This is Pastor Tim’s article which appeared in the Evening Leader on Tuesday, Oct 2, 2023
I am sitting here at my desk, and I am just thinking that we are still over 13 months away from the presidential election, and I am already growing tired of it. The reason I am tired of it is because I feel like I already know what is going to happen, and I don’t like it. It’s like a movie where you figure out the plot twist too early, and it ruins the movie. That is how I feel about this upcoming election, and let me tell you why.
I believe the Democratic party is going to win the next election. Let me tell you how I think they are going to do it.
Right now, the frontrunners of the two major political parties are extremely unpopular. The Republican frontrunner is Donald Trump. He is convinced that the election of 2020 was stolen from him. I happen to agree with him. But you know what? I don’t care anymore. I have no desire to go over the shenanigans that happened in 2020. What I want to know now is if Trump believes the whole process is broken and that all the Democrats are going to do is cheat and steal, I want to know how he is going to stop that. What steps will he put in place to make sure that each vote is cast by a living and breathing citizen of the United States? What safeguards, what accountability, what security measures, what transparency will be required so that everyone can be certain the election was fair even if we disagree with the outcome? Losing is not evidence of cheating in itself; evidence of cheating is evidence of cheating, and I don’t want anyone to have any room to say anyone cheated. I don’t care about 2020 anymore. I want to know what Trump is going to do about the cheating that he claims is rampant in the system. I want to look forward, not backward.
On the other side of the aisle is the President from the Democratic party, Joe Biden. First, I feel very sorry for Biden. I really do. He should not be in public office at all; he should be at home in retirement. The presidency is stressful for a healthy young person; Biden has no mental faculties to keep up, I don’t care what his press secretary says. I disagree with Biden on foreign policy, how to stimulate the economy, and I really disagree with him on abortion. He is a racist in that he chose a large number of his senior staff based solely on skin color. That is not my interpretation of what happened; he said that is what he was doing. That is the definition of racism, and I feel sorry that he has destroyed the careers of VP Kamala Harris, Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson, and press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre by making them all affirmative action hires rather than touting the qualification of these three women. Again, this is not me saying this; this is what Biden said himself.
Neither of these guys has anything to offer that is new. Which probably leads you to wonder why I believe the Democratic Party is going to win the next election. Their strategy is simple and brilliant. Trump is sailing in the polls right now, and short of something catastrophic happening, he is going to be the Republican nominee. As soon as Trump is confirmed to be the nominee, something bad is going to happen to Joe Biden. It is either going to be some kind of physical incapacitation or he is going to get convicted of something that is disqualifying. If neither of these things comes to pass, they will go with their tried and true method of disposing of someone: an unfalsifiable accusation will come up against Joe Biden from a woman he may or may not have known from years ago that will cause the party to be forced to drop him.
With Biden out of the way, they will then nominate someone whose last name is neither Trump nor Biden, and they will sail to victory in the 2024 election. That will cause Trump to say he was right all along, the Democrats were cheating the whole time, and there was no way he could win. And on the heels of this overwhelming victory, more babies will be murdered before they are born, we will spend more of our great grandchildren’s money on wars that have no definition of victory, and Americans will get even more discouraged with the system.
I guess the best last line of this incredibly uplifting article is to say that Wayne Street has church services Sunday morning at 8:30 and 10:45. This might be a good time to get right with God.
