Trusting Politicians

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 29, 2019

         DO YOU PAY ATTENTION TO POLITICIANS? DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THEY TELL YOU? HAVE YOU LISTENED TO WHAT POLITICIANS HAVE SAID IN THE PAST? HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS UNIQUE TO THE TIMES VERY LITTLE HAS CHANGED? NOR HAVE THE EXPECTATIONS OF VOTERS CHANGED.

         POLITICIANS PROMISE THE MOON BUT HAVE DIFFICULTY DELIVERING MUCH ON EARTH. VOTERS PROJECT A KIND OF MESSIANIC POWER ON THEM ONLY TO BE DISAPPOINTED WHEN THEY CAN’T PERFORM MIRACLES.

         WHO OR WHAT CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER? ONLY YOU CAN BY THE CHOICES YOU MAKE. THESE INCLUDE A GOOD EDUCATION, INCREASINGLY NOT A PART OF EXPENSIVE UNIVERSITIES. MARRYING THE RIGHT PERSON; RESPONSIBLE USE OF MONEY AND THE PURCHASE OF THINGS YOU ONLY NEED. WANTS CAN COME LATER. INVESTING FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE AND RETIREMENT WITHOUT RELYING ON GOVERNMENT OR OTHERS. STAYING HEALTHY. ALL OF THESE AND MORE CONTRIBUTE TO A SUCCESSFUL LIFE.

         SO WHY DO WE PUT SO MUCH FAITH IN POLITICINS? THEY ARE FALSE GODS AND AS PAUL WRITES IN ROMANS: “GOD HAD BUILT FUTILITY INTO HIS CREATION IN HOPE THE CREATION WILL TURN TO HIM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
