Observing the political process in this nation is very interesting to me. First, there is no other nation in the earth or the history of the world that would allow the various opinions espoused by people from different backgrounds, ethnicity, cultures and experiences. Secondly, though, the discourse is uncivil at times, no one is ending up in a back alley or coming up missing because of dissenting views. The third reason that I find the political process interesting is the diversity of Christian opinion that permeates the political landscape. I've wondered how someone reading the bible can come to different conclusions about who to support and vote for in a political campaign. This nation is in the most treacherous place in it's history economically and though we are in dire straits, there is a solution. That solution is found in Matthew 6:33..."seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you." The "things" referred to are all natural/physical things that require finances to obtain. Though there are many hard decisions to make and treacherous steps to take to get out of this crisis, the first action is to cry out to the All-Knowing, All-Wise God of creation.
