The Truth About Lima's Mayor David Berger and the 2021 Mayoral Race in Lima, Ohio


Happy Easter and Spring Greetings!
Truth About Berger and Lima Mayoral Race Reflections: Lima, Ohio has been plagued with having the same mayor in office for circa 30 years. Mayor David Berger is a worthless Democrat, who pretends to be a Republican, and he has been running Lima, Ohio into the ground since day one of his administration three decades ago. Berger is finally retiring and he is finally stepping aside to allow a new mayor to take the helm. We have four candidates, who are on the ballot in Lima, Ohio on Tuesday May 4, 2021, and they are Elizabeth Hardesty (R), Sharetta Smith (D), who is Berger's current Chief of Staff, Autumn Swanson (D), and Joshua Hayes (D). Some of the leaders in the Allen County Democrat Party are bullying Elizabeth Hardesty (R), Autumn Swanson (D), and Joshua Hayes (D).
Elizabeth Hardesty's vocation is that of a geologist, which is a scientist, who studies the earth. Elizabeth Hardesty lives and votes in Lima, Ohio, so she is a citizen of Lima, Ohio. However, Elizabeth Hardesty's vocation has taken her to faraway places for work like the great state of Texas. Due to Mayor Berger's terrible leadership, many people in and around in Lima, Ohio have had to earn a living outside of our great historical town including me. I sell more books in St. Marys, Ohio, than I am able to do in Lima, Ohio thanks to Mayor Berger. Elizabeth Hardesty wants to make Lima, Ohio safe and prosperous again by ending David Berger's disastrous Democratic policies, which made Lima, Ohio a crime-filled, demon infested, and economically depressed area.
Yes, I, James W. O'Flannery, a Lima Author and Publisher, blame Mayor David Berger (D) for Lima, Ohio being infested with Satan's demons, because he has wrecked our economy and crime has soared under his pitiful leadership. People have died in our streets thanks to Mayor Berger's Democratic policies and both Satan and his demons love death with a passion. Berger is for keeping people on welfare and stunting job creation and business growth. Capitalism is built on people being free to fulfill their callings and vocations in life, which are given to them by Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and to make enough money to support themselves and their families. People need economic opportunity through good paying jobs and a pro-business mindset in government. There are basically only good paying jobs within the City of Lima, if you work for the government or if you work for St. Rita's Catholic Hospital and/or Lima Memorial Hospital. Lima, Ohio does not have a pro-business mindset, which is, why most of the Allen County, Ohio economic activity takes place outside of the city limits in the townships and surrounding villages and small towns.
I live in the greater Lima area of Shawnee Township and people may wonder, why do even I care about the 2021 Mayoral Race in the City of Lima, when I live in Shawnee Township? What happens in the City of Lima affects the rest of Allen County. I have a Lima, Ohio address, so I tell people, that I am from Lima. I think, some people automatically dislike me and some people feel sorry for me, because Lima, Ohio has had a terrible mayor for circa 30 years.
Lima, Ohio saved America and Europe from Nazi tyranny by building the world's finest steam locomotives, coaches aka passenger cars, and railway guns, which were large flatbed freight cars with huge navy cannons mounted on them, for the American-World War II effort. Without these important pieces of equipment being built right here in Lima, Ohio during World War II, Adolf Hitler would have conquered the entire world and he would exterminated every single Jew on the planet. Yes, Barack Obama, we built the American victory over Nazi Germany right here in Lima, Ohio. However, sadly only train buffs and historians like myself know any of this. Why is that? Mayor Berger (D) has turned Lima, Ohio into welfare dump heap and we need Elizabeth Hardesty (R) to turn Lima, Ohio around. Sharetta Smith wants to continue her boss' failed Democratic polies, which gutted Lima in the first place, and be even more progressive aka liberal. I say, "No more!" We as Republicans need to take back Lima, Ohio from the Democrats, who have ruined our city and our county seat. Please vote for Elizabeth Hardesty (R) for Mayor of Lima on Tuesday May 4, 2021, if you live in the City of Lima. Together we can make Lima into a nice town once again and Lima can be a city in which everyone can proud to live and work in.
Let us read Revelation Chapter 12, because it talks about Christmas, which is my number 1 favorite holiday, and it talks about Satan and his demons waging war in Heaven against Yahweh, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Angels:
 

"12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with Child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her Child as soon as It was born. And she brought forth a Man Child, Who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her Child was caught up unto God, and to His Throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his Angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in Heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, 'Now is come Salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the Power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth, that he hath but a short time.;' 13 And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the Man Child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the Commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (KJV 1611).

Purpose of the Reading for this Blog Post: I am NOT calling Mayor Berger or his Chief of Staff Smith "Satan" aka "the dragon" aka "the serpent" or demons and I am NOT calling for a physical war in the streets of Lima, if Elizabeth Hardesty loses the 2021 Lima Mayor Race. The spiritual war has been going on between good and evil, the Holy Trinity and Satan, the Holy Angels and the demons, and Christians and non-Christians for centuries. My point is, that Mayor David Berger (D) and Chief of Staff Sharetta Smith (D) and their policies are spreading evil and they are giving strength and negative energy to Satan and his demons. Satan and his demons are Democrats, because the Democrat Party promotes evil. So, what is my point? My point is, that physical world and the spiritual world are connected to each other and they affect each other. If Elizabeth Hardesty is elected Mayor of Lima and Lima is economically reborn, then crime will go down and less people will die and their will be less negative energy for Satan and his demons to feed off of. Thus both the physical world and the spiritual world in Lima, Ohio will both be better and safer for people. Just think, if all communities had good Republican mayors, then the physical world and the spiritual world be better and safer and America would heal mentally, physically, emotional, spiritually, and economically.
