I’m old enough to remember the scandal of Watergate and realize that our government was not as pure as I thought it was.  I was in early adulthood and a first time voter for a man who turned conspiracy, secrecy and betrayal into an every day occurrence in the United States.  Today it has grown into a standard for those in politics.  It seems the more scandal there is, the more popular the one who is creating it.

It’s really sad to an old woman like me to see the destruction of what we once held to be epitome of public office – the president of this great country.  I won’t stand still for what has turned into an ugly, corrupt state of affairs.  None of us should.  I believe that America is worth fighting for and right now we are in the fight of the century.

In the movie, “Mr.Smith Goes to Washington,” Jimmy Stewart became an overnight success.  The story was a slam dunk against the Senate and an undermining of an innocent man.  Joseph Kennedy, Sr. stated that the movie would “damage America’s prestige in England.”  The film actually showed the effects of one man standing against a broken system.

There are plenty of us grass roots Americans that are sick and tired of politics as usual and the seeming Mafia type tactics that have overtaken our politicians during the past several years.  Now we are engaged in a political circus that has two very different people running for office.  One is a liar and an abuser of the justice system and the other has wasted no time in jumping on the bandwagon to drag her through the dirt.  I know for sure I won’t vote for the crook, but the alternative leaves a lot to be desired.  On the other hand, we have two political parties that are desperately broken and our country is suffering because of poor leadership.  Have we become so apathetic that we cannot be bothered by the silliness of politics? Have we given up easily because it’s out of our realm to be involved?

We need another Mr. Smith to go to Washington and stand up to the powers that be.  We need to return to our core values as a nation.  We need to stand up for those values and not cave to political correctness.  By doing so, we are allowing our country to be flushed down the toilet.

We are told in the Bible to pray for our leaders and trust that God has instituted government for our benefit.  One person cannot change what’s happening in our political arena today, but one person has made it possible for us to realize that in the end, God wins  Our salvation was won at a great price  Our country can be won back by the people, only if they let their voices be heard.



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. You Go Girl!!!
    I can’t agree enough with your thoughts and words Kathy!!!!—
    and that Joe Kennedy was certainly one of the biggest hook and crooks—sold his soul to get his son to the white house—and lets talk about his leanings to Herr Hitler and Edward the VIII’s and Joe Chamberlain’s quest for appeasement—oh but that was then and this is now—-I can’t get over how this country, knowing of the Benghazi murders, the abuse of power with the “I’m above it all” attitude, with Bill, who is suppose to be a “regular” citizen these days yet the Attorney General seeks his counsel concerning his wife….and we’re all ok with all of this because as Madeline Albright tells us that “any woman who doesn’t vote for hillary has a special place reserved in hell”…..how dare she, how dare they…how dare the American people—has this country gone mad and turned the last blind eye to the shenanigans of our “leaders” and wannabe leaders???

    I can remember how sad I was watching Nixon, who I had liked as I thought his foreign policy was tremendous, apologize as he resigned from office. I can remember feeling so shaken as far as our leadership was concerned—now I am in shell shock—-

    No…Donald Trump is not the best person for the job, but he seems to beat the alternative—like I say, it’s not so much a vote for Trump as it is a vote for the lesser of two evils—-

    Wanton self indulgence and anything against Judaeo / Christian morals seems to be what this country wants—and I for one am gravely saddened.

      Im sure there was corruption in the early years of our country. It never got the media coverage it does now. Those in the media today are just a corrupt as those they write about. Whatever happened to integrity in journalism? I’m just so sick of all of it. I had to blow off some steam!

    I pity the US voters if they have to choose between these two! Surely it should be our best men and women with the most integrity in the positions of power. The world is upside down and inside out and has been for a very long time.

      I know the consequences of not voting at all so, like you, I will vote my conscience. Many folks
      Had their doubts about Reagan as president too. Maybe we’ll be surprised.

  4. I pray good people don’t stay home but go out and vote. They say they don’t like the choices. I’m not excited about the choices either. So I am voting according to my stand concerning abortion and I’ve picked that one issue to focus on. I will not vote for someone who is for tax supported abortion. I also think that if you don’t vote then by your silence you are actually voting. So focus on who is the worst. Pick an issue you feel strongly about and vote according to that issue.
    I do pray for God to have mercy on us/ USA.

    I think what disturbs me the most is how broken things are. Even the justice system has become a sham.

    I will still exercise the right to vote in honor of the men and women who sacrificed all to give me that opportunity. I just pray that our country makes a turn for the better soon!
