New Beginnings

Well, the election is over and I am completely and unequivocally sick!
I am in shock that the voters of this country elected a Socialist/Marxist for their next president.
I suppose I really shouldn't be shocked, FDR started our country on the path toward socialism. They have been clamoring for more ever since.
I also don't understand how anyone who claims to be a Christian could vote for someone who has no respect for life. Obama said that a young girl who get's pregnant shouldn't be "Punished" with a baby. He is for infanticide! WHY doesn't this matter???
That said, John McCain wasn't my guy either. Senator McCain isn't conservative enough. I think the reason Obama was chosen was because if you looked at the candidates side by side, there really wasn't much difference.
SO, the "let's take part in a historic election. Let's vote for the first black candidate." crowd won. I can see that from one side. I am really proud I live in a country that has overcome such racial divisions as have previously divided us. I briefly hoped that we could stop being "African-Americans", "Asian-Americans" and whatever else hyphen you want to name, but honestly, THIS black man will divide us further.
He wants to spread the wealth of the common man and make sure that there is "equality". In reality, there is only one kind of equality and it lies in our creation, nothing else. The Scriptures even tell us that talents are not given equally. Equality is God given at birth; what we do with our lives makes us more or less. Some will be more motivated, and others less. Equality most certainly does NOT come from the government.
Over the course of the next few weeks and months, I will be blogging on the founding documents that make this country great. I can't claim to be a scholar, but I would appreciate an honest dialogue as we learn together about the things that make the United States of America the greatest country under God.
God Bless America!

Great bold words. Definately needed in a world of beating around the bush. We moved to Broomfield this past weekend and found that our friends who teach the Constitution class I took last year are in our new ward. So we will be taking it again. But I am amazed at the peace I feel since the election. I thought I would be sick as well. But the answer I got was, 'nothing's changed. The plan is the same. You know what to do to prepare.' I look forward to reading your thoughts.

I agree, Mr. Obama isn't going to be good for the country, but I'm not so sure that folks voted for him just because he's black... I don't think that folks realize how similar the R & D parties are. They're used to thinking they're different, and it seems to me that most folks just aren't paying attention. My informal poll says that most people don't have a clue what's in the Constitution, much less how that should play out in the actions of the government. You talk about doing away with some of the unconstitutional portions of the government and it freaks people right out. They just don't see the connection between little government/big freedom or big government/little freedom. And if you don't see that connection, if you don't see it then you don't realize the dangers that Obama's socialist agenda, or if you do then they don't realize the extent of the danger. But I really don't think it was about race.
