Democracy “everyone having his own say” is equivalent to the phrase “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” meaning God had turned them over to their own strong delusions. We are a Republic and more than that, a Constitutional Republic. The COTUS is not a “living document” meant to be twisted and wrested to fit the whims of the moment. Furthermore, “gridlock” is not a bad word; the founding fathers meant for us to discuss and debate toward the end of bringing to bear on the issues the best consensus based on the laws spelled out in our Constitution. As in their time, we need men and women steeped in scriptural knowledge having an accurate awareness of Right and Wrong and actively seeking His Will in a given situation with a view of what’s right for all sides in the here and now and in the future as best we can discern. Screaming and shouting (up or down voting) only means the strongest, loudest and most egregious wins; not exactly the mark of “wise and reasoned decision making”!!
