The 2016 Presidential Race The Year Of

The Jewish New Year 5777, the year of the Sword began October 2nd at sundown. The Chinese New Year will start January 28, 2017 and will be the year of the Rooster. In American Presidential politics it seems to be, “The Year of Who is Not Worse”. With both candidates having high negative ratings, some are suggesting for you to hold your nose when you vote. For the partisans, the choice is very clear and they have a difficult time understanding why you don’t see their candidate being as great as they do.

To me, watching the first debate was like comparing an old juke box machine and a karaoke machine. One, when prompted played the same old tune. The other, you didn’t know what you were going to get.

I believe we have reached the point where too much is expected of one person. Neither candidate can solve the ills of the country. We want them to be like Diana Prince and Clark Kent, who, when needed can turn into superheroes. For those of you not versed in such matters, those are the alter egos of Wonder Woman and Superman.  So where does that leave us? The responsibility needs to come back to each of us as individuals.

While neither candidate can solve all our problems, I believe if we are to take responsibility then we need to turn to the person who can help. The late Andre Crouch sang, “Jesus is the answer for the world today”. I believe Jesus is the only answer to all of the ills we face as a country. He is only a prayer away. Keeping with the music theme, here’s an old top 10 list. These used to be posted in the public schools at one time. Think of what the country might be like if everyone knew these and tried to live by them. They are known as the Ten Commandments.'

 You shall have no other gods before Me.

 You shall not make idols.

 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

 Honor your father and your mother.

 You shall not murder.

 You shall not commit adultery.

 You shall not steal.

 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

 You shall not covet.
