Here are some excerpts from an editorial on our political condition as we head into 2019. I totally agree with everything written here.
"The criminal enterprise that is the Trump administration must be relegated to the ash heap of broken promises and political and policy misadventures that have critically hamstrung and twisted the arc of the moral universe. American exceptionalism must no longer be construed as a synonym for isolationist rigidity and intolerance for diversity. The cure for small-mindedness and regressive thinking can be found in constructing bridges to span the ideological chasm that currently divides our nation, not in walls that further splinter us into opposing camps and exacerbate suspicion and hatred."
"We are currently on the wrong path. We must not adhere to the doctrine of America first, but instead allow humanity, compassion, and empathy to spearhead America’s leadership doctrine. We must think globally and act locally, thereby providing the ideological and pragmatic beacons of leadership that garner respect and admiration and yes, to some extent, envy throughout the globe."
"True might is measured as much in terms of commitment to peace as it is in arsenals of destruction. There is virtually no conceivable way any of this can be effectuated by an administration lost in the wilderness of false bravado, wildly flailing at imaginary demons, and resembling Don Quixote “tilting at windmills.” An administration incapable of using any reasonable calculus to define allies from adversaries and directed by a mobster-in-chief who openly heaps praise on ruthless autocrats while harboring disdain for democratic principles cannot and will not successfully render positive results for either the country or the world."
"So, as 2019 beckons, let us all dedicate ourselves to active participation in the dismantling of our corrupt and crooked leadership and bring truth, justice, facts, evidence and a sense of purpose to our leaders and institutions. Let us dedicate ourselves to buttressing a system of checks and balances that promotes democratic ideals and principles that lay at the core of our being. That is what making America great is all about. Welcome, 2019! "

Well, that's just fine and dandy. Here's one that I found particularly edifying . . .
Or to put it in starkly simplistic terms . . .
Donald Trump is the horseman or the RIDER that rides upon the Red Horse of Apocalypse as is written in Revelation 6: v.4: "And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to HIM that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword". (Sword means voice, speech, in this case evil sword)
The RIDER of the red horse - Trump - is already free to go around the earth taking peace from the earth.
Now he has been known by all the nations of the earth, and the whole world is already being tormented by the horseman of red horse with his performance and strong world power and what is written will fulfil literally. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth - Revelation 12:v.12.
Now, even now and only now, we entered really in the time of Apocalypse, that is the seventh and Last Day, such as was planned by the Word - the Word is God - in the beginning for the restoration of all things. One Day with the Lord is as a thousand years.
On the other hand, the RIDER of the white horse also is already running the world, in fulfilment Revelation 19:v.11-16 , he Judges and will make War against the other three evil RIDERS, against the RIDERS of the red horse, and black horse and pale horse.
Well, others two horses and respective evil RIDERS MUST manifest without further delay, then there will be greats punishments over the nations, only and only punishments.
There will be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever will be, as prophesied Daniel: 12:v.1 and JESUS: Mat.24:15-25.
And except these days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake from now on these days will be shortened.
