The book of Genesis recounts the tale of the Babylonians attempt to build a tower that would reach into the heavens. But God prevented the tower’s construction by having the workers speak so many different languages that they couldn’t communicate. These frustrated workers migrated to different parts of the earth with others who spoke their language. This is the Biblical explanation of different languages in different countries.
Not only are there different languages but language is often used deceptively, frequently by members of Congress. They use clever language to cover up their abuse of their elected office. A classic case being Nancy Pelosi. During her decades in office, Pelosi’s investor husband Paul always knew, long before the public knew, when and how pending legislations would affect certain industries - so his investments were always successful, and the Pelosis amassed enormous wealth as a result of their insider trading scam.
In prior years corrupt Congress persons, like Pelosi, could be voted out of office but that is difficult with today’s rigged elections. And those who question election results are disparaged with the negative label “election deniers.”
Many believe Kari Lake was denied the Arizona governorship as a result of a fraudulent election. Lake and her lawyers are challenging the legality of the Arizona election. If the Arizona’s governor race is overturned it should encourage investigations of other questionable elections. And there are entirely too many questionable elections.
Experts predicted an abundance of Republican victories if the midterm elections were conducted fairly and the votes counted fairly. Unfortunately, the 2022 midterm elections not only had numerous voting machine failures, but paper ballots were often misplaced and found later. It often took several days to determine the winner of a local election and results are still being questioned.
Many are questioning if America will ever have a fair election in the future. And unfortunately some actually think fraudulent elections are justified because of the importance of the issues involved.
Admittedly our current society is far removed from what was envisioned by the Founders. In May 2022 , opinion polls indicated 78 % thought the country was headed in the wrong direction. Just six months later in November 2022, 85 % held that opinion. Americans are disillusioned with both the ineptitude and the corruption of their leaders. And they are not sure how to remedy the situation and worrying what will happen if it’s not remedied.
