A Sad Example...

Of a confused American 31 yr old:

“You guys might think I’m kinda crazy, but, like, what America really needs is another Hitler.”  The couple that this man was talking to, and who were slightly younger than he, nodded their heads, but didn’t say anything.

 “I mean, Hitler got things done…he had a goal and actually tried to get it done...none of our presidents are doing anything.  They’re like…no good.  Obama, yeah, he’s ok, but he isn’t doing as much as he should. …I used to be a republican, but ugh, some of the things they’re doing??  I don’t agree with them.  ….Oh I know, like Palin.  But I would vote for Palin ‘cause she’s kinda hot for a president. …And you’d just vote for her ‘cause she’s a girl wouldn’t you?!” 

This was seconds after his conversation about the new features for video games that he loves and how he feels like he’s really managing his money well since he gets some games for free on the Internet, and puts the money that he would have spent on games every week into the lottery machines. 
As Obi-Wan Kenobi once stated in Star Wars...."You need to go home and re-think your life."   

Does he have a clue who Hitler was?  I doubt it, because how could anyone want a president similar to the man who wanted to rule the earth (full of only the most evolved race of course) and who murdered 6 million Jews in an effort to accomplish this?  

 I hope that this 31-year-old’s problem was truly pure ignorance. 

Voting women into office, especially just because of their looks, is going to destroy this country.  What happened to “Always vote upon principle, though you may vote alone”… John Q. Adams.   The only place you’re going to find the correct “principles” for choosing a president is in the Bible.  It gave pretty clear guidelines about what our leaders are supposed to look like.  

We’ve got a lot of work to do, if there are as many people in America like this 31 year-old as I think there are.
People like him just don’t know.  They don’t know their history, and they don’t really know anything of importance.  Very sadly, all these young men and women are interested in is pleasing themselves through entertainment.  They haven’t learned to think.  They don’t think about the future, or the consequences.  Often times it’s because they’ve never had to suffer any.  These are the people that the Socialists/Communists use.  Some liberal once referred to them them as "Useful Idiots."  They're used to having things handed to them, and they'll vote themselves money any chance they get.  They feel entitled. 

Most of all, what they need is Christ.  Things just don't make sense without Him.  So, right now, my job is simply to be alert, faithful, prayerful, and prepared to give an account for the hope that is in me.  I got to thinking about what I would say if someone like that man were to talk about those kinds of things to me.  I know myself too well....I probably would just give them a shocked expression and say something like "What?" 
I'm not good at arguing a point, ( I haven't had a lot of practice :-)  and to be honest, I wouldn't even know where to start!  It's hard to know what would make sense to them.   I haven't really come up with any ideas yet, but I'm working on it :-)
