2016—The Election of Fear


 

By Betsy Mayer

The US election of 2016 will go down in history as the campaign of fear mongering—against immigrants, the Washington establishment, and global trade, entities often blamed for Americans’ collective woes. Trump won his presidency by appealing to the fears of a disenchanted electorate—primarily white working class voters who elected an outsider strongman promising to reverse the decline of their American dreams. Exit polls now show that many of Trumps voters also voted for Obama in 2012—for the same reason, a fact that Clinton strategists seemed to have totally missed.

How Donald Trump plans to “make America great again” is anyone’s guess, as his mercurial promises continue to swing wildly. But when people are afraid—of each other, of the status quo, of people they’ve only met as caricatures, all the nice rhetoric of democracy and equality is scrapped, and in its place we hear fear’s darkest sentiments.

The Bible predicts that things will only get worse in the last days of earth’s history. It also predicts that fear will be rampant—“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth…” Luke 21:26. Imagine what could happen when fear is amplified substantially from what it is today. Will America’s fearful citizens erect a demanding religious model of society with its prohibitions and restrictions on the liberal left, which have been gradually dismantling them rather successfully over the last 50 years?

The Bible also predicts that through fear of economic sanction and even death the vast majority of earth’s inhabitants will unite to worship “the beast,” a power masquerading as God’s representative on earth. See Revelation chapter 13. Only those whose names remain in the Lamb’s book of life will escape this vast confederacy of fear. See Revelation 3:5; 13:8.
