We have been told ad nauseum: "Our best people are on it."
Old joke comes to mind.
How do you know if DC is lying to us?
Their lips are moving.
Yet, there are women and men who still love America; running for office against pathological liars.
I had the privilege to pray about it last night.

51st Annual "Steak Fry" to Meet Candidates
October 16, 2014
Your word is clearly conclusive even if increasingly not compelling to our world, America, Illinois, churches, commerce, schools, families, and marriages: “Return to Me and I will restore you.”
So we thank and praise You for candidates who do not diss or seek to distance You from the equation of governance and justice.
Prophetic voices have warned us for You of this moment in sacred history when the halls of governance and courts of law will be infiltrated by women and men who do not esteem You above all, mislead, and abandon the principles of our great heritage.
For when a Governor invokes Your verdict in Holy Scripture out of context in celebrating behaviors absolutely antithetical to a contextual understanding of Your Word and when a United States Senator slanders our military, we sense we are perilously close to forfeiting what You have entrusted to us as one nation under You.
We beg Your blessings upon these candidates and this assembly as, together, we labor to call America, Illinois, churches, commerce, schools,
families, and marriages back to You.
Help us to be Your faithful remnant; looking up, standing up, speaking up, acting up, and voting for You by voting for women and men who esteem You.
And as these candidates and this assembly pledge to honor You through public service, bless them according to their individual needs through Jesus in whose name we pray.
Blessings and Love!
