Commentary & Analysis

My brother has been with as we drove from California to our new home in Oklahoma. We’ve had some very interesting and stimulating conversations. The result is this blog post. Thanks Tony!
Some of you who know me are already wondering why I would state that I love AOC. Let me explain. First off, I don’t agree with most of everything AOC puts forward. Her socialistic policies are doomed, like those who tried before her, to the dung heap of history. Socialism doesn’t work and never will.
Bully for The Donald who stated at SOTU that America would never be a socialistic country. However, as Ann Coulter recently stated, if we don’t stop the illegal immigration soon in another 5 years we will be a socialistic country!
So while I disagree with most of what AOC states I applaud the fact that shes’ shaking things up and is getting people who have remained on the sidelines, fired up! This is good. It’s the way our government was designed to work. She’s new, fresh, full of fire and even though I ultimately think she’s misguided, she’s ignited the political spectrum! Those of us who know our history know without a doubt that her socialistic worldview will never and I mean never work.
Here’s where I’m going with this. Our government was never designed to have an ongoing oligarchy of politicians i.e. a permanent political ruling class. This is essentially what we have in Washington DC which has resulted in nothing but partisan politics. We need term limits. This is the simple answer to the ongoing corruption, cronyism, partisan politics, and gridlock that has become the all too familiar song and dance routine in DC.
Term limits are the key and would allow more people like AOC to shake things up and get people talking and thinking. The current political ruling class was never intended by our founding fathers. Pelosi, McConnel, the Clinton’s, the Bush’s, the Supreme court justices which are appointed for life should all be given the heave-ho and term limits should be employed.
Fresh voices are a good thing. They stimulate us and make us think. They make us stand up and defend our position, our beliefs, our core values.
Another point would be the ongoing abortion controversy. As our guest blogger Jim Rankin stated are we fed up enough to actually do something? I would propose a national strike. Seriously, If the Christian church galvanized we could effect change and do it rapidly.
Remember Lech Walesa in Poland and his solidarity movement? He brought the communist government to its knees with a national strike. We the people have the power to effect change. Stand up! At the moment there is no leadership in the church on a national level who can bring us together. However, this could change if we pray that God would raise up someone to stand against the atrocity of what is the abortion holocaust. Push back. Stand up! PRAY!
