Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2017-071: Federalists, Whigs and ?

A recurring story in the news over the last several administrations has been the end of the ___ party.  They used to say it about the Republicans.  Now they are saying it about the Democrats.  It is generally partisan hype.  To be honest neither party is going anywhere soon.

But it will happen eventually.  The Federalists faded away.  The Whigs imploded.  Which of the current two will be the first to go?  My guess right now is the Democrats.  Why?  Not because I am a Republican and have a blind faith that we are on the right side of history.  It is because I look into the wings and ask, “Who would replace them?”

Disgruntled, grass roots Republicans have no place to go.  The Libertarians are all over the place and can’t even seem to work together.  The other parties tend to be fringe groups.  The elites don’t represent me but there are enough in the organization for me to stick with it.

On the other hand, the groundwork is already in place for the Democrats to morph into a socialist or communist organization.  You look at the way in which they are pressing further and further left.  The elites that run that party are looking to marginalize the masses while they retain all the power in their hands.  They want to control all means of wealth and remove all voices of dissent.  They have the press on board and education has drunk the kool aide.  The tactics you see are the same that totalitarians have used all around the world.  You see the brown shirts.  You see the Big Lie.  You see Kangaroo courts.  You see attempts to disarm the population.  You see loyalty to the party instead of the nation.  You see the derision of the rule of law. 

Will they succeed this time?  They have tried before through organized labor.  This time it is a blatant grab for the reigns of government.  Will we have a Whittaker Chambers this time?  Will we have a politician like Richard Nixon step forward?  Will the American people wake up?

I invite you to stay tuned.  I am not sure you have any choice.
