I love my country. I love our freedoms. But do you ever wonder….huh?? I understand – basically – how the whole election process works. However, I don’t always "get" it. To understand is not necessarily to understand. If you’ve read my blog much, you probably know I’m a conservative, Christian, Republican, right-winger; whatever you want to call it. Putting that aside for a moment though, I want to know this….why is it, in this day and age, when most Christians get ripped apart for their beliefs, that Barack Obama and his crew are trying to use his supposed Christianity as a major selling point – and it’s working???? If some other candidate (like, say, a Republican) was out there saying "look at my beliefs, look how Christian I am – the Lord told me to become president"…. the media would be shredding him, making him a laughingstock. I’m not saying I wouldn’t love to have a sold-out-for-Christ president. That’d be totally awesome! What I’m saying is A) I don’t trust him, and what he’s saying; is it just a ploy to get our minds off the whole muslim thing (I don’t know the man, so I can’t say either way…but it makes me go hmm…) and B) if any of the other candidates were espousing the same line, they’d have already been pushed out of the running. Now, don’t anyone get on here and tell me how wondrous Obama is, or how narrow-minded I am, or whatever. Because that’s not my point. Obviously, since I’m a Republican I don’t want any of the Democratic candidates to become president. Duh. I’m also not saying that all Muslims are terrorists or anything. It’s just sort of strange, the way things are twisting, don’t you think?? In all the years since I’ve been old enough to vote – actually, before that – since I was old enough to listen to my parents about their voting – we’ve had presidents I’ve liked and ones I haven’t liked and so on, of course. But this is the first time I’ve been truly scared about where our nation might be heading. Seriously. My comfort is in knowing that it is God who places people in power, to bring about His will (it says so in the Bible, so I believe it!). But I guess it could be His will that our country goes to Hell in a handbasket, right??! Maybe the End is near?! Lol, I’m kidding, but do you know what I mean?
