Two Parties.

My political stance is notated as "unassociated." I cannot say that I am Republican for I do not adhere to all that Republicanism is. I cannot say that I am Democrat for I do not adhere to all that Democratism is. I suppose by default that I would be Independent even though I am not essentially independent from any group, community, coalition, or partnership. Why must our nation's political system be constrained to a two party system? If one is not Republican or Democrat it is next to impossible to have the monetary system of support to be elected into a major office. Monetary support and campaigning is a whole different issue.

Totally with you on this one bro. There are so many reasons to doubt our political system, because half the time we truly have no idea what our country is doing in other parts of the world. I've looked into other political systems trying to find a better solution.

I've come to this:

There is none.


Socialism really grabbed my attention, but without believers in God it could never be possible.

Check out Acts 2:42-47.

Seems like a great idea, right? Everyone sharing with those in need. But will it ever be possible?

We can talk about how instead of the church having the reputation of being on one side or the other, the church needs to become a lighthouse, or whatever you want to call it, but thats a different topic.

Over all, it seems that Christians are being caught up in the crossfire.

I'll leave you with this blog:

I am in the same dilemna. I am able to vote now and had always planned on doing so, but recently I have a hesitancy to vote because I feel like I would be giving support of a person to hold office, and as far as I have researched all of them have a view on some issue that I don't think is very Christlike.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
