Vote for the Statesman – Dr. Kate’s View

I really appreciated the latest post over at Dr. Kate’s View that compares the “statesman” vs. the “politician.”

Dr. Kate has encouraged readers to share the post, so here is an excerpt:

Contemplating the dire situation our Country faces, with ‘elections’ coming up, some manner of separating the wheat from the chaff is essential.  General guidelines, perhaps, that help to discern specific issues.

Red Beckman’s Walls in our Minds is one of those sources.  Here is a list of ten differences between what we have now —politicians— and what we need, Statesmen and Stateswomen:

A Statesman loves the Constitution.

A Politician   hates the Constitution.

 

A Statesman enforces the Constitution.

A Politician violates the Constitution.

 

A Statesman uses truth to keep power in the hands of the people.

A Politician uses lies to gain power over the people.

 

A Statesman‘s primary concern is to secure freedom for future generations.

A Politician’s primary concern is to get elected or re-elected.

 

A Statesman will not play politics with the people’s money.

A Politician will buy votes with tax money.

 

A Statesman knows the people must control government.

A Politician believes that government should control people.

 

A Statesman knows the people must limit government’s power to tax.

A Politician believes government should have unlimited power to tax.

 

A Statesman gives his allegiance to the people and country.

A Politician gives his allegiance to government.

 

A Statesman will demand a balanced budget.

A Politician will spend money stolen from future generations (deficit spending).

 

A Statesman will cause peace.

A Politician will cause wars.

Pretty stark comparisons, but I bet you all can think of a thousand ways in which your so-called representatives and candidates on the trail do and do not fit these categories. All candidates must be held up to these ten points of light.

A statesman shows you that he is through ACTIONS, not words.  Democrats demand words…”say you’re against Nazi’s!!!” A statesman deports the last remaining SS officer in the U.S..

Importantly, “A Statesman will cause peace”.  Who wants war?  Who wants peace, and ACTS on it?  Think North Korea.  Who would have been served by war with them?  Who wants war on the streets, like the communist brown shirt thugs known as Antifa?

Think, discern, remember, watch.  It is our responsibility now to back up what we said and acted on in 2016, which is we will vote for the Statesman who tells the truth.

Once you “live” looking for the Statesman or Stateswoman, you can see clearly. And remember it may take time, and we need to keep “control” of the House and Senate, with no room to “spare” on principle.

Make your elected official into a statesman…if possible, but hold them to that standard!

VOTE 2018!
