Welcome to governmentplainandsimple.com
Plain and simply put, this site is a platform for discussing questions about the public policies of America’s local, state, and federal governments and using the Bible as the standard for these discussions.
Since God is the creator both of humanity and the spheres within which humanity lives, it is logical to press into the challenges and responsibilities that make up one of these spheres – the civil government – and to do so with confidence and determination. This is the only way to find plain and simple answers.
Admittedly, words such as “plain” and “simple” are seldom part of conversations about government; however, they can be.
Weak and Indecisive Leadership?
I recently heard a commentator discussing the perception of President Obama among some of his fellow Americans as being a weak and indecisive leader.
I must disagree with this assessment.
Obama is one of the most resilient and resolute leaders America has ever had. While some consider it counterintuitive for him to apologize repeatedly for America’s past political agendas, remember, he comes from an apologetic socialistic-driven world view that endorses this position.
Currently, there is a conflict in our country regarding undocumented aliens coming across our borders. The magnitude of their illegal entry is finally at the point both of challenging the sanctity of our legal system and of endangering the health of our citizens.
There is no single piece of legislation that will immediately save the day; however, this crisis can be somewhat ameliorated. By using existing laws to protect our borders and to guarantee that all aliens be treated humanely while they wait for just and speedy immigration hearings, this crisis can be somewhat ameliorated.
