While this particular blog is dated November 5th I am really sitting on the couch a month later pondering my thoughts of the day after the Presidential election. Was I excited with the national results? No. Not so much. Does that change the outcome... not a bit.
I think that this nation is in for quite the roller coaster over the next four years. I think that some of the proposed policy issues by the next administration are horrific - health care would be one of them. As I have watched the process unfold over the last few weeks my confidence has not grown.
Locally, I am highly impressed with the fact the Prop 102 (and similar Prop 8 in California) passed with what seems to be a confident declaration of the people. The people have spoken is what the opposition say of the statute. But when the people "speak" about an actual constitutional amendment there are riots to be had and churches to be taunted. On other local levels a conservative march was made here which I think is good. Now that our (Democratic) governor has been tapped to be Secretary of Homeland Secretary we are saying our farewells and looking forward to Miss Brewer (GOP) to leave her Secretary of State position and move to the "ninth floor" and try to get us out of the $2 Billion state debt that our "beloved" Governor will be sticking us with.
I'll stop with my rants because they really accomplish nothing.
I find comfort in the fact that all of this didn't take Jesus off His throne. Nor did it surprise Him. The gospel is going forth. While I am not convinced that this is the end of the world as we know it, it may be the end of the Republic as we know it.
