Apparently this is showing up on T-shirts around the country.

Ineptocracy-a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded by goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Let’s examine this statement.

Does that sound like the world where you live?  Really? Why is that? How did the least capable get elected? Oh, by the votes of the least capable of producing. So those capable of producing didn’t bother to vote?

If we are blessed to live in a democracy, we have the free and equal right to participate in a system of government, often practiced by electing representatives of the people by the majority of the people.

Aha! So where were we during the last elections?

God speaks of a different sort of election.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble,and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:10-11, NIV)

Prayer-Lord, help us to be good citizens for both our country and you. Amen.
