Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
Alaska has its wolves. You can’t miss them. They’re ferocious and deadly. But at least they’re obvious.
Washington, D.C., has wolves, too, though they dress in sheep’s clothing – at least at election time.
Still, if you watch long enough, and closely enough, you’ll catch them stripping off their disguising, flea-ridden wool and exposing their wolfish fangs.
The media obviously push certain politicians to the forefront, and more often than not it’s the most liberal of the bunch. In other words, they’re pushing false prophets who want to sell you a bill of goods while they “fundamentally transform” our country.
So do your own homework on candidates and issues, and investigate what’s beneath the sheep’s clothing. The voting record – and business record – of a politician will tell you a lot of what you need to know.
We have a responsibility to elect leaders who will bear good fruit. That means we need to be wise in the voting booth. It means that if you vote for a liberal Democrat, don’t be surprised if he appoints an activist judge who overturns the will of the people, or if he hires left-leaning bureaucrats who regulate you out of basic constitutional rights. (And by the way, keep an eye on Republicans too: most of them need to get serious about out-of-control spending.) When you vote for politicians, think about the fullness of what they can do, how they will make decisions, how they will vote or lead. It’s a heavy responsibility – but it’s ours.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Before any election, don’t listen to the mainstream media insisting you vote for their chosen one. Look out for false prophets, for wolves in sheep’s clothing. Inform yourself and make your decision – and remember that you are morally accountable for your vote.
