It’s All in God’s Hands

There's the "hype" that politician "a" or "b" can make it all better. None of it's true.
politicians are the same

Elections are just a distraction, G-d is in control — think about it very seriously.  So many times the pundits are wrong.  All of us see the same “facts” and make the wrong predictions.

Anyone of any religion with a minimum of faith, knows that there are things totally out of our control.

Elections are a distraction, sort of like the chest breathing and hand/feet contractions I remember learning about in reading a Lamaze childbirth book.  As the mother of five, all “natural” births, I can attest to the fact that by concentrating on a different part of the body, not the area of the strongly and painfully contracting uterus, I felt better and in control.

Democracy, elections, politics all distract us from what is really happening.  The story of mankind is thousands of years old, especially for those of us who follow the Bible.  In the Bible we also read of democracy, elections, politics and lots of sinning.  There was never a time in history when all people were righteous and good.  Even in Jewish history, such a condition lasted only seconds, when the entire people pledged obedience to G-d at Mount Sinai.  Soon after, they were sinning again.

It’s the nature of man to abuse free will.  Life is a moral struggle.

There’s the “hype” that politician “a” or “b” can make it all better.  None of it’s true.  Each of us must do our best to overcome our weaknesses and obey G-d.  All the politics and elections are toys/tools G-d has given us to learn how.
