The Word

Genesis 3.8 – 9

“And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and

Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God

amongst the trees of the garden.

“And the LORD God called unto Adam and said unto him, ‘Where art thou?’”

“…The outcasts from the moving-picture world are the intelligent people.

They have no time for the movies because

the movies generally have no time for intelligent people.”

On the other hand, what if your vote counts? Some made up their minds weeks ago and are PUSHING “x.” They see him as “Christian” failing to see cultish (or wife’s CFR) connections. (Interesting, we claim Washington was “Christian” ignoring his Free Mason apron.) They see “x” as an “ONLY hope” or “the lesser of two evils.” The following (not original) is weighty “A vote for the lesser of two evils, is still a vote for evil.” The idea “If you don’t vote, don’t complain” has a flip-side. If you vote in “x” and your “Christian” becomes WDC as usual, or worse, you will be the one unable to complain.

Sea

SEA [1]

The sea turns, and it churns

And advances toward shore,

Pushing, and rolling, then dancing away,

As a puppy that’s yelpy

And frisks toward the door,

Then toward you, again,

In its moments of play.

– eab, Mar. ‘78

Does YOUR vote count?

In conference balloting? Yes. In primaries? Maybe. In a national election? Well – – – it’s debatable. USSR had “elections,” party people “won” time after time. Among my friends there may be some who do not see one man qualified for president. Yet friend’s posts insist, “If you don’t vote, don’t complain.”

(I’m aware some won’t like today’s posts.) I’ve participated in voting; 1st presidential ballot Goldwater, 2nd Wallace, 3rd Nixon but uncertain souls shouldn’t be pressured. It’s possible no one’s vote counts – the candidate may be already “selected.” God have mercy on America.
