Mr. Putin, the latest dictator over our Russian friends, enjoys his moment of fame while lambasting President Obama through his op-ed articles in U.S. newspapers.
Indubitably, neither I nor my fellow Americans enjoy seeing an ex-KGB thug mocking our duly elected chief executive. And, I can’t honestly say I disagree with what you write about him.
The point I wish to make, Mr. Putin, is the difference between your form of government and ours is we have this peculiar advantage: We the People of the United States of America are the ultimate authority over our government. This should serve to explain how we have endured under one Constitution while your government has undergone profound and bloody changes.
Herewith I give you, Mr. Putin, a historical ‘compass’ with which you can see what lies ahead.
Over the years of our republic, we have made very, very bad choices when selecting presidents. However, after the bad comes the good. The preeminent benefit of our electoral process isn’t selection of good candidates, it is this unique benefit of getting rid of the bums.
Need I remind you, Vladimir, what happened after Ronald Reagan took the helm of our ship of state? While you freely mock our president, think about your future. You won’t be the first Russian tyrant to fall by the wayside.
He who laughs last laughs best.
The most effective thing we can do on a daily basis is pray as we are instructed through the Word of God. While in the mode of seeking the mind of Christ, God imparts wisdom and insight with which we can direct our words and our actions.
There are presently multiple potential presidents in the Republican Party. God will give us the president we deserve, if we fail to be obedient to His Word.
First of all, then, I counsel that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all human beings, including kings and all in positions of prominence; so that we may lead quiet and peaceful lives, being godly and upright in everything. — 1 Timothy 2:1-2, Complete Jewish Bible
