Trust the process of democracy and support those who are elected, even if you didn’t vote for them. Politician bashing is never helpful and just deepens division. Be of good peace. Here is what Wesley had to say: “I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them, 1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy: 2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against: And 3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.” October 6, 1774
