The Morning After
Last night Barrack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th President of
The United States of America. Obama rallied much of the country
behind his political campaign with vigor, stamina, and charisma which
appealed to young and old, rich and poor, black and white.
The aftermath of this election will leave many Americans disappointed
and others ecstatic for various reasons. There is no doubt a
population of Americans that would NOT vote for Obama based on the
color of his skin. There are others that ONLY voted for him BECAUSE
of the color of his skin. Both of those are sad reasons to cast or
not cast a vote for this man.
History unfolded and continues to unfold in front of our eyes in this
election. No more can the “minorities” in the United States cry out
that the “playing field” is not level. Mr. Obama has pulled a victory
that many blacks, whites, indian, asian etc. people felt that they
would never see in their lifetimes. It is truly a shame that Obama’s
grandmother did not live another day to see this historic moment come
to pass in this country. Today is the day that young Americans of
EVERY race can KNOW that they too could one day be the ANYTHING they
are willing to work towards.
The position of President will bring many complications to Obama’s
life. There will no doubt be challenges in front of him that are to
be overcome and battles that will have to be fought. Up to and not
excluding hatred of the worst kind directed towards him. There may
also be the thoughts, plots and attempts on his life that all
Presidents face, because hatred knows no color.
Obama didn’t have my vote. I suppose I could dribble about why I
think McCain was a better choice and I had to make a decision between
the less of two evils but none of that matters this morning. There is
no going back.
You know that whole nonsense about God creating the earth, a snake
that talked to a woman in a garden, two people that ate fruit from
the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Jesus being the Son of God,
died and brought back to life, returning for us oneday….yeah I fell
for the whole thing. I’m a Christian man. I understand that many of
you that may read this will question my sanity and intelligence based
on that, but that’s okay. I’m used to it. There will be no apology
from me for being a Christian. I truly believe that Jesus is the
Christ the Son of The Living God. And that leaves me in a pretty
There is no doubt in my mind that God’s will was carried out in this
election last night. And while I may not understand the plan that God
has for the USA, I know that He maintains control with his infinite
wisdom and has allowed this to come to pass for a reason. The
Republican party nor the Democratic party, nor any other party can
dethrone God. Now I know what some of you are thinking. “Mr.
Christian thinks it’s the end of the world because what he thinks is
the ‘antichrist’ has been elected.” That is absolutely NOT what I’m
thinking. I’m not eating worms this morning, I’m not distraught, I’m
at peace. And I’m left with a decision to make.
I have made the decision that I will not respond to Obama the way
that many of you have responded to President Bush. I already know
that I do not agree with Obama on many of the issues that were at the
forefront of his campaign. That does not allow me to cast my support
for him to swine. I vow to lift this man up in prayer because our
country will need it and no matter who the leader is they will need
President-elect Obama, my prayers are with you as you approach your
inauguration. You will have my support even when you do not have my
approval. I pray for your family. Your little girls whose laughter
will fill the halls of the White House in just a few days. Prayers
for your wife to support you and have a vision for the greater good
of our country. I will plea with the Living God for your safety and
guidance but most importantly I will pray for God’s will to be done
through you. I hope you are up to it sir.
