Don't hold your breath! It seems that starting in the 1980's, getting elected to office became a science of appealing to fringe groups instead of actually having a plan to govern.The debate about the role of political correctness in a vibrant society is an interesting question, but when do voters (and amateur overseas observers) get to hear about the other stuff?
There is no hope........ and more ask for spare change on the side of the road now than I've ever seen.Look at the current White House resident. His campaign was run on two words - hope and change. After 8 years, we have no hope and need a change.....
Not really. Consider the following quote from this article:God helps ones that help themselves....... right?
Also consider the internet authority - Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_helps_those_who_help_themselvesQuestion: "God helps those who help themselves - is it in the Bible?"
Answer: "God helps those who help themselves" is probably the most often quoted phrase that is not found in the Bible. This saying is usually attributed to Ben Franklin, quoted in Poor Richard's Almanac in 1757. In actuality, it originated from Algernon Sydney in 1698 in an article titled Discourses Concerning Government. Whatever the original source of this saying, the Bible teaches the opposite. God helps the helpless! Isaiah 25:4 declares, "For You have been a defense for the helpless, a defense for the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat..." Romans 5:6 tells us, "For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly."
I hope you find my comments as an opportunity to explore the idea that using such phrases without knowing their origin can lead to misuse of the concepts. This concept is man's construct... This is man saying one should not call on the Gods to do that which a man can do for himself.The sentiment appears in ancient Greek tragedies of which only fragments now remain. In his Philoctetes (c.409 BC), Sophocles wrote, "No good e'er comes of leisure purposeless; And heaven ne’er helps the men who will not act."[SUP][/SUP] And in the Hippolytus (428BC) of Euripides appears the speech, "Try first thyself, and after call in God; For to the worker God himself lends aid."[SUP][/SUP]
I never quoted the bible.Not really. Consider the following quote from this article:
"Current leadership are Incompetent people....... no probably stupid"
