Political Post! Beware! Read at Your own Discretion!


I heard all the propaganda from both sides.   Obama was evil, and the possible anti-christ and Romney was only interested in rich people.  Obama stood up for many of the things I felt were biblically wrong.  But then again, with Romney... we all know that just because one seems Christian doesn’t mean he holds true to his faith.  I decided I would observe both parties more closely.  I am, after all, a girl who has been known to change her mind a time or two. 

The TV ads were all the same.  First Obama put Romney down, then visa versa.  Ugh!

The presidential debates were more enlightening.  There I saw our president lie.  I’m sure the other candidate told some whoppers as well…  but I couldn’t prove it.    But Romney seemed more like a leader.  He talked about the importance of jobs and how he was going to create more jobs.  To me, this is important.  I have too many family members living off of welfare, food stamps, and government help.  It’s more profitable for them to ‘not work’ than to work.  It kills their self esteem.  One told me just yesterday, “I get up.  I eat.  I play some video games.  I eat again.  I watch TV.  Then I go to bed.”  Very sad.

Is it really beneficial to our country to have 15 million more people on food stamps in the last 4 years?  If this trend continues...  God help our country.

Would Romney have created more jobs had he been elected president?  I guess we’ll never know.

Then there’s the moral issue.

I have friends and family who:  have had abortions, who are gay, who live off the government, who believe our president has done a good job and has decided to re-elect him. etc.  

I may not believe or think the way that they do, but I love them just the same and I respect their right to believe what they believe and think the way they think.  If everyone thought the same way we wouldn’t need an election now, would we? 

Here it comes….

This is ONE of the BIG reasons why I voted for Romney:  I saw our president over and over again arrogantly mock, disrespect, and make fun of the ‘other party’.    That would be me.  And yes, I take that personally. 

Facebook has been inundated with voters who mirror the acts of our president.   WHAT?!

Where is our country’s class?  What has happened to our leadership?  Where are we headed as a nation? 

To those of you who are my friends and disagree with me:  It’s okay.  We can respectfully disagree and still be friends.   

To those of you who agree with me:  Let’s be sure and not fall into the same trap as many others and ‘put down’ those we do not agree with. 

As a Christian, I have read posts that have been hurtful and labeled ‘me’ as a Christian, stupid for believing what I believe.  My decision to follow Christ did not come from brainwashing or lies.  It came from a heart that was changed…  and the Word.  Can’t you as an unbeliever respect my stand as a Christian?   I would not put you down for what you believe.  I may not agree…  but we each need to come to our own conclusions. 

I try to be careful and not post about political stuff…  but I need to stand up for what I believe in.

May God be with us!
