Apparently some members of the Democrat party are feeling the heat of their bad decisions, and taking it out on anybody that questions what they view as divine wisdom. In the video below, one of the these self anointed wise men, Bob Etheridge (Democrat – North Carolina) of the U.S. Congress, physically attacks a college student for simply asking him a question. In every state in the union, this action by Mr. Etheridge (Democrat – North Carolina) would be an act of assault. Of course the laws don’t apply to liberals in the government the way they apply to normal citizens who, apparently, have no rights to ask a simple question of a Congressman (that supposedly works “We the People…”).
One of many excellent Bible passages that applies to this situation (bad Congressman Bob Etheridge) is Proverbs 16:18, which deals with issues of pride and haughtiness:
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
(Proverbs 16:18, KJV)
Mr. Etheridge is regarded as one of the most arrogant and haughty members of the U.S. Congress. It is time to do a little House Cleaning this November and send this man and his worthless ideas from the Marxist/Socialist party packing. Given his recent behavior, it appears that a better place for Mr. Etheridge would be jail rather than the U.S. House of Representatives. Remember the college student was politely asking a question, and was subjected to the typical response of the party in power: “Who are YOU to question what I do?” The answer of course is that the college student was a member of the electorate, part of “We the People”.
This is the same behavior that has also been displayed more than a few times by Mr. Obama… A recent story published in the New York Times, famous for its ultra-liberal (pro-Marxist) views of the world, suggested that members of the Democrat party are now deliberately avoiding town halls and other means of speaking to citizens, to avoid heated questions and debate about their poor performance:
If the time-honored tradition of the political meeting is not quite dead, it seems to be teetering closer to extinction. Of the 255 Democrats who make up the majority in the House, only a handful held town-hall-style forums as legislators spent last week at home in their districts.
It was no scheduling accident.
With images of overheated, finger-waving crowds still seared into their minds from the discontent of last August, many Democrats heeded the advice of party leaders and tried to avoid unscripted question-and-answer sessions. The recommendations were clear: hold events in controlled settings â a bank or credit union, for example â or tour local businesses or participate in community service projects.
It is time to send a message to the U.S. Congress in general, and Mr. Etheridge in particular, that our elected representatives are there to serve us, not to be served. When elected representatives like Mr. Etheridge no longer represent the will of the people, and treat the voting populace with outright arrogance and hostility, it is time to vote them out of office!
Why do these political issues matter to Christians? Because the current party in power has been destroying the very freedoms and economy that made our nation great, and that gave us an environment where Christianity can flourish.
