A Vote of No Confidence
he Election of 2020 is one for the history books. In 2008, Barack Obama won the Presidency with sixty-nine million votes. In 2012, he won again with sixty-two million votes. In 2020, Donald Trump lost with a historic seventy-five million votes. You only have to look at the gerrymandered maps of political districts to see the crookedness of American politics and the crookedness of the hearts of men. Donald Trump was an anomaly. He really thought he could Make America Great Again. He was hated by the elites on both sides of the field, playing a deadly game. Trump was no Hitler. Trump was made in the USA. He is the USA, and his uncouthness simply uncovered the truth that the system was always rigged. He could not be bought, and this brought down the wrath of the donor class, who believe everything is for sale. From Bill the Butcher and Tammany Hall, to Chicago’s Mayor Daley in the North, to the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, Poll Taxes of the South, the truth lies as cold as the corpse of Jimmy Hoffa. Politics is a blood sport. Changing the rules in the fourth quarter, on fourth down, (making Election Day into Election Month) or moving the goalposts after the spotted ball is kicked, proves too many believe all’s fair in love and war, and politics. There is no way to prove the cards were marked if you burn the deck or bleach the hard drive. Like the two on the Road to Emmaus, disappointed because they “thought that it was he,” many are saddened by what they just witnessed. I pray for President Trump and thank him that tried his best to right a sinking ship, but I emotionally left the Titanic long ago. I lost all confidence in mankind, and in myself, during the political war games in 1967. The church needs to remember that saving the ship is not as important as saving a soul. I pray that others (from steerage to first-class) will abandon any misplaced confidence and put their faith in the real Savior and the unsinkable Son of God. Peace! -id
