Permit me to provide you in this devotion with a couple of examples of theÂ kind of political monopoly we talked about yesterday. The first example willÂ show you how Democrats perpetrate it and the second how RepublicansÂ perpetrate it.
Iâ€™ve been flabbergasted for years by professed followers of Christ whoÂ religiously vote for Democratic candidates because of the DemocraticÂ Partyâ€™s support of labor unions. These professed Christians, who belong toÂ a union, appear to belie their Christian profession by unconscionably votingÂ for ungodly Democrats who promise to both safeguard and better all unionÂ benefits. If youâ€™re a union member, even one who professes Christ, who isÂ governed at the polls by your pocketbook rather than the Good Book, then,Â the pro-choice, same-sex marriage defending, society profaning, Christian-bashing, socialist promoting Democratic Party has a monopoly on yourÂ vote.
You may have to hold your nose over all the other things todayâ€™sÂ Democratic Party stands for, things which are merely the means ofÂ monopolizing the votes of others; such as, the votes of feminists,Â homosexuals, atheists, and Marxists, but, as a union member, you feel your pocketbook leaves you with no other alternative but to vote for a Democrat. As a result, the Democratic Party is able to take your vote for granted, knowing that no matter how offensive to you the other planks in its political platform are, youâ€™ll still show up at the polls each election with your union card and voter registration card in hand to punch your ballot for aÂ Democrat.
On the other side of todayâ€™s corrupt political spectrum is the majority ofÂ todayâ€™s evangelicals who religiously show up at the polls to voteÂ Republican, despite the fact that the Republican Party has beenÂ incontrovertibly proven to be populated by â€œJoe Isuzusâ€ and â€œBenedictÂ Arnolds.â€ No matter how many times evangelicals are lied to and betrayedÂ by Republican candidates, evangelicals keep going to the polls and votingÂ Republican. Why? Is it not because the Republican Party has a monopoly on the evangelical vote?
The only choice for evangelicals in todayâ€™s corrupt political system isÂ between unrighteous Democrats and unrighteous Republicans. The onlyÂ difference between the two is one openly vows to promote unrighteousnessÂ in our society, while the other subtly feigns to promote righteousness. In theÂ end, evangelicals opt to support the underhanded politician over the upfrontÂ one; since there are no other alternatives. As a result, the Republican PartyÂ takes the votes of evangelicals for granted, knowing that no matter howÂ many times they renege on their false campaign promises to promoteÂ righteousness in our society back-scarred evangelicals will continue toÂ show up at the polls to cast their ballots for backstabbing RepublicanÂ candidates.
