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 2020-301: Should-a-Beens: Prognostication

What lies in the future?  Obviously that is a dumb question if you expect an accurate answer, but it is a consideration we need to keep making.

I think that the goals of President Trump will be the same, win or lose.  I think he will continue to work to drain the swamp.  His methods and priorities will be different depending on the outcome of the election but he has set himself to make America great again and I don’t see him quitting.  There is a very real sense in which he has the tiger by the tail and can’t let go, even if he wants to.  He has been learning a lot in the last four years about the enemies of the Republic and their lack of moral limitations.  He has seen the abuse of the legal system in the persecution of Michael Flynn.  He has watched as the swamp has used every agency of the United States government to bring him down when he was supposed to be the head of those agencies.  I think he is a different person than he was four years ago.

The people who have attacked him, his family and his country need to begin living in fear.  He has a lot going for him.  

    His own commitment to winning
    His deep love for the United States of America
    80 million voters who were given hope again
    The Constitution of the United States
    In my opinion, God Almighty

I read an article that got my mind going this way.  I went looking for it and could not find it again so I can’t give them credit,  but it started with the premise that Donald Trump will not be retiring to a quiet life in the countryside.  It suggested that if he loses, he would announce for 2024 but not really run.  Being a candidate opens up a lot of options for him in the coming years and would put him in the place to continue transforming the Republican party into something besides Rinos and swamp critters.  

Of course it would be better to let him continue the work he has started and become a supporter after he is term limited out.  I am still hoping for that option.  If I don’t get it, then we will have to go with plan B.

The option of surrender is not acceptable.
