Change and Hope

So Barack Obama is now the President Elect. Starting next January we here in America are going to have 4 years (hopefully that's all) of an Obama administration. I was sitting there watching the TV when they announced it and all I could think of was, well America you got what you asked for. For the past 4-8 years we have all been inundated with anti-Bush slams and a lot of talk about change. Well, I fear that we are going to have "change"; and a lot of it.

This election would not be as big of a deal if it were not for the number of seats that Republicans have lost in Congress. For at least the next 2 years the Democrats are going to have carte blanche on any policies and bills that they want to pass. This country just took a radical turn to the left. As I look at the TV and see all the Obama supporters cheering in the streets of Chicago waving their "Change" posters around in the air I wonder: What about this amazing country do they want to change so badly? Is it the healthcare system that everyone in the world, except us, think is the best around? Is it the war in Iraq that has steadily been getting better, and keeping us safe? Is it the millions of opportunities left out there to make something of yourself and advance yourself in the world if you are just willing to put in some hard work? America is the greatest nation this world has ever seen, and they just voted to "change" it.

As I look back on this campaign, and into the future, I do have hope though. Hope that as President of the free world Barack Obama will realize all the power that he has. I hope that he will be the man that he has said he is for the past couple months, and not the one that he has been for the past couple years. He touted himself as a man who could work across the aisle but his record does not show it. He said he was a uniter but his record shows him as one of the most partisan Senators of the past 4 years. I hope Obama falls very far to the right and lands somewhere in the happy middle where most Presidents have been, and should be. Because right now he is a lot more to the left and a lot more of a radical than, I think, most people realize. I hope that the true colors of Barack Obama do not come out, but stay hidden behind this mask of middle America that he has been wearing all these months.

So America, you got what you asked for, Barack Hussein Obama will be the next President of the United States of America. Here we go...

Excellently done, son. Could not have said it better myself. We know the Lord is in control of all things and it is He "by whom all things consist". There is a bible verse that says He puts rulers into power and takes them back out again at His bidding. What do non-Christians do in times like these? Anyway, this is an excellent blog Nick. You have an amazing grasp on what is happening. Love, Mom

Sooooo pretty much your a racist who hates gays? Thats what I got from reading your post. jklolroflrofl

I think Oboma can do whatever he wants. With the huge amount of support he has he could do anything and people would praise him for it. I really believe his true colors will come out and he, and liberals, will bring a lot of very very far left policies into America and people will clap and cheer as all of our liberties are taken away(my own opinion of course).
This all being said if that does happen he wont be reelected.
