Tipping the scales



Have you ever heard the phrase "Don't rock the boat?"
I was reading a book called The Second Mayflower by kevin Swanson , and one of the analogies that he used when talking about politics was that of a balancing scale.

It only takes a couple of people on one of the far ends of the scales to make all the people in the middle of no effect! You don't have to have half the world behind you to make a difference, God almost always works through minorities, but not just any minorities, dedicated minorities. Minorities who know where they're going, and why they're going there

(Quick note, I don't think that the worlds problems will be solved through politics, that can only happen when fathers take their position as servant leader at the head of the family, when the church and  the family get back into their God given positions. But I also don't think that we can simply wash our hands politics and government and think that we'll be able to come back to them later. We've got to fight on all fronts, though we will all have areas of focus.)


Far to often, people on the right (but more likely just a little right of center), are concerned about picking someone who's 'electable,' rather then someone who will upset the status quo, which is why said 'Republicans' seldom get anything done! The liberals on the other hand tend to push candidates, bills, and legislation that most would consider 'extreme,' because know where they're going, and they have a plan to get there, but it's not a place where I would like to be.

If we want to win the battle in the political sphere, we need to have a goal in mind, and path in sight, and determination to do what it takes to stick to that path! Get on the end of the seesaw!!!

Semper Reformanda!
