I have to admit that I was cautious in my hope that President Obama would be a one-term president. Deep down I was concerned over the lack of enthusiasm and support among Republicans for Mitt Romney. Some based their hesitancy over his past record as a moderate governor of a liberal state.
Others were concerned about his religion and were unrealistically fearful that he would impose his beliefs on all of America. Never mind the fact that he did not do so as governor of Massachusetts. The irony is that President Obama is imposing his ideology, which is also his religion, on all of America.
Still, others were concerned because he is a rich, white male who seemingly did not connect with middle class and poor people. So he might not make you feel warm and fuzzy. So what? Do you prefer warm and fuzzy feelings to having a job and adequate income?
51% of Americans answered in the affirmative to that question.
So President Obama won and I have to give credit where credit is due. Thank you, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and any other news networks that campaigned for President Obama’s re-election. I hope he sent you at least a thank you note because you earned it. True journalism has ceased to exist on your networks. Your propaganda machines would make Joseph Goebbels proud.
A big thank you should go to all of the history revisionists. Thanks to you our school children are no longer taught early American history and our Founding Fathers as it truly was. Our school children can name Lady Gaga or the most recent winner of American Idol, but can’t tell you who George Washington was. If you don’t believe me watch Jay Leno on the streets asking basic American trivia that any citizen ought to know. They aren’t goofing off for the camera, they truly do not know!
Many people seemed to be content in ignoring the old adage, “Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it”. We have forgotten men like Benjamin Franklin who wisely said, “This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.”
Thank you to the approximately three million Republicans who stayed home on Election Day.
Thank you to the Democrats who do not like President Obama’s policies but voted party lines out of duty rather than principle.
Thank you to all of the people who voted for President Obama so that they can continue getting their “free” phones and “Obama money”. Have you considered what happens after the working people can no longer afford to pay for your “free” ride? We are already buckling under the dead weight.
Again we need leaders and educators with this wisdom, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. –I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” (Benjamin Franklin, The London Chronicle, November 29, 1776)
Franklin also warned, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
Perhaps therein lies the problem. President Obama pointed it out early in his first term, we are no longer a Christian nation. As a nation we call evil good and good evil. We have passed gay marriage in several states. Babies are murdered every day and it’s excused as “women’s choice”. Depraved gunmen walk into schools and shoot children and people blame the tool. The Ten Commandments is removed from our schools and courthouses. We try murderers in courtrooms but we can’t have a reminder that they are not supposed to murder. Teachers are not allowed to pray in school nor read the Bible to their students. Children are encouraged to learn “safe sex”, but are ridiculed for abstinence. National and state leaders lie and cheat and still get re-elected. The state of this nation is a reflection of its people.
How long will God’s mercy endure?
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
