The Ugliness is Growing. We Can No Longer Hide it.

Posted: August 28, 2019 in World On The Edge


Sometimes we’re concerned only about appearances; the outside of things. We stuff closets with things we don’t want any visitor to see. We cover our faces with make-up, and our bodies with just the right clothes to make a favorable impression. We say all the things people want to hear whether we believe in them or not. We all do this to some extent.

On the surface it may be harmless–unless we are covering-up–and yes, hiding– an ugliness going on inside us. When we are concerned only with what others think about us, we have no principles. When we say one thing in daylight when everyone is watching, but do another thing in the dark when no one sees us, then we are hypocritical, self-serving, and false human beings who should not be trusted.

Isn’t this what we despise about politicians? Their dishonesty. Their hypocrisy. Their self-grabbing. Politicians polish up the outside of themselves so that they appear to care for the downtrodden, when the downtrodden are only a means to votes.

We see this today, as far as I’m concerned, in the Democratic Party where nothing is too sacred to use for their own selfish gain. Those on the far left of this party are crusted over with hatred, incivility, and an actual call for violence against those they disagree with. They are completely self-serving, without regard for our country. Where are those principled stops that ought to be there?

There are times when any of us may consider an action that is completely self-serving, BUT we don’t, because some life-principle we believe in, stops us. However, there seems to be no life-principle to stop the self-aggrandizement of the left-wingers in this party. No lies they will not tell, no people they will not use, no person they would go out of their way to honestly help.

For years, they were in a position to actually help the people who voted for them, who depended on them–however the country did not fare better when they were in power, but worse.

Today, our country is finally making gains–big gains of respect which had been so lacking throughout the world, gains in our pocketbooks due to jobs in a booming economy, and a burgeoning strength for Americans of all races–not pitting one race against the other, or one gender against the other to get votes.

In the upcoming election, we the people–all the people, have the ability to keep moving forward. Don’t let the left-wingers destroy our progress.

Inside each of us, is the potentiality to do right, or to do wrong. By our life principles we choose the path for one or the other. And before doing so, we make must make judgments, especially when we VOTE.

If there is no judgment, then evil is good and good is evil.–Fulton J. Sheen

I must judge the left-wingers in this party. As an American Citizen and VOTER, I must ask: where are their principles? Where would their path take America??

I suggest it is not the right path. I suggest that time and time again it has been the wrong path of plunder, self-indulgence, and complete hypocrisy. I watched the unbelievable nastiness of their lies in the Kavanaugh confirmation, as I’m sure you did. The lengths they would go to in order to get their way was abominable! I hear them legislate death for new born babies who have survived abortions! I watch them preach for open borders, for giving away the rights of Americans to those who come illegally. I see the streets of the cities they run piled with homeless people living in squalor. And I hear their so-called progressive claims that they are more compassionate, more intelligent, more moral than conservatives. It is obvious that they are NONE of these things. They are the party that if given more power will spread their deadly bacteria, lead us into Socialism, and finally bring an end to America, the greatest nation on Earth. I cannot vote for anyone in such a contaminated political party. Can You?

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You cleanse the outside of cup and dish,
but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence.
Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup,
so that the outside also may be clean.” –Matthew 23:26-27

We must pray for America. We must pray for life, for the family, for honesty in government, and in ourselves.

  1. It’s become so ugly, dear Kaye, that I’m becoming more of a political agnostic by the day, no longer believing that there will ever be a Mr. Smith in Washington again, one who has the best interest of his constituents in mind. I realize that the good ones left in D.C. are outnumbered now. Things have gotten so crazy and weird that I fear for future generations. Lord have mercy – that’s all I know to pray these days. Lord have mercy on those who still walk with you, who still trust in you, who still believe that you are our only hope. Have mercy on us during these perilous times.

      Yes, Debra. ‘Lord have mercy’ is the best prayer for today! I’m hoping that the number of ‘good ones’ left in DC have been simply overpowered by the lies of single-minded leftist news organizations, and that there are more ‘good ones’ (not only politicians, but voters) than the few we hear about, and that when it comes time to stand up, they will indeed stand up. Because there are those who still trust in this nation which has been so blessed by God. Thanks so much for replying!!
