Election Day Thought

Democracy: they cried out, "Crucify him, crucify him".

I wanted to vote "Christ" but he wasn't there on the ballot paper.

It is a terrible form of government until one considers all the others.

That's because He's a King, not a commoner.

Best arguement against democracy I've heard in a long time

No write in vote option? Maybe if enough people voted for "Christ" - some party or other would wake up and realize that there are still enough people with Christian values in the UK that do have opinions that matter.

There was an interesting thing I linked to in the Torygraph the other day: i.e. which party most matches your political viewpoint. I thought it was sad that abortion/prolife issues were not even MENTIONED out of 12 (IIRC) options. Not even on the radar. It's certainly not "topic #1" in US elections either, as a general rule -- BUT people over here do oftentimes take a candidate's stance on those issues into serious consideration.

Let me put this way: your "conservative" party would have only matched with my worldview 42% of the time. Pretty lame! If that's as conservative as your mainstream so-called "Conservative" party goes!

Of all the forms of government democracy is the worst, with it you have a tyranny by the masses, at least with one tyrant you can avoid him, what chance do you have against millions of tyrants?

'My kingdom is not of this world. If it were...?' Possibly wouldn't be voting Green.

Volpius Leonius: "at least with one tyrant you can avoid him."

More to the point, with one tyrant you only need to kill one person, as my maternal grandfather set out to do to Hitler.

Miles: "My kingdom is not of this world . . . "

Don't misunderstand this one, Miles. It means Jesus' kingdom is of divine right, intangible and indestructible by any human agency.

Volpus Leonius- you obviously never lived in the Third Reich,or in Stalinist Russia. Avoiding tyrants is not easy, as some of my relatives by marriage found at the cost of their lives in death camps. Modern tyrants are very efficient.
