The former NFL linebacker/likely candidate for chronic brain trauma/alleged man of God holds forth on presidential candidates and political conviction at World News Daily, with his essay "Are All Presidential Candidates Liars?"
Why is it so difficult for politicians to be honest with us, especially those running for the office of president of the United States?
I am simply saying that if you know you are going to run for president, or if you have made your mind up that you're running, why is it so hard to let us know? You say it is the aspect of timing and not wanting to get in too early and the wisdom of when to announce. Even with those reasons, I still have a problem with you. If you know you're going to run but say you are going to wait and see, then that is really an outright lie. On the other hand, if you truly don't know if you're going to run for president of the United States by now, what makes you think you are a good candidate anyway? It certainly looks like indecision to me.
Hutch posits a number of questions for candidates—Does your belief system bounce back and forth from day to day and month to month? What are your thoughts about family values? What are your thoughts about God and country?—and eventually gets to this:
What do you propose to do about the poor? Are you smarter than Jesus Christ? He told his disciples, "The poor will be with you always." We will never be able to eliminate the problem of the poor. Jesus said that even with regard to the poor, it is best if you do what pleases Him first, even though it may seem that it is not the best thing for the poor.
Got that? Trying to diminish the ranks of the poor goes against Jesus's beliefs! SO KNOCK IT OFF.
