Let him who is without sin cast the first stone:

According to the Gospel of John, the Pharisees, in an attempt to discredit Jesus, brought a woman charged with adultery before him. Then they reminded Jesus that adultery was punishable by stoning under Mosaic law and challenged him to judge the woman so that they might then accuse him of disobeying the law. Jesus thought for a moment and then replied, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.” The people crowded around him were so touched by their own consciences that they departed. When Jesus found himself alone with the woman, he asked her who were her accusers. She replied, “No man, lord.” Jesus then said, “Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.”

It appears that the essence of politics is to blame (stone) someone else. While the denigration and name calling has been the stock in trade of political campaigns, in these days of mass media and national  despair, we have come to be a nation of “entertainment voters”. Elections are or rather should not be about who makes the most entertaining statements . It should be about the character of the campaigner. Currently this trait does not seem to factor into why we should vote for them. Looking at who we have in power Obviously “TOTUS”, Jeff Sessions, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Scott Pruitt, Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson and Ryan Zinke to name a few. No matter what you think of this administration, the bottom line is how far the damage currently being done will go. We have our trusted allies seeking to make progress without us and our enemies enjoying the show. It is well to remember that voting is privilege and should be considered an honor. Who you vote for should not be equivalent to voting for entertainment favorites.
