My thoughts on the election
I feel a tremendous sense of grief. My body hasn’t processed it yet. It is still welled up inside of me. There is a restless quality to it. And fear. Fear for the future. Fear for Israel. Fear for the unborn. Fear for the rights of gun owners. The list is endless.
It’s not that Romney was my guy. He wasn’t. He wasn’t even my first or second choice. I voted for Senator Santorum in the California primary election. It is more that Obama is definitely not and never will be my guy. For where we are in history, for where we are morally, for where we are fiscally, reelecting President Obama is a disaster for our nation. Don’t believe me? Time will tell. It may not take much time actually.
My wife and I were very involved in the 2008 presidential campaign. We were fond of Governor Palin. We shared a kinship with her. We both have special needs children and avoided the temptation to abort. She is likeable and a solid conservative. We went to campaign rallies, donated money, wore t-shirts, displayed bumper stickers, planted yard signs, wrote letters to the editor. I spent hundreds of hours in prayer for her campaign and the presidential election. As you know, it didn’t turn out so well.
2008 was an exhausting and discouraging experience. This time, it was less exhausting but even more discouraging. This time, I don’t think our nation will survive.
