Letter: America’s pols act like little children


I am fed up with both political parties.

The way so-called educated, elected officials are acting in Washington. I am talking about both political parties, Democrats and Republicans. They are acting like preschool children fighting over a toy and pouting because they can’t get their way like little children. They forget that us voters are who got them their jobs or toys to begin with and we can take the toy away from them.

I also am seeing so much hate between the two parties. Not only from Democrats, but also from the Republicans. The calling of names and the chanting in Congress and the Senate. Again, they are acting like little children. I also see hate from everyday people of once friends because the once friend is of the different political party and even friends of the same party defriending a friend because they are friends of a person of the other party. Even though that friend is still of the same party.

This is even going on among so-called Christians.

As my pastor said, “We are not to judge people. But we can be fruit inspectors.”

That is in the Bible. “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

I am not seeing any of these from either political party, the news media and even some Christian voters.

All Americans need to get these special fruits. No matter what political party you are a member of, even non-Christians, but it’s a lot easier to get these fruits if a person is a Christian because then the person has the help of the Holy Spirit.

Even though I am still and always will be a strong conservative, I have both Democratic and Republican friends who I love and think the world of. There will be no politics in Heaven.
