The Old Fool enjoyed this venture into political history. He is testing whether or not we may be honest and still respected and loved.
The Old Fool has admired such democratic presidents as Roosevelt, Truman, Carter, Kennedy, Clinton and Obama. He also admired Dwight D. Eisenhourer who was a Republican president. The Old Fool did not support their wars. He is disturbed by the way these men resisted evil with evil. It was their domestic policies that attracted him to the Democratic Party.
Now he ponders about today and thinks beyond. The Old Fool believes that evil should be resisted in the Jesus way. He believes that enemies can be turned into friends. At this very time the world should begin to bless, pray for, and do good to the victims of their victories.
It is true that The Old Fool expects to cast his vote for a second term for President Obama. However, if it were possible he would like to be a member of the Green Party and vote for its candidates. If the Green Party is new to you, here is a link which should take you to a video of an interview by Bill Moyers with candidates Jane Stein, for president, and Cheri honkalla, for vice president.
Other options are promoted by earnest followers of Jesus. One option is to gather with fellow Christians of various political persuasions to share in a communion service. They do this to declare that their first allegiance is to Jesus. Others are urging fellow believers to boycott the election as a protest of the partisanship in our political system.
