The most recent poll indicates that at least 9 out of 10 people on the planet do not support God, and under no circumstances would they vote for Him.
Genesis 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors.
Second Kings 19:31 for out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD will do this.
Ezra 9:8 But now for a brief moment favor has been shown by the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant, and to give us a secure hold within His holy place, that our God may brighten our eyes and grant us a little reviving in our bondage.
Ezra 9:13 And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, seeing that You, our God, have punished us less than our iniquities deserved and have given us such a remnant as this,
Ezra 9:15 Oh LORD the God of Israel, You are just, for we are left a remnant that has escaped, as at this day. Hey, we are before You in our guilt, for none can stand before You because of this."
Isaiah 10:21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
Isaiah 10:22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.
Isaiah 37:32 for out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.
Jeremiah 50:20 In those days and in that time, says the LORD, iniquity shall be sought in Israel, and there shall be none; and sin in Judah, and none shall be found; for I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant.
Romans 9:27 And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved. . ."
Romans 11:5 So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.
God's only other major competitor on The Ballot, of course, is Satan - and most individuals would cautiously (though perhaps somewhat reluctantly) campaign for The Devil instead of the Lord.
The demonic SuperPacs are in full throttle as of this writing, and the secular network media mindlessly sucks it up and does their damndest to puff scurrilous and significantly-misleading deception.
As stated, only about 10% of all persons on Earth would give their increasing and then ultimate allegiance to the Creator on Election Day - whether the issues discussed are sexual, economic, racial, cultural, or occupational.
The general feeling among the 90% is that God's [Biblical] speech and writings are much too insensitive and judgmental, divisively intolerant, phomohobic, excessive, superfluous, and radically extremist - if taken and applied literally. Most indicate that the Lord is trying to establish some kind of a "depraved" and "tyrannical" theocracy in place of "freedom" and "liberty" which the country was [presumed to be] founded upon.
Among the 90% in "educational" and "scientific" specialties, the Lord's Scripture seems not merely "confusing" and "contradictory," but "embarrassing," "childish" and "simplistic" - almost "laughably naiive" concerning what most of them consider the "myth" and "legend" of the Genesis story . . . completely disregarding the "proven" "scientific" "facts" of Big-Bang star and planets formation, and evolution.
Isaiah 32:6 For the fool speaks folly, and his mind plots iniquity: to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.
First Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
First Corinthians 1:21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
First Corinthians 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
First Corinthians 2:14 The non-spiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
First Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their craftiness . . ."
Second Timothy 3:9 . . . but they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.
Second Peter 2:18 For, uttering loud boasts of folly, they entice with licentious passions of the flesh men who have barely escaped from those who live in error.
To those "expert" in manipulating prices for greed by inflation (both for goods and services), money laundering, embezzling, theft, and robbery, the Lord's demand for hard work, honest numbers crunching, and dutifully-decent employment appears quite inane and lacking, especially where welfare-cheating, lazy freeloading, and gambling for riches is the name of the game.
Second Peter 2:9 . . . then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,
10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and wilful, they are not afraid to revile the glorious ones,
11 whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a reviling judgment upon them before the Lord.
12 But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and killed, reviling in matters of which they are ignorant, will be destroyed in the same destruction with them,
13 suffering wrong for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their dissipation, carousing with you.
14 They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children!
15 Rejecting the right way they have gone astray; they have followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing,
16 but was rebuked for his own transgression; a dumb donkey spoke with human voice and restrained the prophet's madness.
17 These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm; for them the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved.
18 For, uttering loud boasts of folly, they entice with licentious passions of the flesh men who have barely escaped from those who live in error.
19 They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption; for whatever overcomes a man, to that he is enslaved.
20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overpowered, the last state has become worse for them than the first.
21 For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.
22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb: "The dog turns back to his own vomit, and the sow is washed only to wallow in the mire."
The rebellious and pro-homogay, with rings in their left earlobes, frequently defaced with tattoos, even go so far as to revile, ridicule, and violently blaspheme those who refrain from such ugly and bullyboy-effeminate asinine exhibitionism.
Leviticus 19:28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
Jude 1:16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud-mouthed boasters, flattering people to gain advantage.
Those given in to uttering vulgar expletives in boastful and belligerent pride see no sense in Biblical directives for humble and considerate, thoughtful and patient, pure and edifying speech - without condemnatory remarks of hateful maliciousness, nitpicky legalism, and impious arrogance.
All the 90% who definitely would refuse to vote for God have and continue to make known their defiance by complaining about His weather:
Revelation 9:20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot either see or hear or walk;
Revelation 16:9 men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.
Revelation 16:11 and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores, and did not repent of their deeds. . . . and becoming immodestly misdressed with loose long hair, sleeveless shirts and shorted skirts or shorts, plus wearing no socks underneath their sandals during warmer weather - for all sorts of senseless irrationalizations like "tanning," "heat exhaustion" (in and out of air conditioning), "seasonal" "style" and "fashion," and to avoid being chided and criticized for looking like completely-dressed "holier-than-thou" church saints, in general public view during late spring, summer, and early autumn.
Jeremiah 29:23 because they have committed folly in Israel, they have committed adultery with their neighbors' wives, and they have spoken in my name lying words which I did not command them. I am the one who knows, and I am witness, says the LORD.'"
John 12:43 . . . for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
It seems that a higher number of women compared to men of the 90% are more irratically and non-predictably opposed to God's agenda, especially in the areas of domestic subordination and rejection of sexist feminism. Among glamor and porn models, escorts and masseuses, the general consensus is substantially opposed to the Sixth of the Ten Commandments, and among homosexual-activist lesbians, the percentage is even greater.
First Timothy 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
Rather than going to church on Sunday mornings, they instead shop at mall garage sales and farmer's markets, play golf, or simply sleep in after a night of carousing with liquor and backbiting friends trying to take them for all they're worth.
Romans 13:13 . . . let us conduct ourselves becomingly as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.
Ephesians 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit
Titus 3:3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by men and hating one another . . .
Hebrews 10:25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
No, on Election Day, it does not appear that God is going to get a majority of votes so as to stay in office, although He has done His reliable best to try to regulate and direct His obstinate and wayward humans creatures from immersing themselves in pollution of all types . . . trying to help them not borrow themselves into debt and foreclosure and bankruptcy . . . . attempting to keep them from disease and injury, expensive and hostility-causing international wars -- but the immoral majority have and continue to insist on pursuing their insane drive to extinction by doping themselves up and getting drunk with disabling narcotics, by self-abusively smoking themselves into lung cancer, by not discriminating against non-reproductive homosexuality and same-gender unions, by not opposing extinction-headed abortion homicide, but instead adhering to non-reproductive extinction-destined immodesty and impotency-exacerbating porn while their non-predictable harlots and temporary partners have sterilized themselves with contraceptives and condoms.
The primary will be in November of 2012, but the final Election is scheduled to take place way beyond that.
So, who will win, and who will lose?
Second Peter 1:2 May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence,
4 by which He has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.
5 For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,
6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with persistence, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
8 For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 For whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will never fall;
11 so there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Although corporate "buy-burn-&-bury" (as the pro-[anti-company-unions], rob-the-entrepreneurial-rich-and-give-to-the-lazy-druggies-welfarite-poor, subversive left has slandered him) Romney is (as of 26 Jan 2012) taking the brunt of media exposure of his purported Cayman-Islands offshore investments, it [hypocritically] was the Democrat-controlled Senate who stopped legislation designed to prevent such offshore-income blind-trust, diversions.
Of the as-of-this-writing four remaining GOP candidates (one governor, two representatives, one senator) competing for becoming President, it behooves both myself and the reader to discern who of the four has never been divorced; who is the least directly accusatory and caustic concerning specific-name personal attacks against the other GOP presidential candidates; who of the four is the most diplomatic (especially concerning adversarial media interrogators); who of the four looks at the other candidates with dignified patient respect and can gracefully take criticism best; who of the four, during one of the debates, reminded us that "this country was founded upon Judeo-Christian values" [obviously NOT said by Barack Hussein Obama!]; and who of the four has indicated that he might place inferior-gender [women] in high governmental positions of authority if elected President in 2012.
Who of the four candidates has indicated that he would fire all Obama's czars on Day One of their presidential term in 2013? Who of the four candidates has promised that he would issue an Executive Order on Day One of their presidential term in 2012 giving all States waivers against the non-affordable and so-called "Affordable Care Act" (i.e. Obamascare)? Who of the four candidates takes the strongest stance against illegal immigration?
Both Rand Paul and Sean Hannity have voiced complaints about TSA pat-downs in airports. If enough people boycott the airlines within those airports, perhaps then-deprived airline execs (especially Fed Ex, UPS, and the USPS ones) would sue TSA for prompt-remedy-redress correction. However, perhaps some people actually like TSA's supposedly-random-but-targeted public-fondling strip-shows and officially-affectionate massage-like pat-down pampering. Barack and Michelle might....let alone spunky and malicious non-mopheaded Rachel Maddow and quasi-subversive-cohort divisive TV-and-radio-talk-show maligners Schultz, Steffie Miller, O'Donnell, Malloy, Hartmann, etc. - not to mention Schumer, Levin, Pelosi, and their ilk.
A Flat Tax without exemptions and deductions would hurt the very poor the most, the middle class next, and the rules-making rich the least.
Neither Newt nor Barack nor even Mitt "create jobs." Instead, hopefully-restrictions-free potential employers themselves gamble whether or not to offer employment to certain adequately-qualified unemployed who might choose to work for them - NOT out of political partisanship or mandatory legislation, but simply for self-preservation to survive, no matter who is in charge of government.
Labor unions, in general, are adversarial competitors against either private companies or government agencies - inciting anti-company/agency disloyalty among workers. When against companies, unions are deplorable, but when against government agencies (e.g. the police, firemen, USPS letter carriers, air traffic controllers, public-school teachers, etc.) they are intolerable.
Workers themselves can pick and choose what company is the most stable, is one of the largest because that company treats their employees right, has the best working conditions and wages, health plans, retirement packages, etc. If company management becomes harsh, unreasonable, relocates internationally, or whatever, workers can merely work for a competing company.
Sunrise and sunset, maintenance of the planet's anti-meteorite-protective atmosphere, consistent gravity, celestial-orbits equilibrium of planets and stars, the molten core, etc. do NOT depend upon Barack Hussein Obama nor any of his Senate democrats, activists, advertisers, talk-show brainwashers, and/or contributors.
Which translation of Revelation 21:1 is correct:
(a) "....the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more."
(b) "....the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more, and there never again was another sea." ?
Why, according to the Old-Testament historical record of Genesis, did Abraham bargain with God about saving the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah?
Some might think that that request intervention was simply kind of a cute thing to do, while others might consider it grossly unnecessary and a lamentable waste of time, while still others might deem it dangerously injust to word the petitions in such a way that the vast majority of both cities known for their worldwide-pollutive assemblage of impenitent homosodomites therein would escape well-deserved incineration?
Did Abraham have the intention of desiring extended grace and opportunity for an presumed and eventual Ninevah-like Jonah-instigated mass repentance? Did Abe simply want Lot to avoid the inconvenience of possessions-and-property relocation? Did the patriarchal polygamist want to make sure that anyone else not known to or related to Lot would also get out before the terrifying meteoritic-like rain of fire and brimstone annihilated all those within those two twin cities?
Mere-economics-professor and laissez-faire non-commander-in-chief-type Ron Paul is weak concerning continuing perpetuating Social Security and Medicare, plus made important distinctions between military spending and defense spending and between the Taliban (who Paul claims simply want foreigners off their territory) and Al Qaeda (who Paul asserts wants to come over to America and kill us).
Mitt Romney, desiring to stop short of wasteful and forcefully-intrusive military incursions into foreign countries instead of using "softer" means for influence, considered elaboration regarding his Bain Capital history rather nitpicky harassment , inferring that he would publicize his tax returns in April (which he legally will), and was never asked about his duress-based You-Tube-documented declared support of non-discrimination for homogays, plus sidetracked further questioning and discussion about his again-under-duress You-Tube-documented "choice"-about-abortion stance by diverting off to a lament against supposedly non-accountable superpacs. It is difficult to predict if a non-discrimination-against-homogays and woman's-right-to-"choose" flipflopper will use that tricky-weaselworded flipfloppiness as a smokescreen and subtle diversion to actually come down eventually against the side of homogays and abortionists, giving enough public-pressure incentive.
Both accusatory-hawk Rick Santorum (who asserts he will not discriminate against homogays), and many-pussies-perused-baby-doctor Ron Paul were strong on advocating that American citizens should be able to go to federal court for redress against accusations of being treasonously associated with Al Qaeda and similar anti-United-States-government groups. Mitt Romney, however, wanted the opposite, against those clearly-indicated allegiance to America's foreign enemies.
No one seemed to acknowledge Newt Gingrich's plan to fund optional Social Security IRAs for young workers by cutting out 185 wasteful low-income-related government agencies.
Mitt Romney, diplomatically forthright and firm against trouble-causing "palestinians" who refuse to accept the existence of Israel, seemed to support assassinating suspected proven-to-be-terrorists without trial (such as bin Laden who was murdered by Navy SEALS on orders from Obama but which SEALS themselves were [conveniently?] executed by a military helicopter crash), whereas Ron Paul mentioned that both Saddam Hussein and Adolf Eichmann had lawful trials before being executed.
Both Ron Paul and Rick Perry said that foreign aid to Syria should be zero.
Rick Santorum rationalized his support of gun-ownership restrictions by claimed support from "pro-gun" groups and the NRA.
Newt Gingrich was heavy on substituting food stamps and excessive continuation of unemployment-check benefits, with instead job training and placement.
Rick Perry wanted a proposed across-the-board Flat-Tax rate to be 20% after deductions, while Newt Gingrich wants it 15% after deductions, and Mitt Romney wants it eased into 25% from the 35% he claims the IRS rate now is.
All of us, whether governed or who govern others, are a "mixed bag" of good and evil, strengths and weaknesses. Those who are basically good (as the LORD defines the term according to Holy Writ) are on Christ's side, and those who are basically evil are against God and on Satan's side (whether that demonic allegiance is manifested by claimed support for atheism, homogays, abortion "choice," evolution [mythology], porno "art," "palestinians," anti-company unions, class-warfare socialism, sexist feminism, freedom and liberty to spitefully/maliciously revile and be irresponsible, and so forth).
Those on God's side who exhibit occasional weakness and failures do so because of duressed coercion, suppression, enticement, and deprivation imposed by wicked ones around them, and those on Satan's side who exhibit occasional strengths and successes [keeping in mind that deteriorating America has not yet completely collapsed] do so because of the godly influence of those around them who essentially and usually are guided by the Word of God and their loving (as opposed to hateful) adherence to it, its inspired human authors, and its Author-in-Chief.
