TRANSITIONS IN PARTY POLITICS

(By Carl A. Patton, 13 January 2009)

 

 

Greetings Brethren,

 

Peace be unto you. Once there were real Democrats and Republicans. However no one now is the same. Meanwhile celerity politicians take center stage. You first become a star and then you write a book. Chairs are thus won by many thespians as the media has a fit and the smoke-filled rooms on both sides of the aisle cry out Stop!

 

Abraham Lincoln Frowned But God Never Left

 

Soon after the days that the chattel chains broke

the people originally from “The Land of the Blacks,”

flocked to embrace Lincoln’s politics as he was the

god of the oppressed.

 

Freedom rang many bells and the freedom bell

did ring for some although it is a life-long process

as freedom is seen by some as oppression and

some as equal rights human.

 

Meanwhile a mere political philosophy did not

ensure neither freedom nor the right to vote but only

for a little while as freedom came to the battle

field as the right to citizenship was won and,

 

Not given. However many that knew God saw

it as a God given right. But for the most part with

this legacy of attempted freedom or human rights,

as a human subject being waged the new citizens stayed,

 

Within the ranks of the GOP. But as the new

century moved in and the surge of Civil Rights

Organizations came to fruition also an economic

down turn hit all and both sides suffered.

 

However the poorest of the poor suffered most.

The depression that had historically been upon them

was now counted as a Depression for all people.

A man on the other side of the aisle came to the rescue.

 

FDR spelled out a program that would benefit all

that hungered for a place to eat, sleep and clothes to

wear and a school house. The inexperienced, unseasoned

citizens still looking for hope bolted from the ranks.

 

The balance was now one-sided as it had been

previously however these days and days since

there has been some mood to bring back the legacy

of Lincoln however, in very strange ways.

 

Many celebrity chairs now compete some Black

and some White. However will theatrics bring freedom

and justice? What would Lincoln think? But what

is God thinking as he perceived it before it happened.

 

Peace and Paradise,

Dr. Carl A. Patton writing for the FreedomJournal Press 14 January 2010 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
