The November 2010 election for Congress[men] and Governors is scheduled to occur at that as-yet future time, as is the November 2012 election for President and other government officers.
As abstractions like businesses, companies, and corporations are neither deemed with sainthood for everlasting happiness with the blessed....nor cursed with eternal confinement in outer-darkness tormenting fire, so political parties (be they Democrat, Republican, Independent, Constitution, or whatever) and political action groups (e.g. ACLU, AUSCS, PAW, NOW, PP, NARAL, HRC, ACLJ, LC, MM, CWFA, RI, ADF, ADL) are also artificial entities neither destined for the bliss of Heaven nor the horrors of Hell.
Many people proudly, sensibly, and realistically state that they "vote for the person, not the party" - because often the party platform is worded in such a way as to both exclude specific polarizing semantics for big-tent underhandedness, and appear non-discriminately inclusive concerning completely opposite points of view on certain issues.
Does the Republican Party platform specifically by name target feminist-sexist, homopervert, and abortion-homicide-oriented associations and those comprising them? Does the Democrat Party platform use satanspeak weaselwords "reproductive freedom" and "woman's health" or "woman's choice" referring to non-reproductive extinction caused by murdering non-born human babies, the deviltalk term "science" when referring to apostate anti-young-earth-creationist heresy of evolutionary mythology, "art" in place of licentuously lascivious porn, and so on?
All politicians (from local city-hall candidates, county/state senators and representatives, and state governors on up to the top leaders of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of federal government) are evaluated by both orthodox Christians and anti-Christian barbarians as to their stances on social issues just mentioned....along with their attitudes and actions towards Israel related to Israeli existence, security, and well-being.....plus their view on availability of and promotion for get-into-greater-debt-which-probably-will-not-be-paid-back financial credit and other monetary matters like non-volatile-stock-market/private-investment-dependent chancey substitutes for established but Trust-Fund-pilfered vital Social Security and Medicare retirement benefits (initiated by the FDR and LBJ administration) similar to income and grants-provisionary entitlements.
Originally, Democrats were known for their preference of having government structure operating from the top down, while Republicans were known for their preference of having government structure operating from the bottom up. But now let's name some names.
In what ways was anti-Protestantism-in-schools(?) JFK a success or failure? Panama-Canal-giveaway(?) Jimmy Carter? Jerry-Falwell-supporting(?) Ronald Reagan? Atheistic-russian-immigrants-inviting(?) womanizer Bill Clinton? Gore-and-Kerry-defeating George W. Bush? In what ways is sneak-it-in-quick socialist-dictator(?) Obama a success or failure? In what ways is every governor or member of Congress (be they Senator or Representative) a success or failure?
Such determinations will take place, influenced strongly by generally-hostile-to-fundamentalist-Christianity(?) local and national network-news mediapersons and direct mail advertising leaflets, by each and every voter both in November of 2010 and November 2012.
In one sense, the leaders selected are only as good or as evil as the majority of voters who vote them in, which simple majority have and will insist that their aggregate will is made known and enforced.....despite deviously-extortionist thugs-obstructionist shenanigans of "Chicago-style" coercian and deceptively-dishonest ACORN-like(?) ballot-box mis-registrations and slight-of-hand manipulation.
Was George W. Bush a good President to come to the aid of Israel who had been attacked by SCUD missiles from Iraq(?) hitting both Haifa and Tel Aviv during The First Gulf War, and who were threatened by a non-cooperative and antisemitic Saddam who was harboring terrorist training camps in Iraq and threatening Arab neighbors to disrupt foreign oil supply to America? Was George W. Bush a good President to appoint Christianity-oriented males(?) to his cabinet, plus publicly declare his disdain against same-gender "marriages" and against "partial-birth" abortion?
But was George W. Bush also a chauvenistically-compromising President for appointing black shortened-skirted feminist Condi Rice and other women to the high position of authority they were in, like Reagan selecting Sandra Day O'Connor to the High Court?
Who was responsible for the Wall Street financial collapse exacerbating unemployment? The Clinton and Bush and Obama immentality of not regulating the Wall Street gamers and gamblers who were mis-manipulating fiat currency and IOU debt notes without gold-metal backing? The Clinton, Bush, Obama, Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and others who were responsible and to blame for stifling those who would prohibit credit-cards acquisition and sub-prime mortgages given to people who could not pay back costs for such -- all to get their votes in the next election?
Were jack-in-the-box-popup Obama-panderer Pelosi and her feminist-sexist-patsy ilk ultimately, directly, or indirectly at fault and to blame for letting Wall-Street oil bidders and others financial subversives boost gas pump prices to nearly $4.00/gallon after she got to be House Speaker (and 3rd in line to the Presidency) in the 2006 election?
Have Barack Hussein Obama and his democrat congresspersons (many of whom voted for Bush's Gulf-War-II incursion into Iraq!) stopped the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan? Will he pull out U.S. combat troops from Iraq altogether, or instead leave some there to organize and police the Iraqis?
Have he and the democrat voters who voted him in thwarted pro-abortion-choice feminist-irritant Speaker Pelosi? Has he given George W. Bush the credit Bush deserved and deserves for the far-reaching Roberts-and-Alito-appointing Biblically-concordant good that Bush did?
Has the racistly-selected/elected Obaminate and his Obamination supported Israeli settlements in God-given/Scripture-designated Israeli territory, and ever even visited Israel to hobnob with Netanyahu in Israel, or instead let Aminijihad boast with non-restrained arrogant impunity about arming Iranian military with nukes to "wipe Israel off the face of the map?" Has he shamefully bowed allegiance to the emporer of China, played foreign-aid footsie with Hamas and Hezbollah "palestinians" and plans to allow blasphemous islamic to build a mosque on Ground Zero of NYC?
Have he, his staff, and his supporters come right out against same-gender unions and feminist women in high positions of authority over men, or instead have he and his divisive trouble-causers grossly violated the inferred intentions of RSV's and NASV's Leviticus 20:13, Numbers chapter 30, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, Romans 1:26-27, First Corinthians 6:9-10, 11:1-16 and 14:33-38, First Timothy 2:5-15, and First Peter 3:7?
When have he, his democrat congresspersons, and his campaign activists stopped summertime immodesty by applying the principles of RSV's and NASV's Numbers 5:18, Second Samuel 13:18, Isaiah 3:17, 20:4, 47:1-3 and Jeremiah 2:25....and instead legislated to force all Americans to further impoverish themselves by mandatory health-insurance purchase while strapping those health insurers with ludicrous restrictions which will bankrupt them and drive them out of private-sector business?
The situation is complex, because RINO republicans (Republicans-In-Name-Only) have been as wicked as their democrat counterparts, and wimpishly did little when they were in power pertaining to some of the problems mentioned above.
Sean Hannity on FOX incessantly and relentless interviews loose-long-haired porn-hairstyled talking heads like Malkin, Coulter, etc on his nightly program, as does O'Reilly. Fox, like CNN and other cable channel programmers, are rife and reeking with such immodestly-hairstyled feminists semi-indecently imposing themselves as news anchors and reporters. The hideous presence of sexist feminists Sotomayor and Kagan polluting the U.S. Supreme Court is in part the doing of those and their diabolical deviates who followed the backfired lie of the Devil to put Sarah Palin in "to get the woman's vote" -- and apparently are yet poised to commit the same pro-feminist crimes and chauvenistic-quota atrocities again in future elections.
In bittersweet thankful contrast, GOP-basher Chris Matthews of MSNBC only interviews males and not mopheaded women, and is followed by boyish-hairstyled lesbian-twitwit Rachel Maddow. Judgmental-critic and anti-GOP ogre Keith Olbermann, hellbent on taking things out of proper context, rancid with verbal vile bigotry, comes on after Matthews, has shown sordid and disgusting clips of homo men and women hugging and kissing in lurid and rebellious pseudo-passion.
Comprehended even by those with not all their oars in the water, who are one can short of a sixpack, not the brightest bulb on the tree, and not the fastest snail in the slime....is the rather obvious need for prudently cutting both taxes and cutting government spending. The operative word here is: prudent, and sundry people with different lifestyles and orientations define that quite differently.
Most Americans mouth the mantra of "equality" regarding and concerning this or that. Assassinated anti-slavery/anti-liquor Old Abe one-sidedly noted that "all [males] are created equal" - probably with reference to:
Matthew 5:45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Luke 20:21 They asked Him, "Teacher, we know that You speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality, but truly teach the way of God.
Acts 10:34 And Peter opened his mouth and said: "Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality
Romans 2:11 For God shows no partiality.
Second Corinthians 8:14 but that as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their want, so that their abundance may supply your want, that there may be equality
Galatians 2:6 And from those who were reputed to be something (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality) --those, I say, who were of repute added nothing to me
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 6:9 Masters, do the same to them, and forbear threatening, knowing that He who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with Him.
Colossians 3:25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong [he] has done, and there is no partiality.
James 2:1 My brethren, show no partiality as you hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.
Hence, we all pay the same Fair-Tax-like, uniform, imbedded gasoline taxes for gasoline we pump at service stations. We all stop for red lights, and if a Muslim and a Jew and a Baptist and an atheist come to a four-way stopsign intersection, whoever gets there first goes forward first, without discrimination.
Yet, on the other hand, we do see stark differentiation as to innate and bestowed abilities and capacities:
First Samuel 15:28 And Samuel said to him, "The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours, who is better than you.
Second Samuel 17:14 And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, "The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel." For the LORD had ordained to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, so that the LORD might bring evil upon Absalom.
Esther 1:19 If it please the king, let a royal order go forth from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes so that it may not be altered, that Vashti is to come no more before King Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal position to another who is better than she.
Proverbs 16:32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Proverbs 19:22 What is desired in a man is loyalty, and a poor man is better than a liar.
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
Eccesiastes 7:8 Better is the end of a thing than its beginning; and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Eccesiastes 9:4 But he who is joined with all the living has hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
Eccesiastes 9:16 But I say that wisdom is better than might, though the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heeded.
Eccesiastes 9:18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good.
Song of Solomon 1:2 Oh that you would kiss me with the kisses of your mouth! For your love is better than wine....
Matthew 11:11 Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has risen no one greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
Luke 22:27 For which is the greater, one who sits at table, or one who serves? Is it not the one who sits at table? But I am among you as one who serves.
John 14:28 You heard me say to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I.
John 20:4 They both ran, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first;
Second Corinthians 11:23 Are they servants of Christ? I am a better one--I am talking like a madman--with far greater labors, far more imprisonments, with countless beatings, and often near death.
Second Peter 2:11 whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a reviling judgment upon them before the Lord.
First John 5:9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has borne witness to his Son.
Being that as it is (not might be), should proven-to-actually-be NIV/TEV/similar-pseudo-bible cultic religious heretics, feminists, homosexuals, abortionists, evolutionists, atheists (who probably also donate money and activism to groups and organizations of similar ideological deviancies) pay the same amount of taxes as fundamentalist KJV/RSV-Bible-believing-and-obeying Christians -- in the astronomically-complex process of government leaders determining bottom-line percentages for each individual person involving not only cutting taxes but also cutting or allocating government spending?
Such pinpointed, privacy-invasive-investigation(?), discrimination for or against each citizen, weighing their good points vs. their evil points for repeatedly calculating all sorts of final-amount tax exemptions and scholarship awards or not, would seem to be exceeding difficult for State officials to accurately and rightly do in strict and non-bribable adherence to the totality of the Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian Holy Bible, and those identified nefarious who government agents consider more taxable or disqualified would seek disruptive, expensive, and inconvenient judicial-lawsuit remedies against such selective official discriminators. Covert operations and lottery-type techniques could be an option for bureaucrats wanting to differentiate for resource apportionment, and both have and can be done to varying degrees and extents.
For example, I remember seeing a Disney movie in the past about a VW car called "Lovebug" which got its gas tank filled in a hurry by supportive asian owners of and at a gas station, whereas when the asians pumped gas into the culprit's vehicle, the flow speed of gas from the pump was adjusted by the contrary asians to be much slower, causing the VW to win the race. Just one pertinent example of a million others possible!
In conclusion, it is clear that no politician is perfect, nor the voters who vote for them. It can be detected however - and rightly so - who are acceptable on important-enough issues....contrasted with who are not acceptable on important-enough issues.....be they sexual-social morality issues, personal-integrity issues, monetary issues, or whatever.
