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

Yeah, I might be being brainwashed, but just a little.

Sicko

I know, I know. Michael Moore is a communist. Michael Moore is a big, fat idiot. Michael Moore should just go ahead and move to Cuba if he likes it so much. Michael Moore may just be the Antichrist.

Now that we’ve dispensed with the formalities, here are my top ten things that may happen to you, my fellow red blooded conservative Christian American if you choose to view Michael Moore’s Sicko:

1. You may feel compassion for the woman who lost her husband without a fight because the insurance company and the hospital felt that it was too expensive to attempt a bone marrow transplant that was considered an experimental treatment for his condition.

2. You may listen to a British family practice physician (paid by his government) talk about his $170,000 per year salary and million dollar house and Audi and think that he’s doing very good for himself. When you hear him say that American doctors would be quite comfortable in Britain but may want to stay in America if they want a 2 million dollar house and 3 nice cars and 5 flat screen TV’s, you might wonder if the capitalism we practice in America is really about allowing the entrepreneur to live the American Dream or if it’s more about allowing Gordon Gecko to declare “Greed is Good!”

3. You may wonder if your insurance company could or would drop you from coverage for an undisclosed yeast infection.

4. You may question why a 9/11 rescue worker now on social security because of her respiratory problems that prevent her from working is able to buy her medicine for 5 cents in Communist Cuba when it costs her 20 percent of her monthly Social Security payment in the USA.

5. You may start to wonder if despite following Dave Ramsey’s suggestions to the letter and saving plenty for your retirement you will one day be asking your kids for a spare room because of all of your medical bills.

6. You may wonder how in America someone could lose their 18 month old child because the hospital the child was brought to via ambulance was not in-network with the insurance provider and it took 2 hours to straighten that out and get the child to the “right” hospital just in time for her to die.

7. You may think about how a 35 hour work week and 5 weeks of vacation per year in Godless France may be an easier place to enjoy your family and practice your family values than corporate America.

8. You may wonder why the Al Qaeda detainees at Guantanamo Bay have access to government provided state of the art health care that average citizens and even military personnel could never get without large bags of cash.

9. You may wonder whether it is more effective to help our neighbors by raising cash in a church basement so they can afford a simple test or to change the system so they don’t have to raise that money in the first place.

10. You may realize that Michael Moore and all documentary makers are manipulative with your emotions and distort the facts. France and England are not Utopias. We can’t just turn on socialized medicine and make everything wonderful. BUT, there is something truly wrong with our health care system and there is a lot of truth in what Mr. Moore has to say. Calling him or those politicians across the aisle the enemy and refusing to listen to them is just burying your head in the sand. Michael Moore may not have the solution figured out, but he’s right that we need to come up with one.

Then again, maybe you will just spend the whole movie yelling at the screen about how you’d rather have dinner with Stalin than a liberal democrat like Michael Moore. In that case, you might as well skip this one and spend another night working late to save for your future medical bills.
