Since the election, I’ve really had little to say simply because I have been so disappointed about Romney’s loss to Barack Hussein Obama. I’m probably like most conservatives, realizing that we are no longer living in the America of our youth. Those days are gone. The days in which anyone could work hard and rise up from the lower classes have come to an end. Things are pretty much set. America will fall into the unofficial class system of haves and have nots and the have nots will have their hands open from the haves, the two groups never intermingling.
Of course, I could be wrong about that. If you are have and you don’t give to the ruling elite, then they are likely to make you a have not by taking what you do have and giving it to the have nots, who will still not have anything other than what they are given. Not a bad life for the have nots. Just sit back, wait on government and before long you will have your Obama phone along with your Obama television, Obama car (electric of course), Obamacare, Obama home, Obama edumacashun, and Obama dollars to spend on a six pack and pork rinds. (Are the the terms “six pack” and “pork rinds” still acceptable in Obama’s America, or have they become “racists?”)
Of course, I could be wrong about that. I have people who keep trying to tell me things are not going to be all that bad. In fact, according to some, I should look forward to Obamacare because it will be a lot less expensive for me than my current insurance which should be increasing their premiums by the end of the day. I know this to be one of those realities of Obama’s America because my prescriptions have already increased in price due to Obamacare. What use to be a $25 copay is now anywhere between $125 and $150. In fact, I think what has happened over the past four years is that the insurance companies swapped my copay for their copay. In other words, they are now paying $25 for my medicines and I’m paying the rest. Yes, I would use generic if there were generics offered.
Of course, I could be wrong about that. I was wrong about this stinking election. For weeks I tried to assure my lovely bride that Romney would win. Needless to say, I was wrong about that. I don’t predict things any more. She tried to ask me if we would be OK during the next four years in Obama’s American and I told her that Jesus is still on the throne. That’s all I’m truly willing to say about the future. I know the God of the future, but not much more about the future.
I’m right about that. As Christians, we must admit that Obama is in office because the God of all creation put him there. We like to think that it was the stupid, greedy, lazy and thoughtless Americans who actually put him there. But ultimately, whoever ends up in office is placed their by our Sovereign Lord. He must have His reasons even though we may not understand His reasons or like the ones we can understand.
I’m right about that. Jesus truly wants our eyes upon Him, and not upon our elected officials. Since Obama’s re-election, I’ve found myself stopped in mid thought over and over again. For instance, there are new reports out now that Obama will adopt U.N. treaties on small arms to “help?” reduce terrorism around the world. It will mean that every gun in America will become registered with another bureaucracy, and more of our rights guaranteed under the Constitution will be removed. My thoughts are… well, maybe someone will stand up to Obama and stop him. Then, realizing that no one will, I realize that we might as well give up on our Second Amendment rights. This is Obama’s America and it no longer belongs to us.
Of course, I could be wrong about that. But it seems to me that Jesus wants us looking to Him for our protection, our provision and our hope. Not government. In fact, it is looking to government that has gotten us in this situation in the first place. We keep thinking our freedoms come from the politicians we elect instead of God. Our freedoms do not come from politicians. They are inalienable rights given to us from our Creator. We have been looking to government far too long to solve America’s problems and not looking to HIM. Only He can bring about the freedom we long for. Only He can bring about the country we hope for. Only He can open the eyes of the people to the truth of the gospel, which is most necessary if this country is ever to resemble anything like the America of our youth. The problem is that even those of us on the right have been looking to government to solve our problems instead of looking to Him. That is exactly the problem those on the left have and we have it too. No politician is going to bring true peace or true freedom. This is why so many we send to Washington to turn things around end up adding to the problem. They can’t solve the problems. Only God can.
Of that, I’m certain. We better quit looking to the some new politician to be the answer and looking to Christ. That comes about by being on our knees in prayer. We can either start now, praying for His mercy in our country, or it will get much worse, in which case, we will end up on our knees in prayer for His mercy. Either way, we need to look to Him, not Obama’s America for answers.
Of that, I’m certain.
