So Sick Of Politics Already

The words of this song pretty much sum up what’s going through my mind right now.  Sure, it’s a great privilege for us to be able to vote, and I don’t want to change that.  But we’re voting for humans who, despite their ideals are driven by the whims of their financial backers.  We are not voting for the “right” person for the job.  We are not voting for “God’s man” for the job.  We will NEVER have a savior in the White House or in the Senate, or even in the city commissioner’s office.  Vote your conscience, but don’t get sucked into thinking that this choice is the most important one you will ever make.  No matter what happens in our country, Jesus is our king and our savior, and He is where our allegiance should lie.

Oh, and, in case you can’t pick out all of the words amid the images (this was the best video I could find and I don’t have the patience or software to make my own), here they are:

A Savior on Capitol Hill (By Derek Webb, from the album “The Ringing Bell”)

I’m so tired of these mortal men
with their hands on their wallets and their hearts full of sin
scared of their enemies, scared of their friends
and always running for re-election
so come to DC if it be thy will
because we’ve never had a savior on Capitol Hill

you can always trust the devil or a politician
to be the devil or a politician
but beyond that friends you’d best beware
’cause at the Pentagon bar they’re an inseparable pair
and as long as the lobbyists are paying their bills
we’ll never have a savior on Capitol Hill

[Bridge]
all of our problems gonna disappear
when we can whisper right in that President’s ear
he could walk right across the reflection pool
in his combat boots and ten thousand dollar suit

you can render unto Caesar everything that’s his
you can trust in his power to come to your defense
it’s the way of the world, the way of the gun
it’s the trading of an evil for a lesser one
so don’t hold your breath or your vote until
you think you’ve finally found a savior up on Capitol Hill
