The right wing (Conservatives) versus the left wing (Liberal/Socialist), who is right?

In Cuba we had Batista on the right, who ravaged the country and its wealth, here is what history tells us:

Fulgencio Batista y Zaldívar (/bəˈtstə/;[1] Spanish: [fulˈxensjo βaˈtista i salˈdiβaɾ]; born Rubén Zaldívar;[2] January 16, 1901 – August 6, 1973) was a Cuban politician who served as President of Cuba from 1940 to 1944, and as its U.S.-backed military dictator from 1952 to 1959, before being overthrown during the Cuban Revolution. Batista initially rose to power as part of the 1933 Revolt of the Sergeants, which overthrew the provisional government of Carlos Manuel de Céspedes y Quesada. He then appointed himself chief of the armed forces, with the rank of colonel, and effectively controlled the five-member "pentarchy" that functioned as the collective head of state. He maintained this control through a string of puppet presidents until 1940, when he was himself elected President of Cuba on a populist platform.[3][4] He then instated the 1940 Constitution of Cuba [5] and served until 1944. After finishing his term he lived in Florida, returning to Cuba to run for president in 1952. Facing certain electoral defeat, he led a military coup against President Carlos Prío Socarrás that preempted the election.[6]

Back in power, and receiving financial, military, and logistical support from the United States government,[7][8] Batista suspended the 1940 Constitution and revoked most political liberties, including the right to strike. He then aligned with the wealthiest landowners who owned the largest sugar plantations, and presided over a stagnating economy that widened the gap between rich and poor Cubans.[9] Eventually it reached the point where most of the sugar industry was in U.S. hands, and foreigners owned 70% of the arable land.[10] As such, Batista's repressive government then began to systematically profit from the exploitation of Cuba's commercial interests, by negotiating lucrative relationships with both the American Mafia, who controlled the drug, gambling, and prostitution businesses in Havana, and with large U.S.-based multinational companies who were awarded lucrative contracts.[9][11] To quell the growing discontent amongst the populace—which was subsequently displayed through frequent student riots and demonstrations—Batista established tighter censorship of the media, while also utilizing his Bureau for the Repression of Communist Activities secret police to carry out wide-scale violence, torture and public executions. These murders mounted in 1957, as Fidel Castro gained more pubilicity and influence. It is suspected that the amount of killings amounted to about 20,000 people.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18]

Catalyzing the resistance to such tactics, for two years (December 1956 – December 1958) Fidel Castro's 26th of July Movement and other nationalist rebelling elements led an urban and rural-based guerrilla uprising against Batista's government, which culminated in his eventual defeat by rebels under the command of Che Guevara at the Battle of Santa Clara on New Year's Day 1959.

Then came Fidel Cartro from the left wing and we all know how he ruled Cuba ruthlessly and left if destitute....

So who is better or should Adventist stay out of politics?

None is right. When Jesus come He is coming for his true followers.

Right wing need Jesus

Left wing need Jesus.

America must put back the 10 commandments back in school, in public pleases.

Study the Bible and you will see that the economy of Christ is.   The disciples of Jesus didn't understand what Jesus was saying or what the Kingdom was until after his resurrection.  They thought in terms of political as do many SDA and Christians today.   Right wing and Left wing is part of the Babylon confusion. 

Yes Babylon is coming to an end.  & I'm impressed that upstairs is someone that hates me intensely and would come down here and kill me if she had the opportunity to do so.  Except She thinks I'm ready for heaven and she wants me me to burn in hell with my wife.  We live in dangerous times.  That would be the mutilation, evil workers and dogs.  Which I'm full of them here where I'm at it is of paramount importance that I get out very soon and go to a safer place where God will take care of me greater trust and greater opportunities.  I'm surrounded by evil workers here it is so bad.  Take my wife and get out as soon as I can wisely and safely.  & don't come back don't even look behind you.  & Jessica my wife had better do the same.  I have been a good example to her.  Hopefully Jesus is enough for her by now...  God bless each He Can!?

Believe in the Kingdom of Christ. Be a Monarchist.  Believe in and follow the laws of God.  The rest is Babylon.
