the weaknesses within all human beings. Catholics call them the seven deadly sins: Pride, Greed, Envy, Lust, Anger, Sloth, and Gluttony.

Each of the seven deadly sins is a form of Idolatry-of-Self. We all know people who may be in danger of destroying their own lives in selfish ways through one or more of them. And they are the way of the today’s world. Just look around. But it is the politicians WE vote for that hold a huge part of OUR individual lives in their prideful, greedy, envious, lustful, angry, lazy, and gluttonous hands. Where are the GREAT leaders?

Well. . . we do have a few.

Just as we–and the politicians–have the capability of sin, we also have the capability of virtue. The seven virtues are: Faith, Hope, Love, Prudence, Temperance, Courage, and Justice.

Are these virtues the way of our world today? Good news; many times they are, because whenever there is great evil, virtuous people will fight. Sadly, the reverse is also true. If a person is known to have virtue, there is usually someone to tear him/her down–even to crucify him.

President Trump is admittedly not a saint, but he is a great leader who is concerned more with the United States of America than with himself. Does he have an ego? Who doesn’t? Yet, he also shows an example of the seven virtues. He has faith in America and her people. He has hope for the future of Americans. He has love for God, his family, and the American people. He has an unusual amount of prudence and temperance. He is courageous, and I believe he is just. But because he is all this, there are plenty who want to crucify him for it. And of course, they do attempt to crucify him daily, as well as those who promote his message.

The Democrat slogan–we are stronger together– sounds good, but it is hypocritical, for they have only succeeded in dividing us. They have pitted races against each other, religions against each other, male and female against each other, parents against children, and now, they are attempting to push America into Socialism. Just take a look at what Socialism is.  Check it out: https://thefederalistpapers.org/us/capitalism-vs-socialism-brilliantly-explained-for-dummies

This is NOT the sign of leadership. They are not the party representation America needs, or wants.

If you are thinking of voting for what the Democrat party presently advocates, then watch this eye-opener!
