OK America, You Asked For It

America got what it wanted yesterday as they went to the polls (or not) and voted (or not). We now have a House controlled by the Democrats and the speaker of the House is now Nancy Pelosi. Pause and let that sink in for a few minutes. I don't know about you but that just scares me. Pelosi as the Speaker? Oh man, are we in trouble. It's not the fact that she is a Democrat, it is who SHE is. I am not the type who votes down the party line. I vote for the person and what they represent. In fact, in this election I voted a split ticket. But I fear that America has just made a choice to jump the tracks and we are in for a bumpy ride. I predict that the economy will begin to sour, taxes will rise and the blame will fall at the feet of George W. Bush. Most certainly, our taxes will rise. That much we can be assured of.
Hey, I hope they prove me wrong. I really do. But I doubt it.
I want to see how they "fix" this whole thing in Iraq now that they have the House, and possibly the Senate as well. Wanna bet that for 2 years all we hear is that it can't be done while Bush is in the White House, setting the stage to try to put a Dem back at the helm.
I really hope they are foolish enough to run Clinton, but I'm thinking Obama rises from the crop of wannabe's and gets the nod.

We shall see, but no matter what, something tells me that we'd better buckle up for a wild ride.

It is a shame that people completely apposed to Christian values have been put into power because the people who are supposed to stand (for the most part) Christian values have failed to implement those values in their law making.

I am encouraged that so many Christian value type laws have mostly passed. I think I heard 27 of 28 states passed a constitutional amendment for marriage defined as between a man and woman. I also heard that two democrats that are pro-life and pro traditional family have won.

Maybe, just maybe, Republicans and Democrats will get the message that they are there to serve the people they represent, not to serve themselves and their pocketbooks.

We need Statesmen, not politicians.

We need to earnestly pray for our elected officials that the Spirit of God would get a hold of them.

The only true way to change our country for the good is to change the people of this country.

We also need to remember that this world will get worse as it gets closer to Christ's coming.

Come, Lord Jesus
