Justice in "Wonderland"?

West Virginia gubernatorial candidate Jim Justice was, for sure and for certain, steadfast and resolute in his personal pledge against tax increases.

However, newly elected Governor Justice, in his previous State of the State" address to a joint session of the West Virginia Legislature in January, suddenly was not at all so sure nor so certain. 

Much like "Alice in Wonderland", he lost his way.

He continues to advocate on behalf of new taxes and fees.

Even worse, these new taxes and fees would disproportionately distress our working poor.

If enacted, this government money grab will reach even deeper into the almost empty pockets of already struggling Mountaineers.

Yikes!

So, where's the "Justice" in these profoundly poisonous proposals?

Does "Sic Semper Montani Liberi!" truly mean that "Mountaineers are always free"?

Or, does it really mean that "Mountaineers always pay the fee"?

I don't know.

I'm just askin'.

About God & Governance

After wondering and worrying about the issues and those who seek our election validation and votes in 2018, especially after my previous Facebook page posts about good governance, a prayerful poem by Meade McGuire came into my thoughts:

"Father, where shall I work today?"

And my love flowed warm and free.

Then He pointed out a tiny spot

And said, "Tend that for me".

I answered quickly, "Oh no; not that!

Why, no one would ever see,

No matter how well my work was done;

Not that little place for me."

And the word He spake, it was not stern;

He answered me tenderly:

"Ah, little one, search that heart of thine.

Art thou working for them or for me?

Nazareth was a little place,

And so was Galilee."

And so, this 2018 election season, as we grapple with the issues and the candidates, let us do so prayerfully, that Providence may chart our choices.

And may God bless you all real good!
