If you want to better understand why America does not have nice things it is because we have a tendency to elect lunatics.
Take former Congresswomen Michele Bachmann for example.
Bachmann was a guest on the radio show End Times and told host Jan Markell that, “We need to realize how close this clock is getting to the midnight hour.”
“We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the rapture of the church,” Bachmann said. “We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”
And this quote is crazy enough as it is. But she doesn’t stop there. She goes on to blame President Obama for bringing the end times upon us.
“We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events,” Bachmann said. “Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”
This stuff is One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest crazy. And she didn’t stop there. Later she brought the rapture up again as it related to Obama’s foreign policy.
“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” she said.
I seriously could not make this stuff up if I tried. But just when you think she can’t get worse, she remembered that America is becoming pro same-sex marriage, and she also believes that is doing us in.
“Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States,” she said. “We will suffer the consequences as a result.”
Sadly this nonsense is nothing new for Bachmann. She has already claimed that the Iran deal will lead to World War 3 and on Facebook earlier this month she compared President Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who crashed the Germanwings airliner into the French Alps back in March.
