"OK, so LP candidates should know by now that the time hasn't come yet that most voters recognize that stealing is wrong. Sure, they usually don't steal in their circle of neighbors but when it comes to stealing from strangers across the country, they definitely believe stealing is just fine. And all of this is happening in a supposedly Christian country, with the clear commandment from God that prohibits stealing."
Exactly! In a supposedly Christian country in which people believe in the commandment "Thou shalt not steal," they nevertheless believe in stealing big time via the government. Hypocrisy writ large.
And speaking of hypocrisy, we have the commandment, "Thou shalt not kill," despite the fact that the Bible is filled with murderous atrocities ordered and committed by the very God who issued the commandment. But that's another subject.
Have you ever noticed that when people are invited to an event they have no intention of attending, they are loath to decline, but instead say something like, "I'll see if I can make it"? When someone says, "I'll see if I can make," I know for sure they're not coming.
