When it comes to politics, I believe that God has the deciding vote. Regardless of the specific process, He decides who will be the leader of each nation according to His purposes.
Apparently the people of the United States are in bad need of a harsh taste of exactly what they’re asking for.
Apparently too few remember the 1970s well enough anymore, because with Barack Obama, that’s what we’re going to get.
Apparently there just aren’t enough people who have a proper understanding of economics and what Barack will do to the economy if he sticks to what he’s said he’s going to do. But if the people of the U.S. really value charisma over wisdom (I can hardly believe I accused McCain of being especially wise, but we are talking relative values here), I guess it’s time for us to see where that sort of thinking leads first-hand.
On the negative side, this pretty much guarantees a national if not world-wide recession and ushering in of the One World Currency so that Russia and China can economically enslave not just their neighbors but as many weaker countries across the globe as they can reach. Of course, that’s just the obvious money-related consequences. There’s plenty worse than that which will happen, but I don’t have time to list it all right now. On the positive side, if President Obama really does do everything he says he intends to do it’ll absolutely kill his chances for re-election.
Even hurricanes have a silver lining, right? Here’s hoping we learn the right lessons from our punishment.
EDIT: After a good night’s sleep and listening to the first hour of the Glenn Beck show, I think I agree with Glenn. In many, many ways, John McCain would have been worse for the country. The problem is that Obama is in a position to do global damage with his foolish ideas, and ultimately the U.S. is going to have to live with the long-term consequences of that.
But Glenn is right. Obama is not the worst man that could have been elected. So things aren’t as bad as they could be.
