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 2021-146: Election 2022: Vote for Pumice

I have rarely been elected to anything.  Usually when I end up in leadership it is because the situation is so hopeless or pointless that no one else will do it.  Once in, I think I do a good job.  In fact I had one liberal teacher share her amazement that a conservative could be so good at including all the kids in what we were doing.  It didn’t fit her mush-head paradigm.  

There are a lot of positions I take on issues that would keep me from getting elected to any office today.  These are in the order they occurred to me.

Defund education at all levels.
Start to develop limitations on whom could vote.
Limit the federal government spending only to things specifically mentioned in the Constitution.
Constitutional carry
Expand the death penalty and apply it.  Make allowance for reasonable appeals but certain crimes such as rape and child molestation should result in cleaning up the gene pool.
Outlaw abortion as a form of birth control.
Define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Define man and woman as a biological fact declared by your genes.
Impeach judges who legislate from the bench.
Freeze government spending by dollar amount and have no provision for inflation.
Repeal the Sixteenth Amendment (Income Tax).
Make laws passed by congress apply to congress.
Sunset all government regulations.
Require legislation to be read by congress.
Make amendments illegal that did not directly apply to the legislation.
Limit legislation to one topic.
Shut down most government agencies such as the Department of Education, Housing, EPA, and Transportation.  I am open to doing away with most of the rest.
Honor current commitments in Social Security but make it optional going forward.
Restructure Social Security so that the government pays back borrowed funds and the money is invested responsibly.  
Do away with the entire concept of hate crimes.

I am sure that I could keep meddling, but you get the idea.  At times I am not sure I would even vote for myself.  In the absence of my candidacy I would recommend that these be adopted as the platform of the Republican Party.  

No, I don’t want to buy a nice bridge from you.

    1. That just doubled my vote count.

      Grace and peace

  2. At one time, a man could have gotten elected on those beliefs. Today, even the "conservatives" are half communist.

  3. Wow, Pumice! You definitely have my vote!! Next can we move on to fixing some State Governments please?

    1. That makes three. The list could also be applied locally, in fact, locally might be more important than nationally.

      Grace and peace
