Four thoughts on US Presidential elections

“Trust no one who expresses a conviction with all their energy and vehemence, just to turn around and retract their words because they meet with disapproval and a possible impediment to the achievement of what they want.”
(Ngobesing Suh Romanus).

“A US Presidential election is not an affair of the US alone. It concerns the whole world although not the whole world participates in voting. Whoever has an opinion to express, and whoever can influence the way it goes must not hesitate as long as they act in accordance with the law. The work of a US President has an impact on the whole world”.
(Ngobesing Suh Romanus).

“Individuals who do not know that words have power to build and destroy, and who speak before they think, should not be trusted with positions in which they have to make important declarations; for they may carelessly utter words that will end up causing enormous destruction.”
(Ngobesing Suh Romanus).
“During serious democratic election campaigns, as we witness in the USA, candidates hold debates to show proof of mastery of the issues and how they would lead if given power. It must be admitted that it is not easy. Listen very keenly to what the candidates say and how they say them. Words and how they are said speak volumes of those who utter them.”
(Ngobesing Suh Romanus).

  1. I’m an American, and I must say that this year’s elections are frightening to me. We have the worst candidates ever, and I don’t understand my fellow citizens who are voting for Mr. Trump. The thought of him being our president fills me with deep fear and apprehension. I have read many opinions from other countries on our elections, and all of them are in disbelief at the shenanigans taking place here. Be glad you live in another country! It’s embarrassing to be an American right now, even though I had no part in choosing who would run.

    I truly wish that more American Christians would stand up and oppose this nonsense! However, I know that it is all in God’s hands, and I hate to say it, but I do believe it’s too late for the U.S. as far as the Lord is concerned. The people of this country turned their backs on Him long ago, and now we are reaping the consequences of that choice. How many cities and nations found in the Bible fell because of their disobedience and/or disdain for God’s commands? A lot.

    I hope my comment makes sense, as this is an issue that upsets me. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.


    • Thank you Melissa. Just continue to pray and do your best for your country. The good works of a few can save the rest. God will save many because of a few of you who are steadfast with him. Courage.

  2. There are lots of ways to speak out. The most important one for Americans will be on their ballots. May wisdom, vision, honor, respect and hope govern their choices.

  3. Thank you for writing this. Election in the US do have the potential to influence the entire world: especially this election. If people who are not US citizens have concerns about what is going on, I encourage you to make them known. If the words of our politicians are ripping the American people apart and inciting violence, what effects might they have on the rest of the world?
