in response to reader comment: Trump seems to be the Obama 2.0

Stefan,

Thank you for not harping on about Fascists and Communists, like so many here. People who use these terms ..., are insulting half the Republican party and a good quarter of the American people. We don't deserve this. Trump supporters generally pay taxes, drive courteously, greet one another on the street and are fair dealers in business. We aren't some sort of freaks, just arrived from another planet. We're tired of politically-correct nincompoops running the country, lying to us, and a number of other things. For this ... others go around calling us Fascists. It isn't fair; and again, thank you for not chiming in with the chorus.

I am as concerned as anyone, that I vote for the best candidate at election time. This is what I usually do; and as often as not, my candidate doesn't win. Afterward, no matter who wins, I go about my business and try to be civil to people. My desire for everyone, is that they be like me in these things and do their best not to injure their neighbors, their party and their country.

Jews and Christians alike are taught not to get all caught up in gentile politics. God called the Jews a people apart, meant for His service and not meant to be like the other people of the world. Christians are taught that our citizenship is not in this world, but in heaven. We're also taught, in Zechariah 14, that all the nations of the world -- including Switzerland and the US -- will one day attack Israel together; and the Christian Book of Revelation tells us that the powers of this world (including the US) are doomed to destruction. With that being the case, you might understand why I choose not to get too tied up with all the commotion the mainstream press has been stirring up lately about the candidates -- throwing particular insult, it seems against my own favorite candidate.

It's seven months until election time. If you find it within you, please pray for us all.

Shalom shalom :-)
