The Beatitudes Of American Politics Or How To Get Elected As President Of The United States


Elected are the extremely wealthy, for the highest office in the land is theirs for the taking. Or the buying. Whatever it takes.

Elected are those who take pleasure in the destruction of those with the nerve to have a different opinion, for they shall really feel good when they watch their opponent suffer.

Elected are the arrogant who tell it like it is while talking continuously about themselves, for they shall inherit the White House.

Elected are those who hunger and thirst for more and more power, for they will never be satisfied but they’ll sure have a lot of fun taking that power from everyone else.

Elected are the baby killers, for even the evangelical crowd doesn’t care about murdered babies anymore.

Elected are those who have the gift of looking less evil than the other guy for they shall be worshiped as a god.

Elected are the agitators and the loud mouths for they shall get a lot of attention in the media.

Elected are those who persecute the righteous, for righteousness is on the wrong side of history.

Elected are you when you say all sorts of evil toward others and still somehow manage to invoke the name of Jesus Christ on your behalf. Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in November. Not so much in eternity but November.

And November in America is all that matters, baby.

If you don’t believe me, look it up in Double Corinthians.
