CHARACTER DOES NOT MATTER IN OUR LEADERS?

Friday, May 02, 2008

WE HAVE BEGUN THE SLIPPERY SLOPE TOWARD DECADENCE



Since the time of the Presidency of John Adams, the second President of the new America, and the first vice- President under the administration of George Washington. We have evolved in the succeeding 232 years to the point where too many people believe character and belief in religious principles mean nothing.
In John Adams days he said: “The people have a right, an indisputable, inalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge — I mean of the character and conduct of their rulers.”
He believed that knowledge of moral principles and a veneration and respect for the religion of the people who profess and call themselves Christians was among the best recommendations for public service. source: Wikapedia
Fast forward to 2008 and you have two Democrats running for President who apparently don’t hold to one of the fundamental principals of leadership. Be truthful, say what you mean and mean what you say.
Hillary Clinton has been exposed for lying about her experiences and dealings so many times that I will not bother to write about her.
But Obama is a different story. This man of “Change” is either the worst of liars or the epitome of a man without integrity, as the Obama/Wright drama has shown us. He said recently in a speech in North Carolina, that “the Reverend Wright issue is a distraction”. Time magazine even had a columnist write that “character is a distraction”!
Obama either believes what his Pastor of twenty years, and spiritual mentor, has professed, and is lying when he says he never heard or believed what Rev. Wright said about God D##N America and the KKK of America. Or he is a man who shows lack of integrity by turning his back on the man who married him and his wife, baptised his children and was recipient of many Obama cash donations. By ‘dumping his mentor of 20 years for political expediency, if he really believes what Wright professes. Obama has shown a lack of integrity necessary to sit in the Oval Office with the “Red Button”.!
After eight years of scandals and lies of the Clinton Administration, I believe Americans have become accustomed to the fact that our leaders lie. This is furthered by the media’s fixation for the past nine years of the alleged lies of President Bush.
WE have let our attention slide away from the character of our leaders to a position of ” what can he/she do for me”. The knowledge that our elected representatives are liars, but he/she is our liar and, “brings home the bacon”has become the prime motivator in elections it appears.

  1. It is much easier to be an infallibilist than acepting the Spiritual infallibilty of God.We live in an age of secular humanism where material things become the gods of ancient paganism because it is easier to explain naturalism than supernaturalism which takes faith and reason which most prideful men and women lack.Their pretentious airs are sufficient for the dumbed down masses to believe these pseudointelletual mortal humans who can’t accept that which is of the spiritual world through self satisfaction of their earthly selfishnees.A short life of arrogant thinking with an eternity of nothingness is facing these foolish non thinkers after death.What wretchedness these snobbish lovers of self have produced by their own arrogance and denial of the truth.
