Hang Him High
How we would love to drive out with a whip of cords those making the Capital a marketplace with votes to buy – not doves. The only way to drive them out is through votes with the hope that new congressmen and women can overturn and turn the tables on those seeking power to serve their self-interests.
We know the money exchangers have been in Congress perhaps since its establishment – exchange of money for votes. Men and women of integrity who refuse to compromise that integrity sometimes seem few and far between.
The mid-term elections are over. We hope for the best. One wonders if Jesus would have been elected if he had been a candidate. We suspect he would have made a good Congressman.
If so, and if he were in Congress today, we’re glad there’s no crossbeam on the Washington Monument. Some of his colleagues and lobbyists would want to hang him high.
