301,139,947 Reasons You Should Stop Whining About the President

This post has stuff about politics and religion. My perspective has changed


I hate to hear people criticize the President. It’s not that I’m a fan-boy, it’s just that it’s wrong. I know it’s a free country but what gives anyone the right to publicly denounce this or any other President? I don’t intend for this to sound like a rant, but consider the following:

  1. God puts our authorities in place. Not man. Who are we to criticize God’s choice of leaders?
  2. Just because we can doesn’t mean we should. I don’t think that our foundational right of freedom gives us the right to judge or criticize others.
  3. It makes us look bad to other countries. The negative tends to outweigh the positive. So what are we communicating to other countries when we start calling our President an idiot?
  4. The current population of the US is 301,139,947 people. The President has the ability to effect all of us. What would your response be if even a single individual attacked you?

Do you agree? Do you think I’m wrong? Leave a comment and tell me what you think.

UPDATE : I should point out that this post was intended to spark discussion, it is not my actual view. I think it has served its purpose well enough. Thanks to everyone who engaged in the discussion!
