Well, I knew it was going to turn out this way and I have so many thoughts going through my head right now.
I am disappointed, sad, frustrated, angry,and scared. I just feel like I could puke. I feel like I could cry. Not because of defeat, just plain sadness for our country.
Perhaps I should warn you before you start reading. I am a conservative republican. I don't hide this fact, I am not at all ashamed. So, if you voted for Mr. Obama, you may not like what I have to say but since this is MY blog, TOUGH TIDDLYWINKS!!! :)
Honestly, one of my fears is for Mr. Obama. I really do fear that his life is in jeopardy. That is sad for his little girls. That is sad for our country. If something does happen to him, what will happen in our country. Will there be a civil war? So many questions, so many fears.
I am SO mad, because I feel like just because people wanted a change from President Bush, they supported Mr. Obama. Who was the inexperienced candidate in this election? Mr. Obama- Lucky us- Now he gets to "learn" on our watch. Very scary.
This election WAS an issue of race. Who can deny this? Many whites voted for Mr. Obama, but how many blacks do you suppose voted for Mr. McCain? I guarantee that it was very few. For me it was not an issue of race, I'm just simply stating what is obvious to me.
The fact that Mr. Obama had such support of the young voters is very disheartening. It makes me wonder where our country is headed even years down the road when I am old? Where have all the morals gone?
I DO NOT trust this man. I question where his campaign funds came from. I question who he associates with or has associated with. It's appalling to me that he was a member of a congregation led by an anti-American "minister". Because of his associations, he could not be in the FBI, CIA, etc. YET our country has elected him to be the next President. AMAZING!
I could seriously go on and on and on and on about this but what good would that do?
As my boss states so often.... It is what it is.
So, at this point, I pray that Mr. Obama leads our country in the right direction. I pray for a change in his views. I pray that he is protected from harm. I pray that God works on him. I pray I am proven wrong. I pray for unborn babies, for mothers who will chose to abort, for our soldiers who have given so much for our country and now probably for no "victory" when we withdraw. I pray for children who will be raised in non-traditional families. I pray that I will be able to instill my morals in my children- all while having to explain to them how our country ended up the way it is. Again, I could go on and on.
I have a song that plays on my blog titled "God of this City" by Chris Tomlin.
If you want to listen to it, scroll down to the very bottom where the music is listed in a blue box, and click on it. The words to this song have been in my head today, knowing that no matter what God is in control.
"You're the God of this City. You're the King of these People. You're the God of this Nation, You are"
So, if I truly believe that, then I must be at peace with the outcome. God is in control. God has a plan. One day, His plan will be revealed.
God Bless America!
