The Process of Electing the President of the United States
I posted this four years ago when all the Presidential stuff was going on then. The information is still pertinent today, mainly because nothing has changed as far as the election process is concerned. Hopefully, you will find it informative, as well as providing some perspective on what all the hoopla is about. It is not what it is often projected to be.
So many people are under the delusion that come the first Tuesday in November that they will march into their respective voting centers, enter the voting booth with ballot in hand, and cast their vote for whom they wish to be the next President of the United States. The reason why the whole process is a delusion is because when it comes time to elect the President that is not how he is elected. The general population vote has no bearing upon the election. He or she is elected by politicians. The Second Article to the Constitution, along with the Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution, makes that very clear. Yet, since so many scoff and assume that they are making a difference, the following Article and Amendment are provided here, since those same scoffers usually are too busy playing patriot to go look it up on their own.
"They're All Bad Till They Ain't"
That is a classic statement from the movie based on a true story, the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
It came toward the latter part of the movie when American contractors hired to protect U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were fighting for their lives amid several hellish raids by Muslim insurgents upon their Benghazi, Libya compound.
That said, however, the movie depicts what took place on September 11, 2012 and details what has been conveniently swept under the rug by the likes of Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama (aka Barry Soetero), and numerous politicians on both sides of the isle.
STAR WARS: The Force is Getting Stale
Yesterday, my wife and I decided to take in a Sunday afternoon matinee and watch the latest round of Star Wars movies that has been produced over the course of the past 40 years.
For those that might be unaware, the first Star Wars (A New Hope) was released in 1977 or back before I had even graduated High School!
Then came The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983) before a sixteen-year interlude took place.
Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God?
Recently, Wheaton College political professor Larycia Hawkins was suspended from her post for stating, “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”
Others concur with her stance, not seeing an appreciable difference between the two religions (actually three, if Judaism is included). Writing for the left-leaning Huffington Post, Kelly James Clark argued,
Muslims and Christians worship the same God if one or both are either directly acquainted with God (perhaps through a religious experience) or if both are part of a chain of testimony that traces back to someone who was directly acquainted with God (say, Abraham). Worshipping the same God does not require either person to get their description of God just right (or even right at all).
