Pastor Dewey Note: We all lose, our government does not function. Both Republicans and Democrats are very dysfunctional. The foundation of America is shaking and both parties are so very focused on their own interests, not the interests of the common folk like you and me. Please pray for them and all of America. I have never seen anything like this!

I have said for years and years, the two party system is broken in America, the political system in this country is beyond sick.

Whether it is our Homes, Marriage, Families, Friends, Churches, Workplace, Health Care, State and Federal Government….Let us remember when God is in it, there is no chaos….Our God is not a God of chaos, without HIM there is chaos.
